ThaSauce Acquires OverLooked ReMix; Suzumebachi Declared Supreme Truckdriver

Suzumebachi posted on OverLooked ReMix:

Sorry about the downtime. Took longer to transfer servers than we thought. That makes us dumb. But that also makes us your bosses.

Things are gonna change around here, people. For one thing, sad mario HAS to go. Space cat has been grounded. And the dumptruck budget has been slashed by 50%.

Starting today OLReMix will only accept ReMiXesSsS of the highest quality. Your submissions shall be judged cruelly by a new panel consisting of the highest and most qualified authorities, handpicked by your overlords. And if found wanting, you will be summarily executed.

All un-televised rebellions will be put down immediately with brute force and no remorse.

Disregard that I

Anyways, I’m Suzumebachi, and I’m your newest admin. Your friends at ThaSauce Network have taken over hosting of OLR and as such naturally left me in charge. What does that mean for you? Nothing, really. Just one more bully in the pulpit. If that’s even a valid metaphor.

We’re still in the process of ironing everything out on the new server. So if you see anything broken, PLEASE let us know.

Oh and before you ask. No, Richter didn’t die. He just decided you all suck and he never wants to see any of you ever again.

Kidding. He got a life.

Crocodile Chaos – A Donkey Kong Country 2 OverLooked ReMix Album

So after 4 years of tireless effort (and 2 years of sitting around on peoples’ computers), OverLooked ReMiX is proud to present Crocodile Chaos, a Donkey Kong Country 2 ReMix Album!

Because Dave Wise’s music is so awesome, it needs another project 😀

OLRville – Tunes for the Road

OLR ville

After 5 months of blood, sweat, and tears (mostly tears because nobody
understands what a ‘deadline’ is), OverLooked ReMiX proudly presents
our latest site project, OLRville – Tunes for the Road!
The album is a collection of different town/city themes, done in the traditional OverLooked style of making blood flow from your ears while you listen.  8 tracks of ReMiXy goodness from guys like Brunzolaitis, Zimish One, and nesper!

Click the picture (or follow the link -> http://olrville.olremix.org) and grab the .zip if you want everything, or have a taste-test with the songs first!  And if you are feeling so bold, leave some comments in the official thread.

You can give your props to Zimish One (aka POCKETMAN in some places), as he is the project coordinator and I don’t even know which site project this is for him…probably his 6th or so.

(also, this is an announcement that our queue is fixed, so you can submit songs again!  yay!)

Green Jester Needs Space Badly

So, ladies and gents, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but this is an issue that needs to be addressed.

As I found out from Richter a week or so ago, OverLooked ReMiX
has become too large for him to host any longer.  He’s pretty much
paying out of his own pocket too, as we aren’t a large enough site to
garner a consistent traffic flow, and I’m pretty sure the revenue off
of ads is miniscule at best.

Thus, I don’t know how much longer we’ll be around.  The only option
Richter and I could think of is to release songs on YouTube, and then
host a torrent of all of the songs for people who want individual
copies of them.  Richter did also move the songs to another hosting,
but that’s only saved them; we can’t post new remixes, and we have at
least one new site project to release that can’t be hosted on the
server.  This is why we haven’t had a new remix in about a month.

If anyone would like to lend a hand with anything (even if it comes to
torrenting, just having some seeds), it would be greatly appreciated. 
Obviously I’m not looking for someone to just take and host the site,
but even some alternative options than what Richter and myself have
thought of would help us.  Although if you would consider hosting,
contact Richter at richtaur at gmail dot com, and/or myself at
xenonodyssey at hotmail dot com.

Thanks for giving this a read.

OLRina of Time released to the public

Today, OverLooked ReMix has released its latest site project OLRina of Time, holding 25 remixes covering various original music from the Nintendo 64 title Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

Xenon Odyssey, the project’s savior/head coordinator, expressed his personal thanks at OverClocked Remix earlier today.

“After a year and a month, it’s finally done.

I’d like to give a big fuck-you to Sinewav and Monday, as the former started the project and then abandoned it, and the latter promised me a song and never came through. You guys suck.
A big thank-you goes to shpladoink & Kupi for finally getting the final song done and winning the contest I had in place.”

OverLooked ReMix Temporary downtime

Anyone who’s visted OverLooked Remix late’ll notice that the site is currently down down in an earlier round…
No worries, though. It’s not an elaborate hack job by BS Inc. or anything like that. Richter is simply moving the site to a new (an apparently much better) server. No word on exactly how long the transcition’ll take, but in the meantime you’re encouraged to visit the OLReMix chatroom.
