Out of the Blue

I just got Monday's snow all shoveled yesterday and we got socked with another big snowstorm overnight. And even though yesterday's chore came hours after the snow ended, it already looks like it will be a worse today even though it's still coming down, as the snow is wet and heavy, and there's lots of it. Maybe instead of shoveling and making a cup of hot cocoa, I'll make gallons of hot cocoa and pour it over the sidewalks.

That Yamato trailer is like... 3 years old ~.~ but what's even more hilarious, is that you can watch the entire movie in the related video links on the side... yay? ;p

Ya ya, I know it's old, but seeing as I only found out about it the other day it's new to me ... and it's never been posted here so it's new to Blues.
Figured there might be some old farts like me around here who grew up with Star Blazers and might appreciate it... and the fact you can watch the whole thing on the tube is just a bonus, which I did last night. They did a pretty good job, kinda falls apart towards the end though.
Also it seems the franchise has been picked up by an american company who's looking to make another movie based on the IP.

Yeah the movie isn't half bad. But how could you ever hope to put countless episodes into 1 movie and have it not fall apart.... either way you brought back some memories hehe.. I watched the original Yamato animation like a few months back and had all but forgotten that they made a live action adaption....

Either way, I didn't mean to bash on the news. Just was surprising to see this

Guitars and Drums (pre)recorded. Vocals live. Hmmm. Its a shame that it wasnt the other way around. Anthony has got to be one of the shittiest successful frontman vocalists alive. His recorded stuff is pretty good, but man does he suck live. He cant hold a note to save his life...

I've often heard that about him. But then again, what singer can? Other than Maynard Keenan, I haven't heard a singer that sounds as good live as they do on the studio albums. Scott Weiland sounded pretty good.

Bruce Dickinson can sing as well if not better live than in the studio, Y'all. And he can still do it today at the age of 55.

You guys should give up on whether the ground hog sees his shadow or not & just check how shriveled his balls are.
I'm thinking this year his balls are pretty shriveled .

Well maybe that guy in Fargo was right....

Fox stated that he was simply “fed up with battling the elements” and that he did not possess the willpower necessary to move “four billion tons of white bull shit.”

I'm look, look, look, lookin' out my back door - just like CCR - and a few days ago it was a thin layer of snow. Now it's 2 foot on average with a few drifts getting upward of 4+ feet. I think I'd like a flamethrower at this point too.

Average slob dies of an overdose, shove him in a bag then shove him in the ground.

Rich, movie star, slob dies from an overdose, call out the national guard and hunt down the dealers no matter how much it costs.

That's a nice touch. I don't think it's necessary for musicians to go crazy with their artistic integrity; I've no problem with artists doing this but I've no problem with artists liking to get paid either. If RHCP mimed on tour, they'd be dead to me.

Bruno Mars was actually very good, I didn't have high hopes. I really hate the musical montage system, whatever it's called, where each song only gets about a minute before they transition to the next. The previous Bowl had that too, do they always do this?

I'd take Bruce Springsteen playing 2 or 3 songs over any of that nonsense. Damn good music from the most American musician I can think of for the most American event I watch.

Speaking of Bruce, I love this article. It's a classical voice teacher listening to heavy metal singers and evaluating their voices and singing. She adores Bruce. And what she has to say about Ozzy is freakin' hilarious.

On the guys' front, I'd say Phil Collins always sounded great live, Simon Le Bon, Peter Cetera, just off the top of my head. And of course the Three Tenors sounded fantastic live. :)

I saw Duran Duran a few years ago, and was really amazed how good Simon sounded, decades on. I'm guessing maybe he's had some semi clean living...

I think very few singers sound as good live as they do on a track, because that track's been recorded on typically 48 channels, and they can just pick the purest sounding one.

It's more a matter of "Does it even sound like they can actually SING?" when artists go live. And with the invention of auto-tune, and absolutely ridiculously advanced audio equipment, more and more 'artists' are just chosen for their looks and audience appeal rather than their actual ability to sing. Which is sad. Britney Spears, for example, can't sing for shit live. Whereas Christina Aguilera could at least hold a note.

Two artists that readily come to mind who actually could sing are Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey. On the guys' front, I'd say Phil Collins always sounded great live, Simon Le Bon, Peter Cetera, just off the top of my head. And of course the Three Tenors sounded fantastic live.

But it's probably kinda telling that I'm picking artists from the 80s...
