The main reason I didn't like Tech TV is they were fake nerds. Spazz instead of basement-dweller. The amount of non-videogame material was staggering with Tech TV. Meanwhile at G4, even the filler shows were things like Starcade, the arcade competition show. They were worlds apart and ruined the reputation of G4+Tech TV. When I saw the thumbnail about the reunion, I saw all the people I hated in one room. Yes, so glad G4 is coming back....with all the guys I never wanted to see again.Cheat was G4. Also, G4 didn't take over. Both were failing and they tried to salvage the loss. Scot Rubin, the original owner of G4, has a podcast describing the whole ordeal if you wish to explore the lore. Comcast had two failing channels and merged them both. They fired almost everybody from the G4 side and tried to mix softcore porn with nerds. To fill the rest of the time slots, they added drama staples like Cheaters, Anime, and Cops. Basically, G4 and Tech TV ceased like how MTV stopped airing music videos. The main problem was lack of availability with cable networks. Both channels would have succeeded in today's market.Anyways, go check out Portal, Arena, Electric Playground, and G4 Icons. They did some really good documentaries about video games.The Bandicoot bit was me maintaining my selection of videogame waifus per recording. I went creepy by accident since CoCo is the younger sister of Crash. I was thinking of Sandy from the first game. I get those mixed up since I'm not a real furry.
(Don't read on air, more medical shit) As an aside, I've had ezcema and psoriasis since birth. A large portion of the recovery is having to deal with a weakened immune system due to both of those problems. I'm still having bouts of nausea, had bronchitis and a tooth infection from cutting my gums. Turns out psoriasis can occur in the mouth and during my recovery, flared up in my mouth, opening small wounds. Not sure how I'm doing, but I've been having less and less major issues for the last week. I'm hoping I'll be 'normal' by February at the rate this seems to be going.
(Last piece to explain why everything is 'randomly' going bad for me.) Sugar numbs the nerves. When I consumed a ton of it through soda, my body was unable to react. Now that I'm in the process of cleaning up, I'm having the 'normal' reactions of psoriasis. I have a severe case of it at the moment, but it has been getting better. I just need to keep doing my voodoo doctor medicine stuff while my body recovers.
My skin sucks too, as stated in DASS 94 a 3 hour trip to the beach was enough for my skin to decide it wanted to murder me lol. I also have eczema but it hasn't bothered me in years, my 2 biggest tips are if you shave with a razor don't cheap out, get a high quality blade so it doesn't irritate your skin, and use a body soap with out any perfume stank in it, like a Dove sensitive skin or Great Value equivalent.If you need your vice of having a burning bubbly sensation in the back of your throat (TWSS) you could try Flavored Seltzer Water, nothing will ever be as good as a soda but you'll adapt. There is a Harris Teeter generic brand of Black Cherry Seltzer Water that is 12 cans for $2.50 and it honestly tastes as good, if not better, than most sugar sodas.A guy like myself who looks like The Blob's 1992 Marvel Masterpiece shouldn't be giving health advice, but everything I said is fact.

Hey, Roy, long time, no see. I'm pretty sure it was ZDTV then Tech TV then G4. I'm thought the ZDTV and TechTV people were legit nerds that were somewhat camera-worthy. They could speak in front of a camera, didn't look like Quasimodo, and they knew what most people were talking about if they called into a show like Screensavers or if they reviewed a product. Veronica Belmont, I think was one of the top reviewers for these segments.I think your personality butts up against show presentation, meaning that charm that people put on in front of a camera. Leo Laporte still runs a tech podcast last I checked, though admittedly I've never listened to it. I don't know what happened to the rest of the crew. I really stopped watching normal TV around 2000-2002 because I'm too cool for school--no I just dloaded anything I wanted to watch and watched it anytime I wanted to do so. This was in the era when MIRC was the best place to get such savory pieces of toasted bread. DCC me this and FSERV me that. So, yeah, DA, I'm not really familiar with the Attack of the Show era, but from what I saw then, I did not like it.Hey, now that I see there's other people than me speaking, does anyone remember that animation showcase program on ZDTV. It had some weird and stuff.
This episode was sponsored by Ms. Fortune of Skullgirls fame. It's so easy to fulfill oral duties when you can detach your head on command.
https://voca.ro/1kjdWf4II71SAudio Comment Bulletpoints-Conan quits late night in general. Thoughts? To be topical, one of my favorite Conan segments was when he introduced Harrison Ford to the Star Wars Holiday Christmas SpecialAnother one of my favorites Conan segments is the opening he did for the 2006 Emmyshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=amln5OxsQlAhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1q_8QQO70Qhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8IyVwEoWw4w-Ellen Page is now Elliot Page? Opinions and how Beyond Two Souls is even weirder with those modeled nipples in the game belonging to a dude now-Saw your love for Streets of Rage 2, specifically naked Blaze from your Genesis Mini review video. Ever get into that Streets of Rage 4? How does it compare to the rest of the Streets of Rage games? -Next gen consoles launched about a month ago already and from what I can tell, it was pretty lackluster. Basically nothing on Xbox Series X with Halo 5 delayed to Fall 2021 and PS5 only has Demon Souls remake and an expansion to the 2018 Spiderman game. These consoles will probably be worth getting next holiday season.-Congrats on 100 Episodes!
Get with the program, Ballz, Ellen Page is now Sophia Lillis.
Ballz, you asked me about stay-at-home orders and how I'm faring: I'm fine. I'm not very social. DA, says I have friends online, but I'm old school internet paranoid. I don't believe any of you would shed a tear if I died in a fire nor stand in the way of a troublemaker if they intended to do me harm. That's family. That's what I believe friends do. It's ok. You barely know me. It's by design. I designed it that way. The last thing I need is for some lurker to show up at my door and steal my goodies or get in on my thrift store action. I guess I'm sad about that. Past years, those finds I did not want--yes, they helped me get stuff in the same transaction that I did want, but they also helped keep the lights on. It's really hard paying for Californians who pump out babies they can't afford, yet those programs persist to enable these people's poor decisions. That's why I have no known associates other than online acquaintances. Imagine me going out for pizza. HA! That's overpaying for a bad meal for which I don't get compensated. Buy food cheap. When deals come along, buy em and figure out how to make rent in this Soviet States of California. Doing this was extremely difficult this year, yet when the videos eventually surface (if they surface), you will see some of the best finds in years. The hackery involved in getting this year done was a feat. Ballz, if you do watch my vids, speak up more. Drop a comment. I live on comments. It's not like YT going to pay me for the work I put in. I keep coming back though.
Considering all the half-naked comic chicks in the thumbs lately, you probably would adore Fathom, whose basically a knockoff of Jim Lee's Psylocke.
I didn't know you were religious, DA. You opened the show with a Christian rock song.BTW, I called in to Screensavers with my real identity. I was on air, live and in the recordings. Find that, BALLZ. Find it! HA HA HAHHAHAHH HA!!!
Did I mention I wanted this on a recent DASS, this has been on my Amazon wish list for awhile but it's uber expensive........still a bit pricey, but thanks for letting me know!
