This is not the most unwanted song in the world, no, this is just a tribute...  
Lots of links today.

*The first one is a post on literary agent Nathan Bransford's blog where he invites would-be authors to play fantasy basketball with him this March. Score the highest in his league with your predictions and win either a query letter evaluation or a book from one of his clients.

I've made my picks... I've practiced basketball twice and never watched it, not even on TV. I don't think it's shown on TV in any of the countries I've lived and I wouldn't even have known it was basketball if Nathan hadn't said. But there you go. I've entered anyway.

*Fanart of Sebastian (Kuroshitsuji) linked to by sharona1x2.

*Weiss Kreuz caps by indelicateink.

*Man writes his resignation letter on a cake. Mostly I'm just looking at his outfit though. Love the shirt/waistcoat combination.

*The most unwanted song, scientifically composed. I stopped it about two minutes in, mostly because I have a very short attention span. How did you do?

How long did you last against the linked song?

I never pressed 'play'.

Couldn't take the cowboy horse-hoof sounds any more.

I got as far as the singing. I don't know if that's further or not, but I'm not going to check! :)

Are you going to the Tokyo Anime Fair tomorrow?

I have other plans tomorrow, and in factI had not heard of the event until you mentioned it. XD;;
Williamgenkischuldich on 19th March 2009 10:59 (UTC)
It's also on Saturday, if you haven't plans then?

I have to admit, I bought the CD when it first came out in the late 90s (an art center not too far away was selling copies) and listened to it while I puttered around the house. I thought the whole project was hilarious (and yes, the song sucked).
Williamgenkischuldich on 19th March 2009 10:09 (UTC)
It sounds like the kind of CD I'd buy to put in my collection rather than ever listen to. :)

Well... it's true I haven't listened to it since, LOL.

I first heard about it on a US public radio show, This American Life, which talked about the project - and the composers in general - for about ten minutes. From what I remember thinking, the song (and their work) indirectly slams quantifying *everything* in life... and it's just funny.

Just after 9 minutes the novelty started to wear off and I got bored. I’ve got to agree with at least one of the comments that after a while it just becomes a pointless exercise.
Williamgenkischuldich on 19th March 2009 10:10 (UTC)
I agree. As for mixing musical styles (modern), Girl Talk did it better.

I love the ones of Crawford in action, personally. :)
thewaywardrose on 18th March 2009 12:34 (UTC)
The only reason I stopped was because I had other things to do.
Williamgenkischuldich on 19th March 2009 10:17 (UTC)
Yeah, same.
susperia1: sakurai3susperia1 on 18th March 2009 14:08 (UTC)

Williamgenkischuldich on 19th March 2009 10:18 (UTC)
The singing three minutes in? That about the time I quit too.
aionwathaaionwatha on 18th March 2009 18:51 (UTC)
Had to stop at the christmas time because I absolutely hate christmas songs.

Naked My Little Pony Weiss.... *is still laughing*
Williamgenkischuldich on 19th March 2009 10:18 (UTC)
They had Christmas songs in there too? Wow, they thought of everything.

But you almost made it to the end! So close!

Yeah, I wouldn't really describe it as "composed".
ningengirai on 19th March 2009 03:10 (UTC)
I listened to all of it.

I'm now tempted to

[x] commit suicide
[x] commit composercide
[x] commit genocide
[x] never click on any link in your LJ, EVER AGAIN

:P
Williamgenkischuldich on 19th March 2009 10:29 (UTC)
I warn for any and all unsuitable links. Can't say fairer than that! :)

I gave up on the song pretty early, mainly because I don't like harmonica music.

The guy who did his resignation letter on the cake was brilliant. ^_____^
Williamgenkischuldich on 19th March 2009 10:30 (UTC)
I just want cake guy's outfit.:P
Jesshideincarnate on 19th March 2009 21:56 (UTC)
I got distracted like you so I didn't hear much of it. But it amuses me greatly, since each aspect, is good in certain songs, but not necessarily together hahahaha.
Williamgenkischuldich on 21st March 2009 08:31 (UTC)
I don't know... they seem more like samples linked together, with at least one likely to annoy you.
