    One of my earlier existential crises happened when I was around 9 years old. Here's how I connect that moment to my love of Bruce Springsteen.

  • Chase - The start of an album

    4 weeks ago

    Scetchlee Scetchlee

    I've been so inspired by the whole idea of genLOCK that i've started the creation of some sort of fan EP/album based (so far) upon the art snippets we've seen so far. This is the first demo. https://soundcloud.com/scetchlee-portfolio/genlock-1m1-chase hope to do more as we get to know more.


    Also, i'm bloody excited for the next season of CampCamp! Jordan and Yssa and Jordan Battle and everybody; You're bloody awesome!

  • Nostalgia Breakers Playlist

    1 month ago

    chelsea_might

    I've been separately blogging about music for awhile. Geoff's latest trend of sharing some of his curated tunes inspired me to bring what I'm digging over to the RT site. This first list is comprised of newer, younger artists out there who can break you out of your music rut if you're itchin' for something new. Destroy Boys, The Chain Gang of 1974, and The Wrecks are just a sample of what you're in for.


    I’m as much a sucker for nostalgia culture as the next guy. We all feed that beast and then complain about how big it has grown. It’s gotten so big, in fact, that #tbt playlists are no longer welcome opportunities to revisit classics from middle school dance days. Instead, they’ve become overplayed lists of the same ~20 tunes. They've lost all sentimental appeal, becoming just as inescapable now as they had been in their heyday (looking at you, Ignition Remix. It’s 2018, we need to stop supporting R. Kelly).


    I want to combat that addiction to fight for “the good old days” with a quick list of the artists you should be checking out right now, instead of spinning your “Reblog if u r a tru 90s kid” playlist for the thousandth time. This is as much a reminder for myself as it is for you.


    Spotify Playlist: Nostalgia Breakers Part I


    Here's my full blog about why these artists are my recent fixes. If you're into these artists, you should let a girl know.

  • I figured 11 years is probably enough time spent lurking

    So, first post.

    Not sure what people really put in a first post.
    I'm Jason, I'm 19, and I've been here in the shadows for quite a while (I've been more active on the IB site than here).

    I'm a gamer, like quite a few people here I'd imagine, and am pretty willing to play just about anything I can. I also enjoy playing around with and making music. 

    I'm really not one with words, feels like shouting into a soundproof room.

    Anyway, feel free to fire me a message if anyone's up for a game of something.

  • Parody Song Translation - Damned Opel

    2 months ago

    zeitgeistzest

    Rough translation by yours truly~~ here's the song.

    after a thousand smoky driving meters,

    the man opens the Opel’s hood

    by the road a grey Opel

    it’s October and raining

    burning smell of battery acid stings the eye

    somewhere a flame, the Opel coughs


    take out your phone and call a cab
    just push that damn Opel into a swamp


    passers-by give weirded looks
    the Opel driver ignores them all
    he turns the ignition key,
    but just can’t get the Opel to start
    sweat drops on his forehead
    who told you to get an Opel?


    take out your phone and call a cab
    just push that damn Opel into a swamp


    with numb fingers he grabs the plug wires
    just last week he bought a new engine
    the car shop praised in earnest
    but Opel is the shittiest ever


    “But, but, what says to this the Opel driver himself?”


    exhaust fumes get in the nostrils,
    oils trickle down the gutter
    parts after parts
    had them installed at a brand store
    who told me to get an Opel?
    I’m stupid and you guessed it, I lament

    take out your phone and call a cab
    push that damn Opel down the swamp

    with numb fingers, he grabs the plug wires
    just last week he bought a new engine
    the car shop praised in earnest
    but Opel is the shittiest ever

    Opel is the shittiest ever

    (Btw, I drove an Opel Vectra for a couple of years... not totally an awful car to drive, but... yeah. XD)

  • Parody Song Translation - We're Driving a Tractor

    2 months ago

    zeitgeistzest

    Ajetaan me traktorilla - lyrics roughly translated by yours truly~~ 

    NOTE: ? marks an unknown word (couldn't find the Finnish lyrics written anywhere so had to go by ear), *’s are apparently place names of small towns in southern Finland

    SONG:


    I came from the manure storage, from lower yard’s barn
    smells like cow shit in there, you watched me shovel dung
    walked around chicken coops, piggeries, cattle sheds
    swung manure forks, continuously felt nauseous


    we’re driving a tractor, tippling through the night
    on the hinterlands field road, and from there to the pub


    I’ve been to Kuppila*, Myrskylä**, Askola***
    in every pub until dawn my mouth squawked
    ? and the cap, the calfskin jacket
    in the pub the tractor’s ?? was having a beer by the table

    we’re driving a tractor, making noise and tippling
    on the hinterlands field roads, and from there to the pub

    in the small hours it’s good to ride home
    listen for the buzzing, those fuckers playing in the head
    buttocks are numb, I’m driving drunk
    tastes like cat pee in the mouth, heeo-heeo-heeo-hoy

    we’re driving a tractor, making noise and tippling
    on the hinterlands field road, and from there to the pub

    back home early in the morning, of course feeling great
    ??? the wife thoroughly ???? recounts
    I was out drinking, boozing at the pub
    the fuck am I doing here, in a hurry to get wasted

    we’re driving a tractor, making noise and tippling
    on the hinterlands field road, and from there to the pub


    we’re driving a tractor, a fucking tractor
    on the hinterlands field road, and from there to the pub
    we’re driving a tractor, a fucking tractor
    on the fucking field road, and from there to the pub

    Yeah. I was really bored one time. XD 

  • Very loud band rehersal and other music things

    2 months ago

    stefanni_mah

    well hello again!


    It is currently 7:40 in the evening and I'm still stuck at school on stage with my schools band.


    We're 70ish people and God it's loud I can't even hear my own thoughts...


    Rehersal goes from 6 to 8:30, so my head is pounding and I just want to go home by the end of it!


    To make it even more tiring, I have a choir rehersal before my band rehersal and that goes from 3:15-5:00!!


    I honestly only 30 minutes to eat before more playing!! It's a hard life!


    I also play the bari sax which is one of the bigger saxophones and it's really heavy, so I always have back, neck and shoulder pain after rehersals!


    Well music is a huge part of my life. I'm the vice-president of my schools music council, i play about 9 instruments and i sing.


    Music is such a beautiful form of expression and it's able to speak and convey things that words simply cannot!


    I strongly believe that everyone should have any form of music in their lives!


    So what kind of music do you guys enjoy? Do you play any instruments or which instrument do you wish you could learn?


    Much love,

    Steph xx

    I love to create. Last year I was able to work with a bunch of great people and create some awesome music videos. I'm set to make some more in the near future. But I just wanted to share the ones that are out there for the world to see. You can catch them on my site JessyGonzalez.com and, please, if you like the music, support the bands and stream/buy their music and see them when they come to a town near you.

  • Songs of the Month - 2018/02

    Arthro

    2018/01 (January)

    ---------------------------------------


    Anamanaguchi - Endless Fantasy

    Great little chiptune song with really nice production, I found them through the Scott Pilgrim game soundtrack.  Good stuff.


    Joji - Thom

    This was my introduction to Lofi type music, I knew of the dude through Filthy Frank.  The samples at the front end are top notch.


    Childish Gambino - Freaks and Geeks

    The first Gambino song I ever heard, this was the song that got me into Gambino and other artists like Chance and Danny Brown.  It's quite punny as well as being included in a fantastic EP.


    Biffy Clyro - Many of Horror

    A song I heard a bunch when I was younger, full to the brim with guitar towards the second half as well as the lead singers thick scottish accent.  Makes me feel a bit patriotic haha.


    Simon & Garfunkel - Sound of Silence

    Whenever you hear someone talk about 'real music' they usually mean something like this, and I can't deny that it's great.  Great harmonies as well as being lyrically interesting.


    James Blake - Sound of Silence

    Heavy-on-production cover which never fails to impress me.  His other stuff is great as well, but I'll write about that in another months list probably.


    Childish Gambino - Zealots of Stockholm

    Another really heavily produced track from one of my favourite albums ever.  Maybe I just like the bass hitting my ears.


    Porter Robinson / Madeon - Shelter

    Great samples throughout the track, great melody, great song in whole.  This won't be the last time I mention Madeon.


    The Clash - Rock the Casbah

    Classic song, really clever lyrics with references to different middle-eastern building and such.  Catchy chorus as well.


    Joe Hisaishi - One Summer's Day

    This song takes me back to one of my favourite films ever, totally transports me to a different time in my life. Brilliant film. Beautiful song. 


    Daft Punk - Aerodynamic

    On of my favourite instrumental tracks from Daft Punk, I love the almost impossible guitar riffs at the front of the track and the hypnotic synths towards the end. 


    Frank Ocean - Pyramids

    I used to listen to the song while cycling, because I could cycle into the centre of town in about the same length as the track, it made it feel like I was in a music video or something.


    Ninja Sex Party - 6969

    Great comedic song, tons of attitude and personality. Danny Sexbang is my idol.

  • Hello People!

    ModernFlash Jordan Wright

    Hello people of the Rooster Teeth Website,


    I just want to introduce myself and say hello. I've been a big fan of Rooster Teeth Production since 2016 and a fan of the Slow Mo Guys since 2011. I've been watching RT for awhile now but I never became involved in the community, so today I decided to change that.


    I am a trombone player from Memphis who loves Music (of course I do that's one of my main points) and as a result of my playing I've was given the opportunity to go on tour in Europe and play Jazz, Blues, and R&B in London, Manchester, Gateshead, and Milton Keynes in the UK; Bordeaux and Cahors in France. I plan on doing the same thing in the summer. I've had other great opportunity's in music but that's a long list, so let's stick with my biggest one.


    I can't wait to get involved more with this community and learn more about you people and grow with you all.


    Sincerely,

    ModernFlash AKA Jordan Wright


    P.S. Your probably are wondering "has an 18 year really done this" and yes I have and that's how much I love Music but at the same time I want to be a Computer Engineer. Can I have both? Of course I can!

  • Songs of the Month - 2018/01

    4 months ago

    Arthro

    Inspired by @geoff, I will do my best to make a list of songs that I like every month and what I like about them;


    ---------------------------------------


    Brockhampton - Boogie

    The siren loop in the background is something I really like about the track, plus most of their song are REALLY heavy on production/instrumental which is always something I'm looking for.


    The Hoosiers - Goodbye Mr A

    This is one of those songs that when I was younger, I heard on the radio all the time.  It talks about a teacher being detached from normality, away from being under the teacher persona. That's something most can relate to I guess.


    Outkast - Ms Jackson

    The samples piano in the track production is brilliant and the hook gets stuck in my head all the time.


    Depeche Mode - Enjoy the Silence

    I bunch of the songs I enjoy come from what I heard my parents listening to, and that's where this 80's song comes into the list.  It's really great how an older song can still hold up and not feel really out of date.


    Daft Punk - Veridis Quo

    They know how to make a really simple and really repetitive song without making it feel like wasted time.  It's kinda hypnotic.


    They Might Be Giants - The Mesopotamians

    This is one of my gulity pleasure songs, even if it's the most infuriating song to spell.  The songs lyrics are really unique despite me not understanding the song 100% first time listening.


    Chance The Rapper - Blessings

    I really enjoy the lyrics of the songs, as well as the gospel kinda feel around the song, the whole of that album feels really gospel to be honest.


    Editors - Munich

    Another one of the songs that I've heard my parents listen to.  Quite a heavy guitar song which I'm always into.  Intro riff is catchy too.


    Jane Bordeaux - מעגלים (Ma'agalim)

    I initially found this song because the video got posted on an animation forum, I got into folk music after listening to this song which made a fine edition to my collection.


    Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra - Utsukushiku Moeru Mori

    I can't really remember how I found this one, but after hearing this I went through a bunch of the bands singles and I'm yet to find a bad one.  Maybe it's hard to go wrong with that genre...


    ---------------------------------------


    I guess I'll be back next month with a similar post with other artists, who knows though.  I might forget.
