All Star Soprano
Smash Mouth

Some people expressed complaints that the vocals in All Star City sounded too low and thus strange (because pitch-shifting is clearly still a mysterious and futuristic concept). Please accept this apology.

Hey did you see someone reuploaded your AllStar City on youtube and it got frontpaged on r/videos?

That’s kinda shitty, but honestly, I don’t care all too much. I keep these sort of tracks off of YouTube for that very reason - I don’t want to accidentally become Le Epic Reddit Remixer (and one look through the comments of the video kinda reinforces that).

I guess I’m a little annoyed that someone took a thing I made and claimed it as their own, but it only took 10 minutes to cobble together with zero of my own actual content, so I don’t really have much right to be particularly incensed about it. The video anon’s talking about is here - but hey, they made a video background for it, so I guess technically they put more original content into it than I did.

Waynes Shot Dead in Alley
City mourns the loss of beloved philanthropists.
In a dark Theater District alley, the lives of Thomas Wayne and his wife, Martha, came to an end. After attending a performance of a popular musical, the couple and their young son took a shortcut through an alley to catch a cab when a masked robber held them at gunpoint. Despite their cooperation, the gunman fired at Martha and Thomas, killing them both, but leaving their son alive to witness the bloody scene.At 11:13pm last night, 12-year-old Bruce Wayne’s screams of terror caught the attention of concerned citizens. “By the time I got there, he had calmed down,” recounted Katherine Seo, a homeless woman who saw the gruesome spectacle. “He was a lot more composed than I would have been, and trust me, I’ve seen a lot of stuff go down out here.”Police arrived moments after the shootings and cordoned off the alley. “We are doing everything in our power to track down our suspect and bring this criminal to justice,” Police Commissioner Patrick Brady told the press as forensics specialists covered every square inch of alley space. “If anyone has seen anything or knows someone who did, please contact your local police station immediately.”As of press time this morning, no witnesses had come forward.

Oh my god, how ghastly! Such caring, generous people - and such a young son too!

Oh shit, the Waynes got popped? Damn, that’s unbelievable. People like that, you sorta get to thinking they’re invincible or something, y’know? Surprised nobody’s come forward. They should check out that Chill punk, he’s the sorta scum I’d peg for this. Just ignore that crazy homeless guy that’s been raving about it - claims it was some sorta clown or something that killed ‘em. Crazy old asshole, think his name was Tim something? Eh, never mind.

Is there any chance of getting a download of Allstar City? It's so fucking good.

Anonymous

I woke up to several asks like this. It baffles me a little, because you have to go to my main page to send an ask, and the post where I give a link to the download is right there, the second post on the page!

Here is the post with the download.

What kind of music do you listen to and what do you feel mainly inspires your style of music? Conversely is there a genre that you have no interest in emulating/crafting a song in but dig?

Anonymous

My music taste changes rapidly, but one common theme I always like is 80’s-themed stuff, retro/chiptune-themed stuff, synths, etc. As well as most orchestral-based stuff, Classical, Jazz, pretty much everything except modern ‘RnB’ or cookie-cutter EDM. I also have a soft-spot for musical-style things, especially with vocal counterpoint, which there REALLY isn’t enough of (stuff where two people sing over eachother about conflicting ideas, only directly harmonising in brief intersections. E.g “The Good Doctor” by the Protomen, or that bit in Frozen where Anna and Elsa are argue-singing in the snow-castle. Unf I fucking love vocal counterpoint and wish there was more of it).

Usually when I like a genre, I’d quite like to emulate it (and most of the time, the only reason I don’t is because I feel I lack the skill or wouldn’t be good at it). Conversely, I occasionally find myself working on genres I’m not particularly into, such as Drum and Bass.

PLEASE GIVE LINKS TO DOWNLOAD ALL STAR CITY

If you have XKit, there already is one.

If not, here is a direct link to the MP3 (right-click, save as…)

Did you know that M83’s Midnight City and Smash Mouth’s All Star have a tempo difference of only 1 BPM?

Blog idea: the wizards of vaporwaverly place

Ah, It's a shame you don't like new Game Grumps. I mean I totally see where you're coming from, I love your music, and I respect your opinion. On that note, Did you enjoy the new sequelitis?

I enjoyed it, yeah. He raised some really good points. He also showed once again that he also has some pretty silly opinions though. Arin’s perfect game would clearly be one where you can run straight to the final boss and defeat him within 5 minutes, because god forbid that any actual sense of pacing blocks his path. (And his stubborn “text in a tutorial is inherently bad” philosophy that’s based on a minimalistic 2D game with 4 actions across 6 buttons but he somehow still applies to 3D games with many complex actions across 12 buttons and two analog sticks is pretty silly, but he didn’t mention it in the new one, so I guess I digress)

But overall, yeah, it was enjoyable and a lot of it was on the mark.

Now that I heard from you I totally understand. In fact I'm glad that someone else agrees that it's annoying how passive Dan is with him. It's almost like he's afraid to disagree with him even if he feels differently and I don't like it. Again, I apologize for the misplaced anger. I shouldn't have taken my disappointment on Grumps out on you, because like I said I really loved your remixes and I think I'm just desperately trying to validate my enjoyment of a show I once loved. Once.

Don’t worry about it, it’s cool. (I’m actually a little disappointed that you turned out to be cool. There’s something about irate anon-hate that I just kinda enjoy and find funny).

You can still enjoy the show. Even if it has slipped in quality, if you watch it and enjoy it you really don’t need to ‘validate’ it. Watch what you enjoy, don’t feel the need to justify it. Don’t let curmudgeons like me step in and ruin your enjoyment. I know maybe it’s implied that when I say “this thing is crap” that I mean “don’t enjoy this thing”, because a lot of people do mean it like that, but in my case that couldn’t be further than the truth. If something makes people happy, who am I to tell people to stop enjoying it?

Sorry for coming off so angrily, it appears I was misinformed. A lot of their merch isn't that great I'll admit, and I still miss Jon's humor, but I'm really confused about your outlook on the matter. Do you resent Arin for how he handles his business?

Anonymous

To be honest, it’s sorta 50/50. For one, Arin’s comedy has slipped so much. He phones it in to an insane degree. Some people like that stuff, but it really doesn’t do it for me. I don’t know if maybe he just had better material to bounce off of with Jon (they disagreed a lot, allowing for funny arguments and whatnot, whereas Arin and Danny seem to just agree on most things). But catchphrases, beatboxing, and shouting about dicks seem to be his main style now, and if he does come up with a funny joke you can bet he’ll repeat it over and over again until it’s been dragged into the ground. Again, some people like that, and that’s cool. 

But also, by coincidence, I’ve ended up hearing various bits and pieces about Arin over time from various different people who know him, and overall he’s really been painted to me in a pretty bad light. Y’know how Hotdiggetydemon acts like an arrogant asshole in public but is apparently a decent guy in real life? Apparently Arin’s the opposite. It’s evident that he sees GG 100% as a business now, which would be okay if he actually put in some effort. But I don’t base my opinion of a show on idle behind-the-scenes gossip, so if anything that only reinforces my opinion, albeit in a way that can’t really be publicly justified.
