Ok, so the idea of this song is that an evil dude is having a monologue over the first 1:40 of the piece. He's setting up the race against time that the protagonist will have to do, essentially. The latter half IS that race against time. If the first 1:40 is boring you, that's because there should be some dark monologue over it. Maybe I'll actually go so far as to PUT a dark monologue over it at some point and update the file. =shrug=

Made this in a little over an hour out of boredom.

It's still super duper awesome. Times infinity. Plus thirty seven.

INTERESTING DETAILS: The song is in 4/4 time, and at 1:41 secs it changes to 3/3 for only one measure, to 3/4 for only one measure, and then returns to 4/4 with greater energy. Such a crazy and rapid change of time signature is not something I usually do, and it was a blast.

Here, have some fried chicken,

Very good

I felt as though I was approaching the midnight hour as I listened. The foreboding tone from 1:35 to 1:47 was interesting, and gave me an idea for a villain in a fanfiction story I'm writing. Amazing work.

Well there's anything that is truly close to my heart, it's my lungs. If there's anything else that's close to my heart, it's the advancement of the medium of fanfiction. Duh.
