Aeon’s End: Legacy – Part 5

Our suspicions that our campaign characters were too overpowered held true. We did a test battle against the Fungal Mesh, to reclaim some dignity after our frustrating losses to that particular nemesis during the campaign. We easily demolished the Fungal Mesh, ending the battle with practically all of our hit points and Gravehold nearly maxed […]

New Deafheaven Single

In addition to posting some cryptic photos of themselves back in the studio, Deafheaven dropped a new single today titled “Black Brick.” As noted on the Bandcamp page for the single, this track is a B-side from the recording sessions for the band’s most recent full-length album, Ordinary Corrupt Human Love (review) that was deemed ‘too heavy’ to […]

Matt Hughes Served With Restraining Orders From Wife And Brother

While I have never been a fan of Matt Hughes, even after his truck was hit by a train, but the recent developments surrounding the former UFC welterweight champion are rather disturbing. According to Bloody Elbow, reporting on information initially released by TMZ, Hughes was served with a restraining order from both his wife and […]

Site Ramblings

As always, I have a bunch of things in the works for the main Shack site. My time gets spent in waves, and I’ve had a number of projects simmering for years now — and I don’t know if that will change much in the near future. After finding some old reviews from when the […]

New Lil Pump Album

While I’ve not been blown away by any of Lil Pump‘s recent singles, I’m still going to be checking out his forthcoming new album, Harverd Dropout, which releases tomorrow. So far, my main criticism is the new material makes him sound a lot more like a generic mainstream rapper than the goofy, dumb kid that put out […]

Aeon’s End: Legacy – Part 4

We were able to complete the campaign this evening. After a brief stumble against the Fungal Mesh, we absolutely steamrolled through the remainder of the campaign. The combination of our characters becoming more powerful than the standard issue mages certainly helped, although the fights weren’t a total joke. We figured our an excellent strategy and […]

New Unreqvited EP

A little outside the project’s usual fare, Unreqvited released an ambient EP titled Rain. As far as ambient releases go, it’s quite good; a calm, mellow listen that fades easily into the background. For $4 USD, it’s not a bad price; I have not bought it yet, but will almost certainly do so as I […]

Cain Wasn’t Able

Well, UFC On ESPN 1 was pretty good. As planned, I made it home in time to catch the whole main card. I was also able to catch all the fights I missed thanks to an effectively nonexistent delay in the fights being added to Fight Pass. As such, I was able to update the Fight Notes […]

Busy Weekend

I tend to keep my Sundays totally free, and don’t do much on them except maybe pay a visit to my folks — and get in a few games of Magic: The Gathering with my mom. This week, I had a family birthday to attend and will end up missing most of the UFC On ESPN 1 […]
