    Cowboy Bebop, FLCL, and then the rest. Miyizaki I can get behind.
  1. 4/10 I didn't like the beat at all, tbh. It wasn't particularly terrible but it was a very average and unmemorable, which is how I'd describe most of post-hardcore, which I guess is what this tries to be. Kind of soft though. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EIurAP4yHtQ[/media] Skip the first ~1:20 of this video because it is not part of the song.
  2. 7/10 Well it was sort of bland, but it was still pretty catchy and that counts for something. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AoQ_InIw0ik[/media]
  3. [quote name='Dragon Warrior' timestamp='1295905122' post='704235'] Haha, indeed. And a lot of those are good songs, particularly the Pixies ones. And yeah, in the original song, that's all the guitar is. And I don't recall any other instruments accompanying it. It's a fairly simple, soft song. [/quote] Pixies, absolutely. Got my tickets for their reunion show in Montreal in April. So excited.
  4. I find [b]Margot and the Nuclear So and So's [/b]just absolutely boring, tbh. I've never seen what people see in them. It's all such bland indierock fare to me. Anywho: [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jOoHAbnhxNI[/media] [b]Japandroids:[/b] No God Only JPNDRDS. A two-piece from around Vancouver, they make an incredible amount of noise. They've got this sorta post-teenage-angst, nostalgic vibe to them, which I can relate too because you can tell they grew up on the same steady diet of shitty pop-punk that I did. Mostly though, they just ******* rock. One of the best concerts you'll ever go to, aswell. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mfiCqYuC4W8[/media] [b]Fang Island[/b]: Formed out of the ashes of grindcore legends [b]Daughters[/b], these guys are basically the sound of everyone high fiving everyone else in the room. Just lots of love for them. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vFlBJ1xZK10[/media] [b]Dan Deacon[/b]: Just makes me wanna dance, man. Dance all ******* night. I dunno what you call it. Post rave? New Rave? It all sounds like a good time to me. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z70pm71Xuv4[/media] [b]Man... or Astro-Man?[/b]: ******* astro surf, yes thanks. They are seriously amazing. I wish this reunion tour would swing through Canada a little more because man. Everything they do makes me happy. Especially their cover the MST3k theme. IN THE NOT TOO DISTANT FUTURE etc There's some **** for you.
  5. [img]http://img202.imageshack.us/img202/7428/20110124170705481.jpg[/img] Hey bad news beautiful people And you are, you know. All of you such beautiful people. Dwarrior I miss having hair like that. But I let it go too long and I looked like an old lesbian. So here's to having short in the back not too short on the top hair!
  6. Oh god everyone responded to me and now I feel like some kind of fool. A damn fool. :C
  7. Thread, why is there no thread on this forum to post silly pictures of ourselves. Are we all just ashamed of our hideous nerdishness, or is there some bizarre rule against it. EDIT: Oh wait this thread does exist this is why I should scroll down. You so crazy, Me!
  8. I am just really, incredibly late to the [b]Song Of Ice And Fire[/b] party. But my god, what a party. I had thrown the entire genre of high fantasy into a trash pin and mistaken it for a urinal. But it's such an incredible piece of fiction. I just finished the third book. And I'm so excited for the HBO series. Cersei is such a *****. I'm reading [b]The Forever War[/b] by Joe Haldeman until I go out and get the next book. And as ever I am working my way through [b]Infinite Jest[/b]. I feel like it's hopeless, the thing is too brilliant to be read.
  9. Alright boys and girls. Simple thread. Someone posts a song via the YouTube. Or you know any other medium like that. Don't just write the name of the song, I'll stab you. Please try and listen to the whole thing. If someone posts a 15 minute free-form blackjazz odyssey I'll understand if you skip to the end, but otherwise, come on. It's not that much time out of your life. After you give the song a listen, you rate it. Out of 10, because all other scales are for pretentious scum. Write a little critique of the song with the rating. What'd ya like. What pissed you off. What blew your mind. What ever. That way it won't be considered spam, I think. These threads can be a lot of fun so let's do this. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ebhVhkba3Xk[/media] Romance Is Boring by Los Compesinos! Enjoy.
  10. This is a solid cover, man, although I'm not familiar with the original. If only the acoustic guitar weren't so boring. I love doing covers with my band. They're so much more fun than original songs, because self expression is so corny, y'know? So we mostly play covers. I have none recorded and I have absolutely no way to do that, because the rest of Proust On Fire is in another city. But in our repitoire we have: Debaser, Wave Of Mutilation, and Tame by the Pixies. Cut Your Hair by Pavement. Bad Reputation by Joan Jett (**** you, it is a great song.). Slack Motherfucker by Superchunk. Fortuante Son by CCR. Smells Like Teen Spirit by you know who. Icky Thump by the White Stripes. A bunch of thrash metal I don't know. I can't tell it from itself, I just play the drums. Black History Month and Cold War by DFA1979. Young Hearts Spark Fire by JPDNRDS. Sorry I've got no links but hey, at least it's a response right?
  11. I'm a paleontologist. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B7zo2zY1Zqg[/media] Or at least I would be. Apparently you have to go to school for that ****. I don't care man. I am a paleontologist. But really my theme song is this, because I'm in a constant state of regret that lends itself naturally to nostalgia. [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0R2pZQ0eqs8[/media] EDIT: This board doesn't use [yt][/yt] tags?! Maddening.
  12. I am Studabacher Hoch callem Stawks. I'm just this big gay thing who likes to steal his personality from webcomics and listen to music. My favourite word is cunt. Speaking of which I play the drums, like a mad cunt most of the time. I have a crush on Finnish guys. I enjoy the smell of a new book more than I do the words. I'm not on Facebook, because I'm a social terrorist. I love people who talk during movies, I think it makes each watch a unique experience. I'm a Sabian man, Zildjian go home. I think HBO is the greatest thing that has ever existed, and perhaps the greatest that ever will. That said the best thing on television continues to be The Venture Bros. I discovered Titus Andronicus before the p4k review. I've never been punched. I've lost 60 pounds in a span of four months, mostly by taking the stairs. Still too fat for words. And lastly I want everyone to love me. <3 PS Don't tell me I swear too much, because I know. Sods.
