  1. First game I bought was what came with the Sega Game Gear I purchased at the end of Summer ‘92, after saving all of my babysitting money. At that time, the game gear was being sold with Sonic (obviously) and Columns, the Sega equivalent of Tetris and the game that spawned years of puzzle love.

    It's been a good number of years, Aurora. It's great to see you're still around. How've things been for you, and how went the studies that kept you snow bound for a while?

    As for me, I'm doing alright. Had some ups and downs, but life likes to do that to us all, doesn't it? I'm still working on the occasional remix, doing illustrative/graphic design work, trying to get a trio of novels done (very far in #2 now), 'Twas is still a thing (did #13 last year), and I'm still tinkering with sprite work. I've got a DeviantArt account now, since I got tired of my freebie site hosts going belly up on me. It doesn't have everything, but I've gotten a fair bit uploaded...

    So yeah, that a quickish summary of it all on my end. Hope to hear back from you, especially since I was just wondering a week or so ago what you were doing these days. Hope everything's going your way :)

  3. Hey, Coop! Been a while :D

    Hope you're well.

    where'd u go? we miss u so. it seems it's been forever that you've been gone. srsly. u should host VGDJ again. good times. i'm sure someone like willrock would be willing to co-host

  5. Rayza nails it - you rock my friend. Continue to spread the joy!
  6. hey there... how ya been? Long time!!

  7. whatup folks... Rayza's been fillin me in on what's been goin on! YAY meetup! well seeing as I work all day Saturday (4am - 4:30pm) I won't be in attendance.. HOWEVER Rayza tells me you guys are lunchin' at Jack Astor's. I'm gonna try to pop out of work for a brief moment and just stop by and say hi before I must run back... weekend should be good for roaming around the city
  8. I don't find this acceptable at all. I understand the ownership you feel over the podcast now, the efforts and hard work you've put into the show, but the point of VGDJ was to evolve, just as the community does, and the hard work would lay to waste if it were to die now. It was not meant to create stars, it was not meant to be owned. It was meant as a community service, and as a promotion of the video game music appreciation movement. Though it was my own and Rayza's idea to start something of this nature, it was always in our plan for the show to be passed on, and not have ownership. It was definitely hard to let the show go, but that was not the point... it was never about me, or Rayza. It was about the community. Hence us delegating tasks to people within the community, and hence the current hosts that VGDJ now has. If Pixie doesn't feel that anyone else is good enough to host the show with her other than Zircon, then those who are willing and able to pick up where Zircon and Pixie left off, should, just as Rayza and I passed on the show when we could no longer take it on. I honestly believe that it is not in Zircon's or Pixie's place to decide what the future (or lack thereof) of VGDJ will be. I understand that you (pixie and zircon) are upset about not being able to carry on with it, but that shouldn't stop anyone else from doing so. Please do not take this as an attack. We (all vgdj enthusiasts) are grateful for your service and how you've brought VGDJ to a whole new level since you've taken over. You've created a show people look forward to downloading, you've helped bring a community together. There is no reason why this ideal should die now. Take your accomplishments and let others be of service to OCR and to the VGDJ listeners. I hope you seriously consider this recommendation.
  9. Uhoh. THIS IS HOW IT STARTS. The curse continues! SHADDUP IT'LL BE BACK ... Is it still outsourcing if the US sends it BACK to Canada? No... but it is BETTERsourcing. OSNAP! Patriotism +1 bahaha that was awesome!
  10. Thanks alot Arcana! Weren't people saying the same thing about Rama? Hmmm... Ya... in the 'omg bad rekordingz' way
  11. What? What? And Wingless, your voice was fine. But your mic sounded a bit muted and quiet in parts. Agreed. And by "parts", I mean the entire show. EQ that shit up or something, Wangless! ZAY OER DA ROOKEYS GIVEN BREAK TO ZEM
  12. ConGRATULATIONS! Show sounds awesome! PS: We're Cernadians aren't that retarded. :/
  13. Hi everyone I think the idea of starting a new 'vgdj' isn't the way to go. As I say that, I realise that I haven't been around all that much due to my new job. As for Rayza, I have no idea where he is. What is great to see is that people are willing to keep it alive and see the potential and I and Rayza saw all those months ago. I think the show is a great way to promote the wonderful music and community here, and it makes sense that the show be hosted by different people, not creating a whole new entity. That to me says there's a lack of community here.
  14. hey ya'll Setting the record straight: Me no time to do show, Pixie do show. Pixie do good job. Enjoy show still. We were supposed to do a show together yesterday. Blame me for that I flaked out. Now I gotta go vote. VGDJ FOREVA!
