You think you're mad now, Gaald? Just wait until one of the controllers breaks after only a day of playing!

Oh, many Shubs and Zuuls will know what it is to be roasted by that string of expletives, I can tell you!

"Steel Whores" Ian Dorsch

You guys think you're so f*cking funny.

I made it better.

I thought it was "Steal Whores"?

Now you need to get Jeff Green back on!

I don't know how you can quote Carrie Brownstein and not mention that she was in Sleater-Kinney. Seriously. I award you all no points, and my G-d have mercy on your souls.

I was equally shocked. Also, that article was really snooty.

I seriously want Russ' muse. What kind of drunken, surly, George Carlin-esque muse whispers in your ear "eagle semen?"

Rat Boy still wants to be a prison bitch, I gather.

You ever get into one of those situations where your helpless. There is something you want really badly and it just keeps getting snatched away at the last moment and your helpless to do anything about it?

Like my love life?


Serious note: Awesome show. I miss the Fletcher. *swoon*

Something that's been bothering me... Isn't it (the second song) called the "Podunk Stomp?" I can't help but feel there's some kind of Freudian slight against Podunk's manhood every time I see "PodunkStump."

edited for salad tossage: Great to hear Russ on the 'cast again!

PS: Inara!

I've only *just* had a chance to finish listening to this one (almost 2 hours for a podcast? Too much for my gnat-like attention span). But it was nice to hear Russ again on the podcast. Just like old times.

And as long as we're pointing out spelling errors, shouldn't it be "False Gravity", not "Flase Gravity"?

Agreed. What happened to Escapist Radio? I saw a little memo saying it will be delayed, then... nothing.

Not enough time in the day. The Escapist was keeping me too busy to also do a high-quality podcast on top of everything else. Radio took about two full working days to produce, during which time I could do nothing else. I used to do it on my weekend, after working 40 - 60 hours at a relatively brain dead job. But after working 40 - 60 hours at a job where I actually use my brain, I don't have enough left in the tank to then spend all weekend working on the show.

Plus there's the issue of ownership. The Escapist owns, or at least restricts, all of my game-related output these days. So even if I wanted to do Radio on my own without their affiliation or input, I couldn't.
