It's gotta be Drake and Remo.

Sorry Lemon, but you're not part of Idle Thumbs.

Can anyone tell me that I got Lemon's name right? He is Steve Rodriguez, right?

Lemon is awesome, but he's a FUCKING INTERN.

Pretty sure that Steve was the guy who's in Afghanistan but maybe they were both Steve.

@ajamafalous: Ah, you're right, now that I think back on it. You'd think I'd have learned after all that Fear Gauntlet watching.

I don't care about Idle Thumbs so I'll go with Lemon. John Drake is a given already.

All of these people seem cool, but I had to go with Drake and Lemon. Drake performed during two PAX panels and his dance-offs with the Bomb Squad are always good for a few laughs. Also, Lemon's extreme lack of sportsmanship was the best part of the otherwise fairly boring Farmville series of videos. Plus, Lemon was, at one point, for better or worse, as much a part of I Love Mondays as crazy backgrounds were.

John Drake and Chris Remo.

Because Drake is Drake and I enjoyed the Chris Remo E3 bombcast.

Yep. I went to college with Steve. I think he introduced me to the site back when it first launched, actually. I was even in two of his QOTW videos.

edit: Well shit, I'm a bad friend. I can't believe I remembered his name incorrectly.

Ekberg for being part of the classic lineup. He was the old starter back in the day. And the man championed Beard Watch 06.

A bit crazy but yeah, Lemon gets a vote from me. I love Condemned and the Fear Gauntlet videos were fantastic.

Fuck! I knew something was wrong. It's Steve Ramirez and not Steve Rodriguez. Damn Latinos, they all sound the same.

By the way, Day Three Poll is also up. Vote here.

@AlexanderSheen: Hmm . . I don't know. Will it make sense to make it annual? Maybe not. Perhaps with some rules change it can become an annual thing.

What is this!? Remo Action News losing to an intern? (love you Steve. lots of homo) Also what E3 cast was Remo on? I'm pretty sure I've listened to them all and never heard the dulcet tones of his voice. He was on one of the GDC casts last year that I know.
