There was actually lots of news coming out of Anime Remix, but I forgot this blog was here. Some blogger I turned out to be!
Well, the big thing every year at Anime Remix is the halloween competition, and this year was no different. We got 4 entries, all of which are actually themes to villains! Except mine, of course, unless you count Mushi as villains. Xaleph won the contest with Orochimaru's Mansion, a... well, it's Xaleph, you know what it is. Psytrance. Next up Avaris busts out this cool digital cover of "Floating Museum" from Ghost in the Shell. I have the cleverest title of the bunch and was the only one to remix an anime that hasn't been on the site before, "The Shinen" which is both a punny book reference and the name of the original track with a "the" tacked on. There had to be a last place, unfortunately for Aktulua, but his Cell remix was still pretty awesome, and probably should've at least beaten mine. It was also the only non-electronic song of the whole competition, which is pretty refreshing since all we get these days are trance remixes.
Sorry for the long absence, dear one reader. I'll be back with the random youtube videos shortly.
On behalf of Nekomimi Music, I'd like to wish everyone a happy and exciting Christmas. Last year, Anime Remix got the benefit of an amazing remix of "The Snowman" by remixer sephfire. This year, we aren't quite so lucky, but Avaris of the anime remix forums has provided us with a little ambient remix of D.N.Angel, entitled "Ice and Dark". It's not exactly in keeping with the spirit of giving, but in a week or two when the holiday season is over and you're still freezing your toes off, you'll probably appreciate the concept a little more. ;) So go ahead and download now!

P.S. if you don't celebrate Christmas, I wish you a happy season anyway! You can drown your sorrows at being left out by listening to avaris's song.

--A) The remix must sound like a cold winter day AND be from an anime of your choice.
