    [h2]Polyrhythms[/h2]
    ''What is a polyrhythm?'' you might ask.
    Polyrhythm is the simultaneous sounding of two or more independent rhythms. Polyrhythm in general is a nonspecific term for the simultaneous occurrence of two or more conflicting rhythms, of which cross-rhythm is a specific and definable subset.—Novotney (1998: 265)
    And besides that it is also the raddest thing around.
    Many badass music uses polyrhythms, and most importantly it is used by the raddest dude alive, Tosin Abasi.





    [h2]Djent[/h2]
    Djent is also a rad thing although it is almost beaten to death.
    Djent, in its original meaning, is simply a short, metallic, palm-muted sound made by an electric guitar using mid to high range gain. And it makes rhythm sections sound awesome.
    Here have a few videos of the people who made it popular.

    Animals as Leaders


    Meshuggah


    Periphery


    TesseracT


    Cloudkicker


    And the raddest thing of all is that Djent uses dem rad polyrhythms.

    Everyone's favourite core.

    Post-ironic Beardcore (or PiBxC for short) describes a genre of hard/metal/math/etc. -core music whose practitioners choose to openly wear often extreme facial hair in a genuine manner despite the proliferation of facial hair as some form of “ironic” rebellion among the world’s youth community in the late 00’s.
    Popular Post-Ironic Beardcore bands are:

    Mastodon



    Protest The Hero

    [h2]Daft Punk[/h2]


    Wikipedia posted:
    Daft Punk is an electronic music duo consisting of French musicians Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo (born February 8, 1974) and Thomas Bangalter (born January 3, 1975). Daft Punk reached significant popularity in the late 1990s house movement in France and met with continued success in the years following, combining elements of house with synthpop. The duo is also credited with producing songs that were considered essential in the French house scene. They were managed from 1996 to 2008 by Pedro Winter (Busy P), the head of Ed Banger Records.
    Early in the group's career, the band members were strongly influenced by groups such as The Beach Boys and The Rolling Stones. Bangalter and de Homem-Christo were originally in a band called Darlin', which disbanded after a short period of time, leaving the two to experiment musically on their own. The duo became Daft Punk, and released their critically acclaimed debut album Homework in 1997. The 2001 release Discovery was even more successful, driven by the club singles "One More Time", "Digital Love" and "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger". In March 2005, the duo released the album Human After All to mixed reviews. However, the singles "Robot Rock" and "Technologic" achieved success in the United Kingdom. Daft Punk toured throughout 2006 and 2007 and released the live album Alive 2007, which won a Grammy award for Best Electronic/Dance Album. The duo composed the score of the film Tron: Legacy and in 2010 released the soundtrack album of the film.
    Daft Punk is noted for its elaborate live shows, in which visual elements and effects are incorporated with the music. The group is also known for its emphasis on visual and story components associated with their musical productions, as well as for wearing ornate robot costumes in public and while performing.
    These guys got me into electronic music so they belong in the OP.

    [h2]Chuck[/h2]

    Chuck is an action-comedy television program from the United States created by Josh Schwartz and Chris Fedak. The series is about an "average computer-whiz-next-door" who receives an encoded e-mail from an old college friend now working in the CIA; the message embeds the only remaining copy of the world's greatest spy secrets into Chuck's brain.
    Produced by College Hill Pictures, Fake Empire, Wonderland Sound and Vision and Warner Bros. Television, the series premiered on September 24, 2007, on NBC, airing on Monday nights at 8/7c. The show was aired in India and the rest of south Asia on Animax.
    Chuck was renewed and began in January 2010 for a third season following a campaign mounted by fans to have the network renew the show. A major sponsorship deal between NBC and the Subway restaurant chain was also announced to help cover costs of the third season. A fourth season was picked up by NBC and began airing on NBC's fall 2010 schedule.
    One of my favourite TV shows.
    The rad song they use in their intro song is Short Skirt/Long Jacket by Cake.




    [h2]Supernatural[/h2]

    Supernatural is an American supernatural and horror television series created by Eric Kripke, which debuted on September 13, 2005 on The WB, and is now part of The CW's lineup. Starring Jared Padalecki as Sam Winchester, Jensen Ackles as Dean Winchester and Misha Collins as Castiel, the series follows the brothers as they hunt demons and other figures of the supernatural. The series is produced by Warner Bros. Television, in association with Wonderland Sound and Vision. The current executive producers are Eric Kripke, McG, and Robert Singer; former executive producer Kim Manners died of lung cancer during production of the fourth season.
    Also one of my favourite TV shows.
    The rad song they use in every season finale is Carry On Wayward Son by Kansas.




    [h2]Pokémon[/h2]

    Concept posted:
    The concept of the Pokémon universe, in both the video games and the general fictional world of Pokémon, stems from the hobby of insect collecting, a popular pastime which Pokémon executive director Satoshi Tajiri-Oniwa enjoyed as a child.[7] Players of the games are designated as Pokémon Trainers, and the two general goals (in most Pokémon games) for such Trainers are: to complete the Pokédex by collecting all of the available Pokémon species found in the fictional region where that game takes place; and to train a team of powerful Pokémon from those they have caught to compete against teams owned by other Trainers, and eventually become the strongest Trainer, the Pokémon Master. These themes of collecting, training, and battling are present in almost every version of the Pokémon franchise, including the video games, the anime and manga series, and the Pokémon Trading Card Game.
    In most incarnations of the fictional Pokémon universe, a Trainer that encounters a wild Pokémon is able to capture that Pokémon by throwing a specially designed, mass-producible spherical tool called a Poké Ball at it. If the Pokémon is unable to escape the confines of the Poké Ball, it is officially considered to be under the ownership of that Trainer. Afterwards, it will obey whatever its new master commands, unless the Trainer demonstrates such a lack of experience that the Pokémon would rather act on its own accord. Trainers can send out any of their Pokémon to wage non-lethal battles against other Pokémon; if the opposing Pokémon is wild, the Trainer can capture that Pokémon with a Poké Ball, increasing his or her collection of creatures. Pokémon already owned by other Trainers cannot be captured, except under special circumstances in certain games. If a Pokémon fully defeats an opponent in battle so that the opponent is knocked out (i.e., "faints"), the winning Pokémon gains experience and may level up. When leveling up, the Pokémon's statistics ("stats") of battling aptitude increase, such as Attack and Speed. From time to time the Pokémon may also learn new moves, which are techniques used in battle. In addition, many species of Pokémon possess the ability to undergo a form of metamorphosis and transform into a similar but stronger species of Pokémon, a process called evolution.
    In the main series, each game's single-player mode requires the Trainer to raise a team of Pokémon to defeat many non-player character (NPC) Trainers and their Pokémon. Each game lays out a somewhat linear path through a specific region of the Pokémon world for the Trainer to journey through, completing events and battling opponents along the way. Each game features eight especially powerful Trainers, referred to as Gym Leaders, that the Trainer must defeat in order to progress. As a reward, the Trainer receives a Gym Badge, and once all eight badges are collected, that Trainer is eligible to challenge the region's Pokémon League, where four immensely talented trainers (referred to collectively as the "Elite Four") challenge the Trainer to four Pokémon battles in succession. If the trainer can overcome this gauntlet, he or she must then challenge the Regional Champion, the master Trainer who had previously defeated the Elite Four. Any Trainer who wins this last battle becomes the new champion and gains the title of Pokémon Master.
    One of the raddest song of them all.


    My favourite song from the series.


    Make sure you get the below album for all the theme songs until 2007.





    [h2]Digimon[/h2]

    Digimon (デジモン Dejimon?), short for "Digital Monsters" (デジタルモンスター Dejitaru Monsutā?), is a Japanese media franchise encompassing anime, manga, toys, video games, trading card games and other media. The franchise's eponymous creatures are monsters of various forms living in a "Digital World", a parallel universe that originated from Earth's various communication networks.

    Digimon hatch from eggs called Digi-Eggs or Digitama. In the English iterations of the franchise there is another type of Digi-Egg that can be used to digivolve, or transform, Digimon. This second type of Digi-Egg is called a "Digimental" in Japanese. They age via a process called "Digivolution" which changes their appearance and increases their powers. The effect of Digivolution, however, is not permanent in the partner Digimon of the main characters in the anime, and Digimon who have digivolved will most of the time revert back to their previous form after a battle or if they are too weak to continue. Some Digimon act feral. Most, however, possess large amounts of intelligence and human speech. They are able to digivolve by the use of Digivices that their human partners have. In some cases, as in the first series, the DigiDestined (known as the 'Chosen Children' in the original Japanese) had to find some special items such as crests and tags so the Digimon could digivolve into further stages of evolution known as Ultimate and Mega in the dub.
    The first Digimon anime introduces the Digimon life cycle: They age in a similar fashion to real organisms, but do not die under normal circumstances because they are made of reconfigurable data. Any Digimon that receives a fatal wound will dissolve into infinitesimal bits of data. The data then recomposes itself as a Digi-Egg, which will hatch when rubbed gently, and the Digimon goes through its life cycle again. Digimon who are reincarnated in this way will sometimes retain some or all their memories of their previous life. However, if a Digimon's data is completely destroyed, they will die.
    Digimon Theme


    Japanese Digimon Theme   This one is radder in my opinion.

    only ones to take upon
    no original ideas are involved
    hived minded population growth
    new ones only too evolved

    seldom sees the light of day
    the places we hold onto
    stereo the things we say
    longing to be true

    better news for better days
    all the cares all tomorrow
    on the table on market list
    too fake too in sorrow

    spoken thought in shiny vaults
    beter in safer places
    cracked a code now at fault
    save it for safer spaces
    This song goes out to Christopher Turk-Wise.

    Obligatory First Page Kinks Lyrics:

    Baby, you don't know what you're saying,
    Because you're a victim of bright city lights,
    And your mind is not right.
    You think the world's at your feet.

    'Cause you're starstruck, baby, starstruck.
    Taken in by the lights,
    Think you'll never look back,
    You know you're starstruck on me.

    Baby, you're running around like you're crazy.
    You go to a party and dance through the night,
    And you'll drink 'till you're tight,
    And then you're out on your feet.

    'Cause you're starstruck, baby, starstruck.
    Taken in by the lights,
    Think you'll never look back,
    You know you're starstruck on me.

    Baby, watch out or else you'll be ruined,
    'Cause once you're addicted to wine and champagne,
    It's gonna drive you insane,
    Because the world's not so tame.

    And you're starstruck, baby, starstruck.
    You're taken in by the lights,
    Think you'll never look back,
    You know you're starstruck on me.
    Don't you know that you are,
    Starstruck on me.
    And you always will be,
    Starstruck on me.
    Starstruck on me.
