Alpha Counter Podcast 30: REBOOT(S)!



Episode 30: “Gather ‘Round, Children”

Chuck’s adventure at this years Video Game Live Concert felt like a comedy of errors. Even meeting one of his video game idols came bitter-sweet.

But that comes with the territory of live entertainment. Maybe it is safer to seek escapism in isolated, consumable media. For examples, Gravity Rush, Batman Beyond Tron: Uprising, Prometheus, and Amazing Spider-man…all of which we discuss in this podcast.

    I suspect this podcast was recorded before I left my last comment on the topic, but you definitely are pronouncing Charlise’s name incorrectly.

    Her first name is pronounced shar-leez, not share-eez, and the accent is on the first syllable of her last name, not the second. It’s like heron, but with a Th.

      Well, on her first name, I know there’s an “l”, but my tongue doesn’t always get the sound out when I say it. And for her last name, yeah this was recorded a couple weeks ago. Plus, even when I pronounce it like rhymes-with-heron, other people will correct me. I can’t win!

        There are two correct ways to pronounce theron. The way she tells people to pronounce it, and like throne. Next time someone tells you it’s ‘their-own’ tell them they’re dumbasses.
        Also, it’s not just missing the l, it’s putting out a long A sound what a short A is required.

      While yes, episodes are recorded in advance… I am sure we will bring up Charlize Theron again at some point, she’s just too hot not to!

      I swear I think Charlize Theron is this generations Michelle Pfeiffer, am surprised they haven’t been a Mom and Daughter team yet.

    Disney XD has some decent cartoons coming out, or at least they look really nice. My tumblr and I are all about MotorCity.
