Indeed! A fantastic tale about Mr. Rainbow!

So, last night and this at some point today, I was PMing the ever awesome bomb50. We were talking about my new My Chemical Romance CD (I am not emo!) and something came up. After the last track there was a long period of unexplained silence, known as "Track 14". I decided that the whole thing was some kind of iTunes glitch, and dismissed it. While listening to the CD for the second time, Track 14 started playing while I was unaware of it. I figured I'd let iTunes run, so two minutes into the track, a song started playing! I double checked the track listing on the back of the disc, and read it again. It only had thirteen tracks displayed. Could it be MCR pulling a hella cool prank? Well, in the end, I went to Wikipedia to find the name of mysterious Track 14. Turns out it was called "Blood", and next to its name on the article, it said "hidden track". Finding the need to research it more, I discovered that several other bands held a hidden track, whether to avoid controversy, avoid the # 13, or my favorite reason, to just plain scare the hell out of listeners. One of the most well known artists to do this was Weird Al, who's hidden track "Bite me" was ten minutes of silence followed by a sudden outburst of cacophony. After reading about that, I couldn't resist
and wrote a story about it. Its the tale of "Mr. Brown"... No, lets call him "Green". "Black"? Whatever, his name's gonna be Mr. Rainbow.

"Mr. Rainbow has just returned home with a new CD of his favorite artist, Weird Al. He pops in the CD and head bangs to the album that mostly parodies the work of whatever the hell is popular. After its over, he goes to make himself a bowl of instant macaroni and picks up his favorite magazine "CosmoGIRL!" While relaxing and enjoying lovely silence, a sudden burst of cacaphony explodes from his CD player. He was so startled that he spilled macaroni all over Vanessa Hudgen's cover photo and a list of "quick and cute hair tips". Mr. Rainbow also suffered from a severe heart attack. THE END"

Well, what do you guys think? Anyways, if you have anything to say, about your experience with hidden tracks, funny songs, or whatever else, leave a comment, or the ghost of Mr. Rainbow will forever haunt you. Indeed.

I shall now share this video I've found to be totally awesome... You've seen Food Battle 2006... And Food Battle 2007... Now. Smosh presents.... FOOD BATTLE 2008!

New picture. I finally finished it, after roughly two weeks. I bet you're all thinking "Two weeks? For this?" Well guess what? Yes, two weeks. It took a long time to finish all the layers, mmk? I'm pretty much happy with it, but I think my lineart could be better. I'm pretty proud of the fact I got the building in the background though. Go Photoshop!

Indeed! A fantastic tale about Mr. Rainbow!

They do that to get more records sold.

TheMichiyo responds:

Probably, but its ingenious if you ask me. ^_^

That was a great story! *snif snif* Well I like the end about leaving a comment or be haunted. Hidden tracks are so cool. I wish I could find one by Switchfoot so bad. I'm ever awsome? Thats so nice to say ^_^

TheMichiyo responds:

I'm so glad you're touched! TT~TT Mr. Rainbow has spared your soul. If Switchfoot had one, you'd probably have an episode of happiness. Yes, you are awesome. :D

1: As you asked, Guarana is a form of bean that has 4 times the amount of caffeine than cocoa beans.
2: Hm, hidden songs? Sounds fun.
3: Rainbow Man is a wuss from dying from randomized noises. How hasn't he died after all those "scary pictures" that pop up all over the internet?
4: Since you, once again, asked me to do so: Here is my most akward moment involving music.
During 7th Grade Gym class, all the little tykes were supposed to bring in a CD to listen to while running, and we would vote on whose CD we would use. I won the vote, due to previous times where everyone else brought in something involving the "Spice Girls," or something like that... However, the night before, as an incredibly sick joke, my older brother put the song "Banana Phone" as the first song without my knowledge. So, about a minute into the running, up comes: "RING-RING-RING-RING-RING-RING-RING, BANANA PHONE!!!" On the loud speakers.

You read it, now you can't un-read it!

Wait, was I the only one who answered that?
...
...
...
Crap, I was.

TheMichiyo responds:

1. Woot, I'm learning new things everyday!
2. Yes, very fun.
3. Its simple really, Mr. Rainbow stopped using the Internet after surviving a severe stroke caused by such pictures.
4. Lol, the Banana Phone song? That is embarrassing. I'll admit, that song is better than the Spice Girls. What was on the CD in the first place?

Interesting, so most bands have a hidden song? Thats kinda cool.

TheMichiyo responds:

Yeah, it really is.

Oh I feel so bad for ZeDeathbringer. I've never heard the song but I can tell it wasn't pretty. Just to make you people feel better I'll tell you my most akward music moment....ummm....I don't have one. Wait! no no never mind...well I might not have one of those but I've done dumber things thing that.

TheMichiyo responds:

Bomb, you probably have had one, you just won't say it. xD


ZeDeathbringerZeDeathbringer

2008-07-22 00:13:16

Okay...
1: Banana Phone was put there without my knowledge... I think that the first song was supposed to be the "Mortal Kombat" theme... But i'm not entirely sure.
The other songs were a miscellaneous jumble of rock, alternative, and the very occasional techno.

2: Bomb50 has done stupider things. I can tell, she did one in that very comment.

"I've done dumber things thing that." ... Not exactly proper grammar.

No, I'm not ripping on her... I just thought it was funny.

It is still very strange watching two people talk about you while you're not there... It seems to happen alot to me.

TheMichiyo responds:

1. I love the banana phone.... The Mortal Kombat theme huh? And miscellaneous more music.
2. She's not very good at spelling and such. Maybe it is, maybe it isn't funny. O.o How can we know?


ZeDeathbringerZeDeathbringer

2008-07-22 00:16:35

Oh, and I accept her sympathy... Minus the improper grammer.
[just thought i'd throw that in there]

Oh, and I just noticed:
You stated that you could leave a comment about music or "anything else..." so, couldn't a person simply type a single letter and post it, and be saved from the wrath of Mr.Rainbow?
Letters are still apart of "anything else."

TheMichiyo responds:

Mr. Rainbow likes complete sentences. So if you type only one letter, you still get haunted.

Reading the Mr. Rainbow story again, I can't help but imagine Mr. Rainbow sort of looking like a Goomba from Mario Brothers, but wearing a white suit and blue shorts over his red shoes. Why a Goomba would read CosmoGIRL! and eat Macaroni I would never know, that is simply my mental image of him. It still makes the mental image a hell of alot funnier when he suffers from that heart attack. Then, when he's a ghost, he simply becomes a flying goomba that is slightly transparent, while wearing a white suit, now accompanied by white jeans and black shoes. Why black? Cause Mr. Rainbow's feet were sinners and are the reason that he isn't in heaven, and is forced to roam the lands, haunting all who do not post on TheMichiyo's blog post. He must do this to atone for what his feet did in life [he stomped on babies for fun].

Huh, that would make for an entertaining flash video... If anyone knew the backstory of it.

TheMichiyo responds:

Wow, a goomba, really? That does make it more interesting. Asking why he reads CosmoGIRL! and eats instant macaroni is like asking why his name is Mr. Rainbow. It would be an interesting flash video.

Oh, yes, I was pondering about that Track 14 when I bought the MCR CD. I figured it was nothing too important, so I always skipped it when shuffling. Turns out there is a song in there, thanks to you.

Is there a chance of Mr. Rainbow, Chapter 2?

TheMichiyo responds:

I'm so glad I could help. Since you're so interested in Mr. Rainbow, there is a possibility of Chapter two, furthering the adventures of his ghost, and maybe even his adventures before he died. I'm glad you like Mr. Rainbow, his ghost has mercy on your soul.

OMG I HATE SPELLING! why do I need to spell right? You all know what I'm saying...what is it? To make it easy for the rest of you to read?! SCREW IT! Not to mention that our English teacher is a nut case. Grrr...any who no I've never done anything stupid related to music. I've have done stupid things though. Like the time I practically set a flame microwaveable bacon....thats a good story, I should tell that one sometime. Yea I just don't have to attention spand to do things...

TheMichiyo responds:

Okay okay bomb, don't explode. (Lol, bomb pun) Microwaveable bacon, really? That's an interesting story.

I didn't want Mr. Rainbow to have a heart attack. :(
And bomb explained about how I get so much comments.
"He is talented in the fact that he keeps the same post up forever and changes it slightly now and then. Thus if you want to talk to him you have to leave a comment on the same post and the comments just build up and build up... Yea I guess he must have some hidden secret lol."

TheMichiyo responds:

You didn't? Well, Mr. Rainbow's adventures shall be continued, as his ghost's journeys and his life before the Weird Al CD. Wow, that makes so much more sense... I feel enlightened...

Thats a gay ass pun...Sorry I'm just unhappy right now. It is an intresting story I'll make sure to tell you it when school starts up.

TheMichiyo responds:

If you thought that pun was gay, try talking to my dad.


bomb50bomb50

2008-07-22 16:16:30

Hey your have a cool dad.

TheMichiyo responds:

Yes, a cool dad who has a thing for egg puns.

Did you know Mayon8? I'm sorry to hear that happen....

TheMichiyo responds:

Yeah, I knew her. I'd be sorry too if I believed any of it.....

2008-07-24 00:14:00

Nice picture... It's... Wolftastic?
Sorry, couldn't think of any creative descriptions.
Only one critique, though:
It sorta looks like it has no legs. You might want to add at least the beginning of a leg near the bottom of the picture, unless your true intention is to make it a legless snake-wolf. On second thought, a snake-wolf would be pretty kickass. Next picture idea? SNAKEWOLF!!

TheMichiyo responds:

Yeah, I thought it looked a little legless too, but you know what? Snake-wolves sound awesome, they could be bred as stealth assassins!


topdog2007topdog2007

2008-07-24 00:18:47

yeah i guess you got a point there

TheMichiyo responds:

On what? About "Mayon"?

2008-07-24 00:50:12

No offense but the wolf looks ugly. But I like the moon. Wait. Wolves are supposed to be kind of ugly. Well, the drawing is still good.

Oh, I forgot to mention something.......21st comment!!!!!!!!!

TheMichiyo responds:

Yeah, its not that great of a wolf. Like ZeDeathBringer said, its more of a wolf snake.


topdog2007topdog2007

2008-07-24 01:26:18

yeah

TheMichiyo responds:

Yeah, people do this kinda thing on the web all the time. They want attention so they say they committed suicide or died or whatever, and build a new reputation on another account. None of the story I heard made any sense to me, so yeah....

Hey, its not your fault. Go easy on yourself, okay?

2008-07-24 19:08:48

I got to level 4! WOO HOO!

On the Blockhead game? Dude you are like some kind of genius. Or just reaaaally patient.

The strangest song I heard was from the UFO ending in Silent Hill 3, I heard and screamed "What the Hell?!" but at the same time I was laughing. Anyway thats a somewhat odd and freaky picture, but it looks like the one Bomb50 had.

TheMichiyo responds:

Lol, I love "WTF" moments where I end up laughing with my sister, dad, friends, etc. Yeah, it was inspired by Bomb's. Mine looks like a snake though.


Warboy1945Warboy1945

2008-07-24 21:26:58

By the way, who on Earth is "Mr. Rainbow"?

TheMichiyo responds:

Mr. Rainbow is a fictional character in the short story series above, about him finding himself in near dead situations caused by common occurences. The second one will be published eventually.


Warboy1945Warboy1945

2008-07-25 00:03:00

It looks like that "If you piss me off, I kill you!" kind of thing

TheMichiyo responds:

Well, flightless ground wolves do tend to be deadly. xD

Hate to get back on topic, but I heard a hidden track on my Alice In Chains album (Dirt) called Iron Gland. It's only about 43 seconds long and sounds like a parody of Iron Man with a "red rum!" call at the end. Alice In Chains: Stoner/Acid rock for your pleasure.

TheMichiyo responds:

Sweet, thats awesome! I'll look into listening to the album.


Nemesis15Nemesis15

2008-07-25 16:59:30

Di you know my brother, KingofFlesh?

TheMichiyo responds:

A little. I comment on his page and stuff, he's a pretty cool guy, it seems, when he's not depressed.

It looks pretty cool, but I have to say that the artwork looks pretty jagged like, for future artworks try and smooth out drawings, but thats my opinion

TheMichiyo responds:

Yeah, my lineart looks pretty bad because of my scanner and the type of pen I'm currently using. I'm planning on getting new pens soon, so maybe that can help a little.


bomb50bomb50

2008-07-25 18:41:45

It's not crap you dumbass. Why can't you get that through your head? Your art is not crap. If you think it's crap then no one will take time to look at all the goodness. So stop saying its crap when its fucking AWSOME! ok? I mean come on....it's better then anything I could dowork on those hands though ok? Other wise good work biffle.

TheMichiyo responds:

Okay okay, I'll stop calling it crap. I just don't think it looks like the kind of work that took two weeks. Sooo.... Yeah. Thank you. :D

guy on left is apart of the akotski, middle guy is ichigo, and don't know who the girl is.

TheMichiyo responds:

Actually, all three are part of the Akatsuki. Pein, who you said was Ichigo (IDK, maybe he could be both) is the Akatsuki leader, from the more recent manga chapters, and the girl is Konan, who's like, Akatsuki leader's assistant or something whack job like that, so yeah. :D If he was Ichigo though, I'd draw Orihime too.


NacaleNacale

2008-07-25 19:43:06

Who wouldn't know this stuff? The three of them are all of the "akotske" as he said. None of which are from Bleach, although still a awesome show.
But hey, still came out pretty good, huh. Just saying hi! ^-^

TheMichiyo responds:

*ding ding ding* You win! Akatsuki rulez! I mostly drew 'em cause of a fanfiction I'm writing, and stuff. Thanks, I'm glad you like it. Hi!


NacaleNacale

2008-07-25 19:44:02

Oh yeah, and I responded to your comment...go see it. (on my page of course)

TheMichiyo responds:

I saw it. I just posted again now. (/^_\\)

I haven't left a comment here in a while, and I'm bored.
So, how have you been? I've been good, thanks for asking. :P

And great picture. Their hands are a little weird but it's still great. I'm guessing you made that in photoshop, since you wrote "Go Photoshop!" and the background is too realistic to have been drawn. It's still great though. I suck at using Photoshop and I would never have made anything as good as that. No matter how much time I had. And what is with the person on the right? He/she doesn't appear to have a face. It bothers me not knowing why. Tell me!!

TheMichiyo responds:

I've been doing good. Thanks, I'm glad you like it. I'm not very good at hands. It was colored and the background was added in Photoshop, but the line art was done by hand. Oh, you mean Tobi? Yeah, that's Tobi from Naruto, he's wearing a mask. Most people say it resembles a basketball. Thanks for the comment, I'm getting soooo close to getting forty comments. ^_^


thingus002thingus002

2008-07-26 04:30:23

Yeah, I think Photoshop is the best, even though my school uses Corel Draw.

One thing I thought was confusing are the hands. Not Tobi's though, they're fine. Just the guy's and girl's hands.

TheMichiyo responds:

Yeah, I guess they are confusing. I tried to make it less confusing by varying the skintones between the girl and the boy, but I guess that didn't work very well.
