This sounds anything this L. anything like a tragedy. This thing's Macula is really good. So my guess is that goes right into also in the arcade on its own hardware so like you imagine how an arcade game with sound in the ninety S. This sounds way cleaners. I think that they like arranged it on the original regional synthesizers and then recorded it CD quality for the game on the playstation because it sounds really clean. I gotTa admit to this to rob real quick. What the Heck is personal? I keep looking at my cellphone. Yeah what's what's happening. You're you're poking monning it up. Aren't you right now.

Yeah I want to hear. There's rumor that they're GONNA do next smash character isn't I'm genuinely rumors had been swirling on nights you you just take a picture of yourself. FRIGGIN WISH I. I would love to be a smash brothers characters so much. I wanted to be a fighting game character. Just because I want the the absurdity of a move sick and and how cool would that be to have a moose. Maybe that'll be the next game that I work on as I just like all the pictures that I have of you already for the podcast photos that I do and I just digitize you and so like a mortal combat style game but then we had the most being otherwise it will make sense. Yeah I'll be there. I'll be in the background like going like the League. He can throw throw wall turkeys onto the screen. Your back like killing a chicken. I can the back the back of Charlie stage anyway so I I chose the project tasted. I'd never really played a lot of writing although I like. Oh I love the style of the whole lot. It's very classic Classic Space Space. Shoot em up type game but this track reminds me so much of the modern a sense of movement movement happening right now with bands like a gunship and time cop nineteen eighty three which I am quite. That is the name of the band year. That's the name of the band it's one guy with. I think some other guest artist artist. That's called time cop. Nineteen eighty-three Mega. Music is awesome. What are we calling time? Cotton one thousand nine hundred. Three's at the year you decided you know. It's so good just the year I want. Let me known but when he first when you hear this opening chords on this track like it's so big it's so smooth and that the first lines of that keyboard aboard hits it it feels good to me. It feels really good then. This really cheesy sounding drum fills a tedious. Jesus that is a mess. Let me made me feel like back in the nineties. Radically skating down that cool hat. Fight looking for the next big curl making up words. That don't make sense of those things like I don't know about you but like the playstation was just hooked up to a TV and just those TV speakers. We weren't getting this this this level of like hearing the full surround like hearing the full stereo during the full spectrum of the Bass and the treble like we're just hearing what was coming up. TV speakers back then. I had a twenty five inch magma's which I bought with my very last. Kb Toys paycheck And there was blessed before that I had strep rabbit ears window take that KB toys.

You have a TV upstairs in your room. snout right still still not that one. But I'm about to ditch that and replaceable. Another to give me a Sony wager which is only on top of the line.

GameStop's Store Redesign Leaked
"Stops new store layout got leaked and I'm not sure that this is new friendlier spaces enough to save the stores while I think the tables and TV's to play Games is a great touch. Many people go to stores to play games already have spaces like that like Comic Board Games Comics and re card in retrograde stores plus many people from what I've seen in my own game. Stop are there with a family to grab something quick or to shop at their young kids four something cute for a toy. Do you think this new welcoming game space will be enough to attract customers all new to stick around play games and treat it like a hangout spot. Instead of just a store has the game brandman too ingrained with people to remain just a storefront the only way I can think to help this experience is is if they also partner with a Retro Game Store for Game Nights have game nights again or allow people to actually try out games before they buy instead of those outdated demo kiosks. I I think what also they need to do. Is If you're listening is space probably our target areas of the country would that don't have those types of tips places and you're going to have to have a staff that has a passion for it to constantly creating content. I'm from Austin where Alamo Draft House you know that's that's their home home and it took years and years of them just having a passion for what they do to create all of these events and contents and Friday nights David Bowie night or whatever and they need to do the same thing thing there or it's just going to turn into like a whiteboard where they write in what's happening in. That's where I struggle with is that Allan was a great example of somebody who started small found a thing that worked and then was able to identify where to go with those locations to make that actually happen and where like a weird Wednesday showing territories day is going to make sense right game. Stop up in granted. They're not doing the same thing in every store game. Stop trying out. I worry about that well yeah like if I was starting a game store tomorrow I would it might look similar to this with him. I thought it was. They had the snacks in there like they. They're encouraging you to hang out and play games in the back. That's so easy when you are a independent retailer like a common workshop and you're able to say man. You know what everybody's loving borderlands. We're gonNA bring in some. TV's in the back and playboy unless or smash were doing just smashed. The bar on the street does like that's easy when you have to go through corporate like I'm not even like and I'm not taking a shot at game. Stop just in general having a corporate structure that she has to get approved in so does a smash night in Oklahoma play the same as smash night down at the San Francisco Stones and since it's game stop they probably have to get the lawyers involved right and and that's where it gets really sticky of like. This is a cool idea when I was pitching earlier in the year when we were talking about all this stuff. This is what I was saying like. You need to go back to that. Comic Book Shop Shop Vibe. It's a place to hang out I to nanna biologists asking if this would actually work. I think if they were to do it at the mall down the street it would work. There's a high school right next door. There's there's kids walking through the food court all the time even with the like. I think something that was missing that I when I was growing up your parents would park somewhere all right cool go to kb toys and I'm GonNa. Go do all all this other stuff great awesome. Thanks see you guys later for this to be like all right go to game. Stop in hang on the back and play and sixty four or whatever this generation's arcade yeah exactly canopy right because even as I talk although it would do well down there. The game stop and stones town is tiny. It's the size of this room like. You're not going to be able to do exactly the same thing that they just didn't Oklahoma. They're inside the nightmare of what game savage trying to do from a logistic side of figuring out what stores work for which way what you know. Ooh Do we have to. We're trying to save money. We've closed these stores. Can we move so that they get a bigger spot. It's to who the hell no and that could be what it's doing because I've worked for this comic book store and it's had two three at least four locations because it would hey. Let's invite people in Oh my gosh. We need a bigger space. I mean locations twice while I worked there kind of thing so they need a big footprint to host that yeah I mean I wish him the best. Obviously I think that having even though I'm a digital guy like I like having brick and mortar I'd do like I do like the idea the of having a place where people can go and hang out like the idea that you know I for me. I remember it being such a sense of identity of being able to walk into and be like I'm with people I could talk to the person in here about you know W W W and they understand what I'm talking about. I don't want people to lose

"So KB toys. They would have like the discount bin. That was where I found is awesome. Goliath figure recap, press button on his back as wings wings popped out. It was awesome. Favorite KB toy memory was going past KB toys store in watching Reggie Miller score like one hundred points and he's the Nixon ninety seconds awhile haven't yet, and it was on the TV and I was talking to us. It was like a window that was facing out. Okay. And I was like, what is happening? And he s- Carlos points to me and my friend was watching like, wow, that just happened in real life. I like that your favorite KB toys memory has nothing to do with another. Inside my way. More toys r. us memories. I have none. I have not a single toys r. us memory been in one, I think. So what do you mean think so, you know if you would just that was not something we've gotta get you gotta get you to one that might be challenging my friend now we're gonna go to one who would just be a warehouse. That's fine. We'll get you inside way. Does this team's plot to murder me that what has been happening this whole timeline? He comes into my studio and I'm not here. Come here come down. Miller's crossing. I love that part of Miller's crossing. So that should be interesting. I'm down for it. The other thing that I'm really excited about a lot of people seem to be Pooh poohing who's Pooh poohing this a lot of people. What? So they're making a movie musical. Another movie musical of the musical cats. I have talked about it before. Jennifer. Hudson is already part of the cast Taylor swift, which what else being in the whole thing, Jim resin, gonna, yell, sing the whole time? Well, it depends on who she is. I doubt you'd be Grizz Abella the glamour cat. But she could. She could be a few different characters, but with the cats casting news eaters Elba has joined the cast. I have no idea who is going to be. He could be Rummy Tom tug her on Mr. Moustapha lease who's kind of the MC of the whole thing. Most likely it'll be rumour Tom tug. I'm putting that has climbed Mr. Mustafa lease. Boom. There you go. That only makes sense if it is a black had. I don't even know that. Tuxedo cat because that'd be perfect. My friends, gas name eaters Elba has joined the cast. As far as I know. I do not know roles where he has been singing. I know he has done stage work, but he does music. Jay for like, so I don't know. Do you have to same thing for this? Yeah. Well, appeals, Tom. To sing sing for this is the real is the question. The answer is. And I'd rather have a rat. You'd have the same things, but it's not. It's not a play. True lame is yes to you. Don't have the same intolerably. The same thing like I've talked about before, I can break down most musicals and kind of pull out pieces like, oh, you should watch this because of XYZ. Even though les Miz is still in my top through least favourite musicals the movie rendition of it is phenomenal. I gotta hand it to them with cats. It is people walking around singing dancing and make up as cats. I got nothing. I love it, but I cannot defend it. But I'm excited for this movie. I'm Lucy, I have no idea how they're gonna do the movie. I mean, they've most likely will do it again. This is total speculation like allay MS like a phantom rent Chicago. The only movie version of cats they have done was when they filmed version for TV. I remember that, yeah, on stage which they did with rent the last time they performed a rent on Broadway. They filmed it really good. Thank you very much like.

"I can remember being at KB toys begging, my parents to buy me RBI baseball for forty dollars. And that was back in the day that was in the nineties. So that was a big deal back was like forty. Forty bucks a lot of money. That is a lot of money back in the day. Right. Yeah. They told me if I just shut up for two hours that they would give it to me. And so that's the only time in my life. I've ever shut up for two hours. So ninety ninety nine dollars for a it was a gift. I mean, I will I took it in. I haven't talked to him since I've been playing since you're such you're such a good boy. Chicks on the right? The Nike three WIBC up. Also, we talked a lot on this show about things that you can no longer say things that have become offensive just out of the blue. La. That's just us saying. Okay. And by the way, I'm not saying people can't say I'm just saying I just get the she just doesn't like she's she's gonna she's gonna judge. I'm just going to judge you. But I mean, it's fine. But now, the political correctness police are deciding that there is a common phrase. In fact, I use it probably I dunno fifty thousand times a day. That you can no longer say. And it's the greeting. Hey, guys, or hey, you guys you guys. That is you can't say that anymore. If in fact, there is a woman present, you can't say, wow. Yeah. This is from the Atlantic which used to be sort of a respectable publication. Not any more not so much anymore. And why why is this? Because it's exclusive in excludes women from the conversation, even if you're a woman using the phrase, what if you're a woman like us, and we just don't care. Well. On the air and say how done this. Oh, okay. Because we don't care, and we think this is dumb. But this is the thing. This is now something that feminists are worrying about because it's it's they're they're wanting to use this more gender neutral language. So as not to hurt hurt the feelings of anybody. That's the group that you're addressing do. They have to sanitize everything. Why do they have to do this week? Yeah. Over and over and over again women are just making every every one of us just look weaker by doing all this crap. Can they just shut up? You know what? I mean. I just I just wish women were just shut up. They won't they won't shut up. But because this is a thing. And also don't forget the transgender angle. Right. That's a whole other problem. No. I wanna forget it. Forget it entirely. What do I have to remember? I mean, you have to remember that. For example, there is this dude Brad who was a college counselor at a high school and Brad says as a transgender woman I consciously began trying to stop using guys some years ago, he consciously did that well, she's she consciously did right? And she added Brad when I'm included with a group that has called guys there's some pain since it takes me back to my mail days in a way that I rather not go. This is a college counselor at a high snow to say, I say y'all because I'm from the south. So automatically go to y'all is. That's what I do. Because you know, that's just how I was. You could also say, hey, PPO. Hey. What do you want to address? Back. It'd be. Oh, that's interesting. Thing. It's a chick schism if you will sort of how in fact, talking to their PC police, actually championed the use of y'all they recommend it as a way to get used to be a giant redneck right now. Champion. Go figure, and who would have thought you would have been championed by the police for saying something that's the right thing to stop being a giant redneck? Look at me go there's also recommendations that you can say things like, hey, hey, folks, you gotta be kidding me. I'm going to say you guys until I go to the grave. Yeah. I'm not stopping you.

"Would go out every year at christmas time and buy toys and stash them away and and the idea was to hold for thirty years and then resell them i never made it we gave up after about twenty two twenty three years of that and but you know back then it was was fun to go out to buy toys because you had not only toys r us but you had a kb toys and lionel kiddie city and a bunch of other other kinds of toys out there and now with the demise of of toys r us the toy store the independent standalone toy store is really in deep is almost a thing of the past now if you read the articles about the miser toys r us of course what happens is that that walmart and kmart and target and the others actually sold more toys than did toys us and it it's sad to see that because what happens with those stores is that a lot of the toy companies do what they call exclusive story toys that are only available at one of those stores and i realize it's it's a virtue dicing thing and so forth the other thing too is that of course more and more people are going up on the internet and buying stuff and my wife is one of those one of those people too and she relies heavily on the internet to do that but it but it in reading the stories about the demise of toys r us it was interesting to note that very few people blamed amazon and the internet for the demise most of the people blamed the big box stores and their impact on the toy market but even even more so it was the bad debt that toys r us had that they got their souls at a debt hold it couldn't work themselves out of and they were spending so much time on that also as their demise approach that they got a lot of bad media press at apparently there's pliers stop sending them stuff and so toys r us didn't have the right stuff when the shelves now it's going to disappoint my one grandchild whose first comments on seeing my wife and myself usually when are we going to toys r us he doesn't get there as much as you would like what nevertheless it's it's gonna be an interesting thing it also.
