Because we all need is a good laugh to start things off!

Welcome back to Sound Test Saturday, Sonic netizens! We’ve got quite the music haul to highlight, so take a seat (though you’re likely already doing so), relax, grab some munchies, and ready your ears.

This week, we’ll be taking a look at five Sonic Spinball remixes! And what better way is there to start things off… than with a rearrangement by one of the game’s composers, Howard Drossin?

Let’s boot up the spinball machine and “Return to the Toxic Caves”!

If you love Sonic and laughter, there is no excuse for you not to watch “Sonic Abridged: Episode 1.”

The series aims to take episodes from Sonic X and make them shorter and funnier.  Most importantly, “Sonic Abridged” turns the entire episode on its head with hilarious voice acting, a random array of sound effects, and a bevy of obscure internet references.  If it’s one thing I like more than watching Sonic X, it’s making fun of it.

Highlights include: Cheese, Knuckles’ indifference, and “wouldn’t it be weird if I mutated into a giant, butt-ugly werewolf thing?”

Plus, Psyguy is the main man behind it all, so you know that it’s quality.  Watch it, foo’.
