s04e11 We’re BACK! Pre-Christmas catchup!

Play

This episode, we catch up with Ron, Scott and PJ and chat DICE and why Ron didn’t go.

We also discuss what would constitute a best-of podcast (answer: not much)

We cover the Marvel Unlimited app (in fact, this episode is a little Marvel heavy, so we’ll try and get back to slightly more obscure comics next time…) and review some stuff.

Listen!

s04e10 Sunnyside No Mower…?

Play

HEY! It’s another new episode of Sunnyside comics Podcast, all the gang are back at Rons house and talking nonsense about comics.

First up, we have to answer the question… IS THIS THE END FOR SUNNYSIDE COMICS…? Listen on, dear listener, listen on.

PJ Rants about modern music, we talk DICE, 2D and the Belfast MCM. We also review some comics, catch up, and Scott sells PJ on the idea of Marvel Unlimited (IT’S ACE!-pj)

 

 

se04e09 Be Our Guest…

Play

It’s our fourth year of podcasting! I KNOW!

I’ll be honest, this show was recorded a while ago, and I can’t remember what it’s about, so I’m listening to this now.  To the surprise of no-one I bore everyone about manga studio, Monsterology and Numbercruncher. I wish they’d stop me. Even I can’t listen to it.

I also implore everyone to buy preorder Dept of Monsterology #1. Even though you can’t now. Le sigh.

We also talk: music, comics and movies.

Anyway, enjoy the show…

(I promise we get stupid a bit later…!)

s04e08 Man oh Man of Steel

Play

Yay! We’re back! Podcasting live and direct from the Ronster’s front living room. Like, whenever he remembers to come home and let PJ and Scott into the house (after they’d been waiting outside for half an hour) luckily they’re not bitter about this.

This weeks show we cover 2d, the Jordie Bellaire ‘cast, Yo Yo and kid Yo Yo, a review of BPRD Plague of Frogs volume 4 and there are major spoilers for Man of Steel. (Not to worry, you can listen safely to the non spoilered section of the show until we get to the MoS steel bit and you can skip a chunk of it – there’s fair warning…)

Also the show is about 2 hours long(!) which is what happens when PJ exercises some self control and doesn’t just announce he’s had enough.

Have at it! And don’t forget: we need reviews on the iTunes store – if you’ve not reviewed us before it’d be awesome if you could. You’ll find it here.

s04e7 Kicking Kickstarter

Play

Woosh! From our mics to your ipod (other mp3 players are available) The Sunnyside Comics podcast is back. This week, PJ shares the pain of a digital comics reading habit, Ron tells us about Marshall Law and Scott … well, I’m never really sure what Scott does. BUT HE WAS DEFINITELY THERE! (so was Suzy, she’s 23, you know…)

We review: Now Xmen New Now NEW. Or whatever the hell it’s called. That one by Immomen and Bendis. Marshall Law by that Pat Mills and Kevin O’Neill and we talk Bill Willingham’s kickstarter.

s04e06 David for the Wynne

Play

Hello! Hello! Yes! We did it! A sixth show, and another one with a guest! David Wynne joined us today – David is the writer/artist of many fine books – you can read some of his work for free at Particle Fiction and you can chat with him any time you like via twitter.

I’ll be honest, this show was recorded about a week and a half ago, and I have no memory of what we talked about (I try and forget them the moment they’re recorded, for very obvious reasons). I’ll be VERY surprised if it’s not full of the usual stuff and nonsense EXPECT CRUDENESS FROM THE VERY START (oh wait! FLASHBACKS! we talk about the perfect digital price point, Halo Jones “baps out” controversy and Scott explains the difference between the milk of cows and the milk of coconuts).

(Also: apologies for the sound quality, we’re scattered to the four winds at the moment, so don’t get to sit in front of the lovely lovely Mics at Ron’s house)

((Is that enough now? I’m off – pj))

 

s04e05 Dec & Jordie in the HOUSE!

Play

(Ron’s house, specifically)

This week’s show we’ve been joined by the lovely Declan Shalvey and the equally lovely Jordie Bellaire.

We talk comics, a little bit of craft, breaking in and Dec manfully keeps the show on an even keel by insisting on finishing questions even though PJ as ever, has a child like attention span.

Scott could have stayed at home and just listened to Orlistat this one, but he was there, honest (though I think he wakes up at the end) Ron pretended to be professional, and Jordie put up a brave face in what can only be described as an hour and a half of the usual tomfoolery.

And, if you’ve time, you should totally watch the following shennanigans produced by Ron – with some help from PJ.

And here’s Dec’s appearance on RTE, you’ll want to skip ahead to about 44 minutes in where we join our hero discussing the various serious questions of the day (not really: it’s about comics)

Now COME AND LISTEN TO OUR SHOW! (Also: review it and spread the word!)

And extra special thanks to Dec and Jordie
order albendazole for coming on, and for Stephen Mooney and his wife Jac for coming down to Belfast for a top notch fun evening out! Sorry we didn’t record that bit for the podcast, it was great!

S04e04 Where your porn at?

Play

So… snowed in, the Sunnysidecomics Crew had to google+ our podcast (rather than all piling round Ron’s house). Unbelievably, Ron is STILL snowed in, but he found the time to chuck the podcast together. So here it is.

We join our lads mid flow talking about where they stash their porn… (don’t worry, we eventually get round to comics).

Oh, Ron wants to apologise for some of the echoy purchase ampicillin sound. Ever the perfectionist, and yet constantly stymied by basic failures like forgetting to press the right record button or PJs appalling Mic technique.

(We also cover Brian K Vaugn and Marcos Martin’s Private Eye, Batman Incorporated – though since we only ever
purchase Orlistat read these things digitally, it’s not the most current run despite us thinking it is and a quick review of the Croods – and dinosaurs with feathers)

s04e3 Half Past Danger; Full on Mooney

Play

Series 4 – Episode 3.

Hey! Big props to The Ronster who had a dickens of a job to edit this weeks show altogether. Was it worth it? I suggest you listen up and see. This week, we have purchase furosemide a special guest: Stephen Mooney, who joined us via the high tech, futuristic technology of Google+ (in his bathrobe which is why he looked like a jedi to me – this will make sense, sort of).

Stephen talks to us about his new creator owned book from IDW “Half Past Danger”, PJ shows off his splendid mic technique (this is also why Ron had a devlish editing job, Stephen phoning in from Google+ in another country sounds better than PJ who is in the same room.) and Scott doesn’t tell us he’s going to ask his girlfriend to marry him. (Which he did the next day, so congrats to Scott purchase albendazole and Hannah, we’re very happy for you…)

I HOPE YOU APPRECIATE THE EFFORT RON WENT THROUGH TO EDIT THIS! EVERY ONE SAY “THANK YOU RON”.
