Annelise Forbes is the latest youtube singing kid sensation! No training and she sings a great rendition of “Let It Go” from the movie “Frozen”! Check it out here:
Could you just imagine going to a gym and Mr. Olympian shows up? Arnold Schwarzenegger showed up incognito to “work out” at a gym in L.A.. He did it to promote fitness especially in kids. Do you think the water girl is a set up? It’s pretty funny and to me, Arnold’s disguise looks a bit like Tom Selleck mixed with Billy Ray Cyrus! Check it out:
Ever wanted to make a Love meal? What if you could have a recipe for a meal for every stage of your romance? Would it sound something like:
“Let’s Get Pregnant Waffles”? or perhaps “Stop Likeing your Ex’s Posts on Facebook Ham”? “Respect Me As a Person Pork Chops”, “Finally Moving in Together Kebabs” , “We Need to See Eye to Eye on Our Finances Ramen” Here are some recipes for REAL love affairs!
2014 is shaping up to be an intriguing year for gamers. Here are some titles to watch out for according to Abc tech net group:
Titanfall (Xbox One, X360, PC)
It’s fun in varying doses. But in a few months, Call of Duty will finally have a proper competitor: Titanfall.
There’s something fitting that the first real competition for what Call of Duty truly is these days – speed – Titanfall will be the first game with enough momentum and critical interest that targets the same style of gameplay, the same speed and the same fans that love Call of Duty.
Star Citizen (PC)
Crowd funding, in gaming and elsewhere, isn’t new. Amanda Palmer famously raised over a million dollars for her own purposes and gave a TED talk called “The Art of Asking“. The figures are pocket change though compared to some of the money spent on games. Modern Warfare 2’s budget was estimated at around US$200 million, Disney Infinity reportedly cost over US$100 million.
Project CARS (PS4, Xbox One, PC, Linux, SteamOS, Wii U)
Project CARS is another crowd-funded title that took a very different path to development. After raising the funds that Slightly Mad Studios, makers of Need for Speed: SHIFT, needed, the developers closed the doors and stopped accepting pledges.pCARS has the scope, the cars, the tracks, the support and the looks. If it comes off it’ll be hard to see anyone beating this for a long, long while.
Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft (PC, Mac, iPad, Android)
The rise of collectible card games and the mechanics that underpin them was hard to miss in 2013. If it wasn’t a host of digital CCGs on their own, it was the introduction of CCG-like elements into various genres.
Hearthstone, the free-to-play CCG from Blizzard, was by far the biggest introduction to the market. It also served as a point of entry into card games for many who would have traditionally ignored the genre altogether – fans of ultra-competitive Starcraft, for instance.
