This is the most awesome thing I've seen in a LONG time!
I loved Throwing Fire (The song that this song samples from) since it came out, so you can imagine my surprise when I clicked this video and heard it as the music track!
Also, am I the only one who figured that the guy in the mask represents the "faceless" industry and that 'clone' that he made of the video-game-version of Gowe represents the 'fake' or 'sellout' version that the industry wishes to turn him into, and the fact that he beat the ever-loving crap out of the clone means that he'll never become what the industry wants him to be and will keep doing his own thing?
Just a thought =P
Indeed, and yes, I can assure you this is in no way an anti-religion movie. It's more of an anti-superstion move, with a moral that makes a lot of sense: coming up with your own unfounded, crackpot conclusions about events with no evidence at all instead of drawing reasonable conclusions FROM evidence will lead to your downfall.
I think a part that many people get turned off by though is when the probe said "God hates science", and may have took that as a stab against religion, but in fact it is not... Nothing in the Bible ever said that God hates science, nor does belief in God mean you have to abandon logic (I have actually read a VERY interesting book about how scientific findings so far have not disproved the Bible at all, and neither does the Bible say anything that is contrary to scientific discoveries).
Anyway, this is a very good flash that provides a timely critique on the human race. 10/10
"For example, I ate a $50 bill yesterday..."
...It was scrumptuous! LOL
This flash movie was absolutely hilarious! It had a kind of random, wacky humor which managed to remain gut-bustingly funny without being vulgar, which is a nice breath of fresh air from the overused 'shock' humor you find in many flash movies. The character was very well created, and that whole "MUNNEH! (*Something breaks*)" thing was a brilliant idea... I think we've got material for a series here!
Heheh, I see what you did there... This is a reference to that game Ki Swan made in Video Game High School, isn't it?
Man oh man, is this game awesome!
A game like this is something I've been looking for ever since I finished watching Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann... Although it's nothing like TTGL itself, the way that you can go on and take the enemies' pieces, and literally put them on your ship any way you want until it grows into a massive, super-boss slayer of your design evokes that same feeling of power growth. You sir, are a genius of game design.
BTW, just out of curiosity, are Shellcores robots or lifeforms?
And if I may suggest, in EP2, please, PLEASE make it possible to move things captured by your tractor beam around with the mouse or something...
Kanye West is an idiot...
A megalomaniacal idiot at that... He has some nerve thinking that he's such a huge, glorious genius of an artist when all he really does is sample other people's songs and rap over them about how 'awesome' he is. When he took Talor Swift's microphone away from her, that was the last straw. That scum is less of a man than a teenage girl. I bet he wouldn't taken the microphone away from someone who wasn't as sweet and delicate as Taylor is... Kanye needs a serious reality check... Or a bat to the face. On second thought, he deserves to have his behind handed to him by P!nk. She said she wanted to. ;)
This song may not really 'mean' anything, but it speaks to my freaking soul. It uses the human voice (and not to mention a mesmerisingly beautiful one at that) purely as an instrument in a way that I've never really heard before in a song, and just like how a piano doesn't speak a language but its notes can still play a melody with meaning, so does your voice in this piece. It combines the sounds of Latin, Spanish and Japanese seamlessly, with lyrics guided only by what syllables sound beautiful together.
Overall, I think this is a triumph of epic proportions for not just this musical style, but for music in general. It transcends the limits of language itself and forms something that is in fact incredibly deep and meaningful despite not translating to anything specific.
Simply put: Hania, you're a genius.
I tried to say more... But I'm speechless!
By the way, this wouldn't happen to be based on the Quartz Quadrant zone in the Japanese version of Sonic CD, would it? It sounds almost exactly like it!
This really captures the feeling of the victims of the invasion... Unfortunately, if 'the invaders' heard them singing this, they'd love it!
It reminds me a lot of something that happened in a story I wrote (however, the 'invaders' were humans from a country who invaded another nation solely because they were offended by the culture of the target nation and felt they needed to be 'cleansed'). I wonder if any future installments will tell what exactly the invaders want...
