Anyone who grew up in the decade of the 90s has tipped their hats to “No Doubt” for the revival of ska music. The band eventually mixed in more dancehall and reggae into their style, helping them gain more success. Amidst all the commercial success and award trophies, I can’t help but notice more of their composition style in which I can describe as “feel good”. Well, that’s all thanks to the Jamaican feel of their tracks.
It’s good to be a 90′s kid.
This May 20th at Mall of Asia’s SMX Convention Center Function Room 1 will be the first event organized by a group of Vocaloid fans and utamitte (cover songs by fans) hobbyists called VOCA★FUSION. The event will have many sorts of activities catering to the fandom related to Vocaloid, one of which is a maid and butler cafe section, the Vocaloid Manor.
The Vocaloid Manor is the brainchild of two eager cosplayers who were driven enough to start something very familiar to regular anime convention visitors but in a more Vocaloid-centric premise. And thus, Secret Garden Kissaten will be hosted on VOCA★FUSION.
The cafe will boast a roster of staff rich in a Vocaloid line of presentation through cosplay. And as such, the staff is purely composed of cosplayers.
Above are our enchanting maids and the Lady in Waiting who will be attending to diners:
Maid Rin – Sese
Maid Miku – Jaroukasama
Maid Meiko – Jessica
Maid SeeU – SnowFall Slasher
Maid Luka – Jeyel Tecson
“Lady in Waiting” Kasane – Katz del Rosario
Next up are the dazzling butlers and Maitre’ D who will be doing their best to please diners.
Butler Len – Ku Ri Ku Ri
Maitre’d Kiyoteru – Quakey Artista (me)
Butler Kaito – Devian Grey
Butler Gakupo – Kyo-suke Fukuzumi
Also in the cafe is the special guest “maid” alongside the staff, Maid Macho.
Here is a better look at who you will be expecting in the cafe.
Hope to be serving you soon.
Haven’t been much into anything lately (not even anime or manga). Got my hands full of playing Assassin’s Creed 2 and Brotherhood (I know, I’m a late bloomer). While being absorbed by something, I become rather monotonous. And this entry shows much of it. XP
A week before the release of Assassin’s Creed Revelations, Ubisoft announced that the fans will be expecting another major release of the title, yet only little info has been revealed. Yet earlier this year, a promotional art of the game was leaked out provided by Ubisoft.
From the cover, it seems that the fight between Templars and Assassins will move on to the American Revolution era with the Renaissance and the Crusades era coming before it, where Ezio Auditore da Firenze and Altair Ibn-La’Ahad (respectively) where the pointmen to Desmond Miles‘s synchronization of their memories from the first four titles of the franchise. This time however, a new ancestor of Desmond, named Connor will be taking the helm as main character of the game.
As the trailer would’ve suggested, instead of running on rooftops or climbing on ledges, it seems much of the free running will be done in snowy forests. This will be a breakthrough as none of the previous titles has ever allowed the player to climb on trees. Nothing is for certain until October 30 of this year, as it would be the expected date of release for the PS3, Xbox 360, PC and the Wii.
I don’t usually lurk on 9gag that much but when I do always find something good to share. Such is the experience of sharing good stuff to people with the same interest or with interests encompassed by a specific niche. This however, aims for the general audience of the internet.
A 9gagger was kind enough to share some key sequences to play to the tune of some famous songs.
Video above shows two artists from France, Supakitch and Koralie in their collab for a mural piece on a wall in an art gallery. The talent is totally there but you just can’t deny how godlike their brush strokes are. Same goes with their strokes using a marker. Damn.
So it’s only been a few hours after Christmas ended, yet luckily for me, break’s still not over. =)
The old Star Wars fanboy in me rekindled my love for lightsabers when I watched the video of a flashmob in Times Square, Manhattan (New York City) done by roughly around 100 fans to commemorate the release of the MMO game Star Wars: The Old Republic.
I’ve nothing but praises to everyone who participated and to everyone behind this flash mob. The civilians and the Jedi/Sith cladded bunch were doing their part well. They did not falter with their expressions in freeze time.
