I’m not much for metal anymore but I have a few favourites still, mostly a holdover from years back. Rammstein is certainly one of these holdovers. There’s nothing quite like metal sung in German. It’s almost like it was made for the music.
So, I find this:
It’s from back in the golden, care-free, pre-covid days of 2018. As I said, I’m not into metal as much now so it totally flew under my radar. But it’s just marvelous.
Take a listen. I’ll be going down the Rammstein YouTube rabbit-hole…
Happy New Year. You can almost taste the enthusiasm there, can’t you?
Let’s all agree that 2020 was crap, yeah? I was fortunate enough to get out the year without losing any loved ones to the Australian bush fires, murder hornets, Boris Johnson, Brexit, Trump or Covid-19. I count myself lucky.
Now begins a fresh orbit of the Earth around the sun and it’s a good time to shake off the cobwebs and reach for some hope.
I’ve not been one for hope. Especially not for the last few months. It’s been in short supply here in Desert Of Zin Mansions.
But it’s a New Year.
The calendar is fresh, Earth’s rotation has begun anew, there’s potential ready for all of us.
And the sunlight hours (for us in the north of the world) are getting longer.
There’s and all new Transformers animated series, in a nifty anime style, on Netflix, called, if you didn’t read the title of the post, “Transformers: War for Cybertron”. It’s part of a trilogy of six episode miniseries with the first called Siege.
It’s all about the Autobots trying to escape Megatron’s Cybertron, while he tries to bring about their total annihilation.
I’ll be honest, it’s the same origin story that has been done to death about the Transformers but its well done, the animation is pretty cool, the synth soundtrack is kicking and it’s actually a lot of fun. And Ultra Magnus is in it. And Jetfire too. 🙂 And few other characters who it was good, and unexpected, to see.
The next two chapters of the trilogy aren’t out yet but if you gain any joy out of giant robot space opera, then I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.
