from [livejournal.com profile] glashund: "List five songs that you are currently digging ... it doesn't matter what genre they are from, whether they have words or even if they're any good but they must be songs you're really enjoying right now. Post these instructions, the artist and the song in your blog along with your five songs. Then tag five other people to see what they're listening to."

This is kinda hard. I haven't been listening to anything in particular, lately, just whatever iTunes serves up at random from my collection...

1. Animal (Gate), from Front 242's 05:22:09:12 Off. When I look in the mirror, all that I see/is a zoo animal that wants to be free...
2. Consumed, from Plastikman's Consumed.
3. Fish, by Mr. Scruff, from the Ninja Tune sampler Funkungfusion.
4. Turn It On (Bound 'n' Gagged mix), from The Creatures' U.S. Retrace ep.
5. The Crime Scene, from Barry Adamson's The King of Nothing Hill.

Okay, I was originally just going to share this link with Rik, but it makes me grin enough that I have to share it further. It's the soundtrack to a PC shoot-em-up with the delightfully stupid name of "Jets 'N Guns', and it's all a mad hybrid of chip tunes and hair metal.

There's more bleepy music for the downloading on monotonik.com - have a look about. A lot of it has a hint of 8-bit retro flavor to it, and many of the people involved were doing the 8-bit retro thing before it was hip - the site comes out of the Amiga demo scene world.

Scent of a Robot - a cute little hip-hop video about a guy who finds out he's a robot. Narratively, it's really kinda dark and unpleasant, but the music and character design are just so happy. (link from [livejournal.com profile] lediva)

I watch stuff on Cartoon Network now and then, now that I live in a house with cable. I've never been the one to turn it on. Mostly it's Stacey who has the desire to watch cartoons.

On one of CN's evening blocks - I think it's the "Toonami" one - a lot of the station IDs use Amon Tobin tracks. "Verbal" and I believe one or two other tracks off of the same album. "Verbal" is pretty distinctive because of the itchy sped-up-clipped-choppd voice percussion line.

And every time I hear that, my reaction is a mix of "Cool! Amon Tobin on national network TV!" and "Oh, geeze, now he's going to get all overexposed." Although he did the soundtrack to a videogame so I suppose he's well on the way to that anyway.

I dunno. Just a random bit of head-fluff.

I'm finally about to start work on 'Drowning City'; I have a piece of paper taped to the drawing board with my page sizes ruled out on them, I have pencils, I have a working Wacom tablet again, I have a scanner, I have some thumbnails of two test pages (to work the initial bugs out of my planned methodology)...

After ruling out said page sizes, I determined one final lack: Music.

Help me pick some. )
