When I heard the learn’d astronomer; When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me; When I was shown the charts and the diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them; When I, sitting, heard the astronomer, where he lectured with

much applause in the lecture-room, How soon, unaccountable, I became tired and sick; Till rising and gliding out, I wander’d off by myself, In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time, Look’d up in perfect silence at the stars. W.W.

That was hilarious!

With every "Helllloooooooo Everybody!" I had to listen hard to tell if if was the real Aldie or one of you imposters. The guy doing Derk had him DOWN! You guys did a great job with getting the timing and types of comments Derk and Aldie made during GeekSpeak/BGSpeak.

Mr. Moneybags was a crack-up too.

It was a nice tribute to a great Podcast! Thanks for this fitting farewell.

Long live GeekSpeak!

P.S. I wish I had followed through and sent my alternate lyrics to you guys for Bohemian Rhapsody (Boardgeekian Rhapsody) so you could have recorded it for this final podcast.

Here's the link if you ever want to check it out:

Aldie are you going to put this up so it is available via iTunes GeekSpeak BoargGameSpeak?

I've got a download running, but it would be handy if it was just automagically available for all the GeekSpeak fans!

That was funny - they've obviously listened to the show. The wine, the language, the "that's a good point", etc. Good stuff.

WOW! Best Episode Evar....almost

I have to say that the Turtles are immensely talented, and I enjoyed every moment.

I also have to say that their impressions of you and Derk are hilarious!

I know Derk is no longer local, but it has to make you yearn to do it again, doesn't it Scott?

I also find it amazing that it all happened in about a year and 1/2...it never felt so short....

Hilarious listen. I do like that the new Derk sounds like a cross between the old Derk and StrongBad.

Very enjoyable tribute to the dearly departed show.

Did anyone else hear Bob + Doug McKenzie mixed up in the Derk/Aldie impressions?

I might be one of the few people who subscribed that wasn't a member of BoardGameGeek (until today.) I didn't even know this was the last show until I listened to it. What a bummer. I enjoyed it while we had it.
