#233 - Playa Hatin'

Brian gets into nerdcore hip hop with this rap, which features a LOT of internet and video game references. Most are pretty obvious, but I’ll break down a few…

Lines 1 and 5 are references to the internet meme “All your base are belong to us”. Of course.

In lines 3 and 4, Brian is referring to the Commodore 64 computer, and its BASIC command LOAD”*”,8,1. The Commodore 64 was released in 1982, so Brian’s been gaming a long time.

Line 7 refers to the 1985 Atari video game Gauntlet.

In the last line, Brian is referring to the infamous shock website goatse.cx. Read about it here on Wikipedia, but don’t seek it out.
