In recent times (or, in one case, back in October) there have been appearances by all manner of Sarahs and Alistairs in our videos, so it seems appropriate to clear up which ones are which. And, perhaps more crucially, which ones aren’t.
The Sarah who appears in Dear God, WHY: Devour is Sarah Goodwin, author and cake maker extraordinaire. Books (with cover artwork by Vikkie) here, here, here and here, cake in our stomachs. Mmmmm, cake…
The Sarah in Dear God, WHY: Creep Van is Alex’s girlfriend Sarah Spradlin, who came all the way from Illinois to watch a film featuring a misty, romanticised flashback to an advert for off-brand Viagra. And then watch it all over again for the video. Pity her.
The Alistair who gave such a wonderfully eeeeeeevill performance at the end of The Other Side is Alistair Aitcheson, game dev and gentleman. Alistair specialises in multiplayer games playable on a single tablet in which you certainly aren’t encouraged to mess with your opponent’s side of the board, nudge nudge, wink wink and will be giving a talk on the subject at GDC Europe this year.
Finally, the Alistair from On Board, Broad Band, Narrow Mind and the very end of Brain Storm is Alistair Wright, one of our regular tabletop RPG/board gaming group. I haven’t actually seen him since his birthday, when I left him on a boat surrounded by alcohol,* but I’m sure he’s fine. Just fine.
For the sake of convenience, Mr Aitcheson is known as Ali, while Mr Wright goes by the soubriquet of Nerd. Sarahs are usually identified by context.
*That is to say, he was sitting in a boat and his seat was surrounded by glasses containing a variety of alcoholic beverages. The boat wasn’t floating in alcohol. Just thought I’d make that clear.
Although that would be cool.
