(8)Cos these are the best days of my life (8)
Before we start... who remembers that (8) on MSN was the musical note? Just me? No? Good, Let's go! 2004- 2012 was the time when music really supported and guided me through what can be quite a tumultuous time for teenagers. This was a time when everyone had an iPod or a Sony Walkman phone and break times at school were filled with 'bluetooth me that song' or 'send it to me over messenger tonight' or for others, music was an opportunity to just be able to take a moment to lose yourself and break up the constant cacophany, that is secondary school and teenage life.
Assassin's Creed: Valhalla — Exploring the 10 main locations in England
If you've played the latest version of the Assassin's Creed anthology, you will have probably enjoyed exploring familiar towns and cities throughout England as our favourite drengr, Eivor. But have you wondered about the names of these places and how much influence the Vikings, Romans and Anglo-Saxons actually had through invading and settling in Britannia?
The Urbz: Sims in the City
One of the best memories of my Playstation 2, comes in the form of the Urbz. It's one of those games that not everyone had when it came out on a variety of games consoles in 2004, but everyone of a certain era definitely remembers this venture into the big city for our favourite Sims.
Top 11 Hamilton Moments
When Disney+ dropped earlier this year, people were exposed to such a plethora of new material that hadn't been accessible anywhere before. The best of which (in my opinion) was the Broadway recording of Lin-Manuel Miranda's phenomenal hit, Hamilton.
The 7 queer moments we needed this year...
To say 2020 has been a bit of a rough year, would be an understatement. However, it has been the first year, that I can remember, that has held so many wonderful moments of visibility for queer people all over the world.
Hidden Meanings you had no idea were in Harry Potter!
The Harry Potter books have been in circulation for over 20 years now (I know, I can't believe it either) but how many of these hidden gems did you know about the characters and spells that we've come to know and love?
The Prince of Egypt: Fact vs Fiction
The Prince of Egypt will always stand the test of time as one of the best animated films produced (Oscar award winning for Best Original Song for 'When you Believe') that doesn't come under the Disney umbrella. The Prince of Egypt was Dreamworks' second animated film and grossed over $208 million worldwide. Not bad for a film pitch that was initially rejected by Disney!
7 Questions You've Definitely Had About 'Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire'!
The size of the Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire book was monumental compared to that of its predecessors. So, how were they going to fit that much detail into a film that wasn't 10 hours long? (Which I would definitely sit and watch by the way). Unfortunately for Potterheads, they cut out quite a sizeable chunk of not only characters, but character depth, and key plot developments as well.
