My Bio
So yeah, I finally joined up on this site. I've known about it for a while, but never gave it much thought until very recently, since I always had my own little website. But, I figured it was about time.

My main areas of work are graphite drawing, and pixel work. The former, I've been doing since I was in grade school. The latter, I started up as a hobby about ten years ago and stuck with it. I'm not that great at animating original characters, but with editing sprites and creating original backgrounds, I think I do pretty well. I've been a member of the OverClocked Remix community under the screen name "The Coop" for many years now, making remixes of older video game music (mostly of Sega Genesis games), and I still dabble in it once in a while. I've also been active on SEGA-16 under that same name, writing reviews for the site and making animated banners for it. I would have used "The Coop" here, but it was already taken, so I had to go with this variant.

So yeah, that's about the gist of it. I'll be uploading my stuff in chunks, and be trying to keep them organized. Hope you guys and gals will like some of what you see.


On a side note, I've been updating the video game mixes I've made over the years, and putting them on my YouTube account. You can listen to them, and any new ones I make, here...

A slightly belated Merry Christmas.

A slightly belated Merry Christmas.

So... yeah. I meant to do this yesterday evening, but after falling ill and enjoying all the aches and hacking that comes with it, the idea slipped my mind. Just wanted to wish every one of my followers, along with those who just randomly stop by, a Merry Christmas, a Happy Hanukkah, a Joyful Kwanzaa, and of course, a Happy New Year. I also wanted to say a big "thanks" to everyone who's liked, favorited and watched my channel over the last year. I know things slowed down thanks to the holidays, work and such, but rest assured, I do have plenty of stuff to upload once I have the time (the folder with all of the signatures I've made for people

Entry On DA Street III: Journal Warriors

So after mulling it over for a good while, and finding all sorts of excuses to not do it, I finally sat down and decided to begin going back over the remixes I've made over the last 13 years. HISTORY TIME! Well before I began posting remixes anywhere, I was basically making them on a half-sized keyboard that was bought for me by my parents one Christmas. I learned songs from Master of Monsters, Ghouls 'N Ghosts, Altered Beast, Necromaner, Thunder Force III, Castlevania II: Simon's Quest, and a number of other games, transforming the songs into what amounted to piano solo pieces. I got decent at it, but at the time, I never thought about reco

What the... he wrote a second entry?

What the... he wrote a second entry?

Yes, it's been over two years, and I finally sat down and wrote a new entry for this thing. I'm on a roll! I know I haven't been all that active lately around these parts, but some of that was because of work, and some of it because I was trying to track down as much of my work as I could. It took forever (or close to it), but I finally gathered up at least most of the old and oldish animated gifs and such that I've done over the years. And now, I can finally start uploading it. It'll go in spurts, but "new" stuff is coming to this account. Most of it will be signatures that I made for people years ago, but other stuff that's a bit tough to
