With Cinemas closed for the foreseeable and lockdown 2.0 already here in Ireland and looming in the UK many people are forced to entertain themselves at home once again. The main difference between this lockdown and the last one is that it is now winter and people are mostly stuck indoors. This leads to being stuck in your home ordering take always and watching movies or TV shows on one of the many apps like Amazon prime, Apple TV+ etc.
Many people are now investing in their home cinema setups and investing in things like quality projectors that can project directly from your phone and surround sound 5.1 speakers. All these things are a great addition to your home cinema setup. Another popular item this year which also ties into the work from home trend that lockdown has caused is the gaming chairs. Essentially these are cool looking office chairs that look like racing chairs that you would see in a sports car.
These are super comfortable as well as looking the part and now that people are having to invest in a work from home setup they are becoming very popular. There is a huge range of gaming chair Ireland suppliers to choose from and depending on your budget you can get some really high quality products. By investing in a comfortable gaming chair from housetech., surround sound and projectors you can really transform your home TV entertainment.
Unfortunately these lockdowns could be the death of large Cinema chains which would be a shame but it is hard to see how they can come back from this. With many streaming apps coming along each year there is a lot of competition in this sector. Who knows how long we will have to entertain ourselves at home so investing in this setup could be a good call in the long run and get us through the hard winter months ahead.
Electric scooters have come out of nowhere and have taken over the streets of many cities around the world. Many European cities have been overrun with electric scooters and there has been very little planning gone into how they should be policed but that is a matter for another post.
The Xiaomi M365 scooter was the first major electric scooter to become popular and it led the way for many companies to copy the blue print. As prices came down for this and other similar electric scooters they became more popular as well as being more socially acceptable. When they were first released they were not really considered “cool” but now they are just another part of our lives along with other advancing technologies. You can now get the Xiaomi M365 scooter from escooterireland.ie for just €479.00 which is considerably cheaper than it was a year ago from the same company admitting that they used to be retailing at €599.00.
There are now many companies trying to get on the bandwagon of the electric scooter market but there are still only a handful of good scooters on the market. No western company has really grabbed the market by the horns and it is mostly populated by companies in China who are quick to jump on any trends.
It is hard got western companies to compete with the Chinese manufacturers as the cost of making goods is so much higher. There are some companies having a go like Seat but they are entering the market at a much higher price range. There only hope of competing is to offer extended warranties, quality and better customer service.
For now if you are looking for an electric scooter that is a reasonable price, good quality and has a great spec then the Xiaomi M365 is still leading the way and it looks like it is going to stay like that for quite some time.
Finally the new release of peaky blinders is here and it is fully of surprises. Although not as action packed as season 3 and 4 which were pretty violent season 5 is more a game of mental gymnastics between rivals. Fan favorite Alfie Solomons also makes a return after much speculation as to whether he was alive or dead after being shot in the face at the end of season 5.
Tom hardy again steals the show with his performance and even though he is only in the season for all of 5 minutes he completely blows everyone away yet again. His terrifying character is quite humorous on screen although I dare see he would be vicious and terrifying in real life. We are interested to hear your thoughts on the new series below guys!
All you need to know About the Electric Scooters in the UK
An electric scooter is the best way
of saving money, and they are also eco-friendly. They are lightweight
and can cover a distance up to 20 km with a single charge. You can
easily go anywhere and can carry it on the buses and trains without
getting any sweat and problems.
In the UK, a new law is formed which take fine from that person who is using an electric scooter in the public, and if they deny paying the fine, then their vehicle will be seized.
Are electric scooters legal in the UK?
It may seem extreme, but it is the
law of the UK for banning electric scooter. It is based on the act of
1961, which is all about the rules of road traffic. The scooter is
similar to other transport vehicles, and these are viewed as the
mechanically propelled, which means that if you are using the
electric scooter, then you must have a driving license, tax, and
insurance. If you don’t have these, then you have to give fine to
The legal requirement of having the
e-scooter is way more difficult to achieve. Most of the people are
facing problems in paying taxes and having the proper insurance of
the vehicle. So they try to move around the city without having any
license and insurance. This is the main reason behind the electric
scooter to be banned in the UK.
The second reason is that the
industry in Europe has gained more than 150 million of investment
from the citizen to issue the electric scooter and if they provide
the entire scooter in the market then it will raise an issue for the
security of the citizen of the country.
When we think of back to the future we think of nostalgia, a mad scientist, futuristic cars and of course hoverboards. Very few films have impacted society as much as back to the future and it is amazing we have not had a reboot of the series in this age of reboots that has seen films like Ghostbusters which had an all female cast and was considered a flop. Other classics that have been destroyed are Blade Runners and Robocop.
Now that we mention it do we really want another classic ruined? Terminator was another one that was also dragged through the mud. But back to the future is special for a lot of the 90s kids generation. Hoverboards in particular were first mentioned in this movie and now you have a popular product called the hoverboard that in fact does not hover!
Part of the greatness of such classic films were the actors of the time who really made the characters come to life. Of course we have good actors now such as Christian Bale and Tom Hardy to name a few but something is just not the same. James Bond is a franchise that has survived not only the test of time but multiple actors over a period of 40 years. This is quite incredible to think that people back in the 1960s were enjoying a franchise that we still enjoy today.
No doubt the big wigs in Hollywood have discuss a back to the future remake as I am sure it would be a guaranteed money maker which is all they really care about these days. Sadly the art of making a movie is not as it was and big companies are now focused on making great trailers that explain the movie in full making there no need to actually go and see it but that is a post for another day! That said if there was a remake I would go to it as many people would out of curiosity more than anything. Until then I might fire up the original back to the future series this weekend.
Season 4 of one of the best TV shows ever made (yes..Peaky Blinders!) ended in an epic back stabbing from the much loved Alfie Solomons when he sold out Thomas Shelby to the Italian Mafia. The last episode of Season 4 ended with Alfie waiting patiently for Thomas to show up and have a bit of a showdown. It ended with the shooting of Alfie through the cheek and there is much debate online as to whether he has died or if he could survive it. With many people thinking that Alfie is the best character in the series thanks to another epic performance from Tom Hardy there is much hope for him to survive.
Filming of season 5 started in late 2018 and it is hoped that it will be back on our screens by late 2019. Season 4 saw a big shake up in the regular cast with several key members of the gang being shot and killed and other new cast members such as Aiden Gillans character Aberama Gold coming into the mix. It is certainly the most exciting wait for a Peaky Blinders season yet and we can’t wait for it to come! Let us know if you think Alfie survived in the comments!
