Last Seen...Working Side Gigs

5/15/2019

Yo! Like, we never tell you about how Men in Gorilla Suits has afforded us, the Gorillamen, ridiculous side cash! You might think we do this out of love for just making the damn thing, but why make the damn thing if it doesn't make a lot of side money, right? Men in Gorilla Suits has made us rich! Ridiculously so, but...we work day jobs just because it's funny for the show. Really, we're cutting-edge entrepreneurs, out there on the fringes of society, hustling all the time and...

Last Seen...Working from Home

4/18/2019
More
Working from home used to be the domain of fancy-pants novelists and snooty painters. Now, it's likely your schlub of a neighbor has worked from home. We say this with confidence, being those very schlubs. Like anything, there are good and bad things about working from home. (Although Gorilla Christopher will argue it's all good.) Working from home is the topic of this week's Men in Gorilla Suits...recorded in our homes on a Sunday night... * * * We kick it off talking about...

Last Seen...Talking about Trust

More
You'll just have to trust us that this episode is good... * * * We kick it off with our first memories of trusting someone, and then talk about how important trust is to one's existence. Find out who we trust most today...and what role trust plays in this podcast. Next, we chat about how much we trust institutions like religion, corporations, and governments. After that, find out if our trust has ever been betrayed by someone...and if we have ever betrayed someone's...

Men in Gorilla Suits automated show notes. READY > 10 print Butt > 20 goto 10 > run_ [Laughter ensues…] * * * We begin with the first example of automation we remember seeing, and then move on to the most recent. After that, we chat about if we (and most people) could lose jobs to automated machines or algorithms. What will humans do if machines and algorithms take over a significant number of jobs? We talk about that a bit before moving on to if automation frightens...

(Classic) Last Seen...Playing Role Playing Games! MiGS Ep. 138

You know that thing we did last week? We also did something similar three and a half years ago. I know. It's like some Matrix shit.

Last Seen...Playing Dungeons and Dragons

You leave Radigast City at the break of dawn, traveling north until reaching an unnamed river. For days, the water is your guide as lush earth gives way to dreary moors and tangled thickets. Finally, in the distance, you see a white plume of smoke rising from a mountain in the distance. Two miles from the volcano, you find a suitable cave in which to store your supplies. "Dead Knoll's Eye Socket," your guide says. "This is where I take leave. Good luck." With your traveling...

Sometimes we go places. In the past, we went places. This is about that.

Last Seen...Talking about Parody and Satire

2/21/2019
More
Gorilla Christopher initially thought about opening Photoshop and adding your favorite podcasters' faces to images of celebrities known for parody and satire. But swapping faces with Weird Al looked like Christopher because he's apparently hair twins with the world's favorite accordion player. So that idea was scrapped. And yes, obviously -- this week's topic: Parody and Satire. * * * We begin by talking about the first parody or satire we remember -- and then leap to the best...

I am so, so extremely sorry. Please try to remain courageous in the face of this abomination, this second episode of Men in Gorilla Suits. Actually, I haven't listened yet. It might be great. Spoiler alert: It isn't.

Gorilla Christopher hoped to have this episode online yesterday, but he was tired and decided a busy week merited sleep, instead. Here's what the gorillamen are talking about this week:

It is currently 53 degrees with mostly clear skies in the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex. Weekend lows will be in the 30s, with afternoon temperatures reaching 60 by Sunday afternoon. A perfect weekend for getting out and about! This week, we're talking about the weather...specifically:

Y'all know me. You know how I make a living. I'll find your mess for you, but it ain't gonna be easy. Bad mess. Not like goin' down to the basement and chasin' tax returns and odd socks. No movin’, no organizin’, down you go. And we gotta do it quick, that’ll bring back your family, put all your surfaces on a cleanin’ basis. But it’s not gonna be pleasant. I value my neck a lot more than three thousand bucks, chief.

Ho ho ho, and happy birthday! It's Hanukkah-time in Gift City, so stock up for Administrative Professionals' Day! What? You didn't get the biggest teddy bear on the planet for your loved on on Valentine's Day? What kind of monster are you?! You better be ready for deep mattress price reductions come Labor Day. Shop, shop, shop...why, just since beginning to type this, marketers have created three new holidays that come with an expectation of gift-giving. Guess what the Gorillamen are...

Last Seen...Talking About Weapons

12/12/2018
More
Whether we like it or not, weapons shaped human life on the planet. Today, they are big business. At least in the United States, we see weapons from the start: in movies, cartoons, and even in stores. So the Gorillamen decided to pull up a couple chairs and talk about weapons this week. * * * We begin with the first weapons we remember...and the weapons we regularly feared as children. After that, find out if we own any weapons -- and our favorite (and coolest) weapons we've ever...

(Classic) Last Seen...Volunteering! MiGS Ep. 159

12/7/2018
More
So we're a day late and short some vocals today, because Shawn's internet decided to crap out for 40-odd hours. Normally, that wouldn't throw too much of a wrench into things, but Shawn is shorter on time during this part of the year... because he does a lot of volunteering. As it is today, so too was it when this classic episode was recorded, over 50 years ago. I have no concept of time.

Perhaps you like theater. (Maybe you've even performed in a theater company.) Or...perhaps your family argues all the time and pumps passive aggressiveness through their veins. Drama comes in many forms... It's also the topic of this week's episode of Men in Gorilla Suits! * * * We begin with our first encounter of drama in any form. After that, we chat about the periods in our lives that saw the most drama (external to us). Find out if we enjoy or even cause drama...and where we...
