"DISTURBING AND TROUBLING ON MANY LEVELS" - REC.ARTS.COMICS.DC.UNIVERSE

i've listened to every episode of podcast x. i don't know what that means.i listened to this episode while i was on the bus. Every once in a while i had to remind myself that i was crowded next to a bunch of strangers while team X flooded my ear* with vivid descriptions of demonic rape.* by the way, this episode only played in one channel.i think i listen to Podcast X for the same reason i listen to CGS. Most comics are so mindnumbingly stupid that i prefer to have them described to me rather than suffer actually reading them. It's a toss-up whether it's more entertaining to hear you guys mock them into submission or to hear the CGS guys slurp up whatever comic jism is aimed their way.- andrew.
And I'm back!(Kind of like HorrotiCastic Magic!)This comic was by far Starhawk's recent favorite. Boy; Starhawk so much fun reviewing this comic, that it momentarily left Starhawk pontificatiously speechless. What better praise can be cast upon a comic that is so mind-numbingly opposed to both morality and convention. Starhawk says: none.Thanks for the comment, Andrew; Starhawk is assuming you must've been trying to avoid going into stitches of laughter; perhaps next time we will simply use the Power of Podon to take over your mind and have you scream at the top of your lungs: "Prepare your asses, you Vixens!" - a battle cry that I am sure all of the daily commuters, can appreciate. Plus, it's always good to know that we are on a Podcast listener's Favorites list.Oh, and let us not forget the appendage (no pun intended) of the Man-Thing review at the end of this podcast; now that was "poke me with a fork, I am definitely done" kind of funny. Kudos to Trenchcoat Mafia for not letting that little gem get lost on the cutting room floor.However, there is one thing that did leave Starhawk quite offended, didn't it? How could Trenchcoat Mafia NOT have named this podcast HorrotiCastX? We'll just have to see about changing the name for the archive's sake. Perhaps I can get a petition going here...So, until we all chant profanely again...-Starhawk.missing.Satan.already
Andrew, thanks for commenting; it's good to know that the download/subscriber numbers we get aren't just some kind of computer glitch and there really are people out there listening.Starhawk, don't mourn for Satan just yet; you can expect a Tribute to Satan Month coda of sorts next week - courtesy of myself, Vixen and (your favorite victim) Wicked Truth...
How about Auto-ErotiCast?I know for a fact that T.M. has a fear of the letter H, just as I have disdain for the letters U and B.The "Count" was especially funny... and I will never let my kids watch Sesame Street again.PS what ever happened to Wholesome?-Trekkie.Mctrekkie.blogspot.com
"Wholesome" is sadly reserved for other podcasts -- insofar as wholesome is sad.As for PCX, our moto (leaking over beyond October (bwa ha ha ha)) is: "profanely disturbing: all of the time"..Starhawk.mourning.theLossOf.wholesome.already
Okay, I'm sorry I'm late, but I forgot that I never listened to the podcast. Anyhoo, that comic was totally horrid. I am a little surprised that Trenchcoat found it so abhorrent, since he tends to be the deviant little fiend in most other podcasts. Still, a good job. Except for you, Starhawk. You should be ashamed of yourself.
Unfortunately, Starhawk and the concept of shame aren't exactly on speaking terms.
Starhawk totally disagrees with TCM, doesn't he? Shame and Starhawk go way back; for instance: Starhawk espouses that it's a shame that TCM gave such a tepid reception to what Charles so accurately describes as the comic which embodies the epitome of everything TCM has been subtly pedling since before this podcast ever originated.Oh, but how the mirror must reflect so negatively the visage of the horrifying demon within... And thus it falls to Starhawk to attempt to speak for the Demons with TCM - and perhaps within ALL mortal men. Now, is that a crime?OTOH: Charles, waddaya say? Would you like to add your vote to Starhawk's petition? This podcast need be titled "HorrotiCastX"!-Starhawk.pondering.what.needs.pondering
yes, I agree with you, Starhawk, this episode should be called HorrotiCastX.Btw, props to TCM for the Count reference. I did it myself when I was listening to Starhawk count the babies. Btw, I disagree with you guys: The artwork (well, the panel I've seen) isn't that great. Tho it's sort of remeniscent of a manga I read recently, if only I could dredge it out of my memory. I'll see if I can find it, and upload a scan of it to flickr later on. If I do, I'll post it here.
Okay, it's somewhat remeniscent of this art style:http://www.flickr.com/photos/88985581@N00/293423822/BTW, this is from a volume of Reiko the zombie shop, which I've recomended before.
Also: It's amazing that fantagraphics can put out this comic, AND The complete Peanuts.
If only they'd fold Eros into Fanta proper; just imagine The Complete Erotic Peanuts..."Oh, Snoopy!"
BTW folks, re: my 11/2 post that "...you can expect a Tribute to Satan Month coda of sorts next week..." - turns out I actually meant, er, next week. Stay tuned!
Sadly, the posted image for this podcast is not fully representative of the HorrotiCastic genius, intricacy and detail of the many splendid - nay, profane - pages of this book; however, Starhawk does see the similarities of the self-mutilating fanatisism of the females betweenst these two illustrations.In continuation of the shameful theme of this side of the posting thread: Shame on you, Charles for having read (and retained) these mutually exclusive, yet bizarrely similar images into your phyche.But thank thee(none-the-less) for adding your vote to Starhawk's petition. Now do you see, TCM: Surely you won't disappoint Starhawk, MC Trekkie (who promised to support the petition, he's just running a little slow), AND Charles - our oft reported #1 FAN?Now... about that glassesed little girl with the slash marks in her head...-Starhawk.slash.happy.asAlways
At this point I vote to rename the damn thing "Episode 29: The PenduringPodcast" I mean- only ep 15 was Headlined this long, and THAT was my swan song. My Blog's Smug-o-tron 3000(tm) is registering many, many opinions:1)4 out of 5 Dentists surveyed prefer Horriticast 'cause is sounds like "erotic" and sex sells.2)One woman wrote in and mentioned that when SHE cut open her breasts to turn them into vaginas, she used the horizontal slice, rather than the vertical gash, as is depicted here (on the main page).3)A random entry, from one who only identified himself as "bambi_luvs_power_toppy"registered his wish for episode 29 to be called "Wean away, my lonesome cowboy heartache"4)The Smug-o-Tron itself, in a pique of illogic, actually violated its prime directive and skewed the results of our listener poll by submitting its own entry: "Episode 29: There are no beeps to express my shame and disgust"For Actual Poll results this week,go to:http://mctrekkie.blogspot.comfresh and wholesome entries daily.
Perduring, smart ass.ps-Just for that I'm voting with StarHawk. (even though he couldn't part with a $1.98 for a b-day card)On StarHawk's Headstone, 2056 - Yes, you CAN take it with you.
Why must Starhawk leave Earth in 2056? - Oh, that's right - The world ends in that year. Did Starhawk cause that? Should Starhawk come back?Well, prepare your asses for Starhawk's early pending departure; Starhawk was sure that Starhawk would hang around with you mere mortals forever.-Starhawk.missing.Starhawk.alreadyP.S.Caskets? Cards? Money? - Did Starhawk have a birhtday?
I predict that, like The Ancient One, Starhawk will simply become "one with the universe"; after which of course, he'll use his newfound omniscience to count every boob that has ever existed.
Dear TCM,for a mortal, Starhawk grants you that you have some novel ideas. :-)Unfortunately, you have missed a very poignant point: Starhawk is already one with the universe, and Starhawk already uses his powers primarily for the purpose of counting "boobs". Starhawk has also been known to use Starhawk's "cosmic power of gawking" to stare at breasts, knockers, hooters, mellons, apples, tits and titties.Starhawk prefers them ripe and naked; cooked, but not burned, by the sun. Nipples aglisten with a little honeyed glaze.And now that you have counter-balanced Trekkie's "blog based assasination attempt", Starhawk assures all that Starhawk shall indeed live forever!-Starhawk.riddled.with.immortal.angst
Assassination? Nope. I assume that with all the Birthday/Holiday money you'll have saved by then, you'll just pay someone to die FOR you in 2056.Sadly, I actually do see something like that happening in our dystopian future by way of buying a poor person's organs, etc.Max Headroom world, here we come.returning to the thread:This was a most tasteless and enjoyable episode, boys.
PCX: The Classics Tour.1st appearance of Wicked Bastard.It is necrophilia, saying its not necrophilia and/or saying it's not illegal in any state doesn't stop it from being sex with a corpse. The corpse can be moving but if its dead it is necrophilia. This just sounds like a fun comic.1st praise of Steve Gerber.Did you do the Howard the Duck-vampire cow episode, yet? Heh, "Comic Jism". Good one, Andrew.For a more adult version of Peanuts, I again recommend Weapon Brown. His tagline should be, "Out to rape your childhood Sunday funnies."
