Trying out Rise of the Tomb Raider on GNU\Linux

Linux gaming, for me at least, has always presented problems. The initial issue is the fact that the selection of games is very slim compared with what is available on Windows computers. I was however greatly pleased this month when Rocket League was finally made available, and the smoothness is just as smooth as on…

Hazy (A Desert Opera) by Roslyn Moore

Like people who remember where they were when JFK was killed, or Princess Diana, I remember exactly where and when I first heard Hazy (A Desert Opera) by Roslyn Moore.

Click by LOCK

LOCK remind me a little bit of Say Lou Lou with this song. The London-based duo have such an interesting, strong sound and I really can’t wait for a full-length album by them. I have just read how they have an E.P launch next week as well as having written most of their debut album….
