Shadow of Colossus is being made into a movie. You should be more enthusiastic. Why? Well… it’s considered one of the greatest games ever made. If you’re not into video games well… it’s considered one of the greatest games ever made because of the story. I know usually film adaptations of anything suck pretty hard, like REALLY hard like NSFW hard, but this is going to be the exception…hopefully. The story is quiet, desolate and heartwarming. It follows a man named Wander as he enters a shrine in the Forbidden Lands…from a name like that let us assume he’s not supposed to be there at all. He rides in there on a horse with a large item wrapped in a cloak. When he arrives at the “Forbidden Temple” at the “Forbidden Lands” he puts the cloak (assuming it’s the “Forbidden Cloak”) on the altar and upon opening it is reveled to be a woman named Mono assumed to be his lover. After waving his fancy schmancy sword around at some shady guys, he hears the voice of Dormin who is, well kinda like the devil.

Country music fans have had their hands full lately. This past weekend Nashville, Tennessee hosted the CMA Fest and Country Music Awards. But now they’re getting attention for an entirely different reason - Carrie Underwood has been quoted as saying that she supports gay marriage.
With the UK festival season already kicking off, it’s the smaller festivals that are stealing the lime light this summer. With Friends of Mine Festival, Slam Dunk and Dot to Dot festival already bringing some of the greatest artist the musical world has to offer, there are still plenty of smaller festivals with massive line ups left to indulge in. I’ve picked my top 4 to check out, so move over Reading and Leeds, good things really do come in small packages!

This festival has been playing host to home grown talent for 11 years in the heart of Leicestershire. Bringing in 7,000 music and comedy lovers, it may seem small scale compared to the likes of V-Festival and Glasto, but for just £115 for the full weekend it’s defiantly not one to miss.

There are few musicians that last for quite some time in the industry, but R&B artist Usher is proving to be one of those few. The hardest part for artists to last a while in the industry is how quickly music changes over time and whether or not they can adapt to the new style while still being themselves and maintaining their fans. Usher has been doing this since his 15th birthday when his very first single, “Call Me a Mack,” from the movie soundtrack for Poetic Justice hit the R&B charts in 1993. Gaining fans, showing off his dance moves, and gradually moving along with the music has been his speciality.
On June 12, his seventh studio album, Looking For Myself, will hit stores.
When the former pop- rock band Sing It Loud moved their separate ways in fall of 2010,Pat Brown (lead singer) didn’t let that stop him from chasing his dreams.

He recently started DJing and Tour Managing with his friend Mod Sun, working as a drum tech for bands, and is a producer / engineer at Blooming Sounds Studios.
