It's been literally hundreds of episodes since we had the pleasure of talking with Michael Bracco on our show. According to the internet it's been around 1,541 days which I thought would be a neat statistic but in reality it just kind of made me feel old so we'll drop the stats for now and get to the good stuff.

Some people might be a little more familiar with Michael's alter-ego: the legendary Baron Von Sexyful of Super Art Fight. But performing in insane bouts of artistic mayhem doesn't quite fully illustrate the scope of his talents as both an artist and a writer and some would be pleased to hear he's also been producing his own comics such as "NOVO" and "Adam Wreck" for quite some time.

Now, many years and many more episodes later Michael is back and this time he's got a new volume of his webcomic "The Creators" that he's looking to get published and, as of this writing, it's looking like that dream is going to become a reality. Check out the Kickstarter HERE and if you wanted to get caught up with the rest of Michael's work take a look at his website HERE and get your read on.

Enjoy!

I am forever indebted to Brett and Alex. They are two of my closest friends and they have introduced me to more incredible things over the last decade than I could possibly have imagined. Not only that, but then they have the patience to deal with me as I gradually slide down a spiral of fascination and obsession. They really are saints.

2013 was a big year in terms of "Jayare gets obsessed with stuff" as that was the first time Brett and Alex took me with them to a Steampunk show down in New Jersey. It was at this show that I was introduced to a smorgasbord of acts, people, and performances I never knew existed: One of them being the musical powerhouse known as "Frenchy and The Punk".

Described as a "Multi-cultural genre-bending NY Folk Cabaret Duo", Frenchy and The Punk have been traveling and performing around the world since 2005 and have shown no signs of slowing down. In fact, they're currently raising funds to release their latest studio album and are going to be touring the United States with another OMV favorite: The Men That Will Not Be Blamed For Nothing. Hop on over to their website for tour dates, merch, and all that other great stuff.

So why am I rambling about Frenchy and The Punk, you ask? Well as it turns out they had a little bit of free time between shows and gave us (along with Brett Kelley) the opportunity to chat with them about their past, present, and future in one of our most anticipated interviews to date.

Enjoy!

It's been a while since we've had one of those real late Saturday night "oh man I hope they didn't forget to make an episode this week" episodes so we figured we were due for one. But this is a late one for good reason:

It's Free Comic Book Day.

And free comic books we did acquire. Then we had to do other adult stuff but that's boring and not relevant. But free comic books were achieved and now we're going to talk about them. If you missed out on FCBD 2018 be sure to mark the first Saturday of May for next year and start planning. Or you can hit up your local comic shop and see if they have anything left over; you never know what you might get your hands on that turns out to be your next obsession.

Enjoy!
