Movember 2012 has officially begun

This is the only time of year you are likely to see Paddy's chin, yes he does actually have one.
This is the only time of year you are likely to see Paddy’s chin, yes he does actually have one.

Every year something very strange happens, despite spending the rest of the year fully bearded each November I go clean shaven.

Well clean shaven for about a day, then the moustache starts to appear which is the whole point. You see I take part in a little thing called Movember where millions of men grow moustaches in order to raise awareness of and money for men’s health issues.

How can a moustache do that? Well what is the first thing your going to do when someone you know suddenly starts sporting a ‘stache that normally doesn’t? You ask them about it, giving them a chance to spread the word. This is also what I am doing now.

Last year I managed to talk some of my coworkers into joining the fold. We became Team Moustacha and raised over £150 for charity between us which was good going really. This year however we plan to do even better.

With a bigger team and more of a push Team Moustacha 2012 is ready to roll. If you want to come and join us our team page can be found at https://www.movember.com/uk/register/details/team_id/453329 or if you simply want to donate so we can beat last years total you can do so here http://mobro.co/DrunkenGamer

Episode #46: The return of the TurkeySaladBoy

Well another week another episode of the podcast and boy was it a good one – after months of chasing him to come back and join us, we were finally rejoined by the legendary TurkeySaladBoy.

It is always a good laugh to get Craig involved because he brings such a  different take on gaming, being the only one of us that really still works in the industry. It also gives us a new take on some of our old arguments.

Oh, and the reason the podcast picture this week is actually a video – well part way through the show I messed about with the Just Dance 3: Autodance App and made one of the most epic videos of Gow & Craig you are ever likely to see.

Were all still growing Moustaches for Movember so you want to help us in our good cause then you can donate to us for our madness at http://mobro.co/DrunkenGamer.

Anyway on to the podcast and as always links to almost all the topics covered in tonight’s show are available after the jump.

Also as always we are still taking suggestions for the mid podcast songs. So if you have a suggestion for song to be included in the podcast then put it in the comments of this post or send them too @DrunkenGamer or @D_Gow . They will be put on the short-list and you will be mentioned in the podcast itself when played

Anyway enjoy this episode of the Drinky Talky Thingy.

We have set up an Amazon wish list full of beer and sugary things that you can send to us (trust us were just as funny hyper as drunk). Anyone that does so can send any message with their beer and we will say it in the show. Amazon.co.uk: Drinky Talky Thing

Not entirely sure what PETA were thinking with this advert - I want meat more not less now!

Episode #45: Late to the Party, but still lots of fun!

Not entirely sure what PETA were thinking with this advert - I want meat more not less now!
Not entirely sure what PETA were thinking with this advert - I want meat more not less now!

As you know there would normally be an intro here that was in some way related to something that we said during the podcast however this week we ran late recording, and I had visitors on Friday night – So as I have slept twice since then what was said during the podcast is a complete blur too me.

All I can be certain of is that we talked gaming news, took the piss out of each other, fucked up at some point during recording and got drunk. Seeing as I remember the hangover Friday morning the last one is a certainty.

Were both also still growing Moustaches for Movember so you want to help us in our good cause then you can donate to us for our madness at http://mobro.co/DrunkenGamer.

Episode #43: Sporting a Moustache for Movember

I hope my Moustache is this epic by the end of Movember!

Well were here another week in and good news people, I did not have to record this episode of the podcast all alone. No, thankfully Gow was back this week.

However before we start on the podcast I want to take a bit of a detour. This month is most commonly known as November, however for the last few years it has been also known as Movember. This is due to a charity event aimed at raising awareness of men’s health, particularly prostate cancer, by having thousands of men worldwide grow a moustache.

Now normally I am fully bearded & Gow just simply does not seem to be able to grow facial hair at all, however we have both agreed to join in on this years event and will be growing moustaches for the cause.
