Microsoft to launch "Spotify for TV"

Hey TTV Fans Harrington here,

We all love Spotify right? But how amazing would it be to to be able to not just listen to free music, but to watch free TV shows as well! Microsoft have announced their plans to launch a free streaming TV service in the coming days. "But we've already got BBC iplayer" you might say. Well stop being a BBC fanboy bitch. This service already has many programs from different channels signed up, including the likes of Tropical TV favourite, Peep Show! Plus many shows from the BBC and hopefully some shows from across the pond also. With 30 second ads every half-an-hour it'll be just like watching TV in that respect as well. It's also set to hit the Xbox 360 later this year which we are all excited about. Finally me and picky can watch episodes of Countdown together and play along without the use of the shitty board game version he bought me for Christmas. It's set to be big, and you heard it here first (unless you read it in the paper yesterday, like me.) I mean, what? Tropical TV sources it's own information...
Much love, Harrington. X

Asher Roth - D.O.A

Fabolous - Loso's Way

Fabolous has managed to muster up alot of hype for his upcoming LP 'Loso's Way', and it isn't unwarented, the New York MC is really killing it with the tracks so far leaked from the album. So after two poor albums, and not a big hit since 2005's 'Breathe' will one of the most talented young rappers finally get his defining album? I think so, this could be one of the surprises of 09.

Longest Eclipse in 100 Years

Animal Collective - My Girls

Baltimore natives, Animal Collective released their album back in January, and I'm ashamed to say I haven't given it a good listen, as it's meant to be one of the best albums of the year so far, if not, the best. After this amazing video and addictive track, I'm going to boot up Spotify and give it a proper listen. You should too.

Style Vol.4

I decided recently that when I hit 30, I will live with a big beard for the rest of my days. The bearded look teamed with shirt and blazer is pretty much unbeatable and this bloke pulls it off better than most. Long live the beard, we will be at one with each other soon.

Casablancas Solo Album

I've been wanting to post this for a few days now, because ever since I heard the news of The Strokes' lead singer Julian Casablancas embarking on a solo mission to provide music for the world I've been getting excitement tingles all over my genitals. The Strokes' fourth album has been much anticipated and is seemingly taking forever, this album from Casablancas should be a treat as it is free from the pressure of that comes with writing an album for one of the most influential bands of the last 10 years. There is even a a movie-type trailer for thee album 'Phrazes for the Young'

Russia Vs South Park

A Russian TV station has cut a scene featuring Vladimir Putin, the episode depicts him as a desperate, corrupt, war-hungry leader.....So the Russian channel decided to edit the episode so it didn't feature Putin in the 2005 episode at all. Sometimes I do feel lucky to live in the UK and not just because we can watch un-edited South Park episodes.

Style Vol.3

Simple, clean and classic, the combo of pastelle blue shirt and the sand coloured shorts really works, and it's summer(apparently!?) so the classic rolled-up, no socks, boat shoe look is a favourite of mine. And he pulls off the four eyed look quite smashingly also.

Funny or Die

Funny or Die..

It's like Youtube but celebrities make videos that have:
Budgets, Make-up, Special Effects, Additional Casting, Production Design
apart from that it's exactly like Youtube.

Xbox 360's are not just for Christmas...

... they're for life kids (or at least for the next few years) and 2009 is no exception.

PS3 owners should be feeling left out this year as Microsoft revealed at the E3 gaming conference: not 1, not 2, not 3, but fuck loads of new features. I have listed 4 of the ones that I deem most exciting below for you lovely people;

1) Starting off with what is undoubtedly the most intriguing of them all, Project Natal. A new plug-in for the Xbox 360 which allows you to control the whole system with your body. (Microsoft perhaps trying to steal some of the Wii's thunder?) See the vid for more:

2) Microsoft and Sky are coming together to bring the Sky Player to the Xbox 360. Basically, if you live in the UK and you have a Sky subscription you can view loads of things on demand, and you can also watch live TV with your friends and their avatars. The video below will explain a bit more, skip past the first 40 seconds or so to get to the footage.

3) Joy Ride is a free racing game available to download soon from Xbox LIVE where you play as yourself, against your other friends avatars. It looks fun, and it's free.

4) Last and not least, it's 1 vs 100. No in all honesty, I don't know too much about this one yet. But I believe it's going to be the first of the four to hit our Xbox's this summer. First impressions suggest a real-time online gameshow for Xbox LIVE with the chance to win real prizes. Check the vid:

There are plenty more where they came from. Head over to the Official Xbox Youtube page for more, and of course the Xbox website. Facebook and Twitter on your Xbox? Obviously.

I am very excited and even slightly aroused by what seems to be a future-proof gaming system. Yes, now and then you get 3 red rings on the front of it, and it breaks completely and either takes weeks for Microsoft to repair, or you run out of warranty and have to fork out sixty quid, but we love it.

Xbox FTW!
I shall see you all online over the summer to test out these exciting new features:

Hey TTV fans, Harrington here.

If you head over to you'll see something called "Brink." It's a short film from the makers of Skins. I've watched it and I actually think it's a bit shit, but I thought I'd point you in it's direction. Why you say? Because a couple of months ago I attended auditions to be in it, and narrowly missed out on the main part. I was however, an extra in the nightclub scene. You can't actually see me properly, at any point. But I was raving it up on the dancefloor and walking past several times. It is rumoured this show could become a series, or the actors could become a part of the Skins cast.

I'm not bitter. I promise.

The Cleveland Show.. First Episode

Here's the Pilot for the Cleveland show..


There's potential but it's a shame things from "Family Guy" are in the show..
