Man this new mbmbam live show may as well take place on another planet entirely.

I was reading about RPG design and I came across something called the Czege Principle: "creating your own adversity and its resolution is boring." That basically sums up why The Stolen Century was dull as hell. The players didn't have any concrete problems to run up against, and it was way less interesting than anything else in the show.

Iím nearing the end of my backwards trawl and, for one thing, itís jarring to go from a modern episode to one from aught-twelve.

And second, the origin of their hatred of Jugglers and their love of Fushigi Balls stems from the same bit. And immediately predates their discovery of the phrase ďAm I good?Ē

I've officially started listening to the podcast. I ended up picking the halfway point for now, so I started at 190 and am working my way slowly forward. I've been listening to highlight clips on youtube so I don't feel like I'm missing a lot of really good stuff from early on, but hey. One of these days I may double back and do the rest, who knows.

I think my favorite goof to date is "Pepum's Nasty Gum"

Also I just now found out there was a game called 100ft Robot Golf and the brothers recorded the announcer tracks (including in-game art depictions of them). WHAT

I think it's pretty early. I encountered it near the end of episode 200, which was a clip show featuring eps 31-45. Youtube says it was episode 39.

For me nothing will be funnier than Griffin pretending to be a sad old man in order to rob a bank (from the episode also featuring the very good and titular "Coyotes Ate Our Dad").

I just finished relistening to that episode, and both bits still had me laughing so hard my face wound up hurting.

Coyotes was the episode where the show finally clicked for me so it holds a special place in my heart.

Lin-Manuel Miranda played a version of himself on Curb Your Enthusiasm last night. I was thinking about how funny it is that someone famous enough to play himself on that show was buddies with the McElroys. Then he dropped a Monster Factory reference in a conversation ("toe to tip") and it was even better.

Cripes, I just listened to MBMBAM #133 and this bit broke me:



"Tim Curry couldn't entice a child into an ice cream truck driven by a Pokemon."

Up until the most recent episode, I didnít realize how much Jimmy Buffet sounds like their dad. Except much more relaxed.

This informs a lot about the brothers.

I cannot get on board with "Tim Curry is not charming" as the premise of a joke.

Tim Curry could unquestionably get a child into an ice cream truck driven by a pokemon.

I don't want to meet the person who can watch Hunt for Red October and not want to give Tim Curry's character a giant hug. That dude can charm.
