AoY Podcast #122 – The Dark Side Christmas Special (Star Wars: The Last Jedi Review)

Also known as: “What planet grows grey tomato’s… THAT ARE ROCKS!?”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 4:27:09)

Happy New Year!!! 2018 will be our year and savior for humanity until such time when social media says its the worst year ever (like the end of every year on Twitter). So what better way to reign in the new year with our hosts ranting about Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

(0:00 – 2:40:15) The Dark Side Review! Star Wars: The Last Jedi – This film seems to be equally split between those who love and hate this film, just like the balance of the force. Dustin, Jonn and guest Vekou (who shows up about 45 minutes in) state their views on the film. As you can expect, spoilers are afoot in great detail. This lets us compare the Star Wars films to the Fast and Furious film series, how Jonn dog spoke up for animal rights on this film, how Disney can royally screw up a beloved science fiction series, and much more!

(2:40:15 – 4:27:09) Christmas Closing Remarks – This was recorded the next night with Jonn and Dustin keeping the mics warm on a post Christmas night, and more sound proof for Dustin since he recorded in his “sound proof” safe space closet (making his mic sound louder in the process). The remarks include bathroom gender rules, Dustin panels at Big Fandom Greenville, more Star Wars talk, what we got for Christmas, upcoming AnimEigo Kickstarters, video game talk, James Bond talk, Dustin Christmas movies he saw this year, 80’s cartoon themes and the goofyness of Voltron, Chris Chan and Ghost talk, the fall of Bitcoin and so much more!


Music Selection:

OP – The theme of Doom by the Disney Star Wars Machine…

ED 1 – This is the real Dark Side Review…

ED 2 – Our theme song for Disney Star Wars (a.k.a. I’m glad we said it all…)

AoYPodcast #120 – ThanksGAMEing Special

Also known as: “Title: Marilyn Manson mourned on Twitter, confused him with dead Mass Murderer Charles, what a headline!”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 01:51:35)

So for this years Thanksgiving special, we’ll talk about something we haven’t focused on in years, and that is an entire episode dedicated to video games. So join Dustin, Jonn and Josh to talk about Vidjer Gamez!

(0:00 – 01:26:10) Thanksgaming Special – This is a discussion mostly of what the podcast has been playing in our spare times when were not doing podcasts. Jonn and Josh talk extensively about the Nintendo Switch, Mario Odyssey and Zelda Breath of the Wild. Josh mentions the new Sonic Forces and Mania games, and Dustin goes into Gundam Versus, Final Fantasy X, Friday the 13th: The Game, and Windjammers. Of course other topics arise like Star Wars games, EA being the worst lottery company in the world (followed by how long it would take to unlock their crap), Final Fantasy collections that might not come out, and some banter about how Dustin never talked about the con he went to nor anything about the SNES Classic.

(01:26:10 – 1:51:35) Closing Remarks: Chris Chan spreads his Hyperdimensional Waifutunia autism across the state of Virgina for a week, The death of Charles “NotMarilyn” Manson and Della Reese, Political Sexual Misconduct talk, and much more!

Music Selection:

OP – Nintendo should smell its doom, it’s (never) gonna go 3rd party so soon…

ED – I just found whatever Marilyn Manson song to go at the end of this…

Man, did EA eff up or what…

AoY Podcast #105 – Our One Rogue Star Wars Christmas Special



Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 3:02:44)

What better way to end out 2016 but to travel back long ago, in a galaxy far far away. This time Dustin and Jonn are joined by previous guests Daft and Vekou to talk about Star Wars: Rogue One.

(0:00 – 1:07:30) Review – Star Wars: Rogue One Review – The council of nerds have all gathered to talk about the recent Star Wars film, which seems to be divided in the fandom of who likes and dislikes this movie. All hosts mention the movies strengths and weaknesses, as well as talk about other Star Wars material. This of course gets us talking about story lines in video games, nerd conversations on Clerks movie levels, and much more.

(1:07:30 – 3:02:44) Post-Christmas Holiday Closing Remarks – A lot has happened over the past month, and the hosts have something to say about it. Aside from talking about what we all got for Christmas, we give RIP shout outs to Alan Thicke, Carrie Fisher and George Michael passings. We also mention convention talk from Daft’s North East Comic Con review and seeing the Hanna Barbera exhibit, where as Dustin went to experience what happens when a high school puts together a comic con in the middle of nowhere. There is also discussion of a book about Tommy Wiseau, talk of terrible and cool animation industry people, Dustin desire to meet Jerry Beck and Fred Patton, abandoned Flinstone parks, the recent ramblings of Peter Fay, who to ban from our chat, and much more.

Music Selection:

OP – I’m sure people wish 2016 can be blown up with the Death Star already…

AoY Podcast #82 – 3rd Anniversary Star Wars Christmas Special!!


Also known as: “Well you know what Jonn, I saw Space Jam when I was a kid, I think that’s really good too!”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 1:51:20)

2015 is over, and now we move onto the year of 2016. 2015 was a pretty fun year from the podcast group, especially when Star Wars: The Force Awakens comes out to end it all. So this years podcast special is about our hosts giving their take on the recent flick from a galaxy far away galaxy…

(0:00 – 1:11:15 ) Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens Review – In previous podcast episodes, Dustin and Jonn seemed a bit skeptical to how this new Star Wars film will turn out. With both parties seeing the film along with past podcast guest Daft, the three sit down and break down the film to their understanding. So yes, that means we will spoil this film, so go see it before you hear this podcast. They also talk about the Star Wars series in general, how people don’t know the origins of Good Burger, what it was like to see Star Wars now than the prequel films, fan theories to the latest Star Wars film, our thoughts on the Iron Man movies, Dustin thoughts on the upcoming Ghost in the Shell film, and much more.

(1:11:15 – 1:51:20 ) Yuletide Closing Remarks – All three hosts talk about what they did and got for Christmas, along with Daft experience with seeing the Hateful Eight, The last Hunger Games movie, how Right Stuf hooked us up, Bennett the Sage Bubblegum Crisis review rant, Dustin using Twitch, the Nickelodeon Slam Block, and much more.

Music Selection:

OP – It was bound to happen that we talked about Star Wars…

ED – We hope 2016 is a SUPER DUPER YEAR!!!

This show has:

Dustin never knew about this till James Rolfe had to talk about it…



Damn…. that is ugly…

AoY Podcast #78 – Halloween Special 2015 (Amon: Apocalypse of Devilman Review)


Also known as: “Hey Adrian, you suck at translations buddy!”
and also: “Weeaboo the new N word…”

Download Episode HERE! (Total Time: 1:09:47)

We figure this would be prompt and timely to release our Halloween special on the same day than for it to be later than that. As of this episode release, both host’s Dustin and Jonn are at their local conventions and will do a report on those in due time. So in order to keep up with tradition, the crew reviews Amon: Apocalypse of Devilman.

(0:00 – 27:30) Halloween Special – Amon: Apocalypse of Devilman Review: If you couldn’t tell from our spoilers from last years Halloween special (if anyone reading this even knew or listened to it), we keep up with our yearly tradition to bring on more Go Nagai Devilman goodness. We probably thought we were gonna do the Devilman TV series at the beginning of the year, but neither host owns the DVD set from Discotek, so screw it, that didn’t happen either. We pretty much run through this anime to talk about the horrors of post-apocalypse Japan, but Dustin couldn’t say to much because he didn’t want to attract too much attention to himself in his school cafeteria when this recording happened, because both hosts thought it was a great idea to record a podcast in a university cafeteria one Tuesday afternoon, to talk about Devilman of all the anime to mention in a public setting. Needless to say, he didn’t get kicked out for reviewing Devilman. We also mention how we saw this on Youtube from the worst translator on the planet, talking about what our buddy Cloud posted on our chat in the middle of recording, and how you should check out the One Pixel Jump review of Devilman as well.

(27:30 – 1:09:48) Closing Remarks: For some reason, the racist on Twitter wanted to get mad at the new Star Wars film because of their white male insecurities, which led to Jonn and Dustin talking about the Star Wars series in general. This also got them to talk about the HOT OFF THE PRESSES information of Chris Chan still not going to jail, followed by a special issue of Sonichu, our local resident fansubber gets a (TRUE AND HONEST) cease and desist notice from Funimation, our current issues with fansubbers out there, people on MAL get mad over the use of “Weeaboo,” both Jonn and Dustin talking about their Halloween convention plans, as well as Dustin panel rejection and approval issues with Banzaicon during the Halloween weekend. All this and much more in this weeks episode.

Music Selection:

OP – Only on Halloween, is the Devilman our ride and die buddy…

ED – I wish Pioneer still existed to make more anime intro songs…
