The Complete “John and Mary Show You Their Shorts”
Posted on January 26, 2009 Posted by John Scalzi 10 Comments
John Nichols, who recorded my and Mary Robinette Kowal’s reading at Borderlands Books on January 16th, has thoughtfully chopped up the audio files of the performance into the individual stories and events, thus keeping me from having to do so myself, for which he wins my eternal gratitude. So for those of you who are interested, here are the links to the whole event. Each link will take you to Mr. Nichol’s site, where the audio will stream for you, with the exception of “The PetMaster 2000,” which I posted here earlier as a downloadable file.
“Denise Jones, Super Booker” (Read by both of us)
“Nails in my Feet” (Mary)
“Missives From Possible Futures #1: Alternate History Search Results” (Me)
“Trip, Trap, Tripping” (Mary)
“The State of Super Villainy” (Read by both of us)
“Evil Robot Monkey” (Mary)
“The PetMaster 2000” (Science Fiction comedy improv from the both of us)
Before & After
Pre-show chatter (~20 minutes)
Post-show Q&A (~25 minutes)
Encore chatter/Kodi doesn’t miss me
Thanks once again to John Nichols for recording and posting these. It was a heck of a lot of fun, and I’m glad those of you who weren’t there get a chance to listen to it.
Also, if you click on the picture above, it will take you to an entire photo set of the evening, taken by Flickr user Bluesilver. Also much fun.
Cool! I was a bit late, so it’s great to be able to hear what I missed. Thanks, John Nichols!
MRK looks so gorgeous with her tiara and the curls.
I’d say you look gorgeous too, but shall we just settle for “good-looking”?
That looks like it was a lot of fun! I’m sorry I missed it.
Side note: I must admit the photo of the hairless cat’s backside is mildly disturbing (in a too much anatomical information kind of way).
Good grief. John… You’ve grown curly hair! And Mary’s going bald! What’s happened?
Oh. Right. You swapped name plates. Never mind.
That was so awesome.
Thank you John N.!
I heard my voice! I’m famous! ok just to myself but still.
Spent the last couple of hours pegging the giggle-meter again. My wife and youngest daughter giving me funny looks while I try to stay upright in my computer chair.
Dang, that was fun to listen to. I wish I could have been there in person. Thanks John Nichols for allowing the rest of us to take part in a hilarious eventing.
John, “Super Booker” was fantastic. You and Mary work together really well. 8D
Eventing being a cross between event and evening of course…
Any chance of making these downloadable?
