Do you ever do that thing where you wake up ages before your alarm, and decide to check tumblr for five minutes then get up. Then you stop scrolling and see it’s one minute till your alarm goes off and you’re like “???? Rude? Where did all that time go?”

The moon’s weird, though, right? It’s there, and there, and then, suddenly, it’s not! And it seems to be pretty far up! Is it watching us? If not, what is it watching instead? Is there something more interesting than us? Hey! Watch us, moon! We may not always be the best show in the universe, but we try!

Cecil Baldwin talks openly about HIV for the first time. I love him, and I’m so incredibly proud of him. Honored to call him a friend, my fictional podcast boyfriend, and a stigma-ending badass.


Cecil Baldwin Reading My Immortal

I feel like not enough people have had the pleasure of hearing Cecil calling Gerrard Way a, “Major Fucking Hottie.”

If you liked Netflix’s Stranger Things, here are some podcasts you might enjoy:
  • Welcome to Night Vale (the community news of a small city in the American Southwest where all conspiracy theories are true and a part of every day life; BONUS - canon interracial gay couple as the main couple)
  • The Message (70-year-old message from outer space, cryptology, things are not as they seem)
  • Limetown (everyone in small town disappears and no one knows what happened to them; follow an intrepid journalist as she investigates)
  • The Black Tapes (sister show to TANIS; demons, investigation into the unexplainable, asshole Alpha Skeptic, and the journalist who tries to sort this all out)
  • TANIS (sister show to The Black Tapes; conspiracy, truth, and the investigation of what Tanis really is, plus an “information specialist” named Meerkatnip)
  • Archive 81 (found footage audio series where nothing is quite as it seems and there’s a building that isn’t exactly right)
  • Alice Isn’t Dead (from the people behind WtNV, a truck driver tries to find her missing wife and she runs into a lot of conspiracies along the way)
  • Within the Wires (again, from the people who brought you WtNV, instructional audio guides that slowly reveal a personal story and the revelation that the world the podcast is set in is that great)
  • The Bright Session (imagine what it would be like if the X-Men went to therapy)
  • The Behemoth (a girl and her monster walk across America)
  • Wolf 359 (the absurd misadventures of a small band of eccentric characters on board the Hephaestus Station in orbit around the dwarf star, Wolf 359, where it’s all fun and games until it’s not and the Blessed Eternal just wants a night light)

Honestly the best version of a night vale film would be if they cast everyone and showed their faces but not Cecil’s. His face would be strategically hidden every time like when they use plants being placed to hide nudity and stuff. They would use Cecil Baldwin’s voice for all his dialogue but you’d never see the face so lip synch doesn’t matter.

Also every shot with Cecil is a new person.

No explanation, just an entirely different actor.

The skin colour and body type could change and no one questions it, it’s just a whole collection of random Cecils.
