As you may or may not know, over on Geek Out Loud: The official podcast of this website, we have started a petition to get yours truly on the Forcecast. In that spirit, I thought it appropriate to continue those efforts here.
So without further adeiu and no more introduction, ladies and gentlemen, my open letter to the Forcecast:
Dear Forcecast guys,
I just wanted to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you. (again…I’ve done it a couple of times on my podcast which you can listen to at www.geekoutpodcast.com. Check it out, you may like it. My name is Big Honkin Steve. I have been a listener to the Forcecast for a while now and I really enjoy it. Now, I know I know you are saying, “You may dispense with the pleasantries.” Well, ok then.
I am writing this letter on behalf of the listeners of Geek Out Loud, nay the Geek Out Loud FAMILY, who have done so much for me, and now we have a new goal. We want to bring our positivity and fun lovingness to the Forcecast. The Forcecast is a great beacon of light in a dark galaxy. So many haters out there have besmirched Mr. Lucas and his creation since the release of the Special Editions. So many people have said nasty things about the prequel trilogy. And it took me discovering the internet to find out that there are people out there who actually don’t like Ewoks.
Well, you guys have never been deterred. Angry fans couldn’t do it, things you can’t ride at Star Wars Celebrations couldn’t do it, not even Admiral Motti could do it. Jimmy Mac continues to bring great interviews. Jason does an outstanding job driving the ship from week to week. Ant through it all the people are entertained, informed, and keep coming back for more.
Well, let me present something to you in a business-like manner. I would like to be the peanut butter to your chocolate. WAIT. That’s too forward. I would like to the be peanut to your nougat. Still too much to ask. I would like to be the belt clip to your lightsaber. No…that’s too much too.
How about this? How about I will be the Dexter to your needing something to eat or drink every now and again. Yeah…that’s it.
The point is this. The family that is The Geek Out Loud family and myself would love the chance to come on the show at some point with you guys.
Now, I didn’t start this, (Even though I am continuing it…Hey, it’s me.) but I figure “what the hey?” you guys are fun, I’m fun…it works.
I’m not asking for a permanent spot. That would be presumptuous. (As if all this other is not.) I would be honored for a seat at the roundtable as you guys talk Clone Wars one evening.
Thanks for your consideration. Just know the The Forcecast rules. I look forward to hearing from you.
May the Force be with you,
Big Honkin’ Steve
Ok…let’s see how this works out. Thanks GOL family, for all of your support.
