LeakyCast Presents: 'Sharknado 2: The Other One'
Sad that you are going to miss the premiere of future cinematic classic Sharknado 2: The Other One because you are at LeakyCon? LeakyCast has your back. Dynamic duo Ian Ziering and Tara Reid are reprising their roles from last summer’s SyFy hit and pop culture phenomenon Sharknado. There are cameos from basically everyone on the planet. There is no known plot other than “sharks in a tornado.” There is no way it will be good. There is no way it will not be amazing. Join LeakyCast for a screening of the film**, complete with potentially witty and definitely snarky commentary. Until they bring Mystery Science Theater 3000 back, this is the best you are going to get.  **In case of emergency, Sharknado Classic will be riffed in place of The Other One.

Let's Play: The Return of Pale and Twitchy
Last year their attempt to beat GLADoS was as fruitless and futile as it was accidentally entertaining. (And it actually resulted in their YouTube channel, Pale and Twitchy.) This year Anthony Rapp is in New York, starring on Broadway in "If/Then," but he'll be joining us via the magic of the Internet for a gaming battle that has more funny ways to die than awesome ways to win. Come laugh right along with us!
