Podcast 055 – What? How is 'podcast' underlined in red?

Seriously. Facebook is so entrenched in our vernacular that the program recognizes it as a word yet typing podcast deeply confuses it. This is why I have no fear of the Matrix ever happening. If a simple blog – blog also isn’t recognized, by the way – gets perplexed by words that have been around for years then there is no conceivable way towers of human batteries are in our future.

It just occurred to me now that every time a person got pregnant, the robots would have to build a new pod for that person to go into or at least have a vacant one for the new person to occupy. Because birthrates outweigh death rates, the robots would have to keep building new ones. I’m sure that would get really aggravating for the robot management. They’d be like, “Man, these humans would be a lot less of a strain on our raw materials and construction if they could just stop fucking.”

Podcast 042 – eVayl Vs. pButcher – Hit and Run

This week I was matched up against Aaron and his Khador.  I was bringing out my freshly painted Legion which I have basically never played before.  Warning: Expect some Gong-Showiness ahead.

We had just completed a Journeyman game and it was getting a bit late to do a 50 pt game so we opted to do a 25 pointer.

Tournament 004 – Nick and Aaron's Experiences

Last weekend I ran a 50 point Steamroller event that Nick and Aaron attended. It was a tonne of fun, and Nick’s already posted his written batreps, but here’s the podcast we recorded shortly afterwards and I FINALLY managed to finish editing!

Podcast 037 – Today’s game made possible in part by Small World with cooperation by Cosmic Encounter

This week was a game against Khador and Skorne. I only took a bunch of pictures and I wasn’t recording the play-by-play. Marc told me to and I didn’t. *shrugging* I don’t know what you want me to say. You come into my house, ask me politely to record the game for the podcast, I agree then refrain from doing it because the game starts going badly and I’m to blame? No. Not on my watch. This is entirely Marc’s fault. He clearly said beforehand “we’ll play the games and whichever one is better, we’ll use.” This was witnessed by three other people and two cats. I had the veteran experience to see that my game was going badly and therefore gave up, allowing Marc to move ahead into the winners circle of games-being-played-that-night-to-use-on-the-next-podcast.

Tournament Report – Marc’s Results at Black Knight Games

On Saturday I had the pleasure of driving into Hamilton (my old stomping grounds… I was born in Hamilton, and attended university there at McMaster) to attend a 50 point Steamroller event.

IMAG1569

This was the first event run by the new Press Ganger in town, Brent (the previous Press Ganger, Tim, now has the honour of being one of only 19 Judges worldwide to have passed the gruelling PP Judges Test, and as such is transitioning some of his tournament hosting duties to the next generation of PGs), and it had a solid turnout at 22 contestants!

It’s been awhile since I’ve played a tournament… and this was going to be the first time I’ve touched Harby or eFeora in almost 4 months! To say I was nervous would be a bit of an understatement!
