Need something entertaining to listen to during the start of the apocalypse this weekend? We will be recording our semi-bi-monthly podcast this Saturday at around 9:00PM EST, and of course we’ll be doing it live which you’ll be able to watch right here on Shamoozal.com.
What to expect from Saturday night’s main event? Well it’s the fifth year anniversary of Shamoozal Radio, can you believe that? Somehow for some reason we keep this train rolling, and we’ve been doing it for five years. I don’t know if that’s an accomplishment or not, but either way, we’ll find a reason to celebrate it this weekend. On top of that we’ll be doing our big annual Summer movie preview/blowout. To help us along since most of us regular podcasting crew members won’t get to see much this summer, we’ll have JohnnyManf of Moviewiseguys along to show us what we should be watching.
The fifth anniversary, the summer movie line up, the apocalypse, it’s a chemical combustion that could never ever be recreated. In fact, this episode might be so explosive that it’ll shake the very foundations of the earth hence starting the end of the world as we know it. The crew may not make it to the Promised Land, but the hell if we won’t be riding a bolt of lightening across the stratosphere while it’s going down.
Okay, it won’t be that exciting, but stay tuned anyway, okay?
You’ll have to excuse me, I’m on some sort of Lost kick. I had a dream about Season 7 a few nights ago which was sadly not real (it’s okay, it was shaping up to be a nonsense season in that dream anyway) and today I grabbed The Final Season OST, which is fantastic I might add. Also, if Lost were still on, we’d totally be into a new season. God it’s painful. Anyway, that lead me to the above image.
Back to business, we’re recording a new Shamoozal Radio Podcast tomorrow evening. We’re going to attempt to go live a little earlier than normal, so expect to see us go live around 7ish (est). We’ll have all streaming details and what not up on here once we get everything ready to go. It’s been a while since the gang was in the studio together, in fact, well over two months! I guess SRP has unofficially gone back to bimonthly status. No wonder our listening audience is well… hmmm… well I guess the numbers haven’t changed that much, for better or worse.
So yes, we’ll be together, talking about things. I look forward to seeing you peeps there. Thanks!
This month the legendary Nintendo Entertainment System turns 25 years old (along with Back to the Future!). Hard to believe I was only three years old when the NES secretly went to retail in New York and slowly became the console that changed the industry. My family didn’t get one until probably 1988 which is when the NES really came into it’s own. I can remember it being an accomplishment actually completing stage 1-1 of Super Mario Brothers. I also remember thinking the game would be over once we finished off Bowser at the end of 1-4, how wrong could I have been? I can even remember just staring at a copy of Zelda that my brother borrowed from a friend which I called “the gold game.” Those were fun days, the days before internet trolls, and snarky game journalists.
Anyway, I’m not here to give a history lesson on the machine, nor am I going to write up a bunch of reasons why I love the system so much. You can find greater and more amazing articles everywhere else, and if you’re up for a daily fix of articles about classic NES games, Gamespite has you covered for the duration of the month. What I am going to do though is simply link you to all of the NES stuff we’ve featured on this site before. See, I apparently just never got over the era and Shamoozal has had its fair share of NES related content throughout the years. With that said, enjoy the run down of features!
After an whole summer hiatus Shamoozal Radio is back! The episode begins with a batch of Shocker News including the UN’s new Alien Ambassador, and a Father and Son’s awful scheme to make big bucks in prison. Joe brings us a new game called Baby Bites where we need to guess the words that Joe’s baby girl is saying. That brings us to Shamoozal news which offers a few hints into ROM Vol. 2 and leads us into a bit about Out Sourcing material. Finally we end with a batch of final thoughts ranging from inconsiderate people to SOS Wheeljack. All this and more in Shamoozal Radio Podcast #34! Be sure to drop in on the forums to discuss this episode!
Should have had this up over the weekend but I was super busy! Anyway, our fourth Anniversary starts out with a bit of an SRP shake up. The Shamoozal News segment gets pushed behind our regular news updates, and the Whore Daddy/Clutch turns into an ending thoughts of sorts. We hit up topics like the Star Wars Kid turning into a lawyer, drunk birds, and kidnapped kids found through Facebook. Sithlord brings with him a new Trivia game based around Lost called “Now You’re Like Me.” Lost spoilers are a plenty, so listen if you dare. Finally some Shamoozal news where we talk a bit about the ROM shorts and Sith gives us some insight into the show he appeared on recently called Wa$ted.
Somehow we managed to talk about The Human Centipede yet AGAIN. That isn’t really what the show is about though, it’s time for our annual Summer Movie preview! We go through a quick list of planned hits and offer our thoughts. For once we actually have some Shamoozal news and go a bit into the new Read Only Memory shorts. Plus, Nintendo Vs Apple? Craigslist is evil? Are Jim’s game punishments just too much for their own good? Find out in Shamoozal Radio Podcast #32!
Join us for SRP #31! We took a two month break, but we got together last week for a bit of SRP fun. We weren’t able to do it live since we didn’t have Steve with us, but in his place is an appearance from the only guy that updates our blog, John. We play a new game from Jim called David Caruso’s One Liner Trivia, go over a bunch of Nerd News, and just whatever else. Enjoy!
