Now I’m not one to shamelessly promote an product. I really have to believe in something to recommend it to friends. When it comes to gaming and gaming gadgets, I really like to show people products that really work, especially if I’m currently using them!
One of the side effects of a marathon gaming session is the dry eyes that you get from staring at a screen for hours upon hours at a time. When I was on tour with AMP Energy, it wasn’t unusual for us to be looking at television sets for hours at a time without a break for (sometimes) up to 15 hours a day. When your eyes get tired, you lose that focus, the edge that keeps you above your competition. You need something that keeps you in the zone by keeping your eyes comfortable.
Lots of new music out there this week as artists attempt to make their way on to everyone’s holiday wish list. Two releases that caught my eye (and ears) were solo/acoustic live records by Chris Cornell, lead singer of 90’s grunge pioneers Soundgarden and super group AudioSlave, and Rhett Miller, lead singer of alt-country veterans Old 97’s. Cornell’s album is a collection of his greatest hits performed acoustically with a few choice covers thrown in, while Miller’s album is all cover material. Other than that, both albums couldn’t be more different in terms of energy and impact.
