Happy New Year, Tumblr! 

Last night I managed to sneak Jib Janeen onto CNN. What a fun way to cap off such a wonderfully fannish 2013! (Hats tipped to Mildly Bitter for spotting it first and Corduroy Zebra for capturing the moment for posterity.)

HI ALL MY BUDDIES!

SPEAKEASY WITH PAUL F. TOMPKINS: JAMES URBANIAK

I chat with my pal and Thrilling Adventure Hour colleague James Urbaniak about The Venture Brothers, Hal Hartley, and being recognized as the foot fetishist from Sex and The City.

(If you like the show, please let people know about it!  If this is your first time watching Speakeasy with Paul F. Tompkins, there are many more episodes for your viewing pleasure to be found here on my YouTube channel.)

A new "Beyond Belief" comprises the latest episode of The Thrilling Adventure Hour, and you should listen to it. Not only do you get these two sexy drunks, you also get Ira Glass as a singing elf.

The Thrilling Adventure Hour closed their show on Friday, October 11, 2013 at The Bell House in Brooklyn with what is now a tradition (they’ve done it two shows in a row), by singing a song written in 1898 about the Gowanus Canal. The arrangement is by Paul & Storm. You can see the original song lyrics at Pardon Me For Asking.

A Thrilling Adventure Hour fan named Hardy (age 8) made Lego versions of Frank & Sadie Doyle and Sparks Nevada and he let us hold them!

I was thrilled to have experienced Comicon for the very first time with my dear chums from The Thrilling Adventure Hour. This panel was so much fun to do, and we raised money for a good cause to boot. Thanks to Zachary Levi’s Nerd Machine for having us. - Paul
