Collecting Comics

How did I start collecting comics?  Here’s some of my earliest memories of comic books and pictured within this post is a scan of the ONE BOOK that quite literally shaped a large period of my life and kicked off a hobby I still enjoy today. For those who don’t know, I grew up in a restaurant...

Episode #11 – Irish Eyes All A Twitter

This week we’re going green.  Not so much in the environmental way but more in the Irish way.  From one of our primary segments looking at the culture of holidays to our drinks this week, we’re looking at the heritage and mistaken beverages of this classicly Americanized holiday (and others)....

Top 5 Missing Television Series

I’ve been thoroughly enjoying John Wilson’s Big Damned Heroes article series on the long gone television show Firefly (via the Pandoracon site). It’s taken me back and gotten me rewatching the series when time allows. Along those same lines, an article coming out of SXSW shared a few...

Tattooed Love

Charlie here and I’m writing today to say, “I love tattoo art”. There, I said it. When I see it on others it not only intrigues me but I find it sexy and often comment on designs I really like. Quality art and the commitment to place it on your body for life (or at least until you face a fairly painful...

1,000 Essential Comics with Charlie … Round 1

Some time back I told you about a book that’s been sitting on my library shelf just wasting away. I would occasionally spot the spine and it was just begging to be read. It is Tony Isabella’s much celebrated 1,000 Comic Books You Must Read and, with the permission of the author, I’m kicking off a quest to...

Episode #10 – Ford Theatre Reunion and the Delicious Aloysius

We’re back with another new episode and this week we feature an in depth look at the band Ford Theatre Reunion.  We join them on location at Common Grounds in Lexington, KY for an extended conversation about their history, where they are as a group and what it’s like to perform.  What evolved...

Let’s Talk Privacy

Privacy! Is the concept too “last century” to still be relevant? With all the kerfuffle today surrounding Google’s recent changes to their company policies, I thought this might be a good day to talk about the actual concept of privacy. It’s the old debate of curtains open vs. curtains closed,...

Episode #9 – Orgasms, Doctor Bombay and the Singapore Sling

Hello to you, our wonderful listeners.  We return once again with Episode #9 and this week we’re serving up a nice little orgasm for your personal pleasure.  Well, a discussion of orgasms anyway.  Ginny Tonic and Charlie dive directly into the topic after they cover all the events from an amazing (and...

A Life Less Ordinary

Charlie here! I thought I would stop by and share a little meandering, musing update today. Before I catch you up, I just want to say that, behind the scenes, Ginny has been having far too much fun writing. I can see it in her smile each time a new post hits the site and her enthusiasm for both this podcast...

Episode #8 – Physics, Google and an Astounding Bartender

In the heart of our Mardi Gras celebrations, we get our geek on this week as we discuss the ways Google is searching you and just how sexy Physics can be.  From there a call at the last possible moment takes us to a classic establishment to try a traditional cocktail from a very dapper bartender.  Add to...

Remembering Hilly Kristal And CBGB

I’ll get to CBGB in a moment… For a few years in the late 80’s I was lucky enough to run WRFL 88.1 FM in Lexington, KY as a general manager and serve as an on-air individual. Within the station’s studio a lot of history was made, but those are stories for another time. This evening,...

Episode #6 – Charlie Tonic Unveiled

Ginny Tonic and Charlie return for a new episode!  This week we introduce you to a cocktail named after the show itself as Calamity Dawn, the drink’s creator, joins us for part of the show.  In addition we take you to a Steampunk Salon, talk about the wonders of life, chat a bit about the new Avatar...

Older Than The Internet

Age is such a funny thing. Every day we get a bit older yet, for me, it just doesn’t feel that way. I don’t think I’ve ever felt younger or more alive than I am right now. This podcast came at a good time in my life as I feel I have a lot to say, it lets me talk about a mix of topics and...

Episode #5 – Aloysius, Random Drinks and a Little Romance

Ginny Tonic and Charlie return with their fifth episode and this week romance is in the air.  Well, romance novels at least as we ask if a book that turns you on can still be great litarature?  In this episode we also have our first guest as we pin down Aloysius and get him to discuss his recent travels to...
