  1. Can I play? Bear in mind I'm bound to be rubbish, but I'd like to give it a go. I've only tried online gaming twice - once was a free Live weekend on Halo 3, and it was like getting beaten over the head by strangers for two hours. The second was Journey, though, so rather more positive. I've signed up to the Social Club as JimmyRazor. PSN id: JimmyRazor. Thanks!
  2. Do you mean The Machine Stops by E M Forster? I hope MS aren't using that story as the basis of their 'long term strategy'!
  3. Me! Me! Yes, look at MEEEE! Well, I've made a video, anyway. For a song by TV/stand-up showbiz comedian Spencer Brown. And I think it's rather good. Um, even if I say so myself. Sadly no videogame references, but I thought I'd try and foist it on you peeps anyway. If anyone would like to check it out, it's now available in stunningly low-quality pixel-vision on You Tube: Incidentally, some swearing, so I guess NSFW. As always, comments most welcome. (Of the 'What a genius, you're amazing!' variety, obviously.)
  4. Top marks for Kelthink, there - giving me feedback on my offering when it seems like I only put in the post about an hour ago! Here's what he was on about: 1. David Bowie - Golden Years 2. DJ Shadow - Skullfuckery 3. Ice Cube - My Summer Vacation 4. Mark Ronson feat Ghostface Killah and Nate Dogg - Ooh Wee 5. YoYo feat Ice Cube - You Can't Play With My YoYo 6. Digital Underground - The Humpty Dance 7. Common - The Corner 8. Beck - Strange Apparition 9. Gangstarr - Skills 10. The Go! Team - Ladyflash 11. Maps and Diagrams - Altitude 12. Jon Hopkins - Lost In Thought 13. Four Tet -
  5. Phew! Apologies to DiscoStu for not getting back to him on his disc sooner, especially after giving the CD a good listen last weekend and writing down my impressions: 1. Guitar Riffing, reminds me a little of Presidents of the USA 2. Organ riff, not bad, doesn't quite grab me, though 3. Girl vocals, quite like it 4. Like the sunshiny groove on this one - sounds like a garage band who grew up listening to the Jackson 5. 5. Kate Bush - she sounds like no-one else. I'm guessing this must be from the new album, but it sounds like it could have been a track on 'Dreamtime'. 6. Rock! 'We wer
  6. Yeh! In fact I may have understated your cd's personal importance here. Basically, looking forward to listening to your mixclub cd has been the only thing keeping me going - and if it's not BRILLIANT, absolutely BRILLIANT, God, I don't know what I'll do - probably get an assault rifle, climb to the top of the nearest tower and start shooting people at random. And it'll all be your fault! Will check it out this afternoon.
  7. Yup, mine arrived on Thursday - thanks, Stu. Have been running all over the place this week, so haven't had time to listen to even a second of it yet. Been saving it up as a kind of treat for the weekend...
  8. For anybody interested, here's the tracklisting with inane comments that I sent MW_Jimmy last month... 1. Hybrid - I Choose Noise Best track from the new album, possibly. I'll always have a soft spot for an 808. 2. David Bowie - Rebel Rebel - Getting more into Bowie these days, having never really listened to him much before. 3. Beastie Boys - Body Movin' - Such. Great. Beats. Word! 4. Spencer Brown - She The Queen - Bonus track from his live comedy album. Not the obvious route to take for a funny song about the Queen. Twirl it, baby! 5. Digital Underground - The Humpty Dance - Dif
  9. Count me in! Feel like I'm witnessing a piece of history, here. (Uh, actual history, not that Michael Jackson album)
  10. Robo, thanks for your cd - here's my first impressions feedback: 1. Banjos? This is the theme tune from the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, isn't it? Ah! Yes, it is! Wow! (Bit of a 'jumpers-for-goalposts' moment, there.) 2. Some rock guitar. Mid tempo. Quite like it. Girl vox. Don't know who this is. Probably should. It's not that Juliette Lewis band, is it? 3. Distorted bass and a guy who occasionally sounds a bit like Peter Gabriel. Who's this, then? Doesn't seem to go very far. 4. Nice funky break to open with. Isn't this the woman off Telepopmusik? Backed by the JB's?
  11. Yay! It arrived this morning! Love getting these mystery cds - like going on a musical blind date, but without Cilla Black bleating in your ear. Will give it a spin later this evening. MW_Jimmy - I've just burned yours now. Will try to get it in the post this afternoon...
  12. Just played Echoes over the summer (What? Wasting all those warm, humid days indoors? Yup.), and I disagree with everyone who dissed it - I thought it was tough but tremendously entertaining and beautiful. As far as the Boost Guardian goes, I did swear and curse a lot, but eventually beat him with this technique: http://www.metroid2002.com/echoes/boss_tri...st_guardian.php Basically twat him with a charged light beam RIGHT at the first moment you can, and you're halfway there, I seem to recall. The save points are a bit frustrating, granted. And the Spider Ball Guardian - phew, how I swore!
  13. Me!!!! (Is this wearing thin, yet?)
  14. You're welcome, man! Comments much appreciated. By the way, checked Wiki and yup, Adam F (Fenton) and Adam Freeland aren't the same guy. Bugger - there was me thinking he was a real eclectic muso-type, doing all sorts of different projects, when actually it was just some other bloke. My credibility taking some massive damage there, then.
