F*** Yeah Thrilling Adventure Hour

theshoresofme:

"Sorry, I can’t hang out with you, friends who love me and want to be around me. I have to spend all night thinking about today’s 30 Days of TAH question….No, you don’t understand, I can only pick ONE PERSON. I have to make this count.”

Seriously, fyeahthrillingadventurehour. This one is stressful.

Oh my gosh, we’re really, really sorry!

What's a good episode of Sparks Nevada to show someone who is new to the show (preferably one with Cactoid Jim in it)?

Welllll… The Bens recommend "Do the Fight Thing" as a good jumping in point, and it really is, summing up the states of affairs of the first year or so pretty tidily. Your friend will come out of that 20 minutes with a good handle on who the major players are and how they interact. And y’know, Jim saves the day and is astonishingly handsome and whatnot. Whateverrrrrrrrr.

(Caveat: Jumping in anywhere into Sparks Nevada is spoiler city, and this episode is the culmination of a lot of threads to that point. But if you are really trying to sell your friend and setting them up with the first three or four episodes isn’t going to work, give it a shot.)

Or if you’re just really trying to put forth the HEY NATHAN FILLION agenda, Cactoid Jim in “Space-coach” is a good bet, being a relatively self-contained story, and a good intro to the tone of the show. The downside of this recommendation is no Sparks Nevada, but if you can sell them on Red—not hard, she’s the best—it’s only a few episodes into the beginning of the series that she shows up.

(TAH has made t-shirts, mugs, pins, yearbooks, and calendars. What TAH merch would YOU like to own? Action figures? Finger puppets? You name it. What sort of t-shirts/mugs/etc? What variations on existing products?
Also, show us your stuff! Got any signed posters or already have a signed Graphic Novel? Any older merchandise or Kickstarter rewards you can’t get anymore you want to make us jealous of? Show it off!)

Yay!!! I love showing off merch because I am a self-confessed show off.

Anyway, pictured above are my very first merch posters that I got for Christmas 2013. My graphic novel which I did not get from the kickstarter thing because unfortunately I only really got into TAH AFTER it finished (biggest regret tbh). My graphic novel has Paget’s, Paul’s and Marc’s signatures because I love them and I was pretty shy so I didn’t ask for other autographs (2nd biggest regret).
Finally, two signed posters featured the signatures of: Paul, Paget, Marc, Mark, Craig, Autumn and Joshua. The signed posters and the graphic novel are my faves and I would definitely save them if my house was on fire.

Merch I’d love to see would be something like inflatable robot fists, THE CROACH PLUSH YOU GUYS WHAT HAPPENED TO THAT LETS KICKSTART IT.
ahem - and I’ve seen some fan made sparks themed necklaces?! um yes!!! I’ll have 10 please. oh my gosh you guys and something jib janeen themed like a necklace that says ‘hi all my buddies’ or ‘shoutout to Jupiter’ bc that would be so awesome.
Probably like a mug or something because I love mugs :)

30 Days of TAH - Day Eighteen: The Merch!
Today’s question is two fold.  
TAH has made t-shirts, mugs, pins, yearbooks, and calendars. What TAH merch would YOU like to own? Action figures? Finger puppets? You name it. What sort of t-shirts/mugs/etc? What variations on existing products?
Also, show us your stuff!  Got any signed posters or already have a signed Graphic Novel?  Any older merchandise or Kickstarter rewards you can’t get anymore you want to make us jealous of?  Show it off!
Look at the AH-DORABLE (as Jib Janeen would say) finger puppets that slodwick made for today’s graphic!  Thanks so much slodwick!!

First off, before I post any of my answers, I must give a shout out to slodwick. Those finger puppets look awesome!!!
Now to answer the first part. As far as variation of existing products go, I would love to see a poster and/or t-shirt dedicated to each of the show’s segments. It seems that a lot of items have been rotated out over the years, but a consistent source of design or changing designs for all of the segments would be really cool. But, for the moment what is available is awesome (Particularly the Dan Bucatino mugs).
As for what would I love to buy of new products in the future? Yes finger puppets and action figures would be awesome. But I can think of a certain Martian plush that I can’t wait until it hits the marketplace for purchase.

As for merch I have purchased, I was in such a rush to grab all things Thrilling Adventure Hour before the Welcome to Night Vale Crossover that I purchased the graphic novel. It thankfully arrived two days before Comic Con.

Then while attending the TAHWTNV Crossover I made two additional purchases to commemorate the momentous occasion.

This is a little off topic but I must say it since I’m showing off the merch for that day. I am pleased to learn that the Crossover will be released soon. I look forward to getting it and listening along with all the other fans for a second time.

30 Days of TAH, Day 19 - 24 Hours with a Character

There you are, minding your own business, when this…. being… appears in front of you. This weird thing, with pink spinning halos all around it.  

"Greetings, bag of chemicals and meat!" it says, in a naggingly familiar voice.  "I am a cosmic being with a name so delightfully complex it would take the rest of your life just to speak it!  I am bored, and so I have found you, an arbitrary pile of organs and nerves arranged in a metabolic system with the mayfly illusion of consciousness!  For the most whimsical of reasons, I shall open up a portal and allow you to spend spend twenty four of your laughable Earth-hours with any character in the entire universe of that podcast to which you waste your ridiculously limited mortal life listening!  Go to its universe, and amuse me with your antics!"

"But only one?" you ask.  "I can’t hang out with Sparks and Croach?  Frank and Sadie?  Banjo and Gummy? This seems unnecessarily convoluted and arbitrary!”

"It is!  Don’t think about the logistics too hard, dumby, this is wish fulfillment. Now tell me, to where do I zap you with my limitless powers and which with whom do you whimsically dally?  And make it good, skin balloon, because I am not tearing apart the very seams of the fabric of time and space to NOT be amused!"

Well?  You have 24 hours in one TAH universe with a TAH character from that universe. What do you do?

The biggest thanks to annadiplosis for providing today’s artwork — on short notice even!  Also thanks to shannondapper for re-writing today’s question when your regular 30 Days posting mod was feeling super uncreative.
