The Great Gatsby – Review0
By - Posted 4th July, 2015 at 9:06 pm

Well today I’m feeling rather tired and lousy because I stayed up until 2am last night finishing a book; The Great Gatsby written by F. Scott Fitzgerald. To be brutally honest, I can’t say for sure whether I thought it was a good book or not. I mean, I had to read it for AS English Literature, but was it my cup of tea?

From a literary perspective, it was amazing. The way Fitzgerald can shape his words to put such clear, vivid pictures in your head is miraculous but I do suppose naturally, who else could do a better job than him?
He was around in the roaring 20’s, which was ironically partly responsible for the Great Depression (a reference to Grapes of Wrath!), so it was most interesting to get a bit of history in there too. I won’t spoil the book, but the description of death in this book is simply the best I’ve seen; euphemism at it’s greatest. Poor thing.
However, it did leave me feeling rather cheated, disheartened and quite angry. I suppose I’m a sucker for it, but why couldn’t it by a happy ending like the Cinderella story or our beloved Three Little Pigs? Why couldn’t Nick wake up and go West with Jordan? Why didn’t Gatsby stop messing around and get off with Daisy? Why was Tom such a berk?
I must admit, after reading both Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck and Captain Corelli’s Mandolin by Louis de Bernières in the past few months, I’ve become rather accustomed to the darker, more depressing side of literature! To think, I complain to my mother that she reads depressing books about love, but damn I’m becoming a clone!
Although coming back to reality, all this did make me wonder. By now we’ve seen it in many books, from those on abuse and those on love; it turns out that all this anger, dispute and pain is exactly what makes good literature.. and an even better author. It’s well worth a read. Go buy it. Now.
Has anyone else read it? What did you think? Let me know in the comments! smile.gif

Lady Gaga Announces 'Born This Way' Details0
By - Posted at 9:06 pm

Singer and pop icon Lady Gaga has revealed via Twitter upcoming details on her upcoming second studio album entitled ‘Born This Way‘.Lady Gaga - Born This Way

In a much hyped announcement made at midnight on New Years Eve, the star from New York announced the release date of the album, and the date of the première of the first single, along with a brand new photo, shot by artist Nick Knight.

The song will make its debut on February 13th 2011, which is the same night as the 53rd Grammy Awards, leading to speculation that Gaga will perform the song at the ceremony, an event which will definitely be exciting for fans. The album is also now scheduled for a release date of May 23rd 2011, which leaves quite a large gap between the lead single and album, time which will mostly be taken up by Gaga rounding up her huge Monster Ball Tour in North America.

Also on her midnight announcement, Gaga released an photo of her taken by Nick Knight, who she has previously worked with on videos for her Monster Ball tour. The image shows Gaga from behind, wearing nothing but a jacket with the words ‘Born This Way‘, and a picture of a unicorn. You can see the picture on the right. The full photo also exposes Gaga’s bum bum in all of its glory, which is too naughty for this site! Click here to see the full image – warning, the image contains Lady Gaga’s bottom…

Gaga has suffered a slight backlash from a few of her fans, who are complaining that they have been waiting too long for the album, and that May is too long to wait. Click read more for my opinion on this!

Personally, I think people should give her a break! This woman is constantly working, and she’s going to come straight off tour to promoting the album, and I for one cannot wait for ‘Born This Way’

Interview with the General Manager – Matt Garner!0
By - Posted at 9:06 pm
The Habbox General Manager
Hey everyone, thanks for reading my first ever interview at Habbox. This interview is with xxMATTGxx the Habbox General Manager! Now, I know it’s a pretty simple layout but here’s so you dont get confused:
My questions are in bold
And the answers are in italics
Click the ‘Read More’ button to see the interview from here! 
Hey Matt! Thanks for finding the time to be interviewed! How are you finding the position as General Manager?


Being General Manager is a cool job to have really, something not everyone expects to even get when they first start working at Habbox. I never even though about management roles when I was first a Forum Moderator back in 2008. I’m finding the role quite enjoyable most of the time and it sure does have it’s up and it’s downs at time, bit like a roller-coaster really but I’m love being in the role and I’m sure I will be still in role for the rest of the year. 
What has changed since your last interview in summer?
Not sure what I can say about this one.
Out of the whole staff team (apart from General Management and above) who is standing out the most?
The whole Habbox Staff Team? I wouldn’t be able to pick just one person and I would also think it would be unfair to just pick someone out of all the Habbox staff members who are standing out the most. Each one of them have their strengths and weaknesses like we all do and they do a fantastic job for Habbox. 


I’m glad you gave me that answer! What do you basically do in your job?
Basically being General Manager I run Habbox for the two owners who aren’t always here to do everything, hence why they hire a General Management Team. Myself and the GM Team make sure the departments are running as they should, any ideas for the websites in terms to make them better whether that is feature-wise or content-wise gets done and added and just basically ensure Habbox runs without any problems. On a daily basis I have to express my views on certain suggestions or decisions that need to be made whether that is within departments, hiring/firing staff and anything that is in regards of all three Habbox websites. At times I also have to deal with complaints that get addressed to me and make sure I deal with them with the correct actions, even though not everyone will agree the correct action has been given. 
Would you say your job can be tiresome?
I wouldn’t say it was tiresome. It can be a bit stressful at times when multiple things are going on and you are trying to work out things in your head and stuff but it can be a quite enjoyable job really. Especially when you work with such great staff members which makes the job even better!
OK, now here’s your ‘Multiple Choice’ questions, you ready?
Hot or Cold?
Which department: Competitions or News? 
Both departments are very good but I do like how the competitions department advertise like 24/7. 
Skype or MSN? 
MSN but I do use both services and they are fantastic. 
Coke or Diet Coke: 
Thanks for the interview Matt, and thanks for reading everyone!  Skynus… OUT!

Tango with Rango0
By - Posted at 9:06 pm

There is a chance for you to win a limited edition Rango furni and you can also get the Rango effect for a limited time!53untitledrango.png

All of you Habbos from Habbo.com have helped the Habbo staff so much by keeping Rango happy and safe, that Rango has decided to appreciate you all with some amazing limited edition Rango furni for the special Habbos that join the group page. The Rango limited furni is going to be the theme from the Rango film, Wild West style. So all of the furni that’s in the film should be as furni, like the amazing Rango cactus.

That’s not all, because the Rango pixel effect was in so much usage since it was released, Habbo have decided to re-release it to all of you for a limited time only.

If you want to get this Rango cactus and you have no clue on how to get it, then listen carefully. The first thing you’ll have to do is to join the group page, and well that’s it. So after you’ve joined the group page the Rango cactus will be secretly put in there by Rango himself. The Rango pixel effect will also be put into your effects, but the effects will only stay in there for 30 minutes and then Rango will steal it from you.

There’s also a video on the group page and a question where you can win a prize. Click the ‘Read More’ button to find out more about it.

Rango’s Group Page here: http://www.habbo.com/groups/rangouk

Watch the trailer on the group page and answer the questions in Rango’s Wild West Saloon to win Rango’s toy fish badge. Correct answers will be sent the badge on 11th March.

I’m going to sign upto the group page now and get my Rango cactus. Woop Woop.
