David Farmer and Sound Design

A great article on sound design by David Farmer. It's about perception of sound and how his confidence in his recording was boosted by a great little accident.

Aweful Cover



I don't know the story behind this, I don't want to know the story behind this, I don't even want to watch the entire video. Point being, this is the worst cover of any band of all time (as far as I know)

Thanks Autry, I guess.

Daily Sound 8: Smashed a $50 cake

Cake by kaiwolf26

Cake with effects by kaiwolf26

I destroyed a cake with my bare hands and caught the sound. It's not that impressive. I did run into the problem that I was doing it on a tin bucket, and in order to get more of the cake sound, I EQ'd the track to bring out more of the buttery and snapping sounds.

It was kinda a BS job because I could have fine tuned more with the EQ, spent more time removing clips, and probably brought the sound of my breath down with a little work.

I would like to point out that Elmo has a mustache, in fact, his entire body is covered in hair.
Also, don't ask why I was watching Sesame Street's youtube's channel
(Thanks Devour)

Elmo Wearing A Mustache

Now for my contribution: Notice that Elmo is wearing a mustache about some 10-20years earlier. Elmo has never been the same since he had his memory wiped. :C

NSFW?
There's no nudity just so you know, although there's some implied sex jokes and swearing. It's definitely one of the stranger things I've seen on the internet.
Thanks Shelby for the link.

Update: Here's an episode of The Cinema Snob that explains a bit about the origin, and for that matter covers a mildly SFW synopsis of it's sister "film" "Super Hornio Bros"
The whole movie company specifically does art snuff films and porn apparently.

Anthony Francisco Schepperd

Anthony Schepperd is my hero. His animation style really lends well to the music and over all leave a strong impression. I can't wait to see his projects in the future.

Something about GHXYK2 has always interested me. I think it's due to their style being in the worst taste possible, and the hard to understand plot lines. There's a small art scene that follows him and they put out some zines now and then.

Jan Svankmajer is one of my favorite Slavic animators. He's done several amazing stop motion films such as "Tma/svetlo/tma (Darkness/Light/Darkness)" and "Meat Love." Check it out, you won't be disappointed.

Coma is a nice little game/ story. It takes about 15min-30min to beat, and if you have that much time, try it out.

Cheap Eats: Oregon Culinary Institute

Cheap Eats: Oregon Culinary Institute

Dude, I didn't realize until now, but my school offers a three course lunch for 9 dollars. That's pretty awesome. Also, the food is really good (I try the culinary student's food after class now and then, and I can personally vouch for the baking program's food.) If you're in Portland, and want a really nice cheap fancy lunch, I'd recommend checking it out!

Life Is Flashing Before Your Eyes
A nice little exert from Tony Vegas' Animated Acidburn Flashback Tabu. Vince Collins is a wonderful animator that did work between the 1960's and 1980's. Too bad he doesn't do work anymore. I strongly encourage y'all to check out more of his stuff, but keep in mind not all of it is work friendly.

Eating Glass
Ever wondered how people eat glass without cutting up their gastronomic tracks? Well, this here explains everything. But to keep it short, chew up the glass really fine into sand size pieces and swallow. If you do it wrong, you'll need major surgery, do it right, and you'll be a hero.

YouTube - The Chipophone | Diigo

The Chipophone
Linus Akesson just released a video about his new home made synthesizer the Chipophone. What a beautiful machine, I think he will be the envy of the 8 bit world. Speaking of which, stick around, I'll be posting about a couple 8 bit bands soon



I'm a little curious if this is real or not due to the sound quality changing any time he plays. I want to believe.

Thanks Dangerous Minds for the link.

Lobsterotica

A LOBSTER HYPNOTIZED!
Hypnosis? Stroking off lobsters in heat? I'm not quite sure if you would call this bestiality or custatiallity.
Yeah, it's a little messed up, but it's well worth the read.

Messer Chups russian extrordinares.

Messer Chups is the latest installment of the Russian of musician Oleg Gitarkin. I'll take my best stab at describing this music: A surf rock, B-movie, progressive electronic band. Messer Chups is a spin off of the band "Messer fur Frau Muller" another band I'd recommend adding to your collection.
Definitely one of the best parts of listening to this band is trying to figure out what they sampled from. Being a big fan of B-movies and obscure music, you hear great references to classic composers, old horror movies (especially Ed Wood), and a number of obscure french favorites. If there are any fans out there of the Books, you might get a kick out of this.
Most Messer Chups albums are readily available on e-music, so I assume it's available on most other music buying platforms.



Credit's earned where credit's due, thanks Winfoxi for your help.

Sherlock Holmes

A. It sucked
B. I thought I was watching the British remake of national treasure

Saturday, April 17, 2010

Kick Ass:

Here are my problems with the movie:
  • Nicolas Cage does a good job, but really doesn't capture the character I learned to know and love from the comics. He seems like a happy psychotic guy rather than the gruff burly caring father. Also, allot of details about "Big Daddy" were cut out. When hit girl mentions the briefcase with 3 million dollars, she doesn't explain it's full of comics. Also, they left out a crucial speech from the father explaining why he raised his daughter the way he did.
  • I don't like how shiny the director wanted everything to be. Everywhere anyone went the scenes looked like sets. To be fair, it is a comic book movie, but I felt a bit alienated by this.
  • For a 8 comic book series being stretched out to a 2 hour movie it seemed like they would have had more time to elaborate that lots of time passes in the movie. For example, the training montage, in the hospital, and the dating scenes were a little rushed.
Here are my highlights:
  • Holy crap, the fighting scenes were well done. Jackie Chan would be proud. Normally I don't feel comfortable laughing at deaths of villains, but I really couldn't help myself, the comedic deaths were just too well done.
  • Chloe Moretz (Hit Girl) is just flat out fantastic. She really captures the character from the comic perfectly. Just about everything about her is perfectly done for this movie. Imagine a 12 year old version of kill bill.
  • Aaron Johnson (Kick Ass) does a pretty good job. He's easy to identify with, but most of all, fights like a wimp. The way he fights makes you love his character. I think any actor could have taken his place and I couldn't have cared less, but his awkward movements are worth mentioning.
  • Finally, the writing is fantastic. Not the comic to movie translation writing, but the core writing in the comic. The original writer pays tribute to the different archetypes of characters. Kick Ass is Spider man, Hit Girl is "The Bride" from kill bill, Big Daddy is the punisher, the list goes on.
All and all, a good movie. Could have been better, but the story was hard to screw up.
3.5/5
