The Knurd Project
Monthly+
 
"Knurd is the opposite of being drunk, it’s as sober as you can ever be. It strips away all the illusion, all the comforting pink fog in which people normally spend their lives, and lets them see and think clearly for the first time ever. Then, after they’ve screamed a bit, they make sure they never get knurd again."

Look, we have to find our laughs where we … Co ...…

And besides that, your humble(?) hosts also touch on: The … Continue rea ...…
 
We’ve finally got our extra hero/sixth (or rather seventh) ranger and here’s where we start to get to know him and your humble hosts–once we got over the explosion of excitement that is that Noel’s robot has lasers on its knees–set in to have some thoughts about him at one another and at you.

We also discuss all your favorite normal and not weird at all topics, like Funko pops, the death of our previous host, the best small blunt force objects to use in combat, and everyones favorite small child antics!…
 
It's another episode of Teenagers With Attitude. There's some jokes, a bunch of shouting over one another and general abuse piled onto the main host, and Power Rangers is kind of bad, you guys.
