Old Spice Odor Blocker Body Wash: Deo Fresh + Deo Sport (10 Fl. Oz Size)

It’s been a little while since we had the chance to provide coverage for an Old Spice product, but we were lucky enough to get a box of ‘shwag from the company. This box included Proctor & Gamble’s latest two additions to the Old Spice line – the Deo Fresh and Deo Sport Body Washes. There are a number of distinct elements to this line that will ensure that Old Spice picks up a significant portion of the body wash-using public. First off, the bottles are largely clear, allowing potential purchasers to see the vibrant blue (Fresh) and green (Sport) colors of the product itself.

One World (R)evolution – Transitions (CD)

“Get Your Green On” is an eclectic track. In the course of only four minutes, One World (R)evolution are able to take on distinct musical approaches from the seventies, eighties, nineties and today. The overall rock style is a funk-filled one, with a number of gear changes that keep the track interesting. “Stop The Insanity” continues furthering this rock sound, but puts the slightest bit of country into the track. This sound can be traced all the way back from Hellyeah to legends like Molly Hatchet, 38 Special, and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Continue reading “One World (R)evolution – Transitions (CD)”

GTA: Chinatown Wars (iPhone Game)

In the recent edition of the GTA series, and the first to grace the iPhone platform, fans of this well established style of gaming might be in for a huge disappointment. In the gaming community there is a saying, “game play will outweigh bad graphics any day”. In a lot of cases this old adage is true, however, when game play proves to be mediocre at best, graphics may save the day. It may not make us change our minds about the game, but it usually gives us a feeling that there is potential. Room to grow if you will. So, what happens when a well established game series, that is wildly popular, decides to go into uncharted waters? Do we grade them on the same harsh standards as if this wasn’t there first round up? Or do we give them the benefit of the doubt and hope for better days to come from humble beginnings? Today let’s find out in this edition of the short list.

DownTown Mystic Feature

We here at NeuFutur had a chance to familiarize ourselves with DownTown Mystic, a New Jersey act that has just released a new album, “Standing Still”. This 2010 effort, on band member Robert Allen’s own Sha-La Music, contains 13 tracks of pure rock music. “Standing Still” is a step forward from a band that has already shown that they can deliver on disc, as evidenced by their 2007 work “Read The Signs”. Where the tracks on “Standing Still” stand on their own, listeners that are familiar with the days of album-oriented rock will find something delightful when they take the album as a distinct entity. Sure, some tracks (the titular effort and “Backdoor”) may have an easier time making it onto radio, but tracks like “Shade of White Bluegrass” truly extend and expand upon the style of what is a very eclectic band.

Herradura Tequila Reposado (80 Proof)

What individuals smell when they first open a spirit, whether it be Tequila, Vodka, Whiskey, or Gin, is not necessarily an indication of what is to follow. This is perfectly encapsulated with Herradura Tequila, which has a strong, biting aroma that immediately assaults imbibers’ noses as soon as the bottle is crack. The color of the spirit seems to be right in the middle of the Reposado range, not as light as a Don Eduardo but not as deep and rich as a Tonala. Regardless, the Herradura Reposado Tequila is something that individuals can enjoy considerably at a price that is quite reasonable; sliding in at a hair under $45, it looks to dethrone Patron and install itself as the ultra-premium tequila at a reasonable price. Continue reading “Herradura Tequila Reposado (80 Proof)”

Boulevard Pilsner (4.8% ABV)

This beer begins its pour in a tremendously effervescent way, which will ensure a solid inch-plus head in a pilsner glass, no matter how carefully individuals pour. The continual bubbliness of the beer is a sight to see, while there is little in the way of nose to speak of. The first taste of the Boulevard Pilsner provides imbibers with two distinct sides. First off, there is a decidedly run-of-the-mill American-style beer taste to be had, meaning that fans of Schaefer, Piels, or even Pabst Blue Ribbon will be happy. However, Boulevard has given more experienced beer-drinkers something to chew on – in each sip of the Pilsner, there is a slight bite towards the end that replaces the overwhelming sweetness of some of those aforementioned beers. Continue reading “Boulevard Pilsner (4.8% ABV)”

Defendor (DVD)

It is unfortunate that the home video release of Defendor came at a time when the media machine for Kick-Ass was kicking into high gear, as this film will unfairly be linked to the superhero / comedy genre in a way that it should not be. Arthur Poppington (Woody Harrelson) is an absolutely demented individual that thinks that ey is a superhero, shifting into the titular role with a panoply of hand-made gadgets. Continue reading “Defendor (DVD)”

True Blood: The Complete Second Season (Blu-Ray)

True Blood has to be one of the most talked-about shows of this new decade, and this is for good reason. Where a number of vampire-themed shows and television shows have been hokey or more intended for a juvenile case, True Blood injects all the drama, sex, and violence that the genre demands. True Blood’s second season is able to succeed due to tremendous arcs and storytelling that were laid down in the first season, all while fleshing the character base out and ratcheting things up to eleven for this second season. Continue reading “True Blood: The Complete Second Season (Blu-Ray)”

ModNation Racers (Playstation 3)

There are a number of reasons why individuals should seek out the Playstation 3 version of ModNation Racers. First off, it may just be the catchiest track-racing game since the original Mario Kart, and second off, the sheer amount of customization that players have over their cars and their surroundings far outstrips other racing titles. Just take for example the drivers themselves; where there are oftentimes customization numbers in the tens for objects like the eyes, ModNation Racers provides 260 different styles, types, and colors for individuals to choose from.
