MY 11 YEAR OLD MADE A YOUTUBE ACCOUNT I CANT BREATHE???????
this video changed my life
So that’s what Skrillex looks like.
The greatest skit in music video history.
legit my fave thing
I may be a 34 year old white man from England, but “WHADDABOUT ALLA DIIISSSS? *hand gesture*” is now my new catchphrase.
This is my first new music (themes for silly YouTube shows aside) in over a year. Every single part of this is an accident, as I fished around my synths & plugins to try to find the sounds I was aiming for, and found myself listening to what you now hear, going “Well, it’s not what I was aiming for, but damn if this isn’t half bad…”
Hugely unfinished, sure, but I’ve been listening to this little section on a seamless loop in my DAW (still using Reaper & loving it, BTW) for half an hour and I just want more. That groove has burned itself into my brain now. I’m taking this as a good sign.
When I figure out what to do next, and then find time somehow to do it, I’ll post an update.
Just hold on for the chorus. Love the way Hurts’ sound has matured since the last album.
Musical Interlude of the Day
If you thought electronic music shows were just a guy standing quietly behind a laptop, then take a minute to admire M4SON1C’s Launchpad wizardry.
Ooooh, it’s been a bit since we heard one of these stories, but I’m greeted this morning by the record industry once again shitting their pants in anger at the internet.
Why, exactly? Well, Google are going to make music available through Google Play here in the UK (something they already do in the US). My Samsung is already integrated with 7Digital’s store, but Google want to roll out a similar service to all Android users, and then of course get their cut of that action. No real surprise. I’m surprised, actually, that it hasn’t happened sooner.
So what’s the big deal?
Well, the labels, via the BPI, are today complaining that you can still Google for illegal downloads.
One of the biggest companies in the world opens a store selling your stuff in millions of people’s pockets, and all you can do is bitch about it?
This sort of shit should have stopped surprising me years ago, but really, wow.
“It doesn’t make sense,” whine the industry. Yeah, if piracy is such a huge, insurmountable problem that’s making it impossible to sell records then you’re absolutely right, it doesn’t make a lick of sense for Google to try selling records.
Or maybe, just maybe, Google don’t think that a bit of file sharing is going to be such a big deal, and that they can still turn a nice tidy profit even without doing a damn thing to stop those naughty pirates.
Maybe Google have thought this one through, just a bit. They’re probably fairly good at data analysis, don’t you think?
Ahhh, Music Industry. Only you guys could hate another legitimate shop selling your stuff. It’s been a while, but it’s always nice to be able to shoot a hole through your bullshit.
Or, actually, this would be a pretty successful way to leave me helpless at your feet too…

Kickass Karaoke Girl of the Day: This random girl in a random grocery store takes the mic at a random karaoke machine and absolutely kills Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You.”
Seriously. Kills it.
Well, I guess now I’ve seen this I can never perform karaoke again.
