Episode 63: Super Mature Chats With Joe Bush

I have nothing clever for this episode’s post (or for any episode’s post) so let’s just cut the crap and get right to it. Joe Bush from camp joins us as we once again remind the world that Doba goes off to camp soon! But only for a little bit this year. We think. We hope. Hey, if we’re lucky maybe he’ll stay there forever and we’ll be rid of him for the rest of eternity. That’d be nice.

This week’s big topics include Rugrats in Paris, Tim Hecker, Les Discrets, Mount Eerie, Mercies, P.O.S., Jock Jams, Royksopp, Tiger Trap, Serena-Maneesh, Moby, Of Montreal, DJ Shadow, Xiu Xiu, Lightning Seeds, the UMvC3 OST, Show Me Your News!, Hey Arnold!, Community, The Simpsons, Giant Bomb’s Game Room, Tim & Eric Awesome Show: Great Job!, Brutalmoose, Shmvoo, The Lonely Goomba, the Adventures of TinTin, Hannibal, Breaking Bad, Bates Motel, Louis CK’s Oh My God, Ghost Dad, Secret of Nimh, Drake & Josh, Zaxxon 3D, Michael Jordon: Chaos in the Windy City, Action Fighter, Teen Agent, Space Jam, The Walking Dead, Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, Final Fantasy, Project M, The World Ends With You, Zoo Tycoon, Kingdom Hearts II, Devil May Cry, Minecraft, Fire Emblem: Awakening, and Dress To Play: Cute Witches.

EASTER EGG(S): SEN WHAT DID YOU DO TO ME

Episode 51: [UNSPECIFIED DETROIT EVENT]

We just got back from our vacation in Detroit, Michigan for the second year in a row! What a place for a vacation, eh? We were there once again for [UNSPECIFIED DETROIT EVENT], and this year the amount of SMYN Network peoples joining us DOUBLED. Of course [UNSPECIFIED DETROIT EVENT] went about how you’d expect, nobody recognized us or came to our panel AGAIN (wait we had a panel when was this) because we totally had one (we most certainly did not), so it was obviously a total bummer!

Except it wasn’t! [UNSPECIFIED DETROIT EVENT] was a blast once again! We can probably get a bit of a post about our experience somewhere but we got to meet people like Doug Walker, Linkara, TeamFourStar, and LittleKuriboh, we got to see Steam Powered Giraffe live in concert, and even attended panels lead by two of our fellow Network shows (Show Me Your News! and WTF Pokemon!?)! Not to mention the best part being sharing the best hotel room ever with Darkurai and Peofun1, both of whom have probably been on the show more than any other guests in RTM history. So we figured, let’s have them on again!

This week’s big topics include Youmacon (of course), mash-ups, Steam Powered Giraffe, more Youmacon, Once Upon A Time, Pom Poko, Only Yesterday, Alfred Hitchcock, Nightmare on Elm Street, Red VS Blue, Wreck-It Ralph, more Youmacon, Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, Professor Layton & The Miracle Mask, Mount & Blade, more Youmacon, Halo 4, and even more god damned Youmacon.

WE LIKED YOUMACON, OKAY?

GUEST APPEARANCES: Darkurai (of Darkurai’s Happy Let’s Play Fun Time) and Peofun1

ENDING SONG: Jordan ~ Buckethead

Oh, and on our way home from Detroit Ben and I started thinking about some other cons we might be able to attend in coming years! We’re honestly looking for ones we wouldn’t have to fly out to, we’d prefer one that would give us an average length road trip.

So if you want RTM to come to your local convention (protip: you don’t) then help us out and shoot us some suggestions. We’d love to hear them.

It was over the week between episodes 9 and 10 that our hosts met the most wonderful man in the world. Greyhound, just know that you will forever be in our hearts.
