Made Of Fail



Episode 41 is live!


Made Of Fail was at C2E2 last month! Check out Dayna's recaps here, here and here.

Also, don't forget to check out The Daynapocalypse and our D&D session.

Apologies to aunt_zelda of the Secret Treehouse for not doing the promised cosplay. Next time, we swear. (Please do not take Kevin's prompts as actual suggestions. Please.)

OTHER PODCASTS! Follow Comic Book Queers and Geektress, because Stevie and Laura and Brenda are awesome!

Cleolinda has the lowdown on the now-cancelled Wicked Pretty Things anthology here.

UPCOMING GAMES! On April 19th, we'll be getting Portal 2 (Windows/Mac/PS3/XBox360), Mortal Kombat (PS3/XBox360) and Final Fantasy IV: The Complete Collection (PSP). Duke Nukem Forever (Windows/PS3/XBox360) has been pushed back to June 14th. We are Jack's complete lack of surprise.

Dayna sounded like Fran Drescher's mom from The Nanny!

You know, my Jewish mom actually told me once that she decided she's happy we decided to forgo having a wedding. It was almost enough to make me check the window for a flying pig. Although, it doesn't sound like you're about to get lucky with a laid-back attitude like that, Kevin, I'm sure the wedding will turn out great.

The one thing I've never done but always wanted to try was be part of a DnD game.

Devin cut out the part where I said "I got it, it just wasn't funny".

I'm only on Test Chamber 13 so I DON'T WANT TO HEAR A WORD. It took me a month to beat Portal; I can't finish these things in a day like apparently EVERYBODY ELSE ON THE INTERNET, so it's been very hard for me to avoid spoilers. I got the gist of some of the ending from the new JoCo song, so there's that, but I'm okay with that. I want to see how it gets to that point.

Also that song is stuck in my head forever.

Also I am very bad at figuring out puzzles so that's why it's taking me all week.

I haven't listened to MoF in months! *feels horrible* I got so busy with that project and the end of the school year and work starting again …

I didn't even see the comment directed at me until last month:

Apologies to aunt_zelda of the Secret Treehouse for not doing the promised cosplay. Next time, we swear. (Please do not take Kevin's prompts as actual suggestions. Please.)
It's ok that you didn't do the cosplay *sighs* You're gonna do it eventually, though, right? *puppy eyes*

I did listen to the D&D episode! I listened over a series of days during lunch, sometimes with my boyfriend laughing alongside me. It as awesome.

I'm not comfortable with crowds either, and yet Kevin is kinda the reason I'm going to NADWcon. Well, he's the reason I heard about it, went to the website, and thus spent weeks dithering about whether I should sign up or not, and then I did sign up. And now I'm kinda freaking out because it's NEXT WEEK ZOMG NOT READY and I haven't read all the books yet and oh gods so many people are going I didn't think this through ...

Dayna's organizing your bachelor party? Oh my … I can't wait to hear the stories!

"Oh Kevin, I'll get you one dressed up as a Night Elf!"
If I ever get married, Dayna is so organizing my bachelorette party. Yes.

"I'm a fairly straight guy …"
Should I be here for this conversation?

*googles 'The Admiral'* Oh … oh my …

I loved the Daynapocalypse! I didn't keep up with the podcast, but I did see that!

(You can give me a prompt now, Dayna, and I'll see if I can get it done by the end of July, once Suburban Knights and NADWCon are over.)

"Wonderful fanfic"

Genderswapped Linkara?! *SQUEEEEEEEEEEE*

You were gonna get TIED TO A CHAIR?! I didn't know that!

You were gonna send me the picture with the prompt "Doctor Insano has kidnapped a genderswapped Linkara: start writing" …? *squeaks and blushes* Dayna … I … I … I think I love you. You are one of the nicest people I know, hands down.

It's ok that you didn't do the photo shoot, giving me a shout out is more than enough.

"Genderswapped Linkara and Dayna are locked in a room together! Write!"
*turns beet red*
Great, now you put the idea in my head, but Dayna is against it!

"Genderswapped Kevin and Dayna are locked in a room together!"
No! That'd be like, I dunno, writing my parents or something!
Except not, because my parents divorced when I was two because my dad came out … this metaphor got confuzzled.

"Kevin and Noll are locked in a room together!"
What is it with you two and locked rooms?

"… asked to change the sex of one of the characters because they didn't want any gayness."

"It's the bottom of the ninth and the bases are loaded."
Oh lord … wow … I don't know whether to cringe in pain or applaud you, Kevin.

Portal 2? *SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE* And I'm not even a gamer!

It was very strange to see your faces, it's like seeing pictures of people from NPR, you listen to people and get this mental image, and then when you see them for real it's kinda strange because in your mind they're got red hair or are shorter or something.

"Hello and welcome to Made of Fail, where bad video games burn"
Somewhere in an alternate universe, that's happening right now …

I'd pay good money to see (or hear) Dayna and George fight about Firefly.

Gail Simone?!?!? Gail Simone?!?!?!?!?!
(Next year? Oh good, now I have time to actually, you know, read her stuff instead of just reading about how awesome she is.)

Maybe you guys could have separate little episodes where you just answer fanmail if there's so much?

Best ending song for the episode EVER.

Make sure to say hi while you're in Madison! I'm volunteering all up ins, so I'll be pretty much everywhere.

Awesome! I'll be the blushing one with the ankh and owl earrings. Or possibly sword earrings. Depends on the day.

I'm getting nervous, this is my first con ever.
