What Derek doesn’t realize is that we don’t actually speak English – to us it sounds like a tongue shared by our listeners, but we actually speak like “Yip Yip ack ACK yip”. So in addition to converting the files and mixing them, I have to run the audio through a translation program with human speech synthesis. Since there’s no “posh Doncaster” accent freely available, I had to write this software myself – and rewrite it every time because for some reason our non-euclidian alien tongue corrupts the program as it is fed through. Not only that, for some piddling reason, I can’t use a high-level programming language. I have to write it in binary machine code using a microscopic magnet to directly flip the bits on my hard drive plates.

Anyway, we talk about The Hunger Games fresh from the screen, but we ramble on a bit too long. Fortunately a cartoon monkey saves the day.

So first I have to press record on the voice recorder, then we have to waffle for 15 minutes, then I have to connect it to my computer, then I have to transfer the files over, then I have to convert them from WMA to WAV, then I have to splice the files together in Audacity, then I have to export it as an MP3, then I have to log into Derek’s hosting service and create a new sub-domain for it and wait for it to appear, then I have to upload the MP3 via FTP, then I have to write this balony and link the file.

Folks, there’s a lot of hard work required to be this crap.

Anyway, reviews of The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret and Hard Candy.

We are praiseworthy of Take Shelter and we ponder the physics behind Captain Forever.

We talk about: Numberjacks, Exam, The Long Goodbye, Community and Safe House.

Spot the deliberate factual errors. We also find out that drawing pins rolling pins are useful for “emphasizing your points.”

Walking around talking about stuff. As usual. This time it includes Bolt, Cars 2, Up, Puss in Boots, The Hogfather book and Skyrim. But no mention of Peak Oil or the Islamification of the UK.

We discuss water trickling down a road, Human Centipede 2, Grace, a couple of listeners, Hugo and Sacha Baron Cohen’s resemblance to the guy from Allo Allo.

We discuss the prologue of Rubber, then we watch Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. The film. Then we talk about it.

We’ve just seen Super 8! Several weeks ago. Forgot I recorded this. Sorry.
“Enjoy”.

Do you like video game chat? Tough. We make you wade through 15 minutes of pointless waffle about Edward Norton and SmartPrice toothpaste before Duncan mutters something about Frets On Fire X. Derek buys a knife.

Despite Duncan’s claim that this is our 12th Pediconochromatic, it is actually the 11th.
If you like these, you might like to go back and investigate Pedi #10, which now links to the correct episode. I think. Let’s call the whole thing off.

Here we review Cargo and Captain America: The First Avenger. A young teenager is excited about World at War.
