Clean Bandit - Rihanna ft. Noonie Bao

I had reservations about this song because the cartoon beat sounds like a loop taken from the Bubblegloop Swamp level of Banjo Kazooie and the violin sounds like something out of a black and white Russian film about the struggles of winter in Siberia. 64 more words

In Defense of Connected Worlds

I’ll start with an opinion that, based on some reaction from Summer Games Done Quick 2014, seems to be fairly unpopular: I like Banjo-Tooie better than Banjo-Kazooie. 826 more words
