Don't touch Books & S--t or you'll get burned, as Brian and Sam drink their way through another amazing episode, this time welcoming special guest Joe LeFavi, transmedia guru and Founder and Ambassador of Awesome of Quixotic Transmedia.  They discuss recent food-based news stories, namely the True Blood cookbook and the decision that Chicken Soup for the Soul will actually make soup.  The trio also drunkenly debates the changing face of entertainment consumption, the potential of transmedia, and the author Joe LeFavi would most like to have an affair with.

Kitty and BatzHello, all! Welcome to another issue of Indie and the Geek.  This week I sat down with Richard Zerga and Kristi “Batz” Zerga to discuss their upcoming indie works this September and their very own indie publisher. Here’s how it all went down.  

 

Wonder Ellen MT"When you're alone,
And life is making you lonely,
You can always go downtown.
When you've got worries,
All the noise and the hurry,
Seem to help, I know, downtown . . ."

So go the lyrics to Petula Clark's famous pick-me-up song, "Downtown," and the same could be said about Ellen DeGeneres' feel-good afternoon talk show.  If you lost your job, your car won't start, or your freakin' hairdresser cut your bangs too short, Ellen can turn all of that around.

In this episode of the scalding hot, new podcast celebrating our love of literature and booze, Brian & Sam welcome special guest author Gretchen McNeil (Possess, Ten) and focus on the growing trend of Twitter chats as book promotion and publicity (Tor Chat, Random House Chat).  They also discuss Gretchen's favorite literary heroine, who ACTUALLY wrote To Kill A Mockingbird, and also go through the steps of performing a Christian exorcism as dictated by Wiki-how.

 

 

 

Going Gagag SE MTAfter the all-seeing eye of Lady Gaga discovered a copy of Michael Troy's comic book tribute Going Gaga! at San Diego Comic-Con, she tweeted, "So cool.  Someone found this at Comic-Con.  Can I buy it?  Pleasssee!!!"

The tweet heard 'round the virtual world had little monsters clamoring to find a copy for Mother Monster and perhaps get their little paws on a copy of their own.  The small indie comic immediately sold out and left everyone wanting more!

In the inaugural episode of this new podcast celebrating our love of literature and booze, Brian and Sam welcome special guest author Justin Robinson (Undead on Arrival) and focus on NPR's recent Top 100 Teen Books list.  They also discuss Justin’s zombie apocalypse plan, their favorite teen books, and a bunch of other s--t!

 

 

 

Stan Lee centerfold Wiggle wiggle wiggle wiggle yes!  Make mine Marvel.  If you are reading this, I need not explain Stan Lee's contribution to Marvel and his relevancy to comics in general.  I fear that without Stan, we would be relegated to Marmaduke and Garfield for our insatiable comic fix . . . not that there is anything wrong with that!

 

Peter ShinkodaHey, gang!  Welcome to another issue of Indie and the Geek. As part of the way I have Indie and the Geek arranged, I will be bringing in different indie friends who have made it happen in the mainstream by keeping the DIY mentality. As such, in this issue I’ve sat down with my Vancouver bud Peter Shinkoda from Falling Skies and Mortal Kombat: Legacy to bring you an interview that I hope will inspire you all to keep fighting the good fight.

 

Paranorman MTAnyone who knows me needs no sixth sense to know that I am obsessed with the paranormal. Paranormal Witness, Paranormal State, Haunted Collector, Haunted Highway, School Spirits . . . and especially TLC's freakin' Long Island Medium. I will watch anything to do with the paranormal.  So, it should come as no shock that I absolutely adored Universal Studios' ParaNorman, written and directed by Chris Butler.

SharkWeek25 MTIt's hard to believe that The Discovery Channel's Shark Week turns 25 this week. I guess it's further difficult to imagine sharks have been around for hundreds of millions of years, far outlasting many an inferior species. 

My love affair with sharks began with Jaws 2 when my parents took my siblings and me to see it at the drive-in movie theater. (Yes, I'm dating myself, and if you aren't sure what a drive-in is, go change your diaper and then google it!)
