  1. Lulz. Sorry for the bump, but I just dropped by WIP-Other to post a link to a new mashup I just made, the first one I'd actually finished (as opposed to getting halfway in not feeling like finishing/mastering it) in forever, then I decided to see if anyone had been talking about me in my absence. Was totally not expecting this thread, nor several links to my old stuff having been posted . Personally, though, I don't really think that Bust-a-move mashup I made was all that well-executed, though I am proud, albeit also surprised, to have been apparently the first mashup-person to have thought of it. Not to toot my horn or anything, though, but I am much happier with the mix I put this one through. (On Peut Tous Iced Out.) Mostly, though, I'm happy I came upon this thread because I saw the "OCRemix" mashups on my rss April 2nd, they were already broken links, so I stupidly assumed they always had been, and the joke didn't involve real mashups having been made. I'm glad they were, and that a mirror was hosted - can always have more vgmashups.
  2. Hey peoples, remember me? Bet you don't, I never come this way anymore. I never actually finish mashups ever anymore, either. But I just finished one, and while it isn't technically vgmusic, it still borrows half its source from a chiptune artist I learned of through this scene, one Big Giant Circles. So I figured if even a couple people besides me were amused by its similarity to a reasonably-well known rock song, that's reason enough to post it. I give you: Move Katana Blasters Along Big Giant Circles - Katana Blaster v. All American Rejects - Move Along I obvious take no credit for any part of the original sources, merely for cutting them up and stitching them together.
  3. Well... remember me? I bet you don't, I haven't been here in forever, I'm too busy being obsessed with KoL these days. I may not be as involved in the community, though, but that doesn't mean I've stopped enjoying vgmusic, and Uematsu is still pretty high up there on the list of awesome vgmusic composers. So, anyway, consider me posted, I guess. Edit: hah. I still have over 5 posts a day, and it's been like 4 years since I've been particularly active here. That's just hilarious.
  4. Who'd have thought! Anyway, Manau is by far my favorite celtic-inspired French hiphop group (I know, they don't have much competition, but seriously, they're pretty great). But every time I listened to the title track of their cd, On Peut Tous Rêver, I knew I'd heard the song somewhere else, I just couldn't place it. Well, I think I have to turn in my nerd-music card - finally, after seriously years, it just hit me: it's the Ice Cap theme! Not just any Ice Cap, either - it's pretty much exactly DCT's Ice Cap. And I have proof (I chopped up and reordered DCT's remix a bit, and fiddled with the equalizer a bit, but still): Manau - On Peut Tous Rêver (not modified in any way!) + DCT - Iced Out Nine Twenty Two (also known as a wip instrumental version of Memories Frozen in Time, but it was specifically that one I used, even though an instrumental was available of the accepted version ) = neminem - On Peut Tous Iced Out edit: bass now fixed properly, I think Oh, and fun fact: except for the bridge, and igoring the fact that lyrically they're nothing alike, this Manau song (and by extension, also the Ice Cap theme) is pretty much equivalent to the tune of Nirvana's Rape Me. I couldn't find anything taking advantage of this - hopefully someone less mashupful and more Remixly will take advantage of this find, assuming it hasn't already been done?
  5. Anyone still remember me? I'm guessing not so much, outside of maybe old UnMod regulars, who probably don't come here anyway. Be that as it may, once upon a time, I fiddled with mashups on a regular basis and actually finished them sometimes. As opposed to now, where I still fiddle with mashups sometimes, but hardly ever finish them. Well... when this Remix came out, it sounded like a well-known pop song, so I put the two together, then let it sit for ages. Today, I actually got it back out and finished it! I give you: halc - The Forest That Never Sleeps v. Owl City - Fireflies The Fireflies That Never Sleep The rest of my mashups are, of course, still here, if anyone cares.
  6. It does indeed sound very much like NIN. I mention this because this song just came up on shuffle on my mp3 player today, and now it's on my "I should make a mashup out of this song" list. Watch this space! (Also, yes, it is in fact quite a great remix. But you already knew that.)
  7. Hahaha... the sidebar. I never really cared one way or the other, but if I say it sucked, will you ban me? I totally missed out on that, back when I was active here. Also, that's an awesome site, Xerol.
  8. Thanks! One picture >> no pictures. P.S. Mustin, your sig reminded me - just in case you're curious, I've listened to Chronotorious like a dozen times already.
  9. Ping? How about those pictures, people who took pictures?
  10. Hi! I just dropped by momentarily cause of the unexpected mini-KoLCon-OCR-meet. But then I had to see if anyone mentioned me while I was gone, and hey, sure enough... pretty cool that someone mentioned me, but if you haven't totally forgotten about this thread, I was That Guy Who Always Annoyed Everyone By Talking About Mashups, back before I mostly left this corner of the internet. Anyway, a totally arbitrary datadump of mashup artists I consider "extremely good", in alphabetical order (some still actively making music, some not so much - and many other talented artists left off the list arbitrarily, or it'd be huge): 10000 Spoons A+D Aggro1 Alex C Alex H Bobby Martini CCC Divide & Kreate DJ Earworm (top 3!) DJ John Mash DJ Schmolli DJ Tripp Go Home Productions (top 3! Seriously, this guy pretty much defines the term "professional-sounding". He said he stopped making mashups a couple years ago - don't believe him. Sign up for his email list, and he'll send out sekrit mashups every so often .) Martinn Norwegian Recycling (top 3! But you already know that) Party Ben (top 3... err... 4! Mostly for his collab with team9 on American Edit, by far my favorite mashup album, and I don't even like Green Day that much) team9 Voicedude (top... 5? Looks like. Voicedude is awesome. And I met him once, too!) And yes, there's way more rap than anything else - that's cause rap is a. easier to mash than anything else, and b. waaaaay easier to find pellas for. Given that this thread is a month old, I wouldn't be surprised if you'd already either figured this out yourself or given it up, but: the best way to find mashup artists you like is to just start with one, see who he mentions as friends/influences on his site, recurse - that's how I got my first... several gigs. The other way is to just start watching GYBO, but you get a lot of crap mixed in with the good stuff that way. Hopefully I haven't annoyed anyone by bumping this thread - I just saw it not get a good answer, and with my name in it no less, and I used to be the guy answering threads like this!
  11. Geez. I miss this place... I even remember your avatar, NNY. Of course, if you're ever in town again... I certainly won't be there unless it's for next year's KoLCon (which, hopefully, it will be), as it was a 6 hour drive. Unless of course, as I said before, "in town" is LA, which would be awesome. Oh, and by the way, you should totally all play KoL. If you try it and think it might be interesting, I will happily send you some meat (the currency). Cause yeah - about the time I stopped paying that much attention to OCR other than my rss of new music, I got pulled into the KoL community instead. I was there for Con - The OneUps were just the icing on the cake. But some pretty phenomenally tasty icing, as it were (and sorry if I annoyed you by constantly calling you The Minibosses, by the way; my mind was apparently stuck in a year ago. ) I look forward to the pictures! P.S. No, Con was definitely not just for 21-and-overs... though this venue was way better about that than last year's, incidentally. Last year's wasn't, either, but if you were over 21 you had, like, chairs and things. Now I wish I still paid attention to these forums, so I could've told everyone that before, so they didn't gripe in the direction of KoL for things that weren't true. There was one event Sunday evening that was drinking-age-only, but that was it. P.P.S. Have I mentioned yet that you should go play KoL? And kmail me (neminem) if you do? Cause you should.
  12. Yeah, so I hardly ever come into the forums anymore, but I'm one of those people now, and I might as well say so here. Started playing WoW when I graduated last winter; almost have a 70. Namely, I just hit 69 last night. Shouldn't be too much longer. Once I hit 70, I expect I'll probably start leveling a second, and log onto the first only every once in a while, or when I have friends to group with. Oh, and I'm on Runetotem, for the record. Half the reason I joined the WoW-playing ranks was cause a bunch of people I know from college started a guild back in the beginning, which I'm now in. If any of you are ever on Runetotem, and you see a member of 7 Scientists, they almost certainly went to Mudd (or another of the Claremont colleges, and know a Mudder). Kingdom of Loathing's still the game I care the most about, though. Over 2/3s of the way done with my oxyloop! (Something which doesn't take very many hours, but takes about 6 months of not many hours).
  13. I told tweek that if he reminded me, I'd buy one. He reminded me, and I bought one. Looking forward to it! And to having a cd of which even less will be pressed than there were of my Project Majestic Mix cds, something I didn't think possible.
  14. You might have noticed, I don't tend to pay that much attention to forum goings-on around here anymore. So I'm glad tweek poked me to tell me about this - as I told him already at that time, this looks pretty shiny, and I'm definitely buying a copy.
  15. Cool - glad to hear you enjoyed it. Even if I, personally, agree more with the GYBO people... I think the OMF one's way more musically interesting, too. But I'm glad you liked the JT, anyway.
  16. Funny - you're the first to have stated that preference. The handful of people at GYBO that responded to the thread there all said they liked the OMF one, and the JT was meh. Anyway, thanks for the listen.
  17. Just thought I'd let anyone who happened to stumble into this subforum know that I just uploaded 3 new mashups, two of which should interest those interested in vgmusic (and the other of which is Queen, and everyone likes Queen.) They are: Sexy Loch Prophecy - Shoddy Loch (from the Cave Story remix project) v. Justin Timberlake - Sexy Back (acapella) Somebody Must Fall Kenny Chou - One Must Fall 2097 Menu Music v. The Killers - Somebody Told Me (acapella) I Want To Break Free (From High School) Queen - I Want To Break Free (instrumental, and vocal bits) v. High School Musical - Breaking Free (pella) And, of course, as always, the entire list is here. Let me know what you think! Or just download them, throw them in a folder somewhere and forget about them; that works too.
  18. Bwahaha... I hardly ever go in here, but when I do, one thing I look for is fellow mashup artists. I was not, however, expecting zircon to have joined those ranks. I have to say, though - I like the last 4 minutes, but were the first two really necessary? By which I mean, you couldn't really hear anything that wasn't HBFS until about 2 minutes in - and if I wanted to listen to HBFS by itself, I'd rather listen to it in its original tempo and key. Perhaps radio edit version is in order?
  19. Well... Aquatic Ambiance is one of my favorite songs in any video game, ever, so when I say When Diddy's Gone is my favorite mix of them, I'm sort of biased. Runaway Dixie might be a better mix, but it doesn't have Aquatic Ambiance in it. You could mix utter crap with Aquatic Ambiance, and as long as it was in-key and in-synch crap, I'd like it. No, not In-Sync crap, though, hey, give me a pella .
  20. So, I already told this guy he was awesome, several times, in his thread over at GYBO. So I don't need to tell him that any more. Obviously, I'm the one that bugged him to post this here, as I'm pretty sure a lot of people here will get a huge kick out of this. I am, however, posting this for the benefit of people that are thinking, "rap pellas? That sounds kind of lame...." It's not lame. It is, in fact, certifiably awesome. Do yourself a favor and download this. P.S. Yes, this is the right forum. You did fine.
  21. I've heard many beta versions of this song, but I hadn't talked to Trenthian in ages, so it was a nice surprise seeing the final version. This is much better than any of the other versions I heard, and I liked them a lot already. Trenthian is awesome.
  22. Hey all! I know a couple other people here are fans of mashups, and in posting a new one I just finished tweaking, I realized I haven't posted about them here in a while. So, I'm fixing that now. The one I just finished a few seconds ago is one of my favorite A+Bs ever, and I'm calling it: 30 Seconds To Mars Isn't Driving Any More 30 Seconds to mars - Stronger (Kanye cover) v. Rob Dougan - I Am Not Driving Any More (instrumental) Other recent additions to the page include: Johnny Cash - Hurt v. Hard-Fi - Cash Machine (pella); Oasis - Wonderwall v. Eric Prydz - Call On Me; and Coldplay - The Scientist v. Miser - Zombie (The Cranberries cover). Feel free to look back at stuff I posted earlier, too!

  23. Not even 00FF00? That's pretty green! Good job, anyway, AD. I've never been much a fan of comic books, but I can imagine how excited I'd be if, for instance, a local bookstore were to sell old sci-fi novels for a dime each, and how much I'd spend there...
  24. Yeah. I don't care about ads at all, as long as: a. they aren't bright and flashing, and don't play sound without you asking them to, b. they don't disrupt the page layout (I've seen it before), c. they're never even slightly nsfw, and d. THEY DON'T HAVE VIRUSES IN THEM! That one's the kicker - I've seen multiple instances of ad services getting hacked or tricked into serving virus-loaded images, or javascript that tries to download something illegitimately onto the computers of everyone who sees it. That is never ok. But, given that you're getting ads from a reputable source (i.e. google), I don't think any of those concerns will be issues. So do what you like.
