A Geologic Fancast

February 13, 2008

Fancast coverartGeorge has very kindly posted the fancast that I mentioned earlier on his regular podcast feed.

My part in the production was very small, with that dynamo of niceness, the lovely CarrieP the main creative force behind it all, and a whole lot of content from a bunch of people with more creativity and skill than you could fit in a telephone booth. A big one.

It might not make much sense unless you are a listener of the Geologic Podcast. So if you’re not then then you should ignore this bloody well subscribe and then download the fancast.

You don’t get off the hook that easily.

Wil Wheaton audio

January 30, 2008


I think I now understand Phil Plait’s man crush. Wil Wheaton was just at the Pheonix Comicon and there is some audio of him performing an excerpt from his book Happiest Days of Our Lives, and his review of the Star Trek Next Generation episode Justice from TV Squad.

It just doesn’t end.

If you thought that this ten minutes of madness was frightening, Gawker is now hosting four new clips of the Jesus of Scientology.

Is it possible that is he actually as insane as he sounds?

Well, he talks like a lunatic, and he walks like a lunatic, so I guess you’ll have to draw your own conclusions.
