Video Fails to Kill the Radio Star

When MTV launched in 1981, the first music video it played was “Video killed the Radio Star” by The Buggles. The intent was clear; the channel was going to kill off old-fashioned radio.

Down the years plenty of technologies have looked set to kill off radio: talking pictures, TV, the cassette tape, the CD, the iPod. Today it’s streaming music services like Spotify. All have so far failed.

Radio listening figures are holding up remarkably well given all the other sources of entertainment and information available.

What may surprise you is that there are plenty of venture capitalists betting big that good old, steam-age radio cannot just survive but thrive…

It's not an every day occurrence when you're on the homepage of a news website.

Back in March I was interviewed by James Fletcher of the BBC World News Service after he read my reaction post after the Cross Assault blow up. I’m really proud to have been part of this piece that I believe helps bring to light some of the issues that females in the gaming world face. I hope that you’ll take a minute (or 25) to listen and I’d love to hear what your thoughts are too.

Please note that there is foul language and some words that may be triggering. Check it out here.

Here are links to some of the other women featured in this documentary as well:

Tablo being interviewed by BBC News

Tablo, man, you inspire me everyday.

One of these days I’m going to figure out YG’s shop and buy your hat, too.

Why BBC World News is better than pretty much all United States' news broadcasts
  • It actually informs you of the ret of the world.
  • It still talks about America so you know what’s important here.
  • It doesn’t discriminate against countries we’re at war with.
  • More happy stories because all we’re told is how bad things are in the US.
  • Speaking directly to people involved in stories around the world rather than using American “experts” who have never actively participated in the situation.
  • Its not conservative or liberal, but truthful.
  • They had an entire segment this morning on China banning British cheese for like two weeks.

Here’s me looking a tad nervous before my interview with BBC World News presenter Julia. Was trying to focus on getting all of the pronunciations for the different dishes right.

The interview took place on the roof of their studios in Copacabana, just above the fan fest, luckily there wasn’t a game going on!

It was a really fun experience and I enjoyed sharing some of my dishes with the team.
