We’ve been at this for a year now and to celebrate we’re gonna treat you all to a rerun of part of our first episode. There’s a new 10 minute intro where we reminisce a bit and then the replay of the our premiere movie draft list. So listen to the intro for some new content and listen to the rerun if you’re feeling generous.
Music Review Episode. We discuss the new album “Light It Up” by Hot Water Music and “Material Control” from Glassjaw. We also chat about other music we’ve been listening to: the new Quicksand album, Headlines, Running in Place Records, Dark Black, Moon Blood, Deer Hunter, The Used, Light Years, Cannibal Corpse, The Faceless, Prawn, and Sean’s band Dullside.
Christmas, Hanukkah, and many other holidays are here so we decided to rank and draft our favorite toys we received as kids. We are joined by Mike’s friend and coworker Matt Hocker for this episode. Most are holiday related but there’s a few random toys that were just so good that we needed to talk about them. Some good video game and Lego talk. We also discuss everybody’s favorite gifts – socks and underwear.
