  1. The new Animal Crossing remix album from Ben Briggs and ectogemia is out just in time for New Leaf! Working with ectogemia (Nathan Becker) on K.K. and Friends has been a really fun and natural experience from start to finish, and we're proud to be finally showcasing the finished product! The music from the Animal Crossing series is fantastic, and we just wanted to tribute that in a way that fans of the games could truly appreciate... what all started from one remix became a huge, wonderful collaboration, and I hope you all love it. Shout-out to OCR's own Shael Riley for accidentally inspiring the entire album with just one tweet. Click the artwork below (by Tron Bonne Art) to download the album from iTunes, Bandcamp, or loudr.fm! Hope you guys enjoy the tunage! It makes a pretty good alternate soundtrack to New Leaf, we've heard ;D With love, -Benjamin Briggs, ectogemia, and K.K. Slider KKandFriends.com
  2. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, HALK for fuck's sake, buy some of his music! http://halc.bandcamp.com/
  3. aw, thanks everyone! I had a great birthday full of paypal donations, delicious food, and waaay too much booze! thanks again for the well-wishes, I hope everyone's next birthday can be as awesome as mine was
  4. I proudly present my newest original album, Mystery Gift! This is all supposed to sound like Game Boy Advance style video game music, each track loops twice and then fades out just like a real soundtrack. I also listened to the sound of each track and used that to build locations for a loose Pokémon storyline/universe building type thing. Hope you enjoy this free original offering!! (amazing artwork by StevRayBro) GET THE ALBUM HERE
  5. it would greatly benefit any independent artist to stop thinking of "the music industry" in the old-world sense of record labels and getting lucky or whatever there is an entirely new music industry within the actual reality of social media and the internet. cut out the middle man, and interact directly with your target audience. for me, my perseverance and daily streams of content are ultimately what grow my brand and increase sales/donations
  6. zelda II: adventure of link fucking. checkpoints.
  7. awesome, man. your production quality always blows my mind. modest of you not to go name-dropping all over the place (I wouldn't have been able to resist lol), hopefully my sharing and reposting will help gain you some traction.
  8. smell is strongly linked to memory for example I used to have hot chocolate every morning while watching the pokemon anime so now every time I smell or drink hot chocolate I have pokemon flashbacks
  9. I think the n64 version is kickass! still play it on rainy days also, remember the horrible Gameboy advance port of sonic the hedgehog? every single possible thing you could break has been broken you might cry. somehow the special stage music sounds better than the genesis though
  10. aww yeah I'll be broadcasting the album in high-fidelity, 192 kbps audio! LIVE! WOOOO come ask halc too many questions in the chat!

  15. lol these threads shouldn't have been separated I put my response in the other thread oh well
  16. the appeal of watching someone play a video game, to an actual gamer, should be obvious. have you never sat in a room with a friend and watched them play zelda? ...it's fun. you all should check out Retsupurae, where they find the worst and strangest let's plays and make fun of them. sometimes they have other people play while they commentate, and very rarely they will actually play a game in my opinion, finding livestreams on http://twitch.tv/ to watch is way more fun than recorded let's plays. I will admit that I love to put on Game Grumps' Sonic 06 run when I'm cooking or cleaning or eating, but other than GG and retsu I only watch speedruns and livestreams oh, related news as well: siglemic just set a new 70-star World Record for Super Mario 64, and he livestreams ALLLL the time. http://www.twitch.tv/siglemic Speed Runs Live: http://www.twitch.tv/team/srl

  21. *looks at copy of starfox* *feels old* *plays starfox* *feels young again* oh, this SPAM is slightly related:
  22. no problem! I really like that remix, and soundcloud's new setup is AMAZING and I hope they never change it... because I can actually help something like that gain more exposure just by clicking on a button. everything should be that way!
  23. I'm ready to take the plunge. Change my name to "Benjamin Briggs", please. Thanks
