Ep. 318 - Insert Credit Santacular, with Lucy James

@“powderooze”#p145976 Every now and then there does seem to be eps where he's particularly more irritable. This was definitely one where I noticed he was being especially rude

Megaman usually has decent ice physics and level design.

Even the Megaman 8 ice stage that a lot of people complain about isn't too bad.

SLIDE, SLIDE.
JUMP, JUMP.

Finally listened to the first half on my run just now. Cannot believe only one other person has commented on the way Jaffe murdered that intro. Even hit the low notes. Like come on

@“Tom of the Fog”#p145923 I always thought the Scottish dwarves came from Dragonlance (speaking of Mormons!) but, upon further research, it looks like it may have shown up in DnD even earlier—Gygax included Poul Anderson’s Three Hearts and Three Lions in the recommended reading list in the first dungeon masters guide, and apparently Anderson depicted the dwarves as Scottish

People often think of Tolkien as the progenitor but thats not true: unfortunately (given some of the ways he characterized them) Tolkien was always adamant that his Dwarves were based on Semitic languages/cultures. I’ve always thought it was a kind of interesting time loop that Tolkien inspired DnD but, in turn, DnD inspired the lord of the rings movies, so the thing that came afterwards retroactively transformed how a lot of people understand/think about the original that influenced it. Kinda neat

still remember the intro to episode 73...

My time to shine. Brandon, LDS people celebrate Christmas harder than anyone you know. Also, they don‘t believe you are going to Hell. They sorta don’t believe in Hell? If interested, flag down some missionaries, they are all over CA.

I also would get a kick out of hearing Tim's thoughts on "Mormons" that he alluded to.

@“hellomrkearns”#p145856

tired: Mario is saying Italian foods and the classic Italian interjection "mama mia" in his sleep because he is Italian

wired: Mario says "mama mia" after saying spaghetti and ravioli because he is dreaming about his mom feeding him

fired: Mario says "mama mia" after saying spaghetti and ravioli because in his dream he is eating his mom

aka “Weaks Before Christmas”

Who has read Jerusalem?
