In the wake of Nerd-Cane Adventures: FanExpo Toronto 2013, I had some odds and sodds kicking around the 'ole brain matter that I thought I would spew forth here so as to start with a bit of a clean slate. With that in mind I have mashed together a TV Tuesday, Book Bwednesday & Thur-Video-Games Day! I discuss:
Children s Hospital (Seasons 1-3),
"Time's Eye" by Arthur C. Clarke & Stephen Baxter (Book #1 of the Time Odyssey Trilogy),
Bit.Trip Presents Runner 2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien,
Jet Set Radio, and
A very super special episode of The Lackadaisical Librocubicularist Podcast that I am of course releasing in conjunction with:
or if you prefer the Facebook Version;
I can honestly not say enough (and I do a lot in the podcast!) how nice and kind all the people I came in contact with over the course of the weekend were!
None of this nerdy "entertainment" would even exists if it were not for all of you!
A Very Sincere Thank You!
This year marks a series of firsts including being my biggest yet in terms of the sheer amount I managed to fit in to this adventure as well as getting in some what I like to call "Nerdy Cross-Pollination"... Specifically with:
-> If you are at all serious about Cosplaying you probably have already seen their incredible work and if you have not I highly recommend you check out their Facebook & Flickr accounts to see what some professional photos look like! Please do not compare his shots to closely to mine!
Nerd-Cane will be making an appearance on the various Cosplayers Canada sites so look forward to that!
Further plugs go out to all the other kind people who I interacted with and gave me their cards! Further intermingling of audiences abounds!
This TV Tuesday episode features a TV show viewed through both my cable box as well as my internet box. I yearn for the day when TV is downloaded directly to my brain box... I discuss:
Holmes Makes it Right, and
Life of Mammals with David Attenborough.
(Editors Note: Mr. Maywood Said "Chavalier" instead of "Chuvalo" multiple times... the idiot!)
Life is like a Die Hard movie. You may not know what you are gonna get BUT you can make some educated guesses as to what to expect and usually be fairly accurate... I discuss:
A Good Day to Die Hard, and
"When one 'laughs' at things from the internet one often is only expelling more air from their nose than usual." - Breath out some extra air in this Fri-Internet Day episode where I discuss:
Nerdist & V-Sauce: All Star Celebrity Bowling,
TARDIS in Space Kickstarter,
If I Were You, and
WTF with Marc Maron.
I like weird things.
I like books. I am no
math-a-magician but these things combined in a weird-book are obviously gonna
hit some of my “Like” buttons! I discuss:
"King Rat" by China Miéville
4 out of 5 movies in
this Movie Monday episode feature people fighting for their lives. The 5th features someone fighting
for laughs. Only one person is
successful. I discuss:
It's A Disaster,
Tom Poppa Live,
Hostel III, and
Enter the Void.
"Overly Attached Girlfriend" and "Bad Luck Brian" went on a blind date and the interent imploded...In the aftermath I discuss:
Septimus Prank Calls Libraries,
Epic MealTime: Meatball DeathSub,
Normal Difficulty: Slenderman the Arrival,
V-Sauce: What Would We Miss?, and
Adam Sessler & Sid Meir havachat.
The "Summer Steam Sale
" has become so synonymous with gamer's having both their time and money sucked out of their very exsistence that it has become a meme!
I discuss my contribution to Gabe in this Thur-Video-Games Day episode when I review:
FTL: Faster then Light,
Post Script: I think for the first time ever I forgot to mention today's sponsor! Uh. Oh. I do so here to make up for it... Today's sponsor is The Robotic Unicorn
Sci-Fi & Fantasy Video-Game Expo!
Two of the following movies have bloody chainsaw deaths and two of them have lone, mostly silent killers on missions of vengeance. All four were watched by me on the weekend and are discussed in this Movie Monday episode! They Are:
Evil Dead (2013),
The Limits of Control, and
The Great Silence.
