Vlog Ep. 243: Fears and Phobias


Tonight's episode of #BaduyPride was all about different fears and phobias, because we wanted to wrap up Dune Week in a way that was worthy of a story franchise that gave us something as epic as The Litany Against Fear. And this felt like a nice way to end another long week as well, so it all worked out. 

So we started this episode in classic Baduy Pride fashion by going through definitions of different phobias that are out there. We knew there are a lot of them, but actually going through them really stresses just how many things we can become afraid of. And I really was amused at how so many of those fears seem to be tied to different modern conveniences and technologies, which is mind-blowing. But ultimately fears must be faced, and we tried to share what tips we could for facing one's fears and making sure that you remain after the experience, as the litany says.

Vlog Ep. 242: The Road to Dune: Part One


Dune week continues on #BaudyPride, and today is when we talk about the actual upcoming Dune (Part One) movie directed by Denis Villeneuve. We had reacted to the first teaser trailer last year, but a lot has happened since then, including the movie's release schedule getting delayed by a year. And thus we figured it would be fun to do a sort of follow-up episode to go over some of the movie tie-in releases and other marketing efforts.

This episode also included my live reaction to Tobie surprising me with a custom Dune sandworm dice holder created by The Owlbear Scavenge. This is collectible is insanely adorable and terrifying at the same time and I am a happier geek because of it. Tobie loves catching me off guard with surprises like this and I guess this episode marks one of the instances when we managed to capture the moment on video.

Vlog Ep. 241: Spices and Flavors


Tonight's episode of #BaduyPride was all about spices, those delightful additives that give true flavor and diversity to meals. We included this in our lineup of Dune Week episodes because a particular (fictional) spice is a big deal in Dune, so that was enough to run with this here. And while we're not culinary experts, we do enjoy food.

So we covered the basics - clarifying the differences between spices and herbs to get that out of the way. We blew Tobie's mind about salt being a condiment and not a spice. And from there, the flavor journey truly began. And if there's anything we can take away from this discussion, is that we probably haven't even scratched the surface of how exciting the world of spices and other seasonings can be and we'll continue to experiment when we can.

Vlog Ep. 240: Dune Imperium


Today's episode of Baduy Pride kicks off Dune Week with one of our favorite new games, Dune Imperium by Dire Wolf Digital. Designed by Paul Dennen, this game supports 1-4 players (yes, it has a solo mode) who all vie for control of the desert planet of Arrakis. The deck building, worker placement game combines a lot of different elements into a very fun strategic game. 

This was definitely one of the tabletop gems to come out of 2020 and I can't shake off the feeling that this game hasn't gotten as much attention as it could have. Sure, the movie got delayed a year and that probably threw off their marketing plans, but I really feel like this game deserves a lot more love, regardless of how you feel about the Dune franchise. And hopefully, this episode will help add our voice to support this really solid game.

Vlog Ep. 239: Dating Pet Peeves


Tonight's Friday #BaduyPride episode was all about dating pet peeves, and we had a lot of fun with all the different stories viewers shared during the stream. It's good to take a step back and laugh at these things whether they're seemingly ridiculous things that bother us or maybe the silly things that we're guilty of ourselves. 

Pet peeves are ultimately unique to each person and so there's a lot of room for misunderstandings and all that crazy stuff. But I stand by my statement at the end where it boils down to how much the rest of the date is going to determine how bad a pet peeve really is. But I'm also excited about the thought of what Tobie brought up about how pet peeves might be totally different for a lot of the digital-first generations that are coming into their own. I wonder if anyone will chime in with their own quirky irks in the comments.
