This is it! The end of the first year of Digibro’s Media Journal, and the effective end of the current format of the series. Above is a brief podcast with my thoughts on the yearlong project, and below is the final ordered list of all media that I took in this year.

The June stuff is in bold. Note that a great number of the ratings have been changed since the items were originally listed.

Digibro Never Shuts Up 12 – My Top 100 Favorite Songs (and Brandon Tolentino’s)

Surely this makes up for months of silence. In this five-hour epic recorded over two days, Brandon Tolentino and I break down our “top 100 favorite songs” lists, which we’d written months ago, and I’d never finished writing a post about.

This track-by-track breakdown of both lists involves lots of esoteric explanations, random singing, and a truckload of overly obvious passion for music. And if anyone asks—yes, I actually listened to the whole thing back myself.

The lists are below for the sake of keeping up/listening. Note that Brandon’s numbers are reversed for some reason (i.e. his 1. is actually his 100.). Also, as mentioned throughout the podcast, both lists are incomplete and in need of changing, especially Brandon’s because his list was written while he was depressed. These listings do not account for any changes discussed in the podcast.

Drunkcast (DBNSU 11?) for Chrontos

After weeks with no interest from Brandon Tolentino, I forced my brother Victor and my BFF Dang-san to do a podcast with me. It took some doing to get them to calm down, and then Dang-san and I got drunk and spent most of the time replying to Chrontos’ comment about alcohol on my January Media Journal post. It’s gonna be that kind of thing.

What’s in this ep:

0:00 – Drunkcast
28:50 – Victor on Battlestar Galactica
29:38 – Victor and Dang-san’s special Dark Souls run
36:50 – A brief arguement about tumblr, stuff about The FP
38:00 – Wingardium Leviosa (I have no idea why this happened) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FWtO0cfgewY
39:00 – About Con Air and ghostlightning’s comment
41:00 – I get mad about Brandon Tolentino
41:45 – Eating habits
46:30 – Message to Chrontos

Disneycast 3 (Package Films) + Digibro Never Shuts Up Episode 9

Disneycast Episode 2 – Dumbo, Bambi, and Cinderella

Apologies for the lack of a non-Disney podcast this week, if anyone actually cares that there wasn’t one. We had a busy week with our friend coming back from Army training and Brandon wasn’t in the mood for podcasts and stuff.

Also, apologies for him sniffling a bunch. I cut out as much of it as I could, but there’s still some in there.

What’s in this ep:

0:00 – Introduction
2:12 – Dumbo intro/history of Disney up through Dumbo
8:02 – Dumbo shows the future of animated movies
10:22 – Analyzing Dumbo
34:02 – Bambi introduction
35:22 – Analyzing Bambi
(At one point I say that I don’t remember the music of Fantasia because I don’t care about it. I forgot that we also had it turned down and talked over it. Still, I don’t think it’s an entirely incorrect statement.)
58:26 – Cinderella introduction
1:00:00 – Analyzing Cinderella
(I think Brandon and I are on two different pages re: gender roles in this part)
