The Legend Of Zelda Theme On Orchestra

Posted on

Apparently for the new Legend Of Zelda Wii game there is an included CD featuring music that I’m not sure is in the game or just an added bonus but it’s the original music done by an orchestra. I don’t have a Wii but when I saw this I was floored. Being one of those kids who played the original game when it came out and was blown away by it especially at the time. The game was groundbreaking. So hearing the theme done by an orchestra just brings back memories and is so geek worthy in its awesomeness. Here is the original theme from the game.

Happy Thanksgiving

Posted on

I hope everyone had a really great and happy Thanksgiving. I am thankful for many things including my family, my friends, my job, my dreams, and my girlfriend who is the love of my life. As the years pass I find myself not wanting to change much about the Thanksgiving meal. Certain things get tweaked but overall it remains the same and I like it. Almost all of the recipes are family recipes. They may not have modern panache but they are delicious and filling. It’s one of those times where I don’t want anything new or fancy. I want my traditional Thanksgiving. Sometimes the most basic things are what we want, and even need, the most. All my best to all of you.

RED has, after three years, released their new camera the “Scarlet“. For those unaware, RED has become the major company in digital filmmaking cameras.

The Red One brain (which is basically just the body of the camera) is around $25,000. The Epic is around $40,000 for the brain.

Grand Theft Auto III Anniversary And V Teaser Trailer

Posted on

Next to Pac-Man (sue me) it is well known among people that know me that my all time favorite games have been the Grand Theft Auto games. It’s hard to believe it was ten years ago when Rockstar Games released Grand Theft Auto III. For its anniversary Rockstar released this celebration video of one of the original commercials for it. As if that wasn’t cool enough, they released a tease trailer for the upcoming Grand Theft Auto V!!! You will kiss my free time goodbye when this gets released. I did two fun videos with game footage from GTA III and GTA Vice City a long time ago I will have to post at some point.
