Akira, Tetsuo, Avatar, Nickelodeon, Japandroids, Bombast Podcast title card

Episode 20 of the show is now available at the libsyn site.  CLICK HERE to go there for the download.  You can also download the show from iTunes.

To start the show off, we talk about a few tracks from Phil’s “Best Songs of 2012” mix.  We discuss the song “The House that Heaven Built” by the 2-man art-punk group Japandroids, the expansive folk-pop song “Danse Caribe” by singer-songwriter Andrew Bird, and the pop song, “Some Nights” by Fun.  Lots of joking around ensues.  We round out our music segment by talking about the unexpected wistful folk song “70 Excuses” by Somalia-born hip hop artist K’naan.  Matt has some stuff to stay about the graphic novel series, Akira, particularly Volume 4.  Akira is a dystopian sci-fi masterpiece by Katsuhiro Otomo.  Then Phil talks about the animated series Avatar the Last Airbender, which he recently watched in its entirety.  Then somehow we get sidetracked and start talking about the Matrix movies, steampunk, and cyberpunk.
