Back from the dead, to eat your head!
The funniest thing happened to me yesterday: I woke up and realized that we had forgotten to podcast for six months. Oops!
So, um....yeah. What's been going on?
Yes! There IS a new show!
But I can't get the damn thing up! I swear, every time I try to use this thing, something crashes or refuses to open and I have to ask Tom to spend 2 hours of his free time to get the friggin' thing up!
No wonder I quit podcasting.…

Re: Re: Re: READY THE PITCHFORKS---LUCAS DESTROYING OUR CHILDHOOD AGAIN
You all know me, DArkLOrdS3phr0th, and I figured quite a few of you naves have held off on making a judgement call re: the new OT Star Wars DVD releases until I weighed in on the subject. Well folks, buckle up, because it's going to be a bumpy ride.... Am I excited or not about this development? Yes....and no......â€¢sighsâ€¢ â€¢takes deep breathâ€¢
Let me start with a little personal background. I am not an old man by any means. But in my nearly 21 years, I've developed what you might call a sage's perspective on the Star Wars Original Trilogy. There are certain, unalienable tenets of the OT that must be adhered to for the flicks to have any cultural relevancy whatsoever. And most of you agree that I have perhaps the definitive handle on those traits which make SW what it is. Those commandments are as follows:
1.) Han shoots first. End of discussion. This is, and will for ever be the most important point when it comes to comparing the OT with Lucas's bastard offspring SEs. As they have before, my critics will come at me again, tearing down my arguments because I can't "get over the greedo thing" or I need to "get a life". Folks, the entire OT hero construct rests on the fact that Solo is a badass. Period. Haters need to get over the fact that the OT is dark...maybe darker that many of you want to admit. This is a dangerous place, and no amount of preschool-coddling CGI will change that fact. (As an aside, I must admit that this issue really hits home for me in a personal way. In junior high school I was faced with a very similar situation in which I was man enough to strike first at a bully and was generally successful at fending him off for a while. So I think I have a pretty good handle on the Solo character and what makes him tick. Those who know me also say Han and I share a rogue-ish quality considered attractive by ladies)
2.) The SW universe is a dirty place. Lucas and his Photoshop happy CG monkeys have turned what was a gritty and realistic wasteland into Six Flags for cripe's sake. RESPECT THE PRODUCTION DESIGN AND WORK OF THE ORIGINAL TECHNICIANS. Do I really need to keep on this? (And while I'm complaining, what's up with Lucas dumping the old laserdisc masters onto a dvd and calling it a day? Surely in his piles of millions he can find a few bucks to scrub the dirt off the transfer and maybe take out a matte line or two. Is that too much to ask? Oh, that's right. I forgot. I have spent my life defending the OT against all attackers but since I am just a "fanboy" my opinion doesn't count. Also, why no 5.1 mix? Laziness and greed, friends.)
3.) Lapti Nek. Ab queck zenick fesi/Jup col im in na hiz jal, ooh. If you don't know what that means, why are you reading this forum?
Look, this isn't rocket science. Give us what we want. The originals, as they appeared in theaters, without your revisionist bullstuff.
That being said, will I be at Wal-Mart at 12:01 to buy the OT DVDs? Yes. Will they be definitive? Until Lucas finally gets off his a$$ and delivers the OT on HD-DVD, I guess. How long do we have to wait for that one, George?
And now, having cleared this up, this discussion is over. I will fade into the background and watch how this thread evolves from here. Hopefully, many of you will read and really THINK about what I am saying here and we can avoid rehashing this issue in the future.

Happy 3rd of July, muckafos! We finally figured out a way to distract the retarded guard at Ourmedia and then sprinted past him at high speed, diving through the plateglass windows of the Internet Archive and finally landing in a super cool action movie roll-pose to deliver you this two fisted gun barrel of internet mp3 justice.
Download Episode 46 or die in a blaze of hot lead!
p.s. this episode is rated PG-13 for some language and nonstop mild peril.…
We have a piping hot new show to ship to you as soon as our server stops treating us like children. Everytime I try to upload our file, it gives me that silent "I'm not going to say anything for awhile and look pained that you asked me that so you think I'm giving serious thought to your request...that way it doesn't seem completely unreasonable when I say 'no' then suggest you go play with your brother" treatment for about 10 minutes then I get one of the following responses:
"select a valid file"
"an error has occurred"
"clean your room"
"ask your father"
...ugh...at least I don't have to go play hide-and-seek with Captain Poor Sport.…

Episode 45 - Do you speak Jazz?
In this episode we channel a Spanasian talk show, a public radio personality, and exploit Tom's irrefutable knack for creating songs that kill healthy brain tissue.
Grab your noise-canceling headphones, a helmet, a mouth guard, and your dog's seizure medication and plug in to death by garageband…

Porcuponics is back in the saddle with Episode 44: Spelling Sucks! Why did we call it Spelling Sucks? Cause Spellling Sucks!

Episode 43 - goin' it solo
Well, it's been a month so y'all deserve a little something special!
I'll let you know when we come up with something.
In the interim, please download my solo attempt at filling the void.
If you don't laugh aloud at the content contained within, you're sure to get a chuckle out of the fact that it took me a full two weeks to put the thing together...and I still had some help from Tom in fixing a few audio issues (special thanks for that by the way, dear).

Episode 41: Peach Cobbler Days
I'm gonna blame the lack of a show last week on Daylight Savings TIme. What a joke that is. Right now I'm reading this crappy little marketing thing we got in the mail from Huggies. It's called the Huggies Cleanteam! Staring me in the face is Freddy the Flamingo, a little pink beaked thing that looks like a cross between a candy cane and a tampon. Apparently, Freddy and his friends are gonna make Laura want to get potty trained. I got news for ya Huggy: it ain't happening. Here are some of Freddy's vitals:
Quote: "Full Clean Ahead!"
Philosophy: All's well that ends well".
Likes: Happy endings. Moisture. Cleanliness.
Vacations in: Bankok
Ok, I made that last one up. Anyway, here's yer show.
Spring Forward Sucks!…
