Mega Man and the completely self serving post

Self serving to say the least, but hey it's my dern blog! rekkonize!  My first game system was an Atari 2600, then one Christmas I received the glory of glories: my very own NES (Nintendo Entertainment System)! In their hay day The good folks over at Nintendo had it going on musically with game loops and riffs that have permanently implanted themselves in our cerebral cortex(don't really know if that's physiologically the proper spot).   Ogeretsu Kun, Manami Ietel, and Yuukichan's Papa
were the three who composed both Mega Man 1 and Mega Man 2 and are both stellar compositions. Impressively complicated in parts, they are catchy and, with the onslaught of the 80's synth electro resurrection, they are ironicaly right in-step with the present musical movement. Love it!!! Remixes of this junk are everywhere on the imternet (some excellent and many grotequely idiotic).  Check here for all you nerds for the latest in good and awful video game remixes: Overclocked Remix

Above is a super fun remix and vid of Mega Man 2's Dr. Wiley stage.  This exhibition of rewired nostalgia has been brought to you by none other than Johan Agebjörn, producer of Sally Shapiro.
