  1. Just a quick comment. I finished listening to your podcast this morning and now I am at work with the theme to Batman: The Animated Series in my head. Thanks guys.

  2. I thought it rather interesting when yall actually had a conversation about music. A little background info on me, growing up I didn’t really have a “favorite” band. I didn’t know the names, personalities, and lifestyles of the different bands or band members. I just didn’t care. I just wanted to listen to good music, that all nothing else. Yet, the music I loved to listen to was more “video game” music. There were times, as a kid, I would turn on my NES just so I could listen to the music from Contra or Dr Mario. As I got older I got excited when I would find soundtracks from video games. When my friends would talk about video games I would try to bring up how great the music was or wasn’t. But no one seemed to be interested in that area of games.

    So when I heard that yall would actually have a conversation about the music of Batman in all media it very much peaked my interest. Then you commented about how great some of the music was in some of the Batman video games and I thought “wow someone else that is just as interested in gaming music as me.”

    A few other comments, I think I might show my nephew the 66 Batman just to see what he thinks then later on show him the animated series and see what he thinks.

    I didn’t think too much of many comics now days, there just doesn’t seem to be good comics. Each series and each issue seems to be “hit or miss”. That was the same back when we were kids, but now when they miss, OH WOW, do they miss. Yet, after hearing how yall raved about a few of the stories in Detective Comics 27 I feel like I might want to pick this one up, despite the fact that it might be overpriced.

    I was listening to your podcast in the car and when yall played the opening intro to Batman: The Animated series I actually got goose bumps and the little kid inside me jumped out and proclaimed “YES! It’s time for Batman! Everyone stop what you’re doing and be quite. Its Batman time.” Then reality set in and I realized I was still in my car, driving to work.

    Because of this episode I might have to check out your other episodes that yall do.

  3. Hey Bernie!

    Awesome feedback, man. We’ve got another episode of BwAP coming up later this month, so keep an eye out for that. Of course we’ve got our weekly Funnybooks show, and Superman with Aron and Paulie, which was monthly for 2013 and will now be quarterly.

    I listened to tons of video game music growing up – soundtracks to Final Fantasy games especially. As an adult, I adore the soundtracks to Uncharted and the latest Castlevania game, Lords of Shadow, even more then I have enjoyed movie scores.

    Glad you enjoyed our first episode! It was a ton of fun putting it together and listening to all that awesome music.
