Marking Our 14th Anniversary / Where Things Stand Now / Correspondence Reminder for 2/19/2024

Posted by Merit Celaire on Saturday, February 17, 2024 - 01:46 PM

Snagging the chance this afternoon to let you awesome and faithful friends/followers of these beloved music operations as a whole know that on this day fourteen years ago, yours truly started this endeavor doing Super Nintendo music styled covers of modern songs from certain Super Mario series game installments (main, spinoff, and branched). And despite some setbacks that I'm currently dealing with at this time (which were already elaborated on in previous posts), I'm still on that mission today and haven't regretted any moment of the process. Once again, I still thank the Lord for giving me this musical talent in general that I never take for granted and I also thank those of you who are still supporting yours truly who are both fans of Nintendo's Super Mario video game series as a whole, as well as those who also share that same passion with me to do the Super Nintendo music styled treatment of the "modern" Mario series game installments to this day (from the Nintendo Wii consoles all the way up to the Nintendo Switch console). Here's hoping we'll make it to the 15th anniversary next year!

Now to do a quick follow-up on where things stand at this time: first, during the course of one to two days ago, yours truly has managed to get the necessary backups of this site and other related backend materials up to date (which was announced here). Now the only hope is that during the second half of this month (and especially after the upcoming "President's Day" holiday on Monday), we can get things rolling on getting new music arrangement cover content posted. As you can see from our "Music Arrangements Progress Page", I'm hoping that we can get the upcoming stuff targeting songs from WarioWare: Smooth Moves and Mario Kart Tour posted on their respective pages before the end of this month. Remember that there were a few "hints" that were given in regards to what I might have been targeting as of late song wise between the two games; if you haven't seen those "clues" in question, please refer to this previous post.

And finally, although I'm still currently in the "weekend mode" at this time, I must remind you all that this coming Monday is a holiday as well (more specifically, "President's Day"); so that means that any music operations related correspondence from you all that gets received between now and 2/19/2024 will be reviewed the following Tuesday (2/20/2024). Just also keep in mind that I'm still dealing with getting some other major setbacks at this time, which especially includes the issues I have with Discord and my account that was hacked nearly month ago (which also is the reason why our invite link form is still temporarily closed at this time; more details can be read here if you didn't check that announcement out yet). You're still able to get a hold of me on any of the other active online forms which can be accessed from this page, however.

That's all for now as I have to step out and switch gears back to my general "weekend mode" routine. But once again, many thanks to all of you who are still standing with me on these passionate endeavors fourteen years later, and here's to many more Super Nintendo music styled arrangement covers of modern Super Mario (main/spinoff/brached) songs to come. Take care until next time around, awesome people; I'm out.

"Valentine's Day" Greetings for 2024 / Where Things Stand So Far on the Backend

Posted by Merit Celaire on Wednesday, February 14, 2024 - 01:39 PM

Good afternoon, friends; just snagging the opportunity to write this blog entry posting and give a shoutout to all of you on this awesome "Valentine's Day". That being said already, I'm still hard at work on the backend dealing with operations material backups as we speak; progress has been made in terms of getting the entire site backed up during the course of yesterday. I just have to find the time hopefully later on tonight or during the course of tomorrow to get my "tracker source files" backup disc up to date before I proceed with finally preparing to start our new music arrangement content postings for 2024 (after we have marked our "anniversary" itself in just a few days from now). 

So far, the plan is according to our "Music Arrangement Progress Page" to get the latest stuff that I worked on targeting songs from "WarioWare: Smooth Moves" and "Mario Kart Tour" posted and cleared off the backlog there. Details are still under lock and key so far in regards to what has been targeted, but here are a few hints:

* For WarioWare: Smooth Moves, the "batch" is targeting an overall "theme" for yet another microgame host who is female.
* For Mario Kart Tour, the music cover that I was working on is targeting an alternate "varient" of a highly addictive course theme song (and no, I didn't have to call on the Spider-Man and the X-Men: Arcade's Revenge instrument set to do this one!).

As always, when the stuff does get posted onto their respective pages on this site, I'll let you all know.

Finally, although I might elaborate on this further in future posts, you all remember when I stated on this "Year in Review (2023)" article that "[a certain game] in question definitely has my attention big time" which "has a late March 2024 release date attached to it"? Well, if you all guessed Princess Peach: Showtime!, then that is the upcoming installment in question that I've been referring to. Nintendo has slightly upped the ante marketing wise to let us know what we can prepare for regarding said game, and they even did Valentine's Day cards to go with it too, which can be seen here via the Play Nintendo website. And of course, for more details regarding the game itself in question including the story/objective and such, it can be found here. (Now if we can only find out who the composer(s) for this game musical score is/are so we can get the green light to start the planning process for upcoming music covers here; the late March 2024 date itself can't come soon enough!)

Until then, I have to end this here because I have to sadly switch gears and prepare for work obligations later on this afternoon. But as always, if you have any further questions in regards to what has been shared on this posting itself, please don't hesitate to send an email my direction so I can get back to you upon reviewing the correspondence. See you all later.

Site / Music Operations Materials Backup Efforts Scheduled for 2/12/2024 - 2/16/2024

Posted by Merit Celaire on Friday, February 9, 2024 - 03:22 PM

Good afternoon, everyone; this posting is to let all of you know that during the course of next week (and depending on my overall planbook's schedule including some incoming work obligations that I need to deal with outside of here), we're hoping to get our backups of this site and all other music operations related materials up to date, especially before our "anniversary day" hits later on this month. 

This is to ensure that should yet another extinuating circumstance happen with this site and other related materials, we'll be ready with at least one "recent backup" to call on.

I still will be checking on any email correspondence that may be received from our respective online forms including the main site contact form, the plagiarism report form, and the two suggestion forms. Rest assured that I'll find time during this process to respond to any legitimate inquiries music operations related upon review. It's just that yours truly is going to be bracing for an eventful work week itself when this coming Monday arrives (which also includes the Discord account crisis that I elaborated on nearly three weeks ago).

Thanks once again for your patience and understanding on this, and I'll see you awesome people later.

Quick Follow-Up On Upcoming Music Operations Stuff (As Of 2/9/2024)

Posted by Merit Celaire on Friday, February 9, 2024 - 09:43 AM

Good morning, friends; just snagging the time to give you all a quick follow-up on what has been happening with yours truly on the backend music operations wise. Yes, I'm still fighting to make progress for the "anniversary month" of February, but as you all are already aware, the major thing that has been literally holding me back from attacking the planbook full force is my account issues with Discord (and I am still waiting to hear back from the "Trust and Safety" department about my active ticket; it's been nearly three weeks since getting word about my respective Discord account being hacked by an apparently cyber criminal and I can't log into it at all). 

But as I said in a previous blog entry post here, I still must press forward even though the "process" from the backend might be a bit slower than usual. I'm hoping to see about updating the "Music Arrangements Progress Page" later on today; however, I'm still hard at work getting new possible song candidates for my planbook to do Super Nintendo music styled tracker work on. It's one of the major angles that's still keeping me sane for the most part and as I said before, I don't take this God-given musical talent for granted. (Along with my still being a huge fan of Nintendo's Super Mario video game series still to this day.)

Case in point: no guarantees at this time, but it looks like we might have something to share with you during the course of next week. Rumor has it that there might be a certain something targeting another batch of songs from WarioWare: Smooth Moves and I might recheck on more stuff from WarioWare: Get It Together! Stay tuned as the days forge ahead.

The one hope is still this: to get new Super Nintendo music styled arrangement content posted prior to our anniversary itself later on this month. You still don't want to miss out on when the new postings do go live; in the meantime, I honestly thank you all in advance for your understanding and patience during this difficult time for me in trying to get certain angles sorted out outside of these endeavors as a whole. But as stated earlier, we are pressing forward, but slowly. See you all again later; until then, I'm out.
