Join us in our detailed recreation of the living room from Family Ties for Episode 6! The gunt is in it’s homestretch, so what better time to pause your novel for a detailed description of the plot of Blade Runner. We’ll also play Black Tiger, but not the version you’re familiar with! (Get this: it’s slightly different.)
We’ll also test Mike’s ability to spot fake Rush lyrics, and listen to another EXCLUSIVE excerpt of a leaked scene from the Ready Player One movie!
This episode covers chapters 25 thru 29 of Ready Player One. For next week, read thru Chapter 33, page 326 in our edition.
This is a book club, so get in touch! We’re on twitter and facebook, our personal twitters are @clastowka and @michaeljnelson or send us an email firstname.lastname@example.org

So, is it really an Easter Egg if everyone knows about it?
Rush is awesome!
As a huge fan of Rush, I’m sorry you had to get your first impression of them through such a terrible book. If you want a great Rush experience, here are some songs I would suggest you listen to.
1. Working Man
2. Fly by Night
3. Bastille Day
5. Something for Nothing
7. Closer to the Heart
8. The Trees
9. The Spirit of Radio
11. Tom Sawyer
12. Red Barchetta
16. New World Man
17. Distant Early Warning
18. Red Sector A
19. The Big Money
20. Time Stand Still
Sorry I couldn’t go past 1987. This is just something to get you guys started.
“…respectfully read all the programmers’ names…”
I remember how in the ’90s a lot of Japanese game developers were credited with really weird nicknames, like “Bigisland” or “Papa.” My favorite was “Milky Eiko,” who composed the music for Splatterhouse 2 and 3. I assume Eiko’s male co-workers came up with her nickname because she probably had big, uh, musical ambitions. So respectful.
