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

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , , , on May 29, 2011 by getbent57

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.

Dungeon Raid

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.

DiRT 3 Hands On

Posted in Just something to say with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 24, 2011 by getbent57

Got my copy of DiRT 3 today (May 24, 2011).  Went over to Wal-mart on my lunch break just to see if they had it out yet.  They did, was surprised at that.  I remember trying to get a copy of DiRT 2 when that came out.  Went all over town to find a copy.  Waiting for the game to install before I give it a go.  The game comes with a VIP Pass.  To play online you have to go to a website put in the code. That will give you a PSN code to enter on the PS3.  Which is stupid.  I know they are trying to make money of people buy used copies.  It is $10 if you didn’t a VIP pass.  It does give you five exclusive vehicles and yet you upload clips to YouTube.  With the Playstation store still down there will be not much online play going on.

Gave the first race in tour mode just before supper.  Left all the setting on default.  I think I will have to change them up because it was too easy.  All I had to do was hold the gas on and steer.  The game did all the breaking.  It does let you change all the assists so I will have to try the different ones out.  The game is beautiful looking and the menu screens are just as cool as the past two games.  Time to play some more.

DiRT 3 Tomorrow

Dirt3Cover Tomorrow is May 24, 2011 so that means DiRT 3 is out.  Have been looking forward to this game for a long time now.  Can’t wait to pick it up.  There are some review up all ready. They are saying good things.  I know it is going to be good because the first two are two of my all time favourite games.  Those games look awesome and this one looks even better.




The Rite Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , on May 22, 2011 by getbent57

TheRite Wanted to check out The Rite because I thought it might be some want interesting or have some “scary” parts.  Well neither is true.  This was a very boring movie.  Don’t want to give any thing way but stop reading this part if you still want to watch this movie.  When the finely get in the the exorcism stuff they don’t do any thing new.  It all has been done before.  Have seen just as good scenes in TV show.  Don’t want to say it waste of time to watch because that seems a bit harsh.  But is is true.

Don’t bother wasting your time watching this movie.  Not very interesting and boring.
