  1. BDPE Episode 89

    July 29, 2011 by BLAKEBUCK

    Sure, pills everybody knows internet funnyman Blake Buck. Professional podcaster, cheap standup comedian, unhealthy and top pick of his graduating class for ‘Most Likely to Become and Alcoholic’. But few people know of his forerunner, the legendary Ben Buck.

    In many ways, Ben Buck is like the beta version of Blake Buck.  While similar at first glance, he’s not quite as quick, doesn’t have as many features, and is definitely more bulky. But then again, Blake is more often covered in bugs.  At the very least, Ben Buck makes a fine substitute for William Miller this week, who is still trapped in a box of Captain Crunch.

    Also this week, Justin Fic and Blake Buck reminisce on some of their favorite classic arcade games, and discuss how perhaps games today have lost touch with the importance of controls and innovation that defined the arcade era.

  4. BDPE Episode 86

    Sometimes, visit web things just don’t work like their supposed to.  Like signing up for Playstation Network and 6 months later somebody’s using your credit card to buy  two hundred copies of the movie Hackers.  Or worse.  Like doing a podcast with an incompetent cohost who fails to record his audio properly.

    So, discount there’s no episode 77.  Gone forever.

    Sometimes, health
    things get busted.  RSS feeds, show notes, podcasts, etc.  It happens.  Sometimes even the BDPE hosts themselves get busted – like Justin Fic getting fired or Blake Buck getting evicted.  These things happen, and can have a dire effect on the podcast postings.

    But, everything appears to be running smoothly now!  Though Episode 85 is forever lost to the ether, 86 is here, and 87 is right around the corner.
