Neither Scoops nor F. Nick Bredon lives in San Francisco right now, so I doubt they'd be regulars on Idle Thumbs: Rising or whatever they end up calling it.
Yeah, I was more wondering if that was a new or an old photo. A few times in the last little while on their forums, they've posted something that seems to point to new Thumbs, only for Jake to come in and say it was old.

This is driving me crazy.

Seriously, I'll give those guys money if they start casting pods again. Heck, if it would keep them from leaving every 6 months, I'd pay per episode, even. I need more Thumbs in my life.

Why would they need a kickstarter? Did they throw away their microphones?

Anyway I an excited for more thumbs.

Everyone should try to read the right side of that fake magazine. It's a weird story about Jeff Goldblum. I couldn't make out all of it, but it was pretty cool.

I hope they start making some podcasts soon. Summer is coming and 1 bombcast a week isn't going to cut it for my road trips.

To bribe their employers to let them cast some pods.

The conversation with Bennett Foddy on the newest Conf Grenade was so fascinating. I love that this guy is making and thinking about about videogames.

Video gaaaaaames!

I expect it'll take them a little while to get back into the swing of things, but that was a pretty good first episode back.

I feel like they've spend the progress-cast time warming up and this episode hit every mark. And finally hearing that theme song for the first time after so long was perfect.

Yeah, it was hardly a first episode back in any real sense. Still great for them to really be really back for REAL now, though.

Man, the new episode's rundown of the new Driver makes the game kind of horrifying.

I was already spoiled on the general insanity of Driver San Francisco's narrative (wherein you are Coma Ghost Cop), but I didn't realize that you would be ruining dozens of peoples' lives in every mission. Sometimes as the primary objective!

Oh man, the bit about the Jehovah's Witnesses Convention on today's episode had me in stitches.

You'd think that Dot Gobbler would be two-player only.

God damn, this week's episode is the perfect example of why Idle Thumbs is so fucking fantastic. Not the QuakeCon panel, they put out a normal episode a day or so after they normally would have and its excellent.

Thirty Flights Of Loving, for those who didn't play it through the Idle Thumbs Kickstarter, is now available on Steam for $5. It not only includes a commentary track, but also the entirety of Gravity Bone! (For those of you that did play the game through the Kickstarter, you should already have received these updates.)

There was also a pod that was cast back on the 15th, so surprised there was no discussion on that. Well, um...it was pretty good.

Anyone tune in for the DayZ stream? It was pretty amazing. I'm watching the FTL one now.

And the new site is up and running in full force!
Listened to the "prologue" book club podcast and I really liked it. I think I'm gonna go ahead and read A Sense of and Ending just to see how this plays out. It's a short book, and I've already read Cloud Atlas, so I'll be able to get something out of the first couple of months before deciding to follow along any further.

I read The Sense of an Ending in one sitting because I knew it was the first book. It's really short and pretty easy but rewarding.
