Manson Omega Figure
Omega by Fewture. Designed by Yasushi Nirasawa and sculpted by Yoshihiro Saito with cooperation of Manson himself.
This is one of those figures I had for quite a while now but I'm wanting to do reviews of at least my favorites in my collection. Well this one is a unique one to me and I'm happy I got it while it was still reasonable and available at retail rather than marked up. This is of Manson in his Mechanical Animals "Omega" guise. These figures where originally only available in japan but where later made available worldwide. It says at the article about the figures that Manson chose japanese designers because they are more "daring" than toy companies in the US. I'm not sure I would classify them as more daring than Macfarlane or something since they didn't do anything to censor the designs of some of the movie monsters they did such as Sil from Species... her figure still had the big biomechanical nipples and such and nothing in this line is anywhere near as racy as that.. but I digress...

That latest parody of his "Perform this Way" got me wanting to see some more of his newer music videos. They don't yet seem to be on youtube. However, a lot of his old school stuff seems to have been uploaded and in particular I wanted to post this one here. Why? for some reason I never seen it before and it's of a song that I used to have the album for on casette tape and I used to listen to that tape quite a bit when I first discovered Al as a child in the 80's yet again I never actually seen this music video up until now. But the video is EXACTLY what I what I had in mind when thinking of a music video for that song. It doesn't parody a particular song from them but is a Devo parody in general and I like it quite a bit.... a lot of eye candy in this beholder's eye of the wacky\weird\funny variety going on in this music video:



I was always amused by lines like "Mashed potatoes can be your friends!"

I've noticed that the way I listen to music has changed a lot during the years. Before computers got full music capability and especially before MP3 listening to Music used to be an activity all to its own. This was especially true when I was a child and I used to listen to music on vinyl. I used to put on my records... turn them up loud and sing along in my room. There was a long stretch of time when I would pop in a cassette tape or later a CD and just sit there and listen to it from start to finish.

This all changed when music started migrating to the computer... continued inside... )

I discovered this group a few months ago when NIN released a sampler of their "Lights in the Sky" tour for their album "The Slip". This group is\was touring with NIN. They had a different song in the sampler (Crimewave) but it got me interested in hearing more so I got their self titled album. Then I discovered this song which has become my favorite song from them so far off of that album. The song actually sounds better when you are listening to it on the album but you get the idea from this music video. This song may end up reaching number one in my most played in iTunes list. I like how some of the sounds they use sound like old NES music.

Well, it looks like Lars Ulrich the drummer from Metallica is still saying: "Interwebs" bad essentially. He's complaining that the internet gives the complainers a louder voice as they where complaining that the Metallica tracks in Rock Band sound better than the tracks on their latest CD.

I haven't liked Metallica in years. Ever since the whole Napster fiasco. I used to be a huge fan when I was in junior high. I even used to wear their t-shirts a lot. But it still amuses me when I read about things like this.... especially from comments such as this:

"People bitching on the internet about Lars bitching about people bitching...on the internet...classic!"

I'm staying away from their albums and I wouldn't even download their latest much less buy it.

I watched "Across The Universe" tonight in its cable premiere. That movie always looked interesting to me when I would see the previews for it at the dollar movies a while back. I liked it, although it was pretty long and it dragged on at some spots like musicals tend to do. It also takes a long time to get to the song I was most looking forward to, "Hey Jude". The one they always played in the previews. The music was the best part of the movie it was very well done in my opinion.

There are quite a few scenes that are beautiful and have good special effects. I don't know if I would say the plot is the best but they did a fair job of crafting it around The Beatles songs they chose. I recorded it in my DVR so I can watch it again later.

This movie was less like a broadway production than movies like "Chicago", "Moulin Rouge!" and "The Producers" and that's actually a good thing in my opinion. Out of all four of those movies I like this movie, and "The Producers" the best (especially since John Barrowman is in it, he rocks!). Then out of the last ones I prefer "Chicago" over "Moulin Rouge!" The latter having some good things going for it but I can't stand its plot. The former is less cringe worthy. But they aren't the topic of this so I digress.. I liked "Across The Universe".
