Inspirations: Movies, Music, Websites etc.
« on: September 06, 2010, 09:35:25 AM »
This thread is the place to put links or descriptions for everything that inspires you, aside from FRUA (or that inspires to to write stuff for FRUA) - at least if you don't want to start a new thread for it.



I will start by praising James Rolfe aka The Angry Video Game Nerd.

I've been watching his hilarious reviews of (mostly bad) nostalgic games for years, and it never gets old (even if the games are mostly old).

Unfortunately, he did not review "Pool of Radiance" for NES yet - it might not meet his criteria for a "shitty game".

If you don't know him yet (there might be some who haven't heard of him), check out the Nerd. His latest video is sort of a sequel to some of his older reviews, but the classic review of Moonwalker is a good place to start. :)

I don't know about Dragon Warrior, but the Friday the 13th one is here.

Should I put a warning in here regarding the language?  ;)


Anyway, the Nerd's title song 'ear-wormed' me endlessly and mercilessly.

Nice videos... you could almost think the Watchmen one was authentic. :)

Whatever Marvel is hoping to do with their Avengers movie, Bollywood are obviously already accomplished experts at:

Some people just can't hold their orange juice. 

You know, a number of artists have done illustrations, which can found about the internet, of different superheroes doing the batusi.  Maybe I'll convert one of those pics for Rocco's mod...

Wow. I'm accustomed to music in the pentatonic scale, but that was actually painful to watch.
