Ever since music games became popular, the musician trolls have frequented forums and comment threads everywhere.

Gasp at the ancient picture of The Smashing Pumpkins above. Go ahead, gasp already. This week the Rock Band downloadable content brings us the song Siva, which hails from way back when The Smashing Pumpkins actually looked like this.

This one was the winner for today's Moviewatch for a few good reasons: it opens with a shot of the new Ritual of Refreshment spell graphic, it only shows part of the zone leaving some surprises for your adventuring and it ...
