Sonic Fyre Episode 4

Sunday, January 24th, 2010

Someday we really need to find a way to turn one of these podcasts around in less than a month. This podcast was originally recorded in the second week of December 2009. It was then burned to a series of wax records, placed in a steamer trunk and covered in concrete, thrown from the Golden Gate Bridge, buried in Pacific sediment, fossilized, left to sit for a geographic age, excavated by paleontologists, exhibited in the National Museum, and then stolen and placed on the Internet for your amusement. Enjoy.

>> 00:30 Benediction and movies talk. Fantastic Mr Fox. Sherlock Holmes pre-watching jitters. Everyone hates Avatar without ever seeing it.
>> 08:17 Books. Fyre talks about the Cannonball Read. Rob saw Twilight, which was based on a book.
>> 13:14 Recapping events at Ümloud.
>> 20:14 Games of the month. We talk TF2 and the Dante’s Inferno demo. Fyre tries to be Hater of the Week. Analog gaming is briefly mentioned.
>> 43:25 Rob talks about Madden NFL 2010 for ten Goddamned minutes straight. Rob earns the Hater and Lover of the Week titles simultaneously.
>> Music for this episode is “Fakeout” by Derek K. Miller

Remember it’s for the kids.

Say, while you’re here, why not listen to a podcast episode or maybe read some Film Century reviews?

We hope you had fun at Umloud; we sure did!

Sonic Fyre Episode 3

Thursday, October 29th, 2009

Once again, as we do according to a combination of the Mayan doomsday calendar and fell auguries taken during the reign of Tiberius Caesar, my baby sister and I have crept into the dank recording dungeon located 12 stories below the lobby of Fire and Sonic Industries Global HQ, painted the recording booth with each other’s blood, and issued a new podcast. In this tardy, but correspondingly titanic entry, we discuss

>> the demos for Batman: Arkham Asylum and Brutal Legend

>> how we judge the value of the games we shop for

>> movies: Zombieland and A Serious Man

>> Rob rants about the ending of Assassin’s Creed; Fyre counters and stabs him in the top of the skull

>> Music for this episode is “Star Dot Star” by Five Star Fall

Apologies for the quality of the second half of the cast – a change of venue was required, and the audio setup became altered for the worse. Still, with all of this awesome blather, can you truly complain that part of the show sounds like it took place over the telephone?

Can you, mortals?
