Hi, I'm Scott. Thanks for visiting Pure Idiom and I'll now answer any questions you have...

What is Pure Idiom?

The enigmatic answer to that question is best expressed in this sweet hit of audio brain candy. The one-sentence answer: "The Pure Idiom podcast is the iconoclastic inter-dimensional misadventures of two guys, a smart-aleck talking cat, and their celebrity guests."

Who are the "two guys, a smart-aleck talking cat, and their celebrity guests" featured in Pure Idiom?

The two guys are Nathan and Scott:

NATHAN (voiced by Nathan Scott) is the worldly, level-headed member of the Pure Idiom duo. A 21st Century Renaissance Man, Nathan is a professional musician, writer, world traveler and inventor living the life of leisure in a beautiful house on Affluent Island. Nathan's latest invention is the Impossibility Engine, a device that allows inter-dimensional travel.

SCOTT (voiced by Scott McCollum) is the quintessential sitcom wacky friend; Fast-talking, loud, brash, but still strangely likable--The Kramer to Nathan's Jerry. Scott often treks from his modest apartment on the mainland to Nathan's home on Affluent Island to hang out, eat Nathan's food and ride in the Impossibility Engine.

THE CAT (voiced by Laurence Simon), also known as Tinkerbell, is Nathan's white fluffy house-cat. The Cat recently became "a smart-aleck talking cat" thanks to a test ride in the Impossibility Engine. The Cat is quick with a snarky comment, sees himself as Scott's foil, and his proud of his attitude problem.

THE CELEBRITIES that figure into the Pure Idiom podcasts are from a variety of entertainment media: Actors, authors, rock stars, and comedians. Bruce Campbell, star of cult movie favorites such as Army of Darkness and the author of the new audiobook Make Love The Bruce Campbell Way, was the first celebrity guest featured on Pure Idiom.

How can I win an autographed copy of "Make Love The Bruce Campbell Way" on CD audiobook?

Pure Idiom will be giving away five (5) free copies of Make Love The Bruce Campbell Way on CD just for listening to the Pure Idiom podcast! Just email us at pureidiom@spamarrest.com and explain to us, in 300 words or less, just why you think you deserve to win an autographed audiobook of Bruce Campbell's latest magnum opus. The five winning entries will be posted online, and each will receive their prize via snail mail, as well as the notoriety of being the winners in Pure Idiom's first contest.

Visit this website every day this week (October 10-17, 2005) for updates and details.

Okay, that's all I can stand for Q&A for today. Come back tomorrow for more punishment and maybe some more Pure Idiom podcast goodness (if you're lucky).

Yes, very good indeed.
Would the impossibility engine be related in any way to an improbability drive?
I know the latter usually involves a source of Brownian motion (I.E. a good cup of hot tea) and an atomic vector plotter, but I'm not sure how to modify the rig for impossibility. Perhaps the built in random numbers have something to do with it.

The Impossibility Engine might be a distant cousin, involving a sort of Liquid Crystal drive (I.E. a good shaker of martini) plus an electromagnetic channelized equalizer. And the built-in random numbers have everything to do with it . . .

Sounds like navigation could get a bit tricky. Personally, I haven't had much luck with controlling my subconscious. No matter what I try, I always end up with crazy impulses to do things like murder anime artists and speak in accents I don't have.

Posted by: Jones the Cabbage at October 11, 2005 09:23 AM

Both entirely understandable, to be sure, though I think the accents may be a residual effect from a diet of Monty Python reruns while still at an impressionable age . . . this, too, shall pass.
