As most of you are well aware (or just those who follow video game culture), Capcom officially revealed last Thursday that Resident Evil 6 will be released on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 for this year. Along with the press release and promotion material, they unveiled the official first trailer of the game.
Immediately after the trailer was released online, a wave of rumours and speculations filled message boards about the details that yet unconfirmed. At this point, only Chris Redfield, Leon S. Kennedy, and Ada Wong have been confirmed as returning characters, but rumours are circulating that either Sherry Birkin, Ashley Graham or even Rebecca Chambers will be returning to the game in the (yet) unidentified role of the mysterious blonde accomplice. Plus, the online co-op function will support a six-player functionality. I've linked the video below so that you can check out the trailer for yourself!
WARNING: As with any survival/action-horror game, there will be violent and gory materials that may not be suitable for everyone.
It's a new year and that means a new entry for Tuesday Tunes. With this latest post, it marks the 10th week that I've added to this feature - can you believe how long it's been since the first post!
For those of you who are unfamiliar with this post, I search online for three videos that showcase music. It can be a parody, music video, performance or a cover song - it depends on what interests me.
As this is the 10th week, I'll going to put Tuesday Tunes on hold for some time. Don't worry, I'll continue to add new articles and posts from other topics to this blog. It'll give me some time to find new interesting videos for you all.
The three videos that I'm showcasing this week are:
1. "Video Games" by Lana Del Ray
2. "Let's Go To The Mall" by Robin Sparkles
3. "All Fired Up" by The Saturdays
Winter is the perfect time for thick sweaters and jaw-dropping stylish coats - nevertheless, I am no fan of the weather! Besides trying out new fall and winter ensembles for the next couple of months, winter is the perfect time to locate the cutest awe-inspiring accessories to show off in the spring. If you're in Toronto, many small boutique stores and antique shops downtown might hold that special unique item you're looking for?
I'll be the first to the admit that I am no expert when it comes to women's fashion accessories. My time in retail was heavily focused on attire - I did perfect styling with colour choices. From the designers that I've read about and checked up on, one such person peaked my interest.
Jenny Bird is Canadian-born fashion designer whose accessories collection has prominently been featured on such fashion-forward television shows like Gossip Girl, The City and Melrose Place. Her range of collections (always women only) sports many trendy pieces that include handbags, necklaces, rings and bracelets to name a few. Currently, this Toronto and New York-based fashion designer has spread her accessories to boutiques and the hottest retailers in locations worldwide.
What made me want to write about Jenny this week is that I never realized her collection appeared in shows that I liked. Gossip Girl and Melrose Place are two shows that I absolutely love and still watch (in Melrose's case, when it was still airing). Accessories is always an afterthought when I think of Fashion but this week, it felt right to focus on this topic. Also, her collection is amazing if you thrive on accessories and handbags. Her site says that they're currently working on a new website but if you want to learn more about her, check her out at www.jenny-bird.com.
