  • Does anybody know what that Disney thing is from the 80s, where it was for Halloween, and the whole thing consisted of music videos for popular tunes at the time? It included Superstition, Sweet Dreams, Somebody's Watchin' Me (or whatever that song's called-- you know how song titles are though, it's always the chorus or the first two words), Thriller, Bad Moon Rising, the Monster Mash (because of goddamn course it does), Ghostbusters, and uhhh that might be it actually. Maaaaybe Werewolves of London.
    But I want to find it again because the level of effort gone into syncing up little clips, finding bits from hundreds of old Disney shorts *that actually work in-context,* it literally reminds me of some top-tier cartoon edit that'd get thousands of views today, like that edit where someone put Naruto audio over Nature Pants and re-synced the mouths.

    Pretty sure it also had a sing-along thingy at the bottom. I'm mostly looking for it because I didn't SEE all of it last time, I just HEARD all of it, because I was writing notes for piano class. The fact that it was literally October when I saw it and yet STILL think about it makes me proud on the the editor(s) behalf.
    "I really wish procrastination wasn't so big of an inspiration." Especially because I've realized the song I thought to cover, which inspired the post I'm quoting, works *really* well with Wario's voice clips, in addition to the soundfont, which has me elated to eventually get back to it.
    "*You* call it 'Protestant'; *I* call it my headcanon."

    You saying that reminded me of how the guy who wrote The Little Mermaid, Hans Christian Andersen, went and flopped over and lied face down in Charles Dickens's yard to wallow in self-pity or whatever, and eventually Charles just saw him out there and was like "oh for fuck's sake," because that wasn't the first time it happened, either.

    And he apparently did that because somebody gave his most recent book a bad review. I think Mr. Andersen would have a difficult time here in the age of the internet

    Also fitting that Danny Kaye played him in that 50s Hans Christian Andersen musical, 'cause Kaye was also a gyertdern weirdo

    "Good evening. Uhhh tonight we'll be discussing why the seven Greek modes' original names make more sense, and how the modern names are total horseshi-- hey, why does this cue card capitalize the first T"
    "It's a proper name, sir"
    "Are you the spellchecker?
    "...Or, like, the grammartician? Grammaticist?"
    "Yes"
    "...You've been demoted to resident Haunted Sleeping Pads!"
    "nnnNNOOOOO"

    Propellerhead actually responded to one of my vent posts where I ranted about all the shit Reason 10 gives you from the get-go, and it was the one where I superficially asked where the Piano Roll was-- which was thoughtful, I suppose-- but now I kind of feel bad, because it sobered me to the fact that I'm getting mad at the wrong person. Up until now it was just a faceless company but now it's a bit less faceless and so it bothered me a little.
    I don't want to lay into the teacher about making me put up with this shit, because I'm sure that I'm like one case in the last few semesters that's having to learn a second (seemingly inferior, definitely less user-friendly) music-making software as opposed to my first-- making an exception for me would be ridiculous. That doesn't stop me from hating Reason 10, but I immediately am disliking the Music Production class so far from the fact that I have to use it.
    MIDI files for latest project now up!!
    Here's the original finished version: http://www.vgmusic.com/new-files/Zakktan.mid
    And here's the FINAL version: http://www.vgmusic.com/new-files/Zakktan_Mobile.mid

    As their names suggest, if you're on PC, I recommend listening to the former (assuming you don't plan on doing any arranging once downloaded like I would). If you're using Google Play Music, definitely go for the latter. I have no clue what either one would sound like on Apple Music (assuming it plays MIDIs), so that one's up to you.
    Really, the only immediately detectable difference is whether 'ShhShh' will be a Breath Noise or an Agogo, but when the sound's level of intrusiveness effectively gets swapped depending on the platform, it's a big one in practice.
    Every now & then I remember Spike from Transformers is currently the official voice for Captain Hook (and fucking Count Dooku), and every time my respect for Corey Burton completely reinvigorates itself.

    BTW, just as a disclaimer: from now on, I'm limiting the sort of guff that I upload to my Forum statuses to:
    A) something cool and/or informative
    B) something that's meant to incite discussion
    C) hWAAAAARriooooo
    D) Music-related news, like SC posts, MIDI uploads, and general updates on that front.

    "completely rejuvenates itself." did he do anything to lose your respect? (also personally I ping him as the voice for shockwave lol)
    tahutoa

    No, I just sometimes forget how cool that really is (plus it's a testament to his range as a voice actor, I think).
    I "ping" him as Count Dooku, personally-- assuming "ping" means 'the first that comes to mind.'
    Uploaded the Wariofied ver. of Burning Heat: https://soundcloud.com/tahutoa/burning-heat
    Those of you with eagle ears may be able to pick out the parts where I've snuck in a remix of Flamin' Wario.

    Interestingly, WL4's "[43,0] Square" preset is almost identical to the actual bass for the original Burning Heat.
    Add that, plus the [19,2] Bass Organ (as I often do), and it sounds pretty dope. I also wanted to give off that Arabian Nights, Fiery Cavern type of vibe, so I included the Oboe and Hotel Horror Strings, respectively, to help boost the sound. What was originally a Tubular Bell I inserted as a Beyond the Headrush, if I recall-- it's kind of hard to hear, but it's there, and even works as a third harmony.
    Important information: "Burning Heat," the song I finished working on last night, is in the same key as Flaming Wario.
    Tahutoa, this place is not Twitter. Can you please tone to number of profile posts down a bit? You can keep posting but if you keep doing it too much it gets hard to scroll and read other people's posts. Thank you.

    The guy can post faster than we can react. But yeah, @tahutoa please calm down a bit, it's getting out of hand.

    Thank you, thank you. I don't know if it's me posting quickly, or other people barely posting at all. Probably both. And yes, I've migrated my bullshit back over to Twitter. The waarum's incredibly tantalizing lack of character limit is rather intoxicating, but I GUESS I'll rein it in. I WANT to react to that post with the angry face, because I am aggravated, but that would be completely unfair, it'd be completely shitty of me because it isn't all that warranted.
    *SIIIIIGH* You both are RIIIIGHT to tell me to pause and let everyone breathe, I probably need to shut the fuck up for a few seconds.

    I think it was CMV that said me posting stuff as often as I did helps boost site activity, and I really like this site, so I decided to keep activity up, not realizing how much it would glut up the system-- especially since, unlike Twitter, I'm not talking to an empty wall and people will actually read my inconsequential garbo. which prrroobably comes off as super obnoxious to anyone going through profile posts, when everyone's Status posts are as prim and blunt as they are. I know it'd annoy me-- that's because I'm a hypocrite with shit willpower and shittier self-control.

    I'm like when a website opens 7 different pop-up ads over the course of 15 minutes, each with a completely different and unrelated product on it.
    Are there any words that you pronounce differently as a result of associating the word with something? For example: I've always pronounced "Keygen" as "Kee Genn," like as in gift, and it's entirely because of The King Downloads Sony Vegas
