Friday Sacrifice Update

Today’s update covers achievements. We have the same achievements for Left 4 Dead 1 and Left 4 Dead 2. Should be interesting, which game can get a higher percentage of completed achievements? And exploding barrels?

Don’t forget the cutoff for the Midnight Rider’s Video contest is Midnight tonight PST (Friday Oct 1st). With 160 videos submitted, so many of them amazing, judging this is going to be tough. Thanks to everyone who created a video.

You can use this link to check them out. Vote thumbs up on the ones you like, it helps us see what the community is thinking.

Fletcher Dragge on Jim Lindberg’s departure from Pennywise

In a new interview, Pennywise guitarist Fletcher Dragge explained why the band and long time frontman Jim Lindberg parted ways. He explained:

We sat down with him, and the truth is, he really wanted to work on other projects. We came back with an offer. We said, ‘okay, you know what? We totally understand that. We’ll pay for a nanny for you, keep the tours at two weeks and take extra days off to rest your voice.’ We rolled out the red carpet, and that wasn’t good enough.

Basically, he said, ‘If you guys don’t want to tour and you want to do it when, how and where I want to, then we can talk about it,’ and we said, ‘No, we’re not going to talk about it anymore. We’ve been doing that, and we’ve been pissed off about it for 15 years.’ “We’re done with that. We want to step up to the plate and do what we think is right. “He planned on quitting the band, no matter what. It didn’t matter what we did.”

Real talk: The Gaslight Anthem show last night was disappointing. I should have gone to see Envy. Oh well, CT here I come.
