  1. Say thankee. Also, thank you for respecting my opinion, pixietricks. Now then. Moving along.
  2. I'm halfway through my third listen thus far, and it's just not doing it. Not even for nostalgia's sake, as there are better mixes already up on the site. Anyway, I'm impressed with the scope, guys, it just appears as though I'm the one guy who didn't enjoy it. That'll be all out of me. Thanks for listening to my contrarian perspective.
  3. I realize precisely what these are. This has been a site that fosters that kind of creativity for eight years (if memory serves). I have been an active listener for six of those eight. And I thought I was pretty clear in my post that what I wanted wasn't a direct copy of the song, but some heart and soul, which was lacking. The simple instrumentals did end up pleasing me, and the last three tracks were quite good (Jovette's being the most audacious and amazing track of the entire thing), but it all just wasn't needed. Poke around in the archives and you'll find more original, better constructe
  4. Well, I'm about halfway through Disc 3 and I have to say... I'm just not feeling it. The scope of this project is incredible and the sheer amount of contributors is a wonder. The names involved are so full of talent and originality, and many of them have been favorites of mine since before I arrived on the boards. That said, I don't know why this project just feels so lackluster, so soulless. It's big, it covers a lot of ground, but it's just not incredible. That's not to say that it's all been bad, however. Thus far the standouts (both positively and negatively) have been: BGC's first trac
  5. I didn't mean to let this fall back so far... 7.1 earthquake in Taiwan messed up our internet. I see there's some interest. Thank you for the responses so far. I would love to see something come of this.
  6. New Year's Even in Hong Kong was ridiculous. People have been trampled to death in the past so they regulate it as extremely as possible. In order to get on the bar street you have to wait in a miles long line, packed full of people. An estimated 400,000 turned out into the streets, and at least 20,000 were packed into these four square blocks. We almost didn't make it and I got a little upset. Last year I missed it because my roomate broke his ankle, so we spent it low key in the ex-pat neighborhood. So I was more than ready for the chaos. And it was chaotic. We finally made the bar street
  7. About this time last year I found myself in China listening to Shael Riley's Toybox. Nights would frequently find me on my balcony, glass of whiskey in hand, listening to the final song on the album, Snow, Love and Sludge. The song itself is wonderful, a very simple piece of music played over simple narration about a period of life and the meaning of that existance. It's a slow, subtle, beautiful piece, and it's one that got me thinking. It's been five years since I first discovered this website, and through the connections I've made here I've discovered so many talented musicians and the co
  8. Congealed blood is not something I can get behind. I had it hot pot sometime last year and... eww. I'll try anything, but that was one thing that I will never consume again. It's gelatinous yet... somehow sturdy? And then you put it in the soup and it maintains its texture but it gets hot and... It's gross. Intestine has the worst texture and you know exactly what it is while you're eating it. It doesn't taste bad, in fact it's quite good. But you have to deal with the fact that poo went through there. It's tough and rubbery and not appitizing at all. Lung is pretty terrible as well. It's to
  9. Your run is innapropriate. That is the best word for it. Hours of my life dedicated to that game and all I managed to find was seventy some percent. Secret rooms under spikes? Insane-O leaps and credit collections? No death? FIFTEEN MINUTES? Very nice, sir. I have finally seen every room in the game.
  10. This is exactly why I love Shnabalabulanabana's work. It's always amazing and always, in the words of burn out dirty hippies, "out there". Shnabubula always manages to take interesting pieces and then translate then into something that I am never quite ready to listen to but am always ready to have. I must admit that I rarely string up all of his mixes and let them run. In fact I rarely ever pull just one of them up. But, like the copy of Incubus (starring William Shatner and filmed entirely in Esperanto) on my DVD shelf, I am always glad that I COULD listen to it. With this piece in particul
  11. I've been a fan of Jeremy Robson for years now and have yet to be disappointed by his work. While this piece is more whimsical and perhaps more disjointed than his previous pieces, the individual sections work so very well that the slight flaws are easily overlooked. Robson is a master arranger and composer, and this latest work hopefully will provide a little insight to the work of this man. I urge you all to check out his other pieces, as they all manage to maintain complex and emotional orchestral pieces. Nice work, Jeremy. Keep on keeping on.
  12. zwitra? I know you left remixing for a short time, but I beg of you. Please do not leave music again. I have loved your pieces since I first heard yours all those years ago. Since then there has been no other who has matched your skill in simply making me feel good. Many mixers make me happy, but only a few of them actually deliver on a specific feeling. You are one of them. There is something about your music that always makes me feel better. If you decide at some point you are done with remixing, so be it. But please never be done with music altogether. Please. I Heart zwitra.
  13. God. Damnit. Stupid School. So... when are you coming back? Larry? You ARE coming back, right? Right?
  14. I've been loving the original version of this mix for months now (the nine minute long track) and I have to say that this piece still impresses me to no end. I was very pleased to discover that this OCR Edit manages to maintain every aspect of the original without losing anything whatsoever. I have had it on my Walkman for at least four months and I end up listening to it every third or fourth walk I embark upon. This song is amazingly beautiful and only helps to amplify the beauty of the natural world that exists around me as I travel. The dialouge from the game is used quite well and the t
