OST Liara T'soni is an asari archaeologist, and one of Commander Shepard's closest allies. Ever since she was young she had a fascination with the protheans, the race that ruled the galaxy 50,000 years ago, and dedicated her life to studying them. While on a dig on a remote planet she was attacked by a machine race known as a geth she found herself trapped in a prothean forcefield trying to protect herself. She was finally rescued by Commander Shepard, from whom she learned her mother Matriarch Benezia has allied herself with the rogue spectre Saren Arterius. But more than that she learned that Shepard had encountered a Prothean beacon and learned the true fate of the protheans; they had been wiped out by a race of sentient starships known as the Reapers. Both for her own protection and to learn more about Shepard's experience with the beacon she joined his squad, and helped to bring down her mother as well as Saren who were attempting to bring the Reapers back. After Shepard's death at the hands of the Collectors Liara fought against the Shadow Broker (the galaxy's most powerful information broker) to recover Shepard's body, and then spent the next two years trying to track him down to rescue a friend who was captured in the process. With the help of a newly revived Shepard she managed to find and kill the Broker, and then took control of his network to become the new Shadow Broker. With her new resources she discovered plans for an ancient device to possibly destroy the Reapers, and as the Reapers returned rejoined Shepard's crew in order to try and stop them once and for all. Notes: A number of feats can be performed by any squadmate regardless of who they are. These feats will be marked with [Squadmate] and the gif is not guaranteed to have Liara in them.

[DISCUSSION] An essential (album) guide to Lo-fi Hip Hop.
One of the originators and perhaps the sole master of the sound which Lo-fi Hip Hop derives from and long before it was coined Lo-fi Hip Hop was RZA: musician and record producer respectively from the group from Wu-Tang Clan and the mastermind behind their 1993 debut album "Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)". The album became a blueprint for hardcore Hip Hop in the early 90s. It also served as an inspiration for Hip Hop instrumental albums and breakbeats, which implemented chopped samples of genres as jazz, soul and musical traditions from Asia.
In 1999 RZA went on and produced one of the first major Hip Hop instrumental albums for the movie: Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai.
While RZA was expanding his sound from NY across the world during the mid-90s, another contemporary namely J Dilla from the underground hip hop scene in Detroit started to gain attraction as a Hip Hop instrumentalist. J Dilla released several studio albums, compilations and dozen of posthumously released work, which makes it is difficult to single out a specific album among his discography that describes Lo-fi Hip Hop. However a single favorite of mine is the track "Nothing Like This" from the 2003 album: Ruff Draft.
Nujabes, was a Japanese record producer, DJ, composer and arranger who produced atmospheric instrumental albums, mixing conventional hip hop and jazz. Nujabes released three solo studio albums, including the 2003 debut album: Metaphorical Music which offers a combination of traditional soul and jazz samples.
Last but not least: the artist Clams Casino came on to the scene in 2011 with his self-released album simply named: "Instrumentals" as a free digital download. Clams Casinos music has been described as "[bringing] together conventional hip-hop drums, a sensitive ear for off-to-the-side melodies, and an overdose of oddly moving atmosphere, yet clearly within the breakbeat genre and the Lofi Hip Hop spectrum.
I'm making a comprehensive and tentative guide of every adult swim original available to stream. Here's what I have so far
LAST UPDATED Sep 13th, 2018 [Added some new 24/7 streams] There is a TON of full adult swim shows that are readily available to steam on their website or elsewhere, and it can be crazy trying to find it all. I've attempted to compile a comprehensive guide for every adult swim original that can or cannot be streamed. EDIT: So this was featured on adult swims front page, which was cool... until Turner came in and took down most of the youtube videos that weren't on adult swim's channel. It sucks because it was mostly the pilots that you can't find virtually anywhere. I've marked through any video thats been taken down.
These shows have nearly every episode on the site but are missing a few. I'll provide links to the missing episodes if available. Aqua Teen Hunger Force - Full seasons 1-9, partial seasons 10 and 11 which are available on Hulu Dream Corp LLC - Missing "You Down with OCD?" but this changes from time to time. There's usually at least 5 episodes. Available on Hulu. Mary Shelley's Frankenhole - Missing "Mother To Be-sa", an unaired banned episode. (Download)
I will be adding more to this list as I come across them April Fools' Prank 2010 - Cut of all the bumps in between The Room with Space Ghost interviewing Tommy Wiseau April Fool's Prank 2011 - The Room full block with Earth Ghost April Fools' Prank 2012 - The Return of Toonami full block (Bleach, Dragon Ball Z, Mobile Suit Gundam Wing, Tenchi Muyo! Ryo-Ohki, Outlaw Star, The Big O, Yu Yu Hakusho, Blue Submarine No. 6, Trigun, Astro Boy, and Gigantor) April Fools' Prank 2018 - Subbed Toonami (FLCL Alternative, Mind Game (full movie), JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders, Hunter x Hunter, Naruto: Shippuden, Space Dandy, Cowboy Bebop, Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex 2nd Gig, and Scavengers) Daylights Savings 2017 - Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film For Theaters aired in the extra hour for DST. Includes commercials and bonus episodes of King of the Hill, Rick and Morty, and Ben 10 Aqua Teen Hunger Force Banned Boston Episode - Unaired episode about their Boston bomb scare. Uncensored and unfinished! Clerks: The Animated Series - aired Friday nights on adult swim in 2008 High School USA! - Fox series made by Dino Stamatopoulos (Moral Orel, Frankenhole). I'm not sure if this aired on adult swim or not. Mission Hill - Classic old syndicated show. Individual episode playlist on internet archive or Youtube. The PJ's - Old Fox series by Eddie Murphy. Wonder Showzen - NOT an adult swim show but for anyone who is a fan of PFFR (Xavier, The Heart She Holler), this is an essential watch. Besides, adult swim wanted this show anyway. If you notice any broken or missing links, please let me know! Likewise, if you have any material that could go here, leave a suggestion (I've personally been specifically searching for full blocks of their 16th Anniversary weeks). Happy Streaming!
The second ever International Artist Feature is provided by MySweetMettbrot, about a German artist that has gotten a second chance after having failed the first time. Remember, that if you want to write up something about your favourite artist, it's up to you to do it! There was a lot of interest in the first thread, but not a lot of actual content sent my way. While I don't have a problem with this becoming Dutch Artist Feature if I have to write it all, I want to try to include as many different nations as possible which I can't do by myself, so please do write something! Enjoy! Hey hhh, The artist i want to tell you about today is Germany‘s very own Ahzumjot. Starting as one of the infamously labeled ‘New Rhyme-Generation‘ around a few artists that were projected to be the new wave of rap to break into the mainstream, Ahzumjot really missed his chance. While a few other rappers of this supposed new generation went on to eventually garner a lot of mainstream success (namely Cro, Olson or Rockstah), Ahzumjot missed his mark with a terribly received album he put out after he signed to Universal Music in 2014. The most obvious problem with his first major album ‘Nix Mehr Egal‘ that followed his 2011 debut project Monty – an incredibly promising, self-produced EP that kickstarted his hype and hopes for a great, successful future – was the logical consequence of the inexperienced ‘future star‘ picked up by a major label: It was incredibly commercial, constructed purely for mainstream success, to be played in stadiums and as cutaway songs in questionable afternoon tv-programming. This did not sit well with fans and critics alike. While a few songs went on to at least have some charting success as well as radio airplay the album was a flop and it seemed like his career was a one-and-done. Especially since after his album, there seemed to be a lot of problems regarding his standing in the music industry, labelwork and satisfaction with his success and music, personally even more so than labelwise. Now you might wonder why I want to tell you about this seemingly washed-up industry victim with a failed album. It‘s because that is the exact opposite of what he is today: One of the most interesting, independent german artists with continous output. While the album dropped 3 years after his first EP it only took him one year to leave his label and independently drop the ‘Minus‘-EP. A, once again, beautifully self-produced tape that showed a seemingly completely different side of Ahzumjot: Grimey, spacey, vibey, intrumental-wise clearly reminiscing of ‘cloudrap‘ as established by clams casino and way less accessible than his last album. The first track immediately introduces the listener to the (old) new Ahzumjot. Its name, ‘Tag Zwei‘ (Day Two) already tells you what he explicitely states later: It is a new beginning for Alan. It starts with him distancing himself from everything and everyone and showing his content about his situation as well as his will to do it right this time. You can already tell his new music will be way more personal than the stadium-pop of ‘Nix Mehr Egal‘. From this point onwards he went back to his roots and did everything he had to do autonomously: He produced his own instrumentals, mixed and mastered most of his music himself, published it and even sat himself down with a friend for days to package and send his pretty successful merchandise. Thanks to that the following two years were the busiest and at the same time most prolific years as Ahzumjot with 3 releases 2016 alone, split into 16QT01 to 16QT03 with the first one being an instrumental tape consisting of remixes, the second one an EP including the tracks of his ‘Minus‘-EP and the third a collab-EP with friend and rapper Lance Butters called ‘Die Welle‘ (The Wave). All of those were free to download, as all his music since ‘Nix Mehr Egal‘ has been. In 2017 he followed it up with his (to me) incredible album ‘Luft & Liebe‘ (Air & Love) and - spanning into 2018 - the experimental release ‘RAUM‘ (Room) which is a playlist he regularly updates with new songs. Basically what Drake‘s More Life should have been. All of this output is slowly but steadily recovering his reputation that seemed to be tarnished forever by continously showing his talent and ability to craft great songs from scratch while not succumbing to the common traps of the german music-industry, thanks to his experiences in it and his do-it-yourself-mindset. While at first it seemed like he was unrecoverably fed-up with the industry and German rap music (Die Welle basically was a 6 Track diss shooting against the german rap-scene), he is slowly beginning to loosen the reigns over his creative ‘Room‘ by collaborating more and not only with his ‘inner-circle‘ as well as not doing every little thing as packaging merch and shooting every video himself. As of right now, things are looking great. His WIP playlist-project is still going on and it doesn‘t seem like he has any intentions to stop going strong in 2018. His numbers may not seem too impressive yet, in a flourishing german rap scene that regularly seems to break records streaming-wise, but sonically he definitely is one of the most interesting acts around and while 2017 brought his biggest song yet (Gut in der Nacht) things are looking way up as he is again gaining more and more relevancy while staying completely independent. If this interested you enough to check out his music, the essential projects to peep are Luft & Liebe and the RAUM-playlist. Notable songs being Gut in der Nacht, Helene Fischer, Stunten, Training and my personal favorites Montag, Geh nicht, Mein Bruh and Koordinieren as well as KDDDV.
Vince Staples is up next with this week's best verse! Background: A member of the group Cutthroat Boyz, rapper Vince Staples surfaced in the early 2010s with a spate of promising appearances on Odd Future-related recordings -- including Earl Sweatshirt's "epaR," Mike G's "Moracular World" and Award Tour EP, the Jet Age of Tomorrow's "Lunchbox," and Domo Genesis' "Elimination Chamber" -- as well as the 2011 mixtape Shyne Goldchain. In 2012, the rapper released Winter in Prague, a mixtape issued as a free download with the production work handled entirely by Michael Uzowuru. A darker, more introspective mixtape, Stolen Youth, arrived in 2013 with a co-billing to Larry Fisherman (a Mac Miller alias) and verses from Ab-Soul, Schoolboy Q, Mac Miller (as Mac Miller), and Cutthroat Boyz partner Joey Fatts. Staples then performed as the opening act on Miller's Space Migration tour. Among Staples' assists in 2013 were verses on Earl Sweatshirt's Doris and Jhené Aiko's "The Vapors." The rapper continued his steady ascent in 2014 with a fourth mixtape, Shyne Goldchain, Vol. 2, and contributions to Common's Nobody's Smiling -- specifically on the key single "Kingdom," as well as on the deluxe edition bonus track "Out on Bond." His debut album, Summertime '06, landed in 2015 with production from Clams Casino and No ID. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vince_Staples_discography Past 20 Week Results: .....

Since my experimental post went over well a few weeks ago I figured I'd give a Instrumental one a shot. I'm just gonna post a mix of personal favorites, popular projects and some Must-listens, this isn't a one stop guide to the genre or anything like that. Feel free to list your favorite projects/producers in the comments. Now I'm not a writer, I'm not gonna write 3 paragraphs on the use of a horn sample in a track, I'm just gonna give maybe few words, interesting fact (if there's one to mention) and let the music speak for me. Here's a GrooveShark playlist with all the albums mentioned (spotify didn't have quite a few albums) What? don't like GrooveShark tho there's no doubt in it's superiority? Fine, here's what Spotify does have I'm gonna go from most popular to not so much but there isn't gonna be any sort of amazing underground acts here for those of you who are in the know. This is more for people who are just getting into this side of the genre. Now that the intro is over lets get to it. J Dilla - Donuts - 2006 - Soul: Released 3 days before his death and mostly made with a basic sampler and a small 45 rpm turntable while he was in a extended hospital stay (29 of the 31 tracks) 85 listed samples used Samples: Last Donut Of The Night Time: The Donut Of The Heart DJ Shadow - Endtroducing... - 1996 - Triphop/plunderphonics: Some considered it to be the first album made entirely from sampling (86 listed samples) and it was made using nothing but a sampler, tape recorder and a turntable. Samples: Midnight In A Perfect World Building Steam With A Grain of Salt MF DOOM - Special Herbs 0-9- 2001-2005 - Jazz: A collection of DOOM's work from behind the boards during his golden era. Gotta love when they can produce just as well as they can MC Samples: Styrax Arrow Root Madlib - Shades Of Blue - 2003 - Jazz: Madlib takes on the task of remixing the archives of the famed Blue Note Records. Less instrumental hip-hop then Jazz seen through a hip-hop lens Samples: Stepping Into Tomorrow Slim's Return Nujabes - Metaphorical Music - 2003 - Jazz: As a Japanesse native, Nujabes work is heavely influenced by traditional Japanesse music and eastern Jazz. He worked with various MCs from across the globe till his untimely death in 2010. Lots of vocal features but the beats are really the center of the album Samples: Lady Brown Horn In The Middle Flying Lotus - Cosmogramma - 2010 - alternative: The Title comes from a misheard ashram lecture where he mistook "Cosmic Drama" for the title. Now you know Samples: Zodiac Shit
RJD2 - Deadringer - 2002 - Triphop/electronica: RJD2's debut on Def Jux, around 50 samples Samples: Ghostwriter Smoke and Mirrors The Avalanches - Since I Left You - 2000 - Plunderphonics/disco: Not really a hip-hop album but if you appreciate the art of sampling then it's a must. Made up entirely from sampling,wiht over 3,500+ unique samples, it's a real achievement. Now if we can get that follow up some time this decade... Samples: Electricity Since I Left You Pete Rock - Petestrumentals - 2001 - traditional/Boom Bap: Made up of mostly unreleased beats from 1990-95 but polished up for the original release of the album. There's 2 versions of the album, the original had only 2 vocal features, the second edition released less then a year later replaced 3 of the instrumentals for versions with vocals. Samples: A Little Soul Play Dis Only At Night Kid Koala - Some Of My Best Friends Are DJ's - 2003 - Turntablism: Known most for being apart of the super group Deltron 3030 with Dan The Automater and Del, his solo projects feature his skill in the art of Turntablism. Turntablism is the art of scratching, beat mixing/matching, and beat juggling. The same way that Since I Left You isn't strictly hip-hop, learning to know the distinct aspects of a beat brings another level to enjoying hip-hop. Samples: More Dance Music Skanky Panky Oh No - Dr No's Oxperiment - 2007 - Trip-Hop: Oh No, Madlib's younger brother and fellow Stone Throw sign-y 3rd solo album shows him working with mostly Mediterranean and middle eastern samples. Roll up, break out your knee pillows and relax to the lovely sound of pan flutes and modulated sitars Samples: Heavy Gladius Apollo Brown - Clouds - 2011 - BoomBap/traditional: Probably my favorite instrumental album in recent years, that shoulf be enough of a "interesting fact" right? Samples: Bridge Through Time Tao Te Ching The Herbaliser - Blow Your Headphones - 1997 - Jazz: So um. lets see. - Checks Wikipedia - I guess they made the theme for ESPNs Sunday Night Football. That's cool I guess.Oh and the album good too. Samples: A Mother For Your Mind Mr. Chombee Has The Flaw Uyama Hiroto - A Son of The Sun - 2008 - Jazz/Downtempo: One of the protege of Nujabes his solo work takes the light hearted jazz/soul influences of his mentor and runs away with it into a blissfull mist of fond memories and liquid soul. Samples: One Dream Stratus Clams Casino - Instrumentals Tape 1 - 2011 - TripHop/FutureGarage: A halfed Clam garnished with bread crumbs and bacon bits, normally served as a appetizer in the North East. Download Link Samples: I'm God Realest Alive DJ Krush - Strictly Turntablized - 1994 - Triphop: Another Japanese native, and ex-yakuza member, this is the second album he dropped in 1994. Samples: Dig This Vibe To The Infinity Cut Chemist - Audience Listening - 2006 - Triphop/Turntablism: Frequent DJ Shadow collaborator and former member of the group Jurassic 5 this is his only offical studio album. Fun Fact, he played the role of hte chemistry teacher in the movie Juno Samples: The Garden Spoon Onra - Chinoiseries - 2002 - Soul/Jazz: French producer Onra produced this album during a trip to Vietnam using mostly obscure traditional music and asian jazz samples in a attempt to capture his vacation in song. Samples: I Wanna Go Back The Anthem Lil Ugly Mane - Three Sided Tape Vol 1 - 2013 - Chopped&Screwed/Trap: Lil Ugly Mane is a much better producer then he is a MC (tho I like him in that as well). This is probably his best project besides Mista Thug. the orginal had all the instrumentals into 3 tracks each representing a side, ill post a link to a version with the tracks split up (its a mixtape mods) Split version Download Samples: Bath Time Ethics Oddisee - Rock Creek Park - 2011 - Jazz/BoomBap/Soul: Label mate of Apollo Brown on Mellow Music Group (great boombap label). Dude has been putting out solid music for a long time both as a MC and Producer Samples: The Carter Barron Skipping Rocks Some albums I highly recommend listening to the instrumentals form the following albums, take away the vocals and they're still just as good: The Chronic/2001, Deltron 3030, Company Flow, 4 Eva N aDay, The Unseen, Madvilliany, and Dr Octagon. I put the instrumental versions in the playlists up top. Alright guys, that's all I have time for, there's plenty of projects that are worth looking into besides whats listed here even by the artists mentioned, please do yourself a favor and if you enjoyed any of this look into it some more. Feel free to share your favorites in the comments, just trying to promote this side of the genre so the more the merrier.
Looking for rappers to collaborate with on singles/projects/EPs/etc!
Hey again y'all, haha. I produce beats on the side and post them on SoundCloud. I really want anyone who thinks they are a competent rappesinger to lay something over them because I'm not really a rapper myself. I'm trying to work with people that vibe with my stuff and it's been working really well! Anyways, just for background, I'm inspired by a lot of Kanye West, Clams Casino, cloud rap, future bass, EDM-inspired type production. I'm not saying I'm a professional producer or beatmaker by any means, but I hope they're enough of a foundation for someone to lay dope shit over. I've got a decent catalog of beats on my SoundCloud (which I'll link below). Feel free to choose a different beat if you're interested. There are a lot and have different vibes and flavors so it's up to you. Most of the beats are downloadable in WAV format. To be honest, I'm really interested in getting vocals over all my beats, so please PM me if you're interested in a more involved collaboration. Links: SoundCloud. Some of my favorite beats: [BUMPZ]( Hey again y'all, haha. I produce beats on the side and post them on SoundCloud.

I'm not saying I'm a professional producer or beatmaker by any means, but I hope they're enough of a foundation for someone to lay dope shit over. I've got a decent catalog of beats on my SoundCloud (which I'll link below). Feel free to choose a different beat if you're interested. There are a lot and have different vibes and flavors so it's up to you. Most of the beats are downloadable in WAV format. To be honest, I'm really interested in getting vocals over all my beats, so please PM me if you're interested in a more involved collaboration. Links: SoundCloud. Some of my favorite beats - BUMPZ - Hard-hitting, bouncy, space-y, electronic trap vibes, aliens turning up and doing drugs in space type stuff. HLGNZ - Straight hooligan shit. Heavy bass, synth, piano. Tried to mix some ominous trap vibes with some thumping club vibes. N!T3Z - I recently got a new Maschine MK3 and this is the first beat I've made since the initial learning curve. Really lush, melodic spacey vibes. FACTZ - Bright, video game vibes. Went for a Super Mario Sunshine feel to experiment with making my own sounds. V!B3Z - Really chill, West Coast, highway cruising feel. DAY1Z - Groovy, synth-y beat with modern bass and drum rhythms, with a nice flow change near the 2 minute mark. YUGHZ - Relatively fast, aggressive beat a la YBN Nahmir, Playboi Carti. Feel free to PM me if you're interested in working together. I would greatly appreciate it!
So a little over six months ago I went and downloaded the trial of FL Studio. I watch some 'how to make a Clams Casino beat' tutorials and said okay I'm ready to go. Then I sat down at my computer and opened up my program threw some drums into the channel rack and started making patterns. Now of course it was complete and utter nonsense. Sounded kinda like a deaf persons take on 90's dance music. I stuck with it though. Almost drove my girlfriend insane in the process. Here I am though six months later and I have a steadily growing following on Soundcloud. I am at the point now where I can say my music is actually getting good. I don't think I'm an expert or anything. I know six months is nothing when it comes to producing. I'm not trying to be one of those people who does this for a couple months and think they know everything. My music is far from perfect but as long as I keep improving that is all I care about. There is still a shit load of things I don't know how to do. But I plan to never stop trying to learn and trying to better my music. Anyway I just wanted to share some things I've learned with those that are new to making beats. Some of these probably applies to rapping as well. 1) Read, watch and study. I've read articles, watched tons of Youtube tutorials and listened to other peoples beats constantly since I started producing. Absorb as much info as you can. Everything from sampling, synth making, drums, music theory and mixing. There is so much free information that there is no excuse for not learning. 2) Listen to a lot of music. Obviously listen to a lot of hip hop and hip hop instrumentals but listen to other genres as well. I've incorporated ideas from hardcore and metal into my music. So really all genres will help you. 3) Listen to your own music. When I'm at home doing the dishes or working out at the gym I always have my headphones in. A lot of that time I'm just listening to past songs of mine. I hear parts I think really worked well or parts that didn't come out exactly as I wanted to. That way I can have a better idea what I should do next time. 4) Don't put out your songs too early. I used to just put out songs right away. Now I make two or three versions of the song and have people in the Daily Feedback thread listen it or my friends on Soundcloud. Other people may hear things you don't or think of things to add that you didn't. It can really help you improve the quality of your songs. 5) Learn about an experiment with automation. Messing with automation clips for volume, panning, cutoff, effects etc will make your beats sound a lot more interesting. Some nice fade ins or cutoff transitions can really go a long way. 6) When starting a new beat always try and get one aspect of it where you want it to before you go on. What I mean by that is less say you wanna make a beat with real nice melody, focus on getting your melody how you want it first. Then go on and center the rest of the track around that melody. Or if you know want a certain style of drums in your song then focus on that first. Everything else will start falling in place better then. 7) This is the most important piece of advice I can give. Set realistic goals and expectations for yourself. You music will sound like shit at first. Then after working at if for a while it will sound less like shit. It still won't sound anywhere close to your favorite producer. It honestly may never sound as good as their shit. But that's okay. Just keep trying to improve. Take pleasure in small victories. Think of it like weight lifting or running. If you wanna deadlift 600 pounds or run a 10k you're gonna have to train for a long time to do so. But you can be happy every time you can lift a little more or run a little faster. Same with music. Try and make every track have at least one element that's better than last. And be fucking proud of it. Cause you know what you made that shit. You're making music, you're creating, you're taking your ideas and making them come alive and that's fucking awesome. So yeah there is a lot more I could say here but I didn't want to make this too long. Just remember if making music is something you love to do then never stop.
Here are 10 mixes you may enjoy - all can be streamed on Mixcloud or downloaded via Mediafire. The most recent two at the top are electronica but all the rest are D&B. It's mostly deep / expansive / synth heavy / ambient but they are still quite varied in terms of track selection. Hope you like! https://louisfawbert.tumblr.com/mixes Post-Truth:

The Toonami: Pre-Flight Discussion Thread for June 9, 2017
Jason sure does look different this week! Oh wait, that's Dennis substituting for Jason on this week's Pre-Flight. But that's okay this time around since we're having as much fun as usual reviewing the Tale of Princess Kaguya, talking about our favorite fairy tales, and enjoying a plethora of sneak peeks! Pre-Flight archive link: Pre-Flight episode stream link: Toonami stream Toonami Pre-Flightepisode 120: the song that never ends presented by Gill Austin and Dennis! Summary: Movie of the Week: The Tale of Princess Kaguya - background: Miyatsuko's life changes when he discovers a miniature girl with mysterious origins inside a glowing bamboo shoot - 65 out of 100 on Jason's top 100 anime list - released on November 23, 2013 - took Isao Takahata 5+ years to produce and release - releasing the film was a laborious process because Takahata wanted to create the story by animating over water color, rather than using cel shading - some parts of the film may be rough and not so clean, but the film looks gorgeous with its use of an unconventional style - the blu ray contains an interesting two-part documentary that discusses how this movie was made, check it out of you want to learn how you too can suffer for your art Question of the Week: What's your favorite fairy tale movie? - Gill: Stardust, Edward Scissorhands, and Ladyhawke - Dennis: The Neverending Story, Pan's Labyrinth, and The Princess Bride - Adult Swim FB: Willow, Maleficient, Dark Crystal, Labyrinth, and The Princess Bride - Toonami FB: The Black Cauldron, Princess Bride, The Neverending Story, Legend, and Spirited Away Sneak Peek: Spoiler - Spoiler Sneak Peek 2: Spoiler - Spoiler Sneak Peek 3: Spoiler - Spoiler Sneak Peek 4: Spoiler - Spoiler One Man's Trash: Gill plays Prey - who needs crew mates when you get rid of them all for an achievement?

Adult Swim Singles - time to get back on the wild ride with 52 week of free music - a new song will drop every Wednesday, be ready to download! - next up is "Time Stops when I'm with U", by Miha and "Kali Tugs", by Ghostemane X Clams Casino An unexpected co-host appearance was a nice surprise, thanks for standing in for Jason! Until next Pre-Flight, enjoy the Gundam Unicorn finale (this time for real) and get excited for the premiere of Lupin the Third part 4!.
[REQUEST] Just dropped a compilation of 15 beats I produced. Looking for rappers to collaborate and catch vibes with on singles/EPs/projects/etc who vibe with my style.
Hey y'all, haha. I produce beats on the side and post them on SoundCloud. I really want anyone who thinks they are a competent rappesinger to lay something over them because I'm not really a rapper myself. I'm trying to work with people that vibe with my stuff and it's been working really well! Anyways, just for background, I'm inspired by a lot of Kanye West, Clams Casino, cloud rap, future bass, EDM-inspired type production. I'm not saying I'm a professional producer or beatmaker by any means, but I hope they're enough of a foundation for someone to lay dope shit over. I've got a decent catalog of beats on my SoundCloud, which I've organized into a makeshift album/beat tape here. Feel free to choose a different beat if you're interested. There are a lot and have different vibes and flavors so it's up to you. Most of the beats are downloadable in WAV format. To be honest, I'm really interested in getting vocals over all my beats, so please PM me if you're interested in a more involved collaboration! Links: SoundCloud.
