Episode #20: Random Curly Hairs & Sporadic Confusion

With her as the medic, I think I would get shot a lot more often

All I have to say about tonight’s podcast is that I have no idea where the random curly hair came from. It may have been what Gow thought it was it may have been something else, further investigation was not worth considering.

Strangely for the last two weeks both myself and Gow seem to have been more affected by the beer than normal.

We seem to go off track a lot more regularly each week than we did before, no that its a bad thing obviously. Some of our more entertaining stuff is when we go off on one.

Seems that Gows friends have also lost the plot again, I’m really not sure if some of the random words he had to fit in were even real words.

Anyway we managed to fit them in and between bouts of what I will henceforth classify as ‘podcast touretts’ we also managed to cover most of what is linked below.

We’re also still taking suggestions for the mid podcast songs. So if you have a suggestion for song to be included in the podcast then put it in the comments of this post or send them too @DrunkenGamer or @D_Gow . They will be put on the short-list and you will be mentioned in the podcast itself when played

Anyway enjoy this episode of the Drinky Talky Thing.

  1. Hi Paddy,

    Thanks for mentioning Cloudfrag on the latest podcast – I’m really enjoying hearing gamers discussing the idea, and it is throwing up some interesting ideas.

    I’ll need to add “How much wood…” to the FAQ. 😉

    If you have any questions/suggestions, or would like more details about Cloudfrag, please get in touch, I’d be happy to answer as much as I can.

    Thanks again for the mention,


    • Not a problem its a very interesting concept for a service with lots of potential.

      I look forward to hearing more about it as it progresses
