But between us, who are we trying to kid? If my bias is standing a few feet away from me, you sure as hell bet I’m going to be taking an embarrassing number of pictures per minute and recording more videos than should ever be allowed. And you know what? In my defense, our memories can only be fresh for so long. In a matter of time, we start to leave out details. We forget the feeling of having our hearts climb into our throats, and the memory becomes more of a hazy nostalgia than anything else. So yes, recording videos for memory’s sake does matter. And frankly, the quality and functionality of your phone are just as relevant. Speaking of the technical functions of your phone camera, let’s take a look at the new LG G2. This phone features what has to be one of the most innovative video recording functions on the market right now. With LG G2’s Optical Image Stabilizer, you can capture the artist performing on stage more clearly, even when your hands are shaking. Not only that, but Audio Zoom helps zone out the background noise to more clearly record the sound coming from your favorite artist! Going off a whim, when you record videos, you probably want to hear your idol’s voice, not the seizure screams of the preadolescent girls standing next to you, who, by the way, can scream in ways you never would have imagined possible coming from a human body. Remember that fifteen-year-old girl with the steel set of lungs I was talking about before?
British expat beaten with brick, robbed after concert at New York club
58th St. between 10th and 11th Aves. at 10:45 p.m. when a violent goon emerged from the shadows, a police source said. The mugger, believed to be a homeless man, came up behind Billington and bashed him in the back of the head with what his girlfriend told police appeared to be a brick wrapped in a cloth, the source said. Billington fell to the ground and the assailant hit him again in the face with the brick before searching his pockets for money, the source said. The robber, dressed in a hoodie or jacket and wearing a baseball cap, fled empty-handed, leaving Billington bloodied and his girlfriend, whose name was not released, screaming for help. Cops are still trying to identify the attacker, hoping security cameras in the area filmed the robbery, a throwback to the bad days of New York City. RELATED: THUG WHO MUGGED WOMAN WITH EIGHT KIDS IN BROOKLYN BUSTED Marcus Santos// New York Daily New New York music club Terminal 5, where Andrew Billington and his girlfriend attended a concert before he was attacked with a brick. A 1997 graduate of Newcastle University in England, Billington moved to New York City in 2009, according to a post on Big Apple Brits, a social networking group for British expats. A spokesman for Thomson Reuters would only confirm that Billington worked at the global media company. On his LinkedIn page, Billington describes himself as an accountant at Thomson Reuters in charge of strategic customers and finance solutions. But Billingtons passion appears to be long-distance running. In May, he competed in the New York Road Runners Marathon Tune-Up, finishing the 18-mile race in 2 hours, 11 minutes and 19 seconds.
