Asher’s Jukebox Part 185

Confronting Myself by Lena Raine from the Celeste OST January 25th, 2018

Celeste is a video game that I will do a review of sometime in the future. I will try to not go into any spoilers in this post, so don’t worry if you haven’t played it. Anyway, this insanely epic piece of music is played during the (Spoiler heavy) part of the game. When I first heard it, I literally got chills, and my mouth lay agape. Also, I find it really cool that the entire soundtrack was written by a Trans person.  The song starts out with an amazing chorus of chanting women, and then it turns very electronic. There’s a fantastic synthesizer in the background that makes up the backing instrument. The high intensity of the track makes the gameplay have dramatic tension. My favorite part of the piece is near the middle, when the vocals get distorted, and this plays a major part in the game. If you haven’t played Celeste already, I highly recommend it. The music is amazing, and the story and gameplay are surprisingly deep. Tell me what you think of this piece in the comments’ section below.

 

Asher’s Jukebox Part 184

Hurt by Johnny Cash March 2003 From The Album: “American IV: The Man Comes Around” Genres: Acoustic Rock, Country, Alternative

This emotional piece was created by Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails. Cash’s cover of the song moved Reznor so deeply, that it almost seemed like Cash’s version was the original. The song literally brings me to tears every time I hear it, and the lyrics pierce the soul like an emotional arrow. It also is important to know that this was one of Cash’s last songs, as he died months later. In the video, you can tell that Cash’s health is dwindling, but his deep and crooning voice shines out like a last hurrah. His excellent guitar skills are also absolutely beautiful in this song. The video also shows Cash at his prime, and tells his life story. Some of the lyrics really hit hard for me, and I’ll discuss some of them now. “Everyone I know goes away in the end”. This is extremely deep, and basically means that everyone will die at some time, and nobody’s immortal. The chorus also seems like a plea of desperation and demise, which gives the listener a shocking truth about the fragility of human life.

Bizarre and Wonderful Books Part 1

Parental Advisory! These books may discuss some controversial themes. You have been warned!

Hello everyone, and welcome to a brand new post! I’ve wanted to discuss this topic for a very long time, and I thought that today would be a good place to start. Throughout the years, I’ve read some absolutely bizarre books. When I discovered “Bizarro Fiction” for the first time, it was like a match made in heaven! This genre is insane, and covers some of the most mind-blowing stories I’ve ever read. I see it as the “Abstract Art of Literature”. It has different meanings depending on who reads them, and isn’t afraid to touch on some offensive subjects. If this post makes you interested in this wonderful genre, then I’ve done my part. Now, let’s dive into the amazing world of Bizarro Fiction!

  • John Dies At The End by David Wong 2009 Genres: Bizarro Fiction, Horror, Humor, Science Fiction  464 Pages Age Rating: 17+ (Strong Language, Gore, Violence, Disturbing Imagery, Drug Usage) 

I’ve talked about this book multiple times in the past, and I still love it to death. The story is about two college kids that fight the paranormal occurrences in their undisclosed town. It also has to do with an absolutely insane drug known as “Soy Sauce”. The book was made into an equally awesome film, and spawned two sequel novels which are just as crazy.  Unlike most Bizarro Fiction books, this one can be found at local bookstores and libraries. I highly recommend checking this book out, and would love to hear what you think of it in the comments’ section below.

  • Zombies and Shit by Carlton Mellick III October 17th, 2010 Genres: Bizarro Fiction, Horror, Survival, Punk, Post-Apocalyptic, Science Fiction, Fantasy 312 Pages Age Rating: 17+ (Gore, Blood, Sexual Themes, Strong Language, Shocking Imagery, Cultural Issues) 

What is there to say about Carlton Mellick III? He easily is one of the godfathers of Bizarro Fiction. His crazy look and explosively intriguing books make him standout in the crowd of literature. I first discovered him when I was researching books that were similar to the one mentioned above. The crazy artwork alone pulled me into the rabbit hole, and there I stayed. This particular novel is one of his coolest and most fascinating. It literally is what would have happened if you were to put Battle Royale, Mad Max, and Dawn of the Dead into a blender. If you like survival novels, you will adore this book. It is equally humorous and tragic with an excellent blend of hardcore punk. The twenty different characters are also very unique, and the story has many ridiculous plot twists throughout. Once again, I highly recommend picking up this book because it is one hell of a unique ride. (Zombies and Shit can be purchased on Amazon for $13)

Even More Crappy Book Covers (Every Other Tuesday)

Hello fellow book lovers! It’s Tuesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time to take a look at some more crappy covers. Now, let’s begin!

  • Shadows of Sleep by Aaron Gritsch Release Date: August 17th, 2018 Genre: Fiction 383 Pages Plot: This is a tale about fighting demons while in sleep paralysis 

The plot of this book actually sounds pretty interesting, however, the cover is anything but pretty! It looks like a half-assed drawing of a shadow person that looks  like it could be done by anyone.

  • Finding Our Way by Jayson James Release Date: December 11th, 2013 284 Pages Genre: LGBT Fiction Plot: The story of a gay couple and their daily lives.

The story of this book is very fascinating, and I will probably read it someday. Unfortunately, the cover doesn’t do it justice. It’s a pencil drawing of 2 boys, however one of them looks high as hell. I honestly would treat a book discussing difficult subject matter to have a more refined cover.
