Man, have I been looking forward to this episode.
I wanted to make a podcast just as good as the Dazzler one and I think we achieved that.
Although, you could have edited some of that out, like where my brother was being a dickhead.

Aidsmaster5000 in slow motion, good call. I was laughing so hard I have LOL-tears.

It's terrifying that even though I try not to act like a teenage girl. It seems that I'm still prone to being occasionaly self-centered, ditzy and bitchy.

PS- You listened to Why So Serious yet?

(Y'now, Courtney, you don't have to always comment as anonymous, especially if you give your name.)

Batman has gotten over the death of his parents. After the events of infinite crisis, it was retconned that his parents' killers were caught, then he went to get rid of his "inner demons" during 52.

I just wanted to know, Trenchcoat, what your DC Trinity would be? Even if it was heroes and villains together, who would be your three?

Courtney - If for no other reason, I tend to leave those bits like you yelling at your brother in just to annoy Trekkie, because he really hates it when anyone breaks the "fourth wall".

Speaking of Jordan, I'm glad the slo-mo apparently worked, since in real life he talks even faster than you reading the origin of PODON.

At least your "teenagedness" was perfectly appropriate for this comic...!

Listened to "Why So Serious"; it was okay, I guess.

Vichus - I dunno, Batman's still acting pretty wacked-out in his own series (though you could probably say, "Well, look who's writing him!")

And by "trinity", I'm assuming you mean my three favorite DC characters, which is a tough one (I mean, the DCU's a pretty lame place.) Off the top of my head, probably Superman (All-Star Superman version), Joker (I'll cheat and say the Heath Ledger version), and Swamp Thing (Alan Moore version; I just wish DC would revive Swampy with another real writer as opposed to whoever wrote that last run!)

Why So Serious is an emotionaly draining song. First time I listened to it all the way through I felt like I had to go out and blow up a hospital or something.

And I've been trying to catch you on Skype lately but it seems you're online too early in the morning.
And we all know what I'm like when I just wake up, as heard in Thoom.

Tsk, tsk, teenage girls crossing legs to be modest in american comics? That's why Manga and Anime rocks, they are well known for their panties and no panties crotch shots. What no boob countage this episode?

I've been to parties where we played 7minutes in Heaven. Never got the girls I really wanted, but still had fun. Something about a dark closet evaporates many inhibitions.

Eddie Brock is now a bible thumping Anti-Venom?

Best symbiote story I ever read is "The Healer" by F. Paul Wilson. It's about a human who fuses with an alien to become immortal. The symbiote makes him stronger, faster, smarter, annoys him sometimes but never tries to chew up his girlfriend. Seriously, hasn't the world seen enough of Venom.

Starhawk said Batman had too much story? Guess he's right if you're used to porno storylines. "Man goes home, finds sister's naked, drunk friend on couch, action."

Zombie cowboys are still gay, right?

Dr Crane is a scholar, he probably posted the fear toxin formula online or the girl bought some on Ebay.

Now I want to see an issue of Batman quitting, because he just got over his parents murder. Why did tv's 1960's Batman fight crime for anyway?

I hate what they've done with Venom.
Eddie became a Jesus-junkie for no reason and then died of cancer instead of letting his (adorable) symbiote cure him.

Oh and the new host is a complete pussy. He's always all like "waah, like I'm a total monster. This symbiote is a burden I must carry every day of my life."

I think Todd McFarlane needs to come back and save Venom.

And cowboys aren't gay. I've watched so many westerns I forget that most people still think Brokeback when they think of cowboys.

3:10 to Yuma, any Clint Eastwood movie, Once Upon A Time In The West...Quickdraw Mcgraw.
All great Westerns.

Cowboys = gay, nope, been seeing that long before Brokeback, just seems like all of the westerns are gay because of it. Maybe it's my sister's fault but she can point out a scene or act and suddenly the movie or tv show is gay. Like she said, "Um... MAGNIFICENT seven.", scenes with steely eyed starred downs become reflections on missed opportunities, and do you really want me to ruin Clint for you?

Eddie's dead. Okay, now the symbiote needs to die also.

What's Todd McF gonna doing anyway? He drew a good venom, that's it. He wasn't the writer. If he was the writer it probably would have been like the first 2 years of Spawn. "Mope, mope, mope, did I mentioned I moped today?, mope, mope, mope. Seriously, I don't remember what those were about except, mope. And then he hired writers.

Courtney: Oh, so you were cranky on THOOM 'cause you were still half-asleep! I just thought it was having to read Brother Power that was making you surly.

I always liked Quick Draw better as El Kabong.

Xantes: It'd be pretty cool if people could snag themselves Scarecrow's fear toxin (or super-villain weapons in general) on eBay. Then again, Brock auctioned off the Venom symbiote and all that did was ruin Brock and Venom as characters.

October 29, 2008 10:30 PM

Do you really think the symbiote would have let itself be auctioned to the highest bidder? How did it find Brock in the first place? It found him by searching for someone who hated Peter. Whole idea was weak.

Actually in the DC universe there have been a couple of stories of people who purposely looked for powers including in auctions, on and offline. And it usually goes bad for them. Moral of DC universe: Don't buy your powers, just hang out in isolated out of the way places and something'll come by and hastly give it to you. Or go tresspass somewhere you'll most likely get killed at and some of the time, you'll get to fly home.

Of course, Hitler Lite aka Tony Stark pretty much bought his "powers" (instead of say, earning them somehow) but no one ever thinks of it that way.

On a completely unrelated matter, the host of another podcast mentioned a while ago they were no longer listening to 'casts where any host used an alias. I didn't bother addressing that at the time, but I came across the following and can't resist posting it in response:

"Anonymity is a shield from the tyranny of the majority... It thus exemplifies the purpose behind the Bill of Rights, and of the First amendment in particular: to protect unpopular individuals from retaliation-- and their ideas from suppression-- at the hand of an intolerant society." - US Supreme Court

So there. Also, I have to wonder if said comics podcaster also boycotts the work of Frank Quitely...or should I say, the artist who draws under the alias of Frank Quitely?

Courtney and Xantes, you can stop reading now; I'm gonna talk baseball for a second. Ahem. Okay, inevitably, the haters' attempts to diminish what the Phillies just accomplished in winning the World Series have begun. All over the blogosphere, the Rays are being retconned as having been the "underdogs". Um, WTF?!

Of course, that's the sort of "fair and balanced" reporting I expect these days from the media (both on- and off-line) these days. In 2008, the Rays won (ahem) 97 regular season games to the Phils' mere 92. Now, I know Confederates and their sympathizers don't much cotton to book learnin', but there's a little something called basic math they may want to look into. Not to mention the Rays' home field advantage. Or the fact that each pitcher in Tampa Bay's post-season rotation came to the playoffs with 10+ wins under their belts. And so on.

People of North Florida, let me explain this to you: You guys were the favorite (fuck, if you don't believe me, ask Las Vegas!) and yet, you tanked. Badly. It's called "choking". The Mets do it every year.

And lest anyone think I'm imagining the media's anti-Philadelphia bias, I'll just note the hack St. Petersburg sports columnist who actually used the term "knuckle-dragging Neanderthals" when writing about Philly's loyal and long-suffering fans. Well, loser, the lyrics to "Southern Man" right back at you.

Hey Treeeennchhcoooaat...When can I Skype you? I'm tired of the boring conversations of teenagers around here.

XF- That's what I meant, Todd drew a good Venom, the one I grew up with. He was hot.
Venom isn't drawn too pretty lately, especially not in Thunderbolts, or whatever it is. He has eyes.
If I lived in the Marvel universe I would have stolen the symbiote just before Eddie auctioned it off.
And then my life goal of blending would finally be accomplished!

I hate people who see "teh gays" in everything. So punch your sister in the face for me!

And fuck the US supreme court, anonimity is basically everyone on the Internet. Although I do use my own name because I love it so. My mum made a good choice.

Oh and I just saw this thing on the Simpsons, they were calling French fries, freedom fries.
And I know they tried that in reality, but if they had a problem with the French part wouldn't you just call them chips?
You call the crispy chips, crisps anyway, so it's not like there'd be any confusion.


DR.DOOOM!

I mean...Courtney

re: Skype - Check yr e-mail.

I've never used "crisp" as a noun in my whole life. That's the foreign-people word for potato chips, right? Well, I guess if you're gonna call french fries "chips", you've gotta call potato chips something. I'd say we should all just speak (and spell) like Americans, but I know how proud you are of things like spelling "colour" with that gratuitous "u".

Courtney - Yeah but that was part of the problem before, McF's Venom looked so good that even years later when he didn't look good and the story sucked marvel was able to put out over 20 Venom mini series mostly all crap and multi covers.

T Mafia - Okay I was guilty of calling fries, chips during my Dr. Who obsession phase. Used to annoy the McD guy, "Large chips, please, govenor."

Did I post that here last year?

The Phillies fans are a bunch of assholes, booing Bud Selig when he congratulated and officially named the Phillies(imaginative name there) the champs. Ungrateful bastards. The only people who cared about this world series were in Philadelphia and Tampa Bay. THe rest of the nation wasn't interested.

We (the whole country) would've rather seen Dodgers vs. Boston or some other exciting franchise duke it out.

FUCK Bud Selig. Ungrateful?! We won it all despite that gargoyle-looking cocksucker allowing game five to start when they were predicting a goddamn monsoon. And then he waits to suspend the game after Tampa Bay ties it?! Oh, I forgot...they can't show as many lucrative TV ads if the Series only goes five games, after all.

And yes, "Dodgers" is a fitting name. You know, since you guys are gonna be dodging the postseason from now on once Manny signs with a real team.
And "the whole country" can keep sucking on those sour, sour grapes.

Lucrative? This has gotta be the lowest rated World Series ever.

Manny ain't going nowhere.

"On a completely unrelated matter, the host of another podcast mentioned a while ago they were no longer listening to 'casts where any host used an alias."

Meanwhile, that same podcaster has a podcast about comic books, and frequently reads superhero comics: fictional stories about people with aliases. The same guy is also fan of "pro wrestling" in which virtually everyone has an alias.

A Series fucked up by Mother Nature is still gonna sell more TV ads than a week of Hole in the Wall repeats. And speaking of weather and such, at least we've never had a World Series interrupted by third world shit like earthquakes. Man up, California! So the ground could open up and swallow you whole as you're playing...it's all part of the game!

Manny's probably daydreaming about how he's gonna look in Yankee pinstripes as we speak.

And how the hell did Bud Selig, despite the lack of a measurable IQ, get to be Commissioner, anyway?! Even friggin' retards know to come in out of the rain!

Headline -Baseball's World Series scores lowest TV ratings ever

Will you drunks just admit it, baseball is boring.

Sports more entertaining that boreball.

Look, once you get really drunk, dwarf chucking becomes too much damn effort and it's time to watch baseball.

I'd actually approve of that "wife carrying" sport if it ended with, say, dropping the wife off a cliff or into a fire or something.

But, no: "The woman hangs on, as the man does all the work."

Ah. Just like real life, then.

Nah. Though I'm surprised that such a hate-mongering (you should check out their infamous "This Godless Communism" strip) comic even published that. Then again, maybe they meant it as a horror story.

Well, since there's no risk of her ever coming after me with a bunch of secret service men now, (Just gotta watch the skies for helicopter hunts)-

What's the difference between Sarah Palin's mouth and her vagina?





Only one retarded thing has popped out of her vagina.

Good one. Even if I suspect that's not her own kid, but her daughter's secret first vagina monster. Of course, Sarah Palin's husband is still probably the father; those red state types like to "keep it in the family", if you know what I mean. No wonder the kid's a tard.

PCX: The Classics Tour.

Ahem, Marshal Law: Kingdom of the Blind.

1st appearance of Aidsmaster 5000? (Why can I hear it better this time? Did you redo this one?

Seriously, Courtney, that's how you dumped your friend? By telling her you've grown apart via email? Just email her back less, say she somehow got spam filtered, you're busy, make into a weekly thing. Stop emailing her for a bit and pretend you've been hacked or forgot your password. Careful if you still have mutual friends. Or just "accidentally" email her the naked pix StarHawk sent you.

Wait a second, so you were out there spreading the pox while wearing a mask? How 15th century of you.

The car key game is a swingers thing and you don't have to do it in the car, you can drive to their place. (see Ice Storm) Aids basically killed it but there are some groups who still do.
