"Why do you have 88 (Heil Hitler) on your face?"
Oh, yeah, me dad died in 88.
"That sounds right. We'll completely ignore all the other far-right number codes and the fact that you have HOMEGROWN tattooed over your top lip"

Apparently Sky HISTORY completely missed the fact that one of their Woodworking competition contestants was covered in GODDAMN NAZI TATTOOS.

Covid-19 

Just got a covid app warning, but then it said that I should be fine, so I guess somebody I was near tested positive but I wasn't near them for long enough.

Shadow The Hedgehog - I am... All of Me
I think the game itself gets an unfairly bad rep (it's better than Heroes), but I am... All of Me is one of Crush 40's weakest tracks. This sort of industrial nu metal isn't their strongest style, and as much as it tries one of their now signature belter choruses, it doesn't quite work; the chorus feels both out of place here and quite muted compared to their more triumphant work in earlier games.

Sega Superstars
I wasn't expecting to hear the organs carried over into a game that wasn't on the GBA, but hey, I guess anything is possible on the Playstation EyeToy. The guitar work is nice, but this is all pretty average stuff; it feels like an attempt to capture the Sega sound, but with no defining characteristics about the game to anchor it to. Also, that choir intro is BAFFLING.

Well this fanfare jingle is all over the place! The organs are back, but I have no idea what they're supposed to be doing. It's triumpant, I guess.

Sonic X (Europe)
Too many languages to translate cool theme tunes for just means people singing 'Sonic X' repeatedly over a backing track. This feels like a placeholder.

Sonic X (US) - Gotta Go Fast
Oh boy, Pop Punk. It's similarly quick and good at setting the mood, but I think this might be a little too cheesy even for Sonic? It also has the terrible lyrics problem seen back at SatAM.

Sonic X (Japan) - Sonic Drive
Wait, is that an actual session drummer? Because that dude is rocking out. Regardless, If you wanted to combine the early 2000s Sonic music style with shonen anime theme in 2003, you could do a hell of a lot worse. This is fast, catchy, and succinctly sets the mood for the show.

Sonic Heroes - Sonic Heroes
This is the point where the soundtracks officially become undeniably better than the games. Sonic Heroes' theme is another Crush 40 belter. Sure, it's not as good as Live and Learn, but it's still a good balance of fun cheese, earworm, and a 'sing it out loud' chorus. It suffers from a weak middle 8, though.

Sonic Battle
That is honestly a pretty good attempt at buttrock, although the guitar wail sample doesn't quite stretch as far as they want it to. Still, this is the most impressive and coherent use of the GBA's sound chip we've gotten so far. Also, it's neat that it combines the main series' buttrock guitars with the Advance series' organ music.
