    JK Rowling stumbled on witchy sounding names for instance toadflax, goutwort, grommel, and others in Culpeper’s Complete Herbal, a well-known book of herbal lore from the 1600s.

    Ryan Scott’s credibility on anything pop-culture related went away the second he said that Titanic’s ending was perfect. Oops I meant Lost.

    I was going to point out the Hog’s Head but Brad G. beat me to it, and DANG Karen gets a lot of comments.

  5. sdf says:

    Nah, she has her moments but it’s the Undynamic Duo that makes it interesting.

    We’re overdue for some Patrick – the time is right!

  6. Ryan Scott says:

    Karen’s the glue that holds this thing together, man — I couldn’t do it without her. She’s awesome! 🙂

    I never knew people actually hated Karen. I always thought it was an inside joke I missed at some point.

    Dude, Karen is the shit. When she’s not on the Geekbox, I’m actually reluctant to listen. She can be very enthusiatic and she brings a good amount of energy to the podcast that is obviously missing when she’s absent.

    BTW, the Konami was the most embarrassing press conference I’ve seen, ever. Poorly translated teleprompters, badly told jokes, bizarre Lucha Libre’ slap-fight moments, technical hiccups, etc. Everything that could have gone wrong, did go wrong.

    How did you guys manage to draw the conclusion that Karen was hating on Asian-y Asian people?

    Captain Curmudgeon, he’s our hero!
    He’s gonna knock excitement down to zero!

    Welcome to another issue of the Grumpbox, where we struggle with our OCD, hate on new things, and love anything with nostalgia! With our four powers combined, we create Captain Curmudgeon!!

    Karen is not the only one on the podcast with outlandish ideas sometime. They’re called opinions, everyone’s entitled to them.

  11. Rose Spinoza says:

    Jesus. So many people harping on Karen for stupid things (I’m talking comments, not RScott n crew.)

    Anyways, I think Karen’s indicision-ness is cute. I too have troubles sometimes making decisions in games. If only because now-a-days I can only play a game once. It’s not something that will keep me from playing a game, but still.

    Also, I loved Karen’s report on the HaryPotter section of IslandsofAdventure 🙂 . And yeah, it gets hot here in central Florida, but I kinda like it :p . (To answer your question on how FL’s can stand it though, most people tend to try to stay inside ^^;. )

    Karen is the Geekbox as Kate is to LOST. She is so damn annoying and that fact that she can’t make a choice in a freaking video game because it will keep her up at night. That almost made me stop listening because she is so fucking annoying.

    Next time Ryan you record on the go.
    Bye the one linked bellow its 99 dollars, and it is fantastic. Just put it on a table and push record.

    I think Karen doesn’t care for asians who act asian, and I’m not even joking.

  15. ProtocolSnow says:

    I have a different take on Konami’s press conference. Karen kept harping on how embarrassing it was to see the Japanese speakers give presentations, but I thought they were incredibly refreshing. They were relaxed and casual, looking like they were enjoying their time on stage and showing true passion for their projects. Karen wants professional speakers… well, some of the American presenters at Konami were very polished and well-rehearsed but sooooo boring.

  16. Brad Grenz says:

    The Hog’s Head totally appears in the Order of the Pheonix movie. It’s the place the kids first meet to talk about creating Dumbledore’s Army.

    I like Karen’s point – I’m sick to death of jaded-assed games journalists. Open a flower shop and gtfo already.
