Hot take: I tried watching that Japanese "House" movie and couldn't stand it. I only made it 30-40 minutes before shutting it off. And that was my second attempt. I don't get it.

 
 
 

Some vibes for the weekend. Always remember to pay your taxes in Spain.



 
 
 

I started Beacon Pines last night and this is actually brilliant. This is such a good design for an adventure game. If you have GamePass, you really should try it.

 
 
 

I never even finished Octopath and I am sold on half-completing another one of those.

 
 
 

I'm glad Splatoon remembered the fans and made sure everything was still ocean puns. They're keeping it reef! Get it? I said REEF.

 
 
 

If I've seemed absent, it's because my computer is in the shop. I've had to watch the streams on Xbox, which was great until Live went down a few hours ago. The universe does not want me watching game shows right now. Wild.

 
 
 
 

How good am I at Elden Ring? Not enough to beat many bosses, but good enough to get to a lot of them and fill my map with skulls. I mean, that's still a crazy amount of gameplay. I could quit now and this is still a lock for Top-3 of 2022 guaranteed.

 
 
 

I just binged The Guardians of Justice and boy is it something that has to be seen to be believed. The way it's directed is totally nuts. It borrows from all kinds of things and yet manages to be unique. Everything is just...so much.

 
 
 

Having tried almost every class in Elden Ring, it's amazing how well my wretch file is going. Wretch is totally viable and good. I love how much this game lets you blow past a lot of combat and just explore. I'm kind of allowed to suck to an extent.

 
 
 

Alphadeus' song for me dropped and it's amazing. Seriously, well done! It's legendary but funky. Thank you so much.



 
 
 

I just finished Archive 81 on Netflix and highly recommend it. Also, the album Witness by VOLA, recommended to me by RiffRaff, is excellent.



 
 
 

PSA: On Switch, that House in Fate Morgana game finally went on sale. Guess I've got something to play in 2022.

 
 
 

2021 Music Honorable Mention: Screen Violence by Chvrches. The new Chvrches is horror movie themed, and results are great. You get really good writing that uses horror tropes really well with their usual great sound. CW: flashing lights here



 
 
 

If you're an adult film actress, after what was supposed to be a short afternoon nap you wake up in an almost completely darkened room that is only lit by a candle on a small table next to your bed....

 
 
 

2021 Music Honorable Mention: The Off Season by J. Cole. A very solid rap album.



 
 
 

My end-of-year music blog is now up! I could only fit in so much, so I'll probably post some honorable mentions here on qtoid later on.

 
 
 

Media Moments 2021: Music

At first, I was going to do separate blogs for Rock/Pop and Rap R&B. Then I was going to make A-list and B-list blogs. But finally, I was like, maybe I can just do one blog and make some hard choices. And here we are. Some of my fa...

 
 
 
 

2021’s Obligatory Charlie XCX Video: I’m doing it here this time. It’s that special time of year again, folks. I must keep my traditions. One day she’ll actually take a year off, but that year wasn’t 2021.



 
 
 

Media Moments: Video Game Music is going up in Blogs. It's a short one this time.

 
 
 

Media Moments 2021: Video Game Music

Unfortunately, this year has been pretty slight for game music that I remember. Forgive me for the things I probably missed. I only have 2 games here with music good enough to get stuck in my head. Loop Hero Has The Best Music In a Gam...

 
 
 
 

Media Moments 2021 Blog 2 is up! This time it's the Games B-list. I love the concept of an end-of-year B-list and will probably keep it going forward.

 
 
 

Media Moments 2021: The B-List Video Games

My A-list is what it is, but I wanted an opportunity to shout-out some games in the next tier. You probably played those A-list games. These games? I ask you to play them if you haven’t. I want the developers of Observation to af...

 
 
 
 

Welp, I've pulled the trigger on my first end-of-year blog for 2021. Take a look if you dare. I've got several more coming.

 
 
 

Media Moments 2021: The A-List Video Games

My favorite 3 games this year have been no secret. I’ve mentioned them before, but let’s lavish even more praise on them. They deserve it. These are all AAA sequels, but this year was very, very good for those. These three,...
