Music of the month! Fenomenon

Take a break from animation, movies and games.
Music of the lovely month February is Fenomenon; a nusoul/electronic duo, formed in Stavanger, Norway in 2000.
If you can recognize, yep their musics are in the game Beach life.
I love their ambient-sound style in their works.

If you wanna chill-out, Fenomenon is the nice band for you.

The Midnight Meat Train

I've just seen the movie The Midnight Meat Train. It is the movie version of Clive Barker's 1984 short story directed by Ryûhei Kitamura (director of Azumi).

If you like the Blood & Gore Horror movie, you should check this movie out. The story is quite insane and nonsense in some parts. I feel the Maya's role (by Leslie Bibb) is very weak but apart of that lead actors Bradley Cooper and Vinnie Jones did quite good.

Yep, if you want to see bloody, full of disgusting shots and Clive Barker's style twisted plot. The Midnight Meat Train is the movie for you.

One more thing, I've decided to do video clips for REFERENCES purpose of the movies, animations and clips I saw as many as I can.
So here is the first one.

The big moment of The Midnight Meat Train.
*** Warning*** Quite disturbing and bloody ***

Want to animate a killing scene anyone? :P

R.I.P. Ensemble Studios, you're legend.

Bad news again for the game industry while Ensemble Studios who created Age of Empires series, the game that I remember played with my friends in University long ago and Age of Mythology one of the best RTS games of all time, announced to shut their door down.

Halo Wars, the big RTS project for Xbox 360 has been gone gold already but who will maintain the game, we don't know right now.

R.I.P. Ensemble Studios. You will be in our heart and good luck for you all.
