This week on the Super Circuitcast! Rami, S, and Matt talk about Dark Souls, Metal Gear Solid, and Hearthstone. Matt also attempts to talk about episodic gaming, but really, who cares? Everyone knows that we're all just here for the butt jokes, anyway.
Better keep your eyes on the number 11. At least, that's what the trailer for I Origins wants you to do. Although, honestly, eye have no idea what was going on. I suppose this movie doesn't look too bad, though, better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. At least it's something to keep your eye on. Okay, I'm done, eye swear.
Such is the buzz regarding the deep-space comedy, in which the titular station's cramped and hormonal crew find their mission complicated considerably with the arrival of the new, female assistant captain, Veronica Cor- I mean, Jessica, as played by Liv Tyler.

The 'phin' is a family of Thai folk instruments, sometimes double necked, frequently with a completely sick headstock carved into a dragon motif, frequently played with reverb and delay effects that frequently put American garage to shame.

Click through for pics and a rundown of the one-night shrine to Hollywood's favored woman-punching, baby-snatching, plastic-fanged son!

How often have you rolled your eyes when a musician said 'haha, oh you! you don't need music theory, custom-made gear, you don't even need to know how to play! all you's need is heart.' Well Half Japanese guitarist Jad Fair literally did not know how to play in 1975 ("the only chord I know is the one that connects the guitar to the amp") and while he's probably picked up an inkling or two regarding guitarism since then, at least he still writes music like he was born yesterday, in the most refreshing of ways.

It’s clear that out and out scam is not the description for the con. It’s even clear that a lot of people had a good time despite the problems.
