SILENCE! #169

ONLY A PRAWN IN WHITBY

Enjoyable seasonal time to you, dear listener. I hope you’ve had a pleasant nice period of late because this podcast will not add to your pleasure. This is a roaming, windy bit of reportage from a solo Gary Lactus as he goes Christmas shopping and has a bit of an adventure in Rome. Beautiful old Rome, full of really old stuff built in ancient times but most thrillingly, a Metro station named after 80s euro pop mega queen, Spagna!.

So not much comics talk although Gary does find the time to talk about The Twilight Children, Snow Blind, Batman, Grayson, The Ultimates, Newe Roimancer, Amazing Spider-Man, Trees and Head Lopper.

Here it is.

LITTLE FISH BIG FISH, SWIMMING IN THE WATER, COME BACK HERE MAN, GIMME MY DAUGHTER

I am the traveller. I have…travelled.

Travelled far.

Out into the rocky, jagged cobalt blue terrain of Ferronar, where the sky-narwhals drift by like bloated rain clouds, the luminous krill-spore on their skin igniting their blubbery hides in a neon lightshow, fragmentary fire in the sky. Through the time-wastes of Norgg, where I saw my life spiral out in front and behind me, a chrysalis of confinement. My infant mewl and death cry joined each other in a note of pure harmony, ringing in my ears. The destiny web. Further now, further into the Unknown Territories where time becomes a fragile, lacy thing buffeted by the storms of Un-life, where celestial bodies of unimagined scale frolic and twist together in the heavens, while the Silent Wind blasts the landscape below, a mosaic of broken lands beyond belief. Further..further on…until.

A door. Before me, a door.

I knock.

Yeah mate?

“I have…your…pizza”

Yeah mate, you should’ve been here an hour and a half ago, yeah? Thing’s probably fuckin’ cold now anyway. Take it back mate, not interested. Fuckin’ clown. Do one.”
