Desmond and DW are on a rock n' roll odyssey to review their favorite bands' discographies album-by-album, track-by-track. You see, kids: there used to be things called albums that were a collection of songs by a single musical artist or group of artists. You may have to take our word on that.
Dropped D - Episode 05.05
It's been a really long time, but Dropped D is back for the time being. Desmond and Damian waste no time as the puns begin to fly inside of the first minute. Besides covering Trent Reznor's descent into EDM music on Nine Inch Nails' 2006 record With Teeth, the boys discover which of the two is more cultured in their Simpsons references, find that one of them is far more lenient than the other in NIN's new softer era, reminisce about the dark detective era of Denzel Washington's filmography, play a round of the brand new game Old or White?, and much more.

Dropped D - Episode 05.04
Since it's been so long between recordings, this episode Damien and Desmond spend the whole time catching up. Topics include bad celebrity impersonations, guitar strings, music-based video games, metal album appearances, and the sobering reality of raves that Hollywood doesn't want you to know about. There is also an epic-length, four-part tangent that devolves into perhaps history's greatest recorded conversation about Bootsy Collins. And what exactly strikes Damien speechless and causes Desmond to apologize? You'll have to listen. Oh yeah! The guys also review the Nine Inch Nails double concept record The Fragile.

Dropped D - Episode 05.03
If you think this is going to be a good episode of Dropped D, then you might not be wrong. Come musician with us as we discuss Nine Inch Nails' second official full-length release: The Downward Spiral. But, be warned: there is math involved. Also, there's some valuable dating advice, the topic of one of the lost episodes of Dropped D is leaked, white guy rap returns, Desmond has a lot of second-favorite songs on this album, Damien does some shady Google searching, and Desmond is all about making weird noises. All this and much, much more! Let us know what you thought: firstname.lastname@example.org, and 410.871.8192.
Dropped D - Episode 05.02
So, you've just ridden a wave of underground popularity with a record that was 100% rock-driven synth pop. What do you do? Well, if your record label wants you to capitalize on that, you say "F**k you" and release Broken. Nine Inch Nails' 1992 sounds so radically different from what came before that it's almost a new band. Which is weird because it's all basically one guy. Sit back and enjoy the conversation of an industrial metal classic by Desmond and Damien, two former members of Pigface. Oh, and an overview of the Grammy for Best Metal Performance throughout the 1990s, AKA Megadeth: Always a Bridesmaid, Never a Bride. Let us know what you thought: email@example.com, and 410.871.8192.
Dropped D - Episode 05.01
It's been a year since our last episode! But wait! It's not entirely our fault. Listen to the saga of two lost episodes, high school yearbook write-ups, CD singles, and an album that is full of dichotomies. Tease up your hair and pull on your legwarmers for the first and 80s-est release from current Oscar-winning film composer Trent Reznor in a little known band he used to have called Nine Inch Nails: Pretty Hate Machine. What does Halo mean? What does it sound like when a white guy raps over Depeche Mode? Does your kitchen have any Lionel Richie-branded paraphernalia? A Bobby Brown reference? What the hell is going on?! It's been a long time, and we needed to get a lot out of our systems. You'll enjoy it. Let us know what you thought: firstname.lastname@example.org, and 410.871.8192.
Dropped D - Intermission 02
After announcing a short hiatus for the boys, Desmond thought it wouldn't be prudent to leave you guys podcastless when there's perfectly good audio sitting around the Dropped D compound! So, presented for your approval, a piece of audio first published this past April as part of Earth-2.net: The Show's episode 500 celebration of all that is Superman. Desmond and Damien break format to do an interesting survey of eight songs featuring Superman in title or content. Hear Desmond's unceasing frustration at this barrage of 90s buffoonery. More importantly, this is where the Spin Doctors nonsense really got legs. Please be patient for a new show soon! Send your questions and comments to: email@example.com, or 410.871.8192.

This is THE BEST gaming podcast that I have ever had the pleasure of putting in my earholes. Unlike other shows, this one is not arogant. It has things for every gamer, those new to gaming all the way to us that remember what Pong was like....listen to this show...do it...do it now!
Good quality podcast and better quality rants.
I'm loving this podcast. I love that they don't just sit around saying "oh yeah, Video games rock!!! Yeah!!!" they sit and they play through a video game and they tell you about it. I love things like that.
