Piano Squall (thanks TangerineDream) - Piano Squall is a self-described "Game and Anime Pianist." That's the piano equivalent of a airliner pilot calling himself the "Crash and Die Pilot" and is in the same musical league as a Yoko Ono cover band. Why anyone would want to devote their musical career to covering the most inane music possible is a question that can only be answered by reading the many gaming-related forums on the Internet. Some people are actually dumb enough to buy this crap.

I know that the price is unusually low for a new CD, especially when all of the tracks are licensed, but music has never been about profit to me.

I wonder if he was trained using the Naruto method. What sort of track-listing can we expect to find on this instant classic? Let's have a look!

Are you concerned that you may be a character trapped in a Tom Waits song? Be smart and learn the warning signs before it's too late. Also, it's too late. It has always been too late.
I'm haunted by a recurring vision of a skeleton flipping me off. To avoid seeing this terrifying image in bumper sticker form, I pay someone with a blank bumper to drive in front of me at all times.
Awful Links of the Day spotlights the worst and weirdest websites on the internet. And we're not talking "weird" in a good way either.
