  • Bad Storytellers :: Episode 23 :: The Great Gig in the Sky

    bad storytellersBad Storytellers is a podcast about writing and things that are written. Join four friends on the road to becoming professional writers as they unleash new stories on-air, criticize each others’ work, discuss pop culture influences, and conceive on-the-spot trailers for imaginary films.

    In this episode, the gang discusses the funniest films ever made, other podcasts, and what to burn when we die. Josh brings in one of his banked short film drafts, Maxx writes an introduction for an efficient criminal, and Liam writes about a girl and a burned-down house. Afterwards, we discuss diction and clarity, and our trailer ends up being a movie that will never be made, but that everyone secretly wants.

  • Torchwood #1 Review & SDCC Panel Recap

    The Breakdowntorchwood-1-sdcc

    The adventures of Captain Jack Harkness and the Torchwood Institute continue in an ongoing comic from Titan Comics. This continuation of the Doctor Who spinoff is written by Carole Barrowman, with story heavily influenced byCaptain Jack himself, John Barrowman. Art by Antonio Fuso (G.I. Joe: Cobra, Drive) and Pasquale Qualano (Batman ’66, She-Hulk).

    Elevator Pitch

    Doctor Who for a more adult audience, a team of misfits defending the earth from extraterrestrial threats, ninjas on flying jetskis, and giant sea monsters. With influence from Barrowman himself, expect an authentic continuation of the Torchwood story.

    The Verdict

    Torchwood #1 is mostly setup for later issues, but returns with the same jokes and personalities fans grew to love. References to previous stories (like a quick fly-by from Myfanwy) demonstrate a dedication to canon and continued character development.

  • Creators Unite at the Nickelodeon Happy Happy! Joy Joy! SDCC Panel

    25_years_nickelodeonIt’s rare to find a kid who grew up in the 90s and wasn’t profoundly influenced by Nickelodeon programming. Such was the theme of the San Diego Comic Con panel “Happy Happy! Joy Joy!: 25 Years of Nickelodeon Original Animation.”

    Panelists included original animation creators Craig Bartlett (Hey Arnold!), Butch Hartman (The Fairly OddParents, Bunsen is a Beast!), Jhonen Vasquez (Invader Zim) and Arlene Klasky (Rugrats). This panel was a part of the company’s promotion of The Splat, a block of programming dedicated to Nickelodeon’s iconic series from the 90s and early 00s, but also had some inside looks at the upcoming Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie, Hartman’s new show Bunsen is a Beast!, and the debut of Vasquez’s own original TMNT short.

    Now that the series is a part of Cartoon Network’s late night, mature audience programming, and after a 50-year time jump for the character, we’re going to see some changes and Jack will notice them too. We spoke with Genndy Tartakovsky at San Diego Comic Con, and he elaborated on the grittier season and how it will effect the character. (more…)

  • Switching Weapons – Loading the Next Checkpoint

    Switching Weapons

    Well, it’s been quite a while, hasn’t it?  I suppose I could start with an apology for my absence, explain about how hectic the last four years of my life overseas in the military was, lament over the harrowing experience the return to the US was, and pledge to make a return to form worthy of the following.  I’d considered the right amount of wit, exposition, articulation and alliteration, but decided the seven people that actually read my column would probably forgive me.  All kidding aside, it’s good to be back.

  • Nerdy Show Book Club :: Episode 13 :: Into the Pop Culture Garbage Hole

    bookclub13From the pages of Nerdy Show – it’s Nerdy Show Book Club! In these literary episodes, we share the books we’re currently reading, do dramatic readings from the best and worst nerd literature, talk with notable geek authors, and discuss a book we’ve read along with the community.

    When you consume a ton of media, it’s inevitable that you’ll come face-to-face with some tentacle-waving garbage monster of obscure pop culture. The question is: is it bad bad or good bad? Will you find surprising brilliance to unnecessary direct-to-video sequels of classic films? Can a blatant sampling of the best-known sci-fi media of the past 30 years provide a fresh perspective? Real monkey/ typewriter/ Shakespeare kinda stuff.

    Join Cap, Colin, Denika, and Brandon as they plummet into the recesses of the pop culture garbage hole: an inevitably frequent stopover for any nerd with a media addiction. Our Read-Along Book for this episode is Ready Player One author, Ernest Cline‘s Armada. Can this modern day retelling of The Last Starfighter (and many other nerd staples) stand aside his dazzling debut? We also dabble in dystopian fiction, discuss the metaphysics of simulation theory as told by a thought-form entity, and read from a young reader adaptation of Mortal Kombat: the movie. (more…)
