I’m really pleasantly surprised that Marvel/Disney have released an uncensored hip-hop album soundtrack.
While Bauhaus did initially break up in 1983 a bit before their album was released, they did reunite multiple times since then and even put out another album of new material. Go Away White in 2008, which was a semi-decent album.
Naturally the American jingoism of AV Club staffers precluded their mentioning that Canada’s Loverboy released arguably their finest album in 1983 — Keep it Up. Did any song capture the spirit of 1983 better than “Hot Girls in Love”? I think not.
I saw Billy Bragg open for Echo and the Bunnymen at the Agora Ballroom in Hartford, CT in August ‘84. What a great show.
Arguably you won the game, in that case.
This is a common misconception. Zelda is the scientist. You’re thinking of Zelda’s Monster.
That’s exactly what Zelda’s brother Luigi would say!
Yes, he is.
Literally anyone could have written that false information. Your sources are suspect.
The internet has been used to amplify.......questionable opinions since its inception, something I always considered part of the price for a free society. But its part in the rise of Trump and the ensuing consequences is the first time I have actively wished for the ability to make the internet go away.
Fun fact: Ernest Cline wrote a super cringy piece of spoken word poetry about his tastes in porn, and yes, even that is mired in all sorts of problematic nerd culture-stuff. For your eternal regret, allow me to post it here in its entirety. (Yes, this is real, he was so proud of it he took it on tour).
Game looks like a gorgeous mess. Everything about it looks terrible other than, ironically, how it looks.
Witcher 3 shouldn’t feel like a slog except when you need to figure out how to beat one of the monsters you’ve never encountered before. Which can become a bit of a slog if you’re a “dive in” kind of player rather than a researcher.
I hope these games point the way forward to others looking to make large-scale open-world games. I’ve loved Super Mario Odyssey and Breath of the Wild so much (BotW easily ascended the ranks to become the most genuinely enjoyable game I’ve ever played, narrowly edging the previous champion - Super Mario World)! I had…
Honestly, this album is her best party trick yet. An album that was supposed to be her big ‘fuck you’ in a lame celebrity feud is actually filled with moving self-reflection with her sense of humor remaining intact. Loved every second of it.
The definitive song of the first era of Taylor Swift’s career is 2008’s “Love Story,” a heart-in-throat Dashboard Confessional anthem that has the artistic audacity to re-envision Romeo And Juliet with a happy ending. Swift was going through a typically Swiftian tough relationship at the time, and connected, like many…
I love it when conspiracy theorists first discover that some people look alike. It’s kind of adorable.
Am I the only one who thinks that the trailer isn’t as brutal as it’s made out to be? Surely there’s worse stuff in the average modern horror movie yet no one gets their knickers in a twist over those (no one serious anyway).
Earlier this week, Sony held a press conference during the Paris Games Week trade show. If you follow games, you’re intimately familiar with what ensued: a lot of blue lights, a handful of enthusiastically delivered sales notes from a charisma-less executive in an ill-fitting suit, and a series of short trailers and…
