We’ve been tasked with rescuing our tiny Kiwi friends from an evil walrus!
No, we’ve not been hallucinating – we’ve been playing The New Zealand Story from those crazy dudes at Taito. Flying about on balloons and magical geese while lobbing bombs at mean teddy bears and er, spiky things. Lots of spiky things. Too many spiky things perhaps.
More world records for our friends Charlie Far (David) and Pete Hahn (former GG gamer of the year)

To commemorate the extraordinary life and career of comedian Don Rickles, who died today at age 90, I’m posting this TUBE TUNES TURBO TUNE episode about the TV series for which he’ll probably be best remembered: CPO SHARKEY, which ran on NBC from 1976 to 1978. The theme music for CPO SHARKEY was composed by Peter Matz, a veteran of THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW. I hope you enjoy this brief look at (and listen to) the theme music of a very funny show with a very funny man.

We discuss three games — Monopoly, Clue, and Super Battleship. Some history of the games is gone over, followed by how the games were ported to the SNES and how they play, and if they are worthwhile.

Hey everybody, it is I, “Mr. Sensational” Gino Vega, back with Episode 5 of the “Mr. Sensational” Gino Vega Podcast on the I See Robots Radio Network.
This episode I talk about an All Pro Wrestling show I attended back in February, then it’s on to part 3 of my history as a fan of popular music.
We’ll discuss my descent into thrash metal, memories of the “rockers vs. rappers” war at my junior high school, and my discovery of the band Faith No More, which acted as a bridge from metal to punk music.
Thanks for listening, and be sure to visit iseerobots.com for the rest of the great podcast lineup the I See Robots Radio Network has to offer!
