Also worth mentioning to both you and anyone else interested: I've started a music blog where every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday I'll post about an album I've recently listened to that I like. I want to practise my writing skills and I though this'd be the best way to do it. Go check it out if you're itching for new tunes!
I can't remember which episode it was from but it was about Jeff and Vinny talking about ordering pizza online and the evolution of technology facilitating it or something along those lines. I know Domino's was involved. (When isn't it) All I remember is hearing that bit and crying on the bus from laughing so much.
I like that they remove the context for the initial quote from Jeff, where he was referring to the first time they showed the game to press and not the final product. (Which, mind you, that sequence was in the end of the game but that quote was specific to his feeling on the first "gameplay" reveal of that game and not the final thing.)
Also Tomb Raider's okay and all but for as clickbait as that whole article is... isn't it still kinda pushing it, a little? I thought the characters in that game were all pretty throwaway/flat.
I always find out about everything they do too late. They performed here in Tallinn back in November and I found out the day after it had happened.
It's last year's album, so unless you haven't heard that yet no, there isn't a new album. D:
But I feel you on that. :< I discovered The M Machine and Porter Robinson a few days from each other and maybe a day later I found out Porter Robinson played in my town... with The M Machine opening for him. :(
I'm having a lot of fun with it, too. I don't know if I'd call it that, though.
Maybe it's just because I'm tired of racing on Brands Hatch. I like that the circuit is in the game now but jesus fucking christ, do you really need to make me race it every second event series? And does every race have to be a shitty rolling start?
@theht: I am! It's a lot of work but it's quite fun! I'm excited to share stuff about it on here when we get closer to release.
And it certainly takes a conscious effort to find music that's pretty out of reach but it gets easier if you follow some music blogs or explore around some sites. I wrote about it how I discovered most of the stuff I listened to a few posts back so maybe start there if you'd like to do so yourself!
@razielcuts: Small world and all that. :o I wish I could say the same, but my hometown is pretty devoid of international talent, save for an Olympic high diver.
@hampe: My RYM list is actually full of the other K-Pop releases I listened to, but it's mostly because the reasons why I enjoy K-Pop make it so that there's albums I know are more deserving of a spot at the top. If I was to organise the list based on what I listened to the most this year, T-ARA's Again 1977 Repackage album would probably be somewhere near the top alongside Brown Eyed Girls' Black Box. Unless there's something particularly striking about it (like f(x)'s Pink Tape) I know there are releases more deserving of my critical attention for doing something unique or interesting over being a fun distraction, which is generally what K-Pop is to me. I love it to bits but I'm pretty aware of the fact that it's not always the most complex, interesting, or well composed music, haha. Works out, though. I think my top 10 this year is pretty god-damn solid.
And it's funny, I actually have the completely opposite reaction to both CAPS LOCK and Level 3. I suppose you fall into the opposite branch of the "CAPS LOCK might actually be a pretty divisive album for Capsule fans [...]" I talked about. I'll certainly agree with you that Perfume's new release is definitely as Yasutaka Nakata as his releases can get, but that's kind of why I lost interest with it very quickly. It's a good album but I had no motivation to go back to it. His sound is so saturated that by now, if I wanted to hear that, I'd just go to listen to "EDIT" on repeat for a couple hours. (Which still occasionally happens.)
