    First off, thanks for the mention, guys! :D Now then.

    1. No, I won’t marry you.
    2. Wee /= we, but damn, you almost made me wee when I heard that!
    3. There’s something particularly fun about being mocked in a good way — thanks again!

    Woman and healers – I think it’s more about playing support roles of which there aren’t many variants. Healers are the most popular support class. I think you’re also dead-on with the pert classes. I’ve NEVER been a straight DPS class. I’m a pet class or a healer and I’m someone who doesn’t group much. how nuts is that – solo healer but I enjoy myself.

    The predominance of women in these roles is likely tied to the fact that woman are just now coming out as consistent gamers and that might feed into them not wanting to be classes that typically lead an encounter like a tank. Interesting conversation.

    And as for hating on Vin… I’d be willing to do all sorts of unseemly things with him. I love his sci-fi flicks and he gets serious street cred trying to realize his gaming dream.

    Great show.

    Grats on the job Jason!
    As for women… agreed on the support/pet classes. I’ve only ever known one woman who played a tank.. and she kinda sucked :p
    But I’ll give her credit for trying.

    @Jason – Yes, congrats on the new job. Sorry to forget about that part. I tend to listen to Channel Massive in two parts since it’s a good length show. This is probably TMI but I’m being very serious…

    Because the show is a good length – hour or more, I start the show while I’m in the tub. I chill, listen, sip on a glass of wine and have some laughs. I’ll comment on something after that then go off to do something else and finish the show later that evening.

    Anyhoo – as for Vin, I have to say that I love his sci-fi movies. I can’t help myself. I’d like them even if he wasn’t the star. he just makes them juicier. I’m not interested in his XXX movies or anything else. Just his sci-fi.

    As for the unseemly things well, you’d have to be him for me to tell ya. *wink*
