Civilization, in fact, grows more and more maudlin and hysterical; especially under democracy it tends to degenerate into a mere combat of crazes; the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary. - H.L. Mencken

Apparently Rick Astley is "back" - eg, he's posting stuff on YouTube. Always nice to see artists from my past still around doing things.
He seems to have become a bit more of a baritone (?) in his age. His cover of this song isn't bad, not bad at all.  The funny/adorable thing to me tho is that if you watch his dance arm movements, at times you can see a certain meme-dance wanting to come out... :lol:

This is the greatest song that has the lyric "Her placenta falls to the floor" in it.

I'd say the answer to that question is kind of like the answer to "who's the sucker in this poker game?"*

peer gynt is the unapologetic narcissist and liar who follows the advice o' the troll king, wisdom which actual belonged to shakespeare by way o' polonius-- "to thine own self be true."

keep in mind, polonius were not advising self-reflection and moral integrity. to read thus is a modern perversion o' the original meaning. in this one instance, trolls, and the modern day equivalent sitting behind the resolute desk, better understand polonius than do modern audiences.

look out for number one.

regardless, in the hall of the mountain king is the music we hear when we reflect on 2020.

...

and the line rider bit is kinda nifty too.

HA! Good Fun!

i got weird friends who supply me with those things

 

I'm the enemy, 'cause I like to think, I like to read. I'm into freedom of speech, and freedom of choice. I'm the kinda guy that likes to sit in a greasy spoon and wonder, "Gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the jumbo rack of barbecue ribs with the side-order of gravy fries?" I want high cholesterol! I wanna eat bacon, and butter, and buckets of cheese, okay?! I wanna smoke a Cuban cigar the size of Cincinnati in the non-smoking section! I wanna run naked through the street, with green Jell-O all over my body, reading Playboy magazine. Why? Because I suddenly may feel the need to, okay, pal? I've SEEN the future. Do you know what it is? It's a 47-year-old virgin sitting around in his beige pajamas, drinking a banana-broccoli shake, singing "I'm an Oscar Meyer Wiene"

I'm posting these largely to comment that: I never liked this song all that much, but after YouTubing-around, I've discovered I like it a lot better when one, it's sung by a male, and two, in any language that's not English.  :lol:  My fave is full Japanese tho (2nd video), I've had it on background-repeat all day - maybe I've watched too many anime.  :shifty:

Surprised Trump isn't using this in ads.

Crime City Nights - Cyberpunk / Dark Synthwave - YouTube

Beautiful.  Perhaps the retrograde theme of Cyberpunk could develop into a psychotically niche fanbase after all, regardless of the inflated hype surrounding it.

It's one of those win-win scenarios.  The game is overhyped and bound to let down quite a few people but at the same time it's bound to pick up quite a few followers and fanatics post-release.

I think we're living in the age of greatness-in-irony.

Just some teenage memories resurfacing...

Double post... a Norwegian/Danish/German band playing something... not sure what. Instruments used from the wiki:

  • drums, including one with horse skin painted with human blood, two drums with deerskin and a drum with goatskin
  • bones, including a human forearm bone and deer bones
  • a buffalo horn rattle
  • a clay rattle with human ashes
  • a Hindu ritual bell
  • antiques from temples
  • a reconstructed silver cup from the Viking Age
  • a ravanahatha (an ancient Indian instrument)
  • other rattles, whistles and percussive instruments

Time for some northern European culture :skull:

 

Edit to add a second video:

given the string o' gop court losses...

the game were a curious album for queen. this may be apocryphal, but is our understanding that michael jackson convinced freddie mercury and his bandmates that a record that people could dance to is what were needed to take queen to the next level.

HA! Good Fun!
