90’s Kids – Episode006
Aaron is drunk. Brian is eating pepperoni.
Books reviewed in passing: Wheel of Time, Felicia Day’s You’re Never Weird on the Internet (Almost), Starship Troopers.
Big run down on Kim Jun http://www.vanityfair.com/news/2015/02/kim-jong-un-north-korea-understanding
Ernest Cline’s Armada is reviewed a bit more in depth. We loved his “Ready Player One” does his sophmore effort live up to his first one?
Brian lays down the law on Aaron not watching anything. (note Aaron has still not seen Her) Battlestar Galactica brings up a moral dilemma and growls about the ending.
North Korea is goggled at. Can we even really understand what a monarchy really is? Who is NK’s leader really?
We discuss capitalism a bit and the answer is Google. Digital selves vs real life personas. Aaron’s gamertags are either Bluecelt or James Mctaggart ; Steam is geococyx atheos. Brian is olaf berzerker. Always. Sandbox games and our penultimate example Star Wars Galaxies makes another appearance.
It always comes back to the Simpsons. Cartoons will always be with us. Awesome video reference. Hey Hey Hey The kids of today are weird and like silly media. Now get the hell off our lawn. Remember picture in picture? 90’s kids do. Commercials can never be topped by this one. Got Glasses? Hulu falls short of Crackle for Aaron because of commercials. Empire Carpet will always live on in our heads, while Eagleman holds our hearts high.
We want to hear from you. Please. We don’t mean what we said about your mother. She has lovely cankles.
Take us out Kim Jon Il.
