It’s my birthday and I’m 22 years young.

It’s about 1:30 am on the morning of my birthday and I’m up late working on Vis Dev homework. I tried out that new Google Talk today and got a kick out of the voice chat. I was surprised at how good it sounds compared to Ventrillo and Yahoo voice chat. The quality is pretty good.

I finished up the Music Page today and realized that I hadn’t really posted any new music since like the end of last year. So when I get the chance this weekend I’ll record a new song and post it. I’m thinking of doing Ahead On Our Way from FFV and/or a Chrono Cross and Chrono Trigger Prologue medley. I actually recorded a version of that called Turn the Page but then removed it from the music section because i felt it was too underdeveloped. The file is still stored on the site if you want to give it a listen in MP3 or MIDI format.

If you have a song in mind that you’d like me to record or learn, feel free to send me your requests in an email.
