Play: A Video Game Symphony

I just got back from it.   I have to say, great concert.  Only little complaints I’d have are that the sound system was a little crappy, and they severely under-utilized the ginormous monitors above the orchestra.

A few comments though

1) Sonic the Hedgehog music was not meant to be performed by a symphony orchestra, and doesn’t sound right that way

2) You haven’t heard One Winged Angel until you’ve heard it performed live by a full orchestra (and lemme again send out a big FUCK YOU to Video Games Live for having the very same song performed by some schmuck on a piano and two women when there was a full goddamned symphony orchestra not 10 feet behind them)

3) The Chrono Trigger/Chrono Cross medley was one of the greatest things I have ever heard.

Also, I have to ask what the hell the people running it were thinking when they sold T-shirts to a video game music concert, sure to be extremely popular amongst big fat geeks, and didn’t bother getting ANY bigger than Large.  You’d think the people who organized Dear Friends and More Friends would know better than that, but apparently not.

Clerks 2

Not as bad as I was afraid it would be, but still nowwhere near as good as the first one.    Unless you’re gonna pirate it, though- wait for the DVD.

Livejournal is acting weird

For some reason unknown to me, Livejournal decided to re-add the last few things I posted to this journal to the bobzygala feed. They’re, like, old and stuff, but it’s putting them on people’s friends pages as if they were new.  And it’s making me look a lot more active here than I really am.  I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or not.
