  • Biography Countless natives gathered around Pride Rock in Africa, where a wise Priest, Rafiki, presented me, the newborn son of the King and Queen, Mufasa and Sarabi. The only resident of the Pride Lands who is displeased with my birth is my father's younger brother, Scar, who seeks the throne for himself. As I grew up, I was taught everything about the Pride Lands, including the neighboring Outlands, ruled by ruthless militia and off limits for residents of the Pride Lands. However, I turned out to be a colorful prankster who would rather play with my best friend, Nala, than listen to the lessons my father's adviser, Zazu, attempted to teach me. When Scar told me about a glutton graveyard in the Outlands, Nala and I outsmarted Zazu and ventured out into the Outlands where we came upon three militia men, Shenzi, Banzai and Ed, who tried to kill us in the ensuing chase. My dad arrived to rescue us in time, after being alerted by Zazu, and taught me an emotional lesson in bravery and valor.

    Meanwhile, Scar was plotting with the militia to kill both me and my dad, and to take over the Pride Lands. On Scar's orders, the militia ignited a procession of tanks in a gorge where I was because I was told to stay there by Scar. Scar then rushed to inform my dad who managed to save me. But as my dad asked for Scar's assistance when he attempted to climb out of the gorge, Scar betrayed him and deliberately threw him back, where my dad was killed by the procession of tanks. I later found my father's lifeless corpse in the middle of the gorge.

    Scar arrived and tricked me into thinking that it was me who was responsible for my dad's death, as it was my presence that caused my dad to come save me. Due to the shame of such an act, he encouraged me to leave the Pride Lands and never return. I immediately turned and ran away, while at the same time, Scar ordered the militia to follow and kill me. In the subsequent chase, I managed to escape.

  1. Final Fantasy III (Finish Song or Risk Being Cut)

      What? Do you mean Crystal Room, or did something weird happen here in the last few days? Get it shared!! I wanna hear it!
  2. OC ReMix Reddit AMA planned for Tue., Feb. 23rd!

    I like that. Whenever you see someone doing an AMAA it's like why even bother. Glad you got the stones to answer everything. Tho not sure what people would ask that you'd not want to answer anyway, haha.  How is it unpaid, doesn't Reddit know you guys are as notable as other celebrities?
  3. OC ReMix Reddit AMA planned for Tue., Feb. 23rd!

    How much do AMAs pay?  Is it gonna be an AMA or an AMAA? 
  4. Final Fantasy III (Finish Song or Risk Being Cut)

    It needs some PIZAZZ!! It's too straightforward! Also please share the WIPs in private so that everybody's not all up ons listening to it before it's even released   That bass sound is weird too, man. Weird. Not that it needs to be more prominent, but I'm not diggin' the sound as a bass sound. You oughta try switching things up a bit with the arrangement cause right now it's following a bit closely to the original
  5. The Most Brazen Copyright Infringement I've seen

    The name was because we give old clocks a do-over.  Makes more sense than what you people do on this website.  As a counter-claim, might I suggest you change your site's name to NothingToDoWithClocks NothingToDoWithRemixes, a fan arrangement community
  6. The Most Brazen Copyright Infringement I've seen

    Hey, have you guys heard of my new business OverClocked ReMix? It's a pretty damn big thing over in Europe.  We specialize in mixing paint for use on old clocks. 
  7. Spiritual successor to Banjo-Kazooie, Yooka-Laylee

    I don't even remember if I posted in this thread before, but wanted to say... I fought it, and fought it, and fought it, internally.. but now I am mentally ready to accept a spiritual successor to Banjo Kazooie. IT WON'T EVER REPLACE OR BE AS GOOD AS BANJO KAZOOIE, but it'll be its own thing. 
  8. best. song. ever.

    This is always gonna be the best song ever. It's in the lyrics... you can't really argue with it    
  9. Undertale Remix Album

    The thing about albums is that if you really like a game and its soundtrack, you should commit to doing the album for that game.. not asking if people are interested and posting a few different album ideas, etc etc... because people will start to see a pattern of stuff not happening and they'll question the validity of the project you eventually decide on.. what's to stop you from being like "Undertale is old hat now.. hey this new game just dropped, wow this song is cool! hey you guys wanna do an album for this!?" I also disagree on choosing something popular to do 'just because'. Even if you choose something that isn't really popular, you can still find people who care about that music as much as you should (if you're doing an album for it).. pick something that really appeals to you on a personal level, and follow it through. That's more important than gauging interest in a bunch of things and deciding to do what other people like the most.  but what do I know, I'm crazy!
  10. I totally haven't downloaded your stems yet so please keep them active for now! I got sidetracked with unpleasant things. 
  11. BadAss: Volume 3

    Next Monday is World Hate Day then?  I don't think that's a good idea though. When has the album ever really been about hating the world? I get it, we remixed boss themes, doesn't mean we have to be maniacs. 
  12. 1001 Knights - A people-positive art anthology (with music by me!)

    That sounded really cool, it's awesome to hear more of a folk-ish direction and it seems fitting for a fantasy world. 0:48 of that last one reminded me of Chrono! Haha!
  13. Final Fantasy III (Finish Song or Risk Being Cut)

    WELCOME ABOARD!! Glad to see someone who jumped on FF8 also jump on over here.
  14. Mix Challenge on KVR Audio

    Original songs are hard to make, then sending out the stems for it is basically giving away the copyright or ownership of the song... and not being able to monetize it? Not really something I'd contribute to, or have the time to mix someone else's song for free () but it's a cool idea anyway! 
  15. BadAss: Volume 3

    What better way to celebrate Valentine's Day, than with BadButt 3: The Album!
