  1. For the first time, I'm off work in time to participate...bring it on!
  2. Not one 1st place victory in 6 years...I feel like chick hicks. "Who's ready for the thunder!? Cha-chiga! Cha-chiga!"
  3. submitted, yeah! I actually got to participate again!! Hopefully, I'll be able to keep participating for more than 3 rounds before I go on a 30 round hiatus!
  4. Well, let me be the first to say that I'm joining the competition! And it's been a ridiculously long time since I last was in a competition, so I'm excited.
  5. It's good to know I'm not the only one! What is it called when you're having trouble remixing anyway? Remixers Block?
  6. It's been a while, but I've got some time to kill. I think I'll dust of the old yamaha and give it a go.
  7. Voted! And regardless of who wins and what song is chosen, I'm in for the 5th anniversary! I even took a couple of days off to insure that my life won't get in the way of me participating!(which has been the case for the last month, oi!) See everyone at the start!
  8. Not our bodies. I don't want any microchips to get in the way of my body massage.
  9. OCR is my home page. Whenever I pull up IE, the first thing I see is OCR. And, of course, the ads on OCR. So, today there was an add for Mabinogi, which is made by the same people who made Maplestory. I was wondering if anyone here has tried Mabinogi? And if so, how is it? Should I give it a whirl? Feel free to say what's on your mind and maybe you people can even use this thread to meetup in game.
  10. I see! N-Gin...Well, scrap and restart for me! I'll have something by late thursday night (ie friday morning)
  11. By the way, what does the "N" stand for? No Gin!? Nothinbut Gin?!? Nakashi Gin!?!?
  12. Locked N' loaded, Loaded for battle, N' Battle Ready. GAME ON!...or REMIX ON!!
  13. Hopfully, Rexy, you already know that I love you and your abilities...so forgive me if I skip all the gushing and congratulations and just get to the part where I scream "NO!" really loud. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ok, now that that's out of my system, GOOD JOB EVERYONE!! I'm also surprised at the number of votes! PRC 124 and 120 had 9 votes and both of those had more entries! To have double the votes vs number of entries, I don't know if that's happened in a long time! So hurrah to us for attracting people!...or something. Ok, I think I just crossed into rambling territory so SEE YOU ALL TOMORROW!!
  14. I forgot to mention the name of my song is Jazz Band Isle.
  15. I just saw the Dark Knight and it was awesome! Quite possibly the best movie ever in it's genre(s). Now to pseudo-add to the discussion at hand, I think that both Batman's have a "no kill" policy. In Burton's Batman, twice the Joker's life is almost saved by Batman (the vat and the tower) The difference between Nolan's Batman and Burton's Batman is how good Batman is. Burton's Batman is a little less cunning, more "normal" if you will, and because of this he doesn't save everyone and goes thru less mental anguish when some dies. Nolan's Batman is highly trained and super intelligent and goes thru great emotional turmoil when someone gets injuried let alone killed, even if it wasn't "his fault" per se. I personal feel that Nolan's Batman is truer to the source than Burton's. That's why when Azel was Batman after Bruce's back was broken by Bane, Bruce got so mad. Because Azel did not have a "no kill" rule. He had a "whatever the fuck it takes" rule. That's also why there is such a large roster of villians in Arkam, because as superpowered, demented, elusive and downright evil they all are, Batman can't kill them. If he kills them, they win in a very sick way. Which is a point Nolan highlights in this movie, and a point Burton and every other director shy away from in the other Batman movies...which has always been something I didn't like about 'em...and a reason I love The Dark Knight!
  16. Hello. I really don't know what to put here. My song is was made in less than 48hrs for the PRC, the best competition run on this site! And I really like the way it turned out and I want to clean it up some more and get it on the site. Any feed back would be greatly appreciated! I put my song on myspace and here's the url: myspace.com/munchioo3
  17. Seven minutes after the dead I finish a couple of tweaks to my song, such as an extended intro, extended beat drop, better balancing, and a slightly revised flute part. I put it on here: myspace.com/munchioo3 and we can consider this a bonus track. And also a WIP 'cause I think I'm going to try to get this onto the main site. EDIT: turned the URL into a hyperlink.
  18. it must be in mp3 format and I believe you can have up to 5 Megs ie 5000kb. And it's ok. There are two people in this world, noobs that feel noobish and noobs that feel confident. And it takes a while to build up your confidence and then one bad song and strip it all away so don't feel bad...this was supposed to be uplifting advice but I stayed up all night watching Fruits Baskets with my sister and then Idiosyncrisy and then I started to work on my song so I'm a little fried.
  19. If Rexy's trying to stimulate people, then I'm gonna' participate. 24 hr cram jam coming up!
  20. I am a huge blind fan and this is terrible news. He will be in my prayers and please keeps us in the community posted with his current condition!
  21. Well, if it's real woohoo! But it's fake it's only one song. I'm totally in. Worst thing that'll happen is nothing and that's exactly what's currently happening in my musical career right now. Expect my song to be classical/techno. My "techno" in the song will probably be closer to a drums and bass feel. Or at least that's kinda what I'm thinking. We'll see I suppose. *EDIT* I hope all of you remain cynical and negative and nobody enters so that I win by super default! Yeah, that sounds good to me!
  22. I also feel like this thread is a good example of another reason sony is floundering. Blu-ray!! No HDDVD!! NOOOO BLURAY!!!! Those things are all well and good, but in the end it's neither. It's games. It's fun. Ironically, on all three platforms they market old games and people actually buy these games. Why? Because they are FUN! Contra is a long, hard, annoying, frustrating, crappy looking game. AND EVERYONE HAS PLAYED IT!! Why...because it's FUN! And that's why Nintendo has been around forever, and will continue to be around. That's why the PSP hasn't come close to the success of the Gameboy and probably never will. That's why, even with less third party support and crappy graphics, people pick up the Wii. Because it's fun! The Gameboy is fun! Can it play movies? No. Can it play music? No. It plays games. And other companies don't understand that people will pay money for something that just plays games. It was the same in the eighties. Computers did everything. Nintendo said, "my computer just plays games...no word processing...no graphic design capabilities...just games." And EVERYONE said, "It's a novelty to be sure, but it'll never last." AND EVERYONE BOUGHT ONE!!! Because the truth was the NES did games better than the computer, because games were the only thing it cared about. Fast forward almost thirty years and it's the same story. "Next Gen" systems do everything. Nintendo says "my next gen system will play games...no blu-ray dvd capabilities...no real hard drive function for storing your music and videos and crap...just games." And EVERYONE said, "It's a novelty to be sure, but it'll never stand up to the PS3!" AND EVERYONE BOUGHT ONE!!! Because the truth is that nintendo does games better than sony. Nintendo games are fun. Sony games are cool. And at the end of the day, in the still of the night, behind locked doors where no one can see, people, alone with themselves, actually care about more about fun than being cool. You're cool if you bought a PS3. And then you sit with a frown in front of it while it takes a half an hour to install Devil May Cry to the hard drive. INSTALL!? What the hell!? I thought this was a gaming console! Oh wait, Sony said it themselves. It's not a console...it's a computer. SHIT!! I already have a computer! I already have a machine that CAN play games, but is INEFFICIENT at meeting my gaming needs. I wanted something that STREAMLINED the processes. That was DESIGNED to play games, to ENSURE my gaming experience was OPTIMIZED. Extras are cool but I want to play my game!! I bought a wii. And when a fun game comes out, I buy it. I play it. I invite friends and we have a BLAST!!! How simple and easy and fun is that!? At the end of the day, that's what's important. That's why in the video game world the ONLY constant is Nintendo. They started as a company that just sold playing card games, nothing else. They are doing the same thing. They just upgrade the cards. And everyone else does something else besides games. Everyone else comes from somewhere else besides games. So they really don't get games. They really don't understand what makes games fun. I've never picked up a mario game was wasn't fun and the controls weren't intuitive. They flow. They're easy to play even when the difficulty is high. And Sony and Microsoft don't get that. They have third parties that get that. Companies like Konami and Level 5 and Ubisoft. So Sony and Microsoft will sell games because they have third parties that get the idea. But Sony and Microsoft will continue to argue and struggle with and focus on all the extras that really aren't the point. And that has and will continue to hurt they're systems success. The best games in the world can't save you from a stupid marketing campaign and an inaccessible system. Sega proved that.
  23. I agree. The switch is inevitable. Now, I will also say that part of sony's problem is the cost of the system. I know others have said that, but you have to think of it this way. A couple years ago everyone had VCRs and to buy a DVD player that WOULD ONLY PLAY DVDS was $300-400 dollars...for a cheap system. Enter the PS2! "Hey parents! Make your kids happy and also get to the dvd player you've been wanting! Oh, and by the way its the same price OR CHEAPER than a boring dvd player. Our dvd player play original playstation games, new AWESOME playstation 2 games, AND dvds!! For the same price OR CHEAPER!!" That was a complete no brainer. And once there was a PS2 in one outta' five homes, dvds took off like a rocket. I didn't have one but my friend did and I would buy dvds because I could go to his house and we'd hang out and watch them. This is the real cause of the speed of the format crossover. Accessible hardware + no noticable increase in costs to the consumer = rapid switch. The PS3 is different. At launch time and even now, the PS3 might be the same price but usually more EXPENSIVE than a plain blu-ray player. I've seen them as cheap as $150! Let me think, pay $150 or pay $600...hmmmm. Yeah, that was a big mistake. There was no "bargain" factor, no "Woohoo, even though I'm shellin' out a couple hundred bucks, I feel like I'm getting the best end of this deal!" It was more like "I'm paying for something that I think is worth it and I'm paying for every cent that it's worth." Which, from a sales perspective, is not what you want consumers thinking, especially during a depressed economic time period. Gas is four dollars a gallon...everyone is looking for the bargain and the discount. When the PS3 moves down in price to consumers feel like they're getting a good deal is when any kind of rapid transfer will take place. A lot of big businesses forget this fact but perception is reality.
