Over a year ago I gave $10 to a Kickstarter game called Rex Rocket. On August 5th, this game is going to be released. And much depression is felt, because I do not have a proper computer to play it at this time. I can certainly download my DRM-free copy and tuck it away for a future date, but the urge to play it now cannot be sated. Perhaps you could play it and tell me how awesome it is? With plenty of 8-Bit 2D shooting platform goodness buffeted with the music of Saskrotch, how can it not? Be there when the game drops!

August 5th, 2014. Across the world, the Internet, and in your minds. That is the release date of Future Pop Revolution, the first official album Joey Broyles will be released. This album (or intended to be released versions of it) has been delayed for about as long as Joey has been promoting it…which feels like forever! Which is why I’m damn glad to see this coming about. To appreciate the music that’s about to be released, how about pre-gaming with Joey’s SoundCloud, ReverbNation, Broadjam, or wherever his music can be found. The Revolution is almost upon us.
UPDATE: Apparently there is yet another delay. The album will now be released on September 2nd. Deep breathes. The wait will make the release that more intense. And if you need a little more tease, there is still a musical gathering of the intended release held at Funk’s Pub.
Music is a skill that deserves and needs to be taught to the world. Not overly commercialized jargon which is made to sell other products, but music that entertains and makes our mind grow in ways it otherwise couldn’t. Such is the power of sound! So seeing something like Lyre Power makes me smile. It lays claim to being the first and only youth program in Madison to focus on music composition and improvisation with an emphasis on experimentalism. An impressive claim, unless of course they are a lyre…ha. Ha. HA! Continue reading
You know how La Fête de Marquette snuck up on me? This did as well: a Crochet-a-thon is happening July 17, aka a yarn bombing. Kinda. A student is finishing up their thesis, which involves, “designing a structure and integrating a weaving aspect,” to quote the writing. People will be gathering together at The Bodgery (which I also just found out about) to gather together materials and even knit/crochet/etc. on site, which will then be donated for the final project. Much as I dislike it, I have no time to research this and share in full on who all the players are and the history. All I have time for is to tell you to go. Go there to learn! Go there to be a cheerleader! Go there to appreciate delicious rainbows!
