Episode 68: Maps Of The Bible by Jason Sanford

Please excuse the tardiness of this week’s show. Big’s hard drive crashed and burned, so desperate measures had to be taken. But now, we proudly present, Maps Of The Bible by Jason Sanford.

Jedediah Stanton’s father died in the Korean Conflict, but he’s watching over him still. For Jed’s father has a secret, and he wants it to remain hidden… bloopers

Also, Big and Rish talk about the great computer crash, improving as writers and Spiderman…again.

Special thanks to Josh Roseman and Julie Hoverson for lending their voices to today’s episode. Extra special thanks to Bryan Lincoln for stepping in during the crisis and putting the episode together. We couldn’t have done it without you.

  1. YES!!!!

    uhhhh….that is….

    Good to see you back, fellas. Looking forward to digging into this one.

  2. Hey, I haven’t listened to the ‘cast yet so I don’t know if you mentioned it, but I read Jason’s story for SSS. It should be available to hear in a few weeks.

  3. I agree with Rish: Jason Sanford is a very good writer.

  4. Cool, Liz, was it the one that he mentioned in the show, “Sublimation Angels” or another one?

  5. Liz Mierzejewski Says:

    I read “Ships Like Clouds Risen By Their Rain.” Really interesting read.

  6. Woooo. So glad you guys are back. Sorry to hear about your hard drive crash, Big. D:

    Re: Dickens, the abridgers of Dickens are hereby Provisional Discordian Saints. I love the story A Tale of Two Cities, but I tried reading it once and had to give up in two pages. You know the “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. It was the richest of times, it was the poorest of times”? It goes on like that for at least two pages. Probably more.

    I often jokingly say that Dickens was paid by the word and milking that for all he was worth. Whether or not that’s actually the case, I can’t say. But it’s fun to say and seems consistent with his prose style.

  7. I give my students one day to say “Your Anus.” They can say any joke they want, it’s all good. After that they have to say “Urine-us.” Not as good, but they don’t want detention.

    And for the record, Pluto never was a planet. It’s been a poser Kuiper Belt Object from its inception. Starfish aren’t really fish, either. Now go cry about it. And your mom ain’t your mom. Okay, she probably is, but I’m on a roll now.

  8. Let them shuffle the numbers
    Watch them come and go
    We’re the ones who are out here
    Out past the edge of what they know
    We can only be who we are
    It doesn’t matter if they don’t understand

    I’m your moon
    You’re my moon
    We go round and round
    From out here, it’s the rest of the world that looks so small
    Promise me
    You will always remember who you are

    Thank you Jonathan Coulton for keeping us from falling for the angry hurtful words of Liz Mierzejewski. *plugs ears* LALALALALALALALALALA

  9. Glad you’re back Guys!

  10. Yay! I really enjoyed this one. Thanks to everyone who made it happen. I hope Big’s computer has a long, peaceful life henceforth.

    When I was in high school, I was one of those Hermine-type girls who just doesn’t think of double entendres (I have since made up for this). We were studying Uranus (pronounced in the most suggestive way). I raised my hand and asked, with utter seriousness, “Is Uranus hot?”

    The teacher, a man, struggled mightily to keep a straight face, but dissolved into this laughter after about five words, along with the rest of the class. I took about three seconds to figure out what they were laughing at and then nearly sank through the floor.

  11. Did you ever find out the answer?

  12. No, he was kind of evasive. Or perhaps the answer was just muffled, as I was hiding under my desk.

  13. Matthew Scherzinger Says:

    Great story and sorry to hear about your PC.

    As for J.K. Simmons being a nobody actor, you guys gotta watch Oz. When I first saw Spider-Man all I could think was that Nazi SOB Vern Schillinger was the editor of the Daily Planet.

  14. Sorry, Matthew, I could never bring myself to watch “Oz.” Too many memories of summer camp.

  15. Uranus Uniform Temperature of –353°F (–214°C)

    Temperature in the anus (rectum/rectal) is at or over 37.5–38.3 °C

    Now this brings me back to the class in which the boys made penis constellations. I made them call their mothers and explain.

  16. STORY: I have to be honest — I didn’t really care for this one. It wasn’t the kind of tale that interests me. The writing was pretty good and there were some fun moments, but overall it wasn’t my style.

    PRODUCTION: Great, except for when the characters actually said, rather loudly, their un-dialogue-d lines. Like, “I’m going to the store” is said, and then the narrator says “Kevin said he was going to the store.” I think the dialogue should’ve been delivered much more quietly.

    COMMENTARY: So much commentary! Let me just say this and then shut up — I almost always rewrite my stories. Instead of editing over and over, I have a tendency to just print the thing out and retype the whole story, editing and updating as I go. To me it’s a more comprehensive way to edit. I’ve done that with almost all of my stories.
