I make music and we (meaning my sort of-band) just recorded our debut album, set to be released in August or September.

Here's a video of the recordings: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i0EbfHMHIeY

And here is our facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/ziniofficial

We play sort of a mix between traditional and ethic music from around the world and more modern genres like Rock, pop and electronic music. (At least we try to)

I prefer 30 fps. Depends on what game though. If I want to be immersed in a world I'll take 30 any day.

If I want to drive really fast or shoot fools/crazy fast action (Vanquish) 60 can be cool too.

So I am part of a music project/group called Zini. What we try to do is blend traditional music of different cultures with modern genres like rock, pop and electronic music.

We recently made a music video for our latest single "Volution", which is also probably the worst example of the style I described above as it is mostly a guitar-oriented pop song.

Anyways, here is the video:

There are some political aspects to this video, but I really don't want to start that kind of discussion here, so I would appreciate if you kept political thoughts out of your comments.

Tell me what you think and hope you enjoy it!

Clearly the best option is watching the full Grindhouse experience.

I remember actually enjoying Death Proof more, as I always love Tarantino's writing.Both are great though, and by god don't forget all the trailers.

@filipholm: My first one was just a cheapo one I got off ebay, but I ended up buying a nicer one on a family holiday to Turkey for way cheaper than importing one would be, at least here in the UK anyways.

Awesome, I was planning on looking around for one if I visit Turkey in the future.

As someone who has compulsively bought way too many instruments, my favourite to play is probably my baglama, love it to death.

If you don't mind me asking, where did you buy your Baglama? I recently purchased one myself, a beginner instrument but I love it. In the future I might want to upgrade it hence why I'm asking.

There are so many instruments that I love, I can't really pick just one.

For playing the one I currently prefer is the Oud:

For listening the Armenian "Duduk" (which I also play) has always sparked the strangest feelings in me. So maybe that one?

And then every other instrument that exist.

Sutherland is a great actor, but there is truth in that Hayters voice is part of what makes Snake Snake. Then again, this is Big Boss so I'm fine with that. If, however, Sutherland somwhow voiced Solid Snake as well, I don't know that I would feel the same way.

Reading all this reminded me how much I love the insanity that is the Metal Gear story arc.

I enjoyed it, you have a great voice and I like your guitar playing. It's a good song technically as well, not that I know much about crafting a song, but it flows well and the harmonizing was a good touch. The song borders on folk as well, which made me enjoy it more.

Keep it up duder!

Awesome, thank you :)
