Just in case you might have forgotten last year’s surprise (as in Capcom still knows what a great game plays like) Dragon’s Dogma, Rabidgames is hooked again in his New Game+. And while waiting for the game to start, listening to the theme song made Rabidgames suddenly realise the song actually describes the story spot on. Here you can listen to it:
Now, let’s have a look at the chorus:
“The wave is pushing me, into the current again
I feel the blood in my veins
Diving into free, can feel it letting go
Not gonna hit the ground
The sky is painted free, why can’t we understand
We kill ourselves in the end
It’s simple as one, two, three, it’s written in the sand
We are the Dangan”
If you have finished Dragon’s Dogma once, you’ll understand the meaning of “pushing into the current again”. And while that…

Long lost fairy sisters, brought up in different seasons, one day discover each other at the border of Pixie Hollow and the Winter Woods. There’s something special which happens when these two fairies get together. When they connect, their wings sparkle.
For those of you who don’t know, Tinkerbell, that tricksy tinkering fairy who is friends with Peter Pan, has launched her solo career, and is doing quite well from it. I had a special auntie/ sister trip the other day to see this sparkling story at the cinema. And yes- films for four year olds are sometimes the most profound (my little niece was discretely wiping the tears as they made their way down her sweet little cheeks).
So let me sprinkle a bit of their fairy-dust philosophy before your eyes;
We often learn stuff from those who don’t share our circumstances. Those from a different context. Tinkerbell and…

New year. New stuff.
Today, WordPress (the platform I use to communicate with all of you) announced that in honor of the New Year they’ll be promoting their “responsive themes” on WordPress.com.
Now, let’s be clear. I’m still figuring out what’s going on in the blogosphere. And to be honest, when images aren’t uploaded correctly, my grammar stinks or I have a typo, there’s a reason: almost every post I share with you is created using my iPhone.
I’m low-tech and lazy. I’m glad you still love me!
After reading WordPress’ article about their responsive themes, I decided to make some changes.
I know a lot of you really liked the Chunk theme that I’ve been using, but I wanted to try out one of the responsive themes so that the layout is customized depending on which device you’re using to read this blog.
When I learned you read me…

Season One, Episode One
So everyone has been telling me about this Showtime series that I “really have to check out because it’s awesome.” (No, not all of my friends are stoners) So with a bunch of shows on some kind of hiatus and my constant cough and cold keeping me in bed most nights these days, I decided to check out Shameless. To recap: I know Shameless is about to start its third season, but I’m going to talk about it now because it’s the first time I’m watching it.
The Pilot episode was very good, presenting us with the Gallaghers, a large and dysfunctional family raised by the oldest sister, Fiona. Their dad, Frank, is an alcoholic who drinks all day and passes out somewhere on the floor every night. Lip and Ian are the second and third oldest, share a room and have a…

Recently, I’ve been getting into watching Portlandia which is a satirical comedy based out of Portland, Oregon. On the surface, the show is crude and can get a little dull at times. If you pay attention to the skits and satire associated with them, you can appreciate the genius of Portlandia, created by Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein. Their skits make fun of of American obsession. Americans have a tendency to be obsessed over certain things for a short period of time. If you don’t believe me think about iPhones, Gangnam style, and cats. So far I’ve only watched season one and I loved it. The skits about books, the technology loop, and bikers really say a lot about American culture in a nutshell. I personally haven’t watched the spoiler above, but I will when I’m ready.
If you get the chance, check out Portlandia on your Netflix instant que.
After a wonderful preview episode last month, the quirky comedy starring Carrie Brownstein and Fred Armisen is back for a third season with funny back-to-back new episodes. There’s a guy who proclaims that he’s “never owned a TV” discovering the current state of MTV; great musical numbers (“Change the world, one party at a time”); commercials for “natural” deodorant; and Portland “missionaries” sent to Seattle on a quest.
Even as the U.S. Senate continues to inquire about what it says are misrepresentations of the use of torture in the successful hunt for Al Qaeda mastermind Osama Bin Laden in 2011, filmmakers Kathryn Bigelow and Mark Boal defended their Oscar hopeful Zero Dark Thirty at the New York Film Critics Circle Monday night.
