Oh god, Geek Squad? There's a reason why I got myself a brand new computer; because they did something while fixing the old one, and it died. For your sake, I'll hope for the best. But...
hey! good on ya taking it to geek squad! we'll take good care of it
Holly crap! Used to live in the same town as Shorts Brewery!
Brad I have to say that you keeping the ...( Crabs????) in your mouth after the camera fell is a true sign of being a trooper. The amount of honesty you show sometimes is amazing. Thanks for being as cool as frozen cucumbers on a winter night during a Canadian blizzard.
You know i probly could fix brad's computer if he mailed to me cheaper and faster than GS provided its not a hardware fault. then it will be just slightly more expensive.
"Put a crab-infested cock in my mouth" - Brad Jones
As a lifelong Michigan denizen, I have consumed quite a bit of Faygo Red Pop.
Fun tip -- Red Pop makes a good float. Put it in a mug with a couple of scoops of vanilla ice cream. Seriously.
The matcha chocolate Pocky isn't that great... it is supposed to be tea chocolate. It didn't have that much of a taste to me.
I highly recommend the tropical mango/pineapple Pocky, it's awesome.
If the talking vagina added anything to the beer, it would be yeast, not hops.
NO, don't spit that shit into the chalice, nooooo, that was a present! Awww, I hope the person who sent that isn't watching!
But seriously, those things looked horrifying, so I can't really blame you...I assume we're all invited to your tongue's funeral?
They probably looked like eyes because they are eyes. Whole roasted baby crabs. I'm having a difficult time tracking down data on that specific brand of it, though. Looking up Japanese crab snacks, I get a lot of pictures of that bag, but they're all in English. There are several other baby-crab snacks, but different brands. I finally puzzle through the kanji and locate Amazon.co.jp selling what looks similar, but turns out to be a bag of sardines in a very similarly packaged bag. Maybe they discontinued it and these are old baby crabs?
Those are dried crabs actually, tamagogani... There should be a sticker with information in english on the back though. Sake- makes you see only Japanese letters... genius Japanese international marketing ploy!!! Anyway, yeah, from what I've tasted, their snacks tend to be stinky and/or sticky, and cakes are either salty or just very weak. Somehow I like most of the stuff, but respect to anyone who dares smell and actually try some of it anyway!
Guy who supplied the Faygo here. My only real problem with the Cotton Candy soda is that it's just too damn sweet. I felt like my teeth were melting after just one sip.
Maybe you just have more of a sweet tooth than I do. =)
So he is baked as hell right? I'm not just imagining thing?
That's probably the effect of Benadryl that you're seeing. I was having bad allergies all day today that were fucking with my eyes.
If I smoke, I smoke at night before I go to bed. Or before going to see Oogieloves. I don't really do it before doing any video work because I wouldn't be able to function right.
Aw man, Benadryl does the same thing to me.
I was wondering why you did this whole video in your 'talking-to-Lloyd' voice :P
Can't forget about that sweet Katy Perry high. Don't know from experience, but Brad and Dave are easily in my sesh dream team. I'd bench John Lennon for Angry High Max Force.
Yep I got the same impression
The density of silly-bizarre-rambly stretches in this video was definitely higher than usual; after a couple of minutes I was like "did he start drinking or take something else before doing this?"
Not that I didn't enjoy those stretches anyway, just confirming you're not imagining things.
I'll always admit when I'm high in a video; I wasn't high in this one. Just very drowsy from both the Benadryl and the humidity. If I was high, I wouldn't be doing a solo vlog, because I wouldn't be able to ramble like this. Being high actually makes me kinda quiet and not as talkative.
I wasn't saying you were lying, of course, just confirming I got a similar impression of you behaving differently than usual. :)
Maybe you addressed this question some time before, but I'll ask anyway: what's the word on Shot on Shitteo? Thanks!
Geek Squad? Why? Do you LIKE wasting money? Most store bought computers have a recovery partition. Just reinstall Windows yourself. Easy, painless, and free.
It was still under warranty and free; and I tried re-installing Windows and it was refusing. So, yeah. All fixed and didn't cost me a penny.
I supplied the chatterbox beer knowing nothing about it, except for only made in MI and the name. I am more of a hard cider guy. Hey, how many fans are from MI? Bloomfield Hills aka snobbyville here.
Grand Rapids Michigan, shop smart shop S mart
I always bring my boomstick when I go shopping, haha
My god... Drinking sake in a hotel bar?! Fuck that. Gimme a dive bar with loud music and cheap beer. When I was 20, I was drinking Natty Light, Genesse, Beast Ice, and Mad Dog.
If I had money, I sure as hell wouldn't be drinkin sake and martinis. Gimmie gallons of Guinness, whiskey, schnapps, and spiced rum.
What a unique perspective! Tell us more!
Lloyd meows so loudly that I almost think my own cats in the hall are crying haha
This is the first time i can say I've had something you are trying. We actually visited the brewery that saki was made at in Berkley, brought a bottle of that unfiltered saki home with us, it was our favorite of the taste testing we tried.
While the Crab Crackers weren't Mashkey-level horrible they were somewhat entertaining.
Dear Mr. Cinema Brad, crabs are not in fact fish. They are invertebrates without fins or teeth, possessing an exoskeleton, and are in fact crustaceans of the order Arthropoda. I object to your anti-scientific blasé attitude toward taxonomic classification.
Since you like sake Brad, do you like it the way James Bond likes it especially served at the correct temperature?
Are you drunk in this video?
Nope, just very drowsy.
Sour pussy? Think you just earned your Red Wings.
Brad, I can safely say the bean cakes you tried in this video are highly representative of the bean cakes I sent to you. Tho perhaps with a bit more taste, since those bean cakes of yours were packaged and such.
Who knew THAT movie had product tie-ins?
That impromptu ramble at the imaginary person without a cloudy drink was odd to watch but strangely hilarious, especially with the "sad night" ending. I like Weird Brad.
Hahaha he bit the crab and all hell broke loose!
Ladies and Gents, The sake and all of the food, yes including the crab snacks, were all on me. I never inflect on others that I haven't inflicted on myself and let me tell you the worst part of the crabs is the fact that you HAVE to chew it. A lot. But the flavor wants you to get it out of your mouth as fast as possible, but you can't, but you gotta chew the shell down. In short, it is the worst thing I've put in my mouth.
*pauses for snickering*
Anyway, sorry Brad, if you want you can bring the worst thing imaginable to the next Chicago Con and I'll eat it on camera as repentance for making you eat something that still has a face.
(PS - I Doubt Lloyd or Chloe would eat the crabs considering NONE of the three cats in the apartment I was staying at that weekend would touch those things.)
Brad, if you haven't thrown the crabs out yet please send them to Spoony.
Hey! Then it's like I gave Noah crabs!
"I would rather suck someone's crab covered cock"
"I umped up the hiton"
Nice show. I have to say youa re a trooper with that tiny crab that looked awful.
The pocky you had reminds me of 'Men's Pocky' I had a number of years ago from my local Japanese market. It tasted like grass clippings... But I ate them all... one by one.
Did you maintain eye contact with the shopkeep while doing so?
Ha! No, but in retrospect, that would have been priceless.
Ehh, don't be a baby about the crab. Down in Maryland, you can get a softshell crab sandwich and they're *DELICIOUS*.
matcha is green tea so it was a green tea flavoring or powder mixed with chocolate. Often you find snacks from japan with matcha flavoring and it tastes fishy idk why.
That Pocky you tried is a mix of Green Tea and Chocolate. The regular Green Tea Pocky is actually quite good buy itself. I have yet to try the Matcha Chocolate, but I have a box from Ikasucon.
As someone who drinks at least one cup of green tea per day, the Matcha Chocoloate basically feels like two individually great flavors that just don't go as well together. It does taste somewhat better with actual green tea to drink with however.
Is it just me, or was Brad on speed this entire episode?
given the wreckless eating quotes i'm guessing some sort of cheap energy drink
Other people accused him of being high or drunk.
How about a new vee log series called "Guess what Brad is on"
my comment was purely in jest, but i'd watch that
Next Time: Brad Tries Mescaline!
Figures that the one item in recent memory that Brad spits out would have a found footage ending.
All we needed was Dave screaming profanity at the top of his lungs and when the camera pans back Brad's standing in the corner of the room and the vlog abruptly ends.
For your virus problem try malwarebytes and spybot both are a great idea. Same with trying a linux distro like debian base since linux doesn't require anti-viruses because you're less likely to have a virus from linux than you are on windows or OSX. Not to mention linux is free to download, light weight, doesn't eat up CPU mem. If you don't want to switch to linux all the way try dual booting with linux and windows or vertual box.
The "rice cakes" I believe are daifuku, jelly filling wrapped in mochi (glutinous rice cake). Usually the jelly is azuki (red bean) which has a pleasant and mild sweetness to it, but I don't think that's what was in those. Have you had azuki in other circumstances such as in milk tea? It's quite good, surprisingly even in ice cream. I'm not much for matcha (green tea) myself, so you're in good company there.
First off, good to see you at the con again.
As for your computer problem... try out this anti-virus called Kaspersky. One of THE best anti-virus programs you can get. A bit pricey but worth is weight in gold.
Lloyd might like those crabs. Cats love stinky shit.
Matcha is a special kind of green tea from japan that comes in powder form and is very green and not translucent
Candied sesame crabs are the absolute best. Though, the shrapnel of the shells the next day leaves something to be desired. Not a very long shelf life when they're opened, but fantastic snacks.
surge is back baby!
Whether strange, gimmicky, foreign, or decades old... Brad tries it!
