Viral Play – Mess Hall Ep. 6

Posted in Podcasts with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 29, 2010 by Carlos Macias

School season, child rearing, headbutting, missed interviews. All a part of what’s been happening with Viral Play lately.

No worries, though. The show must go on, and it will. Only maybe not as timely as before — because we’ve always been timely, ‘members?

Anyway, to tide you guys over until a proper Viral Play we bring you a special episode of “Mess Hall.” Carlos and the gang hid from the rain at “Jimmy and Eddie’s Apartment” (patent pending) to talk about the moving-away-from-home experience, the Conan/Leno situation, NBC hate, goals of the upcoming “Talk Show,” Jimmy’s new nickname, and end it with talk of athletes’ extracurricular activities (think: Tiger Woods).

Even Hitler comes up! Truly a mess hall episode not to be missed.

Viral Play – Mess Hall Ep. 5

Posted in Podcasts with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 5, 2010 by Carlos Macias

After some extensive, extensive editing here’s Mess Hall’s new year episode. Don’t worry, even after cuts most of the foolishness still remained for you to frown upon. All our friends came out including last week’s guest, Jeramy Lowe, Ariel and Adrian Otero, Carlos Macias, Louie Recinos, “Jrock,” Elias Valenzuela, and plenty more.

Mainly, we tried talking about Adrian’s recent trip to England but the conversation quickly scattered into “disorganized chaos” covering Bioshock-esque underwater tunnels, Jamaican lager, a couple of local stories, missing gloves, the definition of a rotation, and Eddie’s Capitalism minute.

untitledYes, we know. Last “Mess Hall” was…well, a mess. This time around, though, Ariel and Adrian Otero worked their producing magic to level the sounds and edit this week’s podcast down to the nice, entertaining .mp3 you’ll hear today.

Topics discussed this week include: Adrian’s England roundabout trip, meeting girls in Midnight Club: Los Angeles, Little Caesars’ heartburn, getting old at 22, consumer responsibility, Uncharted 2, and are the Kings of Leon whack?

As mentioned on the show, you can plan your worldwide, altruistic traveling with Couch Surfing.

[NOTE: Street Fighter IV was released earlier this year and Capcom celebrated with style. I went to “cover” it with a few friends and had a blast going hands-on with the title in a huge venue with hundreds of fans. I got a cool, SF-emblazoned hat as well! I’ll update with more pics later…]
