AskPAUL live!

Postby Paul » 10 Jun 2012, 08:13

Paul sits in a chair and answers your questions for far too long. Recorded live June 9, 2012. Apologies to people just listening to the audio version, the silence you hear at the beginning is me with a thing on my head :)

Note: looks like I forgot to turn on the decombing filter in the recording program, but luckily I don't move around that much.

Ah nice to spend some good quality time with Paul. One on one... kinda. Or at least it feels like it listening to this by myself.

1. Go watch Morecambe and Wise right now. Start with the Grieg Piano Concerto sketch.
2. Repeat 1 with different sketches.
3. Begin all over again from 1.

Other than that I enjoyed it :D

I really liked what I managed to see. I also asked too many questions. :P Thanks for doing that Paul.

Maybe I'll take my planechast stuff to the Escapist Expo now so anyone who wants to play some can. I'd love to play a game with Paul and anyone from here who's going.

2 hours and 25 minutes of Paul‽ Is it Christmas already? :D

Thank you very much for answering my questions, Paul. I really appreciated your response to my writing question especially. I've jotted down your suggested conversation topics. I hope I get the chance to use them. :)

I probably should have elaborated more about my third question. I wasn't asking as much what cH would be like as a show if everyone was super-competent but what the individual characters would be like if you reversed the polarity of effectiveness. For example, super-Paul might have a working ball-kick super laser installed on the moon, which is of course now run by linux. So if they still made the same sort of flawed decisions, but the scope was increased. It was still pretty interesting to hear your thoughts on the inverse relation between competence and comedy. The Studio 60 / 30 Rock comparison was pretty apt.

Anyway, this was fantastic. Thank you again! :D

Thanks for answering my questions paul and I appreciate your attempt at pronouncing my name right.

Bummer to learn that WotC is primarily in charge of Friday Nights production. Hopefully if they 'don't' sponsor future episodes, I'd hope that we can expect at least an alternative to fill the void for MtG related videos.

I highly suspect that we could get another CH with MtG if Friday Nights Season 2 falls through, as I suspect that the CH characters still play MtG like their real-world counterparts.

Tea and cake or death? I had to agree then go get one. It made me run late but totally worth it

"unless they're already married"

NEWS FLASH -- Paul opposes polyamory! ;)



Regarding the "Hey Paul!", it reminded me of Paul's appearance in the "Cursing" video. After he shouted "I like your movies" you should've yelled back "That's not very imaginative, you know!"


My nominations for the LRRies:
Cheesiest performance: Paul as Jacques Francois
Best Marlon Brando: I'm going to guess Andy
Biggest prima donna: cH_Matt

He opposes polygamy, that's different :P But I had the same thought when he added that. I thought "awww".
Still, there are more legal complications linked with having several spouses, while being married to a man or to a woman are basically the same thing nowadays, since both genders are considered fully independent adults. So there is definitely no defense to making same-sex illegal, there isn't much that would need to be changed except for texts.
Allowing multiple marriages (at the same time, not in a row) would presumably require more legal changes and adaptation, and would be much more of a hassle. Not to mention much more people seem to oppose it.

For the record: I have nothing against polygamy or polyamory in principal, but as Avistew says, there are some legal ramifications that make it more complicated then same-sex marriage.

I agree, I just thought it was funny to purposely misconstrue what you were saying. :)

Oh! also, morcambe and wise used to have a radio show, I can't attest to the quality,I haven't listened to it yet, but this should work, the BBC leave it up for a week, starting 4 or 5 days ago http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b01jl8hs/The_Eric_Morecambe_and_Ernie_Wise_Show_The_Eric_Morecambe_and_Ernie_Wise_Show_1975_1975/

Edit: ok, I've got 5 minutes in and its brilliant, though there's many name references, I guess not many people'd get those any more, certainly not me

With regards to Pauls comments regarding the melted cheese (around 1:41 on the vidcast), the only one that comes to me is Raclette, but that's normally served with potatoes rather than bread. It's also French/Swiss rather than German I think.

It's my first post, but then again my approach to forums is pretty similar to Paul's approach to Facebook/Twitter - if you've got nothing to say, why say anything..

I can think of a variety of meals that involve melted cheese, most of them Swiss. I can imagine Germany, being on the border, would have some (just like France does on the other side).

I was in a pub/bar owned by my host family, or rather my host mothers brother and they did that. They had a large wheel of cheese from the local dairy and several loaves of bread. It was just kinda their saturday afternoon/evening food while they sat around chatting and drinking the best mead ever ohhh man. I can still taste the honey...
