Heavens to Murgatroyd! A cast was recorded! Podcast, even!

Here are some things you may or may not want to know about this episode:

  • Star Wars: The Old Republic is released in the United States on December 20th; Europe on December 22nd.
  • The F8 Conference conference revealed a bunch of new things coming soon to Facebook!
  • Seismic Stan’s project, which we played a teaser trailer for can be found here: tech4news.org
  • The DC Reboot continues! Petter and Breki have read Wonder Woman #1, Superboy #1, Batman #1, Catwoman #1, Nightwing #1, Supergirl #1. The joint opinion seems to be that Wonder Woman #1 is awesome.
  • Some awful video game voiceovers can be found here, here and here. (Dean’s face acting make them awesome, however!)
  • This week’s Deathmatch sees The Riddler square off against Sherlock Holmes.


Claims of the Normal

Claims of the Normal was the first show to launch on the CSICON Network. Originally intended as the only show to run on the website csicon.org (the 'con' in CSICON stands for Claims of the Normal, after all), it quickly became the launch vehicle for so much more. Breki and Petter started the show, and got Arkenor on board, and it all just went from there.

The show, over time, was replaced by The MMOsketeers, starring Petter, Arkenor and Teppo, as well as Instanews, starring Breki and Jack. None of these shows exist in their original form, but the legacy created by Claims of the Normal lives on.
