Default Season 2 of Video Death Loop! More loops, better mics, free smells!

Hey all, just launched a new podcast with my friend called Video Death Loop. We watch a short video clip on loop and just lose our minds. Listen, laugh and enjoy our pain, please!

For our first episode, we watched the Family Matters theme song and learned that maybe, there were some darker things lurking in shadows of the Family Matters-verse.

We'll be dropping new episodes every Friday, and we've got a solid backlog at this point so I can say that with some assurance.

Video Death Loop!

I like it! I enjoyed the little world you created.

Reginald VelJohnson was also a cop in Ghostbusters 2!

I haven't listened yet but this is an inspired premise.

Thanks for the interest, all. If you do listen to it, I'd love some feedback on the sound quality. We're running this thing real guerilla style at the moment and the rooms we've had to use have been kind of echo-y. I did my best in post to remove the echo and I think I've largely succeeded but I wonder how the casual listener would hear it.

I knocked together a background to get around Content ID and sent it to my co-host John who spent some time to make a YouTube version of this that will let you watch the same video as us as you listen to the podcast.

So if you want to watch this and have an easier time tuning in on YouTube than in podcast form, this is for you!

Second episode is here! This time we watch the video that launched a thousand memes - the full John Cena Titantron video.

Please enjoy!

EDIT:

Oh shit the video version is done too

Hi! I'm the other guy in the podcast! The John guy! I haven't posted since 2012 on here because I'm terrible at keeping up with message boards! But Thorn mentioned he made a thread for it and he's been sick the last couple of days, so I bravely break my silence for the sake of self-promotion. It's only the right thing to do.

Anyway, here's Episode 3, where I inflict the Golden Girls theme (Short version) over and over on ThornGhost. Thank you for being a friend, Aaron!

Post with the new ep was lost during the migration (RIP in peace post) so here's the link!

Episode 4: Crossfire Boardgame Commercial

This was my choice in retribution for John making me watch the Golden Girls theme last week. Real Talk: thanks to this commercial, as a child I never felt cool enough to actually play Crossfire. I neither owned a leather jacket NOR could I fly around in thunder storms, which seemed like a pre-requisite. John, apparently, did not have this problem.

Watching these. My brothers and I also death loop things, though its more a micro death loop. Back seven seconds 1000000 times on a DVR kinda deal. Until it becomes ... I don't know, something else.

Extreme video death loop edition suggestion: I want a buzzer to go off randomly and you have to instantly add a pun related to whatever was onscreen to your dialogue. And eat a hot pepper if you mess up.

Yeah. Death looooop

Thanks, Guild! We'll...see about the hot pepper pun challenge.

It's Friday, so Episode 5 audio only podcast is live! This time, John made me watch the American DiC opening to Sailor Moon.

This episode was really difficult to get any kind of narrative going. I'm not sure if it was the animation or the disjointed nature of the themesong, but we spent a LOT more time talking about ICQ that I would have expected. I still think it's a good episode, just a little different.

Also, the video version of episode 4 is up as well if that's more your speed:

Episode 6 is live, and I have no idea what I was thinking with the video selection here. We watched a "Dude, you're getting a Dell" commercial that featured a (presumed) friend of the Dell dude named Mr. Foster. I think I picked it because there was some very weird ambiguity as to the relationship between the three main characters in the commercial.

Naturally, Video Death Loop happened and those relationship were teased out in excruciating detail to a very weird place.

The room we've been recording these in is very echoey and this was the last episode we recorded before I started implementing a cheaply made "portable studio" box. I've been doing what I can with the audio, and I don't think it sounds too bad, but starting next week I think it should lose that reverb that you can sometimes hear.

I'd love to hear some comments on the audio quality if anyone has some time.

Fun fact: before he became the Dell guy, the Dell guy went to an Episcopal church not far from where I grew up. After the Dell commercials started up, a friend from high school told us he used to go to church with that guy, and said "He used to be cool."

I'd later attend that same church when I became Episcopalian, though both were long gone by then.

OK this episode is probably my favorite of what we've recorded so far, but also legitimately the most painful. The Sex and the City 2 Trailer (a choice inspired by The Worst Idea of All Time podcast) is a beast of a video, the only saving grace was that it's really long so we only had to watch it 20 something times.

Thanks to Dragon Con, I didn't have time to get on here and post the newest ep of VDL the day it dropped. I retaliate against John for making me watch the Sex and the City 2 trailer by choosing that old omni-present Bagel Bites commercial from the 90s.

“When pizza’s on a bagel, you can have pizza any time.”

Sure, we all know that’s true, but the question to ask is: why? We dig deep into the intricate lore surrounding the infamous Bagel Bites theme song and find out how it all relates to soda revivalism and modern American politics.

If you want pizza that tastes like shit even by frozen-food "standards".

Woop woop it's Friday and there's a new VDL! This one is especially for our video game fans: slip into that comforting womb of neon lights, sticky floors and teen angst and join us as we watch the Daytona USA attract mode on loop.

Let's go away!

Oh man, I just realized I was a total dingbat at the beginning of this episode and mixed up Sid Meier and Wil Wright almost immediately. I'm just going to pretend I did that for the correction comments. Yeah. That's the ticket.

On the other hand, I kind of really want to play Sid Meier's SimCity now.
