Have you ever wanted to play a game AS the Mooninites? Big mistake, buster. Samuel of the Cosmos (Nick Gibbons) gets to play such a game, and it sucks ass. We dive into the fourth AquaDonk Side Piece and talk about video game let downs, alternate options for how this short could have played out, and this short's relation to Plantasm.

Nick Gibbons (ATHF, YPF, As Seen On Adult Swim) is fun to talk to. How fun, you stupidly ask? Well, I only intended to chat with him for 30 minutes as an addendum to my coverage of "Moon Master 9: Beware The Gorgotron"-- but the conversation easily went on longer and became its own episode. Playing Samuel of the Cosmos, as well as editing on/producing the AduaDonk Side Piece, Nick has also spoofed streamers in his other work. We dive into his time on the short/AquaDonk Side Pieces, touch on Nick's other streamer spoofs (Final Deployment 4, ThundaClap!), and we also learn which game disc Nick wants to take a dump on. 
Other topics discussed include editing ATHF from home with little kids, Nick's thoughts on Shake Like Me being removed from streaming, and the frustration/jealousy/rewards of being a content creator.

The | Aqua Teen Hunger Force

Monday Oct 10, 2022

Monday Oct 10, 2022

Want to know the quickest way to get your roommate to move out? Easy! Just emulate Mr David Lynch I'm On TV. In this episode of Aqua Teen, Frylock moves out, Shake keeps on doing whatever he wants, and Meatwad suffers. Plus, Carl falls out of an ambulance. We also see Frylock get rejected by Ned Hastings and Jay Wade Edwards. Beyond all of this, The demonstrates why Aqua Teen-- both the TV show and the group-- needs Frylock. Other topics discussed include pink eye, Dr Weird's possible Danzig fandom, and David Lynch's NYC Rat PSA.

Jay Wade Edwards is an Aqua Teen heavy-hitter. Not only was Jay a producer, editor, and voice actor on the show, but he is responsible for many of the in-universe TV shows the Aqua Teens watch, as well as for the special features on the DVDs. Jay still pops in to work on Aqua Teen, such as on the 2021 HBO Max promos, some of the 2022 AquaDonk Side Pieces, and he had a hand in the much anticipated 2022 film Plantasm. Beyond this, Jay has worked for Disney (Gravity Falls, Wander Over Yonder), Netflix (Kid Cosmic), and on other Adult Swim shows (Space Ghost Coast To Coast, Your Pretty Face Is Going To Hell, Squidbillies, etc.)-- to name a few of his credits. Jay also edited the upcoming Matt Servitto directed film A Town Called Purgatory.
When not working on content for pay, Jay spends his time making his own content. With a 2005 feature length film (Stomp! Shout! Scream!), numerous short films (some of which are shot masterfully on iPhone), and even some blogs under his belt, Jay and I had no shortage of things to discuss. Make yourself a tiki drink, put on your skunk ape suit, and enjoy this incredible discussion that I had no business having.

It's been six months, but we're bustin' out Jiggle Billy and getting our dance on. We weave thru all sorts of Aqua Teen topics-- from the Dressing answers Barry Mills gave, to the Baffler Meal Box Set, to music and video game mods inspired by ATHF. We wrap up with Ronnie blabberin' about TLC reality shows, the upcoming Smashing Pumpkins record, and how his favorite game is going away. And more!

If your weird neighbors invited you to Thanksgiving dinner (in December), would you go? No? Well what if the food smells good, does that change your mind? It does? BIG MISTAKE, BUSTER! Because a giant metal turkey from the future (but not really) is gonna mess your day up. SUCKS TO SUCK! In this seasonal return of Cybernetic Ghost of Christmas Past from the Future (sort of?), the Teens are celebrating Thanksgiving, despite what was done to the Martians. We dive into why this episode is called "The Dressing," how it compares to the Season 1 episode, why Ben Prisk made Cybernetic Ghost gold in his illustrations, and the religious values of Frylock. Other topics discussed include Deus Ex: Invisible War, Christopher Columbus, welding, and Dave and Matt not being allowed to make eye contact with Seth Green.

Would you sacrifice your entire identity as a human being for a brief moment of beauty? Carl did, and he paid the ultimate price: he became a clown. In this episode of Aqua Teen, Meatwad's desire for a new termite pet destroys Carl's house and creates easy viewing for the gang to watch Carl get it on. Hayden Ward shows up in this episode voicing the first (English speaking) female character in the show-- however, Hayden has done MUCH MORE for Aqua Teen than this role. Without her the show wouldn't have been as successful as it was. We also touch on the hidden Clown lore of the ATHF world. Other topics discussed include the perspective of "I Want Candy", Britney Spears' face, Runescape 2, and the history of clowns.

Imagine buying a home security system so incredible that it causes aliens to crash land in front of your house. How would you feel? Shocked? Excited? Annoyed? If you choose the last option, you might be Carl. In this episode of Aqua Teen, Carl accidentally summons two incredibly annoying frat bros to Earth, where they inflict a short-lived reign of unwanted sexual advances, vomit, and family braggery. Frylock builds a rocketship, Meatwad defends his sexuality, and Shake watches The Jeffersons in this episode that kicks off the Volume 3 DVD. Ronnie also gets into some ideas ditched from the original script, where "My Dad Owns a Dealership" comes from, and how "Frat Aliens" compares to "The Cubing". Other topics discussed include MySpace's failed server migration, Patton Oswalt's career, and why we use "lbs" for pounds.

We've all met someone like the Wisdom Cube. A guy who just won't. shut. up. He jabbers on about the dumbest stuff you could never care about. Also, he's kind of a douche. Well, in this episode, we get to see the Aqua Teens deal with this paragon of vexation. Witnessing a barrage of "pranks", the Aqua Teens individually get sick of the Wisdom Cube, who turns out to not even be the Wisdom Cube. Jon Schnepp and Brian Posehn bring this "slice-of-life" episode to fruition, all while Carl applies for a restraining order. Other topics discussed include The Radio Dept., Mike Myers allegedly being a diva, and the mystery of Atlanta college band "The Mooninites".
