beatstone2,129,795+Artists In The Plus is proud to bring you a very special "Concerts In The Plus!' with Guitar Legend +Preston Reed. (Banner Photo By +Ralf Hebauf ) +Preston Reed has virtually reinvented how the acoustic guitar is played. Reed practices a flamboyant self-invented style, characterized by percussive techniques and simultaneous rhythm and melody lines that dance and ricochet around each other, giving his music a level of excitement that is unparalleled among today's guitarists. Playing an array of guitars from acoustic to electric to classical Reed's vast range of explosively original music will forever change your expectation of a guitarist. First-time listeners find it impossible to believe that they're hearing just the one musician, in real time. Reed attacks the entire instrument in a never-ending search for the orchestra he knows is lurking inside. At full tilt, his fingers, thumbs, fists and hands at once suggest a drummer, keyboardist, bassist and several guitarists at work. The most impressive thing about Reed's technique, though, is that it doesn't draw attention to itself. His compositions are far from abstract virtuosic displays; even without lyrics he creates vivid, engrossing scenes. Sometimes the effect is almost onomatopoetic. Reed generates visual stimuli with every tweak of his instrument, thus augmenting his wordless compositions with an aura of the poetic. Each tune is a story in itself with a potent, cinematic atmosphere and an almost tangible thread of communication between Preston Reed and the listener. Reed's entry into this guitar odyssey was inauspicious enough, his path thereafter largely self-discovered. A few chords learned from his guitar playing father, a brief, very brief, flirtation with the ukulele, clandestine practice sessions of his favourite Beatles and Stones songs on dad's guitar .... and then a too-strict classical guitar teacher led to premature retirement. At 16, however, Reed heard Jefferson Airplane's rootsy blues offshoot, Hot Tuna. His interest was rekindled big time. Acoustic guitar heroes John Fahey and Leo Kottke were studied, their styles absorbed but not imitated, and at this point things really begin to get interesting because, at 17, Reed, by now precociously proficient, played his first live gig, supporting beat poet Allen Ginsberg at the Smithsonian Institute. Just getting on a train from his native Armonk in New York State to Washington was a cool adventure. And it was just the first of many, not least of which was the one which resulted from his signing his first deal with a major record company, MCA, through the auspices of his friend, country singer-songwriter Lyle Lovett. Determined to make the most of this opportunity, Reed pushed himself to go beyond the standard fingerpicking styles he'd perfected. The result was the beginnings of Reeds startlingly innovative style, with its percussive, two-handed fretboard attack, that you hear today and which has caused guitar luminaries such "Concerts In The Plus!"

Anybody who knows anything about landline phones able to help?

When landline phone connected to main phone socket in house, just get lots of noise when trying to ring out and those calling in get an engaged tone. ( Internet is approx 10Mb slower on download but, is working OK)

When landline phone plugged into test socket, can ring in and out ok (downside is though no internet if phone plugged into test socket)

So, my question is before I start talking to BT when they ring me back is, does it sound like something with BT's equipment or something to do with my phone?

Couple of pics from earlier this evening after I had got off the train.

Both pics feature a guest appearance by Lemon the cat who lives up in the village but, seems to like hanging out around the station.

Pleased to see after the hard work by me and many many others in Birmingham and lots of people at other Via Lux Anomalies over the last couple of months that ADA is back

ADA has fully returned to the Resistance after being reactivated through their Via Lux victory. Was it a pyrrhic victory or will she turn the tide in the battle between the Factions? Only time will reveal the answer.

What is known, is that another XM Anomaly event will occur on November 12th, 2016. The stakes are unknown at this point. It will be the only major XM Anomaly event that is being measured prior to the end of the year. Small localized XM flair ups, while unlikely, could occur prior to the New Year. However, nothing on the scale of a major XM Anomaly event is being predicted beyond the November 12th XM Anomaly event.

As our researchers learn more, they will provide additional details.

One of those days when I wish it wasn't so far between Talsarnau and Aberystwyth.

I didn't sleep well last night meaning I'm half tempted to lie down on the bench I'm sat on here at Machynlleth station. Unfortunately the train in pic was the one from Aberystwyth to Machynlleth (then onward to Birmingham International via various stations) and not my last train of the day.

I haven't had to chance to watch it yet but, a new international tv channel has started on +Freesat​.

The international version of Arirang from South Korea joins a number of other International channel versions (mostly news based but, some have documentaries etc) including:

CCTV (China)
Bloomberg (USA)
CNN (USA)
France 24 (France)
RT (Russia)
NHK (Japan)
CNBC (USA)
PBS America (USA)
Al Jazeera (I think it's Saudi Arabia but, I'm not sure)
Channels 24 (Nigeria)
Irish TV (Ireland)
JamTV (shown for a few hours on a Saturday and Sunday nights on I think the community channel) (Jamaica)

Plus there's a couple of CBS channels but, they just show old repeats.

Spotted this in the letters page of the latest issue of the +Cambrian News​ (Meirionydd edition (might be in other editions)).

At first it seemed a slightly over the top response to a play and then I saw the address and thought it must be a holiday home owner having a rant until I saw the name of the letter's author and the plays name and I had a "light bulb moment".

I don't know if it was Malcolm Pryce himself who did it or one of the play's marketing team but, Malcolm Pryce (alleged author of the letter) is the name of the author of the book the play is based on.

A clever piece of marketing tucked in with all the other letters.

Sadly I wasn't quick enough with my camera but, I just saw a Jaguar XJ car which had been turned into the car equivalent (as in it hadn't been boosted up to pick up height) of a pick up truck with the back cut out so, there was a flat bed bit.

Certainly a first for me.

Spotted in Aberystwyth if you want to try and spot it.

Person A decided to bs to Person B about why I hadn't done something meaning I got email from Person B telling me to contact Person A to sort out certain things when in fact I'd been told in email by Person A over a month ago that they would get back to me and I was waiting for a response from them.

Needless to say I found original email from Person A and copy and pasted the relevant bit for Person B.

Quite glad I've got into the habit of labeling and saving certain emails in Gmail.

I'm quite prepared to get an earful if it's my screw up but, if someone is trying to drop me in it to cover their own arse then I'm not a happy chappy.

According to the delivery man Amazon have been doing it for a while but, I just had my first delivery on a Sunday.

I had got the text saying delivery would be between 2pm and 3pm this afternoon but, I thought it must be some sort of misprint or maybe it meant delivery tomorrow between 2pm and 3pm (deliveries have always been between Monday and Saturday) but, it's just arrived.

Package contained:

- Hellboy ( have seen before but, now have on Blu-ray)
- Taxi (the original French version and not the crud American remake starring Jimmy Fallon and Queen Latifah. I've seen it several times before but, finally found a copy on Blu-ray that didn't metaphorically cost several arms and legs)
- Minions ( haven't seen it before but, they always seem to steal the show in the Despicable Me films so, will be interesting to see them in their own film)

- Fuel (An 8 year old PS3 game but, I saw the guys from Achievement Hunter playing it a while back and it looked as though it might be good so).___

Usually when there's something brand new coming to Netflix (in particular when seemingly made by Netflix) there's trailers and all sorts of publicity in the build up to the launch but, the first I knew of this was earlier today when I stumbled across it whilst looking at what was new.

From what I can workout from a quick bit of googling, ABC are showing it in the USA (which is why the trailer in this post has the ABC logo in the corner) and Netflix are showing it across the rest of the world.

Unlike most Netflix shows where the whole series is released in one go, it's being released an episode at a time as it's being shown in the US. Meaning it's an episode a week.

So far only the pilot has been released and as with a number of pilots for Tv shows it could go either way.

On the one hand there's the potential of a modern day more serious West Wing but, due to the fact I've only seen Kieffer Sutherland in action stuff like 24, maybe it'll go that sort of way.

Only one way to find out and that'll be to wait until next Thursday's episode.___

I've got me hands on Allo.

Initial impressions, leave the text (aka SMS) stuff to the Hangouts app and have Google Assistant as a stand alone app.

But, I'll give it a bit longer and see what happens. Not fully decided on Google Assistant but, could be useful.

So that means that Channel 4 might have been able to outbid the BBC for the Great British Bake Off but, before they have even filmed an episode, they have lost Mel, Sue and Mary Berry.

Will Paul Hollywood stay or leave?

Not just tempted, I'm very, very tempted to repost a pic I've just seen on Twitter of 2 men who allegedly refused to get out of seats on a train reserved for a disabled person and her friend.

As there is multiple sides to all stories, I've only just managed to resist the urge to post the pic as I don't believe people should be electronically tarred and feathered unless it's proven without a doubt what they did but, I always get out of the reserved seat if the person with the reservation turns up and despite my gammy leg and wooden walking stick I'm prepared to give up my seat for an elderly or disabled person. It's common bloody decency when train travelling.

Netanyahu was going on about being best buddies with the USA and how the USA has got Israel's back and Obama starts off talking about Israeli President Shumon Peres (who back in the nineties worked with Yasser Arafat (then leader of the Palestinians) to seemingly almost bring peace between Israel and Palestine until some idiot went and killed Arafat and everything went to crap again).

Obama intriguingly sneaks Palestine into his comments a few more times and mentions work to be done about Israeli settlements all of which I'm sure Netanyahu would have preferred not to have been mentioned as he strikes me from everything I've read and seen as the sort of person who given half a chance would wipe the West Bank and Gaza off the map rather than seek a peaceful solution if the world would just turn it's back for a minute.

Admittedly I don't drive but,it does seem like a clever idea. As well as protecting cyclists also saves having your car door damaged by a passing vehicle.

Obviously if you drive on the right hand side of the road you need to use your left hand instead of your right as indicated in the video.

Another teaser for Still Game but, this time there's also the news that the new series starts on 7th October on BBC One Scotland.

UPDATE: Has just been confirmed by twitter.com/bbcscotland that it'll be shown UK wide on BBC One starting on the 7th October which is bloomin brilliant.

Just a little video put together by Joss Whedon.

Personally if I was eligible to vote, my vote would be for a Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders as president and vice president as I think they would do a far better job for the USA and the World but, that pairing happening now is about as likely as me suddenly renouncing my Welshness and becoming an England supporter.

I've never told anyone which way to vote in a local, UK or European election so, I'm not going to tell you which way to vote in November in the US but, I will ask you to not just rely on the soundbites and what the general media are saying. Dig into what the candidates are actually saying via online resources and make your own mind up and make sure your registered to vote. You may not think your vote is important but, every vote counts.

I wouldn't be rushing to vote for him but, I guess someone must have had a word with Boris Johnson because compared to his seemingly usual bumbling self he does seem very serious Foreign Minister like in the press conference he gave in the UN.

Intriguing tech and car news.

Apple are in talks to buy either all or part of McLaren.

Sounds a bit unusual, you would have thought they would have teamed up with a US car manufacturer but, this is from the Financial Times who have better things to do with their time than make up stories.

Could mean an Apple F1 team.

Could be good or could it be bad,

Looks pretty impressive visually but, all could hang on what the "reason" is

More of a featurette than a trailer but, for those like me who aren't really aware who Luke Cage is, here's a chance to get up to speed ahead of the launch of his new show on Netflix at the end of the month.

For those who don't know Resistance members are unofficially known as Smurfs due to the Resistance's blue colour and the Enlightened members are known unofficially as Frogs due to their green team colour.

Stumbled across this whilst checking if Allo was ready for me to download yet.

A clever little app which allows you to help improve Google apps with the information it provides.

Handy for something to kill a few minutes with or longer if you so wish.

Confirmation via Official Google blog post that Allo is being rolled out as we speak.

If the rollout of Duo is any indication, the rollout will be spread out over several days so, don't automatically expect to get it today.

Something to bear in mind the next time you hear the American media or US politicians trying to scare everyone silly about your chances of being killed by terrorists.

Not sure what the numbers are for the UK but, I would have thought the odds were similar or higher.

As far as I know, almost 3 weeks after the mess at Festival No. 6, this is the first time that the organisers have publicly said sorry although they do go on in the report to try and suggest they had no idea the flooding could happen.

Not sure if the word is eager or desperate but, Amazon seem to be at least 1 of the 2 by slashing the price of fire sticks (their equivalent of a Chromecast) by £25 for new subscribers to Amazon Prime and aiming the discount at those who used to watch Clarkson, May and Hammond on Top Gear.

Off the top of my head, I've not known them to do this form of discount before for any of their TV shows before.

Looks like it might be good.

Whilst the video title says it's out on dvd, I think this might be for those in the US or New Zealand ( both have already shown it in the cinemas) because it only just opened in cinemas in the UK this weekend.

It's directed by the same guy whose directing or going to be directing (not sure if filming is underway yet) the new Thor film.

Having heard earlier this week that filming had started for the second Super Troopers film, I was inspired this evening to watch the first one which I've not done in a while.

Bad News: lost my copy on DVD :( (still isn't available in the UK on Blu-ray as far as I know)

Good News: turns out it's on Netflix. :)

So, once me grub has cooked tonight's film watching will begin.

Not sure if I should be concerned but, woke up just now with power off. Thought it was power cut but, turned out to be something had tripped the trip switch whilst I was asleep.

Power is back on now and everything seems fine.

V pleased that mobile phone was close to fully charged and it has the torch function on it.

Interesting to see a real world use of a Tesla Powerwall and used in conjunction with some solar panels it can fairly dramatically reduce the use of electricity from the National Grid.

Obviously results will vary but, a family household using a Tesla Powerwall hooked up to solar panels in the summer only ended up needing 7% of their electricity from the National Grid during 1 week this summer.

The expert seems to reckon that similar setups could mean people producing 75% to 80% of their own households electricity in the UK despite several months of not very sunny during the winter.

For more info etc, watch the video below.

One of my favourite regularly updated YouTube channels is the Ask This Old House channel.

They regularly put up old full episodes on their channel and it's full of tips for fixing or doing allsorts of things around the house or outside the house.

This is a trailer for the 15th series which is starting on PBS this month but, gives you an idea of some of the stuff they cover

(Only just found out about it being on PBS in the US so, will have to keep an eye on the UK version of PBS to see if they decide to show it on there)
