Howdy folks! Does it feel like Christmas was only five minutes ago? How did it get to be February 9th? If you’re a regular reader of mxdwn, you know we cover a vast array of things. Yes, the world of music, movies, video games and television all collide here in an orgy of sonic and visual stimulus. Every corner of media is announcing everything all at once. Imagine a Flaming Lips concert where each attendee is handed a glow stick and is told to throw them all up in the air at once. That’s about what’s happening right now in the PR and marketing departments of every media creation outlet there is: be it record labels, networks, video game makers or movie studios. Like everyone just said, “Hey! I got an idea. Let’s throw everything up in the air all at once!” Sweet. Never fear intrepid consumers, mxdwn is here for you. For your ease and simplicity here are the ten best things that happened this week.
