  1. When I heard this on the album trailer, I was racking my brain wondering which Animal Crossing game it was from. No wonder I couldn't figure it out!
  2. Can we PLEASE get Rough McGruff doing a cover of the best acapella in VG: The "Secret Stage" music from Super Mario Sunshine?
  3. BTW guys, TimeShock Extra is still on YouTube (DL links still broken tho)
  4. I don't have any music that I really refuse to do, but I most certainly prefer to work with catchy songs that I remember fondly. Since I grew up playing a Gamecube, my current "brain mixes" are a jazz-ish medley of Double Dash and a rockin' remix of the Hooktail battle theme from Thousand-Year Door.* The problem with working with newer tracks is that (a) I can't deviate too much without the risk of "ruining" the source, and ( The source sounds so good that there isn't much room for interpretation. * P.S. Seriously guys WTF why are there no Paper Mario remixes yet?! If I'm the first one to get a PM ReMix posted, I will be sooooooooooo disappoint.
  5. Aw Yeah!! Never especially liked the original, and despised the SSBB version, but DAMN this is good. PR, don't ever stop making music.
  6. Well I do, but the youtubez are always faster for me...
  7. What's the current official statement regarding this issue? Also, way to ruin my peaceful weekend, YouTube. I was just gonna watch Desert Bus and listen to music but NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
  8. This was sudden; it was working yesterday! ;(
  9. Grrr. I lost my weekend to buying a new suit for senior yearbook photos (why they do this in junior year beats me), so no new headphones were bought... so I have another week to choose. Suggestions are still welcome, but I did some research and I have decided to purchase Sennheiser headphones (haven't picked a specific model yet, though). UPDATE: I have just ordered a pair of Sennheiser HD 203 headphones (and a 360 copy of L.A. Noire) on Amazon. Since this shopping journey has (hopefully...) ended, Moderators: you may lock this thread at your earliest convenience (despite the lively, fast-paced discussion it triggered ).
  10. Thanks for the links, StigTrix. I'll check them out in a minute. I'm looking for portable over-ear headphones or good-quality earbuds. Not sure what "monitors" are (a certain style of headphones, maybe? Made for a certain purpose?) or why they're special, but that's because i iz terminology n00b As for comfort, it's... moderately important. Obviously, pain is bad and should be avoided, but past that, they only need to be comfortable enough that I'm not constantly aware of their presence. It's safe to say that I will use my new headphones/earbuds more for pleasure listening than for serious production (in case this has any effect on anything). Oh don't worry; my iPod's battery life became unusably short about a year ago I use my earbuds mainly on my laptop and on my original ("chunky") DS. And I do agree that iPod sound quality could use some improvement. EDIT: When I'm shopping around, I'd like to know what the different specs mean--mainly "Frequency Response," "THD," and "Impedance"--and maybe some example values for each (i.e. what frequency is bass at?, etc). EDIT 2: I'm starting to compile a list of songs (all from OCR, of course) that represent all of the genres that I like to listen to, so I have a constant to test headphones against (a.k.a. my family-room stereo). I've updated the OP with my list and my other updates.
  11. Hello, OCR; today is a sad day; my old, loyal, beloved pair of iPod earbuds (SHUT UP OUR LOVE WAS TRUE ) finally died. I put them away for literally less than a minute as I walked to class, only to find when I took them out again that the left earbud had a fully detached cover and was unable to play any sound at all (I can't leave you two alone for even a minute, can I? ) I'm going to go to the store this weekend to buy a replacement pair, but I wanted you guys' suggestions as to what pair of earbuds or headphones I should get. What I need: Earbuds or portable headphones (over-ear headphones preferred, if possible) Low cost ($50 at most, but preferably less) Available at a major retailer in Northern Virginia (Apple Store, Best Buy, or Target plz) OR an online retailer that can ship them to me very quickly Good all-around sound quality, including bass (I <3 phat bass, but it shouldn't overpower everything else) Doesn't "leak" sound (those nearby should not hear my music; sadly, iPod 'buds fail at this catastrophically) Cord length >= 3'6" (42", or 106.7cm) Fits comfortably in/on ear and stays there (must not fall out/off when I'm headbanging) Longevity -- I really don't want to do this again any time soon! I do not need or care about an on-cord microphone/volume control or noise-cancelling capability (actually, I'd prefer if they weren't noise-cancelling). I checked Consumer Reports' latest headphone ratings, but they're all way too expensive (the only pair within my budget was Apple iPhone earbuds:tomatoface:), so I definitely need suggestions from you guys! Any recommendations are appreciated. EDIT: ABSOLUTELY NO CLIP-ONS. THOSE THINGS HURT. A LOT. EDIT 2: I would like some guidance on headphone specs (what the heck do "THD," "Frequency Response," "Impedance," and "Signal Sensitivity" mean?) and some example values for each (i.e. "Frequency Response with 30Hz or less has good treble," etc). EDIT 3: I'm making a list of OCR tracks that represent my personal favorite genres with which to test my headphones (against my family-room stereo set), but I need some help on certain genres. Here's my list so far: General (does everything equally, but nothing exceptionally; middle-of-the-road): NEED SUGGESTIONS Orchestral: The Angels of Hell by Random Hero Phat, "Evil" Techno: Sturm und Kong by djpretzel Clean Techno/Electro House: Casino Lounge by Mattias Häggström Gerdt and GSlicer; Chemixtrixx by PrototypeRaptor Chiptunes! Agahnim Arsenik by AeroZ "Chiptunes Plus": Spoiled R0TT3N by Benjamin Briggs Ambient/Trance: The Forerunner Mix (Alpha) by Nick Singer; NEED TRANCE SUGGESTIONS Rock (NOT METAL): NEED SUGGESTIONS Choral/Vocal: Oil Ocean (WT-40 Mix) by PlanetSkill; Time to Oil Up by zircon and Jillian Aversa
  12. Love it. Definitely sounds like VVVVVV, but I swear I hear Meat Boy themes in there, especially in the background melody (at 2:12, I DEFINITELY hear the "Teh Internets" tune), but I guess you can't plagiarize your own original work... ...not that Danny would ever do such a thing.
  13. Just finished listening to all the tracks straight through. I... don't know how to explain how epic this is in words appropriate for ANY website. Let's just say that I cried at the end because there were no more tracks to hear. I'm especially sad that a bunch of great source tunes had to be neglected on this album, especially a bunch from DPP. Also, imma let you finish, but Pokémon Colosseum and Pokémon XD had some of the best music ever (even if most were just variations on a theme). What's Missing(no) IMHO -- a rough draft: All games: PokéMart theme DPP: Game Corner Colosseum/XD: Pyrite Town (The XD version has better quality) (synchronized Ludicolos ftw!) To fully represent the series, I say a sequel album ("Still Missingno"?) is in order, maybe in a few years. It would help fill in the HUGE gaps that Missingno Tracks didn't cover, and could cover the gen-5 musics...
  14. Nice, calm piece with a recognizable (and this followable) melody. I find it interesting that style of this ReMix is nearly identical to that of "Breakout" by Hollidayrain, whose name is similar to the title of this ReMix... probably just a coincidence, though.
