Yes, Patrick Norton! I don't know why my brain immediately went to Patrick Klepek. Too much Giant Bomb I guess.

Anyway, this week we watched the Kiss from a Rose Music Video featuring Seal. And Batman! Plus: cats and anime.

I don't know which episode it was you detail your experience in pirating old games but I have to say it struck a chord with me. I spend much more time figuring out how to modify config files to point to local copies of files instead of CD and trying to get custom firmware on my consoles than I do just generally playing the dang games most of the time.

Proooobably the Screen Savers episode? Seems like it would inspire that conversation. I think that may be a pretty common thing, there's something just about the hunt, you know?

Anyway, new ep, which inspired this excellent picture from this weekend!

You could also play as Hillary, right?

Anyway, this week we watched the classic Patterson bigfoot film, well, the part with bigfoot anyway. Not the part with the horse and stuff. I had a super lot of fun with this one, a good reminder to not always chase that 80s-90s nostalgia trip.

Hi, I'm sneaking on here to make the post this time because I have the free time at the moment! Take that, Thorn!

Anyway, we watched the Ready Player One trailer on loop and wonder what the people of Graal Online would think of it. Also, I think we figured out the actual writing/editing process for the book happened.

This week we are back and dredging up terrible old pop songs as is our want. Plus, John is locked in seriously and deadly battle for the Shaq Fu world record speed run time!

I recognized this video immediately, even though I had never seen the show. Or honestly any of the movies. Such the power of karate.

I think the director of the 80s-era Shoney's seafood commercial that we watched for this week's episode had a very strange creative vision to sex up fried shrimp, and I can't say that it worked. Like, at all. It's worth watching, really.

Also, more updates on the Shaq Fu world record hunt!

I have been informed that the first Panda Express to not be part of a mall opened in the mid-90s. Admittedly it wasn't until most of the way through the last decade (like, around 2005 or maybe a year or so later) that I saw and recognized the establishment in the wild. I do distinctly remember being caught off-guard by the fact that it wasn't in a food court.

Yeah, I think they were just late moving the non-mall stores into the area where I live.

Anyway, new episode is up and it's another old food commercial, only this time it's for hot dogs and features 80s hair metal band Cinderella. It's...pretty weird.

This week is a reader-suggested video that dovetails nicely with a story we had to tell. The video is a Game Genie commercial and the story is the time we met the human Game Genie, Billy Mitchell. Enjoy.

Another fan suggestion this week with the bizarre, but amazingly catchy theme song from a Canadian kids show in the late 80s.

Until we watched this trailer, I didn't realize how very little I remembered of The Spirits Within. As such I had very little to say about the film itself, so we mostly talked about other things to try and ignore this trailer.

Couldn't get enough of that Elder Scrolls VI teaser from E3? I promise you, after about 100 loops, you can.

Not 100% sure how we got from a Doom speedrun to my middle school gym teacher's short shorts, but here we are. That's the magic of Video Death Loop I suppose.

It's Video Death Loop's two year anniversary!

John and I treat ourselves this episode by watching our favorite TV show theme songs. Also we learn John's dark origin story!

If I ever found myself needing to describe this show to an outsider, I will absolutely use the word "frasieroubouros" in the process.

That was probably the most complimentary thing anyone has ever said about any creative output of mine.

Did you waste your childhood waking up early on Fridays to eat your Nintendo Cereal System and watch your Zelda cartoons? So did...so did we. Proving we've learned nothing, we continue these terrible decisions in this week's Video Death Loop.

I didn't get all the way through the ep yet so my apologies if this joke is in there

That's...probably a way better joke than we came up with during the show. Also, muteKi

thank you so much for submitting this week's video.

I'm sure the creator of this video will definitely not stalk and kill us.

This week we watched The Brady Bunch opening theme on repeat and realized that it's basically a fighting game? Or maybe Mega Man? Anyway there's video games AND haunted tiki idols, so, you know, get in on that.

Hm, does this mean if you defeat Marcia you get a triple-shot weapon?
