Ep. 116: Snow Day Spectacular III

Just in time for the Holidays, Josh and Emily get into the spirit and decorate the bar. But what would a bar be without patrons, and this time, they are joined by The Diad and Wicked Sephiroth to help consolidate the cheer with their own track selections and memories. But, you probably have some questions, such as: How did they get here? Where is the Devil's Course? What is up with that spooky Christmas tree? Is this song speeding up?  Find out the answers to all this and more on this very special VGM Jukebox reunion episode!

Answer Key: A combination of necromancy and Christmas magic, somewhere between hell and heaven, see question one, and no it's not.

  1. Great episode! I'm sorry though, because I'm afraid you both have to come back and do the show weekly, biweekly or monthly!!!

  2. Woohoo! It's finally Snow Day! It's so good to have the band back together again! (and now with the possibility of new band names like Bloodlust Nostalgia)

    I haven't finished the episode yet, I just heard you all going on so much about the Detective Pikachu trailer that I had to stop and watch it, then come back here just to say wuuuuuuuuuut?!

  3. On this anniversary of the final posted episode, a lonely time traveler returns from the past to a deserted space.
    He recalls the the first time he was here. When by some cruel coincidence he was informed about the bar that once stood here. Unbeknown to him at the time, a previous trip through time, observing a Legacy in the making, had resulted in his being led here mere days after it had closed for good. Not knowing this at the time, the veteran vagabond departed on yet another trip through the past.
    Thanks to the technology that made this trip possible, the time traveler kept tabs on the present, while compressing the time of the past, experiencing all it had to offer, even if he was merely an observer of things that had already been. All the while musing on how he may decide to interact once his travels have once again caught up to the present.
    But that was not to be, for he was too late. The spirits [both live and undead] had already left this place, only to return once more before departing for good. As the time traveler neared the moment of his original discovery, he began to realize that he was too late, and that even that moment was far removed from the present.
    The lonely time traveler looks back at his time machine, the nostalgia beckoning him to return to visit those times, albeit with changed eyes as he ultimately knows how the tale ends. With a feeling of mono no aware, he decides that the trip was fun while it lasted, but there is plenty of living to be done in the present. The past will always be there to visit again in the future.
