About
I enjoy games. Lots of them actually. I enjoy festivals/raves. Been to a fair few. I enjoy smoking weed. It makes my incredibly dull life slightly enjoyable. I like drum and base, old school dubstep (Skream etc), house, most electronically / base driven music. But I also enjoy folk, indie, rock, rap etc etc. Anything that is 'good'.

My first major experience with games was completing Sonic 2 at the age of 5, much to my dads amazement. Its strange, I don't remember his reaction, but i do recall him not letting me play any more games until he completed them first. My all time favourite game is Banjo & Kazooie. God damn I love that bear & bird.

Games I love:
Dino Crisis 1/2
B & K
DQ8
Command & Conquer
Borderlands
Golden Axe
Crash Bandicoot: Warped
Resident Evil 2/4
Sonic 2
Altered Beast (despite never getting past the third level)
Radical Rex
Pokemon Blue/Gold/Ruby
Super Mario Sunshine/64
Diddy Kong Racing

N64 is my favourite console of all time.

Oh look, It's me!


Here is Lynx. Lazy bastard.

I feel that everyone who has bothered following me so far should know about this wonderous rap duo, if you are not already aware. Dan Le Sac is the very capable rapper, while Pip handles the (checks ghetto bible) 'phat' beats. The main difference is that the lyrics are actually smart, a refreshing difference to most rappers today, and most songs contain or are a story. If you have any respect for real lyrics then you must love this duo. There best album by far is Angles, i mean the artwork alone is beautiful. Highlights of the album have to be A Letter From God to Man, where Dan reads out a letter that God has sent to earth, and his views on basic principles and human progress.

Its not really about religion, as many people belive, more about the abuse of it. Other highlights are Angles, a song based upon the lives of 5 different people which all come together, and has one of the most 'angriest' endings to a song i know. If you know who Tommy Cooper is, then the song Tommy C is also a massive hit. For those who dont know, Tommy Copper was a british magician/ comedian who died on stage around 1986, but no-one realised as everyone belived it was an act, and cheered and clapped through his death.

While i belive the album is perfection all the way through, the final song i recommend is the Magicians Assistant. Its quite hard to recommend this song without being given a major beatdown about how depressing it is, but the lyrics are just beautiful. The song is based around a girl who is contemplating self-harm, and Dan takes apart how it isnt self, and the repercussions it may have. The backing beat is crazy, throwing jarring sounds and notes that shouldnt fit at all, but somehow do. Dont be put off by how dark the song is, give it some love

The rest of the album has more treats in store, Beat That My Heart Skipped is much more upbeat, along with Fixed, Development and Thou Shall Always Kill, which is crammed with cultural references. I hope you dont just read this and ignore the music. Listen.

Oh and im hoping the videos have gone up. If not there is a link above where the videos should be, because im that nice.
