  1. As per Brent and Rob's suggestion I had to listen to the sports ep. Brent's singing was awesome and that Michael Jackson impression killed me. There was some kind of swallowing action that was pure magic. You were definitely in the zone and vibing with the track. Rob's comment about the brother who got run over by a car cracked me up. The NBA Jam track had an almost 80s dance club situation going on. It could have totally been used in Scarface during the club scene. I have this picture in my head of people doing fat rails and dancing to this track. -Greg

  2. Whoah! Shigesato Itoi is the creator of the MOTHER/EarthBound series, and you mention wanting a copy of EarthBound RIGHT before you happen to play a track from another of the same man's games! That's too cool.

    By the way, best track of this episode by FAR was that Coach K track. Never heard it in my life and it rocked my socks off.
