Wooh, my podcast!
I think I did better in this one but the audio was a bit shakier. We got to page two but that's not because the comic was bad, I just don't talk to Trenchcoat enough.

That was a cool song and appropriate, considering Nick Cave is Australian...And that's it's Red Right Hand....Of DOOM!

Why the fuck did you put that last bit in? Is it because you know I hate Khan? You could have put more of me in it, dammit!

Courtney, you did good, girl. The skype warble is there, but it's not that bad this time.

I would think that after the John Meyer's fiasco of 2004 they would need a real bastard screening anyone who wants to join BPRD. And T Mafia is that bastard.

Okay, I admit it, I'm a pervert, so I gotta ask. Courtney, is your friend an action figure frotteurist?

In the battle of paranormal groups, I would think BPRD would win, but it would be an empty victory. They would die within months from contracting psyhic STD from Touchwood.

And don't knock the dog slavery experiment. Soon, very soon, the the eons old dog slavery experiment will conclude and mankind will be able to use what we have learned to resubjugate womankind. Rub her belly, scratch behind her ear, tell her she's a "good girl" and she'll wag her bottom.

It's my fault we only covered the first scene in this one; when I split our recording into four hour-or-so chunks, I didn't realize almost all of the first segment was just us bullshitting before the show. Hence the fact that there's only about twenty minutes of review (and tangenting, but that's par for the course) in #88 plus the long (but admittedly fitting) break song (that in retrospect, I probably should've put after the review portion instead of during it - such are the things you don't think of at the time when you're editing at the last possible minute; didn't take me long to get "behind schedule" again, did it?) and the Khan "emergency filler" bit I had lying around to pad things out to my self-imposed thirty minute minimum run time.

Don't worry - over the next three weeks, it's all-Courtney Cwm/Coombs from here on in (Cthulhu help us all.)

And yeah, you were clearly more comfortable with the whole podcasting thing this time around, and it showed.


I thought the sound was okay (Skyping to/from Oz'll never sound perfect, after all); I'm pretty much happy as long as what each person on a 'cast is saying is audible and comprehensible, and the overall audio level is fairly even. Those occasional sound dropouts you get from Skype (usually when both parties try to talk at once) really are a bitch, though.


I think Torchwood would win (if the MiB didn't get to their neuralyzers fast enough) since they would just seduce all the others into submission. This scenario ends with a three-way between Scully, Liz Sherman and Gwen Cooper.

I will endeavor to tolerate our canine subjects now that I know the ultimate purpose of the grand Dog Slavery Experiment.

I was looking at your Silver Savior drawing yesterday and I keep thinking, not thru any fault on your part, you did the drawing as per requested and it came out great, it was just missing something. Then it struck me, so obvious, STIGMATA! He's missing stigmata.

Just lights/energy glowing from his hands and feet, like shine or sparkle, maybe.

A stigmata trail. Now I'm not sure what kind. Red light trails, like streaking car lights. Probably best. Maybe use menstrual blood for a realistic look?

I think he fires torrents of blood from his hands when attacking, and can propel himself through the air by shooting blood from his feet when he's not on his cross/surfboard.

Funny how god works in mysterious ways, I was thinking about the stigmata problem. I went into the living room and found my nephews were visiting, they were playing Mario Galaxy and doing something with Mario I never seen before. He was flying on a trail of blood! In a nailed to a cross pose!

There really aren't any original ideas, are there?

Nah, even the Jesus myth isn't original.

PCX: The Classics Tour.

Updating my dog theory.
I'm not sure what the overall dog slavery experiment is anymore, but it did help with a previous girlfriend who did enjoy having her belly rubbed, scratches behind the ears and being called a "good girl" and she would wag her bottom.

Funny, TCM, you do realize you have the same idea Heinlein has about dogs?

I wouldn't have minded if you put in the random talk instead of Khan. You could have just started play from a certain point and it would have been acceptable to most of us.

Hey, I never got an answer if Courtney's friend was a frotteurist or not. Just sniff her action figures.
