Moving!

Hello everyone!

Due to LiveJournal being DDOSed all the time and, let's face it, a bit outdated, as of Episode 62 we will be posting new episodes directly to our main website at MadeOfFail.net.

We will not be deleting this community, so you'll still be able to get all the old episodes here. Thanks for sticking around!

Episode Sixty: That's What We're Tolkien About

Episode 60 is live!





SHOW NOTES

SPOILER WARNING: We spoil The Hobbit out to there and back again.

Thanks to Cleolinda Jones (@cleolinda), our Senior Elvish Correspondent, for coming on to replace Dayna. And welcome Danielle (@eruvadhril), Tolkien fangirl extraordinaire and venomous Australian. :P Oh, and some guy named Kevin was here.

The Hobbit is still in theaters. Go see it! Buy the book while you're at it!

Editor Devin has requested we link to The Literal Hobbit Trailer, and who are we not to share?

OTHER THINGS OF NOTE: Kevin is now a part of the MorBacon Theater Company, and has a few projects up his sleeve for 2013, so cross your fingers that all goes well! With any luck, they will be doing a production of Carnacki the Ghost Finder, which you can download for free to the Kindle here.

Danielle would like to draw your attention to Mitch Benn's audio performance of A Christmas Carol here, as well as Martin Pearson's website for a Lord Of the Rings musical.

Also, there is a Klingon Christmas Carol going on in Chicago. No, really. Try to catch it before the end of December.

Finally, keep a close eye on Cleolinda's Movies In Fifteen Minutes for Breaking Dawn Part 2 In Fifteen Minutes!

Happy Holidays to all our listeners!

Episode Fifty-Nine: Everybody Dies and Lives Happily Ever After

Episode 59 is live!






SHOW NOTES

SPOILER WARNING: At this point, do we even need to say we spoil pretty much the entirety of Breaking Dawn Part 2?

Thank you to our Senior Sparkle Correspondent Cleolinda Jones (@cleolinda) for joining us (and finally shedding that title!), along with Jo (@mstorijo) and K.C. (@evil_kinegro) YOU'RE FREE, LITTLE ONES, GO FROLIC IN THE GREAT WIDE OPEN!

Although we played a good game, nobody hates Twilight as much as Robert Pattinson. Nobody.

That said, this was actually surprisingly watchable, and even ComicsAlliance agrees with us.

The interview with director Bill Condon we mentioned is magical and absolutely worth reading. Deleted scenes, we needs them, precious.

Episode Fifty-Eight: Pandaring To the Audience

Episode 58 is live!






SHOW NOTES

It's a Reliquary reunion! Thanks to Tessa and Weston for stepping in for George WHO WOULD HAVE NONE OF THIS NONSENSE CAN HE GET BACK TO HIS WRESTLING SHOW NOW PLEASE KTHX and geeking out over WoW with me for a few hours on end.

SPOILER WARNING: We spoil pretty major plot details for the latest World Of Warcraft expansion, Mists Of Pandaria. You have so been warned.

NERD WARNING: This is pretty close to a WoW-only episode. If you have zero interest in the game, best step right along, nothing to see here, here be dragonflights, etc.

Editor Devin has noted that we may want to define the following for newbies:
-DPS: Damage Per Second; the role in the party that kills things to death.
-AOE: Area Of Effect; a spell or ability that damages more than one target at a time
-PVE: Player Vs. Environment; the "normal" game, where you cannot arbitrarily be picked off by a player of the opposing faction unless you designate yourself for PvP (Player Vs. Player) or are in a PvP-specific zone.
-spec: Specialty; designating if your gear and abilities are for tanking (taking damage for the group); healing (what it says on the tin) or DPS (see above).

In our excitement we were also remiss in not actually naming "the book" we so very highly recommended. This is Jaina Proudmoore: Tides Of War by Christie Golden. It is absolutely fantastic, highly recommended, and kind of mandatory reading if you wanted to know exactly WTF was going on in the Theramore's Fall scenario.

STUFF WHAT WAS NOT WARCRAFT-RELATED: Tessa was at Canterlot Gardens last month and had the best time ever. She met Tara Strong (Twilight Sparkle) and Andrea Libman (Pinkie Pie) and then died of squee. She got better.

Tessa has also been doing a Let's Play of Pony Fantasy 6, a Final Fantasy VI mod, here at 1P Start! Also other games! Watch those too!

My Little Pony: Fighting Is Magic is a fan-made, non-profit 2D fighter being developed by Mane 6 and it looks frickin' sweet.

Hey, remember about a year and a half ago when Dayna said WoW was crap and for nerds and thought she was better than that? Yeah, that was funny.

Episode Fifty-Seven: George Wants Liefeld Tentacle Pr0n

Episode 57 is live!





SHOW NOTES

Hey, folks! Devin (the editor) here. Dayna and George are currently without power thanks to Hurricane Issac. Everyone is okay—as okay as you can be after 3 days in the South in August without air conditioning. Please take a moment to send good vibes down to the Gulf Coast, everyone in the storm's path, and towards all our friends who could use them. Here's a good start if you are looking to give to charities. Please share your recommendations in the comments.

Pivoting towards the funny (or at least funny-looking), thanks to random listener Fail-family member Noel for joining the conversation. Catch him on Twitter (@NoelCT), LJ (noelct.livejournal.com), and all over madeoffail.net.

Bell-bottom jeans enthusiast Rob Liefeld has left DC Comics in a huff. He has a point, but he's lashing out at Scott Synder of all people. Class it up, buddy.

Speaking of bizarre anatomy and costumes, check out Made of Fail's venture into pro wrestling: Signature Move. You know you want more George in your earholes.

Geoff Johns is just dumping all his bad ideas into Justice League so he has nothing but good left for Green Lantern, right? Right? Or maybe this is a good change? Thoughts? We won't yell at you. Too much.


Apologies for that odd echo that pops up here and there. Something funky happened with the recording and, trust me, it was a lot worse before.

Episode Fifty-Six: Fish Fish Possum Possum

Episode 56 is live!






SHOW NOTES

SPOILER WARNING: BIG OL' HONKING SPOILERS FOR THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. GO SEE THAT FIRST.

Thank you to Cleolinda Jones for joining us once again! Feel free to follow her on Twitter (@cleolinda) and LiveJournal (cleolinda.livejournal.com), and visit the Movies In Fifteen Minutes community at m15m.livejournal.com!

Also thank you to J.D. DeMotte for debuting on the flagship podcast! Speaking of ships, you can hear him on our own Star Trek: Galilea radio drama as Kellis Torae as well as his own review vlog, Comics Are Awesome. Follow him on Twitter at @JDDeMotte!

With regards to Galilea, we are re-casting the role of Variel Wallace. Try out, won't you? ETA: SOMEBODY can't read dates, DAYNA, and we have been informed that the auditions are closed and the role is currently in deliberation.

Yeah, so, they banned Buckyballs. It's pretty stupid.

Christian Bale is a frickin' superhero in and out of costume, that is all.

While hospitals have wiped out much if not all of the shooting victims' medical bills, Caleb Medley and his family still need assistance. If you want to help, visit http://supportcaleb.com/.

Hey. Didja like Bane? Go to comiXology. Buy Secret Six. You will not regret this decision.

Episode Fifty-Four: Some Assembly Required

Episode 54 is live!






SHOW NOTES

SPOILER WARNING: We discuss The Avengers in this episode and we are not shy about spoilers. Go see it before you listen to us.

Thank you to Lewis "Linkara" Lovhaug for joining us again! You can find his review of the movie here. Also, he's back to doing History Of Power Rangers so DEAR GOD LEAVE THE MAN ALONE. XD

Also thanks to Gavin Leaf for joining us for his first time on the flagship podcast! Gav plays Q on our Star Trek: Galilea audio drama (we're up to episode 5!) and regularly appears on the Bromance podcast with RolloT and ArcLight.

Everyone give a huge congratulations to our tireless editor Devin, who will be officially married on May 19th! (We asked him if he was prepared for the wedding and he replied thusly. It's possible we should be concerned.)

We also recommend you watch Doug Walker's reviews of the Avengers, both as the Chester A. Bum character and himself. We hear it's the greatest movie he's ever seen in his LIFE!

[citation needed] of the episode: No solid confirmation for a Black Widow movie. While one article claims it's a done deal, it just reads as "they've been talking about it a lot."

Jim Hines writes an interesting piece about the Black Widow's role in The Avengers, which we more or less disagree with but it's still well-written.

Joss Whedon has Things To Say about the movie, and we're also happy to report that as of this posting, it's grossed $1 billion worldwide. NUMFAR! DO THE DANCE OF JOY!
