Today in random shit: Sailor Moon theme song, R&B style

August 27, 2014 at 10:18 pm (Random Shit) (, , , , )

The Sailor Moon theme song (whether in Tagalog, Japanese, English, or Platina Jazz) has a tendency to make the ’90s-minded anime junkie’s blood surge. In a good way. Even (and especially when) transformed by Scott Bradlee & Postmodern Jukebox into a retro R&B slow jam.

This is part of Bradlee and company’s terribly entertaining series of R&B-ized Saturday morning cartoon theme songs, which includes Darkwing Duck, Powerpuff Girls, Pokemon, and more.

Postmodern Jukebox also covers a wide array of pop songs. Ever wanted to hear Jason Derulo’s Talk Dirty as a traditional klezmer song? Or Lady Gaga’s Just Dance as a vintage ’40s ditty? You do now.

Today in random shit: Lost

July 10, 2014 at 1:19 pm (Random Shit) (, , )

I continue to think of myself as less of an Amanda Palmer fan, than a Neil Gaiman fan who just sort of bled into the Amanda Palmer side of YouTube music videos, but some days are for zoning out at lunch at your work desk and listening to ‘Lost’ and thinking ‘this is both a happy and sad song, but mostly sad, very sad.’

So continues the weird, lurching, haphazard updating of this blog n__n.

Today in random shit: Don’t hug me I’m scared

April 19, 2013 at 1:06 pm (Random Shit) (, , )

There are some strange, disturbing videos out in YouTube-land. And then there’s this.

I was expecting one of them feel-good artistic inspirational videos. Instead, I am amused, terrified, depressed, introspective and disturbed all at once (and at the end of a work week, that’s a good feeling to have).

Today in random shit: The Killing Type

February 23, 2013 at 4:17 pm (Random Shit) (, , )

There are a whole lot of Amanda Palmer songs. Sometimes I like them. Sometimes I don’t. And sometimes (as in the case of ‘In My Mind’), I listen to them over and over again until my definition of contentment at that particular point in time includes necessarily listening to that song.

‘I’m not the killing type, but I would kill to make you feel.’ This isn’t one of those songs I personally relate to, but it sinks in deep and takes root. ‘Die die die die.’

Today in random shit: Rodrigo y Gabriela

Rodrigo y Gabriela playing Diablo Rojo, which I first heard in the Puss in Boots movie.

Happy first week and three days of 2013 (randomly: 2013 is the first year since 1987 which features four different numbers. Mind blown).

Today in random shit: Pyromaniac’s playlist

December 24, 2012 at 9:31 am (Random Shit) (, , )

Because some people just want to watch the world burn, and possibly sing about it too.

fire

This Fire (Franz Ferdinand)

This fire is out of control/ I’m gunna burn this city/Burn this city

Staring At The Sun (The Offspring)

I won’t be burned by the reflection/ Of the fire in your eyes/ As you’re staring at the sun

Today in random shit: Quixotic

December 10, 2012 at 12:30 pm (Random Shit) (, , , )

I’ve pointed out before that xkcd and Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal sort of cross tracks every now and then (regarding sheeple, supermarket brands, and physics) .

It’s happened again:


On a completely different topic, this was xkcd from three years ago:

I only really point this out because xkcd and SMBC are the only two webcomics I visit on a daily basis. Even if I know they don’t update on a daily basis.

Today in random shit: Music for the zombie apocalypse

October 3, 2012 at 2:33 am (Awesome, Random Shit) (, , , , )

I’m currently halfway through Mira Grant’s ‘Deadline‘, the book which comes after ‘Feed’ (which I’ve talked about here) and before ‘Blackout’ in the Newsflesh Trilogy (Newsflesh. Feed. Deadline. Blackout. Because it’s about journalism and zombies. Get it?).

deadline

Which gets me wondering what the music in my head will be when hell fills up and the dead walk the earth (or, if you like, when Kellis-Amberlee hits the atmosphere. Or when Umbrella Corp starts fucking people over in earnest). This is more a commentary on my taste in music than the end of the world, but this will be what I’ll be hearing when…

I witness zombies congregating in the streets, out for fresh meat:

When I make a mad dash to the local pub in the hopes of holding out there, because that’s where all the beer is:

Today in random shit: The dog who was a cat inside

June 14, 2012 at 8:38 am (Random Shit) (, , )

For today’s quota of pretty animation.

I think the moral lesson is ‘somewhere in the world is a freak just like you, except inverted.’ Or. Something.
