Another Friday, another podcast to start your weekend off wrong! Join your hosts Matt and Robert, as they are here to pump you up for the weekend by letting you down in ways you can’t even imagine. From depressingly feel-good movies to the saddest news ever to rock the world, they’re bringing to you slow and awkward, chock full of poor vocabulary and half-baked thoughts. So, prepare for some painfully easy (or is it easily painful?) listening, because it’s a brand new episode of Useless Drivel – A Podcast Without a Point.
David Bowie, Colonel Sanders, and the Captain of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders all take a ride on The Love Boat… and then it got weird. No, it’s not a joke, it’s the very first Actual Play Podcast from MITC Productions! When the guys who created the Spirit of ’77 game first asked us to review their work, all it took was one look at the pre-gen characters to know that this would be epic! So strap on your life vest, secure your portholes, and be sure to swab the poop deck as you cast off to adventure with Gemini, Colonel Colgrove, and Sammy Summers in part one of Spirit of ’77 – Cruise Ship of the Damned!
HOLY CRAP! We did it! We made it to 100 episodes without missing a beat! That rates up there with great historical geek events like the birth of Gary Gygax, the 1st issue of Batman, and the sale of the first Nintendo combined! Okay, not really, but all things considered, it’s a pretty damn big accomplishment for us here at To-Ag Studios. Join us this week as we keep on keeping on talking about the geeky stuff we’ve been up to as well as reflecting on what 100 episodes has meant to us. So, make some new friends, watch out for raging teenage hormones, and definitely be careful who you trust (around the gaming table) as you prepare for a milestone episode of Monkey in the Cage!
Are you exhausted? Because we sure are! 2012 turned out be a geek’s best friend and it didn’t matter what your nerdgasm of choice was, either! Be it movies, gaming, television, comics, or whatever else, 2012 surely did deliver… and there are absolutely no signs that 2013 is going to do any less. Hell, it’s probably going to do more! Join us this week as we gather around the mics and discuss what “got our geek” the most in the past year. Prioritize your superheroes, stock up on convention passes, and be sure to try out a bit of the meatloaf as you settle in for a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
Earlier this year, many of us participated in, or were at least aware of, a Kickstarter event to help place the history of one of our favorite hobbies on film. I was so excited by the prospect I ended up being the third person to put money to the project and certainly spent a fair amount of time and energy promoting it in my own small way. The reason for my fervor had a lot to do with my love for documentary film, and that love of documentary film can be traced back to one solitary yearly event, the True\False Film Festival.
Every now and then you’ve got some time to kill with your buddies. For me I like to have small, easily accessible, (and better yet quick!) games at the ready for such an occasion. Not to mention that rare perfect moment when your plane gets delayed and you find yourself talking with a few gamers who recognized your RPG book and suddenly an opportunity to play something has arisen! For me the game I often have at hand is Chaos and Alchemy. If you haven’t heard of it don’t feel too bad because its new on the gaming scene, but after I give you the lowdown I encourage you to check this perfect time killer out and you’ll be turning lead into gold in no time!
