The Soak of the Year

When you look annoyed all the time people think you're busy.

Iron Mike

With everything else that’s surrounded his career (read: batshit crazy Holyfield ear-biting moment, rape conviction, etc.), most 20-somethings are probably unaware of how dominating Mike Tyson was during his prime.   I had no idea until I watched the following:

Good choice of music, too.   Appropriate title and an awesome song  (Rob D’s “Clubbed to Death” off The Matrix soundtrack).

Legalize it

No, not weed.  Heroin!  And prostitution!

Epileptic Awesome

I love musical visualizations.  You know, those computer-generated animations where you can actually see the music?
Without going all Pink Floyd on you, it’s rare to find choreographed videos that sync up perfectly with the music behind them.  Automatic visualizers are a dime a dozen (iTunes, Windows Media Player, Winamp, etc.), but great, spot-on videos are still hard to come by.
Don’t get me wrong, automatic visualizers are still pretty cool with the right settings, but the animations below make them seem cheap in comparison.

So, put on some headphones, turn it up and enjoy!

MUTEMATH – Reset

Autechre – Gantz Graf

Venetian Snares – Szamár Madár

The Firmament: Constellation (Ion The Prize)
This final one is awesomely nerdy.  Not really abstract, but it’s too funny to pass up.  I saw some Animusic stuff at a hotel while staying in Vegas, and it blew me away.
Animusic – Starship Groove

Still here?  Do you want to see people do this sort of thing instead of inanimate objects and oscilloscopes?  Check these guys and gals out.
