No poetry.

I love you, three one syllable words I dedicate to you. There aren’t enough poetic comparisons of violets and rubies to proclaim it. I find my brain exploring your features, never once comparing them to an autumn rose or something along those vivid lines. I honestly love you, simplistic but divine, like you.

The insta explore feature is really fucking with me. Before I had to actively search if I wanted to creep on people, but how am I supposed to resist lurking when these photos be up in my face?


A feature-length documentary, Kvadrat explores the realities of techno DJing, using the example of Andrey PUSHKAREV, a Russian DJ recognized worldwide. Filmed as a hybrid between a road-movie and a music video, the film not only illustrates the festive atmosphere of techno night clubs, but also reveals the lesser known side of this profession: weeks of track selection, lengthy travel, difficult schedule. The film suggests to reconsider the stereotype of a popular musician, to find out whether the artist is happy, to ponder what’s most important to him and his audience? Shot in Switzerland, France, Hungary, Romania and Russia, the film omits the typical documentary elements: no interviews, no explanatory voice-over, no facts, no figures. The visuals and the techno music replace them, leaving the detailed interpretation to the viewer.

5 things we hate about Windows 10

We like many of the new features in Windows 10, but there are some things we’re not so keen on. Here are six things we don’t like about Windows 10.

Windows 10 was unveiled by Microsoft during a special event on 30 September. It’s got a lot going for it: there’s a new Task View, a new Snap Assist feature, Windows Explorer improvements, Universal apps and lots more. However, there are some things that we’re not so keen on (though they’re all subject to change as Windows 10 is still in beta). Here are five things we don’t like about Windows 10.

1. The name

This point could be seen as trivial but it’s the first thing that springs to mind when talking about Windows 10… where’s Windows 9? Perhaps it meant to call its Windows 8.1 update Windows 9, but it didn’t. So why, oh why, did Microsoft skip right past Windows 9 and go straight for number 10? Microsoft says that it’s because it’s such a huge update, but that seems like an odd excuse to us.

2. Multiple desktops

While the ability to have multiple desktops in Windows 10 is undeniably useful, it definitely needs some tweaking. Sure, being able to effectively divide work programs from leisure apps is neat, but the fact that you can’t also have separate icons on each desktop is maddening. What’s the point of banishing Netflix to another window if its icon is still winking at you tantalisingly from the desktop?

3. Wallpapers

Another frustrating feature is the fact that you currently can’t set different wallpapers for different desktops. It means you can’t lead the double life of hiding your One Direction problem on your home desktop, whilst maintaining a professional demeanour at work with the inoffensive Michael Buble. On a serious note, however, it also makes switching rapidly between desktops somewhat disoirentating, as it’s sometimes difficutl to differentiate between them immediately.

4. The return of the Start Menu

Yes, ok, the return of the Start Menu is also one of the things it’s got going for it in the eyes of some, but hear us out on this one. PC Advisor Editor-in-Chief Matt Egan is particularly bothered by the return of the Start Menu.“For all that’s wrong with Windows 8, the lack of a Start Menu isn’t one of them,” he explains. “Using Search to find apps, web pages, files and docs is much faster and more intuitive. Pinning them to the Taskbar equally so. And the Start Screen fulfils all the deeper functions required of the Start Menu.”“People don’t like change, and that is the only reason that Windows 10 has a Start Menu. Microsoft should have had more courage, and limited the retrograde steps to those that actually make Windows better again.”

5. The whole strategy is confused

Looking back at the previous three points it seems clear that Microsoft’s strategy is confused. It’s all over the place, in fact.  For example, as Matt also points out, Microsoft spent lots of time promoting Windows 10 for desktop and enterprise during the launch event, putting back in Windows 7 features, but then it made a big play of touch and hybrid devices.“Microsoft is trying to appease Intel’s desire to drive forward sales of thin and light consumer laptops and tablets (because Intel and Microsoft missed the boat on mobile), whilst keeping enterprise and desktop PC users happy,” Matt suggests. “It’s probably doomed. It is a knee-jerk reaction to failure, rather than a long term revolution, and it smacks of a company that has lost touch with its customer base.”

Hey Nat! So I just realized that you've never drawn any of your OCs in a more realistic style like you do for your HP fanart. I'm wondering if there's a reason to it? I would love to see Remi and Anna's faces in more detail, is it something you'd be interested in drawing too? Perhaps it could be fun to explore their features? :) Up to you! ^^ As always, thanks for drawing and providing home for my heart! (me? sentimental?? what are you talking about, that's ridiculous...)

I was thinking some more about this message x) (I’m an overthinker, don’t mind me :)) To be honest I’m really curious myself :) but I’m still a little bit affraid of the effect. I feel safe in this more cartoony style but I think that maybe I could give it a try and draw them more realistically :) NO! You know what, this is horrible! You made wonder how they’d look like irl and now I can’t stop thinking about it!
