It's time for Brian's Top 20 Creepiest Songs List!

So there are a lot of different types of creepy...there's like haunting creepy, disturbing creepy, gross creepy, screaming girls creepy, and the list goes on. Therefore these songs are somewhat difficult to rate, but in this case, I just put them in the order of which songs personally creep me out the most based on how they sound (not so much on their lyrics or anything. Although many of them are also creeepy.) So here we go! Click on the song title to listen to it.

1. Radiohead - Climbing Up The Walls
First on the list, by default, is Radiohead. They should automatically take first in any creepy songs list because they're Radiohead. It's really quite unfair, because nobody can hope to compete with them. And this song....takes the cake. The creepy cake. So it's #1.

2. Showbread - Sampsa Meets Kafka
Next up is Showbread. This song is only 1:20 long but sweet mother of all that is jibbly jibblies, does it ever come in 2nd! *shudder*

3. Muse - Micro Cuts
In 3rd we have Muse with their very shrill song: Micro Cuts. Not only is the song itself super creepy...but so is the fact that this guy can even sing as high as he does. Yikes.

4. Björk - Declare Independence
Björk has problems. I think it's the fact that she's Icelandic. The result is some truly disturbing music, and this song is most definitely no exception. The part at 2:30 makes me want to curl up and hide in a corner.

5. Radiohead - We Suck Young Blood
Hey look, it's Radiohead again! What a surprise! I don't know, maybe this song should be higher on the list. I just feel bad for the other bands because it's so hard to be this creepy, so I guess I'll leave it at five and make everybody else feel like they've got a fighting chance. =þ

6. Sleepytime Gorilla Museum - Sleep Is Wrong
uuuhhhh........yeah I don't even know man. They're avant-garde metal, what can you do? I'll just say they're disturbingly creepy and move on.

7. Muse - Yes Please
I'd actually never heard this song until just now when I found it on Andrew's previous creepy songs list. I thought it was worthy of mine as well.

8. DIES - Does This Inspire You?
DIES is a solo project by Showbread's lead singer, and this song has similarities to Sampsa Meets Kafka, so it got on the list without too much trouble.

9. Björk - Hunter
Yet another creepy song brought about by Björk's Icelandic peculiarities. A different kind of creepy than Declare Independence, but the haunting vocal effects and the weird techno-string things put it at number 9 on the list. (P.S. Watch the video at your own risk. Seriously, this girl is weird, man. o_0 )

10. Flyleaf - I'm So Sick
Awww, Flyleaf! Awww, girl's screaming! Ahhhh, nightmares!!

11. Norma Jean - Face:Face
This song actually used to scare me when I was like 10 or 11. I've grown to like Norma Jean over time, after hearing some of their other stuff, but the bad dreams this song gave me didn't help any. =þ

12. Evanescence - Hauted
This song's chorus is fairly normal sounding, but the verses are....haunting. Who would've thought?

13. Skillet - Fingernails
John Cooper would do well to make more heavy disturbing songs like this one. He's just got such a good voice for it. =D

14. I Am Ghost - Dark Carnival Of The Immaculate
I Am Ghost almost always mentions either death, kisses, vampires, darkness, and some other disturbing things in like...all of their songs. They'd definitely be higher on the list if my rating was based off of lyrical content. o_O

15. Project 86 - Solace
It's those ghostlike background voices, man. Yikes.

16. Blindside - King of The Closet
Yay, vampires! Vampires are creepy! Hence, this song is creepy because it's about vampires! ...oh wait, I said I wasn't judging lyrics. Weeell...he does have a creepy-ish scream, and the chorus is somewhat disturbing. And this song used to scare me alongside Norma Jean. ^_^

17. Project 86 - Chimes
Any song called Chimes that has soft whispery lyrics sung beside a low thumping bass like this, with heavy pounding guitar in the chorus, gets a place on my creepy songs list.

18. The Used - Bird and The Worm
This song isn't too creepy in like the chorus and stuff, but the deep choir voices and the weird string plucking gets it a place on the wall of my Hallway of Creepy Songs.

19. Johnny Cash - Hurt
At first I thought the Nine Inch Nails version of this was creepier, due to the weird guitar...but then I thought, "This is a creepy Nine Inch Nails song that is being sung by an old folk singer." And I found that somewhat disturbing, so I voted for Mr. Cash.

20. Decaying Lawn - ZOMG Teh Fairies
I just added this one 'cause I needed a 20th song. Not to mention the fact that being on a Top 20 Creepiest Songs List will get us more publicity. h00ray! It is creepy, but mostly it just makes me laugh. Hai!

This song really really creeps me out but I've watched it like 4 or 5 times now. Why am I so drawn to really creepy things? O_O

Well, I guess I'd better go to bed and get my inevitable nightmares over with.

One of David's Might Men killed more bad guys in one real life encounter, than I can even kill in one virtual round on Dynasty Warriors. ...which is a game all about hosing mans by the quantities, so that's saying a lot. Dude.

Upon further research, I've found that parkour and free running are actually different activities. Parkour says get from point A to point B as fast as possible while conserving as much energy as you can (useful for escaping bad guys), whereas Free Running is more like get from point A to point B as fast as you can and do a bunch of sweet looking moves on the way (in other words, they aren't concerned about your energy levels so much as long as you look cool).

Therefore, Andrew and I hope to be free runners rather than traceurs. Who knew? ^_^
Current future life update (current future?)...So the plan is, I'm going to sell pretty much everything I own except for maybe my work clothes and give the money to the poor through whatever organization seems best. Various reasons include, demonstrating to the Lord that I love Him more than I love my possessions, being free of distractions to let Him work with me, doing what I feel he wants me to do, and just as an adventure to kind of see what comes of it and what it's like to be free of stuff. And there are more reasons and benefits, I'm sure. I'm just glad he hasn't asked me to give him my only son (I don't have one by the way) like Abraham. =P

Then, this is something that came up last night, so it's not entirely solid, but I think I might go to some other town or somewhere for about a week or so and just either live out in the streets or in a vehicle if I have access to one, and take nothing with me but the clothes on my back and my Bible. Maybe a guitar or something. That plan still needs some more thought though.

Anyway, if you desperately want any of my things, I'll probably sell it to you for less than I got it (unless I got it for free as a gift, heh). I've got a washburn guitar, a keytar, a melodica, some pretty sweet superhero shirts, and like...stuff. I think I'll give Andrew first pick at my CDs since he'll appreciate it most, heh. yep. Hai!

Kristen's MAWWIED! She looked pretty amazing, I'm not gonna lie. I looked really silly, 'cause I had my Siper-Mans tie and I forgot my shoes, so I was wearing my gold ones, and an all black suit. o_0

I was kind of hanging out with Ethan, so I didn't actually see the wedding (I kind of saw her walking down the isle through a window) but I heard it was pretty splattering, so that's good. And I drank about a pitcher and a half of water in one sitting. Whoas. And ummm...I jumped over a lot of railings? And Kristen and Ben danced and they were like kissing and it was REALLY GROSS. I didn't look. Aaaaaaand...uhhh...I read 2 graphic novels. ummm...and THE END!!

EDIT: Pictures attack!

Today I found that I can drop about 11.5 feet, and that's when my landings get a bit jarring. >_<

Also, I learned tonight that my sister's getting married this Friday. WEIRD!! Time to get out the Spider-Man tie, I suppose.

Limber Leapin' Leopards! I didn't realize it, but Andrew posted the movies from the mewithoutYou concert we went to a few months back! (before his camera got confiscated, so we didn't get to film Thrice or Brand New. >_< )

These guys are so funny. Watch the drummer raise his sticks in A Sweater Poorly Knit when they're singing "aaaahhhhh" just before the 40 second mark. What a loon! XD

Thursday, February 14, 2008

Now for the annual Valentine's Day picture! (except for last year when I couldn't find it. >_< )

And also, some people have a ding-bell thing for when customers want service at the counter...well WE bought a 6 inch Chinese gong! Our café is the coolest. XD

EDIT: And also also, Andrew and I have decided that we're going to spend our entire Summer doing parkour. We're going to get as good as this guy.

As of yesterday, I now have a 100 year old great grandma! Do I get a pwize? =D

(wow, and Ethan and Evelyn have a 100 year old great great grandma. O_O )

There's nothing quite like going home after an utterly painful and long day at work, and playing Dynasty Warriors. Awww, relief. XD

"I'll show you SSSTRENGTH!!"

Now in hopes that you'll all completely forget about my metalodica movie, I shall post a NEW one!

(not that this one is very redeeming. >_< )

People really creep me out sometimes. Why can't everybody just know!? If they did, maybe I wouldn't have such a desire to go live alone on an island. =P

And now for some retarded melodica movies.

The Arcade F*re - Crown of Love

And for you METALODICA fans...The Chariot - Then Came To Kill

Tuesday, February 05, 2008

GUESS WHO HAS A MELODICA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm happy. ^_^
