i watch that video a lot

anonymous asked:

can you make a checklist on how to get into the gorillaz?? It seems like there is a lot out there and its hard to follow when i'm getting into it late.. thank you!!

Sure!! I personally got into them by watching their G-bitez and music videos and it all kinda spiraled from there.

The band itself was made by Damon Albarn (Lead singer of Blur, does vocals and writes lyrics for Gorillaz) and Jamie Hewlett (Co-creator of the comic book “Tank Girl”, draws and animates for Gorillaz) after they were both watching MTV and they were like “hey music today sucks you know what’d be cool?? if we made an animated band” “cool we could call it ‘gorilla’ because we were both born on the year of the monkey!!!” sadly animal planet had already copyrighted “gorilla” so they just added a z to the end of it to make it cooler.

Here’s a playlist of all of their music videos/unfinished storyboards i put together (they’re all in order according to the storyline, but keep in mind that “do ya thing” isn’t canon): https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLupIZC02E6mRz_uqFp8BiLuEZ3-ZUjJZB

Here’s a list of all of their interviews I’ve been able to find (You can learn a lot about the characters from these babies): https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLupIZC02E6mT1RKRtEIu2RA4AraQnGnqu

Aaand here’s a list of all of their songs (there’s a bunch). Every one of them sorted from oldest to newest, every song after “We’ve got the power” is either a demo, rare or unreleased: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLupIZC02E6mTeUgeN3TVDF1kUgM11wlFI

Something to know about Gorillaz is that they have “phases”. Phase 1 was in 2001, when they released their albums “Gorillaz”, “G-Sides” and “Laika come home”. Phase 1′s art style was cartoonish and used very thick lineart. Phase 2 was in 2005, when they released “Demon Days” and “D-sides”. Phase 2′s art style was a bit dark and looked more realistic. Phase 3 was in 2010, when they released the albums “Plastic Beach” and “The Fall” in 2011. Phase 3′s art style was almost the same as phase 2′s. Then we have Phase 4 in 2017, their new album “Humanz” is coming out April 28th. It’s art style is the one that stands out the most to me, you can find most of the art on Jamie Hewlett’s Instragram (Hewll)

Alright, a big part of me getting into the fandom was my love fore the characters. I’m assuming you’re not a fan yet, so let me introduce them to you (i’m going to use powerpoints to explain each member if u don’t mind):

This lovely lad here is Murdoc Faust Niccals.

- He’s the band’s leader/bassist, and he makes sure EVERYONE knows that’s it’s his band and only his.
- He went through multiple other bands before he formed Gorillaz.
- He was born on June 6th, 1966 in Stoke-on-Trent, England. As an infant he was abandoned on his father’s doorstep.
- Had a very rough childhood, his father, Sebastian Niccals, would force him to preform on stage for booze money and it was absolutely humiliating for him.
- His nose has been broken a of total 8 times. The first time was from a bully at his school, the 2nd time was from his older (and only) brother, Hannibal, because Murdoc had touched his records.
- His middle name was originally “Alphonse” but he changed it to “Faust” after making a deal with the Devil in phase 1 to make Gorillaz the “biggest band in the world”. That’s also how he got his bass, “El Diablo”.
- did i mention he was a satanist bc he is
- He hangs around in his underwear a lot (especially in phase 2)
- He likes to either get naked or start pelvic thrusting in like every video, so be careful, young anon.
- He’s very crude but sometimes he can be very nice and adorable in some interviews ??? It’s so weird
- He likes making weird noises, like, a lot.
- Apparently can speak French
- His reason for turning green all of the sudden in phase 2 is either because of alcohol poisoning or due to him tanning himself green. We really don’t know
- He had a pet raven in phase 2!!! His name was Cortez and no one really
knows what happened to him but Murdoc seemed to love that bird.
- He also had a cape in phase 2 that he loved and wore like all the time but he lost it. Poor baby.
- He was based off of a young 1960′s era Keith Richards.
- He has a tongue longer than Gene Simmons’ and I’m not even kidding. His tongue is like a foot long
- His genuine laugh can cure cancer
- He had his own MTV cribs episode
- Here’s a playlist of every interview he’s been in if you’d like to know a bit more about how he acts.
- All of this sounds horrible but like half of the fandom sees him as charming and funny and the other half sees him as repulsive and downright mean so i guess listen to some of his interviews and make your decision (i’m part of the half that loves him)

This is 2D!!

- He’s the band’s singer, sometimes he plays the piano and melodica too.
- He’s anxious and a bit timid around people. He’s not that intelligent, but he’s an absolute sweetheart to pretty much everyone. He’s … a huge dork.
- He was born on May 23rd, 1978.  He was born in Hertfordshire, England and was raised in Crawley, England. When he was 10 he fell out of a tree and landed on his head, his hair fell out and grew back blue. He’s had horrible headaches since then, but his mother was a nurse and gave pills to help him out.
- His real name is Stuart Pot
- He loves horror films!!! Especially zombie movies.
- Apparently he smells like butterscotch
- He’s VERY tall. he’s like 6′1 and his legs make up most of his body. He towers over the rest of the band.
- He has a crippling fear of whales
- His eyes are black due to an 8-ball fracture that Murdoc gave him when he crashed his car into the music store 2D worked at.
- His eyes turn white when he’s stressed or scared.
- His nickname “2D” stands for “Two Dents”. He’s called that because Murdoc also gave him two dents in his head after crashing his car into him
- Murdoc is seen physically abusing 2D sometimes throughout phase 1-3, but there’s a very likely chance that he’s going to stop and make amends in phase 4!!!
- Here’s a playlist of interviews that he’s been in
- Everybody loves him. I love him. I don’t think it’s possible not to love him.

   

This is Russel Hobbs!!

- He’s the band’s drummer.  He helps with remixes too!!!
- The living embodiment of “looks like he could kill you but is actually a cinnamon roll”
- Quite possibly the most underrated character in the world
- He was born in Brooklyn, New York on June 3rd, 1975. He got possessed by a demon as a kid and fell into a coma for four years. After he woke up the demon got expelled tho
- When he was a teen, him and his friends were involved in a drive-by shooting. Russel was the only survivor and all of his friends possessed him, but the only one we really get to see is his closest friend, Del, he raps in Clint Eastwood and Rock the House, but we haven’t seen him since phase 1. 
- After the whole shooting incident he was sent to the UK to live with his uncle.
- HE SAVED 2D FROM BEING EATEN BY A WHALE. HE’S SO UNDERAPPRECIATED 
- He’s an actual giant in phase 3 because he ate some radioactive jellyfish
- He loves fezzes!!!
- His hobby, besides music, is taxidermy.
- He’s the dad friend
- Here’s a playlist of interviews that he’s been in

Last but not least, this is Noodle

- She plays guitar for the band
- Noodle is very energetic and nice but she can also kick ur ass
- She was born in Osaka, Japan on October 31st 1990
- She joined the band when she was around 11 but she’s like 26 now. I forgot to mention that the band ages with real time
- As a kid she was a part of a classified child super solider project under the management of a japanese scientist named Mr. Kyuzo. this is where she learned how to be badass. She knew professional karate at like 10 how cool is that
- All of the children in that project were deemed too unstable and dangerous, so they canceled the experiment and Mr. Kyuzo was ordered to kill all of the children (fuckin dark i know). After killing them all, Mr. Kyuzo was reluctant to kill Noodle, so instead he put her in a state of amnesia and smuggled her to the UK by shipping her to Kong Studios in a FedEx crate.
- She didn’t remember anything!!! The only english thing she was able to say to say was “noodle” and that’s where she got her name.
- She learned how to speak english and remembered her past in phase 2.
- Murdoc, 2D and Russel raised her (mostly russel tho). Noodle considers Murdoc and 2D her brothers and Russel considers her his daughter how CUTE IS THAT
- She loves Pokemon
- She had a flying windmill island in phase 2 it was incredible
- She had a cute radio helmet in phase 1 
- She also has a robot version of herself called “Cyborg Noodle” in phase 3. It’s a long story but Cyborg might be coming back for phase 4.
- The interviews that she’s in can be found here!!

The backstory is too long for me to write down, but you can find it over here! I hope i explained everything clearly- if not, or if you have any questions, feel free to send me a message!! I hope this helps you c:

I was watching a music video when in the background I spied some awkward noodle sitting in the background and I was like, "Holy crap, this is my 'I saw Buttons in reality' moment." The video is Lizzo - Phone at ~1:43; I guess he's checking out the dude in them sweet suspenders?

*snort* I see him
he looks like he’s missing his old suspenders

Did you see him in this scene though?

Mark , or as I like to call my hero. A guy who makes videos on the internet. A guy who does stupid stuff to make people laugh. A guy who saved my life. You have saved people’s lives. A lot of them.

anonymous asked:

Ur right jb and yj both look squishier lately and ummm the idea of them both eating midnight snacks together is the cutest gd thing I've ever heard and I have a cavity now 😭

LMAO, IT’S ACTUALLY A FACT. I forgot what interview or video, or internet cafe thing they did, but 2jae admitted to being night owls that always late night snack. XDDDD 

So I’m just imagining them hanging out in each others rooms playing games and snacking. I always picture Youngjae playing online games and Jb just watching him play because he finds it entertaining plus he just enjoys Youngjae’s company~ <3

anonymous asked:

Have you ever considered that your diet actively contributes to your obesity? Like and that obesity causes a lot if health problems? So maybe cool it with the deep fried cheese??

The funny thing is that I didn’t eat the cheese, I just filmed it. But you watched it, like… Watched my video and decided that you wanted to judge but were too damn scared to actually put your name to it.

Why don’t you save yourself the stress of worrying about my diet, stress is VERY bad for your health you know.

anonymous asked:

I just watched a few of James Rofle/AVGN's reccent videos on Power Rangers, and although it felt like there's still a lot he doesn't know/got wrong irt Tokusatsu, he WAS right in that there is a LOT of overlap between Tokusatsu and Anime (& Japanese media in general), in terms of specific genres and traits (giant robos, etc.). Do you think that we have Shotaro Ishimori, Eiji Tsubaraya and Go Nagai, among others that I'm probably forgetting/I don't know, to thank for that; the former especially?

Oh yes we do!  All of the gentlemen you mentioned above also dabbled in anime (not so much Eiji Tsuburaya himself but his production company certainly did).  In fact, Go Nagai was an apprentice to Shotaro Ishinomori as a manga writer before branching out on his own and Ishinomori was apprenticed to the God of Manga himself, Osamu Tezuka. 

In fact, the very first five man team in history was in an anime from 1966 called Rainbow Sentai which was created by Shotaro Ishinomori.

Of course, we also have to acknowledge the debt Super Sentai owes to Tatsunoko Productions and Kagaku Ninjatai Gatchaman, which brought a lot of the tropes that would later become accepted in the live action medium to the forefront.

Heck, one of the most popular pre-Power Ranger Super Sentai series was a direct homage to Gatchaman, 1991′s Choujin Sentai Jetman.

Ishinomori was such a force in manga, anime and tokusatsu.  I could go on and on about his contributions including; Kamen Rider, The Toei Fushigi Comedy Series, Brother Fist Bycrosser, Cyborg 009, Android Kikaider but that would take the entire rest of this ask and we have other people to talk about!

Go Nagai was no slouch either.  He pretty much popularized the concept of the piloted giant robot with his seminal work, Mazinger Z.

Before that, of course, we had Tetsujin 28 and Giant Robo but those were robots remote controlled or self-controlled.  Go Nagai pretty much invented the over the top giant, piloted robot.  The success of which lead to a deal with Marvel Comics to license these giant robots for an American comic and allowed the Japanese to use Marvel properties, which lead to the tokusatsu Spider-Man.  Spider-Man was given a giant robot to sell the concept in Japan and that, in turn, lead to the giant robots being added to the Sentai franchise to create Super Sentai.

Go Nagai was no stranger to tokusatsu either.  Among his toku works were;

Star of Pro-Wrestling Azteckaiser

and Battle Hawk

As for Tsuburaya Productions, they had a hand in some anime as well including animated versions of Ultraman.

And one of my personal favorites, the weird anime/tokusatsu hybrid Dinosaur War Aizenborg!

That’s not even to mention all the writers, directors and producers who have worked on both tokusatsu and anime.  An example today is Gen Urobuchi who is responsible for both Puella Magi Madoka Magika

and Kamen Rider Gaim

He’s even currently working on the anime adaptation of one of the grand-daddies of tokusatsu, Godzilla!

So yeah, tokusatsu and anime are so intertwined it would be hard to separate one from the other.  They draw inspiration from each other, share talent and help influence Japanese culture in general.  If it hadn’t been for being in the anime fandom in the early 1990s, -I- never would have gotten into tokusatsu!

This is really only scratching the surface of a very interesting topic and I wish I had more time to get really in depth with it but I don’t.  I hope this at least helps to answer your question.

Edit: I totally loved James Rolfe’s Power Rangers episodes.  He always makes me laugh!

anonymous asked:

Hi. I'm a bit depressed and by a bit I mean a lot and my meds aren't working. I was wondering if you had any tips about getting out of bed easier, or being motivated for the day. Thank you.

Hey anon.

This is tough because everyone is different, and whilst a lot of people have depression is affects us in so many different ways. 

I set myself a goal. Sometimes its only small but its something. Like today was to get up and watch Marks video from last night, then this evening to watch Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. I know it sounds silly but I had to do those things, and in order to do that I had to get out of bed. 

Find one thing you love. You truly enjoy. Youtube, films, TV, drawing, singing, whatever it is and wake up for that. The rest will come.

Oosh out
Thank you for existing

anonymous asked:

Do you watch any other youtubers?

I recently pared down my subscription feed by a whole lot. There aren’t very many people that I watch every single day but my recs: 

- Presley Alexander - Brilliantly smart lgbtq eleven year old who does vlogs, science/education videos, is way into fandoms, discusses sexuality and current events with more clarity than most adults could dream of having, and has the best parents ever. She’s studying to take the GED test and taking college coding courses at the moment, so every video makes me feel a little more dumb but I love watching her grow. 
 
- Amy Lynn Thompson - Does lifestyle/homeware/makeup videos, but her personality is just so laid back and fun that I watch every single video no matter what. 

- Keira Rose - British vegan with sometimes very colorful hair. I started watching her regularly because she had pet rats, though she recent lost a lot of them (to natural causes) within a short period of time so I think she’s going to let the one she has now be her last. At this point I’m very fond of her personality so the rats aren’t the only draw. 

- Gone to the Snow Dogs/Snow Dogs Vlogs - A married couple with three huskies. The first channel features exclusively dog related videos, the second is their vlog channel (which obviously does also feature the dogs heavily, but also Jess and Jamie.)

New YouTube Video: “The Dark Side of Disney”! A lot of us love Disney, but what are some messages we miss when we watch them?? This was a lot of fun to make, and I hope you all enjoy!!
