Misophonia: A Serious Medical Condition

Posted: Friday, January 18, 2013 by Dylan Benson in Labels:

No one likes the sound of nails on a chalkboard right?  It makes you cringe, cover your ears, and ask why someone did that.  Now what if you feel even worse than that every day, but to an extensive amount of day to day sounds?  What if you become angry, get headaches, cry, or slam your head into the wall saying “make these sounds go away”?  While this may sound like a crazy person, it’s actually a disorder called misophonia.

Now, I am not a medical professional, so take this only as information and not medical advice.  Misophonia is literally, “the hatred of sound”.  And no, I did not make this up.  People with misophonia can become enraged by a simple auditory trigger.  These “triggers” are things we all hear in our day to day lives: texting, chewing, pen tapping, laughing, and the like.  When people with misophonia hear these triggers, they cannot help the feelings of anger, emotional distress, and/or anxiety they feel.

Medal of Honor: Warfighter Audio Review

Posted: Monday, January 7, 2013 by Dylan Benson in Labels: , , ,

Let me start off by saying that I have been a die-hard Medal of Honor fan since the first game hit the shelves for the PlayStation in 1999.  Then Rising Sun came along and things changed.  Let’s not get into that because I have still played and loved every game in some way.  There is no difference for Warfighter.  This is one of the most visually stunning and auditory pleasing games I have played in some time.
