Bah, when did you get you PhD Dan?

I jokingly say to folks that I play a doctor (of music, I guess?) on stage, though am not one in real life... though I suppose I should go back to school and work toward a Ph.D. so I can be legitimate.

Either way, I like to create music and play out.

8. Guitar Frets Aug 30, 2011, 18:01 jdreyer
 
This seems pretty ridiculous to me. I'm all for protecting the endangered trees and forests, but having to prove your guitar was made a certain year, or go to jail just seems stupid. How many old guitars are out there without a certificate of production? The vast majority, I would imagine.

It also seems that one tree could provide the bridges or fretboards for literally thousands of guitars...

Women Fighters In Reasonable Armor. Where's the fun in that?

You missed the obvious comeback, Stephen: "Tits or GTFO!"

Hmm, I dunno, more armor might be more fun. More anticipation taking it off piece by piece. If she's mostly naked already, well...

So I just saw a commercial wherein four grown men in their early thirties were sitting around a living room playing Starfox 64 3D on their 3DS's. Is NOA's PR comprised of the dregs of the PR industry or do they sincerely think thirty-year-old men who love Starfox are their target demographic?

Eh, the Advertisement/PR guys have 2 things going for them.

1 - Sell the point that it's not just a kids toy
They want the 30-something Alpha Consumers to buy it for themselves; and they have to get past the stigma that it might be a kids toy/game. "Hey, those guys didn't look too embarassed on TV, I shouldn't be either. I'm gonna pick up a 3DS." Or at least, that's what the PR guys are seeing in their heads. It's kind of like how Cadillac re-did their Catera/CTS line as their SUVs to be younger looking... they're fighting the stigma that Caddies are old-man-cars.

2 - Star Fox Fans = guys in their 20s/30s.
Face it, the main Star Fox fans are going to be the ones that played it on SNES and MAYBE N64... and most of those people are in their 20s or 30s. So you advertise the game to the people that would want it, AND you once again tap the Alpha Consumer.
You start to go olderthan that, and you get "what's a star fox?"
You'd probably get the same reaction mentioning the game "Burger Time." Both are and heller-fun and were popular for their time, but only really reached a certain generation. They don't have the CRITICAL MASS popularity of frogger/mario/etc.

Thanks, Blue!

I'm actually looking to compose more - paid work, hopefully - for games, and maaaaybe short films/movies, but more so because I like to make music... so if one might allow me to shamelessly plug:

http://drdk.bandcamp.com (Check out the album on the right, too!)

Sincerely,
