    I'm a born again Christian, I used to spend quite a lot of time back in the day making arrangements of old game tunes, I don't come out with stuff very often, seems like once every few years now, but it's a fun change of pace. I used to take it very serious, but I just like to have fun when I work on arrangements. I'm currently involved with various musicians engaging in spontaneous worship. It's quite a trip cause you never know where you'll end up.

  1. Creativity starts with an idea in your head, then you work it out and manefest it in reality. It’s fun to think of how different compositions will sound in different styles. It’s no less creative than coming up with melodies and rhythms. Just a different expression of creativity. If you make a door and then carve a unique design on the door no one would think that wasn’t creative and unique to you. But you didn’t come up with the idea of a “door” on your own, you just remixed it.
  2. Love this, it's like a cat purring on your lap, soothing...
  3. I thought it was pretty awesome. Had lots of fun. I've never really been someone who breaks a movie down to discover faults. I like to take it in as a whole and walk away, hopefully with something, Cumberbatch was awesome. Great actor, very freaky. Actually liked him better than the original Kahn in some ways. This Kahn really seemed like he was truly superior. Star Trek is one of my greatest loves in fiction, TNG being at the top of the list. Honestly I think JJ's Star Trek movies really complement the big screen better than previous incarnations. However I think if you put
  4. Hey, Jaxx. Just wanted to say that your Ninja Gaiden work for DOD is one of those tracks I can't stop listening over and over again. You did a really good job. If it had been up to me I would have given you the first place.

  5. watching the ending of crisis core made me feel less sad about Aerith in the original. It's especially how Zack and Aerith interact in Advent Children

    I miss arcades

    I live in Portland OR, there's this sweet arcade downtown I go to quite often (mainly to play street fighter games against people in the flesh, there aint nothing like it) called Ground Kontrol. Flippin tight, has every classic arcade game you can think of, mainly 70's 80's and 90's, not too many new machines. It turns into a bar at 5, at the bar you can play nes games. Awesome atmosphere, they have a stage where they have shows and "Rock Band Tuesday", where tons people come to get smashed and play rock band, flippin hilarious. Best arcade I've ever been to. Too bad next gen online
  7. funny thing is, I was in a band 4 years ago with the same name...
  8. my first arrangement. http://www.ocremix.org/remix/OCR00183/ this one wouldn't have been accepted today, It's pretty gross My latest arrangemnet. http://dod.vgmix.com/past/mag7/05tie-jaxx-StormOfProgear-Harvest-DoD.mp3 this one would probably not get posted either, too close to being a "cover". been having fun with music since 96 I decided I'm not going to arrange music to OC standards so as to get accepted these days. If I arrange something that in the end fits the standards then I'll toss it to the judges. I just like having fun these days. I hope people don't stress too much about

    Saw it, loved it. Haven't read the book (yet) so I'm coming from a different perspective than most of the contributors of this thread. You could easily say that it was slow going in many parts, it's pace was set up to help you really enjoy the climax, without the needed character development it would be hard to see why the characters made the choices they did and. I thought the ending was awesome, wrapped up everything into a nice bow, even sounds better than the original ending, seems like it possibly gave some characters more depth in the end while maintaining the same moral points that
  10. dude, have a happy birthday, hope you get something cool like an arrow dynamic spaghetti glass
