It’s Hatton’s Birthday Month, so we decided to talk about one of his favorite movies of all time.
What happens when a brilliant mad man opens up his chocolate factory for the first time in years? Oh, a bunch of kids get tortured… basic stuff. And please note, we’re talking about the 70’s Gene Wilder version because that is the only version.
Get ready for a little Pure Imagination… with Something In Review #8: Willy Wonka
That’s right, it’s time for one of those shows that was inevitable. It’s Clan Hatton & Clan McRob as we talk about one of the most long-legged, long-lived, fantasy… sci-fi *sigh* series that defined many a’geek.
It’s Highlander time!
So grab your katana and beware the planet Zeist.. the boys are Gathering.
And if you worry about anything.. just realize.. it’s a kind of magic!
The two men, armed with their wits, a giant sword, a couple of shields, a nearly dead horse, and on they went to the mysterious fantastical land of magic and creatures that could tear them asunder without even blinking. Yet, here they go… the Somethings are taking a journey into the land of fantasy. They will climb grand mountains to deposit jewelry, they’ll go to school to face he who probably shouldn’t be mentioned. They’ll rip a sword out of a rock in the hopes to ascend to royalty.
It’s time for the Somethings to be what they haven’t been before… Fantastic.
Sometimes the Somethings aren’t the most prepared of all podcasts. I mean, there are some shows out there that do tons of research and preprep and all that.. well, it should be known by now that the boys sometimes are a little more ‘fly by the seat of their pants’ kinda guys.
So, this week we try something altogether new… the RANDOM WHEEL OF STUFF!
I know the title & picture kinda gives it away, but try and act surprised anyway, ok?
If there is something that brings us all together it’s our collective love of nerddom, and nothing speaks to the deep spine of that nerdyness then books about elves, warriors, barbarians, dwarves, mages, and kender going on a mission to save the world!
Two footnotes: Given its obscurity, you can find our end of show song by Pyramaze, right here.
And lastly, Hatton is trying to push a new project – a Choose your Own Adventure for adults. He’s crowdfunding it, so it won’t happen without your help! Give it a look at DecideYourFate.net
