Intergalactic Redux Alliteration Contest!


We’ve had plenty [2] of coverage [3] for The OneUps’ new EP, Intergalactic Redux. Now we’re prepared to give away two copies to our readers! But to win, you’ll have to get a little funky yourself with some modern poetic techniques.

The following phrase appears on the back cover of the album, as well as on their bandcamp [4] page:

A collection of cosmic creations concocted for the most cognitive cochleae capable of conscious comprehension – re-imagined, re-arranged and re-recorded by The OneUps.

You know what’s happening there, right? It’s called alliteration [5]. Repeating the same sound at the beginning of each word.

Now, we’re willing to work with you a bit, so it doesn’t have to be strict alliteration. We’ll also accept assonance [6] and consonance [7] as long as you can make it really pronounced.

Come up with a sentence or two describing some game music, game music composer, and/or game music performer that you really admire. Make sure to use alliteration (or the related techniques described above). Post it in the comments section here, or on our Facebook [8] page. We’ll find it either way.

Two weeks from today (that’s February 24th) we’ll announce the winners. Will you be one of them? Give it your best shot, and be rewarded with this funky-fresh sextuplet of songs. That wasn’t even very good alliteration, but we’ll accept similar to that, so don’t stress! Just leave a comment and see what happens!

An ode to Kids Run Through the City:

A truly tranquil track tracing the trails of the intrepid travelers travels. Mellow melodies meld melodic memories into my membrane, the mere mention of menus makes my mind mention memoirs of medleys past.

I love alliteration for real. It’s my favorite English mechanic.

Mister Mustin. A manly, masculine man of monstrous mythology and mystery. Many men must merge to massacre the musical maestro of melodic mastery.

Mitsuda’s mighty musical motifs move me melodically. Chrono Cross’ cross-note chords carry cleanly and clearly while Xenogears’ xylophones’ zest zap zig-zags of zeal!

It’s true. šŸ™‚

Mr. Meguro, manipulating musical magnificence for Megami Tensei, makes my mind merry. I personally prefer his perfect Persona pieces, with their persistent pulsating polished purity.

Few fellas flex their futuristic funk muscles like the fine folks of the fantastic OneUps. A few friends from Fayetteville, these fiery funkmasters are far from VGM fandom neophytes. Fanboys are fortunate to have found such a fearsome force with a faithful focus on fine-tuned fusion and funk.

(Sure, you can certainly say Iā€™m a shameless suck-up. So sorry.)

…Did someone get chosen?

Oops. Picking winners got passed off to me! Our winners by random selection are So and Rapier838. Please email us at [9] with your contact information.

Man, these are some great entries. So, “Kids Run Through the City Corner” is one of my favorite tracks ever (it’s on my “sleep” playlist on my iPod). Joe, great job picking mustin, but does he really need more people to stroke his ego? ;D Dave, really? The letter z? Many kudos. Rapier, great work bringing in the less obvious, and Jack, yeah, you’re a suck-up, but that’s cool. I’m sure the band loves it.

We’re not BFF’s anymore, Jayson.

You should have bought this already, anyway. ;P
