Status- OK, I've Been Doing Jack Shit Since SSX 3 is on Backward Compatible

LET'S GET IT OUT OF THE WAY RIGHT NOW:
JAM OF THE WEEK: "Hypersonic" by Jane's Addiction


This song has missed Jam Of The Week for this long? HOW? At first, "Hypersonic" sounds like an anomoly in Jane's Addiction's catalog, since it has a lot more "Dancey" elements to it, and heavily features synths, but it does fit in with the manic energy of "Stop!" and the spaciness of "Mountain Song". "Hypersonic" combines the two in a way that just works so well.

SSX 3 is really good with using it's soundtrack, unafraid to chop up a song and mess around with it. Most notably, the song will fade out to the drum and bass parts of the song, phasing ever so slightly, only to come back in full force when you land an impressive trick. The song will also go to the bridge or a quieter part of the song when you enter a tunnel, bursting back into the last chorus before the song ends. It all flows together in to create a dynamic experience with minimal "clunk".

DINO HUNTER MD: STREAMABRATION!
Dino Hunter MD is an internet series I did with some friends of mine from my Alma Mater, Stony Brook University. It's about an anesthesiologist that fights dinosaurs. It's really dumb, and I got my start there in acting and music.

This Saturday, at 8 PM EST, I'm going to stream the entire series, play some of the songs, and you all can join me on Discord and riff on it through the magic of Twitch!

FRIDAY NIGHT MYSTERIES PRESENTS: DANGANRONPA EPISODE 9


Sakura really is the best girl.

Also, Monokuma's "PUHUHU KILL EACH OTHER! PUHUHU!" schtick wearing more and more thin as the students gain more and more resolve is one of the high points of the game. Like he's all set to be this dictatorial badass and all the students are going like "Fuck off, nerd!"

I'm on the VERGE of figuring out what's going on here, and all of my theories have been flipped around or debunked.

Except for one.

Monokuma represents capitalism.

He's dismantled after the students resolve to not play his game, representing the working class abandoning the "game" and seek to escape its clutches. There's an article that actually shares a lot of the sentiment that I do. (WARNING: SPOILERS!)
