From the moment I saw the Feral the Earthworm / Earthworm Jim episode of the Baby Lion-produced, Adam Protextor-hosted series Rappers Playing Games (RPG), I knew I had to get in on that action. I immediately hit up Protextor, a fellow nerd with deep appreciation for many aspects of pop culture, and pitched an episode where he and myself chop it up over a session of one of my favorite NES games, Rolling Thunder. The ‘cool’ thing about vintage games, however, is that they sometimes fail to work, which put the most minimal of monkeywrenches in the plans. After a quick scouring of Protextor‘s respectable game collection, however, I locked into another old school favorite of mine : the Sega Genesis port of the arcade monster from the late 1980s known as Stryder. We checked it, and everything ran perfectly, so we sat down and had a deeply moving and inspiring conversation about art, creativity, inspirational sources, expression and much more. I am honored to have been a part of Baby Lion‘s official Season One lineup, and I look forward to more of the great content they’ve been putting out.
