James Piecowye thinking out loud

Ideas, inspiration and a bit of random.

Talking to Bikingman these guys are cool

It is always interesting to speak to people who have had a cool idea and then gone and taken it and turned it into something Well Axel and Andreas have done that with BIKINGMAN. http://bikingman.com/en/ http://www.guinnessworldrecords.com/world-records/451489-fastest-time-to-cycle-the-length-of-south-america-cartagena-to-ushuaia-by-a-tea I love the fact that these guys fell into cycling and it is a pretty recent thing. I love […]

Thoughts on Trump?

The President of the United States of America is if nothing else a person who ignites passion in people. Granted the passion that Mr. Trump is igniting is at the extremes and the passion that is being ignited can be as divisive as it is uniting. I think it is interesting to ponder the Trump […]

Amazing how you lose track of time

It seems I am so caught up with my work at Zayed University, Nightline and CreativeMornings that I seem to have put down my pen when it comes to posting here. The final touches have just been put on the playlist for this weeks Indie Music Jukebox, all music from the Middle East. So, here is a […]

Inspiration through conversation.

I had the opportunity to talk to Noush Like Sploosh several weeks back and her words are still echoing in my mind. I speak to many artists through what I do on DubaiEye and they are all very interesting but Noush had something more going on. What I came away from our conversation was a new level of […]

Rough Call-in Show!

Doing a call-in show at 9pm during Ramadan in always a challenge. I thought it would be interesting, I thought wrong, to ask what people thought about making Ramadan hours the regular working hours? In my experience people, even those who are fasting are more focused and getting a 8 to 12 hours of work […]

Adonis, Just A Great Band!

Maybe 3 years ago I heard this band for the 1st time, WOW was my reaction. Then I had the opportunity to meet the band as they recorded a ToneTown session for Nightline’s JukeBox show. These guys were exactly as you would expect them to be, humble, funny and simply great people. Well, Adonis has […]

Creativity is in the air!

In 2009 I had the opportunity to attend my 1st TED Conference in Long Beach California, this event was a creativity game changer for me. Sitting and listening to Elizabeth Gilbert talking about creativity I realised that part of the creativity conundrum is simply seeing the elements of creativity around us in plain sight. What […]

The Fitness Journey Begins, Week 1

For 3 years I have been doing a weekly radio show called GETFITRADIO with Marcus Smith the creator of www.innerfight.com.   If you have listened to the GetFitRadio show you will know that we talk about all aspects of fitness and personal wellbeing and everything in between.  One of the common themes running through the […]

My views of the Samsung Galaxy Note 5

Well, I have been using a Samsung Galaxy Note 2 for several years now and I am loving it.  I started using a Note when people still thought that 5 1/2 inches of screen was too much to carry. Not to self talk to IMAX people about complaints the screen allows too much to be […]

Do you know your Mother?

So, how well do you know your mother? Could you write a book about your mother? What would the soundtrack of your mother’s life be? And who would read a book about your mother? Lots of questions and Billie Elias has the answers as she talks to me about writing a book about her own […]
