The college radio stations, NeoGAF's album of the year thread, music blogs. I used to just hear the stuff on the radio and.go with that stuff until all the radio stations turned into all pop and top hits stations. Even our alternative rock station is playing lorde 24/7 now. Also in late high school and then early college, I would JUAT ait around with friends and listen to mistakes, demos and etc with friends at their places or just chill in the car after work. About 6 or 7 years ago is where I heard the arctic.mokeys first album just hanging out with my friends.listening to their new music with them.

Now a bunch of my old friends have moved, i am busy with full time job as well as the new music I do go and seek out tends to be way off the radar of my current group of friends

Early 2009 or early 2010. Like January or February. I just listened to it the other day. The one where Ryan is saying how much he liked to use all the letters in the word and really add some pronunciation to it, right?

I bought it for $25 on the PS3 and I am still deciding if it was even worth that. Multiplayer doesn't seem too bad as far as stability, but the Single Player is terrible! I cannot even pass the first level because the game keeps locking up at seemingly random points (but it does always happen when I am supposed to pick up a gun, or the game is prompting me to perform an action such as spotting enemies for the squad). I lose my last checkpoint every time as well as my guns/dogtag unlocks. I am getting sick of that "Total Eclipse of the Heart" song after hearing it for my 4th time having to replay through the intro sequence...

The has happened 3 times to me today. I think I am just going to lay the Single Player to rest and maybe get into some Bioshock Infinite or something.

Anyone else running into this issue? Any possible way to avoid it?

I have only gotten into a handful of stuff with Giantbomb people, but they have been fun. Nothing in the past 2 or so years. The most fun I had was staying up all night with them as they waited for Xbox Live! to shut down on the original Xbox. I remember playing Mech Assault with Nachboss :(, there were also a ton of other community duders playing as well. Super fun.

Very interesting visually. Soundtrack was decent, flowed pretty well, it had this weird seedy underbelly of Bangkok and it showed it thoroughly. Felt very detached though, so I wasn't very captivated by the whole thing. All in all I quite enjoyed the simple revenge plot with the badass old guy with a sword just doing his daily routine while cutting the occasional person up like it's nothing.

I still have yet to watch it. I bought it on sale for like 12 bucks on Blu-Ray, but first, I have not had a ton of time to sit down and watch a new movie, secondly, all the middling press around it has kind of scared me off. I was a huge fan of Drive!

Dr. No. Only because I was watching The Rock on Blu-Ray (being a huge Nic Cage fan), and well, Sean Connery is in it, so I decided to break out my Bond Blu-Ray collection. That movie is pretty amazing!

4/5. (if you would know my rating system, very few things in my life receive a 5/5)

Maybe Battlefield 4, but in reality, I don't really have crazy amounts of time to play Multiplayer games for 100's of hours to get all the unlocks and junk that they have for them. That is why I kind of more preferred the whole "halo" way of having everything from the start basically. I don't mind CoD and their leveling systems, it's just that all games have turned into that... :|

I am kind of interested in Batman, but I have not even had the time to pick up the Arkham City, so I suppose I can find that now for under $20, and by the time I am finished with that in like a year, I can pick up Origins for $20 as well. It's not that I don't like them, I am just not chomping at the bit for a new Batman game either.

If anything, I more see myself playing more SP focused games just due to me not having wide gaps of time to invest in a multiplayer game.

I dunno, I have not listened to this weeks bombcast, but I would assume that Jeff's opinion on mustard is one of unavailability? I never really got into mustard until I went to a baseball game and my friend Emily was just putting it on everyones hotdogs while tailgating. I am one of those people who don't really complain in those situations and just eat it. It ended up being fairly good.

I personally eat mustard on most sandwhiches that call for it. Like I dunno about mustard on a tuna sub, but it goes great on a turkey sandwhich, a hot dog, ect. Plus it is generally healthier than other sauces you would put on (be it ketchup, mayonnaise or ranch sauce.

When I used to work at the university where I got my undergrad for awhile after graduation, it was like a 7 minute walk. I lived like a block off of campus, so that was pretty great.

Now that I have a job as a chemist, its about 17-20 minutes each way. I wish I could cut it down to 10 to 15 minutes each way, I am not in the worst commutes every category either. I feel terrible for people that have those hour and a half or more commutes.

That's freaking awesome! I might have to pick the guide up just for that!
