  1. I was in high school when I got my first job, but my dad was always the provider of video games so up until that point I just came to him with requests. I'm not sure which came first, the PlayStation or the N64, but a friend of mine had me try FF7 on his PS and I rented a N64 with Pod Racer and Mario 64. I quickly realized that 3D graphics and camera controls were a sin and a perversion of video games, so I just quit. Few years later, near the end of the PS2 era, games caught my attention again. The first video game I ever bought with my own money was KotOR. Fell in love with it, bought KotOR II, a PS2 and Dragon Quest VIII. Good games. Then last week I bought Sekiro. Haven't played it yet. The end.


  2. I can't really help you but I seriously hope you can figure out how to get past those feelings. There's so much talent in this community and it's always so cool when someone from here goes past remixing for OCR and composes for a game or a TV show, or starts a successful business creating and selling sample libraries, or ends up performing at Video Games Live or MAGFest. All of these things! I really hope that'll be you, too.

    I'm not a composer like most of these people. I couldn't create anything original to save my life. All I could ever do was make silly remixes and I don't even do that anymore. The only thing I've done in several years is finally finish a remix I started a long time ago. And I really wish I hadn't. It honestly feels like I've actually made the world worse for putting my "music" out there. Just calling it "my music" makes me cringe. There's a voice in my head that says "your music? Please. Just who do you think you are? Come back down to Earth." I just started my first solo album but I'll probably never finish it. Can't seem to make it past "this is really dumb and nobody's going to like this." So pretty much all I do now is contribute things to other people's music. Guitar parts and things like that. Over the years, I've amassed a large collection of all kinds of samples. Particularly drums! So I offer to help people with things like that too. It helps me stay at least a little relevant to this community, which is all I really want. 


  3. i can't recommend etymotics iem's enough. i bought a pair of these a couple of months ago and they are amazing. i get incredibly clear sound and none of the annoying sibilance that happens with most in-ears. don't really need a portable headphone amp or anything with them and while the triple-flange tips do take a little getting used to (took me less than a day and then i stopped noticing they were there), the isolation you get is incredible. you dont bother the outside world and it doesnt bother you. this is also great since you wont have to blast your music to actually be able to hear it, saving your ears in the end. the tips are also sold separately in case you prefer the sound of different headphones and just need better tips.
