Episode #304 – Zarkorr! The Invader

Zar-who-what-now? We finally get around to one of our contest winner episodes, this one picked by Elizabeth Stege, who designed our delightful new Flop House Housecat t-shirt, which you can purchase HERE! It’s a Full Moon Features (awww yeah, Stu) kaiju movie with about 5 minutes of giant monster action in the whole film. But what it lacks in reason to exist, it makes up for in… charm? We guess? Meanwhile, Stuart explains the advantages to playing with dead things, Elliott explains how time zones work, and Dan introduces an exciting new wrinkle to the show.

Ohhhh, THAT Zarkorr.

    “Homonyms and homophones exist. I mean, ten and tin are examples of neither as they aren’t spelled the same, nor pronounced the same, but those two things do nonetheless exist — I guess.”

    • Gerald Fnord says:

      In a few dialects of English ‘tin’ and ‘ten’ are pronounced identically or nearly, and this is no more or less correct than pronouncing any two of ‘Mary’, ‘merry’, and ‘marry’ identically or nearly.

      • C says:

        More to the point, he brought up homonyms to take Elliott and Stu to task for their affected inability to understand which he meant from context. If they can figure out whether he means “here” or “hear”, they can understand whether he means “tin” or “ten”.

  2. BobFromPineCreek says:

    I was thinking of Stu’s comment about “Works of fiction where aliens select the average human as part of a test of humanity” and the only one I can think of off the top of my head is the bad Mortal Kombat rip-off game “Xenophage: Alien Bloodsport” where aliens abduct the two most average people on Earth, a male lumberjack and a female office worker, and have them in a win-or-die tournament fighting off 12 other aliens representing the average creature in their own worlds.

  3. Gerald Fnord says:

    Thank-you, as ever, for the free download and the work done to produce it; I also thank you monthly via a contribution to Maximum Fun.

    But I used to do software quality control, and so want to point-out that the mp3 is missing its usual embedded image and the mp3 file is named just “Zarkorr_The_Invader” without the standard ‘The_Flop_House__Episode_###_-_’ prefix.
