Chip Mom’s Kitchen #40: Oreo Mini Cheesecakes

Posted by

Every once in a while the infernal notification machine that is Facebook throws something worth while at me gives me an idea that temporarily justifies its continued ruinous existence.

What’s this? A delectable delite that I wanted to remember from forever ago? Thanks, Zucc, you actually did something right for a change! Time to make some…

Oreo Mini Cheesecakes!

Guérin’s Dissections: ‘Jumper’ by Foxx + [BONUS] ‘solo’ by Je Mappelle

Posted by

Sometimes, you just need a good album to play in the background of your daily tasks. Sometimes you need a lowekey song to just relax in bed with. Sometimes you need to listen to ‘Jumper’ by Foxx. His style has always been some brand of chill with a few hectic songs thrown in for good measure, but this album turns the dimmers low and lights the fireplace for you to stretch out and unwind to. Let’s just sit and chat for a bit about this adorable album.

Chiptunes = WIN: Volume 6 [Tracks 11-20]

Posted by

Welcome to the second round of track reviews for Volume 6! I’ll be taking you through some of the best that this Volume has to offer. I didn’t know that by choosing this review date I’d get to talk about YZYX, Kubbi, Vince Kaichan, Starving GOGO (whom I’ve previously reviewed), and my good friend and collaborator Auxcide, but I’ll just consider myself lucky. I’m glad I sat this year out to witness the awesome that is Volume 6. This should be fun. ;3

Chip Mom’s Kitchen #39: Strawberry Icebox Cake

Posted by

So this is what the weather looks like in Arkansas right now:

Needless to say, I feel absolutely no desire to turn on my oven! That can’t keep the yummies from my tummies. So today, I made a three ingredient desert that requires your fridge instead…

Strawberry Icebox Cake!

Guérin’s Dissections: ‘Obstreperous’ by Dr. Zilog

Posted by

Dr. Zilog have been making chip metal for a while. They’re one of the oldest acts in the modern scene and have stuck around for a reason. In their latest album, ‘Obstreperous’, they’ve created yet another classic, heavy album full of memorable solos and masterful composition. Join me as I dive into Zilog’s newest offerings.

ChipWIN-tern Presents: YM2017

Posted by

Howdy-ho friends! Newcomers to the blog might not know about the soft spot I have for FM synthesis, but rest assured that any time I get a chance to talk about someone doing cool chiptunes on the Genesis (or any of the other myriad ways someone might achieve that around these parts), I jump at the chance!  If you add in someone doing something for the good of the community, well, let me tell you, there aren’t many better ways to brighten my day. A few weeks ago, David DeGraw, an enterprising purveyor of fine Game Boy audio accessories, announced that he was putting together a compilation for tunes to play on the Sega Genesis and Nomad.  I took some time to interview him, and without further ado, I’d like to tell you all about the YM2017 compilation project hitting your vintage Sega consoles this August!
