The Oddwonks got to chatting on Twitter last week and one thing lead to another when whaaaaaat? Alan hasn't seen Penelope? Looks like he's the Odd Man Out!

Sometimes, one of us can become the Odd Man Out in just a weekend! That’s what happened when Sarah made Alan watch The Good Dinosaur. Then we forced Liz to sit through a cartoon about dinosaurs and feelings and howling. Will the beautiful animation be enough to sway Liz? How much does Sarah actually know about dinosaurs? Will Sarah and Alan be able to sneak that dinosaur yield sign into the Common Room Radio studio?

Today is a very special occasion! We're dropping the Roll for Topic episode right here on the OMO feed. This is a show where Alan and his buddies Joe and Randy (not editor Randy, a different Randy) determine what subjects they'll talk about by rolling some dice and letting fate decide! While we're getting the Roll For Topic feed set up on iTunes, we thought we'd drop this episode here for you guys as a special bonus!

The OMO Gang can barely contain their glee when they get together to discuss the quirky comedy Parks and Rec. This show is such a favorite amongst the crew that it is quoted on a near daily basis and even gave us the OMO favorite game, "New Band Name I Call It!" Hear why Sarah IS Leslie Knope, why Liz is her Ann, and why Alan is certainly nothing like Tom, right? This touching tribute to the beloved show will have you waving a lighter and singing "You're 5,000 Candles in the Wind."

Today's show was recorded the day before David Bowie's death. It was the day after I (Liz) heard "Under Pressure" in its entirety for the first time, and I haven't stopped listening to it since. I mention in this episode that most of what I knew about David Bowie is from his performance in Labyrinth, but I am looking forward to hearing and being moved by more of his music in the days (and years) ahead.

Get out there. Create. Be weird. Be vibrant. Be vulnerable. Be human. Someone out there is waiting for your art to connect them to the world and to themselves and to tell them that they are not alone.

A list of Rock for your ears:

T-Bone Walker, Don't Throw Your Love on Me So Strong
Jimi Hendrix, Purple Haze
John Mayall's Bluesbreakers feat. Eric Clapton, Hideaway
The Beatles, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds
Queen, Another One Bites the Dust
Queen feat. David Bowie, Under Pressure
Rush, Bravado
Rush, Fly By Night
Rush, Tom Sawyer

This week on Odd Man Out, Alan takes in a screening of Disney's 1999 animated feature Tarzan. While Alan normally has a soft spot for cartoon classics, the ubiquity of a certain drummer from Genesis on the film's soundtrack may prove to be an insurmountable obstacle in his enjoyment. How will the Phil Collins-anchored adaptation fare? Tune in to find out!
