    Do Zach Hill and Marnie Stern count as indie? If so, how are their respective new albums?

    I like the new Marnie Stern record. It's weird, but I find it enjoyable. Never a dull moment on the whole record.

    That's a great song, I think there was a different version of that song on whatever that get out the vote album in 2004 was. But that's one of their best tracks easily. Also check out "carparts" if you're feeling the band.

    I really like a few Long Winters songs. "Carparts," "Stupid," there are a few others, and one in particular that I only ever heard once and have never been able to find again. I'm pretty sure it was a secret or bonus track, and it was very different from their usual stuff. Been annoying me for years now.

    Weird. My best friend is going to be opening for Marnie Stern in DC.

    I can't get into them as hard as I try. I just can't. Black Sheep Boy makes me want to kill myself and the new CD is nothing short of that.

    Also, how's Lala.com's catalog compared to emusic?

    Black Sheep Boy is depressing as fuck but for some reason that doesn't get to me.

    But it remains my most played album. I didn't like Okkervil River at first but now I'm in love.

    They are really fucking good.

    I didn't get into them until after The Stage Names, but man I am glad I did.

    I've ended up the same with MGMT. At first it was just "Kids" and "Time to Pretend," but now that I've gained some distance and headed back in, I have to say I love the album a whole bunch.

    Cool, Zach Hill would be one of the 5 musicians still alive I would like to meet.

    It's now 4:13 in the morning. I got home at about eleven o'clock and starting moving my mail over to Thunderbird, the Mozilla mail component that Scott said Gary said had nice spam filtering. I imported my old mail into it for some reason, to accelerate my hair loss I think, but I've trained it like a faithful pup to ferret out spam and viruses from of a sample of fourteen thousand hand-flagged mails. I am at the point where coffee just makes my teeth vibrate.

    The new comic strip concerns the N-Gage Special Forces, a crack group of liars and miscreants whose job it is to spread lies about the N-Gage. When I say lies, I mean things like telling people that it is good or that someone should buy one with money. I wince when I look at it. When it comes time to account for why it is such a monumental fuck-up, in my mind I see a group of men all around a long conference table. They all shrug in unison.

    I asked people to tell me if they could recall the community standing up, claiming a game for their own, and taking over development on a game besides Allegiance - and readers responded, revealing a world of wonder and limitless amusement.

    Virgin Interactive's Subspace is a mixture of of Asteroids and Deathmatch, which I think we can all agree is probably a very good thing. Something it was not, however, is a financial success - and Virgin closed down the servers, as you might expect. Fast forward to today, where player-run servers are the norm, bizarre mods have taken shape, and the entire game has been reverse-engineered to allow access to the undercarriage. Many players invited me to give the game a shot, and I have a mind to do just that.

    I would be disappointed, yes, disappointed in you if you were not familiar with Bungie's Myth. Almost universally adored, and luscious with (then novel) 3Dfx accelerated graphics, Myth games were good in virtually every way one can reckon a tactical fantasy game. It had a beautiful interface that allowed access to a wheelbarrow full of great maps and gametypes, it was essentially the cat's pajamas. We're all aware that when Bungie became a part of Microsoft, Bungie's own multiplayer matching service would eventually become a thing of the past. Of course, this was long after I had started playing other games - so I was not aware that the community had risen to the challenge here, as well. I had heard about this more recently, when gamers displeased with the state of Myth III successfully petitioned Take-Two Interactive to gain access to the source code in order to fix the game.

    Think about that for a second.

    In any event, their legacy is real - modern, playable versions of all three Myth games, and a matchmaking service to tie it all together. It makes me want to clap.

    (CW)TB out.

    jam after jam of inaccurate songs
