Awesomed By YOU

Ok, so it's Wednesday, and you're going through your stack, and as a loyal ABCP Listener you're thinking "Golly gosh heck, if I could pick hero of the week, it would be for this thing that Magog does right there!" or you're thinking "Gohgwhoh Gwohgogo, this sure is a pretty cover to Chew #10 - I hope Evie and Aaron give it some love."

THIS WEEK THAT GIVING CHANCE IS TO YOU FROM ALWAYS! OR SOME OTHER FORMATION OF THAT SENTENCE THAT MAKES MAYBE SOME SENSE.

Evie's abandone-ing her a-su-bebe for the weekend so I need you kids to fill in. No need to tell me to do the dishes or vacuum or feed the cats, I've got all that covered. Where I need you to fill in is in our show.

So here's where we at ABCP find out just how amazingly awesome our listeners and friends are.

I want you guys to send in something really super quick. Doesn't have to be anywhere near pro quality. Audio or video (if you have a webcam). Just has to be you, talking about a category you feel particularly strongly about this week, contributing to a very special awesome episode of what is far and away considered one of the most entertaining comics podcasts on the net with the initials "ABCP."

So here's what I need from you.

1) The first thing you should do, BEFORE your actual review, is say the phrase"....And from the internet, we're the listeners, and we're awesomed by comics!!!" I'll put all of them together in the intro and it will just be totally awesome.

2) For your segment, say who you are, what your category is, and why. Anywhere between 30 seconds to 3-4 minutes is cool - if you get going on a roll let it go as long as you want. "Hey, this is Aaron from New York - I want to talk about MY nominee for panel of the week - that panel in New Mutants 12 where the smiley face robots are blowing each other up. I remember the smile face robots from their first appearance in bla bla bla and they have a special connection to me because they were there when I was first reading bla bla bla and that led to bla bla bla and now I'm on meth," or what have you.

3) Record it however you want. If you've got a mic, do it in Windows Sound Recorder or Garage Band, or download Audacity (free, though a bit complicated) and do it there. Or just talk into your webcam if you've got one of those and you can pry yourself away from Chat Roulette for a few minutes. You can send me the audio file (mp3, wav, aiff, whatever) or post it to your website, or put it up on youtube, or whatever. Just get it to me somehow.

3a) Oh, and I totally meant it on the show. Ladies - I want these from you especially. (NOTE: edited out vulgar language used at 1:00 AM) We take pride in our gender diversity.

WE CAN MAKE THIS WORK IF WE ALL STICK TOGETHER!

Let's make this episode the episode to be the most awesomed by EVER!!

Everyone put your hands on the screen ... one two three GO TEAM!

Deadline is mid-day Sunday, say 2:00 Eastern. You can e-mail the audio files to awesomedbycomics (at) gmail.com. OR you can post it on your own page and send us the link to it, and I'll go get it. Whatever's easiest for you. Now get out there and let's try this thing.
