Asher’s Favorite Animations (Special Post)

Hello everyone, and welcome to an extremely special post! I have been a major fan of Web Animation for my entire life, and have finally decided to share some with you. Most of these animations will be found on Youtube, with the exception of one. Now, let’s be blown away by these fantastic works of art!

  • Kaizo Trap by Guy Collins 2015 Music by Leslie Wai 

I just found out about this video yesterday, and my god, it’s fantastic! The animation is essentially a loving homage to the classic rage games. If you’ve ever played “I Wanna Be The Guy” or “Cat Mario”, you’ll know exactly what’s in store for you. The movie is about a couple that gets sucked into the most punishing Video Game ever made. The boy gets kidnapped, and its up to the girl to save him. The animation is incredibly fluid, and the pulse-pounding Dubstep soundtrack really adds tension. I’m not going to ruin the ending, but let me just say, it’ll leave you in tears!

 

  • Me! Me! Me! by Teddyloid (feat. daoko) 2014 Warning! This Music Video contains nudity, blood, gore, and adult themes.  

Me! Me! Me! is a mind-blowing music video by Japanese DJ, Teddyloid. It tells the story of a Hikikomori Otaku or “shut in”. He’s visited by a harem of busty anime chicks, and crazy stuff starts to happen. The music does a fantastic job of portraying suspense and anxiety. The piece is extremely catchy, and you’ll be humming the tune for hours on end. This video, however, isn’t for kids, as the subject matter and content is very adult.

  • MOO! by Cyriak Harris 2007 HD Version 2015 Genre: Comedic Animation

I feel like I’ve done Cyriak a major disservice for never mentioning him in any of my posts. In was you don’t know, Cyriak is a British animator whose style is unlike anything you’ve ever seen. It’s usually a mix of crazy fractals and shapes with some hints of surrealism. I absolutely adore his wacky style, and binge his animations frequently. This animation, is about a war between aliens and cows. The artwork gets extremely bizarre, and it’s accompanied by an even stranger soundtrack. I highly recommend this video, as it will get you a first look at Cyriak’s humor and style.

More Awesome Yu-Gi-Oh! Cards (Every Other Friday)

Hello fellow Duelists! It’s Friday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time for us to take a look at some more awesome cards. Now, let’s duel!

  • Steelswarm Sting Type: Fiend/Effect 4 stars Attribute: Dark  ATK: 1850 DEF: 0  Effect: When this card you control is sent to you Graveyard: Target 1 face-up Ritual, Fusion, or Synchro Monster on the field; destroy that target. Appearance: A metallic bee with yellow wings and a large stinger.

Steelswarms are a very fun archetype in Yu-Gi-Oh! They’re all Fiend types, and focus on overwhelming the opponent with powerful monsters. Its high attack power and amazing effect make it extremely versatile in any Fiend deck. It also helps that its effect can be used outside of battle. I highly recommend this card to dry your opponents crazy!

  • Tribe Infecting Virus Type: Aqua/Effect 4 stars ATK: 1600 DEF: 1000 Effect: Discard 1 card from your hand and declare 1 type of monster. Destroy all face-up monsters of the declared Type on the field. Appearance: A swirling embodiment of chaos and pestilence.

This chaotic card was the bane of many people’s existence when the game first began. Unfortunately, the card has been banned for many years, and for good reason too. Its effect is way too good, and you can clear your opponents field extremely easily. Nevertheless, I adore this card, and from what I hear, it’s going to be coming back to the game quite soon.

The Amazing World of ASMR

Hello everyone, and welcome to a very special post. Today, I will be discussing the amazing phenomenon known as ASMR. ASMR stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response, and is a tingling sensation that some people get from a variety of stimuli. These include; tapping on objects, soft voices, binaural beats, brushing hair, role-plays, and vocal triggers. The sensation is incredibly soothing, and puts the mind into a state of Nirvana. Various people on Youtube make videos to specifically trigger this phenomenon, and they’re known as ASMRtists. It’s an extremely diverse community, with members from all around the world. I had experienced ASMR in my childhood, when my mother would trace my arm up to my head. This would immediately cause all of the stress to leave my body. I recently discovered the ASMR community, and have completely fallen in love with the relaxing videos. I get ASMR mainly from role-plays or message videos. Some of my favorite ASMRtists include; Gibi ASMR, Tingting ASMR, Articulate Design ASMR, ASMR Darling, ASMR Zeitgeist, Ephemeral Rift ASMR, Gentle Whispering ASMR, Whispers Red ASMR, Heather Feather ASMR, Jojo’s ASMR, Fred’s Voice ASMR, and Message ASMR. As you can see, there’re tons of ASMRtists on Youtube, and it’s up to you to decide which ones work for you. I will be posting a link to a great introduction of this sensation in the comments’ section below. Now, prepare your brain for an awesome message!

Asher’s Jukebox Part 109

The Name Of The Wave by William Orbit from the album “Strange Cargo Hinterland” 1995 (info about album from en.wikipedia.org) Are you guys ready for a very soothing and awesome song? I sure hope so! This piece is very near and dear to my heart. My father used to play this album to me when I was a kid, and I loved and still love it! This piece starts out with a hypnotic guitar, and then transforms into an incredibly beautiful and ambient Electronic instrumental. If you like to calm down after a stressful day, this will definitely put you in a good mood. I highly recommend this song to absolutely everyone. Be sure to tell me what you think about it in the comments section below.

Happy Listening 😀
