The Legend of Spyro games are a reboot of the entire Spyro the Dragon game series and are consisted numerically as The Legend of Spyro 1: A New Beginning, The Legend of Spyro 2: The Eternal Night and The Legend of Spyro 3: Dawn of the Dragon.

The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night follows the Continuing adventures of Spyro as he seeks out an ancient dragon of immeasurable wisdom known only as the Chronicler, tries to save his former enemy Cynder and foil the evil ambitions of Gaul: the Ape King. While doing so, Spyro not only regains the ability to utilize the elemental powers of the four guardian dragons but he also gains a new ability called Dragon Time which gives Spyro the power to temporarily slow down time.

Video Games Live(Review)

Hello, my name is Charles and I’m here to review Video Games Live. Video Games Live is a concert featuring video game music as well as a collaborated/synchronized mixture of lighting, Effects and interactive segments.


Video Games Live tours the entire world and was originally founded/created/hosted by Tommy Tallarico and Jack Wall in 2002. On July 6, 2005, Video Games Live made its big debut at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, California.


In conclusion, Video Games Live has been around for 16 years and is scheduled to perform in Phoenix, AZ at Symphony Hall on March 12, 2018 at 7:30 PM. Plus, I found Video Games Live to be an event where one relives one’s youth as well as experiences Tommy’s dream of merging video games with the musical sounds of a symphony orchestra/rock concert.

What SEEDS means to me

What Seeds means to me

2/16: At the time of writing this I have been working at SEEDS FOR AUTISM for over a year. During this time I’ve come out of my shell a lot. In High School I was always the quiet person in class that wouldn’t talk anyone and no one would even try to talk to me. I did have a couple of friends from Middle and Elementary school that I would hang out with at lunch and on the bus, but we didn’t have any classes together. I secretly felt kind of lonely but was to afraid to actually talk to new people. After I graduated, my family took me to a job/program/school fair where SEEDS had a booth. It seemed interesting, so that summer I signed up for the summer program -and it was a lot of fun. I met some nice people who I became acquaintances with, but I still didn’t feel at home/comfortable yet. Then in December, I joined the official SEEDs program. I was still pretty nervous, until someone who also works at SEEDS said he remembered me from the summer program and welcomed me into the SEEDS family. I felt bad because I didn’t remember him.  After a while though we became good friends and still are. I started talking about similar interests, things that are on my mind, how life is going, and now I have many new friends! Now I feel like I can make friends, share what I have to say, and I am slightly more confident. I am now truly part of the SEEDS family!

5/25: Today I am leaving SEEDS, I still feel the same as I did when I wrote the paragraph above. I am leaving because SEEDS has given me confidence to follow a new opportunity. I will miss all of my friends and all of my instructors very much, but it’s time to move forward with my life, and SEEDS FOR AUTISM has given me the knowledge to do so successfully. I have learned skills and made things here that I never thought I would ever be able to. I am very grateful for SEEDS FOR AUTISM and everyone here for helping me with so much. The only thing I can say now is, thank you!
