@figurehead00: You put words to everything I've been thinking today.
At one point I walked up to a fellow work colleague and explained the entire situation, feeling kinda silly about how depressed I was. I realize now, it's not silly at all. It feels comforting to know there are tons of other people just like me that were positively impacted by Ryan.
Maybe it wasn't a two-way conversation, but it doesn't lessen the importance and impact.
DJ Cutsman is a pretty good chiptune music maker. Some of it is more relaxing than other parts though, so it might be advantageous to create a custom playlist. Also: Get the Wii U grooves album, very chilled out.
Seriously, Maybe it's the fact that I don't dabble in chiptunes too much, but I've never heard of this guy and it's awesome. He does a pretty rad Deadmau5 cover too!
