Hey so remember when we had Kt on for episode 74? Yeah, well she's back. If you're too lazy to click that link here's what you need to know: Kt launched a Kickstarter project so she could make/star in a movie she wrote. The Kickstarter was crazy successful and raised 3x the amout she initially asked for. She filmed the movie (with Alex doing special effects and Jared Skolnick directing), the movie is currently in post-production and now Kt is back to talk about it. Got it? Make sense? Good. Now listen to the episode.
Want to know more about the movie? Go to The Girl in the Basement's Facebook page and edumacate yourself.
Honestly I'd love to write more but I can't stop watching the AGDQ stream. (Awesome Games Done Quick...I briefly touch on it in this episode) Right now a man who goes by the gamertag "Peaches_" is beating the shit out of Mario 64....WITH ONE HAND. HE'S BEATING THE GAME WITH ONE HAND IN LESS THAN A HALF HOUR. So. There's that. Sometimes I like to think I'm good at videogames. Then a guy named Peaches_ comes along and singlehandedly (pun definitely 100% intended) makes me look like a fool.
That's all for this week. Hope you enjoy.

I took part in a D&D game for the first time last night. I like to think of it as a right of passage. Like I can officially give an opinion on it now that I've played the game. Everyone knows that D&D has a certain stigma. When most people hear D&D they immediately think of the overweight, acne scarred shut-ins chugging Mountain Dew in their parent's basement with a few equally repulsive friends pretending they're mythical creatures fighting other mythical creatures in vast mythical lands. It's a shame, though. After a solid 6+ hour sitting I can easliy say that I had a great time and I look forward to playing again. I'll admit the role playing aspect is a little difficult for me to get used to but I can see myself getting the hang of it in time. I genuinely feel that as long as you're playing with the right people literally anyone can have a great time playing D&D. Just don't trust anyone. Especially Alex. Fuckin' little gnome being all secretive and shit...
Oh, and don't be that guy who forgets to bring cash to help cover for pizza. Cuz that was me. Whoops.
