    Ruminating On A Sad Song Ep 2

    Welcome back to Ruminations from the Red Room. On this episode here to hold my hand, pat my knee, wipe away the tears and say “there there” are returning guests Mike “Arvig” Arvig and Charlie “triple C” Langley.
    We join our trio of heroes for episode 2 of our Rumination on sad songs. Just to catch you up if you missed ep1, we’re using Tom Reynolds book “I Hate Myself and Want to Die” as a jumping off point, going chapter by chapter, and enjoying a little review and reflection on the songs he presented as the 52 most depressing songs. This chapter bears the same name as the book, I Hate Myself and Want to Die…..

    So you can build your playlist and play along, here are the tracks we listen to during this episode:
    Goodbye to love (1972) The Carpenters
    At seventeen (1974) Janis Ian
    My Immortal (2003) Evanescence
    It Must Be Him (1967) Vicki Carr
    One (1989) Metallica

    Ruminations: Wandering thoughts, ideas, and conversations that enjoy the 
    journey over the destinations

    We turn geek mode on full blast, with some well deserved gushing, and reminiscing over the great Virtua Fighter series of video games. SEGA dropped this genre busting title on the world way back in 1993, and in this episode, Hoptimus, C-Trip, Anthony and JJJ talk early experience with the game, and what this 27 year love affair has meant, and why the fire still burns. Join the whole gang on Mixer when the crew gets rollin’ and watch their skills on display. Stay tuned for more info on where to put your peepers, so you can see if we can put our quarters where our mouths are…or something to that effect.

    Ruminations-Who Loves a Good Conspiracy?

    Ruminations-Who Loves a Good Conspiracy?

    Ruminations on Good Ol’ Conspiracy Theories

    We needed a breather. The world seems on the verge of change. Anything not focused on the issues that face us, seems trivial. But we will try to take a moment and distract ourselves with some Ruminations Conspiracy Style. Kyle and Kenny weigh in on some of the most popular conspiracy theories in America. No, we don’t look at them scientifically, we don’t dissect them academically, and we don’t provide any kind of data supporting or refuting them….we just joke around, and try to have a laugh in a world where its seemingly harder and harder to find one. Listen to the end as Kenny drops some wisdom on embracing others theories, and we all come to a place where we know its really not a judgment its all in fun, and sometimes, we are all looking for something to believe in.

    Ruminations - on a Sad Song ep. 1

    What is it about a sad song? Some of us only like them when we ourselves are feeling blue, others might seek them out regardless of their current mood. What makes a song really sad, and what factors contribute to getting that feeling across to the audience?
    We start our mini-series using Tom Reynolds 2005 book “I Hate Myself and Want to Die” as inspiration, guide-post, and subject of review. We start with Mr. Reynolds first chapter: I was a Teenage Car Crash. Please note that none of this is meant to take the serious nature of a sad song lightly. When first picking up the book, I expected a deeper dive into what made a sad song, what motivated the author of each track, maybe biographical info that gave us insight into the artist that was moved to pen their heartbreak, and set it to music. Like many times in life, we find the laughs to make it through the pain…
    The episode starts with a harrowing tale of Mike and an alley fire…
    Finding the solace in a sad song is a beautiful human experience, through the music, lyrics, or the brilliant combination of both. Hope you find comfort in some of this, be it from the artists works, or in the simple knowledge that someone has felt what you are feeling, and none of us are in this alone.

    Ruminations - Blurinations From the Red Room; Reboot vs Sequel

    Ruminations - Blurinations From the Red Room; Reboot vs Sequel

    Ruminations with drinks in hand....
    Well, you can only keep a lid on it for so long. We needed to cut loose and talk about something other than THAT right now. We gather from multiple points around this great nation, and revisit a couple great topics that have been breezed over before. Original vs sequel vs reboot vs remake….are they all just cash grabs? How are they different from a cover song? What makes a good cover song for that matter ? Too many drinks or maybe just enough it’s Silliness From the Red Room. Enjoy.

    Ruminations - Ken and Kyle Once more with Feelings

    A couple weeks ago, we did a double dose of Ruminating in the Red Room. This is the second of those podcasts. Its been a couple weeks, and in this brave new world, that’s buckets and buckets full of time. We hit a couple fun things beside the usual Corona-update, including; Movies-we change they do not, so why does Kyle now like Captain America: First Avenger, Ken forgives Thor after Taika Waititi gets ahold of the character; Beverages- trying new ones, and Ken proposes a fun new collectible. Food- breakfast cereals and burritos; what’s your go-to? We also get an unplanned, but very appreciated breakdown and review of Last of Us from Ken. As the second game approaches, how many of you are going through a replay of this classic work of art?
