"DISTURBING AND TROUBLING ON MANY LEVELS" - REC.ARTS.COMICS.DC.UNIVERSE
posted by T Mafia at 11:49 AM
HIP HOP HOORAY! The new episode of Podcast X is on the stands, just as I'm about finished listening to the whole back catalogue. I just discovered this show about a week ago and I enjoy it. This is one of the only shows that recaps old and new comics page by page, concentrating on one issue per episode, and using the comic as a platform for raunchy commentary or juvenile hijinx. I hate it when y'all try to put the kabosh on "tangents". You'd BETTER go off on tangents, otherwise, what's the point of just reading the comic straight through without commentary? I can read the comic for myself. I want your input on the comic AND your thought about other shit. I've only listened to a couple of episodes of Comic Book Haters when they first started, back when they did a review of Marvel Zombies and the Hulk issue in which he was sent into space. Their reviews sucked and I stopped listening after two tries. They certainly were "haters". I felt no love of knowledge of comics from them. As immature and sophomoric as you guys attempt to be, you are funny and Trenchcoat does know his shit. I must say I am a fan of the Trenchcoat/StarHawk and Trenchcoat/Trekkie shows, the most in that order. Though I do enjoy the Wicked Strawberries and Vixens. Where'd you get all these black people, anyway? Finally, a different POV besides the mostly indistinguisdhable geeky white male voices that litter all the other shows. Comicbookqueers, this show and a few others are a breath of fresh air. About the geeky white male comment: Don't get me wrong, I like MC Trekkie alot and Trenchcoat is the show's anchor. (I am assuming they are white) Trench says things about popular comics that no one else has said, but that I've thought about. I, too, had a problem with Dr. Strange saying "um" in Illuminati. (Which I recapped some months ago but haven't posted yet) I love the little bits of comic knowledge. I've just been reading some old Star Brand I picked up in the quarter bin and wondered why Byrne ruined the series' main character and made him a deadbeat dad and mass murderer. Now I know why. I hadn't known about Byrne's beef with Shooter. But, Trench...I can do without the blasemphemous remarks and praising of Satan, though.I do a podcast that focuses on one comic each episode, too. As a matter of fact, I've been doing it for a couple of months. I thought I was the only on who did this format. I'm spreading the word about PX on my show. My show is solo, but, thanks to you I may try to get a couple of snarky assholes to rip the comics (figuratively) with me. It sounds more fun that way.Trench, I'm trying to find Archie meets Punisher for my show...Is that something that you think you'd like to do for PX? Another beauty I've found recently in the quarterbins is "Return of the SuperPimps". I'd love you all to take a shot at that.Curse you (Damballah) for doing Batman #617 and NextWAVE #2, because i was going recap them, (I just found them in the quarterbin) but you got to it first, I can't top what you guys did.I'm off to see Apacolypto. I'll be listening to The "wookie" episode 14 and this new marvel zombie episode on my way there.
Another listener heard from (this is starting to get downright scary)! But no, really, thanks for the support (especially on the issue of tangents, as I'm usually the biggest perpetrator of those).To honor the cease-fire (I'd hesitate to call it an actual "truce") between ourselves and CBH, I'll refrain from commenting on their show this time around. Besides, the last time I did, I somehow made an enemy of Comic Geek Speak/Peter Rios (and I'm still trying to figure out exactly how that happened).I know Starhawk will be thrilled to hear that someone out there actually prefers his episodes to the other hosts'. Of course, feeding The First Son of PODON's ego may not be entirely wise...As far as blaspheming xtianity, I agree that at this point, I probably owe all the world's other religions equal "bashing time". In my defense, I was about to eviscerate Islam in #22 before someone (cough *Starhawk* cough) brought up his fear of violent retribution!Also, I'd like to point out that unlike the Muslims, when I threaten "evisceration", I mean it metaphorically.Feel free to give the link to your own show here (even though Trekkie will undoubtedly chastise me for allowing more "advertising" in the comments), which I'm interested in checking out myself. I can confirm that yes, it is an experience doing a show with, as you say, "snarky assholes" (Vixen and Wicked, I think Tim's talking about you two...) I actually wanted to review the Punisher/Archie comic! Someone (cough *Trekkie* cough) objected to the idea...!BTW, if you really can't find that particular comic, it's highly available via DC++ (and remember, kids, it's not "stealing", it's file sharing!)Feel free to review whatever you like! I'm still kicking myself that we never did our Lost Girls episode, just because CBH posted their own review of it a mere two days before Starhawk and I were set to record our own take on the comic.Keep listening, and I can promise many more attempts on our part at being immature and sophomoric, not to mention tangents aplenty...Excelsior!
I'll do the honors-Is this the same Timmy Thoom of Comic Book Noise?And Trencho- I'll give props/plugs to ANYONE who doesn't end their message with Excelsior!I am glad that more and more folks are getting the vibe of the PodCast- that it was (and is) always about MORE than the comic itself... it's about the writer, the artist, the industry, and the zeitgeist of the time(s) the comic was penned.All hail "The Galactus of Comics Continuity and Industry Info" - Trenchcoat Mafia.Oh, and we didn't pretend to be immature and sophomoric, we were immature and sophomoric. And Starhawk? A Force of Nature.
Thank you...thank you...THANK YOU, TIMMY THOOM! for validating our tangents. And, I was so afraid that no one else would understnad our "brilliance" (smile). Actually, Trenchcoat does know quite a few cool black people (yes, of which I am one--we are planning on having many babies, thus creating the "Ebony and Ivory" united world---smile). Keep listening and thanks for the support. Look for plenty more tangents in the future!
And, before anyone else comments--I admit to my misspelling of "understand".....as Trenchie would say, I'm just a girl..please forgive me.....
I grant that you are but a mere female, yet how can I ever forgive you for anything...now that I know you've apparently been lying to me about being on birth control?! Now I see why Starhawk is so obsessed with anal sex...
What in the world does Birth control have to do with the Podcast?Vixen is right on the money- More variety is a good thing!
...and so, true to form, speaks the foremost opponent of our many "tangents"...
Trench: Peter Rios doesn't like you because of something you said about CBH? I would've thought he would've hated you a long time ago for your dis against Geek Speak in your "Civil War Recap".Yes, MC Trekkie...I am Tim of the THOOM! podcast on the Comic Book Noise/Deliberate Noise Network. (The main show is Derek Coward's briliant CBN.) Vixen, I just listened to the Gothcast today. I liked you before. But after hearing you sing the theme of "Alice" sitcom, I love you. (Though you've dated yourself.)
I never thought the CGS crew would actually listen to a show of our nature in the first place to even have heard me express my actual "on-air" remarks, but on the comments page here for that particular episode, I made an obviously (?) facetious statement that I assumed they'd come across and apparently taken seriously (I'd direct you to the post I'm referring to on their site in which Rios accused me of having "trashed" them, but those champions of free expression have deleted that entire thread).The post (from the comments here for #20) that (possibly) incurred the Wrath of Rios:"As you may have gathered from Trekkie's remarks on the matter, a 'cease-fire' has been declared in the battle with CBH. Given this, I'd just like to follow up what I said in #20 and note that Comic Geek Speak sucks more than a room filled with ten-dollar crack whores."Hence my saying that even referencing the Podcast X/Comic Book Haters War apparently stirs up all sorts of bad karma. But hey, maybe they did hear me express my annoyance at Deemer's Civil War appearance; I still say I deserve an on-panel cameo more than he does! Hell, we're the ones who praised the book (in my defense, #4 & #5 haven't thrilled me) when nearly every other comics podcast has been trashing it from day one!!Vixen's rendition of the Alice theme is definitely her shining moment. I'm determined to get her to sing on the show again, if for no other reason than to annoy Trekkie and Starhawk, who share a marked lack of appreciation for her fine vocal stylings.THOOM (née Tim's Quarter Bin) is definitely one of the better comics podcasts; I've listened to almost a dozen episodes over the past few days, and can assure anyone out there who enjoys Podcast X (and if you don't, why are you here?!) that you'll likely dig THOOM.In fact, y'know what? I command you all to check out Tim's show athttp://www.comicbooknoise.com/?cat=11 andhttp://www.comicbooknoise.com/?cat=18
Trencho- are you being positive?Did someone change your meds?Are you having a baby?Vixen's positive energy is clearly more efficatious than was my own.It's like the Podcast is being cleansed by Cosmo-Vixen DNAStarhawk: When you two idiots finally GOT AROUND TO REVIEWING the Comic, I found a lot to like with this review.When I read this ish (and keep in mind I read all the Ultimate FF (ugh) leading up to this... I thought yeah. The ending... um, er, uh- yeah.YUCK!Just because you CAN do a thing, doesn't mean you SHOULD do a thing, (I'm wagging my finger at YOU Kirkman).FYIThere will be a prequel to this ish, and a tie in With Army of Darkness. Bruce Cambell must be rolling in the grave that is his current career.Nice review- although Starhawk, if you keep creating all these "features" out of the ether, you may want to publish a playbook (or write a blog!) A Starhawk Blog (Boobs, Brains and brawn!) would be like, TOO COOL.
I'd like to respond to Starhawk's little rant about girls and the podcast.Before that though I'd like to vocalize that I was HIGHLY disapointed that I wasn't mentioned along with Andrew and Charles. I've listened to every single episode of Podcast X, I wait with great anticipation for every new show to be made. I INSIST that I am the #1 fan of Podcast X. I understand completely why I wasn't mentioned though, since I've only posted once or twice on the blog and that's obviously the right way to be noticed.Back to my first point. I'm a female fan, I'm cool, a bad ass, I love crude humor. I'd just like to make sure Starhawk and Trenchcoat notice me, any chance to prove Starhawk right is worth a bit of my time.So to sum up: The next 'Boon to the Fans' better include me, because I'm a girl.
Kid Mission, accomplished!The alleged presence of a female listener in our pod base does indeed garner the attention of the First Son of Podon and the Trenchcoat Mafiaite.Surely, Starhawk will have to peruse the previous blog postings and determine if the kid Mission is indeed telling the truth. Assuming however that she is, the Starhawk does deign to give her the boon of being vigilant not to overlook her presence in future shout outs to our listeners.However, KM did seem to miss one of the qualifications for being so bold as to request the attention of the hosts a PodcastX: where is thy proof that thou art not a lesbian?So, based on careful deliberation with the Trenchcoat Mafia, Starhawk grants you this opportunity to prove that you are indeed fully female, naked and lustful: please forward as a photo of yourself ripping your skin off while performing profane sexual acts. If, just by chance you are under the age of 17, please send the photo only to Trenchcoat Mafia.Welcome to the discussion, Kid Mission. We look forward to keeping you happily unoffended in many podcasts to come (and of course, this being PodcastX, all puns are intended).-- Starhawk.missing.kidMissions.anus.already
Don't worry, I'm of age (19 long and lean). I'm not sure how a girl would go about proving she's not a saphic creature besides a lengthy session of Starhawk cock-worship. Since we are so sadly seperated by cyber-space this isn't possible so maybe you can just take my word for it?Also I'd like very much to keep my skin on. I'm really sorry to let you down Starhawk.
Hm. 'hawk never used to have this mania about flaying the skin from his sexual conquests/victims; I suppose I should've known that exposing him to Elizabeth Bathory wasn't the best idea.
Ah, the Mission continues.And what blasphemy is this - the truncation of the sacred name of StarhawK?Starhawk laughs and laughs at TCM's subtle insults. And what is this neophytism that Kid Mission should not be interested in the PCX-ianic pleasures of Skinless Vampiric Sex!? Indeed, TCM was well served to have introduced such obscene pleasures to the masses of our listeners. It is unfortunate that this Cyber-Space thing should hinder Starhawk's indulgences. But more troubling than that is this: Where the hell is the Wicked Truth when you need her? (because after all, Starhawk is starting to wonder what KM is wearing, and how her fashion sense is).Well, enough of the bedevilments of this allegedly non-Sapphosian female! Bahh! Starhawk returns now to Starhawk's ponderings of what Starhawk shall do for tomorrow night...- Starhawk.ogling.the.possibilities
Hey everybody....Wow, so much hs been said in such little time! Vixen is very, very happy. Nice to hear from you, Kid Mission...perhaps you, me and Wicked Truth could, like, TOTALLY take over Podcast X! (Just kidding, guys--Trenchie doesn't like me getting "out of pocket"). I also want to give another shout-out to Timmy Thoom for his compliment on my rendition of the "Alice" theme. I plan on recording an album of "Vixen Sings the Hits", of course produced by Trenchie! I love you just cuz you gave me my props! Also, thanks to MC Trekkie for the blog comment on my blog....I hope everyone gets a kick (and hey, even a grunt) from reading it...the link to my blog is on the Podcast X page. As for you, Starhawk, I speak for the Wicked one when I say she chooses to stay undercover these days. As she's said before, you must earn the right to be in her presence....and since you keep mentioning anal rape, I wonder if you may have offended all of our feminine "sensibilities" (heh heh). As for me, I will be "preparing my ass" if only to guard it from unwanted attacks....and I think you should ask my baby daddy for permission, anyway (smile)......
Mortals. Rapists. Misconceptions. Bahhh!Starhawk challenges any of you to find an accurate quote where Starhawk actually proposed, condoned or encouraged anal rape.What Starhawk stated was "Prepare Your Asses, [you] Vixen[s]" which is a fully proper declaration that salts and jellies should be gathered in preparation for a FULLY CONSENTIENT anal encounter.Starhawk has been amused by [your excessively mortal] squirming reactions - but alas, just because [you mortals] are paranoid about rape (anal or otherwise) does not mean that the sexually adventurous Starhawk is a rapist, forceful deflowerrer, or other defiler of the unevolved or sexual neophyte. Neither is Starhawk a sadist or a masochist.So, Starhawk shall try this again; nice and slow, (and as an homage to WT & V) in Starhawk's best Komandi impersonation: "Prepare your asses, Vixens!" - any takers?- Starhawk.amusedBy.ThePresumptionsOf.Humans
'Hawkie-I don't know whether to be amused... or frightened psst... it's age 18!
That is correct, M.C. Trekilater - at least in some parts of some countries; -- but up here in PodCastX, we got jokes! C? *snicker*.As to any of you 17 year olds who are truly interested in becoming initiates of the demi-gods and goddesses of PodCastX, we got a waiting list, too. :-PAnd thou art wise to be afraid, oh Trekbutt; for perhaps you are not so agile as to escape the Wicked Truth of your own evil sexual desires.- Starhawk.exploring.theAegeanIsle.ofLesbos
Star peacock, I note your parading around here like the peacock of the walk, (and your younger AC/DC female alter ego, Kid Mission, is not helping matters) Timmy, please don't encourage him... To think that Starhawk needs more confidence is to think that bacon needs a deep fryer.Keep it up Starhawk, and I just might have to come back to the Mic, and SERVE you with some real old school comics commentary... and NO ONE wants that!Trekkie.threatening.return.of.Papa.Jambo.
Starhawk said..."Starhawk challenges any of you to find an accurate quote where Starhawk actually proposed, condoned or encouraged anal rape."Ahem... X-Podcasters and X-Listeners: Let me take you back to Episode 27- Voulez Voodoo, where out intrepid hosts aren't even ten seconds into the show proper. We have the following dialogue:TRENCH: "Ya know we're always picking on Wicked Truth, we never pick on Vixen."STARHAWK: "Anal rape."TRENCH: "Are you suggesting anal rape as far as Vixen is concerned?"STARHAWK: "Yes. She needs it. Badly."That sounds like a proposal and an endorsement.
Timmy Thoom!: I'm impressed you could so accurately transcribe that, given the "state of the art" recording equipment 'hawk insisted on using in the Voodoo ep. Moving on, I'd just like to say... Starhawk: Ha! Busted! Vixen: On the other hand, in the Hawkster's defense, I actually agree that you need to be anally raped.Badly.But only after, as we've all been discussing (negotiating?), your ass has been properly "prepared".Trekkie: As far as I know, Starhawk is not Kid Mission (if that is indeed what you're implying).Of course, as long as we're throwing conspiracy theories out there, am I the only one who's noticed that Kid started posting the very episode after Charles stopped? Hmm...
You should Infer NOTHING from my statement- I think what I meant was, IF StarPeacock was 19 and if he were a female, he would have written exactly that post. Bravo TimmyThoom! for keeping tabs on the rear_raping_rantings.
"...would have written exactly that post..."?I think not.Of all people, if the Hawkmeister had the misfortune to have been born a member of the weaker sex, you just know that "she" would be thoroughly (and no doubt, enthusiastically) lesbian!
Starhawk is flabbergasted! Not so much at some of the things that come out of Starhawk's mouth (after all, that is all Trenchcoat Mafia's fault), but at the fact that the Tim of the THOOM has indeed busted the Starhawk. Kudos, Timmy Thoom. Surely, a mere mortal, thou art not!Hence, Starhawk shall appologize to our female casters and listening audience: Starhawk appologizes for Trenchcoat Mafia not having edited that horrid "proposal [and] endorsement" out. :-PKisses to Vixen. Love to Wicked Truth. An invitation to anal penetration to everybody else - oh, calm down you gay and gay bashing bastards.As to the verisimilitude of some lucky bastard's plaything, Kid Mission, I've got two words for her that can penetrate all of this paranoia bullshit - and this being PCX, KM knows that all puns truly are intended: Anal Rape.'nuff Said.- Starhawk.caught.channelling.Trenchcoat.MafiaP.S.And of course, TCM is correct. Were Starhawk an inhabitant of the Aegean Isle of Lesbos, they would have to kick Alita's tongue wielding lesbo raping anal fixated ass straight off the island!Bahhh!
StarPeacock-Man your word of the day program is getting quite the workout.Re:VixenMaybe Trencho, you can create a contest... trekkie.appalled.amused.ashamed
If Starhawk got turned into a chick by some force of Marvel-magic she'd no doubt be a tremendous whore for every sex and species.If anyone wants to contact me outside of this very slow-moving blog comment system they can on either AIM (sn: samaslave) or MSN (firstname.lastname@example.org)Now I'm gonna be biting my nails hoping and waiting for the glorious moment when I am electronically visited by The First Son of PodonTrekkie and Trenchcoat or the girls are welcome too, I guess
A more inviting and salacious offer having not recently been so tendered so tenderly.As to the predictable (he he, he said 'dic') reactions of my co-hosts TCM and MCT: Yes, Starhawk knows that you fully expect Starhawk's head to expand and explode; pero, exploding heads (and of course, this being PCX...) is what the Tri-Cock is allegedly all about. ;-)Or, in the parlance of Starhawk's alternate peergroups: Don't hate the Starhawk; hate the game!- Starhawk.peacocking.gloating.isTheUniverseLargeEnoughToHoldThisMuchEgo
Okaaayyyyy......Y'all are scaring the shit out of me! First, may I say to Timmy Thoom....You are my hero!!! Yes, Starhawk did in fact threaten me w/anal rape....but since he has blown kisses to me, I guess I can forgive him. But, Trenchie, how dare you suggest that I, your future baby mama, be treated so viciously? I see I'll have to use my whips and chains in a verrry uncomfortable manner on you! As for Kid Mission: Hmm, so you "guess" the girls can come visit your site, huh? Let it be known that we do not take too kindly to other chicks trying to take our men...Vixen doesn't share! Oh, wait...you said Starhawk, right? Well...okay, he's the exception...do with him what you will...
Starman, All I'm sayin' is that you and your Alter ego should get a room.Vixen, looks like you and your baby daddy already got a room.Timmy, is there this much talk of anal rape in your podcast room?Kid Mission/Samaslave I am indeed frightened (yet intrigued) by your room.
MC Trekkie: Starhawk cannot resist commenting on the amout of room you have given to your renumerations. Starhawk believes there is room for more. :-POTOH, Starhawk cannot resist peacocking that this [pod]casting has the greatest number of comments in the entire blog; seconded only by another great Starhawk/Trenchcoat Mafia presentation: episode 29 - HorrortiCastX! Who but Starhawk could have known that zombies could inspire so much discussion? - oh, wait; none of this discussion has anything to do with zombies!That being said, is it wrong [for Starhawk] not to care?Thank thee Vixen for excepting Starhawk's apology. Please keep in mind that if Big Papa Trenchie ever decides to disappoint you, you're always welcome to consentually "prepare your anus, you vixen."Possibly the only thing that could make this more perfect would be a special cameo guest appearance to the blog by the cooly observing She-Queen of the PCX universe, Wicked Truth. Is that subtle enough?- Starhawk.exhaustedBy.theEgo.expansions
Okay, I'm not saying Wicked Truth is a prima donna, but-- Oh, wait, that's exactly what I'm saying!In other words, don't hold your breath waiting for the original podcast diva herself to "grace" us with her postings...That said, I think Vixen (the Marcy to Wicked's Peppermint Patty) has been picking up WT's slack quite adequately.
Completely by mistake, in another forum, I referred to the womenfolk on the Podcast collectively as "Wixen" I'll be surprised if they let you get away with the Peppermint Patty/Marcie thing though, Sir.-trekkiehttp://mctrekkie.blogspot.comIt's Sci-Fi Comics extravaganza week!
You bet your sweet ass I'm responding to that crack!!! First, let me say in Marcie's defense that she was a cool chick and a total babe ahead of her time. But, Vixen and the Wicked one are two separate entities and neither follows the other. Trenchie, you've been showing your ass lately! I may have to take Starhawk up on his offer--dare I say, he's being more of a gentleman than you are (gasp!) Perhaps my affections are misplaced....BTW, to Starhawk and Trekkie, thanks for commenting on my blog. I haven't viewed it yet, but I'm sure I'll be quite entertained by the responses....
V, you just reminded me of that bit Stern always plays:"Karloff? Sidekick?! Fuck you!!!" Well, at least you're already in the podcast equivalent of an Ed Wood movie...
Thanks for the shout out in this episode, guys. I appreciate it. Sorry it took so long for me comment, I sort of got derailed by the previous episode, and I haven't been listening for a while. I frankly thought the whole Marvel Zombie series was sort of lackluster, and the end was kind of....meh.
PCX: The Classics Tour.1st appearance of Dr Brain and Dr Put-Down-That-Naked-Little-Girl.Trenchcoat truths, Star Wisdoms, boons to the listeners, that never popped up again.What did you think of the new "V" series?See I think this would have been a better series if it was more like the covers. It gave the impression that it was much like a normal Marvel Universe, just that everyone was a zombie, supers and normals. I think it would've had been better if it was zombies trying to live their regular human lives, plus there would be a few humans who had to hid out, they would had to take out the sniffers or atleast their noses. Maybe led by T'chala or Nick Fury. That they have to wear disguises to go out. That the zombies were intelligent enough to keep some human on farms. Have stores selling cloned meat. Maybe have scientists trying to cure everyone. How does the virus know the difference between a regular human and a superhero? Why are Castle, Ironman, and a few others made into zombies while the main humans aren't? I think Elsewhere started to suck when it became too much of same hero, different time, different place, same villains and same outcome, etc. No wonder it would get boring.I always wondered what happened to Asgard in zombied universes. Guess Thor can't use his hammer but he does know other ways to get to Asgard.Dan Savage suggest that Halloween is straight people's Gay pride day, a day, straight people can be freaky.Is this the 1st mention of Mrs. StarHawk?I just thought that was how the story was suppose to eventually go. You got Star Brand, he makes a mistake, changes the world. Sure Byrne and Shooter had problems but I think it worked better into his character that he would accidentally blow up a city. From the beginning Ken didn't have the imagination for the Star Brand.So what did happen to the Thoom podcast in Comic Book Noise?MCT-Other forum? What other forums do you guys visit?
