Holy crap! It's time for Memories of the Futurecast.
Memories of the Future, Volume One, covers the first 13 episodes of TNG, so each week, I'm choosing something from one episode, and performing an excerpt for you. It will mostly be from the synopses, which is where I think the real humor of the book lives, but from time to time, I may work in some things from the other parts.
Three important things:
- This does not mean the book comes out in 13 weeks. It comes out much sooner than that. In fact, it is available right now! Woo!
- These are not excerpted from an audiobook. These are recorded specifically for this podcast. I'm not sure if I'll do a full-length audiobook, yet, but I'm open to the idea.
- Did I mention that you can get your very own copy of Memories of the Future, Volume One, right now, for $19.87, or as a $10 DRM-free PDF? Okay, just checking.
- The Memories of the Futurecast works hard to earn its [EXPLICIT] tag. You have been warned.
- This week's theme music probably has an actual name, but I know it only as That Song With The Pinball Machine Where They Count To Twelve on Sesame Street.
- This is probably a good time to encourage you to support public broadcasting. KCET is my PBS affiliate in Los Angeles, and I <3 them.
- This week, we're saying THE BIG GOODBYE.
- No, no, don't worry, that's just a clever way of saying the episode's title. We're actually saying goodbye next week.
- I know I left something important out of the podcast when I recorded it yesterday, but I figured I'd just mention it in the notes. It's been about 18 hours, though, and I forgot what it was. So if you can spot the thing that's missing, you're one step ahead of me.
- I mentioned John Rogers' blog. Here's his post-game entry on my episode, The Two Live Crew Job.
- Raymond Chandler's The Simple Art of Murder is a damn fine book, Dianne.
- You can get many of Charlie Huston's books online for free (with his blessing). Start with Caught Stealing and go from there; you'll thank me.
- BEHOLD the Memories of the Futuremug!
- Memories of the Futurecast thinks you'll enjoy 85 random Star Trek facts from Random History dot Com.
- Memories of the Futurecast is 37 minutes long this week.
- Memories of the Futurecast is 35.5MB this week.
- Memories of the Futurecast doesn't have anything clever to add this week. Sorry.
