  1. I would like to start by saying a very big thank you to everyone who worked/is working on the Star Fox 25 Anniversary Album project. It's truly great to see people so passionate about something, especially something that is so close to my heart. I would like to especially thank @The Nikanorufor dedicating so much time to this project and for getting it off the ground. I have full confidence that this album will one of the best things to ever be produced from this site. Also, when this album gets released, if I am mentioned anywhere, make sure it's the last name on the list.

    The reason I am saying this is the same reason I myself didn't direct the album. Life sometime takes us by surprise and we don't have time for things that we used to. I am am fine health-wise, but I am just having less and less time to stop by, and it looks as though things wont be getting any better in that regard.

    And I just have to say @djpretzel, thank you so much creating such a wonderful place that brings so many different people together to make such beautiful things. I haven't been here as a member long, but I've been visiting for years, and I really just want to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything you've done for this site.

    You may not know me, maybe we'll never meet, you probably don't care, but I hope this Star Fox album brings you at least a small degree of happiness. I hope that because of an idea some nobody had one evening, your day has been improved if only for as long as the music lasts.

    I was here.

      Thank you, Mr. Neil. 

      Thank you.

  2. lol so remember when we were on the AFIS live stream yesterday and people were like "Why would anyone dislike this" and you were like "We should hunt them down"? Well, Look no further, cuz its me, and let me explain: I have been an avid critic against AFIS ever since its conception because the show, animation, themes, and animators are just an irreverent insult to the franchise. If you saw Lylat Legacy like I mentioned yesterday, you can see that the art is gorgeously epic, the story is well-crafted, etc. even though it's only an SF SNES/64 prequel. AFIS takes place in the same timeline, but instead has an art style that looks like it's from the half-decent section of Deviantart, an animation style that a 16-year-old could put together, a fetish-filled story that wrecks half of the characters, and just an overall theme that Star Fox is a big furry joke for us to laugh at. And the animators are just people who have nothing better to do with their lives then be furries in their 30s or 40s or whatever and drink and smoke to their hearts content in whatever crappy apartment they live in and animate for hours on end. Sure, I respect Fred's knowledge of retro gaming history, but other than that he has no redeeming qualities. So yeah, that's my honest opinion of AFIS, just thought you'd wanna know. The only reason I watch the stream is to dislike it, make sure Fred is months behind finishing another episode, and try to steer the chat toward better content like Lylat Legacies. Hope you don't hate me too hard :P And please don't call me out on this on AFIS chats, cuz I still have some fun talking with others that legitimately enjoy the franchise. K that was longer than I thought

      *I don't think you know or not*

      Very frustrating when you can't edit posts on channels...

      I mean, yeah, Fred and the others talk about...stuff...

      (they banned quote raids why? (I started a huge SB quote raid...maybe that's why...))

      I won't call you out, DS, I understand your dislikes about the show.

      But, hey, Nintendo's not going to do anything else about SF (maybe, after SFZ...), so someone else has to do it.

      One thing that I think you like about it- the music.

      I don't know or not, but Fred's basically remaking the whole SF64 promo trailer for the beginning of Ep. 2. 

      That's cool, at least.

      I don't want to make you mad, or anything, so I'm going to stop here.

      Good luck on your tracks.
