what the fuck

this is the scariest shit i’ve ever seen in my life

This is so cool. Eat Otomo Yoshihide’s heart out.

I’m used to associating this sort of heavy creepy distortion type audio as being achieved by internal studio mixing. Picking sections, warping them, reversing, repeating, all that sort of thing done with the board tools and programming suites. I didn’t stop to think that the same sort of effects could be achieved PHYSICALLY by fucking with the playback tools and the storage mediums themelves. It’s incredibly clever, especially when they introduce the cut-apart and reconstructed vinyl platters, it becomes the audio equivalent of cut-paste collaging or magnetic poetry. It takes something as ethereal and insubstantial as music, and makes it as tangible as sculpture.

Whoa.

Happy Birthday Kids Next Door!
Okay so it was actually yesterday I’m just a day late.  But 10 years ago from yesterday, the very first episode of Kid Next Door aired.  I was 10 years old when the show first appeared on TV, and while I guess I’m technically an adult now I still have fond memories of this wonderfully imaginative show.  The world was creative, the characters were diverse and memorable, and the stories had a good balance of humor, action, and heart.
KND has a special place in my heart because I actually got to meet the creator in person and tour the studios while it was still in production.  I still recall seeing posters of KND hamsters and the Vitruvian Numbuh 1 while walking around.  It was my first glimpse into the whole animation process, I got to see storyboards, backgrounds, and things of that nature.  I have no doubt in my mind that this magical day provided some of my inspiration towards becoming an animator myself.  And here I am today, in my Junior year of college, studying animation.
So thanks KND, and happy 10th anniversary~ May you have your cake (or the Delightful Children’s) and eat it too!
