Let’s look back on 2015 for both the good and the bad and celebrate another great year passing to make room for an even better one.
With but a few days left before the July 15th release of Chiptunes = WIN: Volume 2, the final touches are being put in place; Dj CUTMAN is preparing the final masters for upload, Kubbi is locking in the track order, & I’m triple checking everything there is to check thrice over & THEN AGAIN.
In the meantime, HAVE A PROMO VIDEO (full roster listed within):
And how about some KICKASS ALBUM ARTWORK while you’re at it:
Regarding Volume 2 merch by Maddie of Pixel Pixie Apparel & Promotions, YES.
(sorry, that’s all you’re getting on that until Monday ;).
And, of course, don’t miss the crazy Vol.2 listening party on 8 Bit Power Hour + Nerd Rock Radio starting at 8pm EST Monday on 8bitx.com (click HERE to go to the Fb event). I expect it to be JUST as ridiculously awesome, awesomely ridiculous as the first one (i.e. VERY much so 8).
3 MORE DAYS, Y’ALL. ^_^ ^_^ ^_^

EDIT: Volume 2 is RELEASED!! Check it out below!! =D
YUP. You read that header correctly:
IT’S TIME FOR CHIPTUNES = WIN VOLUME 2, PEOPLE.
And by volume 2 I mean the true sequel to the wide open, ALL chipartists invited, worldwide, monster compilation that we unleashed on the chipworld last summer.
Yup. That’s right. Open to EVERYBODY. And the submission deadline isn’t until June 17th, so you’ve ALL got plenty of time. ;)
For some details on the project, check out this video of me excitedly rambling about it:
Snarkyass monkey hat…. >_> THAT’S THE LAST TIME I WEAR YOU IN A VIDEO!!! :P
At any rate, for FULL info on the project (including many of the finer details that I failed to mention in the vid :3 ), give the project gdoc a good read here:
It’s damn hard to believe that it’s been nearly a year since this whole ChipWIN compilation business got started. And I can’t think of a better way to celebrate it than with this.
Enough chat!! LET’S DO IT TO IT, Y’ALL!! ^_^

PAX EAST 2013 IS NIGH (March 22-24th, i.e. THIS WEEKEND!!!)
AND I’M WAY TOO EXCITED TO TYPE UP A COHERENT INTRO TO THIS POST SO STRAIGHT TO THE RELEVANT DEETS:
Straight from the mouth of MAGFest’s very own Nick the Newbie:
“What in the ever loving shit is “Jamspace”? Jamspace is music all day every day during pax. We’ve got chiptunes, live video game cover bands, DJs, and even open jam time with provided instruments. We’ve got guitar, bass, drums, and keyboard for playing, or you can even bring your own instruments! Follow @MAGFest on twitter for updates of what’s going on all weekend.”
Regarding the bulk of the scheduled chipmusic shows happening in the Jamspace…
Boston8Bit is once again bringing a KILLER chiptune lineup to the PAX East Jamspace. In case you can’t read the SUPER SEKSAY flyer just to the left there, here’s the full Friday & Saturday 11:30am – 2:30pm EST lineup!
And if that’s not enough MOST EXCELLENT chipmusic for you (it’s NEVAR enough!), or you’d like a chance to perform your own chipmusic at an open mic event…
A very first for PAX East, the CHIPstage is essentially a separate Jamspace for chipartists & Djs! Bring your chippy and/or electronic jams & showcase ’em LIVE AT PAX!!!
On top of that, there’ll also be a good chance of any or all of the following happening at CHIPstage:
- random gaming &/or tourneys
- ridiculous contests (dickbutt drawing contest anyone? :3 )
- a guaranteed on stage suplex for every artist who suffers a DMG crash while performing (J/k! Maybe… ♥)
- really stupid dance offs (Hoodie shuffle comin’ ‘atcha! 8)
- VERY SPECIAL music events & guests
- WHO KNOWS WTF ELSE?!?
In summation, NONSTOP ZOMBOCON. 8)
What? Really? That’s still not enough? You want another party to go to on Saturday night?
WELL FINE HERE YOU GO~
This badasstastic music PARTAY is going down at The Cavern Club At The Hard Rock Café.
Doors at 8pm EST, $10 to get in. Tickets here.
What? You want a Sunday night afterparty too? OKAY!!!
LeaguePodcast & Rock On! Concerts Present:
This fantabulous shindig of WIN is happening at the Middle East Restaurant & Nightclub.
Doors at 7pm EST, $15 to get in. Tickets here.
Seriously y’all, if you don’t get enough VGM/chip jammage in & around PAX East this year (including the AWESOME PAX East main stage lineup HERE) IT’S NOBODY’S FAULT BUT YOUR OWN.
And if you can’t come, don’t be a sad panda about it! Just tune into geekbeatradio on UnregularRadio to catch the livestream of the FULL SCHEDULED JAMSPACE LINEUP (chip & VGM shows) & as much of the CHIPstage as they can grab! There’ll be *SOMETHING* PAX East broadcasting on the UR Fest channel throughout the whole party. GOOD TIMES.
I mean, srsly gaiz, THIS IS AN EPIC F*CKTON OF STUFF. We’re all probably going to survive PAXE 2013 this year, but JUST BARELY. 8) In other words…
~SEE YOU THERE~
EDIT: Just so this post has EVERYTHING (& just in case you don’t pay attention to the front page of the PAXE website… :3 ), here’s a schedule of the main stage acts as well!
