Festival is running strong this weekend in downtown Grand Rapids! The sun is shining and the heat is keeping me outside. If you check out some of the awesomeness that is GR Festival, you'll see some pretty cool bands. I saw this this band called 'Slugspoon' that had this guitarist that I am sure was in his early teens, and I thought Jimi Hendrix was back from the dead!
Super Metroid is considered by many to be one of the greatest video games of all time, which I can agree with. However, what makes this game so good? Today's video games are detailed and realistic, so how does this old school 2-D side scroller still claim the #1 spot on so many 'Greatest Games of All Time' lists?
When I think extreme performance, Watain is the definition of that for me. I have yet to see these guys live, but after watching video's of them perform, it is one of the most awesome and disgusting things I will ever see.
It's metal as hell!
Then I got the email saying, "Hey, wanna talk to Watain?" Well, of course I do!
I love collecting video games! It's just a thing I enjoy to do. The quest for a cheap but rare game is a very exhilarating experience. Just imagine finding 'Earthbound' at a garage sale for $2? Good feeling right? Since 2009, my game collection has grown insanely, but here is the start of it.
I was walking down the hallway yesterday and I couldn't help but notice that our live events manager was dressed up for a Beach Party. I don't know what exactly she was doing, but I figured it was a very random thing to stumble upon.
The Final Fantasy games on PSX are just awesome. Final Fantasy VII broke new grounds for the series to jump out of it's usual medieval setting, Final Fantasy VIII went out there with the teenage drama-esque setting, and then Final Fantasy IX came around. Which went back to the old style of Final Fantasy.
Sometimes when I see people playing guitar, I look back at my guitar escapades back in the day and say, "Why did I even try?" Then I just play some video games and forget about that whole thing. Then comes along this epic video of this dude playing some amazing video games tunes in the form of METAL! Talk about 2 of my favorite things coming together.
If you saw my previous post about me running a 5k, you will know that I am no runner. However, I decided to give it a shot. It seems like everyone is doing runs these days and there is a 5k for everything. My wife's workplace at KDL had a fun-run this past weekend, and for some crazy reason, I decided to join her on the run.
Don't forget! Carnival of Chaos returns this year to Moreland's Motorcross Park in Stanton, MI on June 12-14. Over 80 local bands, and even being headlined by Wayne Static of Static-X! 3 Days of Metal and more!
