Normally when it comes to apps I usually download the game then give an honest review, or at least try to. But this case is different, I was so moved by the story behind this app that I decided to promote its cause instead of providing a review. The game is called Allied Star Police, and it was made by Owain Weinert, a very bright 10 year old who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia. When ...

These photographs arent photographs! They are actual paintings done by the talented Jeremy Geddes. When I first saw these works of art I was blown away, they look so real its almost like you could walk into these environments and float along with the astronaut. The artist has other works that don’t involve astronauts, but these were my favorite so I wanted to share them with you. Most of the prints are sold out but you can ...

Here’s an interesting concept, the “Techo-illusionist”, where one merges magic and technology to create an illusion in the viewers mind. Marco Tempest does exactly that. He performs old fashioned magic tricks but with a twist, using modern day gadgets and technology, in this case 3 ipods. I dont really consider this magic but it is a beautiful illusion, and very interesting. What I liked about this is that he doesn’t just show you a few tricks, ...

There’s something about this song that just speaks to the deepest part of a person’s soul. It’s like a sad lullaby, I haven’t heard it in a long time but I still remember all the lyrics because of how beautiful the words are. The song is called My Immortal by Evanesence, and the lead singer is Amy Lee who has such an angelic voice. “You used to captivate me By your resonating light Now I’m bound by ...

So I was hunting through the app store like the app nut that I am, when I saw the newly released Sephora app. You might find it strange that I would be interested in a make up app since I play video games, but on the contrary, Im actually a girly girl who likes make up and high heels too. So back to the app, at first glance it seemed like a great app, not ...

“I’m walking away, from the troubles in my life. I’m walking away, gonna find a better day” “What’s your flava? Tell me whats your flava … oooh” I could keep on writing more verses to these songs but by now you should know that these songs are all done by the amazingly talented Craig David. When I got my hands on the “Slicker Than Your Average” CD in 2002, I couldn’t stop listening to it. ...

One of my favorite games of all time is Mass effect 1 and 2. The game series is just mind-blowing, very engaging and dramatic. It set the bar for other Role Playing games out there, it was just different and really provided a movie experience with choice. The dramatic game took place in space, something I’ve always been fascinated by and Mass Effect is a adventure on its own. For the third game in the series, ...

I does feel like these superheroes we came to love as children existed long before we were born. In some cases some were created long ago, but this is where Agan Harahap (from Indonesia) brought it to reality where he decided to come up with something genius. He basically inserts superheroes in past world events like World War II as old photographs. The images were blended perfectly with superheroes such as Batman, Spiderman and yes Darth ...

I do understand the creative use of space, usually a square room and things are deployable from the wall, but what I don’t get is how cleverly unique this little house is. This house is called “Keret House” and it was designed by Jakub Szczęsny from Centrala where he challenged himself in making a house in-between 2 buildings. The house will be built in Poland this September as a studio for the writer Etgar Keret which ...

This art is striking to me as it is what I call naive and professional all in one. Naivety not in a bad sense, more of free hand drawing that only kids can draw, I personally believe kids are artists but that goes to the fact that they don’t know what they’re doing. Raphael Vicenzi also known as My Dead Pony, combines scribbles with outstanding shapes and forms creating a very unique artistic style. His work looks ...

So its official, gameplay during working hours is a necessity and I have the infographic to prove it! The infographic was made by Socialcast, and its basically a comparison between the workforce and gameplay and how they can be integrated to create more efficient employees. I loved the approach that they took with this especially since I’m an avid gamer so I’d love to have this concept implemented at work. A lot of the information on ...

For the people at work, this is for you. Who said we can’t have coconut summer breeze style fun just coz we aren’t on vacation? The song is called Coconut Tree, and the location that they chose for the video looks amazing. I would love to have one day with my camera in a place like that. I just have to say this, Nicole I love your music and all, but why for the love of all ...

I can’t wait for Battlefield 3 to be released. This video is the newly leaked gameplay footage of the game’s “Metro” map, and the graphics are insanely good! Now I’ve always been a fan the Call Of Duty franchise, and the Battlefield games never really got my attention it just wasnt nearly as addictive as its rival. But I have to say that from what I saw at E3 and these newly released multiplayer videos, ...

So me and Green have featured this crazy film maker called FreddieW  before, he basically posts an amazing crazy video each week and he stars as the role of pretty much anything. I do not know how such creativity remains fresh but this time around he’s bringing something different, a video inspired by the movie Cowboys and Aliens. He was commissioned by Jon Favreau, the director of the upcoming movie Cowboys and Aliens and I believe FreddieW ...

That’s a strange name for a car, but this car is something else, a class of its own, makes “Speed Racer” very jealous. This work of art was created back in 1964 and only 3 cars were actually made, I do not understand why more were not made, this car just looks amazing. Everything from the shape and colors just look very different and classical, like I said, a class of it’s own. If you happen ...

So it happens that I just watched Zookeeper while not knowing anything about it and I haven’t even seen the trailer before watching the movie. The movie is quite what I expected, starring Kevin James in the lead role with a bunch of talking animals. So, he’s a zoo keeper, likes a girl and the animals teach him how to get her? I think you know where this is going ….. the zoo. The movie’s plot ...
