Like a book club, but with video games.

Forrest Jabronnington Badmon’s Grand Departure From The Internet

So as it so happens, I’m leaving in 2 days. For 2 years. And I won’t have the opportunity for recreational use of the internet. Or the opportunity to celebrate my birthday on Friday in my own home.

As it comes to me to explain this, it’s pretty simple.

I’m a Mormon. I chose this of my free will because I thought it was important, because I really and truly believe that this church helps people in ways that nothing else can. I chose this way because I wanted to serve people and learn to love a new people. And stuff like that. If you want to like ask me about it and stuff, you can feel free to mail and email me. But we’ll get to that part later.

As to where I’m going, I’m being sent to Sacramento California Spanish Speaking. But in two days, I’m being sent to Mexico City to the MTC down there. To learn Spanish. Hoping the food is good.

So there you have it. I’m going to miss you guys. And producing music. Also videogames. Less so the last one, but you know, whatever. I’ll be back one day, I promise. It’d be nice to hear some bullshit from you guys once in a while, so I’m going to give you my mailing addresses because I’m not afraid of the internet. Please note that you can’t send packages to the MTC, because in Mexico, people steal packages all the time so it most likely will not make it to me. Also, be aware that I will be arriving in Sacramento on April 21st so I won’t receive your letters and stuff sent to there until then.

The addresses are as follows
Mexico MTC (don’t send packages)

Elder Emmett Hale Farnsworth-Guzman
California Sacramento Mission
México Missionary Training Center
Carretera Tenayuca-Chalmita #828
Colonia Zona Escolar, Gustavo A. Madero
07230 Mexico, Distrito Federal
Mexico

Mailing Address to Mission Office (Can send letters and packages as of April 21st)

Elder Emmett Hale Farnsworth-Guzman
California Sacramento Mission
8267 Deseret Ave
Fair Oaks, CA 95628
United States

Email

emmett.farnsworth-guzman@myldsmail.net

So yeah, if you have some spare time and you’re thinking about how I’ll miss Barkley 2 or something like that, and it makes you sad, write me something. I’ll be happy to recieve any garbage that you write me.

Proposition: New theme tune for gentlemen dicussing vidya

Listen

When I started recording Gentlemen Discussing Vidya, I asked one Mr. Mike Arvela if we could borrow one of his songs to use as the theme tune for the podcast. He very kindly agreed. I am eternally grateful to him, because I didn’t want to write my own music – at that point I thought the podcast might last 2 or 3 episodes at most, and I wasn’t really interested in going to all the effort of writing a theme tune for it.

Well, we’ve apparently lasted for 34. The time has come. So have yourselves a listen and tell me what you think in the comments.

I am going to miss Mr. Arvela’s remix of the Matlock theme tune, and I don’t think there will ever be an interpretation (of that song, or of any song) quite as good. But dangit, we need to stop leeching of other people who are more talented that I. Sorry, Benny Goodman. If it’s any consolation, you’re dead, and I don’t think that ‘borrowing’ music from dead people should be illegal.

The song is supposed to sound seedy and maybe a little bit hip hoppity. I reuse an old motif from my unreleased soundtrack to the game ‘Hatman’. Would anyone here like to rap over the closing credits for me? I have reserved you a little section from around 0:40 to 1:20. We could even have a different person do it every week! No, I don’t care how white you are.

Love, Cats

GLA Sings: “People”

The GWA season 2 finale is a month away, give or take, and I want to do a group sing of the ending theme to play at the end of the show. All you gotta do is send me an audio file or a vocaroo of you singing this song.

Here are the lyrics.

I’m not stingy about how good your singing voice is, all I ask is to be on key and on rhythm so I can sync you up to the other singers. If you want to give a little shout-out or something during the interludes, go ahead.
