Short Circuits 1 has grounded out, and outside of a few brave souls chosen to charge the mic, our friends from the last two weeks are now lost to history. What did it all mean? Are we different people, now that we have been touched by the many fingers of Ashton Tardigrade and the pure soul of Apollo Coen? And speaking of fingers, why are the Boston Beaneaters so mad at the Giants? In this episode: Alternate Cities Blaseball, blaseball happened we guess 🤷, 🚀 BUY $TACO 🚀🌙, 🕯️🌊🕯️SUMMON ELEANOR HILL🕯️🌊🕯️, people really don't talk about the philosophical implications of Sigmund Castillo enough, the 1886 Boston Beaneaters, even more discussion of the Boston Beaneaters (sorry we go for like 15 minutes it's worth it we promise), the most wild bug (it wasn't actually javascripts fault tho per Ump Possum it was postgres the whole time), rating SC1. ~shoutouts zone~ rotating a cow sick Layla Pork interpretation The 1886 Boston Beaneaters this specific IMDB user review which describes A League Of Their Own as an "Enjoyable Commercial Product".

Of all the teams in Blaseball, the Baltimore Crabs might have had the most Blaseball happen. Whether Crabs good or Crabs bad, they're almost always at the center of whatever's happening, both in and out of game. And yet all this is achieved while living far off in the strange world of the Crabitat. To look inside the shell, we've brought on fantastic artist and radical crabtain Gob, who's incredible art has helped create the look and feel of one of the most storied of teams. Content warnings: food from 2:43 to 4:21, carcinization (body horror / transformation / crustacean anatomy) from 5:00 to 5:45 and 11:30 to 15:45. In this episode: Nagomi #1, become crab, RIV every project that Blaseball happened to, you ever fanteam so hard you forget the fan part, Gob's next big project, Nagomi :c, Gob is basically responsible for half the players in the vault, sigh crabscourse, getting to steer the crabitat, crab lore heckin' rules. ~shoutouts zone~ Gob's Twitter and Tumblr Their super rad guide to your favorite Crab based on your favorite Taco This is a lemon stick The Notorious Richmond Harrison VLOGUE, with cover art feat the very Gob themselves Sinlizard's Twitter Crabs season 5 hype trailer (feat I'm The Crab Guy at 3:27) Pedro Davis x Valentine Games on Ao3 Strawberry crab (contains crab) Get hype for Clawloween: maincord, October 22 - 24 ~~~ Our theme music comes from the wonderful @HokutoHero.

The blaseball fandom is notoriously high output to a fault, but there are few individuals who have done more than this week's guest, Astrid! For those who aren't in the know (seriously, what are you even doing?), Astrid is the data witch behind Reblase, the creator of PluralKit, a songwriter for The Garages, a rep for the Core Mechanics, and is probably responsible for a lot of other things we *didn't* get to in this episode.

When Blaseball ended the first time, I was listening to the garages kill the gods. When Blaseball ended the second time, I was listening to storm's here. The Garages have been a fixture of Blaseball for a very long time, and to celebrate their 1 year anniversary they released a new live show - RIV.  To celebrate their celebration, we brought a few of them on! We finally sit down with LambMower (aka INOM), the producer for RIV, and longtime taco Cliff, who was one of several(!) drummers on the project! In this episode: the return of surprise questions, Spotify D:<, what exactly is a producer, herding catpeople, garages are in your Breckenridge stealing all your band kids, the band has expanded, go wild it's jazz, the garages next project, Lamb reveals a secret. ~shoutouts zone~ Here's the permalink to RIV, listen to it even if it means listening to it again House Phone Number 14 UNSTABLE on Vinyl Fourth Strike ~~~ Our theme music comes from the wonderful @HokutoHero.

Blaseball is sleeping, and we're scrambling to fill anything to fill that splort-shaped hole in our lives. Including... just maybe... "going outside?" ICB (sans Karp - we miss you Karp <3) met up in person to watch actual, real life Baseball! Turns out, it can be just as fun, exciting, and stupid as the original Blaseball. Let's talk about it! Feather note: This was our first time recording in-person, and so we had to put together an entirely new recording setup. Unfortunately, during the setup, some settings got messed up and the audio we captured is really bad quality. We've done our best to make it listenable, but it's not great, and we won't be offended if you have to skip it - we'll catch you at the next one. In this episode: face 2 face, horrifically predictive audio discussion, basically spies vs. tacos, baseball: boring?, the Yankees are basically the Tigers, Los Angeles Unlimited Angels of Anahiem, the Astros are a great team in a WWE kind of way, siesta, SIBR doesn't sleep, 10 minutes of vibin. ~shoutouts zone~ carp carp carp carp carp carp carp This is the highlights from the game in question The incredible Adell catch Shohei Ohtani being nice and Shohei Ohtani stealing souls Houston Spies (derogatory) ~~~ Our theme music comes from the wonderful @HokutoHero.

ICB is celebrating the siesta by taking the week off! But we can’t leave you with nothing - it’s finally time to deliver! We can’t think of a better way to break in the siesta than by talking about our favorite non-blaseball media!

In this episode: games besides blaseball, we fall into crabscourse, our season 14 playoff run was identical to the season 13 playoff run and thus less exciting but far more funny, sharks and swedish lessons, everything going according to plan (including losing Val), Vito has a great sales pitch, voting to maximize tragedy, the Crabs have all of the stars, tacos are going to take a nap, infusion is broken. ~shoutouts zone~ The Game Band’s announcement regarding strategic fluting Correction: the big eve online spying takedown was only 10 months, and it was not for the first great war, it was a “16,000 dollar” heist.

Stuff really didn't stop happening this week… so much occurred that we literally ran out of time trying to compile a complete list and make sense of the elections and figure out where we’re all standing for next season. So instead of a full season recap and election analysis, consider this our season 14 initial impressions! Spoiler alert: they’re salty and spicy. In this episode: Long Thursday, moss, player ages, what’s in your snack pack (redux), “snoil”, tarot reading, Wyatts Mason, ominous red dots, things that suck really bad, salt, the doctor diagnosed the blaseball community with high sodium and that doesn’t bode well for our long term fandom health, ICB is for entertainment purposes only and no opinion expressed on the podcast should be interpreted as representative of anything, Denny's as aftercare. ~shoutouts zone~ The Yellowstone magic, who have impeccable vibes and probably started Feather’s current mossposting obsession. Wyatt Mason (Disambiuation) All the Wyattheads on the Taco Stand (and everywhere else), yall going through it, but especially Lizzy who drew a fantastic Wyatt Mason IV shutter shades emote for a character who might not live through next season.

We had a great time wondering over all the new stuff, reacting to some games live, and just savoring the taste of fresh blaseball. And also not-savoring the taste of some rather criminal spicy milk variants. (Blame Hen) Also, sorry that this didn’t drop until Friday! That’s Feather’s fault, but in her defense, she was distracted (by blaseball). Content warnings: Extended discussion of alcohol, consumption of alcohol, consumption of spicy milk, swears, and some really bad radio from minute 52 (shortly after Karp comes online) to 1 hour 13 minutes in (our musical break, when we play the extended theme music).

We at Infinite Cities have used the blaseball wiki a ton, and you probably have also! (Although if you haven’t, be sure to check it out!) We’re thrilled to have a chance to sit down with wiki administrators Steven and Nesbitt and hear all about the wild ride that has been trying to document blaseball as it (and the wiki) has grown from a small side project to whatever it is we have now. Editor's Note: The audio in this one is a little rough in places. The hard part of having on so many different guests on is sometimes they don’t have a great audio setup! We did our best, but we apologize if anyone has a hard time. In this episode: Siesta 2, sonas, the Interdimensional Rumor Mill, Lore Keepers, mushroom Wheerer, The Discourse, surprise! You’re a community manager, (not) taking care of yourself, the fandomwiki is dead (don’t use the fandomwiki), really bad days that didn’t happen, really bad days that did happen. ~shoutouts zone~ The Blaseball Wiki Ketchup robot spacejam.com went down between recording this episode and us airing it.

Treat yourself with two scoops of guest episode this week, as we go off the rails talking about the new Blaseball musical with Matthew (Writer, The Collective Dadconscious) and Frankie (This/That Reporter)! Y’all, this musical is so good?! Did we mention it was created in just 72 hours?

We must have been bad, because there’s no blaseball under our tree this year! But that doesn’t mean our stockings are empty, so join us as we take a meandering journey through the Blaseballidays stream, the second Inside A Blaseball Q&A, and the ARGonauts interview with some of the devs, as well as general life and fandom in the Grand Siesta. Also - we’re taking a mini siesta of our own! No more ICB until January In this episode: Further predictions, we just really miss blaseball, the prediction stone hungers, hoping we’re wrong, code refactoring, crunch, the community hasn’t been slacking, Wyatt Mason is invincible, respect for the sim on a spiritual level, soul questions, SR++ Gold Limited Sexton Wheerer, feather is in a real jam (of the crab variety), fandom doesn’t stop, we wish there was more blaseball (and all we had to do was crack this stupid cypher), crab futures, and we really appreciate you all - every person who has participated in this weird, strange game.

Grab your grading pencils and join us in talking coffee cup, including a review of our predictions from way back before the entire cup kicked off! We then set the old-new teams aside and ask ourselves where we'd be if we weren't Tacos. In this episode: unhelpful utilities, ICB is moving to Tuesdays (and other scheduling concerns), 666-666, Feather passes - but barely, Will is accused of cheating, Karp learns it’s easy to bat 1.000 when you bet against the Game Band, Gary strikes out, we take turns carving new predictions into the Prophecy Stone, watching blaseball at work, and we all prepare for Tacos’ immanent ascension by finding new teams. Oh, and Will drops the latest Cyberpunk 2077 hot takes. ~shoutouts zone~ DEVOB Final Results Blaseballidays stream VOD Garages surprise album "we are the garages (vol 2)" Blaseballcares Magic Merch Chorby Tall ~~~ Our theme music comes from the wonderful @HokutoHero.

The light at the end of the long dark history tunnel is in sight, as we talk about season 10 and Day X! We also spend perhaps too much time talking about the twitter polls that have captured the fandom, because deprived of blaseball elections the fans will simply make their own.  Thanks to a poorly-timed blackout, Gary wasn’t able to record with us, but we're sure you’ll like this one even as his voice is missed. In this episode: please give us more blaseball we are starving, email rules, new merch, h*mestuck, playing into the macklesphere conspiracy, DEVOB, incredibly complex idol shenanigans, spontaneous black holes, good end implications, h*mestuck (again), SALT, fifth base. ~shoutouts zone~ Splortshub Coffee Cup Round 2 VOD (timestamped to Joel’s intro) Blaseball cares merch DEVOB hosted by @BlaseballPolls Sexton Wheerer Friend of Crows art by Cozzymandias Wyatt Quitter blowing out the Crabs comic by Fancymancer ~~~ Our theme music comes from the wonderful @HokutoHero.

Join the infinite cities crew at the ruins of the hellmouth outback steakhouse to talk to discord keeper and sunbeams court judge Sins! We ask it about moderating discord, the utterly bonkers amount of prep work that went into the trial, and what it was like to coordinate the many lawyers, courtroom staff, and waitstaff during the trial itself. In this episode: coffee cup round 2, the sunbeams are doing great, the Battletech RPG (and why the life path system needs to get stolen), a long history of lawsuits, bonecourse, was this a stage play?, massive overpreparation, multiple actual lawyers, dawning realizations, Parker MacMillan considerations, and negotiating with the devs. content warning: occasional adult language ~shoutouts zone~ The wings first lawsuit Click this immediately after 23:18, right after Sins says "we need to talk about bonecourse"  A mostly complete collection of evidence submitted for the trial Support blaseball Book of Seasons: Solstices Blaseball the Musical ~~~ Our theme music comes from the wonderful @HokutoHero.
