YOU JUST HAVEN’T EARNED IT YET BABY

It’s that time people. A time of change. A time of peace. A time of war. A time of hope, of laughter, of tears. A time of tests. A time of trials. A time of twins. A time to live, a time to die. A time to kill. A time of hours, of minutes and seconds. A time to sleep. A time to wake. A time to eat. A time to fast. A time to slow. A time of potential. A time of possibility. A time of depair. A time of…TIME>

    Glad to hear attendances are picking up! If you want to cheer yourself up Mr Lactus, why not try listening to the latest episode of the 2000 AD Thrillcast featuring their panel from the San Diego Comic Con? You can hear an audience that apparently consists of somewhere between three and four members…

    Beast, I know exactly what you mean about reading that issue of Shade years down the line. I just watched Alien for the first time in a looong time, it’s still great obviously but what really struck me was watching the deleted scenes from something so familiar for the first time. Gave me goosebumps watching them.

    Glad to see the vast distance doesn’t have too much of a negative impact on the wee podcast. And I hope the people in Edinburgh figure out that they need to go and see Fraser Geesin work his magic.

    That Robocop v Terminator story is proper Simonson, I just realised I no longer own it, but I’m sure I’ll pick it up again at some point.

    I found the original floppies of Robocop v Terminator: Dawn of Skynet at the store for like $5. I was pleasantly surprised by how cool it ended up being. My copies even came with these cardboard standees of the characters that you could cut out and fold.

    The unexpected new Silence! was a rare treat. Above and beyond the call of duty, you folk.

    I fear festival comedy shows, ‘cos what if there’s no-one there and it’s really awkward? I’m coming along on monday, though! I really should be there every night, shouldn’t I? REALLY making it weird. I only live 20 minutes away.

    COMICS! Tokyo Ghost is okay, mainly just reading for the art now and also ‘cos it’s nearly finished.

    It took a sharp dive story-wise after the first arc, when it went for the kinda dodgy “white woman becomes the avatar of Olde Japan” and now it’s going for the super-dull “Natural world versus science” thing which is all sorts of cliched. Bah!

    Could tie up nicely, though. I liked the relationship of the main two characters, that was nice. More of that.

    Robocop vs. Terminator is great stuff. Just relentless daft fun with those big Simonson figures. Braw.

  5. Gary Lactus Says:

    Yeah, that whole nature versus science thing I always feel is a false dichotomy. I didn’t mention this when talking about Tokyo Ghost as I’m kinda hoping it may include this in the conclusion.

  6. Paul Jon Thrillin' Says:

    Yeah, I’m assuming it’ll be addressed! Hope so.
