SILENCE! #307

January 21st, 2023

A book is a dream you can hold in your hands
Music is a dream that can be played by bands
Dinner is a dream that goes in your tummy
Drugs are a dream that makes you feel funny
Chickens are a dream that likes to lay eggs
Trousers are a dream that covers your legs
Drawers are a dream you can put things in
Norwich is a dream quite close to Kings Lynn

Here’s a bit of fun. The Beast Must Die has run off the the edge of the planet and is falling through space for all eternity (for charity) so Gary Lactus is joined by Douglas Noble and Tom Oldham, the two halves of Dark And Golden. It is not established which one of them is Dark and which is Golden. What ensues is fun and interesting until Tom’s audio stops recording for some reason so towards the end, dear listener, the podcast decays into judiciously edited scraps before rotting away entirely.

During the 1 hr 33 mins of this podcast we speak of Breakdown Press, Baby, It May Never Happen, Angouleme, Croix-Noire, 2000AD Extreme Editions, Peter Milligan’s The Dead, Meltdown Man, Rainbow Swelling, Billionaire Island: Cult Of Dogs, Catwoman: Lonely City, Power Comics, The Butterfly House, Clair Napier’s The Magic Necklace, Cowboy Picture Library 410 – Buck Jones The Hunter and more.

SILENCE! #Mark Stafford

August 29th, 2022

You wanna know about Mark Stafford, almost from birth until now? He’s the sort of guy that people say things like ”Mark Stafford is the greatest artist you’ve never heard of” about. Press play to hear Mark Stafford talk to a completely naked Gary Lactus about Ronald Searle, Empusa, The Comic Creators Guild, Brian Talbot, Cherubs, The Man Who Laughs, David Hine, Liphook, the strange tale of Magdalena Solis, The Bad Bad Place, Mark’s Emerald Helicopter of Success, the upcoming Salmonella Smorgasbord and why oh why can’t we all just call comic books and graphic novels Irresponsible Pictures instead. This is THE podcast for all of your Mark Stafford needs.

OVER MY SHOULDER, OLDER AND OLDER, THAT’S WHAT I TOLD YA, OVER AND OVER

Well, well, well if it isn’t Gary Lactus and The Beast Must Die crawling back on their knees, begging forgiveness for missing a week of the world’s otherwise most reliable podcast.  Angry hoards of ex listeners have verbally and physically assaulted the punctual pair, blaming them for all manner of important, missed appointments because they set their watches to SILENCE!’s famous regularity.

Thankfully, that’s all over now and the two men are back to perform that most incredible feat, talking about stuff.  Stuff like Small Press Day at Gosh, and people like Sean Azzopardi, Molly Stocks, Mark Stafford, Douglas Noble and Fraser Geesin and Dan Cox’s comic, Jeff.

Gareth Hopkinskickstarter, Explosive Sweet Freezer Razors gets a shout too.

Then it’s off to The Reviewniverse, with Counterfeit Girl, Geezer, John’s Worth and Marvel’s adaptation of Dune

Wrapping up, The Beast has watched The Boys and She Hulk and Gary has been listening to The Blindboy Podcast

There’s probably more that I’ve forgotten but you can find out what that is by listening… NOW!

I CAN THINK OF NO WHERE I WOULD RATHER BE, READING MORNING PAPERS, DRINKING MORNING TEA

No blurb this week as we’re all swarming around the centre of the hive, desperately hoping to mate with the Queen.

As we all know, some weeks are longer than other weeks and it really has been a particularly long week since last week’s episode.  Despite this and even though The Beast Must Die has covid we still managed a pod like particularly brave soldiers.

Soldier Gary Lactus sliced his thumb quite badly but still managed to get to Who Am I Now, the exhibition of paintings by Glyn Dillon.

Soldier The Beast Must Die saw Doctor Strange: Marble Madness!. He didn’t like it and on the podcast he doesn’t like it for a long time. Delicious!

Let’s go now to Reviewniverse, with Captain Britain, Light Brigade, Statics and Omege The Unknown of course.

Seeing us out it’s a reckymend of Paul O’Connell and Rhys Wooten‘s No Garnish podcast and The Beast Must Die’s experience at Steve Walsh’s Memorial.

Farewell, friends.
