Preshow

Brian decided to go live for the preshow an hour before the show was scheduled to start. Then Justin and Brett got to their hotel an hour after the show was supposed to start. Sooooooo… we had a two hour preshow with Brian and Bonnie watching videos.

Brian's Home: Put A Bird In It

Brian was working on getting ready for the holiday rush for Scam Stuff when he heard his daughters freaking out in the other room. Turns out there was a bird trapped inside their house. The girls were trying to whistle at it to lure it out and Brian was googling how to get a bird out of your house. They had a really tough time getting it out. At one point, they lost it and assumed it was gone. Brian had a debriefing with the family to review how they handled the situation. Spoiler alert: They didn't handle it well. Unfortunately, after the meeting they realized that the bird was still in the house. Then the bird just left.

Too Many Cooks

So between last episode and this episode, the utterly remarkable Too Many Cooks came and went. The Adult Swim short blew up one night and by the time of recording this episode it had gone into the parody/remake phase and was fading fast. It is an amazing video, so Brian and Justin felt the need to at least acknowledge it.

Justin Is An Asshole

Justin got an email from California Shiners (the people who brought you Ruinum) about a check that Justin has yet to cash. It was for $2.

Fuck You, Amirite?

Brian and Justin describe this game as the world's meanest pub quiz. Just like Jeopardy requires you to answer in the form of a question, this game requires you to answer in the form of an insult.

All of the questions in this game were taken from Brian Ibbott

Friendly Recommendation

Mailroute

Brian told the story of the time he and Brett were pelted with tins of Spam at South By Southwest. And just like our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ (or Thor, pick your poison) came down from the heavens and gave them salvation in the form of Mailroute.

Head on over to Mailroute.net/NightAttack.html for a 15-day free trial.

The Revelation

The past month and a half of shows has been filled with a ton of dumb drama, it's time we got back to work and start anotherDiamond Club novel-type project. Here's the idea that got Justin and Brian excited: Chicken Soup for Ebola: 12 Inspirational Tales that Prove Anything is Possible. Essentially, it's just a big self-help book full of bullshit inspirational stories. So each story is independent of the rest and supposedly written by some bullshit almost-doctor (shaman, guru, homeopath, Dr. Bird, Owen JJ Stone AKA OhDoctah) with no actual medical advice. Don't feel like you have to stay within the confines of Ebola or health, go crazy; write about money, relationships, anything self-help related. Think of it like a longform Buzzfeed article filled with bogus inspirational tales… so a Buzzfeed article, AMIRITE?!

The goal of this project is to have it hit Number 1 on the iBooks store and have Fox News talk about it on TV.

Here's the link to the Self-Help Book doc

BUT WHAT ABOUT THE MONEY?!

With The Diamond Club: A Novel, the guys were totally unprepared for the avalanche of money that came their way from the iBooks store. This time around they've pledged to give all the money to a charity of Chatrealm's choice.

Diamond Time

If you want to submit your thing for Diamond Time head over to the Diamond Club Subreddit and submit your thing. Just be sure to include "[diamondtime]" in the submission title.

Night Attack 3: Too Old to Talk

Brian and Justin have hired Neshcom to edit the upcoming Night Attack album, and he's put together a graph of the tracks that Brian showed off a bit.

The guys also showed off some of Chatrealm's album art submissions. See the submissions in the doc
