By Hans Ebert @hanseberthk Whether we want to or not, social media has not only entered our lives, in some instances, it’s taken them over with seemingly no end in sight. We’re becoming, or have already become slaves to technology without even knowing it. The music industry, for example, never saw it coming despite file [...]

By Hans Ebert Hear that sound? It’s the sound of silence. Real silence. See what I’m doing? I’m doing nothing other than gathering my thoughts, blocking out meaningless distractions, and spending some much needed Me Time by breaking bread with myself and cutting myself off from being drawn into the online world and “sharing” and [...]

By Hans Ebert Often, it’s feeding evil more evil. It’s even creating new evil.

By Hans Ebert Here’s the problem: I really don’t have time for nor do I like many people these days. Blame social media for this. Like what happens when suffering from too much of anything, everyday we’re inundated with information overload. Of course, it’s a personal call whether to stay or to go, but even [...]

By Hans Ebert After an overkill of importance placed on the Super Bowl Half-time show, this, too, has now come and gone. Though realising that one had to be there to fully understand and appreciate the pomp and ceremony of the occasion, for television audiences not knowing anything about the teams playing and, depending on [...]

It’s his “Happy” in that it’s simple in its infectiousness, and has that added twist of having his millions of fans wonder, “But what does HE mean and who’s this song for and about? Selena Gomes?”  The track “What Do You Mean” has arrived at a time when Justin Bieber was looking perilously close to [...]

I was listening to a couple of tracks recorded by the Beatles today that are somewhat obscure- “I’ll Be Back”, “You Can’t Do That”, “Rain” with it’s brilliant false ending, and “I’m Looking Through You” as part of my ongoing “therapy” to stay true to music, and believe that there’s a light at the end [...]
