My Obscure Bands of the Week

I've been music hunting again. I found some more indie gems worth checking out. So...Enjoy!

Band: Fake Problems
Best Song: Real Problems in SRQ
Why: I love the vocals in this song. The first 35 seconds or so were distinctive, and I like that.
Worst Song: Degree'd or Denounced
Why: His voice just doesn't fit the song, in my opinion.

Band: Stars Below
Best Song: Atrophy
Why: The overall sound is amazing. I honestly don't have any problems with this song. At all. It's a miracle.
Worst Song: Take Me Home
Why: The sound (especially the chorus) overall is just kind of cliche.

Band: A Brief Smile
Best Song: This Machine
Why: The chorus,although repetitive, is addicting.
Worst Song: Count Me Out
Why: The slower sound just doesn't work for them.

Band: A Block of Yellow
Best Song: Helping Juliana
Why: It's got an oldies feel to it, which I love. The chorus made me want to dance like a little girl. Which although that should never happen, I liked anyways.
Worst Song: Do they have one? No. All their songs made me giggle uncontrollably.

Random Videos

Popeye Vs Anime

"Popeye, I'm serious. Get. Help." I honestly don't know what to say about this...It's...Strange.

Spongebob in China

Ahahahaha. That's horrible. I love Patricks anti-communism. Stupid thought police.


So the video quality is horrible...But it's still hilarious. It's genious. If the teacher didn't know my name, I'd try it...But it's hard to not have your name when yours is most frequently called on. Hrmph.

Pirates Main Theme

So really the song itself isn't all that impressive. But the guy has mastered the art of percussive sounds on the guitar. Which I must say, I have not...Because I play an electric guitar. But anyways, he recorded all guitar parts himself, even though you only see lead. He's gotta be awesome. I mean...Look at his shirt.

Sound Soldier #1284 Reporting!

So I was perusing the SSF today, when I stumbled upon a thread boardie EvaEvaGirl wrote. In it, she mentioned how she wrote "Sound Soldier #1545" on her hat (it's her member number). She said it's apparently both a good promotion tool & a good conversation starter. It's also apparently a big hit with other boardies, because a number of them have said they wanted to use that idea on shirts, hats, and even shoes. So if you aren't already a member, sign up now so you can get your soldier number and start promoting!

*throws confetti*

So, if any of you care, today is my bestest buddy's birthday. Which means she's still 2 months older than me. Curses! But so yhea. This will be the millionth time I've wished her happy birthday...But that's a good thing, right?

It appears as though I've been lacking significantly in posting because I've been addicted to Gaia Online lately. Which is kind of odd, considering how much I hate really huge forums like that. And stranger yet, I've been spending most of my time with Chatterbox posts, and that's a thread with lots of...well...junk (no worries. My posts are avi art posts). That, and the slots. How addicting. Heheh. I even bought June's monthly collectibles. Boy, I have a problem here.

Tom Mabe Funny Phone Call

That is amazing. I'm soooo gunna try that one day. Except maybe the part about the Mexican Midget...That's a little weird.

Potato Lighter

I wonder what'd happen if you just built an entire mound of cotton on top...

Starlight - Muse
The WORLD - Nightmare (Death Note season 1 opening theme)
What You Waiting For - Franz Ferdinand (Gwen Stefani Cover)

Franz Ferdinand Glasgow Gig Bootlegs

Tufty of Tea with Tufty made some recordings from FFs recent gig at the Grand Ole Opry in Glasgow. So enjoy, mates.

(Although I must say. English Goodbye disappointed me a bit. It's still good, but I expected more from a song Alex labeled as one of his favourites...Oh well. Favourite Lie is amazing, though.)

((If the bootlegs are no longer on the front page, just check the June 2007 archives. They're right there.))

Still Summer. Still bored.

What Super Villain Are You?

Hehe. My villain results are well...Less than surprising. Wanna see 'em? Fine.

Instant Hot Ice

That. Is. Amazing.

Howl's Moving Castle

That's right. The movie. All of it. Gaw-geous.

The Skye Sweetnam Project has started a petition to Capitol/EMI in hopes of having Sound Soldier record released sooner...Lots of signatures, and counting, but they need all they can get if Capitol/EMI's gunna take it seriously.
