    Green Day lashes out at Wal-Mart

    Green Day has the most popular cd in the country but fans will not be able to buy the cd at Wal-Mart stores. Wal-Mart has refused to stock the newest cd because they demanded the album be edited for language and content. Green Day refused. “They want artists to censor their records in order to be carried in there,” he said. “We just said no. We’ve never done it before. You feel like you’re in 1953 or something.” “As with all music, it is up to the artist or label to decide if they want to market different variations of an album to sell, including a version that would remove a PA rating,” Wal-Mart spokeswoman Melissa O’Brien said. “The label and artist in this case have decided not to do so, so we unfortunately can not offer the CD.” While the album is selling well without the help of Wal-Mart

    Kojima teaser countdown goes to zero

    The countdown ran out today on the Kojima teaser site. The site then went completely down for about 10 minutes. Probably due to the mass amount of people constantly refreshing to see what is going to be revealed. The page has been replaced with a new counter set at : 119: 44:18 and counting down. That takes us to about the 26th next week. The timer doesn’t quite reach the dates of E3, which means another teaser clue before E3. It’s raining consistently now and during the Thunder where letters are revealed: 5 E 3 There is one more character but I am unable to figure it out yet. I think it may be a backwards “9″. Another hint to the announcement having something to do with Raiden is that Raiden means lightning in Japanese. Oh Kojima how you have us gamers wrapped around your little finger. Update: backwards “9″
