MikeTompkins You need to check out the videos at Mike Tompkins is making.  He does covers of popular songs but with at twist.  He makes all the instruments sounds with his mouth.  Records them separately then puts all the sounds together.  It is very cool how he pulls it off.  He latest cover is Rolling in the Deep by Adele.

Gnomeo & Juliet Review

GnomeoJuliet Most of the time I like these animated type movies but Gnomeo & Juliet wasn’t very good.  It does have a good look to it.  Nice an bright, with some very cool set pieces.  It is it just all falls flat.  From the opening shot were they say this story has been told before and we are going to tell it again.  I am fine with retelling a story but at least change it up a bit.  It is by the number animated movie.  They just watched what the competition were doing and pretty much copied it.  Some times this works but it didn’t here.

Over all it has a great look but that can’t save it.  It just falls flat.  I say pass.  Not even sure kids will like it.

Yesterday made had a post reminding people about the Whales video contest.  The rules > here.   I was saying that my entry was all most done.  Well it is done now.  Finished it off when I got home from work today.  Didn’t take long as I thought to finish.  Added some After Effects to a few clips.  Thought that was going to take me awhile to do.  The tutorial I used was really helpful.  Upload the video to YouTube and Vimeo.  So that is why there are two copies below.

DungeonRaid Gave the app/game Dungeon Raid Lite a try on my iPod Touch.  The lite stands for the free to try version of the game.  It is one of those puzzles/rpg games with a mix a bejeweled.  The mechanics are very simple but very fun.  This is one game I am thinking  out buying.  Not really into the buying download only stuff but this is one thing that might change my mind.  If you have a iPhone or a Touch you should check it out.
