Episode 139 – A Warm Heat

Episode 139 – A Warm Heat

WEEK IN GEEK: Andrew watches through the first season of the hit Starz show, Ash vs. Evil Dead while Dan plays through the 2014 Bethesda game, Wolfenstein: The New Order, the reboot of the classic first-person shooter Id franchise.

KEEPING SCORES: It was announced this week that Danny Elfman has been hired to compose music for the upcoming DCEU movie, Justice League, after the original composer, Tom Holkenborg (aka Junkie XL), amicably left the project. Dan and Andrew discuss the expectations for an Elfman score in a modern superhero cinema context, and discuss their thoughts on film and televisions scores in general.

Episode 134 – Greek It Up

Episode 134 – Greek It Up

WEEK IN GEEK: Andrew learns about the seedy underbelly of LEGO knock-offs while Dan preps for the upcoming Wonder Woman movie by watching the 2009 animated film.

DOCTOR WHO KNEW?: Dan and Andrew discuss their skeptical praise for the current series of Doctor Who. Five episodes in and all episodes have been undeniably good so far. Should they be waiting with baited breath for the show to stumble as it has done for the last five series? Or should they let their freak flag fly once again?

WAKING LIFE: Remedy Entertainment’s 2010 sleeper hit, Alan Wake, was summarily pulled from all digital storefronts last weekend due to the lapsing of the licenses paid for music featured in the game. It’s a strange situation considering exactly how many games––even those released before Alan Wake––use licensed music and are still available for purchase.

Goodbye, 2016, Goodbye

Goodbye, 2016, Goodbye

A special interruption to help properly end 2016 and bring in the new year. Please enjoy.

Click here to download the song, “Goodbye 2016,” by itself.

Happy New Year!

That has been a song for all intents and purposes.


LYRICS (I guess?):

Goodbye, 2016, Goodbye,
Your day is done, it’s time to fly
And revel in your win

You made us all give in
With your special brand of torturin’
The scars will always show

Why did you have to hurt me so?
Not just me, but everybody else I know?
Take a hint, read the signs,
Close the door, shut the blinds,
Turn away and let everybody say

Let everybody say

Goodbye, 2016, goodbye
The worst year I’ve ever seen
I’m kind of scared of 2017.


-“Goodbye 2016 Goodbye” by D. Bethel (with Andrew Asplund)

Episode 84 – Your Cursor is My Prisoner

Episode 84 – Your Cursor is My Prisoner

Week in Geek: Andrew plays to complete the Assassin’s Creed Chronicles trilogy with its final Russian installment while Dan plays Campo Santo’s new release, Firewatch.

Same Song, Different Tune: Dan and Andrew discuss how the cultural meaning of music can change drastically when used in different contexts. How many people think about demon-slaying when they hear “Carry On Wayward Son” by Kansas? How many people think of stylized violence when they hear Dick Dale’s “Miserlou”? (How many people think about A Podcast [ , ] For All Intents and Purposes when they hear “Stayin’ In Black” by Wax Audio––or either ACDC’s “Back in Black” or the BeeGee’s “Stayin’ Alive”, for that matter?)

Cheap Games, Part 2 – The Returns: Andrew and Dan return tangentially to the discussion of cheap ass games with an investigation of how many players think of a game’s value in terms of length of play.

Cthulhu Clock Lyrics

(written and recorded by D. Bethel)

On the road to Rhode Island to put my mind at ease,

A secluded cabin hideaway beneath the ocean’s breeze.

It’s just a place to settle down and rest my weary head,

and I would but for a strange cuckoo clock that was mounted above my bed.

Cthulhu clock, Cthulhu clock

It penetrates my mind.

Cthulhu clock, Cthulhu clock

I hear its ceaseless chime.

Its wretched screams are endless as they

ring out through my dreams.

And until I’m driven mad…it’s not as bad as it seems.

At first, my mind was singing in the perfect solitude.

Finally, alone with all my thoughts in a bright and hopeful mood.

But as weeks wore on a creeping dread fell on me with the night

Because every hour that clock would sound filled with antediluvian fright.

Though my master remains sleeping, one day he will arise,

and amid a tenebrous cavalcade I’ll gladly proselytize.

What are these thoughts surrounding me? I cannot look away.

With every toll another part of me begins to painfully fade away.

Cthulhu clock, Cthulhu clock,

I’m clawing at my eyes.

Cthulhu clock, Cthulhu clock,

All life I now despise.

My nerve-ends are exploding because

I cannot understand:

Am I just a speck of dust in your giant, god-like hand?
