  1. http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/abu-bakr-al-baghdadi-dead-isis-leader-russia-raqqa-air-strike-killed-syria-islamic-state-chief-a7792801.html Russia claiming they have killed ISIS leader Al Baghdadi
  2. I'm surprised by the negative reaction of the Sony conference, I thought it was great. Skyrim in VR is fucking awesome
  3. Anthem looks incredible. At the same time, I'm trying not to get too excited - It looked like a scripted part of the game, so I'm cautiously optimistic.
  4. Was that a new Dishonored game or was it a DLC? I was confused by it, but only caught it mid-way through.
  5. Eh, critics and many media sites that do reviews certainly did get caught up in the controversy of Ghostbusters. I didn't really get involved with that, but I did focus on some of the behind the scenes stuff. It was a disaster from the beginning, essentially went from a "Female avengers" Super Hero movie to them then hijacking Ghostbusters once that fell through. Then there were some demands by the director, and he didn't really help the entire fiasco on Twitter. Also, reportedly, Melissa McCarthy was a nightmare onset. Attaching the movie to the Hillary campaign was a horrible move as well. As for the critics - seems they were lukewarm on the movie. 70% positive reviews, with an average of 6.5/10. So, I don't think any of them were trying to get back at the "haters". I do think all the controversy and buildup was all for a film everyone would forget about moments after leaving the theater.
  6. https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/wonder_woman_2017/ Wonder Woman, thus far, is getting great reviews. 43 fresh, 2 negative. Average rating 7.8/10 Happy for DC. The word I'm seeing in most of the reviews is "fun", which is what the DC films needed.
  7. Yeah, best thing to come out of this is all the interesting covers I've heard. Saw Live cover "I am the highway" - that was cool.
  8. I think it leaned a little too much on the pop side for me, with the subject matter that was tackled, I wish there were more tracks with Shinoda rapping. Has some good songs here and there. Not bad by any means though.
  9. Not to keep dragging this on, because either way it's tragic that he's gone - but I got interested in how common this is with benzos. The kind it is claimed he took, I found this http://www.ehealthme.com/ds/ativan/suicidal thoughts/ Time on Ativan when people have Suicidal Thoughts *: < 1 month: 34.48 % 1 - 6 months: 31.03 % 6 - 12 months: 12.07 % 1 - 2 years: 8.62 % 2 - 5 years: 1.72 % 5 - 10 years: 6.9 % 10+ years: 5.17 % Age of people who have Suicidal Thoughts when taking Ativan *: 0-1: 0.42 % 2-9: 0.0 % 10-19: 8.64 % 20-29: 11.06 % 30-39: 21.18 % 40-49: 24.24 % 50-59: 20.97 % 60+: 13.49 % While it doesn't look entirely too common that these things cause suicidal thoughts, let alone suicide, it certainly isn't out of the realm of possibility that it could have triggered suicidal thoughts in him.
  10. Was reading not too long ago where they talked about creative minds and the link to mental illness. Writers and painters often suffer depression, but musicians it was unique and even higher. It does make me wonder if heavy touring plays a part in it, especially today. Non-stop on the road, lack of sleep, being away from friends and family for a long period of time; I'm can only imagine this is quite stressful. Though, I wonder how other traveling jobs hold up when it comes to depression and suicide, or maybe the creative mind and mental illness connection is the main factor in this and the heavy touring just pushes musicians to the breaking point.
  11. I still think Down on the Upside is a really underappreciated album that lives in the shadow of the iconic Superunknown. Been jamming to Blow up the Outside World all morning. The way it lulls into the chorus is so good, and his voice is otherworldly in it.
  12. From what is being reported by many now, sounds like it was possibly a suicide.
  13. Also, hands down, he did the best Bond opening. So good.
  14. I just read about this. Out of all the grunge bands, Soundgarden was always my favorite due to his vocals. This one hurts.
