Episode 26: [Almost] Everything is Awesome

Brian and Justin drop some true truths and almost regret it afterward. Brian has had a pretty rough week, there are more setbacks at DragonCon 2014 and, so it's not a completely depressing episode, they play a round of Name That Autocomplete.

Feral Cat Wonderland

While Brian was out on vacation, he came across a parking lot with so many feral cats that they had to put up a sign telling people to not dump their cats here. Because this is the internet, Brian and Justin got into a discussion about how many cats they could fight.

Alright Fuck It, Let's Get Into It

So Brian hosts a show on the internet called Scam School. It's kind of his thing. On various social media platforms, he's known as "ScamSchoolBrian". Scam School is what launched this whole internet thing of his. What you may not have known is that Brian is still on the same agreement that he signed back in 2007. Another thing you may not have known is that everyone that joined the network after 2008 owns all of their own stuff and just uses Revision3/Discovery Digital as a distribution platform; a pretty sweet deal. It'd be really rad if Brian owned even 1% of Scam School, but he doesn't. He has put a TON into Scam School and the brand by providing more/higher quality content, as well as answering literally tens of thousands of YouTube comments and taking over ALL of the production work.

Anyway, guess who's trying to renegotiate his contract? Guess how it's going. Brian truly loves Scam School and hopes he will get to do it for the rest of his life.

The discussion started out a bit passive aggressive, peaked at full-on "flip cars and light fires", and ended with some true truths and real emotions. Negotiations are still on-going so, seriously, don't go starting any fires. This is not the time.

Btw, here's the Diamond Club reddit post discussing Brian's cryptic tweets.

FUCK! #FT9K is Down!

If you've been keeping up with the plans for DragonCon 2014, you know that it's been quite a roller coaster ride. Well, get ready! We got another loop comin'! First it was a full-on Turquoise Jeep concert. Then it was (and still is) a Ali Spagnola, Professor Shyguy, MC Allergy and Tay Allyn concert. Then it was all that PLUS Turquoise Jeep. Now the latest twist: the people in charge of the podcast track have informed Justin that they have rejected the Turquoise Jeep show in Crystal Ballroom at their proposed timeslot. Fuck. So the current plan is to have the Jeep perform DURING Night Attack, but that might put a bit of a damper on #FT9K. Representing Turquoise Jeep will be Flynt Flossy, Whatchamacallit, Moonrock and Slick Mahoney. Anyway. All of the aforementioned people will perform at DragonCon in some location at some time. Things will probably still change. Oh by the way, it's seven days from now.
