This is what happens when you don’t check your PO Box for like a month, you have to take lots of photos! 

The red Sriracha SUPER HIPSTER socks and the Cap socks are from @arsenicjade; the best tea towel in the world and the owl socks and Prince Charles tossing dough are from @geekerypeekery :D  Also, that mooncake mold is one of four molds, each of which have awesome multiple plates, thank you @banesidhe!  Finally, the cool spinner birthday card, tiny pocketwatch notebook, and assemble-a-carousel kit (I promise to post finished pictures!) are from @la-rainette.

Second photo, the lovely Fishing Birthday pun card is from Mary and not May :D Whom Owl is from Seattle, and I will match your Go Mariners even though eventually they will be my sworn enemy. :D The card of “knockers, jars, and hooters” with the owl on the jars is from Kris and Josh and gave me quite a laugh, and the Baboon is from @scifigrl47. He’s not judging ME, Sci, he’s judging you for NOT KNOWING he is a baboon :D 

Thanks you guys! I’m sorry this particular Post Office Bounty post is so much less comprehensive than I usually am. In my defense, October has been rough.

Trucks Appreciation Post

“I got shouted out last night in a really remarkably thorough way by the guy who wrote Detective Pony… he definitely did not mention Trucks.” - @some-triangles

“I can’t believe that Trucks wouldn’t be listed among the major works.” - @spacedhamlet

“I can’t believe it, Detective Pony! For fuck’s sake. Trucks is practically our magnum opus. So what do you have to say about that, mister man?” - @some-triangles​, as heard in Mumblesquad Shadow of the Colossus #6

The top 33 Trucks episodes of 2016, definitively ranked in a remarkably thorough way from least Trucks to most Trucks:

33: Talk Simulator 2 - Episode 32 - Actually Zero Difference (”Just you and me and our beautiful voices and our crisp, clear ideas.” - Josh)

32: Talk Simulator 2 - Episode 28 - Sleepy pooped (”But what if the experience you’re missing is the crippling guilt of doing something truly horrible?” - Josh “Oh, I feel that in life, even when I don’t do something truly horrible” - Isaac)

31: Talk Simulator 2 - Episode 13 - Yeah, Star Wars (”For folks who are simply unaware that they’re bad, that is less interesting to me. It’s the people who are aware that they’re bad and are suffering under some obligation to continue.” - Isaac)

29: Talk Simulator 2 - Episode 30 - Monica doesn’t wanna talk about art (”Josh is slightly drunk, I’m maudlin and self-pitying.

28: Talk Simulator 2 - Episode 31 - The preferred background noise (”You can rest easily in my bosom, secure in the knowledge you will not have to think too hard or be tormented too much by the sheer lassitude of everyday nothingness while I am speaking.” - Isaac “Dang.” - Josh)

27: Talk Simulator 2 - Episode 36 - Mindless Self Indulgence (”I remember pulling a lot of Weird Al tracks of of Napster. Most of which weren’t actually Weird Al.” - Josh)

26: Talk Simulator 2 - Episode 35 - The Trucks Gazes Back (”If a place called Truckee is gonna be the land where our spirit resides, and it’s gonna be because of our trucks affinity, you’d think that this game would be—” “—the correct medium through which to observe that.” - Josh and Isaac)

25: Talk Simulator 2 - Episode 15 - Into the Blowhole (”It looks so much like what it is.” - Isaac)

24: Talk Simulator 2 - Episode 41 - Missed Erection (”[Overwatch is] interested in the choreography of violence without the consequences of violence“ - Josh “Which means that this game would be much better if it were professional wrestling.” - Isaac)

23: Talk Simulator 2 - Episode 42 - Make Something Great (”It’s now or never. And I’ll sideswipe all the cars I need to on my way to this goal.“ - Josh)

22: Talk Simulator 2- Episode 44 - Britain’s goofy mascot (”I was Sailor Gendo.” - Isaac)

21: Talk Simulator 2 - Episode 33 - Don’t Hate, Participate (”Oh, Jesus Christ, what’s wrong with you?” - Isaac)

19: Talk Simulator 2 - Episode 24 - The Long Europe of the Night (”Here we are in… where are we?” - Isaac “Poland. And we’re going to Kris- Kristin- Krislinland- Kristen- Krisliland- Kris- that place.” - Josh “We’re going to Chris Kattan.” - Isaac)

18: Talk Simulator 2 - Episode 17 - Unprotected Left Heel Turn (”Oh my god, I can just sleep anywhere in this field.” - Josh)

17: Talk Simulator 2 - Episode 25 - I just hate it!!! (”Why don’t we just shout ‘Trucks!’ whenever the thing starts?” - Josh)

16: Talk Simulator 2 - Episode 20 - finally (”childish amusements that I childishly amuse myself with” - Isaac)

15: Talk Simulator 2 - Episode 27 - Vice-Admiral Thaddeus Wrinkledorf III (”Professional Trucks.” - Isaac)

14: Talk Simulator 2 - Episode 40 - I Saw the Suplex (”Most of [modern wrestling] is Vince McMahon whispering in people’s ears. And he is insane.“ - Isaac)

13: Talk Simulator 2 - Episode 22 - Lightly Drifted (”Yes, you can tell a story without words, ya dummy!” - Josh)

12: Talk Simulator 2 - Episode 23 - Mixed Nuts (”You are better at coming up with fly-ass phrases on— the fly. See? See, I already fucked up, I fucked up right there.” - Josh)

11: Talk Simulator 2 - Episode 16 - Don’t click the annotation (”I’m glad when you [Isaac] like a person.” - Josh)

10: Talk Simulator 2 - Episode 19 - Pinned Down by Mediocrity (”I’m very sad that they are continuing to bury Bray Wyatt.“ - Isaac)

9: Talk Simulator 2 - Episode 29 - Overwhelming Herzog (”I know that it involves [Orson Welles] blustering around with a cape and saying, ‘Ah! And for my next trick…’“ - Josh)

7: Talk Simulator 2 - Episode 34 - I love Computers (”The best art is that which is great by accident, and that’s the only thing computers can make.” - Josh)

6: Talk Simulator 2 - Episode 12 - 2016 New Year Trucktacular “It’s the renewal of everything. It’s another chance. One in a diminishing series of chances that we have left for all of us, but still, another way to navigate to another place.” - Isaac)

5: Talk Simulator 2 - Episode 39 - I just can’t get over it (”All of my opinions are uncontroversial and highly correct… I think that the best video games aren’t fun; I love walking simulators. I think that art is a pretty low bar to aspire to.” - Josh)

4: Talk Simulator 2 - Episode 26 - The Mythical Archive Reader (”I suppose that’s the difference [between the Alternian and Beforan trolls]: there was a movement from an affectionate parody of a world that [Andrew Hussie] had belonged to to a vicious parody of a world that he was confused by and forced to be a part of because that’s where his audience lived.” - Isaac)

3: Talk Simulator 2 - Episode 37 - In praise of the bad man (”As a young pervert myself, I was like, ‘Hey! I feel recognized and welcomed by this terrible human being. Let’s figure out what this is about.’” - Isaac)

2: Talk Simulator 2 - Episode 43 - Bee in the Bonnet (featuring @naked-bee​, creator of the Detective Pony podfic) (”I’m stuck now… Maybe if I do exactly the same thing again…” - Josh)

1: Talk Simulator 2 - Episode 18 - Jackpot!!! (”Guys, I’m really tired today.” - Josh “Oh, Josh is a sleepy boy, but we have obligations. Miles to go before we sleep, in this case both literally and figuratively— actually, no, just two different kinds of figuratively: we’re literally in the room that Josh sleeps. But! Figuratively both in terms of driving in this game and driving in our lives, we have to do a lot of stuff before it’s time to not.” - Isaac)


Your move, Truckmen.
