Saturday 8pm! (ENT1690540) – Westin Grand Ballroom V – $4
https://www.gencon.com/events/90540

Fiasco is a tabletop role playing game where terrible things happen. Gosh Darn Fiasco is a podcast where Angela Webber (THE DOUBLECLICKS) and funny people play Fiasco. The Gosh Darn Fiasco Show is a show where Angela and her very funny friends play a very special game-show-style version of Fiasco for your entertainment, with audience interaction, special guests, dice, deaths, goofs, gags, and so on.
Writer and designer, Will Hindmarch, whipped up such Fiasco playsets as “The Zoo” and “All The Damn Time,” in addition to co-writing “Saturday Night ’78,” which they played on Geek and Sundry’s show, TableTop. Will co-founded Gameplaywright Press with Jeff Tidball and co-created the online storytelling game, Storium. He is one half of the Design Games podcast with Nathan Paoletta. Look him up on Patreon, but do not talk to him about airships or we will be here all night.
Steve Segedy is a game publisher, a web developer, and a dad to two great boys. He is the man behind the curtain at Bully Pulpit Games, handling the day-to-day operations as well as production, editing, and occasionally a bit of writing for an award-winning line of games. He is also the lead organizer for Games on Demand, an all-volunteer organization that puts on gaming events at Gen Con, Origins, PAX, and other regional conventions. Steve has been hooked on gaming since the first time he set his eyes on the Monster Manual in 1981, and he still longs for the day when he can play in a successful, ongoing sci-fi game.

Doubleclicks 2016 Tour Announcement

Summer Tour With missouri

Portland folk-pop duo the Doubleclicks have announced a 26-city tour across the U.S. (and one city in Canada.) The band’s 2015 album, “President Snakes,” discusses topics from breakfast and cats to childhood bullying and social anxiety, and spent 2 weeks on the Billboard comedy charts thanks to support of fans around the world and a popular Kickstarter campaign. President Snakes is a fictional Presidential Candidate, invented by the duo, who is 5 snakes wearing a suit pretending to be a person. Is this political commentary? No one is quite sure.

The tour will include mostly all-ages concerts, as the Doubleclicks are hoping that kids, teens, families, and nerds of all ages will enjoy their show, which will feature music from President Snakes, hits from previous albums, and new material. Some tour dates will feature special guests, including ukulele songwriter and HBO documentary soundtrack composer Danielle Ate The Sandwich, producer/rapper/geekette Sammus, and singer/songwriters Marc with a C and Juliana Finch.

Full tour list is below! All concerts kid-friendly unless noted.

Tickets available for some shows, others are just “suggested donation at the door.” It helps a lot if you RSVP on Facebook & invite your friends!

New Song: C-3PO’s Lament

A couple months ago, I was at dinner with friends and we were discussing Star Wars (duh). The conversation turned to C-3PO and how everyone hates C-3PO and how he’s terrible in every way. So annoying! So unkind! So oblivious! And I thought to myself: “Oh gosh, this is how people talk about me when I’m not around I bet.”  On the way home, I wrote this song about FEELINGS.

Patreon backers can download this song right here!

This weekend we’ll be in Ohio & Indianapolis!

Gosh Darn Fiasco Podcast FIRST EPISODE!

gdf_podcast_title_01_simplecast

The first episode of our NEW PODCAST is up and it’s soooo goood!

The podcast is GOSH DARN FIASCO. My friends and I improvise a movie-length story using prompts from the game Fiasco. It’s super easy to get into for gamers and non-gamers alike.

“In this episode, our players head to CAMP DEATH, a playset written by James Gabrielsen all about a haunted camp with a mysterious past and lots of problems. The counselors come early to set up and are greeted by a bus driver who loves PBJs, a messed up squirrel corpse, and a forest that takes impressionable youths and turns them into experienced hunters. What does it all mean? That’s a wonderful question. Please call in if you know this answer.”

You can listen on Simplecast or subscribe on iTunes, Overcast, Pocketcasts, whatever by just searching “Gosh Darn.”

<3 Thank you for listening!

It’s wonderful wonderful wonderful and we are so thankful that you’ve joined us for the ride!

To celebrate our 5 year anniversary, we have put together 5 COOL THINGS for all of us to do together. Two of them are in Portland but the rest can be enjoyed by all people everywhere (through the Internet). So let’s begin!! Continue reading 5 new things for 5 years of the Doubleclicks

2015 in The Doubleclicks

live wire 2015

Hello everyone and welcome to the 2015 year-in-wrap-up post! This may not be interesting to anyone other than me, but I write these every year as an exercise in tracking-the-time-passing, in reflecting on what we’ve done, and as a way for me to have something to look back on to remember how I’ve been thinking. You can read all the previous years (2011201220132014) if you’d like. *I* think it’s interesting.

One of the coolest things about this year was all the neat people we got to work with. You can read all about them here!

I’m gonna give the highlights of each month of 2015, because it was a big year. BIG YEAR, I SAY. And also emotional year. EMOTIONS, I say. Let’s look at things! THERE ARE EMOTIONS IN HERE GET READY.  Continue reading 2015 in The Doubleclicks
