Quackcast 197 - The sidekicks take over the QC

Ozoneocean at 12:00AM, Dec. 16, 2014


Carrying on from last weeks Quackcast inspired by Kawaiidaigakusei's Thoughtful newspost article “An Ode to Sidekicks”, this time the DD community weighs in on the subject and they give us their wise, educated and highly considered expert opinions on the subject of the sidekick in stories! Again Kawaii joins Banes and I, but this time she practices her amazing talent for amusing voices, so for the first time since Skoolmunkee there's someone other than Banes and I doing a voice. Rachel Maddow drops in and even Matt Foley to tell us about his VAN down by the RIVER! All in all what people have to say about the different aspects of sidekicks in fiction is really quite interesting, have a listen and see! Oh, and Gunwallace's epic theme for Harkovast is fantastic, I can't wait for a Peter Jackson Movie adaptation!

What are you talking about, meng?... And still one of my favorites ...I'll no longer make fun of people...

I liked Scarface but it was really, really weird that all the main "Cuban" and other South and Central American parts were played by whites. I think the main thing I got from Pachino's performance was "Meng". He said that a LOT.

Oh no... I was just kidding... It's way better than Pacino's attempt at Cuban accent... I tend to take my jokes too far sometimes... You gotta hear my impression if Arnold...

Thank you for listening to the Quackcast as well as the honest feedback, tupapayon. I apologize that I flubbed it up or caused any offense. Now I have a sense of the way Dick Van Dyke felt after his iconic portrayal of an off-radar cockney accent in Mary Poppins.

Somehow I just felt like eating at Taco Bell... Yo quiero Taco Bell...

@tupapayon: You're not suggesting Scrappy's a Chihuahua, are you? That would be so wrong... :D

Having the Mexican as the short little dog?!... Lol... I'm too tall and handsome for that roll.., yes... I'm tall (maybe not too tall), dark (not really dark), and handsome (would I lie?)... Great voices characters you did... Except for Kawai, your Hispanic accent need some work... Lol...

I find the appellation "-girl" sexist. And no I will not be wearing the cut-off school-girl outfit and pleated mini-skirt. Coveralls, a balaclava and a trench coat. ;-)
