Benjamin Franklin once said that the only things certain in life are death and taxes. If that’s the case, then Gary Gygax’s response must have been “I thought it was criticals and fumbles?” Time marches on. Nations rise and fall. All we are is dust in the wind… but who cares! Join us this week as we discuss the reasons we believe gaming to be the true fountain of youth. From tabletop to video games, nothing does better at keeping us young at heart like a good session of gaming. Sit back in your easy chair, adjust those trifocals, and give Ponce de León the old two finger salute as you get ready to get young with a whole new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
One of the best parts of a new year, besides failing miserably at your resolutions by the second week of January, is the start of a whole new convention season. Whether you are rabidly anticipating the “Geek Mecca” that is San Diego Comic-Con or like to keep it low-key and hit up your local favorites, we here at the Podcast love conventions, large and small. From awesome (to awesomely bad) cosplay to getting mad-dogged by The Incredible Hulk himself, Lou Ferrigno, hitting the convention circuit and reporting back to our listeners is definitely a top priority for the podcast monkeys this year.
Join us this week as we welcome our most seasoned Con-goer and close personal friend, The David from the Greenlandic Powerpop band The Maxies, as we recollect some highlights from convention trips past. Grab your daily passes and stack up your swag while we dive into this week’s look at the convention experience. It’s both chaotic and fun, just like the convention floor!
