Top Five:  Books for Kids

Sorry.  We just pulled up.  We ran out of super fuel.  But we found some more and got a free commemorative glass for our troubles.

Not THESE commemorative glasses.  We WISH!

Not THESE commemorative glasses. We WISH!

In this heartwarming episode of the Earth 603 podcast, we talk about stuff.  And things.  And comic books that would be appropriate for kids.  Well, Zach does.  As usual, Stu can’t help slipping in some sort of GWAR meets Sex Pistols OGN that’s OOP from Paraguay.  (As he does.)

SPEAKING of ridiculously cool music from Disney Afternoon video game adaptations – we’re still putting a megaton of our megabucks on the fact that the music from the Moon stage of the Ducktales video game might be some of the best music ever written.  Not just the best video game music – oh, no! – the best MUSIC.  We know, we know – you’ve already jump-started your electric naysaying rod.  WELL STOP!  Just for one god-blasted minute!  Take a listen before you cast the first duck-based stone!

Eh?

EH?

Not too shabby, EHHHH?

Well.  We don’t want to get in your way of listening to this week’s podcast, so let’s wrap things up, YOU KNOW?

It's UNANIMOUS!  ALL TWO OF the EARTH 603 OFFICIAL SCIENCE PANEL AGREES:  Manhattan Projects #9 is the BOOK OF THE WEEK . . . Well, Book of LAST WEEK.  It's the BOOK OF LAST WEEK!

It’s UNANIMOUS! ALL TWO OF the EARTH 603 OFFICIAL SCIENCE PANEL AGREES: Manhattan Projects #9 is the BOOK OF THE WEEK . . . Well, Book of LAST WEEK.
It’s the BOOK OF LAST WEEK!

Guess what book WASN’T the Book of Last Week?

THIS BOOK!

THIS BOOK!

Ok, ok – you’ve paid your penance.  Proceed to the aural equivalent of Duckburg:  Earth 603 Episode #31

Top Five:  Party Animals

Do you remember when you first turned 30?  Maybe it was 100 years ago.  Maybe you traveled forward in time and watched your own birthday bbbq from the birch tree rafters.*  Maybe you celebrated by making a last stand against the Rot?  Maybe your blew out your candles after your killed your satanic father in a trance?  (Cliche, we know.)  Did the big 3-0 take place with a sexy shapeshifter?  (Cliche, we WISH.)  Or did you say goodbye to your twenties after you mindwiped a goddamned SENTINEL OF LIBERTY?!  WELL?!  DID YOU?!  Because if you DID – if you can sit there in your mauve wicker chair (and don’t think we didn’t notice how it clashes with your burnt l’orange!) – you have some serious, serious, SERIOUS explaining to do.  Or don’t.  We don’t care.  We’re already back in the timestream noodlin’ for hornpout.  It’s Mardi Gras!  What did you expect?!

* – The extra, “b” is for, “byobb”.**

** – The extra, “b” is a typo.
