SILENCE! Prestige Format #1

July 22nd, 2016

No Regular SILENCE! this week. We were all too stunned by the news that Rita Ora will be replacing Tyra Banks on America’s Next Top Model. Surely Rita can’t reach the preposterous heights of self importance that Tyra managed. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

Instead we have the first SILENCE! Prestige Format, the special collector’s edition podcasts which was made available to C Unit Patreontologists back in January of this year. This is a nice chat between The Beast Must Die, Gary Lactus and Clark Burscough.

Named after the last son of Krypton, Clark is the assistant director of the Thought Bubble. We talk about many things including the broken reading experience,
The Amalgam Universe, his origins as a comics reader and Thought Bubble via the dad we all want, Invisibles, Grant Morrison, Marvel’s Doctor Who comics, 2000AD comics, comics comics, comics comics comics, the Thought Bubble party, his own writing for the Regular Show comic and Beef Ho Fun amongst many other things.

Do please enjoy.

Welcome to Diane… number 8.

Rosie, Bob and Adam feast on the seventh episode and Season 1 finale of David Lynch and Mark Frost’s Twin Peaks, The Last Evening.

As the night of February 2nd 1989 drags on the town turns from cherry pie and donuts to dishes of the flesh: Nadine has a picnic, Josie eats blood, Jacques salivates, and the Mill is consumed by fire. Dale Cooper learns more about the last night of Laura Palmer and the darkness that swallowed her.

Expect: Jacques the cave man, the construction of mystery, sexual initiation, and the redemption of the megabitch.

Since a remote time, people had abandoned it, without order expressing their words. Since that time earthquakes and lightning had dispersed its sun-dried clay; the bricks of the casing had split, and the earth of the interior had been scattered in heaps.

We hope you have enjoyed season one off Diane…. Season two will be along next week!

Welcome to Diane… number 8.

Rosie, Mark and Bob face facts as they discuss the sixth episode of David Lynch and Mark Frost’s Twin Peaks, Realization Time.

It’s six days since Laura died and those who seek her killer are playing dress-up. Maddie plays Laura, Coop and Ed play oral surgeons, and Audrey plays with fire. Storm clouds gather and Waldo the mynah bird is killed.

Expect: the problem of beauty, ghostly recordings, Calvin Klein’s Obsession, and a Hank and Harry hair-off

There are no desiring-machines that exist outside the social machines that they form on a large scale; and no social machines without the desiring machines that inhabit them on a small scale.

If Diane…‘s midsummer song is soothing you, let  us know in the comments below. If you think impersonation is a fundamentally satanic art, then tell us, again in the comments below. If you don’t want to comment, then please just tell your friends to listen!
