Talk Talk (Box)

Auto-Tune, talk box, vocoder…it’s all the same, right?


I used to think they all had the same purpose.  Then I checked out the Wikipedia page for Zapp, and learned otherwise.   Why was I reading about Zapp?  Here’s why:

Can’t get enough.  This is not Auto-Tune.  Sigh of relief.  Enjoy the song.


Alan Parsons Project 2.0

I’m on a real Gayngs kick right now.  “The Last Prom on Earth” is just a fantastic song.  Here’s a YouTube rarity–a high-quality live performance clip.  The song is a cover of The Alan Parsons Project (should I capitalize the ‘t’ in ‘the’?) and it’s pretty sweet.  I was hoping “Prom” had a video, but alas.  Anyway, enjoy.

I’d Like to Buy a Tip from the Producers

Color me unimpressed.  I want someone to get a puzzle with NO letters.

Slooo-ooo-ooow Jamz

Before last night, the only thing I thought of when I heard the phrase “chopped and screwed” was friggin’ T-Pain.  (But this video is actually kinda cool, aside from those terrible computer-animated animals.)  But my friend Adam (hi Adam) pulled up some Sade songs that rock this technique, which is just to slow shit down and, well, screw around with it, I guess.  Anyway, we listened to “Cherish the Day” by Sade.  She’s apparently a slow/chop/screw favorite.  Here’s a bad-ass version of “Soldier of Love.”

Mario Mindfreak!

Courtesy of a review of the “Super Mario Bros” tag at kottke.org:  some guy found this crazy, nearly impossible Super Mario World level hack and tried to beat it.  134 times.  Watch the craziest plumber slaughter you’ll ever see.

“It’s an All-Day Affair!”

I believe Mary Carillo is the best sports analyst of our time.  Apologies to John Madden or Jack Buck, but she combines experience with verbal wit, timing, and a sense of observation that I find unparalleled.  As I was searching for her comments regarding on-court coaching in women’s tennis (and you KNOW she has thoughts on that), I found on Huffington Post this amazing video regarding everyone’s favorite summertime backyard sport, badminton.  Ridiculously accurate, smoothly deadpanned.  I could watch this woman commentate a potato sack race.  Enjoy:

Because Being a Belgian Sports Idol Wasn’t Enough

Unfortunate footage of Justine Henin 2.0:

God Bless Delaware

Saw this on Gawker today.  My mind is simply blown.

I don’t really have anything to add.  Defend that Constitution, Christine!

Indianapolis Colts, Brought to You by Billy Ocean

This might be the worst Colts highlights clip I’ve ever seen, but I can’t quibble with the soundtrack choice.

You Boys Get Off The GameStation!!!

Irresistible video I stumbled upon, via kottke.org, a blog to whose awesomeness I can only aspire:
