Last Seen…Talking About Virtual Realities – MiGS Ep. 242

4/18/2018
More
There are people who believe our reality is that we are all part of a computer simulation. Futurists say that's not true, but that we will one day soon live in virtual worlds of our own devising. Others say that any kind of virtual realities will never happen because we all look silly with big headsets strapped to our faces. We can argue about these points, but one thing's certain: with recent leaps in virtual and augmented realities, big changes to technology are coming -- and that's...

Last Seen...Finding Themselves: MiGS Ep. 52 (Classic)

4/13/2018
More
No audio intro today, kids, as your old pal Shawn JUST finished renovating his bathroom and is making no verbal sense right now. Scars? Oh yes, I have scars. *Blaze of Glory plays* I remember this episode was fun, although I remember starting it with a regrettable "Who the fuck is you?" Anywho, enjoy this classic episode. Back next week with a new one. *Blaze of Glory cuts off*

Last Seen…Arguing – MiGS Ep. 241

4/4/2018
More
Go online, and you'll see people arguing about things. Sit around in public long enough, and you'll see people arguing. Hell, many people grew up with parents and other family arguing. Sometimes it's arguing decent points, but other times it's just tense humans yelling at each other for the sake of yelling. This week, we're all about arguing...don't tell us we're wrong! * * * We kick it off with the first arguments we remember hearing and then talk about the last arguments we've...

Last Seen…Talking About Appearances – MiGS Ep. 240

3/20/2018
More
Look in the mirror and what do you see? Sure, there you are, but do you like what's reflected back at you? Do you sometimes think about ways to improve your appearance? It's hard not to look anywhere, really, and not think about appearance: magazines, commercials, and the shows and movies we watch often assault us with the mantra that we are nothing, unless we look as slick as these perfect people. (Who probably also have image issues.) This episode ran much longer than our typical...

Last Seen...Changing Lives! MiGS Ep. 148 (Classic)

3/15/2018
More
I believe it was the great philosopher James Van Der Beek who once said "I don't want yur laafe." What James was really looking for was something that would change his own life, rather than blindly following the path that was laid out for him in that one-horse football town where he hacked a computer and started a countdown to nuclear war. So I might have fallen asleep when that movie was on and woken up during Wargames. Which, you know, is a pretty good movie too. This podcast is about...

Last Seen…Talking about Fast Food – MiGS Ep. 239

3/8/2018
More
Another rough day at work. You drove in with the faint blur of the sunrise on the eastern horizon, and now you're heading home and looking at the sun going down in the west. You're tired and you don't feel like cooking. So you pull into the line... From a speaker at the bottom of a big menu sitting outside in the cold: "Welcome to Taco-Taco; how may I help you?" The next night: "Welcome to Burger-Burger; how may I help you?" And later that week: "Welcome to Chicken-Chicken; how may I...

Last Seen...Being Manly! MiGS Ep. 177 (Classic)

3/1/2018
More
See ya, motorscooters. I'm off to get a job with a drill. I say in the intro to this one that I don't really have a reason I picked this particular episode, but that might not be entirely true. Subconsciously, I might have been thinking about the disease of toxic masculinity, and the fake manhood that some people wear to pretend they're bigger, braver, and stronger than they are (unless we all believe Tiny Hands would have REALLY charged into a school shooting unarmed, which we do...

Last Seen…Talking about Income Inequality – MiGS Ep. 238

2/21/2018
More
Yes, it's time once again for one of those "serious" episodes of Men in Gorilla Suits. Polish your monocle and tell your butler to bring you a 25-year-old fine scotch...this time around, the subject is income inequality... * * * We begin with what seems like a question with an obvious answer, but for some people...well, it isn't: Do you think there’s a problem with income inequality in this country? After that we chat about income classes we've lived in during our lives...as well as...

Last Seen...Combining Minisodes! MiGS Ep. 237b

2/15/2018
More
And sometimes, you go to a store and they give you leftovers. But sometimes, some of those leftovers are clips of audio you hadn't heard before and I really didn't think out this metaphor and I'm going to back out, thank you! In an effort to prove that yes, we really do talk like this even when we're not podcasting, we originally released two mini episodes: one on candy and one on Star Trek (again). In our most recent recording, Christopher captured another minisode, which has now been...

Last Seen…Talking about Marijuana – MiGS Ep. 237

First: Today marks exactly five years since we loaded the first episode of Men in Gorilla Suits. Now, on to this week's episode... * * * Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuude... Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuude... Duuuuuu-- Duuuuuuuuuuuude, is that pizza? This week, we're talking about marijuana. (And just because Christopher mentions the tune, there's this:) * * * We kick off this week's episode talking about when we first became aware of marijuana. After that, we...

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

2/1/2018
More
Shawn rolled 1D20 for charisma. He got a zero. Somehow. Christopher 1D20 rolled for INT. He got a 19. Life ain't fair, motherfuckers. And neither are roleplaying games. But we take a(nother) look at them in this week's episode! Marvel at both gorillamen's awkward teen (and adult) years! Listen to the power rankings of the best and worst RPGs of all time! Stay up all night and play some damn games! Oh, to quote Shawn, "HEY MR. PUBILLONES I'M JUST MAKIN' SOME COFFEE CUZ I DON'T WANT MY...

Last Seen…Talking about Healthcare – MiGS Ep. 236

1/24/2018
More
We're trying to think of something funny to say about healthcare in the United States, but it's really a situation of being so sad one can cry. Even those with coverage and savings are one serious incident away from bankruptcy. Just thinking about it can be unhealthy. Still, somewhere along the way in this week's episode, we did crack a joke or two. If you have been through it, prepare to nod your head and say, "Yup...been there..." And if you're from one of the Western countries that...

Last Seen...Being Apathetic! MiGS Ep. 108 (Classic)

1/18/2018
More
Meh. Whatever, bro. It's a classic episode, or something. About... I didn't bother to listen to it. It's about something. I assume. So, like, enjoy it. Or don't. I'm not the boss of you.

Last Seen...Talking about Ghosts – MiGS Ep. 235

BooooOOOOOOoOooOooOOOOoooooOOooooooo... G-g-g-ghoooOOOooOOooOOOoOOOOOoooooosts... SpooOOOOooOOOOOOOOOOoooOOOOOOoooky... We have cereal named after ghosts. Some of our biggest movies are about ghosts. As a species, we're obsessed with ghosts. So this week, we strap on our proton packs and go a-ghost huntin'! * * * Right away, we establish if we believe in ghosts...or think they're bullshit. After that, we chat about people close to us who believe in ghosts...and if we've ever had...

Last Seen…Spotting Aliens: MiGS Ep. 70 (Classic)

1/4/2018
More
The aliens think they can just come into this country and take our jobs, get on our welfare, not pay taxes, and commit crimes! In this country! Look, I'm not saying it's everyone. But they're not sending us their best gleep-glorps. They're sending their vaporizers, their warp-jackers, and their intergalactic scum. And some of them, I assume, are good gleep-glorps. But they're coming here to commit crimes, and anything else the media tells you is just fake news. That's why the gorillamen...

Last Seen...Talking about White People - MiGS Ep. 234

12/28/2017
More
To hear it from some people (like, say...an orange-tinged shitlord with a sulfurous-looking hairdo who's presumable in charge of the Western world), white people have it soooooooooo hard! That a middle-aged (or Baby Boomin') white guy can say with a straight face, "There's no other group who has it worse than Christian white males," says so much about white privilege. And so, Gorilla Shawn thought two white guys talking about white people would make for a good episode...and it did....

MiGS Ep. 57 (Classic): Last Seen…Being Greedy

12/22/2017
More
Christopher and Shawn are both white dudes (if you didn't already know this, it'll definitely become clear next week), but they're somehow not greedy assholes. That's one of many reasons neither of them will be elected to the Senate, because they're just not greedy enough. With the new tax bill that just passed with the explicit aim of funneling still more money to the richest one percent of the country, it seemed like a good time to revisit the episode they did way back when (in 1848, I...

MiGS Ep. 155 (Classic): Last Seen...In High School!

12/7/2017
More
Christopher was a Dragon! Shawn was a Thunderbird! This episode is METAL AS FUCK! Oh, wait, no it isn’t. Those were their high school mascots. And Shawn’s wasn’t named after the mythical Native American beast, or even the massive car by Ford… nope, it was named after the Air Force Aerobatics team. NERRRRRRDDDDD. Did the Gorillamen dig high school? Were they the kings of the commons, or the nerds no one talked to? Are they still true to their schools? What stupid voices will Shawn do this...

Men in Gorilla Suits Ep. 232: Last Seen... Fucking Up!

11/28/2017

Greetings and Felicitations, noble pod-people! Yes, I think I carried that off quite well. No way I fucked up that greeting! I am totally passing for one of you hew-mans! Today on the magical internet radiola programme, we're talking about all the times we fucked up! See, there's times when you just don't get it right, and it's kinda your fault. But that's OK! The Gorillamen aren't here to judge, because, as you will learn in this podcast, we're kind of masters of fucking up. We start,...
