NOTE: Loosly related to Monkey Island on the basis that we should appreicate old games - for example: Monkey Island, Tetris, Donkey Kong Country.

Hey guys, currently playing my good old SNES's DK games (I've beaten DKC2, on my way in 3 will do it for 1 and then cheat to make it impossibly hard for 2 and 3). That should keep me ocupied for the time being? WRONG.

What to stop me playing Bubsy, Mario Allstars and The Secret of Evermore? And beating them all too?

Whats more the best music on my computer (mind you I do not have a MIDI-syncroniser (how primative) are all MIDIS from old video games. Well with the exception of "THE TIMELORDS" (retro DrWho song), that aside I've decided to start sharing with you guys. I shall weed out all the coolest MIDIs I can find and put them on my site which currently only has a few. Some additions I could make include themes from SONIC, BUBSY and DOUBLE DRAGON.

Tell me, what do you guys think?

I want the HAMMER theme from 1981(?) Donkey Kong... you know where you pick up the hammer and play that primative annoying music they used in Smash Bros?

The Dr. Mario themes aren't all necesarilly good, but they're really catchy.

The Smash Bros Melee rendition of "Fever" I think it is, is really nice. Reminds me of a Trapezoid song actually.

Oh yeah, and of course the Tetris (TM) music. That is fantastic. Those "remixes" of Russian music... brilliant.

Honestly, I like the music in Final Fantasy III and Chrono Trigger, especially the battle victory music in FF3.

Hey that's cool, you wouldn't know the whereabouts of any Donkey Kong Racing music files would you (you have to love that Jungle Theme... which for now I'll assume is diffrent to Smash Melee's).

Okay, I added some MIDIs to my site, and a nice "random play" feature, I'll weed out some more cool MIDIs at I get the chance.

On a COMPLEATLY unrelated matter I replaced my into-page with a picture of LeChuck on a dark blue background (like the one on mojo's home page only nicer). I got jelious since the cut out was better then my cut outs on the title line, so I made a cut out (and modified it to remove the rope and extend the suit a litte) and it's MUCH better then mojo's, I'm so proud...

Mek, nothing happens when I click your intro pic.

Really? It's just an ordinary hyperlink around an image (set to blur on mouseover for IE users). You have to wait for the next page to mostly load before it's displayed (once again if you're using IE) because of the transition....

Still, at least you got to see the pic!

Thankyou for that Jake, I stuck it in after Trap complained about it not working, I'm glad to hear it works now. By the way what browser do you use (I use IE5.5)?
