Cyberdevil's Back! Again. 2016.

I woke up feeling a bit shitty today. My head dull and heavy, but at the end of the day the ache is all gone, and albeit probably helped by a dose of the always reliable magnesium supplements, I feel like my good mood probably chased it away. On what occasion wouldn't the rowdiest of headaches phase me!? The day after that time when a month-long collaborative effort between me and Jabun is finally out! YEAH. :D

It's on NG, SC and YT so far, and will probably be added here as well before the weekend. Check it out through one of the above if you haven't already - and do leave a comment if any impressions come to mind! It's a different kind of jive this time, so it'd be interesting to hear your thoughts if you have any. The responses on NG so far have been entirely positive, but not particularly wordy.

Though I wrote the verse on impulse in the middle of a sauna session this summer (I took a break - notepads don't fare too well in the sauna), it took a while before I polished it up and put it to voice, and a while before I sent it to Nick, and a comparatively very short while after that before he had a beat ready to work with! It's all shaped after the verse - which is both unorthodox and a bit off-beat, so kudos to him on managing to make it all flow together. A little bit of nit-picking here and there, ad-libs, opting for optimal loudness leveld later: it's out! It's done!

And that's why today's been awesome.

Well, that's about it. Have a listen if you like and speak your mind! I'll be back with a couple of smaller projects this weekend. See you then.

UPD: It's up here too! Here.

Washing-Up Liquid

Let it sink in...
Like washing-up liquid.

Lev Idag Som Om Imorgon...

Lev idag som om imorgon vore sista dagen - ta hand om dig idag, så kan du leva fullt ut imorgon. Och imorgon. Och imorgon.

Live today like tomorrow was your last day - take care of yourself today, so you can live life to the fullest tomorrow. And tomorrow. And tomorrow.


I've got a mind of my own,
I turn your kind into stone,
I wave these signs with my bones,
I'll go through time and eons,
I feel the night is my home,
I chase the light as I grow,
I know the world is a throne,
And I will take it for sure.

Kong? You're wrong, I am King.

X-Men 6 - The Wolverine (2013)

X-Men 6 - The Wolverine (2013)

It's the story of Wolverine again - though this time with a niche. A thin slice of a the life he lived, and the path we walked - somewhere amidst the rest of it. It's heavy with Asian culture, and honor, and though Logan himself is still himself, it's like the scenario changes him, and for a while molds a part of him into a true warrior - just like the cover glimpse. A claw in one hand, and a sword in the other. Wild, but civilized. Wolverine: Reborn.

Not that he wasn't a warrior before, but, you know.

The movie tells the tale a life he once saved, that may bring about the destruction of his own. The story's good, poetic and true. The intrigue's good too, it twists and turns. The clues come and go. The villains are on his tail. There's a girl - but she's not scared of this monster. He's the story she heard as a child. Her protector. They get along well.

There are a few interesting mutants too, but for the most part Wolverine is the stranger, in a land he's unfamiliar with, with people he doesn't know, in a Japan which one moment seems futuristic and civilized, and in the next doesn't seem to have moved on at all since the times of old, and the Ninja still roam the mountainside.

The movie mixes together both new and old in a both nice and tragic way - the bear on the snowy hillside one of the more somber, spontaneous, yet powerful moments.

Overall it has a much more serious tone compared to the former, and feels very different from the other X-Men movies, not just because it focuses on Wolverine... but maybe because it's personal? It's down to Earth in a way the others never really managed to be. They always set the world ablaze with their own power - whereas this one sets the world ablaze with bombs, and The Wolverine faces the blast head first. It's a promising reinterpretation of Wolverine's character, though the final battle disappoints a bit. It goes as expected.

Among the rooster of new talent you'll notice a lot of Asians, like Tao Okamoto, Hiroyuki Sanada, Hal Yamanouchi, Rila Fukushima, Brian Tee and Will Yun Lee. I've seen them around, but probably not all in the same movie before. It's a great cast, and they all help bring Wolverine into a past that, albeit without the clutter and interferences of the former, is still as savage as ever. He goes to Japan to face the demons of his past... both figuratively, and for real. Because he is: The Wolverine.
