Me and Omega have ourselves a podcast! And we talk about… Lesbian stuff like Elf on the Shelf. And Steven King.

Yeah, Omega, you’re the best kind of lesbian, you don’t need to worry.
And I’d LOVE to hear Hagan take down TERFs, they don’t get called out enough…
oh, and I’m lucky enough to live in Alan Grayson’s sate.
Oregon’s pretty awesome (although I wish we could make as much progress with marijuana and gay marriage as the guys just north of us have.)
Rule 34 is “If it exists, there is porn of if” and Rule 63 is genderswap. I know that off the top of my head because.. Anyway, I really liked this episode. It had a good mix of serious and less serious topics and it’s always a highlight when Omega talks about her childhood!
I hope Omega talks about the botulism that is supposed to found in King William Island on her talk about the Franklin Expedition
You know it! Goldner was a scam artist and I believe his substandard rations share as much of the blame for the tragedy as the Little Ice Age does for the pack ice blocking the channels. It also accounts for the early high mortality among officers; they got more of the canned rations than the crew.
As I understand Goldner’s original factory in Mile End was too small for the order in the time stated in the contract so he opened a second factory with completely unskilled workers. It give off the feeling that it was a collusion of small things that while testing could have been over come, but all together sealed there fate .
Another problem with adapting Stephen King is that he has a talent for making the most absurd things sound absolutely scary; my sister still freaks out over “The Moving Finger” from Nightmares and Dreamscapes, but I have a feeling if it had made it into the TV adaptation, a multi-jointed finger coming out of the drain would have just looked silly. Darabont may be talented, but part of the reason he’s done so well with King’s material is likely due to his playing it smart when choosing which stories to adapt.
Thoroughly enjoyed hearing another round of UK vs. US: Grammar Edition. In all due fairness, though, if the English language made any goddamn sense, “borough” would be pronounced “bor-ruff.” So… it’s a tie, then?
That story was the scariest in the entire collection and you’re right, there’s really no good way to do it justice visually. Same with the one about the wind-up toy chomping teeth.
The Hunger Games, Battle Royale, and The Running Man: all sharing the “televised death match” theme. The first version of this genre I can remember is the film “Death Race 2000″ (1975).
I recommend seeing this at least once (if you haven’t already.) It’s enjoyable as a sci-fi/action movie as well as a satirical dark comedy.
Though they can *all* be traced back to The Most Dangeous game, I guess.
The story about the black elf-on-the-shelf reminds me of a story someone told me:
He worked at a Toys R Us, and at the time, there was a line of action figures based on historical military men. One of these Tuskegee Airman (the segregated African-American aviators from WW2).
One day a customer approached him asking for a *white* Tuskegee Airman, and I quote…”All the ones you got here are all n****rs.”
