Hey everyone, “Mr. Sensational” Gino Vega here, back with Episode 7 of the “Mr. Sensational” Gino Vega Podcast on the I See Robots Radio Network!
This episode I kick things off by talking about getting sick for the first time in awhile and sharing a story about some teenagers who recently menaced us here at Sensational Manor.
Then it’s on to some TALES FROM BENNETT VALLEY. Bennett Valley was the first neighborhood I lived in here in Santa Rosa, CA. Looking back at my time there yields memories of hanging out at random fools’ houses and apartments, roaming the hood in search of 7-11, and discovering Garbage Pail Kids, M.U.S.C.L.E.s, comic books and…ADULT MAGAZINES.
Unlike that TV show Seinfeld, the MSGV Podcast really IS a show about nothing!

There are three things worse than being killed by Bigfoot: being impregnated by Bigfoot, being forced to watch BIGFOOT WARS, and listening to this podcast.

Hey kids! Thanks for stopping by. We have a super fun show ahead of us this week. We start off with some talk rap tapes and my recent interest in copping some, also sweaters. There is some sweater talk. It’s fun.
From there we hit up At The Movies where this week we tackle 2 movies, Baywatch and Wonder Woman.
Then on to the main event where we have a super indepth, super fun look at a toyline from the 80’s Remco’s Sgt Rock! I start with a personal tale of shame and go from there. It’s really fun and I’m sure you will dig it.

In this episode Greg and George look at the little known sequel to the popular game Operation Wolf, Operation Thunderbolt! The second game from the Wolf Triliogy (the last one never got a home release), this game plays much like Operation Wolf only the game moves up and down as opposed to side to side. The SNES version came out a full six years after the arcade game and we discuss the major differences the SNES version has, how the game is and if it’s fun to play today. Any questions, comments, suggestions, etc. can be left on our FB page or e-mail sent to the firstname.lastname@example.org and as always thanks for your support!
Where do our music tastes originate from? Today on GeekFest Rants we begin to find out as Carlos unearths his old record albums to find out what makes these 70s/80s LPs special to him. From Huey Lewis, to Vangelis, to Kurtis Blow, to Pink Floyd, what do all these have in common? Absolutely nothing other than they are on our playlist and we grew up on them.
Then we make a left turn into the Planet of the Apes comic book movie adaptation. Could this be the best comic book movie adaptation we’ve read so far? Mmmmmmaybe. And finally, we go back in time and then forward, to look at our family’s resurgence interest in Dungeons and Dragons. From our old high school days to our current family game night, we dust off our multi sided dice and begin some new adventures.
Host’s Topic: Random Access Memories
RAM limitations. Early on in home/personal computing, we were faced with very real RAM constraints. Not like today’s RAM measured in GBs and added in freely, only really affecting disk reliance. What do you remember about bumping into RAM limits, planning programs around them, finding failures, expanding, etc.
