And for those of you still on the fence, it has: Music by Oingo Boingo, Susan Tryell, The Kipper Kids, Danny Elfman as Satan singing 'Minnie the Moocher', Herve Villachez as the romantic lead, a frog-headed butler named Bustrod, and is guaranteed to offend you at least once. Joy!

Forbidden Zone is one of those things that has made me pleased as highly alcoholic punch for over 20 years now. I was a little surprised to find you'd only recently seen it, what with you being such a huge Oingo Boingo fan. It has some of the best quotable dialogue I've ever heard. "Direct descendant of GOD?!? You just wanna slip 'er the PORK!!!" Hee hee... Do a blog post, Wil. The world must know.

Oh, one more thing. A while back you did a blog entry where you mentioned the 'Pseudopod' podcast. On your recommendation I listened, subscribed, and was so impressed with the stories I volunteered to read for them. I've narrated four stories for them so far, and gained a metric buttload of experience as a voice actor, learning how to adapt my VO style to other people's work. I even had one of the authors e-mail me personally to compliment my narration and express an interest in having me read his future stories (which is triple awesome as his writing is INCREDIBLE. Check out 'Love Like Thunder' and 'Reservation Monsters' over at Pseudopod. His name is Jim Biyeh, and if he's not in a 'Best Fantasy of the Year' collection soon, then there's no hope for the world). Anyway, the point is, I have you to thank here. If you hadn't plugged Pseudopod, then I would never have had one of the coolest experiences of my life. Thanks, man!

First off, Rodeohead was a tasty, tasty, treat. Second, thanks for the Ficlets demise heads up, I signed up for Ficly and found the Ficlets graveyard so I could disinter my old stories. Third, thanks for bringing RFB back, I missed it. Were you to provide the world with an RFB promo, I would gladly play it for my listeners. Lookin' forward to more...

I love this pocast, please continue to do it or RFB on a semi-regular basis. Stopping would make bunny cry. And thanks for the 'Harps' joke. Now every time I hear celtic music, I'll be thinking of Riker with a 'Hellloooo ladies.' look on his face.

Okay. "Captain Picard controls the sky!" actually made me do a real-life spit-take. Congratulations, Wil, you're only the third person to ever do that. Secondly: A wire coat-hanger and an old pair of pantyhose can be fashioned into a decent pop screen in mere seconds. Cheap as free. Thirdly, please do an audiobook of 'Memories', you do the best audiobooks I've ever heard (what with all the asides and all). Seriously, I'm not sucking up here. To my knowledge, no one puts as much heart and extra thought into as you did on 'Geek' and 'Happiest Days', they were a joy to listen to. Lastly: Thank god you're doing podcasts again! I missed these! Since its going t be a series, any chance you could do a quick mp3 promo for it so's us podcasters could give it a plug on our shows?

Cool! I'm glad someone is doing this!

BTW, Wil, I hope you saw Gabe's pic of the impromptu D&D session he did with the graph paper, Lego men, and iPhone dice app. My heart grew 10 sizes that day... While I appreciate the production values of the new tiles, minis, etc., Its the lo-fi, tin can and string games that makes my imagination the happiest.

I always wanted to see a movement of modding packing materials. Every time I get a piece of gear, the styrofoam or compressed cardboard shipping bits from the box always reminds me of fantasy buildings or dungeon rooms. A little paint, railroad decoration stuff and elmer's glue and you'd have a killer set for minis. Better than chucking them in a landfill, I guess.

God in heaven. Do more STNG reviews in the podcast. Wonderful. Makes me smile so much.

Sweeet! Good to have the podcast back. I really enjoy your banter as much as the music. Have you considered using the p-cast as an outlet for your sketch comedy? It's what I and many others do for creative fun. Also a great place to do readings of short stories (you're quite good at those. read a ficlet or three), and while I'm on the subject; that live performance of the STNG review you posted a while back was ten times the win of the already hee-larry-us written version. Spoken word versions of the reviews would just about define the parameters of an awesome podcast. I'm talking loads of listeners and iTunes top page ratings and such... Just a thought.

Wil (and anyone reading this) If'n you're checking out Magnatune, make sure to give the band 'Falling You' a listen. Especially the song 'The Canoe and the Waterfall'. They're sweeeeet. And for good old fashion, twangy, fun as hell, Munsters-theme sounding punk, 'The Jackalopes'. Magnatune has ruled for several years now.
