Rockson Film Production

Monday, January 14th, 2019 at 11:43 pm | Video

We don’t often see movies from Ghana, but Rockson Emmanuel blesses us with these outrageous trailers that regularly feature at Anime Hell. He’s still working on it. Good for him! Get out there and create weird, cool stuff.

I’m questioning if the move to Tumblr last year was a good idea. My feeds are panicking about stuff getting flagged! Tumblr might suffer the same fate as other services Yahoo bought. It’s too much work to write the same post on WordPress and Tumblr, and all the linked text is lost on Facebook and Twitter cross-posts anyway.

Mystery Skulls Animated

Tuesday, October 16th, 2018 at 8:00 pm | Video

Mystery Ben makes animated music videos for Mystery Skulls songs. Ghost could have been a simple Scooby Doo parody, but every second seems to have important details for TV Tropes to analyze. This attracted a far bigger fandom than the official live action music video, prompting Mystery Ben to continue the series…

With the success of Ghost, Mystery Ben planned several more videos to continue the story and flesh out the characters. This second video is Freaking Out. I’m sure they could all talk out their problems if they all weren’t constantly bobbing their heads to the music. We had to wait for 2½ years for the next one…

A few days ago, Mystery Ben dropped the long-awaited third chapter, Hellbent. This fast-paced multi-level revenge quest goes above and beyond what anyone would expect from a music video. There are loads of callbacks to the first two videos. Please don’t make us wait two more years to resolve the next cliffhanger!

TerminalMontage – Something About Super Mario 64

Saturday, September 29th, 2018 at 2:40 am | Video

Super Mario 64 is fun to speedrun and fun to break. YouTube animator TerminalMontage captures this pretty accurately in this animated 0-star speedrun. I’m heading to GDEX to play some local indie games and break them, of course. EDIT: GDEX got too serious and too expensive, so I actually didn’t go.

Yuumei – Glass Instruments

Tuesday, September 25th, 2018 at 11:11 pm | Image

I'm going to stop writing mouseover text for images. Tumblr doesn't support it, and it doesn't work right on mobile browsers. Sorry for anyone who's been waiting 11 months for the next mouseover text. Maybe I'll come up with another Easter egg to replace this.

Hi, blog! It’s been a couple months! I almost forgot how to do these posts. Yuumei, designer of the original Cat Ear headphones, painted some musical instruments made of glass. I wonder how they would sound. Crystal flutes exist, and I imagine string instruments would sound pretty normal too. When hitting a drum with water in it, the air and the water would make two different sounds at the same time. Then there’s the fish tank piano, which would take physical strength to play but make super deep, eerie tones. Underwater performances are possible!
