Zac Brown Band

The Zac Brown Band is a country band made up of 6 guys. The main singer and guitarist is Zac Brown, while Jimmy De Martini plays the violin and is also a vocalist. John Driskell Hopkins plays the bass and is also a vocalist, with Coy Bowles playing the Guitar and Organ.  Clay Cook plays guitar, organ, mandolin, pedal steal, and also provides vocals. Chris Fryars plays the drums. They have sung with multiple famous singers like Jimmy Buffett and others. They appeared literally out of no ware and they became a hit super fast. But they could only do something like this with amazing songs like “Toes”, “Chicken Fried”, “As Shes Walking Away”, and many more. Their album “You Get What You Give” is already out in stores. I hope that you like this band as much as I do.

Regular Show vs. Adventure Time

This week, I will be reviewing two TV shows that people at Page Private school like a lot. They even like them enough to have a rivalry with them. First one is Adventure Time. This show is about a human named Finn and his best friend who is a magical talking dog with awesome powers named Jake. The two go on adventures together to help their friends. One of their friends names is Princess Bubblegum. She rules the candy kingdom and all the people in it and is also a really good scientist but, in some episodes she makes candy zombies who crave sugar. They also have  another friend named Marceline. Oh, and she is a vampire she likes to play pranks on Finn and Jake but they still are friends. Next is Lumpy Space Princess or “LSP” for short. She tends to get really mad at her parents and runaway from home, but Finn and Jake usually find her and bring her home. Then they have an enemy who is always trying to take princesses and his name is The Ice King. He always makes trouble for Finn and Jake but sometimes he tries to make friends with them. Finn and Jake love to adventure and help people when they are in unique situations but they tend to get themselves in trouble and need help.

Next is Regular show. This show is about two best friends one is a bird named Mordecai and the other a raccoon named Rigby. They work at the park in their city for their boss named Benson and he is a gum ball machine and gets really mad when ever Mordecai and Rigby slack off, so he is mad a lot. They also have co-workers like Muscle Man and High Five Ghost. Those two are best friends and play pranks on Mordecai and Rigby and always start competition like in one episode they wanted to see who can make the best internet video. Also Muscle Man always tells horrible “my mom” jokes that annoy Mordecai and Rigby. Another person is Skips. He is called that because he always skips. But whenever Mordecai and Rigby get in to trouble they come to him for help. But Skips does have a past with death and other supernatural things. Next is a British  lollipop named Pops. He helps Mordecai and Rigby and he is really nice and has a very  low temper but knows how to wrestle very well, as shown in one of the episodes. Mordecai and Rigby love to blow off work and watch TV, play video games, and entertain themselves in any way possible but, they sometimes get into bad situations.

Both of these shows are great and hilarious but which one is better, Regular Show (Mordecai and Rigby)  or Adventure Time (Finn and Jake)? Its up to you to decide.

Lupe Fiasco Lasers

This week I am reviewing “Lasers” the new album by Lupe Fiasco. This album is the newest album by Lupe Fiasco. My favorite song on this album is “Hip hop saved my life”. This song is about a man who is trying to become a rapper but he can’t due to writers block, then one day one of his song he thought was bad was on the radio then he kept writing to help his mom. Others that I like on this album are “The Show Goes On”, “I’m beaming”, and “Words I never said”. I like him as a rapper and a person. I like his rap cause his rap is inspiring to me and when he raps I feel it is more of a story than a song and his story’s are about his life and his struggles as a kid. This album released in March, 2011. Songs on this album include “Letting go” ft. Shara Green, and “Words I Never said” ft. Skylar Grey, “All Black everything”, and many more. To find out more about him and his music visit his official website www.lupefiasco.com

Kinect for Xbox 360

Kinect Demo Video  This week I am doing a review of the newest thing from Xbox “The Kinect”. The creator of the Kinect is Microsoft they also made the Xbox 360. The Kinect is fun, while giving you a good work out at the same time. The Kinect puts you as the controller to play games you can put your hand on the picture of the game and it will start.The Kincet makes you move your hands and feet to the game based on what the game tells you to do. Now my favorite feature of the Kinect you can use your voice to control your Xbox as well as your Kinect. That’s right you can say it and your Xbox will find it. Some games for the Kinect do not require the sensor but give you better gaming experince with it, as some games as you will see on the cover (like the type of games just mentioned) you will see it say “require Kinect sensor”. But you still can play regular games on the Xbox, as well as more than one person players. On some games you have to do a movement to do some thing like fly, you must put both of your hands out straight to the sides. I personally like the Kinec,t but I do it to often and then I get sore, watch how often you do it and how much you do while playing. So, I like it and it is very fun for the whole family.

Fukushima Reactors Stabilize

On March 11, a earthquake crippled important cooling systems in the Fukusima power plant. The reactors are now in a cold shutdown which means the site is now stable. You know the Fukshima power plant was damaged with the earthquake and tsunami but you know that the plant will take decades to dismantle because of the high levels of radiation. The main problem is that this radiation is now in the surrounding area and is in the sea water because some of the contaminated liquid fell out of the reactor storage and fell into the sea. Currently the government is trying to disable, dismantle, and decommission the damaged reactors. After that the government says that the area would have to be decontaminated. 80,000 people had to evacuate the area because of radiation and people will not be able to move back for almost 40 years. Reports from around the region have found traces of radiation in the soil, beef, rice, and fish. The plant is still in danger if another quake hits then the situation could get worse.

Battlefield 3 realease on 10/25/11

On October 25 2011 the most amazing game of the year (in my opinion) is coming out and it is named  Battlefield 3. This game has blown away critics from the very first trailer even though some were not impressed by the Battlefield 3 beta which ended on October 15th. I personally think this game is going to be so amazing -I pre-ordered it- this game has all of the recent software in it like Frostbite 2.0 which in the Battlefield 2 game they introduced collapsing building’s but now they have introduced where everything is destructible in some way like if some body shoots a wall the wall will start to break and crumble. Also another thing they introduces is full-out customization with your weapon; like flashlight’s and red lasers on your weapon, and I am not sure but they also may be putting character customization into the game. In This game they have all the vehicles you could imagine; they have tanks, cars, Apc’s, helicopters and the new vehicle that they added jets. This game is going to be amazing and I will play this game series forever because in my opinion it is the best.

PayBack

This week I am doing another book review and this one is the sequel to “The Bully”. This book is also a part of the “Bluford High” series and is called “Pay Back”. The book is about a boy named Tyray he used to be the school bully but all of that changed when a new kid named Darrell had enough of his bullying and stood up to him and broke Tyray’s wrist. Now, Tyray was mad and he wanted to pay back the person who beat him up, but he was only at school. Tyray did not want to go to school, ever but no matter what he had to go to school. At school he was laughed at and humiliated by everyone, but one girl named Lark. She sat by Tyray and he told her about his revenge. Just then Darrell walked by with his friend, he looked at Tyray, but he just kept walking. Tyray was at home and his father was furious and Tyray’s dad was yelling and told Tyray that fighting is how his brother got thrown in jail. His mom told him to go outside while his father calmed down. Outside Tyray saw his brothers friend and he told him about what happened at school. Then Tyray’s friend pulled out a gun Tyray said he wanted it but his friend told him no to wait. To find out what happens next you have to go read the book your self it is worth it to find out what happens next.
