For those who don’t know: when Gbot isn’t going on his travels and adventures, he is an editor for Lost Anarchy magazine. As such, he often attends music events such as the NAMM convention in Anaheim, California. This year, he takes you along with him.

Congratulations to Cody (yes, Cody from the Crawfish episode) on his first episode as director.

Discs of Tron champion: Gbot

Gbot has entered The Grid

UPDATE 1/13/2011: We got some of the original footage up on our secondary YouTube account now. The Power Surge show is all we have for now, but Gbot might have some Laserman somewhere on his hard drive. We’ll get that up when we find it.

Hey remember those ElecTRONica images we posted awhile back? Well that episode never made it off the drawing board because they were filmed with a camera that saved files in some weird format that the editing software couldn’t handle. Our Oktoberfest episode met the same fate.

Since the movie is coming out this weekend (I’ve been getting reading by playing some Tron Evolution on Xbox), we have posted some of the images from our “lost” episode on our Facebook page.

Look back at Gbot’s bests and worsts of 2010. We will be back next week to begin our month of Gbot in Las Vegas specials.

So much for “it never rains in Southern California”; it’s been coming down hard! Never fear, this week we open the Gbot archives (better know as Gbot’s hard drive) and take a look at one of our “lost” episodes. We originally had planned a cupcake episode, but after eating one cupcake Gbot decided they were too sweet for him to eat more than one. Also he went on an anti-capitalist rant about eating $4 cupcakes during a recession when children are asking Santa for clothing instead of toys. It took us 2 hours to calm him down.

Anyways, the episode became a BBQ episode when Gbot decided to take the crew to Compton for some Bludso’s BBQ. Bludso’s is a small place and it was a bit hard to film there. The food was awesome, but a lot of the footage we got wasn’t the greatest. You can hear people ordering in the background in half the video since the place is that small. So sorry for the rough episode this week, although I must say Bludso’s served some of the best food we’ve had yet on this show.

There isn’t a real Bluth banana stand, but frozen bananas actually are a popular item in Orange County. Dad’s Donuts and Sugar N Spice both claim to be the “original”. This week, Gbot visits both.

“A hot dog at the ball park is better than steak at the Ritz.”

Bogart said it best. Although Gbot doesn’t go to a ball park this week, he does try two legendary hot dogs; although they are legendary for their own reasons. Pink’s is a LA institution (soon to open a branch in LAX) while Costco is just a legendary value.

What an awesome night. This is an amazing promotion they are running. Everyone should go check it out.

If you like Tron, you’ll love ElecTRONica!

Greetings user

Gbot has his identity disc!

I think that would fit Gbot

Costumes from the movie are on display.

Check out this week’s all new episode as Gbot visits a Korean festival and enjoys some traditional Korean foods as well as some not so traditional Korean tacos.

Update: An exclusive full frame version of this video can now be found on Gbot’s Facebook page. Follow the link to the right (or use this link http://www.facebook.com/gbotstna), LIKE us, and look for it under the videos tab. More Facebook exclusives will be posted in the future.

Check out the first installment of our new semi-regular series: Gbot’s Mini Adventures. In this installment, we’ll see what happens when a labor union tries to protest outside the happiest place on Earth.

We’re working to make all future episodes viewable in HD. We’ve recently upgraded our software and a new HD camera is on the way. Stay tuned folks, it’s only going to get better from here!

Things get a little out of hand this week when Gbot is challenged to crawfish eating contest by his buddy Cody.
