One More Reason I Am A Whedon Fan

I openly admit that I am a DIE HARD Joss Whedon fan. That said, there have been moments when I’ve been lukewarm to some of his work in comics (Buffy over at Dark Horse being a clear exception), but his television work remains some of my favorite series of all time. My library shelves are lined with...

Silent Shadow of the Bat

How about some cool comic related video? These three come to us by way of a pointer from the very talented Lexington, KY based comic creator and writer RD Hall. Here’s how the original creator of this video series explains the creation… Parts one and two are halves of a 12 minute short depicting...

Into The Wild

I woke up this morning thinking about a film I’ve seen several times. The fact that I watched it twice in just the past week and find it moving up my top 10 favoriate films list may explain why it’s so central to my thinking right now. This very interesting film is Into the Wild. Theatrical...

Guilty Pleasure #326… Convoy!

This week on the show, Ginny and I plan to have a discussion of fun obsessions.  Today, I’d like to share a post about that particular topic’s ugly cousin, guilty pleasures.  For me, I have to admit there are a lot in my life.  I’m often corny and a bit sentimental.  I’m okay with...

Gem City Comic Con

  Charlie and I had a great weekend at Gem City Comic Con with Aloysius Fox. Thanks again to Calamity Dawn and her lovely family for putting us up for the weekend and extra big thanks to John and Kim Wilson for running the Comic Related table all weekend. We couldn’t do it without all of you....

End of the Century

I’ve spent a lot of my life around education in one form or another. Sexy topic, right? But wait, I’m headed somewhere interesting. Whether it be the grade school years or college or my eventual career in higher education, for me life has almost always been around or near students and spring...

A Zombie Top 5

On this week’s episode, Ginny Tonic and I have a solid little discussion focused on zombies, zombie culture, zombie theory and zombie fandom. I’m not going to spoil that chat here, but I will say that I have a “guilty pleasure” level connection to these fine, feral, femur filleting,...

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...

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...

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,...

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...

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,...

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...
