I have heard of the show but knew nothing of it so I added the first episode to an RSS feed I am subscribe to in overcast and listen to it on my phone on the way to work.
As I listened I was quite surprised, this sounded familiar, sort of a bit noir 106. The hero showed a fair amount of cynicism, there were a couple of very negatively portrayed characters and most of the townsfolk were mob minded.
The hero was quick on the draw but noble in a Chandlerish way. He had a much worse temper than Marlow.
After listening I had to check Wikipedia
In the late 1940s, CBS chairman William S. Paley, a fan of the Philip Marlowe radio serial, asked his programming chief, Hubell Robinson, to develop a hardboiled Western series, a show about a “Philip Marlowe of the Old West”.
I’ve been using the plugin for a few prisoner106 posts so am going to count this as a prisoner106 post. It seem to have worked with out any problem. I’d consider it in Beta.
If you are interested in trying out the plugin leave me a comment or send me a DM.
After all the commotion last night I was surprised to hear from the General this morning. She asked me to set up a new club. I was even more surprised to here the general taking over the morning announcements.
You should be able to hear the talk by clicking the image above, in case you can’t here is the transcript:
Good morning villagers, This is the General. Before we start today’s program of music there is some news and an announcement. The loud bang heard yesterday evening should not cause concern, and we strongly recommend you do not ask any questions about it. The Speed Learn program has been suspended and we are initiating a Group Learn project in it’s place. The Group learn project will start with the Village Web Club. Villagers are invited to join the club and learn together. This new style of learning requires no previous knowledge on the part of learners. There will be no teachers, no Guru and no method. Check out http://tinyurl.com/ds106club to find out more.
I’ve already got an account on the club, my home page is up.
The Village Web Club gives some basic information to get villagers started with the basics, as the general says we can all help each other get going. I hope the club will be popular as I suspect we can get some credits using it. Some people have also started a rumour that beneath the club there may be secret layers out of the Rover’s way. I am not going to discuss that here.
