I remember that vid! Not sure what anime was used though.

With all the crap going on in american politics I've been listening to a lot of modern protest music. This one from Rage against the machine: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4smim2MNvF8

And this one as well by Michael Franti. Rock the nation: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ApFM8qIo-Ys

Have you heard of Prophets of Rage?
That's one EPIC supergroup and seems like they're here when we need em most.

Every time I see a news headline I suddenly hear this blasting in my head.

I'm currently on a bit of a Versailles / Kamijo binge listen atm, while gutted that I haven't been able to make it to my country's leg of the current Versailles European tour.  I'm busy with my work at this time of year, and can't really go either for health reasons.  I've been hearing reports that they're back on top form again as well.  I really hope that they return to Europe again soon, and at a better time of year for me (Winter is bad).

A few more days of waiting for the whole tracks to be available.

Had to go and find some more music lately, just out of pure boredom:



I'm not very familiar with grindcore/deathgrind/etc, so I don't often find stuff from that part of metal that I really like, but when I do, it usually ends up being something I like a lot (like this band called Infectious Catheter Therapy, they kick ass). I'm in love with this song. I'm almost hesitant to check out the rest of this album, out of fear that it won't live up to my expectations, because this song is amazing to me.



I usually just have to play the first 20 seconds of the song a few times before playing it all the way through. Love the opening.



Just bought America Must Be Destroyed again after all these years...my disk was just way too scratched to rip to mp3s, or to listen to at all. Hearing this is like remembering a lost time in my teenage years, haha. One of the heaviest songs GWAR's ever made, in my opinion.
I like big butts, but I do have the tendency to lie quite a bit.

During last night's Dark Heresy game, I was introduced to this rather fun song, Children of the Dark, which is a collaboration between Mono Inc. and a few others.

I've been really digging some of X Japan's stuff just lately, and I've come across Rose of Pain, which strikes me as being a bit of a Castlevania-esque song.

Nice! I've been digging Starboy by The Weeknd big time man. Been listening to that and Daft Punk a lot.

Have you heard the new singer called H.E.R.? Excellent r&b. She's got a new EP that's worth checking out.

Someone on my fb friends list just had to go and post a video of Sarah Brightman and Antonio Banderas singing Phantom's Theme.  Cue me going and watching this, my ultimate Christine and Phantom.  I am so sad I never got to see these two perform together Live.  I was gutted that despite being in London the weekend of the 25th Anniversary performance at the Royal Albert Hall I was unable to go to that as tickets were crazily expensive for decent seats.  I've been a Phantom Phan for most of my life.  This is now setting me off on a Phantom binge methinks....

God I love the Phantom. It's so beautiful the whole way through.

But Emmy Rossum will always be my Christine. I was working on music one night and my wife was watching a show and I turned my head and was like "holy shit"! It was Emmy Rossum in Shameless. I was a little shocked. Lol

I still have to see a live show of Phantom though.

It's so interesting that it's based on a true story too.

It's so interesting that it's based on a true story too.

First: FANS OF THE MOVIE MUSICAL UNITE!!

Second: The story is "based" on real events in a peculiar way. It's an amalgam of various things that were not really connected in any way that Gaston Leroux had read about/encountered over his life up to that point that he sort of found fantastical and couldn't forget. Eventually, he linked these things together in the serial novel we know today as "Phantom of the Opera". But almost every part of the novel is based in a true thing that played out during Leroux's lifetime. The story however was entirely his invention.

Also: watch the French dub of the film of the musical. Christine's dub in particular is magical, though Raoul is hilariously slightly off. Everyone else is good to great.
How not to be a dark lord: the answer to that is a terribly interesting answer that involves an almost Jedi-like adherence to keeping oneself under control and finding ways to be true to yourself in a way that doesn't encourage the worst parts of you to become dangerously exaggerated and instead feeds your better nature. Also, protip: don't fuck with Alchemy or strike up any deals with ancient Japanese Shinigami gods no matter how tempting the deal or how suavely dressed the Shinigami is.

I aore the musical, but don't love the movie version of it so much.  I think that Emmy's vocal type wasn't quite right for Christine, I found her singing voice a bit nasal and just didn't have the right colour to it.  Gerard Butler was wonderful eye candy (I love him in Dracula 2000), but he wasn't experienced enoug a singer, so I can tell where they had to digitally tweak/extend his notes with the autotune.  I thought Minnie Driver was hilarious as Charlotta, but they snubbed the lady a lot who'd provided Charlotta's singing voice aferwards, which wasn't good.  I also disliked that they trimmed Phantom's Theme in the film, and downplayed Erik's disfigurement to the point where it barely looked like the big issue it was meant to be, over how monstrous he looked.  That said, I love it that a movie was made of the ALW musical.  I have a lot of love for Phantom films in general.  Dario Argento's 'horror' version is hilarious, especially as Erik isn't disfigured physically, he's just completely off his rocker and insane after being raised by rats.  Has anyone seen Love Nnever Dies, either the original production or the reworked Australian production that was released on dvd?  As much as I love Ramin and Sierra as Erik and Christine, and I love how much more skeletal they made Erik's disfigurement look, the soundtrack cd I found painful to listen to in places because of the wording.  It was bad.  The Australian reworking was so much better, but still it's not a patch on Phantom.  The Phantom of Manhatten book that LND shares a source with is equally bad.
