Let Us Talk About “Walkers”
Musically, we opened up the show with RE: Your Brains by Jonathan Coulton
As some of you know, most of the staff at this station are HUUUUUGE Walking Dead fans. Brian and I actually have a hard time getting to the news stories sometimes because we start the Monday night Tech Net News and Opinion Show off with a quick review of the week’s previous episode. Brian and I thought we might do a Walking Dead only podcast. We hope you enjoy it and welcome your opinion.
2012.05.07 – Through Gamer Goggles News
Welcome to another episode of Through Gamer Goggles News. This week we will be focusing more on video games than normal but it also converges with the set of Warhammer 40K. Listen in as we discuss the latest gaming news. We opened this show with You’ve Got Hogwarts by Robert Lund who is a member of The Funny Music Project or The FuMP for short.
New chat Box from Chatwig for 40k
The Warhammer 40K franchise has already reached thousands of players all over the world. This can be proven by looking at various Warhammer 40K websites and blogs. The fan base is still growing because Warhammer 40K’s story is not yet concluded. This major gaming niche never missed the eyes of Chatwing’s developers. This is why they created a website chat tool that can help Warhammer 40K fans connect with each other and share their gaming experiences.

FFG LAunches New Player finder/Social Network
From Purple Pawn
“Calling it the Community Wizard, Fantasy Flight Games has launched a new online tool that allows gamers to record their collection, connect with other gamers, find retailers, and register for events. Officially still in the beta testing phase, the tool is currently accessible by all registered users on FFG’s website. Unfortunately,Community Wizard is limited to FFG games. Nevertheless, I’m impressed with how easy it is to use, how focused it is on getting players in to more games, and how much support it offers to retailers and games clubs.”
Talisman Blood Moon Expansion June 1
100 new cards for the classic Talisman board game. New spells and characters, alternative endings
Blood moon will add a gripping layer of gothic horror to the game.
In addition to new challenges Blood Moon will bring two new mechanics: Time alternates between “day” and “night”, and a bloodthirsty Werewolf prowls the land.
A new time card id placed at the center of the board. Whenever a player draws one or more Event cards he/she flips the card to mark the passage of time. Night and Day have various gameplay effects. Like being turned into a werewolf. Werewolves have special rules.
To close we went with a zombie themed set.
- Beware the Dangers of a Ghost Scorpion with Zombie Dance Party

Halloween Themed LumpCast
I decided to to another Halloween themed, eclectic genre podcast. I played:
Before we get started, this show is recorded live late Friday nights. It is not safe for work or intended for children. We spin parody music and sometimes it goes a good lunar orbit or two past any type of PG rating. So get a glass of water and swallow our disclaimer pill and let us all freak and geek out on Friday nights.
Lately, the Yippie and I have been off on a bit of Dr. Demento style mood. Who knows maybe we make midnight Friday to do just that? What else would a station indie music geeks and IRC addicts do on a Friday night? Meshelly and I talk less frequently this podcast but stick around for a longer last call than usual where we ramble on about various news articles Indie Nation covered this week.
I am also starting to add affiliate links. I know that many of you love this music, this show and these artist. Please feel free to use the links to purchase CDs and MP3s and thereby support the artists and, at the same time, help the Lumpster reduce the cost dent of all of this. As usual, we would like to remind our listeners that we find the majority of our tunage at Mevio’s Music Alley and you can get many of the tracks there for 99 cents.
