This week on Diff’rent Strokes, Jade and Dave kicks off the first show of the year with a look at what’s coming in TV, music and the online world.
Dave is unsurprisingly anticipating on season four of RuPaul’s Drag Race while Jade offers some real comedy highlights like Napoleon Dynamite – the animated series.
Jade is looking forward to The Ting Tings‘ much-delayed new album while Dave predicts that vintage blues singer Lana Del Rey will be the Adele of 2012. Both our DS duo are strangely mutually excited about No Doubt and Garbage‘s massive comeback albums.
Jade reckons that this could be the year Google + achieves ubiquity and expresses her deep wishes for Netflix (or something similar) to be established in Australia. Meanwhile, Technologically Tardy Dave explains that he just got an iPod Touch and is desperate for free WiFi everywhere he goes now.
Jade checks out the post-apocalyptic new sci-fi series Falling Skies. The story is set in a world post alien invasion where 90% of the world’s population has been wiped out and it follows group of human survivors who fight back. The series is produced by Steven Spielberg and stars Noah Wyle (ER), Moon Bloodgood (Terminator Salvation) and Drew Roy (iCarly).
Dave gives his first impression on Google’s new social networking platform: Google +. It’s currently still only accessible via invite from someone who has a profile, however it has been estimated that the site will have 20 million users worldwide by the end of the week. What’s the verdict on its functions and features? We’ll let you know.
Jade reviews Kaiser Chief‘s new album The Future is Medieval and the exciting digital promo route they’ve gone down to allow fans to create their own versions of the album. The English rockers’ first released The Future is Medieval via their website at the start of June. The physical edition only arrived in stores a few weeks ago. Discussions are definitely to be had about the priority of CD albums these days.
