A lack of sleep and a fuzzy look back at the hedonistic world of 2012 got us some pretty weird places when we tried to watch a 20 year old shaving commercial. On the up side, after this episode you will definitely know how to make your own bath bombs.

Long time listeners may recall when I basically zoned out and created a space religion during our Regal Cinemas Roller Coaster episode. This episode is one of those. Enjoy?

This week I brought the music video to a rocking, er, rarking track from New Zealand rappers Machete Clan. Based in Wangaz, no one has told these boys that the world sucks now and to stop partying. Because they haven't. And they probably still wouldn't. God speed to them.

Such is their charisma and the power of this banging track that we start out skeptical but end up basically inviting ourselves over to hang with them.

Our mixer is on the fritz and ruined this week's recording. Didn't realize it til after the fact because I don't monitor while we record. Fuuuuck

Anyway, new mixer on the way, should be here Monday. We should have an episode next week.

And here's that episode, it's the wrestling intro for Val Venis, whose gimmick was that he was also a porn star? But not in our world, no. In our world this goes very differently.

S2:E54 - Val Venis Wrestling Intro (The preview image is bordering on NSFW. Here's the direct episode link if you want to avoid that.)

Also the ruined episode from last week, which is maybe less ruined and more just a little more difficult to listen to, is up in a new section on the About page along with the other oddball episodes if you really need to hear what might have been. It has a raccoon and SCART cables!

And of course we continue to make these but I've not been posting them here for [INSERT GOOD REASON]

Anyway, latest ep is out:

S2:E60 – John Cena Presents: SKYY Blue

We are cruising up fast on the end of the year and with that the end of Season 2. We'll probably have an intermission episode week during the holidays and then start Season 3 with no delay in 2019.

We'll likely have another listener survey to fill out to gauge reactions and take suggestions so I'll be linking that here sometime soon as well. If you have specific suggestions or critiques I'll be happy to answer them here outside the realm of the survey. We really appreciate everyone who listens and comments!

What what we've made 100 episodes of this thing?

Actually this episode was super fun to record. I think you can probably tell from the cold open what a good time we were having. I think you'll have a good time too!

This week is a deep look into early-to-mid-90s California-based stoner buddy comedies with the Encino Man trailer, if such a thing tickles your fancy, buuuuuuuddy

Every time I hear "Encino Man" my mind imagines some sort of GTA-inspired screwball comedy rather than Tarzan-meets-Bill-and-Ted. I don't know what this says about me.

Hey everyone! If you've listened to Video Death Loop (or even if you haven't and you're just reading this) it would be super sweet of you if you could fill out our 2018 Listener Survey.

You can let us know what you liked, what you want different and how you'd like to see the show to grow. This feedback is pretty important to us as we're about to have an end-of-the-year sit down to plan how we approach Season 3. It will only take a minute! So please, again, fill out our 2018 Listener Survey.

Thanks so much!

I didn't post it when it dropped but if you're not done with the holidays yet, you could give our latest episode a listen where we discuss the old Aarby's Holly Days Tumblers and share terrible secret college shames.

Season 3 is liiiiiiiive! Live I say! Unlike those who have fallen under the spell of Dr. Pepper's 23 delicious flavors. It was really good to get back to the studio with John after a couple of weeks off over the holidays. I think you can tell we had a lot of fun.
