The Latest BTS Tonight Show Takeover Involves Stacking Television Remotes, Shaking Guitars and Another Fantastic Performance

Published

on

BTS engaged in another bizarre yet hilarious challenge and put on yet another brilliant performance  in the latest episode of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, which the band are taking over this week. These boys can do no wrong.

The group took on the “Zoom Olympics” with Jimmy, a series of random challenges that can be performed via the video communication system Zoom (which I’m sure everyone is at least familiar with since the whole global pandemic and lockdown situation). The challenges involved contestants popping their head in and out of the frame as fast as they could (I could feel the whiplash just watching that one), stacking as many television remotes as possible in ten seconds and then finally- and quite possibly the most random of all- shaking picks out of an acoustic guitar. I know it is always hard to make a judgement on someone’s character without actually knowing them but all of the BTS members seem so down to earth and it shows even more so in games like this. None of them are afraid of making idiots out of themselves and it is refreshing to see a band of global superstars able to poke fun at themselves with ease. Of course, I’m sure some will think this is just the ranting of a fangirl with anime hearts in her eyes but I would urge you to watch some of their interviews and decide for yourself. I’m not denying the anime hearts thing though.

BTS also performed their song “Mikrokosmos” from their 2019 album “Map of the Soul: Persona”. Again, the difference in all of their Tonight Show performances has been one of the best things about their takeover. They have perfectly demonstrated their versatility as a group and their willingness and ability to take on any genre. “Mikrokosmos” is a softer K-Pop song entirely in Korean and it is one of my favourites. I actually only found it recently when looking through BTS’s music catalogue and it has quickly become one of the songs I find myself coming back to. Named after the Greek word for microcosm- and the Korean version translates to the same- “Mikrokosmos” is a perfect pop tune with excellent vocals and an uplifting tone. Fans of BTS’s softer pop tracks are sure to enjoy this one.  

The group also recently lent their vocals to a remix of the song the viral Tik Tok song” Savage Love” by New Zealand music producer Jawsh 685 and Jason Derulo.  Check out “Savage Love” (Laxed- Siren Beat) [BTS Remix] below! But I warn you, it does involve the BTS baby Jungkook swearing. I don’t know whether to be proud or appalled.

More on the BTS Tonight Show Takeover and their upcoming album BE soon.

Seven Reasons Why Brewster’s Cafe Is A BFD

Published

on

Brewster's Cafe Animal Crossing

Brewster’s Cafe: The Roost…

This Thursday’s Nintendo Direct was bursting with news, it was easy to miss the fact that Animal Crossing: New HorizonsBrewster’s Cafe, The Roost (and an update detailing it) were officially announced.

What’s the big effing deal about a pigeon and some coffee showing up in the Museum? Well, whether you’re new to the Animal Crossing family or an old-school Villager, we’re here to refresh the what and the why of the hype behind this beloved bird.

1. Brewster Is Awesome

Brewster is the aloof pigeon friend that everyone needs. Like the greatest server that puts you into a problematic spin, he is initially a little blasé but gets nicer as you BUY MORE COFFEE, and consume it correctly (by his exacting standards). His dialogue is delightfully dry, his persona, like so many on our islands, is perfecto. Get to know him well enough and it might get weird when he offers you the pigeon milk.

2. You Can Drink Coffee!

Drinking a hot cup of java is one of life’s greatest joys. So is playing Animal Crossing. Having a seat at the The Roost and getting to do both is simply the best.

3. We Knew It Was Coming!

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is a wonderful game by any metric, but the fans always want more. Brewster has been a staple throughout the series, and we all knew that he, like an expected treasured gift, would be coming. We even knew right where it would fit in the Museum! But they hadn’t made it official! It was making us a little jittery…

4. Brewster Gives You A Job!

Ok, this is not a given, and we’ll find out more in the dedicated Direct (or through playing). Like all of the cast of AC, Brewster’s role has shifted and changed slightly from game to game. But in past games, if you drank enough coffee, it would eventually open up a coffee serving mini-game, which is just charming as heck.

5. It Could Mean The Return Of Gyroids?!?

Arguably one of the saddest absences from New Horizons is its general lack of gyroids. For the uninitiated, gyroids are strange and adorably useless dancing robots (technically they are furniture, but I find that demeaning to their glory). If you’ve only played New Horizons, you’ve met a couple – they are the little dudes who show up when you have a bridge or incline under construction.

And like all adorable and useless objects before them, they are the best. They used to show up only when it rained, often instead of fossils, which is very refreshing to find under an ‘X’ on the ground.

What do they have to do with Brewster? In some of the past games Brewster would, if sufficiently convinced, offer to store your gyroids for you (there’s a ton of those buggers). Maybe they might come back with him?!? It’s a long-shot, but we dare to dream at Goomba Stomp.

6. We Need A Reason To Go Back!

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is beloved. But if you’ve played it for a year and filled your island to the brim, it’s hard to concoct too many reasons to jump back in.

Brewster and The Roost will get us in, but maybe it will give us more reasons to stick around. And most of all, hopefully it means there are still a few more missing favorites that we’ll get to see again. Katrina and Kapp’n are conspicuously absent, and we’d really like an expansion to Nookington’s, if anyone is keeping notes.

7. We Get A Direct About It!

What’s more fun than getting yet another Nintendo Direct? A Nintendo Direct that is JUST about Animal Crossing. That’s my utterly scientific and unbiased opinion, anyhow.

Here’s to hoping this signals lots more to come from one of the greatest games ever made!

game Boys, Ep. 255: Hot Topic – Human Teeth

Published

on

This week, the Game Boys are playing hot potato, but the potato is a hot topic that each Boy would like to discuss for five minutes before passing the potato to the next Boy who then suggests a new topic. I guess it’s not really all that much like hot potato. More like round robin subject suggestions, but you get what I’m saying. This week’s topics include: what Sonic is running from, ice cream, and human teeth.
