Sorban Palid, a very, very old traditional Sundanese-language folk song from West Java, Indonesia
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=q_gc1h5N4cQ
This version was released in 1988 by Nining Meida.

Una cancioncita del Día de los Muertos con un ritmo bien cadencioso {¡!}
A little ditty about Day of the Dead with a really earwormy beat:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_iySbJzFJpI
Spoiler:
I had the Youtube automatic subtitles on for the students to do a word-listen&search activity. The verses come out fine, but the chorus (!?!?!?) Wow! Never had "chumalaca chumalaca chumalà" come out soooooo wrong for so many.
If you know some Spanish, you're in for a good laugh at what Youtube's AI thinks is the song's lyrics.

Algunos filmes breves del Día de los Muertos para divertir:

I guess I've been listening to a lot of vocaloid music (again). Two songs recently that I've discovered:

Kimagure Mercy ft. Hatsune Miku :yout:

A Ngad’a folk song. Interesting to see they mark the implosives as bh, dh, gh, jh, etc.

Currently listening to Elyose's new album Reconnexion, and seems to be heavier than their previous album. More on the gothic metal side of things, where Ipso Facto seemed more gothic rock / industrial.
You can tell the same lie a thousand times,
But it never gets any more true,
So close your eyes once more and once more believe
That they all still believe in you.

Fujiya & Miyagi - Cassette Single

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M_yT4gDqog8

Absolût [<3] this song b/c:

1) Simple and driving rhythm [+1] = good cruising tunage
2) Reminds me of music I would whip up with my old Casio + Yamaha keyboards + my old TEAC 4 track, splitting each track in 2 to get a fatter, quasi-8 track feel [B)]
3) Those whack, old-fashioned sounding keyboard patches, like from early Cars (1978-1980)
4) Sounds like it might be a really cool version of the pre-recorded sample song included ye aulde Casio/Yamaha/Korg keyboards of yore.
5) The dadouk is a nice touch I might've chose L1nn drum-machine, but shows where my mind was/is :roll:
6) I would record most of my shite before the digital PC revolution on jankie cassettes like the one in the thumbnail

** sigh ** [:P]

Koes Bersaudara ‘87 Pop Jawa
Why I like it
1. The keyboards remind me of my old Casio PT-80 and SA-75 Casiotone keyboards I used to have.
2. Simple music because of the Javanese scales transposed to Western instruments.
3. I like Indonesian music and culture.
4. It has nice lyrics.
5. Nice instruments, ranging from guitar, bass, drums, to keyboard tones. Lambuzhao, I think you’d like some of the cheesy Casio/Yamaha keyboard tones in this, some of them sound like The Cars during Heartbeat City/Drive era, and I listen to them as well. The sound for the intro to Pitutur sounds like a cheaper version of the sound from Let’s Go and Hello Again.
6. Reminds me to the old Javanese records they did in the 70’s. Tonny died the year this was released, and this was one of the last records he did. Wondered how he would have sounded in the 90’s.

I was going to watch The Man From Earth again (I think I've watched it every year since it came out in 2007) to find that a sequel, The Man From Earth: Holocene, was released last year (and uploaded by the creators to file-sharing sites, hoping people might pay through donation later, which is an interesting concept).

The first film was about a 14,000-year-old man named John once again leaving his life behind, since he does not age. Working at a university in the USA, several of his colleagues and a student arrive to say goodbye, only finding out that he was leaving recently, wanting either to convince him to stay or to send him off properly. The resulting night in his cabin starts out as him, as an archaeology lecturer, asking a hypothetical question, "what if one man were to have lived 14,000 years", which his colleagues then discuss, with John gradually filling in details, eventually revealing his identity to the group (some believe him, others don't).

It's one of my favourite films, and I hope the sequel lives up to that, so here goes.

EDIT: Well, they lent a lot on one particular aspect from the first film pretty heavily (and if you've seen the first film, it might be obvious which bit), which I found... well it was annoying, but strictly speaking it made a lot of sense, it just seemed a bit forced. There's also a post-credit scene which would suggest a third film, assuming sufficient donations, which personally irritates me (I guess it's part of the "please donate money" idea).

It was a reasonable extension to the first film, but I think the film's creators could have done it with much more subtlety (the main conflict for the last half of the film is obvious within the first 15 minutes of the 100 minute film). The first film was good, like a theatrical version of a thought experiment that became reality. The sequel, on the other hand, turned out, rather ironically, quite, and I hate this term, "preachy".
You can tell the same lie a thousand times,
But it never gets any more true,
So close your eyes once more and once more believe

Those keyboard sounds are used a lot in 'classic' Sechura cumbia bands like Armonia 10 and Aguamarina from :per:.
Absolutely [<3] it! [+1]
Those old Casiotone and Yamaha keyboards were the bomb!
