Comic Gong 2017! Sheap, S’Hershel and myself returned to the epicentre of Illawarra fandom for another year running. These are our stories. Special mentions go out to Louise and Fiona for the Co-Production assists, and Lenny for providing the “ambiance” for the first five minutes. Thank-you linesmen, thank-you ball-boys.
The Food Fusion boys met me at Dicey Riley’s and we talked fusing food, the correlation between my version of bolognese and my former grass roots revolutionary movement, reality television and food.. And other things. We were even lucky enough to get a surprise cameo from a guy that none of us knew. All in an afternoons podcasting.
I know I’ve used the intro song before, but it’s called “Ice Cream Man” so it’s food, so it’s related. That and it’s a gritty pimpsploitation movie compressed into 4 minutes. In the most awesome of ways.
After a while since our last session, Nuggsey and myslef get Sunday philisophical as per usual, with just the right amount of fecal talk up front. That really is a strange collection of words, ‘fecal talk up front’. I could take that to mean a whole lot of things.. It’s a gift and a curse.
@SeanSheap1 stopped by to chat about hip-hop history, and in particular we delve a little bit more into local Wollongong hip-hop history. We also talked about comic books, the ABC and how to make something called a ‘lung’.
In a shocking turn of events we attempt (by checking Wikipedia) to get to the bottom of the mysterious origin of the word ‘Kembla’. Plus I debut our new intro theme (at the end of the show) made by a very good friend of mine.. Let us know what you think.
@Traitism is back and along with him he brought Mirx, AKA @ABSORB77 (on Instagram), one of the only real renaissance men I’ve ever met. We try to make sense of whatever the fuck happened last week in Australian politics. Afterwards we pick Mirx’s brain for a good hour about all things hip-hop. Well, for the most part. Big thanks to Trait and a huge thanks to Mirx. Go and have a coffee at his Cafe Dusk Tarrawanna if you’re in the neighbourhood.
