I know one Cthulu-loving bastard who’s down for this.
It’s like bull riding: it would be phenomenal to last eight seconds at either of these.
Sound engineer Eddie Kramer describes Hendrix in studio. Chas Chandler tells Jimi to dial it back a notch and he’s all “ok man, cool.” Apologies for about 30 seconds of unnecessary leader tape. Also: Glockenspiel!
There are a million “How to Play Little Wing” videos. I love this guy because he’s unpretentious, has underlying dread of even attempting the song, and has a typical reaction to Hendrix about 2:00-3:00:
“is there a pattern in this strumming? What’s the pattern? What is happening?”
It’s no exaggeration to say that Half Life is one of the best, most influential PC games ever made – maybe even the best, period. For my money, Half Life 2 is the best in the series; even though it came out in 2004, it still holds up. (I’m replaying it now, as a matter of fact.)
After HL2, Valve decided that episodic games was the way forward, so fans wouldn’t have to wait years and years for the next installment. Half Life 2: Episode One came out in June of 2006, then Half Life 2: Episode Two was included with several other games in October of 2008. It had a hell of a cliffhanger, and then … nothing.
Fans waited patiently – then impatiently – as rumors came and went. Every interview with Valve was an opportunity to inquire about the status of Half Life: Episode Three, but the company always politely declined to comment. Many years passed, and it never materialized. Interest slowed to a trickle as the game became an Internet punchline. So the announcement of Half Life: Alyx is HUGE.
To be clear, this isn’t Half Life 2: Episode Three. Events in this game are set between Half Life and Half Life 2. Hardcore fans will happily take anything – as long as it’s good – and Half Life: Alyx is the perfect game to launch the company’s VR platform. Rather than posting the short teaser trailer Valve released, I thought I’d include this guy’s take. See what you reckon.
New Redd Kross album, Beyond the Door, coming out August 23!
This week, on another episode of “Ow, my balls.” I shouldn’t really find humor in other people’s pain, but these are pretty funny. Lots of the mishaps happened on the football pitch. I’ve always wondered why FIFA can’t pony up for a decent stretcher to haul injured players off the field.
