    FUN - Episode 6 - The Secret

    And so it’s come to this! It’s the final episode of FUN with Kevin Gifford and His Pretend Pals, an exciting podcast devoted to old game/computer music and to me talking crap a lot. Download and enjoy the secret to having as much fun with your life as possible — a dwindling resource, and one that can be secured only through concerted effort. What’s the secret? You’ll have to listen to find out! (Hint: It involves the SID chip, mostly.)

    It’s been tremendous fun doing a podcast for the past six weeks and I hope you’ve enjoyed listening to the episodes. Now, presuming I get any free time before E3, back to the usual game-industry harping…

      Kevin,

      Thank you for your magnificent work on FUN! I hope you find the opportunity to guest again over the next year or two on 8-4, WAHP, etc. Of course a second season of FUN would be extremely welcome, too. I will dedicate the rest of this week to the pursuit of finding FUN in the everyday.

      I also appreciate your emphasis on using tools for expression and creativity. It seems that the concept of the individual creator has lost a lot of visibility and instead the conversation is framed as consumer vs producer. When did it become so great to be a consumer. On the other hand, as technology has become more accessible and more capable, it does follow that a smaller proportion of the user base will be savvy enough to genuinely create something.

    • Really good stuff!

      See you again in a few years. :(

    • When are you doing the next season?

    • more episodes!!!

      PS I am a game music superfan but I really tune in for your commentary,,, don’t be afraid to deliver long monologues! ;)

    • Fantastic podcast, loved every second of it. Hope you do another series and update this blog again. I am going through all the previous posts – so great! PC ENGINE!
