Music: For Both the Ear and the Heart

June 25th, 2013

Every day we continue to try and fill the few hours of free time we have. Between the internet, television, click here, and the radio, voyeurs are being continually inundated with easy and entertaining content. The format of these types of divertissement make them easy to soak up without taking up to much energy, or even, time. One of the great things about modern entertainment is that not only is it easy to keep going, but it is easy to multitask while watching the television or listening to the radio. As many jobs are becoming centered around computers and technology, doing two different things at once has become an integral part of the daily work ethic. Unfortunately many people do not take the time out of their days to really enjoy the little moments, even on the weekends the time needs to be filled with running errands and doing chores around the house. Whatever the circumstances, sitting around and reading a good book has become less and less of a beloved pastime. As mankind evolves and becomes more obsessed with the work place, filling the moments in-between becomes less fulfilling, as the allotted time for personal moments is continually cut and hedged down to a minimum. Filling those few moments has become a race to finish all the little things we need to do for ourselves in as scant a time as possible, otherwise we might begin to think about our lives and what they are becoming.

Video Games: Live an Otherworldly Adventure

April 22nd, 2013

Those who enjoy playing video games know what the thrill is. Not only do you get the opportunity to compete with others and show off your skills, but you also get to explore a multitude of things and enjoy an adventure that you would probably never be able to experience in real life.

For instance, there are fantasy games out there that include characters, settings and experiences that are impossible to find in the real world. This can be a great way to escape from reality for a little while and Read more…

Code Geass is Japan’s Answer to Lost

January 23rd, 2013

Taking place in a not-so distant future where the world is almost entirely ruled by the Britanian Empire, Japan has become the latest conquest. Stripped of its name and simply called “Area 11″ the people are subjugated and made to serve their masters.

That is, until a brilliant child prodigy by the name of Lelouch becomes inadvertently embroiled in a battle between Britanian soldiers and Japanese terrorists. After a short firefight, Lelouch encounters a strange girl, the object the two sides were fighting over, and receives the power of the King – the ability to mind control anyone he looks at.

To go into it further would be spoiling the overall experience that Code Geass has to offer.

You have Lelouch, but he is just one complex character of over a hundred that take center stage in this sprawling epic. Every character is brought to life, possessing their own agendas that sometimes clash with our protagonist’s and sometimes compliment.

You never really know who is betraying who until the final move is made and someone is either defeated or outright killed. It’s an anime that requires tremendous patience and focus, but if you could handle Lost, you can most certainly handle this and it’s worth a watch.

Hit up the video store or see if you can find it on iTunes. If all else fails, check your Direct tv channel guide or your local listings and see if it’s playing. If you like anime, this is definitely something you don’t want to miss.

Plays: From Ancient Greece to Modern Broadway

July 8th, 2012

The history of plays goes back many years. In fact, it goes back all the way to the earliest days of the Greeks, who, in their love of art, architecture, drama and music, formed a conglomeration of the four. This became what we know as modern drama much later on.
The evolution of plays, however, is much more in depth. When the Greeks were performing, they often did it in very minimalist settings. Often times, Read more…

Books: From the Page to Your Imagination

July 5th, 2012

Today we live in a high speed internet visual universe. Information is available in multiple formats,in vibrant colors and sounds, and from every culture on earth. We see the visions of others, their worlds of good and evil. Little if anything is left to the imagination any more. Many pundits have threatened the end of the printed book for years. Electronic and digital media will overwhelm and eradicate the paper bound book, or so they write. As Mark Twain wrote so very ably, “the rumors are widely exaggerated” as far as the Read more…
