  1. Yeah, I didn't think that pretty much anyone from those days would actually still be around, much less remember what I said (except maybe Pretzel because of some shit I said to him to get a week-long ban). It was just one of those things where I was looking through my activity history and was thinking "but surely I wasn't like this for the other three pages of activity - okay two pages - okay WOW". Going through and editing in addenda to each of those comments felt like a cheap way to sneak in apologies, and I wanted to just get one big apology out there for anyone who might need to see i
  2. Okay, that's what I figured. It just kinda took me be surprised, haha. Yeah, now that you mention it, people really were just generally meaner in places like forums and chat rooms back then. Perhaps a lot of that has just moved to Twitter and Facebook these days. You too, huh? Were we pretty much all just teenagers or in our early 20s back then? Kind of incredible to think of everything that was accomplished considering how young we were. I don't know how active I'll be on OCR (forums or otherwise) now or in the future, but it feels good to know that I'm welcome.
  3. Okay, honestly not quite the response I expected, so I'll take these one at a time. 1. I don't want anyone's wives. That's some serious commitment, and I think it might be illegal. 2. Non-consensual concubines are called sex slaves these days, and that shit is bad. Bad bad. <- not being playful about this one 3. However, if these were consensual concubines (I assume that is straight person talk for pup play?), not my kink. 4. I'm going to strongly suggest that we talk about slaves and slavery only in very serious contexts and in very sensitive ways, as they are topics of
  4. Hey everyone, I used to be a semi-active member of the forums, and thanks to the incredible support I've received from @Liontamer about updating my name on this website (both my forum name - formerly artemisjaeger - and my actual name as a remixer/human - formerly Kevin Stephens), I have been looking through my past activity on this forum. I've reached an inescapable conclusion. I was a toxic member of the community. I won't go into the details here - I've edited almost every one of my posts to add an apology at the end, so you can just open my profile and look through my activity if
  5. When I saw another SoE arrangement by Shnabubula up on the page, I threw my hands up in excitement. Very happy me. The song is amazing, and perhaps even more so than usual - they're always fantastic, but this stands out.
  6. Me like. The arrangement isn't gaudy or show-offish, which is the biggest problem I have with the majority of piano pieces and guitar pieces, and with both together, I would have expected some musicianship masturbation odyssey thing. But nope. Also, the tone on the piano is making me feel all melty. In a good way.
  7. Fantastic work. Dhsu and Mustin, you two are excellent together.
  8. Gorgonian! I saw your name on the front page and was like, "YES!" You were easily one of the (if not the singular) most promising orchestral arranger back on VGMix2, so it is incredibly exciting to see that you've continued your great arrangements. That said, this is an exceptional piece. I feel like it really managed to avoid a lot of the cliches that most VG orchestral arrangements are prone to, which is a huge plus in my book. I think what really does it for me is that you managed to get a very full sound here - phenomenal orchestration. In fact, if you wouldn't mind, I'd love to see a copy
  9. Another Soundscape is clearly one of the finest artists on this site. The production on this is flawless.
  10. It's sloppy in a few places, but certainly nothing extreme. As a whole, this is a fantastic take on the source material - they take the melodies and make them sound like they were always supposed to be jazz. Very impressive. I do agree that there's a bit too much solo wankery, though, and SuperBuckJazz did do the same thing (but better). BUT I think that should be a challenge rather than a criticism - if this group keeps it up, I fully believe that they will far exceed anyone's expectations. Edit: Sorry for being an ass about this. My comments were out of line, and I was rightly call
  11. This song would not be half as good with pitched percussion or melody of any kind. Just my two cents.
  12. Too repetitive my butt. This is fantastic work - precisely what I have been waiting to hear on this site for a long, long time. Best piece in months - maybe even a year. Okay, okay, perhaps the best piece here period. Maybe. It's definitely up there. And wouldn't you know it? It almost got shot down.
