I’m sensing a lot of hate here. 😉 Great episode! Isn’t there a saying that tragedy ends with a death and comedy with a marriage? And hey, Matt and I did the courthouse wedding thing. The last thing I wanted to do was pay mega bucks for a dress that makes me look like a cream puff. 😛 Frills… hate!

For future listeners… for the week that this show came out… Candi was advertising on the Tower ad 😛

I’m pretty sure it’s an automatic campaign… that or Starline has a good sport with a sense of humor 😉

I couldn’t be happier to have co-sponsored this one. This went so well with my “Girls Who Don’t Want Flowers for Valentine’s Day” series of reviews (which I’m not going to link directly here because this comment is not about spamming the board; it’s about the coolness of its relevance).

Keep up the good work.

Okay, first off – there are at least two mp3 RingTones in this episode.

14:01 “I am a coffee mug filled with the Sanka of Hate, right to the friggin’ brim!”

52:55 “Oh my god, I have self respect now, don’t ask for naked pictures of me! Durr!”

No Pink Ponies – Um… Doesn’t it mean that, if her comic book store is successful, that cute comic book guy is now out of a job, and homeless? Is the heroine really that hypermoronic?

And Bobby Crosby – take heart that anything optioned doesn’t necessarily mean that it will be a movie, and any movie won’t necessarily resemble the comics in any way, shape or form after 5 other writers have had at it. There’s this thing called “development hell” and yeah.. I know others who are in there too, with actual studios. It’s a check every time the re-option, but…
