    At this point, I have to treat these podcast episodes like music album releases. They take a long time to produce for one person, and I just can't churn them out fast enough. So, consider them quarterly installments from this point forward until something changes in our collective schedules here. 😁

    Anyhoo, we're back with our 50th episode! Alden and his best friend Wish join a couple of our cohorts on Discord (Jester and TiMO) to try and beat Doors for the first time. I join in as well, though I kept my expectations at rock bottom (I had never played before this episode recording).

    Beyond the game, here's what's been happening with us:


    Alden had hand surgery last Wednesday on one of his fingers and won't be able to write/do anything computer related till late next week.
    He's still crushing it grade-wise in 6th grade
    We started playing Battle Cats again and now have Dark Phono. We're also farming NP to try and upgrade some of our favorite ubers to 60 w/talents.
    Alden and Wish have been playing Dungeons and Dragons every weekend for the past couple of months. Their current adventure is about to meet it's dramatic conclusion with a final battle with the 'Alchemist', a high level magician/illusionist who's been pulling all the strings in the background of their adventure so far.

    Oh, and Alden's soccer team is 0-8 going into their final two games. Alden's been doing decent at goalie, but a good portion of the team is completely new to soccer and they've been getting beaten pretty bad. Still, they attend practices, have fun with each other and make the most of it.

    If you'd like to join our dead chat Discord where no one seems to be around, you're more than welcome to. You never know what's going to happen there, and you get an incredibly fun free gift... a lucky day of your choosing:

    AARR #49 - iTunes Reviews from 1834 (or whenever we started podcasting)

    AARR #49 - iTunes Reviews from 1834 (or whenever we started podcasting)

    Greetings from the hot state of Texas!

    This release will be a short, review only episode, with the bigger one coming later in August.  This one didn’t require thirty thousand years of production, though my microphone cut out right when we started recording.  As such, you’ll see me boosting the audio in post-production and hear me hitting our stupid Yamaha sound board with a pool noodle just to get it working properly.

    In the meantime, we go through reviews… kind of.  At the time of the recording, iTunes was doing its usual glitch-fest and decided to randomize all of the reviews we’ve ever gotten, all the way back to 2019!  We went with it and reflected on our time during the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as a few reviews we had never seen before.  Hopefully if we do this again, we won’t run into this sort of nonsense.

    So, a brief upload before starting production on a rather involved 2 hour gaming session with Alden and his friend Wish (previously Romo).  Looking forward to swimming through that soup of ‘what are they talking about?’ kind of thing.

    And while you’re trying to listen to me talk through a tunnel on this episode, feel free to click on the link below for some random banter about memes, fan art and a tree bot that we occasionally water from time to time:

    Thanks again to Jester's for giving us an image to post for our review episode!  I’m still waiting for you to try an AI image generator.  I think our Discord will be saturated with experiments when he does.

    Thanks for listening, and we’ll see you in a few weeks.

    AARR #48 - 💀 Item Asylum 💀 with Jester, Romo, YouSawNothing and Tyson, Dallas Library and Vacation Plans for the Summer

    AARR #48 - 💀 Item Asylum 💀 with Jester, Romo, YouSawNothing and Tyson, Dallas Library and Vacation Plans for the Summer

    Well hello there!

    We've successfully figured out a way to release an episode shorter than six months. In involves recording the entire thing and then doing 40-60 seconds to edit it every day. The end result is an episode so overproduced and filled with sound effects that I could probably post 20+ clips on social media. Hell, I don't even remember what the beginning of the episode even sounds like at this point.

    But rest assured, you're going to get plenty of Item Asylum play-by-play in this episode. Whether it's Jester rambling about everything and anything to Romo speaking thirty feet away from the microphone, we have you covered. Oh, and YouSawNothing and Tyson join with two dollar microphones crammed into their armpits as they shout over everyone during some pretty active game play.

    One last thing... the sound effects you're going to hear in this episode are taken from a wide variety of games. The audio clips are also from a wide variety of movies and TV shows. As a result, I've probably put this podcast in jeopardy with the sheer amount of copyright violations I may have committed (I really don't know). But I'm sure Jester yelling 'COPYRIGHT' over and over again has cleared me of any wrong doing.

    By the way, if you've been listening to this podcast for the 3+ years we've been publishing our stuff and you still haven't joined our Discord, you're doing yourself a disservice. Click on the link below for some endless (but temporary) happiness and joy:

    And this episode, we're featuring Jester's artwork for our podcast! Thank you very much for creating it for us. You really do have a talent for art. Keep at it please. 😁👍

    Oh, and if you're interested in submitting your own avatar/logo for the show, stop by the Discord and bedazzle us with your amazing applications of art.

    Thanks for listening! See you next time.

    PS - Our apologies to Tyson for not allowing him to sign off. I didn't realize we had forgotten him in our haste to wrap up the show. We'll give him a proper signoff the next time he joins us.

    AARR #47 - 🔨 Flee The Facility! 🔨 with Romo, STARR tests and elaborate essays about substitute teachers 😁

    Well, well well... it only took six months to get this episode done! At this rate, we should hit 100 episodes by the time Alden is 24 years old. That or I can make a million dollars and start doing this full time. Or get an entire production team to make it happen. Maybe both?

    Anyway... in this episode, we get into Silent Library, STARR tests that are currently happening for reading, math and science (which Alden is rather stressed about), essays about trampoline safety and substitute teachers, teaching Alden to pursue his interests and the end of Battle Cats (yep, Alden's done with it). Then, we meet up with Romo and play a few rounds of Flee the Facility! Apparently, I can't find a computer to hack to save my life (literally).

    We're still active on Discord whenever Alden isn't completely immersed on his Switch with the newest Mario Rabbids. If you  If you want to take a peek, you know what to do:

    Also, thanks to Oli Down Under for the new logo! We'll be rotating these out as fans of the show produce their own artwork for it. If you're interested in putting in your latest Midjourney creation or hand drawn masterpiece, stop by the Discord and share with us.



    As always, thanks for listening to the show and we hope you are doing well. 👍

    AARR #46 - ♜ Tower Defense Simulator ♜, Part 3 w/Tyson + Battle Cats seeding tricks and a new dog! 🐶

    AARR #46 - ♜ Tower Defense Simulator ♜, Part 3 w/Tyson + Battle Cats seeding tricks and a new dog! 🐶

    I guess we're at a 'once a month' pace of sending these out, which is fine.  With Alden's school in full-swing, there may be time to do additional episodes... but no promises.  My terrible track record speaks for itself. 😁

    In this episode, we talk about Alden's friend who seems to be going a bit nuts, Battle Cats seeding, our new dog and finally, a third venture into everyone's favorite game... Tower Defense Simulator with all the new updates, graphics and frustrating nerfing that the developers seem to be doing with every tower unit they scrutinize.  Special thanks to Tyson for joining and playing with us for another episode!

    Finally, we've been popping into the Discord every so often.  Yes, there are the usual postings of 'dead chat' and non-activity, but dems da breaks.  It usually consists of Alden asking if anyone is on voice chat to get a game going, and that's it.  I started a Battle Cats channel and have been posting some custom game videos there.  If you want to take a peek, you know what to do:

    We'll see you in a month or so.  Hopefully sooner than 30 days.  Post interesting (but child friendly) memes in the Discord to remind me to publish.  It helps. 😁

    Oh, and by the way... a nice little 'Heya Hiya!' to Oli Down Under.  Thanks for listening to our show every so often.  Hope you are doing well. :)

    AARR #45 - WHERE HAVE WE BEEN?!?! - San Diego Trip, BC Updates, Live Draws and Cuss-Fest

    AARR #45 - WHERE HAVE WE BEEN?!?! - San Diego Trip, BC Updates, Live Draws and Cuss-Fest

    Well it's been a LONG time hasn't it? :D

    The explanation is simple.  Alden was simply enjoying his summer break and I was busy making sure he was enjoying summer break.  We did actually record two other episodes but I haven't had any time to produce them (see the above about being with Alden on summer break).  So, there are more coming.  But for now, know that we're back and we'll be releasing more episodes in the near future. 

    And I know we haven't been hanging out in the Discord as much, but apparently the time zones for Australia and Dallas are not compatible with one another.  That and we only seem to be able to come on at 8:00 pm at night to game for 30 minutes.  But hey, at least we message back.

    Speaking of which, why not pop by our Discord for five minutes and never come back to it again?  It's fun! 😁👍

    Thanks for being patient with us during our 16 billion year hiatus.  Hope you enjoy the episode, and we'll see you in the next millennia!
