Ain't It Cool News (



Ambush Bug here. The below hour-plus long conversation took place between myself and my fellow @$$holes Matt Adler, Optimous Douche, and our host Johnny Destructo of as we talked about REGGIE & ME #1, WOMANTHOLOGY: SPACE #1, LOBSTER JOHNSON: CAPUT MORTUUM #1, SPIDER-MEN #5, STAR TREK THE NEXT GENERATION: HIVE #1, GHOST #1, an interview with THE STRANGE CASE OF LUTHER STRODE/ TEAM 7 writer Justin Jordan, listener emails, another pants-shittingly awesome episode of @$$terpiece Theatre, and of course, more general jack@$$$ery!

Looks for more of the Holes rambling about comics on Poptards, follow us on Facebook here, and in future AICN COMICS columns!

    the funny thing is...

    by sonnyhooper guys don't even review any of the Before Watchmen books this week and yet Pavlovs dog up there is still barking the same old bullshit. <p> Alan Moore really has his acolytes well trained.... don't he? <p> anyway.... speaking of Dr. Manhatten's penis, since it came up (see what i did there?). <p> the focus is always on his blue cock, but why no mention of the balls? talk about a bad case of blue balls....... makes one wonder how good sally jupiter really was at her job of getting the atom bomb laid?

    by sonnyhooper

    has it really been 12 years since Jeri Ryan was the ONLY reason to watch ST: Voyager? <P> fuck me..... where does the time go?

    7 of 9 Voyager

    by optimous_douche

    I've been rewatching Voyager in Netflix, not bad...not bad at all. More STAR TREK sameness to be sure, but if you love that shit - more is always better.

    kinda lost intrest in star trek after Deep Space 9 ended

    by sonnyhooper

    ....the way Ben Sisko went out was the straw that broke the camels back for me. just hated the idea that Ben left Jake behind to be with the aliens in the wormhole. basically it ends with Ben Sisko turing his back on his friends and family because the wormhole aliens ask him to? fuck that. Ben Sisko was a bad ass who should have told the aliens to suck it. <p> but i did watch the odd episode of Voyager just to see Jeri Ryan fill out that silver body suit. now thats good costume design. <p> like the re-booted NuTrek movie well enough. just wonder how anyone could get excited for the next one since they took sooooo long in between films.

    I Had Burgers With Sisko

    by optimous_douche

    He was actually the best-man at my theater Prof's wedding, 22 years later Brooks was doing a show at the Pittsbugh Public and came up to my school for an afternoon. Flash forward another fifteen years, I saw him again at Wizard World and he remembered me as the dude that smelled like a Grateful Dead concert at the picnic. Ahhhh, memories....

  • Sept. 25, 2012, 2:15 p.m. CST

    lol, nice...

    by sonnyhooper

    ...always liked Sisko. he seemed to fall into a nice sweet spot between Picard and Kirk. he was a reasonable thinking man like Picard but if he had to he would beat you down just like Kirk. <p> of course, i will always remember Avery Brooks as Hawk on Spenser For Hire. talk about a bad ass. <p> anyway, it's cool that he remembered you. and it's nice to know you smelled like a Greateful Dead concert instead of smelling like a Phish concert. <p> fuck, remember Phish? jesus i hated that crap, that had to be the worst part of smoking grass in the late 80's and early 1990's. some asshole always wanted to burn one down and listen to fucking Phish. <p> don't get me wrong amazing musicians, but holy crap some of their stuff was just too much to take.

    I liked Phish

    by optimous_douche

    For the first fifteen minutes of each song and then they lost me in the second half. During my major toking days it was with other theater majors, so being the quirky lot we were, there was no standard for the radio. Don't ever get baked to Les Mis, makes you feel really bad about the world.

  • Sept. 25, 2012, 4:28 p.m. CST

    right exactly....

    by sonnyhooper

    ...i'd be listening to a Phish song and think it was catchy and cool and then....the song would never end, or worse..... just veer off into some other wacky direction. <p> i gotta tell you one time we were pulling tubes at this guys house who had a 10 foot bong. after we got good and toasty the dude puts on the soundtrack to Koyaanisqatisi..... sweet jesus i felt like i could feel the rotation of the earth. we had to talk this one guy out of climbing a tree because he wanted to build a nest.

    thats the beautiful thing about conversation....

    by sonnyhooper

    ...its about the journey, not the destination.

    It's two-two-two-conversations in one - Captains

    by optimous_douche

    CAPTAINS was edited for crazy by the king of crazy himself Kirk. I fault no one on that train wreck other than Shatner.

    About Star Trek..

    Avery Brooks interviews make me wonder...

    by Jaka he just an INCREDIBLY GREAT actor, or did dude really change that much as a person in the years since DS9 ended? Because there is NOTHING in his performance over the seven seasons of that show that would lead you to believe he was the man we now see in interviews. And I don't believe The Captains was edited for crazy in the slightest. It's actually a pretty solid watch, other than the squirmingly uncomfortable Brooks scenes.
