  1. Yep, I'm alive. The guy robbed a bank and then turned into the school parking lot, thinking it was a side road, and promptly crashed into the building. I've been looking for copies of the news article, but it was 1991 before the internets.

  2. Oy, sorry if it looked like I was taking a stab at you there. I wanted to say that I typically read your arguments with interest, if I don't always respond, and I respect the fuck out of you for the way you generally keep your cool and treat everyone with equal respect in the PPR threads.

  3. Glad to hear it, Mirby. Happy birthday.

  4. sorry, download should be fixed

  5. I have re-uploaded and enabled downloads just for you.


  6. Hrm. It's either Terminus Est or Fallen Ravens, neither of which was actually finished. Was it an intense piece or a sad one?

  7. Hey, which song are you talking about?

  8. how's the shit sandwich I made you coming?

  9. oh yeah, sweet, cubase. I'll send that tonight.

  10. Could I send you an OMF instead of hte stems or does it have to be stems

  11. It really hasn't changed since the last time I sent it to you for a solo. Fishy hasn't done the drums yet, either.

    But I think it's probably better that I send you the stems; I'll do that tonight.

  12. Fistful was a combination of 4 playthroughs, 2 on a very bassy 6 string and 2 on a tinny 12 string.

  13. Sure! Basically that tone is either achieved by owning a gypsy guitar like a Gitane DG300 or by cutting out a lot of low and boosting a bunch of high. Play with it a bit and you'll find the right tone :)

  14. lol, thanks for the confidence. I'll do my best to make it work out, but I can't guarantee the judge's opinions. OA didn't seem to have nearly as much of a problem with it as larry did

  15. Same as it ever was, brother. I've tinkered for it for like 4 hours and the more I mess with it the more it keeps breaking. Larry's fixes are going to take a lot more time and maybe a lot more talent than I have. I will take another look at it this weekend if I have time (I may be ripping apart my studio for a paint job/rearranging) and give you a final call on it.

  16. Still where it was, brother. Sorry. Larry's fixes are going to take a shit ton of time that I'm not sure I have. I'll try to make some time to look at it this weekend, but it might get down to take-it-or-leave it.

  17. If it's local, I'll be there. If not, I can't take off the work, unfortunately. I hope I'll see you there.

  18. Garp, where are you from? I detected a slight accent when I met you and I've been curious since that moment.

  19. Anything will taste like crap if you burn it! dammit man, get it together!

    As for the FF2 song..well, Larry kind of gave me a pretty big laundry list to work with. I think I can fix all of it but it might take some time. I've honestly been working on other projects in the meantime. I'll get back to it this week/next week if that's cool.

  20. Hey, thanks for checking in on the novel. It was politely rejected by a very big NY agent (the guy who represents Brandon Sanderson) with the caveat that he'd like to continue our relationship and likely represent me int he future. So while In the Shadow of Legends might not see the light of day, I have a good "in" into the publishing world. I'm in the midle of another novel right now and I expect I'll be looking for readers come summertime, if you're interested. Thanks for taking the time out to read even a little!

  21. I was in the gym a few days ago letting my OCR playlist roll, which has the torrents in them at random. For the first time, I heard Hymn of Aveh, and I literally stopped in the middle of the gym and just stood there, listening. Fantastic, fantastic work. It actually took me a while to figure out who did it, but then I stumbled on your FF9 You Are Not Alone, also wonderful. Please keep making music.

  22. I use a cast-iron pan on my stove, but there are other ways to do it. I'm sure if you youtube it there are plenty of solutions.

  23. RE: Beatboxing, just make sure you shoot me a PM if you want something. I don't check the collab forums all that often. Thanks!
