One of the best things about music is that it can affect you on so many levels. Some pieces make your heart fly up and feel joyous, while other pieces remind you of the worst times in your life in a cathartic way. Other pieces of music are simply so interesting and complex in the way that they are created that you have to stop and figure them out.
If you are interested in music being Read more…

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…

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.

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…

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…
