Before we go on that magic carpet ride, we groove to the beauty of Blindsprings and the whimsy of Tenko King. After a bit of news and midshow trippiness, it’s time to blaze up, take a soak and let your mind go as we attempt to make sense of the drug-addled mind warp that is Body World. Pass it over!
Midshow trippiness supplemented by “Come On” by ZOE.LEELA of the album Digital Guilt.
This week, Jason played a card game he thinks looks like a webcomic (Sentinels Of The Multiverse) while Steve read an actual webcomic (Oh Hell). They then review the adorable stranger danger in Bird-Boy. Clip those wings and stick around for the fun!
Jason hangs out with Robbie and Bobbie, while Steve stays up with Sleep Deprivation Ninja. They then join forces to try and figure out just what the heck is going on in the time-traveling tale, Saint For Rent. If your nose starts to bleed, you have our permission to pause the podcast and find your constant.
With Sochi being an out-and-out debacle of an ultimate sporting competition, it’s up to us to pick up the slack back here at home. To do this, Jason (yes, that Jason) has been readin’ Sithrah, Rock and Tin, and From Nothing, and Steve checked out Vibe. Jason also tricked Steve into reviewing a gay love story that masquerades as a sci-fi robot adventure. O Human Star by Blue Delliquanti is the real deal in both respects, so be sure you don’t miss out!
Steve floats towards Dead Winter, docks with a nigh unpronounceable comic, and Jason talks about the trouble with Trenches. Then they reunite to discuss the tropey fun that is Star Power. Fire those thrusters and cruise on in!
The Midshow Break
Will Steve’s kid pee his pants? Not if this special robot has anything to say about it. Music by Main Finger (which I think we’ll all agree is the best finger) from Street Fighter II: The World Warrior.
