Friends From The Internet (general)
No excuses this time, it's just slow coz we're slow! But no longer! It's officially time for the DOWNTOWN NEMURU ULTIMATE ANIME SLEEPYTIME CHALLENGE SUMMER 2018 EDITION! Hold onto your seats, because it's time for a life or death struggle where Graziella's mettle is put to the absolute test as she wends and winds a labyrinth of real and user-submitted anime titles in an quest to determine the very essence of Reality and Falsehood! With these things I have a note that says "Always include a Fate title real or fake," and I both don't think there has ever been an anime season where there wasn't SOME Fate thing, and I also don't think that I could ever write an anime title that rivals what Fate titles actually are IRL. You think you could do this stuff, that anyone could do this stuff, but it takes a very specific kind, I guess.

UmU

It's a new pod! Come with us as we explore the worlds of Actual Play via the mechanism of Legacy of Dragonholt,  wherein we flex our improvisational muscles and my mixing of audio is put to the absolute limit. Featuring the community collaboration of discord members Timecrash, DG_Nick, and DunkmasterKyouko for this really bad bit that YES OF COURSE I'M GONNA KEEP DOING IT WHO DO YOU THINK I AM.

Listen Up!

It's Revengecast, the only podcast on the internet willing to give you the STRAIGHT POOP on Jeanne D'Arc (Dark (or, "Jalter")'s VITO SPLENDIDO and YES I DID LOOK THAT UP, GRAZIELLA.

So what's going on with the island these days? Oh who fuckin knows. It's more complicated than Lost up in this piece. By which I mean relationships become fractious over the slightest amount of misdirection from known untrustworthy sources for the sake of drama and then resolve and reconcile within the span of the next scene. In this, our shortest Revengecast to date, I'm not really sure what we talked about because we were so worn out that I'm not sure we talked about anything at all. Look I'm really upset that we, with the subtraction of gacha journalism, for the first time have recorded a Revengecast that's shorter than the episode length itself and for some reason that's getting me really emotional. Also, I'd make a joke here about not having time to finish this blog post because I have to grind my Revenant Weapons before the Guild Wars event ends but y'all know I finished that last night already.

Huh.... we talked about Rage of Bahamut last time too, I guess...

Belayed by three weeks of indecision and laziness, not even the cataclysmic arrival of the dread GENITORI can stop the DOWNTOWN NEMURU ULTIMATE ANIME SLEEPYTIME CHALLENGE SPRING 2018 EDITION! Hold onto your seats, because it's time for a life or death struggle where Graziella's mettle is put to the absolute test as she wends and winds a labyrinth of real and user-submitted anime titles in an quest to determine the very essence of Reality and Falsehood! Watch out folks, because we got some real hum-dingers here, and what starts out as a commanding lead quickly because something else entirely. The winds of fate are fickle, Seaman Graziella, especially when our usual rogues gallery of contributors are at the helm!! >:o (also i'm serious about stealing that reverse werewolf thing no take backs :3) and remember what Ken Levine taught us, there's always a man, there's always a lighthouse, there's always DAMN IS THAT CATGIRLS ARM A BOAR I LOVE FATE NOW   By the way!

It's Revengecast, the only podcast on the internet we occasionally remember to record and release!

What's going on on the island this time? Well let me tell you what's NOT going on on the island... of MANHATTAN! Because that is where we supposedly are and yet that is in no possible universe where we actually are perhaps to the greatest extent it's ever been aside from all the times they forget to crop the palm trees out of the frame.

Information is the seat of power, they say, and thus Voulez is the base of this pyramid, which takes place primarily there and, as intimated above, definitely at the Metropolitan Opera House which, as Victoria Grayson herself says, absolutely cannot afford any wild cards, especially not ones potentially named Amanda OR Fauxmanda (actually just kidding Vicky isn't operating at anywhere near that level and Graz is out at some Court Watch Public Action Keep The District Attorney Accountable Thing and so she can't stop me from saying for a third time that Victoria is definitely sniffing up the right tree with the wrong ass... or... it's the right tree and it's the right ass in as much as it's her ass but normally you don't sniff at trees with your ass is my point and thus the metaphor is... Hey look man my metaphors aren't on trial here and anyway I'm just trying to distract you from the severe bummer that is the Tragic Plight Of The Hokkaido Wolf and besides that it's been a long week?? ...the week we recorded this... which was not this week...

Occasionally we're at Nolan's house with his new roommate, the rejected extra from Swordfish staring Halle Berry and we get to see Jack in a cave man suit which is always nice.

SAY BYE PANZA.

It's Revengecast, the only podcast on the internet with the temerity to split a podcast about not-so-hit TV show Revenge into two episodes! And geez, with the amount of Patrick we're dealing with her, can you blame us???

 

Aw I'm just funnin' you Pod, you're all right. But I will need you to board this jet to Italy, send your minority report holo-message to Victoria, and never, ever look back.

 

What else is happening? Preferable stuff that doesn't involve Patrick or trying to redeem Patrick or trying to pretend like anyone watching this show could possibly care about Patrick or trying to act like there's some sort of moral equity between what Nolan blundered into (accidentally revealing his monster father) versus what Patrick blundered into Nolan (q.v. blunt objects referred to in episodes prior). Well if you can't stand all that stuff above--and we sure won't!--how about a little bit of the old Drown-itis! Because, as we've discovered, I think, kind of, that's the only way to get your memories back on this GD island (I guess it is near the sea) or achieve any sort of spiritual or emotional closure (tell that to father paul, am I right :o) and that leads us to dark truths about the practicality of Ronald Takeda's revenge plan vis-a-vis his revenge teaching method that leaves a lot to be desired and, frankly, practically ends the podcast right then and there. Some truths are too galling. 

 

Also Stevie Grayson is here.
