The Jewish Legend of the Superstar Christian Spy!
« on: January 26, 2018, 08:34:15 PM »
Since I'm working on posting everything in haikus this week (EXCEPT FOR THIS POST WHICH I DECLARE EXEMPT FOR REASONS OF BEING EXEMPT!), I thought I'd pass along a lecture-chat I gave a few weeks ago on this four hundred percent insane and delightful legend from the rabbinic tradition. A legend with very curious and unexpected connections to what seems like lost history!


My host inadvertently gives away the huge plot twist spoiler in the first few seconds, introducing the show, but this link should safely skip past it.




Or, if you'd prefer not to hear about what we're drinking tonight and the perils of real ginger ale, you can skip to the 2:00 mark.




(Those timing links should work, but Youtube trying to be helpful skips me past them when trying to test.)

Skipping forward to 12:40 is viable, too....  :nerd: >:D ::)

ICEBREAKER THESIS CHRONOLOGY! -- Victor Suvorov's Stalin Grand Strategy theory, in chronological order. Lots and lots of order...

Dawn of Armageddon -- a narrative AAR for Dawn of War: Soulstorm: Ultimate Apocalypse: The Hunt Begins: Insert Joke Here!

Survive Harder! In the grim darkness of the bowl there is only, um, Amazons. And tentacles and midgets. Not remotely what you're thinking! ...okay, maybe a little remotely.

PanzOrc Corpz Generals -- Season One complete; Fantasy Wars AAR, lots of screenies.

Jim Norton is all kinds of awesome. The characters he does are quite amazing.
