These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
"Cubicle". We get it. Corporations and desk jobs are soul-destroying machines of doom that will suck you in, spit you out and leave you as a shell for the rest of your days. Please stop slamming us over the head with it, some of us have to work.
Crazy Awesome: Both of them, but especially ZooG. His exploits include:
Calling John Howard (Australia's former PM) a 'complete cunt' in an interview.
Dyeing his mohawk pink and managing to still carry it off.
Making a video about Angelspit's contest to find a new videographer that included him killing the old videographer and ending it with 'I need a knife, a fork and an oven built for one. Happy new fucking year!'
In one interview, he decided he didn't want to just stand still and talk, so he got a trolley used for pulling around equipment, got the interviewer to sit on it and randomly pulled him around while being interviewed.
Combichrist raised the possibility of them playing a show or two together. ZooG's response was, in essence, 'Fuck that, we'll have a rock duel to the death!' And that's what they did (though nobody died, obviously).
"God made me a cannibal to fix problems like you", anyone?
DestroyX's life in a nutshell. She and ZooG were running the biggest zine distro in the Southern Hemisphere before they started Angelspit (and she was about 18 at the time). Since then, she's moved to London, she and ZooG have released nine CD's in eight or so years, she started her own makeup and fashion line, A is for Arsenic, and she somehow balances tours, music and design all at once. The woman's a bloody genius.
Crowning Moment of Funny: From the development diary for "Hot Mess": "I recorded the vocals while I was drunk. It only took me two takes… because I think I passed out."
ZooG and Brian from the Gothsicles created 'Hardcore Pong', a series that's meant to be about video games, but is instead the two of them getting drunk and rambling about everything. Hilarity Ensues again and again and again.
Ear Worm: This troper has no idea how they do it, but just about every song Angelspit has ever done is one of these. Special mentions go to:
"Vena cava! Heart starter! The doctor is IN! SANE!"
"Crash dolly, burn with me. Like on TV. Get dirty, boy on me. So lust worthy."
"I was on the lookout for the wolf, the wolf, the wolf, the wolf, I was on the lookout for the, I was on the lookout for the wolf, the wolf, the wolf, the wolf, I was on the lookout..."
"Crash made! Built to fade! Fuck! The! Revolution!"
"Grind, head down, tail up, define your purpose, till you bleed and you are raw to the bone."
"I gave birth to the 21st century!" and "All the way, all the way, all the way to twenty6hundred!"
Even the remixes are like this. "Paradise breeds, paradise breeds, paradise breeds, paradise breeds, paradise breeds..."
"One! Two three five eight, who do we decapitate?"
"I like to collect... pretty dead boys! I like to make... pretty dead boys!"
Ensemble Darkhorse: "Defibrillator", from Hello My Name Is. It's become an insanely popular song, mainly because it manages to combine two genres nobody in their right mind would put together (pop and industrial) and it works.
Nightmare Fuel: The video for "Vena Cava", the casual references to cannibalism, torture and murder...
"Elixir" is a Take That to the beauty industry. Throughout the song, one can hear screaming at certain points- not loud screaming, but someone screaming in pain. Once one connects this with the lyrics, which reference plastic surgery and painful beauty treatments... yeah.
"Grind" has elements of this- the lyrics are bloody creepy, and DestroyX's voice sounds quite robotic, almost like GLaDOS as she sings it.
Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: "Girl Poison" is a song about how young girls are encountering sexuality and losing their innocence at ridiculously young ages because that is what society/the media want, which they shouldn't be forced to.
