Born in the Eighties

Watch out for that dragon yo. Star Wars came out, and Adam and Jon go on a spoiler free discussion of how they liked the film. The guys reminisce of gamecube games past, and Jon talks about his foray into the wild wooly world of VR. Jon again isn't humble about his bundle troubles, but rocks a kickin' butterball. Fuck Wil Wheaton.

War never changes.  Fallout 4 proves that at least games don't change.  Adam and Jon are hyped for the game, and chat about many topics.  Adam tries to sell Jon on the walking dead, and Jon has many opinions on watching other people play games.  Chocolates from around the world is coming to Jon.  Metal Gear Solid 5 is a pretty damn find Hideo game.  Adam can't bring himself to play the game anymore.  Also, Candy Crush is worth more than Star Wars... apparently.  Did Adam fall asleep while recording this episode?  You be the judge.

Jon says good things about Charter, and Charter responds by disconnecting him mid-podcast.  Jon deep dives back into his single past, Adam contemplates a dog, and the guys talk high school sports and such.  Adam survives an ordeal in the desert, and enjoys a new hip hop artist.  And even though the disconnection occurred, the hangout didn't disappear, and Jon didn't go back to pro recording mode, so the sound gets rougher later in the show.  Normally I would check that again, but the application didn't close.  I blame Adam for not saying anything about the obvious quality drop.  As always, it is his fault.  He never reads these, so I can call him whatever I want.  He is a tuned out shipsman without a port of call.  Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

Adam's body is certainly something.  Jon's heart is TRULY filled with the sound of music, but he very much lives off of the pain of others.  Jon and Adam reminisce about animated movies of their childhoods, both Disney and Don- Bluthian.  Jon recommends Rick and Morty, and both of the hosts wish that Mike Meyers could do more stuff. The dudes learn about the rules for Road Runner cartoons, and Jon thinks that Tom and Jerry SHOULD NEVER TALK.
