Lucky Bones

Today it is very difficult for new bands to get recognised in the music business, and it seems as though many people would be afraid of listening to songs that they did not already hear on the radio. It also seems as though people are only interested in artists that have become mainstream and have topped the charts in America and the UK, but you may be surprised to find that there is a lot of music talent on our own Irish soil.

Smart phones at the ready!

We all remember the craze that swept the iPhones of the majority of country last year, such a simple concept but with such an amazing response. You run…that’s basically it.

A History of Horror

The horror genre has been one of the most popular genres in film since the beginning of the movie theatre. But modern horror has been taking a turn for the worse. Horror films today have been inclined to show more gore than actual horror and this has then made a new sub genre know as Gorno, or Gornography. Recently horror has begun to get popular again, with the release of “Sinister” and “Paranormal Activity 4” (Some may argue that’s not the case!). But horror was not always like this, let’s take a trip through the history of the horror genre and find out how it’s advanced since the black and white times of Nosferatu. (more…)
