  1. oh man how come I’m never around for these cool vlogger adventures!? :-P

    Great episode, I felt this overwhelming rush of … something … when I heard the roesmary’s baby theme … I’m not sure why … but I was very excited to see that building was still there and looked just as it did in the movie.

  2. Did you actually reference Zombie Jesus?!

    He’s coming to get you Barbara!..and Rudy…and Casey…

    …give him time…he’s a very slow mover…

    By the by, the Gojiira bit was awesome.

  3. Andrew is SO cute! Don’t worry Rudi, I still think you’re cute, too. This was a great dedication to Amanda. Did the place you were eating at give you free food for talking about them?

  4. David- Thanks man, I found out last night that the Dakota was also where John Lennon was shot… lost of history there!

    Matt- Yes… Zombie Jesus was indeed referenced. ;)

    Andy- Andrew IS cute! Ninja New York didn’t give us a complimentary meal, but we love them anyways… the staff was awesome and at least they let us film!

  7. Bekah- I considered censoring my language, but it just wasn’t as funny without my full reaction!

    Andrew C- You’re about as neutral as Telecom Corporations working with the US Government ;)

  8. As I was sitting here I just realized that this is the perfect videoblog! All videoblogs should be like this. Not like those cheesy videoblogs, but videoblogs that really care. ;-)

    As always I enjoyed watching Casey and Rudy, but this time I also enjoyed the acting talents of Andrew Congdon.

    He’s funy live too! Two shows nightly!

  9. This was a really good show. A light in the darkness of the Rocketboom controversy. Humor gets us through life’s bogs and ruts.

  10. Hi Casey !

    Congratulations for the great job on galacticast.com ! !
    I’m a french sci-fi geek who was longing to find such a site. I’ve discovered yours while reading the pages of the week-end edition of a french newspaper called “Libération”. Keep on doing such an amazing work !

  12. You go Casey with the 5 finger discount! Personally, I enjoy swiping microbeer pint glasses from bars, got a damn good collection over the years.

  13. That was pretty cool. I like how you mixed the sketches with your time in NYC. That restaurant looks really cool. I must agree with Rudy a great staff makes a huge difference. It is fun to watch your humour and creativity in these posts. Keep up the great work!

  15. Ah New York, I love that town.

    I’m so jealous you got to go the the Ninja themed restaurant!

  16. Wow, Rudy and Casey. Thank you. I wasn’t ready to watch this until now… and it really is something special. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!!!!!

    Also Casey, I don’t think you should censor your language. It makes it more real for me this way. It’s not like you are swearing left and right.

    I would also like to echo Stevie G’s comment about “videoblogs that really care”. Your love for this medium makes me love watching you!
