eh? three come at once 🙂

slightly old pic. such great, strong music though. with PE, it’s one of them ones whereby you know the songs but never actually own the CD. fixed 😀

oh by the way is Black Steel in the Hour of Chaos possibly one of the greatest rhyme performances to ever touch the mainstream?

that never really caught on with me but I do regard him as not only one of my favourite musicians of all time but a visionary, an angel among the rest

the mixdown on Zeitgeist is poor but once you become used to
it, it’s the usual goodness. I think this album puts to death the allegations that D’arcy omission from the reforming TSP line-ups weakened it. James Iha still leaves a slight hole

there’s a track on Funkadelic that is totally ripped off by The Verve (another favourite group of mine) but…perhaps it was done in homage? regardless, it is a great debut. surely Eddie Hazel deserves more credit for his guitar virtuosity?

’til the next physical media fest…

stayed up to 4am playing this game

am in pain. not as young as I used to be

decided to buy this as I thought I would try to ingratiate myself with the Halo franchise before 4 hits the shelves and I contemplate a purchase. as it’s been such a long time since playing any next gen titles or FPS in general it’s interesting to finally play such a revered and cherished game

initially I hated it. I’m still not used to users having free reign over the characters / players camera meaning my aim was at first about as accurate as a drunk peeing into a thimble but…I have gotten used to it. kinda. much practice still to be had

I’m starting with Halo Reach. even though it was released after the 3rd instalment it is set before the first so I’m attempting to faithful and true to chronology

Lord…help me with stamina 🙂

(from left to right) Coldplay Mylo Xyloto, Kwassa Kwassa and Zing Zong by Kanda Bongo Man

I truly believe that Soukouss, Jazz and Funk are some of the greatest musics in life so am more than happy that I’ve finally got some Kanda Bongo Man in my life. reminds me of back home. it’s like the edge of joy and pain

Coldplay…well not one of their best. Hurts Like Heaven noticeably clips and the whole tracklisting of the album is off. after the return to form of VLV, it’s a semi return to the bloat of XY with a pop edge. still worth it for a few entries in the ‘play canon
