Matt and I were both involved in a music scene in Dallas called Laptop Deathmatch. In fact, that’s how we met. The Deathmatches happened every few months and consisted of around 8-12 electronic musicians wielding laptops and MIDI controllers, blasting out electronic beats of all kinds and being judged by fellow musicians and the reaction of the crowd. This went on for a few years and eventually our group of musicians grew tight. We formed bonds based on friendly competition, being exposed to each other’s music styles and tastes, and inspiring each other to try new things and act more boldly. It was amazing to watch everyone’s music and stage presence improve over time.
Apart from inspiring each other through observation, the Deathmatch champions inspired though their success. Matt had an amazing winning...
Just another normal day in Austin, no big deal. The GL33k crew walking to lunch spots 100 or so Marios walking around together. Walking to lunch we suppose, probably, taking a break from their grueling transition to 3D.
It's a little known fact that Austin is one of the Mario capitals of the world. We're proud of it. When we see these Marios on the streets of downtown Austin, we're like, "Yo, Marios, hi-five bros (and lady-Mario broettes), Seriously, you go, Marios"
We're way down with the Marios.
Recorded some dry ice today. Got tons of great source! We, at GL33k, are also completely dedicated to the principle of safety first (I don't recommend breathing in an entire 10 lb. block of frozen carbon dioxide. I kind of felt like I was one of the fellas on the Apollo 13 mission...).
I promise it's there :) WAY down under Best Sound Editing: COMPUTER INTERACTIVE ENTERTAINMENT.
Although I've never actually recieved the physical reward this was a cool project and process to be a part of. Someday if I actually get a physical statue I'll most likely make it a lever to unlock my secret base.
Technically I should have put this up a LONG time ago but I didn't probably becuase we're almost always ridiculously busy. However, I've made a commitment to actually updating our webiste more often. This is commitment in action friends. This is dedication.
I knew it was only a matter of time before we got in to doing a Facebook game. Well the game is out and its pretty addictive. The game is called Triple Town and it was developed by our friends over at Spry Fox. I'm going to go ahead and recommend you give it a go :) Chris Carroll took care of this one with his mad UI skills and his weird ability to talk without opening his mouth.
