After I complain about my computer mouse woes for 15+ minutes, we finally get down to talking about how annoying it is when people talk about their current level of faith in humanity on the Internet. Then I rapidly tell a super boring story about my personal history with the Legend of Zelda franchise of video games. Yeah, we get into some REAL Dumb Stuff this week. Strap yourself in, kids.
Probably the best episode we’ve ever recorded.
Ep 30 – Faith in Humanity and Nick’s Zelda Story
This past weekend Tzvi heard some youths having a discussion about religion, and it made him get all like
And since we were already getting crotchety about how much we dislike the younger generations, we decided to also complain about how social media is bad and dumb and things were better in the olden days.

The forum where Tzvi and I sometimes hang out is called Zelda Cavern.
Tzvi and I talked for about 4 and a half hours last night. We made sure to record the least interesting hour of it.
We started out talking about flash games and other little-known vidja game titles, which Tzvi and I both share fond memories of. And SOME of us (not naming any names here) were apparently playing those games while we recorded, which is why there’s so many clicking sounds stuck in the recording. Then we tried to talk about Star Trek, but that devolved into a big genre discussion about the philosophical styles of SciFi compared to those of Fantasy. It’s a fun episode. We make a good podcast.

Kilovh blatantly ignores the “Dumb Stuff” mandate of our podcast by forcing LS to talk about music piracy. LS is passionate about his radical views on this subject, which makes it a little scary to talk about in a public space. Kilovh is a cruel taskmaster. Ironically, LS mostly keeps his foot out of his mouth until the second topic: Fallout New Vegas. Somehow this utterly benign topic gets a little out of hand, and LS starts shouting about people who have bad wrong fun. Hyperbole abounds in this episode. It’s a weird listen, but hopefully enjoyable.

Tzvi and I both had uncommon primary school educations. He attended a series of private schools, while I was homeschooled. We talk briefly about our experiences, which derails into general denouncements of the American education system. Then Tzvi talks about some SciFi nonsense where internet comments are replaced with short audio clips. It’s interesting stuff.

Tzvi will be traveling this week, which may prevent us from recording Episode 9 on schedule. But we’ll try to make it happen.
True to his word, Nick tries to talk about something he loves this week by discussing Metal Gear Solid. In retrospect, it may have been more interesting if Tzvi was more familiar with the series. Then, Tzvi discusses how he shamelessly earned second-hand Internet points off of The Gord, and we share our memories of the old Internet classic.
A very mellow episode.
