Sacrilegious, Precious, But We Likes It

I should detest this, but I’m actually loving it in a weird way. Watch for yourselves:

I was seconds from running away into a corner when the refrain came on (you shall not pass, etc). Something about the way it is mixed together just struck me. When I first found it here, I did not expect to come away humming it.

Well. Erm. Yeah…

Before any words come out of me, I present the following without tainted views:

I am still unsure what to make of it. Not sure if I really like it or despise it with a fiery passion. It is no secret that I love Japan. It is less of a secret that I like metal. I like J-Rock too, now I think of it.

But this is… I’m not sure if it’s the come down / caffeine hangover that has attacked me this morning, but this has made my world go sideways, down a little, and then lurch upwards again.

Is it the devil’s spawn, released on us unsuspecting gaijin with a view to take over our lands? Is it the damned sweetest thing you ever did see? Or is it somewhere in the middle?

I must admit that I am humming the above track in my head as I type. There could even be a little swaying. Okay, full-on bopping. But I feel a little bit dirty for it.

Try this out whilst you’re there. Looking at the group’s website, I think this may be in fact plugging their album, due on 7 March 2012.

The fox sign is something I may take up in place of ‘the horns’, just to mess with people. Although, I was using this 20-odd years ago as a sort of imaginary friend named ‘Fingerfox’. And not sure why I just told that to the world.

Ahem… Let me know your thoughts in the comments. About the band, not my childhood.


Hope for Humanity (sort of…)

Just before bed I happened upon this via MthruF and had two main thought lines.

1) That poor girl didn’t expect this, I reckon.

2) What a way to prank someone.

Most pranks involve various levels of embarrassment, usually through some form of mockery or unfriendly set-up.

Not for Giorgio is this type of tomfoolery. The fact that he is so polite makes it somewhat sweet and actually is more likely to have put a bright edge on the order taker’s day.

Next time you want to be a bit random and silly, don’t harass your roommate. Sing.


Quote of the Week

Sadly, nothing has caught my ear this week, so why not send some suggestions this way?

Anything you heard made you laugh? Leave a comment and it shall be included in next week’s poll.

Rather than the anticipated poll, I leave you with this instead:

There are worlds out there where the sky is burning, and the sea is asleep, and the rivers dream. People made of smoke and cities made of song. Somewhere there’s danger, somewhere there’s injustice, somewhere else the tea’s getting cold. Come on, Ace; we’ve got work to do! (The Doctor’s final words, in “Survival”)
