  2. I believe Deanscape has left Runescape for his new love, Rift.

  3. Thank you for the semi-sonnet; I do enjoy a good anticlimax. I just didn’t think to donate $14 at the time.

    I also jumped ship from CatFancy to the much more entertaining LusiCast and never looked back.
    Also, this is email is hilarious. Good work LemmingStew!

    LusiPoems
    My ear for verse is not so great, so I’ll ask Lusi to post these rather than try to transcribe them myself. The sonnet was really amazing. I should have donated for one.

  5. Side note: this was one of the most entertaining podcasts in a long time. Keep up the good work gents (and I use the word in the loosest possible meaning)!

  6. @DA: Thanks. Sometimes we make shit and people love it. This one was, actually, something we thought was good.

  7. Too bad Lusi didn’t include the Skype chat. That is where the real magic happened.

  8. This really was one of the best eps in a while. It’s always a blast when you get Chris on. He’s like your polar opposite, who just deflects your collective outrage. It’s terribly amusing, from a listener’s perspective.
    That said, I’m glad the site’s future has some assurance, and look forward to seeing what sort of lackeys you pick up this year. Dude who wrote the letter praising Julian is right though. He’s a staple of the site now, bolt his feet to the ground the moment he starts looking at the door.

  9. Podcast #110 hurts my ears… :( (That is the only episode I haven’t listened to it :L )
    I sincerely wish I never, ever mentioned Runescape!!
    And Gyme is right. Rift is soooo much better!!

  10. It’s truly strange to remember when Julian was only a reader here.

  11. Sorry Riftscape Dean, but I’m pretty sure we don’t play Rift either.

  12. Does everything I say sound like: RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, RIFT, bitches! To you guys?

  13. Lusipurr.com: A website where you get made fun of because of the games you play, not your sexuality.

  14. I’d rather you lot call me faggot (I don’t give a shit what people call me, I even call myself a faggot) than judge me on the MMO’s I play.

  15. Second Stone, you will soon (or not so soon) learn that being a part of this community is necessarily a lesson in taking yourself less seriously, even if you already think you don’t take yourself very seriously. Lusipurr.com will prove you wrong.

  16. Tried and failed to embed this…

    [You forgot to put quote marks around your url! -Ed.]

  17. Also see the South Park episode regarding the sort of folk who ride loud motorcycles.

  18. @Julian: I may have just peed my pants.

    @Ethos: I hate those fags.
