Tomorrow is Saturday, and then comes Sunday, but for right now it's all about Friday and the Whiskey Media Happy Hour.  
 
Sorry for the bad Rebecca Black "Friday" joke. I know it's not really funny anymore, but I had to say it.

GiantBomb bits were great. The rest was rubbish - once again.

So now that we got a Ryan and Jeff We Dare QL, when do we get the doujins and the fan-art?

Was too busy seeing my friend's band at a bar, so this is a lovely surprise...I will watch this with a headache tomorrow!

I'm ok with it when Bastion is being shown. Also We Dare was shown off, which a lot of the community wanted to see, so I can understand wanting it to be free for the world! Then again I signed up to support the site and not for perks, so my opinion is null.

Once a month. Thusly, you are statistically wrong.

Damn, the non-subscribers got one of the best segments ever.

Pretty much. But honestly, if you didn't shoehorn the rest of it in with Giant Bomb bits, almost no one (not to be an asshole or anything, just being blunt, here) would give a damn.

Fuck yea paypal support for memberships! Now to wait until I have more than 5 bucks in my account so I can blow $50 on internet whiskey instead of food!!!! Been waiting for this since the start of the membership stuff, I'm just sad that I could get down on the ground floor and get the 2010 shirt but whatever it's not my fault I can't get a CC and paypal wasn't available for the site before now. 
 
Look forward to my $50 in your face soon Whiskey!

Bought both t-shirts, if there were more of them I'd probably buy them too.

Of course the GB segments will be better, because they already do content daily that fits the live show. All they have to do is a short-form Quick Look. Whereas Tested couldn't really make an interesting segment out of some new smartphone, and they can't show iPhone games because Giant Bomb already plays games in their segment, so they have to resort to showing crappy kitchen implements and TV dinners. And they do a fine job of that for what it is.

Look at the viewer stats during the show: Practically no-one else watches the other streams. I'm not interested in comics, I'm not interested in films or their critics and hate the puerile Tested embarrassments. If only Anime-Vice had a slot!  
 
Honestly, the Tested sections are poor, since Will is not a good presenter. Plenty of other shows make technology look interesting to watch, so they really have no excuse, apart from themselves. 
 
I remember watching on-the Spot with Geoff and Ryan on Gamespot. Those shows (with Rich Gallup and Alex) were so awesome. Why can't they do something like that again? A live hour full of different games and competitions, featuring the viewers? I'd be right up for that! 
 
Also I thought this site had no ads for members. What's with all the t-shirt ads?

Definitely buying the Giant Bomb T- Shirt....

People wanted merch, This is also a way to let non members know that they can buy T-shirts which a lot of people have asked for, you got an email saying it was available as did I, but non members didn't. 
 
Also, before the Big live show happened there were  requests for cross site stuff, this is the way they cater to that, think of it as a Whiskey show (Which it is) not a Giant Bomb show, so what you don't like some of the other sites others do, and as the sites grow and get their personalities formed then they'll get into a good stride, I think it's going all right so far,  
 
also remember this is ripped straight from the Stream, so they were getting ready whilst keeping the stream going, same thing happened for the live bombcasts, except you got a grey screen instead.

 So in other words you would never be interested in any Screened or Comic Vine segment.  
 
What exactly do you want them to do? Give the entire show to Giant Bomb because it happens to have the most fans?

I got no email. How many requests? Enough to keep this thing going? Why should I wait for a site to get its personality formed? (Or more likely fail!) This stuff has been going nowhere for a while, especially when the GB crew are away.

I might be, but they are presented so badly that I don't think a discussion format works, so don't watch live and skip through now. I've only done this recently, after enduring the live show up-to-date. 
 
I'd think a good compromise would be to reduce the segment times for Screened, Comic Vine and Tested considerably (no more than 5 mins each max) and leave the rest for the games fans.

Did read that, but honestly, it doesn't change anything I said. The "for better or worse" excuse doesn't really cut it if the answer is "it's for worse." GB bits, for whatever the reason, are the only thing that make most of it worthwhile. To get people to tune in, you have to basically tack on everyone else to Giant Bomb. It's kind of cruel to say, especially since I love Will Smith and don't mind Screened, but GB is practically what carries these live shows (if not WM as a whole). It doesn't really make it any better.
 
I think the idea of a live show as a membership perk is a cool one, but they still need to actually figure out what to do during these live shows if they're not going to scrap them and redirect the time and energy into other things. Hearing people talk about movies or watch trailers isn't anything special and making an actual segment out of that on something you would usually have to pay for is kind of bizarre. (You could also say the same thing about GB playing video games, but the experience of them playing games is fundamentally different with each game.)
 
I guess that was just a really long way of saying that if they're going to keep spending hours preparing and doing these live shows instead of other things, they need to actually put thought into what the hell they're doing in them. 
 
(And personally, IMO, the biggest problem with these live shows is that they basically just try to make them small 20 minute microcosms of the sites that make up Whiskey Media. It almost feels like a clip show. You could basically take a Quick Look, a chunk of the Screened podcast, any random clip of Will Smith just talking, and add shots of them drinking, and you have a perfect replica of the Happy Hour.)

that's a bit of a dick thing to say man.  
 
Enjoy GB, but don't shit on the other sites just because you don't like them, they're alright, they cater for their audience which is growing, if you remember back when this site was a year old how many people regularly checked it out, they had a lot of help because Jeff and Ryan were known names, and had a lot pull, Comic Vine is the webs biggest site for Comics, Tested is growing and now a year old, Screened is starting to grow, Anime Vice caters to it's audience and it is quite large for what they do Tom Pinchuk is doing what he can, until Whiskey hires new personalties to run the site, Whiskey is going to expand with two new sites this year. 
 
Don't be such a downer man.

I almost always like the Screened segments even though I'm not interested in every single film that comes out. I even like the Comic Vine segments from time to time, and I don't give a shit about comic books. It's a fine format.
 
But either way, it's not fair at all to appoint Giant Bomb as The Site That Matters and throw everyone else under the bus. These are good sites trying to build an audience, and I don't think they should be begrudged their equal part of the show just so Giant Bomb can get even more attention than they already do. It's not like we're lacking great GB content every other day of the week.

I feel the same way. In fact the part where the GB guys actually play videogames is sometimes the weakest part of the show. I don't like comics and I'm not hot on the screened section but I'm willing to give them their time for the sake of those who do rather than shit all over them like some people here have been.

Members,

As you know, being a Whiskey Media member has it's perks. As you may not know, we're in the process of making the Whiskey Media Store more of a permanent thing. That means new cool shit to buy - but also, more of it. Today we're opening up the new store to members and non-members alike, but you guys are getting first crack at it. You'll have a chance to get your hands on the once available but quickly sold out Giant Bomb Throwback tee, as well as our newest addition to the Whiskey Media gear line, the Tested Blockhead tee. With this member's only discount code and store access code you'll get $5.00 off your purchase. But get in there quick, as we'll be letting the non-subscribers watching our free end of the month Happy Hour know shortly after the show begins that the store is open to everybody. Thank you for your support of Whiskey Media. You keep our lights on, and we appreciate you for it.

Your buddy,

Dan

from your actual Email account not through a PM, have you turned off notifications or something? might be why you don't receive emails from GB, in which case you shouldn't complain about not being in the know.
