No Regular SILENCE! this week. We were all too stunned by the news that Rita Ora will be replacing Tyra Banks on America’s Next Top Model. Surely Rita can’t reach the preposterous heights of self importance that Tyra managed. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

Instead we have the first SILENCE! Prestige Format, the special collector’s edition podcasts which was made available to C Unit Patreontologists back in January of this year. This is a nice chat between The Beast Must Die, Gary Lactus and Clark Burscough.

Named after the last son of Krypton, Clark is the assistant director of the Thought Bubble. We talk about many things including the broken reading experience,
The Amalgam Universe, his origins as a comics reader and Thought Bubble via the dad we all want, Invisibles, Grant Morrison, Marvel’s Doctor Who comics, 2000AD comics, comics comics, comics comics comics, the Thought Bubble party, his writing and Beef Ho Fun amongst many other things.

Do please enjoy.

OH YOU HEADLESS CHICKEN, CAN THOSE POOR TEETH TAKE SO MUCH KICKING? Are you a magician? Because whenever I look at you, every other podcast disappears and stops downloading. I’m not a photographer, but I can picture me and you together recording a podcast. Are you an interior decorator? Because when I saw you, the entire room became beautiful and full of amazing pod-content. Are you a camera? Because every time I look at you, I smile and leave a comment in the comments. Did you sit in a pile of sugar? Cause you have a pretty sweet ass. PODC-ASS-T THAT IS AMIRIGHT?? It’s the two! Back again! It seems like just a week since their dulcet tones were here speaking truthisms and dropping raw wisdom. But nonetheless here we are. It’s A Gray Cult. It’s A Stagy Curl. It’s Cry At A Slug. It’s Gary Lactus. It’s Atheists Be Muted. It’s Ambushed Tie Test. It’s Headsets Tub Time. It’s The Beast Must Die. It’s Ice Lens. It’s License. It’s SILENCE! There’s an extended admin/sponsorship session with recollections of Small Press Day 2016 at Dave’s Comics, Gosh Comics and Orbital Comics. Plus The Beast Must Die talks about Cerebus Again. Reviewniverse time for boils and goils. Talk turns to Tales of The Wedding Present, Batman, Dark Knight III, Jupiter’s Legacy, Justice League Rebirth, Paper Girls and more. So come on dive in…the water’s lovely. And full of comics. @silencepod @frasergeesin @thebeastmustdie @bobsymindless silencepodcast@gmail.com You can support us using Patreon if you like.

RECORD COMPANY MAN, I WON’T BE COMING TO DINNER Imagine a blurb. A blurb like you’ve never seen. A golden, beautiful blurb that shines like the sun. A blurb that glistens like dew on morning grass. A blurb that sings like the strike of a tuning fork against an angel’s backside. Imagine a blurb like that. That blurb is here. Can you taste it? It’s the return of The Beast Must Die, joining Gary Lactus for another ker-lassic episode of SILENCE! But wait! What’s this? It’s also a Bobsy episode! A Bobs-isode! There’s some admin and a whole load of My Two Dads chat. Of course. And some self-promotion for the our sister and brother podcasts Diane and The Earth-Pig Diaries. And news of our various appearances at Small Press Day 2016 Three men in a Reviewniverse? It’s a king-size edition with more digressions than you can shake a fully painted graphic novel at. Transformers Vs GI Joe, 4 Kids Walk into a Bank, The Sweetness, Detective Comics, Providence, Beverley Hills Cop II, Bill Sienkiewicz, Midnight of the Soul, All New Avengers, Captain America, Captain Brexit, Sean Phillips, John Smith, Sexy Male Comics Creator Top Trumps, The Sound of Drowning and a whole lot more.

FOR THE RIGHT TO BE GOVERNED, WASTE THEM WITHOUT MERCY As our (pretend) close personal confidant Luke Haines will tell you, “it’s not for God’s love/ it’s not for cocaine,” which are the only two extremes on the religion-80s drugs scale. Of course it’s not, you dirty heathens! It’s for COMICS. All-inclusive SILENCE!, the comics podcast that makes you listen to ladies etc sometimes. Gary Lactus is joined by emergency guest Maid of Nails all the way from the Razor House in darkest Caledonia, who like any other Strong Female Character can talk massive amounts of shit just like Them Goize. Comedy, maternal pop culture reviews, we’ve got it all. Find out whose mother really wants to hear more about the Ents, and exactly how to catch Gary Lactus’ comedy show in London. The Reviewniverse spawns chat of Judge Dredd, 2000AD, Wolverine Goes To Japan On His Gap Year, Nighthawk, Bitch Planet, Civil War II, The Ultimates, Wicked And Divine, Wonder Woman, Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur, Auaman, Punisher, All Star Section 8 and some talk of the Preacher TV show thing.

He had tried so hard. He had tried harder than any man had ever tried. All he wanted was to be the best at the thing he had trained for so long to best at. The thing he was born to be really good at. It was the only thing he cared about, his reason for living. It was the only thing anyone cared about. The world expected him to be the best there ever was or ever would be at the thing. The weight of the world pushed down on his shoulders as it now looked like he might not be the best at doing a thing. He couldn’t let this happen so he clenched his teeth, making his jaw muscles bulge in and out then he punched a locker and went on to become the best there is at doing the thing. Every day was like this for Tom Cruise.

Right, so this is SILENCE! #190 in which The Beast Must Die had to run off at the last minute for a very important and highly paid assassination leaving Gary Lactus to ask twitter for co hosts. He found:

Johnathan Dick, a nice chap from Virginia who talked Nick Spencer’s Steve Rogers Captain America #1 with Gary.

Al Kennedy from House To Astonish who talked DC Rebirth and Baker Street Peculiars.

The pair of them saved the day really so HOORAY FOR THEM!

WALKING ON THE SIDEWALK, HOTTER THAN A MATCH-HEAD They took his family…they took his kids… they took his shoes… and his dinner. And they punched his dog. And slapped his goldfish. Then they finally took one thing too far. They took his podcast. Now, this cop-on-the edge, who doesn’t play by the rules, is telling his uptight boss where to get off, and doing things his way. With the help of his two best friends Right Fist and Left Fist, and his two older friend who he has a slightly strained relationship with, his Boots. He’s taking the law between his teeth and riding it like a pony with a lovely shiny mane. He’s come for justice and he’s doing it his way. He’s doing it… …IN SILENCE! The two! The two are back! After being marooned across opposite sides of the mirror-verse Gary Lactus & The Beast Must Die are here to bring you a classic slice of podcastery, talking up a comics sized, fully painted, foil-enhanced storm. Sponsorship? Sure why not – I’ll take two! Plus a bit of admin on the side. Full steam ahead! We’re heading for the Reviewniverse hand in hand, our larynx’s humming in harmony. The Beast talks up Tillie Walden’s The End Of Summer, then it’s on to Civil War II, Astonishing Ant Man, Future Quest, Josh Brayer’s Theth, Raymond Pettibon, Tank Girl: Two Girls One Tank, and so very much mooooooore! A bit of Backmin, with more info on The Earth-Pig Diaries and then we scoot off into the night. Kisses! @silencepod @frasergeesin @thebeastmustdie @bobsymindless silencepodcast@gmail.com You can support us using Patreonif you like.

SHAKE IT UP IS ALL THAT WE KNOW, USING BODIES UP AS WE GO Behold!The podcast of TWO WORLDS! Yes tasty little mortals it’s an episode of SILENCE! where our two star-crossed (comics) lovers are separated by the triple threats of time, space and curry! On one world we have Gary Lactus, trapped in a hell of his own making – on another world The Beast Must Die is trapped in a heaven of his own partaking! That’s right, it’s two solo-casts sellotaped together to make one shambling hybrid giant podcast. So let’s double down for a two-way switcheroo and get ready for the Crisis on Two Podcasts! Gary tackles some sadmin with news of Darwyn Cooke’s passing. But there’s some gladmin with tales of Alan Moore in the flesh. Then he mournfully slides into the Reviewniverse for All New Different Avengers, The Ultimates, The Vision and Batman. The world flip reverses and we’re into… The Beast takes over, and there’s more sadmin for Darwyn Cooke. Then it’s a jaunty polevault into The Reviewniverse to take a squirt at Grant Morrison’s Heavy Metal, Criminal 10th Anniversary special, DKIII, the end of Huck, The Vision, and Beasts of Burden. and what, pray tell, is The Earth Pig Chronicles? Find out here. So prepare to have your mind sliced up like a cheesecake and served up to your eyes…It’s SILENCE! @silencepod @frasergeesin @thebeastmustdie @bobsymindlessYou can support us using Patreonif you like.
