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. 

Batman MaybeThe following is an interview with Wesley Freitas, co-creator and star of "Batman Maybe," a hysterical parody of Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" featuring the characters of The Dark Knight Rises.  In this interview, Fanboy Comics Managing Editor Barbra Dillon chats with Freitas about the inspiration behind the music video, the process for collecting the amazing sets and costumes, and fan response from the Batman community!

Cards Against HumanityThe following is an interview with Eli Halpern, one of the many creators of Card Against Humanity, a self-described "party game for horrible people."  In this interview, Fanboy Comics' Sam Rhodes talks with Halpern about how the hit game got its start, the various ways that you can acquire a copy, and when you can expect the gold-plated shark-hide edition to hit store shelves.
