The dark underside of internet radio: the frostbitten necrotic vision that is Gary Brolsma.

All hail the disjunctive consequences of user-generated recommendations...

Aren't the others all joke bands, though? Trollkotze certainly...

Definitely, to a degree (the Trollkotze Lego video is quite brutal).

I think what I like in this case isn't that one can sabotage proper lists by mis-tagging Gary Brolsma but the creation of alternate constellations to stumble into. (In this case, my friend who sent it to me was following out initially "real" tags, until the hyperbole of "grim christraping". At that point, it explodes into some other logical arrangement, in which we might see that the sad spectacle of a lipsinking webcam man might just be the missing frostbitten core that outdarks Gehenna.
