Metroid Tunes

Metroid was always one of my all time favorite games on the NES and I even loved the second game that appeared on the GameBoy, even though most fans of the franchise think it's the weakest of the games. Listening to some of the music that was played in these games, I can't help but marvel at how much these instrumental midi files are so ingrained into my brain. Just hearing the first note or two and I know all the sequential notes to following.

At this site,, you can hear the original versions of the music, plus a "Metal" version.

Adam Hughes - Anatomy of a Sketch

I found this a little while ago on someone else's blog pointing me to this blog entry. Ever wonder what it's like to be able to draw like one of the industry's top comic book artist? Yeah, me too. I even have a little talent of my own but I'm no where near where the professionals are. But still. Watching something like this, I can feel my creative juices wanting to flow. Makes me want to go home and pull out a sketchbook and do a little drawing.
