It’s Misinformation Friday here on the internetz! Another week, another episode, and the guys are all over the place with this one. Join your hosts Matt and Robert this week as they discuss all manner of horrible movies, questionable video game decisions, comic book tropes, unearthly long character-gen and a whole bunch of other things that no one would really pay attention to. Sit back and relax, and definitely watch your back as you embark on another journey of failed fact checks and mindless rambling, because it’s a whole new episode of Useless Drivel – A Podcast Without a Point!
Useless Drivel has braved another gaming convention and lived to tell the tale! Three times a year, the guys visit their local gaming convention in order to cram in as much gaming as possible over the course of a few days. While some cons are definitely better than others, this one was hands down the best! Join your hosts Matt and Robert this week as they recount their various RPG adventures during Gamex 2015. From epic heroism and awesome storytelling to double crosses and idiotic Kobolds, this con had it all. Sit back and relax, and keep an ear to the background noise for cultural enlightenment, it’s a brand new episode of Useless Drivel – A Podcast Without a Point!
This is the week of E3, and while both your hosts would love to be there, they failed to organize and get their act together in order to try to get in the show. Now, while this in and of itself should be no surprise, they’ve at least been able to carve out a chunk of time to talk about the awesome things they missed, as well and their other weekly nonsense. Join your hosts Robert and Matt as they embark on a journey full of mediocrity, curiosity, and mildly offensive judgement. It wouldn’t be a show if someone wasn’t alienated! Somewhat special, poorly refined, and absolutely free, it’s another episode of Useless Drivel – A Podcast Without a Point!
A segment where Kevin Smith goes on and on about a subject he seemingly takes way too seriously that no one else likely cares about or has given any consideration.
Today’s Issue: The Twilight Saga
With K-Stew and R-Pat’s recent falling out and the final Twilight film coming out this November I thought it time to put fingers to keyboard on a major frustration of mine, The Twilight Saga. This rant is not likely going to be what you think it will, I’m not leaping atop a pedestal to proclaim why I loath Twilight, quite the opposite, I’m here to describe a seething love\hate relationship with the product. You see, I don’t outright hate these books. In fact there are tiny gems of highly intriguing lore peppered throughout the novels that draw me in just long enough for the attention to shift back to the core storyline I had little to no interest in.
Reading these books was highly frustrating for me, many times I had my interest peaked for just enough of a minutia, before ripping me away once again into the masochistic relationship at the story’s core, to keep me on board until the next interesting paragraph or page. In any event, today I’m going to discuss some of the items I wished Stephenie Meyer had spent a little more time on. Hell, she could have easily taken out about 50-60 paragraphs where Bella describes how much she adores Edward to make room. By the way, this may be unnecessary but SPOILERS AHEAD.
