Post SDCC wrap-up episode! We discuss the Batman vs. Superman trailer, Star Wars, and all manner of nerdy goodness coming out of California this week! We also talk about our struggles when creating video game character, how Jacob got a free Surface, and Franko gives us an EXCELLENT two-part question of the week! We also have a guest theme song this week with The Embraced – Carry Me Away! Be sure to check out the song on iTunes, as The Embraced will be donating 100% of the proceeds from the sale of this song to the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance (http://www.ovariancancer.org). Should you wish to also make a donation to OCNA, we highly encourage it! Great song and a great cause! Enjoy, kinds, and as always, #keephopealive!
SUPER LONG episode this week! We recorded remotely Thursday, but the last half hour of Jacob’s audio got cut off inexplicably, so we got together Saturday and now you get two and a half episodes in one! We discuss the goings-on at San Diego Comic Con, Rick Flair, get a little political, and answer Franko’s QotW from two weeks ago! There’s also a NEW question of the week in between the first and second episode in this recording, and it’s BRILLIANT, so check it out! Enjoy, kids, and as always, #keephopealive!
So, I wanted to write a few things down since it’s been a few weeks since we’ve gotten to record. I believe this is called “blogging.” Never heard of it. Adulting is for the birds, especially when it comes to podcast scheduling. Speaking of birds……
I watched Jurassic World (as did most everyone on the planet) and I was actualy pleasantly surprised. Significantly better than I expected, considering I had more interest in watching water boil than seeing that film. Chris Pratt was a paint by numbers action guy, but decent enough. Bryce Dallas Howard was your typical career obsessed damsel in distress. The two kids were you’re typical kids who’s parents should be getting divorced. Visual effects were good. The military sub-plot was pretty thin. Oh well. It’s making a gazillion dollars and I’m sure they’ll do another one.
I also watched Terminator: Genisys. Pretty much made no sense, but it was also better than I expected, considering I’d rather watch Jurassic World than see that film. If you don’t care at all about T1 or T2, or if you are just in for turning your chip off and watching a fun action flick, this might work for you. Arnie vs Arnie was fun to see. Khalessi was fair enough (no dragons though) and that dude from the last Die Hard flick… I’m not even gonna finish typing that.
That’s about it for now kids. I’m gonna go back to re-watching Parks and Rec for the 5th time. Make sure you submit your responses to Franko’s Question of the Week to firstname.lastname@example.org. Feel free to comment on this post and share your thoughts as well. This new “blogging” thing might be something we all three keep doing in the future, if you’re all hungry for it. Hooray for gay marriage! Talk to you all soon. #keephopealive
E3 talk all over this podcast! We break it down into likes, dislikes, what we’re hopeful for coming out of this year’s conference, we make up some new anatomical changes to video game press releases, and Jacob lets us in on a (bad?) habit he’s had for a while now, ending with Franko’s Question of the Week at the very end of the podcast! Enjoy, kids, and as always, #keephopealive!
We are ALL OVER THE PLACE in this episode! Chris gives us a food theory that we never knew we’d experienced before, we talk about what’s going on in the DC comics universe, and smack-talk Ant-Man and Gotham for a bit! Enjoy, kids, and as always, #keephopealive!
