Rogue (fuck yeah!) #7

When I picked up my first X-Men comic back in the 80s, I quickly realized one thing: Rogue is bloody awesome. It is truth. It is law. Every Wednesday I will share with you a moment, a panel, a scene, that proves it. Because: Rogue. FUCK YEAH.

Rock Band DLC, Week of 5 April 2011

It occurs that I’m starting to loop on the dates, so year inclusion going forward. It turns out that this DLC was uncovered last week so no surprises for me. No surprises, but very pleased. It’s a relatively small week of singles, but they’re really good singles.   – Grand Funk Railroad – “The Loco-Motion” – Grand Funk Railroad – “We’re an American Band” + – J. Geils Band – “Freeze-Frame” + – Joy Division […]
