Did everyone have a great Comic Con week? We here at ALNM sure did, and we've got a bunch of fun stuff coming your way starting tonight! Including the completion of our rebranding project!
You may have noticed our updated website, featuring brand new custom artwork from Caroline Layne. Check out her website carolinelayne.com to learn more about her work. Can you find your favorite characters attending Comic Con? Thanks Caroline!
We also hope to have a lot original articles heading your way this year, in addition to our reformatted podcast style that will be coming your way next month. In the meantime we'll be having a bunch of Comic Con themed articles being posted and a pre-recorded podcast episode to finish out the month of July.
What about you all? What are you looking forward to most about 2017? Is there anything you want to see appear on this site?
First of all, I would like to say that I am so excited to be back on the website posting for you all! I know it's been awhile and my wonderful co-host and friend Christina has done an amazing job keeping everything running smoothly while I've been gone. In case you're wondering, I underwent two organ transplants (heart and liver) on September 25, 2016 and I'm just now starting to feel like myself again. It's been such a crazy experience and I've made so many friends for life while living at the hospital. I have been waiting to make my return back to ALNM and I'm stoked to be able to bring you Music Monday today. Thank you all for your understanding, patience, prayers, happy thoughts, and everything while I've been gone. I feel like a whole new person and I can't wait to experience this new life.
The Band: The Maine
The Song: "Won't Come Down"
Where you heard it first: Getting new organs has not diminished my love of The Maine and when their new album Lovely, Little, Lonely was released last week, this was the song that stood out the most to me. I love it!
Why it’s been stuck in your head: I love that no matter how many albums this band comes out with, they always have a song on their albums that sound like their original sound from 2007 and for Lovely, Little, Lonely, that's this song. The pop-punk sound is just perfect for them and it's always easy to sing along in your car.
Why you recommend it to our listeners: I always like to recommend songs that are great for rolling down the windows and singing at the top of your lungs.
All the polls for the first round of the ship bracket are now open! Polls close at 9:00 PM PST on Sunday January 29th. Check out the rules below:
Hello everyone! You may have noticed things have been a little quiet around here. Sorry about that! Between some positive changes at work, that awful election, and day to day life I just haven't had the time to run this website too. But do not fear. I do have some half edited episodes sitting on my laptop just waiting to be finished and posted. I'll try to get some of our regular posts up and going again with a few fun holiday activities mixed in. Message us in the comments below if there's anything you want to see on the site!
Hey everyone! I know it's been a while since our last episode, but there are new episodes recorded and ready for editing! My beloved co-host Kelly is currently recovering from her surgery, and I just found myself having a hard time editing when I'm not able to call her up and have one of our rambling hour long conversations about anything and everything. But expect our special 90s flashback episode soon!
We are so excited to be getting ready for our first time in the San Diego Convention Center for Comic-Con 2016! Due to our excitement, you'll notice that we've taken a short hiatus from the website, but we promise that this will be worth it! Come find us at SDCC next weekend! We'll be decked out in ALNM gear and may have some great things to give away, too. And after Comic-Con, get ready for even more new episodes and SDCC-related posts coming at you!
I just noticed people are still commenting on the poll itself, including people pretending to be both my co-host and myself. So I'm saying this again and this is the last time:
Your ACTUAL ALNM Mod Christina
We're swapping the Fandom this Friday for Family. Kelly and I both wish you all a very Merry Christmas full of yuletide joy! -Christina
Hi everyone! Sorry we've been a little quiet lately, but we've been preparing for our trip to San Diego next week! We'll have more information for you all shortly!
