I KNOW IT MIGHT SOUND STRANGE BUT I BELIEVE IN THE COMING BACK BEFORE TOO LONG
In this latest pulse-shredding, nerve-shredding, skin-shredding, heart-shredding, mind-shredding, soul-shredding, bed-shredding, wedding-shredding, shred-shredding episode of SILENCE! you will two, count them two grown men discussing comics. On the internet. I know. Can you believe it? Into the brave new world we go, with pioneering hosts Gary Lactus & The Beast Must Die guiding the way.
<ITEM> Listen! That’s the sound of admin in it’s natural habitat. And look! There goes a herd of Sponsorship pass by us. MR James adaptations, mince pies, and decorating the tree? It’s beginning to smell a lot like Christmas…Oh and plenty of cat-chat just the way you like it.
<ITEM> There’s a whole lot of wheel-spinning and flim-flam as Gary Lactus talks about some modern comics such as the Batman Annual, Deadly Class and Great Lake Avengers while TBMD tries to derail at every turn. But it’s okay, as he’s here to talk about Batman: Son of the Demon and Devlin Waugh: Chasing Herod. That’s the Reviewniverse for you. Always different, always the same.
<ITEM> Bit of chat about DC: Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash and the death-pall of Dawson’s Creek.
Then it’s out like trout (that’s a thing kids say, right?) after some shameless hucksterism and a bit of the old toodle pip.

Welcome to Diane… #24
SHE’S BACK! This week Rosie, Adam and Bob struggle to the end of the series’ rough patch, discussing the twenty-second episode of David Lynch and Mark Frost’s Twin Peaks, sometimes called ‘Masters and Slaves’. The show we all love is here somewhere but it’s like a black film has grown over it.
This week on Diane then, we talk veils.
Windham Earle employs a surrogate, the mists at the Great Northern finally clear, and Evelyn mourns the passing of the wild ride. Work slowly and with care. Everything must be written in a steady, uncompromising hand.
In the Heaven World, we look at Reality minus two veils. If I have in my Heaven World a friend whom I love, I see him minus two veils, As I know my friend here below, he and I are both veiled. I loved him when on earth; but when later after death I enter the Heaven World, then I shall see him minus two veils, and he will reveal to me certain attributes of himself.
Hey hey it’s the begging bit: if you like what you hear, do us a super solid and give us five stars on iTunes! Cheers, love you!

WITH DELIVERY SMOOTH LIKE WATER FROM A FOUNTAIN, THAT’S WHY I CAN MOVE ANY MOUNTAIN
Welcome to the SILENCE! solo dining experience. For starters we have a delicious shame of kale served in a jam jar and balanced on a faucet. You’ll hate it. Fir main we have a full miniaturized roast served on a teflon sphere. For desert, well no one’s ever stayed that long to be honest. We’ve stopped bothering with desert.
Tuck in to a succulent new SILENCE! Well, it’s not that succulent. The Beast Must Die isn’t around so Gary Lactus and the Galacticats handle this one on their own. There’s some admin where we find out at last what the opposite of a crow is and some news of a Dan White original art sale! Among the sponsershippery there’s talk of buying Fraser Geesin comics too.
Then it’s off to the reviewniverse where Gary and the Galacticats talk up A.D. After Death, All-New X-Men Annual, The Ultimates 2, Gennedy Tartakovsky’s CAGE!, Sixpack and Dogwelder, Angry Youth Comix and passing mentions of Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur and Civil War 2. Let’s be honest, Gary does most of the talking, the Galacticats aren’t that committed to podcasting.
A real life mountain tale concludes the pod and then you’re free again.
