Earworm: Ellie Goulding – On My Mind

For the last week and a bit since this video was released, I was hooked to this song by Ellie Goulding.  The repeating guitar riff in the verses of this angry piece simply intrigued me.  The tempo and Ellie’s voice kept the guitar sounding very urgent, but it was also the tone of the guitar…where did it come from?

We Play: Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker

Hey all!  I know I haven’t posted much.  Busy with wedding planning and all, and sort of getting stuck playing InFamous: Second Son.
I still have to get my review of  the HTC One M8, as well as Titanfall, as well as InFamous.  I have yet to actually start the work on these, well, I do have the source material for my Titanfall HAR (Half Assed Review), but I just haven’t been able to put it together.

Anyhow, this is not what this post is about.  About a week ago, Nekked and I did a session on MGS: Peace Walker, and we recorded the whole thing.  Now, it is close to 50 minutes long, and for some reason my audio is very low.  Granted this is the first time we did this, so please bear with us for now.  This is really a test run for some stuff we have planned out.

Hope y’all enjoy it, somewhat.  And if you did, please subscribe to our channel, and like our video…and while we are doing plugs, like our new FB page too! https://www.facebook.com/JWABlog

 

Happy…Thanksgivikah?

Hey, look who’s FINALLY posting!

It’s been a while, but The Big Cheese and I both figured it was a fitting time to post. We all know we’re thankful that I’m back, am I right?

*cue laugh track*

*cue crickets*

*awkward silence*

Regardless!

On behalf of everyone here at JustWroteABlog and NekkedSnake.wordpress.com, we’d like to ask you to watch this video.

(As well as have a wonderful, Happy Thanksgiving weekend. Safe shopping, fun partying, best wishes.)

Top 30 Favorite Songs of All Time: #30 “This Too Shall Pass” by OK Go

You guys and gals ready? It’s high time for me to kick off my Top 30 Favorite Songs of All Time (in no particular order, posts are just numbered from 30 to 1). I decided to start this column on the 2nd of March due to the fact that March is a 31 day month.

OK Go is a band known for going all out with their music videos (expect at least 2 or 3 of their songs here on this majestic list), and “This Too Shall Pass” has over 39 million views on YouTube, not including all those lyric videos that have at least 500 thousand views each.

The song is really catchy and is one of those that you can’t help but bob your head to the beat. If you listen closely, you’ll hear a trumpet in the song, and in fact, I’ve began to see a trend that songs that have a trumpet in them tend to please my ears a lot more. I’ll expand on this later. You’ll see for yourself, as well.

The music video for “This Too Shall Pass” is insane; it involves a Rube Goldberg machine and lots and lots of colors. In the wise words of one of my favorite artists, Kanye West, “That shit cray.” You’ll say something along those lines, too, once you’ve laid your peepers on this insane production.

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: “Canned Heat” – Jamiroquai

For some reason this song has been stuck in my head for a few days.  I recently heard it on Sirius XM, and it sort of brought me back to one of my favorite movies of all time, Napoleon Dynamite. Jon Heder doing that dance to this song is just EPIC.  JayKay also happens to be a big gear head and has made multiple appearances on one of my favorite TV shows of all time, Top Gear.

Anyway, the song is way trippy, as is the video.  It’s just a joy to listen to, puts you in a sort of feel good mood.  I don’t know, i’ve listened to it a few times over the past few days and it has made me feel a bit better.

 

And as an extra, Jon Heder’s EPIC performance from Napoleon Dynamite.
