Digital Strips Podcast 322 – Book Club – Gunnerkrigg Court, Fourth Edition

We kick things off be talking about what I’m sure is one everyone’s mind: pineapple. Our insightful take on this most important issue for our day that could have changed the lives of millions was quickly derailed by a descent into what Steve, Jason and Steve’s son think of people who make different live choices. Steve mourns the lose of a potential good transtion.
We get in to Jason’s pick (Escape from Burgertown) which comes with no information beyond the name Zac Gorman. As usual, Steve’s pick (Moth City) is completely diffrent, has more information, but you have to put up with his nonsense, which usually isn’t worth it.
We ramble about cursing at work and how Steve’s company combats it as well as how long it’s been since Steve watched a commerical.
After that we jump junk deep into Part 4 of Gunnerkrigg Court. We talk about how many story threads we’re going through and what it takes to keep up with them.
It’s a good time. Enjoy.

  1. Pronunciation:

    Antimony: Anne-tih-moe-knee
    Reynardine: Rehn-nar-deen
    Muut: Moot (close enough)
    Coyote: Kai-yo-tee
    Ysengrin: Iss-en-grin
    Jeanne: Jonn (Sort of. Try http://french.about.com/library/media/wavs/Jeanne.wav)

    Reynard and Ysengrin go together in medieval english folklore; the principal story you could look up, if you like, is called “The Trial of Reynard”. Spring-Heeled Jack is another folklore character (Victorian, that time), which is why the chapter is called that.

    Also, if you didn’t like Residential there is something seriously wrong with both of you. There, I said it.

  2. Ah crap, some one who knows what they’re talking about! Quick Jason, hide!

    Thanks for the tip. I’ll be sure to check out the “Trial of Reynard” I would like to know about these characters’ basis in folklore.

    We liked the robot cows. That’s all that’s important.

  3. Sorry, that was a typo; it’s actually The Trial of Renard. Although lord knows spelling was kind of an optional extra in medieval times anyway.
