One Direction Shredded

by on Jan.23, 2014, under Music

No pop star is safe from criticism — or a good YouTube “shred.”

Artists from Creed to The Who have fallen victim to the shred, a technique that dubs over cringeworthy audio on live performance videos. One Direction’s loyal fan base probably won’t appreciate the latest one, though. YouTube user SamRick recut the boy band’s American Music Awards performance of “Story of My Life” with audio that sounds more like bad karaoke.

The Hot Version of Wrecking Ball

by on Jan.06, 2014, under Music

I always said that Miley Cyrus’s Wrecking Ball would be a good song if the female version of Justin Bieber wasn’t prancing around naked in the video. Well, my New Year’s wish came true:

Also, take a look at Steve Kardynal’s Chatroulette Version of Wrecking Ball

An Interpretive Dance For My Boss Set To Kanye West’s Gone

Marina: I work for an awesome company that makes news videos. I have put my life into this job, but my boss says quantity, speed and views are what is most important. I believe it’s more important to focus on the quality of the content. When you learn to improve this, the views will come. Here is a little video I made explaining my feelings.

Chatroulette

by on Apr.19, 2013, under Music

The internet was not constructed for you, Robbie Williams.

But as long as you’re here, please keep posting your ridiculousness.

This is a music video he made to promote his song LOSERS, shows him trying to engage users of the infamous wheel-of-filth, ChatRoulette. AND YES, if you wait till the end, you’ll get a payoff.

Jesus is my N****

by on Feb.18, 2013, under Music

Lyrics as Follows:
(to be incorporated into your nightly bedtime prayers)

Well I wrote this song for the Christian youth,
I want to teach kids the Christian truth,
if you want to reach those kids on the street,
then you gotta do a rap to a hip-hop beat,

so I gave my sermon an urban kick,
my rhymes are fly, my beats are sick,
my crew is big and it keeps gettin’ bigga,
that’s cuz Jesus Christ is my nigga.

He’s a life changer; Miracle arranger
Born to the virgin mom in a manger
Water to wine, he’s a drink exchanger
And he died for your sin

I preach the word, that’s my gig
And I rhyme better than Notorious B.I.G.
All the other MCs, I wish them well
But if you live in sin, you burn in hell

Now I’ma pass the mic to my lovely wife
She’s a fly MC and the light of my life
So to bust a rhyme without further ado
Take it away Mary-Sue

Jesus Christ is my nigga
He’s the son of the original G
And he was sent to earth to elucidate the way that we should be

(What)

Like………… if another MC says you’re a freak
You’re a lame-butt rapper and your rhymes are weak
I don’t get mad and I don’t critique
I forgive him, and turn the other cheek (::spank::)

I don’t blaspheme and I don’t brag
I don’t cuss and my pants don’t sag
I do exude a little christian swag
And I’m proud to be an American

Jesus Christ is my nigga
Let his light shine through ya
Let his love pop a cap in your butt and say hallelujah!
Jesus Christ is my nigga
He’s a homie MC – JC you see?
He’s an honest, caring, peace-loving nigga like me

If you do drugs and you think you’re cool
You need to come to Sunday school
Put those drugs in a garbage can
Stand up tall, you’re a christian man

(Word up, I’m freestyling – Hit me)
