Why, Ben, why?

I remember seeing the original scene for the first time and that was all I could think. Revision time:

Next station, Synthwave (I heard where we’re going is actually closer to Retrowave, but whatever):

Tomorrow, I will blast this in the Crown (New! Improved! Exhaust Note!) with all the windows down and melt into the Tatooine sunset.

Heisei Arigato

Alt. view:

Apparently he just walked off when the boat docked.

That’s the Ebisubashi bridge (Nampabashi/Hikkakebashi) under the famous Glico neon sign, where I spent approximately 0.004% of my total time in Japan. If I remember correctly, that was just enough time for me or my friends to throw someone else off that bridge… Was it me? I was pretty OK at drunk judo… Was it Dave? Was it on TV? For the life of me, I can’t even remember the name of the guy we threw off… I remember he was a real ass, though.

State of the Art Wetsuit

Most of the comments I’ve seen about this on YouTube and embedded sites are either great praise (well-deserved), or are questions about the black thong/panties. So with no further ado, this is an explanation for them:

It’s kind of a clever design because it’s so distinctive and bothers so many people! I kind of doubt there would be so many complaints if the diver was female…

Hmm, it doesn’t stand out so much on the gray suit.

CREAM Piano

Wow, this title just gave me flashbacks of my Thai nicknames research… Anyway, this piano is firmly stuck in my head now. I can leave the player on loop, go teach a class, and come back to hear the piano still haunting my living room. Awesome.

But hey, you know, if you’re going to go Wu-tang you have to remember where it came from as well:

We should also remember some of the places it ended up going as well:

The Amerigo Gazaway track at top just dropped today. You can see his work here: Wu​-​Tang Clan – C​.​R​.​E​.​A​.​M. (Amerigo Gazaway Rework)

Delfonific!

I’m on a kick looking for BGM tonight, because I need to start writing chapters 4 & 5 of my master’s dissertation tomorrow. I will be aided by my trusty steed, Dragon Naturally Speaking and all of these badass beats. Sometimes Lofi radio on YouTube gets old…

And speaking of steeds, I’m planning selling my trusty CRF250M to help pay off Max’s upcoming trip to the states… Which looks likes it’s really gonna happen.

Where art thou, Casiotone?

All throughout university, I lusted after a Groovebox… the object of my affections has changed several times since then. Not that I have the skills or anything, I just want to watch the cow:

These used to retail for $1,000 when they were available.

Here’s another great video, with even more cow:

I actually don’t want the OP-1, I want a dedicated cow display with maybe one button to make it chew and kick start digestion.
