TMTYR Episode #1: Farewell to the Outline (The Day the Earth Stood Still)

It’s here, folks!  Oh, not on iTunes, yet, on account of making sure everything’s working first.  We’re all new to this.  But feel free to download it here if you like.  If you’re patient, you should be able to find us in iTunes in a couple of weeks.

In their inaugural episode, the Pavement Pounders discuss the Harry Bates short story Farewell to the Master, the classic 1951 film adaptation of the story titled The Day the Earth Stood Still and the remake from 2008 of the same name.

Second Post About Something-ish

Okay, so we’ve got one fairly solid episode in the books, though not yet posted anywhere.  It’ll get there eventually, we promise.

And now we’ve recorded another episode about Planet of the Apes.  The book, the original film, the unfortunate reboot/remake, and the actually good Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

Just gotta edit it and what-not.  We’ll seriously get it posted soon.  I’ll also get a quick post up about our next topic.

Oh, one other thing is that we’ve got an awesome brand-new show logo, provided by Seth’s high school pal Steven Rasher.  Check it out:

the logo, seriously one of the greatest things ever
