Issue 107: Spider-Man: The Lost Years – An Intro to the Clone Saga

On this episode, we’re diving into the torrid history of The Clone Saga, and we’re bringing our non-fans Darryl and Phil kicking and screaming into Ben Reilly’s tragic backstory. We cover his lab-grown birth, the discovery of his own unique identity, and his struggle with yet another clone, KAINE. Only after we record do we realize all the crime bible jokes we could’ve made.

We’re currently cloning Ryan so he doesn’t get a chance to participate, but Sly tries his best to lay out the Clone Saga for us while Darryl feels Ben’s identity crisis and Phil really gets into shouting Kaine’s lines.

Season 3, Episode 2: Saddled with Love

The first week of NaNoWriMo has come and gone! All of the Steffens are struggling to maintain their word count, but all hope is not yet lost! Ian and Darryl have a solid grasp on what they’re doing even if they’re not highly motivated (or, in one brother’s case, downright detest their book), and Liz is trucking along at her own pace. Come for the confusing discussion on This Natalie vs That Natalie, stay for the romantic vampires!

“Is that a Heart you have, or are you just happy to see me?”

Let the battle for Fake Karakura Town begin! You guys are excited for this, right? Right?! Well, even if that doesn’t sate you appetite for action, we have Ichigo vs. UIquiorra, and Ichigo vs. Aizen coming up! We’ve been waiting for those fights for so long that they’re bound to be really good and definitely not super long and boring! Prepare for our longest episode yet!

Darryl pronounces “keikaku” as “cake-cock-coo” like a baka gaijin, Phil slips in two different Cell references, Sly defends the parts Darryl hates the most, and Ryan is checked out, having reached his “it’s dumb” quota for Bleach

Season 3, Episode 1: Tomba o Tomo

We’ve crawled back out of the crypts and are now slumped against our writing desks for another agonizing edition of Tomb or Tome! And what an agonizing edition (2019) it will be! Darryl is trying to continue the same book from last year (as well as 2015), and lays out all the new tidbits he’s discovered re-reading I Was My Stalker. Liz is also continuing her book from last year, though it’s likely her new job will stifle her writing. And Ian—hoo boy—lets luck determine the genre, plot, and characters in his book, and all that can be said is you’ll have to listen to this episode to believe what happens next.

Issue 105 – Bleach Part 4 – Welcome To Hell

No photo description available.
Grimmjow is trying to stop us from reading more

The consensus is in: Bleach is not “terrible!” The gang begins their descent into Bleach’s canonical hell (well, purgatory), Hueco Mundo! Another lady is need of saving, the Espada are in need of a beating, and Kubo’s backgrounds are in need of some buildings! We’re only halfway through, so hang in there!

Darryl pronounces “Re-su-rrec-ción” as “Rez-or-reck-zion” like an estupido extranjero, Phil wants to control our sovereignty, Sly thinks this arc is the best yet, and Ryan has checked out. Podcaster’s note: Nakama means friend.

Season 2, Episode 4: The Uncrustable Abyss

NaNoWriMo is over! It’s all over! Our books included! Defeatism reigns king as the Steffens describe the last bits of their books. Darryl complains non-stop about every facet of his novel, Liz’s real life operation puts her story on hiatus, and Ian decides to just say “screw it” and make a space warrior. It’s been a long, tough year, and we’re all ready for the tomb.

Season 2, Episode 3: Calendars, Vampires, & American Ideals

Two weeks in and things have gotten… unconventional! There’s a new leader of NaNoWriMo, and a whoooole lot of reasons why the person in last place is in the hole that they’re in. Ian talks about the twelve gods of his world that embody American principles, Liz describes her isolationist vampire society, and Darryl gets stuck in calendar hell for the sake of realism. Things may be looking a bit grim at this stage… a bit… tomb-y, if you will.

Season 2, Episode 2: Look at My Nothing

NaNoWriMo is off to an exciting start! Day 7 brings with it some big change-ups from last year, with Ian in the lead and Darryl in last place. The latter sibling explains how he’s struggling to get into his protagonist’s head, the former sibling details the origin of his universe, and Liz is writing about pumpkin people that give birth by blowing up. The Steffens are surviving for the time being—but can they keep it up?

Season 2, Episode 1: Ready to Die (Again)

We’re back at it again! Tomb or Tome is our annual podcast where three siblings attempt to write a book (or finish an old book [or just write some lore]) for National Novel Writing Month! This year (2018) is going to be a little different however, as we’re no longer sharing characters and locations throughout our world. Instead, we’ll be tackling projects that are finally worth our time: Liz will be working on a spooky Burton-esque horror novella, Darryl will be tying to wrap up his “Literary Suspense” book about a girl being stalked by her pseudo-self, and Ian will be laying the groundwork for his magnum opus fiction universe! Will we manage to write our tomes this year? Or will we be tombed yet again?
