LMH Mixtape #94: Pirates

Arr, mateys!  Join the crew of Rob F. [the] Switchbeard and first mate Brentbeard as they set sail on the seas of pirate-themed VGM.  Far from a mixtape of sea shanties, the variety of musical aesthetics here might surprise you.  Who knew the life of video game pirates had so many different moods?

LMH Mixtape #93: Toys

Toizz!  This time Brent and Rob took us through the toy aisle for a sampling of games featuring licensed and unlicensed playthings, as well as tunes from toy-themed titles and levels in general.  Barbie proves she's a force to be reckoned with by capturing a full third of the setlist, and the Treasure Trolls track may inspire you to ad-lib a positive 80’s rap.  There's a lot of wholesome fun to be had here, so queue up this mixtape and get playing!

Episode 213: Sports 5

Another Sports focus!  Rob also gets some things off his chest in a major way.  Brent and Rob attempt to do sports commentary, but they do it in a unique way (one might say a bad way).  Also look out for a NeverEnding Story sing along and a discussion of “soccer” versus “football” in an English accent.  Full track listing below.
