                    1. The Diad,

                      I love the show and will still look forward to each episode.

                      I too have a deep love for the Windmill Hut theme. The way the baseline(?) moves back and forth in stereo just floors me every time. The N64 was my first traditional console and OoT was the first game I had for it. The whole Ocarina of Time soundtrack just pulls me back into a pure time in my youth.

                      Thank you,


                      1. Thanks for the kind words, Mr. Ties.

                        I've been picking tracks and digging up Games of the Year, and I already feel like I have more time to get good information together. I think spacing episodes out for a while is the right move.

                        That's quite a way to kick off your console life! I remember I used to sit in the windmill and listen to the track loop. OoT has one of those soundtracks that really does that - transports you to another place.

                    2. Love the tracks. Also, biweekly is more than a fair trade for a show that you enjoy making and cuts your own mustard. Lives up to your own snuff. Meets your own criteria. Marks your own bench. In short, yes.

                      1. What, only 4 examples of badinage? My wife makes me sit in the other room if I cut the mustard.

                        The bi-weekly experiment is underway. I am currently listening to extra soundtracks trying to find winners for the GOTY episode. In weeks past I would already be scrambling to put together the show.

                        I'm not sure if the improvements will be apparent or not, but I really just want a product I can be happy with. NAW MEAN?
