  1. I've set up a full torrent with the MP3s, FLACs, and Art all in one. magnet:?xt=urn:btih:34663672C138DFF9444DB1485F25AB9D788CD120&dn=Theophany%20-%20Time%27s%20End%20-%20Majora%27s%20Mask%20Remixed&tr=udp%3a%2f%2ftracker.openbittorrent.com%3a80%2fannounce
  2. Seriously, when I heard the klezmer-esque clarinet I just had to laugh. All of the tracks on the first disc are great but this one really made me smile when I heard it as part of the kickstarter preview. Great mix! Now let's get some real klezmer on OCR!
  3. And even more awesome since they're remaking it! http://www.capcom-unity.com/xantista/blog/2013/03/22/woo-hoo-ducktales-is-back
  4. When I first started listening to this track it reminded me of Blue Orb (and other tracks) from the Katamri Damacy games. Once the whistling came in it took me a bit to place the song, but I immediately let out a cry of delight when I realized it was from Gitaroo Man. It's one of my favorite rhythm games (even though it's short-ish) and it's about time we had some mixes from it on OCR. I agree with djp about the production. It all seems part of the experience and aesthetic of the song. Very indie and heartfelt. This definitely goes on my short list of OCR favorites.
  5. Great mix, I've always been a fan of the more funky mixes (djp, Fortuna Favors the Funk FTW!) and this fits in very well. It is a bit crazy with the different styles and all but I like that too. The Eminem sounding bit at 0:54-1:14 and repeated later is pretty cool as well (has nobody else pointed this out?).
  6. Lovely mix, very well done. The "ballad" guitars reminded me immediately of the Labyrinth soundtrack.
  7. Most of DJP's mixes pull me in but this one definitely sits up there with Love Hurts and Fortuna Favors the Funk for me. Great rhythms, great playing, great sound. I especially love it when the bells come in. The combination of the bells with the rhythm guitar and everything else at that point makes for a very rich sound that still feels very laid back and approachable. I also have to agree with the other posts that the drums have a lot of nuance and fit the jazz theme perfectly. Check it out, and don't miss out on the great Funk mixes that DJP has done as well.
  8. This one blew me away when I first listened to it. I like it better than the first (which was great in its own right) but I did like the original second better than the first too. I can't wait to hear what you do with the rest.
  9. The OCRemix site has for quite a while now used DHTML to replace content on the remix pages when you click on a tab. This is all well and good but the href="#" for these links makes your browser (or at least Firefox) go back to the top of the page. I find this quite annoying as I often scroll down and then have to scroll down again after I click a tab. I asked for this to be fixed when it was first introduced but heard nothing. Today I wrote up a simple Greasemonkey script to replace those naughty hrefs with javascript:void(0) to stop the jumping back to the top of the page. The status bar text is a bit uglier, sure, but at least it no longer jumps to the top on a click: // ==UserScript== // @name OCRemix # removal // @namespace [url]http://www.reversefold.com/[/url] // @description Remove OCRemix's # links for tabs // @include [url]http://www.ocremix.org/remix/*[/url] // ==/UserScript== var allLinks, thisLink; allLinks = document.evaluate('//a[@href="#"]', document, null, XPathResult.UNORDERED_NODE_SNAPSHOT_TYPE, null); for (var i = 0; i < allLinks.snapshotLength; ++i) { thisLink = allLinks.snapshotItem(i); for (var j = 0; j < thisLink.attributes.length; ++j) { if (thisLink.attributes[j].nodeName == "onclick" && thisLink.attributes[j].value.substr(0, 13) == "highlightTab(") { thisLink.href = "javascript:void(0)"; continue; } } }
  10. I love this one almost as much as Love Hurts. Perhaps more. Heck, I'll just say that I like them both equally. I love the great rhythms in this song and just the overall funky-spacey feel. I was a little disappointed, though, that the off-beat 16th notes stopped after only a few plays at the beginning. It confused me for a bit as I wasn't sure if I'd heard them correctly or not the first time through.
  11. but I really feel I've got to put my 2 cents in. This mix always makes me tap my feet (former drummer) and bop in my chair. One of DJP's best mixes and one of my favorites overall.
  12. This mix has really withstood the test of time for me. When I first heard it I was hooked. I have since listened to it many, many times and shared it with others and it still takes me for a ride every time. The clocks and time management clips really ground this mix with the source game (it's all about time, after all) and the ethereal/other-worldly quality of the mix is enhanced nicely by the astral projection clip. The clock sample beats are a real cool effect and tie the piece together very well. The samples sound great and make this mix a wonderful trance-fest. A longer mix (perhaps live?) would be great for coding. This mix is by no means boring, though, with its samples and effects moving throughout the piece in the ways of the truly great trance mixes. The samples from the game are also a very nice touch, reminding me of the hours I spent in high school, sitting in front of my friend's SNES, playing through all of the endings in this great game. Did I mention that I love this mix?
  13. I'm all for JavaScript and the tab interface. It's a great thing. However, could you please not use a blank anchor as the href? I really don't like my pages to jump back to the top when I click a tab. When I'm really loading a new page it's ok, but when you're using JS that simply should not happen. A viable alternative: href="javascript:void()" or, if you really want an anchor, put an anchor just above the tabs and use that anchor name.
  14. The beginning really reminded me of one of the dungeon themes in the Legend of Zelda.
  15. The first thing I thought of when I started listening to this mix was "Wow, this sounds like Dream Theater!" Quite quickly, though, I realized that the inspiration was MUSE and just kept on listening. This is a great remix in the style of the best Progressive Rock around. Great job.
