In 1982, both the movie and video game industries were doing just fine. Then someone had the bright idea of making an Atari 2600 game based on the movie E.T., and then things went downhill fast. The game was a flop, countless unsold E.T. cartridges were allegedly buried in a New Mexico landfill, people stopped buying Atari products, and soon movies and video games both faded into obscurity -- thus allowing podcasting to eventually become the biggest branch of the entertainment industry. On the FINAL BROADCAST of NOSE HAIR LINT GLAND, we'll look into what really happened to those E.T. cartridges (hint: it involves a New Mexico landfill), and why people like Karen Carpenter, Bob-Marc, and Sherilyn Connelly don't talk about video games anymore (hint: it's because they're very old).

NOSE HAIR LINT GLAND: To pause play, allow E.T. to fall into a well.
