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!
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!
One side is for the establishment and assigning names to the faces of vigilantes.
One side is for the freedom to do as you wish and the want to never compromise your values.
Today on the SomethingBlackerThanPreRecordedBlackSomethingLiveCastTimesInfinity…
Ok, let me clear that up a little…..
The forces of the podcasting elite have gathered together to form a union that no villain shall be able to tear asunder. One snivvling dude from Latvia or whatever.. maybe.. but VILLAINS, I SAY NAY! This week we are sharing the spotlight with:
BLACKER THAN BLACK TIMES INFINITY!
Join us as we go through Capt. America’s movie before the world hated him for no apparent reason. Prepare to have your brain hijacked and smash the Like button, fuck pumpkin.
The Somethings have found their way back in the alleys of Hells Kitchen, and who did we find there?
Of course, we found our favorite comic genius, none other than the arid-witted Tim Stevens!
So now that the dust has settled, the guns have been stashed, and the sais are buried – we are taking on Daredevil Season 2 and a whole shitton of ninjas. So walk with us Hand in Hand in this Foggy weather to our Castle, and be prepared to be Elektrafied by this Frank discussion! (…ok, i’ll stop… …karen page…)
Ok, here we go!
It is no surprise to anyone that the Somethings like comic things. Hell, they’ve done like 5 episodes about them already… so when the big mill started about Deadpool, it was a foregone conclusion that they were going to see it. So what did they think of the Merc With A Mouth?
..they obviously left nerd stains all over the seat in front of them..
Who said that? Anyway, breaking box office records and proving we DO need another hero.
..two podcasters enter, one podcaster leave..
No, seriously who keeps doing that!? Well, anyway, take a listen and find out what the boys think!
..ok, here we go!
THAT’S MY LINE!
Note: To see more of Reilly Brown‘s work – here is his home site (to request commissions) and here is where you can buy pages!
Put on your biggest smile, and join us once again as the Somethings delve into binge watching Netflix’s newest Marvel: Jessica Jones. What started as a noir take on the superhero world has taken television by storm as a story of the seedier, darker, and downright creepier parts of what great power means when you have little responsibility.
Joining us is honorary Something, friend, and comic book genius – @Ungajje himself: Tim Stevens.
Couple things to note – this show is long. We love talking with Tim, so even when we say ‘lets wrap it up.. there’s another 2 hours.’ Also, this show is SPOILERIFFIC. If you are 3 episodes in.. don’t listen. Go watch them. Then listen.
SWEET CHRISTMAS, Here we go!
There is a new world upon us. A world of heroes…. not just the high flying, super-galactic, high-tech type. There lives heroes among us on the streets.. and more importantly – on Netflix.
The Somethings have binged the newest show in the MCU and want to talk to you about it. So first, this show is laden with spoilers – you have been warned. From our opinions of the whole package, to our thoughts of what this means for the future of the Netflix comic shows.
This is also a first for the Somethings – we got ourselves a bonafide Daredevil expert! We would like to thank Marvel.com contributor, comic aficionado, force of nature, ‘Woo’ington’s own TIM STEVENS. You can find links to all of Tim’s work at his ABOUT.ME page, and follow his exploits via Twitter @Ungajje.
Ok, here we go!
We’re all nerds here. I think. I’d hope. Unless you like listening to shows about stuff you hate… which is a weird fetish, but we don’t judge.
Anyway, over the years we’ve all seen comic films we like. There are tons nowadays, and where our opinions may not always match on what the best are – a lot of us will agree on what the worst is. There are a fine selection of horrible comic films to pick for what are the worst, which is why Rob & Hatton have gotten together and discussed it… and in this episode you’ll not only hear about new information for the SomethingContest (find the link here) – you will also listen and be amazed about a comic movie you might not have been aware of! Hatton wasn’t… seriously!
WHERE WE LAST LEFT THE SOMETHINGS – They were hanging out at WildPigComics with guests, Owner Chris Eberle, Manager & Webcomicker Bill Ellis, and Hatton’s wifey Madison talking about the Marvel Movieverse!
They discussed all the things that happened before. Phase 1. What we know. What we’ve seen. What has been etched into our collective reptillian nerd brain. But what of things to come? What of Phase 2 and the completely mythical and rumor-milled Phase 3!?
Join us once again for the second part of our 1 Year Anniversary Spectacular!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SOMETHINGSOMETHINGCAST!
NOTE: As has been a theme of the first year of our show, technical difficulties always raise their pretty little heads, and there were times in the show where some microphones seemed to be at varying levels. I’ve done my best to even out the sound so everyone is audible, but that also has increased a certain amount of ambient noise. This will be fixed in future 1 year celebrations. – J
