The Red Viking: I Live!!!!

Hey guys so as you may or may not know I have been broken for a while and as a matter of fact I still am but that's besides the point. The point is that I am back and gonna do some live streaming for you! I'm willing to do any game I own and any if they're free or very inexpensive. I will even play games with you. just follow me at http://www.twitch.tv/jef449 and you should get an email whenever I'm online streaming. Also I cannot stress this enough, please talk using the chat because with out any questions / conversations it will be me playing game quietly and that's no fun so come over, have fun and help be the foundation of an awesome live-stream.
If you see this logo you're in the right place.

Keep in mind that I don't have college for now and can stream almost any time.
Also I'm still working out some bugs with the program I'm using so be a little patient.

Shatterblog!: Spreading Rumours (Deluxe) Review

I was hoping to get this review up Tuesday, when Grouplove's new CD launched, but my computer's motherboard quit on me and my laptop's wifi card doesn't get on with my school's internet provider leading to random blue screens. Fortunately, my laptop is behaving for the moment, so on to the review.

This review will be slightly biased because I just love Grouplove. I fell in love with their self titled EP shortly after it released and their set at 2012's Firefly Music Festival was one of the greatest musical experiences I have ever had. I enjoyed Never Trust a Happy Song but I thought it didn't quite live up to the EP.

Spreading Rumours changes all that. Truly an amazing album, I was hooked from the first track, I'm With You. The first several songs are just fun and match the fun feel-good vibe of the EP flawlessly. The single Ways to Go that gets solid radio play if you listen to alt stations is, in my opinion, entirely superior to Tongue Tied and Itchin' on a Photograph. Don't get me wrong, those are great songs, but I just prefer Ways to Go. The high energy of the first several songs had me trying to sing along despite not knowing the words at all. It slows down a bit for the second half of the album, but there aren't many songs that feel out of place. Bitin' the Bullet and Raspberry aren't my favorite songs, but they aren't bad and I certainly don't skip anything on the album. Despite being really weird and somewhat out of place I really fell in love with the final deluxe track, Beans on Pizza.

It's a really fun ride, the album is stronger than the last and enjoyable all the way through. It's easily one of the better albums I've experienced this year. Overall, have to give it a 9.5/10.

The Thing: Peter and Gabby Do COLORBATCH (Color-Me Cumberbatch)


So me and Gabby did a thing...

Yeah, THE THING! Check it out, man. It's pretty awesome, and let's face it, you know you want to. Basically, The Thing will be a show where Gabby and I just do random shit. Sometimes we'll talk comics, sometimes we'll do ridiculous things (but never stuff), and sometimes we'll talk about our feelings!

Anyway, if you enjoyed that, be sure to like the video and subscribe to the channel (which I kindly linked to you above... comments are nice too).

Thanks!

Peter, The Steamworks
