New Podcast Coming Soon!

Another month rolls by and we still haven't released a podcast? It's a good thing we have such loyal listeners, otherwise everyone would've switched over to the Ceiling Fan by now. However, we do have a podcast coming up this Saturday, so stay tuned to hear the results of our Ultimate Odyssey Fan Contest!

In other news, we have a new album cover to dissect and analyze - this time it's a new look for Album 31: Days to Remember. Of all the repacks they've done thus far, this one tops the list for me. Perhaps it's the simplicity of the cover or maybe it's the fact that Whit is wearing a Santa hat. Either way, this redesign marks the first time they've chosen to represent a variety of episodes rather than simply illustrating just one episode. I hope they choose to go this route for the remainder of the yet-to-be-designed repacks.

I'll admit I actually liked the original cover, mainly since it depicted It's a Pokenberry Christmas - one of my personal favorites. However, this cover more than makes up for it, as it portrays half of the entire album with this one photo. My only question is why they chose to include Marvin in this photo, as his character hadn't been introduced yet. It's worth noting that these are the four characters on the playing pieces for the Answer That! DVD game.

And is it just me, or does it look like Eugene is wearing goggles? ;)


  1. Doesn't Eugene always look like he's wearing goggles? :-)

  2. No, actually. Eugene normally wears transparent glasses - such as in Wish You Were Here. Although there does seem to be seem inconsistencies, as his "goggles" make another appearance in Through Thick and Thin

  3. Perhaps it has to do with the angle of the light on his lenses.

  4. I'm still confused about Marvin being there. That's just weird.

  5. I do like the excitement on this new cover - but yes the Marvin thing is weird and this IS the 1st time Eugene looks different and I guess it IS because he is not wearing transparent glasses...

    and is it just me or do they keep putting the same drawings of caricatures on the back... I wish they would make new ones to put on the back - for example - I liked how they have whit and also a drawing of him drying a dish. I think they should do that with Eugene, like have him holding something or doing something then put him on the back.

  6. Great job noticing Marvin, although he isn't a playing piece on the Answer That! game. Tamika is.

    I like your podcast. This is the first time I've been to your site, but I like it. Keep up the good work!
