Well that was fun by ryounkura Well that was fun by ryounkura
I've never spent this long on a meme before.

Never again.


All photos taken from google and edited heavily except the ones that are obviously from the Gorillaz site. Guh.

I really like Plastic Beach, have I mentioned? Yes. Yep.

Anyone else remember when music videos used to be on TV? I miss the 90s/early 00s.

Hehe, they should make "reject false icons" bumper stickers! I like the way you draw the characters, they look neat in your style. And yeah, watching too many Gorillaz OR Daft Punk music vids will make you think you're high. XD

I got a random story~
Soo, last night, this was the last thing that I saw before I turned off my computer for bed.
I had had a pretty bad day, but seeing this kinda cheered me up, so I decided to listen to the very few Gorrilaz songs I had for a bit. After those were up, I decided to turn on Pandora on my iPod just to see what would come up, and the first song that came up was a Gorillaz song that I've never heard before.
Not only was that extremely freaky, IT... totally made my sucky day.

So I'd just thank you for getting the ball rolling to making me happy last night. It means a lot~ c:
Also, you're AWESOME.

OH GOSH I'm so sorry

Forgive me, I typed my story at like 11 at night, so I just figured out I had a bunch of typos.
Maybe next time I'll figure out how to spell.

Aww, thanks. I was just so embarrassed when I found out I spelt a few things wrong, and I couldn't help but apologize for my failure to spell some words correctly.

I'm seriously cracking up that you thought you were high when you first saw their music videos. (Admittedly I had that happen to me when I first came across that kid's show Boohbah. I kept watching just to make sure there were credits, because I was so terrified it would turn out it was all just an extremely detailed hallucination. Not even kidding.)

:iconryounkura:
ryounkura Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2010
Lol it was partly Daft Punk's fault too, with their blue people videos and whatever else was in there. Also it was late, so for some reason trying to wrap my mind around the far from ordinary music videos was very difficult. I've never heard of that BoohBah show before, should I be scared?
Reply
:iconkaidrawn:
KaiDrawn Featured By Owner Aug 13, 2010
Man those Intersella555 videos are fantastic. I think I'd be pretty confused as well if I first stumbled upon them late at night.

Boohbah was made by the guys who created Teletubbies, and while it may sound hard to believe, it is way more incomprehensible than Teletubbies ever was. It is also colored like an acid trip. Here's a few clips if you dare watch. [link] [link]

And Jamie Hewlett's work isn't better, you're style is different. But I do think the 2 styles have a lot in common.

Huh? I thought the Gorillaz weren't formed until 1998? Or are we talking about Blur?
Reply

R9DH3 Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2010  Student Digital Artist
Oh dear god, why'd I put '1992', I wasn't even born yet.

Hnn... From when I was around 3-4 years old, and since I'm currently 13... (Agh, screw my math.)
Right, that's back in 1998.

If you were talking about Blur, it was introduced to me by my father dearest when I was already 7. Then I figured out later on he was the same guy doing vocals for Gorillaz.

Hahaha amazing XDD You know they're doing a North American tour!! 8DD Tickets are selling for rather cheap! Unfortunately they won't be using holograms...

LOL LIMITLESS CLOTHING OPTIONS I love that X3

Thanks :)

I wanted to get some but I live in the South East so there's none I can really go to for cheap, since airplane tickets+hotels+concert ticket=ballbuster on my wallet.

Though I'm glad Damon is perfoming out front now, he deserves it (: I like the liveband even if Murdoc hates them
Reply
:iconecholorin:
EchoLorin Featured By Owner Aug 16, 2010
Yeah I could see how that would be quite an expense, one you would have to probably plan for YEARS in advance. I would love to go (since they are playing about an hour away from my home) but I don't think I afford a ticket. XDD Why does the greatness tease us?

Damon is such a fantastic performer and I'm glad he's finally getting the attention he so well deserves. Even if they aren't using the holograms I still think it would be quite the fantastic performance to attend. : )

Well Murdoc just hates everything... except for sex... but we won't talk about that.
