Hirasawa Susumu - Sim City 2
I am sure I have posted this before, but it is catchy as fuck.
Susumu Hirasawa (平沢進 Hirasawa Susumu, born April 2, 1954 in Tokyo, Kantō region) is a Japanese electropop artist and composer.
From 1972 to 1978, he performed in his first band Mandrake, a progressive rock group influenced by King Crimson and Yes. In 1979 he formed a New Wave synth-rock & techno-pop band called P-Model, along with two former members of Mandrake. They released a string of albums through the 1980s, and in 1989, Hirasawa began releasing solo work, while also continuing to work with the reactivated P-Model beginning in 1992.
Hirasawa uses Amiga computers extensively in his work, using applications such as Scala, Bars and Pipes, and OctaMED in the production of his music. One of the factors that set him apart from other Japanese electronic artists is ever-changing production techniques. For 2001’s Solar Ray album, his recording studio was powered completely by solar energy.
His subject matter can be equally unusual. A constant source of inspiration for his music has come from Thailand. In fact, the concept behind his 1995 album Sim City was drawn from his experiences travelling there, and more specifically, from Thai transsexuals. Guest Thai vocalists appear throughout that and proceeding albums, including 1996’s Siren, which was also a concept album based on Thailand. As for his lyrical inspiration, Hirasawa references the philosophies of yin and yang, his travels and the principles of nature vs. machines.
Anyways, this is from his solar-powered remix album. The original Sim City album, as far as I can tell, is this concept album about…like…futuristic sci-fi Thailand.
Hirasawa Susumu is also responsible for the soundtracks to such things as Paprika, Millennium Actress, Berserk, and Paranoia Agent. Satoshi Kon seemed fond of using him.
New costume debuted at Sakuracon 2014: Kurapika from Hunter x Hunter!
I’ve wanted to make this costume for nine years now; it was originally going to be in a group with a friend who no longer cosplays and who lives very far from me now. I was catching up with the 2011-now anime and decided this year it was happening.
There are some kinks I want to iron out before next time (also redo the white clothes) but I’m pretty darn happy with myself for surviving bias tape hell.
why live your life punk rock when you can live it prog rock: long, complicated, and nearly incomprehensible
hello fellow regular kids whats up
