This week's update is unofficially brought to you through the wonders of NyQuil, the nighttime, sniffling, sneezing, coughing, aching, stuffy-head, have-a-good-sleep-so-you'll-have-a-good-morning medicine. Ten percent alchohol--aw, yeah.
My deepest apologies to those who had their interviews today for the curatorship position when I wasn't present. You see, I caught a cold about a week and a half ago; it went away, and I've caught another bug, which I thought was the flu but is apparently something cold-like in nature. I'm really mad, too, because I took the past two days off from classes due to my sickness, so I essentially had the opportunity to attend the earlier interviews, but alas, I was too sick to force myself to sit at my desk.
Music time: Urafaerie has submitted a really nifty orchestral remix of a theme from Tales of Symphonia. It's all minimalistic-ish and nifty and such. And an old favorite, DarkeSword, has submitted the first response to the 'Good and Evil' challenge. Really sweet, upbeat and rockin'. Both submissions will be sure to please.
Not much else to say. Discussions are soon to be taking place about the possibility of me hanging around to help guide the next curator around and secure him or her into the position. Until next week, stay healthy, and if you're sick, get better!
This piece is a battle theme I wrote that would have been used in a Final Fantasy flash animation that never got made. The samples are not as good as what I usually submit to RPGamer because this piece was originally written as a MIDI file and run through WinGroove. It's actually about two years old. Anyway, the subject of the flash animation was a White Mage coming to a town that was taken over by a False White Mage. She then lead the villagers in revolt against the False White Mage's undead army in order to liberate the town. I used the Occupied Town Theme and the normal Town Theme together in this piece in order to evoke the fighting-for-the-town tone to it. The middle section has the Town Theme in a minor key. I want to eventually totally rework this piece with better samples and an extended arrangement, but the original I wrote two years ago is still fun to listen to. Enjoy.
