On hiatus...

Thu, 20 Aug 2009 18:56:51 PDT

Dear listeners,

Okay, so we have some good news and some bad news. The bad news is that VGDJ is about to take a break for a little while. The good news, however, is that we will be back... and hopefully with more interviews and special features than ever. While we have fun releasing a weekly show, we also don't want to burn out... and we don't want YOU guys to burn out. After all, if you think about it, TV shows don't run a new episode every single week- maybe half the weeks in a year.

We'll still be here on the forums and on IRC, of course. And we do really appreciate all of you who listen to the show, have donated money, bought a t-shirt, left us a voicemail, clicked on our ads (when we still had 'em), sent us feedback, or even just voted for us on podcast alley. You make this show worth doing. We just need a breather. Until then: take care, guys!

This week on the show all about the music and community of OverClocked ReMix:

Happy Thanksgiving to all you Americans! Hope you're enjoying yourselves and consuming large quantities of food. Or, if you're not American, we hope you're enjoying the thought of us consuming large quantities of food. In either case, it's time for another VIDEOCAST! All the OCR community news and music you normally get, but in living color!!! This week, we offer you VGpiece Theater, a presentation of the highest calibre. We'll also be doing a live t-shirt and CD giveaway to anyone who filled out our survey!

* Note: 066 is a ~200mb download, so dialup users beware! *

VGDJ: Episode #065 Chicks in the Mix

This week on the show all about the music and community of OverClocked ReMix:

Maximum excitement! We're stuffing ourselves in preparation for Thanksgiving, and that means lots of video game music community hotness for you. This episode marks a small format change for us, and it comes with the announcement of an exciting new phone-based feature we've set up. We also managed to track down one of the most elusive OCR females on the site for an exclusive interview! Plus, two debut ReMixes from DrumUltimA and Swedish mixer AeroZ, and... a new report? Better watch that booty!!!

>>> Take the VGDJ survey, give us your feedback, and get the chance of winning a free OCR or VGDJ t-shirt! <<<

(We were giving away VGDJ buttons, but we didn't realize how many responses we'd get, so only the first hundred or so people will receive them. Still, everyone has a chance to win a t-shirt!)

VGDJ: Episode #064

This week on the show all about the music and community of OverClocked ReMix:

Ah, sixty four episodes of VGDJ; that number is great in a lot of ways, not the least of which is its inclusion in "Nintendo 64." That alone should be reason enough for any self-respecting video game music fan to grab this show. Despite zircon and pixie being busy with school, operas, and Final Fantasy XII (not necessarily in that order), 064 is feature-length and filled with sumptuous chunks of community kibbles n' bits. Yum. Oh, and there's a nifty little surprise relating to our previous news post, too. 4 out of 5 Dr. Marios agree: 064 is good for you.

Congratulations, zircon!

Tue, 07 Nov 2006 19:22:29 PST

Our very own zircon has won "Best Techno Album," and first AND third place in the "Best Techno Song" category of the 2006 Just Plain Folk Music Awards!!! If you haven't heard "Tomorrow" and "Acid Dominion" off his original album, Impulse Prime, better get your hands on 'em. This is perhaps the most well known and prestigious of the indie music awards, focusing on the talent up and coming artists. (He even beat out the guy that composed the music for Command & Conquer! Can I get a what what?)

Congrats to yooooooouuuuuuuu!!!



VGDJ: Episode #063

This week on the show all about the music and community of OverClocked ReMix:

Soooo, pixietricks and zircon are back to being the only two hosts on VGDJ, and all is right in the world of video game music.... or something to that effect. Due to the looming spectre of "Real Life," this episode could be deemed a "Lean Pocket" compared to some of our previous ones- minus the disgusting reheated meat, of course. But we still have an abundance of half-off Halloween goodies for ya, including some remix reviews, the Russian ReMix Roulette, our latest contest winners, and a tantalizing peek into the personal lives of your hosts. Oh yeah, and wouldja VOTE for us at PodcastAlley for the month of November? We likes our voteses.

This week on the show all about the music and community of OverClocked ReMix:

Uh oh, pixietricks is missing! What is a zircon to do? Why, call upon an old friend that longtime listeners of our show should remember; Fusion2004! If you're not familiar, he runs his own radio show about video game music and is the main coder for ThaSauce (which in and of itself is about video games and VGM). We figured he'd make a fine guest host while our dear pixietricks attends to all matters Peabodian. So, ladies, enjoy this male-only foray into the wonderful world of OCR while you can! And if two male hosts aren't enough, all three (male) minihosts are back on board too ;) Mmm.. testosterone.

Like, video games? Video game music? Umm, like, that's SOOO dorky! But we don't care! Even though djpretzel and Rama have been lazing around, we've been joined by a special guest to spice things up; it's Doug "DrumUltimA" Perry! And not just on a short segment either. He's here to assist us with every aspect of Episode 061, from the remix roulette, to MAGFest coverage, to our new Halloween Cosplay Contest. YEP! Surely you didn't think we'd let all of you steadfast video game fans go more than a week without giving you more chances to win some more swag, did you? You download! You download show!

Hokay! So. It's a couple weeks into October - sorry about the slight delay - but we've got a veritable cornucopia of OCR community goodness in this episode. Besides the conclusion to the contest we started in Episode 059 (and there's a slight twist!), djp has generously provided us with a whopping SIX ReMixes for us to review. And there's all that other fun stuff too, like reports, the RRR, MAGFest 5 coverage, old people, sniffly people, Russian people, and additional zaniness of varying types. If you want to get your October started fo' real, then look no further than Episode 060!

No show this week.

Thu, 12 Oct 2006 02:06:54 PDT

Unfortunately, our very own Bear has fallen ill, rendering him in not quite the best condition to record Episode 060 :( So, we won't have a show for ya this week... but don't worry. He'll be better and all caught up on work by next week. Oh yeah, and this also means that if you want to submit an entry to our current contest (see Episode 059 for more details), you have until NEXT Wednesday, October 11th, at noon EST to submit your entry.

See ya next Saturday!

That's right, kiddies. We wanted to give the start of this month a kick in the butt, so we've released another little videocast in order to dominate the Podcast Alley lists, oh baby, oh baby. So lend us your votes right now, and together we'll get October rolling!

This week on the show all about the music and community of OverClocked ReMix:

What doth the end of September bring for VGDJ? Seek, and ye shall find... Episode 059. This show may be one of our shortest in recent times (less than 30mb!), but we've still got your wacky, weekly hookup to the OCR community. The compo scene is finally heating up, we get to talk about our friends the tentacles again (though, in a slightly different way), and perhaps most notably, we have a new contest giving away some newly printed OCR shirts/hoodies! What's it about, you ask? Why, download the show, and hear for yourself.

This week on the show all about the music and community of OverClocked ReMix:

It's an adventure in adjudication with judges and zircon and pixietricks! OMG it's true, our very own pixie is now one of the few, the proud, the OCR judges - along with big giant circles, who we managed to grab for a candid interview about week 1 of being a shtyjudgfgt. But we haven't forgotten our roots, no sir-ee! We're in full gear with three brand spankin' new ReMix Reviews, including a clip from mastah guitarist Sixto. Plus, the OCR compo scene has seen a bit of a shocker for the first time in months, and even DrumUltimA brings us some surprises in his meetup report. There's even more, but it is up to you to acquire Episode 058 and unlock the mystery yourself. Huzzah!

This week on the show all about the music and community of OverClocked ReMix:

Alright, who kidnapped zircon and pixietricks this week and replaced them with these bozos? Well, apparently someone who likes Aussies, hoo hoos, and transparent red pantyhoes... for starters. Clocking in at just over an hour, this fully featured episode can best be described as "fat and sassy." Our latest lollygags cover all the bases, from our recent Game Music Radio interview, to the latest ReMixes on OCR (including a clip from new shttyjdgfgt big giant circles), to quite possibly the weirdest Russian ReMix Roulette ever. Not to mention, dicemaster zircon has cooked up a new episode of the Flow Basket for your listening pleasure! All in all, 057 might be a little out in left field, but hey, five hours of sleep can do that to ya. ;)

"The Next Level" Promo feat. VGDJ!

Thu, 14 Sep 2006 12:11:19 PDT

'Twas a night like any other night in the quiet halls of VGDJ, until we got a little something in our email. Turns out our good friends Becky and Brian over at Game Music Radio have created a promo 'bumper' for their show "The Next Level," focusing on our recent interview with them (see news post below). Not only is the promo really well made, but it's hilarious too. We should commission these guys to do a stinger or two for us. ;)

Check out the promo MP3 here!

P.S. Perhaps thanks to said GMR interview, we've yet again broken our record of daily readers: 1135! Not only that, but we have steadfastly remained in the overall top 10 over at PodcastAlley— halfway through the month and we're still going strong! So thanks as always for your support. We love you guys like cake. Or cookies. Or any other kind of remixer fuel you can possibly imagine!

Weening you from our Monday schedule

Mon, 18 Sep 2006 01:37:36 PDT

Hello hello! Pixie here, bringing you the glorious news that our segment on Game Music Radio's "The Next Level" has been released! The show, hosted by Becky Young (marketing coordinator of Video Games Live) and Brian DiDomenico (cool guy with a VG music band) features weekly interviews with game music composers, musicians, and the like. We know our schedule change may have come as a shock to you, so hopefully this will help to ease the transition. ^_~

Tune in for the inside scoop on how VGDJ was created and received in the ocremix community, some music and remixing techniques from zircon and myself, a kick-ass little retro game music quiz, aaaaaaand the exclusive debut of our Final Fantasy 7 remix collaboration, Deliverance of the Heart! The interview was a blast, and we'd like to thank Brian and Becky again for inviting us on the show. Be sure to take advantage of all Game Music Radio has to offer at their website!

We've recorded a little audio announcement in case anyone wants instructions for picking up the interview. Also cuz we love to talk to ya... :B Enjoy!

Not only that, but you'll also discover the secret ingredient that powers every great ReMixer, the true origins of "zircon" and "pixietricks", and what will undoubtedly be the greatest pickup line you will ever hear.
