Most of you will understand what I mean when I say that Friday was a very important day. For those of you who don't, it was an important day because the two most recurrent of my recurrent projects became available to all and sundry on the internet. Duh.
The first was the latest episode of Taiwan Noir, the podcast that I do with a charming Swedish gentlemen named Kenny B. With this latest installment, Kenny and I again try to keep things accessible by focusing on plagiarized Taiwanese kaiju films that feature cut and pasted material from better known Japanese titles--in this case, Mars Men and Superriders Against the Devils. You can download or stream the episode here.
The second was the archived version of the latest episode of Pop Offensive, which will be the last episode on which my old friend Jeff Heyman will appear for a few months. I believe he's going to pursue solo fame with a spinoff series titled Heyman! In any case, I will be continuing the show with a parade of guest co-hosts until his return. In the meantime, this latest ep serves as a pleasantly percolating "so long" to our old buddy, brimming over with pure pop perfection. You can stream it here. And if you need further convincing, you can read the complete playlist for the episode on the Pop Offensive Facebook Page.
