19. Days Of Blunder

Hello,

Man, it’s late. It’s like 1:30 in the morning, Saturday night. Sarah’s not the only one who is burning the midnight oil these days. Actually, Sarah’s not here this weekend and I have too readily reverted to my bachelor days, my very unhealthy bachelor days. Late nights, video games and cheap food. If Sarah left me alone long enough she would return home to find me, somehow both shriveled AND bloated.

I remembered a line Captain America says! “I am Steve Rogers!” he says it to Groot!

This is a good episode of DWD. I hope you enjoy. As always we talk about a bunch of other cartoons. Cartoons like Alias the Jester where I realize I know nothing about them and Sheep In The Big City, a cartoon I hadn’t thought of in 15 years. I watched a bit of both for clips. Sheep = good, Alias = no good.

Next week, the first of our big eps come out. Looking forward to your reactions. I hope you like it. We never got into this podcast games to meet ‘big’ names but it’s really a nice perk. Who would be your dream guest on our show?

Stay Dangerous,

18. You Sweat Your Life

Hello,

Hope you’re having a good weekend (or weekday, whenever you read this). I had a pretty quiet weekend. We had dinner with my mum. her husband, my sister, her husband and kids. We went to a new entertainment area that has a bunch of fancy new restaurants. Pretty fancy for our part of Melbourne. There’s one of those new cinemas that has a kids theatre with a slide inside. I bet they wouldn’t let me on the slide.

I liked Avengers a lot. But I guess I was kinda sleepy because I can’t remember Captain America saying anything. He talked though, right? I’m going to have to see it again. I liked that posh alien preacher guy though. Solo is the next big, big movie, right? I hope it’s good but these days if you don’t like a Star Wars movie there’s another one coming out next year anyway. I loved The Last Jedi too by the way.

Anyway, here’s a link to Amores Patos (http://amorespatospodcast.libsyn.com/) subscribe and listen. They don’t have a steady release schedule but that’s because they’re students. It’s my favourite DuckTales podcast and I try and listen to them all because I’m protective of the ‘genre’ that Sarah and I were the only entry in for the longest time. But Anna and Faby are the real deal.

Hey, in two weeks time we have a pretty massive guest on. It’s gonna be a long episode too. Then the week after we have another huge guest on and it’s even longer. Wow, I’ve got a lot of editing to do but it’s gonna be worth it. (It’s not Maso, but I’ve been talking to him and we’re going to have him back soon. It’s been almost a year since he was last on. That’s crazy!)

I’m waiting for this episode to upload. Then I go to bed because I have a 5am start tomorrow. My guess is that Sarah will stay up to 2am, working on her craft and watching Outlander. She’s going away for a few nights this week to help our friend with her kids. I’m gonna miss her heaps. Don’t tell her though, keep us between us two.

Stay Dangerous, I’ll talk more next week,

Michael xoxox

 

17. Bearskin Thug (with Alex Malone and David Shaw from The Consumption)

Hello,

Hope this finds you well. I’m well. I had work this afternoon.Came home pretty late then I finished editing this episode. This episode features the cool gentlemen Dave and Alex from The Consumption. That night was a lot of fun and I think it comes across on the podcast. You should listen to their podcasts, Failure to Launch and PunWatch. They’re great. Before the record we had slow cooked cashew chicken with rice and afterwards we had Maxibons. Everyone’s eyes lit up when I brought the Maxibons out because it’s a real treat.

DW and Gos go camping.

 

ALF: The Animated Series – Hair Today, Bald Tomorrow (with Jack Druce and Nick Capper)

Hello,

Jack and Capper are back! They’re two of our favourite people in Melbourne comedy so it’s great to have them both return to ‘Duck Blur’! It’s a shame however, that we chose to watch an episode of ALF: The Animated Series.

12. Easy Come, Easy Grows

Today we talk about this Bushroot episode that it barely a Bushroot episode. We talk about the other comedian named Michael Williams, who watched the Dad’s Army movie, secrets from the Mormon church, Winnie the Pooh and whether our friend Pat looks good in a hat. Sarah gives very sage advice about finding money growing on trees too.

 

11. Paraducks

11 episodes in and it’s time for a time travel episode. And time travel stories’ best friend is confusion so listen as Sarah and I almost come to blows as we try and figure out the plot of this Darkwing Duck. Sarah also tries to annoy me with more broken parodies than a malfunctioning Weird Al Yank-o-bot. Sarah also tries her hand at limericks with mixed results.

 

The Fonz and the Happy Days Gang: May The Farce Be With You

After every five episode of Darkwing Duck, as with DuckTales, we will explore the world of duck-free cartoon. This episode we watch the frankly baffling Happy Days spin-off, The Fonz and the Happy Days Gang (1980). YOU NEED TO WATCH IT TOO! We cannot do it justice. Watch it in full here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j6ap0sez768
