Howdy y’all. In case you didn’t know, we’ve been recording a podcast for a few months now. It’s called The Page Count (Bookâke couldn’t gain enough favor). It’s still a work in progress, but we’ve posted to the internet all the same. You can subscribe through iTunes here. We don’t really care if you listen or not–it’d be nice if you did–but we’d certainly appreciate if you’d subscribe to help get our numbers up. We talk about the books we’re reading, books we think you should read, issues in the publishing world, as well as plenty of off-color nonsense.
Now’s a good as time as any to join in, since we finally got the mics working properly for episode 5 and the recording sounds decidedly not subterranean. It will be available on Friday, and if you subscribe it will be right there waiting for you in your iTunes. (If you hate iTunes, you can pull it straight from the RSS feed.)
In our previous episode, we watched, then broke down the terrible Age of the Dragons, in which Danny Glover plays an over-the-top Ahab obessed with vengeance against a white dragon. Most importantly, we learned Marc Velasquez does a bang up Danny Glover impression.
For episode 5, we’ve decided to bring more literary-tinged nonsense, this time focusing on Fifty Shades of Grey. As part of our Junk Novel Roulette game, Aaron Block “won” the unenviable task of reading and reviewing E.L. James’s smutty fanfic phenomenon. What what better way to do it than down a whole bunch of hard cider and Island Blue Pucker then let your friends record your drunken rant. To make it a bit more accessible it’s broken off into a separate download–but still in the podcast feed. Whet your whistle with the video trailer above, and look for the audio download as well as full JNR “review” and the rest of episode #5 on Friday.
