  1. If I'm still into VGM several years from now I'd be happy to consider doing a Maori translation (indigenous Polynesian language of New Zealand, I plan to start learning it after immigrate to there this year.).
  2. Well hello everyone, It's been many years since I last posted here... I hope this post doesn't violate any rules (I read the sticky at the top of this forum, and I think this should be okay. But if not then please let me know what I violated.) I am currently selling almost my entire VGM collection on Ebay. A lot of it is Final Fantasy, Mario and other stuff. All of them are first editions. I even have a brand new sealed Game Concert 2 album and a brand new sealed Project Majestic Mix Gold Edition. Everything has a bid price and a buy it now price. I can ship using first class or priority to domestic US addresses. I will also ship internationally to anywhere in the world using USPS international priority. Domestic or international insurance is also available for an extra fee (as listed on each auction page). The link for all of them is here: http://shop.ebay.com/tcgterry/m.html?_dmd=1&_in_kw=1&_ipg=50&_sop=12&_rdc=1 If there are any questions please post here, send me a PM, or ask a question via Ebay. Thanks very much everyone.
  3. Hello Everyone, I was wondering if anyone could help me with something. I have searched extensively for transliterated and translated lyrics to all of the songs for Super Mario Bros. Special; this is is a vocal album consisting of both songs and drama tracks. More information on it is at http://www.vgmdb.net/db/albums.php?id=535 . Can anyone give me a link to where I can find transliterated Roomaji (Japanese written in the Roman Alphabet) and/or English or any other language translations for the tracks on this album? Or if there is anyone out there who wants to translate them for me that would be great-- and you would be translating them for anyone else out there who is searching for them, as long as I could have your permission to submit them to various VGM lyric sites (with full credit given to whoever translates them, of course.) If you can help me out reply to this post or PM me or email me-- markterry@[NOSPAMMYSPAM]crosskoru.com Thank you very much everybody.

  5. Thanks for the tip-- I've found quite a few copies of my sealed albums there in MP3 format. I'll also be trying VGM Central on Direct Connect. I wish that beggars could be choosers, but alas it isn't so. Oh well !
  6. Hello Fellow VGM Lovers, This is probably an unusual request, but I have an interesting favor to ask for those of you who have used, unsealed and genuine VGM CDs. I have recently begun purchasing VGM albums once again, and I have decided that I will archive all of them as FLAC files (see http://flac.sourceforge.net and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flac for more Information on FLAC). I have been extremely fortunate to acquire genuine sealed first prints of many old albums. Ripping the used CDs is no problem. However the CDs that are still sealed I intend for them to stay sealed, as they will be worth more in that condition (Recently, I had the opportunity to choose between an FF V Dear Friends used sealed album first print edition, and I got the sealed one, which cost about US$30.00 more than the used one at http://www.vgmworld.com .). For all of the albums listed in this post I have genuine copies manufactured by the original publishers in Japan; none of them are bootlegs from Ever Anime, Son May, or any of those other cheap, crappy scam artists (none of that 'buy it now for 5.99' stuff on Ebay, either!). So... Here is what I am asking, and it may get me some flames (but so be it...), because it probably will appear odd and/or suspicious to many of you. But, anyway, here it goes... Can anyone rip me copies of these sealed albums? They would need to be ripped as FLAC (not MP3, as I need a lossless format) copies. I can post or email photos of me holding these albums, if anyone wants actual proof that I have indeed purchased them. If you are willing to help me with this I would ask that you only rip copies from genuine CDs, not bootlegs, due to bootlegs often having problems with the sound quality; to ensure the CD is genuine you can look at the catalog numbers on the back or spine of the album/CD case (usually a number like 'PSCN-5012'). You can look up catalog numbers to see if they are genuine at http://www.vgmdb.net. The albums I would like FLAC file copies made of (along with their catalog numbers for different prints) are below.: Dear Friends: Music from Final Fantasy Original Soundtrack (TGCS-2726) The Black Mages II The Skies Above (UPCH-1377, SQEX-10111 Time & Space - A Tribute to Yasunori Mitsuda (OUS-001) More Friends: Music from Final Fantasy Original Soundtrack (TGCS-2727) The Black Mages (SSCX-10080, SQEX-10019) All Sounds of Final Fantasy I & II (H25X-20015 , X22Z-1014, PSCR-5251) Final Fantasy IV Celtic Moon (N30D-006, PSCN-5017, NTCP-5017) Seiken Densetsu 2 Original Sound Version (N25D-019, SQ107PSCN-5030, NTCP-5030) Chrono Trigger Original Sound Version (PSCN-5021~3 , NTCP-5021~3) Seiken Densetsu 3 Original Sound Version (PSCN-5026~8, PSCN-5026~ Final Fantasy Love Will Grow (PSCN-5041, NTCP-5041) Square Enix Party 2007 Special Disc (No catalog Number - More Information at http://www.vgmdb.net/db/albums.php?id=7423) Final Fantasy V Dear Friends (N30D-017, NTCP-5018, PSCN-5018 ) The Black Mages III: Darkness and Starlight (DERP-10002) Game Music Concert ~ The Best Selection (WPCL-560) Orchestral Game Concert ~ The Best Selection 2 (WPCL-709) Distant Worlds: Music From Final Fantasy (AWR 10101) There are two ways you could make copies. One, you could burn them onto a CD or DVD, and I would arrange to pay for shipping and the cost of the blank disc and sleeve/case (or I could snail mail you a blank disc with a paper sleeve). Or two, I could set up an online account and directory using my PowWeb account, and you could log into that using an FTP client or a web-based interface to upload the files, so that I could then download them. I would not expect anyone to write ID3 or any other sort of tags for them-- I would just ask that each file is saved with the album's catalog number and track title (for example, 'PSCN-5012_01.FLAC'). Whichever way you would decide to do this I would not make the files available to anyone else; if they were uploaded I would delete them from the server as soon as they were downloaded onto my computer and backed up onto DVD-R discs; I certainly do not want to facilitate the illegal downloading of music (although the point of this post is not to debate the morality or immorality of that). As far as I know, asking people to do this for me is in no way illegal or in violation of any copyrights, seeing as I do now own the original albums. As well, if anyone out there wants me to do this same thing for them I would be more than happy to help you with it, for any albums you may have that are sealed that I have opened/used copies of-- just let me know which ones you want copies of and I will let you know if I can rip it for you or not. This would apply even to people who aren't able to help me with this for my own sealed CDs. For anyone who can help me or point me towards sites/people who could help me I would really appreciate it, and I would do whatever I could to return to the favor for those who help me with this. Thank you for whoever even decides to read this far into this post, and especially thank you to anyone who helps me with this.
  7. DoD should have a Kid Icarus month! That game had A-W-E-S-O-M-E music, and it's largely overlooked here on OC Remix and other VGM sites.
  8. Check out this Ebay auction...: http://cgi.ebay.com/Nintendo-Mini-Famicon-CD-Audio-20-titles-Mario-Zelda_W0QQitemZ170211010478QQihZ007QQcategoryZ307QQrdZ1QQssPageNameZWD1VQQcmdZViewItem It's time to ask Santa what I want for Christmas this year... It is so NOT FAIR that I don't make $500.00 an hour! Maybe if I ask Grandma and Grandpa to borrow some money... Can I ask anyone out there for a 'donation?...' Hey Mr Boss dude, can I please have a raise? How about some stock options?... This is going to be one nutty bidding war! Hey, Maybe DJ Pretzel can but it and have it as a contest item?... Then I can figure put how to win the contest... yeah, that's a good idea! Good thinking Aotearoa! [Yes, I am being facetious/sarcastic/silly!].
