Sorry, but I haven't yet shared the information about myself that would typically display here. Check back later to see if that changes, or if I instead choose to remain an enigma.
I've been an Alphabetolympian ever since Alphabetolympiad I, where I got "V" and managed to write a coherent review of some ROM I played for about 15 minutes.
Getting "Y" for the second year in a row was a little disheartening, but I actually found a game, played the crap out of it, and then ran out of time to finish the damn review. This might be a blessing because the review was turning into a combination FAQ/horrible fanfictiony thing. Since you guys don't care for that experimental garbage, this is the only place to post the unfinished piece.
Yie Ar Kung Fu (Arcade)
The 37th Chamber of Sho'Ting
Some new releases in the world of music. Most you've probably never heard of.
!!! - Myth Takes
Innately danceable tunes, but the album runs out of steam halfway through. I like the vocals even if the lyrics are pretty much empty nonsense. Title track is the lone standout, which is kind of sad. 6/10
Acid Mothers Temple & Melting Paraiso UFO - Crystal Rainbow Pyramid Under the Stars
The conjoined doubleship radiates a white halo from the coupled grouping of steel and plasma. A white halo of radiation emitting from the metaphorical siamese twins.
Start Round, said the commander in his enthroned chamber into the chrome microphone.
The innumerous flunkies outside obeyed the commanders every whim. This was no exception.
I caught half an hour of Adult Swim tonight after peeling myself away from the Genesis for a while.
First was the dramatic season finale of "Saul of the Mole Men", a show which I previously only saw two minutes of, got irritated, and changed the channel. I was also stoned at the time. That's pretty fucking bad when even 420 cannot convince me that something is amusing, not even in a "compellingly awful" way.
here are some more recent releases floating around my hard drive.
Behemoth - "The Apostasy": Mainly the same old frenetic guitars underlining Inferno's spastic drumming and Nergal's gravel-gargling vocals. Sometimes it sounds exactly like their last two albums, but some tracks such as "Inner Sanctum" are pretty fucking weird. It's so avant-garde, Nergal sounds more like the guy from Kraftwerk with spoken lyrics and there's even a piano in the background. Ugh. 6/10
The Insane Clown Posse gets a bad rap because their music appeals to people who are just beginning to discover the joys of saying the "F-Word", or are otherwise stuck in that phase for one reason or another. Most of their music is fairly uninspiring "extreme" rap with graphic lyrics about subjects such as fornicating with obese women and slaying humans with hatchets. Their fans, known as juggalos, wear the same black and white face makeup as the two wikkit clowns comprising ICP -- Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope. And so it was, 10 million juggalos made this miraculous film possible. Against all odds these two ultra-crazy clowns have produced a masterpiece of irreverence.
