Attack of the Smoking Crows!
Skotein sent me this e-mail a while back and it sounds like a pretty neat project! Hi, Tomato! I’m a big fan of both Pokémon and MOTHER and have been running the Pokémon Reorchestrated project on YouTube and Facebook.

It’s been remixed and redone in all sorts of ways, but I think I just discovered my all-time favorite one here: Absolutely amazing job! For reference, here’s part of the video description: Produced by Lauren Henry Arranged and Orchestrated by Wayne Strange Al...Read More »
Somehow or other I stumbled upon what seems to be a rendition of the Natural Killer Cyborg battle music from MOTHER 3 as used in a Super Mario World hack. It’s got a slightly different feel to it since it uses different instrument samples, but I really like it a lot: I wonder what the response would’ve been if this song had actually been in Super Mario World or some other Super NES ga...Read More »
