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…

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!
