terabient: Makoto Yuuki listening to his MP3 player (P3M: Makoto Yuuki)
a story about work )

I spent the morning getting an oil change then doing one out of three hampers of laundry. The two I didn't finish are the ones destined for the donation bins; they've been in storage for years and I'm under the assumption that they're full of yuck and empty of clothing anyone actually wants, but I haven't actually looked too deeply into the hampers. I did today and discovered a number of non-clothing items (just plastic...stuff???? didn't look too closely) so I'll have to *sigh* go through them and toss out all the not-clothing stuff before bringing them to the laundromat. OH WELL. It will be good to have the extra space for all of a day before it gets filled up with more stuff from some other corner of the house no one is using.

Still haven't gotten around to cleaning the house! :T

To end, a couple of interesting game music tracks to consider:

J-E-N-O-V-A, arranged in Mario Paint Composer Looking up Mario Paint composer arrangements of other video game tunes is one of my favorite niche past times; this J-E-N-O-V-A arrange is remarkably close to the original, and uses the "dog bark" note in lieu of timpani. The addition of dogs is always an upgrade, so in some ways this is an improvement on the original piece! :P

Metal Gear Solid theme, arranged for the Gameboy Color Things that will never stop amusing me: the fact that a Gameboy Color port of Beatmania exists; the fact that the Metal Gear Solid theme is a playable track--complete with video overlay!--in said GBC port.

Aquatic Ambiance, re-arranged by Masashi Hamauzu To end on a very different note, here's a beautiful re-arrangement of the Aquatic Ambiance track from Donkey Kong Country. Hamauzu says he was really happy to work on this track, which isn't surprising since it features the atmospheric, chromatic harmonies that he favors in his own compositions. Also: piano and violin solos! ♥

I haven't played Transistor - in fact, I hadn't even heard of it until a week ago - but damn, the reveal trailer song (We All Become) is faaaaaaabulous. Like I may just buy the game because of that song alone. Well, that, and the main character looks wicked awesome.



so yeah that's all
terabient: Leon wants to know WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON (Resident Evil: Leon - what?)
Resident Evil 6 added a bunch of new content this month. One of the new modes is a versus game called 'Onslaught.' It's like...Mercenaries mode crossed with Tetris Attack/Panel de Pon. You and your opponent run around a map killing zombies, trying to keep a combo chain going, but when your chain drops you send the number of zombies you killed over to your opponent's map. If your combo chain hits 30, you automatically dump 30 zombies on your opponent and your combo resets. The first person who dies loses. :P I haven't played it much, but it's pretty fun.

It also has some weird background music.

Cut for video )

On the subject of music, I have not yet heard the ungodly awful Christmas Shoes anywhere so far. Of course, by saying that I've probably ruined everything and it'll be on repeat at my mom's Christmas party tomorrow or something equally horrible.

I spent most of today cleaning the house. On one hand, I'm pretty proud of the newly-shiny kitchen counter and empty sink. On the other hand, there is still a lot of work to be done and ugh i don't want to dooooooooooo eeeeeeeeeet tomorrow. /whine

I finished the kitchen a lot later than I expected (partially because I got distracted by silly interwebs things, whoops) so today's entry is going to be pretty short. Thank goodness for the 30 Days music meme that I still haven't finished! :P

day 28: a song that makes you feel guilty: Kiri no Ijigen by Nakaido Reichi )

day 29: a song from your childhood: Truly Outrageous by Jem and The Holograms )

the rest of the meme )

I had a nine hour clinical today! It was exhausting and I never want to do it again but I have another one tomorrow. At least it will be the last one I have to do.

My initial plan for today's post was to continue with my play through of Resident Evil 6 and go all tl;dr about the third chapter in Chris' campaign. I got through roughly 4 paragraphs before losing all will to continue. But I should have it all finished for tomorrow's post. I AM SURE YOU CAN HARDLY CONTAIN YOUR EXCITEMENT.

This still leaves me with no topic for today's post! I briefly thought about real life, but mine is intensely boring right now, so that's out.

But then I remembered I still haven't finished the 30 day music meme. Which, for the record, I started in 2010. Finishing things on time: I can't.

so

LET'S GET SOME SONGS IN DIS DREAMWIDTH

day 25: a song that makes you laugh: Business Time by Flight of the Conchords )

day 26: a song that you can play on an instrument: Carol of the Bells )

day 27: a song that you wish you could play: Shut The Club Down by Girl Talk )

the rest of the meme )
