Under the Covers: Episode 2

This installment of Under the Covers brings to light one of the most unique covers I’ve ever heard. No Diggity was released by Blackstreet and Dr. Dre in September of 1996. The song reached the top of the Billboard Hot 100, ending the 14-week reign of  “Macarena”, the iconic Spanish dancing tune.

On his debut album Thinking in Textures, Chet Faker performs a mysteriously hypnotic rendition of the Grammy-winning classic. The two styles are so diverse, but work equally well in producing a sound this sweet.

Which sound do you love? Do you have a preference? Do you sadly enjoy the Pitch Perfect rendition? Sound off in the comments below!


Animal Crossing: New Leaf – Dream Big

One of the biggest and best games released this past year was Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Animal Crossing is a relaxing life-simulation game where you gather everything from bugs, to fossils, to sunglasses. New Leaf is arguably the greatest in the series because you can customize your town in addition to your houses. Players have gotten pretty crazy and imaginative with this freedom, and if you own the game (which you definitely should), you can visit any town once you build the Dream Suit. Every town has its own Dream Address so I would like to share some of my favorites that I have found so far. (Shameless plug: my address is 4400-2152-0842… Don’t judge too hard, it’s a work in progress. Now on to the real list.)


Aika (horror village) – Address: 2600-0218-7298

This is perhaps the most famous village. And deservingly so. Aika tells the story of a girl and her doll. You get to watch as her life spirals out of control. The town is set at 4 am, which creates a very spooky vibe. I don’t want to ruin the story and I want you to make your own conclusions, but be sure to visit the four houses in the designated order and explore each room from various angles.


Boondox – Address: 3400-0122-8262

This Japanese town is based off of Boondox from Animal Crossing: Wild World. Boondox was an impoverished town that you could donate to, and eventually becomes a thriving metropolis. The layout of the town is awesome. Patterns are used to create paths and elaborate roads. It really does look like a city. The houses aren’t too shabby either, and have a relaxing vibe.


Cherry Blossom Town – Address: 2900-0395-5809

This town is absolutely beautiful! The cherry blossoms are in full swing and petals fly around everywhere. The town feels like one, giant Zen garden. It makes me sad that this place isn’t real, because it is such a calm and uplifting area. Also, be sure to check out the houses. There are some interesting rooms.


Hoenn – Address: 5700-2506-3500

Yup, this is indeed the Hoenn from the Pokémon Universe. This is the best way to revisit the third generation of Pokémon on your 3DS (until we get Ruby and Sapphire remakes. I hope). Designs are used on the ground again to create water and tall grass. There are adorable cutouts of the three starters for you to pose with. Additionally, the houses are all themed. There is a lab, a bike store, a PokeCenter and a PokeMart. Be sure to check them out.


Do you know any other great Dream Addresses to add to this list? Or would you like to share your own? Let me know in the comments!

Some things to look forward to on September 10th: choice of color, the specs of the iPhone 5C, its new plastic body rather than the iPhone 5 anodized aluminum body, and the price tag.
