The Legend of Zelda. Any gamer worth their weight in rupees is a fan of at least one of the games from this long lived series of awesome (and if not, may an octorok launch a spiky ball up your arse!! :3 ) One among many, many reasons that this is true has to do with the excellent music that accompanies every Zelda game. And while there has been plenty of Zelda love among the VGM community over the years, there hasn’t really been any albums that were solely devoted to it.
This dude that I’d never even heard of before Jmr’sOpen Circuit listening party on Areciboradio last weekend just up and released this INDESCRIBABLY amazing 23 track Legend of Zelda tribute album. Turns out it’s actually been around a year in the making and you can damn well tell by the quality of it! Stylistically it’s a mix of prog rock, post-rock, blues, western country, jazz piano AND ZORA KNOWS WTF ELSE!!! Regardless, the end result is this stirring EPIC – in the TRUEST sense of the word – of Zelda love and musicality far beyond the norm. IT’S ABSO-F**KIN-LUTELY BEAUTIFUL. I mean, seriously, that sums it up, because how often do you hear someone describe a VGM album with the term “BEAUTIFUL“?? Also, the guy needs to get a band happening so I can see his ass play at MAGFest; would be a killer show. SO GET ON THAT, VGM MUSICIANS!!!! ;D ANYWHO, enough words already! HEY LISTEN!! to it already and then promptly go bug the deku nuts out of Cory on Twitter about how awesome it is so he’ll keep making more fantastic VGMusic. DEFINITELY will be your good deed of the day/week/month/year/EVAR. ;)
MAGFest 9 was insane. It’s hard to put into words. I spent at least ten hours a day at my booth, only made it to one panel, and caught about one song from every band. Could I have had more fun? Probably. Did I have a ton of fun? You bet. Why was it so fun to hang out at a booth, you ask? Well perhaps I can answer that with a YOUTUBE VIDEO >B]
I met a ton of totally awesome people, from beat producer Emrls and DJ AGGRESSION (featured in the video above,) to throwing down at the SECRET RAVE with DJ SyNCeRe and the Chip-Hop pioneer A_Rival. We threw down HARD at 3:00AM on Saturday night at the SECRET RAVE. Special Guest OCREMIX’s BeatDrop came through for a total of FIVE DJs throwing down all at once. The energy was great, the crowd was awesome and the party was NUTS. Here’s some proof:
I couldn’t help myself but get do a little credit animation there at the end.
BUT NO MAGFest9 POST COULD BE COMPLETE without mentioning Emrls’ PROTOMAN BANGER and the chaos that ensued. Hear the beat:
That’s right, I’m talking about the ELEVATOR PARTIES. The most chaotic chaos one could ever expect, checking into a hotel and trying to make it to their room, this compalation video is blowing up on youtube with a bunch of hilarious and venomous comments on youtube. Missed out? Maybe you’re better off. All I have to say is Don’t Hate! If you don’t like elevators / parties then TAKE THE STAIRS. We all drank like fifty BAWLZ anyway, probably could use burning off all that caffeine!
I hope this has convinced you to GET TO MAFEST next year. It’s the funnest time a nerd can have. and shit man, I didn’t even talk about all the VIDEO GAMES.
This is the longest blog post I’ve ever written. And it’s for a damn deserving group of the most hardworking nerds I’ve ever known. Thank you MAGFest.
