[reposted from the google positive] ***"Dunwich Horror" SPOILERS--don't read this paragraph is you haven't read the story and want to*** You guys make a good point with "The Dunwich Horror": it's probably the most typical horror plot found in Lovecraft...it even has a girl in it. Women don't appear very often in Lovecraft stories, and the subject of sex even less so. "Dreams in the Witch House" and "The Thing on the Doorstep" both feature evil witches; but the plot line of "The Dunwich Horror" has an evil cultist performing some ritual that impregnates his daughter with ultimate cosmic evil. Talk about a face full of alien wing wong?! http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/FaceFullOfAlienWingWong **SPOILER alert back to green** Thanks for mentioning the Mini Game Jam and Inform7; I kind of knew what would happen when I "suggested" Andrew download it: he would get totally sucked into a time vortex. I know how fascinated Andrew is with narrative and world building, and Inform7 allows you to build an interactive environment VERY fast. Andrew, you should really think about making your games playable on-line; it's free to set up a github account, and they have this feature that allows you to post web content. You can move your published product from Inform7 to a github repo and BAM...anyone can play your game in a browser from any internet connection. If you want to know more just let me know. I'm posting links to Inform7 and the Mini Game Jam websites, so that other listeners can read more about it, if they want. Learning more about what's happening in Berlin might inspire people elsewhere to do the same thing...and then, maybe the Berlin Mini Game Jam people could become a global institution...and then we can all become mad with power! http://www.berlinminijam.de/ http://inform7.com/ And, if anyone in Radioland is interesting in reading my oft tl;dr articles on my blog, then this link is what the doctor ordered: http://www.digitalhecatomb.net/ Answering the question: I'm not nearly as into pop music as you guys clearly are; not to say that I didn't listen with interest to your discussion. I had no idea who the composer for Nintendo was, but I agree that his work is amazing. I'm not sure if you guys know about this band, but The Advantage does four piece rock 'n roll covers of 8-bit NES games...and it's awesome sauce. They are all over the youtubes. But, to get to the subject of TV show soundtracks, there's always the "Dinosaucers" intro for just over the top and silly hair metal nonsense: Dinosaucers Intro/Theme Song - True Remaster (480p HQ) Being a child of the 80's, I remembered watching this other show, "Kidd Video"; it's hardly a work of art, but it has that bubbly synth sound and it's completely, infectiously, upbeat: Kidd Video : Intro [HD] - Season 1 When I'm feeling down, I often give it a listen. Catch you on the flipside, W.
