This Month in The Overworld: Breezesquad

Posted by

This month’s chiptune artist is Synnoske Matsumi (マツミ シンノスケ), also known as Breezesquad! He is a creative and multifaceted artist that comes from the field of illustration, working as a cover artist for other established acts such as YMCK.

Straight from the lands of Fukuoka, a western city of Japan, Breezesquad started creating chiptune music specifically for his bachelor’s degree thesis, which questioned the relationship between music and visual design.

Chip Mom’s Kitchen #52: Gingerbread Stout Cupcakes

Posted by


At the last MAGFest, our dear friend Adam Seats gifted my hubby, Brandon, a truly decadent beer.

The unfortunate truth is that I don’t like beer. Unless, however, I can take that beer, combine it with a birthday celebration, and whip up a delicious batch of…

Chip Mom’s Kitchen #51: Oatmeal Lace Cookies

Let me be real here: Mama has a sweet tooth. I love to indulge in decadent chocolates, to savor my favorite cupcakes, and to revel in the artistry to be found on dessert blogs, Cooking Network, and British Bake off.

But sometimes I just need butter and sugar. In mah mouf. Yesterday.

For that my dear darlings, I give you…

THE CLOVER AWARDS: 2018

Posted by

The new year is in full swing – MAGFest has come and gone, Chipwrecked is preparing for another great lineup, and we’ve already got a few fun 2019 chiptune releases! But such an active community also makes for a lot you may have missed, and I’d like to give the last year a final sendoff before moving onto this one. I’m proud of the work I did in 2018, but there was a lot I didn’t get to talk about as well. This scene is bursting with music to enjoy and appreciate, so while I can only cover a small portion of it, I’d like to try and spotlight some tunes that deserve the attention.

Naturally, I will be doing this in the silliest way possible.

Chip Mom’s Kitchen #50: Seafoam Salad

Posted by

To celebrate the 50th installment of Chip Mom’s Kitchen, I’m taking things back to my roots. See, I am a Midwesty type person. I didn’t transplant myself to Arkansas until some handsome charmer stole me away from all I’d known so that we could raise fuzzy children, get engaged on stage at MAGFest, build a chiptune label, get married, and then (eventually) run away into the woods never to be seen or heard from again. BUT I DIGRESS.

Today I am making one of my family’s classic dishes…

Chip Mom’s Kitchen #48: Snickerdoodles

Posted by

Cooking for this article gives me a wonderful excuse to try to find new and different recipes that are not only delicious, but are often straight forward for the novice baker. I also like to find things that are quick to make because sometimes time is limited and we don’t want to spend the afternoon in the kitchen when we could be played Zelda or Hollow Knight or OneShot or Rocket League. But this month, I felt a call towards my traditional roots (and the Penzey’s Cinnamon in my cupboard), so we’re going to make…

Snickerdoodles!
