These Are the Days

Last month I discovered that news travels fast in the brony community. Likewise I was reminded, that those folks are, above all else, gracious. So, y'know, thanks for all that traffic and the all kind words, bronies!

And while I imagine everypony has already heard about this one, those of you that don't have an army of the MLP-faithful bending your ear toward the new sounds of Equestria may have missed a recent fan-centered mash-up release.

Discord Days is a full 20 minutes of Gorillaz's Demon Days cast against music and dialog from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic from YouTuber and veritable geek-of-all-trades Psycosis. It's provided as a free download as both a continuous mix and cut into 15 bite-sized pieces. Whatever's your pleasure.

Give the embed below a gander to try this ambitious project on for size, and much love to my pal Jarod for passing this one my way!

New Year, New You

It's officially been 2012 for a few days now, but I've had trouble pulling together a proper new blog post as I have been playing Skyrim very busy doing super important stuff and in no way goofing off. Since this is my first piece of the year, I kinda felt as though it should be both indicative of the one we just left behind and – how shall I say? – prophetic of the 12 months to come. And thus it seemed rather fitting that I present some new hotness from two of the biggest movers/shakers of 2011.

The first serving of awesome is from none other than our pal Mega Ran. It's a distinctly old school video for Mega Ran 10 joint "Lookin' Up." That's a song that I recently cited as one of the most important single tracks of the year, as well as a new personal favorite from Random's always satisfying repertoire.

The second is a new track from my brother Adam WarRock. It's the debut single (and de facto teaser) from Euge's upcoming release You Dare Call That Thing Human?!? While the full album is slated to drop on February 13, you can enjoy "616," resplendent with lyrical allusions to Marvel's prime continuity, right the fuck now.
