  2. Eric: “We’re in space, these are not humans on earth, this is an alien space thing”
    Tom : “No.”
    Brandon : “No.”
    *Eric Shouting*
    Brandon : “If you’re gonna make excuses, then you gotta shutup about Snowpiercer, that’s all I’m saying”
    Eric : “NO! Fuck that shit! No Snowpiercer is based on Earth in an ice age. These are space people in space where there are actual space-physics and things that go on”

    The ep title should have been: SPACE PEOPLE IN SPACE!

    Erics stupidity shines through.

      Like I said on the podcast, all I wanted was for his skin/eyes to be a bit screwed up when he was on the floor inside the ship AFTER the space scene. WHATEVER. TALKING ANIMALS AND PLANTS! YAY! EVERYONE GO SEE NINJA TURTLES!

        You pass out, but do not die. The point is NOT DYING.

      • You pass out, yes, but you can survive for 2-3 minutes. Plus, guys, listen, advanced technologies in space probably have machines to deal with exposure. They live in space. Jesus Christ. There’s a talking fucking robot raccoon and THIS is where you say, “Oh, no, that’s ridiculous. Come the fuck on.”

          You’re right, it’s very important to remember that people are picking arguments over the most extraneous aspects of stupid comic book movie for babies. Yes, you can survive in space for a short period of time without protective equipment. and yes, in a movie where space monsters and raccoons fight over cosmic rocks, it is the most ridiculous thing for people to focus on and pull them out of the movie experience (which i think speaks volumes to how good of a movie guardians actually was).

          I think the point Brandon (and please correct me if i’m wrong) was that some people might be getting a little over zealous over the dumbest things, while maintaining no consistency between dumb thing.

          to quote the dude, “you’re not wrong, you’re just an asshole”

          speaking of assholes, it’s was fun being one for this brief second. I’m done being an asshole now. You crazy kids shine on like the beautiful diamonds you are

    Hey fellas, I just sunk a shit ton of money so I can come down to D*C this year. Did you guys get your shit together enough to put a panel together? if not, no big deal. I just don’t want to miss out is all.

    • Signs point to yes, but, even if crossed wires put an axe in our panel plans, we’ll be there and ready to mingle. Ha cha cha.

    Glad you guys enjoyed my latest JKProject. To answer I think it was Jen’s question, that is actually not the back of Tom’s head. Its just a color corrected stock photo. Same with Kim Jong-un, except I had to slap his reversed flat-top above a rotund gentleman’s neck rolls.

    I am resisting the impulse to Photoshop the octopus group scene. So instead I’ll show something from a while ago I had not shared with the other listeners until now. Since Brandon mentioned he could cosplay as Bunsen Honeydew, here’s the JKP crew as Muppets (my apologies to your significant others).

    … I liked Lucy. Can’t fully put my finger on why, but I enjoyed the movie. I’ve also liked a ton of Lu Bessons stuff though from Transporter to District B13 and Taken so I guess it makes sense. Pretty darn excited for the panel and I’ll definitely be there.

      In my opinion, the similarity between Lucy and Transcendence is because they are both movies intended to familiarize and accustomize mainstream audiences to principles of Transhumanism. The goal is the progression from implants to the eventual uploading of consciousness to supercomputers (which is poppycock). To reach this end, peer pressure and the addictive, Pavlovian nature of video games will be used to gain the acceptance and eventually desire of the public.

    How do I explain to my co-workers that my burst of laughter in the crowded open plan bank was driven by the mental image of an 8-way Octopus handjob

  10. A quick update to the kickstarter scam I brought up several weeks ago. There is justice in kickstarter it seems, as this new scam has been suspended! This guy is a top notch a-hole for sure! http://gamecrastinate.com/gaming-news/kickstarter-cancels-second-indie-game-project-infamous-airbnb-squatter/
