STFUAJPGM #9: Brutality



STFUAJPGM is a miniature mixtape and magazine with a focus on the freely distributed music within the chip music community. Each episode explores a specific theme or story by use of text, videos, pixel art, and of course; music.

Episode #9 focuses on metal influenced chip music, which might sound strange. Nonetheless, non-believers in true chip metal will be converted after taking a glance at the new episode.   read

Why Taco Bell Quesadilla Wrappers Aren't Real Consoles

When you try to put a disc in them, they don't even play games. If they did the graphics would suck.



In fact, they literally only come out of the wrapper with crud all over them.



I want a refund, Nintendo! Make it more cheesy, crunchy, melty, and game play-ey, please!   read

Love/Hate: An Open Letter to Modern Warfare 2



Dear Modern Warfare 2-

I just wanted to take a minute to relate some feelings I've been experiencing during our short time knowing each other. I don't want to come off as being super critical of you, but feel like some things should be said in order to keep our relationship a healthy and honest. I don't want to scare you away entirely, but just want you to understand the things I've been going through during our short engagement.



First off- I wanted to tell you that you are beautiful. I've never known another game that comes close to portraying the things that you have shown me. Your maps are thoughtfully created, your environments and textures are awe inspiring, and your overall appearance is breath taking. I see the way you try to make me happy. How you undertake an endless effort to keep me entertained. I appreciate your sound design: the explosions and gunshots that blast through my speakers are like gentle whispers that creep through my ear canals and ultimately find their way to the core of my being. Your endless consideration for detail is both astonishing and admirable. Who would have know that a game like you could show me what its like to be brave...

But sometimes I wonder if the things you have to offer are simply too much for a simple guy like me.



When we're together, I sometimes find myself thinking of the past. Thinking of times when things were simple. Times where the world around me wasn't quite so chaotic and blow-y up-y. Like when I was hanging out with Bit.Trip Beat. Things were just so easy going... and fun. I guess what I'm trying to say is that things used to feel so much less complicated than they are now, and I'm not sure if I can commit myself to you entirely.

I do realize the cultural impact you have had, and just how many people are dying to be at your side. But I wonder whether or not we are the right fit for one another... you're just too controversial. It's like everything around you just falls apart. Or gets blown up by a nuclear weapon.

I think we need to take a break. Maybe things are moving a little to fast, or maybe I'm just not ready for all of the complication you bring to my life. You're kind of like sensory overload put into disc form.

If it's OK with you, I think we should just be friends. Maybe we could hang out on weekends? Or get a drink later next week?

I'm sorry to break it to you over the internet. I tried calling, but your cell was busy whenever I tried. You should text me, or hit me up on Facebook when you have a chance to get back to me. Actually just get at me on Twitter (@Gaymer4lyfe420).

Anyways, hope you're doing good. Say 'hey' to Uncharted 2 for me... but please don't tell her that I'm annoyed with her, too. Thanks :P

Sincerely,

Pixelpunx   read

Why I Love Destructoid.

I've been dreaming of you from a distance. I sit in the coffee shop, and watch you make delectable frothy toppings on all of my peppermint mochas... but why can't I talk to you? I secretly admire you, because of your stunning abs.

I've heard your penis jokes, and seen your robot helmet. I know you so well, but doubt you have the slightest knowledge of how those things affect yours truly. I just want to touch you, but don't know how your metallic exterior would feel against my skin.

I love you, Destructoid. I just want to be with you. Will you marry me?   read
