Good episode? Give it some love!
What is the manliest haircut of all time? We're joined by animator, musician and sketch comedian, Robert Benfer (https://twitter.com/RobertBenfer), also known as "Knox" from the Newgrounds days. Robert and I go way back on the Internet, back to the Web 1.0 era. Here's the ice cave video I talked about in this episode:


We had a rousing debate about hair, of which I have very little--by choice (just not mine). Robert argues on behalf of the classic buzz cut as the manliest hair style, citing some dude or chick in Mass Effect; is there a difference in the future? Mikey Bolts (https://twitter.com/MikeyBolts) is out this week, and grandpa Rucka is just confused by the whole state of modern video games. Though Rucka (https://www.youtube.com/user/itsRucka) weighs in with the heavy-weight of Internet rhetoric and drops the S-word with regards to bald-headed people. Is that word sexual? Superior? Spellbinding? All three? You'll have to listen to find out.
