Ep. 86: How the Sugar Crystals Fall


Haju's been lingering around since last episode. Is it because she is taking up Josh's offer of friendship, or does she have more nefarious schemes in mind? Join Josh and Emily as they probe the inner machinations of the Haunted Jukebox once again in this all-random episode, where we discuss things like how to make a puppy fall asleep, the absolute best name for a track, and just exactly what it means to split this show in half. If you don't like it, you can have your tokens back, but you'll have to call the company who owns the machine. Then, stay tuned for a special Patron-submitted VGM Karaoke. You got it right here at the VGM JUKEBOX!

Ep. 85: The Impact of the Piece


With a lot of modern tunes packing this week's setlist, Josh and Emily turn their thoughts to musical composition and earfeel. Where exactly is the line between a tune that's "video-gamey" and one that is not? Is it in the structure, the tonality, or is it always something in between? Ponder this -- and also reminisce a lot about snow -- at our poorly-lit campsite while we search for the melodies that truly capture the pivotal moments of our lives.
