In this episode, we discuss childhood games--mostly dangerous games. Floor lava/floor sharks/floor sucking you into outer space, baseball-lawndarts, flicking matches, jumping off roofs onto trampolines and into pool, dangerous wrestling moves, karate chops to the neck, Red Rover, make me laugh, ping pong and superballs, sticky hands on ceiling, throwing fire crackers at each other, HORSE, punch buggie...woo! It's a wonder we reached adulthood!
Sasha found a book on Victorian games by Patrick Beaver called The Victorian Parlor Game Book which you can find on Amazon. We have a section called Victorians Play the Darndest Games. Two games Sasha found particularly hilarious: Poor Pussy and Guessing Blind Man.
More discussion on the original Volkswagon Beetle and then we play "Emma's Urban Friend" from 50 Dollar Fine, which was Chris Hoover's old band.
This show was originally recorded before Dragon*con.

I need some advice. I've been unable to add an ID3 tag to my libsyn podcast from the site. What am I missing?
Also, what was the name of the hand held recording device and mics you use?
Thanks in advance!

I remember the party game "I love you honey but I just can't smile". It was lots of fun with a Cub Scout Pack (all boys!) because they had to sit on each other's knees to and look into the other person's eyes to say it. If the other person laughed then they took the first person's place. The Cubs normally laughed!
