Episode LX - Bring Me the Head of Sergio Aragones

As the midsummer heat continues to bare down upon our welcoming sweat glands, most of us can't help but think about our sweatier cousins to the south, los Mexicanos. For this special "Heat Scorching" episode, the comic book haters take a look at Mexico's favorite hijo (by way of Spain), Sergio Aragones. Give a quick listen, won't you? It's the least we can do to help out our president's worthwhile "Open Border" project. What the hell was that called, and was it a good or bad idea? Heatstroke might prevent us from offering up an easy answer, but perhaps a click onto our latest podcast will reveal all that you seek.

I'd pitch in money to force Schooly G to read that Hate book, but I haven't read it myself.

I should pay myself to read it first.

Anonymous #4, Umbrellaman will give you two cases of beer if you read it. That, and you need to lick his nutsack. This last part is optional.

Well, the beer sounds good. But the other part makes me wary of ever reading this "great" book you recommend. Ever!

I think Schooly should post the list of the last 10 books he has read, so we can all marvel at what a grown-up big boy he is. I think the last book report we had was, what was it, the Stephen King cell-phone-zombies book, right? What other highbrow literary ventures should we look forward to when we grow up?

Damn. Speaking of "Not worth my time"- I want the five minutes back that I spent listening to everyone try to get Schooly to read that fucking book. Don't you know it would cut into his museum-going time?

"What other highbrow literary ventures should we look forward to when we grow up?"

Well, if you're spending most of your time reading funnybooks, listening to our shitty podcast, and responding on our blog, I doubt you'll have much time left for your Star Trek marathons, Cosplay conventions, or Dr. Who reunion specials let alone reading big-boy books.

But I'll give you a leg up on your funnybook brethren:
Frankenstein is the doctor, not the monster.

Piggy dies and so does Simon.

And that weird looking chick in The Crying Game was really a dude.

Thanks for listening!

Schooly:

I got the "Frankenstein Meets the Wolfman" reference, and the "American Idol" one, but what's the third one referring to?

The real reason Schooly won't read the book is because he's afraid he might like it. And that would take him down a whole peg. I have read the Bradley's and I didn't like it, but even knowing I wouldn't like it I would still read it for 2 cases of beer.

I don't have anything to chip in. But I'm thinking about buying Umbrellaman a gun.

I don't read any comics at all.

I only post here 'cause I'm a latchkey child and I need something to entertain me after school until mom get's home from the shoe factory.

Would you throw the latchkey into the Schooly fund? Let me know...

No, but Mom beings home plenty of shoes that have been rejected by the factory. And sometimes she brings home strange men and sometimes animals.

You can have any of those.

I think Schooly just hit on an "emperor has no clothes" nerve. Hate is one of those nerd one-ups-manship titles that nerds throw around at each other despite the fact that it really is boring. This is common to comic nerds and music nerds- but with music it's bands like Blur and Belle and Sebastian. No one listen to that shit because they think it's good. Someone told them it was cool and no one wants to be left out and thought to be uncool. Pitiful.

I'm no Schooly fan, but at least he's not one of the drones.

PS- i posted this earlier but it didn't show up- sorry if i double post!

So let's see--

For literature, so far Schooly has named something out of the 8th grade lesson plan, one off of the 9th grade summer reading list and a movie he saw once. Are you still doing that thing where you get a certificate for a free individual Pizza Hut pizza for every book you finish? Or is this all SAT prep?

Hey guys,

Just finished listening to a few of your podcasts but i felt i had to comment on this one.

I wont be subscribing to your podcast anytime soon but no hard feelings, i just dont like hate. Maybe its the optomist in me that feels that way but i felt what you guys said about mexicans was ignorant and racist even if it was in jest. Im not going to insult you or try to convince you that you are wrong. Let people belive what they belive, even if they are wrong.

Im sure you have found a nitch in the podcasting world and good luck with that but i wont be there.
