Episode 227: Youthful Hair

This episode seems to focus a lot on hair.  Brent hasn’t had a haircut since February or March, and because of his longer hair, Rob thinks he looks young, but it’s really because of the lighting, mister.  Gabe’s hair is long too.  Rob and Brent talk a little bit about some past memories, and they also sing the Perfect Strangers theme song at one point as well as Come Undone by Duran Duran.  Enjoy the show, mister!  Full track listing below.

LMH Mixtape #117: 1990

In Episode 117, the boizz were joined by friends and Gamedians Jerry Rocha and Andrew DeWitt for a focus on titles released in the year 1990.  This led directly to the discovery of 1990's greatest musical achievement ("Staff Roll" from Bloody Wolf), which in turn led directly to the greatest musical achievement of 2013 (Andrew DeWitt's ad-libbed lyrics to "Staff Roll").  This episode is legendary.  Relive it in mixtape form and party it up tonight.
