Episode 84 – Bringing a Game to Life

props

Gamers want to feel immersed and invested in the games they play and run.  Now, while this responsibility can be shared by Players and GMs alike, it will almost certainly falls on the shoulders of the overburdened GM.  Bringing something unique and memorable to the gaming table – be it a prop, ambiance, or even food – will definitely stay in the forefront of the Players minds, unlike useless details such as “Where are we?” or “What are we supposed to be doing?” or “What was the name of the guy that hired us?”  Join us this week as we welcome our special guest, MITC listener and fellow podcaster JiB of the Happy Jacks RPG community to talk about techniques to help bring a game to life.  Strap on a HazMat suit, clean out your test tubes, and be sure to have a plan as you get ready for an all new episode of Monkey in the Cage!

Episode 74 – TV Character Deaths

Lori Grimes Death Demotivator

It seems like not that long ago, the characters on our favorite TV shows were untouchable.  Sure, most have been far from infallible, some not even remotely likable, but they definitely seemed to be somewhat immortal.  Then, one day, writers go this great idea that killing important characters in dramatic fashion wasn’t just good entertainment, but good story-telling, so the fans could cray all they wanted, because, you know… ratings!  Join us this week as we discuss some (but definitely not all) of the TV show character deaths that have made a lasting impact on us, the viewers.  Grab you box of tissues, play some sad background music, and maybe even get some confetti poppers ready as we talk TV character deaths on a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!

I hate what I’ve become!: The Dorito Taco

Recently Taco Bell decided to do a nationwide rollout of what could only be seen as the fast food version of peanut butter and chocolate. Behold the Doritos Taco!

Dorito Taco Holder

I ventured to my local Taco Bell and sheepishly ordered the Doritos Taco amongst many other items to hide my shame, but the girl behind the counter leveled a disapproving stare at me, knowing that later that evening I would be stuffing myself with this horrid invention.

Dorito Taco

I brought the abomination home with me and tentatively unwrapped it, revealing the neon orange shell inside. With pain in my heart and fear in my stomach I took my first bite of the top of the shell where it was mostly Dorito shell. It tasted vaguely of Doritos. Emboldened by this revelation I dug in to the meat of the taco by taking a bite with meat. It tasted like a normal Taco Bell taco. I originally intended to post a picture of my cheesy powdered fingers, but honestly there was so little powder on my fingers that it didn’t show up on camera.

At the end of the day I would rather pay less for a standard taco. I give the Doritos taco two rusty wagon wheels out of 12 cheesy poofs.
