Hello there, Gary Lactus here. Welcome to the recorded scraps of our weekend at Thought Bubble 2013. We had a lovely time, the highlight of which was probably our SILENCE! LIVE! special talk time with Kieron Gillen, Al Ewing, Brandon Graham, Ales Kot and Stan Lee. The Beast Must Die and I were proper touched by the amount of warm, responsive bodies that came to watch our hideous shambles. Those of you who were actually there are particularly blessed as the recording didn’t come out too well I’m afraid. I have done my best to give you the best possible audio representation here but malfunctioning mics and a reverberant room mean that you may have trouble hearing all of it. Consider it a collector’s item for SILENCE! completists. There’s still some magic moments to be had here. There’s pictures in the gallery below too.

Four days later I still feel broken but happy. CHEERS EVERYONE!

    Stan looks well

  2. Illogical Volume Says:

    You wouldn’t say that if you’d had to clean him up before and after the show! I swear that durty auld fucker does it on purpose. #adorable

  3. Gary Lactus Says:

    Just realised I completely failed to make any sort of Who Live At Leeds joke.

  4. Gary Lactus Says:

    Not even privately to Andrew Hickey. On the Sunday I could’ve said, “Hey Andrew! Did you you enjoy your Who Live At Leeds last night?” and he would’ve loved it and we would have laughed and it would’ve been brilliant. Don’t think I’ve ever regretted anything this much ever.

  5. Shaky Ghosts and Convention Heights | Movable Symbol Comics Says:

    [...] The best thing that springs to mind right now, is to point to the most recent episode of the Silence! podcast, where I can be heard jokingly threatening ritualistic violence against a certain comic [...]

    Saddened to hear you’ve not been getting your fair share of hate mail. Hasn’t anyone even pointed out that your spaceship (in space) smells of alien poo?

  7. Gary Lactus Says:

    How dare you! Get your facts straight, Tam! It’s human poo, not alien poo!
