A Buncha Stuff

I've got some shit on my mind. Batten down, hold on tight to something heavy, and prepare for a messy brain dump.

Good music.
  • I like bullet points. Well, mostly. They suck in PowerPoint presentations, especially really dry ones during which the presenter does nothing but read them to you. Presenters like that should be shot before they reach the third slide.
  • The new album from The Indelicates is incredible. In fact, it's possibly the band's very best work. Packed with emotion, sometimes aggressive and sometimes tender, Diseases of England should be recognized as the art it truly is. Okay, yeah, there is a song called "Pubes," and it is about pubic hair on the internet, but The Indelicates are, well, not very delicate. Buy it now, tell your friends, and request songs from it on good, indie-friendly radio stations.
  • I still love Sleeping Dogs a lot, even though it keeps its saves in its own folder (which I wasn't backing up) instead of in the USERS folder (which I was). I got a bunch of new gear and reformatted my hard drive. I must have been two thirds of the way through the game, and I ragequit for about three months before starting over from scratch. This time, I'll get through it.
  • I'm totally serious about this. I saw someone on Amazon complain that she was offended by Frank Zappa's Joe's Garage - primarily the song "Why Does it Hurt when I Pee?". I kind of flipped out for a few minutes, for two reasons. 1) It's a damn good song. 2) People who say "I'm offended" about virtually anything really piss me the fuck off. George Carlin used to say, "There are two knobs on the radio." For the younger crowd, one of the knobs on ancient radios was for volume, and the other one changed the station. In other words, if you don't like it, don't fucking listen to it, you puss filled, rancid twat. (That was not an anti-woman statement. I call men puss filled, rancid twats all the time. I'm an equal opportunity twat labeler.)
  • With the exception of Bioshock Infinite, DmC Devil May Cry, Tomb Raider, and Far Cry 3, recent PC games have really sucked. Resident Evil 6 deserves to be thrown to the infected thingies. Dead Island Riptide almost made me cry. Star Trek makes as much sense as the J.J. Abrams movie. SimCity, WTF? TV tie-in Defiance is about as entertaining as your average TV show.
  • But all is not lost. Get a load of this. There's a game coming in June that looks pretty damn good. I hate to get my hopes up, but it appears the developers of Remember Me are firing on all cylinders. 
  • God of War Ascension is underrated.
  • I'll let you know soon how Soul Sacrifice, a PlayStation Vita game, is. Apparently it's playing the role of a killer app for the Vita in Japan, boosting sales of the struggling portable. Sony started talking
    sequel before the game came out in the USA on April 30. I'm traveling in time, because it's April 29 as I write this, but I know my fan probably won't read it until a few days from now; thus, I write about April 30 in the past tense. 
    The Vita's salvation, or just another bomb?
  • That's it. I'm out. I'm really sleepy. The bwaps are slunking through the windows to chase me into the crombrill, so I have to go to bed.

  1. I also get upset hearing the "offended" bit nowadays... Everybody's offended these days...

  2. Do not try and shove things that you like down his throat. Depending on the age difference there may be a significant generation gap and the chances of him loving the same alternative rock band you like are slim. He also may not want to go rollerblading up sunset strip with you unless he is very active himself. If you want to make the first move then try asking him to go out with you for a nice meal and glass of wine at first. This is always a safe bet and gives you an air of maturity.
