Elfen Lied Lilium

This song comes from an anime series called “Elfen Lied” which is one of the most violent animes I think I have ever scene. That being said I think this might possibly be one of the most beautiful and tragic pieces of music I have ever heard in my life. I’ve talked a lot about music in Nerd culture before especially in our Pod Casts but this is a great example of how great music can come from any type of entertainment. I love it’s use to provoke emotion in the audience and there are many different versions of this song but they are essentially all the same with slight differences.

Where ever you are looking at this from I want you to take a moment, push play, and close your eyes while you listen to this. I would be very interested to hear where this song takes you or what it makes you think about. I love to draw or write while listening to music like this but of course you do have to be in the right mood for it. As always leave your comments or thoughts below or on our Facebook Page.


Building Cloud’s Real Life Buster Sword!

I honestly didn’t think it could be done but Man at Arms proved me wrong. I love the quality of work that comes out of this guy not to mention just all the icon game and movie weapons he creates. This time, he actually went and built Cloud’s sword from Final Fantasy VII. This thing has a 6 foot blade and is said to weigh anywhere from 70 to 80 lbs. That’s a lot of sword and obviously not very practical, but it looks pretty Bad Ass! It takes 2 people just to lift it up high enough to get a good downward swing with it. I don’t think the blade cuts very well but the sheer weight of it alone will crush whatever is underneath it.

Anyways check out this awesome video from “Man At Arms” and “Awe Me” and always leave us your thoughts below or in the comments section of our Facebook Page.
