We’ve got a listener phone call this week, wondering if we consider Randy Newman a Novelty Musician (answer: Yes.), but before we get to that, we’ve got discussions about the silliest sport on Earth (Rugby), whether there’s intelligent life on other planets (probably, and we hope they never come to visit us), as well as talk about eating well and keeping regular. Also, if anyone knows the reason that Lynrd Skynrd gives a shout-out to the Governor in their song Sweet Home Alabama, please let us know. Was it because of some sort of Highway Reform, or was it something having to do with Segregation?

Alex and Mike are back in The Lair with a jam-packed episode! First, Mike’s Next Big Announcement Which Will Surely Have No Effect On The Regularity Of The Show (get read for lots of Ink Banthas episodes in November…), then Alex’s Man of The Week: a man who collects his own offspring like some people collect Vinyl LPs. A discussion about stress and decision-making, where unfortunately Mike implies that he’d always make the healthy eating choice. On the show he states he’d always choose the Fruit over the Candy, but he should have admitted in reality, he would choose a bowl of Heavy Cream over anything else. We all have our weaknesses. THEN! The topic of Mike applying to be a contestant on SURVIVOR is raised once again, but this time Alex has a better idea: The Panthers should apply to be on The Amazing Race. All one of them needs to do is learn how to drive a stick-shift, and the prize money is as good as theirs!

Mike is on assignment down at the J’ore so Alex returns to the Bantha’s Den for another round of STAR WARS chit-chat, this time with Josh Flanagan. Why do the prequels make people so angry? Is George
Lucas really more machine, now, than man? Speaking of which, what’s the deal with Lobot anyway? If you aren’t sick of STAR WARS yet you will be by the end of this one.

No, it’s NOT more readings of the 50 Shades of Grey trilogy, it’s plain-old Alex and Mike yakking it up alone in the Lair, just like old times. We address the fact that Tony’s tour-de-force is gonna be a tough one to follow up on, and it’s almost like we don’t even try. Hear about our recent con experiences (TCAF, The Wild Pig Show in NJ), seeing Marvel’s The Avengers, getting cable installed in the house, adopting children and changing their names to something more suited to their social standing, and murdering buckets full of frogs.

The Desert Panther, Tony Consiglio, creeps once again into The Lair, this week to perform a dramatic reading of the erotic smash-hit Twilight fan-fiction book, 50 Shades of Grey. If any Books On Tape producers are out there listening, please hire Tony to narrate your recordings. Especially sexxxxy ones.
