Aldie's Full of Love!

Hi ya'll we need some "funny" GeekSpeak announcements to be recorded this weekend.

Something Like:

"Now podcasting across the internet... GeekSpeak with Aldie & Derk!" (this one's not funny)

"The following is a public service announcement from GeekSpeak... Don't touch my dice....I mean it!"

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Some are born to move the world To live their fantasies But most of us just dream about The things we'd like to be Sadder still to watch it die Than never to have known it For you, the blind who once could see The bell tolls for thee...

Do you mean you want suggestions written here or do you want announcements recorded on the 800 number?

And do you want them to be funny or do you want them to be "funny" ?

I have discovered that
if one takes a big lungful of helium before speaking everything comes out funny. I do it while rereading my posts here aloud before hitting Submit.

meeple
To repeat one of my witticisms, Don't Fear The Meeple to the tune of Don't Fear the Reaper. Well I liked it.

How about those strange starting conditions? Player that looks most like a pirate and so on. The idea is to throw in things from games that people would not be familiar with, read by someone apart from you two. Strange winning conditions. Turn order. Strange translations.

Or some dialogue of a english gamer trying to pronounce german titles and repeatedly being corrected by a german speaker. "But that's what I said!" (Hard to organise but good audio).

Announcement
How about,

"Now, live from our studio, two geeks who founded the world's definitive boardgame website, continue their next interview with gaming savant ____ _____. Please welcome our hosts, Aldie and Derk." (APPLAUSE, followed by "Ohhhhh, but I wanted to be mayor next.")

In grim seriousness
"Podcast from high atop the Wallenstein Cube Tower in beautiful downtown Puerto Rico....it's GEEK SPEAK with Aldie and Derk!"

The following is a public service announcement from Geek Speak....

(Several voices simultaneously) "It's your move, Derk."

"I know. I KNOW!!"

(Somber voice)... "Analysis Paralysis strikes thousands of gamers weekly, affecting all those around them. In many cases Geek Speak has been proven to be an effective theraputic remedy and is available without prescription."


The following is a public service announcement from Geek Speak...."When playing games that use dice with small children make sure the dice are much larger than their nostrils."

The following is a public service announcement from Geek Speak...."Game geeks aren't exactly like other kinds of geeks. (pause) Really, we..I mean THEY aren't geeky at all...Trust me on this. We...uh...THEY just aren't."

Geekspeak: the best 65...no, 70....make that 155...whatever...minutes of your week.

Geekspeak: Jugging the Hare since September 2004.

Geekspeak with Aldie and Derk, the only internet radio hosts with a higher Fart Factor than El Grande.

Geekspeak: I mean, it's not like I have anything better to do. Everyone gave up on DNF years ago.

Geekspeak: We have easy access to Shiner, yet we regularly drink Rolling Rock. Yeah, it doesn't make sense to us, either.

And remember, kids, the answer to the question "Who's turn is it?" is ALWAYS the same.

Rollin' Rock vs. Shiner
Shiner is actually my preferred beer, but I'm quite fond of the new Rollin' Rock Light, as a very decent entry in the full-bodied taste but not too heavy category. Again, Shiner is still one of the best beers out there, and it's one of the few highlights of goin' out to bars in Dallas: everywhere they have it on tap.

Oh, and these are great PSA's!

How about getting Alison Hanson on tape saying "Meeple!"? It's her word after all.

"Nice bits"
"A bit fiddly"

I like the idea of recording some box farts. You could use it when referring to a particular game, as if you were opening the box. A sort of station ident like they had years ago.

3 settlers out of 4 always lose. Come win with Geekspeak.

Just back from the ruins of Tikal, Aldie and Derk prepare for a trip to lucious Puerto Rico. Join these fine traveling fellows now, as they talk of their travels across the world.

Some of us like Tichu, others like Geekspeak.

You know when those stand up comedians get up there and try and be funny by using jargon from various industries in dirty ways? We don't do that here. Our jargon is always funny when used in dirty ways. <--- could be written better, but it hink you get my point?

Have you ever wanted to travel? See the world? Go on a cruise to the alaskan islands? So have we. But instead we spend all our money on games. Geekspeak, instead of all that boring sunshine.

Loud rock-station-DJ voice: "Geekspeak: The guys your mama always warned you about.

Seriously. She warned you not to talk to them.
Or take candy from them.
And definitely not to get in the car with them.

(Long Pause)

Want some candy?
