Gone Mobile!

Monday, August 27th, 2012

In an effort to make things easier for people to find us, especially in this age of mobile webbing (Sheesh, that’s SO Spider-man of us), we’ve added a mobile version of the site. Now you can find an easier to read version on your mobile devices. We hope. Let us know if this actually works for you.

Puppy in a Monolith… Sort of…

We here at Touching the Monolith want to apologize for the drought in podcasts of late. It’s probably someone’s fault, but we’re not pointing blame, because that would 1) be admitting there’s a problem and 2) admitting that someone caused it. Since 1) there obviously is an issue or some such and 2) it’s no one’s fault really, we’re just going to post this with a sort of Monolith Style cute puppy picture, and hope that no one gets too upset that we lost a couple episodes and haven’t posted a new one in a bit. We will post another soon-ish. I mean, it’s going to be ep 100, so it’ll probably be special or about Doctor Who, right? You all love Doctor Who. Maybe we should come up with a parody and call it Decor Who. How would that sound?


Holy Cat-Tastrophe, Batman!

Ladies and others who read this site,

We have a bit of bad news. Our main recording platform, an old HP Pavilion laptop, has given up its hard drive to the great spirit in a grand self-sacrifice to save me table space. Or, in other words, “it’s dead, Bob.”

In the process of the hard drive failure, we seem to have lost two unfed episodes. We will attempt, probably quite boldly, to recover the data, but the “click, click, click, SCRAAATCH” sound coming from the drive sort of leaves a bleak impression of what we might be able to pull from the drive. We do plan on taking this up to a professional who has better tools than we do (which is saying quite a bit, really.)

Please stay tuned to the website, and to Facebook for more news. There will be more.

Where's Wall-E

In an effort to evolve the podcast, we’ve decided that the show notes should be more complete. So, here’s a summary of what’s in the show:

Yoda Rant.

Doctor Who: is it For Kids – Friendly for Adults or For Adults – Friendly for Kids ~ What went wrong?
The Doctor’s jaunts into C.S. Lewis and Charles Dickens; Clever, Very Clever, doing the Locomotion.

Do Touchers want to be touched by the opening Rant?

Where’s Wall-E. Sonic the Hedgehog, there are many versions.

Hugo Nominees for Dramatic Short Form Presentation – Heavily weighted to Doctor Who. Where was Fringe?
Community: the Hugo Awards episode Explanation. What is The World Science Fiction Convention (WorldCon), but more important Where is it?


How it turns out that Lexx is all Kai’s story.

Inception Still  not in 3-D.

Pimps of the Geek:
Lejon: None – Discussion of Total Recall
Bob: None – Discussion of Total Recall


Episode 70 – Time and Time and Time Again

Wednesday, April 20th, 2011

Lejon and Bob discuss where time went wrong. OK, where Time Travel Movies and TV shows went wrong. It’s a thing, and they try desperately to not talk about Doctor Who, and fail.

This Ep is brought to you as a Special Delivery in time for your Spring Holiday (Yep, the New Season of Doctor Who Kick off!)

Inconsistent to the last!!

Saturday, May 1st, 2010

We have no post this week. Unfortunately, our special guest host MicrowavedBoy’s ambient radiation caused a problem on our reel-to-reel, which in turn destroyed the episode. He will be back with us again sometime, but stay tuned for next week’s continuation of our 3-part episode!
