The Metal God? On TSOYA? This should be good.

Thank you Jesse.

At times, TSOYA seems disproportionally weighted to HipHop/RnB, which in itself is fine and wonderful, but to get other genres included is a very good thing.

Rob Halford's just a great interviewee.

Halford continues to be a class act in all that he does. He seems like a genuinely cool, nice and totally professional dude.

Well, he's an English gentlemen, after all.

Really looking forward to listening to this at work tonite, Jesse. Kudos for going outside your usual realm, as mentioned above.

Sometimes it seems like Jesse is a person with almost no pathos.

WoW gold selling robits agree that Thorn interviews lack emotional punch!

Harsh!

Just to clarify: I wasn't saying that Jesse's interview lacked emotional punch (though I don't know what the bot was getting at -- probably that) -- just that even when you think Jesse is going to pull out some dark thing, he confesses that he loves Christmas and everything to do with the holiday season. I thought it was a good interview and I like it when there's a little tension as there was with the documentarians when Jesse was questioning their somewhat lax take on their subjects' racism & other evilness...

I always thought JJGo was filled with pathos.There's a lot of heavy subject matter, like death, childhood trauma, and Jordan's kidney stones.

Fun show! I completely loved the Halford section. I would have enjoyed it if the music selections included a little more metal (I think listeners could go in and out of that without really knowing what black metal sounds like) but I suppose it's understandable as Jesse doesn't even like it.

I tend to have a negative reaction to people like those documentarians, who are indie rock types who get into black metal, but they certainly seem to have gone about the film in a good way. I'd be interested to see the thing. Especially if they talk with the character they mentioned, Bård Faust, who is one of the more interesting people from the scene to me. He's a guy who stabbed someone to death essentially just in the name of doing so.

Also, Christmas metal from 1986.

The movie's playing at one of the indie theaters in town later this month, I am excited to see it.

This may have been old news to everyone else, but I for one was flabbergasted to find out that Halford came out totally by accident.

On the subject of pathos, one of the things I enjoy most about TSOYA is Jesse's insistence that the interviews stay fun. And not that they can't discuss relatively serious topics, but when the interviewee starts grandstanding (Janeane Garofalo comes to mind), Jesse always pulls it back around to keep it awesome.

I'm not saying that there isn't room for serious talk about serious issues, or shows that affect you deeply and cause you to rethink your life. But I feel like I have plenty of options for that. And I have plenty of options of stupid, brainless fun. But what I've found rather difficult to find, and why I've latched on so completely to everything MaxFun, is something smart, sincere, and consistently fun. It's the thing that separates TSOYA from the overwhelming majority of public radio and something desperately needed.
