Mike and Heath spend their 69th episode discussing camping in near freezing temperatures, the merits of the Halloween films, when exactly the Caretaker was introduced in Ghost Rider, and then get all serious and sad about the economy right before the end. They hope that the song “Scooby Doo” by Baron Von Lichtenstein that they found on the Podsafe Music Network cheers you back up.
Eric Martin (The Question) joins us for an episode about building muppets, eating nachos, and watching a few scary movies. Happy Halloween!
Features the song “Yoda Gets Laid” by Time Warrior from the Podsafe Music Network.
One of the drawbacks to having multiple podcasts is the higher possibility for error when posting them to the server or the RSS feed. Yesterday’s upload of Indie Comic Book Noise was incomplete and I didn’t catch it until today. So you will have to redownload yesterday’s show to get the missing 18 minutes.
Today, I uploaded the Halloween episode of Movie Noise to the server. I also mistakenly added it to the Comic Book Noise family feed. This isn’t a bonus episode like the time I put the Serenity review in the feed. It was just the product of doing too much at the same time. Listen to it anyway, it is me and Brian from Kryptographik talking in depth about Wolf Creek. I think it ranks as one of the best episodes I have done.
The guys are back from Charlotte and share their experiences and a couple of Independent Reading reviews of things they picked up along the way. The episode ends on a high note with a nearly-forgotten Wayback Review that includes the harshest review to date! All this and some talk about giving away comics instead of candy this Halloween.
