They See Me Rolllin' Gaiden - They Wings Me Rollin'

Due to a horrible illness, Stan was unable to DM for this episode. Fortunately, his kind and good friend, Michael M. Rader, host of the sincere Wings podcast, Wheeeeeengs! was on hand to take up the mantle and carry our boys through the entire 1993 Wizards of the Coast Wings RPG campaign. We hope you enjoy this short, but action packed episode full of luggage, murder, and the best lupus gags you ever will hear.

Hey folks, sorry for the delay on this episode, but we hope the content will be more than worth the wait! This time, Mike and Jon couldn't make it, so we enlisted Shannon from A Force to Remember to come on and fill in! In the first segment, we talked about some great movies, including Train to Busan, Lion, Hidden Figures, Moana and more. Then, in Segment 2, we got to the Movie of the Month: Stroszek. Was Herzog's Late-70s tale of coming to America as weird as Ebert proclaimed? You'll have to listen in to find out.

Now, next episode, we'll be giving our Year-End Best of 2016 list, but we'll also be doing a round of Post Office Poison, so send your questions, comments, and concerns to crosstawk@gmail.com, Twitter (@crosstawk), or use the comments section on the site.

Thanks for listening, and we'll see you next Friday!

A Thousand Words - Episode 48 - Beethoven Friez

Klimt's Beethoven Friez is many things to many people. To some it is a masterwork depicting a Greek myth. To others it is an expression of a hunger for spaghetti. Where do the A Thousand Words gang fall? You'll have to listen to find out. Also Stan makes a bad impression, Ron praises Tom Waits melodious voice, and Jessica coins a term.
