    I’m tired of paying top dollar for hair color at the salon. I’m learning to color my hair at home.

  2. davis says:

    Very interesting post. And I think it’s very important to choose the right color for different skin tones.

  3. eddie says:

    Thank you for posting. My favorite hair color is red.

  4. ella says:

    Thanks for posting. I have had my hair colored for over ten years and I like to look for some good hair colors on this page.

  5. Gibs says:

    The best proposed name for the new Robocop:
    “Officer Robit”. No question.

  6. Aaron says:

    For “Best Love Story in a Video Game” Twitter game, I’d cast my vote for Yuna and Titus in Final Fantasy X. The heartbreak of two young people coming together under their circumstances they did… there was such an undercurrent of sorrow in even their happiest moments together. And then the end… so tragic!

    Yuna singing “1000 Words” in the FMV of Final Fantasy X-2, and then collapsing to her knees, overcome with emotion and tearing up at the conclusion of the song… total ‘baww’ moment.

  7. Andy says:

    This was my intro to JOMO; he is hilarious. Thanks indoor kids.

  8. Wade says:

    Glad to hear you’re loving our Don’t Starve game, Emily!

    Many of us here at Klei love you and Kumail’s podcast, and listen to it while we work. :)

    Way to keep it positive this week Nerdist Commenters!

    I wish regular Jordan Morris episodes could be built into the format. Love it every time that guy is on. Can’t wait for The Meltdown and Silicon Valley too. Go Indoor Kids!

  10. Sol says:

    Great episode guys – Jordan’s always awesome. Really looking forward to Silicon Valley, Kumail – just watched the trailer and it looks like it’s got the potential to be amazing – when you say it’s a really good 8-episode story, do you mean it’s a one-off series or are we hoping it gets picked up for more seaons?

  11. John Fraser says:

    Any chance that underneath the picture you’re using for each episode you can have pictures of each person featured in that episode?

  12. angelina says:

    emily is definitely spot on about teenage/immature girls’ thoughts on seeing hot chicks on tv, movies, and pretty much anywhere, i actually remember thinking the exact same way

  13. Neeni says:

    Yay Jordan! My favorite guest! If I didn’t love JJGO so much I’d want him to be your third wheel. This podcast has really been amazing recently, thanks Kumail and Emily! You make the three hours drives to visit my in-laws bearable.

  14. Rob Rousseau says:

    Definitely, definitely play The Last of Us: Left Behind as soon as possible. Cannot stress this enough. If you don’t I will comment angrily about it.

  15. WetNightmare says:

    Emily, the weird thing is Wynona Rider’s a natural blonde. Edward Scissor Hands was the ONE movie in which she wasn’t sporting hair dye.

  16. Helix says:

    I hope you guys cover this next time! 1000’s of people controlling one gameboy online trying to beat pokemon. Here’s everything you need to know

  17. BurntToShreds says:

    Nice Red Queen from DMC4 in the artwork. Too bad it’s on the wrong character.

  18. Bleep-Bloop says:

    Does anyone know what game is Emily talking about at the 17-minute mark? Sounds fun. Terraria-ish.

    Also, glad to see more of Jordan. Good shit.

  19. melf melfman says:

    ‘poonin some ‘maids!

  20. Al says:

    If you guys stop this podcast today, it would have been worth it just for these awesome graphic headers.

  21. AbominaBill says:

    Great show, guys!

    Emily, I recently fell into a Don’t Starve hole, too. If you’re being chased by a treeman you can plant some pinecones and he’ll go back to sleep. I like the librarian because she can build a lot of stuff without a science machine. A steady supply of poop is essential to your survival.

    Also, when you guys started talking about Dame Judi Dench I had the uncontrollable urge to refer to her as DJD (like JTT). Please pass this on to the rest of your hollywood friends and make it a thing. Thanks!

  22. Noel says:

    Great show again guys. I really need to check out Jordan Morris’ podcast, he is great every time he is on. I always look forward to listening to your podcasts every week.

    You guys should totally get that artwork on some merch if you don’t already. I wish I had a sword like that.

  23. NotMF says:

    JoMo always makes for a great time!

  24. Jill says:


    Every time your phone goes off on the podcast I always look at my phone thinking I have a text.

    I’m not complaining, I think its funny that I fall for it every time.

    I like that tone. It sounds like I’m getting a telegram.

  25. novaseason says:

    I think when you rhyme a word with itself it is actually called a non-rhyme. It is a real thing.

  26. MattBep says:

    I just wanna say that I absolutely LOVE Jordan Morris. Freaking hilarious guy and I always geek out a bit when I see him as a guest on the show.

  27. phillip medoc says:

    Two things:

    The artwork/banner for this week’s episode is incredible — is that Emily in the game Journey, and Kumail with a Final Fantasy gunblade?

    And thanks for having your weekly episodes up first thing Monday; you guys are always so prompt about doing so. It’s the first podcast I listen to every week. Your fans appreciate your work on the Indoor Kids, especially with everything else you have going on. Looking forward to the Meltdown TV show!

  28. Col726 says:

    Just wanted to say, the artwork for this episode is amazing! Bravo!

  29. Spencer says:

    To start, Great Episode Guys! I loved it but i love most episodes. I can’t be alone in hating Big Bang Theory in it’s shitty attempt at being a show for “nerds.” I’ve tried watching it but it’s as bad as Two and a Half Men but replace bowling shirts with Star Wars shirts.

  30. wlad says:

    You guys should really give the TLOU DLC a whirl. I’d love to hear Emily’s take on it.

  31. Alec says:

    From what I heard on the giant bombcast, the Episodes from Liberty City DLC didn’t sell that well, so we probably won’t be seeing that kind of expandalone content for a while.

  32. Emily says:

    In this week’s episode of The Indoor Kids, Emily V Gordon incorrectly recalled the original name of the band Oingo Boingo. The actual name is The Mystic Knights of the Oingo Boingo. We are filled with regret and ask for your forgiveness.

  33. Sarah says:

    I saw the Lego Movie on Saturday. I downloaded the song in my way home from the theater and have been listening to it non stop. Glad to hear I’m in good company.

  34. MrTony says:

    Video games are
    A shining beacon of fun.
    It is time for sex.
