Bombcast Breakdown!! - 3.4.2008

Because two exclamation marks means you're super serial about it!!   
I'm going to be going through each show (ideally) and taking copious notes, as college has taught me.  The first show was a bit rough due to divided time between audio editing and note taking.   
 
This is a fluid list.  Beta as it's likely to be known.  Things are going to be dynamic, pertaining to formatting and such, until I get a feel for how things turn out.     
If you see any mistakes/have a subsection idea or something along those lines, let me know!!  This list is not just for me!

Good luck.

I can't believe its been two years since I first listened to the Bombcast. It's especially cool to remember some of those out of context quotes from such a while back.

Posted by TimeWaffle

i was one the one who asked the one who asked the Gatorade question

Posted by Bratcher_Lev

I thought about doing this but realized I didn't have it in me.

Posted by VIGGO123

Wow, are you really going to go through them all? That's one hell of a job!
But by all means, I really appreciate it, a lot of things i remember from the podcast, but just not which one.

Posted by FunExplosions

Holy shit. See you in five years.

Here is the link for   Rush (34.12).  That's for the Franchise page for Rush because I believe he is using it in that light (as in 'they own the rights to the Rush name').  
 
Apples to Apples   (1.13.19)  This is a link to the Wiki page for Apples to Apples as he is specifically referencing the actual card game and that isn't in the Bomb database. 
 
 Journey (1.13.39) might be Journey Escape (probably one of my favorite games from my childhood) but there are a couple of game with Journey in the title (even one just called Journey).  I suppose that one would need verification from the guys. 
 
Gary Gygax (48.52) 
 
I'm kinda surprised Andy McNamara doesn't have a page here on GB, he is (or was, I haven't read it in a while) editor-in-chief of Game Informer magazine.  I don't know if that warrants him having a page but if so, someone should get on that. 
 
And finally Brian Crecente is another guy that I'm sort of surprised there isn't at least a bare bones page about.  Editor-in-chief of Kotaku (again, may or may not actually still be part of Kotaku).  Once again, perhaps people might want to make a page for him if it should exist.

You're insane.

Holy crap im scared

As ridiculous and a little terrifying as this is, this might end up being totally useful. I can think of at least two times that I wanted to find a specific Bombcast moment and had absolutely no idea where to start. 
 
Godspeed, you ridiculous, obsessive emperor.

Man oh man...There should be an archive for this.

Keep up the good fight!

Posted by Atomasist

Godspeed.

Posted by FireSketch

You're very, very insane.
 
And I love you for that.

Posted by CharlesAlanRatliff

Holy fuck. Nice work! I can't imagine how long it would take to really do them all.

Posted by LordAndrew

Excellent breakdown duder.

Posted by FluxWaveZ

Ambitious.  Really ambitious.

Posted by MotherBrain

Whoa! Are you breaking down every podcast like this? That would be amazing!

Posted by Grilledcheez

I hope you're under the influence of some kind of powerful drug...if not, you should probably be taking some kind of powerful drug.    
 
P.S. I admire your courage, you high ass hippie!

Posted by Scarlet_Rogue

This is beasty. keep it up!!

Posted by natetodamax

Whoa....

@Phunk_King: I'm really trying to debate whether or not we should link to outside the Whiskey network.  For one, it would be good for the whole of the 'breakdown, just for the sake of being complete 100% linkable and such.  Conversely, which sites/links would we determine to be the defacto on the person/object?
