Uh oh, just realized there’s less than 24 hours until episode 51 “Rumbling.” Can’t stop thinking about the possibilities.

  1. Carlos comes back.
  2. Carlos calls in to the show, but is still trapped.
  3. Cecil mentions Carlos once or twice, directly or indirectly.
  4. Carlos manifests himself but is still technically in the other desert world.
  5. Cecil finds a way to the other desert world and broadcasts from there.
  6. Something with Earl Harlan.
  7. Cecil or Carlos meets the Smiling God.
  8. Any or all of the above IDK ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN I CAN’T WAIT

I really want to get into the Thrilling Adventure Hour because I hear it’s awesome and I need something to listen to while waiting for new episodes of WTNV, but with TAH I have trouble following what’s going on sometimes and I feel like I’d enjoy it better if had a script to read along with. I haven’t been able to find any yet, does anyone know if/where there are transcripts available?

I ACCIDENTALLY HIT ENTER WHILE I WAS ANSWERING AND IT WON’T LET ME CHANGE IT. Someone out there is doing unofficial transcripts, but I don’t know who and I don’t think they’ve gotten very far (seeing as it’s labor intensive and there are a looooot of episodes). That might be a nice fandom project; if more people get involved it’ll certainly go faster.

In the meantime, the wiki has pretty detailed synopses for all (most?) episodes. I do follow along occasionally because sometimes my brain just has a habit of… checking out, and the episode will just skim over the surface of my brain, and I get to the end and go “I have no idea what just happened.” Not that listening again (with the plot reference the second time around) is a hardship.

And I feel stupid adding this, but, you know… make sure you’re listening to the segments separately. I mean, you don’t HAVE to do that, obviously, but it makes keeping things separate a lot easier when you listen to, say, all the Sparks Nevada, then all the Beyond Belief, then all the Colonel Tick-Tock, etc. If it helps, Sparks Nevada is the only one with a plot that you have to follow from episode to episode - the rest of the segments could really be listened to in any order, although the characters do evolve throughout (and some new and recurring ones are introduced, like in Captain Laserbeam). But when it comes down to it, you can listen to any of the other segments as standalone stuff and enjoy them.

Thanks, this is really helpful. I thought I had to listen to them all in order in case there was any crossover but then I was so overwhelmed by the amount of characters and voices! But I’ll try listening to each segment separately and reading synopses.

Walking through this exhibit all I could wonder about was: what did he regret?

Whoops, my recent posts are like 90% Night Vale related. Time to reblog non-wtnv artsy stuff that I find visually appealing and/or my own artwork. ART.

WHAT IF THE FACELESS OLD WOMAN IS CECIL’S MOM? The FOW has never seen her own face and Cecil’s mom always kept the mirrors covered and I’m sure I’m not the first to think of this, but what if?

UNRAVELING

Cecil (The Auction): If I did not win Lot 37 I would be…unraveled. Perhaps I would be unraveled either way.

Faceless Old Woman (Condos): Our language holds the key to it – the key to the unraveling of all things. I think that one day, this world will simply talk itself to death, and I will be left to flit about in the void.

John Peters, you know, that farmer? (Old Oak Doors Part A): It is the unraveling of all things. It is a Smiling God of terrible power.

Maybe Cecil (and his voice) is the world/universe/all things/Smiling God?

Rape Escape

  • Easy and very effective
  • Requires nothing but your body
  • Includes attack

Very useful to know, pass and share please.

Worth watching

I don’t mean to impose a personal favour on you guys, but I really would like to ask that everyone who follows me reblog this. 

I don’t think I made it very clear but last month I was sexually assaulted by someone who I thought was my friend (I don’t want to talk about it don’t ask), and it’s… really fucked with my head. 

Had I known this a month ago I would have been able to get away

So, essentially, I’m really pleading with you to reblog this so everyone who follows you doesn’t get stuck in the same position I was with no way out. 

I mean again I don’t want the point of this to be my sob story or whatever but if you could reblog this it would seriously mean a lot 

and im asking to all of my followers who see this post in your dashboard to please press play to this video, you never know when this is gonna be useful, PLEASE DON’T IGNORE IT.

This is one of the first moves I was taught in Krav Maga, and it is one of the most effective.

It took me about a half hour to get down with practice, but once you get it, it’s an intuitive movement.

Please pass this along, it will save lives.

Important

Please reblog this.

Listen/purchase: A Little Irony by Tom Milsom

Back when the world around me moved so unpredictably
A moment never lasted long enough for me to see the reason why
Love never came to me, it moves unscientifically
But now you’re trapped and I can find
A reason now to ask you one more time

Look at my stuff,
Isn’t it NEAT?
Wouldn’t you think my collection’s complete?
Wouldn’t you think I’m the man,
the man who has science things?

Look at my home
All these chemicals
How many perfections can one condo hold?
Looking around here you think
Sure, he’s got science things!

I’ve got <bleep> and <bleep> a-plenty
I’ve got <bleep>s galore
Oh I’m sorry,
I’ve been censored
But who cares
NBD
I want you!

I wanna be where the scientists are
I wanna see, wanna see them study 
Looking through microscopes with their - what do you call em?
oh- EYES

Living with tentacles you can’t study science
Hands are required for precise measuring
Using a telescope to look at the - what’s that word again?
SKIES

Where the lights float, lights we understand
Up all the way above the Arby’s
Flying around
Wish I could be
Half of Cecilos…

Hot Chocolate Oatmeal

I just made some really good oatmeal so (of course) I had to blog about it:

-1/2 cup oatmeal
-1 cup water
-microwave 2 minutes
-stir in 2 tbsp Ovaltine (or whatever hot chocolate mix you got)
-maybe a little chai tea latte mix, why not
-sprinkle with chocolate chip granola and wheat germ
-if I had mini marshmallows those would be in there too
-what the hell, drizzle some caramel sauce on it
-add some milk, or soy/almond/fake milk if that floats your boat
-basically just add whatever you have in the pantry that you like that would go with sweet chocolately oatmeal, this isn’t really an exact recipe anymore

consume as breakfast/dessert/snack

quote

Listeners: Are you suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome? Are you enjoying carpal tunnel syndrome? Are you surprised by carpal tunnel syndrome? Are you enraged by carpal tunnel syndrome? Do you feel a throbbing sadness that you almost cannot stand from carpal tunnel syndrome? Do you feel a bounty of love and appreciation for your fellow human beings traveling through this confusing and finite lifetime with you from carpal tunnel syndrome? Do you get sexually aroused by carpal tunnel syndrome? That would be weird.

Cecil Palmer

One of my all-time favorite WTNV excerpts.
