We’re both huge Prince fans, and if you’re a regular listener, you know how often his name and work come up on this podcast. Needless to say, we’re gutted, and needed to talk about it when we heard of Prince’s passing. We hope you’ll enjoy listening to this special edition of The GAR! Podcast, and remembering with us. Rest in peace, Prince.

And this is Ray’s favorite version of It’s Gonna Be A Beautiful Night:

Special Note from Ray: If you’re a long-time listener to GAR!, you’ve probably heard a cat mewing in the background many times. More than likely, that cat was my pal Dewey, who I adopted in 2002 as a kitten. I found Dewey mewing his little head off in the adoption section of a Petsmart. I came over and asked to see him; he jumped over to me, crawled up my one arm, down the other, and went to sleep in the crook of my arm. We haven’t been separated since. I didn’t adopt him; he adopted me.

On Thursday, July 30th, Dewey went to the Big Farm, where he can roam and play. He was a champion mouser, and an amazing cat despite the onset of blindness midway through his life. He showed me more love, affection, and trust than any other animal I’ve ever known, and I will miss him terribly.

If you’re reading this, please consider making a small donation to your local animal shelter. They rock, and they could probably use the money. Or, if you have the room in your life and the love in your heart, consider adopting a shelter animal of your own.

Thanks to all of you for listening, and we’ll be back next week!

GAR! Podcast Episode 30: Live From The Front Seat Of Glenn’s Car!

(Note from Ray- Glenn did our write-up. I’m shocked that he did this without using the word “bedbug”. So, not for any reason other than it’s fun to say “bedbug”…BEDBUG BEDBUG BEDBUG BEDBUG! You’re welcome.)

(Also, the guy we thought was dead? He wasn’t. We saw him walking around a few hours later. So we didn’t make fun of a dead guy. Our karma is spared.)

(Also- Alligator People is AWESOME. Watch the movie below. You’ll thank me later.)

(Also- this was my favorite podcast with Glenn. We really did this in the parking lot of the con in Glenn’s car. We should do more like this.)

This week’s special Live from the Pulp AdventureCon episode of The GAR! Podcast includes discussion of the following:

Pulp AdventureCon / Glenn’s arcane movie knowledge / The Wild World of Batwoman / The Alligator People / West of Zanzibar / customer service / the dead guy in the back / Golden Age comics / slabbing comics / the original Daredevil / Mark Waid / Mr. Terrific* / serials / The Spider / bat mitzvah / figure skating / Tonya Harding / sex tapes / this episode’s Breaking Bad reference / Brady Bunch / hotel as alternate housing / customers / used Star Wars toys / Ender’s Game / creator vs. product / Mel Gibson / Super Fun Night / Queen Latifah / marriage / the Green Hornet on radio / Frank Miller / The Spirit / into the woods / Tom Smith / The Fox /

* although what Glenn is thinking of is Captain Nice
