Ep. 43: Pipe Dreams

This week Emily starts out with some negative status effects, but Josh and the patrons mix up the cure in the form of disgusting healing items and fantastic jams, respectively. Listen in while they explore pipe dreams of Cadillacs riding dinosaurs, VGM composers commandeering pop concerts, and a world where Shy Boo and Cookie get along. Josh also opens a mystery package on this episode, which among other things includes a very, very important inventory item. Who ever said necromancers weren’t considerate?

  1. Wow, Retro Nick and I are on the save wavelength. I also submitted a track from Ottifanten: Kommmando Stortebeker recently. This is a phenomenal soundtrack. I think you guys might be visited by the Carrot Man soon though, because the composer is Stello Doussis, not Alberto Jose Gonzalez. Stello Doussis also composed the music for Das Geheimnis der Happy Hippo-Insel, which you guys were talking about. There is a different Ottifanten game that Alberto did the soundtrack for though, called Otto's Ottifanten: Baby Bruno's Nightmare. That also has a great soundtrack.

  2. I think Alberto José González composes in somewhat of a Japanese style, but with a European soundscape.

  3. Does anyone know where I can get a copy of the Starflight OST in .vgm, .vgz, or .sms format? I've looked through Zophar's, Project2612, SMS Power, and vgmrips. No luck at any of my usual haunts. It's such a great song though! Do want!

  4. I think the patrons will enjoy this hilarious review of *NSYNC Get to the Show.


    I would love to hear Josh and Emily's thoughts after they play it.

  5. Playing catch up here, gang! Re: Cadillacs & Dinosaurs, it was originally a comic called Xenozoic Tales and definitely had a burst of cross-media exposure (imagine a small scale TMNT phenomenon). Anyway, you're right in recalling the quirky 90s era in comics: the Tick, Usagi Yojimbo, Bucky O'Hare, Spawn, the Maxx, the Crow, Sam & Max -- it's virtually endless.

    1. Ah, Fiffe! Thank you for being our comics correspondent. Sorry if our comparative ignorance of the field was making you cringe, though!
