Doug Paisley - Starter Home Music Album Review

Gracefully navigating the intersection of folk-rock and country, the gentle-voiced songwriter turns detailed images of domestic tranquility and promise into reflections on disappointment.
For a decade, Canadian singer/songwriter Doug Paisley has turned quiet, specific moments into inquiries on life’s larger struggles. On his 2010 breakthrough, Constant Companion, Paisley used the inevitability of endings to explore understanding oneself, the only possible “constant companion.” For 2014’s Strong Feelings, he mulled death and its uneasy relationship with life, or how their juxtaposition ripples into every wave of existence. And now, on his fourth album, Starter Home, Paisley details the chasm that separates what poet Seamus Heaney described as “getting started” and “getting started again.” These songs examine how the person you are never truly aligns with the person you want to be, especially when you stumble upon a sticking point that’s hard to move past.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 Release Date, Cast, Trailers, & News

Marvel has mostly stayed tight-lipped about its plans for the Marvel Cinematic Universe after Avengers 4, but Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is one of the few films that it has confirmed is on the way.

Of course, now that the team has crossed paths with Thor and the other Avengers in Infinity War, things could look very different for the Guardians going forward. Here's what we think you should expect from the film whenever it arrives.

Release date
While Marvel has confirmed that Guardians of the Galaxy 3 is on the way, it hasn't yet announced a specific release date for the film. However, we do know that the company is aiming for a 2020 release, and that it's booked out three 2020 release dates for Marvel movies, so it's a safe bet that Guardians 3 will arrive on one of the following three dates:
  • 1 May 2020
  • 31 July 2020
  • 6 November 2020
Cast and crew
No cast members have been officially confirmed for the film yet, but it's a safe bet that most of the cast of the first two movies will be returning - including Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Pom Klementieff, Bradley Cooper, and Vin Diesel.

Now, anyone who's seen Infinity War will know that not every Guardian makes it through unscathed - without being too specific. Still, there's enough speculation about how various characters will be brought back in the second part of the Thanos story that right now we're not ruling any Guardians cast members out of return appearances.

Things behind the camera are a bit less certain. In a shock turn of events, in July 2018 Disney fired series writer and director James Gunn from Guardians 3 after offensive tweets of his from a decade prior resurfaced, as part of a targeted campaign by alt-right groups.

Disney was quick to condemn the tweets, and Gunn, despite the fact that the writer/director had already apologised for the old jokes, which referred to rape and paedophilia. The company hasn't announced if it still plans to use Gunn's script, which was apparently mostly written already:

Not all fans are happy about the decision though, and there's a campaign to persuade Marvel to re-hire Gunn, arguing that he's a changed man, no longer trading on the sort of offensive and provocative humour behind the original tweets. Several Guardians cast members have backed the cause, with Dave Bautista the most vocal by far, while at the time of writing over 200,000 people have signed a Change.org petition to have Gunn reinstated.

Plot rumours
We know very little about what to expect from Guardians 3 right now, but here's what we have so far - bearing in mind that we'll have to discuss Avengers: Infinity War spoilers.

If you've seen the last Avengers movie you'll know that not all of the Guardians survived the Thanos snap at the end of the movie. In fact, only one of them did, Rocket Raccoon, who wouldn't make up much of a team on his own. So it's a safe bet that the other Guardians will be resurrected somehow - with the possible exception of Gamora, who was murdered by Thanos long before the snap (though some fan theories suggest she may live on in the Soul Stone, so even she might return).

Without knowing any more about Avengers 4, it's hard to know which Guardians will feature in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, or what they'll be up to now that Thanos is (presumably) defeated.

From previous Marvel comments we know that Guardians 3 will serve as a sort of bridge between all of the MCU movies that have happened so far and what is to come next, closing up some story threads for the current Guardians team and likely setting up a new group going forward.

One of the new characters likely to play a major part is Adam Warlock, who was teased at the end of the previous Guardians movie as the 'next evolution' of the Sovereign race. For those who don't know their comics, Warlock is a super-powered space Messiah figure who has at times controlled the Infinity Gauntlet, and has a dark side known as the Magus.

It seems pretty plausible that the third Guardians film will introduce him as a villainous figure fighting for the Sovereign one way or another, before bringing him round and setting him up as a Guardian going forward, as he has been in the comics - but we'll have to wait and see for now.

Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac Review

You probably know Synology for making NAS drives but the firm has also turned its hand to mesh networks. Here we review the MR2200ac.
Should I Buy The Synology Mesh Router MR2200ac?
Synology could do a little more to explain the many features of the MR2200ac for first-time users, but the strong performance of this mesh system, and the fine-control provided by its web browser interface make it a good option for business users or home users who have a little more experience of networking technology.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review

Though similar to the OnePlus 6T the Oppo RX17 Pro is very different thanks to the software. Here’s our full review
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
The RX17 Pro is a great looking phone with good performance and a lush display. But with a Snapdragon 710 rather than the better 845 it’s just impossible not to compare it to the OnePlus 6T which looks the same, has better software for the western market and, importantly, costs less.
If you like the look of Oppo’s interface though then there’s a lot to like. The two colour options are premium as is the build quality and the cameras are above average if not great.

Moto Z4 Play Release Date, Price & Spec Rumours

We investigate rumours surrounding the Moto Z4 Play, which could be announced in June 2019 with an in-display fingerprint sensor.
Announced in June 2018, the Moto Z3 Play was never joined in the UK by the standard Moto Z3. It's possible that for the Z4 series we will again see only the Play model go on sale here, with the Moto Z4 Play expected to be announced in the UK in mid-2019.

Dell XPS 13 (2019) vs Dell XPS 13 (2018)

Can Dell make its XPS 13 laptop any better? Well it's tried with a new 2019 model so we compare the two and explain what has and hasn't changed.
Should I Buy The Dell XPS 13 9370 (2018) Or Dell XPS 13 (2019)?
There’s a new XPS 13 in town but you’ll struggle to justify the upgrade from 2018’s model with namely a new webcam as a headline upgrade.
Sure, there are other upgrades to the the core specs but for most people, these will be fairly insignificant. The inclusion of a cheaper Core i3 model is particularly interesting.

2019 Lincoln Continental Review

If you’re tired of the same old luxury options, the 2019 Lincoln Continental provides a refreshingly retro-cool alternative.
The 2019 Lincoln Continental is a big, luxurious American sedan at a time when Americans are hardly buying big, luxurious American sedans anymore. Regardless, it’s a throwback ride with plenty of character, great value, lots of power, and a classic nameplate. We give it 7.5 out of 10 overall.
Among European and Japanese rivals with established models – S-Class, 7 Series, LS – this Lincoln stands out for several reasons, chief among them its nameplate. With the Continental, Lincoln has one of the most storied American car names.
