@Bosco, thanks!
Glad some of you liked the little Halloween shenanigans. Wolkenkrabber's idea with Flatnose's Clown was awesome, hadn't thought of that!

So if there's no rejection of some more seasonal adjustments every now and then, I could give it a go. Ideas are more than welcome!

I missed the bats but they’re awesome.

(I will try to edit the theme later on my desktop.)

And yes, seasonal tweaks are welcome, Csar!
Uh… everything’s perfectly all right now. We’re fine. We’re all fine here now, thank you. How are you?

Is there a BITE clip out there that can be used? I'm not an artist or animator by any stretch of the imagination :) The laser as Christmas tree sounds cool.

Here's a cheap Xmas variant of our upcoming new forum theme I put together to get an impression of what it could feel like.

Dude, Csar great touch with the forum!!  ;D You have my vote and I’m excited to see the enhancements you put in place here!

And nice work with the makeup, too!
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.

Turns out it wasn't an animation!! This was made in 2015 for that Christmas Mix, buuuut there are some promotional animations made for BITE at one point without the Xmas motif

Loving the new theme/icons as well! Will miss sunglasses guy (or as we call him in the discord server, Jerry), but gosh this is so much fun already

So no idea where to post this and i don't want to open up a new thread, so...

What's the story behind this Morning Lemon Mashup/Remix? It's been on the Chems Soundcloud for 10 years now


no idea, no idea

I've found the promos for BITE. In the meantime, I opted for the Christmas laser tree after I had found a decent video with a rather steady capture of it.

Thanks! Well, don't worry. Jerry is not gone, it was just me haveing fun playing around with some variations to try something new. At one point, I also had the lunging-out-horse from their 2002 sets. It doesn't need to stay that way. I won't impose my own preference as I consider this a by-fans-for-fans thing. So if you want him back, he'll be back.

Egg Nog Szn!!! One of the most guiltiest of empty calorie beverages!

We are lucky here in Midwest to have a regional dairy (Oberweis) that makes some of the best Egg Nog you can find.

Happy formal Thanksgiving to all my United States peeps, and to my forum peeps around the world. Thankful for this place of nerdy gathering. Amen!

Oh Thanksgiving = Egg Nog? I thought that was a Christmas thing. Well Happy Egg Nog day, Americans.
(Empty calories? Eggs are full of protein and healthy Omega 3 fatty acids!)



Mixmag's social media has decided to throw a 2020 article at me that I missed at the time:

The best basslines in dance music
No Billie Jean? What about the Chems? Are they there?

Incidentally, Dub Be Good To Me is a perfectly acceptable track choice, but it might be worth mentioning that the bassline is originally from a Clash record.

Egg Nog highly nutritious just like frozen custard  ;)

Egg Nog still very much a Christmas thing, but it starts becoming widely available at grocery stores over here in early November. Thanksgiving is kinda the kickoff for Christmas parties, even though its own separate Holiday. Not unusual to see Egg Nog at Thanksgiving festivities, at least where I'm from.

They're in there (which, I'm guessing you knew but hid strategically as a cheeky click-bait.

Agree with some. But that whole list feels more like a 'remember this song, that has a bassline?'.
I'd argue Fogma from the same album as Superstylin' is a much better bassline.
And, as a Moloko fan, I have never listened to Time Is Now and thought to myself, "Yes, I can't wait for this bassline to take me over!"

Honorable mention should go to Junior Senior - Move Your Feet. Now THAT is a bassline.

Cute list, but it's Thriller (which from a quick scroll they failed to mention).

Find me someone that dislikes Thriller, and I'll point to the most miserable person on earth.

So basically Quincy Jones is king of Basslines
