What happens when two baroque cellists perform a cover of “Thunderstruck" by AC/DC? They shred. Literally. Keep an eye on their bows as the piece progresses.

This awesome video features Croatian cellists Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, aka 2Cellos, playing their phenomenal “BaRock style” arrangement of the hard rock classic for a completely bewildered 17th century audience. The concept is wonderful, but the actual performance is astonishing.

ok that was seriously badass. PLAY, CROATIAN BEAUTIES, PLAY WHILE I SHIP YOU.

i love the way the sound changes as the bows gradually disintegrate, too.

…And thinking of Big Mo made me ponder some of the other characters I’ve RP-ed as, and for some odd reason I always wind up being a team mom (or dad, in Optimus’ case), and once I was even a sassy undead-robot grandma.

I would totally get back into role-playing if I wasn’t so damned bad at it.

And if I could actually draw, I’d be tempted to do an ask/advice blog with Big Mo, since he’s basically me, only a Nameksei-jin.

…Somehow got on the subject of D20’s at work (20-sided dice, yo), and I was reminded rather painfully of my Dragonball Z Tabletop-RPG character.

Porunga damn it, Mollusca, I thought I was over you years ago…
…kinda miss ya, you big green dork. T___T

So after watching Paul Soares Jr. play Cube World, I bought a copy.

…I decided I need to get started building that big gaming rig I planned out back when I started playing Minecraft.
My sissy laptop can run it pretty well, but it does lag just a bit.

Also, my pet tally is as follows:

  • Buddy the Collie
  • Roger the Rabbit (Bunny)
  • Longshanks the Plains Runner
  • Shortsnort the Penguin
  • Cryaotic the Black Cat
  • Gameru the Turtle
  • Lieutenant the Raccoon, and
  • Paco the Terrier

I spent 5 days in-game running down various roads looking for a Jungle biome so I could adopt a Parrot, but no luck so far.

I found entire herds of those &*^(*& Bulls and a Megatron-sized Grim Reaper boss, a valley so full of onions and radishes that my computer audibly chugged, and I have also decided that I f*kkin’ HATE the lava biome.

So there. :P

…So I went looking for fart sounds for a GMod video, but I forgot I’m mentally five years old. XD

At what age do fart noises stop being funny? ‘Coz I think I’m about 20 years behind schedule…

What if…


What if…

Okay, after watching Transformers Prime and seeing all those lovely faces (and Meg’s glorious behind, lawl), I decided the franchise really needs a character with a potoo face.

And I’m not just saying that because I adore potoos; imagine the potential for storytelling.

You have this big, genial, funny-faced dork who nobody takes seriously except maybe the team stoic, and they turn out to be the Stephen Hawking and/or Bruce Lee of Cybertron.

…I would make a tasteless pun about all of y’all enjoying my rooster pictures, except I have a bad head cold and it’s flattened my IQ.

Consider yourselves lucky. XD

Severely bored Old One.
Cheerfully self-limits because pain is a novelty, and yay novelty.
Distant cousin to those masquerading as a mouthy merc and a certain party-loving baker.

Either that or a sentient mushroom. ;3

Trying out my new $60 dollar Turtle Beach headphones by listening to all the launchpad mashups, Bad Apple covers, and Fantomenk songs I have faved on YouTube.

Will report back.
