Paul & Chris were joined by writer and artist with a last name that people always pronounce wrong,
Joe Veix. He discusses his career, joke writing and of course Matthew McConaughey.
Trade secret from the gas station - OPEC doesn’t set gas prices. In college,
Chris’ sister worked at a gas station and was obviously in charge of the price at the pump. Writing about
K-Pop? Youtube examples.
System Shock 2, a horror video game.
Brandacted, a Chrome extension by our guest that blocks brand names. Similar to
Brandacted, Joe also made Name Swap that gives political candidates a gross name. Joe was inspired by the
Redskins Web Skin extension. Joe says he started out writing “really bad

Adbusters’ spoofs. The gents discuss the over commercialization of

Robert Zemeckis films include: , Forrest Gump , Death Becomes Her and Who Framed Roger Rabbit . Romancing the Stone Joe wonders if

Matthew McConaughey is in both Contact and . Interstellar Joe thinks there are actors who do very similar characters in every movie and yet you still love to watch them. Like
Steve Zahn or Peter Lorre. Chris says there are others that do that and he can’t stand them, like

Transformers show with only trucks that can’t transform. A new kids show we pitch. Oh look, there’s a game already. Paul educates us on a dirty secret,
fake engine noises playing in your car speakers. Writing apps for the Mac,
Byword or Pages. Joe prefers to change the
contrast settings and make Pages dark and less distracting.
Markdown is the way Chris likes to write now.
