In a nutshell 2013 was incredible, and the year I pretty much sorted my life out. Most notably I turned 40, and got engaged!

I was at times overwhelmed and consumed exactly eighteen tonnes of new sounds and bought too much vinyl probably. Anyhow, let’s get moving.

Early worries about being a “show off” or the irrelevance of my experiences to others have worn off, and I see this as a cathartic task that teaches me as much about the coming year as it does reflect on the one just passed. So, here’s my look back at an incredibly busy 2012. Having summarised my year as both 2010 and 2011 drew to a close, I’m learning to enjoy writing these reviews now.

In 2012 I tried to shoot video wherever I went. However, I don’t like carrying around loads of expensive kit, so I constrained myself to only using my iPhone 4S, some carefully chosen apps, and a couple of peripherals. The results were… interesting. I am an enthusiastic amateur when it comes to photography and video, but I like a challenge. In 2012 I tried to shoot video wherever I went.
