A kickass little indie game came out recently. It’s called Owlboy. Go check it out. Dirk and Dan have been playing the butt off of it, and Dirk even picked the main character, Otus as his hero this week.

Andy’s been playing a lot of pin the tail on the donkey by himself in his underwear at home alone, so he picked George W Bush.

Let’s do it in Arlen, TX this week, I’ll tell ya hwhat.

Don’t worry, it’s very possible! But it is! Family Therapist Scott Tobin helps bring perspective and grace in this moving episode of Kinda Dating so we can let go of all that weight we carry relationship to relationship and celebrate the holidays happily.

Rabbit Hole with Jay and Rory fills the Wednesday slot famously held for the past six years by The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail, which ended its run in October 2016. Gaston D-L from Meltdown, Inc. says, “The legacy of comedy on Wednesdays runs deep at Meltdown Comics; we have been putting on shows here for ten years now. We couldn’t be happier to have our flagship show be reincarnated with such qualified and familiar names as Jay and Rory. Keep the Wednesday energy alive and come laugh with us again!” The Meltdown Show producer Emily V. Gordon expresses her support for the new show as well: “The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail are collectively stoked for the next chapter of Wednesday nights at Meltdown Comics knowing that Jay Larson and Rory Scovel are at the helm.”

Jay’s first album, Self Diagnosed, was released in 2011 by AST records, and his follow up album, Human Math, was released this Fall.

We’re sorry. The beginning of this episode assumed that people were better.

We finished up our Extra Life stream with another episode of Battlecast: this one. It’s James playing one of the strangest wrestlers (yes, we know that’s saying a lot) we’ve ever heard of, Broken Matt Hardy vs. one of the most vanilla characters in anything ever, the main guy from J.A.G.- LTCR Harm.
