It’s the time of the week again where Master Stoo is playing video games for an entire day but also the time of the YEAR where he’s doing it for charity! Yes, visit his Extra-Life page* to find out how you can support his charity work for the Children’s Miracle Network. In honour of that, Stoo also gives you the full skinny on an unnumbered Podcast On Fire focusing on games played recently, Asian movies that could be made into games and joining him is Ken and VCinema’s Coffin Jon for a relaxed un-movie like discussion in the POF-lounge.
*XBox users can also find and follow Stoo under the handle stoo1985 during the day.

Podcast on Fire have joined Sarcastic Gamers annual “Extra Life” charity effort. We’re raising money and awareness for my local Children’s Miracle Network hospital, Royal Hospital for Sick Children. On October 16th, 2010 I’ll attempt to play video games for 24-hours straight, and I’ve asked you to come by in hopes that you’ll support me by giving just $1.00 per hour ($24 total) (Stoo Note; That’s £15, but being honest, I would happily except donations of £2.40). Your donation is tax-deductible and 100% of your gift goes to help heal sick kids, here in Edinburgh.
This Fall, my fellow Extra Life gamers are going to make miracles happen for kids. I can’t do that without your support. My goal is to raise $240.00. On that date I do hope to have a live feed running on the website so you can watch my progress and send messages of encouragement, fuck, I might even get online and record a podcast with Ken during! Although I WILL NOT take the Webcam to the bath room when I play Planets vs. Zombies on the iPhone.

Illustrator/PoF Historian Paul Loudon maybe a familiar name to our regular listeners last year, helping with his coverage of Visible Secrets: Hong Kong’s Women Filmmakers, where he interviewed director Ivy Ho and of course he joined us on our Two Year Anniversary Special.
Paul is also known as a kick ass Illustrator and he even spiced up our Team Page this week (which is also updated with Kens biog btw!). We want to take out this time to thank Paul for his terrific work and encourage everyone to visit his official website; PaulLoudon.com
…then I could listen to Podcast on Fire on my Apple TV!
If you do own a Apple TV (ya jammy git), go to iTunes > Podcasts > search “Podcast on Fire”. So next time someone asks, what’s the crap on the telly, you say “Podcast on Fire” and say it with pride!!!
It has come to Stoo’s attention that Commentary On Fire has suddenly gotten more popular. For the YouTubers, Ken’s Channel has released our Eastern Condors commentary from last year. For our Impact readers you’ll also notice Commentary on Fire getting a mention on the News Page with our audio comm of the POF cult classic; Mismatched Couples. Not a subscriber to Impact? They’ve mentioned it on thier homepage too.
With this new found popularity, maybe we should record more…..
