Comments

Nice to know the song lives on. Nice job this week, Fletch.

...Interesting. Although I still don't know what is the fascination about Winner Bomb? Well, at least I know what brought it about. Eh"…

Hey, to squeak in before I get slapped again for being all negative and sh*t: I didn't give my permission for my name and likeness to be used in your campaign! My legal representatives are unloading casks of gasoline outside your offices just as we speak.

Seriously, though, Sure Fletcher can talk real slick. Listen, why do you need this slacker Sanjuro at all? You're one cool EmCee, perfectly capable of running the show all by yourself

And that song in the end!! What a moving, wonderful, evocative piece of work!! This is the type of song I would want to have played on my wedding, or anniversary, or a first communion maybe.

I hope next week you guys get around to discuss Spartan, CoD2 and other stuff.

P.S. can you also rap?

OMG The song is comedy gold.

I feel dirty now, though. I think I want my watch icon back.

Scarey to think of people stumbling upon your podcast and never been to the site before. Jack Thompson know about this?

How 'bout you hook it up to some amateur soapmaking, finger->butt action?
Instant hit in prisons all over the globe!!!

Heh, well, if you ever need a lame co-host to rail on, Fletch, feel free to give me a call.

Still, fun as always.

LOL, holy sweet crap.. been a while since i heard the wiener bomb song.. 'bout had tea come out my nose.. LOL

great.. as always

That song ... hilarious ... yet afterwards I feel so dirty.

*shudder*

I love the theme song for the podcast - it makes me smile every time I hear it.

Listening to the rest as I type.

"Wiener bomb!"

I always thought wiener bombing was like teabagging.

The part where I lavished praise on Demiurge for the wonderful remix of Wiener Bomb got lost on the cutting room floor somehow. Twice, as a matter of fact. Don't ask.

Sorry, though. Demi deserves all the credit for the wonderful mixing of said song. Begin the heaping of praise.

Demi got skills!!! Bit in the current context, words "cutting room floor" sound just too frivolously.

Not too shabby Fletch.

Cool hearing the song again too

Just wanted to add my agreement with the "unfunness" of the RockStar games I've tried. As much hype as the GTA:* games had, I just didn't find it entertaining at all going around being a thug.

It had a story line, it had open-ended play, it had voice acting and characters ... but ... I didn't care about them and didn't care to *be* them.

I also admit to having trouble just steering the vehicles around without hitting anything unless I drove in short spurts with corrections, which didn't help if I was being chased, or was trying to chase someone -- but that doesn't negate the lack of fun. I've overcome similar difficulties for other games that I *wanted* to play.

This could be related to my lack of being able to get into playing KotOR as dark; playing light was where my personality fit and where I had fun with the game.

Rockstar games arent about having fun, Fletch.

The games are about f*cking around with sh*t in a sandbox. Some find that fun. Meh.

I've always had problems playing the bad guy as well... it just doesn't connect for me. But I very much enjoyed the last three GTA's. I guess my attitude is that you're playing the best of the bad guys, trying to defeat the "even worse" guys.

I recall the end of my attempt to play GTA:VC was the sequence in which I'm supposed to "take care of" someone by using a chain saw while not getting caught by the police even though it ends up having to take place out in public. That just screams best of the bad guys, no?

Well, uh... you're still a bad guy!

Good show, ole chap! You carried it perfectly on your own.

Man, the Weiner Bomb song never fails to crack me up. Even after being explained half to death. Just teasing ya Fletchie, you know I'm your #1 fan...well, perhaps #2 fan... anyway, I'm right up there on the list of Fletch fans.

I must say Fletcher, I'm convinced you were somehow channeling William Shatner with that song. God job!
