The Song for the Evening: Like many young people in the early to mid-1990s, I heard plenty of Nirvana. Like many, many, many people, I had Nevermind on CD. It may have been the first CD I owned. It was after Kurt Cobain killed himself, so I was behind the times from the get-go. No matter. It’s a landmark album. It is a pinnacle of the grunge rock and set up alternative rock as a thing. If you like this kind of music, it is a must-listen - assuming you already haven’t. I know I did. I must have listened to it hundreds of times. Instead of one of the big singles, here’s the fourth track from the album: “Breed.”
The Rules: The rules remain the rules even when the game is on and you are earnestly wanting to plant a house and build a tree. Please keep your comments clean, legal (read: no streams, no links to streams, no asking for streams, no streams), and all about the games itself. Just as importantly, let’s respect each other. There’s no need for drama or being unwelcoming of your fellow Devils fan. This is a Gamethread, let’s focus on the game. Thank you for reading. Go Devils!
