Professor Brad – Dragon’s Lair

Since Heavy and Ty are still absent without leave, Gustave recruited Professor Brad to talk about movies, productivity, Dragon’s Lair and much more.   This week will be appearance one for Professor Brad in a special two week engagement.

Starting of Brad and Gus discuss all of Brad’s major awards as he is the only doctor on the Blowout Podcast Network, where he co-hosts the Below the Belt Podcast with his friend and smiley man Ryan.  Gustav then turns the discussion towards science fiction books and movies set or made before computers became what they are today.  That leads to a discussion about 2001: A Space Odyssey and the works of Stanley Kubrick, including A Clockwork Orange, The Shining and Eyes Wide Shut.  (In a glaring omission, Gustav fails to mention Kubrick’s Vietnam masterpiece, Full Metal Jacket, but he will discuss it in an upcoming episode that has since been recorded).

You can’t talk to Brad too long about anything without video games coming up.  So the discussion going from “arcades” of a certain type over to the classic Leisure Suit Larry mature themed video game series just seems natural.  That in turn bridges from the game mechanics of Sierra style games of the eighties to Gustav’s memories about failing at the classic eighties arcade game Dragon’s Lair.  Then Brad and Gustav discuss how they are both suffering from a perceived lack of productivity in their objectives.
