Invitare: same tbh
RandomTrivia: Rekt
CAKHost: :c
kumatsu: Chat is the worst, it's true
Thefluffiestguineapig: @jacqui_lantern234 This makes me think of the clip from Among Us where Voxy got killed and then Graham got killed and she was haunting him
jacqui_lantern234: ok, ill see myself out, Horner!!! Kappa
TheMerricat: We are the most dangerous when you can't see us...
adept_nekomancer: Leaving us unattended? That's a bold move.
GhostValv: D:
Thefluffiestguineapig: I'm not one of those
DaxStrife: When you can't see the chat, that's when they're most dangerous.
jacqui_lantern234: @Thefluffiestguineapig my friends agree that im at least as loud as voxy
TheMerricat: Heather you can't tell me that you didn't already know that chat was venomous you handle YouTube comments.

LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Electrodyne! (Today's storm count: 2)
betweenmyself: I for one am poisonous rather than venomous. You would do well to avoid ingesting me. pennyWhat
Thefluffiestguineapig: @jacqui_lantern234 As a fellow very loud person I can say it is a blessing and a curse
Raiger: Ian, going somewhere normal? That is WEIRD Kappa
Thefluffiestguineapig: I'm just caustic
DaxStrife: "Rhythm Cafe: we went somewhere normal!"
Thefluffiestguineapig: @DaxStrife That would be our National Lampoon's Vacation
adept_nekomancer: As long as we didn't find Mozart: Requiem II
jacqui_lantern234: @Thefluffiestguineapig but mostly just a curse. im under no illusion that im an annoyance to those around me :P
Thefluffiestguineapig: @adept_nekomancer You read my mind
Juliamon: The variety of medications I take probably make me, if not poisonous, at least potentially hazardous to ingest.
AzureishDragoon: Backbeat? The word is on the street that the fire in your heart is out?
Thefluffiestguineapig: @jacqui_lantern234 And as someone with extensive and strange neurodivergent hyper focused tendencies I also spout utterly weird hand brake turn things that made sense to me
OldUncleDan: Sailor Stars was that year.
CururuGuasu: I checked the official webpage for the game. It is deeply cursed. Big geocities energy
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Juliamon I know some of my meds make me more likely to be a medical school cadaver than a body for the body farms because of the accumulation of Nonsense
Electrodyne: Pygmy African hedgehogs are great. They run and poop and run and poop and sometimes swim

OldUncleDan: I still would love to have a Bobcat or Lynx.
betweenmyself: Should have gotten yourself an Eggperson
jacqui_lantern234: honestly, id love to have a pet pig. how big, you ask? the largest
LordZarano: @AzureishDragoon I'm sure you've heard it all before, but you never really had a doubt
SaxPython: SabaPing
kumatsu: I was supposed to get a chinchilla but family never followed through
StringCheeseRiot: lrrJUDGECALL
DaxStrife: You call the wrong number, and suddenly you're in Hotline Miami.
adept_nekomancer: I guess this is how we had to tune guitars before the internet.
Juliamon: Ah, Wink 189, with their famous hits "Some of the Large Stuff"
Juliamon: and "I Know Precisely What My Age Is"
Alex_Frostfire: Glean Bay would be Green Day, by that logic.

jacqui_lantern234: @Juliamon DANGIT beat me to it
Mollylele: I have never heard of an actual Battle Of The Bands happening, I think movies made them up
Juliamon: Mollylele There's an actual one in my neighborhood, last night in fact
jacqui_lantern234: i was gonna say horror version of Nsburg
kusinohki: battle royale of the bands - 100 bands enter, only 1 leave
Mollylele: This discount "Green Onions" is great tho
cle0deen: I've been to a thing called a battle of the bands but there wasn't a winner
Mollylele: Pick Up the Pieces? OK!
OldUncleDan: Is this licensed music... Because that horn riff sounds very familiar.
SnackPak_: Warped Tours used to do a local battle of the bands thing
jacqui_lantern234: @Mollylele ive been to one, there was a solo artist who was awesome and won. everyone else didnt know how to volume their instruments properly
kusinohki: volume properly? you mean, set the amps to 11??
Mollylele: @Mollylele i feel this story in my bones ☠
Alex_Frostfire: My elementary school best friend's name was Stephanie.
OldUncleDan: As opposed to Stephanie, from Watts.
Juliamon: My second-ever best friend was a Stephanie
Juliamon: (my first was a Jennifer)
Electrodyne: I just go outside and start singing, and people with instruments walk up to me
egonomadic: i'm actually just three stephanies in a trench coat
OldUncleDan: How about 27 Jennifers?
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Juliamon I'm resisting quoting a joke from a very early feed dump where they used the Heaps Free Shade hat
jacqui_lantern234: @kusinohki no. i mean the guitar was a 4, drums were a 5, vocals were an 8, bass was 99999999999999
v_nome: If on October 31st everybody wanted to break into a heavily choreographed dance routine while trick-or-treating that would be pretty sweet.
adept_nekomancer: Orange Lazarus: Our beverages refuse to die
OldUncleDan: Orange Augustus?
jacqui_lantern234: @Mollylele i like to believe it to be a universal story :p
Pteraspidomorphi: There is a lot of... dialogue...
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Electrodyne As someone who has a voice very ill suited to even soprano pop (it really barely works for musical theatre, just classical which is a blessing and a curse) that might lead to something hilarious
egonomadic: can't believe we've been punished for trying to play ddr
jacqui_lantern234: that *particular* awful band im talking about ruined Debaser by The Pixies for me
Thefluffiestguineapig: Wait, I had to feed my cats, do we move by play a rhythm game
jacqui_lantern234: im still mad about it 14 years later
adept_nekomancer: I notice our friend doesn't have to move around by frictionless musical sliding
Thefluffiestguineapig: I feel like this is just an adaptation of Hitchhiker's guide and Watts is Zaphod Beblebrox
jacqui_lantern234: "one of them you go into" tiltyhPLS
Thefluffiestguineapig: Is this just a Step Up video game
egonomadic: that phone is incredible
Juliamon: Wow, having a mobile phone in the 90s?
Juliamon: Fancy
egonomadic: "the pants not the birds" only at LRR
Thefluffiestguineapig: Can I have pants with a pocket dimension???
adept_nekomancer: We have hammerspace, but it only works for oversized 90's tech
Thefluffiestguineapig: I could really carry my stuff!!
Thefluffiestguineapig: Also pockets in clothes made for female adjacent bodies are SHIT
Juliamon: #banfakepockets
OldUncleDan: Maroon Couderoy fo rme!
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Juliamon Really actually please
SnackPak_: I had some green cords in the 90s
egonomadic: if i'm buying something i care about the pockets in i get wildfang pants
jacqui_lantern234: have you heard of courderoy pillows? apparently theyre making headlines!!! Kappa
egonomadic: their sizing is a little inconsistent though, but youc an't win em all
jacqui_lantern234: i should see myself out with that pun, shouldnt i?
Thefluffiestguineapig: I like the leggings made by Svaha because they have pockets that are a real size
egonomadic: if an arcade ISN'T a sort of labyrinth i'm definitely not leaving a good google review
Thefluffiestguineapig: Ian.......
jacqui_lantern234: tiltyhPLS
Thefluffiestguineapig: Also if David
Thefluffiestguineapig: bowie isn't there bad review
egonomadic: one out of five stars, not enough david bowies
SaxPython: Yo! Cargo Bandolier
Thefluffiestguineapig: Also Heather for real look at Svaha, they have dresses, skirts and all kinds of stuff with real pockets
Thefluffiestguineapig: They do shipping but I don't know about to Canada
SaxPython: KomodoHype
OldUncleDan: Toshi looks like they would be an antagonist in some sort of Slice of Life School anime.
jacqui_lantern234: Jacqui isnt going :(
Thefluffiestguineapig: @OldUncleDan Or start as the antagonist
betweenmyself: We just need to normalize the use toting around roll on luggage pennyWhat
SaxPython: @jacqui_lantern234 Same Fam. We can make a couch fort while they're gone
adept_nekomancer: This game needs to take a page from Artful Escape and have a dedicated jam button
Thefluffiestguineapig: I am not going to anything
Thefluffiestguineapig: @adept_nekomancer It's a charged ability that lets you vault over a single square object
SaxPython: Pillow forts for everyone FBtouchdown
Thefluffiestguineapig: This actually is hilariously rad
Thefluffiestguineapig: I love how they sink things up
Thefluffiestguineapig: Food service: the externalization of the disdain of those with money for those without
DaxStrife: "Lo-Fi Beats to Become Enraged To."
betweenmyself: Heather: famously bothered by ubiquity.
jacqui_lantern234: @SaxPython ive only made 1 couch fort in my life, and it was a decent bit into my 20's
adept_nekomancer: Video rental store? Game wanted to be extra sure we knew this is the 90's
Thefluffiestguineapig: Until recently I didn't have a couch and only the seat cushions are removable, the back is sewn in
failbag: Please, more rhythm platformers like the bonus levels in Rayman
Thefluffiestguineapig: Yes, the remake fad being kver......
Thefluffiestguineapig: *over
Alex_Frostfire: Is that... TMNT but whales?
Thefluffiestguineapig: The disco balls!!!
jacqui_lantern234: lmao, i kinda love this bit
ShifuDaxiongmao: when you gotta jam, you gotta jam :D
kusinohki: "sukaban, but without the block pushing" just popped into my head...
Thefluffiestguineapig: This is another game where they have their tongue in cheek about the setting but are completely sincere about the music
googoltudoris: something something "huggy bear"
Thefluffiestguineapig: The replay makes it
adept_nekomancer: The replay makes us look like some sort of odd music gang. It works strangely well
jacqui_lantern234: yeah, it would seem kinda tedious without the replay
Thefluffiestguineapig: @adept_nekomancer Like someone saw West Side Story and said "hey, my jam band can do that!"
jacqui_lantern234: im with ian on this, though my love for pickles comes from Spironolactone :p
jacqui_lantern234: though anchovies are a delight
betweenmyself: Like Scrooge McDuck in his Money Bin fun, but with anchovies…
RealGamerCow: my wife's favorite toppings are pineapple and anchovy
jacqui_lantern234: @RealGamerCow your wife is now my best friend
jacqui_lantern234: i decree it!!! :p
RandomTrivia: WAT
Thefluffiestguineapig: I've actually never had anchovies but I do like pineapple and salty things
Thefluffiestguineapig: Also that sounds like a parody of what Scott said before he left for the Antarctic
artacuno53: !discord
LRRbot: LRR has an official Discord server! And you don't even need to be subbed or anything! You can join here:
SaxPython: neat
Thefluffiestguineapig: The infinite rewind is really forgiving here and I like that
Thefluffiestguineapig: This is another game where they know their goal and they aren't forcing in "normal" mechanics just because
RealGamerCow: This game is funktastic
Thefluffiestguineapig: Ian's singing is a perfect accompaniment
Thefluffiestguineapig: Unironically I think it fits well
ShifuDaxiongmao: hey now, no disrespect to a good round of air-drumming :D
RealGamerCow: Do we know Watts' and Toshi's pronouns?
SaxPython: I understand the room is the "puzzle", but this has "can't climb chest high walls" vibes.
jacqui_lantern234: Tony has a punchable face
ShifuDaxiongmao: Tony is annoying, obnoxious, hard to get rid off... he must be a lead guitar ;)
ShifuDaxiongmao: all good band names are punny
Juliamon: Josh needs to stop making Beej faces
Reecer6: obviously the best band names are like, three or four-word phrases that don't make any semantic sense
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Reecer6 Ideally with a word that is barely transmogrified into your native tongue
kusinohki: we play music with rocks in it, so we call ourselves "music, with rocks in it"
betweenmyself: A punk band named “Oreo and the Double Stufs”… They’re punk because they ignore all the Cease and Desist orders from Nabisco.
Thefluffiestguineapig: @kusinohki When one member leaves and we need to change them it becomes musica dura to show growth
kusinohki: "one! two! one, two, many, lots!"
computercolinx: You can pause a beat with the Y button FYI
adept_nekomancer: That comes very close to working
adept_nekomancer: Good to know that the characters can move through one anoher
adept_nekomancer: *one another
Thefluffiestguineapig: When Ian gets the hand on chin pose leaning forward focusing you know the game has piqued their interest
Thefluffiestguineapig: In a good way, not harpsichord tuning way
Thefluffiestguineapig: That is a genuinely useful hint!
computercolinx: That was a fun level
UWDJohn subscribed at Tier 1. They've subscribed for 55 months, currently on a 55 month streak!
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, UWDJohn! (Today's storm count: 5)
Thefluffiestguineapig: Honestly this is another game where the decisions seem to be made in order to make it fun
RealGamerCow: It would be cool if each band member had their own time signature for movement
Thefluffiestguineapig: I think that name
Thefluffiestguineapig: @RealGamerCow Honestly if you did that the power move would be if you did it as a group of tap dancers. That would be so hard to program to make work if my limited understanding indicates anything
PharaohBender27: They wouldn't call it "Triangle Strategy," would they? sparkl171Smug
adept_nekomancer: My brain keeps wanting to parse "Mesatones" as "Meatstones"
Thefluffiestguineapig: @PharaohBender27 If you go there you might as well go Domino Strategy
Reecer6: they wouldn't compose and perform a powerful vocal track where the hook is the phrase "triangle strategy," would they?
Thefluffiestguineapig: The fact that the dialogue is in their instruments noise from movement is a little odd
kusinohki: are we in the xxxHolic universe? all unnamed characters are just shadows?
Reecer6: so what determines where an arrow appears?
Thefluffiestguineapig: Honestly that's what I'm walking about could be a great tour of a historic city
PMAvers: We clearly harvested their Fan Energy into our Stage for future battles.
Thefluffiestguineapig: Yeah, is that the real drummer here?
Thefluffiestguineapig: The generator I mean
Reecer6: they're millifans, actually
adept_nekomancer: That is the SI unit for fandom
definenull: !honk
PMAvers: While fans are nice on their own, what you really need is a Merch Booth to convert fans into a currency you can actually use: money.
Thefluffiestguineapig: @adept_nekomancer The base unit? So does a family member being obligated to come make a microfan or something even smaller?
kusinohki: I thought patreon was the best way to convert fans into money??
Thefluffiestguineapig: @PMAvers Merch is the SI unit that leads to bills being paid
Thefluffiestguineapig: @kusinohki That is a good point. Also gives the largest amount of the fans to the creator
adept_nekomancer: @Thefluffiestguineapig Sounds like a cue for someone to post the store link :)
CAKHost: !store
LRRbot: LoadingReadyRun has a store! You can buy Shirt, or Sleeve, or Playmat, or Pin, or Other! Check out for the full catalog.
kusinohki: was trying to soft ball a segue for ian and/or heather, but they're not reading chat it seems...
Thefluffiestguineapig: Also !patreon
Thefluffiestguineapig: I don't know if anyone has the ability to trigger that but I figured it was at least a good thing to mention
CAKHost: Have to do it by itself
CAKHost: !patreon
LRRbot: 2713 patrons for a total of $20,740.48 per month.
Thefluffiestguineapig: Ah, thank you!
CAKHost: Of course!
CururuGuasu: You’ve created a paradox!
PMAvers: A pair of socks? I can't help but put them on
kusinohki: a pair of rocks? call meg!
Thefluffiestguineapig: A pair of Crocs? Lose the socks
PMAvers: Chicken costumes are only for Kiryu
CururuGuasu: Their fandom is based on movement
CururuGuasu: Much like dinosaurs
space_turbulence: Fire at concerts has never caused any problems
RealGamerCow: the overlap of cell phones and blockbuster must be small
space_turbulence: Acquire trumpet, become ska

A_Dub888: "Add flair" Charolette or Ric?
LordZarano: But its axis rotates on an angle equal to the mathematical formular for the perfect croquembouche!
PharaohBender27: escher3PUN
Thefluffiestguineapig: @A_Dub888 Depends if you want to add more ire or nostalgia to your alchemical creation
kusinohki: *chaz hands*
Thefluffiestguineapig: I haven't watched all of Beej's playthroughs but wasn't there some game with Tokyo in the name where some of the puzzles were like this without the music and with violence?
LordZarano: A way to mechanically enforce laying down the drumbeat first
PharaohBender27: @Thefluffiestguineapig Shadowrun Hong Kong, I think?
KeytarCat: Oh I lost track of time! Hello!
Thefluffiestguineapig: @PharaohBender27 Yes, the movement puzzles there had a similar movement to avoid interception mechanic
Thefluffiestguineapig: Hey KeytarCat!
Thefluffiestguineapig: I have one of my not keytar cats adorably asleep on the back of the couch
KeytarCat: aww, good baby
Thefluffiestguineapig: They all very much are, I love them so much.
AriaDreamGirl: Shadowband
Thefluffiestguineapig: Ugh, that slicked back hair is so bad
Thefluffiestguineapig: Used car salesman vibe
LordZarano: Bennett Foddy's Zipper, on Playdate, also has quite similar mechanics, with violence
KeytarCat: I played with a funk band for a few shows
Half_Duplex: why do they always make the sax player the jerk?
RealGamerCow: So, Beej.
PharaohBender27: Chaz, baby, don't be that way!
SymphonicLolita: I showed you my sax pls respond
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Half_Duplex Only if it's tenor sax, if it's any of the others they are just portrayed weirdly
PharaohBender27: (And now a line my brain came up with years ago has been exorcised)
Thefluffiestguineapig: Wait, if it's soprano sax then it's just Kenny G
definenull: funk-splaining
definenull: teeny tiny alien
kusinohki: and music defeats aliens in how many anime?
Thefluffiestguineapig: Did they funk splain to those girls? Also Chaz needs to have his stupid creep smirk honestly evaluated to his face
Thefluffiestguineapig: Flalians is a very Ian designation
RealGamerCow: Chaz very much looks like a Chaz
Thefluffiestguineapig: @RealGamerCow In my head his legal name is Chase and he changed it to align with his bad hair choices
iarethel0ser: FBtouchdown
Thefluffiestguineapig: That was good work!
SaxPython: KomodoHype
Thefluffiestguineapig: Oh jeez
Bruceski: Are you playing a gig or planning a heist?
Thefluffiestguineapig: Mandatory stealth........I'm not sure about this
A_Dub888: !findquote read card
LRRbot: Quote #3809: "These cards... I actually need to read them to find out how good they are." —Doc [2017-01-06]
Thefluffiestguineapig: @Bruceski Honestly I would watch a comedy about a post high school garage band trying to transition into a heist crew
Thefluffiestguineapig: Or the reverse, a heist crew trying to pass themselves off as a garage band in order to pull a job
e_bloc: Corgo334 superthanksbitspatreonstore.lrr
KeytarCat: @Thefluffiestguineapig Jazz Punk band stealing shit for their underground gigs!
Thefluffiestguineapig: @KeytarCat Stealing pieces of their competition's instruments
KeytarCat: Is that Pazz or Junk?
Thefluffiestguineapig: The chat would be divided into hilarity and rage
Juliamon: Jazzpunk was a really good game
Thefluffiestguineapig: Thank you for the awesome stream as always!
TheAinMAP: guyjudgeBits
TheAinMAP: Thank you for streaming.
