RZ General Board / Re: Rezhead Berserk Button?
« Last post by Meisekimiu on January 13, 2018, 03:35:29 pm »
Not only do I too hate the "were they on drugs?" comments, but I also hate that people assume the fans are on drugs while listening to the music. Like, come on, I'm way too pretentious for drugs!  ;)

RZ General Board / Rezhead Berserk Button?
« Last post by ADeadlyFriend on January 09, 2018, 09:00:37 pm »
I don't know many Residents fans in real life, so this is my first time talking to other fans and I'm curious: What's an assumption or misconception people have about the Residents that won't fail to make us mad? For me it's assuming they were drugged up while writing the songs.

Hi, I'm ADeadlyFriend but you can call me "Deadly" if you want. I'm a 20-year-old Residents fan living in a Wisconsin town you'd have never heard of if you didn't live in it, and have been fan for a year as of last September. Aside from the Residents I enjoy tokusatsu and various manga. One day I hope to publish my own comics and design monsters for Super Sentai and Kamen Rider. When it comes to my favorite RZ project, it would be easier to decide my favorite hole in a sponge, but I do love Demons Dance Alone.

I'm gonna be honest... I've never actually listened to Brumalia. I was waiting for the holiday season!

Anyway, Day 8 makes my suspicions that The Residents really love Jelly Jack as a song even stronger. Which is cool because I love it too.

RZ Project Talk / Re: SANTA DOG '72 (Project of the Week for 18th of December)

I really dig the original Santa Dog. It's just a quick bit of early Rz goodness. My favorite part is the "when everyone lives in the future, the present is au revoir" part. Something about the way everything sounds in that part just sort of sums up what I like in music. I don't actually listen to Santa Dog that much though... I try to keep at least Santa Dog '72 exclusively a Christmas track.

Random note. I actually just listened to Santa Dog the other day after waking up hungover from a fun Christmas party and... boy was it irritating in that state! Is that what Santa Dog sounds like to people who have "normal" taste in music?!

RZ Project Talk / THE 12 DAY BRUMALIA EXTRAVAGANZA 2017-2018
« Last post by moleshow on December 25, 2017, 04:12:03 pm »
today, december 25, is the FIRST DAY OF BRUMALIA!

here's how this goes down: each day, we listen to a track until we reach the Epiphany track. if we feel so inclined, we write our thoughts down on em. by the end, we try to see if we have an epiphany. about something. anything.

RZ Project Talk / Re: PROJECT OF THE WEEK (18th of December): SANTA DOG (1972)
« Last post by moleshow on December 25, 2017, 03:37:53 pm »
for a while, i refused to get through the entirety of Santa Dog- im not sure why. i would get through Fire, and think "yeah thats enough of that".

that being said, there is some really fun and beautiful stuff that happens on the other tracks. i think in skipping them, stuff like Our Finest Flowers made a whole lot less sense. like, Kick A Cat? why would i do that? wheres that from?

it's interesting to see how a lot of the musical techniques used are consistently present in their later works, too. unfortunately, Santa Dog really doesn't hold any amazing personal meaning for me. but maybe someday it will.
