Heres the song I was singing while making spaghetti :

Jason and Dan

Dan and Jason

Dan is a guy

Jason is adjacent

Jason and Dan

Dan and Jason

Dan has a face

So does Jason

Welcome to the site dudes. Try to keep Brad awake, that's the main reason you were hired.

Welcome guys! I enjoyed your first Bombcast this morning, looking forward to seeing you all working together. I saw some of the negativity going on in other parts of the internet, but I'm glad all these duders are happy to welcome you!

Don't listen to the negativity, some people will never be happy.

Hello and welcome. I don't know much about either of you, but I trust Giant Bomb to hire good people. Glad to have you both along with us.

No one said anything about them having faces don't start such rumours.

Great to have you with us. Entire site has, quite logically, been anticipating who'd turn up to be the new hires. Judging from the podcast, it seems like you're going to fit right in.

While I doubt you'll personally read this, I hope that todays explosion of cloak and dagger wielding shitbags hasn't soured you on what I still consider a genuinely terrific community. I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say that we hope you'll find means and desire to interact with the community, and ofcourse, that you enjoy your stay.

I thinks it's fantastic that Dan and Jason are joining Giant Bomb, and I personally cannot wait for the eventual wrestling takeover that will surely happen.

Been enjoying Dan on the Powerbombcast and his random OkCupid prank stories on past E3 live shows (think that was him). Don't know anything about Jason, but I'm excited to see them join and I'm hoping this leads to more and more awesome content. Welcome aboard, guys.

Big welcome to the giant bomb community to Dan and Jason. Can't wait to see you both in action. I like the sound of both your voices on the podcast (no homo).

Welcome aboard, fellas! I have quite enjoyed Dan's work in the past; he seems like a good fit for the site. And I'm sure Drew will appreciate some help on the video production side from Jason ;)

This video of Dan playing Tokyo Jungle with his dad is still one of my favorite things:

I'm not familiar with Jason but I'm glad to have "Dirty" Dan Ryckert onboard. Giant Bomb needs at least one person on the staff with a Ribera jacket.

Welcome Jason and Dan! I don't know Jason, but he sounds pretty awesome. Love Dan's stuff from the GI days, and his appearances on the Powerbombcast. Looking forward to checking out that new Quicklook when it comes online.

Definitely excited. They seem like good dudes and I enjoyed them on the bombcast. Can't wait to see them getting in on QLs and UPF and such. It seems like you found some dudes that will mesh with the existing staff well and won't take long to become accustomed to, which is awesome.

The beginning of a new era! Can't wait to check out the new Quick Look tomorrow morning, that game is lots of fun and has plenty of dumb stuff in it. Great material for a QL.

Glad to have some new blood at GB, and it'll be good to have a chance for more wrestling chat at GB! Maybe Dan can use his mad wrestler whisperer skills to lure a WWE star in for a QL or something.

Watching Dan's old videos, he clearly has a a great sense of humour and an appreciation of the silly ala Vinny/Ryan so I have no doubt he's a great fit :) Woot!

@danryckert Jeff thinks the new Riff Raff album is pretty good. Just hoping he's aware of your chance encounter with Mr. Raff and his game design methods.

So I was at work and missed everything but from what I can extrapolate:

1. Two new people are joining are GB

2. People are mad about it

Can someone give me the Cliff Notes version of today's events?

PM'd you.

Welcome guys! I think it's only fair to let everyone have some time to get more comfortable and familiar with each other to really judge the new dynamic. Can't wait to hear you all going at each other like on GOTY casts!

(PS. I'm a female fan and think that anyone who paid any real attention to Giant Bomb would know that of all the possible groups to accuse of misogyny and racism, the GB crew is obviously NOT a valid candidate. It's a small crew, they have specific needs, it's not inconceivable that this just happens to be the best fit. Going out of the way and making it a point to hire for "diversity" IS racist and misogynistic.)

Honesty I don't know how Dan can top himself after reviewing fart apps with Peter Molyneaux. I'd say that his single greatest accomplishment on the interverse.

Thanks, I actually looked at the other thread for a bit and decided I didn't want to know anymore.

Welcome Dan and Jason! Other than hearing Dan's name from time to time on other podcasts, I knew nothing else about you guys. But after listening to the most recent Bombcast and looking up some of your previous work, you seem like a great fit for this site. I can't wait to see what you guys bring to the team. I'm sorry to hear about all this crazy nonsense that is happening right now but I'm sure it will pass eventually. In the meantime, keep being awesome and make some great content. GLHB!
