Comments

Wow, oldmanscene is your older brother? News to me.

Good ep! I especially liked the part where you guys made the joke.

[edit] - My ending submission:
"I'm Russ and this is Shawn, reminding you, that there's no I in GWJ. Think about it. Wait, sh*t, am I fired?"
Either that, OR!
"Epsiode? Done."

My ending submission is from Aliens when Hudson says: "That's it man, game over man, game over!" Either say that or play it, that'd make a nice ending.

Is it just me, or is most of the volume balanced on the left speaker/side?

Hehe, nevermind, mini-jack wasn't in all the way. Carry on....

Unless I'm a complete idiot (which is entirely probable), the "Save As" option isn't working; I just end up with a 3kb file; is it broke, or do I need to do something else? It's worked for all previous episodes.

Worked for me just now.

Another good show in the bag.

Oh, and don't worry about the closet thing, Certis; my daughter is the same way.

At least if Edwin dozes off this time, the Morgan Webb tease ought to wake him right up.

Addendum:

Certis wrote:

It's just Feng Shui...it's not me being a puss...it's just an energy-in-the-room thing

No, it's just you being a spiritual and obsessive/compulsive puss. Any other takers?

Addendum 2:

For the end thingy, how about Russ or Shawn yelling "GAME OVER!" like Raul Julia in the Van Damme Street Fighter movie? Yeah, that's the ticket.

Addendum 3:

Or, how about a clip of the two of them yelling, "Oh no you didn't!" and "Oh yeah I did!"

Fletcher, why don't you use some of your star power and get us an interview with Ms. Webb? Just a fun thought. Then we'll get more hits on the site from people looking for sexy pictures :).

Hey I've been lurking around enjoying the site for months but I thought I'd join and throw in my two cents.

I found a couple of good quotes that are some of my favorites that you could end the show with.

Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted time. - Bertrand Russell

or

We don't stop playing because we grow old... we grow old because we stop playing. --George Bernard Shaw

Anyhow, I love the show and the site. Especially the outtakes at the end.

Another catchphrase could be, "... and that's your weekly dose of disturbing visual imagery... and games"

Damn you all. You had to throw in the theme from "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly" around the 15 minute mark, didn't you? Now I have to piss off my wife by going on another Clint Eastwood western kick. Way to spawn marital disharmony, man.

As for the show ending, I'm afraid that I don't have anything terribly clever to offer. Perhaps, however, you could riff on the concept that many of us listen to the show instead of doing the work that should be classifying us as "Gamers With Jobs." Maybe something like, "That's the show for the week, and now it is probably time for you to get back to work."

I can't believe that you guys are still doing this weekly. Nice work. When does Fletcher sleep?

Oh right, during Civ 4 games.

For an ending, how about "This was Gamers With Jobs Radio, we now return you to your basements. Game on." Perfect mix of cheesiness, stereotyping and closure.

Damn you all. You had to throw in the theme from "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly" around the 15 minute mark, didn't you?

Is that was that was? I was gonna guess one of the themes from Outlaws by LucasArts.

For the record my closet door is open all night every night. Maybe Certis is keeping his closed, because he doesn't want something coming out of the closet. Like, perhaps, his sexuality.

Oh yeah, and my ending submission...

"I'm Russ, that was Shawn, and this was Gamers with Jobs Radio, putting the not-so-average bit of gaming news into your cubicle."

Get a podcasting client and let it do all that work for you! That's the whole point of podcasts.

Recommend some so we know which ones to get.

"I'm Russ that was (insert co-host name here) and this was Gamers With Jobs Radio, corrupting your soul one podcast at a time."

"I'm Russ that was (insert co-host name here) and this was Gamers With Jobs Radio, may your gaming be pleasent and your hookers virus free."

Those are just a couple of ideas, I will post more when they come to me. Of course everything before the comma can be changed to suit the closer but everything after the comma is what I think would work.

"I'm Russ and that was Shawn, and this has been Gamers With Jobs Radio, breaking the soul-crushing tedium of your work day just a little bit."

"I'm Russ and that was Shawn, and this has been Gamers With Jobs Radio. Now get back to work, you lazy bastards!"

"I'm Russ and that was Shawn, and this has been Gamers With Jobs Radio. I spent like 10 hours editing this f*cking thing."

"I'm Russ, that was Shawn, and this was Gamers With Jobs Radio. Edwin, wake the f*ck up before you hit that tree!"

"Soy Russ, ése era Shawn, y éste era Gamers Con Trabajos Radia, enviando nuestro amor a todo el Mexuals hacia fuera allí." [Translation: I'm Russ, that was Shawn, and this was Gamers With Jobs Radio, sending our love to all the Mexuals out there.]

"I'm Russ, that was Shawn, and this was Gamers With Jobs Radio. And help control the geek population: please have them spayed or neutered."

I giggled a little when you were talking about Gun and you started "The Ecstasy of Gold" in the background.

Mostly because The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly is so much better a movie than Gun is a game that I found the comparison funny

Anywho, good show as usual. I always get a few laughs out of the cut material you slap onto the end of the show. Good times!

Oh, the prize is too perfect! All of my creative thoughts have been replaced by images of Fletcher the Fireman dancing in my living room! Damn!

How about, "I'm Russ, and this is Shawn, and this has been Gamers with Jobs Radio, take us out Podunk." (fade in theme music)

Simple yet uncomplicated.

Or "...you know who we are, and we know where you live". Too scary?

"...we're playing ALL the games, so you don't have tooooooo" (gotta use a good echo effect with that one)

By the way, another great show guys, I'm so glad you're sticking with it and it just keeps coming up roses. I do look forward to Tuesdays.

Oh, I think Aimee Mann would suggest, "...and this has been Gamers with Jobs Radio, 'Til Tuesday"

WHen you get GWJ video, can it end with Bart telling Lisa 'You can actually pinpoint the second when his heart rips in half' and then have an image of Demo's head on top of Ralph's body?

Cheers.

One shouldn't presume.

Thought of another one along the same lines as the first one I posted.

"I'm Russ that was (insert co-host name here) and this was Gamers With Jobs Radio, making the baby Jesus cry one podcast at a time."

ICE CUBE, SUCK MY EYEBALL OUT.

I think Ms. Webb probably hates her fame. She's like every girl in every anime ever, with a million geeks lusting over her.

This'll be a great once we get vis-o-radio. Or a GWJ TV show, either one.

Yeah, I'm the good-looking, intelligent one and he's the one with all the talent. Combined we'd make one hell of a celebrity!

Where's that teleporter when you need it? We could be the Brundle Brothers!

Well for anyone that uses iTunes for their MP3 collection, that's the obvious choice.

Otherwise, iPodderX for Windows or Mac machines. Definitely.

In Linux, I'm using Amarok's built-in support, which isn't very robust but does the job OK.
