StarWTF!? Episode 7 - AT-AT (Plus the results of our AT-AT pronunciation poll!)

In this episode, we discuss the coolest looking vehicle in the Star Wars universe. And we get right down to business with the AT-AT vs. A Tee A Tee debate. How do YOU pronounce AT-AT? Then we discuss the practicality of the design. What is inside of this beast of a vehicle??

Since we recorded the episode, we've caused quite a stir online asking people the important question on the pronunciation.

The Dresden Readthrough: Skin Game

We conclude our readthrough of Jim Butcher's uber-popular urban fantasy series The Dresden Files today with book fifteen, Skin Game. We made it, guys! We did it! High five!

So we've reached the latest volume of the series, and I have to say that, after seeing how it was going in the last volume, I thought this was quite the step backwards.

The Book Was Better Episode 106: Batman Returns (with guest host Lia!)

This week we begin our Book Was Better holiday programming, when we return to Gotham City at Christmastime for the barely-contains-any-Batman novelization of Tim Burton's bizarrely troubling Batman Returns! And the other half of our dynamic duo this week is the always awesome guest host Lia! Bats! Cats! Penguins! And a monkey with a gun? It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!

The Fruitless Pursuits Christmas ADVENTure!

Long time supporters of the site will know that this is the time of year when we usually do our Christmas ADVENTure, opening up an advent calendar (or two) every day and spinning a ridiculous story. This year, however, we've made a few changes and it seems more appropriate to post it on our Facebook page rather than here, as FP has become more of a podcast hub.

So if you'd like to see surprises unveiled each day, and follow and ongoing story, be sure to check out our page (and like it if you haven't!). Normally I open up a Playmobil calendar and the Lego Star Wars calendar. Something went horribly wrong this time though and things will be a little different...

Go here to check out day number one!
