RAGE exclusive downloadable song from Mark Lanegan

I simply have to post this! On the official website of id Software’s upcoming first person shooter “RAGE”, they are offering an exclusive free downloadable song by the one and only Mark Lanegan! I beg you to visit and download it.

Lanegan is, and has been, my personal #1 artist of all time ever since I first started to discover his massive catalog of music several years ago. I get genuinely excited to see everything new he does, and to see him maintain such an original and brilliant song for a videogame reinforces what makes him the best. As a matter of fact, for those of you who’ve enjoyed the awesome introduction music to my podcasts, it’s taken from an old Screaming Trees song!

Uhh… okay, so that video isn’t representative of how great the song really is… Wait, here’s the real thing. That was back when grunge was alive. Not quite as cool as Burning Jacob’s Ladder. Okay, I’ll stop now.

Moment of clarity allows Kojima to observe “It seems Libya is in trouble”

Breaking news. I always knew Kojima had his finger on the pulse of the world, but this is the kind of insight that truly sets him apart. Kojima has said that “It seems Libya is in trouble” via his Twitter account.

Most analysts and news reporters have said that Libya is totally fine in the face of airstrikes, rebel uprisings and a desperate dictator trying to cling to power. Kojima begs to differ. Perhaps we should take a new look at the Middle East situation with this helpful new insight.

Naturally, Kojima remains a controversial public voice.
