I hope everyone is ready for my version of a weekly wrap-up blog post. I will be showcasing news articles and opinion pieces, the best beers I’ve enjoyed, media I’ve consumed, some of the best bargains available. I hope you all enjoy this as much as I hope to. I know I had a lot of fun putting this first one together. I plan on getting this post up every Friday or Saturday. Haven’t settled in on which day is best yet, so don’t be surprised if it bounces around for a couple weeks. As this is my first post, I might include a couple things from a week or two prior if I deem them important enough. So let’s kick off this first ever weekly wrap-up post!
- Funny how I was thinking (while in the shower) about the Korean Music Industry keeping music shows going while the US has failed, and then I find out Billboard wrote an article similar to my thoughts about it the same day.
- Matthew Newman thinks it’s time to stop bashing people for what they like, and just Let People Enjoy Things.
- Something I’ve always hated was my own voice, even though I’ve recorded podcasts and stream games online.The worst part always being having to edit and hearing my voice played back to me. I’m obviously not alone, as Lauren Orsini talks about what it is like to be scared of something, and do it anyway.
- It’s October, which means Halloween very soon, so book lovers should check out The YA Shelf‘s list of Thrilling and spooky books to read for Halloween 2017.
- The Great American Beer Fest just happened this past weekend, so PorchDrinking has a breakdown of all the winners and awards.
- The one issue I’ve had with my Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana play-through has been a bland and sometimes lazy English translation, but NISA is apologizing and promising fixes in November.
- *UPDATE WITH NEW ARTICLE* Right after I took this live, it was reported Humble Bundle was acquired by IGN. Too big of news to not include.
