Comics You Can Dance To #20: Enter the Trashcan

A column article, Comics You Can Dance To by: Danny Djeljosevic, Nathaniel MacDonald

 

Comics You Can Dance To is Comics Bulletin's official podcast!

Hosted by Nathaniel MacDonald and Danny Djeljosevic (that's me) and supported by various jokers and guests, Comics You Can Dance To is devoted to discussing cool comics, pop culture nonsense and hopefully introducing you to some awesome music along the way.

Things have been a bit tumultuous with CYCDT these days, what with a busy summer and Nate finally putting an end to his quest for employment, but a couple weeks ago we got together to record a quick ghostful episode where we shoot the shit about the various chunks of pop culture we've been enjoying these days -- television, games, comics, movies. The whole shebang. If us rambling about stuff we like is your favorite part of Comics You Can Dance To, then this should be your favorite episode.

And since this is an episode all about our pop culture talk it's time to remind you of:

 

Comics You Can Drink To

We invented a drinking came for the podcast! MAD PROPS to Niel Jacoby for coming up with the best possible name for it.

If you need to be drunk to listen to us (hey, I'm not judging), drink every time:

  • Nate or Danny forgets the name of something
  • Nate gets the name of something wrong
  • Danny promises to lend Nate a copy of something Nate hasn't read
  • There's an interminable lull, followed by awkward laughter
  • Nate and Danny get distracted by something happening outside
  • Someone refers to another podcast
  • Danny cannot describe why he likes a comic
  • Danny spells out his name in a singsong fashion
  • Nate and/or Danny address Andrew Tan
  • Nate says "Time for a song."

Finish your drink:

  • Whenever Nate and Danny do the time paradox joke and bring attention to the fact that they record the podcast out of order

 

Show Notes:

  • If you were wondering what Sandman Slim is about, here you go.
  • The cheap comic lettering font I refer to is the ZAP Pack from Comicraft.
  • Since this podcast was recorded, I saw ParaNorman. It was fantastic.
  • Check out Anna & Froga.
  • You have no idea how much I cringed when I re-listened to this and heard Nate and I refer to Howard Chaykin as simply "Howard."
  • I am going to be in San Francisco or APE, so say hi if you see me!

 

Oh, and here's what that Andrew WK Gundam covers album looks like:

 

 

And that Hawkeye sequence by Fraction and Aja I try to describe:
