It seems that when I completed Indie Statik's reader survey, I forgot to uncheck the prize option and ended up winning Octodadand Starseed Pilgrim anyways. I already own both games, so I'm just gonna give them to you fine folk. I'd normally post this on Twitter but bots suck hard, so first ones to post here with a cute puppy picture (Because who doesn't love puppies? Not this guy!) will get the code/link through DM.
Kinda wish I had more than just those two to give away. Darn.
All the Youtube videos in here is bringing my work computer to its knees. Yikes.
I'll be kind and put up some YouTube text links but for the most part, people in here are posting quality stuff. Charisma.com, Slagsmalsklubben, SHISHAMO, and Kinoku Teikoku are all super rad. (I'm actually going to see the latter live in May. Can't wait!)
Shinichi Osawa, a Japanese DJ/producer. You might know him as Mondo Grosso, his alias that contributed some songs to a few Lumines titles. His style of shibuya-kei/house music is unlike anything else and well worth a listen.
promising nugus TINT who debuted with 'love at first sight' are back with the not as good but still alright 'wolf is stupid', which was basically everyone's reaction to wolf when they first heard it. lmao.
speaking of promising nugus, Billion's debut song, 'dancing alone' is not half bad either.
also JACKIE CHAN has for some reason decided to debut a boy group called JJCC or double jc, or as my friend put it, jackie jackie chan chan. their debut is not really my style at all but maybe they'll do something interesting?? JACKIE CHAN.
finally, not a new group or anything but baechigi from the amazing 'shower of tears' with ailee (which was better with yang jiwon, who starred in the mv, fight me) put out a great new song called DDURAEYO. check it out
You forgot the part where JJCC is composed entirely of Kadaj clones.
Both have had pretty nutty openers. The rule changes in F1 seem far more drastic this year than the changes in MotoGP but both had super-exciting first races and a lot of potential. Man, those last two laps at Qatar between Rossi and Marquez... crazy stuff. I hope it's that fierce for the entire season.
Also glad to see V8 Supercars getting mentioned in here. :'D I started watching it this year and it's way more exciting than I had anticipated! It floored me to see contact for the first time and have the racers just be like "Eh, it happens. That's racing for 'ya!" instead of an F1 driver's instinctive to just be like NO IT WAS THE OTHER GUY'S FAULT I'M CALLING THE FIA WAHH.
