band is over

anonymous asked:

Do you know if Eric had a history of an explosive temper before Littleton?

No, I don’t believe so. At least, not that we know of. His temper became a thing after his family moved the umpteenth time and to a place he hated out of all the places they’d moved to. Given Eric’s age range by the time they moved to Colorado, it’s likely a combination of unexpressed emotions/rage and hormones surging to a head. All his medication did was put a band-aid over it.

why do ppl mock The Indie Girl Voice™ so much when The Pop Punk Guy Voice™ is one of the worst and most grating singing styles ever

It was a period of great boredom.
The Wander Over Yonder Crew,
having one of several extended lunches,
discussed ideal cross-overs for their
beloved orange hairy spoon.

During the lunch, two
Staffers conceived of a
crossover with Disney’s ultimate weapon, STAR
WARS, a property so massive that
they’d never let us near it.

In a completely unofficial, fan art capacity,
those two staffers created a comic
about a strange encounter
somewhere in the galaxy…

Again, very very unofficial.  Entirely not for profit.  Please don’t sue us.

The neural network will name your next band

An important part of starting a new band is choosing an appropriate name. It is crucial that the name be unique, or you could risk at best confusion, and at worst an expensive lawsuit.

The neural network is here to help.

Prof. Mark Riedl of Georgia Tech, who recently provided the world a dataset of all the stories with plot summaries on Wikipedia, (enabling this post on neural net story names) now used his Wikipedia-extraction skills to produce a list of all the bands with listed discographies - about 84,000 in all.

I gave the list to the Char-rnn neural network framework, and it was soon producing unique band names for a variety of genres. Below are examples of its output at various temperature (i.e. creativity) settings.

Temperature 1.1

This is about as high as the creativity setting can go before most of the band names are unpronounceable jumbles. These are some fine band names, highly suitable for whatever the heck their genres are supposed to be.

Spice Green Robinson
Gloome Schronnana
Boofpas
The Freights
Nighty Daggers
The Loveburners of Internal Watch
Foxettes Ratimot Secret singer band
The Dougloco
The Theps
Choconard Leach
Rhoudemsquat
Terrerssky?
Flemz
Mighty Chipping Baker
Bop Gray (band)

Temperature 1.0

With the creativity turned down a bit, the band names are still weird, but a bit more plausible. Their genres can sometimes be identified.

For example, I think these are probably traditional Irish bands?

The Durks of Audun Green
Sherry of Shinking Feavan
The Shurping Laudst

And these might work as metal bands:

Rabidass (band)
Killerlet (musician)
Brokin’s Killer
Flish Lipe
Supervillin
Girl Dead

These are perhaps a bit less scrutable.

Dr Overhard
The Arce (band)
The Tree Misters
Reilling Ef (rapper)
Flim Brothers
Ching Mage
Nan Edwards (folk singer)
Nittle Bizzy
The Dinlakoposseps
Skins of Space
Michael Porker
The Lost singers
The Nutlet Band
The Rogue Orchestra
The Fuman.A.I.((band)
Vervoly Brown (urtist)
Boohalloid (group)
The Ballening Birds
Lice Stepley

Temperature 0.9

With the creativity turned down a notch further, the band names become even more plausible. You could probably convince me that these exist.

No Andrew Newson
Fuzion (band)
The Wurfywinders
Clay Fights
Berry Stitcher
Something Rothers
The Awl
The Thingsons
Switch’s Rich
Lug
Pond Billy
The Hums (band)
Northern Prince (Indian band)
Staff Killer

Temperature 0.6

Turn the creativity down another notch, and we start to edge toward the neural network’s idea of the most quintessential band names. Note that they’re still pretty weird.

Dub Arts
Sheet Rose
Heart Coil
Elliot Horse
Big Love
The Mothers (band)
The Time Stars
Hulls of Girls
Sucken (band)
Electric Sing Show
The Pans
Symphony No. 3 (Dinish band)
Hell Staple (band)
Peter Parker
Bad Head
The Out Cookers
Flower Shankar
The Hat Coles

Temperature 0.3

Now at a creativity setting of only 0.3, almost all the band names are variations on “The [Noun]”.

The Shines
The Deaths
The Dance (band)
The Livers (band)
The Stone Choir
The Shake Man (band)

Another strange thing happens, which is that the proportion of sharks goes way, way up. Apparently the neural network thinks that if you’re going to name a band, you can’t go wrong with sharks.

Johnny Shark
The Shark Charles
Shark Rander
The Shark (band)
Nicole Shark
Shark Gordon
Shark Taylor (musician)
The Shark Singers
Tony Shark

Temperature 0.01

And now we come to the lowest temperature setting, where the neural network’s output consists of the most-quintessential band name, repeated over and over. Throughout most of the training process, this name was “The Stars” and occasionally “The Brothers”, but there was one generation where the neural network repeatedly insisted that there was nothing… nothing more fundamental to music than the banjo-playing skills of:

Steve Martin (musician)
Steve Martin (musician)
Steve Martin (musician)
Steve Martin (musician)
Steve Martin (musician)
Steve Martin (musician)
Steve Martin (musician)

TMGB WOY Original Theme Song Demo (6-22-12)

ORIGINAL WOY THEME SONG DEMO RECORDING!

I found this little treat while backing up an old hard drive.  It’s the first theme song demo we submitted to the Wander Over Yonder folks back in 2012!  Music by me, lyrics by Craig McC, performed by The Two Man Gentlemen Band.

The band was on tour when Disney first reached out to us to submit some ideas for the theme song.  We didn’t have time in the tour schedule to get into a recording studio so we sang this into my iPhone in a hotel room somewhere in Virginia.  Lo-fi wins again!

You’ll probably notice right away that this isn’t the tune that ended up being the theme song.  But, we did get to use it in the Little Guy.  And I’ve snuck the melody into the score a few times, too, usually when Wander and Sylvia are having a “friendship” moment.  It’s one of my favorite things that I’ve ever written.

Enjoy!

MARCHING BAND…LUCIO ??? his gun thing is a poorly drawn mellophone and his backpack would be a cute drum..speaker

i know nothing of band, i took home econ

Every time I see a post about how Twenty One Pilots should replace someone in the Emo Trinity I’m like “No. Guys, you’re missing the joke”

If any of them were replaced the original joke of the Emo Trinity is totally lost. (And let’s be honest it’s more of the Classic Emo Trinity)

The Father: Fall Out Boy. Pete Wentz had a record label that allowed him to sign a lot of the bands that were popular around the time emo music was really mainstream. Most of those bands aren’t around anymore for whatever reason.

The Son: Panic! at the Disco. Ryan Ross sent a bunch of annoying messages to Pete plus Panic!’s demo and Pete listened to it and was like “damn this is actually good I need to make a record label so I can sign these guys” 

The Holy Ghost: My Chemical Romance. Not only are they probably the most iconic emo band to have ever released an album the joke started after they broke up. 

Anyway I think people have forgotten that being part of the Emo Trinity isn’t some honor a band or artist earns over time. It was literally a joke that turned into a nickname for those three bands and the joke only works with those three bands

By night, they play gigs. By day, they sample ramen in cities across America.

They’re the three women of Shonen Knife, a legendary rock band from Japan. For over 35 years, the band has been serving up infectious punk songs with a delicious twist: Many of them are about food. Think song titles like “Wasabi,” “Hot Chocolate” and “Sushi Bar.” But don’t dismiss them as bubblegum pop: Over the years, some of their biggest fans have included giants of alt-rock music.

This spring, Shonen Knife embarked on its latest adventure – a ramen rock tour of the U.S.

Why ramen? Well, ramen is really like Japanese soul food, says Daisuke Utagawa, a ramen restaurateur in Washington, D.C., and unofficial ambassador of Japanese food culture. “It’s probably as important as your pizza here.”
