ALSO we here at The Panel will be filling a
KJHK Freeform shift on August 7, from 4-8 p.m.
KJHK 90.7 FM or listen to the live webstream
I don't want to give too much away, but I have four syllables for you:
Tune in to make requests and to say hello!


I just wanted to take a little time and thank some people who have helped us get this far:

+First of all, personally, I'd like to thank Ian and Joe, two of my favorite people to be around. I've had so much fun with you guys, and I'll someday find a way to thank you for all that you've taught me and all of the fun we've had. Basically: hearts!
+Thanks also to Joel of Astro Kitty fame. He was not only our first guest, but also a great friend to us and a sponsor of the talk show. He's knowledgeable, friendly, talented, and owns my favorite store in town. Stop in some time and say hello. You won't regret it.
+Thanks also to Andy Dierks, Nick Ray, Chris Dickinson, Tom Kimmel, and all those at KJHK who have helped us with the FCC stipulations, structure of the show, getting the talk show on the air in the first place, getting the podcasts up and running, and encouraging us throughout.
+And most of all, THANKS TO YOU ALL (the listeners) for supporting us throughout the summer semester! We've all had a big ol' ball of fun, and I, personally, can't wait for the fall semester. We've got a lot of good stuff in store, so stay with us.


After all that, I bid you good night.
But first, a flamboyant, dancing Spider-Man.

'Till next season,

Editorial Note: On this episode of "The Panel," it was announced (or speculated) that Jessica Abel was British. In actuality, she was born in Chicago, Illinois and currently resides in New York City. Any similarity to a British persons living or dead is purely coincidental.

Alan Moore Money, Moore Problems

So I guess they've really, seriously, f'reals greenlighted a 'Watchmen' movie.
I guess a guy named Zack Snyder is at the helm. He did the 2004 remake of 'Dawn of the Dead' and just finished up another graphic novel adaptation, '300.'
Really, though, you have to wonder: is Hollywood trying to make Alan Moore want to kill himself/blow up California?
What are your thoughts, hmmmmm?

Guest: Jeffrey Brown! Geeeeeee whiz!
Review: "Superman Returns"!
NEW! Callers share their thoughts!

Fun fact: At one point during this episode, two men simultaneously impersonate Ahhnold Schwarzenegger.

Also: this episode also features "Superman Returns" spoilers, tender heart-to-hearts about self-instituted abstinence, and the word "super-erection."

15 Seconds of fame

I was on NPR yesterday. On Talk of the Nation, they were talking about summer movies that people are looking forward to watching. They invited people to call in. I called two times. I got through on my second call. Here's the link...

I come in at about 7 minutes and 24 seconds. I sound REALLY stupid. Even moreso than I do normally. It was fun though.
