ASCII and Ye Shall Receive: Uptown Girl

Let’s push our ASCII-animation-spewing computer to its limits and find out if it can handle something quite a bit longer than a TV theme song, shall we?

If you’re not already well acquainted with the original video, could you actually tell what was going on? Or was it all dots?

Kasatochi’s chiptune cover of “Uptown Girl” is from the album Analog Sunset, which is available as a free download here.

ASCII and Ye Shall Receive: Pinky and the Brain

What’s the safest way to keep the Brain from taking over the world? Leave him with Pinky as his only backup… or reduce him to alphanumeric characters!

What will they think of next? Tune in next week…

ASCII and Ye Shall Receive: The Invisible Man

The last time anyone saw Dr. David Westin, he was being broken down into alphanumeric characters which then disappeared into thin air!

If you have any clues to his whereabouts, contact Pop Culture Retrorama immediately.

ASCII and Ye Shall Receive: The Christmas Special

Christmas is coming and Kasatochi has wrapped up a package that’s a bit larger than the usual TV theme song. It’s a chiptune cover of Wizzard’s seasonal classic “I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day” complete with an ASCII animation of the video!

Happy holidays from everyone at theLogBook.com and Pop Culture Retrorama!

Kasatochi’s chiptune cover of “I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day” is from the holiday album Presents Get, which is available as a free download (like the rest of Kasatochi’s releases) here.

ASCII and Ye Shall Receive: Batman

Meanwhile, back at the Batcave, Batman’s Clearly Labeled Supercomputer has broken his show’s opening titles down into alphanumeric code!

Which TV theme will be the next to get the ASCII treatment? Tune into Pop Culture Retrorama this time next week.

ASCII and Ye Shall Receive: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

The Ninja Turtles and their classic opening theme are back…and they’ve been reduced to alphanumeric characters!

What did you think? Are you going to try alphanumeric characters as toppings on your next pizza?

ASCII and Ye Shall Receive: Cheers

Kick back and order another drink as we bring you this digital reimagining of the Cheers theme.

What do you think of the latest ASCII-fied classic TV theme? Too much deviation from the Norm…or right over the Cliff?

ASCII and Ye Shall Receive: Barney Miller

It’s not every day that you get animated ASCII art of TV’s Abe Vigoda as TV’s Fish, complete with a chiptune cover of that bassline, and yet here we are.

Let it never be said that Pop Culture Retrorama doesn’t get funky when the need arises.

ASCII and Ye Shall Receive: X-Men

It seems somewhat appropriate that the show open from the 1990s animated X-Men series has itself mutated into a new form – animated ASCII art with chiptunes!

Be back next week as yet another classic TV theme gets mutated (but hopefully not mutilated)!

ASCII and Ye Shall Receive: Law & Order

In our latest feature, there are two equal branches: a chiptune cover of the Law & Order theme music, and animated ASCII art of the opening titles.

What’s your verdict on this cover of the Law & Order show open?
