Dead Island’s “Feminist Whore”: The Tip of the Iceberg
I’m being very brave posting this, when I could write ten times as much and not cover all the things you need to know.

Actually, the end of the week is a bit frightening, as I naturally haven’t achieved as many things as I hope to, and there’s hardly any time left to do them in. I’m probably going to be two thirds of the way to Tokyo before I’m halfway organised.

I’m pretty excited about going to the TGS, not just because I’m a bit romantic about Japan and am keen to check it out myself, but also because it’s the first really big event coverage I’ve done where I’ve had free reign to produce as much content as I want – as opposed to having a freelance budget for a handful of articles, and have to pick and choose. I’m hoping to be able to deliver some really good stuff for you, my darlings.

Plus, post-TGS I’m taking a week’s holiday with the other half in Nara. My plans are pretty much all onsen, all the time. Baths forever!

Today’s header image is Everclear. Between the ages of eleven and sixteen they were kind of my favourite band, although the line up pictured here is vastly different from that of the time. They still have that core sound but it’s run through so much production now. In some ways that’s a good thing because, let’s face it, some of their songs sound pretty much identical. Generally the ones that sell best you shallow consumers.

Here’s todays headlines. Behind them you’ll find Steph’s, and further back, Johnny’s. Mr Cullen will be along shortly to deliver the Bulletcast.
