It's quite exciting to live in Scotland right now, regarding Independence. I've never seen my people so passionate about something on such a level, either way.

On the other hand the saddest part has been the huge English backlash. Some conservative politicians want to reduce our funding simply because we dared have a vote to make Scotland an independent country. Some punters even want military action? It's very disappointing. I guess it's hard to feel sympathy when you live on the good side of the arrangement.

Smooth McGroove sings "One Winged Angel" acapella from FFVII. Nice cover. You can tell this must have taken him a long time to compile.

Just got back from Riotfest in Chicago.  The highlights were finally seeing Streetlight Manifesto and Me First and the Gimme Gimmes.  Primus was great at always, but I've seen Les Claypool about a dozen times and even though he is impossibly strange and brilliantly talented, after you've seen someone that many times it tends to feel more like they're just riding the bike and cashing a paycheck. I tend to feel the same way about NOFX too, though it didn't take away from my enjoyment of their set.

Though I'm not really a fan of their music (a bit too clubby for my taste), I couldn't help but respect Die Antwoord's style.  If you've never seen or heard them before, it's completely worth it just for the shock value.  They started out their set in bright orange sweatsuits and eventually stripped down to just their underwear.  The two singers are married and the husband is about 6'4'' while the wife can't be any taller than 4'10".  She looks like a 12 year and sounds like a mouse.  A lot of what they sing/rapped was a mix of english, dutch, afrikaans and in at least one instance what I assumed to be either klingon or some african language ive never heard of.  Very high energy from beginning to end and VERY surreal to watch and hear.  Afterwards, my girlfriend wouldn't shut up about how "avant garde" she thought they were, so that got on my nerves...

Also (and emphatically) fuck weezer and jane's addiction.  Rivers Cuomo is a pompous piece of shit who hasn't written anything truly original since pinkerton.  They "played" for an hour and 15 minutes but still took a 20 minute set break (WHAT. THE. FUCK??)  And even when they could finally be bothered to play their goddamn music for the paying customers, every word that guy spoke was slathered in self importance. just...ugh.

As for Jane's Addiction...this is the 3rd time I've stumbled upon them at a music festival, and every single time they phone in their performance so poorly that it makes me legitimately angry.  It's like Perry Farrell wants to make it painfully obvious how little he gives a fuck about the people forking over a shitload of money to see him perform.  He brings no energy to the stage and was basically sing talking for 3/4 of the hour and half (out of a scheduled 2:15) he actually got around to doing his fucking job. That guy deserves a special kind of hell.

You'd tbink after the travesty of Colonial Marines that the Alien video game franchise was effectively dead and buried...yet somehow from the wastes of angry consumers and broken CDs, this arose. Makes me wish I had a PC real bad.

Edit: OH SHIT, this is coming out on the quattro? Fuckwin!!!

I don't know why people are bitching about story or lack of content or the like. The game has a shitton to do for q generic fps, and is pretty on par with XIV in terms of initial content, difference being that you pay monthly for XIV and destiny isn't pay to play. In strict gameplay terms it's fantastic. Handles as well as Halo ever did, smooth controls and semi-precise aiming (hard to tell when it's all online) and an easy to pick up control scheme. The scenery is beautiful and well designed, and nothing is as awesome as baseball sliding in snow and making ass prints. A lot of people complain about thd weaponry, but why are you expecting alien weapons everywhere? Most of the alien arms are funky and strange looking, didn't any of you watch district 9? It shouldn't be assumed that you can pick up some alien gun and it fires like a normal assault rifle...(ok I'll stop that now). Seriously though, it is a bit underwhelming to have such a generic assortment of weaponry, though the weapons are all seriously well designed themselves and handle beautifully. My biggest grievance is just the sheer difficulty of packs at high levels, and that's just me sucking honestly. Doing level 22 strikes devolves into hit and run tactics and serious camping syndrome. I assume as my equipment improves (most of it is still 18 or 19) I should be better adapted to actual combat, but til then, my new pue sniper rifle is gonna get plentg of work.

In reality, the hype was WAAAAYYYYYYYY to strong for this game, but it is a terrificly awesome game from a mechanical standpoint. Also, all the Peter Dinklage haters should die for their dislike, his voice fits the ghost so well it's awesome.

I kinda enjoyed it solo, but I say that about every mmo. Though the two times I played MMOs with someone else I'll admit I enjoyed it a lot more...that was forever ago, though...

Once you get to Alabasta, it'll be easier to take it in chunks, just an arc or 3 at a time. That's what I did at least.

Speaking of coffee though have I mentioned lately how much I hate Keurig. I don't care about the cost or environmental impact /k-cup coffee is awful tasting good god/.

Agreed. It's awful. Trades quality for convenience... Which is the American way, after all.

Still better than the crap Dunkin Donuts tries to sell as coffee these days, however.
DD Manager: "Hey,! This coffee actually kind of tastes like coffee! What did I tell you guys about using the right amount of grounds!? Water this down, now!!"

Games are taking a good direction, I think
