Chon

Is it my turn yet? I think we all could use something relaxing. Chon is an instrumental band that plays math-rock riffs like Dysrhythmia, but they’re…chill. They’re even cool enough to post an entire album on YouTube, so dig right in.

Beakmallusion: Free Energy Devices

Wednesday, June 1st, 2016 at 2:20 am | Video

Beakman’s World was my favorite science show growing up, so when I heard Beakman himself appeared in a fan remake, I already knew I was reblogging it. Captain Disillusion nails the goofy vibe of the show while dropping the debunking knowledge and showing off his professional video effects skills. Somehow, he keeps this up level of quality in all his videos. Consider me hooked!

Keiichi Matsuda – Hyper-Reality

Tuesday, May 31st, 2016 at 4:00 am | Video

Oh no, is this how augmented reality will end up? Graphic designer Keiichi Matsuda imagines Medellin, Colombia with a glitchy layer of graphics, apps, and ads covering it from top to bottom. These things are fine on my phone because they go away when I put my phone away. With augmented reality, there’s no escape.

Psychostick – Obey the Beard

Thursday, May 26th, 2016 at 2:50 am | Audio | Video

Spotify’s Discover Weekly playlist hit me with another doozy today. Comedy metal band Psychostick really wants me to grow a beard. Now, I respect a good beard and I want to improve myself, but I’m afraid that a beard would look weird on me. It’s too much maintenance!

Eh, I’ll think about it.

Lagwagon – May 16

Monday, May 16th, 2016 at 1:34 pm | Audio | Video

Most of what I know about punk rock came from the Tony Hawk games. I’ve been listening to punk on SiriusXM and Spotify and I keep recognizing songs from Tony Hawk games. This one’s from THPS2. That one’s from Underground 2. That one’s from Downhill Jam. I didn’t realize that these songs were icons in the wider punk rock community, to the point that May 16 is now “Lagwagon Day“. Is it like 20, November for Bemani fans?
