Psycho Mantis Doesn’t Need A Hook

Thursday, November 19th, 2009

I’d say that half of the music I like is pure, decadent electro that doesn’t really require much thought. The other half is music that tells a story, and that’s why I like this track from Oddioblender. Give it a listen and let the story play out.

Oddioblender - Psychics Don’t Need Hooks

After listening to it, I totally started remember Psycho Mantis from Metal Gear Solid. Remember how he read your memory card, and the only way to beat him was to unplug your controller, and plug it into the other port? Truly a memorable moment, and definitely some fourth-wall breaking shiznit right there.

You know who else doesn’t need a hook? Jay-z, that’s who.

Metal Gear Solid cyborg ninja

The Metal Gear wiki has the full story, but basically the combination of  a cybernetic suit of armor and a High Frequency blade makes for one wicked ninja.

This week my friend also reminded me of the genius that is the GZA (aka the Genius). If RZA’s futuristic personality is some sort of crime-fighting pimp, then the GZA will definitely be reincarnated as a cyborg ninja in the future.

Power GRaphixx MGS4 shirtIf you know me, you know that I fucking love the Metal Gear Solid series of games and that I think Hideo Kojima is a genius.

You also might know that I love wicked t-shirts, and this one created by the ultimate team-up of Uniqlo and the Tokyo’s Power-Graphixx Inc. design group is amazing.

Uniqlo has a few more MGS4 shirts here, but they seem to be pretty special edition and basically unavailable.

If anyone knows where I can hook up with one, I would be forever indebted to you.

And since we’re talking about Metal Gear Solid, I feel like I might as well post a track about Snake. Man, I definitely never thought I’d hear someone rap about the fact that you have to plug the controller into the other port to beat Psycho Mantis in MGS2.
