Branded in the 80′s Podcast Episode #9, Stickers and crap…

I forced myself to stop puttering around last night and climbed back behind the mic again for another Branded in the 80s podcast. I so need to get back into the swing of podcasting, but I am one lazy bastard at times. This episodes all about 80′s stickers seeing as that’s whats been on my mind lately. I also recap a buttload of 80′s DVD news including some juicy, all-but-official news on a possible release for The Monster Squad.

For podcast listeners, here’s a rundown of the stuff talked about:

Stickers Magazine

Zero Heroes Sticker Cards

X-Entertainment.com

Bubbledog.com (*Update, quick apology to Bubbledog, I think I came off like an ass in the podcast during my rant.  Btw, everything is right-clickable on the site now.  This is what I get for going off script…)

Panini Stickers

Here’s some Amazon links to the various DVD releases I mentioned:

Episode 6 Horror & Halloween!

Wow, it’s been awhile since my last actual podcast, so here we go.  First off, sorry folks but this is a big one.  I struggle with how to go about gathering my thoughts for these, and I go back and forth between working from a script and ad libbing my way through these.  This one was complete ad lib, so it’s all over the place and it took me awhile to get to the end.  So sorry about that.  The file is roughly 49 megs, so there’s that.

This one is all about horror and Halloween memories per an idea from a piece of listener mail from Anjalee.  She suggested a horror podcast and that’s what I delivered.  I wax nostalgic on horror themed children’s books, halloween record albums, haunted houses, Disney World, horror video covers, and a few movies too (sort of.)  There’s also some cartoon DVD release news (culled from the ever awesome tvondvd.com) and that’s about it.

The one thing I didn’t get to was a story about my scariest Halloween.  My mother had made me a super-man outfit and I went out with my dad trick or treating like normal.  Well, While we were gone, my mother dressed up like a witch, but she went a little wild (she looks a whole heck of a lot like the witches in the above picture considering that was her inspiration) and when we got back to the house she answered the door and scared the living bejebus out of me and five or so other kids.  I didn’t believe it was her and I think I may have even wet my super suit.  But anyway…

So sit back, relax and listen to my dumb voice.

Episode 5 – 7/11′s!

In this episode I wax nostalgic on 7/11 convenience stores, Slurpees, and Nintendo Playchoice 10
arcade systems.

I think I’ve managed to fix the audio problem that’s been bugging me about the podcasts, but we’ll see.
