TTYL Podcast #12 – Strip Search Day 9

Strip Search Day 9 Maki Lexxy

#StripSearch! Man, what a week for #StripSearch. The show got narrowed down to its #FinalThree, and the lead up to the show’s #conclusion brought a #truly #exciting #twist. Hashtag. With all this excitement, you might think That Thing You Like had abandoned its sworn duty to provide coverage of the show via the podcast medium; We are happy to report that, had you assumed that, you would be wrong!

Day 9 of the show was one of my (Brian!) personal favourites,with a heavy focus on unadulterated webcomic business in the elimination challenge. Maybe an episode about contract parsing isn’t for everyone. It is, however, definitely for me. Plus, Day 9 culminated in a contest of art-willpower between the talented, beardwall-ed Maki Naro and famed commenter-on-this-website / dino-roller Lexxy Douglass.

In this episode of That Thing You Like, your intrepid hosts talk about the negotiation styles displayed by the final four artists, Robert Khoo’s struggle against his brother’s early entry into the lunchbox market, and what exactly makes Lexxy Douglass an apparent internet lightning rod. Seriously, what is it about people believing in themselves that the internet hates so god damn much?

In the words of Khoo himself, this episode will move that tin.

Thanks for listening! If you like the show, maybe share it with your friends? Or you could always rate us on iTunes? No? That’s okay. We can just hang. That Thing You Like just wants to talk. How about that PS4 conference tonight, eh*? They sure took it to Microsoft in a big bad way. Exciting developments in the world of technology marketing!

  1. I disagree with you both. You’re wrong.

    I enjoyed this movie so much that I went back and watched Wrath of Khan to appreciate the connections.

    Also, I simultaneously said “Avengers” when Brian pointed out that Avengers was the last good blockbuster. This episode, I like Brian more than I like Chris.

    • Our bad! Rest assured, even though I haven’t played Starcraft since I was 12, this Day[9] fellow has nothing on me. I would Zerg up his Protoss. And then, something something, Firebat, Kerrigan, win?

  2. You know what is awesome? Listening to a podcast while you’re coloring your comic and then THE PODCAST CALLS YOU OUT SPECIFICALLY BY NAME AND SAYS TO KEEP WORKING HARD ON YOUR COMICS.

    My day is officially made.

    (AND I just finished coloring!)

    • Yay! The artist-affirmation segment worked as intended. Glad we could help you finish them colours. I will beam with pride at the next Oh Joy Sex Toy knowing we helped in some small way.

      For any artist reading this comment: KEEP GOING, DON’T GIVE UP, YOU GOT DIS

      – Brian
