TFGT/CDAR News, Updates, What's Going On, etc.

Hello everyone! Carlos here, from the award-winning [citation needed] podcast Two Fat Guys Talk and Time magazine's "most influential new video series of our time" [again this is going to require a freakin' citation] Carlos and Dave Anime Rave. I'm the loud over-talkative one that hates everything you love and advocates for everything you despise.

I want to talk a bit about Two Fat Guys Talk (TFGT, the bestest most awesomest abbreviation ever) and the Carlos and Dave Anime Rave (CDAR, possibly a better abbreviation). Specifically, our plans, the status of specific projects, and so on in that fashion until some semblance of an informative post takes shape. Here goes.

Right now, I'm in between day jobs, which means I should have tons of time to edit and put out new content (I do the editing and publishing), but I don't. It's a combination of many things: looking for new work (including potentially just going freelance), working on my spec scripts and manuscripts (there's a reason I blow a lot of hot air about any sort of fiction), familial/social obligations, and actually spending some time consuming the very entertainment I hope to be involved in making someday.

That's why you haven't been seeing new content every single day, though I think I've been pretty good at updating a couple times a week or so. But the CDAR backlog has grown rather large, and combined with wanting to put out videos on new shows reasonably quickly, I'm tailoring my approach to tackling the work ahead of me.

[Review] Sword Art Online eps. 1-2

The first video is the episode hosted on YouTube; if it's down due to some bogus copyright claim, hit the jump (i.e., click Read more below) and watch the second video instead.


Carlos and Dave finally upload one of their older raves (possibly even their first) that they never got around to actually putting up: Sword Art Online episodes 1 and 2. It starts off strong. Spoiler alert: Dave felt it stayed there, but Carlos did not.

[Review] Gravity Falls eps. 4-5

From the award-winning [citation needed] podcast Two Fat Guys Talk comes the Carlos and Dave Anime Rave! It's pretty self-explanatory, really.

We've already seen up to season 2 episode 11 of Gravity Falls and are eagerly awaiting episode 12 this summer. So we're a little behind, but here's more of our take on the earlier eps. Enjoy!

e068: Sixty-Eight? The Sixty-Eighth Episode of the Podcast!

e068: Sixty-Eight? The Sixty-Eighth Episode of the Podcast!



Today Carlos and Dave work without an outline and talk about various, um, things.

Notable timestamps:

0:02:30 - Mighty No. 9 demo impressions.

0:09:20 - Elder Scrolls 6: Valenwood talk. Just how is that pesky word pronounced?

0:14:33 - Does Mortal Kombat really need Fatalities to stay relevant and cool and hype and whatnot? We talk about this for quite a bit, including crossover implications. Also assorted fighting game topics for conversation.

0:41:43 - E3 2015 conference predictions!

0:49:56 - What’s a podcast without voicemails from Meowth (http://twitter.com/meowth900)? Not much of a podcast I’d say! She talks about anime/manga, Gravity Falls, Steven Universe, school assignments, Mario Kart DLC, Patreon, and a bunch more.
