As long as Vinny is there to break these games, I'm completely behind this.

When I started getting seriously into music as an actual hobby I was one of those insufferable kids who only listens to classic rock. I was in that phase for a few years, and then I started expanding into modern stuff, particularly into indie rock/folk. I also listened to a bunch of extreme metal, like Necrophagist and Between the Buried and Me, so much so that I totally burned myself on that style and I can't really enjoy Death Metal and Metalcore and stuff like that anymore.
Starting around December 2012, my ears really started opening to more experimental/avant-garde type stuff, thanks to Can and early Animal Collective. Since then, I've just been amassing music from all genres and styles. Recently, I've been listening to a lot of Kate Bush. She's one of the few pop acts in my library, and most if not all of the other ones produce a similar kind of arty, slightly obtuse variation on the verse-chorus-verse type of songwriting. I've also been digging into John Fahey, who developed this really cool bluesy folk music inspired by modern classical, and just makes his acoustic guitar sing so well. I've also found myself drawn to the early Detroit techno scene. Yesterday I just listened to this great compilation of Kevin Saunderson's work called Faces and Phases, which is a two hour compilation of various projects he was involved in during the birth of Techno music. Really great stuff. If I listen to metal, it's probably going to be Baroness or Electric Wizard or something else in the sludge/stoner spectrum, or maybe some drone stuff like Earth and Boris. I've also rekindled my love of Black Sabbath as well, so I've been listening to their Ozzy era stuff and I plan on digging into the modern Doom metal that they inspired.
Is this the first time you've ever listened to a GOTY podcast? Brad always gets his way by being more stubborn than the rest of the crew.
I guess, but there are more examples of him winning those arguments I think.
I mean, more people played and enjoyed Super Mario 3D World than played and enjoyed DOTA 2, but Brad is so in love with DOTA 2 that it ended up on the list. All the arguments for it that they presented felt more like they were arguing for most important game of 2013 rather than Giant Bomb's favourite games of 2013. It was all talk about its impact on the industry and esports and stuff, which they've never really discussed when ranking games before.
This is what happens when you leave a dog alone in a house for 20 hours. That's his way of telling you he is being neglected. Nice job.
this. you really shouldn't adopt a dog if you aren't at home for like, at least half the day to take care of it.
Does anyone have a link to that thread about social anxiety? I feel like that is a good rebuttal to this article.
