Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
30 days of TAH #2

Day two is all about the music!

I have to say, I have a massive weakness for Colonel Tick Tock’s theme. I loved the concept too, that they talked about in one of the behind the scenes episodes, about having this ludicrously long, grandiose theme and then having Craig Cackowski come on stage, do like, one thing, and then leave, only to be played out by a reprise of the same ridiculously long theme.

And of course, I love the Sparks Nevada theme, and am always sure to shout “POW” when I’m listening to it, or to at least silently mouth it if I’m on the bus.

As for my favourite song otherwise, I do love ‘Pour Me Another’ from ‘The Piano has Been Thinking’. Especially the bit where Croach sings. Just hearing Croach sing is like, the best thing ever. And really, what a nice voice! (It also helps that the reason he’s depressed is that he can’t fulfill his onus to Sparks, what with him having left with a lady. I mean, read into that what you will.)


Ashley Mackenzie: The Philosophical Illustrations

artist on Tumblr

Ashley Mackenzie tackles complex questions about the relationship between mind and body, creating conceptual, illustrative works that stand at the cross-section of the philosophy of the mind and neuroscience. “As our knowledge of the brain becomes more comprehensive, it seems like the idea of the soul exists only in the gaps of our understanding,” Mackenzie writes on her website. Bodies melt like pools of liquid in these placid, sparsely-detailed illustrations as they visualize the inner workings of the mind.

30 Days of TAH #1

Tell us how you got into The Thrilling Adventure Hour! 

I was just starting to get big into podcasts last summer, and a friend sort of casually mentioned it. I was already a fan of old radio serials, I used to listen to this fairytale one from the 40s when I was a kid that I had on cassette tape. At first my favorite segment was ‘Tales from the Black Lagoon’ and then ‘Moonshine Holler’, but as the show wore on I became increasingly addicted to ‘Sparks Nevada’. As soon as I heard ‘The Agony of the Feet’ I was hooked.

I really like the variety of segments they had early on in the show, Jefferson Reed, Moonshine and Tales. I definitely skipped ahead with Tales from the Black Lagoon, Ben Chapman’s voice was so adorable, and the Jimmy Stewart bit almost killed me. I really wished that story would come to a conclusion, it was great.


Written for an /r/writingprompts prompt: “Upon waking, you notice that you are soaked. How did this happen? What are the ramifications?” Sparks works on his emotional availability. It is gross. With thanks to clavally and justplainjennie for helping me figure out where to go with the latter half of it.


Added more clay to my muirin007 mask sculpt! And started the texturing, I still need to go in and do the more subtle textures like skin pores and such.

Being the anti-social secluded 17 year old I am, this will probably get done by tonight!

So I watched this movie last night and cried for an actual straight 20 minutes. And that’s not an exaggeration. Like, continuous tears. My eyes still hurt.
