mandolin: (last unicorn)
As some people know, I've been a sporadic visitor to Overclocked Remix for a few years now. And I do mean sporadic; I'd check it out once or twice a year if I remembered. Sure, it's packed with free video game music remixes (and some really good ones), but for the longest time the only way you could sample a track was to download it. The reviews and descriptions didn't always tell me enough, and I felt like I was wasting the site's bandwidth.

Last month, they added YouTube previews of every single track. I've been visiting the site a lot more frequently, and I've found some pretty good stuff. Of course, that took a bit of digging, but I had to share. Links are grouped by how much I like the tracks in question.

EDIT: No, seriously. If you're skeptical, just check out this track and this track for some really nice jazz pieces. Even if you don't give a damn about video game music, you've got to admit they're good.

The really fantastic tracks that I play again and again )

Tracks that are still awesome but I don't flail as much over them )

Honorable mentions (AKA I like these but am getting lazy with descriptions) )

This has been brought to you by my urge to post a long and totally random link list on my blog. :)

After four years, ladies and gentlemen, I have a working dishwasher.

Man, it's nice to be able to see my counter after I cook something more complicated than a microwave meal.

This riveting post brought to you in part by my Mom, who is awesome and came down to plumber-sit so I could go to work on Friday. Love you, Mom.

...and now I have cleaning to do. Yet this is still better.
mandolin: (banter)
I was driving home from work a few days ago and noticed that the consignment shop I'd found a few months back - one that usually had some nifty stuff - was gone. I finally managed to pull in there so I could read the signs without getting rear-ended: "Closed for fire." ...I really hope they'll be able to reopen. I feel bad for being slightly relieved that it didn't say "Closed permanently" or something, though. *crosses fingers*

Picked up Amazing Spider-Girl #12 and have flipped through it to confirm or disprove my fears. Not quite what I was afraid of. *sigh* Okay, Tom DeFalco is not on my hit list, but... I foresee a Giant Sucking Black Hole of Angst and Guilt for the next several issues. Arrrgh. I may want to take it off my pull list and get the third trade instead if that's going to be the case. Oh, and Moose is a complete freaking IDIOT.
