Pretty Lights/Streets of Rage

10 11 2010

I was listening to this electronic/dubstep/electro/techno/mashup whatever-you-want-to-call-it band and it instantly reminded me of an old video game called Streets of Rage. I was thinking of doing a painting based upon the game. The whole concept of being in a big city that is full of evil, and banding together with a few friends to stop the corruption with little more than…your fists. Just from that old Genesis game i could do a whole series of paintings without lacking conceptual inspiration.

Here is the band.

Here is the game (please ignore the SOR2 and 3 music)

I was starting to run out of visual art that I was inspired by and so I thought I would expand my horizons a bit. My comrade Megan pointed out the video after I put the song on a mix cd for her. I was instantly blown away. It is unfortunate that I didn’t find it before halloween. Ultimately though, anytime is a good time for a dynamically gory/cute video.
