  1. Why no, I'm not cringing and screaming internally about the time I met Jake at PAX West last year and we totally had a convo that awkwardly petered out when a different Campo/Thumbs fan showed up to talk to Jake while we were already talking. Edit: eventually the other fan finished saying what he wanted to say to Jake and then we went back to talking, but you can't really recover from that so it just became an awkward and mumbly convo on my part until I left.
  2. Chris being blown away at the existence of the SNES Classic, Sea of Thieves, and Jackbox party games just reminds me why they don't do Idle Thumbs anymore.
  3. RobotNick, aka Dr Breck-Man outside of the US.
  4. I definitely said "Ye gods! My brulee is ruined!" to myself as I listened to this episode.
  5. Important If True 50: 4468, Y'all

    Whenever I get hung up on an Idle Thumbs reference, I usually just have to Google it. I'm still trying to figure out where "grenade rolling down a hill" originated. They seem to immediately start using it as a reference to something earlier, but I can't find what that original earlier thing is.

    So you assumed yall was a wax house but then you hoisted yourself. This is super confusing to an outsider, btw.
  7. Important If True 50: 4468, Y'all

    I'll be dead in the ground before I recognize the Pittsburghian "yinz" for a 2nd person plural pronoun.
  8. Important If True 50: 4468, Y'all

    Remember when he tried to get "Sly Boots" over on you? Oddly enough, I've seen it pop up a few times lately. Maybe it's coming back into vogue?
  9. Important If True 50: 4468, Y'all

    I would say that's hella silly, y'all. (But in all honesty, I've listened to enough hours of people from Northern California podcasting over the years for some NorCal slang to get into my vocab. Similarly, I dated a girl from Texas for several years so I heard "y'all" quite a bit, though I only started using it fairly recently as it's gotten popular as the preferred non-gendered term for a group of people.
  10. The Nick Breckon bot technology has gotten really good lately.
  11. Every time I hear Nick and Chris talk about their old roommate, they definitely hate him but seem to vacillate between "he was okay but kinda weird" and "he is a boat stealing party starting coke fiend"
  12. Ah, from the comments it seems like they finally acknowledge the thing with Nick I've been asking about for weeks ever since Janel announced on Twitter that she was moving to Canada (I rightfully assumed Nick would be going with her) I feel like ending the podcast because Nick is moving away would have been the old, boring, safe thing to do. Important If True is anything but old, boring, and safe! I say forge onwards! What's Sean Vanaman up to anyway? Maybe we're in a time loop and you have to bring Steve Gaynor in for a while, then Nick, then Sean, then Danielle, then Nick again, etc. Chris has to move back and forth across the country a few times.
  13. Nick leaving SF again?
  14. Hey, so I saw on Twitter that Nick's GF is moving to Vancouver for work. Does this mean we have to dust off the ole "F Nick Breckon"? Sorry if this is a weird, personal question. I figure if they didn't want people to know they wouldn't have said anything.
  15. I was also familiar with said poop story, but could not remember where I had heard it. Also that wire Orthodox Jews use to signify a "house" is everywhere in NYC, and it's totally a loophole. Same as Orthodox Jews hiring someone not of the Jewish faith to turn their electrical appliances on/off, or having on elevator in their building that operates automatically on Friday nights so they aren't "operating machinery".
  16. Maybe Nick just assumed he was dreaming it in his ill video game haze.
  17. I mean, it makes sense. I like sneezing too because it feels good, but I also hate when I have sneezing fits where I can't stop. It's sorta like those people who have mysterious fits of sexual arousal and orgasm constantly to the point where it's painful and debilitating.
  18. File footage: Nick Breckon, age 9.
  19. I'm gonna miss this podcast. Having Spaff on was a breath of fresh air, which ironically is what the Thumbs feel killed the show originally (having too many guest hosts)
  20. Also regarding naming schemes in school, we had three kids named James in my elementary school. James Delaney, James Gasparino, and James Perry. We all just called them by their last names to differentiate, except for Perry, who refused to be referred to as such, and demanded to be called James. I mean, we ignored him and just called him Perry anyway, because he didn't get the rights to the name just because the other two weren't using it. Also he was a really big jerk and bully, so even though we were all shitty kids he deserved it. I think the first time I met someone who I referred to by a nickname that wasn't just a shortened version of their regular name was a college roommate who was from New Zealand, so he just went by Kiwi because he said people got his name wrong a lot. His real name wasn't hard to pronounce, and it was easily shortened to a nickname that would have been easy to say, but I didn't push it. Also I think he went to school with a lot of wealthy bullies who purposely made fun of his name, so I can see why he might take refuge in a nickname he chose.
  21. Chris always goes by Chris at work? That's not what I heard.
  22. Important If True 7: Human Behavior

    You know, I'm not even sure. This post was hastily tapped out and submitted on a subway train (much like the one where the saxaphone battle happened) for the short pocket of time where I had reception. It was just this kneejerk, gut reaction to post this once everyone started doing the "A Bug's Life doesn't actually exist" jokey gaslight thing to varying degrees. Like, 2016 was rough for all of us, and I've seen too many people do that for stuff in a serious way for things that actually matter, and I guess I got legit upset by Chris pretending that "A Bug's Life" wasn't a thing (cue people putting their virtual hand on my shoulder and saying "But CoolJammer00, A Bug's Life doesn't exist" like the world's most insipid version of The Game) It's silly that it bothered me, and sorry if I was being jerky. Please enjoy your wedding.
  23. Important If True 7: Human Behavior

    I can't tell how much of the Thumbs' new, "joking" insistence on things that aren't true is a commentary on the solipsistic and self centered nature of the Mandela Effect, and how much is them just finally mentally breaking down and fully submitting to 2017 and the rise of fake news.
  24. Idle Thumbs 304: The Game Shack

    Ooh, tons of bleeping in this episode for some reason I assume whatever it was has been excised from the stream recording?
  25. This is like that troll video back when everyone had Kinect hooked up to their XBones and someone made their XBL gamer tag "XboxShutdown" so people would freak out during games of COD
