Hey there, MadHatter here! I was going to make a video expressing my gratitude for the results like I do every year, but unfortunately my camera has decided to die out on me.
I still have to take time and give props where needed, though… So here we go!
This year, we raised an amazing total of $1,124! Good lawd, y’all! Excellent work. SO excellent.
First of all, thank you to the people that only had the time or budget to simply spread the word. You were so important to this drive! With so many people doing the Extra Life charity nowadays, there are a lot of teams out there and your word of mouth helps us be one of the best.
Also, a big thanks to those of you who joined the musicians on our label, tackling games throughout the 25 hour period. Some of you didn’t get a chance to sign up but still gamed anyway as a show of support, and some of you made it official my becoming a part of the team this year – I’m looking at you, Collin Lavrinc, Daniel Harned, Tom-Tom, Dylan Saunders, Will Landers, Sina Mashek, Christina Carter, and Andy Beck!
And of course, I have to thank our gracious pledges, who tossed their money into the collection to directly help kids in Children’s Miracle Hospitals. Without your contributions, this charity would be mostly fruitless. So I thank you so much for giving your hard earned money to those in need. Y’all are truly angels – Kyle Humfield, William White, Cassandra Swenson, Bad Servo, Joshua Edmonds, William Gattis, Rafe Haddox, Dustin Hulsizer, Moggins Wut, Alex Robinson, Mary Holder, Barbara Smith, MC_Loki, Salson Media, Carla Landers, Andrea Piernock, Thom Staples, Dylan Nagan, Jamie Pettit, Ben Vosatka, Cory Kliewer, Alex Alarcon, Andrew McDermeit, Troy Lund, Colton Harding, James Marione, and Corinne Cooley.
Here’s the high scores:
Most money raised:
- MadHatter ($265)
- StarF ($254)
- 2 Mello ($205)
- Collin Lavrinc ($115)
- Daniel Harned ($65)
- Tom-Tom, Dylan Saunders, and Will Landers ($50)
- King Pheenix ($40)
- Sina Mashek ($25)
- Maros ($5)
A three way tie this year, each with $100 apiece – Kyle Humfield, William White, and Collin Lavrinc – You guys are incredible! You each will get an upcoming Humble Bundle as a token of thanks.
Much respect for another wonderful year of charity. Doing one of these every year helps me feel that what Scrub Club is doing is the right thing. It proves our listeners and supports get what we’re trying to do here, and y’all keep us going with donations and keep kids and families going that desperately need it with the money you can spare. We’re all looking to make the planet a better place through music and community. And you all are the BEST community, so we will continue to give you the best music in appreciation.
Scrub Club artists King Pheenix and StarF knock it out of the park with this Hip Hop single dedicated to Breaking Bad. This is OUR empire! This is OUR damned business!
“Empire Business” includes a killer theme remix beat by Untested Methods.

We are on a mission to save kids through video games (as strange as that may first sound), and we need your help!
Each Scrub Club artist or supporter participating has chosen a Children’s Miracle Network hospital local to them where thousands of children are treated each year, regardless of their family’s ability to pay. These kids are facing horrible stuff like cancer, cystic fibrosis, and injuries from accidents, just to name a few.
On November 2nd, we are going to play in an epic 25 hour video game marathon to gain attention and get the word out, and we’re hoping that you’ll find it in your heart to support us with a donation that will go directly to these chosen hospitals.

It’s that time of year again… Grab your costumes and your old-ass McDonald’s Happy Meal ghost and pumpkin buckets and get ready to party!

This perpetual release is like a trick or treat bag for your ears, full of every piece of All Hallows Eve flavor. Every twisted, gory, disgusting song that our artists have done over the years that matches the holiday is in this album, including past favorites as well as brand new material. It ranges from goofy B-Movie horror to serious tracks that will churn your guts. Enjoy, ye witches and warlocks!
5 new tracks were added for this Halloween season of 2013!

Eight and a Half Bit Hope is far more than your average Chiptune project. In fact, forget what you know about 8 bit style music – you’re about to experience a whole new level of waveforms.
These are not video game remixes or anything of the sort. It’s a much more personal album scored from scratch by Untested Methods to convey a batch of life experiences he can only explain with song. It’s simply beautiful. It’s his first time earnestly diving full-on into chip music, but it sounds as if he’s been working with it for years. The songs range from chest-thumping Rock to make-you-want-to-sway Pop anthems that are sometimes minimalist and sometimes composed with a surprising amount of deep and complex layers. Honestly, Methods created an amazing album without knowing that he also showed us that he could go toe-to-toe with some of history’s greatest classic game composers. Yeah, it’s that legit.
There are no vocals on this release, so there’s no explanation to what any of the track titles mean… but you will find that the sounds will tug at your emotions all by themselves. Your brain and your heart will translate this album into your own personal set of memories about your loves and the challenges you’ve faced (and eventually conquered).
As a bonus, to add to the greatness that is the audio of this project, there is a visual element as well. Inside the download, you will find an incredible pdf booklet that features a painting or collage for each track. This fantastic artwork, which somehow perfectly sums up each song onto paper, was made by Methods’ daughter Adaline.
