Game Grumps 2019 Summary Part 1

2020.01.01 19:24 NotBlarg Game Grumps 2019 Summary Part 1

This post is designed to look at everything the Game Grumps have done in the past year. Both positive and negative. Everything on this list caused a stir in the Game Grumps community. I have multiple sources and if it was a talking point in two or more of those, then it was added to the list. Anything else I deemed irrelevent/nitpicky and thus ignored. I found last year's post a bit too opinionated, so I've decided to stick to the facts and remove my personal opinion, though some might have slipped through the cracks.

To fit everything on here, a brief summary has been made, but understand that context is important, and to get all the details, check the source material. Essentially, I will give you the information, but it's up to you to interpret it. To help you, links and/or timestamps have been provided for most things on the list, (I decided to add them a couple months in, but I got lazy and didn't want to dig through several months of videos to find links for things I already wrote) and I've double checked all of them to make sure they work.

Due to the amount of things that happened this year, this list had to be split into two parts. You are currently reading part one which covers the first half of the year. Part two covers the rest of the year plus some miscellaneous stats. A link to part two can be found at the bottom the summary, as well as right here.

Other than that, happy reading.

2016.10.20 06:08 CanuckBacon Day 59 - Nashville, TN - 0 Miles

So since I'm in Nashville I took the day off and didn't walk today. I spent most of the day lying around. Me and Conner went out for lunch and after I got back I ended up being so full I just tested for a couple hours. In the evening I went to The Flying Saucer which is a bar in Nashville for a reddit meetup but it was another bad turnout. It was just me and Conner and then a guy named Mike showed up for a little while, he bought me a coke since I wasn't drinking. He only stayed for a short while since he had to get home. No one else showed up so me and Conner just went back to his house and watched the debate. That's basically all that happened today.
I charged up my various devices and did some laundry. I forgot to go shopping for food though. I guess I'll do that in Franklin, TN which is a town a little south of Nashville. I still have a couple days of food left but I need to pick up a couple things to fully restock. I also need to look into getting more fuel for my stove. I use a Jetboil which frankly is amazing. I'd recommend it to anyone thinking of doing any solo trips. I haven't talked to much about gear on my trip so I think I'll start doing that in posts in the future.
Anyway, I didn't really get to experience much if Nashville. I usually try to enter big cities on weekends but I came on a weekday. It definitely seems like a cool city so it's shame I didn't get to see more of it.

2016.02.08 01:24 AliBali4 25F, new to city and looking to make some friends.

Hey ladies, I am a straight 25 year old female that has just moved to Franklin, TN. Unfortunately I don't know anyone here yet and I'm looking to meet some nice girls to get to know, go shopping with, get mani-pedi’s or even just hang out over a glass of wine. A bit about me, I am in a serious relationship, I like to shop, work out, go to movies/watch movies at the house, ect. I love eating healthy but that isn’t to say I don’t like to veg out in front of the TV with pizza and some drinks with the girls during a movie night. Since being in Franklin I have joined a few meetup groups that I intend on going to however I would love to hopefully meet some friends here as well! If you are interested in grabbing a coffee, hanging out to get to know one another send me a PM and we can exchange emails or Facebook information!

2015.06.02 07:36 MisChef airbag recall = 6+hours of ???

I'm one of the lucky folks with the recalled airbags. Waltrip in Franklin is replacing them tomorrow, which means I'll be in town with nothing to do from 11am to 5pm. I live at the TN/AL state line, so driving home & back is a 3-hour round trip. No thanks :-)
The good thing is that I'll have a free rental car for the duration, although once I get my own car back I'll probably hang around for a while to avoid 65south traffic.
Seeing as how it's still supposed to storm on & off tomorrow, what's a girl to do to keep busy besides eat lunch & drink coffee? I'm up for anywhere in Nashville or surrounding. Sadly, my husband can't take the day off spontaneously, so I'm stuck doing whatever I do alone. As a semi-local, I'm not interested in any of the touristy spots. What are your favorite shops/boutiques? Anywhere nice to hang out and kill some time, ideally, where there aren't a lot of kids? Anyone interested in a spontanous lunch meetup?

Eighth Annual Parade of Trabants Saturday Where were you when the Wall fell? The Berlin Wall is long gone, but one Cold War icon is still chugging away—the Trabant. Despite their questionable performance and smoky two-stroke engines, these little cars are now affectionately regarded as a symbol of East Germany and the fall of Communism. Trabants are a rarity here, but on November 8 some of the finest examples in the US will chug their way to the International Spy Museum to celebrate our Eighth Annual Parade of Trabants. Drop in to view the vintage cars, which will be parked in front of the Museum on F Street, NW, and enter a raffle to win a ride in a Trabant. While the cars are on display, experts will be on hand to answer questions about Trabants, the Cold War, and Communism, while the Alte Kameraden German Band provides festive music. Try your hand at graffiti Berlin-style and try to get past our own Checkpoint Charlie. Event website is here.
Nerd Nite: Playing with Perception Saturday Sometime what you see and what you get don’t quite match up. Like, Aunt Edna – she seems so sweet, but get a few glasses of wine in her and the Thanksgiving table becomes a scene from a John Waters’ film. Equally entertaining, for November, we’ve got a bunch of talks that will play with your perception. Everything from synesthesia to how digital tools are making teaching history more fun, to just how weird your tongue is (and why you might think cilantro tastes like soap). Takes place at DC9 Nightclub: tickets are $10, doors open at 6pm.
Anberlin - The Final Tour Friday, 11/7 Anberlin's final U.S. tour will roll into the Fillmore in Silver Spring this Friday at 8pm.

2014.07.20 23:20 Vressic Starcraft 2 gaming group in Nashville.

New to town and I've checked here, Facebook, Google, meetup and on and on for a Starcraft 2 group with no luck.
So, here's my thought if we where to meetup we could do a LAN party, viewing parties for the eSports tourneys, and even arrange travel events for the SC2 events that are near Nashville (Like Redbull battlegrounds last weekend in Atlanta)
So what do you think?
Edit: Looks like we have a good bit of interest! Lets make this official.
Wednesday evening @7:00 pm over at B&C BBQ - 2617 Franklin Pike, Nashville, TN 37204
Grab a plate of BBQ and then look for the Terran Marine to know you have the right table =D
Please PM me these two things...
  1. Your order of interest on the following (LAN parties -- Remote eSports viewing events -- Traveling to an eSports event!)
  2. Let me know if you plan on attending Wednesday!
UPDATE Had a great time with everyone last night. We are going to do it again next week.
