Katamari on the Rocks
  • Katamari on the Rocks
  • Random Encounter, Feat. Many Guest Artists

If you would have told me two years ago that I would record a song from Katamari Damacy that featured Stemage (Metroid Metal), brentalfloss, Phil Robertson, Under Polaris, Amanda Lepre, dogs, cats, pirates, NY traffic, a famous opera singer, pigs, my car horn, a very irate badger, and 80 people singing in unison at A Comic Shop I’d have called you a liar.

This song is my Katamari and I hope it becomes a nice star one day.

The Ultimate TRON Playlist

On my iTunes/iPod, I have a playlist that I have entitled The Ultimate Tron Playlist. It’s where I’ve put ALLLLL of my Official or Semi-Official Tron music so I can listen to it all on shuffle. It’s pretty epic, but I’m worried I’m missing some stuff, because of how they released the TRON: Legacy soundtrack, and maybe I missed some unreleased TRON: REC0NF1GUR3D tracks that the artists themselves gave out.

So, here’s what I have in my Ultimate Tron Playlist. Look through and enjoy, see if there’s anything you’re missing, and let me know if I’m missing anything (except for “Separate Ways” by Journey. I already know I’m missing that).

First, the Big Three:

Note that my TRON: Legacy soundtrack includes “Sea of Simulation”, the Amazon exclusive, “Father and Son,” the iTunes exclusive, and “Sunrise Prelude,” the Nokia Ovi exclusive (which I got from a friend, and you can probably find a download around YouTube or something). I also have “Encom Part I” and “Encom Part II”, “Round One,” “Castor,” and “Reflections.” I got those from another music site that had them listed.

Next, everyone’s favorite TV show, TRON: Uprising

Also note that if you go to Joseph Trapanese’s Facebook page, you can download what is titled “TRON: Uprising Hero EP” featuring a bunch of tracks from the show that aren’t in the main album. They are also in my playlist.

Now for some oddities.

The Official TRON: Evolution Soundtrack

It was released ONLY on Vinyl and FREE digital Download through Soundcloud. seven tracks mixed from the in-game music.


This came out literally DAYS ago. A Disney lover’s remix album. It has two songs from Legacy featured, a Remix of “Derezzed” (which is actually the same as the one by Avicii on the REC0NF1GUR3D album, but with LYRICS) and a remix of “Fall”. I just bought the two TRON tracks.

Okay, from the official, to the Semi-Official

TRON 2.0 Soundtrack

There are a lot of these floating around out there. I found the tracklist that a person on Flickr made to go with this album cover and took some chunks and edited them together to make them fit. I would be more than happy to give this sort of fanmade album to whoever owns the game.

Priority One: The Music of TRON

This is a cover album done by a guy called Stemage. He takes the original TRON soundtrack and puts some killer electric guitar to it, so it earned a spot on my playlist.

So am I missing anything?

Stevie Gee for WE-GO Japan


Popped in for a little meeting this afternoon with Will Robinson who owns ‘Stem Agency’ and is also proprietor of Trackside Studio in London Fields.  They have just moved and their new digs are fantastic in the Laundry Building on Mare St.



He let me try out my new Sunpak flash on him that turned up in the post this morning.  Ebay £11.50…. Happy!

The SML Podcast - Episode 82: Bogetendo

Download Episode 82

It’s been a long time coming, but new intro theme! It was created by the wonderful Grant Henry, also known as Stemage and the creator of Metroid Metal! There are a few more tweaks he’s going to do on the song, but I couldn’t help but give it a test go this week!

Anyway, for the show, Boge is back! Not only that, but we have an email from Zak as well! That’s pretty much all you need to know about this episode, especially if you’ve heard any other episode where Zak emailed us.

For real though, we touch on the wave of Nintendo news that happened shortly after our show last week which includes the Mario Kart 8 DLC, the New Nintendo 3DS reveal, Xenoblade going portable, Smash Bros. rumors and confirmations, and so much more!

We end the show with a quick wrap up of the Sony news that came from their pre-TGS event as well as what we’ve been playing recently. Spoiler: There’s a lot of Diablo still being played…

Music this week honors the Mario Kart 8 DLC by revisiting the very first Super Mario Kart game on the SNES thanks to SML Podcast favorites The OneUps.

The OneUps - Battle Mode (Super Mario Kart)
The OneUps - Ghost Valley (Super Mario Kart)
