Before watching the video, I want you to remember all of your favorite shooters…. You did? Okay, now I want you to imagine them all as one big, epic giant… Good? Alright, now I want you to personify Bioshock: Infinite and imagine it wiping the floor with that epic giant, that’s how good this game looks. This 15 minute-long gameplay demo is better than all shooters combined. Words don’t cut it, watch the video to understand EXACTLY what I’m talking about. It’s the Avatar of video games.
The enigma that’s been taunting millions of its followers sporadically is still no where near being riddled out. The latest release (2 months ago) “; john” hints at new beginnings, while still holding onto previous clues and formats. Each video features a song that is simultaneously released on iTunes, and their latest could be one of their greatest. My personal favorite remains “b”, but “; john” plays on different fields, making followers amp their excitement and anticipation for what’s to come.
Song: Think Of You
Artist: A Fine Frenzy
Album: One Cell In The Sea
In short: A sad tale of love gone wrong. Alison Sudol’s (her real name) heart-breaking lyrics (“Just to put your mind at ease, you don’t own me anything/you paid me well in memories”) will definitely get to you. This song works better in winter.

I can’t help but love perfume ads. Maybe it’s because of the music, the hot model, or the indirect messages in said ads. Ricci Ricci is the latest in the long-running line of Nina Ricci perfumes. There was a time when I overdosed on their ciggie-tinted Memoir D’Homme cologne, too bad it’s no where to be found today.
Artist: Katharine McPhee
Song: Had It All
Release date: August 25
Label: Verve Records
Back in the game again, American Idol runner-up Katharine McPhee is set to release her sophomore album Unbroken this October. Things are all different this time around, first of all Katharine is blonde, and more importantly the sound she opted for is completely different to everything found on her debut LP. One main reason is that the genius John Alagia (John Mayer, Jason Mraz) helped produce and perfect the forthcoming album. Katharine was released of her contract with RCA after dissatisfying album sales, which gave her more freedom to evolve as an artist and record the material she wanted to record. It is crystal clear that she left the R&B-fused and over-produced pop days well behind her. The lead single has a raw, earthy feel to it while McPhee keeps marinating her vocal prowess still. The bridge features a billowing high note that brings back her days of “Idol” to mind. If the upcoming album features more of “Had It All”, I’m sold.
