More Obscure Music Genres

Hello everyone! It’s time for me to bring back an old favorite! About a year ago, I jumped into the fascinating world of obscure music genres. I have always found this topic to be quite interesting with new genres added almost daily. Now, let’s dive into the most unique and weird genres that music has to offer!

  • Noise Rock Created: 1968 Prominent Bands: Melt-Banana, Metz, Big Black

Noise Rock is a Punk-inspired genre with large distortion levels,  occasionally unintelligible vocals, sharp and intense sounds, and blindingly fast guitar riffs and strange lyrics. Many Japanese bands of this genre also started to rise in the early 60’s. While most of it is very painful to the ears, some is quite enjoyable like Sonic Youth and Velvet Underground.

  • Glitch Hop Created: 1997 Prominent Producers: Virtual Riot, Mr. Bill, GRiZ 

Glitch Hop is a subgenre of Glitch that uses malfunctioning electronics and fusion of Hip Hop to create incredibly catchy, video game-inspired pieces. It’s also influenced by Dubstep and drum and bass. The pieces are usually played at 110 BPM.

More Crappy Video Game Art (Every Other Wednesday)

Hello fellow gamers! It’s Wednesday, and you know what that means! Yes, it’s time to take a look at some more cringy artwork. Now, let’s begin this suckfest!

  • Chuckie Egg 2 for the Amiga (1985) Genre: Adventure

Chuckie Egg 2 is a strange adventure game for the Amiga computer. You control Harry, who’s trying to assemble a giant chocolate egg. The cover is an entirely different beast! For one thing, it’s creepy as fuck! We see an egg-human hybrid with hyperrealistic eyes and an incredibly ugly face. The backwards cap also makes the egg look like a pretentious douchebag. We also can’t forget the pig vomit which is the weird spider hanging on the bamboo from above. I absolutely hate this cover, and it’s sure to induce nausea within minutes of viewing.

  • NCAA March Madness 2003 for the Playstation 2 (2002) Genre: Sports 

March Madness was a series of basketball games that were made by EA Sports. This cover is truly a mustard stain of epic failure! The basketball player, Drew Gooden is incredibly flamboyant looking, and has a very stupid expression on his face. His head is also disproportionate to the rest of his body. Tell me what you think of this work in the comments’ section below.

SCP Special! (Once Every Month)

Reader beware! Scary content ahead!

Hello everyone, and welcome to a blast from the past! I’ve decided to take one random day from each month to the exploration of SCPs. I absolutely adore this macabre and morbidly fascinating community. It keeps growing every day, and I always look forward to the new posts. Now, without any further ado, let’s get started!

  • Graffito SCP-274 Object Class: Keter (Description is summarized)

Description: SCP-274 is a paint of variable color. Buildings inflicted with SCP-274 appear to have large amounts of graffiti covering the sides of the building, and often have large, disturbing designs to them (see addendum-274). While its consistency is that of normal paint, its composition reveals it to be 28% hemoglobin, 12% gastric acid, and 60% common components consistent with Krylon brand spray paint.

When SCP-274 is applied to a wall, it will begin to spread until the entire wall is covered by it. It’s unable to cover metal, glass, or any horizontal surfaces. When SCP-274 spreads on to buildings, it will convert the wall’s interior into a large mesoglea, the interior walls into a gastrodermis, and the exterior walls act as a protective shell and epidermis. This becomes SCP-274-1

SCP-274-1 has human level sentience, and will lure people to it by making grunts and whimpering. If a human gets to close to the anomaly, it will be absorbed into is gastrovascular cavity. This transforms them into SCP-274-2.

These organisms are depicted as men and women wearing respirators, gas masks, and pastel colored hoodies. They are masters of disguise, and will compact themselves on the wall until prey comes by. SCP-274-2 have a strange, hinged operculum located in their right hands. This device acts like a spray can, and projects SCP-274 like paint. Upon contact, the SCP will be sprayed into the victim’s mouth and eyes. This attack method is extremely painful, and the victim will blinded and numb from the neck down. The poor soul is then absorbed into the cavity, where it becomes another instance of SCP-274-2.

  SCP-274-2 duplicates itself every 24 hours, and when 12 duplicates are made, the entity will attempt to cover other buildings. If unchecked, entity may cover a large city within 20 days.

Addendum-274:

Date Found: 01/(BLANK)/2001(SCP-274-1-1), 04/(BLANK)/2006 (SCP-274-1-2), 03/(BLANK)/2010 (SCP-274-1-3), 08/(BLANK)/2011 (SCP-274-1-4), 11/(BLANK)/2011 (SCP-274-1-5), 07/(BLANK)/2012 (SCP-274-1-6),08/(BLANK)/2012 (SCP-274-1-7), 08/(BLANK)/2012 (REDACTED)

Appearance: SCP-274-1-1 is painted to resemble a large bus with the number (BLANK) on its side. The front of the bus has been replaced by a human like face, and the back is on fire. The bus patrons don’t appear to be effected by the fire.   

SCP-274-1-2 is painted to look like its crumbling apart. People appear to be running away, and a face is forming from the falling rubble.

SCP-274-1-3 is painted to look like a shark infested beach with people running from the shore. There’s also a giant tiki statue that covers most of the front of the piece.

SCP-274-1-4 is designed to look like a hellish version of Noah’s ark. The creatures are some types of unknown species, and they all have sharp teeth, and eyes devoid of pupils and irises.

SCP-274-1-5 is a scene of several figures in biohazard suits fighting each other for a bottle of hand sanitizer. There’s also several cadavers in a pile with a demonic grinning green dog laughing at the trauma. 

SCP-274-1-6 is painted to resemble a mausoleum. There’ s a large human skull painted at its front. The base has figures suffering from advanced stages of rigor mortis. Several figures appear to be wearing standard- issue tactical armor distributed to MTF-Pi-1. 

SCP-274-1-7 is decorated with a scene of MTF-PI-1 setting the anomaly on fire through the use of Molotov cocktails. There’s also a large depiction of the anomaly attacking the figures.

[REDACTED]. (BLANK) operatives dead as a result of a large mob of SCP-274-2 numbering between (BLANK) to (BLANK).

  • Blood Candy SCP-942 Object Class: Safe

Description: SCP-942-1 are colored gumballs of standard (2.53 cm) size. From the instance the gumball is ingested, the consumer’s bodily fluids will take on the appearence of blood upon leaving the subject’s body. The fluids coagulate like normal blood and are indistinguishable from blood by sight, smell, and touch. The blood in the body is seemingly unaffected, however, nosebleeds, blood-shot eyes, and tears of bloody will occur. There’s also some discomfort during urination.

Subjects have shown to have panic attacks after exposure, and may lead to severe bodily harm or dehydration.

SCP-942-2 is a small bubble gum dispenser for home use of a model produced by [REDACTED]. The machine appears to have an unlimited supply of SCP-942-1, and can be damaged normally. There’re currently researching the replenishing capacity of the machine. The words; “Try something different today! Sweet and candy-red!” are engraved on the underside.

Halloween Special!

Hello fellow viewers, and Happy Halloween! I’ve decided to do something very special for the holiday. This post will be about Creepypastas. Creepypastas are internet horror stories that are passed around and occasionally read by people on Youtube. They cover a variety of topics, ranging from urban legends, to psychological horror. I have been listening to them for a very long time, and I’ve decided to share some of my favorites. Now, use the light of your computers as the campfire, and let’s begin the spooky tales!

  • NES Godzilla Creepypasta by Cosbydaf  Genre: Haunted Game 

Haunted video games are a big part of the Creepypasta community, and this is probably the best story. It’s about a boy named Zachary who is given the old NES game as a present. What starts as a normal, enjoyable gaming experience turns very wrong. Zach goes on a journey through corrupted data, bizarre levels, and one of the scariest video game antagonists ever made. It has many crazy twists and turns that will leave you shocked and amazed. I highly recommend this story to everyone, and I post a link of it below. Goji73 does an impeccable job narrating this story, and even adds his own music to enhance the atmosphere. I’d love to hear what you guys think of this story in the comments’ section below.

  

 

 

  • Borrasca by C.K. Walker Genre: Psychological/Violent/Emotional Horror

The Borrasca is an incredibly intense journey of betrayal, sex, horror, controversy, violence, and despair. It has many adult themes, and is strongly intended for mature audiences only. The story is about a boy named Sam who moves to Drisking, Missouri from St. Louis. Sam’s father, a cop, becomes the sheriff of the town, and Sam meets his two best friends. They start having a lot of fun exploring town, until Sam’s friends Kyle, and Kimber, take him to a place called the Triple Tree. This giant treehouse holds a terrible secret about Skinnedmen and a place called the Borrasca. There’s also a extremely disturbing mechanical noise that appears at random during the day. Shit finally hits the fan when Sam’s sister, Whitney goes missing. What starts as a simple missing person case, transforms into something much worse. Walker pulls no punches, and some parts of the story are very hard to read. The writing and setting of the story is absolutely perfect, and I would love to see this tale transformed into a movie. Posted below, is a link to Mr. CreepyPasta’s narration of the story. He’s one of the most popular “Creepytubers”, and his work is always admirable. I highly recommend this story, but be warned, it’s quite unnerving.

  • The Showers by Dylan Sindelar Genre: Paranormal

The Showers is an awesome story with a very surprising ending. It’s about a high school student named Jack, and his Social Studies teacher, Mr. Mays. Jack looks up to this teacher, and he’s very popular with the students. One Halloween day, Mr. Mays tells his class a horror story. It ends up being so well done, and so compelling, that everyone loved it. Jack begins to tell the story to other people, and then finally meets his teacher at a bar. What goes on from there is up to you to find out, however, I will say that its one awesome adventure. Mr. CreepyPasta narrates this awesome story in the link below.
