I did it, guys. I finally went and watched my netflix movie. It was…decidedly less awesome than I thought it would be.


Sound of My Voice – It’s not that Sound of My Voice is a bad movie. That’s not it at all…it’s more that I was expecting something a little creepier and a little headier than what I got in this. At least it was quick.


The Amazing Race – It’s a rare thing to see a leg run as poorly as John and Jessica just did. First team ever to be eliminated while holding an express pass. Just…wow. So funny.

Archer – The coyote episode was great. “Coyote” is also Spanish for coyote. I found the next episode with the hotel a little less funny mostly because the Pam sex with a sandwich joke went on a touch too long.

Community – Still not doing it for me. Not really digging the new direction.

Parks and Recreation – Man do I love how cheekily Parks is able to mock real life politics. It’s not exactly subtle, but it’s still awesome.

Justified – Kind of an off season this year, no? Definitely digging the return of Limehouse.

Glee – Finally watched the episode where they stole Jonathan Coulton’s arrangement of “Baby Got Back”. Not only did they steal it: they sucked at it too. Was way more into the “Tell Him” number, although I would have preferred it with less aggressive choreography.

The Americans – Not sure if beating the hell out of your handler is ok. What was up with the creeper hitchhiking C plot?


Lotta music this week.

First off: Hiatus Kaiyote “Nakamarra”

Who doesn’t love a little blue-eyed soul? These guys seem cool, but I haven’t listened to the rest of their album.

Mashing up Chrono Trigger and Jay-Z is a great idea. 2 Mello’s effort does not disappoint:

aivi & surrashu’s piano mixed with video game music is delightful:

You may remember Eirik Suhrke from his work on Spelunky. His Ridiculous Fishing soundtrack pulls from the same influences, but has a slightly different feel. Good stuff


One Hundred Years of Solitude – I still feel like I’m missing something fundamental about this book with the whole translation thing, but I’m really enjoying this. It’s a beautiful piece of literature.

Video Games

SimCity – My time with it was shorter this week, but just long enough to be swamped with criminals from David’s friends towns.

Mass Effect 2 – Trying to bring my paragon up to ME3 so that I can play the new DLC with him too. I’m recruiting the second wave of guys and doing loyalty missions now.

Spelunky – I got to the City of Gold last week when I wasn’t recording. This week I’m gonna do it on camera.

All good things must come to an end, folks, and this is the end for Brono and his crew. It’s been a fun ride on the 2poch.

Will Ryan and Patrick figure out how to get the sun stone and get the rainbow sword? Will they enter the Black Omen today? Stop asking questions and find out!

Chrono Trigger Endurance Run Ep. 40 [GO/ER]

Bobo vs. the Machine. I’m sure their Ultimate Damage techniques will help them out.

Chrono Trigger Endurance Run Ep. 39 [GO/ER]
Jan 19th, 2012 by Dan

Bobo takes the gang to the factory where he was built/born. Will peace be brokered between man and machine or will Luminaire be the ultimate “peacemaker”.

Chrono Trigger Endurance Run Ep. 38 [GO/ER]

Looks like Brono and the gang have finally figured out how to pacify the ghost of Cyrus!

Chrono Trigger Endurance Run Ep. 37 [GO/ER]

There is no way these guys figure out how to input LARA in time to save Bucca’s mother.

Chrono Trigger Endurance Run Ep. 36 [GO/ER]

Guys…all you have to do is put Barle in your party.

Chrono Trigger Endurance Run Ep. 35 [GO/ER]
Jan 13th, 2012 by Dan

Brono and the gang vs. a T-Rex. Man, I really hope these videos don’t turn into, “Ryan and Patrick die against every sidequest boss”.

Chrono Trigger Endurance Run Ep. 34 [GO/ER]
Jan 12th, 2012 by Dan

Brono and the gang must pacify Brog’s former mentor, Cyrus, but will their power be enough? I seem to remember this boss being particularly brutal.
