Don't like the snow? You can make a bookmark with the following text instead of a url: javascript:snowStorm.toggleSnow(). Clicking it will toggle the snow on and off.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    "We're Canadian, we don't have amendments" made me laugh harder than it should have. Especially since there was a man wearing a fez to the speaker's right.

    I love Fez because it's a work of Art that asks the player to think for a change, rather than endless iterations of 'shooting-mans 9000 idiocracy simulator'.
    But then it wouldn't be art if you weren't able to take your own interpretation away from it, would it?

    Also I'm not sure any-more as to whether 'BYOB' means 'Bring your own beer' or 'Bring your own bucket'... :P

    Whoever came up with "Boom Duties/Doom Booties": hats (fezzes) off to you.

    P.S. We wear Stetsons now.

    I don't know for certain, but they have used tracks from this band before:

    Do you mean Checkpoints', or Fez's? Because all available LoadingReadyRun music can be purchased at the LoadingReadyRun Store Downloads Section! Looks like they've got some sort of Checkpoint Dance Remix for sale. Because otherwise, presumably, the Checkpoint theme would only be about 15 seconds long.

    (They also have other cool stuff in their store! Physical goods even!)

    Only for The Daily Drop, but well remembered! All our music these days is either C64 chiptunes, or lovingly-handcrafted by our resident composer Bradley Rains.

    Is it just me, or do the intro and outro voiceovers sound deeper this week?

    When the episode began, I thought Graham had a cold. Then I thought Kathleen was doing an impression of Graham with a cold.

    All the on-camera stuff in between sounded normal though.

    Does Canada do taxes the same time as America?

    It was recorded separately because we lost the files originally. I didn't have a cold, but I was a bit groggy, as we were on the road at a con last weekend. Well spotted though!

    Graham, you seem to have gotten taller over the last few episodes. Is it because you are sitting on a gigantic heap of filthy sellout profit?
