Prior to episode 46, Trav and Jake discuss their ignorance of cars, the structure of the show, and Jake almost pukes.
People say life is short and I guess on a cosmic level that’s true but when people say it I briefly panic. I think of all the things I intended to do with my life like visit Europe, write a manifesto, or lose enough weight so that my belly doesn’t jiggle uncontrollably when I brush my teeth. There’s also video games I meant to play and big ones too.
Trav and Jake prepare the equipment for their Skype call with The Flock of Nerds. Trav commits to his speech warmups while Jake pipes 80's music into their ears. A lot of bad singing commences prior to the Flock arriving for the show.
We get the giggles and have a hard time reeling ourselves in before brass tax on Episode 44. Jake is tired, Trav is too caffeinated, and the computer isn't working to Jake's liking. What a BEEP-ing mess.
Hi, I’m Simon Belmont and I just went on a crazy ass adventure. Ya know, back in 1688 I was telling some fellas down at the local inn as I was passing through that someone “oughta take a whip and beat ol Dracula right in the fucking mouth with it” and then we all had a toast and a good laugh. Well, here I am three years later to the day almost to tell you I did just that. It was crazy.
With May the 4th earlier this month, and recent teasers for Episode IX, I've had Star Wars on the mind recently. Okay, who'm I kidding. I pretty much have Star Wars on my mind at all times. I've got something with Star Wars on it in pretty much every room of my house, and my office at work.
Coming clean here: I am a poser. I parade around like a big time gamer who grew up playing and beating tons of NES classic titles. In reality though, it didn’t happen that way. My folks got me a Nintendo when I was five years old in Christmas of 1990. I had no idea what it was or what it did. I didn’t even really like it. I much preferred making car noises with my mouth and pushing Matchbox cars around on a rug.
@HokieBriz and @Travplaysgames rap about the perks of having a co-op partner. From playing Gears of War and Left4Dead together online to tag-teaming a solo experience like Alien: Isolation, having a co-op bro for life is everything it's cracked up to be.
Trav shows off the five most expensive and valuable games in his collection and talks about how he came to acquire them.
There are more books than anything. Tons of books. Books have existed for centuries. Ancient texts and scriptures are still being unearthed and there is no way they can all be read in a lifetime no matter how much heroine laced cocaine flavored coffee one consumes, it’s not getting done. Extremist religious entities even burned a good bunch of them for us and THERE ARE STILL SO MANY STUPID BOOKS. The good news is, you wouldn’t want to read them all. Lots of books are garbage. I’d even go as far as saying most books are garbage. You really want to read Dr. Spencer Johnson’s “Who Moved My Cheese?” or Chopra’s “The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success”? Nah, you don’t. I mean the cheese one sounds interesting at least. I like cheese.
