ep28: rainbow connection

happy pride everybody! let's see if we can still name all our colors in order, and let's go ahead and do it four times. we'll have, very roughly speaking, (1) a bombastic rainbow, (2) a pulsing rainbow, (3) an intimate rainbow and (4) a sentimental rainbow.

quadruple rainbow, what does it meannnnnnnnnnnn

Let's GOOOOOOO

TAndy 6:06:18 PM
Happy pride month, now gimme presents. (This is how it works now.)
Tis (host) 6:07:10 PM
Works for me, I love giving out 🎵presents🎵
TAndy 6:08:34 PM
gasps... TWO hours of music?? You shouldn't have!
Tis (host) 6:09:21 PM
And more where that came from next week
Tis (host) 6:09:26 PM
Can't stop won't stop
TAndy 6:14:51 PM
I have a very deep cut/"obscure" request for a future show
Tis (host) 6:15:13 PM
Yes please
TAndy 6:16:19 PM
Any track you may like from the SpongeBob Legend of the Post Spatula game from GBC. Really funky plinks and plonks courtesy of Manfred Linzner
TAndy 6:16:27 PM

Tis (host) 6:17:18 PM
Oooh, and he did demoscene things too
Tis (host) 6:17:34 PM
Definitely a demoscene episode happening some day
TAndy 6:17:55 PM
👀
Tis (host) 6:18:59 PM
I don't know enough to pull it off yet, but I have recently run into a couple of demo composers doing research, and it feels like a start
TAndy 6:19:39 PM
Perhaps something to save for the end of the season? Think of it like a final project, but for the radio
Tis (host) 6:21:35 PM
This summer has kind of a lot of final projects already weirdly enough, but I will certainly start the percolating :D
TAndy 6:26:51 PM
You're really pushing me over the edge on wanting to legit reread Homestuck again
TAndy 6:27:07 PM
I just gotta download the unofficial reader and all of its glorious gigabytes
Tis (host) 6:28:31 PM
Now that is a final project ;)
TAndy 6:33:50 PM
It'll likely take me until around Christmastime to finish reading it
Tis (host) 6:35:51 PM
Yes, assuming you want to, like, sleep and eat as well
TAndy 6:41:57 PM
I mean I could also read it at work too but... Something about reading it in the same style and format from 10+ years ago is the appeal
Tis (host) 6:45:59 PM
You are talking to someone who not infrequently plays 40-year-old video game music on the radio; of COURSE being able to archive and relive the art as originally intended is the way to go!!! :)
TAndy 6:55:44 PM
As a digital hoarder/part time archivist, so true.
Ossy 6:58:12 PM
Nice 8bits
Tis (host) 6:59:04 PM
👾🥰👾🥰👾🥰
Tis (host) 6:59:20 PM
Good evening, Ossy!
Ossy 6:59:42 PM
With Mega Man and Kirby vibes
Ossy 7:00:49 PM
Last Monday was dominated on Kirby Dream Land 2 by King DDD. Intensely overpowered as hell
Tis (host) 7:02:12 PM
Thank you! Love that blown-out NES sound
Ossy 7:16:32 PM
And love this current one, new to me!
Ossy 7:17:24 PM
Also, love lot, Corinne Rae, especially her classic "Girl Put Your Records On"
Tis (host) 7:19:32 PM
She's lovely! And still innovating -- the new album is fun
Tis (host) 7:19:54 PM
And if you're OK with both her and Kirby's Adventure, you are very much listening to the right show 😂
Guelo <3 7:22:01 PM
Soooooooo fire the green hill zone im cry
Ossy 7:22:03 PM
Oh yeah and speaking of rainbows and Kirby https://kirby.fandom.com/wiki/Hypernova
Ossy 7:22:57 PM
and in the wiki there's a rainbow themed like stage on the 1st named Ripple Star in Kirby 64
Tis (host) 7:26:15 PM
Hi Guelo!!!! So glad you enjoyed <3
Tis (host) 7:26:38 PM
I need to play more Kirby
TAndy 7:27:00 PM
First time hearing this band, it rules.
Ossy 7:27:55 PM
Tis - Will try for Star Allies and Forgotten Land. Plus Kirby had an anime in the early 2000s on Saturday mornings
Tis (host) 7:28:13 PM
@TAndy Counter Intuitive is an awesome label, I've found a ton of good stuff through them
Tis (host) 7:32:17 PM
@Ossy which platforms are those games on?
Ossy 7:39:28 PM
Star Allies and Forgotten Land are on Switch
Ossy 7:39:53 PM
Forgotten Land is one of the recent Kirby games
Tis (host) 7:42:28 PM
Oh, is that the most recent one?
TAndy 7:44:35 PM
aaaaargh I need to finish this mod
Tis (host) 7:46:50 PM
Thank you so much for putting me onto it!
TAndy 7:47:18 PM
Chujin my beloved........
Ossy 7:49:02 PM
Tis - Yeah, last year. They have a party cuisine one named Kirby Dream Buffet, that came out later after Forgotten Land
Tis (host) 7:49:43 PM
Oh cool
Ossy 7:50:06 PM
This Luminist sounds similar to something off the older Zelda GBA games, like forests in Link's Awakening
Tis (host) 7:52:14 PM
The original Chrono Trigger track is definitely going for that, but it's warmer; Luminist put it through some analog synths that make it sound a little more forbidding and foggy
TAndy 7:52:38 PM
Thanks for the show! Much appreciation as always
Tis (host) 7:55:06 PM
Thanks to you and Ossy and Guelo for stopping by, it's so nice to be back!
Tis (host) 7:55:12 PM
Going to be a good summer
Ossy 7:55:46 PM
Tis - That makes beautiful sense and mysterious and greta broadcast you welcome!
Tis (host) 7:57:20 PM
