i love that the one dude's son made him give sonic a chance and he sees the world through his son's less jaded eyes XD. Like sonic aint such a bad movie given it's a freakin sonic movie...it has no rights to even be passable. It should be so bad you wanna pry your eyes out. Lol.

Great to see some XC3 love around here. It's still suprising me 130 hrs in and it's pretty much just got better and better as it went.

There's a whole lot of cool shit still left to see and do if you folks stick with it. Man that music when a Mobius fight kicks off just doesn't get old.

I have the same problem grubb does with lyrics, they just do not register with me. I often have to listen intently several times to pick up what they're saying. I've taken to just listening to a lot of instrumental stuff the last several years

Please, please get Grubb a new microphone. I can’t listen to the podcast at at all anymore with all of the static coming from him.

@konrad: I was wondering if anybody else heard that or if I have just had corrupted downloads for a couple weeks. It’s not unlistenable for me but it is pretty loud.

I would absolutely buy exactly one (1) Crystal Pepsi if they brought it back. Loved it as a kid, and I’m sure it was actually quite terrible.

There was some “holiday spice” Pepsi in the mid-00s that I swore tasted like Crystal Pepsi at the time. Do they still make that, or is that another defunct soft drink?

please fix Grubbs Microphone, something is really wrong - I've got problems with my ears sometimes and it's almost impossible for me at this point to listen because I have to listen to it pretty loud on headphones @jeffgrubb

A post-EVO podcast without Jason is not a post-EVO podcast
