SILENCE! #241

November 22nd, 2017

 
I HEAR WE HAD A GOOD TIME, I HEAR I WAS A RIOT. I WOULD’VE LIKED ME A LOT LAST NIGHT

Forty years I been a blurb-writer y’know? My father before me was a blurb-writer and his father before him. And he started the blurb-writers union and all – every blurb-writer worth their salt still talks in hush tones about the blurb riots of 1933. Wouldn’t have the rights we do today without my grandfather and his mates. It’s in the blood is what I’m saying. If you cut me, do I not blurb. Heh.

But it’s a dying art. It’s dead to be honest. Got these new machines that can write a blurb in half the time, and no chance of a spelling mistake or a missed deadline. Oh sure they don’t read the same, but when the bosses see those bottom line figures, you think they care? And the readers hardly notice, that’s the real kicker. In too much of a hurry to get to the content. Click the link, access the content. Content, content content. Well what about conTEXT is what I say? What’s the point. You probably aren’t even reading this anyway. Oh well. Sorry grandpa…I’m trying. I’m trying to do you proud. Once more unto the breach…

<ITEM> HA! A new SILENCE! and it’s only been a week? What is this – a regular schedule or something??

<ITEM> Gary Lactus & The Beast Must Die hold hands and do their merry aural dance for your ears only. Bit of Dadmin, some righteous Sponsorship, Gary’s Birthday and the Beast recounts his adventures in going VIRAL!

<ITEM> Reviewniverse shenanigans ensue with talky-talks of Fence, the DC House of Horror special, Bob Godfrey, 2000AD, Indigo Prime, Revere, John Smith, Captain America, Generation Gone, Not Brand Echhh and more, dammnit so much more. Also features some live John Constantine-ing.

<ITEM> I Reckymend features Paul Verhoeven’s brilliant Elle and the latest Adam Buxton Podcast.

And that really is, my friends, the end.

I TOOK A TRAIN, I TOOK A PLANE…AH WHO CARES YOU ALWAYS END UP IN THE CITY

“You remind me of the babe!”

“What babe?”

“The babe with the power!”

“What power?”

“THE POWER TO MELT MEN’S BRAINS WITH IT’S EYES, TO REND THEIR SKIN FROM THEIR BONES WITH NARY A THOUGHT, THE POWER TO LEVEL CITIES WITH A BLINK, TOO MAKE A CHARNEL HOUSE OF THIS WORLD AND THE NEXT, TO TRAVEL OUT INTO THE STARS AND FURTHER AND TO BURN ANYTHING THAT GETS IN IT’S WAY…THAT POWER!”

“Oh. Well in that case I think you can keep that babe away from me. Nasty thing.”

<ITEM> LA HA BOO HA! It’s a new SILENCE!, the comics podcast with ‘tude to boot, and boots with ‘tude. Gary Lactus and The Beast Must Die bring you their thoughts, their opinions, their hopes, their dreams and they demand that you listen.

<ITEM> Sponsorship? Admin, Earth-Pigs? Self-promotion? Stand-up comedy? Take your pick, treacle, they’re all here

<ITEM> Into the Reviewniverse we go, with a hi-de-hi and a ho-de-ho! Despite The Beast forgetting himself and talking about the Brian Wilson biopic Love & Mercy, the boys do eventually talk about comics, including The Dark Knight: The Last Crusade, Batman no.1, Patsy Walker AKA Hellcat, DC Legends of Tomorrow (with Sugar & Spike), Island, Michael DeForge, Black Widow, Ted McKeever’s Pencil Head and more, oh so much more!

<ITEM> Laughing. About Laughing. And then not.

P.S. COME TO THIS IT WILL BE FUNNYYYYYYY!
