MMORPG Episode #4 - May The 4th Be With U

You guessed it: another long, low action, soft hitting show reviewing music. But at least we talked over each other a little less this time around. If you ever wonder when we'll be recording the next episode so you can watch live, good luck. We don't really schedule a session in advance, and at the moment, they only happen four times a year, coinciding with our mix CD distributions. Maybe we'll try to work something out, or use social media, or something. Maybe. Just watch the video or listen to the audio.

May Brothers Mix #6

So you guys should have received a non-suspicious package by now...or maybe not...I sent it with the cheapest postage possible.  Even though I said that I was pretty much ready during our last Hangcast I sat on it and changed a few things and helped us keep our late schedule.  Hope you enjoyed my freehand copy of the above image on the disc...let me just say that each of you got a unique rendition of the mouth/tongue (so hard to draw).

MMORPG 3's Company

Above is the artwork Reid made for the cover of the first mix CD for our second season of the quarterly exchange. Below is the videocast we recorded, MMORPG 003 (click here for audio), where all four of us got together using Google Hangouts to review the songs. In this episode some improvements are noticeable in Pierce's audio and Reid's video. We are still learning how to get things right, so forgive us for our lack of structure, not using social media, not including the names of the songs and bands we are reviewing, constantly talking over each other, and possible copyright infringement. These issues will dissolve when we finally become rich and professional. And powerful...

Thommy Boy

At least two of us contributors are devout Thom Yorke-ists, and on the previous mix CD Joel included a Thom Yorke solo track called Atoms for Peace. It looks like he helped form a new band with Flea and some other slightly famous dudes using the track's title as the band name. I heard about it on the All Songs Considered podcast. The Radiohead legacy is nothing to be effed with, but I don't worship their toenails or anything. The discussion on the podcast is mainly about how they put their music together. It's some kind of electronic free-form collaboration, which definitely interests me currently. Listen to it here.

Fan Art

We just got our first piece of fan art. Created by the great Matt Napoletano. This is actually the first acknowledgement of our work's existence from the outside world.

Best of MBM 2012

So I figured it would be good to make a top ten list of the songs we liked from the other's MBM contributions for the year 2012.  Rules are; it has to be from a MBM in 2012 and you can't pick your own songs.  Hopefully we had at least ten songs we all collectively appreciatiated.
