An animation of a famous dialogue between Dracula and Richter Belmont from Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, except the script was re-written by a collection of fans attempting to recite it in a Discord chat.
Jacob Collier, “Sleeping On My Dreams”
I wish I could get out of my head and simply use this blog as a repository of items that make me feel frisson.
This video’s a stellar, absorbing experience!
Merfish, “A Good Kid”
Merfish, “Chop Roasts Franklin”
Sorry it’s all games on the blog lately, but it’s 2021: games are the only art left.
SiIvagunner, “DK Rap (Extended Mix) – Donkey Kong 64”
This is Eminem’s “Rap God” constructed out of samples from the DK Rap. It also repurposes several songs from the Donkey Kong 64 soundtrack. Remarkable, futuristic.

Let’s Game It Out, “I Built a Theme Park of Perpetual Torment in Planet Coaster”
Mr. Bones for the Zoomers. I was laughing out loud for 70% of this video. Out loud.
Smashed Mouths – All Star Deepfake Smashup [wav2lip]
Hoo boy. The song ushering in the end of reality.
Joywave, “Somebody New”
I saw this video when it first came out, but I’m not sure why I didn’t lock into my brain at the time. This homage to HelixSnake’s legendary Skate videos is an ironclad example of music video pacing. I’ve said it once, I’ll say it a million times: start with a concept and narrative, expanding both until an overwhelming climax– turn the knob from 1 to 10… And then jump it to 20 in the last half-minute.
Jump it like a skateboard jumping the city.
Jeremy Frisch, “I Yield My Time (Mike Relm remix)”
Modern Day LA Legend
