ITT: Post songs that are heavily inspired by music of an earlier era.
Doesn't necessarily have to be songs made this decade. Video related.
There's been a funded kickstarter for a River City Ransom sequel, in case you didn't already know.
I hope Jake Kaufman does the music for that one too.

Venture Bros fans - The band was Doc Hammer and his ex-wife Lisa Hammer (Triana Morpheus)

Browsing through the variety of old "military quotes" pics, I came across one that depicted a shot-up car, with the quote, "a car door is not cover; concrete is cover."
I was hoping someone had a better resolution of the scene(s) depicting the two terrorists meeting their end at the hand of "God" from this clip from "Navy SEALS," with the quote, "concrete is not cover."
Can anyone help?
Like, widescreen or something, since the series of military quote pics that were shared here, were a uniform height (short) & width (long).
More clips from "Navy SEALS" because Charlie Sheen is still cool.
If they're all using MP5SD3s, then why do they all sound different..?
Is this the raid were they were too embarrassed to say they ran out of ammo, so they called in an evac saying they had like 8 wounded?
Since I just discovered the power of the Camera Raw plug-in in Photoshop, let's have another photography thread!
Rules: Only your own work, or that of people you personally know, if you REALLY have to share their stuff.
DSLR preferred, but phone stuff allowed.
If possible, it would be welcome to give details about the photo, such as camera used, lens used, focal length, ISO, and aperture.
Starting off with a newly-edited one.
Camera is my baby, the Nikon D5100, using a Nikon kit 55-200 at 200mm, ISO of 200, aperture of 5.6, and an exposure time of 1/50.
i shot all of these on Fuji Neopan 400 on a shitty old Nikon FE-10 my aunt gave me.
the light meter on the camera shits the bed half the time, and i've been thinking of getting a newer, better film SLR in the near future.
Where are you going for developing?
I haven't shot shit since Capitol Hill 1 hr closed. I got rolls and rolls of 35mm and some 120 that needs developed.
there's a place up in queen anne called Panda Photographic. a guy from glaser's gave me a recommendation after showing off his space-age AR to me.
Well, damn, Ukraine. Now I want to join your army.
FOR DUTY BROTHERS!
Is that the Ukrainian version of banging on the ceiling to get someone to shut the fuck up?
It depends on heating system standards, which are common almost everywhere in post-USSR.
Everything Ukraine have had since 19th century is copied from Russia so if you see something in this ads you can find it in Russia too, except that the state system isn't totally privatized at the moment. By the word "privatized" I mean "corrupted to the point of being property of companies and private persons", if you know what this implies.
I figured it was the neighbor who fixes the radiator by banging on it.
MY GOD THERE'S BLOOD EVERYWHERE!
Here's a thing I made in Fract OSC.
Never seen this thread before.
Sad as shit
How about a Metal sentimental song?
Skid Row did it first.
Also, a personally sentimental song.
The automation implied in the OP (Humans Need Not Apply) is much more advanced and will probably not be that prevalent for at least a decade. But it probably will occur when automation becomes cheaper, more widespread and economically advantageous instead of hiring people.
Between the time of redundant and obsolete people significantly competing with automation and a bright, gleaming, post-scarcity Star Trek future, the probable interim will be grim. Government will continue to support (and even subsidize) whatever large industries and corporations do, no matter how detrimental to society it may be. The suggested Guaranteed Minimum Income (GMI) system of social welfare that guarantees all citizens or families have an income sufficient to live on, provided they meet certain conditions... is a pipe dream that the capitalists in government and their media pundits will fight like wildcats to prevent.
The dream of a jobless future where automation does the majority of labor and people either work very short hours or not at all and have their livings subsidized by automated industry is fraught with certain societal problems stemming from the old adage, "The Devil will find tasks for idle hands to do". Meaning boredom, vice, want, and social upheavals from idle people with a bloated sense of entitlement demanding more than their low ration of welfare money.
47% Of All Jobs Will Be Automated By 2034, And 'No Government Is Prepared' Says Economist
Posted: 17/01/2014 http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2014/01/17/rise-of-the-machines-economist_n_4616931.html
Almost half of all jobs could be automated by computers within two decades and "no government is prepared" for the tsunami of social change that will follow, according to the Economist.
The magazine's 2014 analysis of the impact of technology paints a pretty bleak picture of the future.
It says that while innovation (aka "the elixir of progress") has always resulted in job losses, usually economies have eventually been able to develop new roles for those workers to compensate, such as in the industrial revolution of the 19th century, or the food production revolution of the 20th century.
But the pace of change this time around appears to be unprecedented, its leader column claims. And the result is a huge amount of uncertainty for both developed and under-developed economies about where the next 'lost generation' is going to find work.
It quotes a 2013 Oxford Martin School study that estimates 47% of all jobs could be automated in the next 20 years:
"Our ﬁndings thus imply that as technology races ahead, low-skill workers will reallocate to tasks that are non-susceptible to computerisation – i.e., tasks requiring creative and social intelligence. For workers to win the race, however, they will have to acquire creative and social skills," that study says.
The Economist also points out that current unemployment levels are startlingly high, but that "this wave of technological disruption to the job market has only just started".
Specifically the Economist points to new tech like driverless cars, improved household gadgets, faster and more efficient online communications and 'big data' analysis to areas that humans are quickly being superceded. And while new start-ups are raising billions, they employ few people - Instagram, sold to Facebook in 2012 for $1 billion, employed just 30 people at the time.
Those conclusions are echoed elsewhere. Another study ('Are You Ready For #GenMobile?'), to be released in full on 21 January by Aruba Networks, points out just how fast traditional working models are changing.
It says that 72% of British people now believe they work more efficiently at home, and that 63% need a WiFi network to complete their tasks - not bad for a technology that was barely standardised 10 years ago.
Meanwhile in 'The Second Machine Age', out this week, Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew McAfee argue workers are under unprecedented pressure by the automation of skilled and unskilled jobs.
In a recent Salon interview Brynjolfsson said: "technology has always been destroying jobs, and it’s always been creating jobs, and it’s been roughly a wash for the last 200 years. But starting in the 1990s the employment to population ration really started plummeting and it’s now fallen off a cliff and not getting back up. We think that it should be the focus of policymakers right now to figure out how to address that."
The BBC also produced a report earlier this month which claimed, in stark tones, that "the robots are coming to steal our jobs".
"AI's are embedded in the fabric of our everyday lives," head of AI at Singularity University, Neil Jacobstein, told the Beeb.
"They are used in medicine, in law, in design and throughout automotive industry."
That report too pointed out the change will affect jobs of all kinds - from a Chinese factory Hon Hai which has announced plans to replace 500,000 workers with robots in three years, to lawyers, surgeons and public sector workers.
Opinions remain divided on the impact and future of technological innovation on the jobs market, and wealth inequality. The Economist leader argues that governments have a responsibility to innovate in education, taxation and embracing progress, though the solutions are by no means obvious or without uncertainty.
If only we could automate the process of making and implementing those political decisions - now that would really be something.

Literally Just watched Beyond the Black Rainbow.
It's pretty cool. The long shots and arthouse style adds a certain amount of tension, but it is slightly uncomfortable at times. The story itself is very easy to make fun of once you've actually watched the whole thing, but in the moment it's quite absorbing.
ಠ/10; would recommend to anyone.
I saw it and enjoyed it, but I wouldn't say it's for everyone. The 2 guys drinking in the woods near the end reminded me of so many drunken campouts with my cousin, but since that was my favorite part maybe I didn't like the whole movie as much as I remember.
I'm just going to need a minute to process this.
It was delayed to sometime next year because of ISIS.
Apparently there were jokes in the new season that because of ISIS would make people too bootybaked.
Friend of mine that saw the episode thought it was a reasonable decision and it probably was from a ratings perspective.
Danger 5 is probably my favorite show. So glad it's getting a second season.
