Once again, Brent and Rob (and Gabe) countdown their favorite tracks they discovered in roughly the last year (excluding "beyond" tracks).  This episode also marks ten years of doing the podcast!  Aside from the music, Episode 229 has a bunch of kiss blowing (which you can't see), and lots of talking about the drinking of water and related fluids.  Check out the Legacy Music Hour Patreon for an exclusive top ten of the last ten years countdown/discussion video which will be posted sometime this month.  Partial track listing below.

LMH Mixtape #119: Movies 2

For Episode 119, the boizz (and special guest Jonah Ray) put their drums on another line-up of tunes from movie tie-in games. In addition to bringing us some excellent jams, this installment of the Legacy Music Hour was also the origin of the now-infamous Lethal Weapon reference, "I'm gettin' too old for this shhhhhh."  Can you even listen through the tune without hearing that phrase in it anymore?  Yeah.  Didn't think so.

LMH Mixtape #118: Power Pad Games

Get ready to play with power -- body power (seriously, that's what the commercials called it) -- because we've finally sprinted our way up to the Power Pad focus!  The sweet, quirky, and experimental early-NES vibe of these tunes might not come together into the greatest workout mix of all time, but they'll definitely put a smile on your face.  And hey, maybe they'll even inspire you to grab a Power Pad off eBay (about $50 in the States at the time of this writing, FYI) to help keep you in shape while we're all stuck inside.  Stay safe, everybody!
