A Song That Is Much Too Short When Compared To The Length Of Its Title (Part 1: Intro – Part 2: Denial – Part 3: Acceptance – Part 4: Epilogue)
Finally, a new song! I hope you can squeeze a listen into your schedule.
I was bored one night, and looking for something silly to do. I had this stupid idea and recorded a quick acoustic video of it and published it on Instagram. Later I decided to record a clean electric version.
The song is available as a name-your-own-price purchase and also as a free download on my Bandcamp!
A lot of people told me I should watch Steven Universe, so I recently started doing so. Since episode one, I was so much into this song. Of course I love ukulele, but the song is also catchy, the harmonies are great and the melody is nice. So I really had to cover it.
I did so one night after work, I could have spent more time on it but I really wanted to post it quickly. The little amount of time spent on it makes the cover a bit sketchy (as always), but for once I am quite happy with my high-pitched singing, which I usually find horrible. The instruments I used include the ukulele of course, glockenspiel, toy piano (at last I got to use it after buying it one year ago at least), hand claps, and taps on my belly (my tribute to steven) to recreate the bass drum.
This is a mostly acoustic cover of this great theme from the NES’s classic Duck Tales.
It all began with acoustic guitar tracks, recorded with the cable output as well as a microphone, but then a hoard of kazoos broke in, followed by electric guitars and a glockenspiel.
This theme has been haunting me for a while, we even covered it with Dorémi Game & Cie (now known as BO•OST), but I think it became worse when I heard Les Negitachi sing it during Nolife’s 9th birthday.
On Saturday, September 26th, I have had the privilege, the honour and the pleasure of opening for Brisbane-based band Toehider‘s Mike Mills.
Mike is the artist I admire and respect the most, and I can only urge you to listen to his music and watch his videos. Everyone at the show was amazed, the metal fan as much as the pop fan. Mike’s impressive voice and virtuoso guitar playing convinced everyone of his talent, especially at the end of the show, when all the audience was singing along to this amazing Bohemian Rhapsody cover.
As if watching and listening to him play was not enough to make my day, I had the pleasure to play and sing with him the opening song of Spartakus and the Sun Beneath The Sea.
Le dimanche 29 Mars se déroulera la 400è DS in Paris!
Nous y fêterons en plus les 4 ans de la Nintendo 3DS et les 10 ans de la Nintendo DS. Comme d’habitude, vous allez streetpasser comme des fous et jouer en multi à des jeux comme Mario Kart 7 ou Smash Bros. Mais pour cette occasion spéciale, d’autres jeux mythiques seront jouables sur plusieurs consoles. Vous pourrez participer à des tournois pour gagner des lots encore secrets mais qui s’annoncent à la hauteur de l’événement. Et pour l’animation musicale, les orgas m’ont fait le plaisir de me demander de vous jouer une sélection de musiques et chansons issues de jeux vidéo, dessins animés et séries TV.

As I was playing the Super Smash Bros for 3DS demo, i knew I wanted to cover this theme. Having a show booked a few days later, it was the perfect occasion.

Though I had been hearing about Firefly for quite a while, nothing except Joss Whedon’s name made me want to watch it. Yet, when I recently had free time and not much to watch, I decided to give it a try.
