  1. First, Mariotti's a blowhard. Second, some Pirates fans are actually quite happy with the deals that have been made since the new GM came on board in 2007. Yes, it looks really bad. Over the last two years they
  2. I can count on one hand the number of games for which I've paid full price. The last one was Mass Effect. The next one will be Brutal Legend. I generally buy games used, so my gaming dollar goes to glorified pawn shops and random Amazon sellers. The developer never sees one cent (I've got a mortgage, dammit. Don't judge me!). However, I want Double Fine to take my money for this game. This type of creative risk should be encouraged.
  3. She's changing her name from Laura to Sister Isobel. Nice. Me First and the Gimme Gimmes - The Boxer
  4. You can't go wrong with all that NOFX on a workout mix. Nothing like punk rock drums to get the blood flowing. I had "The Decline" on my exercise bike mix back in the day, and I'd try to match the intensity of the song. That was 18 minutes of hard work. And here's a metal gem you might want to try: Racer X - Technical Difficulties Good luck!
  5. Yup, I tried to make a shocking appearance. It's not that I don't like Radiohead, far from it. I just think they get too much credit for writing about heavy stuff. Everybody knows the best songs are about chicks! BTW, "You Can Make Him Like You" rocks. The Avett Brothers - Pretty Girl from Chile
  6. Most overrated band ever: Radiohead Oooooooh yeah, I said it! The Gin Riots - Be Sweet off the brand-spankin' new Afghan Whigs tribute CD.
  7. Beatallica - The Thing That Should Not Let It Be when i find myself in times of trouble hybrid children come to me pray for father roaming, roaming free Ah, five years later it still brings a smile.
  8. Drive-By Truckers - Goddamn Lonely Love
  9. Good god, I do believe this band is going to be huge.
  10. ^ Rock. Uncle Tupelo - Everybody Knows This is Nowhere ^ Bitchin' live cover.
  11. Yah dude... your bud must have found the secret way to rip from YouTube!

  12. Favorite line from that song: "I
  13. Do they do that little squealing giggle that good ol' Black Francis does before he sings "What's that floating in the water?" Because that is the best part of that song. Earl Greyhound - S.O.S.
  14. Diligent readers of the Internet may have seen it already, but Kotaku has a "what we know so far" post up. It has a Q&A with several Bio and LA folks, including lead writer Daniel Erickson and art director Jeff Dobson. Here's the link: READ ALL ABOUT IT! Here's a snippet from the part where they talked about the story. Edits are mine.
  15. Some blasts from the past in here for sure... Old Skool Wheelman and Ghost of Anakin were two of the most prolific posters back when I joined. And I do remember the Ender debacle, although I wasn't paying much attention at the time. I was probably more concerned with whether or not KOTOR 2 would have upgradable blasters.
  16. I assembled a bookcase today. The materials seem to be well made, and I don't believe I skipped any steps, so I believe that it should be able to fulfill its purpose.
  17. David Vandervelde - Nothin' No
  18. Re: The Dandy Warhols I always liked "Minnesoter." Don't know if it was a single though. "Hard On for Jesus" was another good song, but I'm 100 percent certain that wasn't a single. Anyway, I'm listening to "Police Truck" by the Dead Kennedys, and it's taking me back to high school.
  19. Haha I thought you hated the Femmes? Drive-By Truckers -
  20. David Bowie - Moonage Daydream
  21. The Hold Steady - Magazines Their new album is very good, but don't let anybody try to tell you it's better than their last one.
  22. Drive-By Truckers - Goddamn Lonely Love
  23. The National League All-Stars' starting outfield should have been all Pirates. No, really.
  24. You know, I heard a terrible Dropkick Murphys cover of that a few years ago. I didn't know there was anything the Dropkick Murphys did that wasn't terrible Modest Mouse ~ Wild Pack of Family Dogs Zing! No, really, that song was terrible even for them. Even when I used to like them (in small doses) I still thought it was awful. Marvin Gaye - Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler)
