  1. Chris, you are a terrible, horrid rascal.  I was listening to this episode on headphones at night, skulking around quietly so as not to wake anyone else in the house, when that music came in under the bridge discussion, and something about the way you mixed it in made me sure it was coming directly from my phone or some other source besides the headphones.  I had a terrible moment of, "Oh crap!  What did I do?  Where's that music coming from?" before I realized what was going on, and even then I had to take off the headphones to be sure.


    I assume that was a callback to your experience of mistaking the Churchill soundtrack for NPR background music?  Well played.


    Ha, I had that exact same reaction!

  2.  I'm a sucker for historical stuff anyway, but I recently watched the two seasons of The Knick back to back and came away highly impressed. One of those rare instances where everything comes together for me, great actors, directing, cinematography, amazing soundtrack by Cliff Martinez... can't recommend it enough!

  3. Our school had a shortage of regular classrooms at one point, so we were moved into the computer lab full time.

    I remember we played a lot of Half-Life Deathmatch and Starcraft during breaks and it was the only time where people came to school early out of their own free will. 

    We enjoyed at least a few months of daily bite-size LAN parties until teachers found out.

  4. On the other hand it's probably a good time to pick up a used 'old' 3DS for cheap (which I did).

    Right now Xenoblade is the only title that's exclusive to the New 3DS. Nobody knows how many more there will be. Or if they'll be any good.

    I can always sell it and get a new one in the unlikely case a New 3DS exclusive comes out that I must have.

  5. The War on Drugs - Lost in the Dream


    Tycho - Awake


    Nice! I listened to both of these a ton this year :)


    Other hightlights for me were:

    Sharon Van Etten - Are We There


    Tweedy - Sukierae


    Caribou - Our Love

  6. Haven't played much from this year that got me really excited.

    I really liked The Banner Saga and, to an unexpected degree, Thief

    And probably Dragon Age Inquisition is going to be at the top here, but I'm "only" 20 hours in so far... :P


    I feel I should mention the Diablo III - Reaper of Souls expansion as well, it made the whole game just a lot better

  7. I'm sort of playing again, have preordered the expansion and am looking forward to that.

    There's now a clan and community feature, so I just went ahead and created an Idle Thumbs community on EU. No idea if there's much to it other than a chat room though

  8. Aw man, we do not see eye to eye on this. For me, this is a bunch of legacy bands releasing their least interesting works. I wanted to like these records so much more than I did.


    I can see where you're coming from, but at least with Nick Cave and Atoms for Peace it was the complete opposite for me. Haven't listened to Nick Cave in ages and this brought me back. Same with Atoms for Peace, that's the first thing since In Rainbows I really like. (I know Atoms for Peace isn't the same as Radiohead or his solo work, but I tend to put all these in the category "stuff Thom Yorke makes")

    And for me the new Bill Callahan isn't as good as Apocalypse, but still pretty good. ;)
