Cosmic comic book talk
May 26, 2017 07:22 AM PDTYOU ARE COMING DOWN WITH ME, HAND IN UNLOVABLE HAND At the end of the day, when the lonely trumpet sounds its mournful note, and you’re finally called to account for yourself; when you’re making the case that yes, damnnit, yes I did deserve to be here; that all the mindless consumption and waste, the hours spent idling, all the petty thoughts, insecurities and jealousies, all of it could be justified because didn’t we just create the greatest, the finest, the absolute zenith of podcasts? Didn’t we do that? And doesn’t that make it okay? All the tears, the loneliness and the broken dreams…it makes it okay doesn’t it? Well doesn’t it? HA HA HA!! It’s time for SILENCE!

NOBODY TELLS ME WHAT TO DO, NO NOT ME
Well, this was a lot of fun. On May 11th 2017, Gary Lactus, The Beast Must Die and Lord Nuneaton Savage sat atop the Bishop’s Finger with a the finest fellows a bunch of pod bods could ever hope for.
Small Press was the theme of the evening but first we started off with Tam Laniado leading a tribute to the recently rest-in-peaced Leo Baxendale.
Proceedings proceeded with some rambling chat which covered such small press obscurities as Bum Child by Tim Leopard, OHM by an odd chap that John Bishop met at a convention many years ago, Fast Fiction, Meow by Cyriak and L.I.F.E. Brigade by the delusional genius C. A. Stormon. There was also talk of Viz and the indestructible Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
After a pleasant refill we decided it would be sensible to talk to the creators present. This meant John Riordan going on about Hitsville UK, Douglas Noble waffling on about Strip For Me and Gareth Hopkins guffing about Intercorstal. Luckily there’s some top top chat about daytime TV wine experts to liven things up.
After a lovely singalong we turned off the recording devices and indulged in social activities which shall go unrecorded and spoken of in hushed tones as the years passed thus turning all present for this wonderful evening into legends.SILENCE! #225
May 17, 2017 01:57 AM PDTTHE MASTER HEALED MY WOUNDS… AND SHOWERED ME WITH FOOD DID YOU KNOW there’s a word in German for the weight gained whilst overeating because of emotional distress? Amazing! DID YOU KNOW there’s a German word for the witty come backs you think of later? Yeah, it’s true! DID YOU KNOW the Germans have a word to describe the a longing for far off places? Our German cousins, eh? DID YOU KNOW that in Germany they have a word for the conversations English speakers have about how Germans have words that describe really specific things? DID YOU KNOW sharks can smell London from space?
May 08, 2017 02:11 PM PDTNO TRESPASS BY ORDER, BY DRUNKEN DISORDER MORE LIKELY OLD PRICK When you dine at the devil’s table you better make sure you bring your own cutlery. Also bring your own napkin. Some sort of hand santitizer wouldn’t go amiss either. Basically, everyone knows the Devil’s a bit of a prick so take precautions. This should all really go without saying. The real question is why are you dining at the Devil’s table in the first place? Obviously you’re better off not dining at the Devil’s table. Tell you what, if you’re dining at the Devil’s table you deserve everything coming to you (unless you’re buttering him up for a reduced membership fee at the Devil’s Gym with its Olympic sized swimming pool that isn’t full of school kids and old people taking up too much lane space with an impossibly slow breast stroke. It’s a great gym.) Gary Lactus and Bobsy are creeping up the creaky wooden stairs in the old haunted house that is your ear mind, hoping not to knock anything over and disturb the SILENCE! #224.
May 05, 2017 12:38 AM PDTTHERE'S A MESSAGE TO YOUR MOVEMENTS THAT REALLY GETS MY GOAT Look, don't stare at me like that. I don't have a blurb for you ok? I mean it, stop making those sad eyes at me! I ran out of blurbs ages ago and I'm sure as sugar not going to just rustle up something right here and now! I'm not some johnny-come-blurbly! If I choose to do another blurb it'll be on my terms. I will not be strong-armed or emotionally blackmailed. My blurb, my rules!

SILENCE! Man’s oldest friend. Since time immemorial began throughout history it has been SILENCE! which has fed our children, built our houses, lit our fires and shoed our horses. Welcome to what is probably the single most essential issue of SILENCE! ever. Gary Lactus and Bobsy talk a load of balls, discuss SILENCE! LIVE #2 (to be held May 11th at the same place as last time, tell us in the comments if you’re up for it) and create some Slash Fiction///./../../..>>>>>##””’][=-`
';#.,/=-p][p'ITEM This has never happened before! Gary and Bobsy are both posting simultaneously and the streams are getting crossed!!! Gary had this chill- ironic narrator thing going, see above, but bobsy was going to do a bit about that show about the Mormon wives, and the guys with all the unhappy wives? Gary is the dumb guy who has to remember four wedding anniversaries per annum and TBMD, Maid of Nails, bobsy and co are all his babymakers who all loathe each other? It was gonna be a bit like that.
ITEM Bobsy didn't really know where this was going to go however, so he started writing the end first and hoped a good bit for the start would come to him while he was going along. It to be honest, hadn't...
ITEM And then the thing with the crossed streams happened which saved bobsy's bacon quite a bit. Good old Gary: it's his spaceship, we just float in it.
ITEM Then Gary and his third, or is it his seventh, fave wife have a great TV news section they didn't have the presence of mind to call Silence! Because I’m trying to watch the telly and they say stuff about Legion and Samurai Jack.
ITEM Death is gripped as the celestially betrothed and cosmically neglected couple pair bond and enter the Reviewniverse! where they talk about the comics time of course: Inhumans Prime, Xmen Prime, Lone Wolf and Cub, Galaxy of Brutality: Space Riders, Spider Woman, Black Widow, Rick and Morty, Cinema Purgatorio and Detective Comics.
