There is no doubt that one of the biggest things to come out of the 80s is the mega franchise known as the Transformers. They’ve had five major theatrical movie releases including the animated movie back in the 80s, numerous video games and TV incarnations, and now it looks like they are trying to break out into the music industry. It has been announced that a brand new music album based on the Robots in Disguise is in the works and will be available for purchase very soon.
In my opinion nothing goes together better than beer and video games. Even after all the beer is gone you can still find a way to make the two work together. For example, in the video below a group of guys get together and bring to life some of our favorite video game theme songs using empty beer bottles. I’m pretty sure you will recognize all of the songs they play and it will definitely give you that feeling of nostalgia.
So we’ve seen a lot of iconic heroes battle it out in epic fan duels, but this one is a little different. This time the Merc with a mouth and arguably the most bad ass bounty hunter in the galaxy battle it out with words instead of weapons in an epic rap battle. That’s right Deadpool goes head to head with Boba Fett and the results are pretty awesome. The hardest part of this whole thing is deciding who won because there can be no draws in a battle to the death.
As most of you out there know I am a huge music lover and that goes for all different types of music. A couple years ago I was introduced to Vocaloids which are basically computer generated voice programs that sings what the user types. It may not be familiar to some of you but chances are you’ve seen one of the most popular Vocaloid stars in the world Hatsune Miku at some point in recent years. She is a huge star in Japan and increasing in popularity in the U.S. So much in fact that last year Lady Gaga actually used her for the opening act of her live shows.
How do you make an already wildly popular theme even better? Add bright colorful lights and awesome music of course. Darth Punk is that latest visual and audio feast from InfectiousDesigner. It got me hooked immediately because it combines two of my favorite things in life; Star Wars and bright LED lights. Seriously, I’d add awesome neon lighting to everything if I could. Something about it just adds a really cool extra element as you can plainly see in the music video below.
Oh man I love the Conan movies and this meme made me laugh. Those movies were great in so many ways, but some of the dialog is what is really memorable. Personally they are some of my favorite movies (despite some of the cheesy dialog) and to this day I love quoting them. I know I’m not the only one. Anyway, I pray to Crom that you have a great Wednesday Nerd Nation, but if he does not listen, then to Hell with him!
Ok, let me start off by saying that this is NOT an anime review and that this anime (Gantz) series is not for everyone. I just wanted to share the opening theme with you because if you haven’t heard it yet then you are really missing out. I’m a huge lover of all kinds of music especially anime songs, and right now this is one of my favorites. I have no idea what they are singing about, but this song definitely gets me pumped and I’m pretty sure that most of you (especially if you love anime) will love this opening theme song just as much as I do.
So I found this cool app for those of you that are vocaloid or anime fans. Many of you will recognize Hatsune Miku who is a widely popular vocaloid star from Japan. She has her own cool app where you can take pictures with her in it like the one I took this morning. She has different outfits, different poses, and she is completely three dimensional. There is a lot of customization options for her like changing her facial expressions to pretty much anything you can think of. Anyway it’s a pretty fun little app and it’s out for both Android and IOS. Be sure to check out Hatsune Miku’s mobile picture app called Mikuture.
