One month down, and an Earworm: Bangarang – Skrillex

We now head into the 2nd month of the 2013, I cannot believe January just came and went.  It was quick a busy month, with work and all.  I finally got to build a new PC and so far it’s been just a peach to use.  I will do a quick write up on it probably this month.  It will cover the selection process, and why I picked the parts I picked.

Also, our very very late review on Resident Evil 6 is being finished.  I know it’s been a while since it’s been released, but it’s gonna be done through the eyes of casual gamer‘s, and fans of the series. We might start putting together our retro review section.  A lot of exciting things in the works, but also, my project list is filling up.  I have another website project in the works to be launched in the coming weeks, as well as my photography, and the return of WIGN.

I apologize if we cannot provide you guys with new content everyday, it’s tough with work and school, the best we can do is fill up our folders with stuff, then just post them as we get them done.  Hoping you can stick it out with us.

And lastly, an Earworm.  It’s by Skrillex, and it’s been stuck in my head for the past 2 days.  I am not much into dubstep, but this one I kinda enjoy.

Earworm: “Paradise” by Coldplay

A really good mix of electronic beats with Chris Martin’s soothing Brit-rock voice. Can’t be beaten.

It’s been played to death by the radio, but it still has a place in my music library. I still love this song. Damn.

Some special meaning behind this post, as well. I’m posting this about 4 days after the 1st anniversary of the release of this amazing song.

Earworm: “Woo Boost” by Rusko.

Um, well, yes, this is dubstep. Woo-woo-woo-bahbahbah-woop. That kinda ish, y’know? The noise your grandparents complain about.

I guess this is a popular dubstep song to begin with, but I heard it first just this weekend in an Adidas outlet store in Deer Park, Long Island. Heard it playing and instantly knew I had to Shazam it.

Not a bad tune to get the energy flowing when painting or drawing or on a photography shoot or driving or whatever you’re doing. Played it all day today when I was drawing. Drawing, drawing, drawing. Arts.

All I can think about lately is arts.

Oh, and the fact that technology is failing on me. My phone is breaking again, although I can safely blame one or two apparatuses, one being the actual charging port itself, or the charging cable I am using. And my mom’s laptop literally crashed as soon as I turned it on.

Earworm: “Pyramids” by Frank Ocean

If you’ve been following my Earworm posts, I have an array of musical tastes. Impossible to decide what my favorite genre is, endless possibilities as to what I’ll listen to next. I’ve been following Frank Ocean and the rest of Odd Future for a little bit now, and Frank just performed on SNL.

He recently took a ride on the fame train and skyrocketed to fame as a solo artist with the release of his debut album, Channel Orange (and the ridiculous controversy that surrounded it. Who cares about his sexual orientation. He’s still a human). He was nominated for Best New Artist at the 2012 MTV VMA’s, but was snubbed by British boy band One Direction. Where was Kanye when you needed him?!

I never though I’d truly get into the whole R&B, rap, hip-hop, smooth type music again, but I’m finding bits and pieces to be really good. I don’t regret anything.

What I’m getting at here is that you never know what you might like listening to. My ears enjoy a lot of different sounds! And this song is one of the best songs out there, in my opinion. One of the best songs off of Frank Ocean’s Channel Orange, in fact.
