I had the TWiT live stream running in the background while settling down into some work tonight, when I heard Jeff introduced on the LAN party show (Shut Up And Play) that runs after the new GameOn! that they've been doing. The link to the stream is below (the show is now long over; it's now back to regular TWiT network programming).

http://live.twit.tv/

You can watch an archive of the entire LAN party, which consisted of a lot of discussion between Jeff and Brian Brushwood and Glenn Rubenstein, while they played TrackMania and Mario Kart 64 for about four hours by clicking this link. There's chatter about Taco Bell and Luna Bars and Midnight Brown, but there's also a lot of conversation about the business, the old days, friends, and lots of other interesting stuff. If you like to watch Jeff's "whiskey jar" videos on here, then you will probably love this. The content starts at about 42h:08m and runs until at least 46h:00m: http://www.justin.tv/twit/b/308422353

You can also see the best moment of the entire broadcast, below. After wagering on several games of four-man Mario Kart 64, Brian Brushwood and Jeff Gerstmann are the losers and are forced to slow-dance to Lady in Red on a live stream before tens of thousands for almost five minutes.

(Posted by later in this thread, but I'm going to add it here, so you don't have to search through a dozen pages for it.)

Backup Slow-Dance video, in case youtube video is down: http://vimeo.com/36678740

Also: Since this glorious moment (or four hours, frankly) was partially brought to us by Brian Brushwood, I would really encourage all the "who's that pointy-hair guy" people to consider checking Brian out. Chances are you'll get to like him. The guy is hilarious and damn smart (the hair is part of his "thing" - he's a stage entertainer at colleges and other venues in addition to a pretty prolific podcaster). Specifically, I'd suggest starting off with NSFW Show that he does with Justin Robert Young. It's sort of a weekly late-night show that gets really out of hand. It's a much better representation of the dude than if you just saw him doing a game show for the first time.

It's Jeff Gerstman. On TWiT's Game On/Shut Up And Game show (the LAN party that they do after Game On). This week's game for the LAN is Track Mania . . . and . . . so . . . Jeff Gerstman poofs in from out of nowhere, of course! :D

Alright. I'm watching it and I have no idea what's going on other than them talking about a SNES game.

Jeff writing a book is a fucking good idea.

This is pretty interesting. Jeff should promote this stuff.

#10 Posted by NTM (7479 posts) -

Wow, he's really talking about his and his friends history huh? Very interesting.

Fascinating edition: 'This is Your Life Jeff Gerstmann'. Too cool. And OK, so you've got the new Vita in your belly. Perfect Jeff. :P

Good stuff tc, thanks.

I like how they just left it on the Mario Kart title screen.

That fucking Mario Kart 64 music...

#22 Posted by Captain_Felafel (1576 posts) -

Trackmania is like Jeff's bat signal; whenever anyone is talking about or playing Trackmania, Jeff appears out of nowhere.

#23 Posted by PeasantAbuse (5138 posts) -

Trackmania 2 is all about heavy drops, amazing.

#24 Posted by Milkman (17001 posts) -

WELCOME TO MARIO KART

What the fuck is going on?

#25 Posted by AjayRaz (12440 posts) -

Trackmania is all about heavy drops.

#26 Posted by Zithe (1045 posts) -

What's with the audio? Are they afraid to stream the music from the trackmania server?

#27 Posted by Milkman (17001 posts) -

Also, what is up with this Nigel McGuinness looking motherfucker?

#28 Posted by ZeForgotten (10397 posts) -

That would be TWIT's resident Game On host, magician and silly man Brian Brushwood.

Does anyone know what Trackmania 2 server they are on? It doesn't look like Jeff's.

#33 Posted by selbie (1929 posts) -

This is random as hell and totally awesome. Thank you.

Yep. Someone in IRC asked what that bulge was and he said it was a Vita, but it's under embargo, so he's not able to whip it out.

Yes. Yes, I did. I'm hungry, damn it.

I don't think they're Jeff's. There is one for the free game and one for the paid game. They're probably run by the TWiT/GameOn community.

Glad I stumbled across it. I normally don't watch TWiT live and I don't normally care about their new game show (it's fine - I just prefer dudes sitting around talking games than "this week's gaming news" ala X-Play). When I heard Glenn bring Jeff on, I knew it had to be shared, immediately. :)

Brian Brushwood is actually pretty cool. Look into Scam School (he's a magician and he teaches scams/tricks you can pull in a bar). Or look into NSFW on TWiT. He also is hired for college tours and other events to put on shows for them (magic, driving a nail through his face, eating fire) and is huge in Thailand. He is also one of three hosts in the really smart Weird Things podcast.

#44 Posted by rentfn (1282 posts) -

My life is complete. I've seen Jeff eat a Taco.

#45 Posted by Aoi (47 posts) -

Nah, the LAN party is one of the few things TWiT doesn't archive.

#46 Posted by Rapid (1379 posts) -

wonder how many people in the chat are from GB

They archive GameOn, but the after-show (the LAN which is where Jeff showed up) isn't archived, I don't think.
