This could be you! (and us)
As some of you may have noticed we’ve fallen behind in our podcast schedule. Not to worry, we just weren’t too enthused about the topics we had.
So it was suggested by Jones that we do another “Listener Mailbag” episode. If you’ve got a question about the podcast, Ben’s projects, our movies, the website, why the forums are still phpBB2, whatever place them below in the comments section. We’ll pick the interesting ones to answer on the podcast which will return next week on its regular time.
NOTE: As of now the question submission is done, thanks for your input and we’ll see you on the podcast!

When you start (FINALLY) listening to your public, and loading the site with Viagra ads (again… FINALLY), will you attempt a sponsorship with them, or will you just promote their wonderful blood pressure medication out of the goodness of your heart?
It’s been said before, but seriously, how is Bill Paxton Pinball coming?

What are noth of your top ten rock band (1, 2, DLC…) songs and why?
Tried the Wii version of rock band 2 for comparisons sake?
How many beers did it take to complete the N64 portable?
Imagine this scenario:
You’re on a desert island about 1000 miles away from home. You can take a safe plane home, or you could take a zeppelin full of MDG beer home. But if you take the zeppelin full of beer, you will be chased by some angry Russian guys in airplanes who are trying to shoot you down. The zeppelin has a mounted 50 caliber machine gun though so you have a chance to shoot down the angry Russian people.
Would you take the plane or the zeppelin?
