This man can sing anything!

My friend put me on to this fellow yesterday. Nick Pitera is a singer, and a bloody good one, with a vocal range that is nothing short of insane. He is capable of tackling both male and female vocals with ease, with a quality of singing that I honestly did not expect. He seems mostly to perform covers of well-loved and instantly recognizable songs. The talent on display here is just so amazing I had to share it. Here are just a couple of his videos that particularly impressed me.

Pitera has done many more song covers aside from these that are well worth checking out! You can find them at his YouTube channel.

The Video Game Rock Medley!

I’ve safely returned home from wonderful Japan, and am in the process of unpacking my things. I intend to continue my writing about Japan soon, but I just had to share this amazing music video with you guys. This fellow FreddeGredde has put together a ten minute long medley, comprised of many of video gaming’s most iconic musical themes. The impressive part is that he performs almost every part himself and even edited together this snappy video. Nice work mate!

Soaking in Kyoto!


It’s day ten here in Kyoto, four days since typing my last blog entry on this ancient computer at the Econo-Inn. I’ve spent the last couple of days doing a lot of walking and exploring, and given that my checklist of places to visit is getting quite short, I’ve opted to make this a day to catch up on my writing. I’ll probably go out to the Ninja Cafe in Sanjo later on tonight, but I figured I should get at least one more day’s account written. So let’s continue on shall we? Read the rest of this entry »

Kicking back in Kyoto!

Back in Kyoto at last!

It’s my sixth day here in Japan, with ten more before I come home. The cooler days and occasional wet weather have slowed the opening of the cherry blossoms a little, but it has been forecast that from the 9th of April onwards they should be blossoming in full. As a result I’ve mostly favored visiting places that aren’t famous for being prime Hanami spots and have been enjoying relaxed strolls around the streets. I’ve been taking rough notes on my activities for each each day so I can hopefully keep up with writing about them this time (regular computer access allowing). Here’s the rundown on my first two days in Japan!
