Was at Portland Retro Gaming Expo this weekend, my favorite find was Falcom Neo Classic, complete with obi, registration card, and bonus disc. The discs have been aggressively resurfaced, but at least that means they play properly.

I found a CD Walkman (D-FJ210) at a nearby booth for $18, including batteries and pouch. This will hopefully end a series of variously lousy CD players, holding up great so far!

I also spent some time recently working out how to archive the old psf_rippers Yahoo Group. All of the old attachments are gone, so I have to see if I still have any in a backup. If anyone reading this still has 'em, let me know.

I ran across someone trying to archive a Turkish music group, I was able to provide some help there.

I ran across a copy of Jami Sieber's Lush Mechanique yesterday at a record store, I remembered seeing that title in the tags of the Braid soundtrack ("Undercurrent", also "The Darkening Ground"). I didn't know it was published on disc!

Also in the cello section I found the Portland Cello Project's album Thousand Words, I was familar with the first track "Denmark" (I'd heard them perform it in the Rose Garden amphitheatre over the summer, though it sounded familiar even then). The second track is a Halo arrangement!

@hcs None of the music in Braid was actually made for the game; it was all previously made but chosen for Braid since the creator wanted music that wouldn’t loop constantly since the puzzles require you to sit there for hours to figure them out, plus they’d be the least annoying when reversing time constantly ;)

Yep I'm aware, I'd just thought it was "stock" music that was only published for licensing, not released as albums. I hadn't realized that "Undercurrent" was from 1994, so even if that was the case (and I don't think it was), the best way to distribute it would be by CD.

I believe Undercurrent is a mix of three classical folk songs, couldn’t tell you which ones though

Almost 10 seconds further tonight!

Whee, new personal high score 181:12
Around 176 the song loops, had been aiming for that.

Edit to replace the original upload, which had major transcoding issues.

New high score, 256:38 on Easy mode (no vid this time). I think I may have been mistaken in thinking that Easy goes up to the same top speed as Hard, it doesn't really feel that way, but these things are really squishy subjectively. It seemed almost like it slowed down once the song looped.
