NEW YEAR, NEW ZOOFIGHTS

OH GOD HOW DID IT GET TO BE 2011 ALREADY I AM NOT GOOD WITH TIME

 

Yes, it's a new year and the top minds at the Zoofights Corporation have been hauled bodily from their hibernation cocoons and revived with whiskey and violence.  BUT WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR YOU?

 

Well for one thing, FORUMS!  Yes, this year we will have official Zoofights forums, to replace the current system of note passing and feces throwing we have been relying on.  Those of you following via the SomethingAwful forums, rest assured that there will still be a GBS megathread running alongside.

 

What else?  Well ask not what Zoofights can do for you, but what you can do for Zoofights, because ZOOFIGHTS NEEDS MUSIC!

For the past three years the long-suffering Gravitas Shortfall has had to scrabble for whatever impressive or fitting music YouTube would allow him to upload, but for 2011 he's  suddenly remembered that the hidden in the readers may be some extremely talented musicians that might like to help out. And a lot of people that just like howling into microphones or doodling about on keyboards. Plus,  the earlier it's set in motion, the less ropey the video can be!

Technically we only need one (maybe two) tracks to base an intro around, but we thought it would be cool to have a whole bunch of Zoofights themed music, the more contributions the merrier. We can pimp the hell out of them and their composers when May rolls around and Zoofights VI kicks into gear, and use them for any videos or animations that pop up.

Any followers of Zoofights will know that the contributing artists have a massive amount of freedom (typically all they get is a short descriptive sentence), and the music side of things shouldn't be any different. If anyone is interested in contributing, consider the following questions the only guidelines.

What if Zoofights was a TOTALLY AWESOME action movie?
OR
What if Zoofights was a KICKIN RAD animated series?
OR
What if your favorite beast had its own theme song?
OR
What if your favorite match had theme music to go with the bruting?

And that's it. Really, any contributions will have us hooting like apes from the rooftops, regardless of quality.
For example; The Steamcrab Sea Shanty. CAN YE DO BETTER THAN THIS?

 

AWESOME, HOW CAN I CONTRIBUTE?

The best way to do this would be upload your track to tindeck, then drop an email to zoofights4@gmail.com with the subject ZOOFIGHTS 6 MUSIC.  Or can attach the track or WIP to the email if you don't want to use tindeck.

 

We'll keep informed of any updates, but rest assured, events have commenced like a trade marked digital ape wearing a tie!
