[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!

#SmaktastikReviews: Art Morera – “Small World” [Music Video]

f4e3a32c7434d6f7076388a6f9e9f529

I got places to go. People to see and a lot of ideas. If that isn’t what you say every morning when you wake up, then you’re probably not serious or passionate about your craft and profession. First things first (I cant respect you if whenever you hear that phrase you don’t finish it with “I poppa freaks all the honies” in your head ), welcome back to the hottest blog on the net! It’s your host for this post, Pedro with some more music for you fiends. I see you droolin’!

Art Morera’s been releasing alot of new content as of late. He dropped his latest music video for “Small World” from the “Morera EP” and I gatta’ say I was impressed. Not to say that his previous material was bad because I heard a lot of Morera’s music and I vibe to all. This one though? ?? This one?? This one’s up there for me with “98 green 328i” (Check that record out too..fire). Morera always brings you that perfect blend of mood music and that underground sound we love.

A lot of people have been telling me Morera sounds like Drake.

Eeeeeeeeh..

Maybe, if you’ve never really listened to Art Morera or Drake. Conceptually and musically Art Morera is unique with his own style and contributions. That fact definitely presents itself here in this Small World record. The song shows us just how small this world could be, especially to a person with lots of dreams and aspirations. There’s never enough time in a day for an artist who would want nothing more than to just materialize all of his/her thoughts and ideas right there and then. For someone who has places to go, people to see, things to do and a lot of ideas, of course the world will feel like the smallest place ever.

This video though???  Pretty tight. The video shows us a taste of Morera’s world.  The visuals and the video concept were on point. I like the whole “watching 3-4 music videos at once” theme. It adds to the replay value of the video itself. Kimber Vasquez did a great job here portraying Miami as relevant to Art Morera.  A lot of the times I see videos that could be great but the music video treatment doesn’t fit the tone of the record at all. I lie to you not I’ve seen a video where the song is about being in love with a girl with a BPM of like 50 or 60 (just to give you some perspective. That’s reeeeal slow) and the video had these insane,  super quick transitions where the guy was getting wasted at a house party.

That wasn’t the case here. There are a lot of mellow tones used which fit the mood of the song. It’s relatable to everyone. We all have our own world. Mr. Nixon did his thang’ too on this beat. His mixture of jazz with these drum patterns made it easy for anyone to just lay back and vibe to this record. There’s so much to like here. Whether it be Art Morera’s delivery, Kimber Vasquez’s cinematography, Mr. Nixon’s production or most likely all three, you’re going to really appreciate what’s going on right here. So check this out but I gatta’ run son! I got places to go, people to see, things to do and a lot of ideasssss!
