Shparky2197: Good Morning all! Who's ready for some Rhythm?
Shparky2197: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Rhythm Cafe (Heather and Ian continue their never-ending quest to play ALL THE RHYTHM GAMES! Game: Beat Blitz) at Sun 04:00 PM PDT (13m from now).
Shparky2197: Oh good, I got that right!
Metric_Furlong: going to be honest, it's about what I expected
Metric_Furlong: i.e. kind of tedius
TehAmelie: no Celeste for me. oh well, still so many thousands of games
CAKHost: My brain wants to read the title as "Beatz Blitz" but I don't think that actually sounds great out loud...
Earthenone: !findquote blitz
LRRbot: Could not find any matching quotes.
TehAmelie: i seem to have fallen into an alternate universe where Ford Harrison is a famous actor
Juliamon: Wanna Blitz was more of a highlights meme
Metric_Furlong: like, not *frustrating*, per se (although it's notable less clean than super meat boy)
SaxPython: lrrSHINE
Metric_Furlong: but, well, it's a twitch platformer
TehAmelie: the whole quote should be "Blitz?"
TehAmelie: we'll remember that without the quote database's help
RockPusher: !quote heather
LRRbot: Quote #4845: "Why did space get mad at me?" —Heather [2018-03-25]
RockPusher: That's space's secret — it's always mad at everyone.
TehAmelie: that's why we need Kerbal Space Program, to fight the war against space
Metric_Furlong: actually, maybe it could be 10% tighter, momentum physics feel a little floaty
Shparky2197: Oh man, I was just going through a rewatch of Countdown to Infinity. It's still such a good podcast, Bront.
TehAmelie: so, a janky platformer with demanding jumps? sounds less than desirable
Metric_Furlong: oh, nvm, am stuck in what looks like an optional challenge room
CAKHost: When I was playing Celeste, I remember looking up speedruns to try and get an idea of how to progress at parts and that game gets crazy (both in the mechanics and what the speedrunner does to get to the goals..)
CAKHost: Personally, I'm glad I played it all the way to the end but I don't think I will go further than that.
Metric_Furlong: yeah, only way to get out said room was to restart the entire section
Metric_Furlong: this was talked about as a Game of the Year conter in 2018
Earthenone: lrrSIG
CAKHost: lrrSIG !
TehAmelie: it looks good and has fun themes, i guess that counts a lot
TehAmelie: lrrSIG also
mtvcdm subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 104 months!
mtvcdm: But why do we have to beat the blitz? Why can't we be friends with the blitz?
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, mtvcdm! (Today's storm count: 1)
Juliamon: Blitz Did Nothing Wrong
KeytarCat: Like Halo 3, one of the greats, but not the best in any specific category
mtvcdm: Blitz is innocent of all charges
KeytarCat: Er, "halo 3:..."
Shparky2197: Anyone getting audio?
Juliamon: Nope
CAKHost: Nope
Earthenone: now we are
CAKHost: But I might have my volume low...
Juliamon: Just in time for the drop!
RockPusher: [wubbins intensifies]
CAKHost: Now I hear it!
Shparky2197: Thank you kindly. I'd been troubleshooting my speaker, assuming that there was
Metric_Furlong: @TehAmelie plus it's a twitch platform that's Hard, which a certain contigent of games people get a bit weird about
Metric_Furlong: or did at the time anyway
Earthenone: its hard and art, so its darksouls got it
Mischievous_Catgeist: hiya everyone
Metric_Furlong: "Unique Feature of Video Games" type of stuff
Earthenone: well the darksouls of platformers
TehAmelie: hoho
Juliamon: Rhythm Cafe usually plays the game's menu tunes rather than the normal BGC, because it's usually good
kusinohki: meows..
kusinohki: mostly lurking again today...
KeytarCat: It was a pivotal game for a lot of people for reasons beyond but including the mechanics
TehAmelie: Dark Souls could be the Dark Sols of platformers. it's so hard to even jump
TehAmelie: hello!
GhostValv: hello~
mtvcdm: Ian wins!
Metric_Furlong: side note: bitterly funny to me how Gamers will repeatedly dismiss non reflex-testing games as 'pretentious' but treat Bennett Foddy waxing lyrical about how 'being hard' is this transcendantally important feature of the medium as being 'just common sense'
CAKHost: Hello
Shparky2197: That was a pretty good sustain
SquareDotCube: Short a stooge
CAKHost: Hello [Harmonic]
mtvcdm: !patreon
LRRbot: 2735 patrons for a total of $21,273.98 per month.
Metric_Furlong: @KeytarCat yeah, I'm aware. story seems very emotion heavy + whole game has vaguely trans vibes

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, letfireraindown! (Today's storm count: 2)
Juliamon: (psst lrrSPOOPY )
Metric_Furlong: anyway, restarted the section and found the actual direction I should have gone
Earthenone: julia wants you to interact with social media
mtvcdm: !mastodon
LRRbot: LoadingReadyRun is now on Mastodon! You can find them (reposting from the Twitter account for the time being) at, and LRRMtG at
Juliamon: I was trying to be subtle
Mischievous_Catgeist: here for some fun times while i wait for a flower to bloom.
Juliamon: [x] doubt
mtvcdm: Social media is still important. Twitter maybe less so than before.
mtvcdm: !discord
LRRbot: LRR has an official Discord server! And you don't even need to be subbed or anything! You can join here:
LRRTwitter: @loadingreadyrun> Time for Rhythm Cafe and by gosh this game has a Ankh as an Achievement. Are we back on our Mozart? NO! It's time for Beat Blitz! 📷 ||
James_the_Dabbler: What about chicken wire
iris_of_ether: ""Freshness""
mtvcdm: The LRR Discord: the Saran Wrap of the LRR community.
GhostValv: this kills the americans
mtvcdm: !cw
LRRbot: This game contains, or we have found it to contain, material that may be upsetting to some of our viewers. If that content is a problem for you, it's okay to not watch this stream. Self-care is more important.
azureHaights: Bass? Where?
Sarah_Serinde: Whamjangle is a good word
azureHaights: Whamjangle, and the more visceral whargarbl
KeytarCat: Is video quality potato for everyone else or is it just me?
Juliamon: Just you
KeytarCat: hmm
KeytarCat: ty
Juliamon: Audio's kinda high though
Texan_Reverend: Indeed @juliamon
Juliamon: Much nicer
mtvcdm: Sounds good to me.
RockPusher: balance good
TehAmelie: i found a twinkie in an import store the other day. it got squished in my backpack, but still tasted fine when peeled out of the wrapping. seems like a metaphor for this saran wrapped US
CAKHost: Yep!
Texan_Reverend: That's great!
Shparky2197: *thumbs up*
jessieimproved: Is there a screen shake adjust?
RockPusher: ♫ We can keyboard if we want to, we can leave our mouse behind… ♫
GhostValv: :O
MWGNZ: FBtouchdown FBtouchdown FBtouchdown
Dog_of_Myth: FBtouchdown
Juliamon: *snort*
CAKHost: Is it a ghost?!
CAKHost: Very MegaMan death animations
mtvcdm: !holes
LRRbot: Did somebody mention classic young-adult action-adventure movie Holes??
Shparky2197: And clipped
Juliamon: This is very OG Bit.Trip Runner
Juliamon: but yeah, the effects are a bit much
Earthenone: game is loud visually
Juliamon: that pulsing is tough
LordZarano: The whole frame of the game pulsating is a lot
terribleplan: The effects are a lot...
DaxStrife: Thank you, the screen effects are giving me eye strain even on the stream.
Shparky2197: !clip
LRRbot: If you see something funny or particularly noteworthy, make a Clip of it! Your clip could appear in a fortnightly video or be seen at (Please give your clips descriptive names if you want them to be seen!)
TehAmelie: it sounds just like it looks, something unified theme something
mtvcdm: I think this is just how the game is.
Juliamon: soooo yeah, take that photosensitivity warning to heart
KeytarCat: do we need a new game already? /j
mtvcdm: If this is too much for you, might just want to cut out on this one.
CAKHost: Ooo coin slot
RockPusher: PrideGive lrrCIRCLE PrideTake
Juliamon: The death is also a little slow for this style of game
putz12a: Maybe the effects are tied to the graphics quality?
jessieimproved: I'm not able to look at this screen directly (it's on my second). I might have to bow out. Have fun everyone lrrSHINE
CAKHost: Barry knew how to surround a giant angry pill bug.
Juliamon: this game desperately needs colourblind settings. that dark section with the green on black was hard for me to see and I have GOOD eyes
mtvcdm: Game not great on accessibility.
neogetz: Definitely feels like rhythm games as a genre have a real accessibility issue. So few games have options
TehAmelie: how many different games can you make with one beat? would be great
Juliamon: The tunes are good though!
RockPusher: benginDance benginDance benginDance
CAKHost: This isn't like a Temple of 1000 Spikes is it? Assuming I got that name right...
NoOne_OfConsequence: Seems like a good part of this game is knowing when NOT to push the button despite your isntinct.
CAKHost: 1001 Spikes is the game I was thinking of.
DefianceFalcon: 184 out of 182?
mtvcdm: They are?
bruiserhammerfist: My wife and I watched totally spies when we were younger. Was a great show
Metric_Furlong: why, have there been new fetishes invented? Kappa
BrowneePoints: hollywood sucks that's why
CAKHost: I feel I heard that a few years ago... Maybe my brain is just making memories again.
mtvcdm: The Compact Laser Scene
bruiserhammerfist: Futurama will never die, just every couple years we get new episodes
SquareDotCube: Gen Z kids aren't kids anymore
Mischievous_Catgeist: @Metric_Furlong there will be with the new episodes
RockPusher: The 20y nostalgia cycle
Bellpei: Millenials are moving into their 30s and are therefore a nostalgia demographic? Despite the fact that we are living in perpetual nostalgia?
laundreydhull: @BrowneePoints again!? Why not keep something new out for longer?
mtvcdm: Oh no, they went Virtual Boy
TehAmelie: i liked the second time Futurama ended, with the fourth movie? seemed like it should have ended there
mtvcdm: Never go Virtual Boy
bruiserhammerfist: @tehamelie is that when they lived their life together in a time loop?
Sarah_Serinde: Yes it did :D
Sarah_Serinde: And/or on Friday's stream?
TehAmelie: it was go off into a strange parallel universe, i think
TehAmelie: it's been a while tbh
Sarah_Serinde: I think you brought it up while we were playing golf and looking at an elevation map
SaxPython: This makes me want a rhythm game with the VVVVV soundtrack
RockPusher: Sarah is correct
Sarah_Serinde: Haha thanks RockPusher
mtvcdm: !homestreams
LRRbot: Crew homestreams: Adam: | Alex: | Ben Ulmer: | Cameron: | Cori and Ian: | Heather: | James: | Jeremy White: | Kathleen: | Matt Wiggins: | Nelson: | Serge: | Wheeler:
adept_nekomancer: @SaxPython I was just thinking that this very much reminds me of VVVVVV.
Sarah_Serinde: We can't play that one when I'm joining from home because I don't Playstation
Sarah_Serinde: So it's fun to do it when I visit
108 raiders from benjamin_wheeler have joined!
frank_the_great: Howdy from Ben's chat
mtvcdm: Hi Rodeo!
mtvcdm: !cw
LRRbot: This game contains, or we have found it to contain, material that may be upsetting to some of our viewers. If that content is a problem for you, it's okay to not watch this stream. Self-care is more important.
RockPusher: wheelerMuldcb wheelerY wheelerH
TheAinMAP: twitchRaid twitchRaid twitchRaid twitchRaid
Bellpei: Can't beat this Final Fantasy Superboss... Guess I'll never know these character details.
Redshift2k5: i step away for one minute and wheeler leaves me :(
CAKHost: For some, this should be 2nd monitor content
frank_the_great: Oh, this is like Geometry Dash. My brother used to love that game as a kid
TehAmelie: i like bronze
bruiserhammerfist: Did Ian make this game?
adept_nekomancer: It seems pretty generous with the checkpointing.
Bellpei: When your home is a star sometimes you gotta get strong... even when you're bad.
CAKHost: Actually putting this on the second monitor is great for me but now I can't read chat well unless I have my enhance equipped (I have reader clips I can attatch to my glasses I call enhance)
TehAmelie: you could undock chat
mtvcdm: I note the death counter for a level goes to 5 digits.
frank_the_great: Perfectly balanced, as all things should be
RandomTrivia: Hi friends! lrrHEART
Bellpei: Phantom Menaces?
adept_nekomancer: gamma radiation is the danger rainbow
RockPusher: gabyLul
CAKHost: This is much better. Thanks TehAmelie!
RockPusher: Who knows what lies live in the heart of Heather. The Shadow knows. lunarj1Heart
TehAmelie: i forget about that option all the time
korvys: I remember the microscope that blinds people, cause it kinda freaked me out as a kid
TehAmelie: hmm are we a screw seen from the side?
Painfully_Dyslexic: it's a little funny that podcasts have brought back radio plays
bruiserhammerfist: I've recently found twilight zone radio shows. I've been listening to that ever since
Bellpei: I listened to a lot of Mercury Theatre with Orson Welles that way.
TemporallyAwry: Bestagon PrideUwu
TehAmelie: now remembering the last part of the Sandman audio drama should come out sometime soon :o
adept_nekomancer: Imagine a hexagon on a frictionless plane
TehAmelie: it's so rare when you can skip a beat and not just die, we should cherish those moments
milk_the_cow_to_earn_gems: Has rhythm cafe ever done geometry dash?
BrowneePoints: Pascal
korvys: The Horse?
Mischievous_Catgeist: pascal
BrowneePoints: the Chameleon was Pascal
BrowneePoints: horse was Maximus
Painfully_Dyslexic: Rango was a weird movie
CAKHost: Pascal sounds wise, maaan
frank_the_great: It's basically this
TemporallyAwry: !findquote wiki
LRRbot: Quote #2126: "I believe the wiki!" —Graham [2016-03-21]
Sarah_Serinde: I think Foxmar tracks that stuff too
mtvcdm: I find no evidence of a Geometry Dash stream on the YouTubes.
Mischievous_Catgeist: !badadvice
LRRbot: Take the Master Key.
adept_nekomancer: has entries for Rhythm Cafe going back to March of 2015
LadyMCHall subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 11 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, LadyMCHall! (Today's storm count: 3)
CAKHost: What did you do to the Master Key, LRRBot? D:
KeytarCat: Tempo, probably. It was Swift earlier
milk_the_cow_to_earn_gems: The wiki has no mention of geometry dash
Dog_of_Myth: LUL
Juliamon: CAKHost It's a Dark Souls reference, and it's often advised not to take it
CAKHost: Oh? I thought that was a recommended starter item... Unless the joke is to make sure people are unaware of that key's use.
Juliamon: (because if you are new to the game it makes it even easier to stumble into particularly deadly areas)
mtvcdm: I'll mention once again, the game's death counter goes up to 5 digits. *Per level.*
Bellpei: Is that a challenge to get up to 6 digits long?
neogetz: That's some serious dedication to use those 5 digits
CAKHost: Oooh, yeah that would make sense Juliamon.
TehAmelie: the joke is you should not take the master key unless you know when to ignore that advice
CAKHost: Fair! XD
Sky_Kast: how's the heather and Ian and HI
3and4fifths: The colour of magic?
RockPusher: tiltyhPLS tiltyhEXTREME
Sarah_Serinde: Yeah I haven't really tried it but I don't think I want it :D
CAKHost: Yeah I'm good I don't need to know other's sex lives. :|
TemporallyAwry: For the people who do - there are podcasts for that now too. And I'm not one of those people.
Sarah_Serinde: Reading it, sure (if it's reasonably well-written). Listening? Ehhh
mtvcdm: I just like having the physical copy.
RockPusher: Since the discussion popped it into my head - this might be some childhood nostalgia for some:
Sarah_Serinde: 100%
KeytarCat: Love me some spoken word smut
Painfully_Dyslexic: I like reading but being dyslexic it's like running a marathon, and I've never really gelled with audio books
Sky_Kast: true blogs aren't books unless they intend on the otherwise
Sarah_Serinde: pfft
TehAmelie: remember 50 Shades of Grey narrated by Gilbert Gottfried?
Sarah_Serinde: Then you make sure their place is big enough for *you* to move into
gualdhar: I feel personally attacked
TemporallyAwry: !findquote books
LRRbot: Quote #4906: "Never read a book." —Adam [2018-04-21]
NotCainNorAbel: I have moved my library once. It has not gotten smaller. i will never move again
CAKHost: I mean I know I got to clean out some books from my shelves.
KeytarCat: @Painfully_Dyslexic Do any of the "dyslexia friendly" fonts actually help?
KeytarCat: 🔥
KeytarCat: but for warmth, not hate
neogetz: I want to read more paper books but open dyslexic Font and turning my screen green help massively with my dyslexia so I mostly read on a tablet
CAKHost: I have this old edition of Art History from my last in-person college and I don't really need it anymore.
GDwarble: Experiencing feelings on a 30 second broadcast delay
Sky_Kast: how strong is the strobe
Painfully_Dyslexic: @Painfully_Dyslexic no. not for me any way
Sarah_Serinde: Sometimes feelings are really inconvenient in the moment so you put them away for later
tod_vom_himmel: is it just me or is 90% of the difficulty of this game just trying to make out the obstacles from the backgrounds?
Sarah_Serinde: I have a bunch of those around me
mtvcdm: Invert is just Light Mode
TemporallyAwry: !findquote value
LRRbot: Quote #3986: "I can't calculate the value of this friendship" —Heather [2017-02-10]
adept_nekomancer: Sometimes the value is in no longer having it clutter up your space
mtvcdm: Sometimes you just need to go through a closet and say 'Screw the Royal Guarantee'
3and4fifths: Hide them in the walls of the new moonbase?
Sarah_Serinde: Sometimes the value is not having them taking up space and not needing to spend a bunch of time and energy on them
Juliamon: I think the walls are already up now 3and4fifths
mtvcdm: Oh, yeah, that too. If you want new stuff, sometimes something else has t make way.
Shparky2197: This is what I love. First livestream for months and you're already inspiring me to be more thoughtful with my belongings. You guys rock out loud.
CAKHost: I want to make a little 'apartment' display for all the digimon I bought because A. I have so many now and B. I really want to make something out of plastic mesh again.
Shparky2197: First livestream I've seen in months
Juliamon: I have... so much manga that I want to get rid of so I can reclaim those shelves, and don't know how to go about it (because books are heavy)
rosesmcgee: good motivation is where you find it
mtvcdm: I just went with Bathroom Readers. Which I still collect.
RockPusher: benign books with bad association
TemporallyAwry: !findquote chicken
LRRbot: Quote #8242: "This might be were the chicken poop comes in." —Paul [2022-09-21]
LordZarano: !findquote soup
LRRbot: Quote #7219: "Soup is over, but there are other fluids." —Ian [2020-09-20]
Mischievous_Catgeist: yeah everyone in my middle school and highschool read the chicken soup book.... i just walked around with trashy romance in book covers to hide the covers
KeytarCat: Oh no, the party bus is circling the block!
CAKHost: My memory is hazy
Juliamon: We have a couple Chicken Soup books and I genuinely don't know where they came from
CAKHost: Anyways I got to head to bed soon. So thanks for the stream everyone and good night!
KeytarCat: My family always found them kinda sad
Juliamon: Probably the freecycle table at the dump
mtvcdm: Just setting up a lawn chair and watching the rhythm do laps around the clock.
kusinohki: saw "terraformers" on the schedule and thought it was "terraforming mars" for afk...
mtvcdm: Wave at the rhythm as it passes again.
Juliamon: You are not the first to make that mistake
Metric_Furlong: probably won't be the last either
Juliamon: I am finding this entertaining now
mtvcdm: There it goes again! Hi rhythm!
TehAmelie: the rhythm has got the zoomies
Mischievous_Catgeist: its the icecream truck just driving around the block
TemporallyAwry: !venga
LRRbot: I set my sail. Fly, the wind it will take me, back to my home, sweet home. Lie on my back, clouds are makin' way for me. The Venga Bus is comin' home, sweet home.
mtvcdm: Select a tour!
Metric_Furlong: the degree to which that doesn't scan annoys me more than it probably should
Mischievous_Catgeist: !venga
LRRbot: And you may find yourself behind the wheel of a large Venga Bus. And you may find yourself in a beautiful disco, with a beautiful party. And you may ask yourself, "Well... how did I get from New York to San Francisco?"
mtvcdm: Do not attempt to high-five the driver as they come around for another lap.
Metric_Furlong: although to be fair I say about everything lyric rewrite that doesn't scan, so
mtvcdm: Is this the LRRMans?
Metric_Furlong: you can probably disregard it :p
Juliamon: !gant
adept_nekomancer: @mtvcdm Only if this is the 90-minute engine penalty
mtvcdm: Bye rhythm bus!
Mischievous_Catgeist: now we get on the rhythm bus
mtvcdm: It also helps when one of the new titles runs us a while.
BrowneePoints: isn't there that musical rpg too
Metric_Furlong: and who knows, maybe Mozart Requiem will get a sequel? Kappa
Painfully_Dyslexic: @Metric_Furlong we could only hope
Metric_Furlong: alternate titles for anime that don't make any sense for the purposes of looking them up? wouldn't know anything about that
Metric_Furlong: live nice or die nasty
BrowneePoints: depends on where it is from
BrowneePoints: green curries are very floral
Metric_Furlong: green is usually on the hotter end, iirc?
Metric_Furlong: more so than red or yellow
Sky_Kast: new game jam

BrowneePoints: HA
Rourke9: good joke
BrowneePoints: PAPYRUS(except that was Egypt)
RockPusher: tiltyhEXTREME tiltyhPLS tiltyhEXTREME
mtvcdm: Oh, yes, there was Ea-Nasir lore drop recently.
iris_of_ether: @kumatsu It's so good!
egonomadic: Green fire? Always knew ian was secretly maleficent the whole time...
LordZarano: @mtvcdm How!?
KeytarCat: This is what peak performance looks like
SaxPython: Beat Blitz 100%
mtvcdm: The British Museum happens to have more of his stuff but haven't translated it all.
kumatsu: @mtvcdm They found another letter where he was running a protection racket with his business partner, whose name translates as Mister Short
TehAmelie: the original Big Short
Sarah_Serinde: He would be so proud
mrverbal: @kumatsu so it's the film get shorty?
LordZarano: Ooh I look forward to this being read out next DB
Juliamon: Now all of the future will know what he's done
SaxPython: that miss is so BS, you are definitely landing on it
Sarah_Serinde: lol of course a screenshot from tumblr
mrverbal: Oh, I'd be shocked if no one (not right now, but in general) was trying to pitch such a movie
SquareDotCube: Turns out how to be remembered forever is to just write your deeds on a clay tablet
noSmokeFire: Mummy 5: Ea Nasir's Revenge
Rourke9: hehe
Metric_Furlong: heather.
SaxPython: #RecordsManagement
kumatsu: a man historically fueled by spite
janmelantu subscribed with Prime. They've subscribed for 5 months!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, janmelantu! (Today's storm count: 4)
TehAmelie: i like the metaphor of laminating your hate mail
SaxPython: Babylonian FOIA requests would be lit
SquareDotCube: I feel like what this culminates to is that the fire wasn't accidental and its ruins were to serve as an example
TemporallyAwry: WW2 had help with all the meth
TheAwkes: Just Franky.
adept_nekomancer: Except that Ea Nasir's Sprite was substandard and may have contained limited amounts of copper.
mtvcdm: You can be fueled by sprite; can I be fueled by fairies?
Dog_of_Myth: Drink Spite, get shit done.
mrverbal: I mean, Fanta was created by coke to sell to the germans in that era, so it was not far off fueled by sprite
SaxPython: lunarj1Fangs
TehAmelie: did you know refrigeration technology can be traced back to people wanting cool soft drinks
Manae: But could Sprite have prevented WWI by stopping the Arch Duke's procession before it started?
Sarah_Serinde: Jordan should get on that
Juliamon: ah, nut farming
TemporallyAwry: Peanuts are a legume, and no one cares
Metric_Furlong: Ian.
Dog_of_Myth: Ian
SaxPython: NotLikeThis
Rourke9: hmm
mtvcdm: Ian
Mischievous_Catgeist: the amount of nuts to put in our mouths ?
Juliamon: You know what to do, chat
Dog_of_Myth: Laugh?
SaxPython: @NotCainNorAbel FBtouchdown
Cptasparagus: quick googling shows A&M has a project to engineer oilier nuts for biodiesel
janmelantu: @Manae “Share a coke with: Gavrillo” and “Share a coke with: Franz” really would’ve brought the world closer together
LordZarano: laminating is terrible for preservation, the plastic degrades very quickly and takes the paper with it
SaxPython: @Cptasparagus I was reading about nut based biofuels in Kenya
RockPusher: tiltyhPLS tiltyhEXTREME
TehAmelie: tiger nut milk is my favorite

Dog_of_Myth: LUL
adept_nekomancer: I've seen Let's Nope, this is wholesome by comparison

LRRbot: New quote #8540: "And people say this is the wholesome stream." "DO they?" —Ian and Heather [2023-05-21]
Sarah_Serinde: It's like when someone tried to say Jacob's Ysbryd streams were family streams
mtvcdm: Wholesome *by LRR standards*
RockPusher: Lets Nope is thirsty, Rhythm Cafe is cursed :D
NotCainNorAbel: There's Let's Nope. TTSF where the goal seems to be to light things on fire. Anytime there is +6 people on stream Ben gets canceled.
iris_of_ether: Can't Draw Horses Club also frequently cursed
mtvcdm: Can't Draw Horses Club is the cursed stream.
Sarah_Serinde: There can be more than one cursed stream
Mischievous_Catgeist: most hole some stream is mine oclock
SaxPython: Is MineOclock more Holesome?
SaxPython: gg MC, you beat me to it
Mischievous_Catgeist: @SaxPython highfive
SaxPython: @Mischievous_Catgeist FBtouchdown
Sarah_Serinde: That's James' home stream that's the most holesome
DaxStrife: James Turner: famous YouTuber and Hole Enthusiast.
mtvcdm: Chillpoint is the stream where you discover all the things it turns out you suddenly don't want to talk about or contemplate.
iris_of_ether: lrrWOW lrrWOW lrrWOW
mtvcdm: Shut Up and Jam was just a bog-standard basketball game.
SquareDotCube: For the Genesis.
niccus: by this point it would need a lot of forewarning about language and a whole set of literary notes prepared
protojman: Shaq!
SaxPython: KomodoHype Kaazam KomodoHype
mtvcdm: Shaq
SquareDotCube: Sinbad
Metric_Furlong: no, Shaq wasn't in Sinbad
Metric_Furlong: that's different film
Metric_Furlong: *a different
iris_of_ether: Ian
protojman: Orlando
mtvcdm: Orlando Magic.
SaxPython: Orlando Magic
niccus: the inevitable decay of truth as memory fades to the wind: the nelson mandala
SquareDotCube: The comedian Sinbad, which you might know from Jingle All the Way
protojman: only knew cuz they were the local team and my brothers were into sports
Metric_Furlong: @niccus well plaid
mtvcdm: You'd be surprised how many people that happens to, Heather. A favorite player gets traded from the team they know them on and they 're just done.
TehAmelie: i'm into sports (the CAH card that just says "sports")
iris_of_ether: Also, have fun, Sinbad's Shazaam:
SquareDotCube: Shaq was part of the Phoenix Suns, then the Miami Heat
mtvcdm: I'm *very much* a sports person but I'd never force it. It's like any other form of entertainment: if you enjoy it, great, if you don't that's okay too.
SquareDotCube: @mtvcdm see the New England Patriots with Tom Brady being traded offm
mtvcdm: Oakland Raiders
mtvcdm: The Raiders are silver and black.
NotCainNorAbel: Ian had a Starter Cap, Ian was in a GANG!
SquareDotCube: That'd be the Oakland Raiders.
putz12a: I remember those times.
mtvcdm: Shaq on the Magic vs. Shaq on the Lakers, uniform-wise
protojman: yall ever talk to an ex-middle school shot put athlete before? *brushes shoulder off*
SquareDotCube: Oakland Raiders, famous for their fans dressing like a combination of KISS and the post-apocalypse
mtvcdm: Handball
TemporallyAwry: ^
RockPusher: I still think Ian would appreciate cricket for it's backward short leg and silly point lrrBEEJ
TemporallyAwry: Handball has the circular court though right?
mtvcdm: Borden ball is just another name for handball.
Rourke9: banned from what?
DrLigmaPhD: Did every sport and hated every one until competitive judo
mtvcdm: I can *talk* about sports real well. I can't *play* them for garbage.
KeytarCat: I was a band and theater kid because I'm gay and trans
RockPusher: A metal tube with voles
SquareDotCube: Banned from a normal life
Juliamon: I was only allowed to try out for sports that my mom was willing to go to games for. So, soccer because it was past prime mosquito season, and basketball because it was indoors.
Rourke9: oh sorry, I understood, I was just being silly!
Rourke9: i should have made that more clear
TheDailyMapleSyrup: I didn't want to play sports in school because it would cut into my video game time
MAPBoardgames: Sounds like a smart lady @Juliamon
mtvcdm: I was on a golf driving range once. The guy at the tee box next to me looked at how I was swinging.... and then *picked up his stuff and moved to a tee behind me.*
mtvcdm: I'm not good.
SaxPython: I went Varsity... at Marching Band
TemporallyAwry: I ended up in the film and news org at my school - because I got "stolen" to be their I.T. person.
mtvcdm: Once at a driving range I managed to hit the ball *backwards.* I still don't know how I did that.

KeytarCat: whoa my monitor is moving! :P
MAPBoardgames: I have to say I am not a fan of the 'one-fail restart' gameplay mechanic.
Juliamon: MAPBoardgames It's optional
