Sneaky Dragon Episode 285

by David Dedrick on May 20, 2017

Ahoy, Sneakers! Welcome to Episode 285 of the hit podcast Sneaky Dragon!

This week, Ian and Dave aren’t sure if they are at the top or bottom of the podcast; remember Walt Disney cartoons; view animated miscegenation; yell snakes on a wedding; meet mean Guys; eat slow and talk fast; enjoy mom’s cooking; sort of enjoy dad’s cooking; smell the roses; don’t want to hear themselves; dig ventriloquism and cringe-worthy magic; fall short of 10,000 hours; draw some comics; be obvious ninjas; offend Girl Guides everywhere; watch inappropriate sitcoms; get offended by Bad News Bears; get disappointed and mad; receive a listener’s story from Reid Jepson; play Beatles Rockband; have a Beatles epiphany; hate the Sixties; and, finally, get bossy about music.

Thanks for listening.

Secret Origins – Reid Jepson

For Reid’s story, I thought it would be wa-a-a-a-ay to obvious to choose Beatle songs, so I have made my usual selection of random songs that vaguely have something to do with the story:

Birthday Morning by The Association: Sure, I could have chosen “Birthday”, but, no, I went for this sweet, somewhat melancholy song that illicits those birthday feeling of anticipation and sadness.

Something Good (Is Going to Happen to Me) by Carla Thomas: That’s right. It’s my birthday and I’ll get all the presents I want to.

Bounce House by Junior Barsity feat. Bounce Veranda and Junior Ventura: That’s right! I have a dumb song called “Bounce House”. Don’t judge me. (When I came across this video on YouTube a few years ago, it was the first time I’d ever heard the phrase “bounce house”.)

The Disappointed by XTC: Reid’s feeling after opening his many, many presents and finding himself with some lameass, junky Beatles Rockband game. Toss!

Younger Generation by The Lovin’ Spoonful: Reid’s dad finds the nopened video game and shakes his head at the younger generation’s casual dismissal of the past.

My Lucky Day by Jason Faulkner: Encouraged by his dad, Reid finally plays Beatles Rockband and makes an amazing discovery that will change his life!

I skipped ahead to hear what you had to say about my story, I agree with Ian, I was a total idiot not to want to play that game haha! I actually had to buy a new copy today cause mine got all scratched up. Lucky me it only cost me 99 cents at my games store!
