Piano Squall (thanks TangerineDream) - Piano Squall is a self-described "Game and Anime Pianist." That's the piano equivalent of a airliner pilot calling himself the "Crash and Die Pilot" and is in the same musical league as a Yoko Ono cover band. Why anyone would want to devote their musical career to covering the most inane music possible is a question that can only be answered by reading the many gaming-related forums on the Internet. Some people are actually dumb enough to buy this crap.

I put my whole heart into making GAME, and all I really want is for you to enjoy it. I know that the price is unusually low for a new CD, especially when all of the tracks are licensed, but music has never been about profit to me. I just want you to own it, hear it, and relive the emotions of playing these games and seeing these anime for the first time. To me, this is a performer's greatest reward.

I wonder if he was trained using the Naruto method. What sort of track-listing can we expect to find on this instant classic? Let's have a look!

A Final Fantasy Medley! This is going to be incredible! I only hope he can capture the soaring pathos of "Fight 2" and do justice to "Dr. Wily's Castle Stage 1."

    SkyMall Product Review: Bark Deterring Ultrasonic Collar

    Works great on my child, who hasn't barked at all for as long as she's worn the apparatus. When she turns three, we will remove it for a trial period.
