Brendon Small of “Metalocalypse” and “Home Movies” on Adult Swim has shredded out a awesome rendition of the theme song to “Game of Thrones”.
He broke on through.
One the last pillars of the Elven days of music has crossed the over the seas and will finally will get an answer to how Jim Morrison died.
Ray was awesome. I can only speak as a fan and spectator, since none of us knew the man, and that did claim to him I doubt ever really did.
I imagine a conversation between him Jim Morrison would go something like this…
DEEP WITHIN THE NETHERSPACE OF DEAD MUSICANS
Jim Morrison: Ray! Hey, man…Ray over here!
Ray Manzarek: Jim? My God is that really you? You haven’t aged a day.
Jim Morrison: That’s because I’m dead man, but look at you. You got all old.
Ray Manzarek: What happened to you in Paris, Jim?
Jim Morrison: Well, to be honest Ray, it wasn’t till I got here shortly after that I started figuring out that I don’t do so go by myself. And besides some bad chocolate I found in the trash, some Absinthe and few painted ladies…well, anyway have you met Ol’ Dirty Bastard?
Ray Manzarek: No Jim, I haven’t.
Jim Morrison: No worries, I’ll show you around. Did they really make a movie about us?
Here’s a video that’s sets up my little monologue.
And a music lesson!
Scottish singer Emeli Sande has smashed The Beatles record of 62 consecutive weeks in the U.K.’s Official Albums Chart top 10. Sande’s album Our Version of Events is holding steady on the charts for the 63rd week straight.
“It feels quite surreal to even have your name mentioned in the same sentence as The Beatles,” Sande said according to The Independent. “For a record to stay there for so long it means that people have connected with it so that’s how I’m enjoying celebrating this record.”
Nearly 50 years ago, The Beatles set the original record with 62 weeks in the top ten for their album Please Please Me.
“I’m so happy that so many people have connected with the stories and the songs on the record, this really is our version of events now,” the 26-year-old stated according to MTV. “I’d like to say thank you to everyone that has bought, played or shared my music in the last year, without your support this would never have been possible.”
This is the debut album for Sande and it has spawned three singles – “Read All About It,” “Next to Me,” and “Beneath Your Beautiful” – as well as numerous awards including the 2013 Brit Award for “Best Album of the Year” and “Best Female Solo Artist.”
What’s next for he intrepid musician? According to The Independent, the artist would like to make name for herself state side.
There are a trillion violinists on YouTube trying to rack up views and likes on the site, but few stick out in my mind like Jason Yang. The guy’s got talent, and it’s no surprise to me he keeps popping up in “you gotta listen to this” music videos.
Above he’s crafted a combination piece that uses music from The Dark Knight, Game of Thrones and The Hobbit. It’s a freaking fantastic piece of music, employing the best moments from all three tracks. All he had to do was clone himself 14 times.
I won’t lie.
I’ve never been a fan of Lauryn Hill the singer, because I knew Lauryn Hill the emcee first.
Lauryn Hill apparently owes a lot in taxes, and has signed a new record deal just pay them off.
It’s not ironic that is called the “Compulsory Mix”, considering that she was forced to rushed this song out by the label. Here’s what she had to say:
“Here is a link to a piece that I was ‘required’ to release immediately, by virtue of the impending legal deadline. I love being able to reach people directly, but in an ideal scenario, I would not have to rush the release of new music… but the message is still there. In light of Wednesday’s tragic loss (of former label mate Chris Kelly), I am even more pressed to YELL this to a multitude that may not understand the cost of allowing today’s unhealthy paradigms to remain unchecked!”
This song is a self revelation that I am truly jaded without a shadow of a doubt. For the past decade I’ve a bitched and mowed about the failures of Hip Hop and how we should have a renaissance so to speak, and here I am faced with exactly what I wanted and yet I’m shrugging my shoulders.
It’s not you L Boogie, it’s me. Even though this song isn’t completed by your standards it by far crushes anything that’s out now or has come out (at least in the mainstream) for the last 15 years or so.
Whether it be too little, too late, or right on time it matters not.
Before this trailer, there was darkness…
really can’t wait!
