I’ll probably post about this every Halloween for the rest of my life. Nearly four years ago in November of 2009 I composed and released a chiptune soundtrack to Kazuo Umezu’s incredible The Drifting Classroom manga. Such a stunning creative effort on my part caused my formerly vibrant body to become an exhumed husk, doomed to wheeze nothing but fumes for the years that would follow.
You can STILL listen to and download it for free. Play it at a Halloween party!
I’ve mentioned it before, but the REALLY AWESOME thing about The Drifting Classroom soundtrack is it’s 100% Kazuo Umezu approved! The rad dudes at the Tokyo Scum Brigade blog actually brought a copy to the master himself, who can be seen posing enthusiastically with it in his home in Japan.
The image above remains the coolest thing in the world to me.
