Our first podcast of 2010! We start out with a bit of talk about what we plan on doing for the entire year, and then move right into our 24 themed trivia in which the punishment is for us to put our fingers into a bug zapper. It was pretty brutal, thankfully yours truly only had to do it once while everyone else… well, you’ll see. We then move onto some thoughts about the current season of 24, speculate over Lost (mainly last Tuesday’s premier, so that convo is a little out of date now) and hope into a large helping of Nerd News and wrap it up with the normal Whore Daddy/Clutch section. Enjoy!
It has been a long time coming, but here is the download version of Shamoozal Radio #29 from earlier this month. To be honest it’s been a while since the podcast so I don’t remember the full details of everything we went over, but I do know there is more about our plans for the rest of the year, like our upcoming NES Marathon and my trip to MAG Fest, along with a brand new game from Jim in which we need to figure out which of his Trenton stories is the false one. There is a large Nerd News segment along with our Whore Daddies and Clutches. Buckle up and cherish this one because this is our final podcast for the 2009!
This was a really fun bit from well over two years ago. I guess Jim was feeling really inspired by G4’s Ninja Warrior and decided to come up with his own take on it that we could play during the show. The idea was that we each had a minute to run through a series of “challenges” including stuff like inputting the Konami code and chugging an entire Red Bull. For those that are fans of the show, this is where the infamous “Solidicry” song came from, after Steve failed to even make it past the first step of the challenge. For those that watch Ninja Warrior, he was basically like that guy that shows up with the Octopuses around his neck and falls into the first water trap on his first step. Another funny thing I caught this time through is how Frank refers to the Contra guys as “Bill & Rizer” and “Lance & Bean” on two different occasions… when its really just Bill Rizer and Lance Bean. I laughed. Also, I noticed at some point we reffer to the people on the “vent” server, this was obviously way before we started streaming these live on UStream, which kind of sucks, because this would have been fun to watch.
Maybe we can do it again sometime with some new challenges.
Once in a while we produce some pure gold during our monthly podcasts, so I figured I’d start going through some of the episodes and picking out some of our better moments and uploading them to YouTube. I thought Jim’s story from SRP #26 back in June would be a pretty good starting point. It’s a short clip, but it’s pretty funny to listen to. I was going to put up Slap Chop Trivia first, but the game is longer than a half hour! YouTube only allows for 10 minute clips, and I’m not sure cutting it up into 4 parts would be worth it. I don’t know, we’ll see. In the meantime, whenever I upload one of these, I’ll probably post them right here on the front page.
