Gooood morning, OC. I just arrived yesterday, and I had no idea there was a 'hello newbie' thread! Pretty spiffy. Anyway, I hail from Tennessee, and like I said in my unneccessary 'lone newbie' thread, I've been watching this place for years, but I never had the guts to come in and say hello. Well, I'm here now. I think my favorite game music is Sonic, mostly every Sonic game there ever was (minus the Game Gear and such, I wasn't priveliged-sp? enough to have two handhelds back then). One of the things I hope to accomplish here is finally learn how to make a remix. I think the first thing I'd go for is a remix of the Launch Base Zone 1 from Sonic 3. I've heard great mixes for that song, but it's never been done the way I had in mind Oh, and I'm a huge Mario fan. If there was one costume I could have for Halloween (I know I'm 26, but I haven't had a good costume in 15 years...I miss the candy!) Anyway, music is my life. I can't work without it-literally. I go to work everyday with my mp3 player and fill it with the likes of OC Remix, Tally Hall, and ICP-not my musical inspiration, but it keeps me hopping. My musical inspirations are the like of Josh Groban, Vertical Horizon, and OC's own Jillian Goldin. Her vocal talents are so amazing. My wife and I even sang the Lover Reef song on our wedding day. We're both singers, but I think my gal's a little too shy to make her debut here. She's as good as I am, so I'll see if I can't convincer her to join someday. Anyway, I'm about out of words for now, so thanks for reading, guys. I look forward to taking my first step into the mixing world soon!
