Universal Studios is all about Harry Potter

US001I haven’t been to Universal Studios Hollywood in many years and this was the year, because The Wizarding World of Harry Potter just opened.  So, this epic family trip to Disneyland, included a day at Universal Studios.  The Wizarding World of Harry Potter may not be as grand and big as Universal Studios Orlando, but if you live on the West Coast, the cheaper alternative is going to Universal Studios Hollywood.

US003Fans of Harry Potter will enjoy everything about the theme town like the unique shops and waiting in line to get your magic wand.  Forgo the kiddie mini-Harry Potter roller coaster and just head straight to Hogwarts castle.  The Harry Potter and Forbidden Journey ride is one the best 3D rides, like ever.  Take the journey with the young Harry, Hermione and Ron.

Soundtype Track 2 – Jamaica in Two Parts

Since this is Soundtype’s second post, why not write about two recent songs that just happen to have the same song title – and both are very,very catchy. First up is a band from London called Theme Park with their second single “Jamaica” which was released on August 20, 2012. The band consists of two brothers and two school friends and their indie-pop sound resembles another English group, Bombay Bicycle Club, which coincidentally, they’ve also toured with last year. The track has got that tropical, laid-back flavor and, with every listen, it just makes you want to fly to Mo Bay and get some rum.  Here is “Jamaica” by Theme Park:
