#171 Book Club Announcement = The Flash (New 52): Move Forward
Wow seems like only yesterday we recorded episode 170! Really though it was more like 36 hours or so but who is really counting? Awful people are. We have promises to keep and miles to go before we sleep (Dale’s commute). We loved the last New 52 book so much we decided to try it again! The Flash!
“As Mob Rule wages a campaign of crime across Central City, including an electromagnetic blast that plunges the city into darkness, The Flash learns the the only way he can capture Mob Rule and save Central City is to learn how to make his brain function even faster than before-but as much as it helps him, it also comes with a steep price.”
Hoooo boy. Can that New 52 lightning really strike twice in the same place? The place where our hearts are? One of the Pk3 may have been quoted as saying “LOL” but you will have to wait and see if that is even true or a misquote.
Folks… now for the part where it gets real. This happens TONIGHT. By tonight EIGHT issues of The Flash will have to have been read as well as at least 2 books for the roundtable segments omggggg see you in like 7 hours. Stay tuned on Facebook and twitter for a link to that sweet youtube broadcast, eh?

#170 Book Club Announcement = The Fifth Beatle
Better late than never! Look, guys. Pk went a bit off the grid last week, so no new show was recorded for this past Monday. But, we never forgot. We’re still here, guys. Just getting back in the groove is all! TONIGHT we record The Fifth Beatle: The Brian Epstein Story for this week’s show!
"The Fifth Beatle is the untold true story of Brian Epstein, the visionary manager who discovered and guided the Beatles—from their gigs in a tiny cellar in Liverpool to unprecedented international stardom. Yet more than merely the story of “The Man Who Made The Beatles,” The Fifth Beatle is an uplifting, tragic, and ultimately inspirational human story about the struggle to overcome seemingly insurmountable odds. Brian Epstein was homosexual when it was a felony to be so in the United Kingdom, Jewish at a time of anti-Semitism, and from Liverpool when it was considered just a dingy port town. He helped spread the Beatles’ message of love to the entire world, yet died painfully lonely at the young age of thirty-two, consumed by staggering ambition and the endless struggles that came with it.”
Yes, TONIGHT. Was it supposed to be recorded last night? Maybe! But Dale is a little slower to ease back into the real world than most people. He is still back on Utopia with his old pal Red, hooting and hollering and maybe having fun like the way society should be. Slim will be back tonight, too. He was on vacation, too. Cooped up in some house with his child and 2 other children that belonged to Dale and hoooo boy 7 days. 3 kids. 1 Beach house. He’s probably still not completely recovered sorry Slim about that. Jonesy will be there. Probably plopping around on one healthy foot pretending everything is okay while tweeting from Paperkeg’s main account. “Doc says I’ll be fine” he says. First it is his foot and then next thing you know he’s peeing out of some cord attached to his body like our boy Tom Cruise in one of the movies we would potentially record for an unnamed Tom Cruise podcast LOL it’s a passion project what can we say?!
Tonight guys. You know the drill. Social Media. Links to youtube. Refresh those feeds tonight/tomorrow and then probably see you Thursday to get back on track! <33333 XOXO.

168 Book Club Announcement = Swamp Thing: Raise Them Bones
If you thought Black Kiss a subject too taboo for Paperkeg, wait until they read a New 52 book ON PURPOSE.
&#8220;In the 40-years since its debut, Swamp Thing has been graced with some of the best writers in comics from Len Wein to Alan Moore and now, as part of the DC Comics—The New 52, &#8216;American Vampire&#8217; scribe Scott Snyder brings his talents to an all new Swamp Thing series set in the DC Universe.
Following the events of &#8216;Brightest Day,&#8217; Alec Holland has his life back&#8230;but the &#8220;Green&#8221; has plans for it. A monstrous evil is rising in the desert, and it&#8217;ll take a monster of another kind to defend life as we know it!&#8221;
The road to Baltimore leads through the Louisiana Swamps! That&#8217;s right folks, one more show to record before the Pk3 hits 95 South for Charm City. That is why this episode is solely going to be a book club episode. We recorded last show 48 hours ago and we have a lot of stuff to do before heading to Baltimore, so no round table this week - Please DON&#8217;T read into this! This was Dale&#8217;s idea, even, and he WANTS to keep the roundtable segment! We just need to spend some time with family, etc, before we go off on our own for 3 days doing Jiminy knows what for the weekend I mean Baltimore Comic-Con.
On top of that, we record TONIGHT folks. YES. Let&#8217;s get it out of the way. Spend time with family. Pack. Laundry. Diablo 3 on consoles. Want to write us a letter? You&#8217;ve got a few hours - letters at paperkeg dot com! Stay tuned to the social media for a link to our LIVE youtube broadcast TONIGHT! 
We&#8217;ll see you on the other side (Jonesy does not think we&#8217;ll live to see Saturday night).

167 | Black Kiss

Howard Chaykin broke barriers in the 1980s with his adult themed Black Kiss. We also broke barriers when we talked about Black Kiss II some time ago. There are no barriers left as we discuss Black Kiss for the…last time?
