Gentlemen's Lunchtime Association

Like a book club, but with video games.

Down for scheduled maintainence at 1PM GMT, 2nd of april 2013

My host is upgrading their hardware. Soon we’ll have SSD caching, gigabit ports and spangly new hardware all round. In the meantime, remember that you can watch this stream both on our official twitch tv page and on Gather Your Party. We’ll be changing IP addresses so we may be offline for some time, depending on how fast your ISP is with that.

Love, Cats

PS: Podcast has been delayed. Unfortunately, there was an error in the recording process that screwed up the audio from around the two hour mark, but I’d edited those two hours before I realized. I was able to retrieve the backup recording from happyman but haven’t had time to finish it as of yet. Apologies to all!

March 14th 2013

March 14th is a good day. It is a day that occurs once a year, that fat americans use as an excuse to imbibe as much as they can of various forms of a harmful substance that causes obesity.
Yes, March 14th is Pi day. It’s also my birthday. Also Billy Crystal’s, but who really gives a fuck. This year I turn 20.

Anyways, I hear plenty about people wanting me to stream, but right now I’m between a rock and a hard place. The real reason I haven’t really been streaming is, my little brother occupies the only computer with a working audio-input device. It’s a webcam. No it won’t work on the good computer. I tried that. also the audio is shit anyways.
So, for the very first time in my life, I am asking something from the internet.
I’m gonna give it to you straight. Could I have a mic, or something to that effect? I’m really really strapped for cash, because I’m trying to leave in April, and I don’t even have money I can spend. Especially because whatever money I can’t get cuts into my college education. Which I have yet to start.
Idk, it’d make me happy. You don’t have to if you don’t wanna.

If you have shit to send me, please send it to 644 Gilbert Avenue, Hamden CT 06514. that’s in the US by the way, in case you forgot where Connecticut was.

Just so that we’re really, honestly, and perfectly fucking clear…

I’m still alive, and if anyone, like say, boigahs, tries to steal Barkley 2 from me, they will be found and executed.
I’ve been busy lately. I have work as an actor, voice lessons, band practice and shows pretty much all the way to the last week of jan. I might be around GLA starting that last week. Writing today because I’m sick.
I’m looking to get back to GLA, and I will be more adamant about seeing you guys. Not because “certain comments” terrify me (which they do, I’m so serious.) but I’m gonna try to do my part to make gla less dead.
Cause you guys are pretty cool.
Just saying.
