Strange Music Genres (Every Other Thursday)

Info about music genres found on various internet websites

Hello fellow music lovers! It’s Thursday, and I’ve decided to create a brand new topic. The creation of Music has brought on many fantastic genres and bands. This post will be focused on finding some rare, strange, and outrageous types of music. Now, grab your headphones, and let’s jam!

  • Lowercase Music: Lowercase Music was invented by Steve Roden in the early 90s. It’s created by amplifying the usually unheard sounds of world to an extreme level. This can be anything from ants running up a hill, to helium balloons hitting a ceiling. Roden’s first CD, Forms Of Paper, was recorded in The Los Angeles Public Library. In the CD, Roden handles paper in various ways. A rare expanded version of the CD was released, and only 500 copies are known to exist. The video below is of the before mention piece. Tell me what you think of it in the comments’ section below.

  • Synthwave: Synthwave is an awesome genre of music that originated in the mid 2000s. It was heavily inspired by 1980s movie soundtracks, as well as new wave. The style is mainly instrumental with synthesizers, electronic drums, and gated reverb. Pieces of this genre can be found in the film, Drive, the TV show, Stranger Things, and the video game, Hotline Miami. French musician, Perturbator is one of my favorite synthwave artists, and his work in Hotline Miami helped spread this genre to a wider audience. Listed below is my favorite Perturbator track, Technoir.

Hall of Lame: The Strangest Comic Book Characters (Every other Tuesday)

Info about characters found in various DC and Marvel Encyclopedias, The League Regrettable Superheroes, and on comicvine.gamespot.com

Hello fellow comic book fans! It’s Tuesday, and you know what that means! It’s time to crack open the comic vault, and look at the weirdest characters ever created. Now, grab your favorite issue, and let’s begin!

  •  Sixpack Real Name: Sidney Speck  First Appearance: Hitman #9 December 1996  Created by: DC Status: Hero and Delusional Drunk Powers: Expert in unarmed combat and weapons handling; incredibly high alcohol tolerance.

Sixpack is one of DC’s strangest superheroes. He once was the leader of Section Eight, a superhero team with equally strange powers. His history is hard to figure out, and due to the heavy consumption of alcohol he can’t remember anything from his past. Armed with his trusty broken bottle, Sixpack is always ready to start a fight. That is, if Cirrhosis doesn’t catch up with him first! *By the way, I strongly recommend reading Section Eight, it’s one hell of a journey!

  • Madcap Real Name:N/A First Appearance: Captain America #307 July 1985 Creator: Marvel Status: Villain and prankster  Powers: Incredible self-healing ability, able to survive almost any injury; causes others to lose inhibitions with embarrassing and sometimes lethal consequences. 

Madcap was originally a normal man, and devoted Christian, until a horrible bus accident rendered him insane. The bus collided with a truck carrying experimental nerve gas, killing everyone on board but Madcap. He developed the ability to heal from any injury, and used this to go on a crime spree. He has butted heads with many superheroes including Wolverine and Nomad.

Interesting SCPS (Every Other Tuesday)

(All info found in scp-wiki.net) The SCP society is a team of researchers and scientists that categorize anomalies and objects as well as classifying them. SCP stands for Secure Contain Protect. You start with “Safe” items, which are easily understood, and usually don’t pose a threat. “Euclid” class objects, which are less predictable, and may be sentient. “Keter” class objects are the most dangerous out of the three, and may cause an “end of the world” phenomena if not properly contained.

Hello everyone! It’s Tuesday, and it’s time to start a new post. I’m pretty sure that some of you know what SCPs are, and find them as fascinating as I do. Every other Tuesday, I will be adding two new SCPs to the list.

Final note: Some names/ other things may be Censored in order to protect identities.

  • SCP-021 The Skin Wrym  Object Class: (Safe) SCP-021 is a large oriental dragon tattoo that covers 0.8 meters of the skin. The tattoo is fully animate within the confines of the host’s skin and behaves largely like a normal animal would, albeit in only two dimensions. The tattoo’s movement causes constant pain to its host, comparable and similar in character to simultaneous tattooing and tattoo removal on a large scale. It appears to feed exclusively on pigments in the host’s skin. It can also be fed by tattooing fruits near the body. It can also be transferred between hosts by various forms of physical contact. SCP-021’s captivity is one of the longest in the Foundation’s history at nearly [DATA EXPUNGED] years, and has been very educational thus far.

  • WARNING! THIS ONE IS DISTURBING! SCP-106 The Old Man Object Class: (Keter) SCP-106 appears to be an elderly human, with the general appearance of advanced decomposition. This appearance may very, but the “rotting” quality is observed in all forms. SCP-106 is not exceptionally agile, and will remain motionless for days, waiting for prey. SCP-106 is also capable of scaling any vertical surface and can remain upside-down indefinitely. When attacking, SCP-106 will attempt to incapacitate prey by damaging major organs, muscle groups, or tendons, then pull disabled prey into its pocket dimension. It prefers human prey 10-25 years of age. SCP-106 causes a “corrosion” effect in all solid matter it touches, engaging a physical breakdown in materials several seconds after contact. This is observed as rotting, rusting, and cracking materials, and the creation of a black, mucus-like substance similar to the material coating SCP-106. This effect is particularly detrimental to living tissue, and is assumed to be a “pre-digestion” action. Corrosion continues for six hours after contact, after the effect appears to “burn out”.SCP-106’s “pocket dimension” is seemingly composed of halls and rooms, with [DATA EXPUNGED] entry. This activity can continue for days, with some subjected individuals being released for the express purpose of hunting, recapture, and [DATA EXPUNGED].

Here’s what the SCP looks like

 And here’s the unfortunate aftermath of Agent (Censored) after being released from the pocket dimension. He died one hour after release. Also, I’d love to hear what you guys think of this post, so be sure to leave a comment in the comment’s section below.

  • Trap-Jaw Ant (Odontomachus) (info about sic name from en.wikipedia.org) The Trap-Jaw Ant is a very creepy looking ant that’s found in the tropics worldwide.

(en.wikipedia.org) They have the fastest moving predatory appendages, which can move at speeds up to 230 kilometers per hour! (en.wikipedia.org) The coolest feat it can perform, is to use its jaws as a catapult to fling itself, or prey backward to escape. (en.wikipedia.org) Yes, now ants scare me!
