  1. It seems to be that the ending of that episode was very anticlimactic and made much of the character buildup relating to John Snow and Danny, pointless. I makes so sense to me to have all of the character building (ice & fire) over the past 8 years for it to end that way. Arya was about revenge for her family against the conspiracy started by Littlefinger, her story did not involve the Night King. Thats how I see it.
  2. When I read the books, her chapters were my faviourite. I was always hoping the next chapter would be her!

    My sister-in-law Jessica Allossery (who is a musician) put together a tribute video for my son, featuring her new single "Happy Place" at the 10:38 mark.
  4. I don't understand why he's letting one heckler ruin the show and not just ignoring them. One person out of.. how many? I guess I understand, but still... one person.
  5. Have been playing StarCraft Re-mastered over the past 3 weeks. They did a good job re-mastering it while maintaining the original "feel". Also playing Resident Evil 4 HD. Really was a well made game and still looks decent on a modern PC.
  6. I hear you. For me, when I hear an album like Underdogs, I got used to the nuance, the way he sung the songs, the emotion, the *umph*. You appreciate it like fine art. Its hard to hear it sung differently however its also cool to hear it sung a different way. That's why Live is so great. You get something new each time. Also, when you're touring like that, you probably lose your voice a lot and you need to pick and choose your battles (ie; decide which songs you're give your all too). All in all Matt is an awesome performer and it sounds like his voice is top shelf for this tour. Right on!!!
  7. Listening to primetime, sounds like he's either struggling to hit high notes or just doesn't want to go for it. Either way though, nicely done.

    We had a celebration of life gathering for him on Wednesday. The whole community, friends, co-workers and family came out. Hundreds of people came and went. It was nice. Here is the Eulogy and speech I wrote for him (forgive the grammar mistakes): Henry was my only son. I wasn’t as close to him as he was with his mother. We didn’t have the same kind of relationship. However, I could see as he was getting older, that he was starting to show interest in spending time with me. Just a few weeks ago I began teaching him how to play Chess. He loved it, and I could see it was something he could accel at. We did spend lots of time together, over the years, playing video games, watching movies, going to the Sault etc; but he had his own interests, and he had his own routine that he liked to follow. I took him fishing for the first time the summer before last. He really enjoyed that, (we went a few times) and he would often ask me when we were going to go again. “Next summer son...” I told him. He was really looking forward to it, and so was I. It’s only been over the past year that I’ve really come to understand my son. Why he liked the things he liked, why he did the things he did, the way he did them, and how he did them. I was hard on him for a long time. I wanted my son to be a responsible adult when he grew up and I had high standards for discipline and behavior. But most importantly, I wanted my son to know that Jesus was his Lord and Savior. It was often a struggle for me, to communicate with my son. My wife understood him better than I, and tried very hard to help me understand him. I was bull headed and stubborn and it took a long time. I wasn’t good at bending. Eventually though, I came to understand him better, but I give my wife all of the credit. Henry’s death was very sudden and unexpected. His illness came out of nowhere. My wife stayed with him the whole time, keeping his spirits up, encouraging him and keeping him from being afraid. She stayed with him until the very end. She was strong for him. I will always remember that for the rest of my life. There was a point during this process where Henry asked my wife “Mom, am I going to die?” and she responded “You might die, but the doctors are going to do everything they can to make sure it doesn’t happen, but if you do, you know where you are going, so you don’t have to be afraid." Psalm 139:13-16 says “For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” See.. God knew what Henry was going to be like before he was born. God knew what kind of mother and father he needed to help him through life and death. God chose my wife and I to be his parents, and we were very blessed. God laid everything out before us and took care of us. He took care of Henry and our family during this most difficult of times, and he continues too. Henry knew where he was going. I take great comfort in knowing that the last face he saw before going to sleep was his mother, and the next face he saw was Jesus Christ. I want to thank everyone for their support over the past few weeks. We are very grateful for everything everyone has done for us and for the prayers. We know you loved our Henry. Most importantly, I want to thank God for helping us, for being there for my only son Henry. He knows how I feel, because he lost a son once too.
  9. It's Northern Ontario. People here like their alcohol and cigarettes. As I said on Twitter, we're hardy folk lol.
  10. Thank you, it didn't work out though, I'll have to sit this tour out. It's nice distraction to read the reviews though. Thanks for posting guys.

    Here's some photo's of him throughout his childhood. Oh yes and I forgot to mention... when Chaotic Neutral came out and I listened to it in the Van, he loved "Army of Lions" and would ask me to play it if I was listening to Matthew Good while driving. So now that song will always remind of him.

    My son died yesterday. I got to be with him when he was palliative. He was 9, his name was Henry. Poor guy had brain cancer. It all happened in a span of 3 days. He was a sweet boy.
  13. Hi guys, I was hoping to attend Matt's show in London and maybe meet some people, unfortunately my son is at sick kids in TO so I won't be able to make it. Take care guys, enjoy the tour.
  14. Just finished Claire A scenario in Resident evil 2 remake. The game is perfect!
  15. Though I would agree with you for the most part, I am still partial to Dragon Age Origins. It was epic, the music was top notch, they spent 5-10 years on it, it really was a labour of love. I still think Origins is the best.
  16. Well guys sad news, Travelers has been cancelled. It was good while it lasted.
  17. Lol I bet if you go through this with a fine tooth comb, you can throw a few albums together. "Matt Good fans hate most of his work" lol lol.... I kid.
  18. I love "The Inescapable Us", that would be awesome. I use the intro as my cellphone notification sound.
  19. I don't think it did. If I remember correctly, MGB had an official site that may have linked to RFH.net and then the Metro after that. The MGB site itself never had one. This board was around, around the time of Metro and I think it gained more members once Metro shut down. Again, I'm not 100% certain here but if memory serves, this is what happened. Please anyone feel free to correct me. It was a bit of wild west I guess but there were moderators and such but we were the first generation that was able to interact with each other the way we did. Matt involving himself was a bonus.
  20. I was a member of that board which eventually became the "Metro" on another site. It was a pretty toxic and cliquey place near the end. Lots of people on there were assholes. Though it makes sense since most of them were 17-23 years old. I remember some people purposefully trying to egg Matt on into an argument. That was kind of funny to be honest now that I look back on it.
  21. I think Matt and Rich showed up for some kind of Much Music special/interview around that time. I can't remember exactly. Only something about Matt saying something about wanting to use the bathroom during the interview. Although I could be thinking of someone else entirely.
  22. I've never seen 12 Monkeys. This show is actually really good. It's one of the best sci-fi shows out there right now, in my opinion. The actors all do a great job.
  23. There seems to be posts missing from this topic so some of my reply's are strange... weird.
  24. There is a Sci-fi on Netflix made by Brad Wright (See Stargate SG1) called Travelers. If you haven't seen it, I suggest you do. Very fresh, very well done. Filmed in Canada with lots of Canadian talent. Best TV discovery I made in 2018. The show just released it's 3rd season. Basic concept is this: (No Spoilers) In the future, mankind lives in underground shelters barely scrounging to make a living. Scientists developed technology to send people back in time, permanently occupying the bodies of people who are supposed to die, just prior to their deaths. Their mission, to change history and prevent the dystopia from happening.
