Posted in Podcasts with tags , , , , , , on August 10, 2016 by Matthew VanDevander

This week’s episode of the dunceCast is a special Twin Peaks retrospective. David is absent, but we have a special guest in Jamie Ramirez. We discuss our overall thoughts about the show, go in depth on Fire Walk with Me, and manage to squeeze in some speculation about the upcoming season 3 of the show.

SPOILER WARNING: I would recommend only listening if you have seen both the series and the film.

Today we discuss some movies. Ones we like, and at least one we don’t. The first half of the podcast is a somewhat in-depth discussion of Mulholland Drive. I recommend only listening if you’ve already seen the film. (The discussion is from 5:55 to 34:20)

Experimentation reigns supreme on this week’s episode. We decide to engage in a collaborative world building exercise. Things sort of devolve and Matthew gets on a high horse. Hope you can get something out of this.

dunceCast Episode 48 – Learning to Eat Through a USB Port

Posted in Podcasts on June 15, 2016 by Matthew VanDevander

Apologies on being late. I came down with the flu and have been mostly in a delirium for a few days. This episode is pretty off the rails, but perhaps you will find it humorous. We discuss important topics such as the lifestyles of the rich and famous robot mexican overlords.

dunceCast Episode 47 – Roll up Some Fun!

Posted in Podcasts with tags , , , , , on May 17, 2016 by Matthew VanDevander

This is a particularly somber dunceCast for no particular reason. We talk about a couple of video games and try to avoid crying. The games are Dark Sadness 3 and Johnsonville’s Sadness Rolls.

dunceCast Episode 46 – BK vs M64. Fight!

Posted in Podcasts with tags , , , , , on May 10, 2016 by Matthew VanDevander

Because Matthew has been playing through Banjo-Kazooie again lately (an event you can watch yourself by backing the Patreon at the $5 level), he felt it reasonable to attempt an argument that it is a better game than it’s progenitor, Mario 64. Clearly this is a fool’s errand and must not be allowed to persist unabated, so David takes up the contrarian stance and the two duke it out. Which dunce’s dialectical dominance shall prevail today? Who can say, but we when compete in arbitrary thought experiments, you prevail! Or something.

Posted in Podcasts with tags , , , , , on May 3, 2016 by Matthew VanDevander

In typical duncery, in trying to solve an episode numbering problem, we make it worse. Still, this episode is the second part to last weeks treatise on travel. We reconvene and discuss the rest of David’s journey to the British Isles.
