Jazz. I didn't care much for the music of my generation in high school, so I started exploring backwards. My grandparents raised me, so I became familiar with the popular genres of jazz and swing at a young age. As I expanded my explorations I sampled lots of different jazz subgenres and artists. Like any form of music some I liked others I couldn't wrap my head around. Back then the only way to really get into jazz was buy albums, check out the stash found in libraries (community and collegic) or raid a friend's parents old collection. These days I just listen to everything on Spotify. Currently my favorite album of all time is Dizzy Gillespie on the French Riviera (1962). If anyone has Amazon Prime, Ken Burns Jazz documentary is on it. It's a long, but good resource.

Jazz is life. It gives me joy like no other form of music.

I play this nearly everyday right now. I am mostly F2P, but I really love this game even without losing control and going down that rabbit (whale?) hole. After 3 years, I was tired of Destiny 2, but I still have that collect-stuff-and-level-up itch. I play PC with mouse and keyboard. I can't imagine how people would play this on mobile.

This can't be good news for the streaming services either. It's no surprise that a cable company is limiting access as more and more people move away from traditional TV towards online streaming be it Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, Disney+, Apple+ or HBO Max.

Abby is among my most favorite members of Giant Bomb since its inception. 13 Deadly Sims, Six Crazy Frights, Clue Crew, Resident Evil games, the E3 Vlogs as well as her joining the others for Sea Beasts and, of course, the Giant Beastcast. Each week I eagerly look forward to seeing her next uploads. Even when she is in a mostly off camera producer role, she can step in with a comment that has me rolling with laughter. I will miss her as much as I miss Dan, but I am excited to see where she winds up next.

I gotta say, though, 2020 continues to be a bummer.

Does this come with Prime or is it extra? Amazon keeps raising the price of Prime (now $120 per year), so this could ease the sting of another price hike.

I like the idea of Zenon and we’re heading into the Halloweentown season. The first thing that popped into my mind was 1996’s High School High with Jon Lovitz.

Today I learned that Ben never had a hamburger until he was 22.

Dan's spirit lives on at Giant Bomb.

It will probably be a cube or a tower similar to the new Xbox, but if I had my choice its design would be closer to the Okama Gamesphere from 2001.

The Outer World soundtrack is really cinematic. It's the first soundtrack from a Western game that really grabbed me. It moving and serene. Long too if you have trouble falling asleep.

More of Abby playing Resident Evil is always entertaining as are the "Clue Crew" Nancy Drew segments. Alex playing the American and European Trucking simulators have been a highlight. The Friday charity streams have replaced UPF for the meantime. What's been in short supply are the shows where multiple people appear on the same stream. The above mentioned as well as the Astroneer Brad and Vinny episodes are good examples of the team recording together. I didn't care too much for GTFO since the game is so dark and it's hard to know what's going on. The solo stuff isn't without merit, though. Brad's Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze, Jan playing Ape Escape and, of course, anytime Jeff plays old games (older than PSO2) it's entertaining content. I even liked the LEGO builds,

So far, I would say the best things to come out of the lockdown are Video Beastcast and the dual gameplay recordings where we get two versions of the same game experience. I would like to see those stay around after things go back to "normal".
