This Week in Playlists, and Where is All the Music?

In the later days of VGRC's initial run from 2003 through 2009, one of the things I started covering a lot was music. Now that VGRC is back in business, some of you are probably wondering: Where did all the music coverage go?

It's just been moved! Lately I've taken up the handle of Music Journalist over at my personal blog, DennisWyman.com, and many of my old album reviews (including the old "90's Music Flashback" we used to run) have been moved over there, along with plenty of new content. In fact, just recently, I sent up a new recurring feature over there, "This Week In Playlists," where I talk about recent discoveries and addictions. Included in this week's roundup, is the music video for We Come Together by Goldfish, stylized as an 8-bit video game and full of references to several major Nintendo series.

In addition to our resuming regular gaming coverage, expect me to be stopping by here every so often to plug more of these music articles. See you around, kiddos!

A New Writer Approaches

It's commonly known that I'm part of the infamous, old VGRC crew. Allow me to formally introduce myself: I'm Timothy Thora, also known as Lieutenant Lollipop around the forums. I have been an active member of the community as of late '07 till now. During the aforementioned span of time I had also experienced several months of inactivity, but they were perennial -for a time VGRC gently drifted across the pond exactly the way a bowling ball wouldn't.

Check more after the jump!

We're Back, and Just What the Doctor Ordered

VGRC Promo
What's this? VGRC is evolving... and now we kick more ass than ever before. We have refocused into a professional gaming website! Why is it so different? Well, some of you may have heard of a jolly old place named Zelda Informer. No you haven't? Well you are just silly then. The fact remains that this around, VGRC is brought to you by the combined powers of Zelda Informer and the original VGRC crew. We plan to bring you some of the best news coverage in the business, along with our glorious editorial work, video content, and podcasts. We want to bring you to the edge of your seats and back again with what will one day be the best source for gaming news on the net.

Why choose us over the 8 million other options? Simple: We know what we're doing and we know what you want. We know you don't care about Barbie in Space and Water Polo - you want to hear about the games you care about, and maybe some you have never even heard of before but have caught the attention our ever watching eyes. You want trailers, you want unique video features, you want strong editorial work, and naturally you want that all followed up with strong hands on reviews and previews of some of the most talked about games on the market.

Introducing: The 90's Rock Blog

By Dennis Wyman on April 15, 2010 5:16 PM | Permalink |

The 90's Rock BlogAs some of you may have noticed by now, I've been working on a side-project of sorts, and that is 90srock.net, a.k.a. "The 90's Rock Blog." We've been doing the "90's Music Flashback" feature here at VGRC for quite some time now, and spinning off a separate site felt like a logical extension of our love for 90's music.

So what is so special about this new site? Simply put, every day we post up a couple videos of various songs from the 90's, both of the studio and live varieties, spanning all sorts of genres from Seattle grunge to alternative rock to west coast ska punk to the stoner metal of the Palm Desert. The 90's was more than the same 3 bands that get endlessly repeated on the radio, so the main goal of the blog is to help "rediscover" the decade, whether it be for the younger crowd looking to expand their musical tastes, or the older crowd looking for a nostalgia trip. Occasionally, we'll also tie in the posts there with the editorial content here at VGRC, making this more of an outgrowth of VGRC than simply another "blog."

On a more technical note, 90srock.net is powered by Tumblr, so if you are a Tumblr user, be sure to reblog our posts and spread the word!

[19:12] <capn|away> if one strangelet touches normal matter
[19:12] <capn|away> it turns it into STRANGE MATTER
[19:12] <capn|away> and starts a chain reaction that doesnt stop until the entire earth is converted into strange matter
