I think 2 and 3 are spot-on.

Also was young Cecil voiced by Cecil? Because I thought it sounded like maxnmona.

That was Cecil doing a teen voice and then sped up 5% to get rid of the bass.

The character's name is not, and never has been, Baldwin. That's the actor's name.

Most of the weather songs are by artists that are successful, full-time touring musicians with fairly large followings. The only exceptions I can think of off the top of my head are Mount Moon and Seth Boyer and maybe the guy from Barcelona we featured last time. I have no idea what his career is like.

I was also at the 10pm Greensboro show last night and I have to say it was a hell of a lot of fun. Cecil seemed much more animated vocally than he usually is on the recorded episodes, and definitely used his acting chops to get the audience worked up and into it (not that it took much effort to achieve that). I hope the episode they performed will be aired soon; it's a really good one and I wish I could talk about it with everyone instead of just the people who were there, for fear of spoiling it.

Also during the Q and A session I got to talk to Joseph Fink briefly about his work with Something Awful and whether that sense of humor inspired Night Vale, and in his answer to me he revealed that SA's own Zach Parsons cowrote a few episodes! I know for sure he mentioned the time traveler episode as having some of his writing, and I think he said Yellow Helicopters did too, but I'm not sure. I was really happy to hear about that, since obviously Zach's brand of alternate-universe weirdness is a perfect fit for Night Vale.

Zack co-wrote ep 18. He was not involved in Yellow Helicopters. He also co-wrote the next episode that will be coming out (ep 34), and another episode that hasn't been scheduled yet. Co-writers are always listed in the episode information and in the credits of the episode.

Any plans to update the mug now that Night Value Community Radio has a logo? Also, if you're thinking plans for the future, I think a non-limited shirt that just has the NVCR logo on the breast would be nice to keep in store.

And on an unrelated note, I have stumbled across a model/actor who is basically an exact match of my image of Carlos: Luciano Szafir.

The one on the mug is our logo. I have no idea what you're talking about.

San Francisco is sold out (although not all tickets are finalized and occasionally people's carts time out and a couple seats open up. So check back occasionally).

Portland and Seattle are both very close to selling out.

A weekend show in Seattle would be a holiday miracle. After living less than a mile from the Neptune for years, I'm moving several hours east tomorrow. That's close enough for a weekend commute, but not a work-night escapade.

Any second shows will be late shows on the same nights as the early shows.

They've actually never been released at midnight, people always just assume they are and then get mad when we release them later as we always do.

I could see people getting too upset by it, but in fairness it was one episode and just a few sentences and as Jeffrey said, it wasn't even really supposed to be that big of a deal. And he made a radically progressive and awesome reason, that the work should go to an actor of color or a gay actor instead of another white washed role. Can't argue that!

As far as I know, no one was upset by it. We made this decision for our own reasons, not as a reaction to anyone being mad at us.

Oh, I think I completely misunderstood this post, sorry.

Yeah, for the most part people have been very happy about the voice change. There is apparently some people really angry on reddit, so I think that means we're definitely doing the right thing.

And to clarify: this is a completely different book than the one we had been planning. That one is, well, no more. Things just shifted very quickly, and making our own book was no longer feasible. This will be an actual, in bookstores everywhere, written to be read by even people who have never heard the podcast, novel. The publisher will be sending out a press release with more details tomorrow, but I'm super excited and it's basically the life goal I've had since I was four years old fulfilled.

Hi everyone. Hadn't checked in in awhile, so I dunno here's some stuff:

1. Everything's sold out except San Diego, Vegas, and the late show in Phoenix. Also we added a free panel and q&a in Portland. Also a free panel and q&a in another city that's at a smaller venue so we're not going to announce the details until right before. Also we're considering adding another show in LA, but we have to decide if we really want to try to do 6 shows in 4 days. http://commonplacebooks.com/live-ev...westcoastjan13/

2. Mark off March in your calenders. We have plans.

3. Live recording of "Condos" will come out soon. It will not be released as a regular episode. More on that soon.

I think that's it. Let me know if you have any questions.

This makes me concerned for any local appearances and the likelihood of there being NO chance for tickets due to the crazies. :/

I will happily fangirl internally, thank you very much.

I just...I love this drat show so much. But not "create situations for characters and discuss them at length the point of an angry argument on Tumblr" love.

The crowds at our live shows are some of the best and most generous audiences any of us have worked with in years of making theater. We've had venues come up to us after and let us know that our audience was the politest and easiest they've ever dealt with.
