Episode 100 – The Kentennial

Episode 100 – The Kentennial published on No Comments on Episode 100 – The Kentennial

The 100th episode spectacular of Up a Paddle, as posted on October 24th, 2010.

Yes, I finally have 100 episodes under my belt and it only took me four years.  Boy, if I had a penny for every episode I did, I’d have a loonie.  A Saskatchewan Roughriders’ Loonie, in fact.   And I do.  Woo!  Of course, if I could only have a penny for every good episode, I think I’d owe money.   Just like George Lucas owes me for the Prequels.

Anyways, because of this Achievement of 100 eppys being unlocked, I take time in this episode to reminisce about the past, realize that this show’s past wasn’t all that great, and look forward to the future.  I also contemplate ways that I can improve things around here.  For starters, I can do less reminiscing and just start miniscing more.  Better miniscing. The kind of miniscing they did in the good old days, when men were men and women were secretaries.  I’ve been watching a lot of Mad Men lately.  I also talk about Gamecation 2010 and review Sin and Punishment: Star Successor for the Wii.

Also, for no particular reason: The Aldo Kelrast Saga.  Please ignore the spelling mistakes and grammatical errors as I have not yet had a chance to tune up the article.

Duke Nukem Forever to be released in 2011.  Check out this list of everything that things that have happened since this game was first announced.

Netflix now streaming in Canada.  Now if we could get Hulu and a few others on board, I would be sitting pretty.

Back to the Future is celebrating it’s 25th anniversary and Mattel has the toy rights.  Where’s my jetpack …  I mean, hoverboard?

Sin and Punishment: Star Successor (for the Wii).

Sense.  This game makes none.  And that’s a-ok with me.

Promotional Consideration given to:
Eeeper’s Choice  – I feel bad for Eeeper.  Since the libsyn site was upgraded to version 3.4, this podcast is no longer available in his region.  Yeah, everywhere but Ireland.  Drat. Feel free to torrent it, though.

Anime 82 – Regan is back after his hiatus and should be finishing the Mecha Madness podcast series soon, which I’m eagerly looking forward to.  I’ve learned from that series that there are several excellent robot shows that I need to watch.  Right after the K-on movie.   Also, he keeps teasing us with mentions of his band.  I want to hear some music. darn it.

Anime Pacific – Be sure to check out their live show later tonight!  Details can be found here. Unless you are reading this after the fact, which you certainly are.  In that case, be sure to grab a time machine and catch the live show.  Or watch their recording of it, after the fact.

In the meantime, please read this open letter addressed to the fine gentlemen at Anime Pacific that I’ve been asked to pass on to them.  This is from Dr. Jack Hoffer.
