Show Notes

Shhhh. If you are quiet you can hear the pitter-patter of little zombie feet… It’s October! Todd Henry of Accidental Creative fame drops by and weaves a yarn of fear and terror, while the Smiths share stories of pod-people, trick-or-treat and aliens. Battlestar Galactica is still no longer on television, but Neil finds an out-of-this-world substitute. Finally, in Depeche Mode News we try to make some sense out of the band’s new video. PS – we can’t. With hair-raising tunes by Jonathan Coulton, Wax Tailor and The Wombats. Prepare to be thrilled and chilled! Or at the very least, slightly disconcerted.

    Neil sounded like Pee-wee Herman when he sang “Zombie”!

    Now that’s what I call scary! (I do love Pee Wee, but don’t want to live with him or anything.)

    loved the show you guys- the bit at the very end when you’re singing mari to bed gave me flashbacks of my own childhood- though my parents would’ve been singing something by neil young or bob dylan- but the sentiment was the same. it’s imperative to annoy the crap out of our kids before they’re old enough to move out of the house, isn’t it?

      Hi Divy! How goes the Hong Kong? Glad you enjoyed the show! We do our best to drive Mari nuts – we also love to roll down the car windows and sing “In Between Days” by the Cure. She loves that.
