Rhythm Game Song of the Week - ヒゲドライバー join. SELEN - 打打打打打打打打打打

We-we-we-we-we-we-we-we-we-welcome to another Rhythm Game Song of the Week! This week, it’s time to turn your legs into jackhammers.

Dadadadadadadadadada, that’s 10 “da”s, first appeared in Reflec Beat groovin’. It was made by Hige Driver, a Japanese musician known for his work in anime and video games. One may have heard of Maware! Setsugetsuka, the ending theme song of Unbreakable Machine Doll. That song was also featured in several Bemani games, including DDR, where, true to its name, has a very spinny (maware) chart. Unlike that song, this song is a Konami Original.

The song is a little similar to Maware, with it’s Japanese traditional sound, it’s fast pace, and its use of repetition in its lyrics. One part of the song is a one syllable kanji repeated really fast, the titular “Dadadadadadadadadada”, representing a “mad rhythm” that “beats out to the heart and body”. The repetition also happens in its Special chart, which has jackhammer-like sections to that part.

The song was crossed over into several other Bemani titles, such as beatmania IIDX 22 PENDUAL, pop’n music Lapistoria, Beatstream AnimTribe, which gave it its music video, and DDR A. Most recently, DDR A just gave the song a rather notorious Challenge chart, which can be seen in the video. Much like its Reflec Beat chart, there’s a section full of jackhammers, the kind of thing that’s far easier on ten fingers than two feet.

REFLEC BEAT groovin'!! - DADADADADADA xDD

Im not even going to score this one.
We both know what you did and why you did this.

I gotta do it now


Edit: Real score is a 7.
Its a good beat and i’ll always listen in full but I heard the nana version first and this will always pale in comparison.

Nothing beats Nana.

anonymous asked:

Pally parent memory time!

“It happened that a dog had got a piece of meat and was carrying it home in his mouth to eat it in peace. Now on his way home he had to cross a plink - a plank lying across a running brook. As he crossed, he looked down and saw his own shadow reflec- mrr, ref-reflected, in the water beneath. Think-thinking it was another dog with another piece of meat, he made up his mind to have that also. So he made a snap at the shadow in the water, but as he opened his mouth the piece of meat fell out, dropped into the water and was never seen more.”

Pallaxas looked up from the tattered book and searched his sire’s eyes, hoping for some sign of approval. The pup burgeoned on the edge of adolescence and stood only a foot shorter than his father. He had spent years learning to read and speak the human tongue - which he learned was only one of many called “English”. It was a foul language full of twists and turns, ambiguous wording and confusing meanings needing a legion of contextual explanation to reach any hope of comprehension. That his sire chose this for him to learn made him feel as if he were being tested.

<And what does the last sentence say?> His sire asked.

“Be-beware lest you lose the s-sub, stance - s-substance by grasping at the shadow,” Pallaxas concluded.

<Your sire wishes you to explain this story,> the vandal said.

<It… it is a story about an Earth dog who owns sustenance, food. It is walking to its home and it saw its reflection in some water. It saw the meat in the reflection and wanted that too. It wanted two pieces of meat and not one, so it opened its mouth to steal the meat. But when it opened its mouth, it dropped its food into the water, which sank away.>

<What do you think this story means?> His sire asked.

<It means that Earth dogs are stupid creatures that do not understand that reflections are not real, and if they lose food, they will not retrieve it,> Pallaxas said, <An Eliksni would enter water to retrieve lost ether. They must not know how to swim.>

<I suppose that’s the literal meaning, but the last line said what?> His sire asked.

<Beware lest you lose the substance by grasping at shadow. It means… if you covet meaningless things, you will lose what you have?> He asked.

<Close. It is a human moral lesson about greed using an animal character and the meat as a symbol for a human and its resources. If a human desires and tries to take another’s belongings, that human will itself lose what it values,> His sire said. <What does that mean to you?>

Pallaxas frowned. <It means humans are stupid. It is natural to amass resources by any means necessary, and the more resources one has, the greater one’s chances are of survival. This story seems to teach that such a thing is wrong. Pallaxas does not understand why humans would think that is wrong, because that is how our people survive. Resources are scarce, so when one finds them, one takes them. It is why our Captains, Archon and Kell are the biggest and strongest. Our strongest and smartest empower our House.>

<From what you have read in this story, what do you know about humans?> His sire asked.

<Humans are… weak,> Pallaxas said. <Some of them take by force if necessary, but not all of them do. They are not unified in their bid for survival, which makes them weak. It is why they have only one City, while our people have multiple ketches and a fleet. This story teaches that it is wrong to want more resources, but that is how our people survive!>

<And it is that weakness which gives us the advantage against them,> his sire said. The man unsheathed his shock dagger and gazed at its razor-sharp edge. Pallaxas could smell a faint trace of ozone wafting up from the oft-used weapon. <The House of Devils frequently raid human settlements and succeed because the humans are weak,> his sire continued. <They are easy to kill and easier to take as slaves. Our House won’t waste resources on slaves. Instead, the Devils do all of the raiding and working for us. Their foolishness is also a weakness, one that we can exploit because we are better.>

<Then what use does Pallaxas have for this book? If all of the stories in here are about insipid lessons of weakness, then it’s worthless,> the boy growled.

His sire raised a hand. <No. Keep the book, read it, and learn its lessons.>

<Why? I don’t want to become weak and stupid like a human!> The boy protested.

<The book is filled with stories that show how humans think. And if you understand how humans think, then you can manipulate that in your favor, yes?> His sire asked.

Pallaxas grew silent and stared at his father for a time as he digested this information. A simple text, so old it was falling apart, had become an object of his derision - yet in a moment’s notice, it became a whole new dimension of understanding.

<The humans have a saying that mirrors our many lessons: knowledge is power,> his sire said. <That is one of the foundational tenets of our House of Kings. Though the humans are inferior they have some philosophies that are true. That book will give you only a taste of how the humans think, but it is a good start as any other.>

The boy closed the book and rubbed its worn, canvas cover like he had so many years ago, when he was a mere runt waiting for scraps of ether. He studied the title that was once indecipherable and pondered the little book of human fables for a time.

<Sire, who is… how do you pronounce this word? It says “Aesop”. What does that word mean?>
