The Apprentice 2016 Top 5 Candidates I Really Want To See Get Fired!

9 11 2016

The Year is 2016, and once again the BBC treats us to one of the major BBC Highlights of the year; a TV show where a bunch of Clowns attempt to prove themselves in a series of business based tasks in hope of getting some money to start a business with. Yes, The Apprentice (UK) is back on the box and is already in full swing this year. In the past the show has delivered some spectacular moments as well as presented a series of candidates as well as a select group of clowns who most of us would not trust with a ball of string let alone £250,000.

It is one of my favourite shows of the TV Calendar Year, and is both interesting as well as very entertaining, all the time creating near cringe worthy moments, and bits and bobs which are just too painful to watch. Every year when the show returns I prepare myself for the oncoming assault of dim-witted decisions being made by people who are supposedly by their own admission ‘successful’ or ‘expert’ business men and women. Every series that comes around also comes with a select group of Characters who are in their own unique way surprising; as they somehow manage to get any distance in the show. The one thing though that gets the most surprise from me is that many of them are already running their own businesses, so why they need to come onto the Apprentice is anyone’s guess? In all honesty after nearly 12 series of The Apprentice, I am surprised that I still get surprised by all this. I know these things are coming, but still get shocked when they happen. As I look back into past series’, its amazing how far we have come, but also how contenders from previous series look far better now than anyone in the last few years. The candidates of Series 5 for instance look like viable candidates for anything thrown in their way, while more recent series (series 12 especially), show a group of jokers who don’t really appear qualified to do, well…anything.

As series 12 goes; this to me looks like the biggest list of candidates who should all be fired immediately and get the show over with on the spot right now. There are maybe 4 people I can see going the distance and be good candidates for the role, but one of those; Aleksandra, decided to quit in task 4, so now we are left with; Alana, Jessica and Grainne. For me, that’s it; you may as well sack the rest right now and jump straight into the audience’s favourite task: The Interviews. Some people in this series though have shown themselves to be in a class of their own when it comes to being top joker at clown school, and for this reason, I present to you; the Top 5 Candidates I Really Really Want/Hope to see get Fired this year:

paul-sullivan

5. Paul Sullivan – Paul Sullivan is one of those candidates that can be a real surprise. Ones who are practical in any situation and can be potentially good candidates if you give them half a chance; so far though he has not really done anything like that. No offence to guys like this, guys who are not just good workers, but also possibly brilliant leaders if people would just give them a chance (or more likely just Shut Up!). They are hard workers and come from said backgrounds, and for that they are worthy of respect. Paul though while looking like he has come from said background, has only really acted like a bullish bull in a china tea shop. He has shown high levels of attitude and frustration to tasks. Now I can respect that as watching them on TV makes me want to do the same, but has not really shown any commendable acts either. He is professional, which is more than can be said about most, but he is not much else either. There is still some hope for him I feel…but he really needs to show that he can work upon it.

courtney-wood

4. Courtney Wood – Courtney is quite clearly the Snake in the Grass for this series. For an idea of what I mean by that, here is an example from a previous series:

Courtney has not really showed himself doing much, but given that he has never been called into the boardroom, his actions have never come into question. However, he did shed his cloak on a treat a few weeks ago. Whilst out playing Croquet with his new ‘friends’, he said “I know I can beat everyone in this competition, every week I long triple firing because it just makes my life easier”. Now while this is probably the secret dream of all Candidates in the process, the simple fact he said this out of no-where, and was pretty much the first thing he said this series, just makes me lose sympathy for him. I think we all look forward to a triple firing, not just because it makes You’re Fired interesting, but also because it removes the dead weight and horrible ones a lot quicker!

sofiane-khelfa

3. Sofiane Khelfa – Sofiane is one those guys that really needs to learn how to thread; just so then he can thread his mouth shut! He talks quite a bit, maybe not as much as Karthik in all likelihood, but he has this way of making and doing things his way and only his way, and he does this by talking so much that by the time someone can actually speak and either suggest their own ideas or debate his, there is not enough time to do so. He comes off as being rude, and has made some controversial announcements, comments and actions in the show, and could be considered more of an achilles heel to a team than a player. Someone who talks too much can be annoying, someone who talks too much but for the sake of lambasting and shooting his own opinion forward to the point where it appears like no-one else’s matters – that is just horrible; and for that he needs to get the finger.

samuel-boateng

2. Samuel Boateng – If this was any other series, Samuel Boateng could potentially be a really good candidate, but it isn’t and he has proved that he is definitely not. Given the task of doing a crowd-sourcing project, he made the consistently fatal apprentice mistake of suggesting that his past experience makes him a ‘pro’ at such things, once anyone does this, they may as well just be handed a shovel. In past episodes he has actually been quite quiet and it’s only recently that he has begun to really show himself. He is pretty vocal about his opinions and suggestions, and does fight his corner well, but in a very defensive position, and when presenting upfront could be a lot more descriptive rather than hoping everyone gets him, because I don’t think anyone actually does. However, his lack of being a good candidate really came out last week, and this all relates to what I have just described. If it wasn’t for him hopelessly describing what he was trying to get a bunch of actors to play out in the middle of a train station while rehearsing it, not even the audience watching at home would have got it! It would have been just a man enjoying a thumping good walk around a station and a bunch of people falling over whenever they got nudged in the shoulder, who then burst into dance. What that represents is, well…nothing other than his belief that reincarnation involves a west end musical moment. He thinks everyone is on the same page as him, and that everything is as clear as day, but in reality he’s as clear as a concrete bunker. He is obviously a very creative person, but what he needs to do is less work on the conception and put work more into the execution; and hope he does so before his business dreams meet the point of Sralan’s (sorry, Lord Sugar’s) Index Finger of Business Death.

karthik-nagesan

1. Karthik Nagesan – Every series of the Apprentice has at least one character, someone who stands out as more than just a candidate, someone who is unique by how much of a fool they are. This year it comes down to Karthik (or K as he wishes to be called) to fulfill this role. When a new series starts, many of these contestants like to share their own opinion about themselves; but you really have to worry for someone if at any time they suggest that they are like Napoleon or Alexander The Great and consider themselves optimistic enough of their chances to one day become Prime Minister of the UK. Basically, Karthik wants to be the UK version of Donald Trump (I’ll let that one sink in). It’s not his status though that makes me want to see the back of him sooner than later. On the BBC website, there is a quote which suggests that he believes himself to be firm yet polite. Now there is one key word here that is very possibly a complete lie; the word ‘polite’. Karthik has proven himself to be possibly the most untrustworthy person in the show’s history. He is someone who believes that no matter who the actual Project Manager is for a given task, that in actual fact it is him. He feels that his words should be respected no matter how much dribble they are, and that he should be able to do no matter what he wants no matter what others like the PM say. Now while he has since calmed down, week 2 of the process should have seen him gone. For one, his idea of being allowed to sit with the advert editor for 5 minutes just to do what he wanted without articulating to his team what he wanted to actually do was just absolute nonsense and should only be reserved for the audience, plus there was no need for that level of attitude! Then his latent disrespect towards Lord Sugar in the Board Room was beyond the pale. He talked down to Lord Sugar in the same manner as someone would talk down to a child. It was the pure personification of cringe worthy and one he should have been sent home for. But of course he has since calmed down, so he could consider that his lucky break, but given what he has shown himself to be like, I doubt he will be able suppress it for long; next he will be asking for 5 minutes alone with Claude Littner (“FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT!”).

Southport Fireworks 2011

Recently, my Blog (the one that you are reading now) has celebrated some major milestones. A few months back I published my 500th blog post, WordPress informed me that my blog is officially now 7 years old, and much bigger than those, I have reached the milestone viewing number of 100,000.

100

It’s a big moment for me, as I never thought my blog would even reach that number. In the first 10 months of my blog I reached 1000 views, but I was getting less than 300 views a month. But steadily over the years the viewership has increased, and then declined (which it’s sadly doing right now), but after 7 years of blogging, my blog has been viewed 100,000 views. Now this was last week, but I thought I would still celebrate and have a chance to thank everyone who read and still reads this blog, supporting my writing, my hobby over all these years. So thank you to everyone who has read (and continues to read) my blog, supporting my writing, my hobby over all these years and I hope you will continue to read my blog in the future. Thank you all.

Top 5 Pendulum Songs

28 09 2016

PENDULUM

Back in 2008, while watching an episode of Gamer.TV, I saw a trailer for a video game. The trailer made me very excited, because it was a trailer for the game Motorstorm: Pacific Rift for the PS3. Now, not having a PS3 at the time made it rather difficult to play the game anytime soon I admit, however I did eventually buy one and got Pacific Rift soon after. Anyway, during the trailer, there was this piece of music, a piece of music I rather liked, and worked well with the Video Game Trailer, but I had no idea who was playing or what the song was called. It was very heavy, very fast and had these lyrics which sounded very Reggae. I had no idea what it was, but I was hooked, and wanted to know more. I don’t know how I found out in the end, but I was glad I did, as this discovery took me on a musical journey that would bring me to a point, a moment when my life up till that point did not really have a favourite band; but then all of a sudden; I had one. The song was called Tarantula and the band was called PENDULUM.

Originally founded in Australia in 2002 by Ztar Z6/MIDI Controller player Rob Swire, Bassist Gareth McGrillen and DJ Paul Harding; PENDULUM, a Drum and Bass group notable for mixing hard rock and electronic music into their work, would later relocate to the UK, and set the music scene on fire quickly becoming one of the most popular bands of the moment. Soon, more band members would join in the form of MC Ben Mount, Guitarist Peredur ap Gwynedd, Drummer Paul Kodish (and later KJ Sawka). Pendulum themselves would release 3 studio albums: Hold Your Colour, In Silco and Immersion, and while originally starting with Drum and Bass roots with very little in the way of vocals, more relying on instrumental pieces, the Band would go on to include vocals, and expand their portfolio into areas including Industrial and Electronic Rock as well as other genres.

PENDULUM Band

For me, I loved this band so much. I was gripped by their electronic instrument playing, mixing it with heavy/hard rock. Originally I was more in it for the rather psychedelic instrumental and electric pieces they originally started with, but as time went on became to love and enjoy their more vocal ranged pieces of music. When the band sort of disbanded back in 2010-2012, I was rather sad as I did not want this band, a band I loved to suddenly disappear, and as time went on became to get very annoyed with both Swire and McGrillen for creating Knife Party and not be Pendulum anymore. Time passed on, their music to me became nearly second-hand, and other bands took my interest, and slowly Pendulum disappeared from my heart; until recently, when supposedly the band reunited. I was excited by this, the hope that Pendulum was coming back, more albums, more music; I just could not wait for more news. While it is a bit sketchy right now as to what is going on with them, I have recently begun to get back into their music, because although they may no longer be my favourite band, they were my first and were for a good number of years. I bought all their albums, and still love a lot of their music.

Knife Party

A few months ago I began listening to them frequently again, and have come to realize how much I missed their music, and decided, that after a long time of planning this, that I would finally let you in on what my Top 5 Pendulum Songs are. Now coming up with this list was rather tricky; I mean there are a lot of really good songs in their portfolio. When I originally conceived this list I considered just doing a Top 5 from Hold Your Colour, an album I can still say proudly to this day, is my favourite album and not just of the band. I really like Hold Your Colour as it has a lot more enjoyable tracks, and is a lot more consistent I feel to that of their other albums (not to say that the others are bad). Over the years leading up to this post being written, I was sure that most of this list was going to come from Hold Your Colour and just that, but having looked back on their music, I can see this is no longer really the case, as my favourites sort of go over all 3 albums in the end. Bringing it down to 5 songs in the end was rather difficult, because they have made several really good pieces of music, several of which really strike into my head when I think of them. If this was a Top 10 post there would be a lot more variety, but I thought it would be best to just keep it down to 5 as much as I can. So, just for them to have a moment here, here are the songs that didn’t make it (but boy were close): Prelude, Slam, Fasten Your Seatbelt, Through The Loop, Sounds of Life, Girl in the Fire, Hold Your Colour (all from Hold Your Colour), Showdown, Different, Mutiny, Granite, Set Me on Fire and Crush. So now, introductions over, here are my Top 5 Pendulum Songs.

Hold Your Colour

5. Tarantula – It was the song that brought me here in the first place, and it has remained one of my favourites since. Tarantula is a strange one when you first hear it for the first time. If you hear it while it’s fast, only for you then to hear it from the beginning, you wonder if you are listening to the same piece of music. It has the same tune yes, but it’s much slower to begin with, and it’s very striking. You hear these vocals, but you’re not sure if you are hearing them right, and feel that you don’t necessarily understand them. But then it quickly builds, and then that fast track you heard once before comes to light. The slow speed side of this track sounds more brass based than Drum and Bass, but then you realize that the slow side is merely a gift, an intro, because if you want to join in, you need to know how it goes, because when it speeds up, there is no more help. The track is heavy, vicious and ferocious, much like the creature that the song is named after. It gets your heart pounding, and makes you want to dance, a very fast dance yes, and one you will need to take a break after because of, but just does not stop until it wants to. Not you, IT! Remember that, it comes with a piece of authority, one that demands attention from everyone in the room at the same time; it gives the music a near level of sentience, being, but more importantly POWER! And one that demands to command you, you have no choice; only the possibility that when it’s all over, you may have a chance to escape!

4. Watercolour – When this one first came out, I remember seeing the music video for the first time, and sort of liking it, but got a bit tired of it due to the amount of time it was on TV for. It was not until recently I was really able to appreciate it properly. One thing that I sort of cottoned onto as time went past, is how good the vocalization is in several of these songs. Not when it is a featured artist, or when it has been ripped from a film or something, but when it is from the band themselves. There are some really nice vocal pieces, many of which get featured in this list, ones you can pick up easily, and enjoy singing yourself. This song is fast, much like many of Pendulum’s songs, but also features some nice slow, near peaceful moments prolifically too. Here we get moments of their trademark styles, mixing vocals in while both being slow and fast, many a time producing a very emotional moment, such as the lyric ‘Just stay where you are’. It is generally a nice song, not a piece of music as such, but an actual song, a song with powerful lyrics, and a gentle, but still fast track to back it up, while still allowing a moment to pause, take a breath, then get back into it.

3. Witchcraft – What has to be one of their most striking yet experimental tracks; this song mixes sweet and calm melody with hard rock electric power. As it starts you hear this calm melody which slowly builds, but within a minute the pitch and mood changes as the amazing skill of Rob Swire on his main instrument of choice comes darting out of the background and demands attention, which at the same time is backed up by the rest of the band, before all charging at once in a hard rock vibe. From this moment alone it sounds more like a piece of heavy rock, but then the lyrics kick in again, and a more light-hearted pop track takes over, and even when it goes lower in temper during the chorus, it stays relatively light, before then unleashing it’s real motives once more. Much like Watercolour, it does take a quick moment to catch its breath, in a split second of near perfect silence, before then unleashing itself once more. What is rather a weird combination of musical styles in one song, backed up with Lyrics to match its themed ideas while also providing its own little moments of respite, Witchcraft is easily one of the more lyrically stand out songs from Pendulum, which still likes to provide a moment or two to let the tune do the talking.

2. The Island (Pt 1 and Pt 2) – This may come as a confusing one to people unbeknownst to the career of Pendulum; basically this song comes in two parts. When I first bought the album, I was a little confused by that, and it was not until I listened to both for the first time that I really understood. On their own, Part 1 is nice, got some really interesting, perhaps inspiring lyrics and comes with a nice beat, while Part 2 played on its own sounds rather disjointed, out-of-place, short and feels like the end of something; not an entire piece. However, when they are played together in the correct order, something really amazing is born. Much like several lyrical pieces from Pendulum, this one comes with some really interesting and deep lyrics. These lyrics are only heard in Part 1, but that is the point with Part 1. As the tune goes, it’s more a piece about discovery and awe. The pieces together tell something of a story. It takes you on a journey, you can listen to the lyrics, or you can tell your own; but the basic idea is that you have arrived on an island, you are shipwrecked, lost, anything, but you have arrived to a mysterious place, and you walk around and discover how amazing everything is, like you have landed perhaps in a personal spot or taste of heaven. You go and explore, and you see sights and spots of beauty all around you. All this time the song beats in the background, recording its own story, all the while creating a nice bumpy/jumpy soundtrack that is generally rather pleasant and passionate. Part 2 of the song tells a very different tale and creates a very different location. It slowly descends, then it starts to play a familiar tune; you imagine yourself in full glow, on this Island, this beautiful place, and as the tune returns, you believe it’s going to be more of the same, and then: A Beast is Unleashed. Everything changes, the soundtrack is entirely different, it is still jumpy, but very heavy. It’s disjointed, no longer connected, no longer a beautiful melody, now a torrent of terror. Part 1 talked about the Dawn, now here is the Dusk, and the soundtrack creates an idea of everything going wrong, more a natural siren than an actual warning. Imagine yourself back on that island, the day has gone, and the now the night is upon you, and gone is the beauty: Now stretching before you is a nightmare, not gently arousing from slumber, but instantly waking up, and bearing down on you, unrelenting, unstoppable terror. Alone, these pieces are ok, interesting, still very enjoyable: but when played together they weave a story of Magnificence and Horror, one you will be Thrilled yet Petrified to return to.

1. Propane Nightmares – One of the things I like about PENDULUM is that while it is very pop like, quite a lot of the music they create is exceptionally heavy. That is one of the things that caught me most about them when I first listened to them, that while they were a current generation pop like band, as a fan of much heavier genres of music, I could just as easily get involved and enjoy them. Yes not all of their songs are particularly heavy, but the ones that are a special treat for me, especially when they are created by fascinating sounds and backed up with really spellbinding lyrics. When this song was originally released, I had no real place or preference for it, thought it was a little confusing with t’s opening brass section, but then I heard a live version of it, and I loved the whole experience. The music starts of near gentle like with strange usage of its brass piece, but then as it builds, as the drums kick in, and the music flies from the instruments to your ears, you begin to hear something really special. The music isn’t pleasant, it isn’t friendly: What it is, is very Angry, and very Grungy. The music uses the full force of the band, every key is crucial; each beat of the drum, each pluck of the string, each tap of the key, all of it works together, to create a rather unique sound. This sound continues in a fist hammering beat like fashion which then just continues, speaking with an authority that shouts and demands every eye and ear in the room to look directly at it. Then as the tune takes a side-line, but only for a moment, the lyrics get involved. More than any song from Pendulum, I find this is the one that I recite lyrics to, especially the early line: “In a trail of fire I know we will be free again. In the end we will be one. In a trail of fire I’ll burn before you bury me. Set your sights for the sun.” The only points that this song slows down are when the band as a whole (or as much to a whole as you can get) joins in, in singing the chorus – before then of course jumping right back into the tune we all know and love – and when the tune, like many on this list, takes a brief moment of respite. The break itself is pretty brief, and is really only to allow a cool down before jumping right back into its final charge; however, the air like sound is rather magical as it winds down to a bit, before then (in some live versions, a nice little light guitar is played, which is both gentle and peaceful), tearing at full force back into its tune. At this point, the magical air break sounds, are included in the final hill climb briefly, and then it all comes to the final push as the song comes to it’s eventual, hair ripping end. Propane Nightmares is a really weird one; while other songs in the long profile of Pendulum do different things, there is a sense of them trying to create brand new, iconic, and unique sounds, but all the while most of them do follow a similar them and style, that of a soundtrack that would suggest exploration and discovery, showing and revealing beauties beyond belief, presenting one side to paradise. Propane Nightmares does not really follow that trend, instead, it shows a much darker and louder side, not encapsulating those things, instead creating visions of potential dystopia’s, or possibly revealing another side to the real world that we currently see. In any case, whatever it seeks to achieve, it must have worked, because I absolutely love it.

Eurovision Reaction 2014

12 05 2014

Conchita Wurst

Another year of Eurovision happened this past weekend, this time hosted in Copenhagen by last year’s winning country, Denmark. This year, they went against the norm by showing the previous year‘s winning song, not at the beginning, but halfway through, and that’s not all, they only really showed 30 seconds to a minute’s worth of what was both a catch and fabulous song and instead show a whole new song which apparently had everyone from the final singing to it. I didn’t see that bit though as I went to the toilet.

The presentation of last years winning song had also changed from a sort of cultural, possibly French army look, to something more tribal. While Ukraine did something similar in 2005 when they hosted it, at least the song was in the same style.

 

As for the contest as a whole, The presentation was a bit varied. It started off quite well, the built stage was amazingly done and the water around the stage was a nice feature too, the idea of putting the green room in the foreground was a nice touch which made the thing look like a Velodrome, and the little bits here and there such as the odd touch of comedy, particularly in the Eurovision Museum sketch which included a brief appearance from both Johnny Logan and Lordi. But as the event went on, it got a bit overdone with its selection of fun facts and how the presenters could hardly stay in one place throughout the show, and while they tried to lighten up the show by bringing in little gifts for the countries including the UK as well as a booth appearance for Graham Norton, the people involved seemed to be so confused, that they looked like they had absolutely no idea as to what was going on or what the presenters were talking about, and while they did try to come back with added fireworks, it was pretty much too late to save the presentation of the contest. Not even the song about the number 12 helped. All this from the only country to win the contest twice since 2000, which means they should know how to put on a show. At least we’ll have a reason to think twice before voting for Denmark in future contest for the near future. The flag postcard feature was quite nice though, they deserve credit for devising that.

As for the songs, it mostly a year for ballads, which was quite annoying for the most part as there was hardly any diversity at all. While countries like Finland, Ukraine, Iceland, SwitzerlandSpain and even the UK managed to do something different, there wasn’t much from the ballad department to look out for. Ok, Sweden‘s was well sung and I wouldn’t have minded if it had won it, but I didn’t vote for it, Slovenia‘s was also quite interesting. Iceland’s had a catchy theme, but the presentation was sort of annoying, the colours, the formal Teletubbies dress code and the singer who kept making me think of Kenneth Branagh, but given the ballad fest, I wouldn’t have minded so much if it had won, even though it’s sort of surprising that it wasn’t a hot country in the voting. It was nice to see San Marino in the final for the first time, even if the song was performed in front of a giant clam shell. For me though, there was only two choices for my vote, Spain’s which was quite well presented and catchy, and Ukraine’s Hamster Wheel Song. I voted for Ukraine, but it was close between those two as to which to choose.

The voting was a hot contest throughout with the fight for the top spot going on into the second half. even with about 10 countries left, it was still between 10 2 countries, Austria and Netherlands, with the Netherlands having one of their best years in the contest for a long time. But with about 3 countries left to go, Austria had already won it marking their second victory in the contest after close to 50 years since their last win. The UK did quite well reaching 17th place beating Azerbaijan who for the previous five years had always reached the top 5, this time coming in 22nd place. As for Ukraine and Spain, Ukraine came 6th, and Spain 10th, while Finland, a country with limited success since their debut, but not so much in recent years did quite well this year coming 11th overall. But it really was Austria’s year this time round with the song Rise Like A Phoenix sung by Drag Persona Conchita Wurst, which I thought wasn’t all that good as I thought it sounded a lot more like a Bond Theme with annotations from The World Is Not Enough, especially as moments in the song almost went into “The World Is Not Enough”. To be honest though, most of those points were probably awarded due to the presentation of the singer, much like Finland’s victory in 2006. Overall a sort of over average contest at best which was quite disappointing and was definitely not the best contest over the last 10 years, but did survive to some respect to remain enjoyable at best.
