Nah. Stereogum, Pitchfork, Music Ninja, Potholes In My Music, The Needle Drop and Rock It Out! fill the position perfectly. And of course more niche electronic and metal weblogs.  Even though a good music wiki would be nice but that takes too much time and effort.... And there are no good music podcasts other than Sound Opinions... Yeah I really don't know =/ 
  
Best way to do this: 
- Scrap Anime Vice  
- Scrap Screened 
- Add Alex to Giant Bomb crew, Change the GBCast logo
- Add 1 new crew member to Tested, Make Anna an official member. Cartoonize the now 4 member team. 
- Give Rorie a music website thats only fallows "BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEN A LONG ROADDDDDDD" covers.
PERFECTION

First time the album of the year won the album of the year grammy (Even though ArchAndroid and This Is It were equally as good). 
I liked the layout this year. Instead of pandering to the mainstream they picked out artists that are great live. Arcade Fire and Muse shows are highly acclaimed, Cee Lo is incredibly lovable and Janelle Monae can be enjoyed by a crowd of any age. Even though pulling Bob Dylan out of some grave and having him mumble some country song was.... Disturbing. Especially while people 4 or 5 times younger than him perform with him. 
With this format I would have loved to see The Flaming Lips, Big Boi or The National perform at the grammies.

Yeah, I also thought that most PopCap games would suit it well. And Torchligt/Diablo 2. I don't agree at all on the TF2/MMO front. Those games require way too much communication for you to distract yourself with something else.

Title might be a bit misleading but I'm here to ask what are some of the best games to play while doing other stuff like listening to podcasts and/or music.  Games that don't need much attention and have little to none story but nice gameplay.
Preferably PC and/or Free. Thanks in advance!

Its from XKCD. Probably the most overrated webcomic ever since Hark! A Vagrant. "
I hope your next PS3 gets the YLoD as well you heathen! :P "
When XKCD is good its good. But man it's been getting so pandery lately. There's so much hype around it on Digg and stuff. Even more than The Oatmeal.

Yeah I knew it probably was YLOD.... Is there any way I atleast can take the disc out of it?

Can't. It's a Japanese model. Not Imported, That's just how someone gifted it to me. It was probably stolen anyway.

So I'm a 40gig PS3 Phat owner. I tried turning it on today. Nothing. Red Light Blinks, Shows the Green + Blue lights (I *STILL* have a Dead Rising 2 disc in it) Goes yellow then keeps blinking red. I don't understand what's wrong with it. Is something wrong with the harddrive? Did something overheat? My cousin stayed at my place for a few weeks so he probably somehow abused it while I was gone. Anyways does anybody know whats wrong with it?

Did anybody mention yet Gears of War 2 in The Hurt Locker? 
Probably. I just wanted to mention it just in case.
