Dan's new toy...
This week our writer, Alan is on strike! It was an absolute train wreck! Unfortunately for Alan he's the editor as well... so he can only be mad at himself. But, with any luck you'll never know by listening to this weeks show. We had a couple new segments, feedback, an OG scout and more! Check out this weeks show, download and enjoy relish in the fact you didn't listen live... or be ashamed that you missed all the extra insight that only the people on talkshoe got to hear. Either way, download, listen and enjoy!

NEWS: Vas built something unique for IE7 and FF 2.0 users... a search option for OGlink (click here) and shortner (also click here) that will let you get to the shortner/oglink redirect pages quicker! Check it out!

OG Manga / Comic Contest email your entry
We finally figured out what you the audience likes for contests... so Dan came up with a manga/comic contest... for which the winners will get a book of the contest... confused?

Here's the deal... every few weeks... Dan will come up with a new manga/comic frame... with an empty comic bubble and it's your job to fill it in and modify for everyones entertainment.

Anyhow this week... we had one more entries that are pretty good.
