Walking on Sunshine

If you’d like to hear masterful Toronto-based hardcore hardcore experimentalists Fucked Up covering Katrina & the Waves’ 1980s hit ‘Walking on Sunshine’, I suggest you click here.

MP3 blogs

Just a quick post to point at a couple of mp3 blogs that I think are pretty cool and you might want to check out. If you’ve got some favourites, feel free to share ’em in the comments. Note – none of these are blogs that are likely to post high-profile releases. They’re more about […]

It’s nice to hear from you

Sometimes blogging can seem like a bit of a thankless slog, or worse a pointless endeavour… pissing words into the winds of the internet. This harsh fact is evidenced by the corpses of hundreds of thousands of abandoned blogs and websites. I enjoy writing, I enjoy sharing the things I’ve written and I like the […]

Stuff I Won’t Hate

I’ve lately become a little obsessed with the pop culture junkie blog Stuff You Will Hate, which is mostly written by some of the guys from Metal Inquisition and some teenage scene girls. You’d be right in thinking that this is not something that would traditionally be up my proverbial alley and you’d be spot […]

X-COM returns, draped in 1950s Americana

Having read Alec Meer’s preview of the 2011 X-COM revamp, I am unspeakably excited. It sounds like it could be a genuinely thrilling re-imagining of the license; in his words, “it’s someone throwing money at the concept, not leaving it stranded at the pointless poles of fan-exploitation or slavish re-creation.” The preview appears over at […]

Enough is Enough

Moving home

I’ve moved house and we currently have no internet, so no updates for a while longer. Catch Rolo Tomassi & Throats on their current tour if you can!

Sabbatical

I’m feeling a bit disheartened about the blogging thing at the moment so there’ll be no new posts for a bit, apart from one or two that have been queued up for a while. I’ll be back, though, got a load of notes on a bunch of things that I’ll turn into reviews at some […]

Half-hearted Wednesday post (actually, good news about indie gaming)

Some radspiffy news over at Rock, Paper, Shotgun: Some indie games make a lot of money. Most don’t. Worse, many never even get off the ground because they have no funding. The freshly-announced Indie Fund means to change that – it’s an angel investment group set up by some of independent gaming’s greatest current luminaries […]
