Summary: “Build your planet, keep in line… also clones."Stellar Firma is a weekly Science Fiction, Comedy podcast following the misadventures of Stellar Firma Ltd.'s highest born but lowest achieving planetary designer Trexel Geistman and his bewildered clone assistant David 7. Join them each episode as they attempt to take listener submissions and craft them into the galaxy's most luxurious, most expensive and most questionably designed bespoke planets.However, with Trexel's corporate shark of a line manager Hartro Piltz breathing down their necks and I.M.O.G.E.N., the station's omnipresent and omniinvasive stationwide A.I. monitoring those necks to within 3 decimal places, they'll be lucky to make it a week before being slurried and recycled into raw human resources.New episodes every Friday!For more information, visit www.rustyquill.com

Glad You're Alive (TREXEL) When I first met you, you were a baby I looked at you and I thought maybe Maybe you're the one who’ll stay alive Perhaps you’ll be the one to survive I’ve been hurt before, I know it’s true But perhaps it will be different with you Look at you so weak and stupid And we both know that the truth is Without me you’d be dead already Remember the trial you were like “Trexel help me” Bravely I stood and defended your honour If it were just you and Hartro, you'd be a goner I’ve proved my worth ten times over A talent as rare as a forty-leaf clover It’s about time you admitted my value And say it out loud, “Trexel Thank you!” You should really thank me for my kindness and My protection Your part of a very small selection Of people with whom I’ve really tried I’d be sorry if you died, I'm glad you're alive (TREXEL + CHORUS) You are, still alive You are, still alive You are, still alive You are, still alive (DAVID) I first met you, I was a baby I looked at you and I thought maybe Maybe he’ll help me in this life Protect from dangers trouble and strife I immediately discovered this wasn’t the case You're the most dangerous member of the human race An encyclopaedia of drunken lies The worst example of ‘one of the guys’ Without you things would be so much better I remember the trial; it was like having a fetter You wandered round yelling things almost at random And the trail only happened because of your tantrum! You’ve proved your selfishness ten times over An ego as large as a giant supernova It’s about time you admitted your folies and say it out loud “David, I'm sorry!” (TREXEL) You should really thank me for my kindness and My protection (DAVID: You weren't even listening were you? TREXEL: Yeah!) You’re one of the few with whom I've had a connection (DAVID: Not even slightly) I’d be sorry if you died, I'm glad you're alive (TREXEL + CHORUS) You are, still alive You are, still alive You are, still alive You are, still alive DAVID (Background During Final Chorus): So, I’m just gonna, So, I’m just gonna, I'm just gonna go, I’m just gonna’ go ‘cause you're not even listening to me, you not, you never listen to me, you’re not listening now, you never will, I, I might as well leave, just, just, I’m going, right, bye, bye forever, maybe, tomorrow probably, but bye, right now, just, I’m off!

 Announcement: Seasons Greetings 2020 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:01:47

Hi everyone, Alex here, I just wanted to take a moment to wish you all a happy and safe holiday season and give thanks to all of you who helped us get to where we are this year.   Obviously 2020 has been wild ride for everyone and we have all had to adapt and adopt new ways of working and living. Yet despite all these extreme circumstances Rusty Quill has managed to stand tall and we wanted to say thank you to everyone who has made this possible. Here at Rusty Towers, we started the year hoping for convention appearances and maybe some international travel; instead, we pivoted to fully remote working to keep all your favourite shows ticking along safely and launched new online content like the Enthusigasm podcast and our Twitch live streams. Not only that, we have continued donating towards the Covid Relief Fund every month and with your additional help through Gaming and Giving we have raised more than £55,000 pounds to charity this year. That is astounding. We are incredibly grateful to have such a skilled and dedicated team working with us and persevering through this year. But we never would have been able to make it anywhere near this far without the direct support of you, the listeners.  You’ve trusted us through thick and thin and thanks to you, we’ve managed to not only weather this year but even keep growing and start spinning up a load of new and exciting projects that you can look forward to in 2021. Your support has sustained the livelihoods of everyone here at Rusty Towers despite so much hardship and I know I speak for everyone here when I say that we will never forget your generosity and will continue to work to uphold the faith you show in us. As always, we have special holiday content running throughout the festive period to help put a spring in your step and even have a complete music album for Stellar Firma fans being released to public from the 25th of December through to the New Year’s Eve. We hope you and all your loved ones are happy and healthy this holiday.

 Announcement: Rusty Quill Gaming and Giving 2020 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 00:01:04

Hey everyone! Mike here, Rusty Quill’s video guy and I’m pleased to announce that Rusty Quill’s Gaming and Giving will be back this year and we’re going digital! Come join in as we go live at 11am GMT on the 12th December on Twitch.tv with 24 hours of videogames, board games and general fun and frolics. Yes, that’s right, I said 24 hours. We’ve made a few changes to the show this year, one of which is that we’ll be raising money for three charities: Mind, Action Aid and the Black, African and Asian Therapy Network and anything we raise this year will be split evenly across all three of them. Last year, we managed to raise just over £10,000 in 12 hours and I’m confident that, with your support, we’ll raise even more this year! Plus, let’s just say there may be some... creative incentives for our viewers who donate. So tune in to www.twitch.tv/rusty_quill on Saturday 12th December at 11am GMT to help us kick off Gaming and Giving 2020 and let’s send this year off with a bang! This year, Rusty Quill Gaming and Giving 2020 will be raising money to support: Mind - https://www.mind.org.uk/ Action Aid - https://actionaid.org/ BAATN (Black, African and Asian Therapy Network) - https://www.baatn.org.uk/ Music Nouvelle Noel Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/ Join our community: WEBSITE: rustyquill.com FACEBOOK: facebook.com/therustyquill TWITTER: @therustyquill REDDIT: reddit.com/r/RustyQuill DISCORD: https://discord.gg/KckTv8y EMAIL: mail@rustyquill.com  See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
