NWA hell yeah! XD And that intro flashback. And the Beastie Boys were the shizzle, first Meat Canyon mention (I'm starting to see a certain continuity with these episodes) and that dog cartoon I remember so vividly. Wasn't missing the suggestions in this one - think I actually saw them all.
Will should be an occasionally recurring guest on this thing... if he isn't. Great topics. Relatable musical interests. Incredible name memory. Adventure Time though. Gotta get into that sometime. Regarding the live action thing on NG: If y'all haven't seen Hardcore Gamer: worth a watch. The medium still does OK! Just has to be done right. JamesLee does a lot of hybrid stuff too. I think NG distancing itself from regular video content and building a niche otherwise is a good call - it makes for higher standards too. So easy to just film everything. Not so easy to animate it. Or to mix regular video with more unconventional means. Plus: hosting costs. YT still hasn't managed to turn a profit. There's just too much.
Finally, Belated Congrats on the 69th fan littlbox! :D Even if it seems that number is just impossible to keep. Alas, the dark downsides of famousness...
