It's that time of year again. Where I'm at, in Northern Virginia, it's been colder, wetter, and basically crappier than recent falls in my memory. That, compounded with the recent sniper thing, has made this season very oppressive and slow and oogy. Thankfully, the rain let up a bit tonight for Halloween, and we've got a big-bowl-of-candy ready for da kids. I have a rule though: I only buy candy that I myself would eat. That way, when it turns out that only four or five trick-or-treaters stop by to deplete my supply, I have a healthy reserve afterwards. Another good strategy I've seen is to buy a boatload of something you don't like (for me, Good & Plenty's) and layer that on top, as a preliminary 'shield' of sorts. Works like a gem. But I digress - Ghetto Lee Lewis aka Thomas Nelson submitted this a while back and you may have heard it elsewhere, but we both thought it'd be totally appropriate for a Halloween debut on OCR - our first ReMix of the classic NES adaptation of Friday the 13th. Yes, the legendary 8-bit pixelized incarnation of the unstoppable (and recently, with 'Jason X', hilarious) Jason and the exploits of those randy and obnoxious teens he's constantly pestered by. Can you really blame the guy? If you were trapped in a string of B movies with C acting and had only your girth and a hockey mask and immortality to defend yourself, wouldn't YOU lash out at the world too? Think about it . . . Ghetto Lee's put together an interesting, movie-quote laden arrangement that's essentially a two-parter - first we get the spookier piano and strings rendition (questionable violin in the upper register but otherwise good and different), segueing into a technotrance section of about equal length with a quote and deep church bell. The quotes, btw, are mixed in well and add to the ambience of the piece - you can't make an arrangement of a B horror-flick legacy without inserting some of that cheese and camp in there, and these do the trick. The second section, while not as moody, is more danceable and still manages to pull some interesting changes, even if it the soundset is clearly stock FruityLoops. The hybrid nature of the piece to me is the appeal - the two renditions play well off each other and the quotes add the right amount of atmosphere. Start playin' this now and frightenin' the children :)
