Toronto's Molar Radio #53: Dollar-Bin Theatre!

Scuba DeathThis episode marks the introduction of a new segment, Dollar-Bin Theatre, in which we dramatize cheesy old comic book stories. If you’d like to send us a book (pay no more than one dollar!), go here for the PO Box address. Postage will be negligible!

Once again, there will be two episodes this week, mainly because of a breaking news story, and related exclusive interview, recorded live from jail. But — who’s been incarcerated? The answer, later this week!

Still applicable:

* We’ll be doing a Secret Zanta Mix Tape/CD Exchange at some point, so sign up now!

* Got a relationship question? Ask Beer’d is debuting soon! Our chum Jordan (of ZUKU fame, not to mention a brilliant voicemail cameo on MR #40) would love to answer your pressing dating queries, so fire us an audio file (or e-mail for help). Yes, we can disguise your voice.

As always, put in your two dollars below (or out loud at 309-216-6458), answer the Zantastic poll on the right before we change it, and refer to our contact page for e-mail/Skype/PO Box info.

Toronto's Molar Radio #52: The ZUKU interview.

'Hard Drugs' Matt has one thing on his mind...

The second of two new episodes this week. I know!

Warning: I upped the bit rate on this one, because otherwise, the music sounded like Internet Cymbals (© 2007 Jason Decay). It’s a larger download at 30 MB, but you don’t even care, unless you’re on dial-up, in which case ordering a CD might be faster.

See below for this week’s song in the live album contest, and listen in to get the first few tracks, if you’re coming in late.

Still applicable:

* We’ll be doing a Secret Zanta Mix Tape/CD Exchange at some point, so sign up now!

* Got a relationship question? Ask Beer’d! Our chum Jordan (of ZUKU fame, not to mention a brilliant voicemail cameo on MR #40) would love to answer your pressing dating queries, so fire us an audio file (or e-mail for help). Yes, we can disguise your voice.

Toronto's Molar Radio #51: Dessert poo.

Dessert poo, with cake from Rodney. CLICK FOR BIGGER POO.Right, all cleaned up. Image links are now active, so click click click.

This will be the first of two episodes this week, since this one should have been up last week. Shame to push it down the page so soon though; we’re back in the swing of things, and it turned out rather a-OK, don’t you think?

Next episode: the long-promised ZUKU interview, with a track from their upcoming live record!

Toronto's Molar Radio #50: INTERRACIAL SEX PORN.

Zanta card by Viv; other gifts from Rodney.Have we turned to a life of spam? Nah, just taking inspiration from brilliant junk-comments. Credit where it’s due.

Since we neglected to thank Rodney for his Christmas gifts while there was still snow on the ground, we do a bit of catching up. I completely blame Erin for my rambling this time around; it’s her job to protect you from my meandering stories. Next episode: A delicious present!

* We’ll be starting the Secret Zanta Mix Tape/CD Exchange soon, so sign up now!

* Got a relationship question? Ask Beer’d! Our chum Jordan (of ZUKU fame, not to mention a brilliant voicemail cameo on MR #40) would love to answer your pressing dating queries, so fire us an audio file (or e-mail for help). Yes, we can disguise your voice.

Your eagle eyes do not deceive you; we skipped one. Episode 48 is taking forever to edit, but it’ll be here soon enough. We’re going to keep future episodes shortish, so we can get new ones up more often.

* We’re still doing the Secret Zanta Mix Tape/CD Exchange, so let us know if you’re interested.

* Got a relationship question? Ask Beer’d! Our chum Jordan would love to answer your pressing dating queries, so fire us an audio file (or e-mail for help). Yes, we can disguise your voice.
