Really enjoyed your discussion on music. I never fully committed to any group, namely because I always seemed to flitter between metal, post-punk, goth, early industrial etc. (it was amazing hearing you rattle off a few favourites, we have VERY similar tastes!). I don't look the part, but goddamn I'll nerd out about extreme metal and the Batcave scene. I had no idea you were into that sort of thing.

Quick production note: I recognised after the fact that Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space was released on Steam in 2013, but was first launched back in 2005. That makes a whole lot more chronological sense!

Oops, maybe I misspoke. Sorry about that. I believe you can also find Weird Worlds on mobile. It's still super charming, imo.

Uh, thanks for listening, everyone! Super weird to have a podcast episode about yourself. I'm honored that anyone would find my funny old life interesting.

Nope, my bad. Made an incorrect statement in the outro.

These interviews are such a treasure.
Also, NIN live concert in Prague was the most intense musical experience I have ever had.
Question, that goth shop with kink stuff and cloth in Camden with the CDs underground....was that the Cyberdog shop or something completely different? I stayed at a friend's house around Belsize Park when visiting London and we happen to go to Camden and Primrose hill etc. God I loved that part of London. Wanna go back.

I sortof see myself as a ''high functionning goth'' hehe

You could never tell that's what I listen to. I can really relate to that feeling of not belonging to a scene despite being obsessed by its music

Ah, Cyberdog. I was a big fan once upon a time. As it happens this wasn't the place I was thinking of (the record store was definitely on Camden High Street), but you reminded me of when Cyberdog's store used to stretch through what is now Stables Market. The low brickwork arches in near darkness was such a cool place to wander around! It's still nice nowadays but not quite as fringe. I agree with you, I need to go back too!

Here is the most important question that wasn't asked :). What brand of peanut butter?
