This Dubstep Dance Will Blow Your Mind

Sometimes you run across things so damn cool there really doesn't need to be an explanation.

If you are feel especially skeptical today watch the traffic in the window's reflection.

Remembering Rammstein

Once in a great while these people we call Germans come to America to blow things up and spread their fascist derision to the masses. On May 15th, 2011 Germans came to the Seattle area in the form of Rammstein. After WWII Germany was cast underground only to thrive as a subterranean culture, hellbent on steel works, mining, petroleum disposal, and nuclear waste burning. Rammstein is a musical expression of this dwarven-like culture that has been tricked into appearing onstage for Americans to show us the vast dangers of fucking with people like Patton, Eisenhower, and Churchill.

Metro 2033

First Person Shooters usually aren't known for having a dynamic tone. It is usually a militaristic setting, where the player is some sort of soldier and some mission goes wrong that challenges your twitch reflex. The tone is usually set by fancy set pieces and characters who think they were cast in an Aliens remake. Metro 2033, while a flawed game, has specific tone that not many games (let alone films) have been able to pull off. The tone is sadness spawned by a dead world. Sounds emo, but I assure you, it works.
