We Didn't Come Here To Rock | AJJ Cover

This is my VERY punk version of We Didn't Come Here To Rock by Andrew Jackson Jihad. Technically it's an "AJJ cover" and not an "Andrew Jackson Jihad cover" since they changed their name, but I just found out about that today and I'm not ready for that change! Recorded this with my electric guitar (first guitar video ever!) and broken microphone vocals. Well I considered the microphone broken but then it got A LOT MORE BROKEN as you'll see at the end of the video.

I mention my band Total Misär - you can watch our live cover of American Girl by Tom Petty, and there's also my Westworld song that someone said sounded like AJJ. On the video page there are lyrics and chords for this song.

Hidden In The Sand | Tally Hall Cover

I recorded a ukulele and xylophone cover of Tally Hall's Hidden In The Sand, off their album Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum, which I used to listen to a lot. The song shuffled into my ears as I was walking the sand and ice, and I hurried home to record it, trying to beat the setting sun. The chords are available below! Consider subscribing over on YouTube if you enjoy this and want more like it!

TALLY HALL IS SUCH A GREAT BAND/INFLUENCE

Tally Hall is a band I listened to ages ago - I made fan art for them, I recommended their web comedy show to anyone who would listen, and I even re-made their music video Good Day, putting my face in all the screens instead of theirs, so it's safe to say they were an influence on me, but I never did a cover until right now!

HIDDEN IN THE SAND UKULELE CHORDS

My ukulele is tuned in D, which makes it sound a bit different than the original, but I decided to just go with it! The chords I use are the same as in the original version (I think) but they sound a bit lower. The Xylophone bits I just kinda made up as I went, you can see how I play it in the video. Here are the lyrics and chords: Hidden In The Sand ukulele chords: E6 Eb6 E6 - E6 Eb6 E6 - A Am -E6 Eb6 E6

Instagram DIY Photo Album

My mother's birthday gift this year was a tiny Instagram DIY photo album I created by printing her instagram photos from 2012 to 2016. See instructions below! Follow my mother on Instagram if you want and me while you're at it but she is much more active so if you want more of ME you better subscribe to my YouTube! ;-)

HOW TO DOWNLOAD INSTAGRAM PICTURES

I didn't go into a lot of detail in the video so here below are some instructions. Please ask questions if anything is unclear!

I downloaded the photos using an addon called DInstagram. Honestly I don't know why they make it so hard to download photos, it would have saved me a lot of time if I could just get ALL of them in one go and go through them on my computer. Those tiny notebooks had a lot of pages so I printed a lot of pictures. A lot of the pictures weren't too high quality but luckily that didn't matter since I was printing them so small (and on such a crummy printer).

PRINTING AND GLUING A MINI PHOTO ALBUM

Had to use Adobe Bridge to generate a PDF where they were the right size, which was 3.4 x 3.4 cm. Then I simply cut them up and glued them in. When I was done I put a pile of history books on top of it to make sure the pages didn't get all wrinkly, but this was probably a bad move since it contributed to the colours bleeding together. If you attempt this, leave the book open instead and let it dry out properly - as you see in the video I have some problems with the pages sticking together too. I'm really terrible at this haha!

VIDEO INFORMATION

The song in this video is "Before I Sleep" by Maciojad.

This video was shot with a Panasonic GH4 and a 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 lens.

PS: She liked it! :-)

I've Got A Westworld Theory

This ukulele song is about Westworld theories! Reddit has theories on Arnold, Bernard, Dolores, William, The Man in Black... It was too much! This song is my allergic reaction! I first played it on the Westworld episode 6 discussion on my TV podcast Shows What You Know, but the lyrics are all speculation and NO SPOILERS. This video is getting some love over on reddit, so this is probably a great time to subscribe to my youtube channel so you can say you did it before it was cool.

Wow I just realized I haven't promoted Shows What You Know at all here on the site, just on the Facebook group, Twitter, etc. Yeah I'm doing a TV podcast, in case you didn't know, and there's a LOT of episodes about Westworld. Also my other podcast Hello There is not showing up on the start page either at the moment, but there are new episodes on Fridays over at awesomepedia.org/podcast!

One Word Titles 3

Here is the new One Word Titles video, where we guess/hilariously improvise what TV shows are about based only on their titles. This time we tackle Benders, Colony, Tripped and Rosewood! We shot this 6 months ago but I didn't finish editing it until the other day when I realized our hilarious Butterfly Trump joke might (hopefully) be totally irrelevant in a couple of days. Subscribe to the youtube if you want.

Fanfiction Reading: Alan Rickman/Legolas

For this video I've taken the audio from episode four of Library 34 and set it to the text of the fanfiction story that I am reading, which is called "The Ballroom at the Edge of the Universe." It is a short but brilliant fic that boggled my mind by being not Snape/Legolas or Alan Rickman/Orlando Bloom - instead it takes the path less travelled by having Alan Rickman (the actor) meet and screw Legolas (the elf).

Story summary: "There is a strange and shimmering ballroom in some space/time void...it allows for all manner of unusual introductions...say Legolas and Alan Rickman (who has his own space time issues like he was born in the Victorian era and may return to his own planet)...but we digress. of couse he finds Legolas stunning and the feeling is retruned as they dance try to puzzle things out ponder wizards and they sneek of to sometining not intirely quite unlike the Room of Requirement..but some things remain consealed."
