Like a book club, but with video games.

Proposition: New theme tune for gentlemen dicussing vidya


When I started recording Gentlemen Discussing Vidya, I asked one Mr. Mike Arvela if we could borrow one of his songs to use as the theme tune for the podcast. He very kindly agreed. I am eternally grateful to him, because I didn’t want to write my own music – at that point I thought the podcast might last 2 or 3 episodes at most, and I wasn’t really interested in going to all the effort of writing a theme tune for it.

Well, we’ve apparently lasted for 34. The time has come. So have yourselves a listen and tell me what you think in the comments.

I am going to miss Mr. Arvela’s remix of the Matlock theme tune, and I don’t think there will ever be an interpretation (of that song, or of any song) quite as good. But dangit, we need to stop leeching of other people who are more talented that I. Sorry, Benny Goodman. If it’s any consolation, you’re dead, and I don’t think that ‘borrowing’ music from dead people should be illegal.

The song is supposed to sound seedy and maybe a little bit hip hoppity. I reuse an old motif from my unreleased soundtrack to the game ‘Hatman’. Would anyone here like to rap over the closing credits for me? I have reserved you a little section from around 0:40 to 1:20. We could even have a different person do it every week! No, I don’t care how white you are.

Love, Cats


I like the tune but the song is kinda scratchy with loud sounds, not sure if it’s an issue to everyone else. You could probably do some mastering blastering majingabobbing to make the songs high volumes a bit lower or something. I don’t know man, I ain’t no one of dem music makin’ tunemachines bitch.

Also I thought it being different every time would be cool, something to look forward to.
