I don't have anything for you today, though I am currently tinkering with a couple of things that might end up being postable.
But neither of those are ready yet, so or today I'll have to just point you towards a new episode of Consider the Ray Gun, the strand of WWA in which Daniel chats with someone about a book.
This week it's Kit rejoining Daniel for a conversation about the early Richard Bachman (Stephen King) novel The Long Walk. Listen/download here.
It's every bit as good as their recent episode on Ender's Game.
CtRG started as part of Oi! Spaceman, so previous episodes can be found here.
Happy New Year all.

Nice new bit of audio content for you today, mainly on the subject of guys called Orson.
From the Wrong With Authority stable, a commentary track for Orson Welles' undervalued late masterpiece F for Fake, featuring myself and Daniel Harper. Download or listen HERE.
This commentary is basically a spin-off from an episode of They Must Be Destroyed on Sight in which I guested to chat about the same film - here. TMBDOS also recently did an episode on Welles' finally-completed final film, The Other Side of the Wind, here.
Plus, we recently released a podcast in which Daniel and Kit chatted about Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game, and somehow managed to find new angles on it, despite it being one of the most discussed texts on the internet. Download or listen HERE.
Also, if you haven't listened to the Wrong With Authority's third 'Trumpism' episode, recorded after the mid-terms, but feel like subjecting yourself to five hours of our self-therapy, that's here.
On the subject of Wrong With Authority, we still have two great new episodes in the can, being edited, and slated to be released soon (hopefully). ...

This month, the Shabogan Graffiti Podcast sinks happily into a morass of bile and spleen.
I'm joined by the wonderful Holly B
- star of the City of the Dead
podcast, Pex Lives guest appearances
and her own blog
- for a gargantuan complaining session, an epic voyage into annoyance that goes on for so long I had to split it into two parts. Hate is fertile ground.
Download or listen to Part 1 here
and Part 2 here
In Part 1 we cover Doctor Who
that we detest. We both choose victims from both classic and new Who
In Part 2 we move on to non-Who
hates and lambast and villify a movie each (two of the most popular, lauded and loved movies of recent years as it happens - ha!). We round things off by indulging in rants about pet hates. I go for a soft target, Holly for a tougher one.
No clues. You have to listen.
Proud of this one. Lots of fun to record and (I hope) listen to. And much credit must go to Holly who not only came up with the idea for the episode but also ...

What bloody man is that? It's bloody Jack Graham. Again.
The curtain rises on Shabcast 8. Listen and/or download here
Another Shabcast so soon? Yes, but don't get used to this kind of schedule. It's only happening because time is out of joint.
This time, myself and my actorly buddy Elliot Chapman
(returning guest from the Macra shabcast
, and Big Finish's new Ben Jackson
) discuss Shakespeare's great tragedy 'Macbeth' (we only shabcast about things that begin with 'mac'), and Shakespeare generally. We even say the word 'Macbeth' occasionally... hopefully without bringing too much theatrical ill-luck down upon ourselves. We chat as we watch the TV film of Trevor Nunn's legendary production from 1978, starring Ian McKellen and Judi Dench, and produced by Verity Lambert. The second most profound material she ever televised.
Elliot will be appearing in a production of 'Macbeth' soon to run in Redcliffe Caves in Bristol
, produced by Insane Root
as part of the Bristol Shakespeare Festival. Jack will be appearing in the kitchen soon to make himself an evil sandwich as part of a obscene, perverse ritual. Root for us insanely, and download our shabcast.
When shall ...

"[T]he speaking of language is part of an activity, or a form of life."

Today is the 150th anniversary of the origins of Alice in Wonderland
. A century-and-a-half ago today, Lewis Carroll took a boat trip with the Liddell family, and told the children a story. Alice Liddell asked him to write it down. He started the next day.
To celebrate, follow me down the rabbit hole and listen to Shabcast 7 - here
A special one, this. I'm once again joined by Josh Marsfelder (of Vaka Rangi
) and for the first time by the wonderful Jane
of many fames. We watch (and chat about) the neglected 1966 Jonathan Miller TV version of Alice in Wonderland.
A forgotten masterpiece. Well, maybe not forgotten... but not exactly remembered either.
This podcast had various titles before I settled on my final choice: 'Alice Narrates Herself'. It was going to be called 'Cobwebs on the Tea Urn', then 'Mock Turtles all the Way Down', then 'Pig Latin'... I even toyed with a facile but amusing 'Shabcast Madness Returns'. I eventually settled on a title which reflected something myself and my ...

Yet more audio news, listeners.
This time I'm a guest on the lovely, cuddly, clued-up Oi! Spaceman podcast
, hosted by married couple Daniel Harper
and Shana Wolstein
's my episode.
We discuss the Big Finish cyber-masterpiece 'Spare Parts' by Marc Platt, and loads of other stuff including Cybermen in general, emotion in drama, capitalism, communism and fascism...
I know, it sounds a bit dry, but we also do loads of nerdy chatting about Doctor Who
, and there's plenty of mucking about and giggling. Also, I receive my first ever aural blowjob.
Shana and Daniel have a great podcast going (I've been enjoying their back catalogue and its been a blast) and I was honoured to be asked on. I had a great time, and I think you will too if you lend us your ears. Your spare ones will do.

' this time.
Oh your lucky, lucky ears.

In other audio news, Holly B
of Comfortable Bohemian Elegance
has begun a new podcasting project, City of the Dead
, which will cover all the Amicus films. She's accompanied by James Murphy
of Pex Lives
's episode one, covering the movie City of the Dead
(AKA Horror Hotel
) which features the late Christopher Lee
. It's a funny and thoughtful first episode, and the series looks well worth following.
It's really nice to see tabs like 'City of the Dead' and 'Eruditorum' and (of course) 'Shabcasts' appearing down the side of the Pex Lives Libsyn page
and James really are generous and encouraging coves who are coaxing great content out of great people... and even some passable content out of me! Long may they continue.
