Currently performing: Alex Powrs

LSDJ Showdown – Ends Tonight!

May 31, 2012 in Events, Site News

This is your last chance to submit something to the LSDJ Showdown. We stop accepting submissions tonight, at 3AM EST (GMT-5).

I’d like to remind everyone that you may submit 2 songs this year, instead of just one. Get it in before 3AM EST or it won’t be counted.

Finalists will be announced asap, and the judges will score the finalists over the next couple weeks, before we announce the winners.

Bazaar Day 29 – Final Contests (3 Days Left)

May 30, 2012 in Events, Site News

Contest day, everyone’s fave.

________________________________________________________

This is the last contest day. The LSDJ SHOWDOWN also ends on Thursday. I’d like to use this oppurtunity to remind everyone that competitors may submit 2 songs each this year.

The Video Contest has been extended until Thursday.

This week’s contest: We thought we’d keep it simple. We’re doing a 2-day Webcomic challenge, from which 3 winners will be selected. All 3 winners will recieve a NoiChan T-shirt, but the grand-prize winner will also recieve 1 64MB rewritable EMS cartridge.

The Rules: This is reminiscent of our mikee photoshop contests. Webcomics must be about how awesome Mikee is. Each comic must be 500px wide, have a maximum height of 4000px or less, and must be at least 3 frames long. You can draw Mikee, or find some of his photos online, to photoshop. The deadline for submission is midnight EST (GMT-5) on Thursday, May 31st.

I’ve done an example, below:

#1 (NoiChan WebComic)" src="http://www.noisechannel.org/wp-content/uploads/2012/05/mrtvftw1g.gif" alt="" width="500" height="1650" />

To enter the contest: Please upload your file somewhere (your NoiChan image album is fine) and post the link in the comments section below.  You may submit as many comics as you like, but you can only win once.

Bazaar – The Lost Days

May 30, 2012 in Events, Site News

Sorry about the days we missed for the bazaar, they would’ve been Sunday, The day of illumination (Day 27) and Monday, movie night (Day 28). I was at Blipfest and Mikee was too busy wearing Armani, drinking champagne, and making calls from the air-phone.

We’ll just have to make it up to you throughout year 2, I guess, and keep moving foreward…

Which brings me to Day 29 of the Bazaar.

Wailord Wins the Animated Banner Contest

May 24, 2012 in Events, Site News

Well, only 3 of our banner submissions met the filesize criteria for the animated banner contest:

If you’d asked me a week ago if I thought “DogChan” would win it, I would’ve never guessed, but it did, and wailord will be laughing all the way to the mailbox and back, when he picks up his free cart.

Special thanks to DSV101 for being a stallion and following the rules, and of course, huge kisses go out to Spry, for being the badass who inspired this whole competition. We’ll send you guys something cool too, but we’re not sure what yet. :p

The famitracker contest winner will be announced shortly. That’s all for now.

LSDJ Showdown – Last Year’s Finalists

May 24, 2012 in Events, Random

The first LSDJ Showdown was before NoiChan even existed. It was held on Mikee’s old site, which hosted a videogame podcast. The site was controllerthrow.com (now defunct) and the event was known as the CTUK LSDJ Showdown.

We had 35 entries, which we narrowed down to 10 finalists. We ended up having a tie for 3rd place, right down to the decimal, which resulted in 4 winners instead of the 3 we had planned for originally.

Here are the songs:

Je Mappelle – Missing Thought (1st)

 

Zef – Livewire (2nd)

 

an0va – Meteor Shower (3rd)

 

TreyFrey – Brown Eyes (3rd)

 

Kosmopop2 – Teal (008080) (4th)

 

Ralp – Yrche Vhul (5th)

 

Comptroller – Z-Bombs (6th)

 

DJ Cats – Blue (7th)

 

DYLANBROCHILL – Squirtles in Time (8th)

 

Bubu – The End of a Long Story (9th)

 

You can view the judges scorecards here.

Bazaar Day 23 (Gaming Night)

May 23, 2012 in Events, Site News

Wednesday night is gaming night.

____________________________________________________________

Every Wednesday I try and dig up some free multiplayer games, for our users to enjoy. We feel this is a good way for NoiChan users to get to know eachother, make friends, and eventually work on projects together. Even if that doesn’t happen, games are still pretty sweet, so I dug up a couple of big lists containing dozens of free games. Hopefully some of you will find something that you enjoy.

MMO Attack

Free MMORPG List

Of course, we’re still running an awesome Minecraft server, which Solarbear set up for us. Alot of our members have joined and are participating in the building contest Mikee Teevee is hosting over there. Go check it out:

Server Name: NoiseChannel.org

Server Address: 66.85.168.58:25570

Bazaar Day 22 (Contests)

May 23, 2012 in Events, Site News

Contest Day, all y’alls fave.

_______________________________________________________________

Today’s contest is a FamiTracker contest! Write the best song using famitracker, and win a free NoiChan T-shirt. We’re calling this the NoiChan FamiTracker Showdown, just for fun. Please limite songs to 6 minutes max. Click the link for full details.

This weeks contest is a video production contest. Use any video production software (windows movie maker is fine) and post your video to the video section, the video itself may contain anything you’d like (no censorship involved) but the audio must be one of your own chiptunes. Hopefully the song will rule, but we’ll judge the contest based on the strength of the video alone. Please limit videos to 6 minutes max, or 64MB.

Our main event is of course, the NoiChan LSDJ Showdown. This event will run all month. This is an LSDJ songwriting competition. We have 10 amazing judges, and 3 winners will receive awesome prizes. The deadline for submission 3AM, Eastern (GMT-5), on Friday, Jun 1st.

We will announce a winner to the animated banner contest once our staff have had a chance to vote, hopefully tomorrow.
