The Dork Forest

Dork on Dork Dialog with Jackie Kashian. I am interested in whatever dorky thing you want to talk about.

Jesse Schell and Andy Ashcraft and I are at the Game Designer Conference . Jesse teaches game design at Carnegie Mellon, has his own company, and has great dork cred in the world of other hobbies: Harmonica, juggling. Andy Ashcraft and he talk for real about games… I ask for a lot of clarification. It’s a good one. Enjoy!

    That's cool that we are able to receive the personal loans moreover, it opens up new chances.

    And the transcript of that episode, no less:

    Well, you're too kind...and the surprise on the date of THE LAST MAN should've triggered a check on the details on THE FRED ALLEN SHOW...1948-49 was the last year for the radio show (though Allen would go on to THE BIG SHOW on NBC radio 1950-52, with Tallullah Bankhead and a whole lot of other radio talent), and it looks like it was STOP THE MUSIC's radio version that knocked the Allen show of its perch. I think my mistake in re QUEEN FOR A DAY is from the episode which ended with Jack Benny "sneaking" onto the "new format" for Allen's show, KING FOR A DAY, so that Benny could collect the prizes...this was the first episode I heard of the Allen show, and one of at least several that ran over, in its chaotic ending, so that NBC had to cut it off arbitrarily at the end of the half-hour.

    And this epi was very engaging. Remarkable the boxes people's thinking can restricted by, no? (Alice has recently been going game-wild.)

    Clearly, eventually you will have to do a whole segment about Fred Allen, as guest with ever-greater frequency start espousing his virtues to you...unlike Leno and Letterman, though, Fred Allen and Jack Benny's "feud" was always a joke, and they did well by each other, even if Benny's show was more popular till the 1949-50 season, when THE FRED ALLEN SHOW was the highest-rated radio series in the US. (And slapped down by QUEEN FOR A DAY the next season. "Reality" radio, rather than tv. Sound familiar, though?)--Mary Shelley's FRANKENSTEIN was first published in 1818, rather than the 1880s...Bram Stoker was more the contemporary of such other (aside from Shelley) early science fiction writers as H. G. Wells and Jules Verne...her other major science-fiction novel, THE LAST MAN, was much earlier than I remembered, published in 1826...she died in 1851. (She wrote the first version of FRANKENSTEIN at the famous retreat in Geneva with her husband, her step-sister, Lord Byron and John Polidori, who had the second-biggest literary hit with his "The Vampyre").
