How can a video be so bad and so good at the same time? By the way Freddie Mercury is undeniable.

I Hate Guitar Hero But I Guess DJ Hero Might Be Alright

22 Nov

I’ve always disliked the Guitar Hero/Rock band phenomenon. Honestly, if you are going to spend hours getting sick at Guitar Hero, why wouldn’t you just spend the time actually learning how to play guitar? You could be a pretty decent guitar player by the end of it and maybe, just maybe, one day you can write music that is good enough to be posted on Yuppie Dance Party…

Does anyone realize that Guitar Hero’s software platform is basically a carbon copy of Dance Dance Revolution which was fun, admittedly silly and at least got you to exercise with the pad.

Back in the day TKSama used to play DDR but used a controller instead of dancing (yes you can actually do that) and it was undeniably lame. Guitar Hero for all intensive purposes is an XBox controller shaped like a guitar…awesome! At the end of the day the only thing lamer than playing DDR with an Xbox controller is playing with with an XBox controller shaped like a guitar and acting like there is actual skill involved. I haven’t tried but I’m betting you can play DDR with the Guitar Hero guitar because they are THE SAME. And yes you are just playing DDR with Guns N Roses instead of Captain Jack

Check him out with that awesome red hat!

So when DJ Hero came out, my skepticism remained but now as I know more, I’m starting to wonder if DJ Hero could actually teach someone the skills to be a decent elementary DJ. After all with DJ’ing its not like you just can practice Stairway to Heaven until you are ready to to move on to another song. So yes, I’ll admit that I might be coming around a little for DJ Hero. I’ve never played but it sounds like it teaches how to mashup a song, crossfade and learn some techniques from DJ greats like Daft Punk. Guitar Hero still sucks though and I’m not reversing on that.

This mashup is from DJ Hero and is a mix that Daft Punk did for the game using “Da Funk” and some other song by a band named Queen

In Conclusion:

DDR, Daft Punk, Captain Jack and Queen= Awesome

Playing DDR with a controller=lame. Guitar Hero=lamer

And for DJ Hero the jury is still out

The Flaming Lips cover Bohemian Rhapsody, trippiness ensues

17 Jun

Ever since I became obsessed with Queen in 3rd grade this song has had a special place in my heart. Its rock, its a ballad, it makes you laugh, it makes you cry. Then the Flaming Lips decided to cover this already extremely weird and out there song. You really have to listen to it several times to understand it.

Oh yeah and I totally forgot how amazing the original music video is.

I see a little silhouette of a man...
