  1. I hope I didn't come off as trying to be unkind. I love the site, have for decades(!). If this site was still the 2000's orange design, I'd still use it.
  2. With the forum and the comments being less used then back in the day, I think the main page could do with a reorganization. Moving the new tracks front and center, or something like that. Considering most of the community has moved to Discord, it probably wouldn't hurt to have a link for that somewhere. And Soundcloud is great and all, but the Jet Force Gemini album came out nine months ago but it takes up a ton of real estate. I suppose it looks fine on mobile, though I'm sure it could be more streaming friendly. Anyway, I suggest all of that without having any knowledge of future site plans, costs or the amount of time any of that would take.
  3. Always a good day when MkVaff brings us new music! Love this one. When he shared "Cosmo" back in 2018, it was on constant loop for me. This one is already doing the same thing!
  4. For me, it's Final Fantasy VI: Balance and Ruin. That one nailed each track and my initial listen had me smiling from ear to ear. It's also the one where I realized how consistent and unified the directors and mixers were able to make a four disc album. None of the songs felt out of place and a bunch even compliment each other. I'm partial to FFVI in general, but it really was an awesome release. For pure fun, I'm also a fan of Heroes vs. Villains, which is just a party.
  5. We moved to North Carolina basically a week before everything got shutdown, was a stressful time. We moved for my wife's new teaching job, of which she's been doing remotely. I had an interview schedule but it's been delayed indefinitely and most of the other jobs I applied for have said the same thing. Besides looking for work, I've been recording lots of podcasts, reading lots of X-Men on Marvel Unlimited, watching lots of Criterion Channel and playing older games like Mega Man X, Sim City 2000 and XIII.
  6. Alright. I edited my Mirror's Edge playthrough with House of Pain's Jump Around for a different type of Let's Play.
  7. I've noticed the forum's lack of engagement with no small amount of sadness, OCR is one of the first online communities I found as a teenager. But, yeah, things have moved away from forums. When I mention I was talking in forum to friends, the give me cocked looks, wondering where the heck that's even a thing anymore. Besides Discord and Reddit, I think Twitter was the beginning of the end. The Cane and Rinse forum is still alive and kicking, if anyone is interested in still active video game forums, apart from this one. I spend a lot of time over there as well. https://caneandrinse.com/forum/
  8. I'm gonna be wearing my OCR t-shirt! If you see me, say hi!
  9. http://www.retrogamecon.com/ Hey! Anyone from the community going to be there?
  10. I think it's a thumping beat with just the right amount of cheese. I'm a sucker for a well used vox, and some of the choices had me chuckling with their well placed timing. It's a cool, fun take on a groovy source.
  11. I want to get some books on music production/mixing for our teen section of the library. Any suggestions? Even if they're not aimed at teens, they'll be good to add and have on hand.
  12. I've never played this game or heard this source before, but I must have this mix on DDR.
  13. If you haven't listened, check it out. This is great show! Lots of tracks I've never heard, too! https://caneandrinse.com/overclocked-remix/
  14. This take feels like it shares some basic DNA with YoshiBlade's DK2 mix, "Be Kind, Rewind", even down to that tape-clicking-in-place sound. I really like this mix and I love seeing the FTL soundtrack getting some love. This listens like it's an extension of an already great source, but this is a bit more groovy. I can feel contemplative, sure, but I can bob my head to it as well. Cool mix!
  15. I like the call and response of the piano and the synth. This track has a lot of energy from the get-go and then finds more in the tank at the 2 minute mark. It's a bright, zippy, full take on a classic from an always reliable mixer.
  16. I'm in on Classic. It's been a lot of fun, especially since that's the only WoW I've played. I had to stop back in 2006, before Burning Crusade showed up. I'm in Smolderweb, since it was the only realm I could get into after launch! It's a west coast server, which means I get a few east coast hours before the server becomes really crowded.
  17. Lion King was brutal. Never finished it. I don't remember it being that much fun, either. Maybe I was just frustrated in that stupid thorn level.
  18. The lack of SNES (my version) is sad. A license issue?
  19. I work at a library and we have a weekly podcast called the All the Books Show. This week, we talked about music we listen to while we read and I did a few supplement episodes about Overclocked Remix. The first was an interview with Liontamer (Larry Oji) about the site, it's history and mission, ect. It was a lot of fun to do and I dug all the behind the scene stuff I wasn't aware of. Larry can just name remixers like a machine. The second was an Overclocked Remix playlist episode I put together with my co-host, Nic. That was a lot of fun to do.
