Gallery of Munt

December 8, 2011

One of the problems which arose in interviewing our Special Guests for AMT200 is that those people were witness to our most hideous, embarrassing, shameful years. Worse, they have visual evidence.

Enter, if you dare, the Gallery of Munt!

Let’s take a quick break from all these words to admire a couple of pictures sent in by two listeners.

'Team AMT' by James

'Answer Me This!' by Stephen

Lovely work, gentlemen; worthy additions to the AMT Gallery, the rest of which you can see HERE. And, if the fancy takes you, send in your own AMT artworks to be hung on our virtual walls!

Happy birthday to us!

July 15, 2009

** Click here for EPISODE 99 **

On the eve of our 100th episode, we’ve received a marvellous missive from Simon:

I’m breaking tradition, I’m emailing not with a question, BUT WITH A PRESENT…of sorts.

I found myself doodling as I usually do whilst listening to episode 98, and it sort of developed into the drawing that’s attached! It’s to celebrate your 100th episode, and a thanks for being so damned awesome over the last two years.

Thanks very much, Simon! (Especially for making us look so much better than we do in real life.) And if any of the rest of you fancy making cards for us to prop on our virtual mantelpieces, send them along too! Nobody likes tears on their birthday…

Incidentally, as a birthday treat, we were asked to compile our Celebrity Playlist for iTunes. If you can pause in choking with laughter at the mere notion of us having managed to muscle in on something with ‘celebrity’ in the name, then click HERE check out our joint megamix.

Great news for all you Martin the Sound Fans – you can now cut out and keep your very own Martin! Sally Grosart, who created these marvellous paper effigies of me and Olly, has also done one of Martin, right down to his home-made Sound of the Ladies t-shirt. It’s an impressive likeness:

Supercool

April 14, 2009

** Click here for EPISODE 90 **

We’ve enjoyed some splendid cartoonage from Luke from Cambridge before, and this week he has turned his talents to matters Educational and Scientific:

In response to Laurence from York’s question regarding things being “ice cold”, I must take a slightly tangential and pedantic point that it is possible to water to be liquid at temperatures far below zero due to a phenomenon called “supercooling” (www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supercooling).
To illustrate this I have composed the following cartoon.

Animate Me This!

January 14, 2009

** Click here for EPISODE 81 **

Like proud parents sticking their toddlers’ daubings on the fridge door, we are altogether delighted when you send us your artistic endeavours inspired by Answer Me This!. We very much enjoyed this, that and the other, and now Luke from Cambridge has similarly perked up our days, having just made a snippet of the podcast into a cartoon! Visit his website lukesurl.com for the full-size version.

Meanwhile, if you enjoy a punctuation challenge, try this one that my English teacher Mr Bullard laid upon us when I was nine:

Smith where Jones had had had had had had had had had had had the examiner’s approval.

That’s eleven ‘had’s in a row! Punctuate them so that the sentence makes sense, goddammit, else Mr Bullard will throw a hardback dictionary at you from beyond the grave.

pretty as a picture – because it is a picture

September 8, 2008
* Craving some AMT!P magic? Click here to listen to some vintage episodes *

** Have you entered our CAMCORDER CHALLENGE yet?
If you have no idea what this is, click here to be availed! **

What does it take to melt our hearts, listeners? Flowers? Puppies? Sulphuric acid?

Well, each of those things in their own way – but also some good old arting! Not for the first time, we’ve been reduced to little pools of joy by a listener sending us a pictorial adaptation of the podcast. Today’s delight-bringer is Amelia from London, who sent us the following:

I was just listening to some old episodes and was inspired to create this…well either that or I was just really bored.

Thank you, Amelia! Especially for giving us all such nice hair.

Helen and Olly looking unusually animated for a Monday morning…

June 30, 2008

** Click here for EPISODE 60 **

Oh listeners, we do love it when you send us things. Questions, that’s a given. Pictures, a rare but great delight. And now animator Weles Bussett has gone and turned the pretitles from Episode 45 into a piece of animation for the dialogue* section of his portfolio! Loooooook!!!

I only wish we were that charming, moving and toned in real life.

Anyway if any of the rest of you fancies sending us your creative projects, we really look forward to seeing what you come up with: a Punch & Judy-style puppet show, with Helen and Olly beating each other with tiny truncheons? A feature-length Pixar version of Answer Me This? A Jan Svankmajer-esque version in which Helen and Olly are played by sausages? Weles has set the bar pretty high, but that certainly would arrest our attention…

*if the speech looks a bit out of sync, it’s not Weles’s fault – Youtube likes to jigger about with that sort of thing, just in case you forget who’s boss.

the Answer Me This! studios

April 30, 2008

** Answer Me This! returns on May 15th; meanwhile click HERE to listen to the back catalogue **

You listeners are endlessly wonderful. Not only do you send us all those questions we live to answer, but now pictures as well! Going straight onto the Answer Me This! fridge is this drawing by Alison from San Jose (click for a bigger image):
the AMT studio, by Alison from San Jose
Alison writes:

As I listen to your podcast my mind makes up images of what the place you record in looks like. I decided to sketch out what I picture in my head. I have no idea if I’m right, though…what if your “recording studio” is really an old rec room or someone’s bedroom? What if you’re all just sitting around on a bed leaning over to share a computer microphone? I much prefer to picture you in a professional-type studio with fancy microphones, a laptop for quick research, and Martin in his own fancy sound booth. So Helen and Ollie, answer me this, what does your recording studio look like?

Alison, we hate to disappoint you, so let’s just say that our recording studio is even fancier than Mr Kipling’s French Fancies. It looks almost exactly like this, although you can’t quite see the 18-carat gold ceiling in this picture:

Oh, ok – our studio isn’t quite as snazzy as that one, but let’s keep Alison’s dream alive a little longer… Meanwhile, before we reveal the prosaic reality of Where The Magic Happens, if any of the rest of you feel like sending us a picture of what you think the studio looks like, we’d be quite delighted. Please email it to answermethispodcast@googlemail.com, and we’ll post it up here, just like Tony Hart might have done if he hadn’t retired.
