One of these days I'll make my profile look all nice and coolish, but I have to find a way to do that which isn't annoying and stills allows people to read the text without eyestrain.

Away for a bit

Our furnace has released some nasty toxic ash and all the vents need cleaned, so I'll be away and at a motel.

ffr submissions and Starshot

Okay, I'm at a point where I'm almost ready to say screw this, almost along the same lines of Starshot.

So my version of the Sparta remix, which is almost identical to hi19's but harder, was rejected for reasons I still don't get. Fine, I can deal with that.

But this latest rejection... leaves me at a loss for words. It seems that if a judge decides that this certain sound needs an arrow or that this is too easy/too hard/too unique/too repetitive, then it's rejected.

It's a bad cycle. You want fresh, innovative charts, and yet stick with rigid guidelines that it seems only the "favorite sons" can meet.

It wouldn't hurt FFR to get more independent music in. I've actually made efforts to secure you guys the rights of new artists. Doctor Steel, The Consortium of Genius, Funtastic Power, etc. However, it seems all FFR is for now is the same main artists. DJ Sharpnal and the lot is fine, but what happened to the days where we actually had real independent music like Excluded?

Simfiles are like a form of art to me, and it seems that the judges tend to act somewhat elitist like a gallery critic.

Will I regret making this post later? Probably. But right now, it needed to be said.

I love this video. I can't stop watching it.

Wise words from a wise man.

The following is directly quoted from Starshot's profile.

"I am sick of the way FFR is handling artists these days. Absolutely completely and totally fucking sick of it.

First and foremost, I'd like to think of myself as playing and being on FFR for a while. I joined back in December of 2004, thinking the flash game was well programmed and fun to play. I remember looking up to independent music artists and wanting compose and get my music into FFR like they did. I tried hard, learned different methods, and slowly evolved into the music artist I am today, being able to contend with the FFR artists who I once (and still do) looked up to.

With all that background put to rest inside your minds, allow me to continue with what I must say.

What I am seeing on FFR today brings me such disgust, that it is petrifying. The popularity that FFR has is caused it to corrupt, and ignore the independent artists that inhabit and built up FFR. People like SGX, The Fat's Sabboth, Kyle Ward, and Draigun. As of now, independent artists seem to be cast aside for the light of bigger, signed artists. FFR seems to be bowing down far too much to the populous of the site, and leaving undiscovered artists in the dust, when it once lifted them up on a podium for all to see. Yes, I understand that the site is growing bigger and more popular as more signed artists join the roster, but lets not forget from where we came from. All artists had to be independent at one point in time.

While that seems to be the main problem seems to focus on the populous, another problem seems to be on the completely opposite end of the spectrum.

As you know, FFR has a simfile selection team that goes through each file sent in during each batch. The files are then judged and those who the judges enjoy, get into FFR. However, therein lies the problem. Because of the fact that these people are judging it off the simple fact if they enjoyed it or not, is creating of enjoyment for certain players, and not the community as a whole. If one of the judges doesn't like it, it does not get in. While this is a relatively good system, it does not work in a large group. Lets face it, half the people on this site don't know what a "fun" file is.

Sadly, this has caused several artists, even though their composing and mastering skills are amazing, to be denied into the game, because the simfile that they made, or they didn't make, was not good enough for the game.

I know at this point I am merely ranting, but, seeing FFR as it is today compared to what it is now is truly a double edged sword. We have the power to get a hold of massive amounts of artists, yet we've let that get the best of us.

=O, wait really? I get $20 for stepping Inspector Gadget? Can I get $20 for each of my other files too!??!!? Haha, jk. Actually, I don't have a paypal and I'm too lazy to get one :(. Don't worry about it, it was a great pleasure stepping that song and I'm thankful enough that it got in game :).
