Screen Shot 2015-02-04 at 3.01.26 PMWe chat with comic book artist Jeff Johnson and novelist Megan Crane. They have great insight into the creative process, some stellar techniques for procrastination, and a bit of industry dish…plus, they are warm and funny and we were instantly smitten with them (you will be, too).
Ship Your Enemies Glitter! Or just sell your business for $85K. Whatever.
Why the Age of the Kids Adventure Movie is Over
Lady Ghostbusters! You excited?

Episode 34 – Much Ado About Stalking

Much Ado About Stalking, Dick In A Box, Hannibal, Don Draper vs Peggy, new MySpace, summer movies, and TV both underrated & cancelled.

Recorded 6.14.13

Before we get all NSFW, how about Nancy B’s Science Club? For the smart young ladies in your life.
MySpace is new (yet) again!
San Diego Comic Con has a toy map for you. See ya there?
We figured out where Joss Whedon lives, based on the awesome Much Ado About Nothing filmed at his home (and with a little help from Google).  Yes, we’re stalkers. Don’t let that scare you away from this gorgeous interpretation. Viva Joss!
Chronicle is an entertaining movie.
You can watch Hannibal in a million places for free: Hulu, Amazon, NBC, etc. Best new series in a while. Do it.
The Killing, too…you will need to hit Netflix.

 

 

Episode 29 – Feliz Año Nuevo

Welcome to 2013! Wishing you all the best movies, music, TV, books, art in the new year…plus Liam Neeson’s cock.

Recorded 1.11.13

As big fans of Hollywood Babble On, Kevin Smith, and Ralph Garman, the least we can do is share in their affection for Liam Neeson’s private parts. Which, the man himself admits matter-o-factly in an interview, is pretty huge. (For HBO’s “Liam Neeson’s cock is so big…” website gag, check it out! [See what we did there?])
DUDE. Robotech. Fan-made trailer for non-existent movie which – fingers crossed – may happen.
If you’re a hip hop fan, check out The Art of Rap.
Highclere Castle is the Downtown Abbey digs. Tour it! (Or at least check out some beautiful shots.)
King of the Nerds. New TV show on TBS.
We love our local museum: LACMA! Couple awesome exhibits right now, including the Kubrick one.
Games Lisa is playing: The Walking Dead, Little Big Planet. Got any suggestions?

Don’t miss the LA Ink Stains Prom! Or the super awesome comic book.
