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.
aurahack's forum posts
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.
DUDE THERE'S A NEW IGORRR ALBUM WHAT THE HELL!?
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. :(
@dallas_raines: They're legit beyond measurement. So good.
@cutyoface: Gosh, I wish I was Jeff, but you're welcome!
@sub_o: The whole site seems to be, now! I'M SO THRILLED
She's amazinggggg. I've started going through her back catalogue and all of it is so top-tier.
is such a good album. ;-;
@fistfulofmetal: Damn, that's rockin'! Might have to give that album a listen later! Thanks!
@hampe:I encourage it making a list! Forming a list throughout the year got me to discover some super cool stuff, as did organise it to form this end-of-year bit.
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.
@oni: Thank you!
@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.)
: That's why I listed it as my "2013's 2012 album of the year". I ended up missing it last year and had to find a way to include it, haha.
@everyones_a_critic: You should! His music is great. :D
@humanity: All of those are way great, though I honestly wish I could get into new HALCALI stuff like I used to. Hasn't entirely clicked with me. :T
You can also sign in with your regular Amazon account through the Japanese store and ship it internationally. Otherwise, you can order it off the band's site directly and have it forwarded to you using a service like Tenso.
@humanity: That's actually a really apt way of summarizing them, haha. Thank you, though! Even if my tastes don't align with others, I wanted to make something that was at least presentable and fun to go through. Glad you found it to be so. :'D
@rargy: The more, the merrier!
@rudeboy217: Zettai Shoujo is such a fuckin' weird album, man. I hadn't listened to Oomori Seiko before and I was just like "Uhh... this is totally not my thing." and then two tracks in it takes a completely backwards turn and it's like... all acoustic and stuff? I love it and hearing her speed through lyrics like in "hayatochiri" is awesome but man... totally not what I was expecting, haha.
I hadn't caught that. I shall now.
So, do you think that you'll be keeping a new list for album you'll listen to in the coming year? Because, dude, I don't know how you even find that much music to listen to (especially when it comes to non-western music)
Point being, whilst I'm scouring that list, I would totally have a new list bookmarked and checked pretty frequently to see what you recommend.
Yup, I plan on doing the same. It'll show up on the same account on RYM under a different list. Keeping track of the stuff I listen to has been a great way of cataloging it for end-of-year stuff like this and generally knowing what my listening patterns are so that I can diverge out of it.
Discovering stuff depends on how willing you are to go out of your zone a bit. I (very fortunately) have access to some pretty helpful sites that make discovering stuff easier by browsing tags. Jpopsuki even has a "recommendations" area that staff regularly keep updated and I've been using that a lot.
It's mostly just keeping my ears open, though. I listen to BBC Radio 1 on Friday nights and anything that catches my interest there, I check out. If friends are listening to something and throw a link my way I don't hesitate to try it out. (Which is what most recently happened with Younha's Subsonic, even when I believed the genre to not really be my thing.)
If you don't have access to trackers, I recommend signing up for Last.fm and browsing the site's tags and 'similar artists' sections to the music you listen to. The top results it'll give you in either will most likely be something new to you and worthwhile!
