Next up in the que is the live action 2010 yamato movie. i enjoyed it even as condensed as it was with a little artistic licence taken with the gamilons the soundtrack however was top notch. still retaining the feel of the original but giving it's own twist-




After that i have started through the set of 5 soundtracks for the re-make of the first 2 seasons of the anime (2199 and 2202)

As well as Pandorax for, like, the 20th time (and when the time in the novel came to it The Trials of Azrael which I thoroughly enjoyed, Azrael is pretty damn badass in that story and his fight against Kharn is well written and shows respect to both characters) but right now, or when I began typing this, in all honesty.




One of my favourite songs of the Cowboy Bebop OST up there with Tank! Not sure why exactly, though.

"The best way to lie is to tell the truth." Attelus Kaltos.
My story! Secret War
After his organisation is hired to hunt down an influential gang leader on the Hive world, Omnartus. Attelus Kaltos is embroiled deeper into the complex world of the Assassin. This is the job which will change him, for better or for worse. Forevermore. Chapter 1.

The Angaran Chronicles: Hamar Noir. After coming back from a dangerous mission which left his friend and partner, the werewolf: Emilia in a coma. Anargrin is sent on another mission: to hunt down a rogue vampire. A rogue vampire with no consistent modus operandi and who is exceedingly good at hiding its tracks. So much so even the veteran Anargrin is forced into desperate speculation. But worst of all: drive him into desperate measures. Measures which drives Anargrin to wonder; does the ends, justify the means?

Oh, she's a frigging genius, no doubt, but in an OST made of nothing but gems, I'm just not sure why that gem is one of the shiniest for me lol

Well i finally have come to the end...300 or so anime soundtracks down

the last is from a lesser known series-(starship girl) Yamamoto Yoko)

i have all the manga and enjoyed the fun little series, especially since the main characters were voiced by some fo the most famous seyuu in japan. sakiko tamagawa, minami tkayama, megumi hayashibara....just to name a few.

The setting is set far into the future where wars are fought in obstacle course laden space battleship races. the 2 main forces are TERRA and one of it's former colonies-NESS

The head of the terran team created a time machine to go back to our current day to find pilots who are more aggressive and more attuned to competitive tactics and game play than the current era of the terran populations.




After all that i start through the collection again with my rock and metal albums...coming soon-the A's

Finished listening to Pandorax, a fun, rip-roaring ride, the best part in it to me is the interplay between Azrael and Draigo. It also, somewhat, feels like a planet-scale war. I think CZ Dunn does have a bad habit of over-explaining things. One thing I think he neglected to do which has a lot of potentials is the character of Epimetheus being a Space Marine from the Great Crusade and the Horus Heresy and neglecting to go more into his thoughts and feelings about the regression of the Imperium of Mankind into theocracy, bureaucracy, etc etc. Now listening to The Unremembered Empire.

So starting off on my catalog of metal and rock bands i am going to do something a bit different. think of it like "bookending" i have large catalogs of albums from many artists as such it is impossible to keep track of each album i am listening to through the weeks. so i will try to grab a rare song i liked from both the early and late catalogs of the bands in question.


To start off with is the mighty ACCEPT. the german band that has been rocking since the later 70's and just released a new album this month.

Going back to the early days with the original singer the legendary Udo Dirkschnier a song i really enjoyed

-i'm a rebel




A newer song with the new singer Mark Tornillo(a fine replacement for Udo i must admit )




As an added bonus i also have the tribute album with many well known contributors like hammerfall, primal fear and this little donation from dimmu borgir

Well after 14 or so albums i have finished my ACCEPT collection.

No rock collection could be complete without my next entry-

the thunder from down under-AC/DC

It is hard to find a song they have done especially the early work with Bon Scott that isn't well known.







At the other end of the bands career a little Brian Johnson

Rather fitting that the next band in the list is a great blues hard rock band also from austrailia with a very similar sound to AC/DC

AIRBOURNE











And a special bonus, just got my copy of the new pretty reckless

This entry is a bit of an oddity. i pretty well found this band by accident.

the style is all over the place but i can best describe it as a combination of metal/opera and ambient synth.
Many of the songs remind me heavily of the .hack//sign soundtrack.

I cannot overstate how much I love One Piece, (my Rogue Trader campaign has a lot of OP in it, as well as my writing in general Eiichiro Oda is a damned genius in my eyes, Sanji was my hero as a teenager and made me obsessed with kicking in my martial arts practising my technique to such an extent I kicked flies out of mid-air three times and strengthened my legs I sprinted 10 metres in .86 of a second) finally beginning to try to catch up on the Manga with the 3 in 1 books which are a much cheaper way to collect than buying the individual volumes which are like 25 NZD but the 3 in 1s are only 30 NZD at one place in my home town, Wellington.

Sorry, will stop my blabbering on and get back on topic, uhh began listening to this and it's just too damn catchy, so much so it's kept me awake at night with it echoing inside my skull over and over again.

Well good news for you...there is lots of it, lots and lots...

I took a pass on the formula shows for 8-12 year old japanese boys back in the 80s and 90s with dragon ball, flame of recca, ruroni kenshin TV etc...my preferences were for more serious shows, but then my first anime experience was space battleship yamato and i was watching bubblegum crisis as it was being released in japan in the late 1980s

Gone on a bit of classic Indie tip.

The two in particular are slightly before my time (I was a Britpop kid. Jarvis Cocker for Pope!), but are excellent examples of the overall sound.

First up, Sit Down by James. Poignant to me due to the various mental health struggles of me and mine, and how we’ve supported each other through some pretty dark days.




Then The Farm’s iconic song Altogether Now, written about the Christmas Truce of 1914. As something of a pacifist, the lyrics have always made me wish that soldiers and fighters just....wouldn’t. As in, what a different world we would live in if those doing the actual fighting just refused. Please don’t take this as an anti-military career type snobbery thing. I do respect those who choose to serve - I just can’t help but wonder what the world would be like if nobody chose to fight.

May be a repost. Can’t be bothered to check.

But as someone who got bored and mucked about too much at school. And as a result, wound up in dead end minimum wage jobs, got lucky once and ran with it?

This. I am by no conventional means particularly well off, but I no longer live hand to mouth, and only live pay cheque to pay cheque because I really, really need to learn financial discipline*

This is for me and people like me. We’ve been wage slaves. Paid the absolute minimum our employers could legally get away with and not a penny more - but pushed past, got lucky, and improved our lot.




For those feeling trapped in the minimum wage slog? I can only heartily recommend chancing your hand. It only takes one yes, and then a fair old amount of work. You can do it. I believe in you.

After watching one of my favourite YouTubers, It's A Gundam, he played this song briefly, which I used to play a lot back in 2017 or something. I think it lends perspective to a lot of small problems in the world; although a few of these are "upper class" problems, but they still qualify. Been a fan of Weird Al since I saw "The Saga Begins" back as a child.







Automatically Appended Next Post:
Been on a bit of a Weird Al binge right now and this was the song that made me a fan as a kid, watched this one Saturday morning during Squirt back in the day (and I was young enough to think the prequels were quality movies and to think Jar Jar Binks wasn't annoying as frig) I'd say weird Al tells the story of Episode One better than the movie itself, in all honesty.

Hey, man, thanks for introducing me to these!

More Weird Al. Ironically and hypocritically, when this first came out, I was so smug about a lot of this stuff. However, I still used "it's" instead of when "its" was necessary for years after listening to this until I did my 2nd year in my creative writing course...I still type my posts in bad grammar and blah blah blah still, but that's mostly out of laziness, though lol.

Another oddity to add to the list.

moved into the Bs

BAL SAGOTH

This is a mix of death metal, power metal, some orchestration and spoken word narrative story telling.

the first album was pretty much a death metal album with the other 5 albums expanding the sound as described above.

I think of it as a cross between arch enemy and rhapsody(of fire) for the easiest comparison.
