Over-dubs?

Super late, but…
Over-dubs are additional recordings that play over other recordings.
For example, most guitarists will record their guitar track, then a second identical one that plays over the original to create a bigger sound. Vocals, drums, ect. are done the same way. It’s called over-dubbing and the additional tracks are called over-dubs.
That Queen song has a ton of different vocal tracks going on is what it’s saying.

I wonder if he still got the same name, some 11 years on…

“Gift” in German means “poison”.

“Mist” in German means “Manure”, which is why when a perfume company (whose name I forget) tried selling their new “Mist” perfume it didn’t sell so well in Germany.

SethBling technically has a tied world-record speedrun of Dragster. He played it on an Atari 2600 Emulator he made in minecraft, but that’s technically legal.

James Blunt is also quite good on twitter…

James Blunt’s best Twitter comebacks - The Graham Norton Show 2017: Preview - BBC One - 90 second video at the BBC

 

That, of course, is when he’s not stalking people on the internet…

Rasputin was extremely difficult to kill, he was poisoned, shot, beat up, chained up and thrown into a river. His cause of death was drowning.

I’m just a simple man trying to make my way in the universe.

Nah, this isn’t because he was difficult to kill, but because his executioners were nerds with no experience. They shot him in the wrong spot, the poison was too low a dosage, etc.

The idea that he was just comically difficult to kill increasingly to the confusion of his assassins is much funnier though. (Sorry Rasputin for finding your extremely painful death funny but it was a century ago)

I’m not surprised. These guys had never killed before, so they were bound to fuck up. Besides, there’re no courses on how to kill a person.

Much to my dismay, I can’t find any WikiHow articles on how to commit murder.
