We like to talk about things.
Basil: An eternal English/Graphic Design major that spends way too much time playing video games and watching Japanese cartoons and not nearly enough time writing or graphic designing about them. He runs an anime club with an iron fist, once wrote for Animefringe (for all of two-three months!), and thinks ‘Moe Moe Bullshit’ is stupid.
He really does. Like one time some jerkwad got up all up in his face and was all “DESU DESU DESU” and Basil punched him in the face and laid him out on the floor. Stupid Moe, we never liked him either.
Douglass: The resident International Man of Mystery. Some say he has journeyed so far down the Grand Line she has come to our world: searching for truth, justice, and pirate booty. Some others say she’s an alien and he will one day rule us all. Or perhaps Nobody is an ESPer, or maybe even a time traveler. Douglass could be Everybody, or even Sombody. But probably not. And yet… No one knows where he/she/Magnum, P.I. may strike next.
DJ Inubito: Our resident maker of the beats as well as our prestigious producer. Apparently it’s a rare thing for a fan-made podcast to have a guy that’s all about sound, but we’re glad to have him (Basil especially!). Occasionally we make him talk about things too! The man has played at anime con dances all across the good ol’ USA and also makes the beats for the “The Nerdy South Apostle”rap group CSHC. Nerdcore rap hasn’t been the same since. And hopefully, so will podcasting!
Kevin: Raised by wild opera hippies and a trio of lesbian cats, Kevin is our local mecha expert. When it comes to matters of giant robots we’ve yet to meet anyone who knows more obscure or neat information about them. Whenever we come across a giant robot show, be on the lookout! You might just learn something.
He’s also claimed the title of Ultimate OSMcast! Roadie (UOR), and therefore as of late can be seen heard chirping in on the various con reports we’ve done.
Brad aka Rail: Once known to us as only the Resident Kinda Asian Guy, then he said “eff y’all” then went and got a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science and the moved to Chicago to get a Master’s Degree in urban planning. So he’s now officially smarter than the rest of us! That bastard.
He’s been an avid anime fan since the 90′s and is the only one we know to have actually played all the .hack games to completion. That means he’s spent as much time in a virtual MMO than some of us have in actual MMOs… I’m just throwing that out there. Regardless he’s the closest thing we have to an actual academic around here so we throw him in from time to time to make ourselves feel smarter. Though since he keeps threatening to move away from us again, so we have to use him while we can.
Lee: In a hazardous wake of an almost endless series of Lovecraftian proxy wars, Lee emerged a man reborn. Although since then something always felt… off. Not quite right. It was like all the panels of a comic was finshed, yet there was till have one area of blank space left that begged to have one more panel in his life. And then one day after spending five hours perfecting (of all things) the latest panel of his webcomic, it dawned on him… He needed to be in a podcast! Thankfully, we got to him before anyone else could. Take that, suckers!
Sooz hates a lot of things, including probably whatever you like. Her presence is enough to cause small animals to combust from pure evil. She enjoys nothing more than ruining fun and drinking the sweet, sweet tears of orphaned babies, except for ice cream and ballet. She also does a webcomic, found at reliquary.comicgenesis.com.
This podcast is dedicated to Eric White.
Eric was one of the founding members of the OSMcast, we mean literally one as he was talking to Basil when said Basil came up with the idea. Sadly, in December of 2011, he passed away. He was one of the greatest, funniest, most wonderful people ever assembled into a person. We missed him dearly. This podcast is dedicated to his memory. Here’s the blurb he wrote about himself:
Eric: The product of a bizarre breeding experiment between a Southern Baptist Philosopher and a Buddhist Lawyer the being known only as Eric has wandered the mortal plane for time untold. In his human guise as a History Major at the University of Alabama-Huntsville he spends most of his time reading books, playing video games and just generally nerding the hell out.
