[GAMING] Pokémon Go And It’s Unbelievable Amount of Success

pokemongo art

Last year when the official trailer release for an app that will allow you to capture Pokémon in the real world called, Pokémon Go. I released an article regarding the possibility the app will be overshooting it’s capabilities. What I should of focused on was the real capability of this app’s full potential on impacting the world.

IMG_5878If you’re playing Pokémon Go you know exactly what I’m talking about. This app hits right in the heart of a 90’s kid. The nostalgia this game created by bringing back the original 150 Pokémon search is a great moment. Bringing gamers who would usually stay inside the majority of their days are now walking miles in search and the ability to say you caught them all. Uniting people who would of never talked in the first place to long chats about Pokémon, where they found their rarest ones, and just funny stories or sharing memes. Also allowing people to conquer social anxieties when talking to new people and now being able to communicate face to face instead online in a chat room.

So it’s really about not going at 2AM in an area you’ve never been before. Because you’re only looking for trouble. Explore the world during the day AND REALLY BE AWARE OF YOURE SOUNDINGS AND DONT BE OBNOXIOUS TO OTHERS WHILE SEARCHING FOR POKéMON. SUCH AS LIKE ENTERING PRIVATE PROPERTY, AND STOPING YOUR CAR IN THE MIDDLE OF TRAFFIC RISKING AN ACCIDENT.

Back to the good news, after about three weeks of a majority of the world playing this app Nintendo doubles in it’s Nintendo Stock. Increasing the value and impact the app has acquired. As we wait patiently for weekly updates, we can’t wait for the chance to start trading Pokémon with other Pokémon Trainers. But in the mist of it all, I’ve met a bunch of people who have the same love for Pokémon as I. Last weekend, I attended a #PokéWalkMiami and for about 3-4 hours a bunch of us went on a search for Pokémon. Setting up lures and owning Wynwood! Shoutout to @NormaNow & @See_Fig!

[REVIEW] Austin Fillmore – Hear & Now EP

Austin Fillmore Hear & Now EP


Making his debut on NikkiSiixx.com, Chicago native Austin Fillmore brings us his latest EP Hear & Now. The eight track project has some gems and I feel that Austin Fillmore is making his mark. Austin Fillmore grew an intense passion for music and once he hit 7th grade he embarked on developing and mastering his skill of rap. Once as an adult he began collaborating with long time friends and producers 12 tone and Hank Iving, later he dropped his debut LP Anglishh back in February 2014. The following year he released his sophmore project Sinful Nature in September 2015. And we have this year with his EP Hear & Now.

I’ll be reviewing my favorite tracks off Austin Fillmore EP Hear & Now. So far I like Good Times, 5000, Matrix, Me You And Trouble, P.V.O, and Running Sh%t. Here’s what I thought about the EP:

12670331_1035595663168802_4743312921333267569_n[01. GOOD TIMES] You know when you hear a single and you know it’s a hit? Well, I instantly felt this way when I heard GOOD TIMES by Austin Fillmore. Perfect choice to start off the EP. Austin has a positive aspect on life and it reflects itself in his music. From a dope flow and a catchy hook this one has to be a fan favorite.

[02. 5000] This track here is definitely the club banger! With heavy bass brought to you by the amazing production by Snapbackondatrack. Austin maintains his realness with his wholesomeness. All Austin wants everyone to be okay, no matter what they do or say.

[04. MATRIX] Here’s where Austin Fillmore and featured artist Joey G puts the listening in a trance, somewhat like the Matrix. Very powerful sounds by producer Hank Iving. I think its pretty unique to have a slow down trap vibe with a dash of pop to it. Not sure if I’m describing it accurately but that’s what I get from this track.

[05. ME, YOU, AND TROUBLE] Austin provides hypnotic melodies over the seductive production by Jasper MacRae. I’m debating wether of not the track is my favorite off the Hear & Now EP. Track for the hopeless romantic. In a relationship it may seem you have the world against you, but it doesn’t matter cause you have each other.

[06. P.V.O (Positive Vibes Only)] According to Austin Fillmore it’s all about the positive vibes. His flow is on point with the production by NobilityIam. I really like this hook, “Nothing in this life is free, I do this for you and me, It’s all real no make believe, I’m the only thing you need”. Austin Fillmore provides the right vibe on his Hear & Now EP.

[08. Running Sh%t (Owl Wanted)] On the last track Fillmore decided to show his rough side. Super tough on his lyrics and tone in his flow. You can say Austin was really confident on this track. I can see this being played in a club or house party setting. Like Let’s Get Crunk!

“I’m finally speaking on all the things in life that have meaning and furthermore, sometimes painful to express. – Austin Fillmore

The overall vibe of this project is meant to put you in a good mood wether your at the club or chilling with your friends, or even having an intimate moment with your girl.

Music Video: Jasmine Jordan – Smile

Jasmine

[Los Angeles, California]

The stand alone followup to her debut EP, Time Travel, Jasmine Jordan’s infectious voice has us happily bopping along with her song Smile.

The video makes great use of color in order to convey the different types of emotions she’s singing about. With the current state of the game, music videos are often something you just do to get them out of the way and little thought is put into how they complement the song. It’s great to see how Jasmine’s visual goes against that way of thinking in order to enrich the song. After listening to it on Soundcloud, I had all sorts of warm colors in my mind based off of the production and lyrics alone. It was really nice to see those colors put on screen almost as if they had been ripped right from my mind.

Pleasant video. Worth a watch/listen for the soulful R&B Heads out there.

Music Video: SEYI – Wanna Be

Screen Shot 2015-10-08 at 10.41.44 AM


[Far Rockaway] I’ve previously featured SEYI single track WANNA BE and Seyi is ready to premiere his visual for it. One thing SEYI is able to main his coolness with his flow over Mr. Marx calm production. WANNA BE is actually SEYI’s first music video. SEYI explains the term for WANNA BE

“Up to now it has been used in a negative context in describing a person’s character as unauthentic. I’m aiming to flip the meaning of the term and use it as something positive. Describing a WANNA BE as someone who wants to be the best person they can be and believing in their own potential enough to not give their dreams and aspirations a ceiling. To be able to do that, you must first accept the person that you are and understand that your future is yours to make, not anyone else’s.”

If you’re feeling SEYI’s music follow his movement by following him on INSTAGRAM and take a selfie with your 3 fingers making a “w”, the “W” Stands for WANNA BE. The music video was shot and filmed in Soho NY and Brooklyn. Be on the lookout for SEYI’s track listing and artwork for his upcoming mixtape N>I>B (No In Between) by following him on his social media links below:

61845501[FARMINGDALE, NEW YORK] Inspiring Hip-Hop artist SEYI brings us his latest track called SIPPIN TEA. The track also features fellow Farmingdale State College Student Matt Patick. SIPPIN TEA will be on SEYI next mixtape N>I>B. This track fits well with that summer time, all around good vibes. SIPPIN TEA is a popular reference of Kermit the Frog’s MEME of him sipping tea and looking in the other direction. It says But That’s None Of My Own Business. I feel that inspired the title to this song and also the attitude. SEYI see’s that if you’re not putting in work, his going to work even harder.

Music Video: Tommy Swisher – Villains

unnamed


tommy swisher photo[ATLANTA, GEORGIA] Influences in the word can lead you to the dark side. Tommy Swisher showcases these actions with his latest music video VILLAINS. The visual takes us to a female who’s dressed in white eating at a restaurant. When she leaves, she taunted by a male who was looking for trouble. You have to understand evil doesn’t mean bad. I feel like the female portrays positive/light in life but getting peer pressured into being someone who’s she not. She cant help it. VILLAINS visual was directed by ThatGuyVeezy. Tommy Swisher raps about how life can take you away and turn you evil. The production brings this track to life, shout out to E Wonder.
