Stuff I Used To Listen To In Internets 1.0

Otherwise known as all the crap I used to have on Real Player. LOL, yes I used that hunk of junk before I ever switched to MP3's because of how small the files were in comparison.

Nowadays it's like whatever, but every now and then I realize I had songs back then that aren't inexactly easy to find nowadays...in fact, some of them I can't find whatsoever. For instance, there's this enhanced midi version of Castlevania's Vampire Killer that is ABSOLUTELY. FUCKING. PERFECT. Just the timing, everything in this remix is fucking perfect.

And now I can't find it.

Also Sade's "This Is No Ordinary Love" had a remix that was awesome, but I can't find anywhere anymore...and trust me, I've looked! There are some songs that have translated well over the years, but ultimately there's some songs I'll probably never be able to find again...and some that are possibly lurking on a data c.d. somewhere, moldering in my storage shed.

Or on one of my ten Zip discs. Yeah, you remember that? 10 bucks per 100 MB disc. OHHHHH BOY, I REMEMBER AOL AND THOSE OLD BROWSERS FROM BACK IN THE DAY. COMPUSERVE AND WHAT-NOT.

Man it sucked being poor, but these songs..just every now and then it haunts me, y'know?

So, let's see what I can find...either the actual songs, or translations thereof that is close.

Castlevania - Vampire Killer (this heavy metal remix by Ultracomicon is the closest that I can find to the mix I was speakin' of. Seriously, it even has the pause before the overreaching arc....plus on it's own it's just fuckin' awesome! Not as good, musically speakin', as the original version I speak of...but man, is this is a great cover!)


And while we're on Castlevania remixes I used to listen to back in Internets 1.0...

Castlevania - Bloody Tears (Heavy Version)


DIG that fucking coda, man!!!

Sade - This Is No Ordinary Love (out of all the remixes I've listened to currently up on Youtube, this is the closest to the one I'm thinkin' of...and it's damn near nothing like it. Erg. Still, good remix is good, so enjoy~!)


Jim's Big Ego - Addicted To Stress


Face to Face - Won't Lie Down


Wheatus - Teenage Dirtbag


Lost Prophets - Shinobi Versus Dragon Ninja


Mindless Self Indulgence - Bitches (y'know, THAT Pokemon/Dancing Pikachu AMV)


Cowboy Bebop - Tank! (you have NO idea how big of a weeaboo I was back then...but Cowboy Bebop and pretty much EVERYTHING on Toonami was godly, y'knowwhatImean? Undeniable. Truth.)


And just because, music from two of my fave games from that era. Man, do you guys remember Sierra's adult brand of games? 'Cuz I remember Sierra's adult brand of games, and I ain't talkin' 'bout Leisure Suit Larry or that weird labyrinthine RPG with Elvira.

No, I'm talkin' about Phantasmagoria (the first one, not the second which was fail in comparison), The 7th Guest, and Gabriel Knight.

Oh hell yes.

Phantasmagoria - Consumite Furore


The 7th Guest - Skeletons in my Closet


Well, there's plenty other songs that I COULD post but that'll do for now, y'know? Next time, be on the lookout for a healthy dose of rage-inducing hard rock and straight-up, no bull heavy metal.

'Cuz I'm kinda in the mood for some hard rock and straight-up, no bull heavy metal.

See ya then!

Sincerely,

~That Bastard

P.S. - Holy shit, how many of my posts have Jim's Big Ego in it? That's not even spelled properly, it should be Jims'. Anyway, I've really gotta make sure I'm not recycling songs TOO much here at Sooth(e)...>XD

LOL I stole this from Vorel. :D

Actually, I am flat-out stealing this from Vorel Kethend (http://modelingintherain.blogspot.com) who has been hangin' out doin' projects with our collective group for a small while now. Thoughtful and creative, she's definitely got an eye for design and art, and lately has been flexin' her muscle on music as well.

She's posted three songs for the Bone King's Daughter (which you can read more 'bout over at her site, my version of it over at Nerf All The Things, or at the recently opened Jaded Shots: http://jadedshots.blogspot.com), an upcoming shoot we're both involved in, and I figured "Hey, why the hell not? They're pretty fuckin' good, and go with the photo shot, so...yeah!"

So here ya go. Go ahead and let Vee know that I stole these from her if you decide to go over and check out her blog. :D A new background each month, lol...

Loreena McKennitt - The Old Ways


Loreena McKennitt - Dante's Prayer


Loreena McKennitt - All Soul's Night


Yeah, all dat pagan, all dem chill songs.

Be on the lookout for the first Bone King's Daughter photo shoot comin' out soon once we get the photos agreed upon and dealt with and, some time after that, Bone King's Daughter II: Adversaries of the Grave. Naturally, since it stars not just one but BOTH of the Hooligans (Ace will be in the sequel, and possibly a good friend o' Vee's), we'll steal the pics and slap 'em up, narration and opening sound bytes and all, over at Nerf once they get done!

LOL, I'm a model. LOL, we're models.

Sincerely,

~That Bastard
