Useless Drivel – Lightning in a Metal Gear Bottle

Useless Drivel Murder DogNow, we aren’t the best podcast on the block. There are those out there that have these things called “structure” and “organization” and others that engage in “fact-checking” and “professionalism” but, hey, that’s just not our style. What we do have is an unflinching dedication to (almost) always release an episode every week, come Hell, high-water, or babies. So, join your hosts this week as they discuss hipsters, the homeless, murder-dogs, and a little thing we like to call Gateway 2015! It’s good times the size of Jaegers vs. Kaijus, so sync up in the drift, cause it’s about to get rough on a brand new episode of Useless Drivel – A Podcast Without a Point!

Episode 34 – Gaming Peripherals

If you’re old like us, you remember the good old days of video gaming.  One console, one controller, and usually no more than two buttons and some sort of directional device… and a gun!  These days, video gaming is moving in a more active and immersive direction and it seems like the manufacturers can’t get enough of gadgets.  Join us this week as we discuss the changing direction of how we enjoy our video games, from the early days of Atari to the fading promise of Virtual Reality.  Holster your Light Zapper, strap on your Nunchuku, and clear the room of small pets, children and breakable valuables because it’s about to action packed in here as we talk video gaming peripherals on a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage.

First Official “Prometheus” Clip now Online

If you are excited for Ridley Scott’s Prometheus (as you should be), then you will definitely want to check out the new official clip to hit the internet today.

While it’s not too action packed, chances are this is the last bit of normalcy the crew of the Prometheus is going to have before the all undoubtedly die horribly gruesome deaths… just a hunch.

Prometheus hits theaters June 8th, so if this clip isn’t enough to satisfy your nerd-lust, pick up some copies of the original Alien films to hold you over until then!

Episode 12 – New Year Nostalgia

The New Year is finally upon us.  2011 brought some good times for us here at Monkey in the Cage, namely the birth of our wicked cool podcast (that’s for any fans we may have in Boston).  But, as awesome as 2011 was, 2012 is going to be a thousand times better.  This year is going to be a geeks dream year come true – everything from video games and movies to conventions and podcasts.  Like everyone else, we look forward to the new year and what it brings, but at the same time, we can’t help but take a nostalgic trip down memory lane.

This week, as everyone is looking forward, we’re looking back.  Join us as we talk about the a crap load of things from our childhood and adolescence that we both love an miss.  Be it cereals, tv shows, cartoons, or professional wrestling, nothing is off-limits as we babble on and on and commit the cardinal sin of dating ourselves and feeling old.  Let your ears take a listen and your mind reminisce on the things that helped make us the geeks we are!
