    Akira

    Well the film is known to be about Hiroshima/Nagasaki, and even Simon Pegg admitted on television he had no idea what the film was about. Possibly it was about nukes as a result of domination, and we have to escape the cycle... or actually go extinct as a species.

    The best ROMhacks...

    Debate Dude. One of my favourite ever videogames. Zophar lists this as a minor hack, but the entire text is re-written to something which actually fun. https://www.zophar.net/hacks/nes/dragon-warrior-1.html Html emu: http://www.8bbit.com/debate-dude-dragon-warrior-hack

    Akira

    Tetsuo isn't a monster. Kaneda is the monster and he pretty much admits to his weakness that he has to dominate others in other to have self worth. Maybe you missed the moment during the film he absorbs the final remains of Tetsuo as the tiny spark, and feels envy that he managed to escape the infinite circles of power that humans inflict on one other. It's about how punks always become 'the man' and you see it coming. And the previous ones saw it coming, but it happens all over again anyway.

    Akira is worthwhile therapy to remember that the 90's could be really stupid. You only played videogames that the gang leader said you could, and your reputation was worthless without proper Shimano gears. Gears?! Holy crap. And when I bought a cycle computer people thought I was a scary Einstein.

    Amiga boot for comparison. Rainbows woo.

    Screenshots of RD8 boot rom thing. It isn't grandiose like an Amiga intro but has a lot of longevity, since ten months later I'm not bored. Possibly this relates to the fact that when I was 7, all you got was a single YOYO and like a legendary sword that was it... you never needed another toy, and it was your own failure for not learning every possible trick. Later on a lot of teenagers progressed to something called a Diabolo and we got amazingly obsessed about that -- I ended up best of my town at some useless thing everyone forgot. Flicking a bit of plastic around with sticks? But wow... for the odd minute of demonstrating your elite skills, the amount of validation you got was epic. And then it takes about 8 months to impress everyone again. The record for entertainment value is Worms, since we were still playing this 7 years later due to the heavily moddable nature of it, and it was the first thing that got everyone at my school obsessed with Web, when I put extra content on their floppy disk. Download...able...con...tent....wow... In comparison to the Amiga bootloader it does quite well, and fairly economical at 10 machine instructions. C code is at least 22 per command - okay I cheated with GPU functions, but so did Amiga.

    Interesting. It makes me imagine a Texan boy left in a car with no windows open, out in some remote Walmart carpark. He tries to keep sane by playing Warioland but half passes out and then his dog, which is actually a local coyote that learned to talk english in occasional howls starts trying to lick his face, but confuses him with the Gameboy out of heat insanity and starts trying to eat the plastic. But then the car goes dark as a giant robot coyote eats the car like Jurassic Park. And the kid trips out on the radio left on... waking up to discover that he's really Tom Cruise having a midlife crisis in some remote desert whorehouse he basically detests, and just sits giving it evil stares from half a mile away sitting on his car roof.

    Constructive critisism is that The City Above sounds depressed, but I find this interesting for being different. It's like a story in which Deckard from Bladerunner says no to the police chief and goes for a cheeseburger... so for once, I have no idea where the story goes. What will he do next?

    I made a new Skrillex track using QBsynth and Audacity. It alienates the original 'Elvis dad' audience by being antithesis dubstep, and in terms of a radio-play features myself and all the dubstep fans in a mass execution with approximately the same structure as Kill Everyone, so in accordance with the lovely lyrics... I want to kill everybody in the world I want to eat your heart I want to kill everybody in the world I want to eat your heart ... we all die via the ending of Transformers episode Heavy Metal War. Ordinarily Megatron pokes his head out of the lava and states with Flash Gorden relish 'We shall rise! ... again!'. But considering this is me, Decepticons now somewhat realistically melt a hole in their torso, repeatedly puke up lava, eventually choke on it like a heroin overdose, proceed to drown in red hot magma and eventually die of electronic asphyxiation. All to a Victorian style dancehall tango (I think?). My use of Audiacity this time has been much more haiku, since it only has around 6 operations done to the track.

    I made you a track: mixes yourself, an Artpop sabotage and Rebirth software parody with: Half Life, Half life 2, Tempest, Tempest 2000, Hornby, Madonna and jean michael jarre. Presumably this ends up being rehashed by Zedd, Kylie and Justin Timberlake at some point, so you'll hear it like movie trailer 3 minute compression anyway.
