    This is a well written statement, although I do think you shouldn't keep saying "many of you" and "some of you" when only one person was making negative statements. Everyone else was defending the Kickstarter. And to be fair to the guilty party, he's a child and not mature enough to understand what he's talking about.
    Not trying to take anything away from what you've said. It was well said and needed to be. I'm sorry for your loss.

    Unfortunately I can't afford a Switch at the moment, so I guess I'll be holding out for now.  I am curious if Nintendo will do any bundling during the holidays.
    I'll also say that I think it's a brilliant and savvy move for Nintendo to court indie developers to fill in the gaps in their lineup. Indie developers are raving about how easy the Switch is to develop for and since Nintendo can't rely on a steady flow of third-party titles from major publishers, this is the most logical move.

    Or maybe they thought the song was a good fit and deserved a time to shine.

    Actually, the track was going to be just Chester and then Zane Lowe interviewed Kiiara, found out Linkin Park is one of her favorite bands, recommended to Mike he meet with her, and the rest is history.

    I disagree about the last album feeling forced as there's a lot I like on that album and I feel like Linkin Park was not just actively trying to make a heavy album but one that incorporated elements from their peers rather than simply being a retread of their earlier work. I think that's why the guest spots work so well, because there are elements of those bands in the final product. The Daron track had elements of SOAD, the Page track sounded a little bit Helmet, there's the politics of Rage and SOAD peppered throughout, there's metal and punk bits... it's almost a love letter to heavy music.

    They are all out to get Trump and bring him down. I don't see how he survives this massive, relentless onslaught. All he has on his side are his supporters.

    So, I'm going to be frank. This has gone completely off the rails and I'm not going to pretend I'll be getting it together for real this time. However, I can say that my laptop is finally being worked on and will hopefully be back to me within a couple weeks, and at that point I promise to get this rolling again. I know that not maintaining regular intervals is hurting participation, so just know that it'll be back to business soon. As it is now, I just make a new thread when I can remember to when I'm at a computer, and just because of that I've made this half-assed thread on my phone.

    personally this looks like it's gonna be bad based on those clips

    Wait, Avenged Sevenfold is playing? Blegh. Unsubscribe. 
  12. pen received reputation from Lucas in Incubus is making an album   
    Well I assume that this new album is the result of that. When they were working on Side B they were talking about promoting it to a full blown album and now here we are.

    So this song is really good and actually pretty relevant to the current climate. Good on Nickelback, even if the video reminds me slightly of Enter Shikari's video for Torn Apart.

    I have to compliment Linkin Park on left-turning on the guest stars they have on their albums.

    This article scares me. I am deeply concerned that we aren't even a month into his presidency and I'm already concerned he is going to destroy all of our alliances.

    I think his point is that it's a stupid argument, not to make the argument work.

    I don't care.

    It's tough to take this country seriously.

    Makes Me Sick drops on April 28th via Hopeless. AI, this one's for you.

    First single "Happy Being Miserable" will drop on February 16th.
    "Lyrically, this album looks at our culture and where we’re at—even in ourselves. We live in a place where people, ourselves included, spend so much time pointing the finger at others. They point at everything else they want to fix with the world, but they never really point at themselves. This album is more vulnerable, but it’s a different kind of vulnerability and honesty than our other records. Musically, we’ve found this sort of freedom because of our fans and their loyalty to us over the years. We use this juxtaposition between our most accountable lyrics and our most fun music." - Chad Gilbert

    That's not the same thing as what Pen is saying.
    Pen is saying if they create all brand new assets then it's not a remaster. A remaster takes the existing assets and pretties them up. A remake creates all new assets from scratch.
