BRB Boom 56 Part 2: Still Real Talk

  1. Just an FYI, those issues with the forum post you think you saw were not real and were most certainly not my fault…

    In either case, thanks for all the GTAV talk guys.

  2. Thanks for the show guys – it’s always cool to hear from you and it’s amazing how you’re so well adjusted and taking what’s happened really well. The jokes were very bad taste, but I laughed all the same, because they were actually funny.

    I’m actually very glad you guys are so “real” – keep talking about whatever you wanna talk about fellas, no matter what it is, it’s always a great laugh.

  3. There’s been a lot of support on twitter for these past two episodes.

     

    Want to say we appreciate the kind words!  

     

    And we already have 2 more episodes in the bag.  The Boom show isn’t slowing down my friends.

    Did anyone else think that the long fingernail conversation was going to lead to a life affirming analogy about triumph over adversity and grief, cherishing your loved one’s etc….No?
    Always a good listen guys. Inappropriate humour at the most inappropriate time is the best stuff ever. Although it does get the “the look” on occasion.
    Keep ’em coming, oh and not all of us are on Twitter, don’t forget to show the first world problem people you care!

    Great past 2 episodes guys. I was laughing my ass off at the constant mentions of Waffle Stomps, but I feel for you guys and send my condolences to you and your families for the loss of Big Bill. Hearing so much about him makes me think he was a great guy and makes me wish I knew him.

    Not the same thing, but I lost my Grandfather about a year and a 1/2 ago. He was old though. He lived to almost 85. He was a war veteran and lived his last days in a VA hospital. He overcame a lot in his last couple years and seemed like he never wanted to give up life. Several times doctors were amazed he pulled thru. It was a stroke that really did it in for him and he passed a few months after. Even then he was a fighter. I’m happy he got to meet my now 2 year old son. Nothing made him happier then to see him but he always said “I will never get to see him grow up”…which was damn sad to hear.

    I messaged you guys earlier on twitter and sincerely like your Three Really Large Males song. I probably listened to the last 10 minutes of the podcast about 12 times today since the boulder/pebble analogy. Jim with his bad jokes sort of reminds me of my grandfather. He would say some real corny things too. Like every birthday he would wish me a “Crappy Birthday” jokingly or whenever he saw me he would say something like “Wow! You really Gruesome” (grew some).

     

    Any chance you guys will release a downloadable MP3 of Three Really Large Men? I really enjoy it.

    To DDiHC, SP, and also YF,
    I’ve listened to this podcast and shared it with a good friend who is a casual gamer and a youth director. We both talked about how he should play these last two episodes for his youth group.

    Because I think that it’s important for people to listen to your story… it’s important for us to stop and allow this “real” talk to sink in. Neither my frient or I are Mormons (We are Methodist, but that’s beside the point). I’ve always appreciated your cander and your willingness to state who you are, and share your personal lives with the online community.

    To you three, I regret that I don’t know you guys IRL. I lost my dad when I was 14, and now being 41 I’m at that age were I’m starting to realize what I actually lost. So as you might expect, listening to these two episodes has had an unexpected effect on me, but I count myself blessed for having listening.

    To you guys, I offer a humble condolence, not only to the two brothers, but to YF as well, because we know that Big Jim’s passing is a loss for you as well.

    I love you guys and hope that some day will get a chance to meet you all.

    With bro-love,
    Sebastian

    Thank you so much for Sharing your loss.  

    You brought back a lot of memories of my own loss.  May 7th 2013 was the day my wife passed at the age of 47.   She had a stroke a month earlier and I took time off work to care for her 24-7.   I was gone 5 weeks and she was feeling a lot better so she told me to go back to work.  That was Mon. may 6th and and following day she passed away.   She passed away quickly and was gone before any family could even get to hospital.   We never had time to say good bye,  so god blessed you and and families for having that time with your father before he pas

    Totally agree with you about the time we got to spend with him before he died. I have felt like, from a man who spent his whole life serving and providing for his family, this was his last act of service, to persist in a broken shell so that we could come to peace with his departure. Sadly, though, this is rarely the case in accidental deaths, as you have pointed out. I can’t imagine going through what you have with your wife’s passing, and am incredibly humbled by your response to our episodes. If there’s anything we can ever do for you or your family, let us know. I’ve got a bunch of Xbox 360 games that we all know I’ll probably never play again, and I can write bad lyrics to bad Karaoke versions of good songs, so there’s two things, maybe. We love you man, and will be praying for/thinking about you.

    Thank you.

    As I’ve mentioned on these forums before you guys without even knowing it have helped me through some shitty times in the past few years but also been with me through some landmark points in my life, i feel honored and somewhat humbled that you’d think to share with us and am so glad that you did.

     

    Surprisingly for a couple of guys I’ve never met (although you’ve been in my headphones for so long your more like schizophrenic brethren) you nearly moved me to tears and as someone is isn’t that far off your ages made me appreciate what i have and more so, what I could lose.

     

    Thank you again for including us and if ever we can do anything to help I’m sure you’d have our support in droves.

     

    Tom.

    These last two shows were grueling to get through at times and I felt myself choking up several times.

    I truly admire how you guys have handled this great loss. I lost my biological father when I was 5 and my step-father who raised me since I was 12 when i was 27 years old or about 10 years ago.

    Thanks for sharing your experience with the listeners. It was a difficult listen at times but ultimately affirming.

    I hope the Boom lives on for many many more episodes.

    Take care guys.
