Bittorrent, if just to ease the assault on the mirrors. If you can,
please seed once you are done downloading! More information is

Jack Thompson: More than a few fries short of a happy meal…

So being an insomniac of sorts, I decided to poke around the internet
to keep myself occupied earlier this morning. I did my rounds to the
few sites I regularly visit in the order I expected them to be
interesting. The last site I checked was VGCats. While there the latest news article happened too catch my eye:

Saturday, August
6, 2005 4:26 PM – Jacko

I’m fairly sure Jack Thompson isn’t right in the head.
Forwards an email to me about Killer 7. I email him
back. He threatens legal action for harrasment. Wtf?

Read the full thing here.

Edit: Yes I checked the headers. Same IP, it was him
both times and not a spoof.

So APPARENTLY Jack Thompson is forwardining his huge and elaborately
written exagerrations and forwarding to them to people who parody him,
while ADDRESSING them on a FIRST NAME BASIS, and THEN completely forget
(more like flat out lying) he sent it in the FIRST PLACE, but not
before throwing a few other lines in for good measure:

“Get a name and a life.”

Oh the irony in that one.

“No, you emailed me. HOnestly, are
all of you gamers on drugs, or what?

Gee thanks, Jack. Nice generalization =.

“dear idiot: you initially contacted
me. stop, or else. got it?”

Jack Thompson…king of the insult.

Anyway VGCats is claiming that all of this IS indeed real, as stated
above. Really nothing would suprise me at this point, but if it IT
indeed real, then I think it’s QUITE clear Jack Thompson has a bit more
than a few screws loose. Possibly the entire chassis.

OverLooked RemiX

It has recently come to my attention that OverLooked Remix hasn’t been getting much attention here. So, I will take it upon myself to bring all of you news from our fair little site.
Our Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time project finally has a name “OLRina Of Time” and needs more remixers and art for new sigs.

A mini flood of new remixes came yesterday, with remixes by big names like analoq and mythril nazgul, so be sure to check those out, along with all the other new remixes on the site.

Doujin spotlight: Music Fantasy Tactics 2

Music Fantasy Tactics 2, the followup to last year’s FF Tactics/Advance arrangement project, has now finally been officially unveiled.
Organized by Dynastess, it features 26 tunes and 25 participants.
Definitely worth checking out for any fan of FFT or just good music in
general.

The tracks can be downloaded here. (Note: The files are compressed using the LZH format, so you will need an appropriate program to extract the MP3s).
