Silver is stoked about a song by deadmau5, her latest favorite musician. She shares the video with me, and yes, dutiful mother that I am, I actually watch it...
Me: Okay, in that song, Rob Swire was the ghostly singer?
And is the musician pronounced "DEADMOUSE"? or "DEADMAUFIVE?"
Silver: no, actually
the guy who "died" was played by deadmau5 and yes, he has that tattoo on his neck in real life
it's pronounced "dead mouse"
Me: So who was Rob Swire?
Silver: the reason why it's spelled like that is because he couldn't fit it as a chatroom username when spelled correctly
the singer was Rob Swire
there's an actual version of the song without lyrics, it's a slightly different mix
I have both
also, deadmau5 is a huge nerd
he made several Minecraft references in his performances in LA
Me: Okay, is that music techno or what?
Silver: it's in a subgenre of electronica
he's "progressive house", apparently
funny thing is
Daft Punk is French house
and both Daft Punk and deadmau5 cover their faces when they perform
I wonder if it's a house music thing?
Me: And he wears the giant disco-ball-dead-mouse-head during performances?
and it has LEDs on it
so it can change expressions
he apparently has different ones
here, lemme find a pic...
Me: But is it still TECHNO?!
if AVTechNO! and Daft Punk are considered Techno, then deadmau5 is definitely techno
AVTechNO!'s new album is coming out in two days!!
this is one of the songs on it
Me: Now I have blogfodder, thanks!
if you're going to use a video...
I think you should use this one
also, deadmau5 likes Cthulhu
Me: No, Silver. I'm blogging this CHAT!
Silver: like, he's getting a Cthulhu tattoo and everything xD
during the LA concerts, Rob Swire went on stage and sang Ghosts N Stuff...in a ghost-sheet costume
also, deadmau5 is in Vegas right now
complimenting the weather
also, getting his tattoo
he was on Twitter WHILE getting the tattoo!
the creator of Minecraft even asked about it!
Me: GO DO YOUR HOMEWORK.
I'm blogging. :D
let's see if that link works
that's him wearing the LED mau5head
also, note the Bullet Bill t-shirt (from Mario)
Me: that's pretty freaky.
man, he's so cool
I want to go to one of his concerts someday
along with Daft Punk, AVTechNO! (if he ever has one), and Hatsune Miku
of note, he was the only electronica artist at Lolapalooza who performed at a main stage instead of in a "rave tent"
also, the Meowington's Hax tour?
named after his cat
Silver: also, a covalent bond is a bond in which an electron is shared between two atoms
just so ya know ;)
Me: yeah, I know that.
Silver: aaaaand I just realized that I could just type my stuff out instead of writing it
Me: Sheesh, do you think I'm a moron?
the college thinks I'm one
that was part of my biology homework!
I learned that in high school
Me: Yeah, I learned that in anatomy AND microbiology. And chemistry in high school.
Me: OKAY, DO YOUR HOMEWORK.
there is a Kagamine Rin cover of that PON PON PON song x.x
it's even worse
it's a LEN Kagamine cover
also, English subtitles
oh my goooooood
Silver: why is this so catchy?!
Me: NO, STOP
Silver: ah I see
Me: And I'm saying goodnight so I can blog.
I LOVE YOU!
Silver: PON is the onomatopoeia for clapping
let me know when you post it
