Thank you, pagerunner, for this fantastic message in my inbox last night. And there’s our answer, Croach is definitely at least bilingual if not more. :)
wait are you on -username basis- with the cast members because that is amazing
Well I mean like, I’m probably recognizable to like Hal and Gags and the Bens. Maybe Marc, Annie and Craig, possibly? I got to talk to them quite a bit at ECCC in March and then went to Largo in April (which I just realized I never posted a wrapup of. Oops. Should I do it 5+ months late?)
But honestly I’m sure there’s like several hundred other fans who are regulars at Largo, the New York shows and cons and such that are just as and more recognizable to them. I’m probably most well known just for doing the wiki (along with ahab99 and chedsy and several others who have helped out) and asking a lot of questions, haha. It’s neat but I’m not that special. :D
I wish I’d thought to ask you if you were wondering anything else, since I got a good chance to talk to them in the signing line! I did ask at the panel when we would “see” the Troubleshooter again, because I love her, and Blacker said the August 2nd Largo show would feature her! So YAY! (but sigh, because then we still have to wait for podcast).
“As a connoisseur, you’ll find I have very specific tastes. I seek a wine with structure and stability and backbone. Something brooding but which won’t tell me what’s on it’s mind. A wine that’s superior, haughty, withholding. I want a wine so fickle and baffling I’ll wake up at 3 in the morning with my fingers already fumbling on the dial of my phone to ask it what I’ve done wrong. I want a wine that disapproves of me and every choice I’ve ever made. Bring me a wine that insults me to my face and makes me like it.”—Frank Doyle, “A Beyond Belief Valentines Day,” Thrilling Adventure Hour (via fyeahthrillingadventurehour)
“Brazilians were supporting Germany’s NT. Why? 6 months ago the Germans arrived in Santa Cruz Cabrália (Bahia, Brazil) and built a hotel, a health center, a football field, donated an ambulance to the town, created a full-time school program in Cabralia, made a road that led to their training center, didn’t bring German employees hiring about 250 Cabrália citizens in their training center. Then the Germany NT arrived and: When not training, they socialized with the citizens in the town or in the beach, partied with the citizens, were kind to the fans always talking to them/taking pictures with them. About the win against our team: they were respectful with us, said that their idols were Brazilian legends and that we shouldn’t lose our pride. They are thankful for the way they were welcome here. And they’ll donate the things they built to the population. It’s impossible not to support these guys.”—I translated this because people think it’s just because they beat Argentina. It’s not.
