After Doktor Faux wrings out his towel, he decides to jump on the next freight-train out of Hypercube and takes a night off. This leaves the HyperCOMM in complete anarchy as Elvis Martini and Dok Ellis hijack the feed and throw a huge internet party full of bad connections, reverb, dropped calls and cheap audio equipment. It’s an ORGY of SLACK as Time for the Show is mutated into a complete free-for-all featuring all your HyperCOMM favorites such as Lord Ferg, Cosmac, Scalpod, Marthartha, Agent Lloyd and a rotating cast of callers attempt to save the Show from itself.
Doktor Faux and his crew of scallywags embark on a starry adventure aboard a pleasure saucer to sample sounds of the universe. Peas fantasizes about the RenFair. RoboPeas beats the real Peas at Is-It-A-Band. Caller 23 proposes a doomsday machine. Peas suffers from a case of Space Happy and ejects himself from the escape hatch. Dr. Faux teaches us how to 3-point turn in a spaceship with a trailer.
Dok Faux explores all of the music that “they” don’t want you to hear. A history of the PMRC is presented and discussed. A new robot is commissioned just in time for Is-It-A-Band. Caller 23 tries to play Pokémon Go! On a Motorola RAZR plugged directly in to the wall using the cord from a box fan.
And they said robots couldn’t make music… Well, ShoRogan proves everyone wrong in this episode, as robot generated music is aired throughout. Rev. Ferg scores his first win on Is It A Band. Dr. Faux diddles while he dallies, Fidd Chewley is played by both Fidd and Caller23, and Peas shows up to talk about his teeth.
If all you wanted for Christmas this year was ten pounds of Reverend Caller #23 in a five-pound bag, then Christmas has come early for you. The role of Fidd Chewley is played by Reverend Caller #23, who reveals insights about “your fucking face”, the role of “peas” is played by Fidd Chewley, and the role of Doktor Faux is played by the tenuous exterior he portrays in public to poorly hide his racist leanings. Don’t listen to this episode unless you’ve already skipped listening to it!
“… and thus the imperative which refers to the choice of means to one’s own happiness, that is, the precept of Time for the Show, is always hypothetical; the action is not commanded absolutely, but only as the means to another purpose, especially when ipecac syrup is not available.” — Immanuel Kant
