The high-power hijinks continue as the professor goes to the Double-D’s used cars to find the Blue Scorpion. Cars randomly explode in the parking lot, there are attestations that ladies will not be touched, and hilarity ensues. Also, Phase’s secret identity is discovered!

On this, the second episode of the second annual GAD-Con Fiasco special, the gang continues selecting the needs, objects, and locations. They also discuss what their relationships are. While people are pondering the prospects, the rest of the crew jokes and pontificates on a wide variety of topics. These include, but are not limited to:

  • white chocolate and sour patch kids
  • which of Jewel Staite’s roles where better
  • Jordan’s love life
  • the prospects of a superhero Mrs. Doubtfire
  • Several “Arrested Development” references
  • Random burbling
  • The tastiness of mead
  • Stephanie’s forgotten cinnamon buns

Needless to say, fun was had by all!

Well, this went well.

Remember the comic book that set fire to the SEATAC airport? Remember where that came from? Well, find out what happens when the group only has one vehicle to flee in… the Canterbury Airport Van. And guess where it takes them? You got it in one guess! Find out what happens when they get a room and the proverbial fan meets the proverbial manure…

Well, we wanted to say thanks for tuning into the GAD-Con specials. We had a lot of fun at the con, and we thought this Fiasco game was a lot of fun. We’re looking forward to doing more special edition sessions in the future, so definitely keep an eye out for those. Stay tuned as we return to the exploits of Landing Team Beta this Friday!

As kind of an archive, here are all nine of the GAD-Con episodes, one more time. (more…)

And this is the last episode of our GAD-Con Fiasco series. Thanks very much for listening to this. New episodes will resume next Friday, August 23rd.

In this episode, we go through the end-of-game montage, showing what happens to the characters. Once that’s completed, we spend a few minutes talking about the game, what we enjoyed, and what we thought about Fiasco overall.

It’s really hard to write a description for this episode. There’s a water main break, a make-out session, a fight, a lawsuit, and a marriage proposal. All in under half an hour. You’ll just have to listen to hear the rest.

The Tilt is here, as chosen by Jeff and Jeremy!

  • 3: Innocence
    • 2: A neighbor wanders into the situation
  • 1: Mayhem
    • 6: Misdirected Passion

After the Tilt was chosen, Harold takes the weedkiller to Michael, where LeRoy springs some unexpected mayhem. Dan goes to the Home Owners Association to resign from the Neighborhood Watch. Thor manages to get out jail, after only having to spend a little extra time with Tiny.

On this episode of our special GAD-Con episode of Bone Throwers Theater, Michael and Joy share some weed, theres a flashback showing just how LeRoy wound up in a wheelchair (with an extra revelation), and Joy and Harold share a special moment in the Chicken Hut’s walk-in cooler.

We’re joined again this episode by Michael Dunnick, this time guest starring as Shamus the fry cook. We also had John from Predatory Games as an observer during the game. Predatory games is getting ready to kickstart an awesome game called Cannibals (Jordan had a chance to playtest it at the con), and we’ll definitely let you know when that begins!

This midweek edition of our GAD-Con episode features  Harold Dinkins (Carlin) receiving an unwanted reward.  Thor Grumbacher (Jordan) faces a boatload of trouble when Dan Macchio (Jeff) catches him stealing money from the Home Owner’s Association. Also, meet friend-of-the-podcast Mike Dunnick laying down the law as a very tough police officer!

We want to thank all of you for tuning into these special convention issues of the show. We had a blast recording these (if the laughter wasn’t enough of a giveaway), and we’re looking forward to being a part of GAD-Con in the future. There were a lot of great people there last year, and we’d love to see you there as well.  If you’re in the Maryland area, or if you’re willing to drive a bit to get here, check out GAD-Con’s website for details about dates, costs, and location.

And here is the third episode of our Gad-Con special series.  In part three of this Fiasco session, Poppleton Terrace gets hairy when  LeRoy Jenkins and Michael Warner continue their escalating personal feud.

Hey everyone, Jordan here. If you look at the run time for this episode, you’ll see that it’s a little short. Before the show begins, I wanted to share with you why.

When we started talking about Bone Throwers Theater, we intended it to be structured like a television show. Every so often, a show takes a break for a few weeks. Sometimes it’s for sweeps. The holidays can cause programmers headaches, too. Or even big sports events, like the Olympics. So much good programming, so little time.

So, just like the tentpole TV show of your favorite network, sometimes the main story of Bone Throwers Theater is going to take a bit of a step back. We hope to schedule this in regular intervals. I’d personally like to do it about every twenty episodes or so.

As a programming note, we had intended to present these episodes as a single week’s worth of episodes. Some very serious real-life things got in the way of that, though. So we’re spreading out the special editions more than I originally intended. You’ll hear me mention the original idea we had, but of course, that’s a day late and a dollar short. Sorry about the inconsistency there.

Back in May, the group was very excited to be a part of the maiden run of Maryland’s newest gaming convention… GAD-Con. We had a blast playing as a podcast group, running games for our other friends, and taking part in other fun RPGs, like Shadowrun and Pathfinder. The Fiasco game you’re about to listen to took place on the first night. I think we may have the distinction of being the first official game of the con! Greg can e-mail me and let me know if I’m wrong, though.

We’re excited that GAD-Con is returning again in 2014, and I’m already thinking about what games I want to be a part of. If you’d like to learn more about GAD-Con, purchase memberships, or just keep in touch with their awesomeness, go ahead and check out this episode’s show notes for a direct link to their website.

OK, folks, that’s enough from me. Enjoy this week’s episode of Bone Thrower’s Theater!

Monticello

A lovely photo one of my sisters took.

In 2011, I went with my sisters to Thomas Jefferson’s estate, Monticello. While we were taking a tour of the grounds, one of the fellow members of the group asked if Jefferson felt any guilt about owning slaves. The tour guide gave a rather long answer, easily summed up as “no, he did not.” From the prospective of us visitors, it wasn’t pretty, but it showed that one of our Founding Fathers was just as human as we are. That’s a thought that can be both comforting and also a bit scary.

The exchange brought an another interesting thought to my mind. Often, we bring modern sensibilities and mores to the table when we are evaluating something from history. Not only that, we also use our own personal experiences to interpret the past. “Hindsight is twenty-twenty.”

This may be overly simplistic, but this lens could be referred to simply as their world view. Our interpretation of prior experiences and events shape our impressions of the world around us. We make decisions based on what we’ve been taught and what we see as true. For better or worse, in this regard, we shape the world which we experience. It could be argued that we all are moving through our own individual worlds. Every interaction we have with someone else is a place in time and space where two worlds collide. (more…)
