The Recommendation Challenge

The only thing that feels as good as listening to music, is sharing music with your loved ones. When's the last time you got super stoked on some new music you found and knew you HAD to share it with your friends. That's basically the reason we created this show. That and to pass the time of living in the center of the earth.

The Songwriting Challenge

In the immortal words of Chance the Rapper, we back. We've solved the transmission issues we were having last week and can resume our broadcast! This week the boys have to create a mashup with songs that they like from a pure 'songwriting' standpoint. That real lyricist shit you know? That Conor Oberst jam.

The Rhythm Games Challenge

Rhythm games are a very important piece of every growing child's development. If it weren't for DDR, would any of us even know how to dance at the club? If it weren't for Guitar Hero, would anyone on the entire planet know how to play guitar? No. Because guitars didn't even exist until a time traveler brought Guitar Hero back to the neolithic period. Oops, uh, please disregard that previously classified information.

Look there's nothing wrong with popular music. There's nothing wrong with things that have a wide appeal. It just so happens that the more you obsess about an art form, the further down the rabbit hole you go. This means that the 3 of us have a really hard time knowing what the average person listens to, even if we listen to it as well. We're broken. This is our attempt at healing. Please be kind to us.

36. The Inside Out Challenge

Have we already been doing this for 7 thousand months? Seems like just yesterday our clones were activated to start this research. Though I guess from our point of view maybe it was yesterday? Who can keep track really. Anyway, with 35 challenges already in the bag it was just a matter of time before we'd start revisiting some of them, and that's what this challenge is all about. Taking a mashup we made in the past, and inverting the parts used. Featuring clips from: Gorillaz - Clint Eastwood The Protomen - Light Up the Night Radiohead - Creep Depeche Mode - Enjoy the Silence Depeche Mode - Personal Jesus

We've been making music too good for too long. If we're going to accomplish our goal of destroying music forever we need to start exploring the dark corners that we try to ignore. Ian has to make an electro-swing song and Ryan has to make a Country song. Do they succ seed? There's only one way to find out.

34. The Covers Challenge

Let's face it. All ideas have existed before. All knowledge exists in the void and every once in a while a person will rediscover it. I think Plato said that or some shit. I'm not sure how true it is because I'm pretty sure that Plato didn't have an iPhone but I wasn't there so I don't really know. All music has already been made. That's why we took the easy way out by making music with stuff that already exists. But we aren't the only ones.
