Oh hi!


By more or less popular demand, I've released the music separately. You can snagg it from my myspace here:

Also, I've decided, much against common sense, to join the aniboom awards. Currently, it looks like Sebastians Voodoo will take the lead, which is completely normal, because Sebastians Voodoo is amazing. But it can't hurt to try. Feel to vote here:

As I stated in my original entry, I uploaded the track onto a myspacepage. Sadly though, myspace decided to remove the downloadfunctionality as of recently. I'm reasonably clueless to what other musicnetworks or something along those lines I could use, so for the time being, I'd suggest ripping it from myspace. :innocent:

1) being a DD significantly increases one's internetpenissize. =D
Yes, your e-peen must be huge now :XD:
2) People aren't too bothered with wrong aspect ratio's. Why this is displayed as anamorphic is beyond me. =|
That kind of thing is hard to notice if you don't know what it should be like o_ô;
3) I might have to consider releasing the soundtrack separately as people seem to like it.

I already took the audio stream out of it, a nice song to have playing in the background :nod: Hope you don't mind =)
