Episode 108: TV Shows

TV Shows is the topic of Episode 108.  More specifically, television shows that are not cartoons, since LMH already did a cartoon focus not too long ago.  Now, while this episode focuses on music from video games based on TV shows, Brent and Rob focus their banter almost entirely on Full House, even though there is no Full House video game.  And it wasn't even something they planned, it just happened like that.  Full House.  They also talk about celebrities and lots of other things.  NOTE: Rob plays a track from the Airwolf video game for NES, without realizing that it's the actual theme song from the TV show.  Brent doesn't realize it either, even though it's so obvious and they both should have recognized it immediately.  Anyway, non-video game music adaptations are not allowed on the show, but it was too late, the episode was already recorded.  So save the emails and comments!  They get it.  Full (House) track listing below.

Episode 106: Side-Scrolling and Platforming 2

The Chiki Chiki Boi-zzz take another look at the side-scroller/platformer category (their first one was for Episode 39), but really these games are so broad, it's almost like another free play.  Rob plays some really long tracks and Brent talks about a really obscure video he saw in the 1980's.  Also, Brent gives Rob (and the listeners) a fun, little geography quiz.  NOTE: Quiz originally given to Brent by Zach Sherwin AKA MC Mr. Napkins, who may very well have created it himself.  Full track listing below.
