The Mr. Sensational Gino Vega Podcast Ep.7: Tales From Bennet Valley, Teens On My Lawn and Tons More!

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!

The SNES Podcast #74 — Operation Thunderbolt

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 snespodcast@yahoo.com and as always thanks for your support!

Geekfest Rants Episode 308 – Special LPs – Apes Comic – D&D

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.

RCR Episode 153 – Random Access Memories

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.

Panelists: Paul Hagstrom (hosting), Michael Mulhern, Kevin Savetz, and Carrington Vanston
