Gordy Tells Justin Comics [Episode 24] : Double Stilt Football


If everything just feels right in the world to you today, it’s probably in no small part to this podcast and the heavy focus on Stilt-Man. You didn’t know you loved the world’s most obvious, high-tech peeping tom in history, but now you do. Know what else you probably love? Erotic mutant fan fiction. Just don’t read too much of it or you’ll end up face to face with Mephisto some day! Just kidding, never stop. Oh, and we dance around The Punisher for a bit, but as we all know, all roads lead back to Stilt-Man.

Also! HD sniffing, Bog McFarlane, NFL SuperPro 2.0 featuring Christian Okoye, NASCAR villains, and the mysteries surrounding the spooooky number 23.

Ever wondered who would win in a hug-off between Venom and The Vision? Or Rogue and Mr. Fantastic? Well wonder no more, weirdos, as we go through the Marvel Hugs bracket and figure it all out. When the dust settles the boys hug one another in triumph and relief, only to then start fist fighting over who hugs the best between them and how many arms are required for maximum comfort. Next week – DC!

Bishop also gets talked about a bit this eppy, but the time travel aspect to his whole deal means we don’t get very far. And we had to check in with Paste-Pot Pete, so they ate up some of his time. PLUS! The non-magical Wizard tries to wrangle Carnage, Forge goes insane, an axe man seeks redemption in the woods, and designer prison camp tattoos. Hug it out!

Gordy Tells Justin Comics [Episode 13] – The Gems of Vanderscootch Abbernathy


Who can stop the Juggernaut?! Nobody! Well, Onslaught can and did. And Spider-Man…kinda. And The Hulk. OK, so maybe a bunch of people can stop him. But not for long! The boys go over some of the shell head’s greatest hits and greatest push-ups this eppy. Then they move on to the Onslaught Saga, Marvel’s big time crossover event from the late 90s. How many hugs does it take to convince Franklin Richards to make a new world? Is Dr. Strange capable of leaving even a single gem or crystal in the Marvel Universe unmolested? Can one Goblin truly make a difference? The answers are within.

Not to mention! Loyal listener Matt faces his greatest foe, Billy in the parks doing recreations, Gordy’s nicotine naps, Fuberbatch Undercum, Coaxial Abberscratch, Collapsable Ubersnatch, and Benescoops Cumbersnacks. By the Oily Eye of Abbernathy, you don’t wanna miss this!

Dying Light Is an Asthma Simulator

DyingLight-ArtMost of my friends don’t know about my asthma. It’s never been something that I complain about, and it hasn’t been particularly restricting to my athletic abilities. That probably has something to do with the fact that I play more video games than basketball, but my point stands.

Even though my brand of asthma has never left me in a wheezing puddle on the soccer field, it’s something that’s with me all the time, advising the kinds of decisions that I make. It’s a little voice in the back of my head that encourages me to take the elevator or avoid the outdoors during allergy season. Some people might call this laziness; I call it asthma.

Dying Light is a Different Kind of Zombie Game. So, Why Does It Feel So Generic?

DyingLight - Zombie PunchPsychologists call it “exposure therapy.” When a patient suffers from a debilitating form of anxiety, some therapists will repeatedly expose him or her to the fear-inducing stimuli. Obviously, no one is ever in danger, so the process allows the patient to recontextualize their anxiety and extinguish the fear.

For example, if you were afraid of household appliances, which is an actual disorder called Oikophobia, a psychologist might ask you to do a load of laundry or microwave a bowl of oatmeal. After a number of treatments, you’d eventually realize that appliances aren’t very scary. [Read more…]

Gordy Tells Justin Comics [Episode 09] – Angels and Assholes


Je Suis, Charlie! Welcome to the first international episode of Gordy Tells Justin Comics! This week we cover the best (and worst) of French comics, starting and ending with the man, the legend, the kook…Alejandro Jodorowsky. Things start out super nice, then turn super odd as the boys get into the thick of Jodo’s magnum opus — The Holy Mountain. From there they hit up his iconic comic work with Moebius, Metabarons, which turns out to be mostly just a batshit re-imagining of Dune coated in brutal insanity. A guy fills himself with bombs, has sex with his mom, blows his kid’s head off, and then things get REALLY weird. There are no Angels in the outfield of space.

Also this eppy – North Korean shadow people, Justin’s flawless Seth Rogen impression, King Okoye, senior sinners on the loose, and What Would Snake Eyes Do? So come on in and let us spit…just a little…in your mouth…

[Comic] Robot Wisdom : Bathrooms

I don’t know about you, but I’m getting really tired of people chatting me up in the bathroom. I have a strict no-talking policy when my pants are unzipped. And, yes, that rule applies to every pantsless situation that I find myself in.

Listen to the robot, people. He knows what he’s talking about.

The bathroom is a place of serious business. #comics #geekparty #comicstrips #robots #robotwisdom
