Pokemon Theme in 20 Styles of the Late 90s

Alright, so we found this fairly recently, and it’s both impressive and hysterical.

Here’s this guy with enough vocal range and musical talent to imitate the original Pokemon theme song in 20 different styles, all from the late 90s era. We’ll admit, we’ve really only heard of most of the groups that are listed (Kris more so than Rachel), but many of them are iconic to be recognizable.

His name is Anthony Vincent and his channel is called Ten Second Songs. He has a decent amount of videos, all boasting songs that he sings in various styles in one go. We hope you guys enjoy (or, at the very least, are amused) at his sheer talent!

A Kingdom Hearts Medley by Rush Garcia

Here, have some more music!

As you can probably imagine, music plays a huge role in our love of video games. Not only does music in video games help set the mood, we adore hearing how people can remix or put their own spin on iconic medleys. This one, for example, is a Kingdom Hearts Medley by Rush Garcia.

Rush Garcia takes beautiful video game music and rearranges them as orchestra pieces, coming out with amazing results. Not only does Rush Garcia do fan compilations with video game music, there’s also plenty of original pieces to listen to. We hope you enjoy Rush Garcia’s work as much as we do!

Pokemon Medley by Tina Guo

There has been plenty of news about Pokemon fairly recently, such as Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon coming out this November, Pokken Tournament for September, and Pokemon GO’s first anniversary this summer. What better way to celebrate these lovely milestones than by blasting the music?

Tina Guo is a cellist that we recently discovered while on one of our many trips to our local Barnes and Noble bookstore. While browsing, our ears perked up upon hearing familiar game music coming from the overhead speakers, such as Legend of Zelda, Super Mario Bros. and, of course, Pokemon. Leaping down the escalator, we made our way to the music department on the first floor to ask what was playing. The employee told us all about Tina Guo and her newest album Game On.

While another video game fan had bought the last album that Barnes and Noble had that day, we did find Tina on YouTube and Spotify, and she’s been a delight to listen to. Here’s her Pokemon Medley from her Game On album, and we hope you enjoy it like we do!

Nintendo Switch’s Durability

Double Jump Kris MiiHappy June, everyone!

Summer is right around the corner (I think… it’s been very rainy over here lately), and with that is usually more time to spend playing video games. With the Switch, it’s easy enough to play outside too!

I recently read an article about a YouTube channel whose whole premise is to take expensive gadgets and tech toys and drop them from enormous heights. It’s both exhilarating and frightening for a tech geek like myself.

One of the latest videos tested the durability of the Nintendo Switch. Considering how difficult it was to get the console when it first came out, it baffles the mind to think that someone out there has an extra console (and the money) to test this out.

Amazing, isn’t it? R.I.P. the poor left Joy-Con, but other than that piece, everything still seems to be in tact. So, if a Nintendo Switch can survive a 1000 foot drop onto concrete, then accidentally dropping it onto the kitchen floor shouldn’t be bad, right?

Would you be willing to test drop some of your favorite gadgets? Know anyone crazy enough who would? What do you think of the Switch’s durability?

Friday Favorites: Nerdy Nummies

Double Jump Kris MiiHappy Friday everyone!

It’s June, and I hope everyone is having a great start to the summer months (well, if you live in an area where there is a summer). Summer brings thoughts of cookouts and all sorts of baking. A while ago, I had made a post about Rosanna Pansino and her fun YouTube channel dedicated to nerdy recipes. Here are a few of my favorites today!

Pokemon MooMoo Milkshakes

What’s better than a nice cold milkshake on a hot summer day? Not much, except for maybe a chocolate milkshake. Named after the iconic treat that was first featured in the second generation of Pokemon games, MooMoo milkshakes are a simple treat to make.

Hyrule Rupee Cookies

Cookies and milk go hand in hand, so why not have some delicious fruit-flavored sugar cookies to go with those milkshakes? Rosanna creates three different kinds of sugar cookies to match the various pieces of Hyrule currency from the Legend of Zelda franchise. These cookies look so cute, too!

Super Mario Question Block Surprise Cake

 

Surprise cakes look like so much fun, with all the candy or prizes spilling out when the cake is cut! While this cake may be a bit time-consuming to make, it’d be the perfect dessert for a fun video game night with friends!

Do you watch Nerdy Nummies? Any certain recipes or treats that remind you of your favorite games?

Legend of Zelda Ocarina Medley

Being fans of the Legend of Zelda franchise, when we were younger, we actually bought a couple of beautiful pendant ocarinas. We don’t play them very well, but it’s a fun souvenir that reminds us of one of our favorite video game series!

Recently we stumbled upon a new YouTube channel called STL Ocarina, a company that produces ocarinas and promotes them with beautiful music videos. Below is a Zelda Medley, with the musician being Lena Leclaire. We hope you enjoy the music and wonderful scenery as much as we did!

Skyrim Theme (Acapella & Violin Cover)

As many of you know, music is one of our favorite aspects of video games, and it’s amazing to us to see how creative artists can be when it comes to covering beloved video game tunes. This time we’re showing off another favorite of ours, the Skyrim Theme performed acapella style with a violin accompaniment.

Peter Hollens is an extremely talented acapella singer who has covered many a song from movies, video games, and pop culture from all over the place. He has an adorable family that he shares his music with, including his wife Evynne who performs on her own channel and has collaborated many times with Peter.

The Skyrim Theme, however, is a collaboration with famed violinist Lindsey Stirling, who has an amazing repertoire of her own. She has three albums of original content and beautiful music videos to go with them.

We hope that you enjoy this music video and like Peter and Lindsey enough to go and peruse their other content!
