Tag: Final Fantasy
The Final Fantasy series has lost a lot of its brand integrity over the last few years, hasn’t it? Maybe most of us just grew out of the target demographic and don’t find Philosophy 101 styled anime soap operas all that appealing anymore. Square Enix has nothing to worry about though, since there will always be an audience out there just frothing at the mouth for the next installment so they can start writing their fanfictions starring their Original Characters (do not steal). Smug anime nerds and Final Fantasy fans go hand-in-hand, so let’s take a look at the Final Fantasy Forums and see what they’re up to.
If you can’t make it through the whole thing, skip to 2:40 and finish the video from there.
I’d like to take a moment here to talk about the LeetStreet Boys and why they’re deluded pieces of shit. I know we’ve featured some of their auto-tuned pop rock “music” before, but we’ve never taken a look at the train wreck that is the actual band members. Let’s start with the most prominent member and co-founder of the band, Matt:
Matt is the lead singer of the otaku super group Leetstreet Boys. Like Japanophiles across the country, Matt’s obsessed with all things anime and video games, which are his main preoccupations. He also writes about falling in love, and the mix of fandom and romance in his songs have charmed otaku girls nationwide. Audiences packed with fangirls scream for him at conventions!
Given the norm rap cannot stand up to other genres of music
No matter how popular or accepted it gets. Everything it lacks, one finds elsewhere.
Rap is the lowest form of stealing – fourthly when compared to other genres.
Notable rap songs (that still pale in comparison to everything else in my music collection): Satoshi Ise – Stage of Finalfight: Needle, Staffroll; Kenichiru Fukui – Shudder; Jun Senoue and Fumie Kamatani – Wild Canyon, Meteor Herd, Unknown from M.E. – Theme of Knuckles
Rap bands or ‘artist’s I’ve hard that suck: Will Smith, Eve, Missy Elliot, Outkast, Eminem, Jay-Z, Ja Rule, DMX, Nas, P. Diddy, M.C. Hammer, Ice Cube, J. LO, Pink, Sisqo, Quincy Jones (should have stayed with jazz you fop fool!), Pharcyde, Nappy Roots, Beastie Boys, Busta Rhymes, Shaq, Run DMC, Coolio, Snoop Dog
So you can’t say I haven’t listened to enough rap to know that it isn’t music.

For all those idiots who say I haven’t listened to enough rap to know it isn’t music I can play that game as well. Since I’ve listened to roughly 30% of suggested rap (and wasted much time in the process) I’m going to waste your time. You have to listen to 30% of my suggested VGM list (or other VGM composers) and have a decent understanding of the musical aesthetics in each song for any of your comments to hold water. Otherwise, your non-points are moot.
Edit: This is one of the worst users/groups I’ve ever come across. Expect more on them. Can only handle so much of this shit at once.
Fuck this world.
I would do a write up on this guy, but there’s not much to say. He doesn’t run any horrible sites or journals, but he does have hundreds of images of him in awful cosplay. His favorite type of characters to play are the ones who weigh around 200 pounds less than him. Also, his name sounds like boner.
Here are his best moments:
