Next week, two of my worlds collide when The Thrilling Adventure Hour podcast crosses over with MPR’s WITS radio show.

WITS is a delightful program hosted by the most splendid John Moe, and upon which I have guested many many many times. You can catch it on the honest-to-God radio, or you can catch up with it via podcast here.

Beyond Belief is a segment of the live, staged fake-radio show The Thrilling Adventure Hour. Each segment of TAH is podcast individually. The Beyond Belief segment— starring myself and Paget Brewster as Frank and Sadie Doyle— concerns a pair of boozy paranormal investigators who are married to each other and to booze. It’s The Thin Man with ghosts. And more booze.

Booze.

Frank & Sadie Doyle, along with musical guests Rhett Miller and "Weird Al" Yankovic, will be visiting WITS on Friday, October 24th.

If you want to catch up on the adventures of Frank & Sadie Doyle. here are all of their adventures for your listening pleasure. They’re all about 20 minutes or so, with the occasional super-sized special episode along the way. I personally recommend all of them.

Reading on the Seven Deadly Sins

Reblog & add as you find others :)
Some links & such for musing about costuming to Inferno.

The seven deadly sins as illustrated by Erte (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ert%C3%A9): http://www.wikiart.org/en/erte/by-series/the-zodiac (misfiled by wikiart under “Zodiac”).

You can see a sketch of the Erte-inspired Lust costume I’m making here: http://evenghostandhorse.tumblr.com/post/98922914558/leotard-nude-gloves-black-stockings-nude-with

I also think Pride and Wrath are particularly good inspirations.

Suggestion: rather than dressing directly as a sin, select a character from history or literature that you associate with said sin, and dress as them with a twist that makes your association clear.
