Ever wonder what's it's like to go green? Then you're in luck, Gentle Listener. Hip[pie/ster] hosts Ben Udashen, Wesley Johnson, Nick Coffman, Jarret Green, and Randall Smith are here to hacky-sack with you. Indeed much of the show is dedicated to working out personal beefs/tofus.

In this episode:
Ben's a Dallas emigré, now residing in Olympia, Wa, and mostly games on his PC. Nick a native of Olympia now residing in Yelm, WA, and like Ben also at THE Evergreen State College. Nick is a cheapskate and only buys bargain games. Also, a bot-biased gamer. A brief appreciation of older games with bots. Great deals on Crackdown and other games at New Egg. Jarret implements Squash the Beef Friday in his classroom; has to explain concept repeatedly to un-hip students. Jarret not exactly bumping chests with fellow teachers. Jarret takes in a Flight of the Conchords concert; FoTC roundly appreciated by all. Wes returns from Spinal Tap: Unwigged & Unplugged, and provides a report. Also, meets a single flight attendant at the show. Jokes about joking about joking, at one another's expense. All roads lead to Yelm. Dragonslayer: Plants Vs. Zombies (Wes), Dragon Quest V (Ben), GTA: Chinatown Wars (Jarret), Fable II (Nick), and Crackdown (Randall). Cheap games at New Egg! Beard survey, taken and discussed. Beardlessness lamented by Nick, Jarret, and Randall; Wes and Ben content with their facial lots. Star Trek discussed. Randall recommends the Creative Screenwriting podcast with a caveat. Three out of four other hosts recommend Star Trek to Jarret; three out of four other hosts think Nick Coffman is an unappreciative clod. Star Wars One-Minute Fanfic Theatre. Nick Coffman just a bit too eager to pen Angel fanfic. Lost ending debated, and the word "poutrage" makes an appearance. Note: our hosts this week mistake the statue on the island as Anubis; it's clearly identified elsewhere as Sobek.
