And the monster, the creator, the GIANT of all shows on the food network? Iron Chef America. If you're not familiar with this show, what you'll see is a couple of kitchen areas in the middle of a stadium. Two chefs descend upon these kitchens to go head-to-head as they compete to delight the judges' taste buds and hopeful eyes--all while sticking to a "secret ingredient." This inevitably leads to strange things like a meal of lobster salad, lobster soup, lobster lobster, and lobster ice cream . . . or perhaps steak salad, steak soup, steak steak, and steak cake! you get the gist.
What does this have to do with Wizard101?
nothing. I just wanted to make you hungry for steak cake.
Ok, actually, it does have something to do with our Wizard101 Composer, Nelson Everhart! Nelson has been selected as one of the composers to compete in the IRON COMPOSER competition at the upcoming Austin GDC. Here's the link to the Austin GDC website that talks about the competition. And now, the quote from their website:
Three months before the event, each participant will be given a description of The Mystery Game. During those three months, they will prepare a sampler full of sounds and music. On the day of the session, each competitor will have a turn at playing their prepared sound set live, while audience volunteers play the game.
But there is one twist: The Secret Ingredient! Whose composition will reign supreme?!
Oh man, that sounds like an awesome 60 minutes of the Austin GDC. Too bad it's like 800 bucks to attend.
Best of luck to our music composer, Nelson Everhart! Here's to hoping your secret ingredient isn't the accordion!
