Episode 27: Hobbslawn (aka ‘Hot Episode’)

Episode 27: Hobbslawn (aka ‘Hot Episode’)

August 17, 2020

What happens when two hosts sit in 37+degree heat for two hours? Episode 27 is what happens! Take a swirling trip upon our magic yet rapidly descending ship of heat delirium and enjoy Jon’s pitch in Act 3’s ‘Hobbslawn’. A quaint English village is about to experience some ancient, righteous anger, and it's not pretty!

Act 1 as always sees feedback on our last pitch (2 eps ago) and my god it was hot. Act 2 has a few quick japes around three horror movies – Host, Culture Shock and The Beach House – did I say how hot it was? And as always Act 4 is the pitch post-mortem but this time with 15 minutes of the most bizarre, heat-induced rambling nonsense that one is likely to hear. Normally this would be edited more objectively, but one suffers PTSD trying to do so. So, enjoy the sound of two men fighting a not-so-silent war of attrition against hellish temperatures whilst trying to remain somewhat coherent. Henceforth, this shall be referred to as ‘The Hot Episode (Or ‘How I learned to stop worrying about this huge red flag highlighting the imminent death of the planet’).

Act 1 – 05:07m – Listener Feedback on Ep25 ‘The Moon Cursers’ (and ep 26)
Act 2 – 17:29m – Last fortnight’s horrorishy cultural highlights
Act 3 – 22:42m – Horror Pitch: Hobbslawn
Act 4 – 52:46m - Pitch Post-mortem & title brainstorm + website offers, history etc.

July 27, 2020

King George III has just taken the throne and may still hold the colonies, but back home in pitch-black London-by-night, eerie things have been going down and Link Boys are in the frame… That’s right, its Episode 25 and Dave delivers another one of his historical Horror Movie pitch/walk-throughs in Act 3 – “The Moon Cursers”. Its proper grim, so consider this fair warning. It’s worth it though, I’m sure.  

Act 1 as usual sees listener feedback on the previous episode’s horror pitch - Jon’s ‘he Lies Bleeding’, and Act 2 covers off Horror Movies Metamorphosis, Relic, and 1BR / Apartment 1BR (though there’s more to come on 1BR next week in a special episode - shhhhh!!!).

Act 3 of course is the pitch – that is why you are here – and in Act 4 we get the usual commentary followed by the History of Podcasting and some of it’s key figures, as well as how you can get involved in the latest print-publishing phenomenon: ‘The Podcaster’s Podcaster’ and ‘Podcaster’s Monthly’.

Episode 22: Metal Sky

Episode 22: Metal Sky

June 15, 2020

Welcome back – it’s the return of LmaHmPod! That’s right, after 3 long months of lockdown, Jon & Dave opted not to swap fluids any longer and instead committed themselves to a socially-distanced recording session – the first ‘PoCo’ if you will.

So, without further ado, it’s a new Jon pitch and it’s a brutal one. He didn’t earn the moniker ‘Thirty Ded Kidz’ (3DK) for nothing – check it out in Act 3! Alongside that there’s a general catch-up in Act 1 as feedback was covered in the Memento Morisode, and in Act 2 we dive through a few new horror movies (Color Out of Space, Ready Or Not, Let Us Pray, Sweetheart) and books that we love.

Hope you’re all well and generally tickety-boo. Bring a tea, get comfy and tuck in.

Act 1 – 04:03m – Lockdown catch-up & feedback
Act 2 – 15:29m – Last 3 month’s horrorishy cultural highlights

Memento Morisode #1 : Behind the Curtain

April 8, 2020

LMAHMpod’s Memento Morisodes are the new normal until the Corona virus ‘does one’, to use the parlance of the locality, and this is the first one so get involved!

Kicking off with an update on LMAHMpod’s situation, courtesy of Ozzy, we move swiftly into feedback on Episode 20’s pitch ‘King Fae’ before a tidy, sensible and completely uninterrupted wrap-up. All of which not only involves singular host Dave, but all the voice-artist guests we’ve had on the last 9 or so episodes – even Robert Durst is back! So six guests, plus Dave, but no Jon. It's a real glimpse behind the curtain...

Act 1 – 04:15 – Feedback on King Fae
Act 2 – 13:48 – Wrap Up and a quick note on all our other Podcasts.
