28 – Sighs: The Episode; or, We Jaw About Doom

Doom is out, and it’s really great.  If you’re not in complete agreement with that opinion, just go find somewhere else to spend your time (actually don’t do that, we really need you, please come back).  The Brothers Denton manage to cram a whole bunch of topics into the very beginning — the competition show Face/Off, Pauldrons: The Movie, and celebrity addiction.  Afterward, we dedicate over an hour to John Carmack, John Romero, old Doom, new Doom, and, of course, Turbo Ferraris.  For a fun game, count how many times Bob sighs in this episode.  For some reason he sounds like a dumb miserable baby.

27 – Part 2: A Huge (Unplanned) Episode of Everything

Ever been to an Indian food restaurant where a church choir practice is happening?  We hadn’t either.  Until the other day.  We start Part 2 reflecting on some sound clips from the strangest meal we’ve ever eaten.  After it’s done, a game of What’s In Bob’s Masculine Purse? should clean your tongue like pickled ginger.  Rance gabs some about the upcoming Evil Hat Dresden Files cooperative card-game, and in a complete reversal, he challenges Bob’s frighteningly-sick knowledge of Castlevania: Symphony of the Night for PS1.  Afterward, we talk a little about Kevin Cook, owner of the world’s largest dice collection, a conversation which gets intensely moronic (and potentially hypocritical).  We end this episode with some talk on Game of Thrones season 6 and take you out with a track from Mega Ran.

9 – Dreamcasting The Dresden Files

At machine gun pace: Mad Dog McCree, Heroes: Reborn and all the opinions we have about it, the new Star Wars extended universe books, third-person present perspective, and Mon Mothma, whoever the hell that is.  Afterward, Rance challenges Bob to a little game that may alter the very future of Brothers From The Same Mother.  After Bob sweats and sweats, we towel him off with a dreamcasting session for The Dresden Files, one of our favorite urban fantasy series.  Harry Dresden, Molly and Michael Carpenter, the duplicitous Nicodemus, Karrin Murphy, and a number of other characters suffer our poor taste in “appropriate” casting if we were the chosen casting directors.  To finish it all off, Bob returns the challenge: What’s In Bob’s Masculine Purse? yields some unexpected and stomach-churning results.

 


1 – The Brothers’ Maiden Voyage

The Brothers Denton — Bob and Rance — babble incessantly, empowered by modern technology and one very unfortunate microphone that drew the shortest straw.  In this episode, we introduce ourselves and our love for comic books, movies, and video games (not including The Big Bang Theory; you find out what Bob thinks about that particular gem).  We offer a multitude of excuses for our lack of knowledge about those things for which we express adoration; likewise, we verbally amble on without direction or organization.  There is some awkward laughter.  We agree very loudly with one another and sometimes repeat what the other’s already said.  You will be amused.  Or you will think it’s just trash.
