Valve Registers Half Life 3 Trademark

“Rise and shine, Mister Freeman. Rise and… shine.”……… Some of the opening lines to the iconic Half Life 2 released almost 10 years ago. Some say Half Life 3 would never come! Some say it’s just a fable to tell your kids at night about what once was… All I know is, they are wrong!

Half Life 3 Trademark

Members of NeoGAF have discovered Valve’s European trademark registered for Half Life 3! The  Rumours of Half Life 3 started not long after the release of Half Life 2 back in 2004, however nothing ever transpired from the rumours. With rumours having run wild for the last about 10 years, either Valve are toying with fans, registering the trademark on 29 September for possible future use, or something is really in the pipeline!

947Unplugged with Elvis Blue and Stuart Reece

This past Sunday was the third of the 947Unplugged events at The Venue in Melrose Arch – The 947Unplugged with Elvis Blue and Stuart Reece thanks to 94.7 Highveld Stereo and Real Concerts… No, this wasn’t an Elvis tribute concert, like the story Elvis Blue related during the show, it was an Elvis Blue unplugged session, with Stuart Reece opening up the night.

With Mark Pilgrim as MC for the night, the venue filled with fans and friends and a close, intimate setting, Stuart Reece and Elvis Blue played some of their best songs, with some new songs in the mix too. Despite having a baby girl only a few days before, Elvis Blue put in an excellent show, even coming back to perform 2 more encore songs for the fans.

Another awesome night, as expected thanks to 94.7 Highveld Stereo and Real Concer...

947Unplugged with Daniel Baron and Dan Patlansky

Last week this time I was at The Venue in Melrose Arch with 94.7 Highveld Stereo

and Real Concerts… And we all went wireless, yet again. Yup, I was busy having a blast while Daniel Baron and Dan Patlansky were rocking out on stage, unplugged (See where I get the “wireless” thing from now? No? Anyways, tally-ho-James)…

With The Venue sold out and a capacity crowd packed in between the stage and available bars, Daniel Baron opened the show with 6 songs from his album, “It’s Time”, with Dan Patlansky showing the crowd what he can do on a guitar… And trust me, this guy can play a guitar, while playing some songs off of his new acoustic album “Wooden Thoughts.”

You missed the show? Well, first of all, shame on you!… But, there are two more events are on the way… Next in the line-up for the 947U...

Rhapsody’s Sushi Workshop – Sushi 101

Every now and again someone comes up with an idea that smells a bit fishy. But when Rhapsody’s Brooklyn came up with this idea a little while ago, the fishy idea led to something genius and resulted in a Rhapsody’s Sushi Workshop at Rhapsody’s Brooklyn.

Last night I had the opportunity to attend Rhapsody’s Brooklyn’s 4th sushi workshop and I decided more people need to know about the awesomeness that happens at these workshops and hopefully ignite the inner sushi chef inside someone.

Rhapsody’s Sushi Workshop, how it works…

I was told to never play with my food, so I went Asian.

Sushi should be something fun, exciting and creative and that is exactly what master sushi chef JC Duarte accomplishes with his sushi workshops...
