    Jeff Q&A

    I find myself somewhat frustrated with the advertising from time to time, though I realize that it's a vital part of funding Earwolf, and thus is something that I'm more than willing to put up with. That said, is it at all practical to run a Kickstarter or something to fund Earwolf without advertising, for some period of time? The more I think about that the dumber it sounds (it would probably just be a good way to jeopardize your relationship with the advertisers), so I guess I'm just asking how thoroughly dumb that idea is...

    Skype D&D Nerd Poker Group

    I might also be interested depending on how it works out and if there is still a need for more people. I've just started playing thanks in large part to this podcast. (I have 3.5 stuff thusfar)

    Episode 104 — Hardwickipedia

    Like that one random guy, I also hated Chris Hardwick for a long time, until I realized that I had no real reason to hate him. Then I listened to him on a couple of different podcasts, and realized that I enjoy his sense of humor. The Skyrim refference made me very happy.

    Episode 180 — Friends Without Words

    It seems like 'resign' might not be too high-falootin' a word for a game that prizes high-falootin' words. Context. Maybe too much for Draw Something or Angry Birds or something, but a word game should maybe have some license to be excessively verbose...

    Episode 59 — Human Energy

    They've already released the Bible Part Three; The Quran. It came out about 500 or so years after the New Testament. I think the Book of Mormon falls into the same realm of bible sequels, but it's hard to pin down what edition it is because even though it came out after the Quran, it totally ignores the previously established cannon. Anyway, they've already released a bunch of Bible Sequels, and you're going to have to go a bit farther than 3 if you don't want to step on previous releases.

    How can we improve the Earwolf.com forums?

    Now that I'm able to navigate directly to my profile from anywhere in the forums, I'd like to be able to navigate directly to my account from anywhere in the greater site as a whole. Because I always want more.

    Episode 17 — Immortality

    Hey, eventually we'll figure out how to copy a personality into an invincible Terminator shell, and we'll all live forever as super-robots.

    Episode 23 — Weapons

    I love how you keep asking the Pysicist how he would go about killing everyone. By the way, Robert Ike (fizzicist), I notice that all the elements at the bottom of the periodic table are all radioactive all the time, and they're at the bottom of the table because they're larger (have more parts in a corospondingly greater volume) than the elements above them. So are they radioactive because the valance shells are placed far enough from the nucleus that the attractive force of the protons is no longer strong enough to hold the rapidly revolving electrons in orbit? Or am I not thinking about this right?
  9. I just listened to TL's first Earwolf episode (with Matt Besser!), and between that and the passing of time, I'm less mad now. I still don't think think the best show won, but I'm ready to admit that it's a good show. And y'all know that it's all about what I think.

    Episode 88 — Vanity Plates! Incest!

    Kudos to Besser for logically assesing sibling incest. Not many people have the guts to speak against illogical but deeply entrenched cultural taboos like that. (I'd suggest that if they do some screening to makes sure the DNA doesn't get fucked up, they could have kids, too) TL was not my favorite pick during the Challenge, but if you can delve into serious issues like that while keeping it entertaining, I'll certianly keep listening.

    Episode 61 — A Tale of Two Griffins

    Now I'm no fan of Justin Beiber, but I didn't know that abrasive gossip was a favored pastime in Sklarbro country. I would have figured the calming shores as a more live-and-let-live kind of place. I love the show, but really. Don't hate.
  13. When I heard it mentioned that LDDC let their guests overshadow them 'like the Bob and Dan cast did when they got eliminated', I started having fear flashbacks. The shadow of doubt really established itself in my mind every time Scott seemed sort of reticent to note that LDDC's submission was "a little bit funnier". Nevertheless, I held out hope until the bitter end. Frankly, Matt Besser became my favorite person in the world when he voted for LDDC. Ah well. It was not meant to be. I will argue that The Little Dumb Dumb Club seems to me to be more marketable, even beyond the fact that I find it funnier. In my opinion, Australian accents will trump married couple banter as a marketable novelty ever time. Of course, I don't know anything about marketing, so there's that. What it comes down to for me is that Totally Laime is just really not for me. I am way more interested in something that is really funny, even with occasional lulls, than something that is reliably mildly entertaining. I also am not really feeling the adorability vibe. But to quote the great Scott Aukerman, "Art is for the people who likes it." So I don my fire-proof teeshirt, and bid a fond farewell to season one of the Earwolf challenge. Whatever else I might want to say about the desicions, I was on the edge of my seat all the way.

    Books

    If you're going to talk about Vonnegut, Slaughter House 5 is a gimmie mention, I know, but it IS classic. Personally, "Mother Night" is MY favorite Vonnegut. It has a guy in a blue jumpsuit wearing a cowboy hat riding a Daschund and holding a Nazi pennant while shouting into a bullhorn. And that's just the cover illustration. I just finished Heinlein's "Time Enough for Love", and that one's quite the thought-provoker. Not much of a thrill-ride for a Sceince Fiction peice, but it's solidly interesting all the way through. For more commercial reading that still feels kinda smart, I'd recommend Steven King's "Dark Tower" series. You'll either love it, hate it, or have some other opinion. You could also read the Harry Potter series while imagining how much more entertaining it would be with guns instead of wands in all the fight scenes. Same thing goes for the movies, actually.
