015 | It‘s a Skari World w/ Beardy & Skari

Santa Clause is comin', baby!

Talk about a blast from the past! No time machine was required to make this episode happen. As if when Los is joined by Beardy it's not Future Monkey-y enough. Along came a Skari! The three amigos saddle up for the first time in a long time!

Discussed were a few games here and there, like one where an A.I. controlled text based game simulates rather raunchy things with St. Nicolas and some squirrels. Yeah, I'll let you figure out who talked about that one. But for the most part, this episode focused on Skari and what she's been up to. It's been years, like since way before the pandemic started that we got together to chat. So there was a lot of catching up to do. So sit back, relax, and enjoy some Santa lovin'. 

Links and Info Discussed

    • AI Dungeon - Here is the text based game where all of Skari's wild fantasies come true.
    • Outschool.com - This is the online based pre-k Beardy was talking about.
    • Happy Masks - Beardy's mask of choice to venture out in the wilds with.

014 | Pre-E3 Game Talk w/ Beardy

E3 HYPE TRAIN GO CHOOOOOOO

In true Future Monkeys fashion, Los is joined again by Beardy, and they talk games! They discuss Mass Effect and how little progress they've made on it, and then get into what they're predicting for E3. Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo are all discussed, and Los hopes for number one next-gen killer app that the Big N can announce that would bring balance to the Force.

013 | Vaccinated Livin’ w/ Beardy

BACK TO NORMA... Oh, wait, not quite

Beardy and Los are back again! Talking about our new lives as vaccinated citizens! And as it turns out, it's not that much different LOL. We catch up with things that have been going on, how we've been, and talk about getting vaccinated. We kinda go into a tangent about our disagreements with how things have progressed and how difficult it is as people with families who cannot be vaccinated, but what can ya do? Besides, you know, act like the pandemic is still happening for a lot of people.

012 | Everything But Games w/ Elaine

Other Stuff to Do

After a needed mini mental break, I'm finally mustering the strength to get this show posted. Ridiculously huge apologies to Elaine! I feel horrible, I do. But trying to move forward, let's keep going.

Episode 11, if you never heard it, was probably one of my favorite shows I've ever recorded. I'm so happy to have had Elaine on these back to back shows. If you can recall, we discussed a few very real topics. It felt as if it took a toll after the conversation, so episode 12 was great to chase it with as it's much more laid back.

We talked about fun stuff. I tried to not discuss gaming as that's our go-to hobby that many already know about. I wanted to focus instead on other things we enjoy doing. We talked about books, what we' enjoy reading, what we're reading now, all that jazz. Also got into our favorite T.V. shows and discussed what we love so much about them. Then we got into snacks! The most important subject as far as Elaine goes, and for good reason. Tune in to find out why!

011 | Today’s Positive w/ Elaine

Today's Positive: An awesome show

Hear ye, hear ye, hear ye! On this, the 3rd day of February. Elaine, etdragon, OG,  pioneer of pioneers, originator of originators, was awakened at sunset from her trash panda haven, and spoke to me in Elainese and said: I will join you on your show! 

So here we are! Still in Groundhog Day mode like we wear top hats, this is episode 11 and I'm joined by Elaine! We went over a ton of topics ranging from kids and the absolute joys of parenting them, how it was putting out podcasts waaaaaaay back before the internet was invented, and going through gaming fatigue. 

But most of all, what I think is the main focus, is our talk about mental health. We got into a deep conversation that led down many paths. Discussions about why finding the positive of a day is important, and what led to an alcohol free life. 

This episode was real, candid, and meaningful. I'm super happy to have had Elaine on and we both hope the show is heard on the many levels it was broadcasted on.
