Advice from the Volume 6 Judging Panel

Posted by

Sup y’all? =) Brandon here taking a month off from interviewing folk to provide an interim article regarding ‘Chiptunes = WIN: Volume 6‘! For any of y’all living under a rock, this year’s annual Volume competition opened up a couple months back and has a submission deadline of July 2nd this year. To possibly assist, I’ve once again collected thoughts from the year’s judging panel to share with y’all in hopes that maybe they’ll come in handy. And hey, this year I actually did it far enough ahead of time to potentially be useful. Not bad, huh? ;)

For those curious, read on below the hella nifty judges’ profile pic collage!

Sup y’all? =) President Hoodie here with, uh… no interview this month.

That’s right. I’m taking the month off from my Hoodie Highlights interview column post-MAGFest for my own mental health. haha

That said, there’s probably some of of you that have been reading my interviews over the last few months wondering why in the world I’m doing a mental health focused series in the first place. Figure here at the start of 2017 is as good a time as any to share a brief version of my story. Read on if you’re curious.

INCOMING TRANSMISSION


Hey ChipWINNERS!

Today, I finally got the chance to sit down with the man, the myth, the legend; Mr. Brandon L Hood aka “President Hoodie”, the founder of Chiptunes = WIN! Brandon has been helping us not only bring great chiptunes to the chipmusic community, but also moderating our community to be the best that it possibly can be.

I’ll skip the pleasantries and get right to the nitty gritty, and ask the hard hitting chiptune questions!

The President’s Manifesto: Beer & Chip Vol.7

Posted by

Sup y’all? =) President Hoodie here with the first of my beer and chiptune review columns in quite some time! I know, I know; you’re all wondering, “Brandon, what in the hell made you think to knock the dust off that ol’ thing and bring it back?” In a few words:

Shitty Miller Lite and Bud Melvin

Why Miller Lite? Who cares. It sucks (ratebeer.com actually gives it a zero lol).

The lengths I go to for chiptune journalism....

Let’s get on to the real reason for this article: the music. Specifically, Bud Melvin‘s latest release, ‘CNTRY & NESTRNT’.
