E14 Exchange

(Editor’s note – this conversation took place on the day the E14 podcast went up).
Brad: Your review is excellent today.
Rob : Cheers man.
Rob : Why do you like it so much? Or are you worried I'd cry without some praise today?
Brad: Informative and funny - exactly what our reviews should be. Sometimes we're a little too serious with our reviews, IMO, myself included.
Rob : Ahhh ok.
Brad: And I was worried you were going to cry.

Brad: There's a Mockbuster coming out called...
Brad: ...Ready for this?
Rob : Go on.
Brad: Chop Kick Panda.
Rob : ...What?
Brad: See what they did there?
Rob : Got paid money for *literally* nothing?

Brad: They call me the workin' man!
Rob : Clearly *they* don't actually see you at work…

Rob : Incidentally, would you pronounce Steine sty-nuh or steen?
Brad: Sty-nuh
Rob : I'm not going mad then.
Rob : The entirety of Brighton is, pronouncing it Old Steen…
Brad: It's obviously of Germanic origin. And that would be sty-nuh.
Rob : That's my argument.
Brad: If they're going to be that retarded, you may have to upgrade 'argument' into 'kung-fu fight'.
Rob : Or ‘Chop Kick Fight’.

Rob : Man, I’m glad not to do the Tunbridge Wells journey anymore.
Brad: That rough?
Rob : Nah, just time-consuming. A short bus journey is infinitely preferable. That's 'short bus journey', not 'shortbus journey', just to clarify.

Rob : Why did Cthulhu cross the road?
Brad: I don't know. Why did Cthulhu cross the road?
Rob : I don't know either, it's driving me crazy.

Rob : Great news about Freddy Kruger being a downloadable character in Mortal Kombat, I was just playing the other day and thinking 'Why can't I play as a child molestor?'

Brad: You all right, mate?
Rob : Yeah, just hating Apple's faces.
Fucking iPod syncing is so much more difficult than it needs to be.
Brad: Yup.
Rob : Found the option now, it should be fine.
Brad: I always find it takes two of three attempts to plug the fucking things in and for iTunes to recognise them. I have no idea how such a shittily programmed product line/OS has become so popular.
Rob : Perceived prestige? They like two things: Design and Control. Unfortunately, the popularity of the first means the frustration of the second for the end user. Or at least, the end user who isn't a cunt.

Rob : Think Duke Nukem Forever is worth £1.80 of my own money?
Brad: I would pay £1.80 to never have to play a Duke Nukem game ever again. It's a matter of perspective.
Rob : Your answer brings up a good point. What the fuck am I asking *you* for?

Rob : Apparently I now have a Facebook email account. What the fuck just happened?
Brad: What?
Rob : Apparently your FB messages acct can now be assigned an email address.
Brad: I'm...good?
Rob : ...That's nice...

  1. When I first moved down here I pronounced it "Steyne". It seemed to make sense (particularly as a northerner) and it also made the name of the little cafe based there make sense as a pun: "Frank-In-Steine".

    Of course now the cafe has been renamed "Tina's Place" - because that is much more memorable and fun - and I have switched to saying "Steen" because that's what everyone else does, and I'm tired of jokes about my pronunciation as it is. ;)
