It’s a new week and we’re back at our same old shenanigans. It’s back to the same old awkward conversations and misrepresentation of facts that you’ve come to cringe at and love! From candies good and old to cross-cultural phenomenons, it’s about to get all sorts of random in your ear canals! Sit back, relax, and prepare to be mildly entertained as you tune into a brand new episode of Useless Drivel – A Podcast Without a Point!
For decades, the image of Bilbo, Frodo, Sam, Merry and Pippin were the sole representations of what a hobbit/halfling was. Naturally, this characterization became the standard for the original run of Dungeons & Dragons canon. From the player character race and art to the wealth of literature (R.A. Salvatore’s Regis in particular), the traditional, simple, furry-footed eating machine gamers had grown to love remained the standard. The early nineties saw a slight shift in the characterization, but it was in the year 2000 that gamers saw one of the greatest shifts in demi-human representations, courtesy of D&D 3rd Edition. The world survived the Y2K scare, but forever after, Hobbits and Halflings were no longer synonymous.
So, we totally are not talking about the upcoming J.J. Abrams Star Trek: Into Darkness film (yet), but we made you look. What we are talking about is whatever we damn well please, so if that means confusing you with a completely unrelated post pic, then BAM SUCKA! You just got “uncaged” all up in your face (and a little in your hair). Join us this week as we discuss everything from gaming and movies to random internet news and whatever else comes to mind. Holster those phasers, disarm the photon torpedoes, and for the love of the gods, Hollywood, admit that Benedict Cumberbatch is Khan already! It’s a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
