Dead Island trailer

Now, I don’t really talk about video games here on The Black Laser not because I have some particular disdain for them, but because, for some reason, talking about them makes me feel on the wrong side of too dorky. In fact, I quite like them (Fallout, I love you) even if they make me feel stupidly unproductive. I suppose that video games are sort of my secret shame, which, in the grand scheme of life, the universe, and everything, is a pretty benign (and banal) secret shame.

Anyway, I don’t know anything about this game Dead Island, but I liked the recently released trailer so much that I had to share. Zombies are a little played out these days, yet this trailer feels fresh. It’s a great piece of work.

The Amen Break

This is a fascinating video on the history of electronic music’s most recognizable sample. It’s about 20 minutes long, but you don’t need to watch it. Just start it and let it play in the background while you listen. It’s pretty cool.
