All the actors sound like Seth MacFarlane to me. If anyone were to make a high budget sci-fi-comedy podcast drama, it would be him.

I would love these sorts of radio dramas to see a comeback. Like something set in the Expanse universe, adapted as a podcast drama.

Alternatively, I think there's also potential in directly parodying the sci-fi of the 50s and 60s. It could be really clever if done right.

Spending my evening listening to sci-fi radio dramas from the 50s and 60s.

I can totally hear "Another Race" by Eiffel 65 arranged as a big band jazz swing tune.

My "Playing Shakespeare" DVDs came in the mail today!

Really excited to see what Gandalf, The Voice of Sauron, and Captain Picard have to say about performing Shakespeare.

Been playing with this Android instrument for like 25 min straight. A promising sign.

First rule of virtual musical instrument design: always make sure there's a way to turn the thing off.

I want to turn my Pi into a convenient multimedia player that I can plug into my TV.

Is Kodi the way to go? Or are there other things to consider?

it's getting hard to keep things simple, stupid.

How many sailor moon transformations are there in adventure time?

"Peter Bastian was able to play this music, with a box of straws!!!"

"Well I'm sorry, I'm not Peter Bastian."

I'm also going to build a little interactive android app that will allow you to "carve" vocal sounds with the model.
