Webgame Wednesday. Dune II: The Building of a Dynasty

By Devin D. O’Leary [ Wed Jan 2 2013 1:05 PM ]

There's been a movement lately toward posting older, what we call "orphan" games online. (Take, for example, a prime Webgame Wednesday pick from last year, the 20th anniversary release of Wolfenstein 3D. We here at Webgame Wednesday couldn't be happier with this nostalgic gaming trend. So we're super stoked that somebody has ported Dune II: The Building of a Dynasty to the Internet. This pioneering real time strategy game was released in 1992. It more that set the stage for current RTS hits like Starcraft II. Choose your House (Atredies, Ordos or Harkonnen), mine the spice, make money, spend it on troops, power plants, weapons of war, etc. Then get out there and take over the planet, RISK-style. After all, the spice must flow!

Specter of sonic sexism looms

By Samantha Anne Carrillo [ Tue Nov 27 2012 1:15 PM ]

Sexism in the music industry is alive and well. But it’s almost 2013, you might say. We’re more than a half-century removed from the height of ’50s paternalism. Sadly, we’re not quite as distanced from the weaker-sex mentality as we’d like to think. Whether exploring industrial music, producing or music-related subcultures, misogyny still patiently waits to be acknowledged and abolished. We chatted with Burqueña noisemakers and aural curators about their experiences with sexism in our burg. Read all about it in Burqueñas Talk Musical Misogyny.

Manilow

It is magic

By Clifford Grindstaff
This Saturday, Sandia Casino will host Barry Manilow. Instead of clinging, Barry still rides the crest of his prowess and fame. His accomplishments are many and varied, even compared to some of the top creative artists in the music world. He retains standing gigs at Vegas hotels. He doesn't really need this. You should be thankful.

An academic mix

By Jessica Cassyle Carr [ Sat Sep 3 2011 10:00 AM ]

Autumn is nigh, and with the turning season come books and classrooms and new ideas and pocket protectors. Much music on the topic of school has to do with the rebellion against it, lust, alienation or nostalgia. Linked below is a seasonal mix—most of the rock and roll or punk persuasion (sorry, no Van Halen)—to put you in the mood for education, be your participation willing or begrudging. Listen/watch here.
