Dan le Sac vs Scroobius Pip’s “Sick Tonight”

In case you haven’t had enough brown paper bag-headed Brits galavanting around Brooklyn throwing up glitter on the Domino Sugar Factory and Grand Street Ferry Park, here’s Dan le Sac vs Scroobius Pip’s new video for “Sick Tonight” off of their currently Europe-only record Logic of Chance. The track is dope and the video matches. I was a huge fan of Angles when it hit a couple years ago and I am pretty excited for this one. Maybe not 30 dollars for the import on Amazon excited, but definitely 13 dollars on Amazon for the US release whenever it comes out.

Since this reminded me, look out for some of their older videos over the next few days.

Rhapsody’s “Sea of Fate”

I will never refer to this band as “Rhapsody of Fire” even though that’s what they had to legally change their name to a few years ago. For me, they will always and forever be just plain old Rhapsody, the finest Italian Advanced Dunegons & Dragons Power Metal band in the history of the universe. Sure, they’re cheesy as hell and the music is utterly ridiculous, but, dude, they totally rock too.

The video itself? A prime example of boring performance-only tripe. Where are the knights, guys? Or the naked demon chicks? Or the time travelling children? Where’s the flame and bombast and shitty visual effects that make your other music videos so totally bitchin’ rad? Don’t tell me you’re trying to class up your act with this white cyc video. Of course, at the very end we have a classic Rhapsody moment with the “To Be Continued” title card. We’ll see where this goes.

However, the song totally rules. Unlike the video, it still contains all the elements that make Rhapsody so awesome: constant double bass drums, synthesizer solos, guitar solos, battling synth and guitar solos, Fabio Leone’s wicked wail. Just too great. If this band doesn’t make you want to rock out until your head snaps off, you’re not doing it right.

You know what’s weird?

How quickly babies grow. Remember this adorable little peanut?

Of course you do. She’s adorable. How could you not? Well, just look at this photo sent to me this morning by my brother.

What, is she dressed up for a night on the town? Gonna take the Beemer out for a spin, are ya kid? Where the hell have I been? Although the growth of babies has got to be one of the most mundane things in life, consider my mind blown.
