and it said that Mega Ran is now OFFICIALLY LICENSED by the Big C!
this is pretty amazing news to me, I mean, the company responsible for Chun Li, has not only heard my stuff, but has approved.
So what does this mean? Hmmm... I don't have to worry about my myspace page being deleted :) Maybe we can see that Japanese tour with backing. Who knows?...but, knowing you are not gonna get sued has to be the best feeling in the world.
Some of yall heard the album already - purchased or downloaded. so if you haven't, do yourself a favor and help me celebrate!

A while back, I had a little search for the perfect "Grow Up" remix.
I got some good submissions.
I got some great submissions.
I got some submissions that should've probably stayed unsubmitted. :)
just kidding, I love all you guys.
So what I'll do is get my Simon Cowell on, and rate these bad boys and tell you why it is or isn't the one.
I'll put the best one on my player, so I need you guys' help!
The San Remix
What I liked: that he probably never listened to the original.
What I didn't like: that he sampled...no drums..um.... everything. This just doesn't work. Thanks for playing, San.
The Ascension Music Remix feat/ Dan Poh
What I liked: Dan's verse. cool idea, I liked it.
What I didn't like: I can't shake the feeling that this one is off beat a little. I can't catch it.
The Fingaz Remix.
what I liked: Those drums!! very nice!
What i didn't like: the same as most of them: the chorus just didn't work. but with some re-working, this could be it.
The AntiSoc Remix.
What I liked: Everything...very very nice.
What I didn't like: it was the chorus, but he fixed it... great stuff.
The Storyville Remix.
What I liked: very musical, really cool
What I didn't like: well, I don't know. I like this a lot.
The Jonato7 Remix.
A very late submission, but well worth the wait.
What I liked: Awesome, kept the 8 bit feel intact.
What I didn't like: nothing. Down to the hook, he nailed it. nice job IMO.
