  1. stevo that is not a muffin that is a cupcake how could you also those candles are clearly a fire hazard also hb to mistah north and kanthos!
  2. classical Since I frequently got composer's block in college, I'd make it a point to ask teachers what methods they used to kick it. One suggestion is to not write the whole piece from beginning to finish. Write the ending first, or save the intro until you've got something to introduce. Have a bunch of ideas you want to put in a piece but don't cement them in order; see if one works better before or after another. It's really easy to get stuck in a mindset of going from point A to point B, but you have to remember that's what the outcome will be. Nobody will know if you wrote the thing
  3. Why thank you Rexy! Yeah, Stevo has kind of saturated my wall, but a fresh face is always welcome!

  4. woof you need to provide new pairs of socks with each of your musics, sam. srsly.
  5. Ok, so these were the phrases that stuck out to me. The underline indicate the start of going nasal, and the bold is the sore thumb that sticks out the most. Depending on how you feel about my criticism and doing a re-record, 'Journeys unfold' could be another phrase that sticks out, but as of right now it doesn't go 'nasaly' enough to warrant redoing. I did the whole underline/bold thing to point out where I think the worst offenders were, and whether or not you would feel re-recording the whole phrase was necessary or just doing a selective word. My 2¢, for what you think it's worth af
  6. Aside from some lyrical 'nasalness' at times (which sounds like a stylistic thing to your singin'), sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet. It holds its own without everyone else, so I can't wait to hear what they contribute!
  7. The sax is easy enough, but it sounds like you have an alto soundfont going on. Is that what you're looking for, or do you not have a preference for the timbre of the sax? An alto playing in its low range would sound different than a tenor playing it its high range.
  8. Yeah, that's a really big stretch...but hey; who wouldn't want to be related to someone like Mahler, even if that remotely? Hopefully this will get some Beyoncé fans to at least check some of his symphonies, for however long they can last not listening to something by an orchestra...
  9. Beat Epic Mickey four times in a row to earn every pin. and also to NEVER PLAY THAT GAME AGAIN. Also I've unlocked everything in the Smash Bros. Brawl Vault twice on two different Wiis, and I haven't really played the game since then so I guess that could count maybe?
  10. This month has us with an extremely broad theme, Games with Water! Basically, any game that has water in it is good for remixing (so you can remix Wily Stage 1 for the umpteenth time cuz Bubble Man is all about da agua). Pretty much every game under the sun is elligible, so you can finally do that mix you've been putting off due to busyness/lazyness! The bonus this time around is having a jazz influence to your mix, which I explain more in the OverLooked thread. Also, there is an XO's Challenge this month! If the game you select has a dedicated water theme, such as Bubble Man mentioned ab
  11. One day your 160kbps Blue Lightning mix will be available on OCR...but only when they up the hosting to 10MB BIRTHDAY

  13. Maybe he should set the bar lower because we wouldn't even accept this over at OLR. BIRD SHIT ON A BLACK SHOE...actually maybe the deku palace one maybe
  14. I think you should just have a more complex drum fill for the transition to the 8-bit section. other than that, very nooooiiiice
  15. Belated birthdays = LEFTOVER CAKE (assuming it's not all gone)
  16. This month is the return of a recurring theme we have in the competition, BEER/EAR Month! Basically, we follow the rules of the old contests BEER and EAR (whose history can be read in the rules thread) and have certain songs to remix instead of letting you choose your own. The songs are as follows, in case you didn't want to go all the way over to OLR to hear them: Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge - Breegul Beach Mega Man Legends 2 - Nino Ruins The bonus is having a dubstep wobble in your mix, regardless of genre (flute trio with bass drops? yes plz).
  17. 4 tha h4t3rz Seriously, at least educating us about the days of the week and shining light on the constant turmoil that is selecting a seat in which to travel in was something different, albeit horrible. The following are the actual lyrics to the bridge: Congrats, you're a white Lil Wayne. But then again, the public eats that up for three square meals, so good for her for not pushing any envelope with her newfound stardom.
  18. So after a little delay, we have our new theme! Any game in the Breath of Fire series is eligible for remixing this month. The bonus is inappropriate lyrics, either in subject matter or in juxtaposition to the music. It's also our fiftieth competition! That's like a milestone or something right?
  19. Quite alright my good man; real life is a cruel mistress that must be swooned from time to time.
  20. Mixing has ended for this month, and the songs have been posted here: http://sites.google.com/site/xenonodyssey/olrmageddon If you'd like to vote, please register at the forums at OverLooked and spam 10 posts on our board! Maybe someone will even respond, and we'll get some activity once again...
  21. Yes I must hear the sweet serenades of the bus that is LOCO!!
