Dan Bull Memorial [chat]

RiemannLivesRiemannLives Registered User regular
edited May 2021 in Debate and/or Discourse
He's not dead I just have a super old OP in a txt file.

Dan Bull is an absurdly talented lyricist / rapper / musician who has kept up such an insane pace of creation over so many years that his body of work is nothing short and incredible. Because most of his work is based off of videogames it is easy to overlook him as just a parodist. But there is a lot more to it. As he has been cranking out multiple tracks every month for years there are of course hits and misses so I have compiled here some of what I think are the hits. There are a lot more.

https://www.youtube.com/danbull/videos

Some of his best
Dan being silly
I just quite like these
Dan on Epic Rap Battles of History


EDIT, in response to a request for recommendations of science / history ish youtube content I posted the following. Putting it here so it's easier to find.

My highest recommendations from the list below are Yale Courses and Oriental Institute.

also, not on youtube but the back catalog for the BBC radio show In Our Time is massive and has a lot of good content. Each show is usually an hour talk with some experts on a given subject. Could be history, science, art, philosophy, literature etc...

    The California Highway Patrol said it arrested a man seen riding in the back seat of a Tesla Model 3 that had no one in the driver's seat. Param Sharma, 25, was arrested "and booked into Santa Rita Jail" on counts of reckless driving and disobeying an officer [...]

    Sharma spent a night locked up, and he "committed the same crime shortly after being released from jail"

    When asked if he purchased a new Tesla after the previous one was impounded he said, "Yeah, I'm rich as [expletive]. I'm very rich."

    Sharma this week also posted videos on Instagram of himself in the back seat of a moving Tesla with an empty driver's seat. In one video, he is reading an article about himself titled "Man seen riding in the back seat of Tesla with no driver." In a video posted yesterday, he says, "I just got out of jail. I already got [another] Tesla. You feel me, I'm rich like that. I came out of the pandemic a fucking millionaire, bitch."

    It's like, I would be 99% sure he was just trolling the reporter if he wasn't already arrested twice for riding in the back seat and he hadn't already bought multiple cars to keep doing it after the first got impounded.

    There's commitment to the bit and then there's spending over $100,000 to commit multiple felonies.

    It sounded 100% like a lady I used to live next to when she'd go off on a manic episode. The pressured speech, the serial, grandiose, clearly false claims.

    I mean you could emulate that to troll but nobody has this much dedication to trolling.

    I have a close friend with bipolar disorder who, on a good day, has rapid pressured speech and tends to skip and/or conflate words. Not to mention a tendency to embellish the truth.

    Terry Davis ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terry_A._Davis ) was probably around that guys age when his manic episodes started. After he could no longer work he wrote a custom, working 64 bit operating system from scratch that let him talk to god. As he got worse and stopped taking meds he ended up ranting racist slurs on youtube and twitch (being egged on by channers and the like) between bouts of talking to god based on various programs he had written for his OS before ending up homeless and dying in 2018.

    Yeah. The psychiatrist quit like a week after and there was no follow up. I'm entering actual therapy after a year waitlist. I'll ask them if it's legit.

    But the psychiatrist spent more time making sure I wasn't going to give her covid than address my extreme stress and then she quit like a week later. So shrug. It didn't seem like she was on her A game. But literally it said that I spoke rapidly and that I could be bipolar.

    Thanks for listening! It was just a kind of funny time because everyone was panicked about corona even the people designated to like help you through times of stress.

    Also I was talking fast because I was very stressed and nervous and I wasn't talking THAT fast its just that it was English and she really didn't want to speak in English in the first place. She also prescribed me insane amounts of antidepressants that I did not take at that level because it was 100% cardiotoxic. She was just like take them whenever you need them! Two times a day, four times a day. Up to you!

    But citalopram has a high end before qt elongation is a risk and I was already at that limit.

    It’s downright hilarious, starting at the moment you meet him on the Normandy. His voice actor is just so bright and exuberant, it’s nearly Ben Stiller in Simple Jack. Not even remotely like a grizzled space marine, so I can’t help but laugh when he goes down with all the opposition of a wilted salad.

    Bonus points if Shepard is only referred to as "Commander Shepard" after that and great effort is taken to avoid pronouns.
