A new Cartoon Geeks Podcast! Scary stuff, eh, kids?

Yes, it's that time of year. When kids come to beg for candy at the door. When Universal bases their Halloween Horror Nights on some horror icons they didn't create themselves - two child killers and one adult killer. When the only TV icon who truly honors the season is Roseanne (remember Becky's armless flight stewardess?).
And in honor of that season, we present a new Cartoon Geeks podcast. Windows users, right-click on this link and select "Save As..." from the menu. Mac users, option-click and select "Save As..." You Linux users can build a program module to download things, but don't forget, when they change the kernal next week, you'll have to write a new one...nya-ha-ha!

This show features a special guest - Don Burr from OtakuNoPodcast (click on his name for the link) whom we will invite back on future shows. He speaks about the strange development in the world of anime, where the big distributor Geneon suddenly terminated American operations and stopped distributing shows. Why did the company that released such hits as Trigun, Serial Experiments Lain, Akira and others suddenly close up shop?

Our regular member Martin "Dr. Toon" Goodman shows up in a taped segment where he speaks about how Disney/Pixar's Ratatouille has changed voice acting.

Some other treats in the bag come from Atlanta's Dragon*Con, including their Filk Guest of Honor Carla Ulbrich, (click on the link to see this beautiful and funny lady) and Tom's question to Master Shake voice artist Dana Snyder.

To send you all screaming into the night, we close with a special song in honor of Halloween from comedy music great Jonathan Coulton. Click on this link to see his music store and buy some songs ($1 each, or $70 for the whole music library). And if you want to see him perform, click on this link for a YouTube video of one of his concerts. This is a live concert and he blows a chord...and he recovers with style!
