Echo Chamber Podcast Post Game Podcast 18

DOWNLOAD AND DONATE 5 OZONEBUX TO THE ARCANON DROPKICK FUND

This was probably the most funnest episode we did in a while!

-THE AWESOME FANTASY!!!


-THE DISAPPOINTING REALITY!!!


-This was another one where as SOON as we went off, I thought off a dozen more, but those were all video game related, and while we did bring up the Halo Theme at the end, it was mostly songs heard in 30 seconds. And to be honest, it's not that memorable to me, at least because I always skip the intros and stuff. But it is a point to make in the "Video Game Theme" episode: Not a lot of earworms in modern gaming. Halo has a good theme, BUT that will not stick in your head the same way anything from the 8 or 16 bit era would. Not to say the games are "scored" these days are to its disadvantage, far from it. However, a "score" and a "theme" are two different things.

-Back to the topic, a "theme" sets the scene for the TV show. A lot of shows these days don't really do that, instead co-opting another song. "Community" is a fucking amazing show, but it's song has not a lot to do with the show itself. Contrast that with "The Big Bang Theory", while I do not enjoy the show itself, the theme by The Barenaked Ladies sums up the show quite well: Science, more science, and friends that all game together because an invisible skyman of events that followed the Big Bang.

-However, the Pysch theme is one of those awesome little coincidences (It's about a guy posing as a psychic detective to solve crimes)


And let's face, the show is pretty damn awesome.
