  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. 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
  6. funny thing is, I was in a band 4 years ago with the same name...
  7. 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
  9. dude, have a happy birthday, hope you get something cool like an arrow dynamic spaghetti glass
  10. excellent. I am downloading right now. It's cool to see a project like this come through.
  11. well, there was a remix of "Another World" ("Out of This World" in the US), but it was taken down because it was "Too similar to the original", which is sad. Was one of my personal favorites. Here's a link to it http://doulifee.com//Storage/OC_Removed/Out_of_this_World_Open_Ending_OC_ReMoved.mp3 This one would be considered a "cover" (as far as ocremix goes), It's excellent quality, 80's synth music. When I first heard it I was confused at where this song was in the game, because at the time I had only played the SNES verson, but found out that they changed the music when they made ports.
  12. dude, I know it was mentioned, but "Another World" is a must play, I still play it all the way through every now and then, it was so epic for it's time, the cinematic cutscenes were amazing, there was nothing like it, still isn't. It's a sweet game of full of puzzles and action, there was nothing like recharging that lazer gun in those recharge rooms. The laser gun was awesome, making shields and frying aliens into chard black remains. Tons of fun. I must say though, I spent the majority of my dos life with Lucas Arts adventure games, how can anyone resist those babies.
  13. people are way too picky these days, spoiled gamers and their snobby opinions keep people from playing good games. Crisis Core is awesome... also, you can't really go wrong with either of the Burnout Games, tons of fun. And if you're into retro games, there's a whole bunch of neo geo bundles that are fun, looking forward to Samurai Showdown Anthology.
  14. by the way, most of the "ideal actor for jet" choices in this thread have been horrible. Jet is only suppose to be 36 years old, even though he seems older, (maybe 50's) in the series. He's balding, is a harry beast of a man and is a flippin badd ass. Jason Statham would be one of my picks (he fits the age, and I think he looks like a decent Jet). but for an "older" feel for Jet, you could do Jeff Bridges al la Obadiah Stane (Iron Man) But for some reason, I also like the idea of Liam Neeson as Jet, for some reason I feel like his personality fits jet's the best, and his voice is pri
  15. I'm still going to be positive towards this, it's old news now and people have settled down about it, but I'm going to have a good laugh if this movie turns out to be amazing. It seriously grossed me out how much junk smack talk this news got.
  16. Guilty Gear X "hard rock tracks"
  17. shai would not be good for ed, ed is a girl, although ed is sometimes confused about what sex she is, there is no confusion of what sex shai is. it would be cool if they didn't work on backstory at all, and just picked up the movie during a "missing" episode, like the anime movie. Somewhere I read they were going to use the "bloody eye" drug as a topic for plot. Which would make a good 2 hour plotline, it was a great early episode, and it was before the series had gone into the depth of the characters. Keanu does have the pretty boy look that spike needs, and thats why when I heard about
  18. I love subbed, but actually enjoyed the bebop dub
  19. I remember reading about the live action bebop movie on Japanator not long ago ( http://www.japanator.com/elephant/post.phtml?pk=8386 ), they had Johnny Depp as an ideal actor to fill spike's roll. I thought he'd be a good fit for spikes attitude, but not for body or hair (the hair is hella important). So I thought about it for a while after that and came to the conclusion that there really isn't an actor that could caputure spike, he's a character you can only dream up with a pencil and paper, which is the beauty of anime. Easily one of my favoirte fictional characters. Sounds like Keanu
  20. when it all comes down to it, is this movie an exploited money maker or are they doing this story because they want to create a piece of creative art? Iron Man could easily have been a horrible movie that everyone went to see because it's a "marvel" comic book with special effects just to make some dough. But people like Jon Favreau, Robert Downey Jr and Gwyneth Paltrow handled the film well and breathed creative life into it. Same with the Dark Knight, V for Vendetta etc... It's possible to do a good job with a game to movie adaptation, but most at this stage are just franchise money make
