I was lucky enough to get in on an advance version of Westerado: Double Barreled, a remake by Ostrich Banditos of their Adult Swim browser game Westerado. I wrote all about Westerado a while back, and I have plenty to say about the differences between the remake and the original—and what the differences mean to me as a game designer, and what they mean to me in terms of game genre theory—but let’s get the most superficial facts out of the way and work from there.
Tonight I took it upon myself to archive some Dan Hicks lyrics and chords compiled by Steve Ramirez, which were previously available only at the Wayback Machine’s archive of his website. They were hard to find. I have uploaded a copy of Steve’s index and all of his files, in the hopes that other fans of Dan will be able to locate them and benefit from Steve’s work a little more easily.
(This is being posted on April 1st, but there’s nothing mischievous or insincere about it, I assure you.)
If you aren’t familiar with Dan Hicks, his Hot Licks, or their work, you are lucky to be suffering from one of those problems that are very easily fixed.
