To call the discussion in this episode ‘lively’ would be an understatement. Stephanie, Sylvie, Andy and I (Randy), all have opinions on reboots, adaptations and other related topics, and we explore a wide range of films and movies. We also share some news about upcoming reboots that are in early development and on their way to theatres. So, listen in as we discuss all things old made new again.

Yes, we skipped Episodes 11 and 12, they’re forthcoming. Why? They’re currently on the backup drive, and we’re in the process of rebuilding the studio in a new room, so it’ll be a couple days before I can edit and release those.

Luke Alberton from an Axe To Grind and his friend Chris recorded an extra news episode after helping me clear everything out of the studio, which had to be abandoned when the foundation began to leak. We talk about that mini-flood, Google’s move to enforce safe image search, new news from the next Star Wars movie, and season 6 of Sons of Anarchy.

We round the episode out by reviewing the new Simcity. It’s an episode with a different tone and some lively conversation.

Sylvie, Stephanie and Andy return next week with our Time Travel episode.

angelmuppetWe catch up with Sylvie, Stephanie and Randy as they recover from the various ailments that kept us away from our microphones for so long. We start by talking about what we plugged in to while we were immobilised, and move on to some big news in Geekdom that we missed such as…

The Blu-Ray version of Season 1 and 2 of Star Trek The Next Generation, Sherlock BBC season 2 on Blu-Ray and Netflix, The Young Indiana Jones and why you should get your set NOW if you want one.
We go into the big shifts in the Science Fiction world recently, like Disney purchasing Lucasfilm (Star Wars, Indiana Jones). We take positive and negative sides of the issue and discuss good and bad points of one of the biggest franchises of all time being bought by the largest children entertainment company in history.
Other side-topics include: Geriatric Indiana Jones, errors in Star Wars past (including the ‘Han Shot First’ issue), ET, National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), Aye, Dark Overlord, and much more…

Oh, and here’s that link to the mind-cleansing video we talked about at the end!

In this mini-episode, I talk about the hiatus we’ve taken, when we’re coming back and what we’ll be doing when we do. I also play some Bif Naked and almost get into a religious argument with myself about the Holidays.

Want to know what happened to us and the plan for the near future? Here it is!

Thank you for listening!

Stephanie, Sylvie and Randy talk about NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). We go into what it is, what it’s like to write 50,000 words in a month, what it takes, and, since all three of us are veterans of the event, we impart some helpful advice.

 For a basic tour of NaNoWriMo, the events, where to go to sign up, and a few interesting insights into a writer’s brain, this is a great episode.

So far, Sylvie is behind in her word count, and Randy is joining the “Oh Shit Brigade” off with a bang by joining NaNoWriMo on the 15th of November, half way in to the event. That’s a promise to writer 50,000 words in the second half of the month. We’ll get an update on his progress next episode!
