Ladies and gents, it is once again time to roll out the red carpet for The Thread Awards! Awarding the best in cinema, television, video games, and music.
Due to the timing of this recording, several notable celebrity deaths occurring within the last week were not discussed during this podcast. On the bright side, none of them were part of our 2015 deathpool predictions. Happy RIPcast 2014!
The Thread gives you the gift of podcast! Happy Holidays to all our listeners!
The Thread discusses Fall/Winter 2014 TV shows. This podcast was recorded in front of a live virtual audience.
Fat jokes, drinking, video games, and obscure movie references. The Thread is back! Season 6 is go!
For our Season 5 finale, The Thread gets drunk. In this episode we discuss the craft beer industry while enjoying a few beers from Anderson Valley, Independent Fermentations, and The Plymouth Brewtherhood. As an added bonus, we’ve included some of our “warm-up sessions” from the past season at the very end of the episode. Topics include: Sochi Olympics, You Know How I Know You’re Fat, “24”, and Fatt Damon.
Time travel, fat celebrities, bad dates and carrots. You submitted the questions. We gave our answers. Thanks to everyone that contributed to our annual Q&A podcast!
Another PAX East is in the bag. The weekend began with another great bar crawl and ended with the return of Eric’s PAX curse. Also, congratulations to all our bar crawl prize winners, especially Jason who won our grand prize “Portal Pack” which included a Portal 2 replica gun.
Grab a bucket of popcorn and hide a bottle of water in your shorts. It’s time to gear up for our summer movie preview.
Do you like fun, games and drinking? The Thread Podcast is once again hosting a bar crawl for PAX East’ers. This year’s Crawl will held on Thursday, April 10th. We’re bringing the party closer to the convention center and hitting Boston’s Seaport area.
Last year we gave away video game downloads, collectibles, and one lucky attendee walked away with a BioShock Infinite Skyhook Replica before the game was even released.
The only way to find out what we’re giving away this year is to attend.
The guys from The Thread will be collecting donations that night for Childs Play charity! Be sure to bring your generosity along with your Crawling shoes!

Locations subject to change prior to event.
For a guy who is single, why doesn’t Eric finish more video games? When will Mike play “Fallout 4”? Will Mark get “Command & Conquer” rebooted? These video game topics and more are covered in our annual “State of the Video Games” address.
The Thread crew tackles Eric’s favorite topic: SPORTS! We discuss Olympic highlights, gays in the NFL, and the beginning of another baseball season.
People of the World, put on your Sunday’s best! It’s time once again for The Thready Awards. The Thread bestows its greatest honor upon the best and worst of 2013 in video games, television, movies and MORE!
As another year comes to a close, The Thread takes a moment to reflect on celebrity deaths of 2013. Also, the results of our 2012 RIPCast celebrity death predictions.
One half of The Thread would like to wish you a “Happy Holiday”, while the other half wants this holy hell of a season to be over already. This week The Thread tackles all the festive topics: from gifts to drinking, from family get-togethers to drinking again, and from holiday characters to more drinking.
Friend of the podcast (/podcasters) and USMC Veteran Shawn Connors recently sat down with The Thread to discuss his experience joining the Marines, being deployed to Iraq, acronyms, and thoughts on current military themed topics.
HULK DEMAND PUNY HUMANS LISTEN TO THREAD COMIC BOOK PODCAST! TRIVIA! COMEDY! MOVIES! HULK SMASH!
Some topics aren’t worthy of their own podcast and that’s where the “Topic Buffet” comes in. From video game violence to robot sex, The Thread crew sets the timer to ten and tackles these tiny topics.
ERIC: How’s everyone? It’s half a ghost town at work today. Eerie walking past the T-station on the way into my building and not seeing anyone there. Got a parking spot on the first floor of the parking garage, which never happens. One of my co-workers actually lives in Watertown. He’s WFH, under the covers in the basement.
MARK: I’m fine.
SCOTT: I’m good as long as the SOB gives up, gets killed, or arrested sometime soon and the Red Sox game doesn’t get postponed.
MARK: Really Scott? I mean really???? How can two geniuses such as ourselves be thinking the same thing. Mind goggling!
ML: People can Google minds now?
SCOTT: ML, you can.
ERIC: I’m just hoping Boston Comic Con will still go on tomorrow!
MARK: What the hell Suff?!
SCOTT: I agree Mark. Eric, don’t be so selfish.
ERIC: Scott, I’m thinking of you as well. You have time to make that AND go eat rice noodles.
SCOTT: Rice noodles? Because my wife is Asian?! Racist!
ERIC: I know. I’m a terrible person. Either that or I remembered that having to go eat pho was your lame excuse on Monday for not being able to go to Comic Con.
SCOTT: Eric, there was no such excuse. I was meeting up for dinner in the evening which does not overlap with Comic Con.
MARK: Really Eric? You are worried about Comic Con being cancelled compared to a mad man being apprehended. Why don’t you add to it and promote yourself by making a public statement that you will be at Comic Con. Moron…
ERIC: Maybe I will! Maybe I just will! Go Red Sox, Mark!
MARK: The Red Sox will show more comfort to the people as a whole than people dressed up in costumes and scaring more people in the area where mayhem was seen.
ERIC: I will be more comforted by someone dressed up as Wonder Woman.
SCOTT: Why do you want to see a man dressed as Wonder Woman? That’s rather gayish.
MARK: And I am sure he will treat you very nicely for a price.
ERIC: You and Scott shouldn’t project your own personal fantasies on to me.
MARK: Coming from the one that has a lightsaber armory.
ERIC: You’re the guys who want to see a man in a WW costume.
SCOTT: Eric, you brought up Wonder Woman, not us. You are projecting and backtracking. I wouldn’t choose Wonder Woman. She’s a beast of an Amazon. She might even have a penis. Plus, I’ve never seen her wash her hands on the invisible jet.
ERIC: Don’t be afraid of tall girls just because you are a tiny man. I brought up a WW costume. *You* assumed it would be a dude in the costume. Your mind took it there, because that’s what you secretly want to see.
SCOTT: Mark and I took it there because you love the cock.
MARK: Are you saying you are afraid of girls. Perhaps you are more comfortable around guys? IT’s ok. There is nothing wrong with that. I would rather Princess Lea in the captured bikini and chained. Now, that is a woman!
ERIC: She might be there too….
MARK: I doubt it. That scene was 1983. I believe Carrie Fisher is old and in rehab at this point.
SCOTT: I’d hope to see Power Girl. You need to have special powers to support a rack like that.
MARK: Eric, you and Shawn should dress up like The Tick and his sidekick the moth, Arthur.
SCOTT: LOL. That would be EPIC! SPOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOON!
The 2013 MLB Season has just begun and it has already been interesting. Random injuries and brawls have taken out great players. A shitty 2012 Red Sox team has changed into a team with promise. But the big questions still remain: Who will make the playoffs? Is the Play-in game a good thing? Does Eric still know nothing about sports? And a listener poll asking “What is your favorite baseball movie?”
In this half of the Wrestlemania-sized Wrestlemania 29 preview, Mike, Shawn, Seth and Nick discuss the WWE Hall of Fame inductees for 2013, wrestler’s who have passed away this past year, and the seemingly upward-trending state of the WWE roster. The guys also make some booking decisions, pushing some guys up and others out.
Just wrapped up the recording of the 2013 Wrestlemania-sized Wrestlemania Preview podcast. Shawn, Seth, Nick, and myself talked for two+ hours, bringing plenty of hot takes on 2013 Hall of Fame inductees, this year’s Wrestlemania card, and what’s good and not so good for ‘the business’. Looking forward to releasing Part 1 on Tuesday!
From “Saints Row IV” to “The Last of Us”. From 3 hour lines to 4 hour pub crawls. From Mass Effect panels to dead Smurfs in a sink. Another PAX East has come and gone. This year we teamed up with the lovely Mos Eisley Girls to give you our first crossover podcast. Prepare for awesomeness.
Also, congratulations to everyone who won Steam downloads and our big prize winners, Chris and Jerry.
