Volunteers and Friends


Much of what happens in CommodoreHUSTLE 019 - Bros Clubbing Bros is based on events during this Desert Bus.

Desert Bus Trailers was filmed during this Desert Bus under the direction of the chat.

This version of Desert Bus occurred at the Moonbase Mk III.

Team Kroze (who moderated the chat from the Moonbase) vs Team Ashton (who did the back end of the website)

Play Minecraft, Watch Topgear, Get Pig!

Silent Auctions, more madness from Ken 'Value Added' Steacy. He was in Toronto at the time, so he broadcasted his auctions and art from there.

Call-Ins: Ben "Yahtzee" Croshaw, Jon St. John (the voice of Duke Nukem), Notch (the creator of Minecraft), Mark Rosewater

The Warriors of Darkness (including Steve and Gibb) played Temple of the Lava Bears campaign Dungeons and Dragons campaign. Because Jeremy Petter ran the campaign.

Kate Stark adopted a kitten and allowed the chat to name it. The name "Aristotle" was eventually chosen.

Alex Steacy had to determine who was the kitty, in the form of CrapShot ep.23 - The Accusation. This lead to Alex getting clubbed at the end.

Bill's Mom's real name was revealed.

Madness: In reference to the 2006 film "300" and the accompanying meme ("Madness? This! Is! SPARTA!"), Madness became Desert Bus code for the number 300. If an auction went over $300, it was deemed Madness, and given a Madness level for each multiple of $300 the bids reached (an auction ending at $1000 would be Triple Madness).
