The House of Hitstun

Bill Wurtz – history of the entire world, i guess

Thursday, May 11th, 2017 at 11:50 pm | Video

Bill Wurtz followed up on his history of japan video with history of the entire world, i guess. It concisely covers the formation of the universe, the beginnings of life on Earth, and all of human civilization in a wonderful 20 minute acid trip.

So, um, I left the title of the video in all lowercase. Should I stop correcting names and titles to standard English capitalization? I might go undo all the capitalization changes I made, like the capital P I was using for “pixiv“. My username used to be a case-insensitive “hitstun”, like the fighting game term, but I tend to use “Hitstun” more now. I’ll do this when I’m not three weeks behind on Feedly I mean feedly.

Shuey’s Perfect Clear Study (Phase 2 – Sparta!)

Wednesday, May 10th, 2017 at 1:11 am | Video

A clean matrix is a happy matrix. In multiplayer Tetris, if you can perfectly clear all the blocks from your screen, it sends your opponent half a screen of garbage. Tetris art guru Shuey shows us that it’s possible to perfect clear with your first ten tetriminos every time. With clever usage of twists, the hold piece, and strategy, you can do it too!

Lyre Le Temps

Wednesday, March 1st, 2017 at 2:30 am | Audio | Video

Lyre Le Temps takes the electro swing sampling of Caravan Palace and Parov Stelar even more mainstream, and it sounds like a million dollars. This song, Prohibition Swing, twists electro swing into an upbeat modern pop song with a great hook. Other tracks push further into hip hop, rock, and industrial styles. I wouldn’t be surprised to hear this band at a party someday.

PAX South 2017 – Puyo Puyo Tetris Tournament Finals

Wednesday, February 1st, 2017 at 1:50 am | Video

Puyo Puyo Tetris‘s Swap mode is really good! It’s 25 seconds of Tetris, then 25 seconds of Puyo Puyo, back and forth until someone loses one of the games. It’s like chessboxing. At PAX South 2017, I put my Tetris stacking up against Puyo master heavenchai in this intense final match. Watch for the twists!

Edit: Here’s another upload that used the replays I saved during the second and third games. I forgot to save the first game’s replay; sorry!

Tissot T-Touch Expert Solar with World Order

Monday, January 16th, 2017 at 3:00 am | Audio | Video

Anime Hell once again delivered the Japanese weirdness at Ohayocon. I expected that 2016’s Japanese commercials would be just as good as 2015’s. The one that surprised me was a Tissot watch ad as a music video for the band World Order’s song World Order. I wish all my clocks could sync up like this band. This reminds me of OK Go.
