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...

 
 
 

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: 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...

 
 
 

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,...

 
 
 

2020 Media Moments: Fantasy Series

In 2020 I read 3 fantasy series and I’m in the middle of one now. Since they occupied a bunch of my time, lets talk about them. I’m going to force you to listen to me talk about fantasy. Lightbringer series by Brent Weeks (...

 
 
 

2020 Media Moments: Horror Novels!

One of my most interesting 2020 developments has been my renewed commitment to reading. I’m on my 24th book right now. I’ve read 3 fantasy series and a lot of horror. I may talk about fantasy later, but here are the best ho...

 
 
 

2020 Media Moments: Music

I listened to a lot of music in 2020. I’ll do my best to narrow it down. I certainly made some cuts. For instance, I listened to so little metal in 2020 that almost none of it made the list. “After Hours” by The Weekn...

 
 
 

2020 Media Moments: Video Games

Hey guys. We’ve had quite a year, huh? As always, I didn’t play everything. So I will be excluding a bunch of games you probably love. I didn’t play those games. Surprised that I forgot about the most amazing experien...

 
 
 

Media Moments 2019: Video Games

Finally, the blessed medium. The one where you control what’s on the TV. Chewy, we’re home. Let’s get to it. The Surge 2 is now my favorite Souls-like I have a troubled relationship with Souls-likes. I like their comb...

 
 
 

Media Moments 2019: Pop Music

Pop this year was pretty fantastic. I can’t crown a winner. But here are a few you may not have heard of, and one you probably have. “Flamboyant“ by Dorian Electra Dorian Electra is Flamboyant as shit. But underneath...

 
 
 

Media Moments 2019: Best in Music

Greetings again. This was a great year for music, but aren’t they all? Since I’ve starting doing this, and keeping track of what I listen to, there just hasn’t been a bad year. If anything, it just gets harder to choo...

 
 
 

Media Moments 2019: Music in Video Games

Greetings! This year, I plan to take my time. I want to take a leisurely stroll through 2019’s year-in-review blogs. But this one? I can do this right now. Let’s talk game music. If there’s any kind of winner for musi...

 
 
 
 
 

Siddartha’s Media Moments in 2018: Games

Okay, main event time.  There’s a reason these opening paragraphs suck.  I have no plan.  Let’s just jump into it. Best Game: Spider-Man Also, Best Hero because it’s Spider-Man Look, I have an inherent ...

 
 
 
 
 

Siddartha’s Media Moments in 2018: Movies

Greeting and welcome to my end-of-year list…part 1.  After last year’s fiasco of creating a blog that was so stuffed with videos it didn’t load, and this year offering at least as much to talk about, I’ve ...

 
 
 

Speed Build: MG Exia

Recently I had to prep for medical stuff and therefore had 24-hours to kill. So I set myself up and built a Master Grade Exia kit over about 12 hours + 2 more later for the weapons. This was my first Gundam 00 kit after previously buil...

 
 
 

First Build: Gundam Barbatos

Greetings, folks.  As you may know, I’ve decided to have a Gundam phase.  Over the next year, I plan to drip-feed myself first-seasons of various Gundam shows.  As part of that-or maybe just because-I’m build...

 
 
 

Siddartha’s E3 Wish List: 2018

Okay, this time I’m listing dream games and specific fantasy ideas.  The big-picture wishes haven’t changed from last year.  I’ll try to avoid stuff that’s been leaked or announced, because it’s ...

 
 
 

Siddartha’s Great Moments in Media for 2017

As always, keep in mind I did not see everything, play everything, or listen to everything, so if you see a notable absence of something, I probably didn't get to it this year.  Probably. The round-up is extra long this year, with...

 
 
 

Faking it: Sure, I listen to some metal

Hi, Siddartha here.  I don’t know why you’d ever have to fake liking heavy metal.  I'm trying to imagine a situation where it's critical to pretend to like this niche but amazing genre of music, but it's tough. &n...

 
 
 

Siddartha's E3 Wish List: 2017

I tried to steer clear of just listing hoped-for games.  I'm more interested in events.  What kinds of things get announced more generally. Nintendo is Already Doing Great Not much to say here. I could say something about a n...

 
 
 

Photo Gallery: Gravity Rush 2

Hey guys, I wanted to post some of my favorite Gravity Rush 2 selfies, because you know what?  Nobody else has seen them or ever will and that is a crying shame.  GR2 has one of the best photo modes I've ever seen in a game. ...

 
 
 
 

Final Fantasy 15 and its Ancient Kings

Square Enix said Final Fantasy 15 was going to be about growing up and manhood, and indeed, the game feels like a statement about masculinity that probably has a deeper reading. Given that this is supposed to be the formative experienc...

 
 
 
 

All Good Things: The End of Diablo 3

Diablo is probably my favorite series of games. I didn't even play the first one, so Diablo 2 was just that good. I was even invested in the lore, when they brought it up in Diablo 3. Unlike, apprently, the users of Metacritic, I did n...

 
 
 

Music Notes: "Tied Down" by Forever Still

I was in the middle of writing a review of an entirely different album, when something else came up.  "Tied Down" by Forever Still is what came up. Forever Still is a "melodic hard rock band" (Their words, but accurate).  My first...
