We have gone OVERBOARD this week to make up for the fact that we didn’t have any Bonus Tracks for last week’s road episode. This week [dramatic pause/drumroll] … there are FOUR Bonus Tracks, and they’re all, more or less, centered around my use of Tax Refund money on N64 games and accessories. And pizza. … And Kickstarter.com.
1) There’s a lot of N64 game play in the bonus tracks, but the best batch comes out on Saturday. Today’s releases are more ambient game play noises with the microphones conveniently on. In case you’re wondering, but not yet interested enough to check out the Bonus Tracks, we played Beetle Adventure Racing before the show, and Super Smash Brothers. Seriously. Saturday’s Bonus Tracks are awesome. Stay tuned!
2) Kickstarter obsession (with “Buffering …” relevance)! The studio is set to back two projects on Kickstarter: Ze Frank’s new show (if you’re not familiar with Ze Frank, check out his old vlog from 2006 & 2007. I recommend the Scrabble episode!), which has already hit 200% backing, and THIS. I’m not going to tell you what it is. Just click on it. It is AWESOME (*What, like a hot dog?*). The second project needs additional backers (at time of publication), and I don’t see how it isn’t at 1000% backing yet. Help out! Keep an eye out for Ze’s new show, coming (tentatively) in late March.
Until then, I just found my keys that froze to the parking lot after Tuesday’s ice storm, so I need to thaw them out. Make sure to listen to tomorrow’s show on the Episode Archive, iTunes, or Stitcher Radio!
I went a little link crazy this week, but every one of them is worth it. ESPECIALLY THIS ONE!
