It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck…finally back with another pre-DragonCon episode as we try to clear out the archives now that 2nd Halloween is over. This was recorded before the con, so when you run across those bits, don’t be alarmed.
It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck, the podcast that is the one thing that we have up on John Waters.
The latest issue of Super-Villain Team-Up…
It’s Episode #173 for Medieval Times Atlanta, in which our protagonist is joined by the wizard, Rox of Spazhouse. Together, they discuss the perils of giant owls, how to cheer for (and thus confuse) the villain, and how to raise your social standings through copious amounts of medieval beer.
It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck–the podcast that is not a doctor, doesn’t play one on TV and doesn’t advocate alcohol…it just prescribes it.
As previously stated, Neil Gaiman is making his Farewell Tour. Perhaps one day he might decide to reform and make another round…but at the moment, this is it. We’ve teamed up with Eagle Eye Bookshop in Decatur, Georgia to host The Neil for his stop in the Atlanta metro area. Tickets for the event went rather fast.
Having finally gotten around to putting together the video (or recovering from the activities in the video–you be the judge), we bring you the sequel to our previous Beerventure in which we went in search of the North American Red Robin Sam Adams Octoberfest Milkshake. This time around Need Coffee sent Big Dub the Mighty along with Widgett Walls to sample as many beers as possible at Hotoberfest 2012, which was held in Atlanta on October 6th of last year.
What resulted was an increasing amount of beer, drunkenness, excess, pizza, mead and also beer. And a pair of weirdos with snifters who became increasingly incoherent as the day wore on. Spoilers: it all ends passed out on a couch. Enjoy. They did.
So…DragonCon. Like most years, it descended upon Atlanta and our lives like one of those motherships out of V. And like most years, our sense of time and place was devoured just like Diana from V snacking on a guinea pig.
The strangeness of that pair of similes is testament to the slow road to recovery that all DragonCon survivors feel. Just for the record.
Other members of Need Coffee might have different stories to share, but here’s mine:
We started with Make the Bad Men Stop, our traditional opening panel held at Leigh’s X-Track. The podcast version is forthcoming, but suffice to say we spent a great deal of time talking about Marvel movies, DC movies, plus a bit about The Dark Tower among other things. As I warned the audience, Need Coffee panels meander from topic to topic until guidance comes in the form of input from the audience. And if you’re thinking that perhaps our regular podcasts could use such influence, remember that these audience comments form suggestions. Our chaos cannot be reliably channeled.
It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck. It’s the podcast with show notes that are the best show notes based on the novel Robinson Crusoe that you’ve ever read. Or not read. Does anyone actually read these words?
I’m fortunate to live in an area of Atlanta that has a different international market on every corner. This opens up a variety of options to me as far as bizarre snacks, questionable ingredients and general experimentation. And I do love experimentation.
While we enjoy the cheap meats, hard-to-find ingredients and overall selection at the markets, one of our favorite things to do is to buy something strange-looking and just try it. You never know when you’ll find that one thing that you didn’t know you loved yet and can’t live without. Personally, I tend to focus on drinks. You can tell a lot about a culture by looking at what they drink.
For example, people in Taiwan like things that taste gross. I’m not making this up. If you are lucky (?) enough to try a delicious (?), freshly chilled can of Mong Lee Shang’s Pearl Soybean Drink (with tapioca ball) in Mung Bean Flavor, you’ll agree that the Taiwanese sure do drink things that taste like mung bean. Ahh…tastes like cultural enlightenment to me!
