What Is Best In Life?

Rest assured that episode 12 of the podcast is definitely in production. The Cohort came through and shortly after I sounded the call I had Beauty & Warrior in hand and attacking me, much as the monster textbook attacked Harry Potter...

Anyway, for those of you who are going through withdrawal symptoms until the next episode is released I present my recent appearance on the I ♥ The 80’s Podcast, hosted by Eeeper where I spent a good hour and a half dissecting and reveling in the awesomeness that is Conan the Barbarian.

Give it a listen!

Calling the Cohort to action!

So yeah, I've got this podcast thing lanquishing in drydock. The subject for the next episode is a gruesome twosome of Digiview Entertainment offerings: Thunder Prince and Beauty and Warrior. I have copies of both, shelling out $1 apiece for them at Wal-Mart.

I've watched Thunder Prince and am ready to proceed with the review for it, but Beauty and Warrior... Well, I'd like to speculate that the disc itself became sentient and, in an effort to spare the world further exposure to the movie through my podcast review, elected to break free from its mooring in the DVD case and scratch itself to unplayablity. I can get through the first thirteen minutes, and then lockup.

This is where you come in! Do you have a DVD copy of Beauty and Warrior I could borrow? Do you even have--gasp!--a torrent link? Contact me--you can be the savior of this episode!

In the meantime, I think it's in the best interest of getting the podcast back on the air, so I'm going to shelve this episode until I can properly confront Beauty & Warrior. I'm not going to reveal the subject--you'll just have to wait and listen!

Stay patient, folks. This is the kind of seasonal release schedule you've come to expect and loathe!

Lather's Blather Special #01: The Happening...Isn't

Tonight I have a special guest review to share with you...even though it's still me reading it.

I present to you Matt Murray's review of The Happening, the latest bit of cinematic navel-gazing from M. Night Shyamalan.

For more from Matt, be sure to visit Corn Pone Flicks, a noted repository of dusty fan parodies and fake movie trailers that somehow manage to outshine a lot of things today. Funny how that goes sometimes.

If you enjoyed hearing his review, be sure to let me know--and me! I'd love to do more of these reviews, but I need you, the listener, to help decide that.

Lather's Blather Episode #11: Jejune to the Max

As promised, I've got a folder of podcast direct downloads! Feel free to dive into the sack until I get it unpacked and more properly sorted out.

Oh yeah, and there's a new episode of the podcast too! More robust show notes will follow--you know the drill. Midnight oil and all that (no "Beds Are Burning" gags, please).

It's the bottom of the ninth, bases loaded, full count--and Battlefield Baseball steps up to the plate. Will it knock one out of the park or will folks in the box seats feel the breeze from an almighty whiff?

If we're not back by morning, call the President.

I find "podfading" to be such a toxic, corporate-sounding term that I am very hesitant to use it. And yet it seems I'm falling into that trap, am I not? Rest assured that production continues on the next episode, even if it's been slowed to a crawl.

I've just returned from four days out in the woods at Gettysburg PA for a large Civil War reenactment, part of which was a four-mile march across parts of the actual battlefield. Over 170 men participated in this voluntary excursion (maybe 10% of the total that were at the rest of the event), something I'm not likely to ever see in my lifetime again at that scale.

Outside of my duties with that as a battalion sergeant major, which took a lot of planning and time away from the show for the past few months, I've been massively swamped with large-quantity jobs at my place of employment. We're talking 12,000 and 20,000 piece jobs where the equipment can output maybe 100 units per hour, in addition the myriad smaller quantity jobs that flow through the place every day. Pretty much every day in May and June has become a precarious balancing act.

The growing impatience I am seeing from the Cohort as I am increasingly nudged to get on with it is, surprisingly, an encouragement to me. It means you want more, and that you haven't completely given up on me.

Believe me, I'm working on it and you'll have it soon enough.

Lather's Blather Episode #10: You Wouldn't Get This from Any Other Guy

The hour is late and the flesh is weak. Suffice it to say that I will be back later this day to expand on this skeletal of notices for what is bound to be a very talked-about episode of the podcast.

Direct download is here, and I promise that these direct download links are going to change fairly soon.

Awaken, Mighty DAWDLER!!!1

I've appeared on yet another episode of Paul Chapman's The Greatest Movie Ever! podcast, this time regaling his listenship with tales of woe and wonder from 2007's South Korean epic (fail) known as D-WAR. Ready yourself for CGI dragons, CGI armies, miserable directing and pitiful attempts at acting.

I humbly offer this in place of episode 10 of Lather's Blather, for now.

Lather's Blather Episode #09: Two Words - Train Fu

Feel free to choose your metaphor: a submarine surfacing after months below the ocean, the first daffodils of springtime punching through the last vestiges of a winter's frost, the light at the end of the tunnel, the arrival of the pizza delivery man...

I'm back! And I've got a new episode to share with you! The subject, other than regaling (boring) you with tales from real life, is Muteki Kanban Musume, a fun little romp through the tried and true standards of shonen fighting shows.

Direct download is here.

Oh and this is for Daryl:

This is your horse.

This is my horse. I am 6'4" tall. My horse is a tall horse. Yes he is!
