I hate things like this. Lets highlight that its a woman composing the music.
Or things like 5 FEMALE game designers.
Who cares about gender yes I understand its seen still as quite a male role but thats changing and I for one can't wait for the day these kind of things stop.
Also they are really good composers :)
love Yoko Shimomura
what? no Yoko Kanno? list fails...
Women can compose music!!!???!?!
Next you'll be telling me they can walk and talk. (Sarcasm)
"Happen to be?!"
It reminds me of a George Carlin joke
"... Hey, he happens to be black.
Tell me this : Were the guy's parents black? Yes?
Okay, did they have sex? Yes? Okay.
So where does the surprise part comes in? I'd be more surprised if the guy was Scandinavian."
See? Also, no Yoko Kanno?! What in the....
