    We hope you're hungry.



    Val Staples, Emiliano Santalucia, "Pixel Dan" Eardley, and Eamon O'Donoghue are back to discuss He-Man and She-Ra.

    This week they discuss the MOTUC action-figure sell-outs on MattyCollector. The group weighs and debates both the pros and cons while discussing possible solutions.

    Would like to chime in on the Alchemy bit. Real world definitions of alchemy are like anything else from the middle ages replete with multiple meanings. The word can be used to describe areas of study that range from turning base metals into precious metals, seeking eternal life (the philosophers stone), to hunting for the divine in ones self. The main theme if there is one that ties all the usages together is the mystical transformation of something common to something special or magical. While one of these usages lead to the modern concept of chemistry and indeed does share a common linguistic root, the term itself did have quite a lot of mysticism tied to it. Another thing to consider is that in current genera fandom such as current fantasy novels and many RPG games, alchemy is used as the term for an ordered study of magical effects and principals. I just wanted to give a little background why they probably felt it was quite appropriate for the character to use the term in the bio.

    The show will always be around 1 to 2 hours long.
    Sometimes more, sometimes less.

    For anyone who likes the show doesn't have a big block of time to devote to the show straight through, my recommendation is just to listen to it in pieces.

    That's what I do with a lot of podcasts. I listen to them in pieces throughout the week.
    Good for in the car, when you're working out, etc.

    -that pre-order idea won't happen because of the cost DR would charge, and the fact that the minute-sell-out-mania helps to keep the momentum going.

    Mattel knows EXACTLY why it won't do pre-orders, and it's all about money, which makes sense. Ah well.

    I am also afraid of the bubble bursting. I do not believe that there are so few 10+ orders. I just don't buy it. If there are few orders like that, then Mattel is arranging large bulk orders with online retailers and comic shops/toy shops re-sellers before the sale. It just doesn't make sense otherwise.

    Eamonn, PUNCH PUNCH PUNCH!!!



    I loved listening to Emiliano's Soap Dish bit!! I'd buy it.

    Yeah, Dan, you speak that "Raquel!"

    Eamonn, that was a great idea about Beast Man's face paint. I like that. It's now part of my MOTU world too As for the races, etc., I think of Beast Man as part of the Berserker Island beast people, but he has that power to control animals and that makes him unique.

    I was afraid when you all started talking about the bios - I didn't want to be called out for my tirade on "Evelyn" (EYE ROLL)

    Regarding Keldor's being an alchemist, here is some stuff from wikipedia:

    "Alchemy is the science of understanding, deconstructing, and reconstructing matter, although it is often seen only as the pursuit of turning common metals into gold."

    "Certain Hermetic schools argue that the transmutation of lead into gold is analogical for the transmutation of the physical body (Saturn or lead) into (Gold) with the goal of attaining immortality."

    "In 1403, Henry IV of England banned the practice of Alchemy. In the late 14th century, Piers the Ploughman and Chaucer both painted unflattering pictures of Alchemists as thieves and liars."

    "Several early alchemists, such as Zosimos of Panopolis, are recorded as viewing alchemy as a spiritual discipline, and, in the Middle Ages, metaphysical aspects, substances, physical states, and molecular material processes as mere metaphors for spiritual entities, spiritual states, and, ultimately, transformations."

    The thing is, Alchemy, used in a bio for a toy line, is almost universally going to be seen as a term meaning gold-maker!

    Great 2nd show guys. It felt more relaxed (not that the first one was tense or anything), and you all seemed to settle in a little more, as well as I settled in a little more to the listening format.

    Good discussions and interesting to listen to. Everyone brings something to the dinner table.

    Great observations by Emiliano on real names and Beast Man being unique. I couldn't agree more with his points.

    I love Val's voice too. Your accent rocks.

    So in listening to the podcast, I guess I'm probably going to be in the minority in that I'm cool with the the introduction of Demo-Man. I think part of the problem is that we no nothing of Demo-Man to date. Why would Hordak choose him, and for what purpose? In my mind, it's a strong possibilty that Hordak thought he could control whatever it is that Demo-Man was by integrating him with Keldor. A plan that we see in the long run ends up backfiring.

    I don't necessarily see Skeletor as diminished by the addition of Demo-Man. Maybe Keldor is still in the "drivers seat" as it were, merely receiving a signifigant power boost with his merging with Demo-Man. Maybe it's not Demo-Man's influence, but the power he receives as part of the merge that makes him more twisted and evil.

    At any rate, I'm looking forward to learning more about Demo-Man. He was involved in Despondos, so perhaps more will be learned about him as we get more of She-Ra's supporting character bios.
