Yes, the show's still officially bi-weekly, so before anyone asks why this one's a few days early or why the next few eps will likely have other-than-Sunday "release dates", it's all just part of clearing Halloween week for our annual Tribute to Satan episode - an event I'm sure all the innocent children of the world look forward to every year. What? Somebody's gotta take that disgusting innocence away from them...

What's wrong with being dropped off at school by your parents? It's what everyone does around here.

That Jim Jones audio was so creepy. Especially when the children started crying. I can't handle that noise. Must come from having a uterus or something.
I can't believe anyone took him seriosly with that terrible lisp though.

This comic is so right, reminds me why I like Warren Ellis.

I have passes to an advanced screening of District 9 next Wednesday. Thinking about doing another podcast to review it.

See, back when I was a kid, you'd at least have to ride your own pet dinosaur to the school cave.

Aha! The Jim Jones clips disturbed you, thus proving that deep down, you are human! Meanwhile, I can just picture Xantes (since he's even more heartless than me) laughing out loud at those clips. In my defense, I think I only chuckled a bit. And yeah, no one ever brings up Jones' pronounced lisp! What are we doing, protecting his reputation or something?!

Actually, I think this was the best solo ep. so far, but Warren Ellis probably deserves half the credit for that.

I dunno what to think about District 9. On the one hand, it's rated "R" over here (Can it be? A sci-fi movie for grown-ups?!) On the other ha-- oh wait, I just saw that Peter (Heavenly Creatures) Jackson directed it. Okay, I'm there.

Understandable that in the Outback, parents drive their kids to school, it's dangerous down there.

In the states, kids are now being taken to school because of the roving gangs of PedoPreists.

Actually when I was younger and more religious I was thinking of starting my own religion since I thought everyone else had it wrong, especially the Vatican.

TCM, I would think you would give a shit if kids were getting shot on school playgrounds, isn't that where you hang out?

The world needs a proper Jonestown: The Musical. This ain't it.

Bush administration had a study done on effects of video games on children. No real connection.

The investigator's first reaction should have been, "Sting, what are you doing here?"

If there is ironic justice in the world, Joe Quesada will rightly die of lung cancer.

I still say the Tank Girl movie isn't as bad as it's made out to be.

Whoever made that PedoPriest videogame is both evil and sick in the head. I approve.

"Xanteism". Oh, that's not a terrifying thought...!

Actually, if someone came along and killed a few of these schoolgirl whores while I was there picking out a victim, he'd be doing me a favor. Dead bitches never fight back.

My favorite part of that Jonestown musical sketch is where Jones shoots that guy dead and one person in the audience laughs out loud. Clearly, I must have been there and just don't remember.

Wait, Bush supports violent video games? Shit, maybe they're really dangerous after all.

Actually, I like when the Hellblazer artists remember Constantine's supposed to look like a fortysomething Sting. For a while there, they were drawing him like he was some aging, pathetic, washed-up-- oh, wait. That's the real Sting.

If Quesada dies of lung cancer, those bits we've done with his dead daddy will just have been the beginning of how tasteless our Joey Q bashing will be...

Nah, I was thinking more like First Church of the True Word. I think that's actually taken.

Yeah, but I'm talking about getting hit by a stray shot. I know I hate getting shot at.

No, Bush is part of the "blame violent video games for the violence" crowd. The study showed there is no connection except violent people tend to like violent games and unlike more balance people, can't associate or won't associate reality from game.

I should start a Second Church of the True Word. Of course, my message would be, "Don't listen to those First Church guys; Jebus personally told me they're full of shit!"

I just assume any potential school shooter would be a Podcast X fan and therefore they'd never fire a shot in my direction.

So they tell Bush the truth about something (like "Iraq's totally harmless, they can't even spell 'W.M.D.' over there.") and his defective brain reacts like they just told him the opposite? Huh. What a surprise.

Wait, why would you start a church if you're an atheist? That means you're responsible for making people more ignorant.

Destroy all the churches, that seems like a good place to start.

I just read Marvel Ultimatum and I think it killed what little insanity I had left.

They killed Dr.Doom.

Myself? I was still a theist when I contemplated starting a church. Seriously do you think a lot of those who start churches believe what they preach? See Joseph Smith, See L. Ron Hubbard, See Mary Baker Eddy, See PTL Club. See Popoff (heard he's been down under.)

Ultimate Doom dead? You sure it wasn't a doombot or a body double?

Courtney, churches are one of the best ways to con people into handing over all their money, so there is that! But seriously, if any pyromaniacs are reading this - go for it! Podcast X proudly supports church burning (unless they catch you - in which case, for legal purposes, we're just, um, "kidding"...)

Also, I'm confused - if your insanity was killed, wouldn't you be sane now? Because I can't even imagine that.

Xantes, They wiped out like half the Ultimate U characters in Ultimatum, so it was probably the real Doom.

And Tim's Alzheimer's must be getting worse, hence his forgetting he's almost as "old" as me. Speaking of Tim, since it was probably the failure of his THOOM! line of mouse pads/coffee mugs/sex toys/etc. that ruined our economy, I'm holding off on the whole t-shirt/merchandising thing myself.

Ahhh, burning churches, smells like barbecue.

I came full circle on sanity. Now I don't know where my head is at.

I was just waiting for someone to link to that Onion video.

OMG, Noel Fielding! He's my fashion idol. Well one of them.

I love Funny or Die, that was a great video. Good costumes too.

Right, there's a world outside of clothes. I forget sometimes. Let's see what else is there? Men, sci-fi, puppies and world domination.

Oh, I saw District 9 tonight. It was brilliant. Intellectual, original and engaging. And the aliens were so perfect. Now days CGI is just a standard part of movies. But this is one of the few cases where I was genuinely impressed with how realistic they were.

Definitley one of the best movies of the year.

Should record a review this weekend. Did anyone even listen to my last one?

Did you read the credits on The Ballad? That was the real Sgt. Slaughter, he's probably not doing much but that shocked me funny to see him there. I also loved the Clarinet duo, a lot of "b" level actors in this.

Was your last review on the Transformers?

Figured you'ld like the link to I Spit On Your Rave, I guess it's not the Untitled Mighty Boosh Project listed on IMDB.com or are they crazy enough to do a zombie mockumentary as part of Booshverse?

August 12, 2009 12:05 PM  
OpenID pyrothemaniac said...

Nah, that's not related to the Boosh at all.

I did a written review of Transformers 2, but my podcast was about Watchmen.

Too bad, I could see Naboo coming in at that last moment, having all the zombies tear him apart and eat a peice of him and turning everyone back to human, much like the Jesus story.

Okay, now I'm seeing that Peter Jackson just "produced" District 9. Fuck that shit. A producer credit like that just means he was like, "Yeah, you can use my name to sell your little movie; just make sure you pay me some big bucks for my not having a thing to do with it!"

Back in 1987, I was a foot messenger, I delivered a movie from one office to another. I never got royalty from it.

Oops, meant royalties.

And the way Hollywood just hands out these movie credits, they couldn't give you one for, I dunno, "Film Can Wrangler" or something?!

PCX: The Classics Tour.

Shoot

Wait a sec, I thought I owned this comic before, ten yrs ago, did I slip between worlds again? Does the novel, Robots and Foundation exist in this plane of reality?

Insignificant? Wasn't it the birth of Trenchcoat Mafia?

There are so many reasons and ways to get into schools.

Kid killers, even if they are kids, are looked down on in prisons

Had killed? Jim Jones had not actually killed anyone.

Jonestown and school killings? So the message is the US is not Christian enough, so kill yourself?

Flying chainsaw Jesus, maybe not, see the Left Behind video games. Their sales sucked.

Paul Levitz is okay. I loved his Legion run. Sure he had to shoot down that issue, if he didn't they would had both been fired. Can you see Corporate DC/Warner Bros accepting such a story line?

And here's the other thing, Hellblazer's world is not ours, It may be in the Vertigo stage where superheroes are not part of the continuity but there are demons, magic and quasi-crazy organizations out there guiding the world for their nefarious ends. Or there may be heroes and it should make you wonder if having Superman and Batman leads to suicides. But it's obviously not our world because as far as I understood the kids didn't just stand there in any of the school shootings, they ran, to hide, to get away, to try to survive.

Wow, District 9, seems like yesterday. And I understand Thoom hating this movie but again in his comments and in his blog he missed the points of the movie, ragged on nonsense and was okay with the wrong.

So this was the Boosh Project, The Mighty Boosh Live: Future Sailors Tour (Video 2009)

Still upset I never got royalties from delivering Big.
