It looks like I am the progenitor of another failed project as I am officially call it quits on the JumpingOffRoofs podcast. The last podcast I was part of "The Failed Experiment" ended in an equally unspectacular fashion as I completely botched the code on the site and didn't know how to make it all better, but it was on the way out creatively anyway. The Failed Experiment was conceived to be a fun a podcast where a few would get together, crack jokes and share funny stories with friends and JumpingOffRoofs was supposed to be a communal gathering with a rotating cast where in the best of scenarios I wouldn't have to be present on every episode but that dream never came to fruition. So what happened? Well Like that last "P" on OPP, it not quite the simple.
Mass Effect as franchise is the best gaming experience I've ever had. I struggle to think of the time when the first Mass Effect hit shelves and I picked it up as a curiosity rather than the necessity it became. Today I sit contemplative on weather or not I need to ever play another video game as I live and breath.
With the looming arrival of Mass Effect 3 a month away I’m starting to get the shakes. It has been 4 years and a bit of change since my addiction...
So this podcast started out with the idea that Derek wanted to talk about the second Virginia Tech shooting except no one had really read up on it ...including him. Gerald gives the hard sell for his brother's book, Koontown Killing Kaper. The appeal of Childish Gambino and the merit of Lupe Fiasco which some how leads to talk of Alex Jones and the banks. Gerald has an angry rant about the n-word & race.
This week starts out slow with a little higher learning discussion (Penn State / Syracuse) and some how gets to the fashion of youngsters. Derrick counts town his top 5 white women and Gerald squirms when he gets the third degree.
Its a full house this week as Gerald, John, Dennis and Neno (Derek) all gather together in this episode of JumpingOffRoofs. On the table is the Penn State debacle (too soon?)
This week its all about New York Comic Con. We saw a lot of crap at the show including Bat Girl. Bat Girl was awesome.
This week Dennis goes home again, Gerald asks the only question that matters about Amanda Knox, there is a little on the Fall TV premieres, oh and Meth. There may be some references to Meth. Its a hell of a drug.
Back again. Fingers crossed we will get back to a regular schedule. Gerald here, and this week is a bit of a rambling fun and interesting mess. Not really sure what happened in the episode as I slowly lost my voice over the cast. I know at the end there I talked a bit about Mass Effect. The rest is a mixture of heated money debating, messing with the super religious, and some old school gaming systems. Listen. Enjoy.
I have watched a good amount of television in my time on this earth and I feel that people have missed out on some truly great shows as they're too set in their ways of the procedural cop drama, medical procedural, or lowest common denominator sitcom to step outside of their comfort zone. I thought I'd put together something for the masses to read and perhaps if I am lucky get someone out there who will look at what I put on this list and find a way to put it in front of there eyeballs and see if they like it. All I ask is that you give something out of your normal wheelhouse a try.
