  1. http://kotaku.com/e-t-found-in-new-mexico-landfill-1568100161 More info: http://bigstory.ap.org/article/diggers-ready-unearth-ataris-et-games-0 The myth is news to me, but then I'm just a casual gamer. This begs a few questions. Why would a company bury "millions" of copies of a game, even if terrible? conspiracy theories are encouraged "the game tanked because 'it was practically broken' with that the E.T. falling into traps that were almost (emphasis added) impossible to escape and would appear constantly and unpredictably." In theory, that sounds awesome actually. The more challenging a game, the better. So long as it's not 100% impossible, I wouldn't complain. Did anyone play the game when it came out? What's your perspective on why it got the reputation it did?
  2. http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/girl-rare-skin-condition-honored-anime-film-article-1.1609985 Saw this article and was deeply moved. The short version: a teenage girl with a skin disorder and ambitions of being a manga star recently died at age 16, and a film director is incorporating her into his coming movie, Black Hat. I'm in awe of the control and precision of her drawing despite the limitations of her hands. She seemed to really love her craft; I figured the OCR community could relate to that. Just wanted to bring some awareness to this movie (which has a compelling plot imo) and the girl at the heart of it, Cassie England. R.I.P.
  3. Thanks for clearing that up. I saw the word in one of the comments but assumed it was a typo for azn -> Asian. Only one other source (another soundcloud comment incidentally) mentioned it specifically being a prayer, but since it was just the one I didn't find it too reliable. I wonder if the oddness is what prompted the producer to only release a Dub version (no full version of the Original was released to my knowledge). Either that, or I'm guessing Herrera received feedback stating its use was offensive.
  4. I'm not religious, don't know anything about the technical aspects of music, but your description intrigued me. Is your vision along the lines of https://soundcloud.com/random-x/random-x-principia-original? Apparently the verses are part of an Islamic prayer (any Muslim to confirm?) Or are you creating your own original lyrics inspired by Biblical text? Whichever option it is, my recc is to not let the music overwhelm the spoken parts. For me the trouble with the song I posted is the vocals are trying to compete with the instrumental and failing miserably (cuz the music's too damn good! )
  5. Forgot how to post. Sorry in advance if I mess up this reply (it's a general question btw) Anyone answer the 5 Qs in the giveaway contest @ http://bulbanews.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Bulbagarden_X/Y_Launch_Giveaway)? More to the point, is anyone 100% confident in their answers? This isn't a help-me-cheat request, but an are-these-questions-even-answerable inquiry.
