Shall We Play A Movie? Um, Yes. PRESS START! Eighties nostalgia & vibrant, geek-infused mash-ups. That sounds like the makings of an episode, doesn't it?
So, some set-up: Video Games. Their influence in popular culture has exploded over the past thirty years. What was once mocked & belittled by the artistic elite has blossomed into a multi-billion dollar industry. An industry that, if trends continue, will soon eclipse both the music AND film world. Monetarily & artistically.
We know the 1st 2 are a tad dated, but they were chosen for very specific reasons. Our third was selected for its genius in blending all that came before it.
There is also a ton of video game music. Check out Danimal Cannon, for one! He even makes tracks with Game Boys!
So prep your game hands, grab some Shasta & settle into the couch or banana chair,
PS - as we write this, we have paid to own our third film & Macgruber (as discussed 2 weeks ago). Our money & our mouths are aligned. The SPvsW blu-ray has hours of great features, bloopers, deleted, commentaries. just go buy it after we tell you/remind you how stupendous it is.
End of Line. We Die. Scott has Learned the Power of Listening.
