Click here to download FRIDAY FIX: DØM Year in Review

Photo by Bruce PressAs has become our tradition here at Dark Øverlord Media, Scott and I sat down in December to chat about the year gone by … the year ahead … the upcoming SuperBowl Saturday sales event … 

I won't lie, Junkies, as ever, it's been a big year for us.  And a big year ahead. Makes me tired just thinking about it. Two tours, five stories published, the second annual SiglerFest, Baby McButter as a cake … just so many great things. I swear we don't ramble. Kinda. 

We shout out one meeelion people here, as it's a whole year gone by: Scott Pond, Myke Cole, Peter Brett, Bill Prady, Joshua Bilmes, SpaceX, John Landis, Mur Lafferty, Princess Scientist, The Ice Tray, the Diva of Design, Keith and the Girl, Danny Hatch, Bella, PC Haring, Scott's cousin Erica, the Harveys, Surly Amy Davis Roth, Starla Hutchon, and one meeeeelion more Junkies. 

One thing is as true as it's ever been: I have the best job ever, and I am lucky beyond measure that I get to work with my best friend every day.

Great information about the year to come. Can not wait to see what you two come up with you two ROCK! I have to say the name Martha sounds like a good name to give to the sound booth of doom. Really excited about all of the new goodies that will come out next year.

On

Since we're here naming sound booths and we're going with female names, (Bocephus could be female... I guess... maybe... ok, just for the sake of my point), I'm thinking a good name for the sound booth of doom would be Cheboygan. That is a fine female name. Plus, everytime FDO steps in, it could be like going home again. Say 'hi' to Donny Jewel while you're in there.

CALL THE SOUNDBOOTH "THE VOID"

I definitely like Cheboygan, but you could do the flip-side and call it Hollywood

If it were my sound booth, I'd name it Jessica Alba. That way, when asked, I could say, "Don't bother me, I'll be in Jessica Alba all day laying down some mad oration." Alternates include, in no particular order: Helen Mirren; Jennifer Aniston; both of the Two Broke Girls; Margaret Thatcher; Lucy Lui... I could go on but I think that's a good start.

Harking back to the good old days:

 

The Not in the Closet soundbooth or the Out of the Closet soundbooth.

"The Dark Overloads Thinking Chair of Doom Room"  I am not the most imaginative of people...

I'll keep my eye open for the pre-order. I'm a little bummed that I missed my possibly last chance at a Sigler tour and hope the wifey gets better.

Happy new year

THE SOUND RUTH

Instead of the house that Ruth built,you'll have the house built inside of Ruth.

Oh wait, you're not a baseball fan, never mind.

Or just paint a number on the door. You create life in that sound booth, what was the number to the lab where the Prawatt were created, and Quentin visits a version of it in Prawatt space?

Cheers, MLB

The sound booth should be called "Smells like bad meat or good cheese".

Imma be all up in Margaret Thatcher! Then I could call the booth "The Iron Lady."

There is something in there, a smell I can't quite identify nor locate. Pretty sure it's what Cthulhu smells like.

"The Iron Lady"... Hmmm, I like that!

How about "Skank Lab" for where the FDO brews his works ready for the eager junkies ...

Or "Ma Tweedy" as you know she'll work Scott hard, and there'd be no inappropriate procrastination or innuendo with her about!

hows about the "soothing dulcet tones" studio.  you know, to make you sound smart and professional or sum bullshit.

Since Sigler goes in, and little baby horror monsters come out, I think the sound booth should be called Marie or Mommy.

Hmmmm, I seem to remember that there used to be talk about a "Martha" on this site many years ago. I believe it was th name given to some bodies left hand. Gives you a new perspective on that. ;-p

Oh, I also remember "Martha" and can confirm the reference.  I wonder why that's the name that immediately came out of A's mouth?  So strange...

There are a lot of great names for the sound booth here. I'd like to suggest the Døøm Machine since that's the space/place/equipment which Scott uses to create all of the audio bliss for us Junkies.

Plus I like keeping the Døøm moniker involved. It's pretty much become it's own mythos for those who directly contribute to the Siglerverse in one way or another.

Someone once called it "The Closet of Døøm". I still like it.

Just listened to this episode yesterday and I desperately want to come up with something juvenile and vaguely dirty to call the recording booth of doom.

But I got nuthin' Frown

You,with nothing juvenile and vaguely dirty? Say it ain't so! It can't be true!

I know, right!?

I even asked the hubbie to help come up with something and we both failed. So disappointing. Guess we'll have to just take solace in Sigler getting all up in Martha Tongue Out

Booth name:  "AUDIO COFFIN: where stories are put to death."

Hmmm... a name for the recording studio of Doom...

Addonexus - Latin for Place of Death

Addofatum - Latin for Place of Doom

You could add Sanctus before either to make it the "Sacred" Place of Death of Doom.  SANCTUS ADDONEXUS or SANCTUS ADDOFATUM Both sound AWESOME and imposing, and I can totally hear the FDO putting a deep, menacing voice to the words.  But saying you are going to be inside the Iron Lady all day does conjure a much more interesting visual!
