The Black Prism: Part Three

How much you wanna make a bet Luke could throw a football over them mountains? (4:05 to skip the Napoleon Dynamite fan segment) Dan is still not convinced about the goodness or badness of these brothers and Luke needs to be on the committee designing this wall. We also desperately need an answer as to why Dan's solution has not gained more popularity in this world. Seems pretty obvious y'all.

Special thanks to VOLO for the intro and outro music.

The Black Prism: Part Two

Orholam sent a message via recording issues that a warm up will not be welcome in this episode so we jump straight into the book. A certain clothing based prank gives us some more fuel for our good brother/bad brother debate and honestly it's not looking good. We love to see the inclusion of some TLC in this section, no not the singers, I'm talking the chromatography. Also let us know your thoughts on King Garadul, are you defecting with us?

The Black Prism: Part One

Luke starts us off with some serious introvert energy (7:00 to skip this karaoke rant). Luke and Dan already have a few suggestions for how to improve this prison. It may involve Eiffel 65. Dan learns about a new fitness contraption and Luke gives a glowing endorsement of King Garadul. Just kidding, this guy is terrible. Also who is signing up for extra credit at the Chromeria!?
