     Makes sense means that it is logical and follows a system that is consistent with both itself and other songs in the same style.

    Ok, thanks for the clarification.

    Though my eyes tend to glaze over after a bit (Antecedent Consequent Period... I mean... really), I do find it interesting when the practical application of music theory is discussed. For instance I saw a 12 min video on FF7's battle Fanfare and it broke down the different parts that made it a "compelling" piece of music. 


    It sounds like the creator of this video has a similar idea of theory to your own. But I am kind of curious if you agree with his conclusions.

  2. Informative. Thank you.

    I do have a question though.

    You state the following as an analogy:


    You're learning about the plays of Shakespeare, but it's communicated that the traits that were used in Shakespeare's style of writing are the rules that dictate how books are written, and if you don't follow them, you're wrong.

    Then you state: 


    If you know that writing a song using the form "Intro, verse, chorus, verse, chorus, bridge, chorus, chorus" makes your song make sense,

    Are songs that are not written with the above form "wrong" or are they "not songs"? To me (a layman) it sounds like this is the same as saying that Hemingway's books are not books. Can you explain the difference, or clarify what "make sense" means?

  3. Just saw the movie and I enjoyed it. I would personally classify it as a good movie in the conventional sense. It had every element I would want in an enjoyable movie. There were some areas that could have used a little polish of course, but it was definitely a good movie in my book.

    You mean this sort of soundtrack for Godzilla?


    Yes. This soundtrack was/is "on fire" (as the kids say these days). Each of the planets and most of the bosses had really catchy tunes that somehow fit the scenario just right.

    There's some nostalgia bias here because this is one of the few games my brother and I played and beat together when we were little. But even re-listening to it now, the tracks still sounds good and it would be sweet to see them get some remix love.

    I know for a fact that I wouldn't be able to keep up as an album director for something like this though. So I am content to dream about it for now.

    I always personally would love to see a Godzilla NES album, but I have zero technical music expertise myself, so it's not going to happen anytime soon, sadly...

    Thirded... for emphasis. If I had the time, I would really try to get this going myself.

    I'm afraid Super Mario Odyssey may go on this list for me.  One of the moons is locked behind a jump-rope minigame that I'm finding just impossible.  You need to jump 100 times, and I've tried on and off for at least half an hour and my record is 56.  I understand there's some sort of volleyball minigame later on that's even harder.  So I may be looking at a personal maximum of 798/800 moons, and if I know for sure there's even one I can't get, I probably won't bother with some others if they start looking to be tedious.

    Listen for the audio cue.

    I think its around the 50 - 60 mark, but the timing will become static. At that point, one of the ladies holding the rope will call out when you should jump, and if you tap the button (short hop) on that cue, you can hit your 100 relatively easily. 

  7. The goal was totally achievable. We only needed 100,000 people to scan in once a day for 10 days. And you can find pokemon (currently) unavailable anywhere else. So the incentive is already there.

    TD hit the nail on the head with "most people I know that play it didn't participate because they felt it wasn't worth the effort" . Laziness is our adversary.

    On the flip side, I can understand why a pot of FC may not be appealing to some folks. If they threw in an egg with a random Gen 1 Starter or something like that, maybe we'd see a higher overall turnout.



  8. Scanning the codes gives you points. Once you reach a certain point limit, a rare pokemon will appear somewhere in the world and you'll have an hour to go and catch it.


    You have a maximum of 10 scans that recharge at a rate of 1 every 2 hours.


    The pokemon that appears isn't necessarily related to the codes you scan in. My first was a normal Litwick after I scanned in a bunch of the shiny starters and Alolan themed pokemon.
