  1. Yes… the time that most of you were born also brought us some of the worst ‘noise’ in all of human history. Why am I not surprised?

  2. After hearing the first 5 seconds of the Rugrat Rap I knew I had heard it someplace else. Turns out it was the mc chris song Tractor Beam. I think it was Kris Kross in the Rugrats Rap. I’m not familiar with them. Is the beat lifted from one of their songs? Or something new made for the Rugrats?

  3. Great episode, except that it cut out in the middle of your ultimate duo crossover conversation. You guys could even expand that out to a top 5 epic duos or something.

  4. Why does the first guy want to show his friend the news letter for Zelda when they have the actual game right there in the room? Am I missing something there? Also its strange that so much effort went into that Dragnet music video without anybody stopping and realizing how awful it is.
