Famicom Fridays #4: Holiday Special

There's not much holiday themed action here, but I decided to finally make an episode based on requests. Hopefully you all are having a happy holiday season, folks! :)

Here's a direct link to the Youtube version.

Updates, and a video featuring music by me!

Sorry I didn't get this update posted on Monday, but just to confirm, the game I did music for (Hot and Cold) DID get released on Monday on DSiWare. :) I'll get some music posted from the game in the players on the right so you all can listen, but if any of you can actually buy the title yourselves, it'd mean a lot to me. The main producer behind the game really went out of his way to get me to work on his title, and was extremely persistent on making sure the game got out. :)

I'm planning on doing some sort of video talking about the music from the game, but if there are any topics related to that you all want me to go into, feel free to suggest them in the comments below.

Now! On to other matters. Another week, another fun video featuring some music by me! Over at, one of the newest videos is a review of the infamous "Star Wars Holiday Special," which features a little music bit towards the end with music supplied by me. Thanks goes out to everyone at :)

I'm on track to getting the next episode of Famicom Fridays done for Christmas Day. At any rate, Happy Holidays everyone, and I'll have more updates later!

Some Bad News...and Good News!

Hey all. I know this seems a little iffy for me to be making such an announcement so close to Friday, but I won't be posting an episode of Famicom Fridays this week - been busy working on a LOT of music this week, and hopefully I'll get some of it posted up over the weekend. :) In addition, I got some plans for next Friday, and something especially special planned for January 1st's installment of Famicom Fridays (just in time for MAGFest! :D).

As always, please feel free to give me info on what you'd like to see me talk about in these episodes, as I want to make Famicom Fridays as fun/interesting for you to watch as it is for me to make 'em. :)

Thanks in advance for your patience, all, and I'll see about making a small video update of some sort for tomorrow.

Oh! One additional bit of news. According to some people that I've worked with over at Majesco, there will be a DSiWare Release of a game I did music for! :) The game, Hot 'n Cold, supposedly will be released on the 21st...though I'm not 100% sure if it's confirmed or's hoping, and if you can get the game, please do so to help support the folks on the dev team that allowed me to contribute over an hour of original music to the title! :)

A new member entering the household, gaming wise...

...thanks to a incredible deal I stumbled across while talking with friends, I'll soon have an authentic Japanese 8-bit system in the house! :)

Specifically, the Sharp Twin Famicom, which will make it significantly easier for me to play and hear games from the Japanese Famicom (and Famicom Disk System) side of things in their true element!

Plus, the particular model I'm getting has built in turbo controllers! Hopefully it all works, and I'll be able to put forth an update when the product arrives!

HUGE thanks go to JewWario for advising me around this acquisition. :) Now I'm fully able to play all the retro Japanese Nintendo games I could want!

I have a Famicom Title (Akumajou Densetsu), but I don't have any Famicom Disk System titles to test the console with when it gets here...any recommendations, or anyone willing to offer a disk for me to test with? Thanks for any and all help! :)

Famicom Fridays #2 - Blue Bomber (Pre) Birthday Bonanza!

My birthday is to celebrate, here's a video of me talking about my first chiptune piece that I wrote way back in 2004 (The video is's just the song that was made in 2004. :P).  Enjoy, folks, and have a great weekend!

Thanks to the TGWTG Wiki Team!

I'm working on my article for tomorrow's Famicom Fridays...but for a moment I wanted to give a quick thanks to Chris Ferraiolo and the rest of the TGWTG Wiki team for helping me get a page set up on their Wikia site.

You can check out my page (which will continue to grow in the future! :) ) right here.

Tomorrow's article will be a fun one both for me to write, and for you to read/listen to.

Piano is secured, sir!

The Yamaha upright is installed and good to go! Chances are that I'll have to get it tuned in the next few weeks, but otherwise I can't wait to record some music off of it! :)
