WELCOME TO SEPTEMBER!
We have a few things to talk about, and we get into it in the first ten of the episode, but maybe you read these things… do you? I never know.
Anyway, September is an important month for the Somethings.. we are now EVERY GAW’DARN WEEK! ..sort of.
Every week on your RSS Feed (or however you get your Something) you are going to get 4 “shows”
SomethingCast – Our bread and butter format of babbling incoherently about weird things we like.
Dramatic-ish Readings – A unique monologue featuring characters that weren’t in the movie you’re listening to.
Something In Review – A new review of a new or old film, revisited or discussed for the first time!
The End – Where we watch the last episode of a show.. again, sometimes without having seen anything else.
But today, you get SUPERHEROES! More specifically, Superhero Teams. There have been hundreds of teams and line-ups of teams, and we settle in and discuss some of our favorites. Whether you dig on Byrne’s X-Men or Giffen’s Justice League, there is likely some detail we have screwed up.
So put on your cape, because it’s time to fly…
Ok, here we go!
It was inevitable… them making a Deadpool 2. So join the Somethings as they sit and breakdown the Merc With A Mouth’s Second Attempt At Greatness!
And where that’s the bulk of the episode, there is a lot more to talk about.
This episode, for the foreseeable, is the last for Podcast Rob. As you’ll hear as the bookends to our discussion about Deadpool, sometimes you just need to shuffle some things up to make life work, and for now, the show has to go. I (this is Hatton by the way) wish him nothing but the best. I hope once his world settles down, he’ll come back around, if I have a microphone, there will always be a second one waiting for him.
With that said, at the time of this recording, Rob’s father was hospitalized due to a constant battle with cancer. Since the recording of this episode, his father has passed. On behalf of Rob and his sister, I’ve set up this GoFundMe account to help them keep their head above water through these hard times. If you can, please help out.
Now – with all that said…
Here we go!
First off. SPOILERS.
I mean, there won’t be any in this paragraph, but in this episode – we barely get 3 minutes in before we’re all ‘Thanos killed Dumbledore’ and ‘Captain America was Bruce Willis the whole time’. It’s like we have done our best to keep our silence to wait for this very episode!
And better than bursting with excitement, just the two of us, we brought along some friends!
We have Kristel (Twitter: @yeagerkristel) and Nicole (Twitter: @nicole4783) from Two Girls, One Mic, which you can find on the Geeks World Wide Podcast Network (thegww.com) and they hang with us and talk about our favorite moments, the moments that fell short, and nerd out over the decade it took for us to get here.
So grab your Tesseract, snap your fingers, and ok, here we go!
Ten years in the making culminates this week.
So what are the Somethings going to do? They’re going to breakdown the entirety of the MCU into easily digestible chunks and rate every movie that has lead up to the Infinity War!
Who made it into Hatton and Rob’s top 3? Well, you are about to find out. So get your bling’d out glove, and lets Assemble.
But before we do, go check out Hatton’s debut novel, TRIO, available on Amazon Kindle.
And, more importantly, be sure to check out the Epic Film Guys, Livestream For The Cure. Help them fight raise awareness and money to help fight cancer.
With all that said… let’s get to ranking!
Ok, here we go!
You seem to be doing ok. You’re taking some anger management courses. The agency is doing ok. You have an associate in Malcolm. What could go wrong?
Probably a bad question in Hells Kitchen, eh?
That’s right, the Somethings are back tackling the hard drinking hard hitting purple fearing badass bitch of the Netflix MU, and we tell you what we think from top to bottom. Did we love it? Did we hate it? There’s only one way to find out. Smile and click below.
Two quick asides. The first, we want to congratulate our sponsor Quixotic Games for selling out of the first printing of Dungeon Alliance. Here’s to a hundred more.
Second, at the beginning of the episode there are a couple of words about our friends the Epic Film Guys. Please, check out their Livestream For The Cure on May 18-20th.
Now though… time to go!
It’s time for a little one batch two batch…
And if you are a fan of the show, you know what that means. Marvel episode. Netflix episode. Oh.. that’s right.. Tim Stevens Episode.
The three of us slowly pick apart the enemy and drive our hammers hard into the bones of the newest Netflix Marvel U show. Did lightning strike again like it did with Daredevil or did it swing and miss like Iron Fist? Shots will be fired, so get yourselves cocked, locked, and loaded… …uhm..gun.
If you want a little background on our favorite Marvel buddy, you can find out about Mr. Steven’s Curricula Vitae at Tim Stevens Is Ungajje – His work at Marvel.com – Or lastly, be his friend on Twitter.
Last but not least, we would like to welcome our new sponsor: Quixotic Games and their new game Dungeon Alliance, available for order at your local gaming spot.
Ok here we go!
As has become a tradition of the Somethingcast, we watch a lot of Netflix.
That’s not the tradition.. it’s a fact.. but it isn’t the tradition I’m speaking of. I’m talking about when a new Marvel show appears on our queue, we call on the one and only @Ungajje himself, Tim Stevens. If you aren’t aware of Tim’s work at Marvel.com, just go.. we’ll wait.
But for a show like Iron Fist where there is so much to unpack, we needed someone to balance out our chi when it came to the martial arts featured in the show, so we also called in @KungFuDriveIn, himself, Jeof Vita. If you aren’t aware of Jeof’s podcast, Kung-Fu Drive-In, just go.. we’ll wait.
The four of us have been chosen to Defend you from what is to come next… unless you already watched Iron Fist. Then you’re beyond our help.
So spoilers abound, but no matter what… ok, here we go!
They say you aren’t supposed to judge a book by its cover… well guess what… 5% of a comic book is it’s cover, so how about we judge a book by 5% of its content?
This week, the Something’s are going to the land of funnybooks where we discuss not the greatest covers that have ever come to comicdom, but our favorites. From Marvel to DC and everything in between – here are some of the comic covers that shaped our world. We’ve done our best to give you all of the information you need to follow along..
Ok, here we go!
When Netflix calls – we move forward. Always forward.
You are correct, the boys are back with the newest installment in the Netflix Marvel Universe. We have seen what goes down in Hell’s Kitchen. We have had our Alias investigated. Now it is time to check out who runs Harlem.
As has become a SomethingCast tradition, we can’t take on a character like Cage without a little help, so we brought our favorite dulcet toned delight, Tim ‘Ungaije’ Stevens (Check out his Psyche Ward at Marvel!). Please settle in while we talk the history of the character, the concepts of the show, the connections with the Marvel U, and more.
How does Cage rank amongst the rest – now’s the time to find out with your Podcast For Hire.
Ok, here we go!
Three Years Ago….
A former podcaster, writer, and internet weirdo Rev. James was lingering in a local watering hole when he heard a voice he hadn’t heard in years. The bombastic laughter of one Mr. Podcast Rob.
Considering the idea of getting back into the podcast game, over the course of the next few times hanging out, the idea became clear.
After a meeting of the minds (or whatever it is they have in their skulls) – The SomethingCast was born.
Well join us once again as we celebrate our leather anniversary. (Yeah, it’s leather.. look it up.. don’t make anything of it) We’re back at the Something’s home away from home, Wildpig Comics in Kenilworth, NJ with store owner Chris and manager Bill talking the last year of comickiness in front of a live audience.
Also a quick shoutout to friend and regular Tim ‘Ungaije’ Stevens who wasn’t able to make it – but we’ll make sure to get him back on the line soon to be smarter than us.
And to all of you who have supported us over the years – be you friend, family, fan, podcast – thank you. We couldn’t do it without you.
Well – ok – here we go!
