#Fetusinfetu by HATEBEAN

ALBUM REVIEWS, LOST ART and RANDOM THOUGHTS

It’s been about 4 years since Hatebean first entered the scene… and then left the scene (only to return a few minutes later because it forgot its car keys, but then it promptly left again without even saying goodbye to the host).

Today we look back upon the Hatebean World Tour, the release of #FetusInFetu, fan reaction and critical acclaim for what one person has called “a band”.

Designed as “an audio graphic novel”, Hatebean‘s FetusInFetu album tells the post-apocalyptic story of Dirt Bones – a man born with a twin… within….

Music Critic Hunter Young wrote – “Twining together the horrific nature of two minds inside one body, the narrative is quite cohesive and tells the story of the struggle from it’s hellacious beginning or their birth, to finish with the acceptance and reconciliation of the warring minds/souls to share the body.” [link to full review]

Music Writer Rick Jamm wrote – “Packed with stirring moments. One of HATEBEAN’s biggest skills — writing structurally complex songs while retaining simplicity – a similar trait also runs through Pink Floyd’s music.” (I have included a link to Pink Floyd in case you want to find out what those guys are all about) [link to full review]

Bohemian Rhapsody

Way before the movie came out, I had noticed that Bohemian Rhapsody was one of the most-covered songs I came across online.

Why?

I THINK it’s the same reason we landed men on the moon. Not because it is easy… but because it is hard!

So – We will start with the original, and them move into ‘more interesting’ territory. I don’t expect you to get through them ALL… the mandatory videos are listed in RED LETTERS!

If I were God

"CHURCH" by Will Pendarvis

If I were God…

…the Universe would be 2-dimensional and drawn in crayon. That is because I am a big dummy and can’t even BEGIN to fathom things like infinity, free-will vs omniscience, string theory.. or even simple division if I have to be honest.

But perhaps, if a great scientist could explain to me the Big Bang as if I were a two-year old.. then I could get it!

Nope. Astrophysicists talk in a language that I can barely wrap my head around. And when I DO wrap my head around it, it makes me physically dizzy.

I was just reading this article from CNET: March 2018 [Stephen Hawking explains what happened before Big Bang ]

Here are some of my favorite quotes from the article:

  • “Ordinary real time is replaced by imaginary time”
  • “Imaginary time behaves like a fourth direction of space”
  • “Imaginary time is a four-dimensional curved surface like the surface of the Earth, but with two more dimensions.”
  • “We should steer clear of aliens entirely”

It all sounds like lyrics from a Pink Floyd song or something. In fact:

Here is Roger Waters with a few final words on the subject. Regardless of your politics or theology or understanding of the nature of the astronomical objects… I’m sure you are capable of appreciating an AMAZING PERFORMANCE!
