Join the Brigade of Minions!

As mentioned in our Cheap levitra online

f=”” target=”_blank”>latest podcast, the Paul and Storm Brigade of Minions is growing every day. Now is the time to join their ranks, ahead of conscription (after which you won’t be able to choose your unit or work details.) Plus, you’ll enjoy all of the benefits that Minionship confers*

And what rigorous test must you pass to become a member of the team? Simple:

  • send us a picture (or a link to a picture) of yourself;
  • include some sort of sign or caption indicating your minion status.

We’ll add you to the gallery, and you can await our eventual call to action. (It’s advisable to keep a knapsack with a 3-day supply of water and Pop Tarts packed at all times, so you’ll be ready to move out at a moment’s notice.)

*still working out the details, but a special Limited Edition Icon for participating in notable Missions is within the realm of possibilities.

    I’m going to have to find an old photo now and place a caption on it. Does that count?

    Ever hear of “Dr. Steel”? Now you have. He’s a musician whose whole shtick is based around the persona of a Mad Scientist, enlisting people into his army of minions in order to create a “Toyland Utopia.”

    It’s all very funny. Until you realize he has hundreds of people around the world have fun pretending to be fascists. Then the concept becomes kind of creepy.

    The music is OK. Especially if you like that THROMMING Techno Stuff that makes your testicles knock together like Clackers.

    Dr. Steel has his part down. I came across Dr. Steel when his minions had an internet campaign going, claiming Dr. Horrible was a rip-off of Dr. Steel. It’s not. But there you have it.

    Anyway, your Brigade of Minions is a joke that has been played out by Dr. Steel already. If you want to continue with it, copy him. He has a very slick army of brown shirts. I’m not kidding.

    The only contact info on your “Contact Us” page is the E-mail address for your booking folks.

    Should we be bombarding them with our minion pix?

    Either way, my minion pic (which you’ll likely remember):

    I want to be a minion.

    I could be the minion in charge of company morale, just not company morals (I have to do that for my kids, not the whole world).

    A few (okay, a dozen) or so podcasts ago, you mentioned that we needed to make sure you had our e-mail address – I missed the call to assist with Paul’s 40th birthday. How should I do that? I’m Being Eaten By A Hoodie minion (somewhere in the 260s, I believe).

    So curious question, do you still sell minion t-shirts to get the special designation?

    I’ve been going through the whole podcast archive since I found you both on the Nerdist podcast (currently on #84, nearly caught up, woo!), and I’m curious if the t-shirt thing still stands. If so when are you coming to TO next, and if not I guess I should finally get around to making a submission to try to get 399 =)

    I’m 42 (43 in May). I followed the same basic path as you guys, and skipped Nintendo while growing up. Didn’t actually have my own Atari, but had several friends who did; then I got a VIC-20, and my friends got Atari 8-bit computers and TI-99/4A’s and Coleco Adams, and it was all computers from then on. Never played Nintendo until I started dating my wife, who is four years younger (and has a brother four years younger still); they were smack dab in the middle of the Nintendo boom.

    However, they made a convert of me, and I have now in my adult life owned one of every Nintendo console: NES, SNES, N64, GameCube, Wii. Plus a GameBoy, a couple DS Lites, a DSi.

    Also had and loved Merlin. “Where’s Merlin, where did it go? / Jenny’s got it playing Tic-Tac-Toe. Now where’s Merlin? When last seen / It was out with Dad playing Blackjack . . .Thirteen!” You can buy them again at toy stores – they’re quite a bit smaller than they used to be. And there are simulators online, including one written and hosted by the original creator of the circuit board.

    I have a friend who swears by “Girl from Ipanema” as the ultimate earworm-slayer. I don’t know the song well enough for it to work for me…
