Wii only care about the games ()

by fluffy at 5:10 PM
Instead of waiting for a Wii, I decided to be like Retro Thing and just get a GameCube. GameCube + generic wireless controller + huge memory card + 3 games = $200. When I finally do get a Wii I can use the controller and memory card purchases to keep playing those games on a Wii.

Strangely enough, nobody carries the really good games (Wind Waker or either Metroid Prime) anymore. So I got Paper Mario, Super Mario Sunshine (why is that game still readily available?) and Star Fox Assault (why is that game still readily available?). Guess I'll have to go to my alma mater to get the games I really wanted. Oh well.

Also it turns out that all GameCubes made after May 2004 only support 480i, and s-video at best. No component video, and no S/PDIF, because "less than one percent of GameCube players used this feature." Annoying. Oh well. Yet another reason to get a Wii when it actually becomes available.

Jamglue (, )

by fluffy at 3:04 AM
So, one of my former coworkers has been working on a startup called Jamglue, which is sort of like ccMixter only with a Flash-based mixing app built-in (the idea being that people can quickly throw together a mix or whatever). I've uploaded a bunch of my loops and song fragments to it, and people are doing some pretty cool stuff with it. I've also made a few mixes on there, one of which have been featured on a number of weblogs now.
