Today is a great day, not only is Portal 2 out (OMG I am gonna have so much dimension bending fun after work) but I've also discovered a new Taurimovie collaboration machinima. It features the vocal talents of PvPGurl (Gigi), Summergale and Shadowstepx. Now say what you like about Gigi, she has been a very successful and influential figure in the world of WoW music (yes it's a genre now, just accept it). A lot of people can just take her or leave; personally whilst I don't think this is her very best work it still had me clicking the replay button. I found Shadowstepx (is this a new incarnation of Nation?) to have a great rap segment - as you might has guessed I'm not typically a massive rap fan being the reserved Troll of culture that I am but I really enjoyed Shadow's bit. I'm undecided about Summergale's bit, it's not that there's anything wrong with it but after a seemingly long hiatus after the fantastic work she did on Ulduar with Cranius I guess I was expecting more (which is really my issue and not here's). However Summer's solo at the end played out quite nicely.
Visually, this machinima is absolutely FANTASTIC. Taurimovies is fast becoming one of my favourite machinimators. His art style is absolutely fantastic and follows the standard set by such machinima greats as RedEyeLobine and Irdeem. I really can't wait to see more of his stuff and I'd love to see how he achieves some of his effects because they're spectacular and clearly take a lot of hard work and clear direction.
Anyway, enjoy this, rate it, subscribe to their youtube channels and I hope you all have a smashing day filled with delicious Hobnob biscuits you can dunk into your Afternoon Tea. And remember, the cake is a lie... unless you're running with me in which case the cake is plentiful and restore mana YUM!
