Stabbin' to the Oldies

...and also to the newies and in-betweenies. Why was last night's The Ides of March show such a ridiculous amount of fun?!



@Winni4U in Scharbeutz, Germany always snaps and sends captures from each show, and they're always great. In the moment above, Angelo the Cat appears to be explaining Bayes' Theorem of Probability to me, and it's perfect.


The whole show was so much fun! Just look at Uncle Fweddy in his toga and laurel wreath. HAIL FWEDDY!


After I randomly pulled the Damien Hirst card from the Art Oracle for Minimal_Liminal in DeKalb, Illinois, USA, I tried to lighten the mood by saying, "Well, at least you didn't get Jeff Koons." WELL, guess what I then pulled at random for UnrealBrian in Michigan, USA:


Compounding the tasks already-integral to doing a Phoole & the Gang broadcast with the variables of six different oracles made for an exhilarating show full of surprises and fun conversation. The oracles might need to make more appearances on the show. They're fun, and terrifying! But mostly fun.


Here is a speed-through preview video sharing bits of just some of the music in the show:



The video segments edited together for the show loop are by Dutch visual artist Bart Verlaak, a/k/a LAAK. They're part of his Memento Mori loop pack, which he kindly shared with me - please check out all of his cool work and his Memento Mori short film, containing expansions of these segments in a more serious context.
