Get Back To 8-bit // 1400-1500 11.02.10

bigo sex disease: you gotta shoot 'em in the head!

The 11th's Get Back To 8-bit was more than a little strange. The most visited by outside forces who came and went as they pleased, so it made for some interesting banter to say the least. A big thanks to Kerry, Ciaran and Ruaraidh for the use of their voiceboxes over the hour. Also, apologies to any girls listening because of our openness of how mental you are. Well. I'm sorry... the boys aren't. Here are the news items from the show... I never did get around to talking about the Google Street view madness I wanted to, so that'll happen later.

Proof that a person's mass and debauched lifestyle can in fact expel every logical thought from the body along with your bowel movements:

If you stop buying crap, they'll stop making crap:

Such an ingenious method through which to poison us, it would not surprise me if it were the work of disgruntled robots.:

re: subcity hosts. would you? i bet you would.

On this week's Get Back To 8-bit, Me and the returning Kerry will discuss what the effin' shit is going on with Google Street View, take the time to examine Michael Jackson's hard drive, delve into the possibilities of the most incredible piece of candy that will murder you and get an enormous rage-on for early contenders in 2010's 'Biggest Waste Of Money' category. In addition, there'll be a playlist of songs celebrating the underdog geeks in their pursuit of unconventional, unrequited and waste of damn time love. Join in on Thursday, 14:00, on subcity.org or download later in the day.

girls only want that john cusack boombox scene.

While my rhythmic circulation muscle might be made of darkest adamantium, I can still acknowledge that sometimes we geeks need to be loved. Because it's especially hard for the most ardent MMORPGers to get that shame and Wotsits stink off and attract a mate, this week's Get Back To 8-bit is dedicated to all those more at ease tugging themselves than tugging heart strings via songs of a supremely nerd-laden style. It's Thursday the 11th February @ 14:00. Do join in.
