  1. Like Darkesword said, there are literally hundreds of fake university shirts, and frankly I think OU makes a lot more sense than most. From the about page: Part of this site's purpose is education about video game music, its past and musical appreciation of it. There are a number of university courses on music appreciation. Granted, the site is primarily about rearranging vg music, but I think it's a stretch to imply that no one has ever learned anything here. Exactly. That YOU'RE not aware of. Most people are though. I think you're projecting your own opinion just a bit there.
  2. I'm not sure that the second shirt conveys OCR's purpose either. Don't know about you, but I don't generally see a bunch of instruments on a person's shirt and immediately think, "Oh, remixing video game music, and by remixing it actually means rearranging." I like the first shirt because it's a bit more aesthetically pleasing, and "Overclocked University" sounds awesome. If I saw someone wearing a shirt like that, (and didn't know what OCR was) I'd probably ask them about it. I think both shirt designs are decent, but OU is my clear preference.
  3. I'm inclined to disagree. The phrase "Overclocked" doesn't exactly conjure images of preppiness.
  4. Thanks, I'm using copious amounts of dayquil and nyquil. Without them, I probably could not have finished at all. Yea, ear infections suck. =(
  5. Seems like a lot of people had a bad week. I got an ear infection and lost about half my hearing. My mind's been in a fog. I kept forgetting what genre I was doing, lol. Oh well, I did what I could.
  6. Remix requests are here: http://ocremix.org/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=10
  7. Only 12 votes so far. Guess I'm not the only one having trouble deciding.
  8. Well duh. Ocr has a different definition than the rest of the web. Why do you think I posted a quote making that very point? Are you suggesting that this isn't a rearrangement compo at all?
  9. "The webmaster of OverClocked ReMix is David W. Lloyd (a.k.a. djpretzel),[2] who coined the word "ReMix" to refer to interpretive arrangements, as opposed to a remix which typically involves alterations to master recordings."
  10. Wily Castle REMIX Gauntlet This is a remix competition.
  11. This is a remix competition. If everyone started voting on tracks they thought sounded most like covers, it would defeat the whole point of the compo. Granted, he is entitled to his own opinion, just as we are entitled to remind him the purpose of this compo. Everything you've said up to this point gives the impression that you are interested in covers. I think the problem is you are judging the mixes based on whether you can hear the main melody or not. Some mixes won't use the main melody from the source. If you can't hear the source in a mix, I suggest you go back and listen to the source. The whole source. I think you'll be surprised just how hard many remixers try to make the source recognizable, while still blending in with the other theme. Whoa, hold on. I think some sort of understanding can be reached, so there's no need for that. Besides, OCR is an inclusive place. I don't think MindWanderer needs to vacate the thread just because he has a dissenting opinion, even a silly one.
  12. This is a remix competition. The goal is to make "well-executed" remixes, not "solid covers".
  13. I think it's important to remember that there's more to a song than just its main melody. And when you remix something, you won't necessarily use the parts that are the most memorable.
  14. Believe it or not, that's actually my most common style, just not one I think I've used much on OCR. I was planning on doing something else, something much more ambitious, but I ran into a wall and couldn't finish it. So at about 4am Saturday morning, I finally accepted that I couldn't finish my original idea and started over with a new arrangement. Because of time constraints, I decided to go with something easy and comfortable for me.Anyways, this week I'll be trying something ambitious again but I'll have a backup plan just in case. I'll be representing The Concrete Men. Any genre preference? =)
  15. I think we're all aware that sending large quantities of the same message to youtube may not be the best way to prove we aren't spammers. But what alternative exists? Youtube has effectively thrown away hundreds of hours of effort on the part of the ocremix team, defamed them without just cause, and disrupted their ability to function as a non-profit entity. Youtube's actions have severe consequences. To add insult to injury, they've provided no direct means of rectifying their error. Therefore, I believe we are justified in pursuing any reasonable action to correct this grievous mistake.
  16. Would you mind if I wrote them instead of tweeting?
  17. Actually, youtube channels get taken down all the time for false flagging. And false flagging because many don't understand Fair Use is common. But you're right, a hack is a very likely possibility.
  18. It's probably due to false flagging. There are many people that don't know what derivative works or Fair Use are.
  19. I just checked, and I'm getting the same message.
  20. Alright, if you're gonna deny it in public, then consider your supply cut off.
