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.

OH YOU HEADLESS CHICKEN, CAN THOSE POOR TEETH TAKE SO MUCH KICKING?
Are you a magician? Because whenever I look at you, every other podcast disappears and stops downloading.
I’m not a photographer, but I can picture me and you together recording a podcast.
Are you an interior decorator? Because when I saw you, the entire room became beautiful and full of amazing pod-content.
Are you a camera? Because every time I look at you, I smile and leave a comment in the comments.
Did you sit in a pile of sugar? Cause you have a pretty sweet ass. PODC-ASS-T THAT IS AMIRIGHT??
<ITEM> It’s the two! Back again! It seems like just a week since their dulcet tones were here speaking truthisms and dropping raw wisdom. But nonetheless here we are. It’s A Gray Cult. It’s A Stagy Curl. It’s Cry At A Slug. It’s Gary Lactus. It’s Atheists Be Muted. It’s Ambushed Tie Test. It’s Headsets Tub Time. It’s The Beast Must Die. It’s Ice Lens. It’s License. It’s SILENCE!
<ITEM> There’s an extended admin/sponsorship session with recollections of Small Press Day 2016 at Dave’s Comics, Gosh Comics and Orbital Comics. Plus The Beast Must Die talks about Cerebus Again.

RECORD COMPANY MAN, I WON’T BE COMING TO DINNER
Imagine a blurb. A blurb like you’ve never seen. A golden, beautiful blurb that shines like the sun. A blurb that glistens like dew on morning grass. A blurb that sings like the strike of a tuning fork against an angel’s backside. Imagine a blurb like that. That blurb is here. Can you taste it?
<ITEM> It’s the return of The Beast Must Die, joining Gary Lactus for another ker-lassic episode of SILENCE! But wait! What’s this? It’s also a Bobsy episode! A Bobs-isode!
<ITEM>There’s some admin and a whole load of My Two Dads chat. Of course. And some self-promotion for the our sister and brother podcasts Diane and The Earth-Pig Diaries. And news of our various appearances at Small Press Day 2016
<ITEM>Three men in a Reviewniverse? It’s a king-size edition with more digressions than you can shake a fully painted graphic novel at.
