Site Changes!

Alright, after spending the whole day free of the forums, the increased speed and reliability has nailed it: TGA forums are no more. On the plus side, it means the site is now crazy fast, and so browsing around isn't the frustrating exercise it was in the past. I'm now trying to get facebook comment integration instead, since it's what all the kids are using these days. I've also added the option for Hard-C ...

Thinking of ditching the forums

Remember when I finally succumbed to fan pressure and spent days setting up a forum for you guys? My original opposition to the idea was that the site still lacked the necessary interaction and involvement from fans to make the venture worthwhile.

Carl Sagan’s “Meat Planet”

Little known fact about the meat planet: while there's an abundance of pork and beef, there seems to be a mysterious lack of chicken or fish. Are we to assume that such a large body of protein could have formed without attracting the lower gravity poultry in its orbit? Could coalescing chicken have a greater density than its bovine counter-part? Perhaps we shall never know... ...

Super mega mail-bag time

We haven't done a mailbag in a long time, so I thought it might be a good idea if we did a crazy huge one for The Essentials DVD. Now, to make it more interesting, I want fans to send questions for each individual host as well. Carisa, Jeff, and Ryan are going to be in the hot-seat, and you'll be the ones putting them there. Of course, it wouldn't be a mailbag without some of you asking me a bunch of weird ...
