The State of the Woodcast

March 30, 2010 Leave a comment

The State of the Woodcast is strong . . . to quite strong.  Sadly though, there is no podcast for this week, and there won’t be one next week either due to everyone celebrating Zombie Jesus.  I know this news comes as a crushing blow to most of you, but fret not fine friends because that doesn’t mean that we’re gonna stop giving you awesome material to read here at our website!  Exclamation point!

Jim, I’m sure, has enough backed up in the pipeline that that he can email to me at 3:40am and I can immediately post because I too am awake.  I will also try to put some stuff up myself, so this lack of podcasts isn’t too bad.  Think of the first four episodes as a nice, long teaser for the rest of the series that is yet to come.  In future podcasts you can look forward to more lists, more points not being made, more anger from John Marino, and maybe some original written scenes with exciting cliff . . .

. . . hangers!

Anyway, hopefully this video will hold you over until next time.  This one requires patience, but the payoff, ah, the payoff:


(no subject) by Jim Magee, Vol. I

March 24, 2010 Leave a comment

Every now and then, an email from Jim Magee pops up in my inbox.  Most of the time he’s sending some sort of a list or some other writing project he’s working on at the time.  A lot of times however, I simply just get an email that says (no subject) in the title line.  This title is clearly a lie because most of the time the email does, in fact, have a subject.  What it doesn’t have, though, is an author who feels like he needs to tell you what his email about, probably because he believes that his words speak for themselves.  I feel like I need to do something to honor this annoying trend.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the first installment of (no subject) by Jim Magee:

A couple of decades ago this country was given someone who was taken as a baby and told that he had to sing and dance in order to make people happy.  So he did.  And people were happy because of him.

In response to that effort, the country accused him of touching little children.

After he was found innocent of this accusation, he tried to make people happy again.  But nobody would listen this time.

And he eventually passed out.

Well here we are in the fourth episode and we already have a new No. 2 to help things move along.  In this episode we discuss Health Care, goats in kitchens, Keith Hernandez, why Jim might get arrested, and Chad Roulette, all while supplying our friend, Eddie Roosevelt, with more ammo than he’ll ever need.  Bombs away!

As promised from the podcast, I’ll be posting Jim’s favorite scenes over the next three days.  Some scenes we aren’t going to have, so you’ll need to use your imagination.  I’m sure that won’t be too hard.

30. Lawrence of Arabia – “The trick…is not minding that it hurts.”

29. 1776 – “Why can’t you acknowledge what already exists!?!”

Watch the rest after the jump and I'll sit down. I promise!

Woodcast Ep. 3: The Mighty Bison

March 16, 2010 Leave a comment

Yes, we’re still on the air despite a lot of you not even knowing how to download or listen to a podcast.  In Episode Three, the W9 welcomes a member to his very first podcast experience. Join him and the rest of us as we talk about Daylight Savings, Mallard Fillmore, our first Blue President, and Jim’s favorite movie scenes. Catch the fever!

I’ve included two versions of the podcast.  The first one is an mp3 that you can download and play on anything (do people still use winamp?), and the second one is the enhanced (read: with pictures) version you can listen to in iTunes.
