We talk about all of the things this week! Our “Previously On…” segment is a clip from the original THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS. We begin with some follow-up on the NHL Playoffs and why Joe says the comparison between Sidney Crosby and Alexander Ovechkin should be put to rest. Ovechkin then gets compared to Carmelo Anthony and the guys talk about how important a championship is to a Hall of Fame resume. They talk about the semi-recent fad of star players bouncing around on teams near the end of their careers to chase a ring. Dan Marino versus Drew Brees: who you got?

Happy Monday! To welcome you back to the work week, we bestow upon you the latest episode in our never-ending saga to ingest entertainment, our 45th edition, it’s us discussing one of our favorite series, The Fast & The Furious, but specifically, the latest installment, THE FATE OF THE FURIOUS! How did it stack up on our Main Man Standings? How terrific is the Rock and Jason Statham? How great is “Danza Kuduro” from Fast 5? Another fun time spent with your favorite podcast hosts! Enjoy!
This week’s episode was action-packed! We start off talking about the new season of THE WALKING DEAD and the new Lady Gaga album, “Joanne” in addition to our memories of the Columbia House CD club.
Then the six weeks of horror continue with TUCKER & DALE VS. EVIL and a Halloween episode of “Castle”!
This week’s main event has the boys tackle every Simpsons’ Treehouse of Horror special ever including an attempted rating before concluding with the Big Finish and our first ever on-air fight!
Holy smokes! We’re up to 13 episodes already! Both of us really enjoyed this week’s show and we’re pretty sure you will too. We start by wrapping up the summer movie season, but then dive deep into some iconic songs that transcend the movie they were featured in. A lot of good, fun discussion and some personal touches. Enjoy!
On this week’s episode, I talked about how much I loved the soundtrack of Mega Man 2. It’s awesome. Specifically, I mentioned how much I love the music to the “Dr. Wily: Stage 1” level. A lot of you have inquired to some of the tracks I was talking about, so what better than to put a collection of them in one place for your listening entertainment?!
First things first. Here’s the actual in-game version of the song:
Now, to follow, my favorite cover that I’ve found thus far performed by a gentleman named Songe who is a French musician and producer:
The much asked-about Mariachi cover:
Here’s an a capella cover that’s more interesting than good:
The metal version we not only need, but deserve:
A very Japanese riff-heavy version:
Finally, another one-man band version. Not as good as the other one earlier, but still fun:
So that’s a little collection of some covers of what is definitely my favorite video game song of all-time and may very well be the greatest. Hope you enjoy as much as I do.
