So Tumblr seems to be the in-thing these days with people looking for shortform multimedia based blogging options that don’t require the intricacies of WordPress or – you know – basic fucking commenting options. Always one to try new social fads a good 6-12 months after everyone else (hey, at least I managed to resist Formspring) I’ve started this one:
3 years of copyright infringement for music posts over on Citizen 16 has, touch plastic, failed to bring about a cease and desist letter so I’m pushing my luck further by dedicating an entire blog to posting the best of game soundtracks. Here’s a sample:
Quick! Name your favourite FPS soundtrack…
Okay, that didn’t work for a number of reasons; we’re not actually having a conversation, I haven’t published this yet… well, you get the logistical problems. What I can say with confidence is were it not for the Half-Life 2 series I’d be completely unable to even think of an FPS soundtrack, let alone a good one.
Followed by an attempt to get to some sort of a point.
Hopefully by the time I’m done with it there will be an impressive collection of excellent game music (and I’m taking suggestions either by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or in the comments here.) Either that or I’ll have been sued relentlessly.
