Spin that record DJ Hero

October 1, 2009 at 12:06 am (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , )

DJ Hero looks interesting, not as good as Guitar Hero but interesting.   Game play looks similar to guitar hero. Hit the right notes on time.  Thing is you’re mixing songs in this game.  The songs look good, but the mixes are going to carry the game.  If they aren’t good then the game won’t be either.  I’m hooked on the Guitar Hero franchise I  may get this when its used and cheap, but right know I’m not planning on it.  I’m still thinking about getting Guitar Hero 5, because I haven’t bought it yet.

If you played it what do you think?

Rocking German Bands

Lately I’ve noticed a good number of German bands trying to make it in America.  The problem with a lot of bands trying to make it here is the accent and language.  Americans want to listen to their songs in English and don’t want it to sound foreign.  The countries that do the best with sending there music here are of course England and then Sweden.   There have been German bands such as The Scorpions who have made it big in America, but not many.  I would like to have more make it.  Here are a few that are making an attempt, as far as I can see.

Cinema Bizarre love songs (they kill me)  An anime inspired band that opened for Lady Gaga during her Fame Ball Tour.

Polarkreis 18  allein allein, the colour of snow  In the process of releasing their first album in America.

Tokio Hotel monsoon Had an English language album released and won some awards over here.

I also like oomph, enomine, and rammstein, but I don’t think any of these groups are making moves here.  Besides these groups are older.

If you listen to German rock.  Who are some of your favorites and what do you think their chances of making in America are?

Eminem how much TV do you watch?

April 8, 2009 at 3:13 am (music) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Eminem’s got a new song out, We made you, and a video too.  It’s one of his songs that are hilarious because he’s making fun of everyone, but the quality of the song itself isn’t that good. Remember that one making fun of Michael Jackson not too long ago?  It’s the video that makes this song worth talking about.  There are parodies of  the Sarah Palin rap on Saturday Night Live (There’s a polar bear and an eskimo) and the Nailin’ Palin porn at the same time as he’s making fun of rock stars (he’s got a bret michaels look going on half the time).

And of course these aren’t nearly half of the parodies that he manages to squeeze in a song that isn’t but a few minutes in length. There’s Star Trek, Britney Spears, Lindsay and Sam. If its talked about often, he makes fun of it which makes me wonder what does he do with his time. Look at TMZ? Entertainment TV? Granted I know about this stuff too…, but it tends to leave my mind after a while.

So what do you think about this song and video?

Rock N’ Roll

June 13, 2008 at 11:20 pm (music) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

I think its kind of sad that it took the game guitar hero to make me really love rock. I’ve been moving in that direction over the past few years. I had to discover Led Zeppelin, The Doors, and Stevie Nicks after that I started liking classic rock more. Before I would describe me listen to rock as apreciation, now I can’t get enough guitars.  Not to mention that I now know the life stories of everyone from Jim Morrison, Slash, and Axel Rose. The weird thing is its not like I haven’t heard a lot of the songs I really really like now alot but now I love them and before I didn’t.  I would almost describe it as tone deafness or something going away, because now I feel like I can hear more in the music than I had before. 

So now while I draw I can listen to Guns N’ Roses, The Doors, Led Zeppelin, Heart, Van Halen, etc.  I’ve also noticed that I like what I dubbed “hippie rock” like The Doors, Blue Oyster Cult, and Jefferson Airplane. The 60s and 70s have the most awesome music ever.  What makes me somewhat sad is why didn’t I know about these groups so much earlier

Now your probably wondering what I used to listen to. Well that would be 80s, 90s, and music made now.  There is a movement now (which I like) for music that sounds like 60s.  I guess I’ll be talking more about this later so I’ll stop rambling.
