Useless Drivel – The 62nd One

Sleep DeprivationSo, this week, the post is not getting even close to my best half-assed effort. With everyone in Casa de Matt sick (me, the wife, and the 5 month old kid) for the better part of 2 weeks, it was amazing enough a recording got done that wasn’t just Robert.  Consider all of this a place holder for the regular crap I write, but hey, you still get a full podcast episode anyway.  Besides, I know you all don’t read this stuff anyhow.  Enjoy, it’s a brand new episode of Useless Drivel – A Podcast Without a Point.

After a little looking around his Deviant Art page I saw that this isn’t the first time Mr. Medri has taken beloved characters and completely re-imagined them. He’s taken the Justice League and made them western, Spider-man as Steampunk, Rockabilly Batman characters, and his take on The Avengers in a fantasy setting! Fantastic stuff.
