Dear Readers,
I've just finished putting together the preview for Killer Brother, recorded earlier today! Enjoy the beautiful sounds of this, and get ready for this Friday, when Killer Brother: Target Genesis will be released to the public for the first time! You can watch the preview on my Schedelworld youtube channel!!! Enjoy!



Dear BLOBites,
Today was a day of much voice work!! Thanks to the ever-reliable Jonny Brick, producer extraordinaire, I today recorded a reading of Killer Brother: Target Genesis, along with TWO different versions of a trailer for it (available soon online) and an interview!

After that, I made the first version of the trailer for the upcoming Hero BLOB XI: BLOB Family Reunion! And an interview with BLOB and me, Schedel, all about HBXI. It was a wonderful, exhausting, voice-filled day!

So here's the low-down on your soon-to-be favorite radio-plays:

THIS FRIDAY, Killer Brother: Target Genesis will be released, and can be accessed in the evening (GMT) or the early afternoon (Central Standard Time). That's THIS FRIDAY, July 29th! It will be accessible on blastocyst, and there will be an update with a link here on the HeroBlog! Also, check out the (tiny) Killer Brother website!

NEXT WEDNESDAY, I'll be recording Hero BLOB XI, along with my talented voice cast, including Martha McGill, Brett Heasman, and a Special Secret Guest! It will go online some time after, and you can be sure that I'll have a link for it here.

It's an exciting time to like my work, and an exciting time to love BLOB! So listen, enjoy, and have fun!!!!

Killer Brother and Hero BLOB XI Performances!!

Dear Students of the oft-lauded School of BLOB,
I am happy to announce a couple of upcoming projects that will be soon available on the web for your perusal and ENJOYMENT!!

Firstly, this Wednesday, I am going to record a reading of the newly re-edited and improved 'Killer Brother: Target Genesis' in six parts. This will be your first chance to experience this previously-unreleased work, one of my favorite ideas I've ever written!

Thrill along with Brother Matthew Beati, former hitman and current monk, as he travels back near to the beginning of time, to stop the Fall from ever occurring!! It will be a dramatic reading in 6 parts, available soon on !!!

Next, there will be the first-ever performance of Hero BLOB XI: BLOB Family Reunion, in its radio-play format! It will be recorded on August 3 (in the midst of the ever-famous Edinburgh Festival), with a cast that so far includes me and the talents of Brett Heasman (Vampire Blob in Vampire Blob: Silent Fangs of Horror (2008)) and Martha McGill (whose unforgettable performance as Tuna Head lit up the stage in 2008's Hero BLOB IX: Wrath of the Tuna Queen)!!! Hero BLOB XI is sure to be a corker, and is my favorite of the BLOB series that I've written (mind you, the first six were never actually written and were simply improvised in the badly-missed methods employed by Nicolas Nadeau and me back in the heyday).

In Hero BLOB XI: BLOB Family Reunion, BLOB travels to the city of Blobton in Kentucky, encountering friends and foes alike as he discovers the secrets of his past and forges his way into a love for the future. Featuring Chilipepperman, too!!

So that's the big news for the day, and it's all thanks to the patronly kindness of Jonny Brick, proprietor of the blastocyst website (check it out on!!! The website has previously hosted a large amount of my BLOB-world-related poetry (available in the poesy section of his website), the Hero BLOB Christmas Special: BLOB's Magical Christmas, and an interview with me on various subjects! CHECK IT OUT NOWWWW!!!!

I'll update you on when you can expect to hear these beautiful stories performed online, my friends. Until then,
ever yours,

Announcement: BLOBNIBUS!!!

Dear Fans,
No real reason to keep it secret, so the BLOB's out of the bag! My new project I'm writing is called BLOBNIBUS. It's for (internet) radio, and it's an omnibus collecting new radio versions of BLOB's first three adventures!

Yesterday, I finished typing up the radio version of BLOB the Movie, now re-named 'the Combustible Crime Wave', and today I've been working on 'the Dastardly Deeds of Doctor Von Blimpo'!!

The radio versions do differ slightly from the originals, hopefully keeping things fun and fresh, while introducing new fans to the BLOB mythos for the first time!

My plan is to have a BLOBniverse-spanning series of radio plays, putting the entire BLOB 12-part saga on the air in a format that's easy on the ears and fun for all!

So BLOBNIBUS collects the events of BLOB the Movie, BLOB 2, and BLOB 3: Dance of the Spider Freak. Next will be BLOBNIBUS PART TWO, collecting the events of the previously unreleased BLOB 4, along with BLOB V: the Vampire Imperative. Then will come a radio-dramatized version of BLOB 6, the unreleased BLOB 7 and 8, a radio version of WRATH OF THE TUNA QUEEN, the unreleased BLOB X: Actaeon, the newly-completed radio BLOB 11: BLOB FAMILY REUNION, and finally the unreleased and ever-anticipated BLOB 12: SINNERS IN THE HANDS OF AN ANGRY BLOB.

Is this excessively ambitious for a person who has a dissertation due in about a month? Yes, probably! But after the dissertation, while I'm desperately searching for a job to finance my existence, I'll have plenty of time to convert, re-write, or pen all of these adventures for your listening pleasure!

Watch this space for more updates and downdates on all your favorite things!


PS to whet your appetite, here's the special edition of the original BLOB the Movie, uploaded on the HeroBLOB Official youtube page by one of BLOB's greatest fans, Thomas!

Dear Friends,
I today completed editing BLOB 11 for performance as an internet radio show! I really do like this one, as, like most of the BLOB adventures, it's a real departure from run-of-the-mill BLOB adventures! BLOB sort of seeks to sort of rejoin his sort of family and sort of gets a new girlfriend (BLOBETTE), with some sort of help from CHILIPEPPERMAN!!! This is the first official completed work of BLOBness to feature CHILIPEPPERMAN, an old villain-turned-hero from CLOUDMAN comics, although he will appear in continuity before this, in BLOB 7D: Rise of the Jive Turkeys!

This is all part of my ongoing new evil plot for the BLOB universe, driven by the new secret project that I am not going to tell you about yet!!

Meanwhile, I take the notebook for 'The Innocence' around with me everywhere, though I haven't written anything new in it for days (except the chapter plan for my dissertation about Gianfrancesco Pico della Mirandola's STRIX). OH WELL. WILL DO SOON.

So hopefully, you'll get to hear the radio version of HBXI:BFR pretty soon, and it will hopefully feature my usual fantastic array of voice talents, if they haven't all decided to abandon me since it's been months since a new radio play has been performed!

Today, I rolled down a hill. A big hill, under the Edinburgh Castle. I just really felt like it.


Also, I adapted half of Hero BLOB XI: BLOB Family Reunion into a radio-play format. That's some work done, at least.

Meet The Masked Hermit

Hey y'all!
Today I'd like to talk about the Masked Hermit. It was the second play I wrote, back in high school, and I'm returning to it now! I've penned an outline for a complete restructuring of the play, and I'm hoping to get it put together soon for broadcast as an internet radio-play! We'll see how quickly I'll finish this, but I'm really excited about it!
The plot follows an alien with a hermit crab for a head as he makes his way through a Scientific Research Cruise Ship, while being pursued by the evil Starzor the Conqueror! Meanwhile, his main squeeze Mari tries to convince her uncle not to be so judgmental about her boyfriend's fishy face.
Hope to present it to you soon!


PS I have a video-shoot on Monday for an online advert! I'll link to it when it goes online, but right now I'm still preparing for it. I'll be doing voice work and physical work in front of green-screen, which I've wanted to try for a long time!
