  1. Microsoft is okay if you like unstable operating systems. Windows is a C++ clone of Macintosh's OS. Try reading the Apple v. Microsoft opinion sometime. It was Microsoft openly admitted in court that they stole Mac's design features, but their defense was that they had the license to do so. Microsoft scammed Apple with an agreement that Apple's idiot legal team didn't read in 1985. Also, I don't know what your sister and her husband did to their iPods to make them break so easily, but I still have mine from early 2007, and it works great. Anyhow, we have Steve Jobs to thank for the GUI being available on PCs - Windows included - so I hope Apple has a great backup plan because last time he left, the company approached bankruptcy. EDIT: Incorrect. Xerox's GUI had solved some of the problems that Apple was having in developing the Lisa, but it was anything but a carbon copy. At most, Xerox's system inspired Apple's development team to keep pushing ahead with the project by showing them that their problems could be solved. Also, Xerox didn't exactly "give up" on it. The top brass at Xerox weren't interested in anything being developed that didn't have anything to do with photocopiers.
  2. What he said. I still liked it quite a bit, though!!
  3. I like it. I think you'll probably get some criticism on the polish/samples, but the arrangement is actually pretty good. I was getting pretty impatient waiting for more GRMRB mixes, and this one doesn't disappoint!
  4. The 2010 GRMRB Album was cancelled, unfortunately: http://ocremix.org/forums/showthread.php?t=31160
  5. Nice style choice. A bit different than your usual stuff, but I like it. The actual arrangement wasn't terribly risky, though I'll leave it to your brother to give actual critiques on it, though.
  6. Unfortunately, with the email sent to all OCR members urging them to vote for Jillian Aversa, you are effectively competing against the officially OCR endorsed participant in the competition. Thanks to this endorsement, her lead seems almost insurmountable. Voted for you anyway though.
  7. I always thought the Godzilla and Gamera episodes were some of the funniest, but part of that may be because I was so into kaiju as a kid. 212 - Godzilla vs. Megalon 213 - Godzilla vs. the Sea Monster 302 - Gamera 304 - Gamera vs. Barugon 308 - Gamera vs. Gaos 312 - Gamera vs. Guiron 316 - Gamera vs. Zigra
  8. I meant to ask you earlier: do you have the lyrics to your GRMRB 2011 entry "Encapsulated Heat"?

  9. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Lanterns In short, they are part of a newer "emotional spectrum" group of characters related to Green Lanterns Red = Rage Orange = Avarice Yellow = Fear (Think Sinestro) Green = Willpower Blue = Hope Indigo = Compassion Violet = Love (Star Sapphire Corp)
  10. LOL "What's a samoflange?" Nice obscure reference in this episode... EDIT: YouTube link:
  11. Haven't gone through all of them, but #17 is Robot from the Lost in Space movie, and #51 is Zeta from the Zeta Project (DC Animated Universe TV series)
  12. How's about people head over to the Exhibition match thread now and start making requests (or better yet, remixes) for artists they want to see do an exhibition match?
  13. Don't want to ruin this week's episode, but the ending is fucking sweet. I like it a lot so far. From the various hints they've dropped throughout the show, I get the impression that these Thundarians are the descendants of the original ThunderCats, or at least some loosely interpreted version of them. Really looking forward to future episodes
  14. Okay, how's this for on-topic... What was your hardest vote in the competition? Mine was the first round match up between TheGuitahHeroe and Gario. I'm fairly selective with the music that I listen to repeatedly, and I still listen to both of these on a regular basis. I still don't think that I'd be able to conclusively pick one over the other, it really just depends on the mood that I'm in.
  15. Looking for anyone to remix anything from the Godzilla NES game. the Jupiter theme and Saturn theme are great in particular, but anything would be awesome.
  16. This, like your other work, is really great. I've only just become aware of your stuff since the GRMRB, but I'm really liking what you've produced so far. Did you ever end up submitting that Southern Face Shrine remix from Zelda: Link's Awakening? One of my personal favorites
  17. You shouldn't, because your mix was awesome. Your loss was one of many examples of situations where both mixers should have advanced.
  18. Yeah, I have to agree. I think both mixes were pretty good, and improvements over your previous entries in the competition, but SilvernixSP's mix's transitions could have stood to be a bit smoother. It was nice that it surprised you when you heard the other song pop up in the middle of the other theme, and I wonder if there's some way to preserve that while also smoothing out the transitions. Keep bringing out those mixes! More mixers need to get involved!!
  19. Mega Man and Bass was never off limits (Ground Man has always been chosen), but good question on the Stardroids
  20. Thanks, everyone. Now it's time for me to get some actual work done (meaning stuff that I will get paid for)
  21. Let me know if I forgot any of the mixes EDIT: Apparently I was bored.
  22. After the tragic drowning of Heat Man, DarkeSword embarked on a journey to the sun to foil the Toad Gang’s heist. He packed some ice cream nachos as a snack, and was accompanied by Excalibur, a sheep in skull’s clothing who had just recovered from flash warts. In space, Excalibur said, “Gee, it’s hard [to] breathe.” Darkesword replied, :-/ Along the way, the two encountered the nefarious Bots of Rage. Luckily, Excalibur brought along his WoodChipper, a powerful, if not slightly nostalgically 80’s, weapon. “Bombs away!” Excalibur exclaimed, unleashing the might of the WoodChipper, a virtual walking weapons unit. “GnB!! GnB!!” the WoodChipper sounded as it encapsulated heat and scorched ice. “I’m sending you to where sheep go when they die!” shouted Excalibur, with such force that he was emitting bleats of lightning. With that, a mighty magnetized spring punch obliterated the bots of rage. “Ha! I’m blowin’em outta the water!” said Excalibur. “You know,” DarkeSword said to Excalibur. “You really spring my bubble.” “With you, my adamantium slinky goes to space.” responded Excalibur However, their moment of platonic camaraderie was interrupted by jungle sparks. One Bot of Rage had survived: the Insulator!! “Jumping flash!” exclaimed DarkeSword. “It’s pure simplicity how I survived,” said Insulator. “I’m groundbased!” “Now it’s time to slice the snake!” Insulator said threateningly. “We’re hardly clubbed to death yet!!” responded DarkeSword. Then DarkeSword made a deep impact in Insulator’s power core using his Switchblade Fangs. “It’s apocalypse now for you, Insulator!” said DarkeSword wryly. Just as DarkeSword and Excalibur were celebrating, however, there was a total eclipse of the sun. “The Toad Gang!” they both cried. “Let’s spring into the inferno!” Using a space dirtbike, they hurried to the sun, which didn’t take long because there isn’t any air friction in space. Arriving at the sun, they caught the Toad Gang in the middle of stealing all of the jewels from the Suncoils, which was causing the sun to burn out. In fact, the Toad Gang had already captured the Thunderstone, the Shocked Quartz, and most importantly, the Diamond (after all, a diamond lasts forever). The only jewel remaining was the Evolving Emerald. Upon seeing the WoodChipper, though, the Toad Gang abandoned their loot and fled. They didn’t leave completely empty handed, though: they had taken the Wonderful Shadows by the Electric Sheep Orchestra, a powerful device when combined with the Order of the Groove. The Order is located in Blackout Tower back on Earth, and DarkeSword knew of the dire consequences of the Toad Gang gaining the power from combining Shadows with the Order. Excalibur and DarkeSword, after restoring the Suncoils, pursued the Toad Gang to Blackout Tower, deep underwater in the Ocean for Two. Although the Toad Gang had sealed the Tower shut, DarkeSword and Excalibur met up with the Lady in the Water, who helped the two into the fortress using her Windswept Bubbles. “And this is the way we crash the party!!” yelled DarkeSword and Excalibur as they entered the Tower. They were too late, though, arriving just in time to see the Toad Gang with the Wonderful Shadows plug into the Order of the Groove. This unleashed Serpentine Static, a snake composed of pure electricity, powered by the nearly limitless energy of the Power Plant in the Kingdom. The monster used Slithering Shock, which turned the Tower into a veritable shocking sewer, destroying the WoodChipper and nearly killing Excalibur. Enraged, DarkeSword exclaimed “I’m gonna slice the snake!!” which, after some overly dramatic exclamations, he did using his Switchblade Fangs. This was to no effect, though, since Serpentine Static still had all the power of the Power Plant. DarkeSword then realized what he needed to do: “I need to pull the plug,” meaning disconnect the Wonderful Shadows from the Order of the Groove. Because of his bubbling adrenaline, DarkeSword prevailed. With the Toad Gang conveniently destroyed by Serpentine Static’s dying explosion, DarkeSword was able to check on his comrade Excalibur. “How do you feel?” he asked. “I’m thirsty.” Excalibur responded. “Well, it’s a hard day’s night,” DarkeSword said in reply. “Let’s find some summer shade to relax in with a drink.” And that they did. With Heat Man’s death avenged, DarkeSword was able to rest easy. In the end, everyone learned an important lesson: Save a Horse (Ride a Transformer).
  23. That isn't the first time he's said that about a mix in this compo. See here. That's the way he's spoken throughout the competition, so I don't think he was being specifically harsh towards you in his manner of speaking. He was, though, publicly registering his disappointment with the quality your submissions of this year's competition (which I personally disagree with - most of your tracks were excellent). I think his doing so in his usual edgy style made it very much seem like a personal attack on you, which it really wasn't, as far as I can tell. Still, everyone's entitled to his/her own opinion, I guess.
