Some Wicked Theories for 2017 by Agent Palmer

Hello and welcome to a brief look back and a look forward from deep down inside the sub-basement of The Wicked Theory Laboratories, with me Agent Palmer.

[Editor's Note: Hey guys, Bill here, don’t freak out. Palmer hasn’t taken over. This was totally authorized and will be supervised as you read. You’re safe.]

Now, for those of you who have been listening to all 56 episodes The Wicked Theory Podcast released in 2016, you’ll know that while Ed hasn’t been granted full co-host status (he’s something close, yet Bill won’t give him the satisfaction of making it a full reality), I am in the similar boat. Just a“Cog in the Machine” down here in the basement, while being somewhat like a Producer, without being granted the title as such.

[For some reason Palmer wants to remind you all of what a dick I am, which is not true. After all, I leave those leaky pipes down there in the basement so he has something to drink.]

Since we’re all aware that math is not Bill’s strong suit, it’s no wonder that for a weekly show, he put out 56 episodes in a year that only contained, like always, 52 weeks. But as listeners, we’re not complaining are we?

[It’s not math, it was magic.]

So what can you expect from 2017? Well, provided Bill, as editor of this post, doesn’t redact everything I’m about to divulge, here are six theories I have for The Wicked Theory Podcast in 2017.

[He has no proof to back up ANY of the following. No science. No documentation. He’s basically making all this up. …..or is he?]

Theory #1: Expect More Bits into the Rotation

Though, at this point it’s too early to tell you what they are, I can confirm that besides, Ask Mumm-Ra, Pitch vs. Pitch, SuperFight, and the occasional drop in of Uncle Vito, there will be other bits added to the rotation moving forward. Personally, I’m hoping for more original (spoof) works from the boys, like “The Raven” and “Twas the Night” from this past year.

[Out of the gate, this is pretty good. But it does remind me that I came up with all of these segments except Uncle Vito (which is trademark & copyright O’Hare Enterprises), and makes me wonder what Palmer is adding.]

Theory #2: Lists, Lists, and More Lists

Despite it being a standard in podcast content, The Wicked Theory Podcast doesn’t cover lists, either self made or otherwise, that often. I would expect more of this discussion in the future, so stay tuned.

[I kinda wonder if this part should have been formatted as a list.]

Theory #3: Stand Alone Episodes

The Wicked Theory Podcast definitely has a well-established format, but I would theorize that they boys may throw that out the window, though they’re bad at sports and their aim won’t be good, and you’ll hear some deep dive discussions into specific topics. This should be very interesting if it happens.

[He’s right my aim is terrible. Look what happened when I tossed him into the mix.]

Theory #4: More Ed

I’m not saying Ed is quiet, I’m just guessing that we’ll see more of Ed’s impact on the show in 2017. What is Ed’s impact on the show? Even I don’t know this, but whatever it is, his brand of geekery and film knowledge will become more prevalent, in the coming year, though he’ll probably not be getting a title change anytime soon.

[I wanted to copy & paste the above, in here, but swap Ed's name for Palmer’s because it would be funny, but I’m going to eat this sandwich instead.]

Theory #5: More Guests

Yeah, obviously I don’t technically count as a guest anymore, but aside from Grant, Stef, Sara, and Prof, I would expect some of them more often and perhaps, some other voices will get added to the mix as well.

[This feels vaguely specific. Or specifically vague. Can’t tell which.]

Theory #6: Live Listen Hangouts

Remember that time it was Christmas 2016 and the boys recorded something before the live show on Saturday and then Bill played that episode and hung out in the chat? Of course you don’t… unless you’re Bill, myself, or MeowGod.

Fear not, though a fun time was had, I would expect that as an experiment that was inconclusive, so perhaps, this will happen again. Because we all know that chat is more fun when Bill’s in it!

[“A Fun Time Was Had” hasn’t really been proven, but the rest of it sounds right.]

Well, if Bill kept that all in, then you know what I’m leaking to you. If not… Keep listening, that’s the sure way to find out what’s going on. And lastly, Ed needs more followers on twitter and more people to tweet him! So make sure you’re following @EdwardOHareTBD and tweet him!

[The above may or may not be all lies. Only time will tell. This conclude our blogcast day.]

Ep. 86 - What's Coming In 2017

This week: we had a live New Years Eve episode and during it we said farewell to all the famous (and the questionably famous) we lost this year! And then to instill hope for the future, we listed off all the cool TV and MOVIE stuff you need to keep an eye on this new year!

'Twas The Night Before Christmas... IN GOTHAM!

Happy Holidays dear friends, The Joker is here with a rewrite of 'Twas The Night Before Christmas! How fun is that!! This comes from our recent Christmas 2016 episode, look for it! Special Thanks to Grant Markham of The Stranger Conversations and 7 Days A Geek podcasts!

Read along!

'Twas the night before Christmas, and all throughout Gotham
the creatures WERE stirring - because we’d all escaped arkham!
We tore through the streets without any care,
We knew that The BatFreak soon would be there;
The Gothamites nestled, all snug in their beds,
Scarecrow’s new toxin, gone straight to their heads
He’d tainted the water they drank from their tap,
A great time for crime! The city was taking a nap‍—‌
When out of the blue a shout from Mad Hatter,
I turned and I shouted “Dear Friend, what’s all the matter?”
Away from the bank vault I flew like the flash,
But I did grab my gun, and a bag full of cash.
Hatter was out in the street, in the wind and the snow,
He shielded his eyes from the storm and some oncoming glow;
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
A crazy black car with a jet engine jammed up its rear,
The driver ejected, how crazy is that?
I knew in a moment it must be The Bat.
Rogues may be rogues but when I called them, they came,
So I whistled, and shouted, and I called them by name:
"Now Clayface, now! Scarecrow, now! Riddler and Penguin,
"On! Harley, on! Two-Face, Go on and get him!”;
"Bring me his organs, bring me them all!
"Yes get him, go get him, or I’ll kill you all!"
I lost track of which way the bat decided to fly,
I didn’t give a damn, I emptied my gun and shot at the sky;
Into a building and up the stairs the bunch of us flew,
Riddler ran past me—‌and Scarecrow did too:
And then in a twinkling, from ahead on the roof
I heard a punch, a crack, a whack and an “oof!”
As we came out the stairwell and glancing around,
Bats shot my poor Harley with a cable that bound!
He was dress'd all in black, from his head to his boot,
Except for one piece which rendered his stealth moot.;
A belt full of toys was flung ‘round his waist,
It was silly bright yellow did he get dressed in a haste?
His eyes‍—‌how they squinted! His scowl: not merry,
Had he no gifts for us? Oh- ho, quite the contrary;
He delivered his boot like a gift with a bow,
And The Penguin went down, face first in the snow;
The Bat spun, and snarled, showing his teeth,
This was a good time: I pulled my knife from it’s sheath.
He took down Two-face, with a double punch to the belly
He used some Bat-Tazer and turned poor Clayface to jelly:
He growled something, that now it was just me and himself,
And I laugh'd when I heard that in spite of myself;
A wink of his eye and a twist of his head
One of his smoke bombs then filled me with dread.
He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work,
Hidden in smoke, he beat me bad, ooo what a jerk,
And laying his Bat-fist across my beautiful nose
That’s the point when he won I suppose...
He bound me up tight, and to his car gave a whistle,
To the street The Bat flew, like the down of a thistle:
But I heard his gruff whisper, before he drove out of sight‍—‌
Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good night.
