The gang talks about Matrix: Resurrections and other stuff we watched over holiday break and also try to decipher what the Square Enix president means when he says blockchain will be a major strategic theme.

Only 2 years of the clone saga? Ben Reilly is the current Spider-Man right now! Don't worry Ship, Peter Parker is no longer head of Parker Industries, he's been broke again for a few years. I know you didn't love the start of this new spider-era. It's not terrible though.

Cheapy,

You are missing out if you don't watch Book of Boba Fett.

Wombat wasn't too hot about first episode. I agree. It was alright.

However, I think episode 2 was the best episode of tv I have seen in a while.

Cheapy,

 

Thanks for recommending the Artful Escape. Although the janky movement controls make some of the otherwise easy "walking" more difficult than it should be, the artwork and story are certainly engaging.

 

I feel a strong "Bill and Ted" vibe, with Lightman as a kind of Rufus.

The most skippable episode in a while.

 

Listening to these three goons bend over backwards to find ways to defend NFTs is pretty appauling, but maybe that's what I should expect from people who think Michael Pachter is a good guy.

 

Wombat is extra smarmy in this episode and Shipwreck continues to downplay and make excuses for corporate greed. The other guy still has played no games.

After the discussion about the woman selling her farts, I was disappointed that cheaply didn’t end the show with “jar of hearts” (say it without a pause between “of” and hearts) with some fart noises sampled in.

Can't comprehend a simple conversation.  Should probably stick to content creators with "Angry" in their names.  1 star.

You and Wombat talking about how digital scarcity is a "cool" idea in any form, NFT or otherwise is ridiculous. Digital scarcity in any form is complete nonsense and you should be ashamed of yourself for even entertaining the idea, Meanwhile, Shipwreck is over there trying everything he can to come up with as many ways NFTs benefit him as possible. 

 

Not sure why you imply someone would have to be angry to be strongly against the idea of NFTs but you're petty enough to think rating people on a forum matters so who knows. Also let's not forget it's people like me that have afforded you the jobless lifestyle you have to begin with. You didn't even code your own website and without the loyal users you'd be back working as your dad's secretary. 

 

P.S. You're a lazy 50 year old that goes to pilates twice a week. You don't need to drink a gallon of water a day.

 

P.S.S. You only started using that 'CASH GRAB" audio clip of that idiot Joe Rogan after RLM used it in their Matrix review so maybe don't act like it's some clever play on your part.

 

Kick rocks, you old boner.
