    SILENCE! #293

    I’LL SAVE MY BREATH AND TAKE IT WITH ME, TIL A HUNDREN YEARS OR SO

    Blurbs. Does anyone actually read them? The Beast must Die created this format for the SILENCE! show notes and it has become a hated chore for whoever is unfortunate enough to be creating it. Am I just typing into a void? Tell you what, if you’re reading this, let us know by writing the secret phrase, “OH DEAR LORD MY GUTS ARE FULL OF SQUID!” and tweeting us, emailing to us or posting it on the Facebook page. Thanks.

    The Beast Must Die is back to save Christmas a full eight months early.

    The Beast has got naked and gone bathing in a world of eased restrictions, rubbing dusty old comics all over himself. Full report inside.

    Gary Lactus has a great new business idea.

    Come with us to Reviewniverse, with The Union, The Spiral Cage and 2000AD‘s Summer Offensive featuring Judge Dredd, Big Dave, Slaughter Bowl, Really and Truly and Maniac 5 of course.

    SILENCE! #292

    Broken partings making strange goodbyes. Hopeless cases with fake alibis

    This is your blurb. Deal with it, yeah?

    Get excited because this SILENCE! is a The Beast Must Die Solo Special! By that we mean The Beast is extremely busy and off on his own, working hard and, crucially, not appearing on this podcast.

    Nevertheless, Gary Lactus loves to party (alone in his car like sad, middle aged man who is wondering where it all went wrong) so he’s invited some top guests to fool around with and have a really great time.

    What’s that sound of creaking gears and whining servos? Why, it’s Spare 5 who, although not a real boy, has real things to say about David Lapham’s Silverfish and the film, Psycho II whilst Gary moans about superheroes in general.

    Douglas Noble comes along to talk about Pocket Chillers and Tarzan. Interesting to note that Douglas danced part of a 1980 Legs And Co routine continuously throughout recording. Of course, this is an audio-only presentation and doesn’t come accross when listening. Shame, he’s quite good.

    Maid Of Nails aka Kelly Kanayama sings some of her hits in between talk about Hellblazer: Royal Blood, Royalty, Amateur Demonology, Garth Ennis and A Walk Through Hell. Oh, and a Korean Drama which might be called Worlds Apart or something like that.

    Finally Tom Mortimer provides the weird, human cherry on top of this cocktail made from old, found booze which tastes surprisingly pleasant. I mean, this is mostly b******t but there’s some stuff about Blue And Green, Severed and Skrull Kill Crew in there.

    LISTEN!

    SILENCE! #291

    WELL THEY LOOK SO GOOD I WANNA EAT ‘EM, AND THEY TASTE SO GOOD i GET TO NEED ‘EM

    Okay, I want you to split into two teams. Now you guys are the red team, and you guys are team two. Now, everyone in the blue team needs to split up into teams of one and practice the trust exercises I showed you earlier. Team One, I want you to elect a leader then shout any ideas that come into your head at them. There’s no bad ideas here, brown sky thinking but you have to do this in complete silence. Okay, now I want the green team to split into two groups then those groups who will be Team A and Team Seven. Those teams then need to split in two once more and those groups split in two again and agin until everyone is in Team Blood Red And Bisected Lying Dead On The Floor. I’m off to the staff room to watch pornography. And Richard? You write the blurb.

    They said it could easily be done and they were right! It’s SILENCE! #291!

    Gary Lactus and The Beast Must Die have both got into separate scrapes recently. Listen to them tell you all about it in the new feature, SILENCE! Because The Internet’s A Prick!

    SILENCE! (Because The Film’s Started). The Beast Must Die has seen a film and that film Justice League, The Snyder Cut.

    Gary Lactus is now doing commissions so get in touch with him as he needs the money.

    Come with us to Reviewniverse, with Pssst!, Kiss Of death by John Watkiss, The Eternals and Darker Image of course!

Paul Mirek ,

It’s good, guys

It’s a good thing this is the only comics podcast because it’s also the best.

Your new best audio pals

Are you a tired parent with no time to read comics? (Bonus points if you’re also an indie comics creator squeezing drawing time in between cat attacks, baby cries, and violent crashes into passersby because you were live-podcasting while walking down the street.) If so, you should probably increase your vitamin intake. And then you should listen to SILENCE!, the lifestyle magazine just for mutants like you (and me). You’ll learn about wonderful comics and comics creators both new and old. Aw, just give it a listen already. Drokk!

The Colour 12 ,

Best Cat Podast Around

These guys put together what is simply the best cat-focused podcast for cat lovers avalable on the nets. Althought they do have a tendancy to get a bit distracted and go off on tangents about comic books and supermans, DO NOT be fooled: this is a very serious show about two men and their feline companions. Keep up the good work boys, and keep on throwing that crumpled up receipt called life.
