Game of the Week
Trove is a free to play sandbox game sort of like Minecraft but completely online. These types of games seem to be incredibly trendy right now and a lot of them share the same features. Trove has more focus on combat and crafting. Updates are frequent (Weekly on Tuesdays). Recently they’ve added Pirates and fishing and I play at least one hour daily.
TV and Movie Recommendations
In TV right now my favorite has to be Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, this show has taken so many twists and turns that completely shocked me I might be able to sue for whiplash. But I won’t because I love it. Right now it’s well into the second season.
I was really skeptical about this movie when I first heard about it. I admit, I’m not a Tom Cruise fan. I wouldn’t go as far as to say I’m a hater but I will say he severely annoys me. This movie is perfect for those of us who don’t really like him all that much. Why? A good majority of the movie features Tom Cruise’s character being yelled at, demeaned, and killed. This is the entire reason I even agreed to watch the movie. I do feel a tiny bit guilty about that. But after watching him repetitively getting his ass handed to him, I actually began to get involved in the plot and like the the movie. I still feel the character he plays is a bit empty but the action makes up for it, and his co star Emily Blunt is simply amazing.
Song of the Moment
This is a cover by Meghan Tonjes – probably one of my favorites from her. I really like Meghan’s channel because it’s a mix of music as well as other videos. This song in particular really touched me because of some of the lyrics. I love the way she’s done it as compared to the original.
