Extreme Ways¬†by Moby from the album “18” 2002 (info about album from en.wikipedia.org) God, I love this song! I remembering hearing it as a kid, and loving every second of it!

I highly recommend this awesome piece of music to everybody. Tell me what you think about it in the comments section below.

777¬†by William Orbit from the album “Strange Cargo 2” 1990 (info about album from en.wikipedia.org) Ah yes, the awesome Electronic musician, William Orbit. I have been listening to his music for as long as I can remember. This happens to be one of my favorite pieces from the album. It starts with some creepy vocals, and then it transforms into a very dynamic Electronic piece that sounds like what would be played in a jungle. The brilliant use of tribal drums and animal-like noises hold this amazing piece together. I highly recommend this dynamic piece to absolutely everyone. Tell me what you think in the comments section below.

  • Cyclops! The Hitotsume¬†kozo¬†is a very strange, but cute creature of Japanese mythology. They are about the size of a small child, and have one¬†gigantic eye, as well as, a long red¬†tongue. (yokai.com) Thankfull, despite scaring people, they aren’t dangerous to humans, and seem to appear on various dates throughout the year. (yokai.com)¬†The Hitotsume kozo is said to appear in East Japan on December 8th to judge the fortunes of bad¬†families for the upcoming year. (yokai.com) They then take their findings to the god of bad luck to bring unlucky events to said family. (yokai.com) So make sure to be good to¬†each other!

  • AAAAAH! The Kerakera onna is one¬†creepy creature of Japanese folklore. They are said to be the spirit of a dead prostitute that¬†literally worked herself to death. (yokai.com) She now appears as a gigantic middle-aged woman in a kimono with heavy lipstick and makeup. (yokai.com) If a man¬†unfortunately walks down a street haunted by one of these creatures, he gets a huge shock. (yokai.com) The yokai lets out a horrible laugh, which causes a meek man to faint on the spot! (yokai.com) Those who don’t get scared by this are driven insane! (yokai.com)
