At an event in London this week, I had the chance to sit down with actor and voice over legend, Troy Baker
The dividing line between toys and video-games has shifted back and forth over the years. Most recently though there has been a blurring of this distinction. Many toys come with technical functions and many video-games are now support by physical play-things -- take Disney Infinity for example.
We're talking about actual human beings existing in the twilight of grief and primal fear that comes with cancer. And if a lung, bowel, or pancreatic cancer patient feels, in that horrific state of mind, that it'd be easier to have a more socially acceptable cancer like breast cancer... We can't judge that. What are we doing, policing the private fears of terminally ill people now?
Speaker John Bercow has recently commented that he would like to curb the "yobbery and public-school twittishness" displayed in the House of Commons. But bawling like toddlers fighting at a creche is not an activity exclusive to the mother of all parliaments. Around the world, elected representatives regularly shout, wail, make animal noises, cry and fight. Here are 10 examples...
Jess Glynne: the lead vocalist on two of the biggest hits of 2014 so far, Clean Bandit's current number one record Rather Be and Route 94's My Love. The 'girl on vocals' has everyone, not just waiting to hear what Jess does next, but see her as an artist in her own right.
Shot in Dublin's Hacienda pub, the idea for the Valentine video was put together within four days. Director Hugh O'Conor played the song to Gillen, who quickly signed up to feature in the video.
We should reflect on the causes and how to prevent a repeat of the massive, inhumane loss of life that the 'Great War' brought about.

Video is and will continue to be the primary vehicle for our collective consciousness. Moving pictures and sound have the power to instruct and inspire like no other medium. And video is still in its infancy.
Michael Gove seems to like annoying people. His cocksure manner and breathtaking self-confidence means that he regularly comes into conflict with teachers, students, Lib Dems, his own deputy... pretty much the entire public.
Enrique casually leans on one woman's nearly naked bottom, while another woman grinds hers into his right ear. He buries his handsome face in the crevice of the first woman's arse. The camera pans across a room filled with women in bikinis, lacy lingerie, and see-through underwear. The men are fully clothed.
Let it not be said that I ever misinterpret situations. I recently had a wonderful and frightening telephone conversation with Exotic Stephen, who is the coolest man on Earth. However, he also harbours a terrifying obsession with accidents.
Nigel Farage is frequently described as a "populist" and "man of the people" (although seemingly only by his critics), but last week he did something uncharacteristically un-populist...
One of my New Year's Day rituals is to go through all the films I saw in cinema the previous year and compiling a list of top 10 titles. Yes, I realise I'm a bit late posting this, but here are my favourite films from 2013:
How does this legendary ad rank amongst the rest of the Heineken flock then? It has all the love it or hate it swagger that some of their previous spots contain but coupled with a great message to men out there with even the most quirky and seemingly pointless skills.
What might be the basis for not accepting second class health? Perhaps because its as innate to our spiritual sense to feel health is natural as it is politically to demand equal rights. "In health there is freedom. Health is the first of all liberties," mused Swiss poet and philosopher Henri Frédéric Amiele.
U.K. publisher The Guardian has an agreement with video ad tech provider Adap.tv for a platform to sell video inventory to select advertisers in an ...
