New Look For 2006!

Raze had a big suprise up his sleeve for everyone this Holiday season. He was secretly working on a new theme for the site. Check that baby out! Woohoo! Hold down ctrl and click refresh a few times. Watch the header change. How cool is that?!?!?!?

All I can say is Raze is da Man!

On a side note, you may have noticed some problems reaching the site lately. One in particular said exceeded bandwidth. Well, ummm, thats not true. You see, we have our own server and plenty of bandwidth, but yours truley made a slight mistake on the set up for this website. Needless to say, it has been corrected.

Another issue recently was the inability to reach the site. Once again, the shame is all mine to bare. We were running on an older database version and I upgraded us to help speed up the site. I did that yesterday and everything ran fine through the night. However, today all hell broke loose and the problems starting appearing. Needless to say, with the help of David the SysAdmin where we host our server, everything has been restored back to normal. The upgrades are all in place and I promise to stop tinkering with the server. At least for another year. 😉

Hope you enjoy the increased speed and the awesome new look. Heres to the start of a great new year!

Server Downtime

You may be wondering why our website has been unavailable for the last day or so. Unfortunately, the server we were on decided to have a massive Raid meltdown. Given two choices of restoring the backup or trying to rebuild the massive Raid system, we chose to go with yesterdays backup.

Some forums posts will be missing and the review I spent two hours on yesterday is also gone. That will teach me to make a local copy. Everything should be back to normal.

Forum Problems?

Official House Band Announcement!

For me, music is an important part of my life. I can still remember being 14, staying over at a buddies house as he plays Motley Crue, Theatre of Pain in a continuous loop. It was the moment my whole musical world opened up. I didnt like it at first, but as the night wore on, it grew on me. Soon after, Motley Crues, Girls Girls Girls came out and I had it the first day. From there my metal head roots were established. I was turned on to bands like Anthrax, Metallica and Suicidal Tendencies and even harder bands like Death Angel.

Slide forward 3 years and Im working at the local Mall music store. Still the same metal head, but once again my music life was about to change. I was the low man on the totem pole, so I didnt get to pick the music we played in the store. That benefit went to the 2 older, openly gay (their words, not mine) guys. Before you start making comments about “my experience” with these 2 guys, remember this post is about the music. They opened up my eyes to bands like Depeche Mode, Erasure, Pet Shop Boys, early Electronica Ministry (as opposed to todays Heavier Ministry) and even harder Industrial bands like Nitzer Ebb and Front 242. This metal head was changed once again.

That brings me to where I am today. The fusion of two sounds of music, Metal and Electronica. It is also my inspiration for the First Person Shooter sound of the Gamers Radio Station and my selection of bands like Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson, Rammstein, Slipknot and Disturbed as core artists. Maybe the station will make more sense now that you understand my musical background.

As you may know, we have been working hard to launch our two podcast shows, Gamers Radio Podcast and Rock Bone Radio. Every show needs a sound, music that invokes an emotion, a feeling of what the show is about. This brings me to the announcement of the Official Gamers Radio house band. For me, this band is a fusion of the two musical genres that influenced my teenager years and ultimately my love of music.

We are proud to announce the Official House Band of Gamers Radio is Ghost In The Machine from Wisconsin. This trio hit upon the soundtrack I had in my mind for our Radio Station and Podcasts. After sending them an email asking if they would be interested in being our Houseband, we knew we had the right band. Not only were these guys glad to work with us, they sent us 20 copies of their last two albums to give aways as part of our Prize Packs for our Podcasts.

So drop by their website, read all about them and check out their music. I know you will be hearing more of it soon!
