Let us know what you think about the new website design and drop a comment about anything on the podcast.

We spent a bit of time over the past couple of days “reDysigning” the blog.  A fresh look, a couple of fresh new features (polls and a Twitter feed to name a few) gives the site a bit more of a vibrant feel.  Or so we think.

We’d like your opinion on the site – both the look and content – because we want to put together a blog and podcast that you want to see and hear.

A recent guest editorial by MCM has got us thinking that we’d like more “op/ed” pieces for the blog, so if you’ve got something you’d like to share, contact us.  We’d love to hear from you.

Episode 41 of our weekly podcast will be up later on, so be sure to give it (and our back catalog of 40 podcasts!) a listen.  Subscribe via iTunes or listen to it right here.

Thanks for reading – and listening.  Our aim, as always, is to have more people “dyscover” DyscultureD.  We’re glad you already have.

Zeus (Arts & Crafts) from their upcoming EP Sounds Like Zeus – How Does it Feel?

Looks like James Spader just moved up on Shatner's late-night "crank call" list.

I remember when I first saw Star Trek II:  The Wrath Of Khan, and I also remember a particular scene that has stuck with me throughout the years.

No…it’s not the “Kirk yell.”

It was the scene where Chekov and Captain Clark Terrell were ambushed by Khan and his loyal followers.  Khan implants the two unfortunates with eels that enter their ears, enabling him to control their minds.

Still freaks me out.
