Good work everyone, great month. Almost every entry at least got "average". 

 

EDIT: Actually now that I look at it, 3/4 of the 35 entries were at least "above average". That's pretty incredible.

Nah, that's pretty above average. :D

 

 

A few words about my entries:

 

Gran Turismo 2 - Too Slow For Gold

I actually wanted to record this for the last year's brevity month, but back then I didn't have the chops to play it on either bass or guitar. Now my instrument chops are slightly better, but I think my mixing chops have gone down because I'm not making as much music as before. Gonna try to correct that in 2017! This entry was at first inspired by Casiopea's Galactic Funk, but I went for a heavier sound with the rhythm guitars. And I find it somehow funny that I was spot on with the title - just short of gold (though I feel my 2nd place is a bit undeserved, there were quite a few awesome entries). :)

 

Final Fantasy 8 - I Want My DoD

Continuing my annual FF boss theme spoofs, this time it's Maybe I'm a Lion done in the style of Money For Nothing. I asked finbeard to be Sting but he seemed a bit busy so I didn't wanna bother him too much. But hey, my vocals don't sound THAT bad, I guess... or do they? By the way, I'm willing to record a full version of this if somebody can rewrite the lyrics. My lyrics are kinda lame but it was the best I could think of. :)

This iteration of PMHM was Yardgnome, Sam, and me over the phone. They called me at, probably, 1AM on Sunday, we picked a song, and popped it off in one shot. I did not account for phone-line Purposeful manual delay . Audio was ripped from a video Sam recorded of the live phone call. Eddie was not snoring loud enough to catch on the recording, sadly.

 

I am a tad disappointed Sagnew was not a part of this. I love it.

I'm imagining Ellis writing the script to this at a computer, and every time he gets to the end of a line about religion being bad he smacks his fedora to tip it, making the sounds of a typewriter being reset.

Uhm, Money For Nothing is not by Sting, duh

 

Sting sings the backing vocals. I was gonna be Mark Knopfler anyway. :P

Good to be back!

 

Was considering posting some short reviews but Lemon said basically everything I could think of in the previous thread.

 

Top placings are all worthy but my jaw dropped seeing Stemage's track at #14, thought it was a top three entry for sure. So creative, fun and well done. Robbed!

 

Had fired up the 8bitx webchat and went to bed with the intention of reading up on the listening party the day after, only to find that it didn't scroll back far enough to even read the alt entry comments. Was kicking myself (seriously, after 15+ years of IRC I should've known better but Discord finally won me over a while ago...) for all of five minutes until MVP Hakštok appeared with the logs, so thanks for that, appreciate it  :wub:

THANK GOD Beardo won. That's one of the most creative VGM things to ever exist. CONGRATS BOYS UP TOP!  B)​

That's a nice thing to say, but mine was a troll track in the end anyway.  ;) Was a ton of fun to put together tho!

I'm really glad Beardo won 1st, but let's recognize how badass Hat is for writing a fugue!  Is this the first one in DoD history?
