Blow Your Speakers for Baby Jesus

King Diamond: No Presents for Christmas

I’m making a post on Christmas day, which if nothing else should indicate the degree of reverence I have for the holiday season.

Christmas, and the train-wreck of bad taste that ensues, is not entirely without its benefits, particularly the unquestionably awful effect it has on rock music. Artists struggling to maintain their hair-flicking, could-give-a-fuck bad-assery through a three-and-a-half minute ditty about magic always makes for priceless entertainment. So without further ado….To the YouTube!

    The Seikima vid almost caused a laughter induced beverage + keyboard collision, a work of genius indeed.

    Another funny (but in an entirely different way) take on Christmas music would be this video of Tchaikovsky’s Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy being played on a pair of 7 foot tall Tesla coils.

    Heee… Ben, I mentioned that one in the Krampus/Humbug post a while ago. Can’t tell you how many times my friends and I have watched that muhfugger over the past few days. Betcha it’s ten times radder in person. (Apparently they’re really loud?)
    Mil, you’ve seen the Shagrath/Kamelotvideo, right?

    On second thought, let’s not go to Kamelot. It is a silly place.

    The opposite of Grinch….would that be a baby puppy? Cuz that’s, like, totally me :)

    @ Ben, I saw those Tesla Coils, courtesy Mer’s post. I want to see them bash out ‘The Final Countdown’.
    I like how the dude from Seikima II is like ‘yeah, uh, I MEANT to break the cross. Fuck your god. He stupid’. Seriously, though, they’ve got some great material and I highly recommend them if you’re into heavy metal at all.

    Mer: Well I thought I originally saw that telsa coil vid via metafilter, but running a search there for it yielded no results so it looks particularly likely that I saw it here (I remember skimming the humbug post) and simply forgot that fact. I feel somewhat silly, heh.

    I want one of those midi controlled tesla coils, hook it up to my kurzweil and have lots of fun (although at 110 decibels earplugs might be a decent idea, very tolerant neighbors would help too).
