ON PODCASTS AND INSTANT CLASSIC (UNRELATED)on March 30, 2009 at 6:39 am
Two things that I couldn't fit contextually with the giant blog post that preceded it, but I have more I need to talk about.
For SURE we will be talking about Monsters vs. Aliens because I know this is one of the rare movies that all three of us have seen before recording the show. So you know we're going to firing on all cylinders tonight!
We also gotten in the habit of reading listener questions on-air. We have a bunch of good questions for this week show and I'm really looking forward to answering them. If you'd like to have your question answered (it can be about movies, comics, whatever!) sent it to firstname.lastname@example.org. We WILL answer it!
The next thing I need to do is point your attention to another movie-themed web comic, Brian Carroll's Instant Classic. Specifically, his latest strip, titled "The Last Seven Hours." This comic is nothing short of brilliant. It's basically a musical number in web comic form.
44 panels in length, plotted and written within an inch of it's life, the comic is accompanied by a piano number written by Carroll and performed by three of his friends and the song is excellent.
I've known Brian for a few years. Our comics kind of came up around the same time. Stuff like this is where he really shines. It is unique, endearing and puts me to shame as a fellow artist.
I've always felt Brian's efforts were the classier affair between our two comics. If Theater Hopper were Milk Duds, Instant Classic would be a chocolate covered truffle.
You owe it to yourself to check it out. Tell 'im Milk Dud sentcha!
