An oldie but a goodie.  15 minutes of awesome, I'd say.

Nothing fancy.  Just Lee Kyung Won playing my favorite Guilty Gear song (Blue Water, Blue Sky- May's theme from X2) on guitar.  And since I'm a pathetic gearhead when it comes to guitars and basses the first thing I noticed was "cool, he's playing one of the ESP Kirk Hammet sig models."

I love the Least I Could Do webcomic.  Here's Rayne singing about emo kids.

I just finished watching the anime movie Paprika on TV.  It was subtitled too.  It was visually stunning but I have no idea what the hell happened over the 95 minute span of the movie.  

It's like an essay with loads of flowery prose that completely obscures and even misses any kind of point it's trying to make.  Total WTF movie.  Pretty but weird.

I recently saw the documentary Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Price on TV.  I'm already anti-Wal-Mart (their unethical business practices are often gross human rights violations), but this documentary opened my eyes to stuff I never even knew or considered about the most evil corporation ever created.

Oh sweet tits.

The worst Led Zep cover in the entirety of the space-time continuum.

To be fair, it didn't start off too badly, but once it got all 80s synth poppy, I was ready to vomit.  

Then again, 99% of any Stairway to Heaven cover will suck compared to the original, but this one was pretty bad. You've all seen this awful mess before.

I forgot if I posted this already.  Whatever.  It f'n brutalizes.

It's studio footage of Cannibal Corpse, just the guitar, bass, and drums doing Frantic Disembowelment.

No, I don't play any MMORPGs.  However, I am a fan of Ryan Sohmer and Lar DeSouza's work (I love Least I Could Do; it's one of my favorite webcomics), so it only made sense that I should check out LFG.  And I think it's great; I love how it's hysterical yet also tells a pretty complex tale.  Richard and Krunch are my favorite characters.

If anyone likes the webcomic Looking for Group ( ) as much as I do, you'll certainly be amused by Richard singing "Slaughter Your World."

The comic just reaffirms my theory that everyone I've ever encountered named Richard is completely insane, but in an entertaining way.

That was on TV back when I was 10 or so.  I was so excited to see a cartoon based on my favorite Nintendo game and felt blasphemed that Link was an obnoxious jackass and Zelda was a cold hard bitch.  I expected Link to be a valorous chivalrous knight and Zelda to be a nicer princess; I mean wouldn't you be more appreciative of the person who saves your ass in every game?  Even at age 10, before I really knew what anime was, I envisioned a Zelda cartoon looking like something out of these:

The other day I saw something on the History Channel about actual archaeological connections and research to the Indiana Jones movies.  One thing that stood out to me was when one scholar said that archaeologists laughed during the opening sequence of Crystal Skull because there really ARE warehouses like that (often attached to research universities) where all manner of historical treasures exist and few people really know they're actually there.  To archeologists, the warehouse bit was funny because it was true.  Go figure, huh?  

Every time an Indy movie comes out, people get excited about archeology again.

Eh, Weezer's best albums were still Blue and Pinkerton.  

Anyway, here's "Swimming Pool" by The Nerve.  Joe Nerve, the bassist, plays with Bumblefoot and a bunch of others and I bought my Warwick off of him.  When I first watched the video's bedroom scenes, I was like "THAT'S MY BASS!!!!"

Sorry Joe, but you ain't getting your old Warwick back.

I just came back from Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull.  (I don't need the whole "kingdom of..." in the title.  It's better like this:P)  I flippin' loved it.  Wonderful Indiana Jones installment.  It's like the expanse of time between the films never was.  Nothing was overwrought or anything.  Were there segments where I had to consciously suspend my disbelief?  Oh absolutely, but I've had to do that for every Indy film, especially Temple of Doom.  

*smacks lips* I could really use some snake surprise and chilled monkey brains right about now.  mmm mmm mmm delicious!  (though if I'm not mistaken, snakes and monkey brains are actually delicacies in some parts of Africa.)

So you think Steve Harris (Iron Maiden) and Alex Webster (Cannibal Corpse) are fast bassists?  Jayen Varma is said to be one of the world's fastest.  I believe he set a record at playing 36 notes a second.  

A short clip about his speed:

Here he does some funky groovy stuff:

I guess that some okay playing, but it pains me to see that somebody fucked up an Explorer with all those wapanese stickers.  God, I hope it's a copy and not the real deal. :P

The headstock didn't look like a Gibson headstock to me.  The one the kid was playing looked longer and more rounded at the end.  Methinks it was a Kramer headstock.

Still, it's not as bad as Flea obtaining a super rare, pre-CBS, 1960's Fender P-bass with a shell pink finish valued at $30K... and immediately slapping a sticker on it.  Bass Player magazine managed to snap some pics of the bass before it got to Flea so we could see it before Flea stickered it up.  I love Flea and I adore the Red Hot Chili Peppers, but I don't like the way Flea stickers up his basses.  Stickered up guitars/basses just look cheap to me.  

Anyway, this video is one reason why I love the Screaming Headless Torsos so much.  Every musician in that band is an absolute beast and that drummer man... whoa!
