Intro and Outro Music
Written, mixed, and produced by Nicky Weinbach
Note: While recording this episode, we misspoke a few times. At one point, Nicky mentions “8 bytes”, but he meant to say “8 bits”. (There are actually 8 bits in a byte.) At another point, Max mentions the score to the film Re-Animator and says that its music is synthesized. In fact, the score is a mishmosh of real symphonic and electronic synthesized sounds. Finally, Nicky mistakenly says that Stephen Foster composed “Home On the Range”. The actual composer was Daniel E. Kelley with lyrics by Brewster M. Higley.
