Sometimes 13 is now live. It's one of the most labour-intensive podcasts I've ever done (it took five days to make). It's also - I think - one of the best.
The featured story is HP Lovecraft's, 'From Beyond', one of my favourites among HPL's shorts, and one I've wanted to read for a long time - not just because it's among my favourites from Lovecraft, but because it also gives me the chance to go into maximum ham overdrive on the acting (which I do with gusto).
The cover art was specially produced by Jon Cape, who made the recent U&F video and a number of other groovy 3-D art renders which you can also find here in the galleries at MBP.com

Music comes from The Dandy Warhols and Lene Lovich (you can swipe a free download of Lene's MP3 'Birdsong' below), and also Ambient Light, who made the weird and wonderful music used on the recording of From Beyond.
This is the last Sometimes before the re-commencement of Underwood and Flinch, and perhaps the last one ever, because it takes so damn long to produce an episode. I always start out thinking that each one will be simple, basic and straightforward, but it always becomes more and more fiddly and complex as new ideas occur to me during production - and before I know it, a whole day has gone by, then another, then another. Seriously, it's an insanely complicated podcast to make, and the whole thing just slips by in sixty minutes without touching the sides. Mind you, even though Sometimes drives me (and my wife) mental, I enjoy every minute of making it ... though I'm not sure if she does ;-)
I hope you enjoy it - and if you do, please leave a few kind words at
iTunes, thankee kindly, guv'nor.
