I always noticed this in Screamin' on Humanoid City Live cd/dvd... Right at the transition from "but it hurts so/yeah it hurts so" to "top of the world/top of the world," there's a lag. Today on my drive home from work I replayed the part several times, listening and discerning for who is responsible for the lag. Just one member? Or the whole band?

Gustav's rhythm does not change in the least, so it's not him. (p.s. Gustav's part the entire song is really amazing, btw) And Georg's bass is solid like normal. Then who?

The twins!

So, the last line of the section Bill sings is "yeah, it hurts so." He sang that part a little delayed. Sometimes he does that to make it emotional sounding. But he may only do that on a word or syllable or two... In contrast, Bill's entire line here is delayed, every word.

Then Gustav's lovely tom-tom boom bada boom part. The moment in the next section where the "top of the world's" begin, Tom comes in a fraction too late! The rest of his notes are perfectly in time though.

So my conclusion is that Bill was late for whatever reason, and Tom was paying attention to Bill and not to the more reliable (sorry, Bill) Gustav and Georg... and so Tom was late too. Both twins being late contributes to the sensation of a short lag. I think their little twin delay is cute!

It happens from 2:42 to 2:48. When you watch the video, it's less noticeable -- but if you close your eyes and just listen, the lag is easily perceptible.

I love how well TH does live! They really do well live, don't get me wrong. Playing live is hard -- trust me, I know. Out of all the HCL cd/dvd, this lag in Screamin' is one of the more obvious mistakes (not counting all of Bill's flat notes). The other one is the last word in "Noise," which is sang too early (again, Bill) but at least it's in tune! :D It sucks when the last note in a song is out of tune. So there's always a silver lining! Bill, it's ok -- have a cookie. I'm not mad at you.

You know how sometimes you can unplug your headphone jack slightly and it removes the center, foreground sounds? You know, in a sound field.... the sounds in the center are usually the main vocals and effects. That's the foreground. And the other background effects are quieter and more "on the sides" and not in the center of the sound field? It's almost like those background sounds are "hidden" because they're simply not as prominent as the foreground sounds. There are secrets hiding in the background.

I did this with Tokio Hotel's Humanoid today. I discovered some neat things.

I miss the dreads, which oddly weren't around long enough for me to even get used to them. Then poof! They were gone.

And this was funny.

If Bill strutted into the room looking like that, I would abandon my entire life for him if he'd ask me to.

Plus the "toyboy" interview, because that popped up in suggestions. Don't you just love how youtube gets you watching more and more videos, without ever stopping? Anyway, Bill looks intrigued and highly entertained at the thought. Wouldn't that be cute? The twins with older women? I think that would be cute. I read somewhere about their horoscopes (as much faith as I put in horoscopes, lol, but the ideas from which are cute to think about) that the twins would do better with older women anyway. Also that they like to be dominated.

Bill is so beautiful. When the picture got clear of Bill on that motorbike, I screamed, "That's so BEAUTIFUL!" and my brother came to see what was wrong with me. Nothing was wrong with me, only that Bill is so beautiful and inspires energetic reactions in me. ...And I noticed how many weird lip things Bill does. He rolls his lips inside his mouth so much.

Humanoid odd remix by adesadi

Or here, if the player doesn't show up.

My brother described it as "too much is happening."

This is some seriously cool stuff. One is just a exaggerated skeletal frame suspended over a body, and another where it's prisms crowding over each other like an angular mob. There's another that looks really futuristic in shape, but natural and earthy because it's made of bamboo or some other natural fiber. There's another that makes the model look like a moth, framing thin plastic strips (like what comes out of a tape cassette) into wings, and a mask made of black feathers that have little antennae.

So basically, visual candy. These are really intricate; pieces of art.

Perfect performances. I have so much love for them right now.

Tom's english is really sounding fluent! He's talking a lot!

Bill said a line from Monsun o koete, and they didn't understand him.

Obrigado is NOT arigato. Wrong language, guys!

Gustav, do you know what sayonara means?
"Aufwiedersehen...oh, goodbye."

Wie geht's
How's it goin

Bill: Practice, practice... Do it every day...
Tom: The truth is; I do it every morning for two hours.
*Georg groans*
Tom: I can do it for you, maybe.
Bill: You should not do it.
(I have no idea what they're talking about doing.)

I'm so sick of the one lady who keeps going "mm" "mm" "mm" "mm." Shut up!
