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.
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.
We are back! Full house on our first time back in a while with Gerald, Dennis, Derek and John. Oh this one goes all over the place starting with the end of an overly specific conversation about Rashida Jones. Also covered is the Save By The Bell parody video for Final Destination 5, Grand Theft Auto IV, Power Rangers and because of some people who can't use their ears properly we end up talking about whore houses.
This week we basically go on about Transformers Dark of the Moon. Dispute the fact that we talk about the latest movie we try to keep it spoiler free, and we basically succeed. We even touch upon the original series a bit. And in true JumpingOffRoofs fashion we also a whole lot of crap.
In the first 5 minute we go from Dennis' disinterest to the awkward relations of Bridget the Midget, Hayden Panettiere with her man friend (who is over 6 foot) and hoops Vs. Shaq and then into starfish digestion. How we get there is half the fun.
