The office is a mockumentary that stars Ricky Gervais as the David Brent a would-be comedian who runs a paper merchants in slough.
The premise is simple. Brent is the cringe worthy boss that most people have had he just wants you to love him at any cost but wants to people to have upmost respect for him. The comedy its self isn't a laugh a minute show it much more relies on the build up of Brent's attempts (and always demise) of his quest for fame. A running theme throughout is Tim and Dawns love story which is basically what the show is about, they kept the viewers watching and brent kept them laughing.
There are no weak spots in this tight ship. It's dastardly clever writing and editing make it seem so believeable and the extraordinary acting from Ricky Gervais is astonishing from a man with no previous experience of acting. Just the right amount of episodes the right amount of laughs and the right amount of heart makes this a must see for any connoisseur of comedy.
I managed to pick one of these up off a friend for a mere £79 bargain right?!
These things have so much going for them. Lets talk about ease of use first of all.
You could be a caveman being thawed out from the most remote part of the world with no language skills and you'd have downloaded played and set a high score on temple run in minutes. Skipping between the options and depending on how good your WIFI is the internet is usually pretty speedy.
The touch screen is marvelous and the technology has come along miles since the first touchscreen MP4 devices where you'd have to crush the circuit board to select and option.
The camera is maybe one let down taking still shots isn't great in low light it's pretty bad and you can't really get a great picture.
The HD video camera on the other hand is FANTASTIC it supports 720HD and with a little know how you could easily put together an amateur film here is some shots put together by a Cheap app £1.59 if I remember! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VwnT-Z8Iiw0&feature=fvwrel
I've rarely performed at a gig where a SM58 has not been infront of me and the few times I have i've noticed the difference immediately. The sound production from your run of the mill mic will never rub shoulders with the shure often not sensitive enough to pick up the soft breathy lower range while the high screech proves to much.
The Shure however will never let you down. I sing in a band with a family member and he had two 58's passwed down to him, those having being heavily gigged for no less than 15 years and they show NO signs of giving up.
Not only known for there superb ability in capturing all the depths from a singers range, being able to keep up with the power from a Joplin-esque howl to a booming cash-like growl.
Lets not forget the price either. You can easily pick one up for under £100 and they're ideal for studio instrument recording or live vocal recording, and are built like tanks i know most venues managed to hold onto their tobacco-beer splattered mics for at least a decade so look after them well and they can easily last you a lifetime.
