Episode 66 – Bad Geek Addictions

066 Bad Addictions

A while back, when we recorded Episode 44, we discussed the things we were addicted too at the time, and they were all totally awesome.  However, it got us thinking about some of the not-so-great geek addictions of days gone by, and we realized that we better get these skeletons out of the closet… you know, before they reanimate and attempt to kill us.  Join us this week as we discuss some of our past obsessions that have either blown out bank accounts, crushed our social lives, or just flat out sucked.  So lock up your bank accounts, put away the credit cards, and for the love of the gods, be with the friends you’re with, as you listen to a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!

Episode 60 – How the Internet has Changed Geekdom

The world is getting smaller.  We hear it so much nowadays that the statement has become totally cliché, but it’s the truth.  While the immediately world is getting smaller because we are all inevitably getting fatter, it’s really the internet’s fault… and we couldn’t be happier!  For those geeks out there who remember the pre-modern internet world, it wasn’t always so easy to get your geek on!  Join us this week as we discuss the impact that this new-fangled internet fad (it’s a flash in the pan, trust us) has had on geeks and geekdom at large.  Fire up that 26.6k modem, plug in that AOL free-trial CD you got in the mail, and whatever you do, don’t let anyone pick up that land-line as you sit back and plug-in to a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!*

Episode 56 – Japan, You Crazy!

Japan, Japanese pop-culture, crazy Japan, vending machines

Well, today is election day in the United States.  The day we finally find out how pissed we actually get if our candidate loses, how screwed we are if this proposition passes or that measure fails, and threats to move to Canada start flying faster than mashed potatoes in a cafeteria food-fight.  But, do not despair, for not only do we stop being bombarded with political ads, we here at To-Ag Studios bring you a bolt of crazy awesomeness to brighten your day.  Join us this week as we discuss our fascination with the insanity that is Japanese pop-culture!  Hold on tight to your companions pillows, because it’s about to get  crazier than a vending machine dressed as a tentacled school-girl on this week’s unintentionally (but probably) offensive episode of Monkey in the Cage!
