Almost finished with season 1 of Mob Psycho 100, and it’s really great! Took a few episodes to sink its teeth into me, but I am now 100% in it for the long haul. This that good shit.


 
 

The Outer Worlds was a good time, but the ending scenes resort to the same bullshit, still-scene montage copout that’s been around since Fallout 3. That super sudden, feed of text, “use your imagination” fluff should have been abandoned back in 2008

 
 

This is still my favorite opening to any TV show ever.

 
 

After years of trying, I finally managed to get my hands on this. It’s a reissue, but it’s better than nothing and sounds great! They’re a scrappy pop band with a punk mentality, from back in the late 70’s, and they’re one of my favorites.


 
 

Based on the memes, I thought I’d hate Baby Yoda/The Child, but they are awesome. Occams was right. The Mandalorian is very good. As of Episode 6, it’s easily my favorite Star Wars entry since the original trilogy.

 
 

I finally watched Joker, and it was pretty fantastic. As an extension of the Batman canon, it was damn near perfect. Really surprised me.

 
 

This is the only version of Freebird I get down with...

 
 

Fendibull, an old head Dtoid user, reminded me how amazing Ariel Pink is tonight. This whole album is delightful and worth your time. This song, however, is that fucking good shit.

 
 

Found this album, still sealed, for crazy cheap yesterday. Love me some Country Teasers! They’re a solid mix of Devo, The Fall, and Oblivians. They’re a bunch of degenerate assholes, but goddamn can they ever write some good tunes!


 
 

Disqus is being fucky right now for me too, Reaper. I can’t even log in. I’m sure it’ll be sorted soon enough.

 
 
 

The Shape of Punk To Come is a landmark album for me. It’s one of the only modern screamo/hardcore bands I still listen to. I got into it hard when I was like 14, and it led me to dope stuff like Wire, Minor Threat, and Fugazi. I owe this album a lot.

 
 

I’ve probably posted this here before, and I will almost definitely post this here again, but Magic Sam is just stupid fucking good.

 
 

Does anyone here want a steam key for Frog Detective? It’s super short but wholesome and good.

 
 

I spent Halloween getting wasted with friends, and this is the aftermath...


 
 

If you’re looking for something a bit different to watch for Halloween, The Battery is really solid. Dudeman starred in, wrote, directed, and filmed the whole thing himself for around $10,000. It has some flaws, but the payoff is 100% worth it.

 
 

This whole record is really neat. Probably the closest thing to a proper successor to the R&B throne since D’Angelo.

 
 

The Carrion demo that released today is really rad, and y’all should check it out.

 
 

“One For All 1,000,000% Delaware Detroit Smash” is a perfectly normal, and not at all obtuse, name for a special move, and I love it.


 
 

The Clean is one of my favorite bands of all time. Buncha dorks from New Zealand making goofy indie rock. They’re rough around the edges, poppy tunes with a DIY punk attitude, but it hits hard for me. Rings “true.”

 
 

My band just recorded a song with the lyrics: “There’s a dildo in the park, I don’t know why. (x2) It’s just lying in the grass. Might’ve been in someone’s ass. There’s a dildo in the park, I don’t know why.”


 
 

I just finished a blog about NieR: Automata that I’ve been intending to write for about a year now. It goes live at 10am EST tomorrow.

 
 
 

WHAT THE GOLF? is amazing, and all of y’all should fucking play it.

 
 

Y’all probably don’t realize it, but Eric Weichhart is the fucking man, and he’s been helping behind the scenes here for a long time as a member of staff. Master of goofy photoshops and brightening days. He’s really good people.

 
 

It looks like we’ll be working on a new version of the cblog editor in the near future. I’ve been charged with reaching out and seeing if y’all have any suggestions for possible features or fixes you’d like to see. Lay ‘em on me, folks!

 
 

The best part about Link’s Awakening is that the entire game is on the cartridge. No day one update or any of that BS. No waiting for an install either. You just snap the game in, and you’re playing. I fucking love that.

 
 

I just started watching My Hero Academia for the first time. I’m only five episodes deep, but this dude is 100% my favorite so far!


 
 

Y'all might not have noticed, but the sidebar is finally fixed! Thank Sam! He's part of the tech team, and he's da man! (You can now click on cblogs via the sidebar and images load properly! Baby steps!) If anything else is acting funky, hit me up here!

 
 

I just finished The Final Test of the tutorial in Hitman: The Complete First Season, and it was dope as fuck, but now I have to wait 20 minutes for the rest of the game to download... with a physical copy of the game.... The future is now.....

I like video games, music, comics, and corgis a whole lot. Pretty much everything I do in my free time revolves around these four things...
