  1. OMG....we CANNOT be friends if you do not think that "Fish Heads" is one of the greatest songs of all time!
  2. As much as I am a major Brian Wilson fan....I think he needs to register as a sex offender just for this song:
  3. "Temporary Secretary," AFAIC, is Paul McCartney's most underrated song ever.
  4. One of my favorite songs ever, and interestingly it's not by one of my favorite artists ever. ๐Ÿ™‚
  5. A schnook returns from his summer hiatus with this new chapter, recorded in August 2021 and released in October. Returning to the office in transitional pandemic times, his favorite band selling out, andโ€ฆjust general schnookery! Certain to be a mammoth blockbuster! https://schnookpodcast.com/2021/10/11/chapter-36/
  6. It's still summer -- what better time to play miniature golf? Wait, what?? It's RAINING?? (or it's actually winter in your part of the world?) Well...good news: there's a miniature golf game you can play on your Atari 7800! Here's a new podcast episode about it! http://homebrew78.fab4it.com/?name=hbh_episode_0511.mp3
  7. Having returned from their spiritual retreat to Fishfuj, Iowa, Jim and Sean are back with episode 123. Will they reveal the secret relationship between Bub and Bob? Is the toyshop in Toypop an allegory about the Russian Revolution? Listen and find out. https://piefactorypodcast.wordpress.com/2021/08/28/episode-123-bubble-bobble-and-toypop/
  8. Been weird. Good things and bad things and middle things. Taking a podcast break for the summer (still listening, just not publishing!). My dad died a month ago unfortunately and we're burying his cremains in a national cemetery next month, going to California soon, listening to a lot of vinyl lately...just got my AtariAge order that I placed in November (ooooh, can't wait to play the games!), been grilling a bit more since I got my new Weber kettle...overall, can't complain.
  9. Please tell me it uses the paddle controller!

  11. Regarding POKEY driving up the price of the cart if used...the HOKEY replacement for POKEY will be, what? Ten bucks a pop?
  12. We're calling this "the next episode" because it's not the previous episode. It's also not the first episode nor the last episode, unless something REALLY weird happens. Lookโ€ฆit's an episode. And we actually remembered to mention our RedBubble store. https://piefactorypodcast.wordpress.com/2021/06/24/the-next-episode/
  13. Due to rather unfortunate circumstances, this episode was recorded in the midst of recording another chapter 34. Possible post-Fatherโ€™s Day trigger warning. Nonetheless, I am happy to share this episode with you. ใƒป๐— ๐—ฒ๐—บ๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—ฒ๐˜€ ๐—ผ๐—ณ ๐— ๐˜† ๐—™๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ฟ โ€“ Yankees fan, country music liker, and schnook tolerater ใƒป๐— ๐˜‚๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ฐ ๐—ณ๐—ผ๐—ฟ ๐—ฆ๐—ฐ๐—ต๐—ป๐—ผ๐—ผ๐—ธ๐˜€: ๐—œ ๐—ฅ๐—ฒ๐—บ๐—ฒ๐—บ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ ๐—š๐—น๐—ฒ๐—ป ๐—–๐—ฎ๐—บ๐—ฝ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ๐—น๐—น โ€“ thoughts about one of the most talented musicians of the 20th century https://schnookpodcast.com/2021/06/22/chapter-34/

  15. Episode 122 has been unleashed! Ikey and Mikie, in a most exclusive place, were held up by a mugger, who cut up Ikey's favorite coat and robbed him, and hit him with a hose. But Mikie grabbed the scoundrel, and punched him in the no-good head repeatedly, until he ran away, so Ikey and Mikie went back to Name That Tune. https://piefactorypodcast.wordpress.com/2021/05/31/episode-122-mikie-and-name-that-tune-2/

  17. One game is about kids who answer trivia questions and run through a chocolate and slime filled obstacle course. The other is about a New Jersey kid who moves to California and is bullied by martial arts jocks. What could the theme be? Only you, the listener, will find out. https://piefactorypodcast.wordpress.com/2021/04/27/episode-121-double-dragon-and-kung-fu-master/
  18. Mine has been stuck in my 7800 since it arrived the day I got home from my vacation two and a half weeks ago.
  19. Getting in under the wire before the month expires, itโ€™s time for another chapter in the life of a schnook! In this episode: New York: Itโ€™s complicated. How the Big Apple and a schnook get alongโ€ฆor maybe donโ€™t get along. Music for Schnooks: Four (or more?) from โ€™84 โ€“ the soundtrack of a past life https://schnookpodcast.com/2021/03/31/chapter-31/
  20. Thanks to the response from Listeners Like Youโ„ข, we decided to go back and address feedback from our previous episode. Your top ten desert island games (assuming your desert island has an adequate power source, of course) and of course all the other heartwarming (or heartburning?) dialog you're familiar with from Jim'n'Sean are discussed in this Very Special Episodeยฎ๏ธ. https://piefactorypodcast.wordpress.com/2021/03/23/episode-120-revisited/
  21. After taking a month off, we're back with a new episode! In fact, after recording the main body, it turned out there was more room for one more story, so in comes a special guest to the rescue!

  22. 'Swonderful. 'Smarvelous. 'Stime for episode 120! If each of the hosts of Pie Factory Podcast had his druthers, which games would heโ€™d ruther have in his home arcade over all the other ones?

  23. Episode 119 has DROPPED! New month, new year, new U.S. President, New Balance Stores Phoenix, and...oh, yeah! NEW EPISODE! Woohoo! What more can we say, but....vroom! Chop! https://piefactorypodcast.wordpress.com/2021/01/24/episode-119-hang-on-and-golden-axe/
  24. For me the attraction in Combat 1990 is that it's a one-player game. The reason I didn't like Combat on the 2600 is that it requires two players: given that when we got the 2600 in 1982 my brother was (and, actually, still is, now that I think of it!) ten years older than me, I was kinda-sorta an only child for all practical purposes. Yeah, I had friends, but they didn't always want to play Combat!
