Happy New Year!

It has taken a while but we have finally got our shit together and got back behind a microphone for a new podcast.

This year we are going to mix things up a little bit, while we used to try and pretend we knew what we were talking about when it came to games – we really didn’t.

For that reason we are opening up the format, now we will talk about whatever you the listeners ask us too. No topic is really out of bounds, if we don’t know much about it we will just start making shit up.

Anyway feel free to enjoy this – the first episode of the Drinky Talky Thingy this year.

Sound Suggestions: Call of Duty Song

Well, after a bit of a siesta (or thirty) I’m back with new tunes to warm your ear holes. Being stuck in a hotel with crappy WiFi for a month is no joke….

ANYway, this little ditty was made for a YouTube commentator, but I choose to use it as a well-rounded example of the Call of Duty (CoD) player base. Basically, everyone and their grandmother has something like this song flow through their head just before beginning a new session.

That is, until some ‘L33T’ person shows up to completely destroy you, your life, and that controller you threw through the monitor…

*Ahem* Enjoy!

Sound Suggestions: Well, What Comes To Mind

This particular track comes with a rather bouncy backbeat and a hypnotic melody. Seriously. You may find yourself wondering where you were last night. This song isn’t even classified by the artist as Trance style! Rather amazing.

Anyway, I hope you enjoy it about 37 times in a row before you muster enough willpower to shut it off. I’m absolutely not speaking from personal experience. Maybe. Probably. Don’t judge me…

Cheers!

Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast #151: The Podcast that Time Forgot

Timely podcasts are not exactly a thing at the moment
Timely podcasts are not exactly a thing at the moment

Well isnt this a novel turn of events, an actual episode of the podcast!

The problem is that this was recorded so long ago that I honestly have no idea what was actually discussed during it, Its hard to even say when it was recorded exactly. We will be back soon but the format may indeed change to fit in a little better with our new much busier work lives.

That does not mean that you shouldn’t get to enjoy this recording.

On another Note I would once again like to thank Trevor for keeping this site alive while we have not been able to do so, without him there would have been nothing at all to see here.

Anyway feel free to enjoy this – the lost episode of the Drinky Talky Thingy Podcast.

Sound Suggestions: Sound of San Francisco Remix

I’m a sucker for anything involving one of my favorite songs, The Sound of San Francisco. Naturally, upon seeing the title I went for it and enjoyed the techno reverb that keeps the tune bouncy throughout. Along with a generous portioning of bass as well. That was in the original, but we’ll give Airprogressive their fair due ^_^.

I still believe that the ‘original’ original by Scott McKenzie is best. His voice pushes it over the top for me, but I do enjoy the numerous remixes that continue to pop up.

I wonder if there is a similar song in the UK that kicks up this level of nostalgia and/or country identity. I’m sure there is. Shoot it at me and I’ll give it a listen as well.

Cheers!

Sound Suggestions: Still Blastin’

Bring in the Mega Man!

I remember Mega Man being one of my most aggravating series of games… that being said, it still holds a certain special place as being the only game that made me take out my Gameboy with my forehead. Literally. Poor thing never stood a chance…

I think this would be appropriate for a good bit of hearing loss on high volume during a final level that you’ve been striving to obtain for DAYS ON END.

….Sorry. Did ancient history bleed through? Probably…

Cheers!!

Sound Suggestions: Let’s Work

While searching for honest… hillbillies… in… um… alrighty, let’s be perfectly clear here; I have no idea how I came across this particular piece. That being said, I think this site is in desperate need of a little redneckedness!

This song is best listened to in a loop. Perhaps while playing a ramped up version of Duck Hunt. It keeps a quick beat and blends well with many country style songs, as well as being interesting unto itself!

Have a brew and practice that southern accent, ya’ll!
