BadAss: Boss Themes: Volume I - History

Recommended Posts

Jeez, this sucks and rocks at the same time...

I just moved across town, and I don't even have a phone line hooked up yet. None of my neighbors have wifi, either. I'm posting this from my library, to say, for the next week or so, I still won't be around.

The good part? High-Speed Internet. Oh yeah. ...In a week or so... *Cough*

Anyway, what I would want from my co-coordinators, who both have to learn to share their temporary status as a duo, try and work out contacting The Minibosses, The Advantage, The NESkimos, MegaDriver.... bla bla bla... whoever else, too. Too many VG music cover bands to count. I haven't listened to most of them, though. I mean, if we're looking for someone to get on the project... might as well go for the big dogs. No point in not trying.

Maybe the public forums themselves weren't the best place to post that... oh well...

Too bad no one from the minibosses' forums ever really got back to me.

Anyway, point is, I don't really know how to get home from the library yet, and I'm walking... so... I've got an hour ahead of me to find my way around town, I guess. But for the most part, I can't do this every day. See everyone in a week or so!

Aaaaaaaaand... I'm back. Still on dial-up, but high-speed's coming Saturday.

I can see my cohorts have done their job... or not. I think, rather than go do it myself, I'll dump that small bit of responsibility on them. It's not hard, really.

POCKETMAN, you should now have access to the forums.

Good to see everyone returning after absences, too. How's it going, everybody?

I would like to announce that I am still alive. Through a series of unfortunate events I haven't had time to post lately, but that changes...now! Or tomorrow. I'm actually going to bed now.

I believe I have actually emailed a couple of those VGBands, without response, but I'd have to check my outbox to confirm which. Anyway, tomorrow. I am still getting over a cold. I need sleep.

Also, with everyone springing back out of the woodwork, do you all remember what you're working on? I'm still doing the Stage 2-2 boss from Hello Kitty World, right?

At this point I think I'll just do the right thing and officially drop from this project. Sorry I couldn't finish a whole track for you guys. I really haven't felt the love or motivation for this project (when you working for free YES it's important). It's complicated, but I think not being listed on the project or getting any feedback whatsoever for my mix (the right one) from leadership speaks for itself. Call me a whiner if you want, it'll just prove my point. Hope to return to ocr eventually. Again, my apologies and best wishes on the album.

If that's the way you feel, I can't ask you to change your mind. I'm sure I speak for all the coordinators when I say I'm sorry to see you leave. Good luck in the future James.

Is there still help being wanted and if so what bosses are you waiting to have claimed or can we decide our own and do you want that help to come from me?

I just asked like four questions in a single sentence! ^_^

Let me know what's up please.

Aww, man. Now I feel terrible. I know I should be doing more with my own project. I don't want to provideo some bogus excuse, and say I need to spend more time on my own project. I will now. It's summer, I have no real excuse at this point.

Sorry to hear that you are dropping, really. I think it'd be best if I make my next few posts as revies on the private forums. Give me some time to listen them over, everything should be commented on by the weekend. Maybe sooner.

Shinny- That'd be good. Although I don't think it should be called those damn s and z blocks... they're never really much of a problem. Maybe "Line 20", or whatever the highest level of speed is in a regular tetris game...

CHIPP - See the first page, it explains everything. And the thread's title. Yes we are still looking for help. If you have anything you've already done, PM it to me or one of the other Coordinators of this project. WHO I CAN SAY HAVE ALSO NOT BEEN SHOWING AROUND AS MUCH AS THEY SHOULD... but have done a great job over at the private forums while I've been slacking around more than I should be. But really, if you don't have anything to show us, I wouldn't waste your time, no offense meant. We really have to crack down on incoming mixers. No offense, again, meant to anyone. It's risky business letting someone in when they don't have too much to work off of.

Anorak - That sounds great. The contacts, that is. Hello Kitty... I don't remember putting that up on the front page, but I have been a little more lazy with it than I should be...

:(

I know' date=' I know. I am a bit concerned that Kanjika has not visited the site in a month.

I'm going to go fire off emails to a few bands now. I wonder if getting performers for Live 8 is this complicated...

Yeeaaaah.... It's Summer isn't it? Where's the promised activity? I really, really wish I bothered to learn how to mix before I went and started the project. Not that I regret the project, of course. I like knowing that even though I can't directly participate, I'm leading a potentially great deal here.

Question - This project... when I started it, obviously I was to ambitious, too pretentious. Maybe the whole artistic thing is too much. The only thing to worry about is the cover, and even that is nothing, paling in comparison to the project itself. Not saying I regret anything. Just need to get that offa my chest. I've been trying to be more realistic. Don't think I'm only speaking up now because I only realize it now. I speak up now because I have the time to put it into words, and to think about it. Go ahead. Air grievances. It'd be a healthy thing.

...So, Anorak, hear from anyone yet? Send me a list of who you have and haven't contacted yet; I'll cover the rest. Now I feel bad at CAPS yelling at you... And where the hell is Kanjika? Haven't even seen him on AIM...

Off topic a moment... who's been keeping up with the Smash Bros updates? The music is amazing. The bass a short while into the OoT medley is mesmerizing. If Zelda was Pikmin, but it was still Zelda, the music might sound something like that bass. Completely captivating. And the Ridley one? What is there to say? Emotional, and expresses power, anxiety... do I really have to quote Sakurai? It's downright fierce!

Sorry, offtopic... needed to deviate from the conversation for a moment there...

Thoughts? I need to start taking this much more seriously. I feel like I've not been doing what I should.

I'm actually still waiting for Luiza. If things keep going the way they are, I may need to find a new collab partner, as I haven't heard from her in a while. So, yeah, I hope she comes through, as she is totally awesome & our stuff sounds great when we collab.

So...

It's Summer. It's been summer for awhile. And I don't like sending out mass-emails. See, you'd think its just copy/paste, but I kow I'm going to have to personalize each one. OK, this artist, the first part sounds great, but after a minute, it's all too repetitive. Or this artist, It's shaping up nicely, but if you used his theme from this game after the guitar comes in the second time, that'd sound great.

I dunno 'bout you, but I've got it set up so that this thread is 27 pages long right now. Page 26/27 is full of hope right now. People coming back, updates, hey, that's great! I think it's motivation. I'm working on some 3D stuff, for example. Nothing major. A class from High School last year (Rhino3D), and the year before that (Maya/Bryce, if you're interested in knowing), along with almost every lunch, and more hours at home than I can imagine. But I thought, when Summer comes along, I'll have so much free time, that I'll get more work done in two months than I have in the past two years.

But there are days where I don't do anything at all. Just lay around, maybe take a walk around town. Spend an hour or two at the library. Grab some grub at the deli. Come home, open a few tabs on firefox, and F5 'till something interesting comes along (Actually, I wish most days were this interesting. Most of the time, I'm sleeping 'till 1, then I'm lounging around enjoying my first summer without camp/a job. Take my word for it, this is the best summer everis my greatest summer ever).

It's hard to self-motivate. Or to listen to someone else motivating you. I had another point to make besides "work harder", but I forgot what it was. It was a real good point, too...

Something tells me I'm gonna be spending quite a awhile on these PMs...

...Last note? As nerdy as it sounds, watching every single Star Trek movie in a row is extremely satisfying. You have no idea. (I hope that post didn't drive anyone away...)

Hey, I didn't really tell anyone else except Pi (did you forget or something?), but i'm in drum corps for the summer and I have absolutely no internet time. I'll talk to you guys in about two weeks when the season is over. I'll be back on regularly then.

Actually, yeah. Forgot. Sorry 'bout that.

The only Star Trek related programming I'll watch is that one show with the two Rikers where they both go at it. That one was totally awesome.

Yes, the main problem I'm having right now is motivation too. I'm sort of in the opposite situation though. I work from 9-6, and factoring in commutes and meals I sit down in front of my computer to write by seven. But after a long day at work, where I ALSO stare at a computer, I'm just toasted mentally. I just pluck around at my keyboard, wondering how a happy hardcore remix of American Patrol would sound.

The people who wrote the very songs we're mixing didn't have the liberty to stop just because they felt like it. We're lucky to say that we do have this luxury, but are we taking too much advantage of it? I am. I've been struggling with this track for a while now, and need to pull it together. And honestly, finishing up what we're doing is in everyone's best interests. I mean, who doesn't want to be done? Seeing some new activity is good -but getting it back up to old levels, where people are constantly updating their tracks and critiquing others would be really wonderful to see.

Coincidentally, happy one year aniversary everyone!

Oh, wow. I didn't even notice it pass by. I could've sworn I first posted sometime in mid-August. I could make a lot of jokes about all the progress we've made, but we really have. As far as the guidelines, rules, and goals, things have really been focused. But then, WOW, right? 'cause that's all the project is about, right? As long as we've got rules, it's OK. Who needs artists? Nahhh... not us. Ha, you know what I mean. You're all great.
