Weird But Hypnotising Vocaloid Spoof

I can’t stop watching this, the YouTube video describes this as “The Most Disturbing Anime Video Ever” it’s not disturbing at all though, it’s a spoof on the “Vocaloid” genre of music popular in Japan.

On a side note here is Nyan Cat in Project Diva a Vocaloid Rhythm Game for the PS Vita…

16 Bit Abbey: ‘Downton Abbey’ as a Super Nintendo game

‘Downton Abbey’ as a Super Nintendo game

Chip tune artist Bill Kiley has not only re-imagined the music from Downton Abbey as a chip tune but has also created a video of what Downton Abbey would have looked like if it had been released as a SNES game. The song is available from his bandcamp page you can name your price for it (Enter 0 if you want it free and don’t want to support struggling artists).

I can totally see a game like being a hit if done in the style of Maniac Mansion

If this isn’t stuck in your head by the time you finish listening to it you have no soul. Dumb Ways to Die is by Tangerine Kitty and is used in an Australian PSA to tell people not to get run over by trains…

It’s sooooooooooooooo cute!

Gangnam Style Lyrics

So I looked up the lyrics to Gangnam style on K-Pop Lyrics and they are mental… If you’ve not seen the video then watch it above, it’s awesome!

Oppa is Gangnam style
Gangnam style

A girl who is warm and humanle during the day
A classy girl who know how to enjoy the freedom of a cup of coffee
A girl whose heart gets hotter when night comes
A girl with that kind of twist

I’m a guy
A guy who is as warm as you during the day
A guy who one-shots his coffee before it even cools down
A guy whose heart bursts when night comes
That kind of guy

Beautiful, loveable
Yes you, hey, yes you, hey
Beautiful, loveable
Yes you, hey, yes you, hey
Now let’s go until the end

Oppa is Gangnam style, Gangnam style
Oppa is Gangnam style, Gangnam style
Oppa is Gangnam style

Eh- Sexy Lady, Oppa is Gangnam style
Eh- Sexy Lady oh oh oh oh

A girl who looks quiet but plays when she plays
A girl who puts her hair down when the right time comes
A girl who covers herself but is more sexy than a girl who bares it all
A sensable girl like that

I’m a guy
A guy who seems calm but plays when he plays
A guy who goes completely crazy when the right time comes
A guy who has bulging ideas rather than muscles
That kind of guy

Beautiful, loveable
Yes you, hey, yes you, hey
Beautiful, loveable
Yes you, hey, yes you, hey
Now let’s go until the end

Oppa is Gangnam style, Gangnam style
Oppa is Gangnam style, Gangnam style
Oppa is Gangnam style

Eh- Sexy Lady, Oppa is Gangnam style
Eh- Sexy Lady oh oh oh oh

On top of the running man is the flying man, baby baby
I’m a man who knows a thing or two
On top of the running man is the flying man, baby baby
I’m a man who knows a thing or two

You know what I’m saying
Oppa is Gangnam style

Eh- Sexy Lady, Oppa is Gangnam style
Eh- Sexy Lady oh oh oh oh

A Ditty Thanking Internet Trolls For Their Hard Work And Due Diligence

Anyone who has ever posted anything online has met the internet troll, that lovely creature that passes judgement on your hard word with scathing words. These people are the highest caliber of internet users, they do no wrong and everyone else is inferior. Their sole creative output may be an incomprehensible stream of insults, but lets be fair abusing the English language with the mastery that they possess takes years of dedication.

I don’t know if this song by Isabel Fay is in response to a particular troll or dedicated to trolls everywhere, but it’s quite amusing…

I expect a stream of insulting comments questioning my sexuality and wishing chronic diseases on me, but I expect that wont happen…

Fujiya & Miyagi – Sore Thumb Vector Graphics Music Video

I found a GIF of prt this video while browsing Tumblr yesterday, so I had to look it up. While the music isn’t my cup of tea, I like the vector graphics feel of the video, it really reminds me of the hours I spent Playing Spectre VR as a kid on my Pizza Box Mac LC II.

In case you don’t know what I’m talking about here is a 20 minute video of someone else playing Spectre VR:

Garbage: “Not Your Kind of People” Initial Impressions

I’m going to say this now before anyone points this out, I am conscious that this post is going to reek of “it’s not as good as it used to be” and “anything new is rubbish”, I’m not a music blogger, I don’t want to be a music blogger, in fact I’m probably rubbish at blogging about music in general but this is something that I wanted to blog about and if you don’t want to read it well… Just don’t.

I bought the new Garbage album today, I’d listened to a couple of the tracks on YouTube and my impression was they sounded okay, but there was something wrong with them that I couldn’t put my finger on. I’ve now listened to the whole album twice in the background while working and I think I’ve realized what the problem is.

I don’t think I could have listened to any of the previous Garbage albums for the first time in the background. Shirley Manson’s voice exudes so much power and (for want of a better word) sex that you are drawn into it, or at least it did…

There are hints of that power in some of the songs, “Battle in Me” for example has it’s moments and, but it never quite reaches the intensity of their previous albums. “Man on a Wire” Is, I think, one of the closest songs to their old levels of intensity but it’s still only a 10 when to be honest I expect Garbage to have turned it up to 11. This album is Garbage by numbers it’s unmistakably Garbage (the band obviously not refuse) and it’s not half bad, but it’s what to me makes Garbage not just another band and that makes me sad.

Note as I’ve been listening to it in the background I’ve not been listening to lyrics, which I probably should have, Garbage normally have quite evocative lyrics, but to me Garbage are about the music and Shirley Manson’s voice. Mostly Shirley Manson’s voice actually, and what’s wrong with this album is Shirley seems to be phoning in her voice, it’s beautiful but like I said before it’s jut missing that extra level of sex.

I have no doubt that this album will grow on me, but it should’t have to… At this point I should probably make some kind of joke about this album being “Not My Kind of Garbage” but to be honest I can’t be bothered. I’m not angry, I’m just a little disappointed.
