Denizens of the internetz! It is us, your masters and overlords, here to miseducate and misinform the seething masses of maybe dozens of listeners with our tomfoolery and ineptitude. Bow down before our inadequacies and pay heed to the drivel that your hosts Robert and Matt are about to spout! The uselessness of of conversation will enthrall you and leave you wanting so, so much more. Dedicate your ears and empty your minds, because we’re about to fill them with all sorts of… stuff…
Is this the best summer or what!?! We’ve got superheros, conventions, and even better, GIANT F***ING ROBOTS FIGHTING GIANT F***ING MONSTERS!!! That’s right geeks and geekettes, this week we’re talking awesome! Join us as we discuss the good, the better, and the best of Guillermo Del Toro’s latest tour de force, Pacific Rim! We ain’t got no time or room for haters, so initiate your neural handshakes, touch up those Kaiju tattoos, and get ready to cancel the apocalypse as you listen to a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
NPCs; they are the lifeblood of any adventure, campaign, or gaming world. Sure, the story is created by the actions of the Player Characters, but without NPCs, who would the heroes turn to for help, sell all their (sometimes ill-gotten) treasures off too, or shiv prison-style in a back-alley for some easy XP? Join us this week as we jump back almost two decades to discuss some of the memorable NPCs – allies, adversaries, and otherwise – from our epic AD&D 2nd Edition campaign! Ready your fantasy cellphones, lock down that split-personality disorder, and for the sake of your family take out a life insurance policy as you prepare for an all new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
Being a geek is an investment in time, money, and most importantly interest. But what happens when the time isn’t available or the interest isn’t there? With so many things to keep up on, past and present, it can often be difficult to stay on top of what-is-what and to be as informed and exposed as possible. Join us this week as we reveal some of our personal shortcomings in geekdom. Whether it’s geek-centric things we flat out don’t enjoy or haven’t had the pleasure of getting our hands on, we all come clean on our holes in the geek game. Don’t be hatin’, but get your hate-mail ready (and remember to send it to Matt) after this week’s episode of Monkey in the Cage.
Talk about well worth the wait! This past weekend, Joss Whedon’s The Avengers finally opened coast to coast and BLOW’D IT UP!!! Not only did it SMASH box office records (to the tune of $207 million on it’s opening weekend), it also damn near melted Matt’s eyeballs and brain because it was so epic (and because he watched it without his glasses). Join us this week as we have a spoiler-ific discussion about the movie and all of its superhero glory. Step away from the heavy bags, put Mjölnir on the shelf, have Jarvis hold all of you calls, and definitely DO NOT GET ANGRY as you listen to this weeks all new episode of Monkey in the Cage. AVENGERS ASSEMBLE!!!!
With the meteoric success of The Walking Dead and the subsequent weekly zombie vacuum left on Sunday nights, we here at the podcast (and most everyone else out there in pop-culture land) can’t seem to get enough of the rotting, cannibalistic dead come to f*ck up the humdrum routine of society. Joining us this week are two very special guests – actor/writer and voice of Red Dead Redemption’s Bill Williamson, Steve J. Palmer as well as comic artist Guy LeMay, creator of Z-Blade XX, Zombie Headhunter, and The Entity Knights – as we discuss zombie movies, games, and the genre in general. Stock up on supplies, shine up your bullets, and pay attention because you’re going to want to change your zombie apocalypse plan after listening to this week’s episode of Monkey in the Cage!
