    Please, please, please, more H.R. Giger. This has to be a recurring thing. It’s so funny it makes me pee in your pants.

  2. Dennis Sorensen says:

    This is the most hilarious thing I have heard in a long time. Thank you so much.

    More Giger, please!

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this stuff. I am in tears listening to this. Brilliant, brilliant stuff. Please make this an ongoing bit.

  4. Erica says:

    I agree with everyone, but especially jsnvndbrk. There is a definite Giger/pee correlation.

  5. JLNordberg says:

    I’ve listened to both H.R. Giger sketches about 50 times now. People were wondering why tears were streaming down my face at work. I don’t think I’ve laughed this hard in ages.

    More please!!

    Then you’ll be happy to know I’m editing a new one right now. With Andrew Lloyd Webber and Don Dimello.

    Best thing on the show. I can’t stop saying dyno-sour, and telling my wife to get back to her whale-bone cage.

    More H.R. Geiger! Pleeeze! I need him to endure my own whalebone cage. Love the podcast!

    I nearly died when I first heard these; I had previously seen all of Giger’s actual interviews, so your fantastic take on him was especially hysterical. My wife was blown away when I made her watch them after listening to your clips, particularly when he actually said “dyno-sour”. Also, he looks like an evil Chekov.

    Who is your voice actor for him? He’s goddamned BRILLIANT.

  11. Matt says:

    That’s me, Danny. Thanks very much!

    RIP, H.R. Giger. He was born dead, and is still… stillborn.

    Hello and welcome to my blog . I’m Amber Crouch.
    I have always dreamed of being a book writer but never dreamed I’d make a career of it. In college, though, I aided a fellow student who needed help. She could not stop complimenting me . Word got around and someone asked me for writing help just a week later. This time they would compensate me for my work.
    During the summer, I started doing academic writing for students at the local college. It helped me have fun that summer and even funded some of my college tuition. Today, I still offer my writing skills to students.
