logoWe’re back on a Monday!  Ha-cha!  Summer is almost upon us and Comic Con 2014 is just around the corner!   I feel the pressure of the con SCREAMING towards me!   I’ve got so much I still need to do before the con hit that I really shouldn’t even be here typing this now.

One quick disclaimer – In this episode I mention a letter that surfaced last week from Stanley Kubrick to a studio attempting to make a sequel to 2001: A Space Odyssey.  It’s a fun story, but it’s been proven that the letter is a lie and complete rubbish.   Personally I’m shocked and I’m starting to think I can’t believe everything I read on the internet.   I hope that day never comes for me.

logoSorry it’ been a bit long between episodes but Jason and I both had to fly out of the country this past week so we could attend the Kanye/Kim wedding.   Well, I was attending, Jason was heading up the catering.   But a good time was had by all, and no expense was spared for this third sham wedding for Kim Kardasian and her baby daddy!   Actually, the delay was technical difficulties that we should have worked out now and we’ll be back on track.

We recorded this episode over a week ago, but are just now able to deliver it.  There was a LOT of geek news to cover that week, that might seem like old news now, but I like to think our perspective on it will all be a fresh take…   I don’t know of that’s true at all, but I like to think that.

Enough of reading this, let’s get to the meat of the podcast!

At long last I have seen the new Captain America movie so that we can discuss it on the show.  If you haven’t seen it yet, I don’t want to be the one that spoils anything, so run out and see it really quick while it’s still in theaters and then come back and listen.
