VGDJ: Episode #056

This week on the show all about the music and community of OverClocked ReMix:

VGDJ on Saturday? Yep, this ain’t no joke – this is our new release
schedule. How’s that for a nice weekend surprise? Anyway, it’s a cookie
feeding frenzy on Episode 056 as the OCR community’s momentum
continues. We’ve got new reviews, reports, a very somber Russian ReMix
Roulette, and the Dwelling of Duels hookup, to name just a few! Not
only that, but you’ll also discover the secret ingredient
that powers every great ReMixer, the true origins of “zircon” and
“pixietricks”, and what will undoubtedly be the greatest pickup line
you will ever hear. Download, and be merry!
[00:00] One must truly appreciate what is undoubtedly the greatest marketing idea of our time.
Enter VGDJ, stage left. Wait, Saturday? Huh? If you’re reading this
you’ve surely noticed our schedule has changed in a way that should
better accomodate both you, our loyal listeners, as well as us.
[03:15] We don’t need proxy voting to stay high on the PodcastAlley charts! Show those forum meanies that we mean business and keep on giving us your legit votes.
[04:29] The Rama Re-oops,
maybe not this week. Buuuut we do have our own little announcement to
make. Listen in to the next episode of “The Next Level” on GameMusicRadio, cause we’re gonna be interviewed on there!
[06:36] ReMix Review: Final DoomMilagro Del Demonio‘ by TO
… Yay for Aussies! TO seems incapable of dropping a groove that ISN’T
catchy, and the Doom soundtracks are really suited for his style. Like
his Raptor mix,
it certainly wouldn’t have hurt to have an extra instrument or two in
there; but even considering that small quibble, this is still Hott
[09:36] ReMix Review: Star Ocean: The Second StoryInto Your Kamikaze‘ by blizihizake
/ Blake Perdue … Like Darkesword, chthonic, and Tyler Heath,
blizihizake is one of the few mixers left using exclusively free
samples. Yet even with that handicap, he managed to create an
incredibly intricate orchestral mix with great dynamics and a great
arrangement. He said his goal was to prove that he could write an
orchestral ReMix that wasn’t “boring”. Suffice it to say, we think he
[12:49] The Compo Report: PRC, TOMC, and FLMC.
m/ m/ – That’s right. Those are “the horns”, poorly represented to
the best of zircon’s ability, in ASCII. And you’re gonna need ’em if
you plan on listening to or participating in Dwelling of Duels.
DoD is a monthly ReMix competition that many OCReMixers participate in,
and it’s based around live instruments. If you’re just not getting your
daily recommended dosage of ROCK from OCR, than you gotta check DoD
out. Don’t take our word for it though…
[15:41] Goemon’s Great Adventure ‘Devil’s Heaven‘ by SnappleMan (DoD June winning entry)
[17:37] Nooooo, GrayLightning!
;_; Our beloved judge, moderator, and new age/orchestral ReMixer has
said goodbye to OCR and moved on to a professional, full time career in
music. And while no one can fill the gap that he left, it is of some
comfort that zyko
has sorted out things in his personal life and has made return to OCR
and the judge’s panel. We hope that will also translate to new ReMixes,
now that he has some free time. With these changes, what can we expect
to see next? Perhaps Wingless making a triumphant return? … well,
maybe not…
[19:59] The Meetup Report: OCR Toronto, tentative Pittsburgh, PA meetup, tentative Australia QLD meetup, Video Games Live in LA meetup, an additional planned Seattle meet, and Shael Riley NYC concert.
[23:37] Russian ReMix Roulette:
WEEK ONE of the Campaign to Keep the RRR Alive (or CKRRRA for short)
has begun. We will not idly sit by and watch our Roulette be
heartlessly dismantled piece by piece. djp, you monster! A fitting mix
was selected to represent our noble cause – Final Fantasy 7Fight On‘ by CarboHydroM.
Nothin’ like a glass of water to sip while your hosts discuss the
merits of eating VGDJ Brand ReMixing Fuel, their ReMixer handles, Hot
Pockets, zircon’s incredibly smooth and obviously effective pickup
line, which is so powerful that it cannot be written down in any form,
and more. Good times.
Will pixietricks be swayed by the irresistable charm of Kuroikaze’s
pickup line? Will Rama ever consistently submit a report? Why did we
say Cyan_Ide’s recording was good when it was actually worse than
usual? Find out, on the next episode of DRAGONBALL Z! Err, VGDJ. And to
pass the time while you’re waiting, visit our OCR thread, Cafepress store, and photo album. Oh, and voting for us at to keep us in the top 10 of ALL podcasts wouldn’t hurt either.
