Short Wave Gamin: Blizzcon 2010 Update #1

Well I was a little underwhelmed with what was announced for Diablo 3. I guess we were all (I was kind of) hoping for a release date, but that’s not to take away with what was actually announced. The PvP Arenas do look pretty awesome and the Demon Hunter is more than likely what I’ll [...]

Short Wave Gamin #3: Working For the Weekend Part 2

I couldn’t come up with another title because I’m not creative, but here’s a question for you: what’s more important than CMJ? That’s right, BLIZZCON 2010! Opening Ceremonies start at 1:30pm Eastern Time, so get some Mountain Dew, fire up some Diablo, put your 20-sided die on the table, and get ready for the festivities. [...]

Working For The Weekend

I still haven’t been to a CMJ show despite the fact that I have the badge, but I’m hoping to remedy that soon. I’d love to see the Corin Tucker Band at Maxwell’s but I’m not sure if I’ll be able to make it. I think I already missed the Paw Tracks show, but there [...]

Shoot on Sigh: Panda Bear’s You Can Count On Me

What can I say, I like Animal Collective and the people in it. Panda Bear has put out the second in a line of 7″s in preparation for his new album. This latest limited edition 7″ that came out last week is already going for at least 6 times the initial price on Amazon market [...]

Creationism: Bob Dylan’s – Whitmark Demos 1962-1963: The Bootleg Series Vol. 9

This review should be going up on insound in the next few days, but SWR gets it early: Before Bob Dylan became one of the most prolific, inspirational and important artists in music history he was writing for Leeds Music and Witmark Music, hoping to license his songs to other groups and artists who were [...]

Short Wave Gamin #2: Motion Gaming – Malibu Stacy’s New Hat?

I’ve had a discussion about all of this with my friends Colm and John (so you guys won’t read anything here you haven’t heard from me in the last week) and I just wanted to share some thoughts about it all that I have because I have nothing else to write about right now. Here [...]

SWG: Do I hate or love GTA?

Short Wave Gamin #1: I Buy Too Many Games

Since Halo: Reach has come out I’ve amassed a collection of games that will last me well beyond the end of the year, but I haven’t stopped purchasing them and I don’t play on stopping either. I haven’t written about any of them yet but I plan on writing about all of them (sorry everyone). [...]

The SWR10 with Heat Seger (as in BOB) Missile

shall we upgrade to a rocket launcher?

It’s After The End of the World: The Corin Tucker Band

First, I love this record. I should write more about it but I’m trying to write less now a days. All the power and angst of the one time Sleater-Kinney singer is there, but it’s more subtle. I’ve been trying to come up with singer songwriters to compare her too for this album: Paul Simon [...]
