Anamanaguchi and USK (of Portalenz) bringing down the house at Tokyo Blip Fest 2011. This was one of my favorite videos I ever posted to GameSetWatch, which you might have heard is no more. I thought a lot about this performance today, but I don’t know why. I wish I was in that crowd here, that I was a part of this.
I wish I could have come up with some mind-blowing posts to end GameSetWatch’s run with, but instead, if you go there now or anytime in the future, you’ll see a round-up about pinball, some Katsuya Terada art, a funny look at blue and orange video game covers (from the awesome Danny Cowan), and a mock-up of Ponyo for GBC.
I need to make it out to a Blip Fest one of these days.

Official Blip Festival 2009 Winamp skin (.wsz download link). Do people still use Winamp? I hope so; it’s a great, uncomplicated program (provided you keep it trimmed down to just the essential components) for playing music. I’d still use it if I hadn’t made this MacBook my primary computer box last year.
Little known fact: before I brought my writing talents to the illustrious and high-paid profession of games journalism, I produced articles for the Nullsoft/Winamp team in a semi-official role, highlighting update releases, niche albums, custom skins, and other junk relevant to the community. It was a lot like what we do here!
Anyway, though we’ve been remiss with covering the upcoming chiptune festival, Blip Fest 2009 is less than two weeks away! If you can manage it, make sure you get your ass to NYC for the three-day event starting December 17th to hear and see some of the micromusic acts we rave about here all the time — Minusbaby, Leeni, Enso, No Carrier, Nullsleep, The J. Arthur Keenes Band, any many others.
