Themes From A Memory turns THREE! For those that don't know, this is our annual show where we play blocks of TV themes songs! Each Octo-Host has picked three of our favorites for you (these can be intro songs from retro cartoons and/or sitcoms). Once we are done with those, Nintenjoe will be playing two MEGA BLOCKS of all Retroid requests! It's gonna be a grand ole time for your nostalgia hungry ears so buckle up, grab a fruit roll-up and prepare to ROCK! After all of that, 8-Bit Alchemy will be presenting this week's B-Segment in the form of another edition of COMPOSE YO-SELF! ----------------------------------------Retro Ridoctopus is:• Parasite Steve (read)• 8-Bit Alchemy (listen)• Nintenjoe (subscribe)----------------------------------------All original heavy metal music by Enchanted Exile This podcast is powered by Pinecast.
The man, the myth, our wayward third host... NINTENJOE is finally back! The term Nintendo Hard has been used to describe video games that are especially challenging (Dark Souls for one). For this momentous episode, we'll spotlight some seriously hard video games on the original Nintendo. Some of these games are beloved classics and others are more obscure, but make no mistake... there isn't a cake walk in the bunch! Later on, we'll read the answers to an OCTOPONDER THIS question we posted all the was back on May 20th! And finally, Parasite Steve will try hijacking one of 8-Bit Alchemy's classic B Segments from season 1! ----------------------------------------Retro Ridoctopus is:• Parasite Steve (read)• 8-Bit Alchemy (listen)• Nintenjoe (subscribe)----------------------------------------All original heavy metal music by Enchanted Exile This podcast is powered by Pinecast.

A happy little tree here, a sleepy mountain there... For this friendly episode of the Retro Ridoctopus podcast, 8-Bit Alchemy has got his pallet loaded with some phthalo blue, alizarin crimson and liquid hwite. Using only our fan brush, we are gonna try our best to paint you a nice little portrait of TV legend, Bob Ross! We'll start with his time spent in Alaska and work our way into his public life and work of bringing joy and relaxation to generations of folks as well as various woodland creatures. A little later on, we'll ask you to Octoponder what classic video game or movie landscape you would have loved to see Bob paint. And to round things out... Parasite Steve is gonna go ahead and step out of character to bring you some uncomfortable nature facts about 3 of the smelliest trees in the world! ----------------------------------------Retro Ridoctopus is:• Parasite Steve (read)• 8-Bit Alchemy (listen)• Nintenjoe (subscribe)----------------------------------------All original heavy metal music by Enchanted Exile \,,/ This podcast is powered by Pinecast.

We cover the production powerhouse, Saban Entertainment, who's TV shows helped shape an entire generation of kids! Love them or not, Saban cracked the code on how to produce low cost entertainment that would strike a chord with viewers. In some cases adapting Japanese programming for a new audience and in many others creating something new! The results were admittedly varied, but anyone who grew up in the 1990s is sure to have some one or two fond memories sparked by this episode! Later on, we'll read your answers for this week's OCTOPONDER THIS before finally giving the floor over to Boss Rush Mode for some fresh peeve petting! ----------------------------------------Retro Ridoctopus is:• Boss Rush Mode (watch)• Parasite Steve (read)• 8-Bit Alchemy (listen)• Nintenjoe (subscribe)----------------------------------------All original heavy metal music by Enchanted Exile.Listen to their sophomore album "Bloodwork Scriptorium" right now!Episode Notes

It's time to break out the double A's because this week, we are powering up some classic handheld video games and toys. They may not be sophisticated, but you could pick most up for short dough back in the day and all were 100% guaranteed to improve long car rides. At least that was the theory. We cover the Merlin by Parker Brothers, some table top arcade action by Coleco and who didn't own a few of those Tiger LCD games?? The episode even veers into toy territory with the legendary Speak and Spell and the not so legendary Etch-A-Sketch Animator 2000!! ----------------------------------------Retro Ridoctopus is:• Boss Rush Mode (watch)• Parasite Steve (read)• 8-Bit Alchemy (listen)• Nintenjoe (subscribe)----------------------------------------All original heavy metal music by Enchanted Exile.Listen to their sophomore album "Bloodwork Scriptorium" right now!
Shigeru Miyamoto has created some of the most beloved video game characters of all time. We talk about his early work with Donkey Kong and a certain plumber called Jumpman, all the way past The Legend of Zelda and into the future with Star Fox! Happy birthday, Mr. Miyamoto and thanks for all the mushrooms! Later on, we'll ask this week's Octo-Ponder This question before Boss Rush Mode Pets some Peeves about the Lovecraftian Hellscape that was 2020. ----------------------------------------Retro Ridoctopus is:• Boss Rush Mode (watch)• Parasite Steve (read)• 8-Bit Alchemy (listen)• Nintenjoe (subscribe)----------------------------------------All original heavy metal music by Enchanted Exile.Listen to their sophomore album "Bloodwork Scriptorium" right now!
Star Wars fans are a divided bunch but there are a few things we can all agree on. Empire is better than Clones, whoever said the pen is mightier than the sword never wielded a lightsaber and however you feel about the prequels, the Star Wars Holiday Special is undeniably the worst Star Wars thing EVER. Most of the Octo-Hosts had seen it before but for the sake of this episode, we sat through the thing again. That's right. 2 hours of unintelligible howling, humor that doesn't land, cringe worthy appearances from your favorite characters and most of all... PAIN. Later on, 8-Bit Alchemy asks this week's Octoponder THIS question and Parasite Steve spotlights "How Much Do You Tip An Exorcist" for another edition of BOOKSHELF OF THE DAMNED. Order your copy of "How Much Do You Tip an Exorcist?" by Patrick Rahall! ----------------------------------------Retro Ridoctopus is:• Boss Rush Mode (watch)• Parasite Steve (read)• 8-Bit Alchemy (listen)• Nintenjoe (subscribe)----------------------------------------All original heavy metal music by Enchanted Exile.Listen to their sophomore album "Bloodwork Scriptorium" right now!

In honor of the PS2's 20th anniversary and for your "edutainment", the Octo-hosts dust off 8 of our favorite Playstation 2 games!

This week, we are joined by the velvet-voiced Taryn Barber from Amalga-Mania, who came packing her (original grey) NES Zapper. Together, the five of us set our sites on some of the best video game peripherals of old! Sure you had the games, but what about the NES Advantage, ROB the Robot or the POWER GLOVE? Also... what the heck is a U-Force? Later we get a NEXT LEVEL voice mail from Portland Maine DJ Rick Johnson who wants to talk Track and Field! And to close things out, Parasite Steve drops the first DIE MONSTER of season 2 in a micro follow-up to our bonus episode, "The Crow's Nest: Faxanadu's & Faxanadont's". Follow Amalga-Mania on Facebook and be sure to check out the legendary Amalga-Market and bid on some insanely cool stuff like action figures and comics! ----------------------------------------Retro Ridoctopus is:• Boss Rush Mode (watch)• Parasite Steve (read)• 8-Bit Alchemy (listen)• Nintenjoe (subscribe)----------------------------------------All original heavy metal music by Enchanted Exile.Listen to their sophomore album "Bloodwork Scriptorium" right now!

In honor of Bill & Ted: Face The Music, we look back on two films which feature the most non-heinous exploits of Bill S. Preston Esq. and Ted "Theodore" Logan! Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure and their subsequent Bogus Journey are two silly, good times type films with a very positive message. Sure they have more plot holes than all six seasons of LOST combined, but they also remind us to BE EXCELLENT TO EACH OTHER! \,,/ After the main discussion, we'll ask you to name a historical person, place or moment that you'd use the time booth to witness! And finally, Nintenjoe parties on with both B&T soundtracks for a most triumphant edition of POWER TO THE METAL! ----------------------------------------Retro Ridoctopus is:• Boss Rush Mode (watch)• Parasite Steve (read)• 8-Bit Alchemy (listen)• Nintenjoe (subscribe)----------------------------------------All original heavy metal music by Enchanted Exile.Listen to their sophomore album "Bloodwork Scriptorium" right now!
