If you have been following RonBurgandy's awesome dTunes series, you will know that I have been your gracious host this week. I figure what better way to pimp my contributions than to deliver a special song roundup right here on the recaps! Below, I have posted four songs representing each day I have hosted. These songs were not featured on their respective days; they are unique to these recaps! Isn't that special?

This is all building up to tomorrow's grand finale when I unveil the ultra, super-secret, mega-hyper, fifth-day musical artist! Why did I do all this? Because today was a boring day on the blogs and I thought you all deserved a little something extra.

Day 1: Random a.k.a. Mega Ran
"Final Battle" feat. Loose

Sampling "Last Boss" from Mega Man 6, this collaboration is sure to get the club jumpin'!



Day 2: The Grammar Club
"Bank Holiday"

In this music video, Shael does his best Kanye West impersonation. Also, MC Frontalot cameo! The first 15 seconds are dark, so don't mind that.



Day 3: Eurodance One-Hit Wonders
"Mr. Vain" by Culture Beat

I know what I want! Do you?



Day 4: Richard Cheese
"Star Wars Cantina"

This one is actually a parody of Barry Mannilow's "Copacabana" featuring Star Wars references.



Day 5: ???

What will tomorrow bring? It's a mystery! Fancy a guess? In fact, let's turn this into a contest! If you can guess tomorrow's artist, I will mail you $20! Hell, I bet ten bucks you won't even guess the correct genre! I mean, what pattern am I following here? Monday was hip-hop, Tuesday was nerdcore, Wednesday was Eurodance, and today was lounge. I'm a wild card, people!

Remember, if you are interested in joining the ranks of the dTunes crew and sharing your favorite jams with the community, read this and drop RonBurgandy an email. He's always looking for fresh meat!

Anyway, on to the recaps.


*- A few months back, garganroo whipped up a badass survival-horror concept that caught the interest of a publisher. He really should return to the project and make something out of it!

F- If you are going to do a multipart series, make sure each entry has some meat on its bones. I can sneeze on my keyboard and come up with more content than this.
F- These thoughts concerning The Beatles: Rock Band would have been fine, but michi's bad attitude has to once fuck everything up. I don't mind, though. Any excuse to fail michi is fine by me.
F- You know, saying that you are going to hide your blog translates to "fail this, please" in Recapanese.

Current "Bloggers Wanted" assignment

Villains that did nothing wrong

Villains in all media, not just video games, can end up being a dime a dozen. Far too often, a villain's motives boil down to "I am a bad, and so I do bad things. Fear me." While this format has worked for countless stories, at this point in my life (the ripe old age of 20) I’ve become jaded and grumpy, finding myself rolling my eyes when I see yet another antagonist wreaking havoc with no background or reasoning presented as to why they’re being such a butthole.

What’s far more interesting to me is when a villain’s motives or actions come across as justified, perhaps leaving you rooting for them to defeat the protagonist [insert Elder God Tier villain meme here].

My favorite example of this would be Meruem from the Chimera Ant arc of Hunter x Hunter. While he doesn’t necessarily fit the exact mold I laid out above, he’s easily one of the most dynamic and curious villains I’ve ever come across. For the sake of not spoiling what is perhaps one of the most exciting, action-packed, and tear-inducing arcs in anime history, I won’t delve into the details of what makes Meruem so great. Instead I encourage anyone who hasn’t seen Hunter x Hunter to set aside some time and plow through the series. Really, it’s that good.

But hey, that’s just how I feel. I’m sure there are folks out there who prefer their villains to be simple. If I ever met one of these theoretical people I might have a panic attack, but I’ll deal with that should the time come. I’m sure after some deep breaths we would get along. Maybe we could even snuggle, should my husband allow such an event to transpire.

All said and done, we arrive at the topic of this month’s Bloggers Wanted: Villains that did nothing wrong. Due to communication errors, this entry in the hallowed halls of Bloggers Wanted is a tad late. Regardless, all you have to do is head over to the Community Blog section of the site, and whip up a Cblog about a villain who you feel was secretly the good guy all along.
