First week of January I said, but that was pretty fast right? I thought that everyone would be busy wrapping things up at the end of the year, so I decided to publish the new song on the first of January instead. So here we are!
Let’s start 2021 with a classic Super Mario All-Stars medley. Since that is a compilation of games, it features tunes from Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros. 2, Super Mario Bros. 3 and even an exclusive song that’s only found in this game compilation. Super Mario’s 35th anniversary ends in March, so this still counts as a contribution, right!?
The video was once again a premiere, thanks to everyone who tuned in!
Super Mario All-Stars was actually my first video game ever, so it’s quite special to me. So I decided to ignore the 3D games and focus on the classics this time.
And that’s that. Now how do we proceed? Don’t expect a weekly upload schedule, but I definitely want to make more tunes than last year – that shouldn’t be too difficult…
Oh hi there – long time no see! Wait, that’s my fault? Huh…oh would you look at the date, I think it’s time for this year’s X-Mas Mix! Brace yourself for Homekoming!
The Snowmads meet K. Rool and the crew in this mix that doesn’t care that it’s an X-Mas Mix – no chilling allowed, let’s get LOUD! To name the songs that you can expect: we got Homecoming Hijinx (Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze), K. Rool Returns (title theme from Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest) and a very short bit from the Island Map theme, Welcome to Crocodile Isle.
Without further ado, let’s hear it:
The video was actually a Premiere this time, thank you to all of you who watched it with me. It was kind of a spontaneous idea, so sorry for the short notice – but I feel like we should do this more often, it sure was fun!
I do love the DK stuff, and I don’t think I can pull off another final mix in time this year. So let this be the final bang of 2020, I think it’s worthy of that title.
Now I feel like doing some rambling, so if ya wanna here it, keep reading – otherwise you can skip right to the end 😉
It sure was an odd year, this one – didn’t get much done of the things that I wanted to get done. Oof. That actually has nothing to do with the whole virus situation, in case you were wondering. Just kind of felt like taking a step back and it was harder to get back to it than I expected.
Sticking to a schedule is hard, especially if you’re doing creative stuff. But if you just let it slide every time you’ll get nothing done. At least for me that’s how it is. That’s why we got the April Fools’ mix, Halloween Mix and X-Mas Mix, but barely anything else this time…that’s not even close enough for a Best Of album this year!
I do have some half-finished mixes in the back and some tunes that I could turn into a full mix – and some remakes I really want to do. But the Best Of mixes are still a thing as well, can’t just let that single one stand there like that. You see, there’s enough stuff to keep going, might even upload something again soon. Maybe if I promise I’ll actually do it? Ok, First week of January it is then. Thanks for reading through my rambling, now let’s wrap this up.
I wish all of you a Merry Christmas, and if you don’t hear from me in a month: send Link! 😉
I did say last time that I’d be back for another Halloween Mix at least! Well, here we go: Night of the Undead!
This year we’re going with zombies, featuring thrilling tunes such as Brainiac Maniac (Plants vs Zombies), Disco Zombie (Earthworm Jim 3D), La Danse Macabre (Shovel Knight), Run Run Rottytops (Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse), Mad Monster Mansion (Banjo-Kazooie) and most prominently Michael Jackson’s Thriller. Now, let’s cut to the chase:
Let’s not forget the video starring Racing Queen Rottytops:
Don’t ask me what I’m gonna do next (or when), I have no idea! But something will come around eventually during these trying times, yes?
Despite al that, let me wish you a Happy Halloween! 😉
