Pack up the Car...you know its time for the 1.5 - 2 Hour ride to the shore. The soundtrack behind us...The CLASH...yes..the ultamite shore album. We have two cds...started out with a cassette in which you just flipped the tape..but from start of the car from the ride to the shore..till the end...its the Clash all the way.
The sound you will hear on this show and a huge part of the shore is by this singer, Bobby Rydell.
Bobby Rydell (born Robert Louis Ridarelli, 26 April 1942, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) is an American professional singer, mainly of rock and roll music. During the early 1960s he was considered a so-called "teen idol".
Rydell released the song "Wildwood Days" during 1963. The song is about the shore town of The Wildwoods in New Jersey. The hit song was so important to the seaside town that a street was named for Rydell there. His hometown of Philadelphia, PA also has a 4 block radius renamed "Bobby Rydell Boulevard" where the entertainer grew up. [ From Wikipedia.org ] ((Purchase MP3 HERE FOR $1!))
Blades of Steel: To keep this on the Hockey Tip...we go Blades of Steel. Now we may not usually play this after Ice Hockey, since we have a week of gaming to do, but we normally make an effort to try to beat the cpu in the tournament with team Minnesota. FLIP THE PASS!
Tecmo Bowl: Another game where we face off against the cpu to take the Chicago "DA Bears!" Bears to the Super Bowl and hopefully can contain Bo Jackson in the later weeks. Here we switch off each half ( 2 Quarters ) to defeat the CPU.
Muppet Adventures - Chaos At the Carnival: WHat! Each down the shore episode we introduce you to this game in which you respond with WHY!?! Well, I owned this game growing up, we started randomly playing down the shore and realized how hard it was..then each year we found ourselves getting farther and farther to where we now get to the final area in which Kermet carries a feather to rescue Miss Piggy. Each year we say we will beat this game...will we finally do it this year???
Yo Noid!: YES! This game kicks ass. We make sure we make an effort to play this game once a year together and so we have a shore tradition. This game is so underated! and hard at the same time.
Mike Tyson's Punch Out!: OK...by this time we have had alot of booze in us and we are ready to fight! We ( with beer balls ) act as Little Mac against the Foe's they send us against until we get to a creature more feared than Jason Vorhees as Mike Tyson. Of course we can get through the minimal fighters..but we end up getting stuck and having to call the one...the only...METS BENNETT..who no matter in what state..sober...drunk..dead...imaginative....will inform us with how to beat whatever fighter we throw at him...AMAZING! [ Its a tradition to call him ]
Skee Ball: A Game on the Boardwalk [ Mostly we use Ed's Funcade ] We roll a Shaved Coconut via Rob editing Wikipedia last year into holes designated with circular points. Sounds Easy...give it a try...
Frog Bog: A GAME OF STRENGTH AND POWER!!! Will takes his Donkey Kong skills of Mario aka Jumpman getting the hammer and knocking a frog on its lilly pad..straight up skill.
Indiana Jones:A pinball game between 50-75 cents that was well worth Will8BitX's money. He kicked ass in this. A very fair pinball game.
Iron Man:This game was to the right of Indiana Jones...took the place of Spider Man in 2009. This game was satisfying as well..gave you good game time and had some nice animation in the top scoreboard.
Ripleys Believe It or Not:This pinball machine was 1 of 3 located in the small arcade right before Mariners Landing. The arcade 2 years ago which was hot as hell actually was tolerable this year. Ripleys pinball from what I remember was ok, not great, not terrible.
Pirates of the Caribbean:This was machine 2 of 3. Will took this game to its limits and by far the best gameplay for the money. Battle of the Kraken!
Monster Bash:This was machine 3 of 3. This game was alot of fun with amazing sounds.
Steel Sterling Segment: The Tick: Book 8: We break open a new chapter of the Tick and bring back an 8BitX favorite, stay tuned for pages 17-18 [ here ]. Woo The Tick!
Also we are sure to have a hillarious Creepy Craigslist as usual, along with some creepy callers and a secret song or to.
