Your Weekend Justice #215: The Taking of Pelham 123: The Animated Series

Giant Knob of Jon

(Widge here. Had to delay posting this for a week to devote time to the project that’s currently kicking my arse. We’re still not dead.)

It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck, where we spend an inordinate amount of time trying to create a super-weapon that will turn human beings into giant Pez dispensers.

    The Gathering – Book Review

    Gathering by Anne Enright

    Written by: Anne Enright
    Published by: Vintage

    Many Irish writers are preoccupied with what has affected them their whole life: the Irish family. Described by everyone from Samuel Beckett to Cecelia Ahern, there is no escape from this fundamental part of our society.

    Enright chooses the fourteen member Hegarty clan to really convey the many faces of Irish people. In her fictional family, there is a priest (albeit he wants to leave the priesthood), an alcoholic and a deranged housewife–to name but a stereotypical few. At the heart of this huge family is the Irish Mammy. Enright’s Mammy Hegarty differs though, in that she is not the boisterous, headstrong leader that many Irish mothers are. She is meek, weighed down by her children (both dead and alive) and as time progresses, she is only too happy to let them take care of her instead.

    The story is told through the eyes of Veronica Hegarty, one of the children. Enright almost immediately introduces Veronica’s brother Liam and his recent death. What ensues is Veronica’s various emotions of distress, mourning, guilt and reflection on the troubled childhood she had with Liam. Veronica acknowledges that Liam’s death is most likely connected to a terrible incident that occurred many years ago at their grandmother’s home. This incident is referred to vaguely up until halfway through when she actually reveals it. The exposure is skillful because it slips in almost casually without being thrown in your face. Read a line ahead and you’d nearly miss it completely.

    The Sound Board DragonCon 2012 Special: Britpop

    Britpop by Pop Bakery

    Recorded at DragonCon 2012, the three of us partnered with the Brit Media track for yet another iteration of this, a discussion of British music which roams (despite the attempt by special guest star Aaron Poole to keep us on topic) from place to place. Our fifth panelist and special guest star is Kim, who will attempt to keep us relatively mainstream.

    As always, you have various and sundry table noises that we can’t avoid because we were all seated at the table. And I have no idea where the damn interference is coming from. And we apologize in advance for any questions you can’t hear. Also, please note: some sort of interference occurred for a few seconds around thirty minutes in that would have made you bleed from the ears, so we had to lose that short bit.

    Your Weekend Justice #167: You Must Flow Like Waterston

    It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck. It’s the podcast that comes up with great ideas for ways to get kicked out of conventions. They are so awesome you would think it would be totally worth it, but you would get your ass totally booted. Fair warning. This podcast was engineered–some might say over-engineered–by experts to escort you from the work week in the most chaotic manner possible. Please note: this podcast is profane, definitely oversexed and definitely overwrought. It is wrong and unsafe. You have been warned.

    Happy Bloomsday, Everyone

    Guinness and Mug

    Well, it’s still Bloomsday here in the U.S., anyway. And this mug of Guinness is my own personal celebration, since I can’t be in Dublin to wander about and see the literary mayhem firsthand.

    El Fitz from Cabin Fever reminded me that it was today, June 16th, which of course reminded me of this line from Ulysses:

    Stephen, greeting, then all amort, followed a lubber jester, a wellkempt head, newbarbered, out of the vaulted cell into a shattering daylight of no thought.

    That is, no lie, my favorite sentence in the English language. Anyway, a couple of lovely bits after the break. Enjoy.

    Your Weekend Justice #162: Down the Road That We Must Travel

    It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck. It’s the podcast that just can’t be content to leave the past in the past. If bad pop culture was Karloff’s Mummy, this podcast would be dumb enough to break the seal on the tomb. I think that’s what I’m really trying to say here. This podcast was engineered–some might say over-engineered–by experts to escort you from the work week in the most chaotic manner possible. Please note: this podcast is profane, definitely oversexed and definitely overwrought. It is wrong and unsafe. You have been warned.

    Your Weekend Justice #158: The Worst Podcast Ever (Arguably)

    It’s Weekend Justice: the Internet’s #1 audio trainwreck. It’s the podcast that only has a certain amount of games, so if too many people get game, the podcast falls off track. And onto the third rail. And its keys. At the same time. This podcast was engineered–some might say over-engineered–by experts to escort you from the work week in the most chaotic manner possible. Please note: this podcast is profane, definitely oversexed and definitely overwrought. It is wrong and unsafe. You have been warned.
