Just in case, I want to point out that this thread is for whatever you want to post, it doesn’t have to be related to stuff others posts here. It’s just a general music video thread where you are free to post whatever you like, or you feel others might like.
That song reminded me of a video I found, “The Bicycle Strip”. I only watched it because it was shot on the same camera I have, and with the same lens I’m currently saving for, although the thumbnail helped to force my mouse over it and click on it. I couldn’t help it, it was like one of those ouija boards moving my hand to select it.
I should also point out that it’s NSFW:
Didn’t like Magica, they’re just another Nightwish to my ears. There’s clearly talent there, but it’s not compatible with the harmonic and melodic sensors in my ears. It hits my eardrums and bounces off again rather than being absorbed as anything catchy. Palava just bored me as well. Has to be catchy or unusual for me to like it.
Oh, and Lizzy Borden appears to be right nutter (which can be a good thing)!
As for Spice and Wolf, the title of the last episode I’ve seen so far was “Wolf and Her Helpless Partner” although I think it should have been called “You two, get a room”. Will probably watch episode 5 tonight. Perhaps “girly” wasn’t the right term for it but it’s still girly compared to stuff like Ghost in the Shell.
Regards Boney M, yes indeed, there’s definitely some serious talent going on with their recordings. I once tried to look up who did the compression work but hit a brick wall and couldn’t find out. I found names but no definite clue as to who did what because a few engineers have worked on their stuff, often more than one engineered a single track. Whoever it was working the compressor, I was hoping they’d wrote a book on the subject because I’ve never heard such perfectly crafted compression, like I said, on any other tracks by any other band. It pumps transparently yet powerfully, and the amazing thing is, the compressor even seems to ‘dance’ if that makes any sense. I think whoever did that (especially on the Ma Baker track) is an absolute craftsman with the compressor!
Regards Russia, yes, yes indeed, Russia is respected for it’s achievements as well, of course it is. I was just dwelling on the negatives when I wrote that. But yup, Russia is known for opera, musicians, ballet, and of course athletes. Your opinion on England is only slightly off I think. The only problems I ever hear of are between Ireland and the UK, there is generally no other rifts, certainly not with Scotland or Wales, not that I know of. We don’t have armed men patrolling the borders between England/Scotland or England/Wales - we just go where we like, and so do they, never a problem. The only real rift was over Northern Ireland and even that seems to be on level ground the last time I heard anything. As for the English being secretive, yes, your’re right, we are, and that’s a direct result of the way we are treated as citizens. There is just sooooooooo much red tape in England that it’s become a constant pressure to live here. This country is perfectly rigged by solicitors for solicitors. The government have no control over anything, and whatever they do flex their muscles over is always something that puts even more stress on it’s citizens and shoves them further still into that secrecy you observe.
Personally, I prefer to be outspoken, I’m not a typical Englishman.
Farscape, yup, I thought you might like that. I noticed that Farscape seemed to be structured differently to other series of the genre in that it played more like a film rather than have a radically different topic for each episode. Been a while since they showed it here but I would definitely watch it again if they do.
Regards Alien 3, I thought it was an ok film. The problem is that Dance really does steal the show with that acting thing he does, but he’s only in the first half. There’s a daunting seriousness about the first half, but later it all goes back to being as false and ridiculous as the second movie was. If you ever see the movie you’ll understand what I mean. One other thing to be careful of is that you never pick up a British copy that has been censored by the a-holes at the BBFC. I was absolutely furious when I found a clip on YouTube showing one of the clips the BBFC decided us adults can’t handle. Don’t you just love censorship, adults telling other adults what they can and can’t watch. Thank god for the internet then, it means the BBFC bullshit is doomed.
Try not to drink anything when you watch this banned clip (no really):
