GM4A Records presents B-Type - Sneaks album

I am very excited to announce an album which is a bit of an appetizer, to get you ready for the main course, but this is a great appetizer none the less. Like the kind you order because it looks so delicious, and consider just having the appetizer as a full meal but... I'm getting off track. What I am proud to present is the new demo album Sneaks by my longtime friend and podcasting cohort Stephen "B-Type" Brunton.

Download the album FREE at the official album page

Presenting the finest in Nerdcore rap with punk rock sensibilities and Amiga influenced Britishness. This is Sneaks. As the title implies this is a sneak preview album (if fully released album can be considered secretive in some way). This is no time for semantics though, this is a time to rock. Join MisterB-Type through eight worlds of new and remixed tunes in preparation of his follow up to Snogs.

Letters VS Numbers episode 014a: "Endless Possibilities" and 014b: "Fire Breathing Octopus"

PART A:
You are in for another action packed show! Once again we had to chop this sucker into halves so all the awesome can go down easier! First one on your plate is Letters VS Numbers episode 014a: "Endless Possibilities" This week, not only is Chibi Ma hanging out alongside MisterB and I once again, but we also have a second guest in the form of Shinobi Onibocho from nerdcore duo Krondor Krew! We have ninjas, we have mages, and we have all the music and banter you know and love!

PART B:
We are back with part b, which is simply known as Letters VS Numbers episode 014b: "Fire Breathing Octopus". Why? You just have to listen to find out. Beyond the aforementioned sea creatures we also have Shinobi and Chibi Ma for the second half of course. We also discuss more Final Fantasy, funeral dressers, hookers, and more! Not to mention our ever popular beef section. Who are we beefing with this week? FIND OUT!

Listener Emails
This week we only have one email courtesy of Seameat, and it isn't even very good. Remember to send us emails at lettersvsnumberspodcast AT gmail DOT com so we can read them on air!

Letters VS Numbers episode 013a: "The Lifestream Made Me Do It" and episode 013b: "And Running and Running and Running"

PART A: MisterB is back! I REPEAT, MisterB is back! And to celebrate we have an enormous insane epic podcast if there ever was one. In fact it is so epic that it is two parts long! Part 1 is Letters VS Numbers episode 013a: "The Lifestream Made Me Do It". Not only do we have all the ruckus that is MisterB, but we also have plenty of bonus ruckus brought to us by special guest host Ma (who also writes for Game Music 4 All by the way). I like to think we are in full form and then some with this podcast. It has been far too long and we are glad to be back, I hope you are too!

PART B: We are ready for round 2, better known as Letters VS Numbers episode 013b: "And Running and Running and Running". If you were saddened by the abrupt ending of the last podcast you can take relief that part b of episode 13 is up now! This is the second half of the return of MisterB. Not to mention more shenanigans from Ma and I. The suspense from part a is now at a fevered pitch, and we return you to the podcast with no further interruptions!

Listener Emails
No emails this week because YOU didn't send any! What is up with that? Be sure to send in any emails you have to lettersvsnumberspodcast AT gmail DOT com so we can read them on air!

Letters VS Numbers episode 012: "Science is Mischievous"

The beginning of a new year and we are still doing things the same way, with a late podcast. This one is entitled Letters VS Numbers episode 012: "Science is Mischievous". And it most certainly is! This week we talk about every manner of things, including Street Fighter, caffeine naps, scientific research, and even Christmas seeing how this podcast was recorded last month! It has been a while and we hope this gives you a good LvN fix to kick off the new year!

Also, as stated in the show, check out this footage from Z. of Hipster, Please! of LvN live! youtube.com/watch?v=-BD3x-tP5go Make it go all youtube viral and all that good stuff!

Letters VS Numbers episode 011: "They Were Exclusives at the Time"

It is episode 11! It really truly is. It is entitled Letters VS Numbers episode 011: "They Were Exclusives at the Time" and does have some exclusives! And some things that were exclusives. Also some that were never exclusives.

Anyway, this episode is your basic episode, nothing special here, just good old fashioned LvN Podcasting from your two favorite people who host LvN. Plenty of new music from a ton of fantastic artists. Not to mention bantering about new album releases, upcoming concerts, spitting, and how dreamy AlpineKat is. Sit back and enjoy!

Listener Emails
This week we have only a handful of letters. One from Brian from the sadly defunct 8BitRevenge. As well as actual fan email, from people who aren't artists!

Gamewave Podcast Episode 45, guest hosted by Letters vs Numbers team

Check out Episode 45 of the Gamewave Podcast, guest hosted by Anthony and MisterB of Letter vs Numbers!

From gamewavepodcast.com: "OK, so it's been a little quiet on the Gamewave Podcast front lately, and here's why: Joe has just relocated to Kobe, Japan until next summer as part of a study-year abroad, and it doesn't look like he'll be recording any new episodes any time soon. Fortunately though, the guys over at the Letters vs Numbers podcast recorded an awesome guest host episode a while back, and we've finally got around to uploading it to the feed. Anthony and MisterB play music from Bud Melvin, alex mauer, Chromelodeon and Square Wail amongst others, so download now and get your Gamewave Podcast fix!

And as Anthony mentions, to fill the imminent void in the Gamewave Podcast schedule, if you'd like to record your own guest host episode or submit some relevant content, get in touch at the usual address!"

Letters VS Numbers episode 010: "All About Us"

Welcome to our most legitimate episode yet! Letters VS Numbers episode 010: "All About Us" is that episode. With this show we are in the double digits and to celebrate, this episode is all about the bands and artists MisterB and I have been most influenced by in the VGM and Nerdcore world. We decided to choose the artists who were the first to open up new genres and musical territory for us, and they span pretty much all genres of nerdy music. If we played you in this episode, our hats off to you sir, as we love you and our lives are forever changed because of your musicianship!

Also, you may or may not have noticed (depending on where you are reading this) that we have a redesign and new logo to celebrate this monumental event of ten episodes! If you haven't check out our site at lettersvsnumbers.blogspot.com to check out the awesome new redesign courtesy of Girlz Melon, as well as the amazing new logo thanks to Steffo of My Parent's Favorite Music. Hope you enjoy, and be sure to grab a new banner from the site or myspace, as we should have some up soon!

Listener Emails
This week we had a handful of interesting letters from the likes of Bootyrage Samurai of Stunt Junkies, probably our biggest and possibly craziest emailer. Also more emails from Evamis, and Thugmasta J of Magitek fame. Be sure to send in any emails you have to lettersvsnumberspodcast AT gmail DOT com so we can read them on air, or as mentioned in the podcast, you can record your question and email it to us in MP3 format!

Gamewave Podcast post Chiptune Alliance Tour 2008 video

The Gamewave Podcast has just posted some video footage from the Chiptune Alliance Tour 2008.


Now in its second year, the Chiptune Alliance Tour recently hit the road, bringing some of the world's finest chiptune artists to the attention of UK fans. We filmed some footage on the night and have uploaded some of the best bits to the podcast feed (go to the Episodes page for direct links to the video). The video comes in two parts, but download both to witness live sets from Sabrepulse, Random, Spheres of Chaos, Firebrand Boy and syphus!

Also, be on the lookout for a special guest host episode of the Gamewave Podcast from the team behind the Letters vs Numbers podcast!

And check out this Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Chemical Plant Zone cover by Spheres of Chaos from the same show (this song soon to be featured on GM4A's Sega Genesis/Mega Drive Tribute compilation).

Letters VS Numbers episode 009: "Gathers Momentum Like an Angry Snowball"

Our entire podcasting career is a road fraught with technical difficulties. I apologize for the lateness of our newest podcast, Letters VS Numbers episode 009: "Gathers Momentum Like an Angry Snowball". This episode is extra lengthy to make up for it, so just pretend it is two episodes? This episode covers a ton of ground, trying to make up for lost time since Nerdapalooza. We are a little rusty but still unabashedly entertaining of course!

After two episodes of Nerdapalooza craziness, with guests, partying and what have you, it's back to the regular grind of sitting at home in front of a computer half a world apart and discussing the nerdy nonsense that binds us all together. We also start mad beef, and set a new record for listener emails! So hit play and enjoy this episode. Did you miss us? Because we certainly missed you.

Listener Emails
This week we have a ton of letters from the likes of Sangriaa of Vagina Deep in Podcast, Evamis, Mallory, Whoremoans, Thugmasta J of Magitek, and Bootyrage Samurai of the Stunt Junkies. That is a lot, huh? Be sure to send in any emails you have to lettersvsnumberspodcast AT gmail DOT com so we can read them on air!

Letters VS Numbers episode 008: "Alphabet Vomit Show"

If you thought MisterB was drunk in episode 7, then you are about to witness something else in Letters VS Numbers episode 008: "Alphabet Vomit Show". This episode was recorded the night of July 4th, or was it the morning of July 5th? Well it was after the first night of Nerdapalooza, I'm sure of that! We once again found ourselves at the Emergency Pizza Party house for another epic afterparty.

This time we have even more special guests, more insanity, and of course, more awesome music from Nerdapalooza Southeast artists and more! I don't even know how to describe this show to be honest. It's just a bunch of nerds talking about nonsense, but isn't that always the way with this podcast? Well it's basically that times a hundred this time, as cranking up the amount of nerds has changed the insanity of the podcast exponentially.

Basically, just listen to this one.

(PS. pssst, we also got MC Frontalot on this podcast, oh shit!)

Letters VS Numbers episode 007: "Together Again for the First Time"

Oh man! We haven't gotten a podcast to you in nearly a month. Well I assure you this one more than makes up for it! Enjoy Letters VS Numbers episode 007: "Together Again for the First Time" Which is the first of two Nerdapalooza specials! As you may know, July 4th and 5th saw a huge gathering of nerdcore known as Nerdapalooza Southeast. 300 nerdy music lovers descended on Orlando, Florida to party, rock out, and, of course, act incredibly nerdy.

As you may also know, MisterB is from the UK (you know, the accent and everything). And I reside in California, so hanging out isn't something we oft have the chance to do, BUT, thanks to Nerdapalooza, we hung out for the first time ever, in history! This meant that, come hell or high water, we would do a podcast together. This is the first of two podcasts we actually did, in person. We recorded at the now famed Emergency Pizza Party house, within MC Wreckshin's former closet, now turned recording room. This specific recording took place at the afterparty for the Nerdapalooza Pre-Show thrown by A Comic Shop on 07/03/08.

Since it was an afterparty, people are a little drunk, pretty tired, and very excited for the first day of Nerdapalooza which was less then twelve hours from this recording. We forgo with the regular duties of emails, news, etc. Mostly because we had no real internet access out there, but also to make room for more Nerdapalooza mayhem, and this is a lengthier than normal episode, but there were many monumentous occasions to celebrate, and we hope you indulge us! Enjoy!

Nerdapalooza Pre-Party mini post

We just woke up from the pre-party for Nerdapalooza, which was thrown by our great friends at A Comic Shop last night, and from there we recorded a new episode of the Letters vs Numbers podcast with MisterB IN PERSON at the pre-party after-party from Emergency Pizza Party's home.

If you are anywhere near Orlando and not there, then WHAT THE HELL!? It starts soon, get on that!
