Welcome to “Spotlight” where we highlight awesome events in different cities. This month we set our sights on San Diego and “Through Being Cool” the brain child of Derek Hubbard and Steven Perez Oira. Through Being Cool is a 21+ event that features emo and alt rock songs played like a live concert. With DJ’s Derek Hubbard and Steven Perez spinning the tracks. I was lucky enough to have Derek answer a few questions about Through Being Cool.
With only weeks away till release Recore to many is an amalgam, most do not know what to make of it. It’s debut last year at E3 was filled with fancy CGI that gave no hint as to what the game was about. This past E3 Microsoft delivered about a 60 second sizzle reel that showed some of its mechanics but not much; combined with a $40 price tag people are concerned about the quality of the game. After hands on time with Recore at Nerd HQ the game showed signs of promise.
With the dishonor of being one of the worst teams in baseball at 45-53 the Phillies are deep into rebuilding mode. Finding themselves in the gutter yet again this season the Phillies have come a long way from their World Series championship teams in the late 2000’s. Ranking 28th of 30 teams in hitting and 14th of 30 in pitching, have led to misery for fans. The most surprising thing has been the flip flop of positioning. Citizens Bank Park has been a notorious hitter friendly park yet the Phils rank second to last in the aforementioned hitting category. Unfortunately for fans they’re use to this type of losing and have found ways to keep things entertaining. When the Philly Phanatic is the best part of most games it does not bode well for the team on the field.
