-My MIDI teacher is a self proclaimed geek and thus he gave us a reality show assignment:

"You were in the right place at the right time and a software developer has asked you to create some sample music for a video game project. Things are moving quickly, though, so you must create your sample immediately if you want to be considered for the gig.
Using Reason and/or Garageband, create a 60 second long sample that could be used as background music for an action side-scrolling shoot-em-up video game. The game is set on a desolate space station fighting evil zombie alien killing machines. Create music that seems appropriate for that setting.
In order to level the playing field, only software found in the lab is fair for use. That means Reason Adapted, Garageband, and other programs found on the lab machines. The full version of Reason and any other software you may have at home is OUT OF BOUNDS.
Grading is simple. There will be 1 winner per class, who will get an automatic 100% for the project and immunity on an upcoming quiz of their choice (in other words, they don't have to take it and get full credit). Four "runner-up" students in each class will get 95% on the project. Everyone else turning in a project will score 85%. Failure to complete a project will result in a 0.
Submit an mp3 of your finished project. Results will be announced on Thursday, Oct. 19.

-I was only mildly into the project at first but it turns out I really like scoring and sound tracking, because I haven't had this much fun on an assignment in a while. So with my new found passion I plan on throwing my card at as many digital media kids as possible in hopes that I'll be able to compose for some projects so I can build up my experience and resume.

I basically listened to Hip Tanaka relentlessly before I did my project. I'll post it later. I have some work to do.

-David is coming into town this weekend so we're going to have fun!... and do drugs...kill stuff, whatev.
