A Drunken Interview and OffTopical Podcast

I forgot about this video.

This is me and Goatboy from Feast of Blades circa 2011.  Yes, we've consumed a number of adult beverages.  I'm an adult I am.

Video streaming by Ustream

I guess the trick is seeing how far you can get.  I imagine it's like a Tootsie Roll Pop; you'll bite it before you make it to the juicy center.

(I know, that's just bad.)

As an aside, OffTopical Podcast is going strong.  We're about to record Episode 50, so check it out if you've a mind.  Be warned, OffTopical is an explicit podcast.  It uses potty words.  If you don't like the blend of topical conversation and sketch humor...

...you're not alone.  My own sister thinks we crossed a line when a NeoCon shot Kermie the Frog.

And that was way back in Episode 18.  Anyway, it's iTunes keyword OffTopical, and part of the 76th Street Podcast Network.


You've been warned.

For a more hobby-related podcast, check out Forge the Narrative.  I haven't listened, but I intend to.  Okay, I'm going to listen!  These are some great dudes who know their game - give them a listen.

Hi Brent, We've not been in contact for a while and you may not even remember when we were. I've been a observer hobbyist for a while - real life and other such un-important things. Anyway I like the way you roll (that's how you amerericans put it isn't it). You're well liked on the circuit (i have evidence of this from others), you are pretty prolific, have a worthwhile job at which you seem successful, seems like you are in a caring loving and understanding relationship (now), have achieved some pretty impressive tourney results, have character (seem to keep your promises - playing daemons comes to mind, you could've chucked that project pretty quick), you are clever, funny, write very original, always interesting and occasionally insightful articles and you seem happy with yourself to boot. I know this because you don't just write about stuff, you write about you (and stuff).

There is a part of me that would really like to be like you (not my man bits I think I got you licked there, eh, no I didn't mean licked I meant beat, no really! NO! Really!). There is a part of me which wants to beat you at something because your achievements diminish mine in some ways (I was looking for a great shakespeare quote for this but just couldn't - confirms my point) it's not a big part but it's there, there is a part of me which is glad people like you are out there sometimes it's hard to see.

There is also a part of me which feels I know you. But of course I don't and you don't know me. There a part of me that is tempted to get your attention just to get a little bit closer to you for all the reasons in the above paragraph. If that part of me was followed one tactic which I may use is throwing insults. It's easy and you put yourself out there. And hey I get lots of attention from others too. Ironically (as you know better than I Brent, it's your job) such attention is somewhat of compliment, if unwanted.

While I expect none of this was insightful sometimes it's nice to hear other people say stuff you already know. So this troll it's all because of the way you roll - see paragraph one. Anyway for what it is worth Brent I like the way you roll. I would like to roll as well as you. best of luck

PS I was watching you late last night when you were stalking Jawaballs. Tired because of new job indeed! I like your new shirt and glad you have cottoned on to Night vision glasses surprised you didn't use them sooner. I have a great set for the last year which I can see directly into your toilet with at night from the tree across the road. Anyway must dash toodles for now.

Anon: Bite me.

General Smooth: Yes, I remember! I've got a good memory for Bloggers, even if I haven't participated in the conversation as much these past two years. Besides, I always dug your handle.

It's Saturday afternoon and I just got around to checking my comments. It was a really nice surprise to find someone who's taken the time to write something flattering. It is much appreciated, sincerely.

As far as Night Vision, Jawaballs has started making it difficult to spy on him - I had to try something! Weirdly, the tree limb in the back yard crashed on the fence in a storm a few weeks back.

Or did it?

General Smooth said...

there was nothing flattering IMO there I don't think. but anyway...

Yes I know about the tree limb which is why I was so excited when I found the angle on the one away from your house.

(A new favorite!) Anon: I haven’t even bothered playing a game of 6th yet, cause I have read the rules, and actually understand how they interact with units. I know my armies no longer function how they should, and so I need to change them.

Strictly Average: 'cause 6-inches is all you get.

Stalking Jawaballs since 2009.

Jawaballs: "My butt just tightened up."

Brent, preferred 2-to-1 over Not Brent in a recent, scientific poll.

Brent: emptied the Kool Aid and DRINKING YOUR MILKSHAKE with an extra-long straw.

Unicorns don't exist.

Home of the Stormbuster, the Dyson Pattern Storm Raven.

I'm a comment whore and this whore is getting no play.

Not Brent hurts Brent's feelings.

I think, therefore I blog.

"You should stop writing for everyone else and worry about your crappy blog." - Anon.

Not Brent has been spotted lurking around with a green marker.

He's not like a bad guy from a cartoon, all devious but never quite evil, Not Brent is bad beans, man, bad beans.

Dethtron: "Again I feel obliged to remind you that trying to sound smart only works if you are."

MVB: "I am not one to join the unwashed masses of self-titled 40k experts out there distributing advice from their blogs about exactly how your list should be built..."

Shiner Bock on tap: that's how I choose hotels.

Strictly Average: The Home of Hugs and Gropings.

Don't feed the trolls!

MoD: "Welcome to Brent's head."

Competitive is Consistent.

Dethtron: "...you could use that extra time to figure out a way to get your panties unbunched and perform a sandectomy on your vagina."

Dethtron: “When calling someone an idiot, it's generally best to avoid making grammatical mistakes.”

Warboss Stalin: "You know, if it actually WAS funny, maybe I wouldn't mind."

Mike Brandt: "It's not a successful bachelor party if you don't misplace someone".

"The Master Manipulator (every store needs one): "...now, enough stroking."

Kirby: "I don't know about gropings. Seriously, Brent, keep it in the pants, please."

Loquacious: "No matter how hard I tried, I couldn't get Hugs & Gropings or Stalks Jawaballs into Brent's little tribute."

Captain Kellen: "I rate this article a Brent on the Faith Hill to Nancy Pelosi scale!"

Drathmere: "Come for the balls, stay for the Brent? Kind of disturbing, man."

Go no further, lest thee see something thine eyes would fain look past!

Isabelle: "So, thank you for supporting your local and not so local unicorns. A noble gesture like that can show some scared kids out there that they don't have to hide from everyone and it's ok to be who they really are."

There is nothing more interesting than We The People... in all our beautiful, ugly glory!

On Internet Advice: You see, I have an almost religious belief that's it's a huge, colossal waste of time.

...I think I'll call it the Gun Shy Pattern Stormbuster, because after the Internet destroyed my first humble effort, I find I'm a bit worried about the reaction to this one.

Lauby: "Is it left over from that time you thought that you could just complete step one 12 times to meet the mandates of that court order?"

Not Brent: "I guess we'll have to read on and find out. Signed, Not Brent. Especially today."

Cynthia Davis: "I think the scrolling text is from Glen Beck's new book."

Grimaldi: "Spamming certain units creates interesting possibilities but also fatal weaknesses."

Purgatus: "Math can inform decisions. It cannot make decisions."

Thoughts? Comments? Hugs and gropings?

You'd be that much quicker to figure out what I mean when I refer to a Unicorn if I covered it in a rainbow flag.

SinSynn: (To Brent) "Curse you and your insidious influence on the internets..."

Dave G (N++): "You know you're an internet celebrity when your following is more akin to tabloids."

I prefer the term Internet Personality (or IP) myself, seeing as how I coined it.

Lauby: "Your attempt to humanize him as failed. I feel nothing but scorn for his beard - it's like a warcrime or something."

BBF: "I've always thought you are a good player but I finally figured out that you are a great player. It's hard to see sometimes because your personality is engaging, sincere and quite charming - to me that is kind of a rare combination."

'Clearly cheating?' I didn't misspeak: you jumped to conclusions. If you'd like to apologize I'll be happy to send you an autographed picture of my ass.


I thought I was doing alright before I realized I was losing.

Age and treachery beats youth and vigor every time.
