Teh Weekly Podcast Hoedown!

Yeehoo buckaroo! I've decided to start a new feature here at Astromen! called 'Teh Weekly Podcast Hoedown' in-which I, Mr. Alex, will provide a digest of the best-est, rootin-est, and tootin-est syndicated sound recordings I've allowed to pass into my mind-holes over the course of the past week (or so). As one of our three regular Astromen! readers, I'm sure you'll really appreciate it. Behold!

'Cyber-Lynching the Troublemakers' via Dan Carlin's unfortunately named Common Sense (rss). Dan delivers a monologue about the revisionist de-radicalization of Martin Luther King and flips the popularly accepted definition of the term 'conspiracy theory' on its head.

'On Death In Tolkien's World' via Corey Olsen's The Tolkien Professor (rss). A fascinating conversation about mortality and immortality in JRR Tolkien's Middle Earth, which explains both the current spiritual state of Dick Cheney and makes elves much more interesting than they ever deserved to be.

'Temperate Rice Permaculture' via The Agroinnovations Podcast (rss). Learn how the future of sustainable food is eel meat harvested from a duck-filled rice paddy grown with your own urine. Onward hippie soldiers!

Axe Cop

Rediscover your inner hyper-active five year old . . .

Axe Cop knew that they would need to chase the Boss to Zombie World.

"We are going to need to change Wexter into a dragon so that he can fly us to Zombie World."

"But he is already a giant lizard that can fly."

"To get to Zombie World you need a dragon with rocket wings. Plus, dragons are awesome."

This web comic was created by a five year old and his 29 year old brother.
