Drinky Talky Thing 2011 #14

Poor guy scribbles on a wall to warn you, but still gets nailed by some turrets.

Now here’s the thing, Gow did tell me I had to start this post with a word – but for the life of me I cant remember what it is.

I think it was one of the random word that he didn’t quite manage to fit in.

Anyway, this week saw Gow returning after a week off with some form of plague and the good news is the podcast got back to full length again.

So with all my needed stalling done enjoy this weeks podcast.

This is a crisis. A large crisis. In fact, if you got a moment, it's a twelve-story crisis with a magnificent entrance hall, carpeting throughout, 24-hour portage, and an enormous sign on the roof, saying 'This Is a Large Crisis'. A large crisis requires a large plan. Get me two pencils and a pair of underpants

Don’t be fooled by the images there is no crisis, I just had to get the images in there to solve one of the random words that Alec got asked to add. It was unfortunately too late for the recording but there was no way ‘Wibble!’ was going to be missed out.

As you may have already guessed, as well as the return of Gow to help round out the podcast, this week also saw a return Alec-Ross Bower. He joins us for the later part of the episode and has some very interesting things to say.

But the good thing about that image is that I also don’t need to do as much padding  🙂 So without further time-wasting, here is this episode

Vikings of Thule

The Drinky Talky Thing Podcast, Episode #6 – Part 1

Vikings of Thule
The free beer that we got from Vikings of Thule, Sponsors of Episode 6

Yay, after a long delay were finally back.

Yes I know its been a while since the last episode of the Podcast, but unfortunately we cannot stop people getting ill.

Between the three of us, every time we set a new date for recording one of us would be put out of commission by man-flu, epic scale hangovers or just sheer exhaustion.

However we finally got together again and in order to put us back on track we have recorded a double length episode.  As a result some of this stories may be a bit older and obviously the longer recording increases the alcohol content had an impact.

Because of how long it is, I have split it into two parts – So here is Part one for you to enjoy.

Play

Part 2 is available Here when your ready to listen to the rest.

Now we also have Two official sponsors to give shouts out  – I’ll mention one in each post.

Sponsor #1

The cool guys at Gogogic (http://www.gogogic.com/) who have released a facebook MMO called Vikings of Thule (http://www.facebook.com/vikingsofthule). They sent us a new poster for the office, as well as some beers called ‘Viking’ & ‘Thule’ that we enjoyed during recording.
