With the state of things, it didn’t feel right or respectful to post Rob and I talking about our usual pop culture nonsense. Instead, we are taking part in #PodcastBlackout by talking less and listening more.
Joining us this week is stand-up comedian and New Jersey native, Gordon Baker-Bone talking about the murder of George Lloyd, racism past present and future, and what we can do to help today and tomorrow. You can find Gordon on Instagram and Twitter and you most definitely should.
Sometimes, the Somethings need a little cultural – and given that normally they are as cultured as a strep throat test, they need to bring in the big guns.
Joining the boys this week is the long-time friend of the show, Meredith Placko – host, geek of all colors, and one half of the model paint powerhouse TurboDork. One of her nerddom dujours is historical fashion – so it felt like she was the prime candidate as we get down and discuss Period Films.
So get yourself some absinthe, a powdered wig, a ten pound bag of boning, and get ready to talk about the past!
There’s a new show that has become must-see–TV for Hatton & PCR, and it is Lego Masters (on Fox & Hulu). Every week, teams of two are competing building crazy Lego builds and only one team is going to come out on top.
Well, our guest this week just so happens to be one of the competitors who has been killing it with her teammate Sam. Jessica Ragzy Ewud (ragzyart.com) joins us to talk about Lego Masters, the art world, and a whole lot more…
So get yourself a pair of headphones, a box of bricks, and listen while you build…
Is this the same powerhouse that was Jekyll? It’s got the same team, as well as longtime Dr. Who showrunner in Stevan Moffat… so why don’t we take a ship across the country and tell you all what Hatton & PCR think.
Before we get to the episode, we just want to mention a charity that our guest this week mentions: GAMES FOR LOVE, a charity that provides not just games, but camps for programming and coding, to kids in hospitals around the world to ease their stresses through gaming. Please, give it a look and a share.
On to the matter at hand… Tabletop RPG is in a new heyday… all those years where the only problem with sitting and rolling dice with friends was that you couldn’t get people together – well now, you can watch roleplayers roleplay all over the internet!
If you do dig on streaming tabletop, you have probably heard of our guest, B. Dave Walters aka Victor Temple on LA By Night, a canonical Vampire: The Masquerade game streaming with Geek & Sundry (If you haven’t watched, you can start right here!) They have just started their new Chapter, which you can watch live on Friday nights – or B. Dave Storytelling his game on Queue Times.
Do you enjoy comics? Do you enjoy the off-stage opinions of comics?
Well we have show friend Kevin Gootee (@KevinGootee) back talking about his Amazon Prime series, now in its 7th season, Comics Watching Comics. Featuring all new comics, all new critique, but even more funny. So Kevin hangs out with the Somethings and we talk not just comedy, but pop culture, movies, sports and more.
Also, please check out Livestream For The Cureon May 17th – 19th – great people with a great cause. We’ll be on Saturday, May 18th from 9:30pm-10pm, but we encourage you to check out all the great shows and segments streaming that weekend!
The Somethings are in the same studio for the first time in a long time. For such a momentous occasion, we have gotten ourselves a fantastic guest in the way of Kyle Hester.(@KyleDHester) Now,you might not be aware of Kyle, but you will be soon. With multiple movies on their way to your streaming and movie viewing world. Today, he is promoting Preacher Six (@PreacherSix), an action-creature-intense feast. Before you dive in to the episode, check out the trailer below, and help them wi0th their last round of crowdfunding to make their dream a reality!
We talk movies, sports, the hard journey of Hollywood, and Kyle helps us out with a new feature: Wheel vs. Wheel!
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.
This week, the Somethings had the pleasure to hang out with Kevin Gootee, a stand-up who is doing something pretty original on Amazon Prime.
Every episode features one or two stand-ups doing a set while Kevin and his panel talk about what they did right and what they did wrong. From constructive criticism to out and out wrecking, for a fan of comedy, it is a unique take on the artform.
If you haven’t seen it, the new season is going to be appearing any minute now… but until then, catch up with Seasons 1 – 4 and then go follow Kevin Gootee (@KevinGootee) or go checkout the site at Comics Watching Comics.
Last but not least – if you are a stand-up comic who wants to give it a shot.. first, go watch the show. Trust us, know what you are walking into. Then, submit your information to firstname.lastname@example.org – you must have been a working comic for the last three years, but if you think you got it… you go get it!
The rules you need to know:
– You have to invite them in
– You’ll never see them in front of a mirror
– If you stake them, they will die
– Go sparingly on the garlic
I am course am talking about the Somethings, who are back with an episode about the monster movie’verses grand pappy of em all, the Vampire!
We are in the horrortastic best month of the year when it comes to popping on your favorite fright fest and that’s exactly what we decided to do with the batty, glittery, dark lords of the macbre. So settle in for this spooktacular movie party with AfterBuzzTVand Silver Scream’s own Megan Salinas (@themenguin) to bring her horror loving pedigree to add in to our own.
Know what I hate about these podcasts… too many damn vampires.
