Gentlemen's Lunchtime Association

Like a book club, but with video games.

The Reports of my Death are Mostly True

Hello cattlepokes. First, I would like to drop in to apologize for not being around more often. I have booked 2 weeks of holiday for christmas, so I’m hoping I’ll be able to do a chunk of Lawyer Guy development sometime then (and maybe watch out for a stream from me\dodds\the other one!).

Second: podcast. Happyman is putting Family Feud on hiatus while we brainstorm new questions. Until then, I am proposing to fill the void as follows:
1) Get back on the video game movie\TV book club wagon (no cattlepoke reference intended). I proposed Law & Order: Special Victims Unit season 16 episode 14 – Intimidation Game (boy, that’s a mouthful). And yes, I promise it’s about video games.
2) For a while now I’ve just been bringing interesting things I found on the internet and\or things that annoyed me. I would now like to extend that to a more general segment. Bring anything you think is interesting! I will try and bring something every podcast to get the ball rolling.

Love, Catsman

Do you ever think that Kevin Spacey was really well-cast in that film about space? I mean, it’s in his name. Kevin SPACEy. Space-y.

Podcast 58 will record on Saturday the 3rd of September (plus: screenplay?)

Probably at around 4PM British Summertime (GMT+1 – click the link to see it in your local time). On our mumble server, as usual. Note it down in your calendars!

Additionally, the screenplay idea I mentioned at the end of last podcast (Hell Bent, the one about criminals breaking into the afterlife in order to steal Amborsia from God) is now an 89-minute screenplay. Anybody want to be script editor? It could use another pair of eyes. I have to warn you that it’d probably just be for fun, as the chances of a spec script getting made into an actual movie (even a low-budget one) are astronomically low.

Give me a buzz ( if you’re interested, or leave a comment below.

Love, Cats

Podcast recording will be mid-week, UK evening (~7PM BST)

EDIT: tuesday is most probable day.

I will take a survey tomorrow evening, and the actual podcast will probably lie on tuesday or wednesday. If we can’t schedule it then it will be the following week instead. I don’t think this is a great timeslot but I feel like we’re overdue for one and the next few weekends will be tricky.

Timezone converter for those interested

If anyone is wondering about the break in schedule; I’ve been real busy, then without the internet for a while, and will be busy again. By the end of the summer I’ll be operating on a more normal schedule and will be able to scheduke and edit podcasts with some regularity.

Love, Cats
