Boom, three in a row. That rounds off my three parter with Alex Trepan in ‘Midnight Shopping’ – Jam & The Maiden. I don’t think it’s the best of the chapters I’ve recorded. For some reason there seems to be more echo and stuff in the track. Annoying. Never mind! People have said nice things about the series, for which I’m grateful (thanks Rich!) I shall have to record some more.
This week has much of the usual fun banter between the Skinner Co execs as well as another great comic review from Hugh at the Way of The Buffalo podcast and one of Jay’s multiple personality audio book reviews. There’s also the last Three Day Fish film review for a while as Fish is joining the infantry. I don’t really understand why, and he seems less than thrilled, but I hope he battles through (no pun intended) and gets satisfaction from it.
Back again! I’m glad the Flash Pulp mob are getting back on track – so much so that I’m already a week or more behind in listening! Goddamn it don’t you hate it when purveyors of fine content keep on producing the stuff. Bastards.
So, apart from entertaining true crime stories and geeky pulp anxiety I’m pretty much alone with my little segment in this podcast. It’s part two of Alex Trepan in ‘Midnight Shopping’ – Prawn Ringthis week (guess what comes up next week…) Since it’s a series and offers no explanation of the previous events Jrd’s added a ‘last time on Alex Trepan’: marvellous! I’ve received some nice feedback on the story and my reading of it, which is really lovely and provides a much needed boost. I’m getting used to hearing my real voice with this series. It seems to be okay…
Wow, this is a beast of a podcast. Weighing in at just over two hours (!) this is the Flash Pulp gang catching up after a busy pre-Christmas period. Listen in for slices of Horrible Histories, a Doc Blue seasonal story as well as pulp crime jabber and podcast and audiobook reviews!
Flash Pulp remains the only podcast I listen to every single episode of. Oh, and there’s the first part of Alex Trepan in ‘Midnight Shopping’. Jrd and co. have sweetly agreed to it being serialised, well, for the next three podcasts it will take to tell out the tale. It’s cool! They also read a long letter from Captain Pigheart and say nice things. It made me happy. I had some fun recording the three-parter as well. I haven’t read a story in my own voice before (no Pigheart or de Gashe growling at all). I was quite pleased at how it plays back. My stuff starts at 1hr 16m but really should listen from the beginning – it’s worth it!
The conversations in Flash Pulp’s Flash Cast world get darker and funnier each week. This one hops and skips between organ transplants, Star Trek TNG geekery (honestly one of the geekiest conversations about Lesley Crusher I have ever heard), and contributions from the faithful pulpists out there. Featuring my very own pirate tale The Paternal Adventure.
Me pride swells like an excited zeppelin as this sterling Flash Cast gets named from my story within it. There’s an increasingly great selection of reviews within including games and podcasts and some really disturbing true crime history, plus the return of Doc Azrael! All in all a splendid and exciting listen. Featuring The Gastronomical Adventure for your sweet monkey meat eating pleasure…
I’m endlessly delighted to contribute to Flash Pulp’s excellent Flash Cast; I really feel as if my own brand of pulp fiction has a home there. This week (I may be a few behind) they’ve included another Franklyn de Gashe tale (I had a recording spree where I could do the voice), The Recreational Entertainmentwhich is about a man with a vivisected chair on the rampage.
It fits surprisingly well into the pulpy chatter (Tolkein, racist Germans, drug money, Rambo) and with the other segments for game and podcast reviews, disturbing news and darkened corners of history. Share and enjoy!
Life without Flash Pulp would be all but pointless. It’s my many-times-a-week injection of pulp fiction fun followed by a chatty jabbercast of pulp-related information about film, games and more. Sometimes it feels like my only contact with the world I want to be in. And sometimes, I can be in it too! This episode includes another worrying Spot of Bother and my own Frankly de Gashe short story The Primeval Entertainment. Seriously, give it a listen, then subscribe to the whole feed. That reminds me, I need to send them another tale!
In the process of getting my act together after Christmas I recorded several new and old stories for my favourite podcast: Flash Pulp! Last week those good folks saw fit to accept my submission of The Selachian Damsel Adventure which goes down the ear tubes well. I also sent in some feedback and enjoyed listening to Opopanax read it in a fine piratical tone! There are the usual entertainments within – pulp film and TV gossip as well as more creepiness in A Spot of Bother, a fine review of The Hobbit (with damn fine Gollumisms) and a review of the splendidly mean and funny card game Cards Against Humanity. I don’t normally get the time to play card or roleplaying games but this one was coincidentally whipped out in the pub at a friend’s birthday party last Saturday, so it deserves special mention. Gigantor can tell you all about it below.
After a terrible delay I finally got round to contributing to the wondrous Flash Pulp magazine podcast again. I decided to send ’em another Franklyn de Gashe adventure – this time The Simian Entertainment; it’s a lovely tale of winged monkeys and gentlemen’s clubs. I can only implore you to listen to their podcast on a regular basis for doses of pulpy goodness and entertaining chat about pulp fiction related news and well, stuff. Now featuring game reviews and other marvels!
I’m running out of ways to say how much I enjoy Flash Pulp and their many times a week outpourings of fresh pulp fiction. So… Gaargh! This week I had no pirate tale to spin into the microphone so I indulged myself and hopefully others by sharing a spot of Franklyn de Gashe – timetraveller, Victorian gentleman, poet and serial killer. The podcast is great and Franklyn’s The Kings Cross Entertainment fits in surprisingly well with some of the other peculiar contributions and dicsussions. Viva la Flash Pulp!
Gaargh! Well how can I not approve of that episode title? Shanking for GB right now… And I’m at least a week behind with this, but then I’m more than a week behind listening to the pulpish marvels put forth by @SkinnerCo in their weekly FlashCast (never mind the endless stream of high quality pulp fiction shenanigans, cartoons and wonder). This FlashCast includes The Bloodsoaked Adventure (a dark tale of being hunted by an armada and beasts in the fog) and another remarkably dark Bothersome Thing from Jeff Lynch.
Gaargh, I’m back on ye Flash Cast! Tis just a short warning on this occasion and I am but a week late in the posting of it!
Listen to it now:
The wondrous folk of Flash Pulp have once more been content to add one of me gentle tales of oceanic erotica to their splendid pulp magazine show. Aye that’s right, me party favourite The Mermaid’s Tale can be in your ears in moments:
Gaargh, a short while ago I bought a fancy new microphone recording contraption and have been cheerfully allowing it to hoover up me word noises. Most of it’s going on the reverbnation.com\captainpigheart page but such is the fun and greatness of Flash Pulp I thought it would be cool to sort of premiere the stories in their Flash Casts whenever they find a gap to fill in their diverse schedule. Well here’s the next one:
As if ye couldn’t get enough pirate stuffed in ye ears – there’s even more from the fabulous folks at Flash Pulp. Not content to push out massive exciting pulp fiction epics (ye gods, the recent Blackhall six-parter!) the genius trio continue to pop out the magnificent magazine podcast Flash Cast more or less once a week.
Ye captain’s proud to contribute the odd yarn and twas only when countin’ with me numbers that I realised this was me seventh appearance in such gloried company! Recently re-scribbled and freshly illustrated it seemed a good time to record The Culinary Confession of Monty McBuboe for the pulp listeners.
If you haven’t already started listening to Flash Pulp then now is a fantastic time to start. Multiple read or listen story threads (now reaching heights of awesomeness), community chatter, Wikis and even an Android app. Gaargh, Flash Pulp is most definitely the mermaid’s fins.
Once more me heart rebounds with pride from me captivating ribcage. Aye, the folks at Flash Pulp have been kind enough to include one o’ me tales in their most recent FlashCast. Tis a short one this, The Dancing Adventure which takes the form of an alphabetical game; mayhap ye’ll be able to tell.
Tis the usual quality FlastCast with much pulp chattering and fine contributions from Jeff Lynch, ‘Doc Azrael’ by Doc Blue, Three Day Fish‘s film reviews and so much more. Tis like finding a lost barrel o’ rum with an old friend in it.
Ahar, me words can be in ye ears again! The most recent Flash Cast by the pulp fiction geniuses at Flash Pulp contains one of me little tales. Tis me Orthodontic Odyssey – a story of magic, miniature pirates and well-bosomed ladies. It’s with a new microphone and sounds especially nice. So you should listen in. My yarn’s about an hour in if you’re the impatient sort, but I’d powerfully commend to ye the entire helping of pulp related information and debate and an epic series of guest contributions (including me own humble gibbering). I still get an enormous thrill from the sound of me own guest intro music courtesy o’ Jessica May.
Gaargh, one o’ me proudest lootings this year has been getting to know the pulp wizards of Flash Pulp. Tis an especial Christmas thrill to get an episode of me own. I recorded me Accursed Christmas tale for Flash Cast – a story of zombies and festive good cheer, leprosy and pragmatism. Enjoy! I have no words to express me gratitude. I’ll plunder for ye, snare merwenches, frot with dangerous beasts and write ye poetry – name it. Merry Christmas to Flash Pulp and the Flash Mob.

Ahar, Christmas is almost upon us and so ye Christmassy yarns’re wheeled out once more for ye aural pleasure.

It’s truly illustrious company and ye captain’s honoured to be included. Plug it in ye ears.
Gaargh, wondrous new me fine fellows, though tis news o’ a week or so in age. The charming pulpish folk at Flash Pulp have filled our electronical airwaves with yet another podcast o’ pulp related marvels. In the mix o’ news and comment be ye captain verbalisin’ me Gelatinous Adventurefor the pleasure of ye nets. Aye, I’m much minded to offer further yarns for their weekly Flash Cast. There’s a berth awaitin’ ye on the Grim Bastard.
