Presenting ReadySoups second podcast ever. Things are very much in flux here as we move forward into the dark but fear not as we do plan on getting our biz together someday. Enjoy.
Kirby turned twenty on Saturday, and since we here at Ready soup are fans, we thought we’d make him a birthday comic. Apparently people mistaking King Dedede’s good deeds for malicious ones is a running theme in Kirby games. We didn’t know this. We just like people getting punched in the face.
I miss when more games didn’t take themselves so seriously. Games like Turok did wacky things like hunt dinosaurs and have guns that shoot drills into those dinosaurs heads until they explode. Although I guess at the time that might not have been wacky. It was just cool in the 90’s.
These shots do actually exist. I guess they’re supposed to be a mix between Five Hour Energy and Vitamin Water. I try to avoid any liquid that will make me “purge my toxins” though. Really, any liquid that will make me purge anything. If you missed it, We put up a podcast yesterday. We plan on putting one out every Tuesday from now on. We don’t have any definite plans for...
John McDevitt and Scott Mitchell, creators of ReadySoup, and the near famous Frank Otto, writer of The Importance of being Frank, have collaborated to bring you our expert ramblings, musings, and verbal flimflammery. We hope to bring you a new podcast every Tuesday with three new topics each week. We hope you enjoy.
I can’t believe this movie isn’t a joke. Even it was actually inspired by Battleship the board game, what do the makers have to gain from telling people about it. Will anyone actually go see this movie because they love Battleship that much? Is anyone that big a fan? Do they see that ensign scream “HIT” in the trailer and think “Oh man I’ve experienced the same...
Apparently the Daily Sun exists in a time before wrongful termination lawsuits existed because in addition to being hit by a car, their paperboys can be fired for being attacked by a dog, dragged into the sewer by a claw, hit by a fireball shot from a gargoyle’s mouth, and of course, mauled by Frankenstein’s Monster. My favorite part about this comic is that “He was a real...
Apparently, Smurfette was actually created by Gargamel to ruin Smurf society with her feminine wiles, and she was significantly less hot at the time. While this isn’t exactly breaking news, John and I just found out, and it certainly raises some serious questions about the origins of the Smurfs. If Smurfette is both the only female and not a natural Smurf, where do new Smurfs come from? Some...
Let’s face facts, fezes are cool. But let’s face another fact, people look stupid in them. It’s almost unstoppable, that urge to don your red felt crown. You’ll giggle and smile at the sight of your Aladdin-esque top right up until someone sees you. Then all bets are off as your chuck your lid like a James Bond villain. I count myself amongst the vox populus in this...
So here is our one hundredth comic. See what we did here? That’s me in the sunglasses, and John’s wearing the eye patch. Please try to hold back the uncontrollable lust boiling up within you. Thank you to everyone who has been reading thus far. We appreciate all the support you’ve given us. Here’s to another hundred comic even better than the last.
We appear to be a little stuck on naked animals lately. In other news, Friday will mark our one hundredth comic. We tried to think of something cool to do, but as of yet, we’ve got nothing. We still have a day to brainstorm though, so you should be excited, just cautiously so. At the very least, you’ll get a comic.
Avengers vs. X-men started last week. I’m more excited about this than I have been for a Marvel universe-wide event in a long time. It’s most likely because it’s the first in an even longer time to involve the X-men to any large degree, and X-men books are the only Marvel books I still read. Even beyond that though, I’m pretty excited. I’m really hoping for a less...
I honestly was not sure how John would handle drawing this one. We never really talked about how he should deal with the whole naked gorilla thing when we wrote it. I’m happy with the result.
The fat-cat bahamuts and greater demons keep getting richer, held up by the endless work of the destitute masses of bats, rats, and kobolds that only get poorer. It’s only a matter of time until the difference becomes too great, and the hordes rise up against their bosses, swarming over them and chipping away at their health, even as wave after wave is reduced to ash by blasts of fiery...
Remember folks, Magikarps grow up. the sewers of Saffron City are filled with Gyarados that people thought would make cute pets until they evolved. Now, the Kanto government spends millions of pokedollars every year to fund shelters for these poor displaced pokemon.
