logoFor all of you folks that have been asking for more toy talk on the podcast, then this is the episode for you!   We talk a little bit of music, a little bit of catch up and then we dive deep in our plastic lives and talk toys.   I don’t think we talk about a single move in this episode.  See, we like to switch things up about every 111 episodes just to keep it all fresh!

In this episode we cover:

 

All that and much more in Episode 112!

AND as a bonus if you want to hear (and/or see) Daniel talk for another hour about comic books, TV shows and toys then check out his recent appearance on the “Drinking With Comics” podcast here!

logoI hope all of you US listeners are enjoying the long holiday weekend.  I know I am.  Here we are at our alliteration episode, number 111… is it still alliteration if it’s with numbers and not letters?

As we discuss in this episode we now live in a world with a 12th Doctor, and just yesterday we got word that Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is now the highest grossing film of 2014. So there’s lots of great things happening in the world of geek right now and we are just the two men to talk about it.

Jason was a little under the weather in this episode in case you don’t think he’s his usual peppy self.  But there was pop culture to be discussed so he sucked it up and sat down for another brand new hour geek talk.

 

In this episode we discuss:

All that and much more in episode 111.

logoIf you are someone that covers comic con in the media, just because SDCC ends after 5 days doesn’t mean it’s over.   I’m still slogging through getting coverage put up.   ALL my photos are live right here, but I still have some videos and interviews that are coming.  That also means this episode is going up about a week later than I wanted to post it. So to make it up to you this is a longer episode. A lot happened and there’s a lot of stuff to talk about from both of our experiences and all the new reveals, so this will be another 90 minute episode.

Comic Con was great (but HOT) again this year.  Thank you to everyone that came up to us at the con and said you dig the show.  We really appreciate that.  We hope you all had a grand time too and didn’t get stuck in too many long lines.  I know that can start to suck the life out of you!

We’re back now, so let’s get to it! Cuz “it’s a fun day.”

In this episode we cover:

Also I said I would post the video for Weird Al’s “Word Crimes”

All that a more in a all new episode!

logoJuly is a magic month for geeks like us.   There’s summer movies, new toys, and San Diego Comic Con.    So much goodness is happening for pop culture fans that we never need to go outside in the sun at all.   We will be heading out to the big show this week.   You can follow my exploits on ActionFigureInsider.com as well as the AFi Facebook page, the AFi Twitter account AND the AFi instagram account.   Jason will be lording over SDCC from the 2nd floor the EntertainmentEarth “castle” booth.

logoEveryone relax.  We’re OK.   While it may SOUND like we were taking heavy fire in the middle of a war zone, that’s just life in Los Angeles.   I can assure you that no hosts were harmed during this recording.   It is common in the greater LA area that teens and punk kids set off fire works in the middle of the street all day an all night starting around June 30th and lasting until July 10th.   Now you will also get to experience that while you listen to this episode.

But we are able to mostly ignore all that as once the calendar hits the 7th month of the year our hearts and minds turn to Comic Con preparation.   There is an avalanche of great geek stuff to be exited about and every week we are only able to burn through a handful topics because we love this stuff so much… and summer time and “the big show” really is an embarrassment of riches for us.

 

In this episode we discuss:

Daniel  met old school VFX wizard Tom St. Amand.

Monty Python last ever live shows this week.

Star Wars episode VIII and IX announced.

Daniel Saw “Chef” and loved it.  Highly recommend.
