I skipped the first half of that review. Sorry Trekkie, it was boring.
Thanks for the link to Mininova, Trenchoat!

Gotta love that unvarnished Truth of the PCX fans!

Actually, that bit was not supposed to be a "podcast" per se.

My original thought was that it would just sit on my blog (under a Spirit comic link)- then we felt- What the hell?! Let's put in on PCX.

Trekkie monotone leads right into "Khan" taking over my bit about 4/5 minutes in... from then on it's KHAN! and T. Mafia all the way.

Trekkie's really not in the thing.

Of course, since I helped recruit you- you've just upped the ante on your own appearance, you know...

Yr welcome, Courtney; I'm always happy to spread the joy of unlimited file sharing.

Also, I'm declaring in advance that your eventual appearance on the show is the official Greatest Thing Ever (just to annoy Trekkie.)

Understandable, this is revolutionary stuff. What other podcast has ever allowed a fan to podcast with them?
There's probably some out there, but I don't know about it so it doesn't count.

Also, New Frontier is better than I thought it would be. It was fun but obviously there's only so much you can fit into a movie from a graphic novel that huge.

While New Frontier had its intense enough moments (like WW siccing those evil peasant women on their innocent rapists), I've been unimpressed with these direct-to-DVD Marvel & DC toons overall.

Ultimate Avengers, for example, made me want to go out in the street and randomly kill people. Okay, granted, most things make me want to go out in the street and randomly kill people...

C'mon Courtney- look at me in the PCX Blog picture there climbing out of the water...

I'm tired, I'm WET- I've been missing for a year- and you STILL expected me to bring my "A" game?

Actually- After 5 minutes, I'm not even IN the thing. There was a method to the madness of making Trekkie THAT dull and phlegmatic.

Courtney is going to guest host on PCX?

As we used to say in the 80's:

I'm so excited, I just can't hide it,
I'm about to lose control and I think I like it.
I'm so excited, I just can't hide it, an I know. I know. I know. I know I want to...I want to.

And maybe Courtney didn't ask me what Podon (or in the classic Eternian spelling Poedon) is. But I know the history of Podon. Wanna hear it? Here it goes:

As hinted at in an earlier episode of PCX, I am a Grayskull disciple, so I know the story of Poedon. It is no coincidence that the mantra for Podon is similar to that of He-Man. ("By the Power of..."")

Podon was a servant of the Royal Family of Eternia. Unbeknownst to anyone, he he was a pedophile. One day, he tried to molest Young Prince Adam. Poedon didn't know the Adam was also He-Man, who promptly called on the power of Grayskull and put a hurting on Poedon. Poedon was then banished to be a custodian to the rank Castle Grayskrull for all Eternity. He died on the toilet of Grayskull's out house, jerking off the kiddie porn holograms. Poor heart couldn't take it.

Poedon is the patron saints of pedophiles and perverts of all kinds. When a pervert or a rapist calls upon the power of Podon, he amasses the physical strength of Woody Allen and Michael Jackson. Which means the average man loses half of his strength.


Before you say "Why did this fool take the time to come up with that story?" Let me say that I've been building on the story since my second to last recording of PCX (six years ago?), hoping to use it some day.

Trekkie: I like that excuse. Okay, everybody; just so you know, any future episodes of PCX that suck...suck on purpose.

Um, yeah.

Tim: Since I don't think Starhawk reads the comments for (or even listens to) any episode that he's not a part of, I may have to tack an on-air reading of your "Secret Origin of PODON" onto 'hawk's next episode. His reaction should be...interesting.

PS It does seem like six years ago, doesn't it? Y'know, I was determined not to laugh out loud at all that, but you got me with "Which means the average man loses half of his strength."

PPS Are you available to give Trekkie lessons in how to be entertaining?

Two cans on a string is entertaining?

Actually, for the record, I encourage the return of Thoom!

Anyone who knows comics and has the ability to challenge Dr. Monkeypants in his own podcast is fine by me.

But, for the love of god - would one of you get a better microphone next time?

Attn: George Takei's Fluffer (a.k.a. Trekkie) - That's pretty bold talk, considering "Khan" really did sound like he was calling in all the way from Laos!

So am I going to be on the next episode, or have you already got another one recorded?

Also, I want to read the origin of Podon on the podcast!

Courtney

Amazingly, there's enough material recorded for at least five shows at this point (which doesn't mean I can't shuffle things around.)

Vixen has been ill (I suspect syphilis), so I haven't even been able to give her the Tank Girl comics I've burned for her to read for the show. Why doesn't she download them herself, you ask? Because she's the last person on Earth who only has useless friggin' dial-up!

Which reminds me: you'll need a program called CDisplay to read these. It's a free program; you just might want to tweak the default settings to suit your own reading-comics-on-a-monitor preferences.

Speaking of free programs, you could record "The Secret Origin of PODON as Discovered by the Intrepid Timmy THOOM!" yourself via Audacity and mail it to us via SendThisFile (man, I just keep trying to clutter up your hard drive, don't I?) or alternately, we could hook up on Skype and I could use the old face-the-microphone-towards-the-computer-speaker recording technique that gives Trekkie such agita.

PS Tim, call it if you want dibs on this as these were, after all, your horrific findings ("story" indeed!)

MC Tribblehead:

How dare you critique the audio on the PCX/THOOM shows? Some of those early trekkie shows were worse audio quality than my guest spots...and you were in the same room as T-Mafia!

T-Mafia:

Whoever wants to read it can. Courtney should even add her own touches. But Trekkie can't. He'll suck the life right out of it.

Sorry, TM- I've just about had it.

(and now I'm late for work)

Thoom-

What the fuck man?

I wasn't criticizing your style- just the fact that T Mafia's skype setup didn't yet have an automated record function. (it does now).

I dare say, Thoom, if it wasn't for those early (VERY, VERY highly rated) efforts of ours- and all the heat I took from the Comic Book Haters for even starting a similar show with T Mafia in the first place- you wouldn't actually have the PCX auxiliary podcast platform/venue for your work.

A little grace and decorum, please.

Tim

I feel bad for whatever happened you last year, but why you have to be an ass here is beyond me.

Trust me, whatever you went through was NOTHING compared to pulling the plug on a parent nary 6 months after the PCX Comic book haters fiasco.

This is NOT the comic book haters.
I never intended it to be. Perhaps haters lite- but in hindsight- that's not really me either.

If that's what YOU wish it to be... that's your call. But I dare day they do that schtick better anyhow.

I've not said a negative word to you or about you on your blog on here- so again, I say- what the fuck?

So when are we going to get a podcast with everyone on at once, duking it out battle-royal style?!?!

(both figuratively and literally speaking, of course)

February 07, 2008 5:09 PM  
Blogger T Mafia said...

Yeah, that'll happen.

Wow, I am so not getting in the middle of this.

A clarification though, since that one bit could be potentially (if not willfully) misread: PCX has never been intended to be anything "lite".

Also, since their public attacks on Tim last year were alluded to (and I know some of you were like, "Huh?"), I'd just like to say:

Fuck N3rdcast!

Talk about haters...

Anonymous SatanicMuffin said...

Sorry, I should have clarified then, so I wouldn't be misread.

I've been listener for a while (since the Elizabeth Bathory #1 & Giant-Size Man-Thing #5 ep.), but as you know only recently started commenting, for no other reason than I felt like it. (which is probably the best reason to do anything) ... and having some extra time at work when the managers go home.

But I digress.... When I spoke of a group podcast I was specifically referring to T Mafia, Vixen, Starhawk, McTrekkie, T_Thoom and possibly Courtney (because we haven't heard her yet, and she is supposed to be on one of your casts rght?)

But I obviously don't know what goes on behind the scenes (though some of it is indirectly referred to in the Xcast). It seemed to me that the core players all together on one show would make for an interesting PCX episode, nothing more.

I actually got to hand it to you guys. PCX actually got me back into comics again, so keep it up.

February 07, 2008 8:51 PM  
Blogger T Mafia said...

No, no, I was specifically referring to Trekkie's "haters lite" remark, because similar comments have been deliberately misinterpreted and used against us in the past.

You'll be getting your wish for a group 'cast actually, as there's one multi-part show we have in the can that features at least three of the six hosts you mentioned.

I downloaded CDisplay!
Now send me the gorramn comic.


I think there is a limit as to how many people you can have on a podcast. Three is the most common number. Could you imagine the whole cast of PodcastX all on at the time? It would be people talking over each other and alot of tangents.

P.S. I've been meaning to say this for some time.... I've actually seen an octocock!!! or at least a video with one in, and a tricock! Yes the legends of Podon are true! haha!

Blogger T Mafia said...

Courtney, as it happens I'm sending the comic(s) to your "sithchic" account now; and yeah, I can imagine everyone on the show at the same time...I can also imagine myself at the ten-hour mark thinking, "...and we're only on page two..."

SatanicMuffin, I hope that's only some twisted anime you've seen, 'cause if we're talking someone's homemade porn videos here, those old Lovecraft stories of human/cephalopod hybrids may in fact have been warnings.

Hmm...maybe it was one of those things that infected Vixen...

February 07, 2008 11:01 PM

No it just so happens that it was not some twisted hentai, but it was a live video. It just so happens that I work for a porn distribution co. so part of my job is content screening videos that we will or won't sell.

So yea that video was live action, but sadly the tri and octococks were fakes... uh, I mean they were totally real endowments given to the chosen few by Lord Satan! ... but I did get a good laugh over it. One of the 'Freaks of Nature' videos I believe.

Those vids sound like Faces of Death in that the shit's so off-the-wall demented that no one cares if it's "real" or not.

PS You get paid for watching porn?! There's a dream job for Starhawk if there ever was one.

Okay, I see I must comment AGAIN on all of this craziness....T Mafia, you KNOW what I had (since you went w/me to the free clinic to get your penicllin shot)....but I'm all better now....Courtney, patience my dear--our episode is coming.....Thoom (a/k/a my baby daddy), I LOVED the origin of Podon story, but be prepared for Starhawk's fury (and I'm still waiting for you to honor the child support order)....Trekkie, it's all in jest...and, uh, Satanic Muffin---I'd just better leave you alone......if I missed anyone else, please blame my head, not my heart...Didn't y'all miss the fuck outta me?????? (smile).....

BTW, y'all know I meant PENICILLIN shot....y'know, being educated in public schools and all....

Like I'd ever step foot in a free clinic; I'm sure I could get cheap penicillin or any other meds I'd need from Canada via the Interwebs just like all the old fucks do.

Also, that child support order was contingent on a DNA test, if I recall; I still say the kid looks like 'hawk.

Yes, I get paid to watch porn. The downside is you have to live in Pittsburgh, well you don't have to live here but commuting from Philly everyday would be a bitch of a commute I'm sure.

btw, nice Pinkertons reference in the cast Trekkie

MC Nim Roddenberry:

What Vixen said. In the past, you've suggested TCM and I go "get a room". You called our podcast "two cans on a string" I didn't take offense because it was posted for laughs... I thought I could retort in the same friendly insult kind of banter. Guess not.

The, uh..."running joke" here is that you are monotone and 'boring', so I ran with it. I actually think your understated humor is a good contrast to the bombast of StarHawk. Plus, you never laugh at your own jokes.

But I didn't mean to piss you off so I won't insult anymore.

However i ust take umbrage at two things you wrote about me:

1) Nothing "happened" in particular in the past year. If you are referring to my abscence I've never had a website don't own a pc, But I still managed to be more prolific than half the podcasters.

I don't have a podcast at the moment because of the above factors and because my last host was an overly sensitive lil' bitch. Seems the internet's full of 'em. That is why I like T-Mafia's PCX.

The second thing I take umbrage at is that Comic Book Haters are more entertaining than THOOM!
THOOM is fifteen times more entertaining that CBH. (that is an actual calculation.) And that isn't me tooting my own horn.

The white guy with the afro who paints trees on PBS is more rawkus and exciting than CBH. Hearing Ben Stein read a manual about installing a home heating system is more compelling. I'm offended.

And for my next trick, I'll address both new posts above with but a single sentence:

I'd rather live in Pittsburgh than listen to certain other podcasts!

PCX: The Classics Tour.

That is stupid, if he can heal with a touch, the doctors would either research it or exploit it, not throw him out. There would be more profit in keeping him.

This is just full of the most stupid unrealistic people, the pastor runs a soup kitchen and doesn't want a healer? How about put the healer in the church? How about get publicity by using a healer to get on TV to ask for donations or charge for his services to run the soup kitchen.

Was Eisner a racist or did he bucked the PC movement ahead of his time. Whatever, but he sure was Jewcentric.

"If I can avoid spending money" is TCM a secret Jew?

Actually what the Iranian prez supposedly said is, "we don't have gays like you do." Meaning they know what's good for them, they will hide their gayness or deny it, like a certain former guest on Thoom identified as "K", does all the time. They are no gay pride parades in Iran and they will get married to a virgin first and then go out and do gay stuff with their other buddies.

MCT couldn't help but be boring in this episode, Invisible people was stupid and dumb. The only reason it would get an award is because of the Jews in charge. You got a miraculous healer with a Jewish name and they don't figure out how to properly exploit him, even to his liking? Unrealistic.

Woody Allen is deceptively very strong, he has that penny pinching strength and speed of the Jew Claw.

Actually Khan at times sounded like he was calling from Papa Jumbo's home in Haiti.
