Lather's Blather Episode #06: The Galaxy's Greatest Piece of Robot Bling

I'm aware that direct downloads don't work as smoothly as I'd like them to be--that it's necessary to rename the file as an MP3. Admittedly, I'm kinda kludging it from Gcast's URLs because I think they're really meant to stream and nothing else. I'll begin looking into alternate places to host the MP3s in hopes of having true direct downloads.

Anyway, I'll do it again for now. Direct download here, and streaming from the Gcast box on the right hand side, further down the page. Full show notes to follow, but I took advantage of the extra time it took to produce the show and already did some of the work.





Transformers
meets Saint Seiya.



And by way of comparison, the original opening for Saint Seiya.



Here's the "customized" version of Guitar Hero 2 with Lion's "Transformers Theme". Three-finger chords? That's insane!


And keeping on the subject of the theme song I'd just like to say that while I think the official version done by Mutemath and the fake Linkin Park-ish virally marketed version are just plain terrible, there is a potential heir to the throne. It's pretty faithful to the one by Lion, and it's performed by Black Lab.


Of course, if you're feeling like a total masochist, feel free to try out the fake Linkin Park or Mutemath versions for yourself.

This was another fantastic episode; the wait has been worth it. It's been so long since I've seen Transformers: The Movie that I didn't remember the majority of what you talked about. My main memories were of Ultra Magnus and Rodimus Prime, just because I didn't like the idea of replacing Optimus Prime with anyone, and I also remember just being really confused when I watched this as a kid. It's actually very similar to my memories of the GI Joe movie: I remember the emperor dude, but none of what actually happened, and I think I was just confused through most of it. Did anyone else feel the same way about these two? Anyways, I'm definitely looking forward to next episode, regardless of how long it takes.

Damnit, you reached that milestone before I did! Am I not geeky too, troll?

Thanks for playing the promo, Jeff! Can't wait for the next episode of LB.
